Turnip with Coconut

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
A keeper for us-- always looking for good ways to prepare the CSA bumper crop of turnips. Made as directed except for: skipped the optional ingredient, added a small amount of garlic, and added some tofu at end to make it into a one dish meal. Hearty and interesting flavor combination. Make sure to use unsweetened coconut-- I almost grabbed the wrong one out of the pantry and I think that would have ruined it. Thanks for the great recipe!

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: May 25, 2013
I love this recipe and make it regularly. I do adjust some of the amounts of spices to our taste, and usually make bigger patties than it calls for. A word about the "grossness" of canned salmon: depending upon the brand you buy, some do contain skin and bones, but you can get others that are more like tuna. I just remove the skin, feed it to my cat or throw it away. The bones are so soft that they just mash into mush and disappear into the mixture with no effect on taste. you will not choke on one of these bones-- trust me. I know it sounds gross, but it's actually a terrific source of calcium and really good for you. Trader Joe's makes a can of pink wild Alaskan salmon about the size of a tuna can that is skinless and boneless. It works well with this recipe but you need to adjust the amounts to keep it together more. Two cans with the recipe as written but making 4 patties works pretty well even though it's 12 oz instead of 16. In general, though, I think the flavor is better when you use the red salmon and deal with the skin and bones.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
These are terrific for my taste- I really like them although my husband rates them as just OK. I usually make a big batch and freeze half of them in individual wrapping for quick and easy lunches. I microwave them right from being frozen. Good with the kidney beans as written, but also good with black beans. Thanks for this one-- yummy!!

this recipe makes a lot, so be aware. I used less oil since that's to my taste. I love the flavors together-- thanks for posting.

Good simple recipe for kale chips. I found the reviewer Jennie's post from June 21st 2010 to be very helpful.

Crispy Eggplant with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
We really liked this one-- very tasty. I didn't have wheat germ, so I subbed bread crumbs. thanks for the healthy version of a normally greasy dish!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Great basic recipe. I often incorporate variations like using browned tofu in place of the shrimp or skipping one or two of the herbs if I don't have them on hand and they always come out well.

Barbeque Tempeh Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Sorry, but this was pretty mediocre by our taste. Perhaps the kind of barbecue sauce that we use for meat dishes wasn't the right flavor to mix with the tempeh.

Healthier Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I really liked this recipe-- the cookies have a great soft texture. I did adjust per a few other reviewer's suggestions and used some ww flour and reduced the sugar to one cup. I also used non fat plain greek yogurt as that's what I had on hand. A keeper for sure!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I make this regularly in the winter and my husband and I both love it. I use a few tweaks-- I up the spices to suit our taste, use whole wheat flour, and make the potatoes into bigger chunks. I also found that I needed to adjust the timing for my crock pot. My cheat timing is to do one hour on high and 4 hours on low. Thanks for the terrific recipe!
