California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This sandwich is great for dinner or lunch. I add sliced avocados to this and use ciabatta instead of focaccia. They are easier to eat if you make them open faced, plus you can stack more veggies on it that way.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This is a really good recipe, very similar to what you might get at an Indian food restaurant. To make it a vegan dish I substituted plain soy yogurt for the milk and about 1/4 cup of water as the yogurt made it a little too thick to stir well.

Tangy Vegan Crockpot Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
The only reason I rate this with three stars is because my wife seemed to like it. I'm not sure what it was about this, weather it was the texture or the flavor but I did not enjoy this recipe, sorry.

The Best Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I followed the directions exactly and this turned out really good. I would recommend adding crushed red pepper before blending to add some heat to this as its very mild.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Good cookies, be sure to leave them just undercooked when you pull them out of the oven or they will be a little too crumbly.

Smoked Salmon Pizette

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This recipe was pretty good. Kind of a different take on the lox bagel. I served these as mini-bagels. The spread was kind of runny at first but firmed up in the fridge overnight. Next time I will toast the bagels separately instead of baking them with the spread on, I was not fond of that.

Vegetarian Cassoulet

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This dish is good, and easy. I can't find "savory" around so I just use a leaf or two of sage in this. I usually have to add a healthy pinch of salt to this but otherwise I really like it.

Portuguese Chourico and Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This was pretty ok. I made it according to the recipe and tried it both on a bun, like a sloppy joe, and over mashed potatoes. Served over mashed potatoes it is much better. It wasn't bad but I don't know if I'll make this again.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
These are good but really sweet. I used Coors Original and ended up adding about 6 ounces of water to thin them out.

Che Guevara's Ceviche

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
I left out the celery and used bottled lime juice. I think fresh is definitely the way to go, it was still very good but a little limey.

Gnocchi with Cherry Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This was ok, I would maybe add a little canned tomato sauce or something to make more of a sauce. Also the cherry tomato skins were a bit too tough, I think I would use skinned tomatoes for this since the crushed tomatoes have skins too.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This was really good, the only thing I did differently was used tofu instead of chicken. Definitely marinate the tofu and cook it separately, otherwise it's a little to "tofo-ish".

Tequila Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
This stuff is legit. I adjusted the servings to 2 and it was perfect. I tried it following the recipe exactly and it was great, then added some chipotle powder to go along with the chipotle shrimp I made. Also great.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
This was really good. I used chipotle salsa and diced up two chipotles to go into it, otherwise I stuck to the recipe. Very easy and delicious.

Grilled Tequila-Lime Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
The marinade was not enough for a pound of shrimp. I doubled it and even then it was almost not enough. Marinated for one hour because others had suggested it but it was not enough time as the shrimp did not take on any flavor. I would maybe try this again but would marinate for at least 3 hours.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Made this recipe as is for a party and it turned out awesome! This can easily be mistaken for pulled pork when shredded.

Easy Garden Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This is very good and simple. I used shallots instead of garlic and red wine vinegar instead of white. Thanks for the recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
These were really good pancakes. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the batter. I did have to add about 3 tbsp of milk to the batter because it was far too thick but otherwise these were perfect.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This is a good and simple recipe. I used easy peel shrimp as they cook more evenly on the grill without drying out.

Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was an interesting take on seven layer dip. I was a little skeptical of the mayo/sour cream mix, but it adds a bit of a spicy kick to an otherwise boring seven layer dip. I took it to a pot luck and it got gobbled up pretty quickly.
