Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Good! I really did like the flavors. I used mint rather than cilantro and I'm really glad I did, although definitely watch how much mint as it can overwhelm the salad. I also used a sweet onion.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Pretty good, but could use a bit more of a kick. Made it as a casserole (layered tortillas and potato/bean filling). I also added 2 aruba peppers to the tomatillo sauce, and blended it using my stick blender (best appliance ever!). Could use extra cheese. Also might try adding some jalapeno to the sauce to make it spicier.

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Easy and refreshing. I used sweet onion and doubled the sugar. I also used regular kosher salt rather than the seasoning salt.

No Ordinary Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I've made this meatloaf twice now. The first time I followed the recipe and only omitted the green bell pepper. Baked it in a loaf pan. It was dense and delicious and made fabulous sandwiches. My one complaint: it was a bit greasy...kind of cooked in it's own fat as it rendered out into the loaf pan. The second time I made a few modifications. *Added: 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. Italian herb no-salt blend *Substituted: 1 lb. broken up ground beef pepper steaks for the ground beef and bell pepper *Cooking: I baked it in a loaf shape on a baking sheet lined with foil. It wasn't as dense, but it was plenty moist and wasn't as greasy. It also had a nice crust on it all the way around. I'll be baking it on a baking sheet from now on. Overall: delicious meatloaf. :)

Spicy Albondigas

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I made this with ground pork as that's what I had. I also used brown rice, which worked just fine. I also think I'll make smaller meatballs next time, so they're more bite sized. I garnished it with fresh avocado and served it with some nice crusty bread. It was delicious and I'll definitely make it again! I'm looking forward to trying it with fresh chilies (instead of canned) when they're available at my farmers market.

Pork and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Good. Used chicken broth because that's what I had. I also found it didn't need any salt. I added a few small turnips in place of one of the potatoes.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
This is a wonderfully hearty stew-like soup. Like several of the reviewers, I doubled the carrot, and increased the barley to 1/3 cup. Because my sausage was highly seasoned, I chose to only add salt and pepper to the soup rather than more Italian seasoning. I've also made this using fresh kale and it was fantastic!

Cheesy Apple and Oat Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This was nice and dense and made a fantastic leftover cold meatloaf sandwich. I did want more apple flavor. And the cheese was a bit salty/overpowering. Next time I'll try upping the apple a bit, and reducing the cheese.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This was *fantastic*!! I will definitely be making this again. Next time I'll try adding some extra firm tofu. I peeled and chopped the potatoes before roasting to get some nice color and roasted flavor. I tossed them in a very small amount of vegetable oil to prevent sticking/burning. I also grated the ginger as I didn't want to bite into a chunk of ginger. I didn't need the whole teaspoon of salt, I only added about 1/2 teaspoon and it was plenty. And like the other reviewers, I don't think it needs the sesame oil. But the freshness of the cilantro was a nice finish.

Vegetable Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This was incredibly easy, and thickened up nicely. But I found the flavor a bit sweet for my liking. I think the combination of the butternut squash (which is sweet) plus the dried fruit was a bit much. Next time I'll try leaving out the dried fruit and add some onions for a more savory flavor.
