Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Really tasty meatless option! Even my vegetable leery husband enjoyed it. I was surprised that my toddler who devours most everything did not like it though...can't please everyone! I did have to guess about the number of potatoes and would have preferred that info in weight. But I just kept adding spices until it was no longer bland. And I used green sauce because we aren't fans of red enchilada sauce. But overall a great, creamy, easy recipe!

Zesty Taco Casserole

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
There are way too many spices in this. I should've read the other reviews before making it. Also, it's not much of a casserole, more of a dip or filling. It was alright, but even my mexican loving husband didn't eat that much of it. So I doubt I'd make it again.

Baked Ziti Primavera

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
Very good pasta dish even after tweaking the amounts to a reasonable serving size. I will probably work on it a little more, but will definitely have it again!

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
This simple recipe rocks! It never occurred to me that balsamic vinegar on avocados would be so tasty. I just made one serving, so a couple of tomatoes, half an avocado, and a drizzling of the dressing was sufficient (not a fan of onions). Fabulous!

Grilled Veggie-Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
This was alright, but I wouldn't call it spectacular. I wasn't a huge fan of the bleu cheese...maybe it would be better with something else? I will try it again though, just to be sure!

Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Not only were these very difficult to make attractively, no one that I sampled them on liked them much if at all.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
So easy and delicious that I want to go finish the pan right now! All the kids and adults loved it. The only big change I made was to use an 8x8 pan and as many sandwiches as it held. But I didn't decrease the toppings at all, so it's fabulous and rich!

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This is nearly exactly how I've always marinated my cucumbers, but I never thought to add dill and LOVE it!

Lemon Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Great sauce, although next time I'll have to measure the lemon juice because it could have used more. (I just squeezed a lemon, but it may not have been enough) I also added mushrooms, asparagus, salt and pepper. Everyone ate it up!

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
FABULOUS! The pine nuts are imperative and really make the salad. I had to sub balsamic for red wine vinegar because that's all I had, but will try the red wine next time. Also, I will definitely reduce the oil considerably as suggested and maybe add the feta on top just to try it out. Very good though!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Fantastic taste, aroma, and appearance! I only had regular pesto but would love to try it with sun-dried tomato pesto. My only problem was trying to keep the toppings on while I cut and ate it!

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Fantastic taste and quick to throw together (partly because we don't do onions). I used the same amount of sauce and only as much pasta as we needed. I also added mushrooms and spinach but could see a lot of other options would be good and change it up.

Cream of Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Really tasty soup! The tomato soup I had on hand wasn't real thick or creamy, so I eliminated the water and one can of tomatoes. Still fabulous and can't wait to try again with creamier tomato soup.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
This salsa is outstanding! I've had one before and went searching for the recipe, and this is a great one. I didn't have raspberries but had a couple of nectarines that needed used, so I substituted them. The result was better than I could have imagined. It tasted wonderful and really rounded out the color! I also used apricot preserves. I can't imagine docking this recipe stars because of the labor...anything that calls for this much chopping is obviously going to take a little time! I always make up the time by buying my cinnamon pita chips but will definitely try making these tortillas next time.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I agree that it's a good starting point but made most of the recommended changes. I doubled the recipe, added worcestershire and soy sauces, garlic and minced onions, replaced 1/3 of the vegetable broth with white wine, added "meat" crumbles, and decreased the sour cream. It was a hit and a keeper of a recipe--modified of course.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Excellent stir-fry sauce! I used whatever veggies I had on hand and omitted the salt and it was fantastic!

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
A really good experience for my first time making an eggplant dish. My only changes were to omit the flour for frying, used olive oil, baked with the pasta as the bottom layer, and topped with mozzarella. Loved it!

Broccoli and Cheese Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
I agree that it needs a little spicing up, but I like the basic recipe and versatility of being able to change up the veggies. I used asparagus, soy milk, and no meat because I'm vegetarian and it still turned out well. I would like to try the crescent roll bottom though!
