Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
I made this almost exactly as directed by the recipe. The only changes I made were cranking the oven up to 400 and only cooking for 20 minutes. My husband and I loved them! They were light and delicious.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This was so delicious and easy. I already made navy beans so all I had to do was throw everything into the crock pot and put it on high before I left to workout. When I came back I had a nicely simmering, flavorful soup waiting for me.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
These were such a treat. I followed the recipe exactly and served them for Christmas dinner. People inhaled them and there were definitely none left for leftovers.

Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Wow! This is so good. I just finished making it. What a lovely combination of buttery creaminess and tart lemon awesomeness. I am going to serve it in martini glasses for dessert tonight.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Wow! This was tops. I browned up some ground turkey with the onions and skipped the tofu. I already had a bag of chickpeas (still sitting in their lovely subtle broth) in the pressure cooker so when the time came to add those I loaded them on along with a cup of the broth. I kept adding the broth as it cooked to keep it creamy as it kept drying up (my electric skillets fault?) Anyway, by the end I used up almost all the broth and topped it off with a bag of frozen spinach.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Yummy. I took the advice of other reviewers and covered the cauliflower for the first half of the baking time and that cooked it nicely. I'm sure it would have burnt otherwise because it had a nice carmelization and was sizzling loudly by the time the baking ended. I skipped the parsley because I didn't have fresh and I was afraid the dried would burn. This was an awesome, simple way to prepare cauliflower.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I'm sure this recipe is worthy of 5 stars and that this poor rating is due to errors on my part. But maybe someone can learn from my mistakes or help a poor soul who has very little experience cooking salmon (first time!). Anyway, started with frozen salmon (my first error?) and since I don't have a grill I tried the whole bake it then broil it method. It was dry and the marinade didn't really glaze over like I would have liked it to (should I have expected it to?). Also the salmon had weird grey gobs on it when it cooked. Next time I think I'll try rinsing the filets first and then putting it in those foil packets before sticking under the broiler (closer this time).

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
This was really good. I used frozen salmon, thawed it out and threw it into the soup before simmering for 20 minutes. I also took another reviewer's suggestions and deglazed the onions with white wine and skipped the cheddar altogether. Didn't have celery so I just put in celery seed. It was a little chunky so I used my handheld blender to blend it up a bit cause I still wanted chunks but a little creaminess too.

Fresh Spinach and Tarragon Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
This is a great, simple salad. The first time I made it I put a bit of the bacon fat with olive oil. It was a bit greasy - but so yummy! This last time I made it, I cut out the bacon, used only olive oil, cut the dressing ingredients in half and used sherry vinegar. So good. I love the tarragon with the spinach.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
This was super yummy. I basically cooked it exactly as directed except I added chicken sausage at the beginning. It took way longer to cook though. More like 4 hours.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Wow! I loved this dish. This will definitely be a keeper. I doubled (almost tripled) the seasonings, used all the oil, cooked the potatoes, carrots and onions first, added a bag of cooked chickpeas and threw the shredded cabbage on top once the potatoes were well cooked (I like my cabbage kind of crispy). Then I served it over brown rice. So good and healthy!

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I made this a while back and forgot to review it. I wanted to put in my two cents since many people gave it less than stellar reviews. This was awesome and I am making it again today. I used the mortar and pestle and I think that will make a big difference because it really crushes all that flavor out of the garlic. Otherwise, I made it exactly as the recipe instructed. I really love strong flavors so if you do not then beware - if you do however, I recommend this. This is a wonderful, easy way to get your greens and I just love that it is served raw because that is more nutritious. I did not cook it beforehand like some others did. I think it cooks a little in the marinade but one of it's most appealing characteristics is it's crunch. It lends a nice balancing texture to any meals where a soft texture may be more dominant.

Lentil and Green Collard Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This was unexpectedly good. I was trying to get rid of a bag of mixed greens in my fridge before it went bad. I was nervous when I was browning the greens because they tasted bitter, so I put them in my food processor and cut them very small. It ended up blending in beautifully with the lentils, which thickened up into an almost porrige-like consistency. The cinnamon and the cumin bolstered the background flavors nicely and the lemon really brightened and balanced it with a nice finish. Not only was this yummy, it was also healthy. A great way to get your greens.

Licuado de Mango

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Acch! This did not turn out well for me at all. Like another reviewer, I found that the honey and the milk overpowered everything, and I even put way less honey because of some of the reviews. I couldn't drink it! I ended up adding almond extract, a green apple and a teeny bit of cardamom to salvage it. It turned into an Indian smoothie.

Grilled Garlic Artichokes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Oh my. I think I've just made the most gorgeous appetizer on the planet:) I've never worked with artichoke before so I'm really happy everything turned out so awesome. I don't have a grill so I used my George Foreman.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
This turned out wonderful. I ended up using 3 lbs. of berries, a blend of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, and three cups of sugar, and about 1/3 cup of lime juice. I wonder if this freezes well? Also, it never came up to 220 degrees! It got really thick though so I ended up using the freezer test even though I had a thermometer.

Nectarine Sunshine Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Really yummy. I didn't have an orange so I just omitted that. I didn't have vanilla yogurt so I just put plain with about 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. I also put less honey, about a teaspoon. It was good. My husband loved it. I would've liked it colder. Maybe next time I'll put it in the fridge for a bit before drinking it.

Summer Squash Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Yay! I was trying to get rid of some summer squash in my fridge that was limp and on it's last leg. I cut the sugar in half, cut the oil in half, and cut the nutmeg in half after reading the reviews. I also used whole wheat pastry flour and added two apples that I turned into applesauce using the "Sarah's applesauce' recipe on this site. I did have to cook it an extra 7 minutes but it turned out great! Thank you!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Yay! So easy! So yummy! I took out the cream of tartar and the sugar, I added parmesan cheese and pepper. I poured it over a hot pot pie filling and cooked it as the crust. It took way longer for the middle to cook - more like 30 minutes. But it was so worth it. I think I like this better than regular crust! And it's so much easier!

Hot Cranberry Tea

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Mmmmm. I put the berries and water in my crockpot on low the night before - then added the rest the last hour and cut the sugar in half. Next time I might try adding some white tea leaves as well.
