Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This totally failed to caramelize, and after storing it in the fridge overnight, the onions had turned gray.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I followed the recipe to a T and they came out completely inedible.

Muhammara

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
This recipe is definitely missing roasted red peppers. I used a recipe from another site that called for them. I think this is the kind of dish that you either love or hate.

Dulcia Domestica

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
This was amazing! I didn't grind up the nuts -- just stuffed them in whole. Also used much less wine and honey than called for, and it was still plenty. I served this with little toothpicks stuck in and it was beautiful and delicious. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether this should be served as a side dish or dessert!

Spinach Salad with Peaches and Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I used a bottled poppyseed dressing and the salad was fairly unspectacular. Next time I'll try it with my homemade dressing, which I think might give better results.

Couscous, Cranberry, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Easy and delicious! Next time I might add a bit of finely shredded carrot. Only tip is to be sure that your cuke is diced quite small, to match the size of the raisen bits, otherwise it's a bit awkward to chew. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Total disaster. This was inedible. The bottom layer was a gummy mess, and the whole thing wasn't sweet at all, despite the vast amounts of sugar. Hugely disappointing.

Spanish Moroccan Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
AMAZING. I used only 1.5lbs fish but kept all the veg and spice amounts the same and it was delicious. Did the veggie step the night before, then baked the fish w/veg on top (in some veg broth) for 30 min @ 375 right before serving. This was definitely spicy, and I might cut down on cayenne next time, but it was so flavorful! Sprinkling raisens into the veg mix is also a nice touch.

Fresh Green Beans, Fennel, and Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
So easy to prepare, and it tasted as good as it looked. Great way to get your veggies! (I subbed Pam for the olive oil to cut down fat and used dried basil instead of fresh and it was still a total hit.) Will definitely make this again!

Spicy Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Looked stunning, and tasted like it came from a restaurant kitchen. I subbed regular mustard for the dry mustard (check the conversion rate online -- it's not 1:1), but followed everything else to a T. Absolutely a company-worthy dish.

Mango-licious Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
This got rave reviews - everyone loved it! The presentation and wonderful color make this a winner. I omited the jalepeno in the salsa and think that was ok -- the ginger gives it enough depth of flavor. I followed an earlier suggestion to add the salt to the salsa bit by bit, as 1tsp likely really is too much. Subbed Pam for the oil to cut down on the fat. Used dried orange zest instead of fresh, which I think made it more bitter and which I wouldn't suggest others do.

Crispy Chipotle Lime Tilapia with Cool Avocado Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Unlike other reviewers, I actually wanted this sauce to taste *more* like avocado! I thought it was fairly generic -- smooth and nice, but didn't taste like much. I'd like to make this again and heighten the avo taste of the sauce, as well as skip the tortilla crust on the fish and just put on more salsa.

Summer Nights Eggplants

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Following another reviewer's suggestion, I simmered the veg mix in water to cut down on the oil, and then used a slotted spoon to transfer the veg into the bread crumb bowl. I only used 1.5c bread crumbs and thought it worked great -- wouldn't suggest going over 2c. Unfortunately, the eggplant shells didn't cook through in the 20 min they spent in the oven, so my guests ended up picking out the filling and eating it w/o the shell. The recipe definitely has potential, so next time I'll try baking the shells, and then stuffing them and baking them further.

Raspberry Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Awesome! The sour cream turns into a custard-like texture which is really great. My pie was quite tart, but I bet that varies depending on your raspberry batch. I used pre-sliced almonds instead of walnuts and they came out great -- really added to the taste. I accidentally baked the filling and topping all at the same time, but it came out looking beautiful -- everyone thought the pie was store-bought! Without altering filling or topping quantities, this yielded one overflowing, delicious, gone-in-five-seconds pie.
