Garlic Dill New Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Great recipe! Used olive oil instead of butter and it was delicious. Garlic and dill are two of my favorite things, so it's hard to go wrong here.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This recipe is really delicious and flexible. I usually add a lot more veggies than it calls for--red pepper, zucchini, carrots. It always comes out great and tasting exactly like lasagna should taste.

Honey Soy Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This was a really great recipe. Neither my husband or I are crazy about fish but we eat it for the health benefits. We always have to find sauces/marinades that mask the fishiness. This marinade did the trick. I used some fancy fig flavored balsamic, and the combination of flavors was really really good.

Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
What a great, gourmet-tasting recipe! I added some garlic and italian seasoning to the marinade and also used some fancy fig flavored balsamic instead of regular. I threw the chicken in a dish with the marinade and baked it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes as another reviewer suggested. It came out so great! The marinade caramelized nicely, and the tomato, mozzarella and basil really complimented all of the flavors.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This was an excellent recipe with a few modifications. I used dried beans instead of canned, tripled the garlic and added salt, chili powder, cholula, cumin and turmeric. I also threw in some chorizo, though it would have been just as good without it. We ate it with both cornbread and fried plantain, and it was delicious.

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
I love this recipe. The flavor of the vinaigrette balances the kale perfectly. It is also easy to modify the recipe and just use whatever veggies I have around. It is always delicious no matter what I use. Super healthy and surprisingly filling as well. Thanks!

Homemade Tomato Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
Delicious sauce and very easy. I was surprised to find it had a lot of flavor. I used olive oil instead of vegetable, but followed the recipe exactly otherwise.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
This is an excellent recipe! I can't eat gluten, so I can't eat most meatloaf because of the breadcrumbs, but I actually like it much better with the quinoa. It stays much moister than most meatloaf. Only change is to add 2 eggs, as other reviewers suggested.

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
This is a great recipe! I've made it twice now, and it is always so easy and delicious. The only difference is that I use boneless, skinless chicken breast instead of bone-in because it's easier.

Cilantro, Avocado, Tomato, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This is one of my favorite recipes. It is so refreshing in the summer. I have also taken it to multiple dinner parties and it always gets rave reviews. Just make sure not to mix it too much so it doesn't get too mushy.

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This is one of my staples. I always add a lot of cumin, turmeric and curry to give it more flavor and use fresh spinach that I throw in at the end to wilt it. Very hearty and healthy!

Quinoa Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This has become one of my staples. So hearty and healthy. It is great in summer or winter. It's great with sour cream and a little cheese on top. I follow the recipe exactly and it turns out great every time. Thanks for the great recipe!

I loved this soup. Very flavorful and the meatballs turned out great (I've always had trouble with them in the past). Thanks for the great recipe!

Roasted Yam and Kale Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Delicious salad. Great way to combine two super foods and the sweetness of the yams really provides nice balance to the kale flavor. Everyone that tried it loved it. Thanks for the great recipe!

Creamy Beet With Dill Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I think this is one of my favorite recipes of all time. The caraway seeds are the key I think. I left out the sugar since beets are so sweet already and used 2% milk, and it was perfect. My parents also raved about it....more than once after I gave them some.

Chicken, Mushroom, and Polenta Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
This is an excellent twist on lasagna. The flavors are so much more exciting. The pesto is a great addition, and I was afraid the polenta would get too mushy, but I ended up actually liking it better than noodle texture. I used a spaghetti sauce in a jar instead of making my own to save time and used regular mushrooms and onions. I also threw in some carrots, zucchini and red pepper that I needed to use up. My only complaint is that frying the polenta is both time consuming and painful (oil gets very splashy). Not really sure how to fix that, but might try baking next time...

Fresh Beet Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Really great recipe. I made it without the bacon to make it healthier and because I'm not a huge bacon fan, and it was still incredibly flavorful. Great combination of flavors and makes a great side.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Fabulous recipe and so easy! The cumin and oregano give it a nice added bit of flavor. I like to add just a little bit of sugar to balance out the acid and tangy taste of the tomatillos and also omitted the water since the cooked tomatillos provide enough of their own juice. Other than that, this is by far the best green salsa recipe I've found.

Mendocino Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This is a really great recipe. I buy chicken breasts and cook them myself instead of buying the pre-cooked stuff and cut down on the mayonnaise since I don't like a lot of mayo. I also add a bit of dijon mustard to give it some extra flavor. The grapes and almonds really make this awesome though.

Savory Swiss Chard with Portobellos

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This is really amazing. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Perfect combination of flavors. It was a hit with everyone.
