Easy Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
I wanted to serve this with a Mexican meal, so I substituted a little tomato sauce for some of the chicken broth. It's my new favorite Mexican rice. I like to have it without hot spices to balance the hot chilies in other dishes on the same plate.

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This is fantastic. Made it tonight and served it over some homemade beef enchiladas. It is going into the keeper pile. Next I'm going to try and make some to freeze. If it works I can make enchiladas anytime we want. Yum!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Really good and makes a lovely glaze cover on the salmon at cooking. I did sub. lime juice and fresh cracked pepper because I don't keep lemon pepper at home. Otherwise, followed as written. Excellent way to grill salmon.

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I agree with many of the comments here. What a wonderful memory jog to inspire me for this morning's breakfast. I had everything in my refrigerator; even made this type of breakfast before, just wasn't thinking about it. Thanks for the inspiration. By the way, I did use butter instead of olive oil, my preference for eggs.

Marinated Beet Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Overall I thought this was very good. I used fresh beets because I had them and Vidalia Onion fresh from the farm. The mustard flavor was a little overpowering, so next time I may reduce it slightly. It did get better with time for all the flavors to mingle. Thanks for this recipe.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
I've made this several times and its a great recipe that works well if you want to alter it a little for different tastes or what you have handy. I've used asiago cheese instead of the feta, also different vinegars like white balsamic, white wine and rice wine. Also, not a fan of pine nuts, but almonds go great. If you want your spinach wilted, you can put it in the colandar and then drain the orzo ( you can also substitute a variety of pastas) over the spinach to wilt it without extra cooking. Enjoy.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I used Ancho Chili Powder and Nellie and Joe's Key lime juice as we like to reserve our fresh limes for eating plain. Marinated for about 6 hours, grilled with pineapple, zuchini, onion and mushrooms. Hubby was prepared not to like, wound up loving it. Spices blend nicely together.

Sweet and Tart Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Interesting if your strawberries don't pop with flavor. Normally I like my strawberries "as is" but when they need something the addition of balsamic vinegar and pepper gives a nice kick.

Roasted Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Roasting the potatoes didn't make a big difference for this one to me. I have a similar recipe that uses a combination of mayo, sour cream and horseradish for the dressing; rest of ingredients are the same, and I prefer it.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Fabulous. Hubby is a convert after being reluctant to try. So easy and refreshing. I did have to substitute wine vinegar once and its just as good. For a twist, try adding a few thinly sliced onions to the mix instead of the ginger. We live near Vidalia, so sweet onions are frequently in our pantry. They make an excellent addition.

Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
Had this on wild sockeye salmon. Marinated about an hour and then grilled, followed recipe as written except for powdered ginger as i was out. Wouldn't change a thing.

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
These are perfect the way they are. I did grind some sea salt and fresh pepper, mix it together and then sprinkle it over the potatoes and oil I put in a plastic bag to coat. They turned out wonderfully, just enough flavor to compliment the grilled chicken and fresh veggie crudities. Even hubby loved them, and he's always resistant to trying new recipes.

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This was wonderful. Flavorful, pretty and easy to boot. I had to substitute garlic, spring onion and a little sweet onion for the shallots, rice wine vinegar for the red wine vinegar and goat cheese for the feta; but it was still terrific. So flavorful I forgot to save the last bite so I could try it cold. Can't wait to do this one again. UPDATE: Tried this with golden beets today, still excellent. Because I'm on low sodium restriction I'm sticking with the goat cheese, and I crumble it fresh over each serving to help it stay a little crumbly.

Creole Okra

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
I've been making a similar recipe since I started cooking. Its great for frozen okra and even better if you can find fresh. Also, you can add a couple of stalks of dices celery to it for additional texture. I also will add browned ground beef and serve over rice for the ultimate in comfort food that still has some spice. Enjoy.

Teriyaki Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Makes a great, light base for doing a quick stir fry, not too sweet and something I think I can tweak as I get more acquainted with the combinations.

Zesty Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
I first saw this recipe in an old Southern Living, then I lost my copy of the magazine. So glad to have it here on the web. Normally I make the typical Southern mustard type potato salad, but this is a wonderful change. We especially enjoy it with fresh shrimp (in Savannah we get lots) and other summer grilled meats.

Avocado-Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This is a great recipe. After reading the reviews, I made with the Mexican Bean Salad dressing from this site and it turned out so great I kept going back for more. While the original recipe is good, I like the addition of black olives and the different dressing to give it more zing. Such a plus not to have the typical mayo dressing.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Just not the flavor I wanted. Don't know exactly what would have gotten it there. I prepared it with fresh snow peas and a little onion, still no help. Thanks anyway, this one just isn't for me but I'm glad some people like it.

Carib Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
A really good black bean soup. I pureed the entire dish because I like the silky texture. I did add some salt since I cooked my black beans without any salt added and it has a little too much cayenne for my taste. With these adjustments I think it will be a five star. Serving suggestions: a mound of rice in the middle of the bowl, some drained plain yogurt (for thicker texture) and onions, or perhaps in a "bread bowl." Very versatile.
