Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Terrific; great combination of flavors and textures. I generally don't toss my salads with dressing, rather let people dress according to their preference. Everyone at my table enjoyed it. I roasted the cashews with melted butter... yummy!

Quinoa-Cranberry Salad with Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Great side salad for Thanksgiving; I added 1/2 orange worth of fresh zest and served at room temperature... toasted the pecans with a bit of butter in oven for 10 minutes or so then let cool before chopping...

Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Whole family loved! -- Cooked the spam really well as the texture is too mushy unless made near-crunchy, and had to eliminate the chinese sausage as the local chinese market was out that day. still wonderful -- the measures for garlic powder? had to wing it and it was great!

Asparagus with Brie

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
easy, fancy, delicious. while asparagus is a great stand-alone this offered a dressed-up alternative. keep the main dish simple, though. This dish was rich enough on its own.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Terrific -- was looking to replicate a similar dish (warm)at Macaroni Grill -- this was close, and yet unique. Next time less onions

Grilled Hawaiian Chicken and Pineapple Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Just got back from spring break in Maui when I made this recipe... had enjoyed a similar sandwich at the 5 Palms in Kihei a few days earlier... and this sandwich was better! The marinade is wonderful, used it on it's own for a chicken main dish

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Really!?! I used a roast chicken v. canned, and a cream of chicken soup uncondensed v. one of the broths. Put home made corn tortilla chips on the bottom of the bowls and then garnished with cheese. Almost too easy; and terrific! I will guiltily make this again and again... good enough for company!

Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Delicious! and versatile -- would have been a 5 if the recipe indicated to let it sit a bit before serving -- it was somewhat watery when I served it, but thickened well after the heat was turned off

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Pros: super easy and have all the ingredients! For me, the cons were: very dense, and with soup didn't add the "crumble, soak" factor of a traditional cornbread. And, very sweet -- my daughter liked them a lot!

Pork in Olive Oil Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
using suggestions from this site -- cooked til near done and made the sauce a reduction with which I then tossed the pork til it was finished. As my husband despises cilantro I instead put half the amount in the reduction to cook down, and sprinkled the pork at midpoint with the garlic, 3/4 tsp fresh ground coriander, and a tsp of parsley. He ate it all, and I still got the cilantro that I love.... served it with cous cous flavored with olive oil infused with lime.

Butter Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Quick and easy, liked by all family members.... cooked a whole chicken and basted throughout. will add more cayenne as suggested by another cook -- it made the skin tasty and crispy and the chicken was moist.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
rich and delicious, but the bottom crust didn't get well cooked, and it does have a different texture than a "regular" quiche, and so might be off-putting for the quiche purist.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
so, these are perfect. great alternative to a meat quesadilla; the sweet / savor combo is wonderful as a side dish for a meal. I Took this to a barbeque with salsa and guac on the side, even cold they went over well. all gone!

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
New family favorite, definitely going into the repetoire. almost embarrassingly easy (so you can wow your guests / friends without killing yourself) and easily modifiable by using chicken instead of pork. Used marsala cooking wine; daughter and husband both had seconds -- recommend doubling if you have a family of 4 with big appetites.
