Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
I used carnival squash because I haven't loved acorn in the past. It took an hour to roast but this dinner was worth it. It looked so beautiful and was really filling. I didn't love the celery. It could go without it. I might try some toasted pine nuts next time. There will definitely be a next time.

Azalina's Mint Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This recipe has been a bigger adventure than I anticipated. As I type my hands are covered in yellow as if a highlighter exploded all over them from cutting up tumeric root. I had never done that before. Nor had I toasted anise or cinnamon or even seen cardamom pods. Which is why I love this recipe. One thing that confused me was the toasted coconut. I realized mine was sweetened, so I went back to the store where my only other option was a whole coconut. My boyfriend had to hatchet it open for me, and I'm sure there's a better way to shred and toast it than what I did. It looked a bit like an episode of Lucy. I had a tough time getting the curry paste to become a paste. My blender's motor was struggling, so I ended up adding almost a cup of water. Plus is ended up a little gritty, so make sure to blend better than I did. But overall this was a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. I delivered some to friends and they raved about it. I'm so glad I tried it! Thanks Azalina!

Mango-licious Tilapia

We made this in a hurry and were pleasantly surprised. This salsa is amazing and this would also be good reincarnated as a burrito!

This was very good but I can't help wondering if it would be extra delicious with rosemary.

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Two minutes each side burned one of my sides on high. I would say medium high heat is better.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I made this on a sick day with the leftover liquid from a collard greens experiment and chicken stock. Really good! I liked it with the balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese. Worked well as a meal with biscuits on the side. I'll be freezing lots of leftovers too!

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Great basic chicken recipe. Ate it with some kabocha and orzo. My only complaint was that my chicken stuck to the grill, so I guess the oil you marinate it in isn't enough to keep it from sticking. I'll add it on the grill next time.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
The first time my boyfriend and I had these we thought they were just ok, then we realize that they get way better a day or two later as leftovers. I made some tonight to keep in the fridge for tomorrow, when I plan to wrap them all up and freeze for easy to-go meals. Definite keeper!

Where did I go wrong? This recipe was just "Eh" for me. I'm going to try again with sweet potato in it.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
So good. But once you make it, you know how it gets to be that good. Maybe I'll try a lower-fat version next time. Made enough to feed three twice over. Loved it!

Turned out a little too greasy for me with not enough crisp, but I'll definitely try again.

This was pretty yummy, but I had a hard time with the top burning before the fish was done...maybe use a thinner slice.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
The liquid turned out to be way too much, for me. I think the tomato paste adds water. I would cut it back to a cup and a half.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
First taste and I said: "Oh yeah momma!" It was so good. I didn't even have all the time to marinate it, and I did it in the oven for 20 minutes, rice on the side. Also, I took the extra marinade, added some flour (pre-whisked into water) and heated it for a sauce. Yum!
