Lemon Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
great, fool-proof pie. Made it for my Mom when she came to visit, & we all enjoyed it! Used real lemons, added lemon zest & yellow food coloring. I will make it again with real whipping cream (read 'The Omnivores Dilemma' for my reasoning :)

Squash with Tomato and Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Yummy as a main dish! I substituted butternut squash, and didn't use peppercorns or green pepper ( think we might have also used yellow onions instead of green)... still tasted amazing-- as the look/consistency of a quiche. Would also would work great as a breakfast dish (We had it as leftovers the next morning.. our holiday guests loved it!) I am cooking it again tonight & will try it with the ingredients listed... I'm looking forward to it!

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
EXCELLENT! added a yellow & an orange bell pepper for a little more zip. Extra olives & cucumber were good too (one can never have too many). Would be perfect for a potluck- colorful & presents well. I bet it will be even better leftover tomorrow!

Potato Croquettes

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Did not work for me this time around- made a soggy mess in the pan (ok, so maybe one or two sorta came out ok). Used fresh, homemade mashed potatoes & breadcrumbs... maybe too much butter in potatoes or fry-oil in pan? Froze the remainder to again try later. I also think I made the patties too big... clarification would be nice. Reviewers who liked this recipe seem to have made much smaller ones (read: 1 inch diameter). I give 3 stars bc I'm sure if my skills were up to par it would've been much better.

Pico de Gallo

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
amazingly yummy & authentic. I didn't really measure my ingredients, and probably ended up with a higher percentage of cilantro, garlic, chili pepper (i used a cerrano pepper), and lime...but it worked. well. only drawback: I don't think I'm going to be able to wait 3 hrs to eat it!

Baked Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
yummy! Caveat: I did modify it. I used fresh green beans, blanched for 5 min as another reviewer suggested (boil 5 min, ice 5 min). In place of bread crumbs I used cheese-garlic croutons (whole), and used shredded mexican blend cheese (at least a half a cup- the more the better, I always say!) in place of parm. I'm sure parm would be good too, but my hubby doesnt like it. I also added some fancy organic bacon bits for good measure. This recipe went great with loaded baked potatoes and glazed carrots. Who needs a "main course?" ;)

Honey-Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
disclaimer: I only had a few carrots so my measurements were probably off. This recipe was verrrrry sweet- a bit too sweet, (and I have quite the sweet tooth!). Carrots are sweet on their own, so don't make my mistake of using generous measurements. Probably a great way to fool kids into eating carrots though! I used regular sized fresh carrots, quartered, but that shouldn't make a difference. Great simple way to dress up carrots though. Needs to be served with the right dish... maybe pork chops & applesauce?

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
is a bit drier than traditional cornbread, but that can be remedied by melting butter on top! deliciouso!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
amazing. This time I had to make it gluten free, so I made an all-purpose flour using 3 parts rice flour, 3 parts cornstarch, 1 part garbanzo flour, 1 part amaranth, and 1 part masa harina. It was also suggested to me to sub green tomatoes for the zucchini (which we have a LOT of, since it is the end of the season), and it was AWESOME! Of course, this recipe is amazing the original way too, and I have used as much as 4.5 cups of zucchini (I had a HUGE one!), and it still works great... really moist & yummy. you MUST try it!

Sweet and Silky Strawberry Sorbet

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
I served this to a dinner party, and was told by people that this was the best sorbet they had ever had! excellent, & easy to boot! note: I didnt use the food processor- I used frozen strawberrys, heated them up, added sugar, & used a pastry blender to mash them up before adding other stuff. awesome!

Roasted Kohlrabi

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Excellent just as it is... I was going to modify this recipe like I usually do, but my mom convinced me to cook it exactly as directed. We used the convection setting on the oven which made them slightly browned and crispy..if there were picky eaters or kids around I think I could have passed this off as a savory potato dish! Buenissimo!

Easy Bok Choy

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Yummy and oh so easy. The only thing I would add to the instructions is to cook the stems first, then add the leaves a few minutes later. That way, the stems aren't over-cooking while you are waiting for the stems to get cooked.
