Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
These were easy and very good. You don't need to use very much oil when cooking; I just lightly brushed my pan with less than a tablespoon of canola and could have left that off since my pan doesn't stick. My husband hates onions. If you are in the same boat just cook a some onion slices in the pan after the burgers are done and serve to those who do like onion. I didn't have mayo so instead I mixed 0% greek yogurt with some lime juice, onion powder, and lemon-pepper and that was a nice compliment to the salmon burgers. It also works well to use old bay seasoning instead of or in addition to the basil. I served these on drop biscuits which were cut in half and added a slice of tomato, chopped fresh onion, and the above mentioned grilled onion and yogurt spread.

Broccoli-Stuffed Sole

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I thought this was very good. The only major change I made was leaving out the rice since I didn't have time to cook some. I also used lemon pepper seasoning instead of plain salt. I may have ended up using extra cheese (regular mild cheddar) too but am not sure since I cut the recipe down to 3 filets and didn't measure. I had some hush puppy mix so I made that and some corn seasoned with old bay and pepper as a side dish. But since this is such a heavy dish compared to what I'm use to; (esp if I had used rice) I'll not use the hush puppies next time (only had them the mix left over from a party anyway). Reduced fat cheese doesn't melt very well from my past experience; so I'd suggest just using less of a sharp cheddar if you are trying to keep calories low; an easy place to cut out calories is the butter...cut the amount in half and skip the option to top the filets with butter; you will have plenty of liquid for basting later on in the cooking process.

Mixed Seafood Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I made this as written and it was okay. The flavor doesn't really stick to the seafood. This is a good base for a curry dish but needs some tweaks.

Vegetable and Tofu Stir-fry

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
The sauce poured on just before serving really makes the dish. I will be memorizing it so I can make stir fry as a quick go-to healthy meal. This was my first time to stir fry in a good wok and it turned out great. I used different vegetables with the tofu and threw in some seafood at the end (hubby think meat must be in every meal...sigh). I also forgot the ginger that I had bought specifically for this...oops. Case in point, as long as you get the sauce right you pretty much throw anything in your wok and it will come out great if you use the sauce from this recipe.

Vegan Hot and Sour Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
I couldn't find dried mushrooms (of any kind), lily buds, chili oil, or bamboo fungus at our local grocery store. So I substituted baby bella mushrooms and had to just leave out the rest since I don't even know what they are similar to. Despite not being able to find a good portion of the ingredients this turned out very well. My husband (who I was looking at this for) really loved it and wanted me to make it more often. Next time I make it I will use low sodium soy sauce and if that works I'll try to cut back on it the following time too...the sodium content in this soup (and every hot and sour soup recipe I've looked at so far) is too high for everyday consumption. I noticed that the non-vegan recipes for this soup include pork...the Chinese restaurants I've been to do not include pork in their hot and sour soup (at least not as far as I can tell). So I was very glad to find a vegan alternative to the norm that is more like what we are use to.

Suzanne's Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
It was pretty good for a healthy quiche but not very good for someone wanting a really yummy quiche. I think I will make it again using this recipe as a base mixing everything together and possibly using crab meat instead of mushrooms. I think it could be made without the crust to save on calories and fat.

Crab Quiche Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Didn't have half and half so I used Greek Yogurt instead, also had to double cheddar because I didn't have swiss...turned out great. Btw, you either want to use fresh real crab or refrigerated imitation crabmeat....canned crab just doesn't work well for this.

Yellow Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
Cooking these in a pan leaves everything submerged in a very large amount of bacon grease...and I used center cut which has less fat. This was good enough that I might make it again (wrapping the bacon around chicken tenders and placing in a skillet in a skillet) but bacon tends to make everything taste good...I'm not really sure if I could taste the spices. UPDATE: I made it again. This time I upped the mustart to 2 tablespoons and added dry parsley and 1 teaspoon liquid smoke (hickory) to the glaze. Then I baked it on a rack to allow the fat to drain. Much better; yet the recipe as is still is only a 2 star at best.

Yogurt Mint Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
If how I made this was the intended result then it's really a 1 or a 2 but since I used fat free milk and left out the salt and used a tiny bit of liquit mint instead of dry since I can't find dry mint here. So, I'm going with a 3 since I probably just substituted too much and if I can find dried mint I'll give it another try using buttermilk. Update: This soup cannot be saved for later, leftovers in the fridge in sealed containers separated and smelled heavily of flour. Changing review to 1.

Turkey-Lentil Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
This was surprisingly good. My husband says he doesn't like the lintels much. Since lintels don't have much flavor I assume that means he doesn't like their texture so I might try blending them next time or perhaps purposely overcooking them so they are extra soft. He also doesn't like tomatoes so I used baby tomatoes so I could easily keep them off his plate. I left off the yogurt and parsley, it didn't need it and I think it might detract from the flavor.

Spinach with Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This would be good to make as a simple yet impressive looking side dish. I was surprised that the apples ang garlic went so well together. I toasted the pine nuts to bring out the flavor, I think that helped a lot. Pine nuts aren't my favorite, so I might experiment with other nuts next time...perhaps toasted almonds.

Hawaiian Hot Dog Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
I gave it 4 stars because it tastes pretty good and is a good budget friendly pot luck option. For those who had problems with it being too sugary, try using regular pork and beans rather than "baked beans". I left out the white sugar due to comments about it being too sweet but think I could easily add it in without a problem; other than the pineapples themselves this didn't turn out sweet for me at all. If the liquid was more like a sauce and less watery this would be a 5. I have it sitting on low now so maybe some of that liquid will evaporate off.
