Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
new favorite recipe! here are the changes I make. Most of them are just based on preference. I use 3/4 c whole wheat flour and 3/4 c. gluten free flour mix. I use wheat bran rather than oat bran. Soy milk in place of the skim milk and coconut oil rather than vegetable oil. I only use 1 c. of carrot and one apple. Then I add 1 or 2 mashed ripe bananas. Then I prefer to use chopped pecans rather than mixed nuts.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
simple. That's how coleslaw should be. The ONLY change I make is adding a little sprinkle of celery salt. this recipe is a keeper. My fav way of eating it is on top of a BBQ beef or pulled pork sandwich!

Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
This sandwich is awesome! To ensure the round steak is tender, do the following: pound it out (if you don't have a meat mallet, you can stab it to death with a fork then pound it out with the back of a large heavy metal spoon), slice it as thinly as possible...paper thin!, or consider marinating it in the worchestershire for a while. The mayo sauce is awesome too.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
wow. The reviews for this recipe are spot on. It's even better than it sounds. I did a few things differently by roasting the pear and onion as well...but the concept remained the same. I steamed the butternut for about 10 minutes (cut it in half, scoop out seeds and put it cut side down in a baking dish with 1/4 inch of water). Then pour off the water, peel and cut the squash into 1 inch cubes, add the pears (peeled, cored and quartered) and the onion (chopped) to the baking sheet. Toss with a bit of evoo. Bake about 35-40 minutes or until beginning to caramelize. Continue with the recipe as directed. It's amazing.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
The potatoes were great. The chicken was yummy. and prep and clean up were easy! We'll make this again...just be careful not to overcook. My boneless chicken thighs didn't need an hour. About 40 minutes was plenty for both the thighs and potatoes.

Miso Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I used white miso. Also added a generous amount of sliced mushrooms and doubled the green onions. I used firm tofu and prefer it diced very small to avoid a 'texture issue' for my husband. Great recipe!

Awesome Red Pepper Hummus Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
this is way too acidic. Just a teaspoon of lemon juice is plenty. i'd add water or evoo if you need more liquid to get the desired consistency.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
this was great as it is written. though next time i'll experiment with some changes such as using applesauce rather then oil or exchanging wheat flour for all purpose.

Honey Coconut Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
this makes twice as much marinade as you need. Cut it in half and it's tasty! I'd recommend adding some salt and pepper or maybe some soy to make the flavors sing. Try it served with Coconut Jasmine rice and broccoli.

Almond-Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
this almond/cheese crust turned out even better than I expected it to. Use the strongest cheese you can find as it gives it some ummph. I improvised with the seasoning to suit our tastes...

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I took off a star because the recipe needs just a little flair - some salt, pepper, and maybe an herb or two. Parsley at least. Then the cooking time was off for me...half hour at 425 would have burnt them. The evoo cooking off the chicken started to burn and smoke after about 15 minutes so I turned the oven down to 325 to finish. They were done even with the decrease in temp at about 20 min.

Rich and Creamy Roasted Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
It was ok...but something just wasn't right. I love the sweetness of the roasted eggplant and garlic though. The texture isn't completely smooth even after pureeing because of the eggplant seeds. I was really quite a bit better the next day. The day I made it I was thinking I wouldn't make the recipe again...but after having the left overs I'd possible give it another shot.

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
This was my favorite butternut squash soup yet! The Asian flair was awesome. I'm not sure it's appropriately named, though. I didn't really have a kick and I doubled the amount of jalepeno in it. You'd probably have to add some cayenne if you want it spicy. But I like it how it was, more mild. I cut back on the ginger just a touch and it was a good amount. Then I used cream rather than the evaporated milk and simmered about 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves in the soup because I didn't have fresh. Garnished with sour cream and cilantro leaves (cilantro is nice with thai flavors).

Eggplant Parmesan I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
I cut the eggplant very thinly (about 1/4 in) then "browned" them in a non-stick skillet of medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side (they don't necessarily brown though...just soften). Then I sauteed two summer squashes with one onion until soft, but not mushy. I added three cloves minced garlic toward the end. Then I layered sauce, eggplant, cheese mixture, squash and onion, sauce... Then topped with lots of mozzarella and parm cheese. It was a hit! My two year old and husband even really enjoyed this 'no pasta lasagna'.

Asian Coleslaw with Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I'm actually only reviewing this recipe for the candied walnut portion. The salad looks amazing though and I'm sure to try it in the future. But, I was specifically looking for a recipe for candied walnuts and this one was great. The only thing I changed was sprinkling some salt on them as they cooled. I like "salted caramel".

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
This was DIVINE!! Chocolate desserts seems to always be the fav in our family...but this is one of the first I've brought to a family gathering than went faster than the brownies! PLEASE don't skip the part where you coat the pan in sugar (i skipped the butter and just went for some PAM spray though). The sugar crystallizes onto the cake as it bakes making it unbelievably good! Also...be sure to let your butter (use butter not margarine please!) and your eggs come to room temp before getting started. Top with fresh peach slices and homemade whip cream. It's heaven on your fork.

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
This recipe is great. I was very impressed with how good the chicken was. I was skeptical of the marinade but it was perfect. The sauce needs to be finished "to taste". Mine needed more red pepper (I used a 'saracha' red chili sauce), soy sauce, and lime juice. I also ran mine through a processor to make it smooth. We had it for "picky" company and they like it. Served with steamed broccoli and lightly curried rice.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
this was yummy. I used andouille chicken sausage and regular diced tomatoes and pepper flakes to taste rather than fresh chilies.
