Marinated Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
This was a wonderful recipe for summer! I always have to cook my onions though so I put them in the pot along with the carrots for the 5 min. The recipe also calls for diced green bell pepper. I chopped up the pepper very fine. I like it better this way. My mom called this recipe copper pennies.

Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Changed to 2 bone-in chicken breasts, and 1 can drained diced tomatoes, since I didn't have any sun-dried on hand. This was really good.

The flavors were really good. You have to have the fresh basil. That really made it! This is an easy and unique dish.

Spinach Garlic Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
It turned out very good after I doubled the spinach, added a potato, exchanged the butter for EVOO and put a 1/4 C cilantro in blender before pureeing. I also used very little milk, mainly the broth that had chicken bouillon used to boil the spinach, carrots and potato. I think the cilantro calmed the garlic down. It was excellent!

Marinated Wild Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Fabulous! I changed the vinegar to plain balsemic as someone had suggested and also changed the red pepper flakes to cayenne pepper. I took out all onion. This is a really wonderful recipe to plank grill.

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I used less than half of the recommended butter and it was delicious! I will be making this again and again.

I thought these were very good. I didn't have any coconut, so I just made a glaze with powdered sugar, organge juice and vanilla.

Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I halved this recipe for just two. I boiled the beans in chicken bouillon. Be sure not to overcook the beans since you are going to cook them a little in the frying pan. I put 2 T. EVOO in the frying pan along with 2 cloves of minced garlic. I cooked the garlic for a little while and then added the drained beans. I poured a couple of teaspoons of rice vinegar on it along with the sea salt and pepper. I also squeezed a couple of lemon wedges over the bean/garlic mixture. Then after mixing all well I topped with the feta and let sit for about 5 min. until the feta warmed up some. I think next time I'll use a little lemon zest too. This was wonderfu.

Lemon-Pepper Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Added 1/2 cup of oil packed sun-dried tomatoes. This was amazing. I skipped the couscous for mashed potatoes, but it probably would have been better with a rice pilaf.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Awesome! I made mini loaves out of this baked at 350 for 30 min. I doubled the topping for it, but I probably shouldn't have. It would have been fine with the original amount of topping. I also used buttermilk instead of regular milk.

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

I've made this twice and can eat the whole bowl all by myself. It's really fresh tasting even though it uses 2 canned items.

Quick Poached Salmon with Dill Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
The salmon is really good and you can substitute a plain 'ole chopped onion. My husband and I neither one cared much for the sauce.

Roasted Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Wonderful and easy potato salad. I got rave reviews from my toughest critics. The only thing I did differently was to roast minced garlic, about 4 cloves, with the potatoes. The garlic added a ton of flavor. I also can't eat raw onions, so I left those out. They weren't missed.
