Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
My first try with a stuffed pepper recipe and it was delicious. I may add more of the seasonings next time though since the pepper itself is not flavored. I used ground turkey instead of beef and added cheese on top of the peppers during the last 15 minutes of cooking. My fiancee really liked this dish and it's pretty healthy when pairing it with a side salad.

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
This recipe was perfect for a potluck I was bringing fruit salad to. Arranging the fruits on skewers was fun and different and everyone loved it. I would stick to fruits that don't brown so quickly such as grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple and blueberries. There are a variety of fruits you can pick! If you're using the outer shell of any melon you have for display make sure skewers are shorter so they're easier to insert and do not make the melon shell top heavy.

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Great recipe overall. Although when the recipe states to simmer for 10 minutes the owner must have magical Quinoa since it takes just as long as rice (if not longer) to fully cook which took me about 25 minutes total. I am definitely cooking this again and will add things in such as celery, maybe squash as well to give it more flavor and texture.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Overall the recipe is great, however there rosemary and thyme almost overpowered the freshness of my veggies. My fiancee and I definitely liked it, but both agreed the next time we have this we will cut the seasonings in half. The great thing about this recipe is you can pretty much use any veggies you like and it will taste great!

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
Really great and simple recipe! I followed another reviewer's suggestions to change it up a little bit. I used an entire package of bacon (about 1 lb) and removed as much fat as possible while chopping it up. Add in a small onion or half an onion to accompany the garlic. When adding the diced tomatoes to the batch I also added the spinach to cook it more than just a slight wilt underneath the cooked pasta. The other reviewer added in dried basil, it really made a difference! Once everything was mixed I topped it off with parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper. Next time I make this I'm adding another bunch of spinach for sure, that's how much I love spinach. There are definitely a ton of different ways to make this a bit different and still very tasty.

Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
This was a great recipe and my first time making au gratin potatoes from scratch. The only difference is I used real potatoes and baked at 400 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. My fiancee really enjoyed the green pepper addition. Definitely a great potato side dish that I will be making for a long time. Whether you're using hashbrowns or real potatoes make sure to mix them with the other ingredients, don't just pour over it otherwise it won't come out right. I also added salt and pepper for a bit of seasoning.
