Sicilian Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I doubled this recipe, and then put it over 16 ounces of pasta. I too felt I wouldn't like it cold, so it simmered on the stovetop until the rest of dinner was ready. It smelled great, so I had high hopes! It did not disappoint, it was awesome! Such a nice change to have the nuts in the sauce too! I am looking forward to leftovers tonight!

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I put this on leftover pita bread instead, and then cut it into wedges to go with pasta. A nice change of pace from garlic bread!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I sliced these very thin, and added garlic powder and doubled the parmesan cheese. I baked for 10 minutes on one side, flipped them, and then baked them for another 10. I broiled them at the end too to make sure they were crispy.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Well, the verdict is still out on whether I like beets. But this was interesting, to say the least. I liked the flavor of the roasted beets, just wasn't sure about the texture. And since I wasn't sure how soft they should be, I think I overcooked them a bit. Before serving, I crumbled a little bit of fresh goat cheese on top, which made this dish awesome, with melty goat cheese, how can one go wrong?

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was good, but I think using regular coconut milk and regular soy sauce would make it so much better! I'm used to the curry at my favorite Thai restaurant being so much more flavorful and creamy with the coconut.

Grilled Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
These were very good, and an easily adaptable recipe too for different spices. I used new white potatoes, and this cooking method was not long enough. They needed more time boiling or more time on the grill to get them finished. I will make this again though!

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I made this using key limes instead of lemons and it still came out beautifully! Squeezing and draining those limes was a little more effort, but so worth it!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
There was no way I was using 5 serranos, too painful! I subbed one jalapeno instead and it was perfect. I also added a clove of chopped garlic. Will make this again!

Minnesota Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
This was the first thing finished at a barbecue this weekend. I had never made a broccoli salad using anything other than raw broccoli, so I was concerned I would mess it up. It turned out perfect! I wish I had made more though, I've already been requested to make it again!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
All the veggies in the soup really appealed to me, but I don't know if I'd make it again. Maybe without the onion soup mix? This was the first time I've ever used that soup mix and it was pretty salty. I also added garlic. If I make it again I'll add garbanzos and some different seasonings instead of the soup mix.

Peanut Butter Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I have to agree with everyone, the method of cutting the peanut butter and cold butter really makes this good and interesting! I wanted to try the recipe as written to see how it was before I modified it. I have a sweet tooth, so my first instinct was yeah, it's not sweet enough. The peanut butter flavor is pretty light too. But overall, I think these were perfect muffins. Nice and light and fluffy! If I made it sweeter, I think it'd be a cupcake, not a muffin. As it was, it was perfect with a chai tea this morning! I think those peanut butter chips would be great in this, as would chocolate chips. If you add more sugar and make it a cupcake, add chocolate frosting! MMMmmm!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I wish these were spicier! Next time I'll add the whole jalapeno and maybe a little chile powder as well. I ended up opening my burrito and adding some fresh spicy pico de gallo. Perfect! I will make these again for sure, so fast and easy!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I didn't have the almonds, but this was very good! I'll do it again on the grill in foil packets.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This was excellent! I barbecued the sausages because I'm a vegetarian and didn't want it in the sauce, but the sauce was delicious! I can't wait for leftovers!

Pasta and Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I only used about 12 ounces of gemelli pasta because I didn't want it to be too bland. It wasn't spicy at all with the jalapeno, I wouldn't leave it out! I mixed in a few ounces of cream cheese and mixed in the mozzarella too before I baked it.

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I love all the ingredients separately, but apparently not together. Maybe it was just too much filler (bread crumbs, wheat germ?) and not enough good stuff? Plus, I followed directions exactly and it was still a soggy, hard-to-slice mess.

Delicious Raisin Nut Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I was honestly surprised this tasted so awesome! I thought for sure I would see cereal flakes, but you would never know it's in there. I used Raisin Bran Crunch, but it seems like a perfect way to use up any cereal in your house. I also added a dash of cinnamon and a dash of cloves. Perfect with my morning cup of coffee!

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was a great dish, but I wish I had let it simmer longer. If I made it again, I might even let it sit in the crock pot for a few hours on low. It was great over rice, spicy but the perfect amount. I also used it as a filling in burritoes with cheese.
