Creamy Veggie Potato Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This soup was easy and a great hit with my family. First time I've ever made a cream-of-anything soup, and it turned out so well, I'm going to try other cream based soups. I didn't have any cream on hand, so instead of using cream and water, I used 2% milk for the liquid. Like the other posters, I added quite a lot more of the salt and pepper (about triple) than this recipe called for, but it was just right. I garnished with a small amount of shredded sharp cheddar when serving.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Using up the veggies we picked up from the CSA this week, I was cooking up a storm yesterday. As a result, we didn't get to eat very much of any one thing. Pulling the leftover Spaghetti Squash from this recipe out of the fridge today I wasn't too sure how it might reheat. Wow was I ever in for a treat!! This recipe reheats so well that I have to say that it actually tastes better the next day. The flavors seemed to have blended a bit more and mellowed a bit. The feta added a nice creamy texture this way, too. Even the squash itself was nicer, having absorbed some of the moisture from the rest. For those who are looking for a recipe to cook ahead of time and pop in the fridge for a meal later in the week (next day's lunch), this is the one for you! Microwaving is perfect for this leftover meal.

Turnip Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
The best thing about this recipe is that it allowed me to prepare the turnips I received from the CSA in a manner that my family would eat them. That does count for a lot, so I'm glad I found this recipe. On the other hand, both my girls made the comment that the dish didn't taste like anything. My husband even confessed that it was needing some salt and pepper. As a vegetarian, I did not eat it, so I cannot honestly say anything firsthand on the flavor. The biggest downfall for me was that it required a lot of work to prepare a side dish that didn't get the fanfare. As I mentioned, they did eat it, just not with rave reviews, and with all the effort that went into it I was hoping for a better turnout. If I make this again, I will add some shredded cheese and maybe use additional spices to jazz it up a bit.

Savory Roasted Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
OMG! How did you come up with this recipe?! It is absolutely scrumptious!! With these ingredients being harvested right now locally (I live in Tucson, AZ), I was able to use all organically grown fresh vegetables and it was simply divine. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Roasted Vegetable Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Mmmmm... my house smells yummy! Next time I will add the veggies about half way through. I like them a bit firmer.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Embarrassed to say, but I'm 40 years old and this is my very first baked chicken! Anyway, wanted you to know that my family loves your recipe!!! As a vegetarian (I don't eat chicken), I really appreciated the recipe because it was so simple and I didn't have to handle the bird much to make it. It's nice that you posted a recipe that is so good and easy to make that I have confidence serving it to my family even though I can't taste-test it first!
