Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
Very good, but I don't find canned salmon appealing with all the small bones (which the can says are edible). You can buy boneless canned but it is expensive. Next time I may buy frozen fillets.

Lemon Chicken with Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
i expected more sauce in a recipe like this and it doesn't make much. Pretty good and halthy enough but not sure if I'll make again.

Cashew Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Not as good as I had hoped. I did use raw cashews and organic unsweetened coconut.

Baja Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Definately will make again. Very easy and a bit healthier than standard tacos. I used a bag of coleslaw (no dressing) as the cabbage.

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I used Itialian sweet sausage for a little more flavor. I also used pre cut squash. I roasted garlic with the squash and onion rather than adding raw garlic at the end. Some in my family don't like balsamic so I left it out. I topped with freshly grated parmesan. I didn't bother to put the pasta in the skillet; I just added the squash mixture to the pasta in the serving dish. Don't "cube" squash too small and don't overcook. I doubled the recipe and will make again. A meal in itself!

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Clever idea for a meal in itself. I feared dryness based on some reviews so i added some leftover spaghetti sauce I had on hand. (was a good idea as it turned out). I also added mushrooms

Broccoli Cheese Soup VI

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
We loved the taste and it's so easy. It was a little watery- I might add less water next time. I doubled the cheese, added a little more onion. Also, I added a couple of drops of Tabasco.

Pork with Roasted Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I had high hopes for this, but the potatoes took forever to soften, and then the meat became tough. My family was not very happy.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Everyone loved this pie. I made it for Thanksgiving with frozen fruit, since peaches and raspberries are out of season here. Instead of making vents, I used a cookie cutter to cut out a shape (I used a star) in the center of the top crust before placing it on the pie. I thawed the raspberries in a colander for 1/2 hour as the package recommended. The peaches did not need to per thawed per package instructions. I had no problems with a runny pie at all. I baked it on the lowest rack, on a preheated cookie sheet, as America's Test Kitchens recommends.

Gnocchi and Sausage Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
For ease of preparation and a comfort food feel while using just a few ingredients, I'm giving it 5 stars. I found a whole wheat gnocchi with sweet potato from Italy in my supermarket. In the casserole it tasted just like the standard gnocchi made with white potatoes. Great for an easy weekday meal and I served with salad.

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This was blissfully easy and the potatoes were perfect. My family liked it, but surprisingly I found it a bit bland. It could be the Italian Dressing I used that doesn't have a lot of pizzazz. I thought the 1 tbsp of seasoning was going to be enough. I will try a livlier dressing next time

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I thought this was really good and healthy too. My husband liked it a lot; my young adult daughter not as much. I had no problems with the liquid drying out and it was great over couscous. I don't understand the "blandness" problems - it calls for cayenne pepper, coriander and garlic. You could up the cayenne pepper if you desire.

Horseradish and Yogurt Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
Very easy and the salmon was quite moist. I did have to cook a bit longer than stated though. No one else in the family seemed impressed though (sigh) so I am not sure I will make again.

Chicken Pesto a la Lisa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
My husband thought this was great; the rest of us thought only "good". The chicken broth seemed to overpower the dish and I couldn't taste the feta . I liked the ease of preparation and cooking method though. I did leave out the pine nuts to spare both the expense and the time to toast them. I think I would try adding next time. I might replace some of the chicken broth with white wine.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
We really liked this and it was easy. I scaled the recipe up for my family. Some may prefer a little more parmesan or spinach. I really recommend this for a beginning cook. It's so easy and it looks like it was more work; close to "restaurant quality" too

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Loved this! Next time I plan to double the recipe and use a larger pan. In this case I will bake the tofu slices in the oven as I would have otherwise to do multiple bathches in a skillet.

Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This was very good. Next time I may add some mushrooms. Maybe reduce the cream cheese and add more milk. I didn't find it dry. I wonder if the people who said so had not covered it.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
The taste is 5 stars but I am a little on the fence with that because I had to add a lot more cracker crumbs for these to hold a shape. These are the best salmon patties I've ever made. My family said they taste like crab cakes from a high end restaurant. I used boneless and skinless canned salmon. I needed a second skillet as I couldn't fit 6 in one.

Spaghetti Sauce with Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
This was very difficult to rate. For creativity, definitely 5 stars. We all liked it and it is healthy too. But I don't think you can confuse it with a meat sauce. One reviewer suggested adding tomato paste and more seasoning. I would agree with that. Only giving 3 stars but maybe it should be 3.5 or 3.75. I would make it again.
