Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly, except I baked these at 450 degrees for 10 minutes instead of frying, and skipped the freezing part. I also halved the cheese. At others' suggestion, I served this with "Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce" from this site. These were excellent and healthier than the original recipe. Very yummy!! Next time, I plan to add avocado to the rolls right before rolling. I think they'll be even better. :)

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
A very good Enchilada sauce. I used less water and more tomato sauce.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I scaled the recipe to 12 servings and increased the pumpkin puree and spices a little. I baked this in a 9-inch springform pan with a homemade crust. I used a water bath and added white chocolate curls to the top after it cooled a bit. It looked and tasted great! Everyone gave rave reviews and couldn't beieve it was homemade. For my crust: Combine 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup confectioners sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in 1/4 cup melted butter and mix well. Press into bottom of springform pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 before adding filling to pan.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I brought this cake into work and it got excellent reviews. I chopped up all the remaining cherries and added them to the pan with the crushed pineapple. The only thing I will do differently next time is double the amount of crushed pineapple that goes between the layers. More is always better.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
These are the best brownies!! I made some modifications after reading prevous reviews: I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar and cut out 2 tbsp of the butter. I also added 1 cup of nuts and 1 cup of chocolate chips. This is now the only brownie recipe I will use. They are delicious!

Thai Steamed Mussels

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I halved this recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. My only complaint is that there was not enough heat. I'll add dried thai chilis next time. The sauce is so incredibly delicious. Be sure you have some crusty Italian bread to sop it up with!!!

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This is an excellent vegetarian/vegan dish! Very flavorful. I used 1 1/2 cups of portabella mushrooms, added 1/4 water to the vegetable pan before covering, and increased the cayenne pepper just a bit, which gave this a nice kick. Some fresh spinach added into the vegatable pan in the last 5 minutes would also be great! I'll be making this again for sure.

Shrimp and Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I used 4 tablespoons of lime juice, added 2 cloves of garlic in the saute, used red bell pepper instead of green, used 1 cup of chopped fresh green beans instead of asparagus, omitted the raisins and 2Tbsp oil for the quinoa, and doubled the mushrooms, red pepper, and parsley. It's quite a few variations, but the result was very flavorful and quite healthy! I will certainly make this again, perhaps even with a few more veggies included.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I reduced the butter to 3 tablespoons and added a teaspoon of dried rosemary (yum!). I also cut the salt in half. These were tasty!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I omitted the salt and sesame oil and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I also peel, diced, and boiled the sweet taters until tender rather than baking them. This is very flavorful and has a nice spicy kick (depending on the heat of your curry paste). I'll definitely make this one again.

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I must say that the aroma was absolutely heavenly as this was cooking! My modifications: I cut the oil in half, I added the peppers in with the onions/garlic/sweet taters in the beginning, used a full can of garbanzo beans, cut the salt in half, and added an extra cup of broth (beef instead of chicken because it's what I had on hand). This is a very flavorful soup, and the spice combination is unique for a vegetable soup. Very delicious and I will make again, even in the dead heat of summer.

Shrimp Provencal

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This is a very healthy and flavorful recipe. I love it. I wanted to serve it over rice and needed more juice, so I doubled the wine, tomatoes, tomato paste, fennel, and thyme. I also omitted 1Tb of the oil. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and it was so delicious!

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This was excellent. I made only slight alterations to the recipes. I injected garlic cloves into the meat. I also lowered my oven to 325 immediately when I put the lamb in. No other modifications. Used a thermometer to check doneness. Very flavorful. I will certainly make this again.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This was excellent. I marinated it overnight and broiled instead of grilled. I poured the marinade over the salmon before broiling and it made a nice think glaze. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T. As a side I served "Spinach and Orzo Salad" and they went very well together.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I used two skinless leg quarters instead of a whole chicken and completely omitted the oil. This turned out so tender and yummy. I poured the juice over rice and that was delicious too. I will definitely put this into the regular rotation. Very easy and quick prep. Some veggies thrown in would work well too.

Avocado Stuffed Yams

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I was a skeptic since this sounded odd, but it was actually good! I nuked the taters to save time and used half of a red pepper and half of a seeded tomato instead of 1 red pepper. I also left out the oil and cheese...completely unnecessary. Yum!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This was delicious and is a new favorite. I added black olives, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes. The recipe makes a TON though, so i had enough for several meals. I served this as a side to "Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon" from this site and they went together very well.

Portofino Lamb and Artichoke Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This was excellent! I used leftover lamb from jmass's "Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary" from this site. I also took another user's advice and used white wine instead of red, for a more visually appealing meal. I added the garlic in with the onions in the beginning instead of waiting until the end. I will be making this again next time there is leftover lamb.
