Great Green Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
The recipe doesn't look like much, but it is a delicious salad! I didn't have white wine vinegar so I ended up adding about two tablespoons of lemon juice and I left out the sugar. The garlic and dijon give it a bit of a kick. Also took the advice of another cook and added diced pear - a nice touch of sweetness. It's a new favorite!

Braised Leeks and Mustard Greens

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
My husband and I LOVE this dish! I always use kale and usually about a full cup of chicken consomme. I also give it a sprinkle of lemon juice after it's cooked which really brings it to life. It cooks quickly, but preparing the kale and leeks is actually pretty time consuming. UPDATE/SIDE NOTE: adding citrus (like lemon or lime juice) to your greens helps your body absorb the nutrients. =)

Okra and Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Only change was to skip the stewed tomatoes for two chopped roma and a good handful of sliced grape tomatoes; and I threw in the Creole seasoning as suggested by many. I saute the onions first on their own and when they've softened I added everything else. Nice!

TABASCO® Grilled Peppers and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I used one onion to four peppers and sauteed it all on the stove, starting with the onions alone and then adding the peppers. This allows the onions to get softer and leaves the peppers with a slight crunch. I might cut back a bit on the Tabasco next time (maybe 3/4 tsp). Complements many dishes!

Eggplants a la Dawlish

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
These were nice! I didn't have coriander seed, so I used dried parsley and ground coriander - you can really use whatever herbs and spices you have on hand. Next time, instead of cutting into length-wise slices, I'm going to cut them into thick rounds.

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Love sneaking tofu into dishes for the added protein and bulk! This is great. I followed the most helpful review by LJ in terms of spicing it up. Added sauteed onion, zucchini and a chunk of frozen spinach. I also used the no cook lasagna noodles. I'm guessing it'll be better tomorrow after the flavors have marinated overnight... looking forward to it!

Eggnog Russian

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I like egg nog - but a few sips and I'm good. This is a really fun drink! I used vodka as I don't have spiced rum and it's probably better with the rum. I also like it on ice.

Kale and Quinoa with Creole Seasoning

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Two super-foods in one delicious dish!! What I did: made a full cup of quinoa but used only one bunch of kale. I doubled the seasoning (made Creole seasoning from AR) and the salt - that was a mistake! In fact, cut some of the salt - with the chicken broth, you don't need it! I felt that it was lacking some crunch... so I threw in toasted almond slivers and pine nuts - PERFECT! I can't wait to make this again!

New Mom Broccoli Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Not only am I a new mom, I'm also always looking for non-dairy (parve) kugels/casseroles. Not only is this truly do-able for a new mom, it's also delicious!! I followed the recipe almost exactly - only change is I felt it was lacking some kind of spice, so I mixed in... was it paprika? There's a new mom memory for you... Anyway, if you want a green+cheese dish, make Spinach Brownies from AR; if you want a great non-dairy green baked dish, this kugel is excellent (just throw in your own spice preference for a bit of flavor)!

Creamy Horseradish Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I used only mayo (eyeballed the amount) - this spread got more compliments than the dish it accompanied!

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
What an intriguing dish! My husband was the only person who commented about too much "tang" - I would consider cutting the balsamic to 1 1/2 Tbspn actually. Also, keep the fig pieces small and simmer them with the (fresh!) rosemary and thyme. For serving, next time I will smear the cream cheese on a dish, hummus style, and then put the tapenade on top.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I brought this to a friend's party and actually felt guilty that it got the best response of everything served... People wouldn't shut up about it! Added 1/2 cup sour cream; doubled the spinach; used two cans of artichokes (one hearts, one bottoms) because I couldn't find it in a jar; added a few cloves of garlic. Also used mozzarella. Baked about 45 minutes in smaller rectangular pans. You WILL be tempted to eat at least half of it right out of the oven.

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
So happy to find a chicken salad that isn't drowning in mayo or sour cream! Grilled the chicken and then cut into pieces. Added green onion and pepper because I had it. Didn't warm the bean/corn/salsa dressing - just combined and mixed. With the chicken and beans, this makes a very hearty salad!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
The name doesn't lie! I actually do 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup OJ, a tad less yogurt and the consistency is perfect (on the thinner side). No honey needed this way. I also add 1 Tbspn flax oil and ground walnuts for some extra omega-3s (I hate walnuts so this is a great way to hide the taste and get the nutrients). Never gets old with endless fruit combinations!

Make-Ahead Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
A great dish that makes terrific leftovers! Go heavy on the spices - they're good! I didn't do the last step with the cornstarch since we like more soupy consistency. Used a whole bunch of kale - very forgiving recipe that allows you to add whatever you have on-hand.

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Great hearty meal - and healthy too! I used cubed chicken cutlets. Meant to season them while cooking so they absorb some flavor... next time! Used shredded carrots, added garlic with the onion; cumin and coriander in place of rosemary and left out the tomato sauce. I used red lentils but will definitely use brown next time as the red lentils just turned into mush and I had to quickly cook rice for this to be served on. I could kick myself for having forgotten to add the lemon juice at the end... with the cumin, coriander and lemon juice flavors, this becomes very similar to a Persian stew - which is just yumminess all around!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Forget sesame noodles - this is better. Cut the oil to 1/3 cup like everyone; added thawed peas, diced water chestnuts and shredded carrots. I left out the cilantro but will try it next time. Also, made this vegetarian; I'm sure it's great with chicken though too.

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
So good! I ran out of time for grilling as kabobs - I'm sure that's outstanding and can't wait to try it - so I baked covered at 350* for about an hour. I would suggest taking the cover off at some point; we ended up warming leftovers on the stove and pouring the dipping sauce over the chicken. Super tender and great flavor! Very filling when served with rice!

Horseradish Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I'm in love. Not normally a huge horseradish fan, the combination of flavors here are fantastic! I used a fork to strain the water out of the horseradish and I eyeballed the mayo - definitely didn't use the full amount because it just doesn't need it. I would love to add some kind of crunch... trying to decide what without altering the perfect flavor... This is a new craving!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
As big salad eaters, this is a really nice change of pace. The apple and pear kind of worried me, but they work! Used toasted almond slivers and left out the cheese. The first time I used mandarin oranges and did not care for the juiciness. Added thinly sliced red onion. Cut sugar in half. Dressing tastes very oily but works well in the salad. Will definitely be added to our salad rotation!
