Easy Waldorf and Raisin Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
This is an easy, refreshing salad, full of lots of yummy bites! I believe my mom would have loved this salad, since Waldorf salad was one of her favorites. I followed the recipe exactly, and since the recipe did not specify, I used half red delicious and half golden delicious apples. Thanks for the idea!

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I used about 1/3 c. diced red onion and less oil on this salad. Though not a true fan of oregano, I included it, but next time I will sub dill instead, and add more olives. This is a colorful, chunky salad, and I liked the combination of tomato, cucumber and feta.

Mediterranean Lamb Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I made the lamb burger patties exactly as the recipe stated, and they were delicious, moist and juicy! I didn't follow the rest exactly, due to personal preference. Since I was serving a Greek salad as a side, I opted to leave off the toppings, and serve with tzatzikiki sauce and lettuce.

Asian-American Slaw With Peanuts and Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
Followed the recipe very closely, except for using only 1/4 of an onion, I added the ginger and the jalapeno to the dressing, and I used dry roasted, unsalted peanuts (loved the crunch of the peanuts in this). This salad "grew" on me. It starts out OK, but then I found myself going back, and going back. I think next time I will leave out the salt in the dressing. I think this will make the dressing taste a tad sweeter and allow the ginger to come out more. Salt can always be added in later, if desired. Thanks for the idea!

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
We really enjoyed this main dish salad. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I put Worcestershire on the steak, instead of in the salad dressing. I first thought the dressing was a little weak without the Worcestershire, but when you get a bite of the briny olive and the steak, or a bite of the blue cheese and the steak, the dressing is just right. Really loved the combination!

Seafood Enchiladas con Queso

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
These were very good! In spite of the Anaheim and the jalapeno, there was very little heat in this recipe, and I was thankful for that, because I didn't want to lose the delicate flavor of the seafood! I used shrimp and crab meat, following the recipe exactly until the last garnish of tomato and green onion, because I was serving a salsa along with the enchiladas. Beautiful cheese sauce, but very rich! I used a 13 x 9 pan, and the recipe made 10 enchiladas for me. I took Saveur's advice and sprayed the pan with cooking spray before baking. This dish is company worthy! Thanks!

Best Ever Cilantro Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
This zippy little salsa gets quite a punch from fresh garlic! I used about half the amount specified in the recipe, and we were quite satisfied. Bright, refreshing flavors and beautiful colors make this salsa a great accompaniment to seafood or chicken. Thanks for the idea!

Easy Grilled Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
What a great idea for grilling! Slicing the zucchini this way keeps them from slipping between the grill racks. Very fast, very easy! I used Cavender's Greek Seasoning. Thanks for the idea!

Salmon with Caramelized Leeks

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
I followed the recipe for the leeks and carrots exactly, and though I enjoyed the combination, somehow it was visually unappealing on the plate. I brushed the salmon filets with olive oil, added two thin lemon slices each, sprinkled with salt and grilled on a plank. I felt the salmon needed the lemon slices. The combination of flavors was good. So often salmon recipes are sweet, and with the sweet flavor of the vegetables, sweet salmon would have been too much.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Though I enjoyed the combination of salad elements, I felt the dressing needed a little more zip. I followed the recipe exactly. Perhaps my raspberry vinegar is a little underpar, but another raspberry vinaigrette from the site was quite good.

Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Succulent and chicken breast are seldom found in the same sentence, but you can find them together here in this delightfully simple recipe, composed of a few common ingredients. Chef John really shows off the flavor of chicken and mushrooms. Yes, you may add more things, like wine, or aromatics, but the more additions, the more complications and subbing, and then the tweaking begins! I chose not to view the video beforehand, just to check out the instructions and the cooking times. I went on the low side of the recommended times, and the chicken came out perfectly, with rich, delicious mushrooms. We really enjoyed our Sunday chicken today!

Banana Split Freeze

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
For dieters, this is a great summer treat! But why not go all the way? Drizzle some sugar-free chocolate over the top and garnish with a cherry, just like a soda shop!

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
If you are looking for a different recipe for cole slaw, you have found it. This colorful salad is almost a cross between Waldorf salad and cole slaw. The dressing is sweet, so be sure to add enough lemon juice to balance to your tastes. I followed the recipe exactly, and my husband loved it. He has a sweet tooth, so it really appealed to him. For ease of combination, and for incorporating the onions, next time I will mix the dressing in the food processor and throw in the onions, so they will become part of the dressing. A pinch of salt would be nice, too.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
If you prefer a sweet, slightly-hot sauce, then this one's for you. DH and DS loved it, but I prefer a sauce that is not quite so sweet. I did use some wood chips on the grill, and I would even like more of a smoky taste, so I would like them to stay on the grill a bit longer. I don't think it would hurt them. I do give 5 stars for tenderness, though. The low and slow oven is perfectly timed for tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs. I followed the recipe very closely, subbing only cayenne for the red chile pepper.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

These are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and the cooking time was right on the money. I'm trying to do more and more with whole wheat, so I'm glad to have another good muffin recipe!

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This recipe is a fast and easy remedy for plain black beans from a can. It had a nice heat, and the fresh onions and cilantro brightened the taste. I followed the recipe exactly. I still like the long way better, but I don't always have the time! Thanks for the idea!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This was pretty good, and after tasting the marinade, I figured out that the sweet taste other reviewers mentioned was actually from the Worcestershire sauce. I was going to make this exactly as the recipe stated, but after reading reviews and tasting, I tweaked it a little. I left out the hot sauce and added 1 tsp. smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp. adobo seasoning. I squeezed half a lime over the finished dish before serving. This had a nice little heat, but I still tasted the Worcestershire. Next time, I will use less.

Cinco De Mayo Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This colorful salad is a beautiful presentation, and it is a creative and tasty combination of ingredients. Served for a dinner party, I followed the recipe exactly except for one thing. I used 1 pound of salad greens, and this made 8 generous salads. I love it when folks ask for the recipe, in my book, that makes it a winner! Thanks, Saveur!

Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
For us, the ratio of 2 bell peppers and one onion to one pound of meat is about right. I added more garlic and I used fresh ginger to flavor the oil, and I omitted the salt, because I sprinkled soy sauce over the beef before cooking. Good basic recipe that can be tweaked to personal taste.
