Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
these burritos were not that good. i followed the recipe to a "t" and they had no zip, no real taste at all. they need some spices to "get things going".

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
had to go on a vegan plus no oil diet. made this and served w/some fresh veggies and thought i had died and gone to heaven. i didn't have any jalapenos so i put a sprinkling of red pepper flakes, some salt and some pepper and about 1/3 cup of reserved bean liquid. totally delish!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
although , as another reviewer suggested,i dredged my breasts in flour, then pan seared them, then put them in the oven after i had used basil, garlic, lemon, this was a lackluster serving. the mushroom sauce was ok - i also added garlic and onions to that and used WAY more chicken broth than called for in the recipe or it would have been too thick and not really a cream sauce. as the recipe is written, i have to think this recipe would have been seriously bland. after dinner, my husband spontaneously spoke up and said that we had a nice dinner. he didn't go overboard though and he just loves to see a big ole slab o meat on that plate. trying to serve veggie several nights a wk:)

Asparagus, Chicken, and Pecan Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
this was a tasty little dish. very simple especially as i had bought fresh spaghetti. i added a few mushrooms and more garlic as always and made one and 1/2 times the actual sauce and added a few panko crumbs before adding spaghetti to thicken a bit. quick dish.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
this is a great recipe. i used a little more garlic as i do every recipe and i never use butter due to husband's cardiac restrictions, gut other than those changes, made as written and we both loved it. i did bake it about 5 mins. longer and really felt surprised that it was done by then as i didn't pound out my chicken breasts, but done it was and soooo mouth wateringly tender. if anyone could tell me something to buy to pound chicken breasts, i would love it. thank you.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
swiss chard is my most favorite food and this recipe is the best one i have used yet. it mixes the piquancy of the garlic and the tartness of the lemon w/the natural sweetness of the chard. just delicious!!!!

Spoon Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
these were just delicious. i did, like the other reviewer suggested, leave some of the batter in the refrigerator for several days and used it this a.m., adding chopped apples to it and sprinkling cinnamon atop each muffin. they turned out yummy. i have convection oven and baked them @350 for about 12 minutes and they were browned and perfect.

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
4 and 1/2 stars is what i mean - i can't do 1/2's:( this was absolutely delicious. i wanted to eat the whole entire potful by myself. i followed some others' suggestions - using only 2/3 qt. chicken broth, no sugar at all, only 6 ozs. cream cheese, adding cayenne, cumin, curry,thyme, cinnamon as well as nutmeg. the sizes of the squashs don't really matter as one reviewer suggested except in baking them - the butternut one was larger and was not really done when the acorn one was. i roasted the seeds from the squash and put a few on the top(they are very different in texture from other edible seeds). it looked so pretty in our attractive bowls that i will def. make for company. served w/a salad of greens, dried cranberries, bleu cheese crumbles, walnuts, and avocados and a crusty bread right out of the oven. hmmmmmm!!!

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
this is the best recipe ever!!!! it is simply delicious and the only thing i would change is to put the parmesan cheese on at the last 10 mins. like others said. i made this for my family at the beach and my son wanted me to make it again so he could eat the whole thing.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
this, at best, was lackluster. i could barely taste the curry. it was tender but then that's from my oven cooking, not the marinade. i won't be making it again. sorry:(

Shrimp and Asparagus Fettuccine

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
my husband said that this was great tasting and i loved it as well. i agree that the cooking times are too long and only sauteed my asparagus about 5 minutes, then added the tips and only did these about 3 minutes. as i did the tips, i added 2 inches of anchovy paste and a tsp. of chopped jalapeno peppers to give it a little zing as other reviewers had mentioned. at this time i also added a half bag of fresh spinach and let it wilt. it all was very easy and very tasty and would be something i could make at the last minute as another reviewer indicated.

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
this was just delicious and so moist. i made a little more sauce than the recipe called for so i could put a little inside the chicken. i also would not put my stove on 475 as the panko crumbs would burn early before the chicken was done. i cooked it in my convection oven at 425 for about 40 minutes. it was moist and delightful and my husband loved it. i also added more spears of asparagus than called for. oh i also would use less lemon juice as another reviewer mentioned. i only used one and 1/2 lemons juiced and it was almost too much.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
this is the best recipe ever off all recipes. it is just succulent and tasty and i used low fat feta and low fat mayonnaise as well as turkey bacon to cut down on the fat content. i have taken it as my offering dish when we go out and had people over and served it always w/rave compliments.

Green Chile Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
this was very tasty. i sauteed a few onions, some garlic, and some mushrooms to throw in plus put a few cherry tomatoes chopped up per another reviewer. i cut the 400 degree time in half and then only baked at 325 degrees for 25 mins. actually it could have come out of the oven a few mins. earlier. have to be careful of that. my husband has cardiac issues and we have to watch our diet so i used egg beaters and olive oil in lieu of the melted butter. delicious.

Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
this was fairly easy and quick and a nice way to use up the pork loin i had but it lacked some pazazz and i even added 3 cloves of minced garlic in the beginning saute part. it also seemed a bit on the dry side.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
this was deeeeelicious on a chilly fall night when the phillies should have beat the yanks. added one more can of pumpkin puree and only pureed one can of the black beans. added some cumin and some parsley and only used one T. of apple vinegar and 2 T. of sherry. i let it simmer about 2 hrs. i served it w/the allrecipes basic corn muffins and a light salad. the lady to whom i served it is known for her cooking. the next day she called me for both recipes!!!! her husband and my husband both raved about the meal. i meant for the starts above to be 4 and 1/2.
