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.

Greek-Style Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
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.

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.

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.

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.

Classic She Crab Soup

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
My husband doesn't care for bread crumb topping so I eliminated this. I substituted the fresh spinach for the frozen, wilted it first in evoo and garlic. I also added shrimp, but it really didn't need it. Wonderful scallop recipe for people who don't normally eat scallops.
