Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
This recipe makes me wish that I had never given five stars to another recipe. It is so perfect as is that it makes me want to use expletives. I cannot believe I just said that about Brussels sprouts.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
This was very tasty. I wanted do fit some veggies in so I added spinach. I also like my curries with yogurt so I added a couple big spoonfuls of that. I also think that it should have more curry paste, garlic, ginger and a touch more sugar than the recipe calls for.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
I am always looking for new and creative quinoa and couscous recipes to try and this was a great inspiration, which is why I am giving it five stars despite the fact that I didn't necessarily follow the recipe. I used less olive oil, more spinach, no lemon juice(which I would have liked to use if I had it on hand), plain goat cheese and pine nuts. It was really delicious. The toasted pine nuts flavored the whole dish with a unique and tasty nutty flavor. I am looking forward to trying the original recipe and some more variations.

Spicy Southwest Chopped Salad with Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
This is delicious and I could tell just by looking at it that it's a nutritionist's dream. For my comments/suggestions: I used Queso Fresco instead of Cotija because it's much cheaper (less than half the cost). Also, I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper and chile powder and I was quite happy with that in place of the cajun seasoning. I had one serving without avocado and I would say that is a must for the recipe. And lastly, I would actually suggest skipping the lettuce.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I don't know how I neglected to review this for so long, as I've made it so many times. It is wonderful! Better than any restaurant version I have had. One small tip, take the stems off of the shiitakes if you want all the mushrooms to have a nice even texture. The stems are a little tough and don't absorb as much flavor.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
This recipe is to die for. I add a stock cube, white pepper, oregano and bay leaf to the pot when I cook up the veggies, then reserve the liquid and use it as my chicken stock for the sauce. I honestly have not had any of the same issues with dryness that other reviewers have had. One more thing--please, please do not leave out the celery seed. I think it just might be the secret ingredient.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Man, is this tasty! I made it just as the recipe stated, with the exception of adding chocolate chips. I am also very happy that I decided to spring for the higher quality chocolate when I was making this (that could be a reason that some other people's was not chocolate-y enough). It turned out incredible--creamy and rich and incredible!!!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I really enjoyed this. It is light and simple, but still filling. As far as specific tips and/or ingredients go, I am not sure because I had to stay at work late and my boyfriend made it...maybe that added to the taste? :)

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This soup is fantastic. I have craved it ever since the last time I made it about a month ago and plan to make it again this evening. I followed other reviewers suggestions to roast the squash first as well as to add apple and nutmeg while cutting the amount of cream cheese down to half a package. I also added ground ginger. Even though I made several changes, I am rating this at five stars because I think the addition of cream cheese is absolutely brilliant.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I think this recipe was great as a jumping off point. Like so many other people I only used half the butter called for and replaced the heavy cream with half-and-half and I don't think the soup suffered any for it. I also added garlic, which is standard for me. I think that the best addition was a heavy dose of white pepper and red chili flakes to contrast with the creamy taste and texture. The next time I make it I think I will add another leek or two as well.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
I love these to bits. They are always a big hit. But I have to strongly recommend trying a bit of a variation--stuff them with shrimp and monterrey jack.

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I made this using the "Pesto" recipes from this site and I am very, very pleased. But I adore pesto, so I may be an easy sell. Nonetheless, very tasty.

Garlic Dill New Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This recipe is very straight forward and delicious. I've never steamed potatoes before and was very impressed with quality and quickness of the result. I also have to note that my boyfriend thought that they were the best potatoes he's ever had...and he's Irish for heaven's sake. (FYI-They aren't kidding when they say the Irish LOVE potatoes.)

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
WOW! I made this for a barbeque two days ago and its already known as the "infamous sangria." I can see this getting made for years to come. I left out the sugar and used all the juice from the jar of maraschino cherries. Be warned: this will sneak up on you!

Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
These were a big hit at our Easter dinner. I used smoked cheddar to add an extra little something. I will be making these again.

Pan Fried Catfish Filets

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I really enjoyed this, although I personally found it tricky to cook the catfish all the way through without burning the cornmeal. I also added lemon pepper garlic powder in the cornmeal mixture in place of frying real garlic.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This is a definite favorite of mine that my mom has made since I was a child. However, I can't say that it's perfect without ginger ale. The lemon-lime soda just makes the punch too sweet, but the ginger ale will give it a little sass--in a good way.

Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
I really enjoyed this recipe and so did my Irish boyfriend. It's just different enough from traditional bacon and cabbage that he didn't have to compare it to his mother's, but still gave him a nice taste of home. I totally faked the Irish bacon by letting pork chops soak in salt water(if you look online there are extensive instructions on making Irish Bacon)and it actually kinda worked. I also added onion at the beginning. Overall, a very tasty soup.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
If you use this recipe make sure to buy fine ground cornmeal. I accidentally bought course ground and it was like chewing on un-popped corn kernels. Also, the cornmeal would not stick on its own. I would suggest using an egg/milk mixture to make a nice coating
