Spaghetti Squash with Pine Nuts, Sage, and Romano

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This was my first foray into the world of spaghtetti squash and wow what an introduction! This recipe was awesome, and when I added some onion and garlic as per other reviewers it made it even better! I also decided to add some sauteed spinach and cut up chicken breasts to the mix and omitted the cheese. Amazing!!!!

Spicy Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This was a great recipe and an awesome new way for me to make salmon. I too did not have a dried chili so I substituted w cayenne pepper/red pepper flakes. I also added a little siracha sauce. I also sprinkled a little bit of panko crumbs on top just to add a bit of a crunch. The two things I did notice was that the sauce recipe definitely needs to be doubled, and that's just for two filets. Also, as per other reviewers I baked on the top shelf for about 15 min and even that was a tad too long (I prefer my salmon on the rarer side) but in the end the fish came out moist and delcious with quite a kick to rave reviews!

Almond Broccoli Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This was a fantastic way to make broccoli! I halved the recipe since there was only 2 of us (but kept the amt of garlic the same, LOVE garlic!!)The only thing I did differently was I steamed the broccoli in the microwave for about a minute before putting them in the pan, this made the texture/crispness absolutely perfect!

Cranberry Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This is a great base recipe, but because of the changes I made I gave it three stars. Since I used 2lbs of meat, I added another egg and 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to the meat mixture. I also put 1 cup of dried cranberries in plus salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley and basil. I then browned the meat balls before putting them in the crockpot. This also prevented them from sticking together. For the sauce: I omitted the chili sauce and instead put 1 can of cranberry sauce and 1 can of tomato sauce in. Plus the ketchup and brown sugar and lemon juice. I also added 3 sliced garlic gloves and another 3 tbs of minced garlic to the onions. This helped combat the sweetness that other reviewers talked about. In the end it was delicious!

Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I love this recipe. I use apple juice instead of the white wine which gives it a little sweeter flavor and Mozzerella cheese instead of parm. I also only bake them long enough for the cheese to melt since the boiling water softens up the peppers.

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Amazingly easy and seriously delicious! The only change I made was using spicy brown mustard instead of dijon cause that's what I had on hand. This is my new favorite salmon recipe!!

Apple and Onion Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was def a dinner winner!! Very easy and very tasty! I too cut the roast in half and added some spices before browning the roast (salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and some CINNAMON which really complimented the apples!). I placed the roast in the pot and actually added the soy sauce, worcestershire sauce and some APPLE JUICE (maybe like 1/4 cup) to the water to loosen up the brown bits and tossed that into the cooker. I also used 2 apples and 1 onion. Because I have a larger pot, i needed to add some more liquid, so I put about half a box of beef stock in. I cooked it on low for 5 hours, and my meat was a little dryer than I would've liked...but not a huge deal. While the meat sat I made the gravy, I strained the liquid and put the apples and onion through a food processer and added it back to the pan. Then I added some more apple juice to bring out that apple flavor and about a tablespoon of red wine and boiled it until it thickened up (about 10 min) stirring occassionally. No cornstarch or browning sauce needed! Delish to begin with and also great as leftovers! :-)
