Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I ended up pan frying the the caps instead of grilling them so they weren't as "crispy" but the marinade was fantastic. I put the caps on fresh toasted sourdough with cheese. a slathering of fresh made guacamole and a think slice of tomato and i was amazing.

Zucchini Tomato Toss

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Wonderful and simple recipe. I used apple cider vinegar which i think may have made it a little bitter but the sugar cut the acidity nicely. I also added fresh cilantro and a bit of fresh dill.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This came out really well though i have to say, i couldn't tell that there was cilantro in it [instead of the usual basil]. I did change it a bit. I didn't have any white wine vinegar so i used red and added a couple of squirts of lemon juice. The large [more than normal] amount of garlic made it delightfully spicy. Also, when i mixed the pesto with the pasta, i added one finely chopped tomato and 1/4 of a bell pepper and it gave the final dish a little more texture and freshness.

Baked Green Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
I think the amount of bread crumbs was a little too much and probably should have been added at the end as they ended up being a bit soggy when it was all done. Also the cooking time was a little too long as the veggies ended up being a bit too mushy. I think if it cooked a little less, with a little bit more spice [of some kind], it would have been a bit more flavorful.

Tofu Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
This came out really tasty! I used chicken broth instead of water and simmered it for 20 minutes to thicken the liquid a little more. I also ended up adding a bit of extra cumin, cinnamon, bay leaf and ginger, because i only had 1 tbsp. of garam masala. It was a big hit, very flavorful and pleasantly spicy (with a little bit of extra pepper)! Was great served over plain white rice!

Surprise South Beach Mashed 'Potatoes'

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
honestly, without having this side-by-side with mashed potatoes, it is quite satisfying. i added a bit of italian seasoning to mine [just as i do to regular mashed potatoes]. i'd also like to mention that if you are careful not to over-steam the cauliflower, and don't over-puree it, the consistency is a bit heavier, like potatoes.

Pork Chops and Kraut

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This turned out delicious. I was out of caraway seeds [which i know would've made it stellar] but followed the recipe pretty closely, except that i drained half of the liquid before adding half of the flour and half the sour cream. I think if i would've used the correct amounts it may have ended up a bit too soupy...though i'm sure it still would've tasted great. Nice recipe...will make it again!

Mediterranean Roast Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
this was pretty tasty but by the time the potatoes where cooked through, the veggies where practically mush. i cut back on the oil by a 1/4 and it still ended up being too much. i'd recommend starting with half of the oil and then adding more depending on how it looks the first couple of times you go to stir it. also, i think i would rename the recipes "Mediterranean Roasted Potatoes AND Vegetables" considering the veggies actually end up constituting about 1/3 of the total dish!

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
very simple and yummy base recipe but i do agree with a few others that something is lacking. i followed the recipe and added Italian seasoning, about a half cup of shredded mozzarella and some fresh ground black pepper. also, even though i only made 3/4 of the bag of pasta i still needed to add about a quarter more cream cheese and a quarter more milk.

Broccoli Soup II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
this was quick to make and turned out pretty yummy.i pretty much followed the recipe exactly except i added about 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese. the soup ended up being a little too thick so i added about a cup of milk while it was still in the food processor. i also set aside about 1/2 a cup of the cooked broccoli to add to stir in before serving.

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Huge success in my house! I did substitute ground turkey for the beef and it came out really good. i was a little wary of adding so much cheese but once it came out of the oven, the flavors all mixed together perfectly. Will absolutely make this again!

Butternut Squash Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I have already made this 4 or 5 times and it's always a hit. super easy and really really delicious! i use goat cheese instead of blue cheese and whatever herbs i feel like throwing there [rosemary is my fav] and it's just perfect. great for potlucks, holiday meals or any dinner [though the prep/cook time is a bit long]! =)

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This came out really wonderful. We ended up broiling the chicken for about 3 minutes on each side [after the initial 20 minutes] and it gave it a nice crispiness. I really liked that the flavor wasn't too overpowering but then again we only marinated the chicken for about an hour. Will definitely make this again.

Preety's Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
quick and easy recipe. following the advice of others, i cut down the amount of onions by about half and i think it was definitely an improvement. i also added a little but of fresh cilantro [for color] and a little bit of feta on top [instead of salt]. will definitely make this again!

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
these were a huge hit...definitely didn't need a bun or condiments! i had some fresh spinach so i cooked that instead of using the frozen kind and i added some onions for a little extra flavor. the burgers were a "drippy" so a baked them in the oven first for about 10 minutes on 400 to keep them from falling apart on the grill. i will definitely make these again!
