Spiced Turkey Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
This was AMAZING. My mother literally cried, it was so good. She claims it's the best turkey she's ever had, and and I'd have to agree. I used a 3 lb. turkey breast (the recipe calls for 1.5 lb.), and cooked uncovered at 350 F for an hour and a half. I doubled the sauce and spices, but ended up with too much of those. It came out perfect- absolutely moist and cooked through. I poured the juices over the final product. In terms of the cranberry sauce: I would really recommend increasing the brown sugar significantly- not as good for you, but the sauce was way too bitter without it.

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.

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.

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.

Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
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.

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.

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
this may be the best quiche i've ever had. the vegetables filled 2 9-inch crusts (not deep dish), but i needed a little extra egg and milk. i just threw tons of spices in there, like oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and sage. the lentils filled out the taste well.

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
it was very filling and tasted pretty good, but i think i would have liked it better without the salsa. ETA: ok, i have made this about 10 times now. it is now one of my favorite soups and a go-to recipe when i want an unusual soup. i use medium salsa, and blend about a third of the soup in the blender to even out the texture a bit. my roommate is obsessed with this stuff and would eat it every night if i'd make it that often.

Avocado Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
AMAZING. However, the topping isn't nearly enough for an entire baguette- I would double it. 1 baguette with enough topping would feed 4 or 5 people. I didn't use fresh basil, and I drizzled the olive oil instead of spraying.

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!

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
Mmmm. I doubled the spices (including adding another bay leaf) and substituted 6 cups veggie broth and 2 cups chicken broth for the water, and it hit the spot.

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!"

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
WOW. I can't stand pork, and I used a really cheap piece of meat, but this looked so good I had to try some. Sauteed some onions first in some olive oil, then covered the pork in lemon juice plus a bit of soy sauce, really rubbed all the spices possible on the pork, cooked, sauteed some basil, tomato, and garlic plus the onion, topped it all on the pork plus some feta. MMMMMMM. This is a combo with the other pork/feta recipe on the site, with some alterations.

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
Changes: Went for half whole wheat flour, half white, split the oil with applesauce, and threw in some shredded zucchini, flax seed, and soy protein for good measure. Replaced sugar with Splenda for baking. Also made 12, not 18 muffins. I used pre-shredded carrots, but I think I would have been better off shredding them myself- it threw off the texture a bit. Slightly undercooked in the middle of the bigger ones, but that's my fault. They are delish, and I imagine they're pretty good for you with my modifications.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

I added a half cup of thawed sweet corn. I loved the added texture. I cooked it for about 25 minutes at 375.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
These were delicious, but by no means did each batch yield 30 cookies. I used a small cookie cutter, and rolled pretty thin. They're better rolled thicker, anyway.

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.
