Flank Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
This recipe is awesome! Pounding, piercing, and a long marinating time make this the most savory, tender flank steak I've ever eaten. The filling is delicious, and the pinwheel presentation makes this a great dish for company.

Almond Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2002
I thought this dish was very delicious...I've made several lemon chicken recipes before, but never one with orange marmalade and red pepper, which really made everything tastier. I used less olive oil than called for (probably just 2 tablespoons), and skipped the butter altogher. Serve with steamed broccoli and brown or wild rice for a delicious, balanced meal!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2002
This is a great recipe, and a nice twist on traditional bulgar tabbouleh. The quinoa gives it a very nice texture, and the addition of shredded carrots gives it some sweetness, which complements the lemony tang. I used half the olive oil to lower the calorie count a little. I'll make this one again!

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
This chili rocks! The wasabi, sausage, and multiple kinds of peppers really add depth of flavor. I always substitute ground beef with 2 cups of texturized vegetable protein (TVP) to make it a little healthier (add 2 extra cups of liquid if you try this). The beer I used was perfect for the recipe, too: Alaskan Brewery's Smoked Porter - they smoke the malt with alderwood before brewing...try it if you can find it. This will be added to my growing arsenal of awesome chili recipes from allrecipes...thanks Aaron! Deee--LISH

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Really good, although I used closer to a tablespoon of cajun seasoning.

Rich and Creamy Roasted Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2002
Holy smokes, this one's a winner! I made a few changes -- used water instead of chicken broth, added a tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary, and added a clove of pressed garlic just before serving. I used half and half instead of cream, but it was still deliciously rich. I can't wait to serve this one to company!

Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2001
These came out absolutely delicious. I had to chill the dough for about 15 minutes before it was firm enough to form the cookies, but other than that everything turned out perfect!

Kiwi Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2001
This was pretty unusual. I served it as a dip, but I think it would be better as a topping for grilled pork or fish.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
Delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. You can't go wrong with this one! Add a little salsa, top with zingy shredded cheese and bake it up for a nice casserole, too.

Watermelon Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2001
These margaritas were awesome! I just happened to have some frozen watermelon cubes, so I was very pleased to come across this recipe. I used Chambord liqueur instead of triple sec, since I had that on hand. Sweet and delicious! Great for a summer party!

Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: May 24, 2001
This seemed like a strange combination of flavors, but it really makes a wonderful salsa...complex-tasting with no unpleasant clash of flavors. Very creative and delicious! I'll definitely make it again.

Green Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2002
This is a wonderful dish. I especially liked the idea of stir-frying with sesame oil - it really adds depth of flavor. I also added broccoli to the stir-fry, used lite coconut milk, and served over steamed short-grain brown rice. Delicious!

Jamaican Me Crazy Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2002
This chili is really good, although it definitely needed spicing up! I added a minced habanero pepper, which gave it the needed zip. I also used texturized vegetable protein instead of ground beef to get the same texture as meat chili without all the saturated fat. I'll make this one again!

Rollatini with Pork and Rosemary Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
Although they're not a snap to make, these chicken breasts are a nice change from ordinary chicken breast dishes. I think next time I will try tying them together with kitchen string instead of using toothpicks -- might help them stay together better. All in all, it makes really nice "fancy" chicken dish. Be sure to get them nice and browned on the outside to assure that the inner chicken meat is fully cooked...I had to nuke mine an extra minute after cutting it open to find slightly raw chicken inside.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This was a big hit at a potluck. The only change I made was to use fresh baby spinach, blanched for 30 seconds, instead of frozen spinach. I will definitely keep this dish in my arsenal of things to serve at parties!

Joe's Incredible Bacon Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This was interesting and delicious. Definitely worth it to find maple cured bacon, which isn't the most common type you'll find at the grocery. If I make this again I will use half as much bacon, though -- it was a bit overwhelming.
