Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Yummmmy! I did modify the original recipe a little bit. I substituted green onion for the onion, fresh cayenne peppers (3 seeded and chopped) for the ground cayenne pepper. I sauteed the green onion, chopped cayenne peppers and two gloves of fresh garlic in about 2 T of butter until tender. I roasted the squash in a 375 oven as others had suggested prior to adding it to the pan with the sauteed onion mixture and 3 cups of chicken broth. I had to simmer the mixture about 10 minutes so that the squash was the right consistency to blend with my hand blender (right in the pan). I also added a little salt and fresh ginger. I blended in about 4 ounces of reduced fat cream cheese as the last step. My boyfriend raved about the soup! This soup will find its way to our table a lot during the upcoming cooler months! Delicious!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
This chicken was delicious! I didn't have any ranch dressing so I substituted a creamy parmesan peppercorn dressing instead. I used only a few shakes of Himalayan salt and omitted the sugar. I will definitely be using this marinade throughout the summer! Thank you Theresa for a great recipe!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
We loved this recipe! I did add some dried cilantro and ground cumin (about 1/2 tsp each) and put the lemon juice in the marinade instead of waiting right before it was served. I also used boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs. This is definitely restaurant quality dining!

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Delicious! I couldn't find walnut oil but the dressing was still very good even with substituting EVOO for the walnut oil! Plan to make it again today!

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Easy to make...adult and kid friendly, too! I cut the amount of butter in half and added a little olive oil instead to save on calories and saturated fat. These were a big hit!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Loved this soup! Made a few minor changes based on other reviews...Used beef base instead of chicken broth. Used a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes instead of the 4 cups of tomato sauce. Was a nice hardy soup on a cool spring day! Thank you for the great recipe Jamie!

Garlic Dill New Potatoes

This recipe is awesome just as written! I had some fresh dill from my garden and fresh garlic and new red skin potatoes from the market. I still feel like there is a "party in my mouth"! Thank you for this recipe!! :)

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This was very tasty! I roasted my veggies in the oven like others had suggested. I baked it in the removable crock of my slow cooker then kept it warm in the crock pot until we were ready to eat it. Everyone LOVED it and it went well with the grilled portobella mushrooms and salad that we had for dinner!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This is an awesome base recipe! I read a number of reviews and incorporated some of the things that others suggested. I doubled the garlic, used one red pepper and one green pepper and added a diced onion and some escarole to the vegetable mixture. I also added some hot poultry Italian sausage that had been browned and crumbled first. Instead of fettucine, I used linguine because it's a little lighter. I didn't have sour cream on hand so I substituted plain Greek yogurt. I love spicy so I used closer to 1 tsp of cayenne pepper. This is a keeper!!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
After reading the reviews, I made the following changes: Used 8 oz of semisweet baking chocolate and eliminated the cocoa powder. Separated the eggs and whipped the egg whites before folding into the rest of the mixture. I brought this to a dinner party last night and served it topped with whipped cream and fresh raspberries. Not a crumb was left and everyone wanted the recipe! We paired this dessert with a bottle of 7 Deadly Zins wine from Sonoma Valley which turned out to be an excellent pairing! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe, Shana!

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Very delicious and nutritious! I left out the zucchini and the corn (didn't have any), added a second jalapeno pepper and used an orange pepper instead of green as that's what I had on hand. I used one can of black beans and one can of pinto beans. This version was quite spicy, but that's how we like it! Great recipe and very easy to alter based on what you have in your pantry!

Ingrid's Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
I made this two days ago and have used the dressing on three occasions. It is delicious and gets better over time! I omitted the blue cheese dressing as I didn't have any on hand. I also had to substitute apple cider vinegar for the red wine vinegar, lite mayonnaise for the regular mayo and dijon mustard for the dry mustard. Even with those changes, this dressing is awesome. I did add a little bit of milk to thin it down as it was a little thick for my tastes. Will never buy caesar salad dressing again!

Hummus III

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
This is a great starter recipe for some awesome hummus! I love garlic so I added a couple of extra freshly minced cloves. Fresh lemon juice is a must, as well as about 1 tsp of ground cumin and a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper. Like other reviewers, I used a bit less tahini and had to use some reserved juice from the garbanzo beans (about 4-6 TBLS) in order to get the right consistency. No need to buy hummus when you can make it as awesome as this!

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This was very tasty. I substituted fresh minced garlic for the garlic powder because I love cooking with fresh garlic! This made a lot of marinade and I hate pouring marinade down the drain, so I cut this recipe in half and still had plenty to marinade 10 boneless chicken thighs. Am planning on using this marinade again today for beef and chicken kabobs. Should be amazing for both kinds of meat!

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This was very good and easy to make. I did add a little bit of vanilla extract to it which enhanced the flavor. I only wanted to make one loaf so I scaled the recipe down to 10 servings without any problems. I used this as a base for strawberry shortcake. Several of my guests went back for seconds. I had a request to make this again for Father's Day to go along with some locally grown organic strawberries! YUMMY!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This is good. I've made this bruschetta topping on a few occasions and it's always a big hit. Never any leftovers. Be sure to let the topping marinade for a little while to let the flavors come together. I have made this without the sun-dried tomatoes as I didn't have any and it was still delicious!!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This is a very versatile salad. You can use different color peppers, add a jalapeno pepper to add a little more kick, etc. I've made this with dried cilantro if that's all I had on hand, substituted apple cider vinegar for red wine vinegar and it's still delicious. I usually cut down on the amount of sugar as I don't find it necessary. More than one clove of garlic usually finds its way into this recipe when I make it! It's marinating in the refrigerator now...can't wait until dinner is ready! :) EDIT: I made this again today and decided since sweet corn is in season, to lightly steam a couple of ears of corn then cut the kernels off the cob for the salad. Really so much better than frozen or canned corn!

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This was good. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could! I brought it to a training class for natural health professionals...served it with organic rice crackers. Some people asked if it was tuna fish. Can be addicting!! Great for vegetarians! :)
