Balsamic Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
A little too much on the sweet side for my taste, probably because of the caramelized onions. Also not very appealing visually. Don't think I will make this again.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I have to give this one star in order to post this review, but if I could I would not even give it that! :(

San Antonio Taco Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This is definitely a keeper! Quick, easy, and very tasty! I did substitute about a cup of well rinsed black beans for the kidney beans and made my own salsa (chopped tomato, minced coriander, garlic, minced scallion, and lime juice). Also found that it was very difficult to get the tortillas crisp in the oven. After a good 10 minutes they held their shape but were not as crisp as I would have liked.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
I made one major change to this recipe, which I think really helped. As I was pulling the ingredients together I kept thinking: All this fresh and healthy stuff, why would I want to add half and half? So, I didn't! I added a bit more chicken broth and a little water to make up for the omission, and I thought it was delicious. The gnocci added just enough richness to the mix. The only other change I would make -- and will make next time -- is to add the gnocci during the last few minutes of cooking. I don't think the extra time in the broth helped them at all. Can't wait to have some tomorrow, when I'm sure it will be even better!

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I did use Hungarian Paprika, and the sauce was fairly tasty. However, the "dumplings" (and I use that term loosely) were hard, flavorless lumps that even a liberal coating of sauce could not salvage.

Chicken Avocado Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Very quick and tasty! I quartered the recipe to serve just myself. And, because I know how bland avocado can be without some help, I added a dash of cumin and a dash of garlic powder in addition to the salt, pepper, cilantro, and lime. I also substituted Roma tomatoes because I think they have a better texture for a use like this. Will definitely make this one again!

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Surprised at all the rave reviews for this recipe as presented. WAY too much spinach. Next time(and there will be a next time, as this does have potential) I will use half the spinach and saute it quickly to wilt before adding to eggs. Also substituted about a tsp. of fresh chopped scallion for the onion powder.

Spicy Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Even though, based on other ratings, I increased the hot pepper, there was absolutely nothing "spicy" about these burgers. In fact, the fresh dill gave them a very odd taste.
