Trio of Mashed Roots (Parsnip, Turnip and Carrot)

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
I really liked this and will definitely make again! My hubby loved it as well as he is into Fall/ Winter dishes like this as well. I made it as a side dish with baked chicken (see Exotic Pomegranate Chicken another delicious recipe posted on here). I used about a cup of low fat milk, salt pepper and added cinnamon and it all blended wonderfully! I poured the pomegranate gravy to serve (from the chicken) and garnished with cilantro (served it warm). Also easy to make and refigerate ahead of time. Tasted better the next day.Thank you for posting!

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2014
I was a little disappointed in this recipe, but my husband liked it. First of all, I used a lite pale ale beer and all of the spices it called for (although I only used a dash of paprika). It came out really bland. On a positive note, the batter stuck really well to the cod, because I floured them before frying. I also fried it in canola oil, which I read was healthier than vegetable oil. I will make this again, but with a darker, better quality beer, and will only use salt and pepper (while omitting the garlic salt and paprika).

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I would definitely make these glazed carrots again and/or bring it to a potluck or gathering. I took another chef-reviewer's suggestion by adding 1 tsp. of cornstarch and 1 tsp. of water, and letting it stand for 10 minutes to thicken (just because I prefer thicker sauces and glazes). I also added 2 tsb. of Smart Balance butter, 3 Tb. of brown sugar, and 1 Tb. of sugar-free maple syrup (with a little bit of fresh dill and salt/pepper). I had served this with flounder using a soy sauce/maple syrup glaze (see Maple Salmon recipe for the maple syrup glaze recipe). This glaze is also great for dipping (so be sure to serve it with a loaf of bread).

Italian Style Flounder

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
This flounder recipe was another to-die for one. I didn't have any tomatoes or basil, but I took another reviewer's suggestion and mixed Italian Style breadcrumb mix with Smart Balance butter, and fresh minced garlic. I had seasoned the fillets with salt and pepper and grated fresh ginger for a little kick to it, then spread the breadcrumb mixture on top of the fillets, and added dried parsley and thyme. I baked it at 350 for 25 minutes, then broiled it for 5 minutes for a crispier topping (I stood there to watch it because I never leave the broiler unattended). When I took the fish out, I had seasoned it with lemon juice, fresh cilantro, had served with salad, garlic/lemon juice-sauteed steamed asparagus (another delicious recipe that was posted on this site) and with my husband's homemade garlic bread. It was delicious. Thank you for posting and for the recommendations! :)

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
This is now my secondary favorite salmon recipe. It is to die for. I took one fellow chef-reviewer's suggestion by omitting the garlic salt and using ground ginger instead. I marinated it for 30 min., baked at 400 for 25 min. And it came out perfect. I served it with Mediterreanean Summer Tomato Salad with French bread (you should try that recipe too which is also posted on this site under salads) and it was so good. It was very filling and satisfying. Thank you for posting! :-)

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
My husband and I made this last night, and we loved it. I would definitely make this again, and maybe add other variations to it (or will try baking it next time). I would definitely make this for company- it's easy, delicious, and impressive! I also think other fish or meat could be used as a substitute- as to what a few other friendly fellow chef-eviewers have said. Thanks for posting this! :)
