Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This is FANTASTIC stuff. Easy, tasty and great for you. Unlike some, I didn't find two cans of black beans overwhelming. I added extra cumin and a lot of black pepper; as I'm not much of an onion fan, I just left that out. I also used dried cilantro instead of fresh (and of course less of it), adding that with the rest of the spices at the beginning. The end result is still terrific. Might eventually try stirring in some diced tomatoes near the end.

Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Tasty enough, but more fattening than marinara without much more payoff.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Very delicious, very easy. I did as some others suggested and doubled the oregano and basil, while also adding a teaspoon each of cumin and curry powder. I used balsamic vinegar (though I might add a bit less next time) and used vegetable stock instead of water for the liquid. Tasty and filling.

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Even though I like spicy food, I only used 1/8 tsp of cayenne when nearly doubling this recipe, and it was still pretty hot! (Of course, I did add half a tbsp of black pepper, which probably played into it.) My steamer was busted, so I simmered the carrots in the broth and threw in a couple sticks of celery that were starting to wilt in the fridge. Only used about 3/4 tsp of salt, but a full tbsp of both dried parsley and basil. Did not double the half and half or the butter. Delicious, creamy, hot and filling.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Absolutely superb, just as the recipe said. Be careful about thoroughly greasing and flouring the pans, though; this is so moist it's very sticky! But scrumptious even right away -- can't wait to try it tomorrow.

French Silk Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Fabulous, easy frosting. I did not have unsweetened chocolate so I used two squares of dark (54% cacao) chocolate to delicious results. My only caveat was that this did not seem to me to be quite enough to frost a whole cake (two layers, frosting between the layers), but that might only be because it was so scrumptious I spread it too thickly. :)

Superfast Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Absolutely delicious -- could not be easier or quicker, and yet the results are top-notch. Served it to three different guests this week, each of whom raved about it. Used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning Mix.

Barlow's Blackened Catfish

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
Delicious and so simple! I made this almost exactly as prepared, except that I (1) cut about half a teaspoon of the cayenne and substituted half a teaspoon of Creole seasoning, and (2) was out of Italian dressing so used olive oil instead. (In future I will probably use olive oil instead of the butter to coat the filets as well.) Came out absolutely perfect. It's a hot and spicy recipe, but that's exactly why I love it!

Summer Vegetable Ratatouille

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
My first time ever to make ratatouille, and it came out perfect thanks to this simple recipe. The changes I made were few: I had only one green bell pepper and no zucchini, but an extra eggplant and a little more tomato. I also tossed in some mushrooms, and added a bit of oregano and balsamic vinegar. Scrumptious served over couscous.

Garlicky Summer Squash and Fresh Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Simple, fast and terrific! I didn't deviate much from the recipe as given: two ears of corn kernels instead of one, only about 1/8 cup onion, and as I had no fresh parsley I sprinkled in a bit of dried. Came out fresh and delicious. i served it to guests who raved about it. This will be a go-to summer side dish for me from now on.

Tandoori Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I made this as directed except that I only put 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne, and added 1/2 tablespoon of a tandoori seasoning mix I have. Also I had ground ginger instead of fresh. Marinated the fish overnight, broiled as suggested. VERY tasty! Will make this again.

Sweet Summer Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
It came out nowhere nearly as pink as pictured, so I wondered if I'd done it right -- but I must have, because this is delicious! I added one scoop of vanilla-flavored whey protein so it could serve as a meal replacement. Thick, creamy and scrumptious.

Strawberry-Pineapple Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
Very tasty! I changed it up a fair bit - I used pineapple chunks instead of pineapple juice, added a full scoop of vanilla whey protein, and added a lot of ice; also I left out the sugar, b/c if you have all that fruit and yogurt, it's sweet enough for my taste. Came out very well, though next time I will add more ice for a thicker texture.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Delicious, crunchy, savory and oh-so-easy! That said, I halved the salt and still found it a bit salty; I think 1/4 teaspoon would be enough.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
WONDERFUL. I was unsure about the mix of ingredients when I made the marinade, but it came out absolutely delicious. The only modification I made was using a little extra garlic, b/c I love it and can't get enough. My only issue was that the salmon was not nearly done after 20 minutes - 30 was closer to the mark - but I assume that's more about variations between ovens.

Heavenly Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Very good. I made only minor changes -- I used skim milk, vanilla Greek yogurt, vanilla-flavored whey protein instead of the flax seed, and omitted the honey because I knew the blueberries and banana would make it sweet enough. Extremely tasty!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
Easy and delicious! Subbed low-fat ingredients for most of it and lost absolutely no flavor. My only caution is that it needs to stay in the freezer or at least in the fridge until just before serving. I had it out for only 20 minutes before we ate, and already it was very, very soft -- not beyond the point of being edible, but softer than you'd hope. Still a quick and scrumptious treat.

Cajun Baked Catfish

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
Quick, easy and delicious! I put in a bit less garlic salt than the recipe called for, and a bit more pepper, but that was my only deviation from the recipe. Spicy without being overly hot (despite all that cayenne, which had me worried). Will definitely be making this again.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Bookmarked this recipe to make some cookies for a friend's party - then discovered I had some ingredient problems at the last minute. Instead of vanilla, I used 2 tsp. brandy; instead of a full 1 2/3 cups of white chocolate chips, I had one cup of white chocolate chips and 2/3 cups walnuts. And the only cocoa I had on hand was Hershey's Special Dark cocoa. I thought it was still worth a shot -- followed the rest of the recipe to the letter, except for baking 11 minutes -- and the results were FABULOUS. Very tasty, very simple! And the last-minute substitutions worked so well I think I'll use them every time.

Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Followed the advice of others and cut down on the seasoned salt/regular salt, but upped the curry and added a bit of cumin and cayenne. Also threw in matchstick carrots and snow peas, and I used low-fat coconut milk. Results were very tasty. Next time I'll add less onion, though, if any.
