Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This cake wasn't very good straight out of the oven (it felt wet), but it was really great after it sat in the refridgerator overnight. I frosted it with chocolate frosting and I preheated the oven.

Chinese Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I left out the salt but this was still way too salty. It doesn't need nearly that much black bean sauce.

Midsummer Night's Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This was awesome! It's the only salad I've ever had actual cravings for. My husband didn't like it because he doesn't like mint. But if you like mint, you need to try this! It's a little sweet, a little sour, and overall delicious.

Asian Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
To me, it doesn't taste much like restaurant versions, but it's still good. As written it's a bit sweet. I like it with about 1/2 the soy sauce, 1/2 the honey, and twice the ginger.

Artichoke Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
These were the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. Even better than the ones loaded down with cheese and ranch dressing. And WAY healthier!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I've made this a few times now. As written, it was pretty good. Substituting half the mayo with sour cream added a lot to it. Doing that, plus taking out garlic pepper and replacing it with minced garlic and black pepper and topping it with mozzarella and parmesan plus adding paprika on top would make it five stars in my opinion.

Mom's Best Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I added oregano and bell peppers and black olives. The sauce tasted okay. It wasn't really worth the effort to me, though. I don't think I liked the baking soda. I used a tiny amount and let it cook for over half-an-hour after I added the last pinch, but it just did something I didn't like. I'm going to stick with simpler recipes.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
These are really chocolatey. I can't really describe them as cake-like or fudgey...they seem to be in between. Made this as written except I followed someone's advice about mixing the zucchini and salt together first and letting it sit while you mix the other stuff. I didn't make the icing but they are good without it, and amazing warmed up and topped with some vanilla frozen yogurt. Oh, my husband loves them, and he was extremely skeptical about the zucchini in there and I'm sure he was concentrating on trying to taste it, so that shows the taste is covered up really well.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Made this almost as written but with ground turkey. Left out the chile paste and the cooking oil (didn't see a reason for it, or maybe turkey just doesn't need it). I just put it over a bunch of lettuce like a salad and it was good. I think next time I'll use more ginger, but that's because I really love ginger.

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I used whole wheat angel hair pasta and ground black pepper instead of crushed red pepper flakes. Used the dried basil and didn't measure anything. It was good.

Glasser's Greek Marlin

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
This was delicious. I used olive oil instead of butter. I didn't measure anything and think I used more garlic and less basil than called for. The tomato goes really good with the swordfish. It also goes great mixed in some brown rice and served on the side.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I used applesauce instead of oil and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips instead of 1 cup dates. Also added some cinnamon and nutmeg. Had to cut the cooking time in half from what it says in the recipe. I and my husband both like them. They're a good alternative since we're both trying to eat healthier. With the chocolate chips and the bit of sweetness that comes from the applesauce, we don't miss the refined sugar and other junk that's usually in cookies.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I mixed everything together and poured it over the salmon and it turned out good. Honestly, I think that helped because some of the dill weed and lemon juice ran off, and it was still a little strong for us. My husband and I also like it using olive oil instead of butter.

Best Grilled Margarita Chicken... Ever!

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I cubed the chicken breasts and marinated it in this for fondue. It worked really good! I didn't have any triple sec or orange juice, so I just used a little extra lime juice and tequila. It marinated for about 9 hours and the flavor was great in vegetable oil fondue. I'm actually baking my other two chicken breasts in the leftover marinade to take for lunch on Monday.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
This was really good. I used the ingredients as listed, except I always use reduced-sodium soy sauce in everything and had to substitute garlic powder. I didn't cook it as directed, though. After microwaving the marinade and pouring it over the thin-sliced chicken, I just stuck the whole thing in the oven for awhile. Then I took it out and put it on the stove top until it kind-of glazed. With this cooking method there was plenty of marinade and a nice strong flavor. The only thing is the sesame oil is a little too strong like this. I will cut it in half next time, since we don't actually own a grill and I'll just be making it in the oven.

Crispy Edamame

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
These are a really good snack. I've never cooked with soybeans before but wanted to try it. Now I'll have to buy a bag every week!
