Grilled Mahi Mahi in Thai Coconut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
Great flavor in the coconut sauce. I followed directions nearly all the way, but also threw in some of the sauce with the fish during the end of the cooking time. It kept the meat nice and moist. A super easy and delicious main dish.

Potato Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Like others I made a few modifications. Sauteed onions and garlic with the other spices to start. Added some carrots. Swapped sweet potatoes for the regular- less carbs! Also threw some cilantro on top. Overall great!

Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This has fast become one of my favorite comfort foods. I use a few substitutions, namely brown sugar for white sugar and coconut oil in place of most of the butter- otherwise it is so perfect! Really hits the spot for breakfast or dinner!

Southwestern Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
So easy and tasty. I used red quinoa which makes the presentation very beautiful. I omitted the cheese, but added in a fresh jalapeno to my sautee mix. Finally, I made a wrap with the quinoa salad- a warm whole wheat tortilla with some pepper jack cheese and avocado. A great lunch!

Quinoa-Cranberry Salad with Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Simple and tasty for sure. The changes I made included using red quinoa instead of regular (really yummy and nutty). I used fresh cranberries rather than dried as they are in season and so good for you! I also sauteed a small onion and garlic to add to the mix. As far as seasonings go I mixed the olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper per the recipe and then added a little honey for sweetener and some fresh sage from my home herb garden. To finish I threw in some fresh chopped parsley also. This recipe is awesome because you can really mix and match what is in your cabinets and make it work regardless. The last thing I'll add is that quinoa always takes a bit longer to cook than the package says. It's usually ready for me in 20 minutes, not the indicated 6 or 7 minutes.

Spicy Couscous with Dates

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
"A food so nice they named it twice!" :) The rave reviews for this dish initially sold me. I gave the couscous a whirl, and was in awe of the superb mix of flavors. It reminds me of a Southern Mexico stew that combines many of the same flavors- cinnamon, anise, hot peppers, dates (they also add boiled eggs and potatoes!). The sugar from the dates nicely caramelized the rest of the veggies near the end of the cooking process. The warming spices are perfect for the coming cold months!
