Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was really good and fairly easy. I added a lot more spices than the recipe called for - allspice, a little cinnamon, chili powder, and a bit of basil. I also just mixed some ricotta, mozzarella, and cream to make the creamy top layer. We loved it and the leftovers are great!

Mashed Jalapeno-Cilantro Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
My fiance and I really don't like sweet potatoes but got a bunch in our CSA box. We love spicy food so I gave this recipe a shot. The only thing I changed was that I used my food processer to mix it instead of a hand mixer. It was amazing! Very rich, complex flavor!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Wow this is great! I took another reviewer's advice and substituted some brown sugar for some of the white sugar. I also added a grated apple. It was really fluffy and good!

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
This is a nice, basic recipe for squash soup. It seemed a bit flat to me though, so I added a roasted clove of garlic, some allspice, a bit of chili powder, and a healthy splash of sauvignon blanc. I also took others' suggestions and cut the brown sugar way down. I let it simmer for quite a while and really liked it!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Well maybe I did something wrong but I really didn't like how these came out. The spices tasted nice (I did chili powder, garlic powder, a tiny bit of cinnamon, and salt) but they came out chewy. The insides were nice and soft but the outsides and especially the skins were tough and chewy.

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Very easy and came out great! I did cook the mushrooms for a few minutes first in a bit of garlic and white onion. I made it on a Sunday evening and packaged up pieces for quick breakfasts all week!

Tangy Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I steamed the cabbage for 1-2 minutes to soften it up, which I liked. I also added a bit of sesame oil as someone else suggested but didn't like that flavor; I'll skip it next time. This was a nice way to use red cabbage, and it tasted even better after sitting in the fridge for two days!

Sweet and Sour Pork II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Very easy and came out great! My fiance couldn't stop telling me that it tasted "just like Chinese food!" I think he means the kind that gets delivered in a box. And I think it's a compliment!

Teriyaki Marinade with Ginger and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Very good and easy marinade. I did it for tofu, which I cut in big squares and then grilled. They were great! Next time I may shred the ginger to try and get more of the flavor out of it.

Barbequed Chicken with Citrus Yogurt Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I didn't carefully measure the lemon and orange zest, so maybe I just used too much. Or, maybe I let it marinate a bit too long - almost 48 hours because we unexpectedly couldn't cook it when we planned to. Whatever it was, my fiance said the chicken had a nice flavor but the outide and the marinade had too strong of a citrus flavor.

Chili-Roasted Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Wow! This was so so good! I had no idea what to do with the kale in my green grocer box last week. I didn't want to make a soup or stew, which seem to be the most common recipes using kale. I was careful to very lightly but evenly coat the pieces in olive oil. It was so good, I'd buy kale at the store just to make it again!

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I found this salad to be a tiny bit plain - as if it needed some salt or other flavoring. I had to give it 5 stars though because my fiance loved it so much! He asked me to make it again soon and to make it for the next family picnic. I did use fresh corn cut off the cob and sauteed breifly with salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic powder. A nice addition is some crumbled goat cheese. Feta would probably be good too.

Grilled Honey-Soy Pork Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Very nice and different way to prepare "naked" pork chops. Marinating them in the plastic bag worked really well.

Citrus Swordfish With Citrus Salsa

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This was so good - summery but with lots of great bold flavors. I baked the fish instead of grilling because we sadly live in an apt with no patio. It does take a long time to chop up all the stuff for the salsa but the preparation is actually very easy and the result is impressive!

Hot Bacon Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Lovely early summer salad. I used romaine and it held up really well to the warm dressing. I also made this with vegetarian bacon because, well, I'm a vegetarian - and it was awesome!
