Summer Vegetable Ratatouille

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This was awesome. The only changes I made were to saute the batches of veggies in Pam (organic olive oil spray) and balsamic vinegar. The balsamic makes it in my opinion. I omitted the eggplant and added shitake mushrooms. Great veggie blend. Thanks for the idea.

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
great taste but not enough protein to count as a meal. I added a scoup of organic whey protein powder. i also made sure all fruit was frozen....this makes it more like a milkshake.

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
While this wasn't the best bread I've ever had it was quite tasty. I had organic apples that I didn't want to go to waste so I actually used and extra apple. This bread is really easy to make. I sustituted 1 1/2 c of whole wheat flour for half of the flour, unsweetened applesauce for the oil and 1 c of brown sugar for 1 of the cups of white. I also added 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ginger and some pumpkin pie spice. I also doubled the vanilla. I had no problems with the dough being too thick but a splash of OJ will solve the problem. Great recipe. Will keep making as the taste testers loved it.

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Shiso Ginger Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This was awesome with Tuna. I got some bluefin tuna right off the boat and knew it was meant to be seared. If you make this with tuna just coat with the sesame seeds and pan sear each side for 45 secs. There is no need to bake tuna. I made the following modifications for a smoewhat healthier/not so rich sauce and accented taste: Leeks for shallots/ Real grated organic giner root/ Low fat milk for heavy cream (with the butter you really don't need the cream)/Cut the butter portion by 1/4 and used Smart Balance spread for the remaining amount/ 1 extra tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce/ Cilantro instead of Shiso/ Organic Olive Oil cooking spray/2 tsp real wasabi paste. I served it with some miso-leek-nori soup and seaweed salad. AMAZING!!!!

This was a great way to do asparagus with the following modifications: 2tbsps of EVOO with 1 tbsp of both balsamic and red wine vinegars. I also omitted the bread (better to fill up on extra veggies). Thnaks for the recipie.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I made this quiche for company as a labor day "brunch" item. It was a huge hit. It proves you do not need crust. I took some tips from others and cut the cheese to 2 cups using 1 1/4c organic shredded cheddar and 3/4c ff cottage cheese. The cottage cheese gives a more creamy texture. To cut some more calories I used 3 egg beaters and 2 organic eggs. I sauteed the leeks ( little zestier than onions), fresh organic spinach and arugala chopped, and shitake mushroms in Organic Pam with some chopped garlic. Seasoning the mixture with red pepper flakes, ground lemon pepper and garlic powder puts in the final touch. I suggest serving it with a freshly baked breakfast bread ( I baked apple/cinnamon) and a fresh fruit salad. This will wow your guests.

Jean's Super Salad with Ginger-Citrus Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This salad tastes good but I ended up leaving many of the ingredients out or lessening portions because of the calorie count per serving.
