Broccoli and Tofu Stir Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
This was a nice, simple stir fry. It lacked a little in flavor of the sauce, so I added a bit of szechuan to taste. The tofu took on the flavor quite nicely. Served on top of white rice.

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
Not bad...A little odd at first, but the more I drank, the more I wanted it.

Creamy Pork with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
It was ok. The sauce was very reminiscent of stroganoff. Would have been nice with sauteed onions. Went well with egg noodles. I didn't think the meal was spectacular, but not bad.

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
Ehh, it was okay. I love feta and the combo was pretty good with the pork chop, but I wasn't blown away. It will be one of those "if that's all you have left in the refrigerator" recipies for me.

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
I didn't grill, but pan-sauteed. Mistake. Weird flavor and too strong. If I make it again, I will grill and use less dijon (maybe none, the flavor stood out too much for me) and less lemon juice.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
I enjoyed these as a main meatless course. I used jarred roasted red and yellow peppers and a little sauteed onion in place of the onion powder. I don't have a grill, so I followed suggestions and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. I melted a slice of provolone on top of each cap right at the end of cooking time. That made them better, maybe 4 star.

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
Acorn squash is very difficult to cut! A lot of trouble for a decent recipe. It was pretty good.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Simple and delicious. Used ciabatta bread instead of foccacia. A very easy recipe to customize and make to your liking. I fed it to my veggie wary boyfriend, and now he always requests me to make it!

Cool Summer Cucumber and Tomato Toss

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
My husband liked this better than the other cucumber recipe I use, but I like my other better. This one was good, I just prefer the creamy cucumber salad to the vinegary one.

Grilled Cheese with Tomato, Peppers and Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
It was pretty good. Seed the serranos if you don't want all the spice. I left mine in because I really enjoy spicy food.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
meh, it's definitely 3 star. I have had much better banana bread in the past. Moist enough but flavorless, even after adding cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Made 6 large muffins and baked for 30 min. I'm still looking...

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Oh, so good. I love bread pudding and this was a perfect recipe to satisfy my craving. Used cinnamon raisin bread and skipped the raisins. Used a rum sauce recipe I found on the site...delicious!

Fiance's Favorite Savory Green Beans

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
I dont think the flavor of these beans is enough to warrant all the extra fat added to them. They were pretty good, but I think I'll opt for healthier next time.

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Kind of bland, even with the soy sauce. Will probably use a recipe with cheese next time.

Cuban Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Exactly what I craved. Excellent! I love the tangy taste. Used golden and regular raisins, did not have sherry, so I used white wine, served on top of red potatoes...YUM! Thanks for the recipe!
