Summer Salad with Cumin-Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
This is fantastic! Nice blend of flavors. Thanks to reviewers for tips to cut down the oil. Also agree that some cayenne on the salmon would be a nice touch. This will be in the regular rotation, even though it is a bit of a pricier meal.

Lemonade-Mint Iced Tea

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I can't imagine making this as per the recipe. I used real brewed tea to avoid the sugar in instant iced tea powder. I used frozen lemonade as per recipe, which is also quite sweet. Added the juice of half a lemon (would have put a whole but that is all I had). I added zero sugar to this recipe and am very pleased with how it turned out - we prefer refreshing drinks in our household rather than sweet. I would suggest to start with very little sweetener and add to your taste. Great idea though, my new favorite summer drink!

Yummy Pesto Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Followed the suggestions of others and doubled the amount of pesto. Nice and easy way to add some flavor to mashed potatoes.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Currently my favorite muffin recipe! Moist and delicious. I used half whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and a small container of apple sauce with a bit of oil to top it up to 1/2 cup.

Throw Together Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
My guests and I loved this recipe! I used medium salsa and hot taco sauce and it had the perfect kick (and I don't like my food overly spicy). I added tex mex cheese blend on top for the last bit of cooking and served with sour cream as suggested. Also substituted whole wheat egg noodles and black beans instead of kidney beans. Next time I will add red or green pepper as well.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
A nice blend of spices and just the right amount of kick. I wasn't sure how well the sauce would work as a baste, but it turned out great!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
I left the jalapenos out, fearing that it would be too spicy for me with them, but I will put them in next time! Nice blend of flavors.

Radish Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Mine turned out extremely runny. I used light cream cheese and was sure to dry the radishes (which were from the farmer's market and might contain more moisture than store-bought?).

Lime-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Good recipe, brings out the taste of the fish nicely. Needs a little longer to marinade.

Grilled Chicken and Artichoke Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I liked the flavours and consistency of the soup but would consider adding only one can of artichoke hearts next time and maybe a potato or two instead of the second can. I found the soup too salty as well, even though I used reduced-sodium chicken broth. I would consider making my own broth next time, but the recipe already requires a lot of prep time.

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This recipe is decent as is, but this time around I made some changes. I found the original quite sweet, so I cut back on the honey and added an extra tbsp each of balsamic and soy sauce. Also added a clove of garlic and some ground ginger (didn't have fresh), then marinated overnight. I didn't have time to bake it, so I sliced it into coins and pan-fried, first to brown and then added the marinade and simmered for a bit to reduce the sauce. Served over quinoa with red pepper and brocolli.

Hearty Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I enjoy a thick soup and found this nice and hearty. I added an extra carrot and parsnip since I really like veggies, and an extra cup of water to account so it didn't thicken too much.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
This is delicious, a perfect blend of flavors and very healthy! I added cinnamon and ground ginger (didn't have fresh) as other reviewers mentioned. Next time I will add an extra chicken breast, the recipe is fine as-is, but I try to take in a lot of protein. I would also consider making the vegetarian version but would add 2 cans of chickpeas instead of one to maintain the consistency. Goes well over whole wheat couscous cooked with chicken broth.

Easy Chili I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
An excellent base recipe. I left out the jalapenos and found it still had enough kick. Next time I will add a 1/2 cup red pepper as well.
