Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This is incredible, mostly because of the dressing. It is nutty and rich from the toasted sesame seeds, sweet with the sugar, and just the right amount of balanced tang with the vinegars. I made in a small tupperware container, so I could keep shaking throughout the night for my dinner party of 4. I didn't have cranberries (oops), so I used chopped up dried apricots, which worked quite nicely. Thanks for this awesome and relatively cheap alternative to store bought dressings!

General Tsao's Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This was awesome. My first attempt at Chinese cooking, and I'm super happy with how it came out. I did double the sauce, as other reviewers recommended. I found it to be a good amount of sauce, however because the sauce is so tangy and sweet, a little goes a long way. I also used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cause it's how I roll. This was great and addictive- three of us ate the entire pan! Yikes! Also- I didn't find it to be hot at all, but perhaps I used the wrong peppers (they were large dried red chiles, not the small ones used in a lot of Chinese cooking). Thanks for the recipe!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Perfect as is! So refreshing and light, yet completely sinfully satisfying. Great with a chicken entree.

Zucchini Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
This was great! The only change I made was that I used half mild cheddar and half mozzarella for the cheese cause I forgot to buy Swiss. It was very, very tasty, but I think I needed to add a little more salt. I always under-salt the first time I make a recipe, but I think this recipe needs that amount of salt because the zucchini, etc, is so mild. This was really great with mashed potatoes and dijon-brown sugar glazed carrots. Thanks so much!!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
This was very, very good. I put more cheese in, but that's kinda what I always do :) This was really hearty, well-balanced, rich, mushroomy and went beautifully with steak tips. My favorite mushroom risotto has some porcini in it as well, and I think that would be a nice touch here, sauteed with the shallots.

Crab Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
DELICIOUS! So delicate, creamy, and rich but not TOO rich. Definitely use good quality crab meat for this recipe- it's the star of the dish and it deserves to have some fresh, real crabmeat in it.

Easy Curry Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This was a really delicious and moist cous-cous. I would have given it 5 stars, but for the salt. I used reduced sodium broth (although not LOW sodium) and the 2 teaspoons of salt as called for and it was markedly too salty. If you don't like salty food, please omit both teaspoons for this recipe. You can add it but you can't take it away.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This is a yummy recipe, and relatively light, compared to many other risotto recipes (for example, the one I usually use from America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook). The texture is really excellent. It's not QUITE as tasty as the one I usually make, so I took one star off. Also, you should REALLY like sundried tomatoes to make this- they are quite strong and the aftertaste can be a bit much for an otherwise mild dish.
