Polenta Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I made them as directed but then tried baking instead of frying...not very tasty. I might try it one more time to see if it was a technique issue but they needed to be jazzed up with more flavor.

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly but even with a longer time spent marinating it just wasn't all that flavorful when it came off the grill.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Fantastic recipe! It takes a little time to shred the zucchini but it was great. The batter looked rather lumpy/stringy even though the zucchini was very fine, but it came out smooth and even. I do think this is more like a fudge cake, but I don't discriminate between fudgey desserts - brownie, cake, cookie, or plain old fudge, if it's good, I'll eat it. The only change I made to the recipe was adding M&Ms instead of walnuts and sub'ing applesauce for oil. The frosting came out slightly runny, but again, liquid fudge is not a problem in my book. I will definitely be making this again and sharing the recipe.

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Absolutely delicious, and very easy. I will be making this again, probably pretty soon. I altered the recipe a little bit just to avoid going to the grocery store. I seasoned the meat with adobo before searing it. Also, didn't have tomato paste so used Goya Sofrito sauce, used a dried cilantro cube instead of fresh (this doesn't really need cilantro anyway, it's not in most ropa vieja dishes that I've had), and added extra garlic. I am sooo happy to have found this recipe!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
Great, great recipe. This has been a hit with everyone I've served it to. I didn't add any white sugar and added only half of the brown sugar to the fruit and it is still plenty sweet. I think the sugar in the preserves is more than enough. Next time I make it, I will even try it without adding any sugar at all to the fruit. The chips are great too - I've been using whole wheat tortillas, butter Pam, and dredging both sides in the sugar/cinnamon mix (1 cup sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon) - they taste great. I've been adding the leftover fruit salsa to my cereal in the morning - there's a lot you can do with this recipe.

BBQ Chili Pasta

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
A good dish for a quick weeknight meal, and it could probably be dressed up for company too. It was fast to prepare, very easy and definitely tasty. Based on some of the reviews, I added cumin to the turkey. I also added a can of Rotel diced tomato with jalapeno. I used slightly less than 1Tbsp of chili powder since I don't like too much heat, but it still had good flavor and the heat accumulated as you ate more. It was a good balance for two people who can handle different spice levels. I think it could be kicked up with some red pepper flakes if some diners wanted more. Again, not a very fancy dish, but we liked it and will be making it again.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Fantastic meatloaf! I've always loved meatloaf, but this will be my new go-to recipe. Very easy and delicious. I cut it down to 4 servings to use 1 pound of meat and it came out very nicely.

Fresh Mint and Cilantro Melon Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
It was good, but the taste of the fresh fruit was almost lost in the mint and cilantro taste. I think I would dial back the amt of herbs next time. Also, this isn't something you can save since the fruit seemed to start fermenting/spoiling quickly when stored.

Parmesan Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, but these ended up rather dense and bland. I might give them one more try, but only if I ran out of other, more reliable bread options.

Butternut Squash Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I loved this! I used what I had on hand, so feta instead of blue cheese and added Italian seasoning to plain bread crumbs. It still turned out really nicely and I will definitely be making it again. I think the saltiness of the blue cheese will be nice instead of the milder feta, but you probably can't go wrong either way.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Great recipe - couldn't be easier and it's delicious. I had meat intended for pot roast that I prepared this way instead and it was delicious. Great for leftovers too - in salads, etc.

Spicy Coconut and Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
The marinade smelled good when putting it together, but the shrimp just didn't taste good. Won't make it again.

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Delicious on a cold day. I made a big batch of it and then put 1/2 in the fridge, 1/2 in the freezer - easy to pull out later. I also added some small dumplings (just flour and water mixed and dropped by the spoonful into the boiling soup) and topped with feta cheese crumbles when I was ready to eat.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Thought it sounded like an interesting recipe, but I wasn't sure how it would turn out. It was great and I will definitely make it again. We were snowed in, so I had to use what was in the house. Substituted 1/2 onion (chopped) for the green onion, taco sauce for enchilada sauce and pita bread for tortillas. By stuffing the pitas (which I had still crisped up in a saute pan first) with the potato stuffing, it added a nice bulk and made them very easy to handle. Using McCormick Mexican Seasoning is a nice short cut for the seasoning too. It was a delicious, if non-traditional, snowy night meal :-)
