Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I found this as I was looking for recipes to use up a mix of fruit recieved in our CSA box and decided to try it since it seemed amenable to whatever fruits are on-hand. I used fresh strawberries, kiwi, tangerines and bananas. I was delicious! Four of us devoured it in a single sitting. I used a flat stone to bake the cookie crust and it overflowed. Next time, I would use half the package or use a pan with a bit of depth. There was plenty of the glaze and the cream mixture left over for a second pizza. This time we'll use tangerines and papaya for a tropical twist. Can't wait!

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
This was GREAT! I used black olives, pomegranate balsamic, dried herbs, chile sauce instead of cayenne, and vegan cream cheese. The cream cheese was in a tub, so I decided to mix it with the olive mixture, but I DO NOT recommend doing that, as it looks like vomit.

Dill and Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Delicious! I agree with others that the lime/lemon called for is way too much; I did 1tsp lemon, 1/2 tsp lime and it was good. Next time I might increase to 2 and 1 tsp respectively. Also, I used 1lb bay shrimp and 1lb imitation crab and served them in pitas as a side for 4th of July BBQ.

Easy Lima Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I usually don't cook limas at home because I know they will never be as good as those I used to get at the restaurant I worked at in high school, but this recipe comes close. First time I made it, I was too impatient and didn't let them simmer long enough. Though a little hard for my taste, they were still outstanding. When I let them cook the full time, they were to die for!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
A sweet dish scrumptiously highlighted with hints of vanilla, this was a new addition to this year's Thanksgiving spread. We used yams instead of sweet potatoes; it had a great creamy texture and wonderful flavor.

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
A new favorite at my family's dinner table, this recipe proves that bacon does make everything better. Don't change a thing -- it's perfect as is.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Served this with Thanksgiving dinner this year; it was a tasty compliment to the turkey-day staples. As is essential of any Thanksgiving recipe, it holds up well as leftovers--the garlic has a chance to really do it's magic by day two. Next time, I will thicken the sauce; it turned out pretty watery.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Wonderful! Complex flavor from a simple recipe; I especially liked how the bacon aquired a candied chewiness during cooking. I added almonds for a little extra crunch. Bacon slices can easily be cut into thirds rather than halved. Cooked 20 min, turned and cooked add'l 15; they came out perfect!
