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.

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!

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

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!

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
This is a wonderful cake. I didn't change a thing in the recipe, although I used Asian pears. It came out moist yet light, and truly delicious. I'll make it again for sure!

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!

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.

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!

Bourbon Street Rib-Eye Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
This is a great way to give steaks extra flavor. the only change I made was to add some chopped shallot and to reduce the amount of brown sugar to 2 tablespoons. I also marinated some chicken thighs along with the steaks, and they came out super delicious!

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!

Pumpkin-Sausage Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2001
These were really unusual and tasty...a great combination of sweet and savory! I didn't have time to make the pastry (though I'm sure it would be even better that way), so I used frozen phyllo mini tart shells. Everyone devoured them at my party.

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2002
This is a delicious (if less than authentic) dish! I added jalapenos and a few shakes of Tobasco to give it some kick, and served over steamed short-grain brown and wild rice...my hubbie and I loved it!
