Scallops and Asparagus Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Very nice recipe, but I think ginger is a must, as is more garlic. I also added some sesame seeds. Next time I will just top it with tomatoes which turned into a tomato sauce while heating through.

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
This is the first recipe I've used to make my own protein bars. I used 1 package (35g) of vanilla and 1 package of chocolate protein by Vega Sport, Naturally More Peanut Butter which is great as it already contains flax seed, honey and egg white, added some chopped walnuts, dried cranberries and other fruit and nuts from trailmix. I also added a bit more honey and heated it a bit with peanut butter to make it more liquid and easier to mix with dry ingredients. The bars turned out great (chewy!), I can't wait to take them on my next hike!

Spinach Salad with Peaches and Pecans

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
After reading reviews I have changed a few things in the recipe and loved the result! I made it with mango, added feta, grilled chicken breast and finely chopped red onion. Also, I am not a great fan of dressings, so I just used some fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. Great dinner.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Maybe it is because I seldom use butter, and do not use much sugar, but for me the cobbler was all about these two ingredients (and I already cut them down). It turned out fine (wasn't soggy), but was greasy and lacked in flavor. I ended up picking the strawberries and eating them with yogurt. I only give it two stars because I spent no more than 10 minutes in the kitchen.

Carrot and Coriander Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
As other reviewers, I was a bit concerned if I can get a really good soup using only these four ingredients. But it turned out great! The only changes I made was using three more carrots (because I like more creamy soups), chicken broth and adding some ground turmeric and dash of red pepper (I like them spicy too) to the pureed soup. Some fresh lemon juice also gives it a nice twist.

Thai-Style Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I have tilapia for dinner very often, have tried several different recipes and while all of them are really good, this one is amazing!!! I didn't have turmeric, but the flavor was authentic without it, and instead of simmering the fish on the skillet, I baked it (375F, for the first 5-7 minutes just fillets seasoned with kosher salt and pepper, then I added the sauce and baked for another 13-15 minutes). Definitely getting some more tilapia tomorrow for my next dinners this week!
