Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Scaled this down: mix together 1/2 a med watermelon, 1/4 onion finely chopped, 1/2 cucumber, 1/4 c cashews chopped in half, black pepper, and feta then pour over 1/4 cup olive oil and a couple tbs fresh lemon juice. Let sit in the fridge to let flavors blend for 30 min. Wait to add salt just before serving since water from the melon will release. Add cilantro or mint... Or neither :) yum. Def the best watermelon salad recipe I've tried.... And I've tried a bunch.

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Followed other reviews and toasted pine nuts at 300f in oven for 10 minutes and then crushed/grinded them using the back of a spoon. Added them in at the very end (do not blend these in the machine ... found out the hard way that if you do it taste like grass). Left out brazil nuts (didn't have any) and will add cheese when I serve this since I'll be freezing the batch I made. Also added juice of half lemon for taste and to keep the color nice while frozen.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
for 2 pieces of tilapia i used 2 cloves of garlic, 2.5 tbs butter, 1 tbs lemon juice - sauteed the mixture on the stove (be sure not to burn the garlic) added cilantro (didnt have parsley on hand) and poured over fish (in a pie dish sprayed with non stick). topped with a little salt and garlic powder, and Parmesan and ritz crackers crushed (hubby didnt like the ritz - i loved it!). baked in the oven at 400 for 13 minutes.... yumm! served with red beans and rice and sauteed spinach/onion/tomato mix. UPDATE: did this today without cooking the garlic first and thought it was yummy still. didnt add the ritz either or Parmesan. just took the fish, sprinkled salt, pepper and Montreal seasoning; topped with butter lemon juice garlic cilantro mix and baked at 400F for 12-13 minutes.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Yum! i cut the recipe in 1/2 (1 pound turkey), like other reviews i used grated 1/2 onion, 1/2 carrot, grated 3/4 small block of cheese (used Monterrey jack), added 2 cloves of garlic, few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, some italian seasoning i had on hand to the turkey mix. i also let the bread crumbs soak in the milk for a few minutes before mixing in the turkey. i put everything into a glass baking dish as i didnt have a loaf pan. put in the oven for 50 min and pulled it out, drained off some of the liquid that was at the side of the glass dish (came off the loaf), covered with foil for another 10 min. was perfect. served with mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. next time will sneak zucchini in so my 2 year old gets a little more veggies. picky hubby even liked this!

super tender chicken. used 5-6 cloves of garlic, 2 (large chicken breasts), served with asparagus (parmesean garlic from this site) and home made mashed potatoes. would be nice to have an alfrado sauce for dipping on the side next time. Overall very yummy and little prep time; super fast!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
wonderful! I took the advice of the others reviews and cut the sugar in half. I mixed all the dressing ingredients with my hand blender which mixed the dressing up nicely (i was only able to let it sit in the fridge for 30 min prior to serving so i think blending the ingredients helped the flavors mix.) - I didn't have poppy seeds on hand so had to skip that. Also added fresh feta per one of the other reviews. Very nice mix of flavors and a very nice change!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
SOOO yummy! Made the following changes based on all the reviews: Veggie/chicken mixture: used two chicken breasts- seasoned with poultry seasoning (didn’t want too much chicken in it), 3/4 bag of frozen veggies (use a 16 oz bag of carrots, peas, green beans and corn), 1/2 cup celery, 1 large potato (cubed), boiled chicken and potatoes first (for 10 minutes) in water with 2 bouillon cubes, and added 1/2 tbls garlic powder, then added rest of veggies and cooked for an additional 5 minutes (since they were mainly frozen didn’t want to overcook them by putting them in with chicken and potatoes). totally don’t need to be using fresh veggies for this recipe…. For the sauce changes I made were: used 1 cup diced onion, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, added 1 tbls chili powder (we like kick!) 3 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 1/4 cups milk (basically doubled the liquid in the sauce) Used the Pillsbury pie crust brush with egg white as recommended by others and also baked the bottom crust for 5 minutes first. Mixed veggies and sauce together before putting in bottom crust. Baked in oven at 375, bake for 35-40 minutes This was soooo perfect! Never made pot pie before - OMG this tasted amazing!!!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
awesome! i followed the recipe - excpet for the following: replaced the soy sauce with Dales seasoning for meat and fish (its' soy based but as added flavor.) Also added chopped green onions (1/4 cup) and a 3/4 tsp rosemary. used fresh garlic (a must in my book!) i cooked the fish on a skillet. Turned the gas on high and let the pan heat up with a little bit of non-stick cooking spray on it. heres the best tip (got it from the man behind the fresh fish counter at Whole Foods) - turn the Tuna Steaks every 30 seconds for 3-5 minutes (depending on size of the steak)... perfectly cooked! DO NOT OVER COOK THESE. i had actually intially undercooked them (only 3 minutes). I wanted them to be cooked a little more, so i put them back in the frying pan and seared for 30 more seconds on each side. yummy!!!!!!

I used porterhouse roast beef slices from the deli. I broiled the bread as suggested in another review and added pepperjack cheese – I also added mayo to the end sandwhich.
