Zucchini Miso

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
I skipped the sesame seeds and nori for ease, and this was still a winner. It was slightly salty for my tastes (a function of the miso, as far as I can tell) but otherwise great. Also, I mixed all the dressing ingredients except the broth together, then eyeballed the amount of broth to get the desired consistency (since other reviewers had warned 1/4c was too much). Everyone loved it!

Grilled Salmon Steaks with Savory Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Following everyone's suggestions, I used only 2 tbsp balsamic. At that amount, I thought it balanced the blueberries fine. Overall, the taste was unusual, which I appreciated, but still not necessarily something I would want to make again.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
The beets definitely were much harder than the potatoes.

Lemon Curd Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
Too much crust, not enough lemon! I left out ~ 1/4 of the top layer crust, and it was still too much of the dough aspect, and not enough flavor. I would suggest doubling the lemon curd and keeping the amount of dough the same.

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
I think this was too creamy. It smelled delicious before I added the cream. (I had used vegetable stock for the broth.) Maybe next time I'll just make it w/o the cream. Also didn't add the spinach because it was already very bulky before I got to that step.

Grilled Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
This had no flavor! I don't know what I did wrong, but it didn't taste like anything at all. Not worth the effort of mucking about with the asparagus at all.

Blackberry-Chocolate Chip Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Super easy, which means extra points. The flavor is very basic, but good. Got mixed reactions -- some really liked the berry/choco flavor combo, others hated it. I liked it, so I'll def make again! Served warm with some whipped cream on top...

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
My family *demolished* this dish -- they couldn't stop raving. I used the full amt of liquid (vegetable broth) but then cooked it down. Figured it might give the veggie filling more flavor. Also dumped in one zucchini and a package of mushrooms, which I think added a good amount of heft. The mixture of mozzarella and feta on top, as well as the artichokes, really gave a great flavor.

Fruit and Cream Pie I

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
5 stars because it was soooo easy and delicious. It doesn't look super elegant, though, so I wouldn't necessarily make it to impress people. I used a chocolate graham cracker crust, which went well with the strawberry flavor. I didn't have confectioner's sugar so I just used Splenda. I was worried about the result, but it still came out great.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I made this without the cumin and it was completely flavorless. With the cumin, the dish is much better -- zippy with flavor -- but the first taste is still bland.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Like others, I didn't precook the potatoes. Just put them in a dish, poured the sauce over and baked for an hour or so. Also added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, as well as pecans to the top. Came out exactly as I expected.

Baked Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I followed the suggestion to bake for half the time w/tin foil cover and then remove the foil. Kept the feta looking good. Overall, the fish looked beautiful -- the presentation aspect was tops. And the taste was yummy, too. (I left out the olives bc I hate them and no one missed them.)

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Per everyone else's suggestion, I used 2 jars of sauce and 2 cups of cheese for the sauce mixture. I also added a layer of spinach, mushrooms, onion and zucchini and increased the amount of spices. (used cinnamon instead of nutmeg w/no problem.) Turned out great.

Sweet Onion BBQ Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
I only used 1c. bbq sauce for the marinade but found that was excessive. Could've easily used 1/2 that amount. The burgers were good, though, and definitely filling.

Classy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I thought it was too runny and didn't like the flavor of the French style green beans at all.

Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I doubled the spices and omitted the butter. It was absolutely delicious and flavorful that way. In the future I would substantially cut down the amount of olive oil put in the baking dish -- it was unnecessary. Can't wait to make this again!

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
The sauce was good but definitely could have used more kick. Next time I will toss in some chili powder and more cumin etc.
