Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
This was good, but needed a few changes. To make it healthier, use half the butter. A half cup is excessive, and it really doesn't need it. Used rolled oats, instead of quick cooking. It doesn't make a huge difference in the texture, and it's healthier. Also, I prefer leaving the skin on for better nutrition, if the texture bothers you (I don't think it's a big deal) leave the pears unpeeled, since they have thinner skin and won't be too bothersome texture wise and peel the apples. Also, so long as your fruit is nice and sweet, you really can cut the sugar and honey some. Also, adding cinnamon to food makes it TASTE sweeter without adding any actual sugar. Plus, this recipe really needs it. Cinnamon and a little ground ginger or its boring. I know. Tried both ways. It's lovely with some plain yogurt!

Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
This was good. Used soymilk instead of cream and all broth, instead of the water, as I had no boullion. Worked fine this way, but didn't have the same oomph as it would have, had I used cream. Knowing this, I popped in some feta at the end. Also, added 4 or 5 garlic cloves, as it just wasnt super flavorful without it. Good recipe that can be tweaked to suit your tastes and what you have on hand.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Great just as written. The only thing I did differently was make it with a little less chicken and added another pepper. Ounce for ounce it was the about the same as written though. Delicious!

Kale and Quinoa with Creole Seasoning

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
This was pretty good! Will make again. I did add beans and some lemon juice, to brighten it up a bit and make it a meal. For those at a high altitude (we are always forgotten about when people write these recipes) the quinoa is always best cooked by increasing the liquid by a little less than 1/4 cup or so, and turning it to more like a "medium low" than a "low", when it comes time. Also, increase cooking time by a few minutes, for liquid to be adaquately absorbed. Oh, and I found it to be a bit salty as well. I would cut the salt in half and add a little more cajun seasoning.

Naked Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
My husband wasn't a fan of this. I thought it was alright. I did not use the bacon, added a couple pats of butter and used olive oil. I used a bit more of all the veggies and a bit less shrimp. I also added a few pine nuts. For the most part made it true to the recipe. Maybe it would be better with the bacon.
