Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
The recipe was good but I'd prefer lasagna or chunky spaghetti instead!

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Yum! I omitted the macaroni but the stew is fantastic. If you don't have Italian-flavored diced tomatoes, add 1 tbs of Italian seasoning instead.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
Yum! So many people have asked me for this recipe. I made several changes like previous reviewers: additional egg white, vanilla, and a tad more cinnamon. I just add the pecans/sugar mixture to the egg white mixture and gently toss until pecans are thoroughly coated. Works just as well as the ziploc method.

Nacho Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
The recipe was great but I felt it needed more oomph from the chilies. I'd suggest adding pickled jalepenos or just more hot green chilies (mild barely added any flavor). Layering the dip made for a pretty presentation but the melted cheese created a waxy look to the dip. I made this a second time and just mixed all the ingredients before putting it in the oven. Much better!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
I love how fluffy and substantial these pancakes are! Be sure to add 1 tbs vanilla for extra flavor. The one con was that the baking powder flavor seemed a bit too strong, I'm going to try increasing the amount of sugar to 2 tbs next time. Anyone else thought the baking powder flavor was a tad on the strong side?

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
I found these to be a bit bland even adding the vanilla and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. These cook up beautifully but like the previous comment, be sure to let the batter sit only mix the matter until combined! I'm still a fan of the "Old fashioned pancakes" found on this site.

Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I loved this recipe...I consumed it in one sitting (by myself!) I used the lower fat ingredients for the milk and mayo and it still had plenty of flavor. I increased the curry to 1.25 tbs for more flavor.

Taiwanese Fried Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
This reminds me of what my mom used to make me when I was younger (only better, sorry mom!) Reduce the soy sauce a tad just to cut down on the saltiness. You can also use firm tofu..just be sure to drain it ahead of time.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Wow - simply fantastic! Marinate overnight for a stronger flavor. This works beautifully in the broiler as well as the grill.

Grilled Eggplant, Tomato and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
I really wasn't impressed by the recipe. I salted the eggplants first and assembled the sandwiches after the eggplant was grilled. I used the Foreman grill and found the sandwiches to be too soft and mushy. Perhaps using a real grill solves that problem?

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Yum! A few suggestions: salt/drain the zucchini first. To avoid the raw zucchini/onion taste, saute the squeezed zucchini and onion for a few minutes before forming cakes.

Easy Horseradish Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Yum! I paired my crab cakes with this dressing. I'd suggest putting 1/8 cup horseradish first and gradually adding a little more until you find the perfect mix. This way you're not overwhelmed by too much horseradish!

Salmon Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
This recipe is awesome for any leftover salmon you may have. I love how the yogurt cuts down on the mayo flavor (and the calories!) I added minced green onions into mine.

Scallop Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
The dish wasn't bad but it was very light - I was expecting something with more flavor because of the curry.

Bissara

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Tastes like split pea soup with an extra kick! I sauted chopped onions, garlic, and the spices prior to adding the water and peas.

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
The flavor is very light and subtle. I suggest sauteing the curry and ginger with the garlic to bring out the flavor more - then adding the vegetables.

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Fantastic mix of flavors! I used red curry paste instead of red chile paste. Double the sauce recipe and the chile part for more oomph! I added onions and broccoli as well.
