Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
This is a perfect pancake recipe! I made it exactly as-is, and added blueberries, and got rave reviews from my boyfriend and his 5-year-old niece. Update: my fiance discovered a gluten allergy, so I made this recipe again with all-purpose gluten-free flour substituted for the regular flour. I also left out the sugar since we are trying to be more careful about our sugar intake. Again, these were perfect! Super fluffy and delicious (note: the batter tastes weird and sour, but cooked they are perfectly balanced and very tasty). I added blueberries to half, and bananas & pecans to the other half. The quantity came out to about four servings, so we stuffed ourselves this morning, and have another full serving for each of us in the fridge for this weekend.

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This is a great stir fry recipe! I made it for me & my boyfriend last night, and we both loved it. It tasted like real Chinese take-out, only healthier and none of the chicken was sketchy. I followed this recipe pretty much exactly, with only a few small changes: used sesame oil instead of peanut oil, added about half the onion, subbed broccoli for the cabbage, added sliced carrots, and only used 1 Tbsp of sugar in the sauce. It came out perfect - the sauce was delicious, and there was just the right amount of it. Served over brown rice. I will make this again and again, trying different veggies and maybe even pork or tofu sometime.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Wow, real hummus is amazing!! I followed the recipe before reading the reviews, and it came out perfectly. I used a 15 oz can of garbanzo beans (because that was the only size I saw), 2 Tbsp tahini, 1 tsp salt, juice of one lemon, 2 cloves of garlic, and about half of the liquid from the can of beans. I haven't garnished it yet, but it tastes delicious - the best hummus I've ever tried! If I do say so myself :-)

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
I read some of the other reviews and incorporated various ideas, and whatever I did came out amazing! My boyfriend kept saying "wow" as he was eating it. Now that I've tried it out on us, it would be a great recipe for a dinner party. Here's what I did: Made double the marinade, using fresh ginger and garlic (and I only did 2 chicken breasts; so if I were doing the full 4, I would quadruple the marinade) . Marinated the chicken first, in one bag, for 2 hours . Marinated fresh pineapple with red peppers, green peppers & purple onions in a separate bag, for 1-2 hours . Threaded chicken and pineapple/veggies on separate kabobs . Put the chicken on the grill, turning every 5 minutes, for a total of about 20 minutes. Put the pineapple/veggies on the grill for the last 10 minutes, turning once halfway through. Meanwhile, heated the marinade from the pineapple/veggies over the stove with a little cornstarch to thicken it. Served over coconut rice (2 cups jasmine ride, 1 cup coconut milk, 2 cups water, 1/2 tsp salt & 2 Tbsp shredded coconut in rice cooker on regular setting), with the thickened marinade drizzled over the top. AMAZING!!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
We absolutely loved it! My fiancé said it was the best salmon he'd ever had, and went back for seconds. He ate so much salmon that he didn't have room for ice cream, which is a first! This will become a staple in our house, since it was not only delicious but was so easy to prepare. I actually added salt & pepper to the bread crumb mixture, which worked well. The honey mustard sauce has a nice tang (I only spread a thin layer on the top so it wasn't overpowering), and the bread crumbs gave the fish a good crunch. The pecans were an interesting addition (and one I never would have thought of; might also try with almonds or macadamia nuts sometime), and the fresh parsley was great (although in a pinch, dried parsley would probably work too). I served it with wild rice and oven-roasted asparagus, and voilá - a gourmet meal on a Tuesday night!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Delicious! The lemon juice and parmesan cheese give a nice twist on a simple way to prepare asparagus. I added the salt by eye, since some reviewers commented on the recipe being too salty. I also baked them at 400 degrees, since I put them in with some salmon, and found that 12 minutes was just about perfect.
