Fire-Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I love this recipe. So simple - and I ALWAYS have these things in my pantry! As others I added more garlic and chopped onion. But I also prefer the jalapeno or zesty chilie tomatoes so I subbed that and it gave it a nice punch, plus chopped some black olives and used bowtie pasta. Next time I'm going to add some shrimp!

Chicken Avocado Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
Just got a new pizza stone for Christmas and have been trying all sorts of new concoctions - loved this one! I spiced up the avocado with a little more cilantro and lime and added onion - plus did not use the chicken. I was so excited to try it I burned my mouth!

Gloomy Day Smoothie

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This was good - the reason for 3 stars is because for me the banana and OJ overwhelmed the mango flavor I was hoping for. I used frozen mango, frozen banana and plain yogurt. Next time I will use fresh mango and an orange instead of OJ!

Bacon Asparagus Pizza

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
LOVE. anything. with. chevre! Did pretty much everything as is. My SO hates tomatoes so I only put them on half and cut the amount of chevre in half. Mixed some parmasan in with the mozzarella and chopped up a jalepeno* with the asparagus for more of a kick. I was hesitant about not using sauce - but I listened to a few of the other posts - and loved it without. Thank you! (*highly recommended)

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
These. things. are. BOMB! Even feta hating boyfriend loved them*. 4 stars because I changed just a tad - chopped basil and jalepeno in food processor and mixed in with the rest. Added a little worcestershire sauce. Also found them to be a little wet - so I added bread crumbs. Letting them sit in the fridge for a few hours def. helped. These will be a summer time staple! (*I lied about the feta - what he doesn't know won't kill him!)

Sheila's Perfect Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
BOMB! and pricey! Made this for a bachelorette beach party and it got rave reviews. Cointreau is $30 a bottle - I bought a 1/2 pint of Grand Marnier for $11 and used half of it - may try orange liquore next time. Also this is a TON of fruit - use less fruit and I don't think you'd be disappointed. I cut the sugar in half and added some rum at the end - soda just makes it a little carbinated. YUMMM!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
these little guys were so cute! made them with the blue cheese ball in the shape of an igloo for a holiday party and everyone RAVED about them. A little messy to make - I recommend a piping bag...I didn't have one and used a simple sandwich bag which worked fine.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
These were amazing...and a smash hit at various Easter weekend functions. I'm not a huge fan of raisins - and was glad to find this recipe didn't ask for them. The pineapple was a pleasant surprise and kept the cupcakes moist. I doubled the recipe and ended up with 30 or so cupcakes and drained the pineapple.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Really good! Other recipes I've tried were too "fishy!" I cooked them in my Foreman Grill so as not to heat up the house on a hot summer day. I added hot sauce to the sauce to give it some kick. Another note - first time I used canned salmon - the bones scared me at first, I took out the big chunks and once everything was mixed together they disappeared.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
My go to chili! I prefer a lighter chili with lots of veggies and this is perfect. I took others advice and browned the pepper and onion in the pan with the meat to cut down on time. I also use veggie stock and a little chicken bouillon. I add a dash of this and a dash of that to taste - but a great starter.

Seafood Piccata

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
My first attempt at piccata minus the can! I like it - I added veggie broth to cut some of the wine taste, added capers and cut out some of the butter. To save on cash I use a Trader Joes bag o' frozen seafood - shrimp, bay scallops and calamari. YUMM!

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
So very good! I was too lazy to do the salsa myself and not a huge fan of mango, so a little pico de gallo and pineapple to the rescue. Good thing too - we needed that sweetness to cut down on the spicy from the tuna. Warning: you will breath in cayan fumes!

Lemon and Cilantro Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I like this recipe - it's very light and actually easy to make. 6 lemons for zesting is unnecessary! I buy 2 large ones and that works perfect for zest and juice.

Firecracker Fried Chicken Drumsticks

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
these are always welcome at super bowl parties! I use Franks Red Hot wing sauce, worcestershire and cayenne and leave the skin on to soak for at least 24 hours. I add more cayenne to the batter as a lot of the sauce burns off in the oil. Make sure the oil is HOT. Awesome for chicken fingers too.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
These were absolutely amazing. We like spice, but I felt 2 jalepenos were fine - and I was happy I made that choice. Didn't have a problem with the uncooked sweet potato. This got my take-out happy fiance to eat and enjoy something healthy - this will become a week night staple.
