Delicious - love it. I made and was able to use it for lunch for days after it was made. Keeps very well in the fridge.

Ginataang Manok (Chicken Cooked in Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I am always looking for way to use foods like spinach and kale. This was good, you can use two great healthy foods, chicken breast and spinach, but the curry adds a lot of flavor.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I've made these several times and they are delicious. They go so fast. I am on a high protein diet so I'm always looking for dishes to cook with meat and no refined carbs (i.e. pasta, rice, bread). I did not use milk. Instead, I used eggs to moisten the mixture. Also, I try not to use dried herbs. Instead, I threw in fresh parsley, basil, and oregano from the farmer's market. These are amazing meatballs - I will use these forever.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This was amazing. Completely delicious. I also cooked some apple cured bacon and then crumbled it up and added it in to the mix. I cooked the quiche for more than an hour, though, so you may need to cook longer than specified in the recipe. But it was so tasty and was very healthy, I think. I ate it for three days after I cooked it.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This was awesome. I made it just as specified with a little less cheese and with fresh basil from the farmer's market. I also sliced up a persian cucumber to put a little more green in it. I sliced and toasted up a sourdough boule and gosh it was delicious. I'm sure it's really healthy too.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Tasty and extremely easy. I used spicy Italian sausage and managed to throw this together in about ten minutes. Very flavorful and so easy a child could make it. Thank you!

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I love the flavor of the filling but it's just a little runny. I used three cups of strawberries and three cups of fresh rhubarb. I cooked the rhubarb in about 1/4 cup of water and let it simmer and then added a half a cup of sugar. I then added the strawberries and simmered for another five minutes. I then put it in the pie crust and baked for 40 minutes. I would probably cook another five minutes if I were to do it again and also add a bit of cornstarch to thicken it. But the flavor of fresh rhubarb and strawberries is just unbelievably delicious.

Strawberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Delicious - I used five cups fresh strawberries, omitted the water entirely, decreased the cornstarch to a little over a teaspoon, and only slightly increased the quantity of flour. It fit perfectly in an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. For those who say it's too cakey, they should reduce the baking powder to 1 teaspoon. It makes it more crumbly. With these modifications, the cobbler yielded the perfect consistency. Not soupy at all. Thanks for the recipe!

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This is a nice recipe - after reading other people's comments, I reduced the thyme to one tsp. The flavor wasn't too strong. I liked it.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This is delicious. Dill and salmon are a natural combination. I covered the dish in aluminum and baked for 30 minutes. Also, instead of using garlic powder I used fresh minced garlic.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Mmmm, really delicious. I've never really done anything to baked beans before but this really added to them. I cooked the bacon and then removed it and poured out the grease. I then carmelized the onions in the same pan (just a hint of bacon grease in the skillet). Then I added the bacon, beans, ketchup and mustard. I know it seems weird to add ketchup and mustard but it tastes great. I only added about a tablespoon of brown sugar and it was plenty sweet.

Sopa De Lima (Mexican Lime Soup)

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I like the flavor of this soup alot. I sauteed the onion, garlic and chicken together before adding it to the chicken stock. I know you're thinking it's too much lime but it's not - the flavor comes out really good. Make sure you use plenty of fresh cilantro - it's essential. This soup tastes really fresh with a little bit of a kick. I will make it again.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Completely delicious. I will definitely be using this again. It is easy and results in incredible flavor. Instead of placing them in aluminum foil, I placed the fillets in an 8 x 8 baking dish and covered the baking dish with aluminum foil. Wonderful thank you for the recipe.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Outstanding! I made this with red grapes sliced in half instead of raisins and I'm sure that it improves the dish. I also used pine nuts instead of sunflower seeds which worked very well. I used low fat organic mayonnaise. Delicious, delicious, delicious.

Spicy and Sweet Spinach

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Liked this a lot. It came out great. We all should eat more high iron foods like spinach and here's an easy way to accomplish that.

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
I loved this. Tastes very authentic. Like most people I cooked it in the microwave - 7 minutes at 30% and another four minutes at full blast. Came out absolutely delicious. I will definitely make this again, especially if I'm going for an all-Mexican meal. Thanks!

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
I like that this recipe creates a different looking type of chicken dish. But I will say I cooked for 45 minutes and it came out a bit dry. So maybe only should be cooked for 30 minutes or so. Still, interesting flavors.
