Kale Tabbouleh with Quinoa

Reviewed: May 6, 2015
Doubled the quinoa. I also added some vinegar to give this some pizzazz.

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2015
I was not able to find arborio rice, but found a Morelos rice in the Hispanic aisle that looked similiar to arborio. I did have some issues with this, but I don't think it was related to the rice. The risotto was a little undercooked despite using about 1 and 3/4 boxes of stock, but it was getting so late that I served it as it was. With all that cheese, I was hesitant to use sun dried tomatoes in oil, but I did use the tomatos packaged in a pouch without oil. This recipe really made a ton, and I'm thinking we will be eating this all week. I would definitely cut this in half unless you are serving a crowd. Good flavor.

Seared Salmon with Indian-Inspired Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2015
I expected to love this, however the sauce was extremely thin. I would start with a half cup of broth and add more only if necessary. If you served this with rice to soak up the liquid, you would still have leftovers if you followed the directions. I used fennel seed in place of the bulb.

Simple Slow Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2014
After 5 hrs, the chicken was barely done. I then increased the oven temp until the chicken was nicely browned, but did not notice much flavor.

Restaurant-Style Santa Fe Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
Very dry, I'm thinking the addition of a pint of halfed cherry tomatoes may help. I used 2 small chicken breasts, but thought it needed more chicken.

The Talk of the Potluck Kale and Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
This was way to salty! I would eliminate the salt and salt at the table if necessary. For my taste, I would prefer nuts to the sunflower seeds. I love craisins and gorgonzola but I still thought this needed some additional seasoning, maybe rosemary?

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
This was very good, however I would have preferred a smaller, softer bean. The chickpea was so much different in texture than the quinoa, it detracted from rather than enhancing the dish

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
Just okay, a little too rich for my taste. There is enought filling for twice the reccommended amount of mushrooms.

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
I'm not a fan of kielbasa, however this was pretty good. The horseradish saved this from being cloyingly sweet. I think you could easily make this in a saucepan on the stove.

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
Lots of chopping but a very flavorful and colorful vegetable dish. My husband would have preferred if I had peeled the eggplant, but I did not find the skin offensive in the least. We ate this without rice or couscous

Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
As an empty nester, I no longer do much baking. My husband is not big on sweets, and that leaves only me to eat what I cook. This was perfect, less to eat, and between the blueberries and the loaf not being overly sweet, I am getting some help. I did sub fat free yogurt for the sour cream to reduce the fat content. I used the topping as a frosting, only because I didn't read the directions far enough to realize I was supposed to use the frosting as soon as the loaf came out of the oven. This probably could have used a little more lemon flavor, I had only one small lemon on hand. Even so, it rates 5 stars with me.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I did not allow the butter to soften (the KitchenAide can handle that chore), and still this frosting was the opposite of stiff with a beautiful creamy texture. I just didn't think it had enough peanut butter flavor. Less butter and more peanut butter may solve that issue, but I also thought the frosting needed a dash of vanilla.

Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
I probably won't make this oftn, but I did enjoy it. I will try substituting almonds for the cashews and reducing the oil in the dressing.

Cinnamon Candy Apple Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
More like dessert than salad - could make for an interesting pretzel "salad".

Jerk-Spiced Beef Sirloin

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
Good flavor but could have used a little more heat. I cut this in half because it made a lot of marinade. If I were to make this again, I would reduce the oil to 2 tablespoons.

Quinoa Salad with Mint, Almonds and Cranberries

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
This was very different and unusual. Both my husband and I enjoyed it but we weren't sure if it was a salad or main dish, or if it should be eaten hot or cold. We ate this for dinner one night and used the remainder as a side dish the following night. I thought it tasted the best when eaten at room temperature. Don't skip the lemon zest, the zest seemed to unify all the other ingredients,

Barley Lime Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
This recipe makes a ton, so either take this to a picnic or be prepared to eat this all week. Actually, this does make a nice, hearty, filling lunch. I think the amount of barley could be cut in half, allowing the veggies to take center stage. The seasoning was pretty subtle when diluted with all that barley. I did sub honey for corn syrup as suggested by other reviewers.

Chocolate Marquise

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This was very rich and decadent, so I will not be making this often. The flavor was excellent and I did not think the coffee flavor was too much, even though I used espresso powder! I did have some problems with the directions. I could not get the butter and cocoa powder to combine, and wondered if the directions should have read to combine the butter with the sugar. Despite the wonderful taste, the finished product had small lumps of butter that I could not beat in, and the sugar never dissolved, leaving a grainy texture to the dessert.
