Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Terrific! I used the 'ingredients search' to use up what was in my fridge before leaving on vacation and found this recipe. Added some carrots, used canned pinto beans and added a splash of white wine to the broth. Added the celery later to preserve crunch. Overall a very satisfying winter meal in a bowl. Froze two meals for later. Will make again.

Mayan Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Delicious! I followed the recipe except I substituted quinoa for the couscous and replaced the corn (didn't have any) with sliced black olives, which went nicely. I did slightly cook the onions and added a handful of sliced green onion tops. As suggested elsewhere, I squeezed every last drop out of 2 limes. Good both warm and chilled. A hit with the hubby, who is a traditionalist. Filling and satisfying, I will be making this again.

Hearty Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I had to substitute some things and leave out others because I did not have them. However, the dressing is very tasty as written. One thing I did learn: cool the rice before mixing. It melted my cheese cubes. Oops! I will make again, but I'll be more patient next time.

Zucchini Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
This was a tasty salad that is a twist on coleslaw. I didn't have radishes and I added a squeeze of lime over my serving. My husband liked the combination of vegetables, which lessened the intensity of an all cabbage slaw. We served it with fish tacos, with which it went quite well.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Quite tasty way to use up leftover chicken. Easy ingredients. Whole family of adults enjoyed it. Put in just a touch of hot sauce to add a bit of zing. Flavor develops over time. Will do again.

Microwave Spiced Nuts

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Oh, yum! Made these out of toasted pecans and walnuts using Brown Sugar Splenda blend before I went on a girl's weekend. They were a hit and we couldn't stop eating them. I did add a generous dash of cayenne, and that was a good addition. I especially appreciated a 'no salt added' option for fancy nuts. Would make a great gift. If they are in your kitchen, you will just keep eating them!

BDukes Lima Beans, Cabbage and Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Very tasty pot of beans. My limas turned to mush, however. Next time, I won't just set the timer for 90 min. and not check them. I am sure 60 min. would have left some texture. I used bacon instead of ham hock and added mustard greens instead of cabbage, because that's what I had. Will make again. Love a good bean recipe.
