Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
These were great! I used kidney beans as recommended. I prepped the sweet potatoes by baking them in a 450 deg. oven for an hour, then peeling the skins off and mashing. I did make a few changes-I sautéed the onion and garlic with the spices first as another reviewer suggested, used dijon mustard, and replaced the soy sauce/cayenne with salt and pepper. I found that it did not need the 2c water. When baking the burritos, I lined the sheet with parchment paper and flipped them halfway through to get both sides crispy. This definitely made enough for 12 burritos made out of 8" tortillas. I ate it with plain greek yogurt, diced fresh tomatoes, and lettuce on top!

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This is my go-to mashed potatoes recipe for any big event. It's always a hit. I usually have people come up to me and say, "I don't usually like yams, but I loved this!"

Crab-Stuffed Catfish

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Wow. I didn't expect this to be as delicious as it was. I added diced onion, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce to the crab filling, and sprinkled some lemon juice over the finished dish, which I think really added to the taste. My only gripe is that the fish was really hard to cut widthwise, but this was partially because my knives are pretty dull and partly because my fillet was very thin.

Pesto Polenta Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Very good. I did half mushroom/onion/spinach/artichoke heart, and half onion/spinach/zucchini/tomato sauce. My only gripe is that you end up with a ton of liquid and oil at the bottom of the pan unless you somehow drain the pesto and make sure your sauce is thick. I periodically took it out of the oven and held a spatula over the top (I made a single serving so this was possible) and drained the liquid off. The taste was amazing though.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
The taste was great, but it needed more broth and celery and less meat and potatoes. After quadrupling the broth, there was still barely enough. I added a little bit of red cooking wine to the meat along with the Worcestershire sauce.

Gingered Flank Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Wow. Delicious. I marinated it overnight and made it in a skillet, and it was to die for. Served it with asparagus and mashed potatoes.

Unbelievable Chicken

Delicious. I made it with dijon mustard and it turned out amazing.

Gingery Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I was a bit disappointed. This is missing something- perhaps some vegetable or chicken broth (or even apple cider?) poured over the squash while it is in the oven for the last time.

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I made this as a single serving, but didn't end up with enough toppings- so I doubled. The taste was amazing enough to make up for this. I ate it with asparagus and brown rice- perfect.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Good, not amazing. I will make it again because it's so good for you. I made a sixth of the recipe into a single serving pizza. Next time I'll put way more toppings on (I did half cheese and fresh basil, half cheese/pineapple/mushroom) to balance the breadiness.

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Good, but no pancake recipe worth its salt will tell you to beat the batter "until smooth." You should always leave pancake batter lumpy, unless you want flat, rubbery pancakes.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Very good, but they need salt and pepper, this makes them much less bland. I baked them at 400 for about 45 minutes. If you want a healthier option, substitute some or all of the oil with egg white. It's not quite as good (maybe deserving of 4 stars rather than 5), but it's definitely still tasty. EDIT: I tried these in the pan this time rather than baking. Microwaved pre-cut red potatoes, skins on, for about 8 min on high with a bit of water and chopped fresh garlic, then sprayed with low-cal butter spray and cooked over medium heat for about 10 min. Just as good, and quicker.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Definitely a good idea to grill the pineapple and veggies separately from the chicken. I also made a dipping sauce using the leftover marinade.

The Twenty Dollar Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Good taste, but it was pretty hard to get them to stick together. If you squeeze the patties out inside paper towels before putting them on the grill, that helps.

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Didn't love it, didn't hate it. My biggest problem was that it was too thin. Next time, I'll add another can of drained tuna. I scooped it up with potato chips.

Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup I

SO delicious. I couldn't stop eating it! I left the peppers out because I don't like them.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
This is delicious! I only had green lentils, but it was still so amazing. I used 5 cups of water with vegetable bouillon and ended up adding about 1.5 additional cups of water after it simmered for 30 minutes. My only criticism is that this makes about 4 cups of soup total, so if you are feeding a family, you will need to double the recipe.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Pretty good. The sauce thickened very quickly and became hard to spread, even on a low heat- next time, I would mix the liquids before putting them in the pan. I also liked the addition of lemon juice after it was done in the oven.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Good, but a lot of the flavor came off with the skin. I will try this again with skinless breasts.
