Healthier Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I make it this way all the time. I do sometimes add a little Splenda and maybe some brown sugar depending on the sweetness of the fruit. I have also melted Ghiardelli dark chocolate chips and drizzled the chips lightly for a special treat. Also I added my chocolate mint from the garden chopped finely. Any mint or even Basil would add some nice flavor to it.

Grilled Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I thought this was quite good, I think perhaps the reviewers who didn't enjoy it as much may have used wet scallops rather than dry. We do not have ready access to dry scallops so when we find them I buy them. Wet scallops are treated with a preservative that can give a chemical aftertaste, I have read articles that say you can mask it in various ways but all are unsatisfactory. Ask your market if they are wet or dry, they should know!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
I made this for just me, hubbie and son are on a fishing trip! I didn't have quinoa but I had exactly 3/4 cup of Jasmatti rice. I didn't have cayenne (don't know why) but I had Penzys' chipotle seasoning I had recently purchased to try. I threw in my last few fresh asparagus spears to steam at the end and had it with a Boca burger. Wonderful flavors, definitely a do over!

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Made this for the first time today, used a 13 dry bean mix from Bob's Mills. Soaked the beans all night then mixed it up and cooked them in the crock pot all day. Had to add some extra beef stock because the dry beans really continue to soak up the juice. Also didn't have enough catsup so used up my chili sauce from the shrimp sauce I made the other day. Yum!

Mexican Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This is very similar to a cold Mexican Pasta Salad I have made from a Moosewood Cookbook. So this would taste great cold as well as hot and the veggies would not need to be cooked! The only thing we did with the corn was (because it was frozen) dropped it in boiling water for about a minute. Made this tonight, the kids loved it!
