Tasty Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
After reading other reviews, I sliced my potatoes thinly and covered the baking dish with foil. That did the trick; the potatoes were very tender, but not mushy after only 45 mins. I also used golden raisins instead of regular raisins. A nice, simple and healthy side dish.

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Loved the ginger in this recipe. The only reason I can think of to omit the cherries is if they are out of season. There really do make the recipe delicious.

Poached Fish with Cucumbers

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Yum, yum, yum! I followed the recipe except for using Dijon mustard instead of plain mustard. I also went a little heavy on the tarragon (dried) based on another review indicating that it was a little bland. We loved the results, and hope you do, too!

Asian Rainbow Trout

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
This is really good. I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and substituted sesame oil and brown sugar for the olive oil and white sugar. I also baked the 1 lb. whole trout in foil in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 mins. It was perfect. I plan to make this often.

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Yum! A bit less mayo and relish is all that I changed. Love it!

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was terrific! We loved the spiciness of the dish. I followed other review advice and added two cubed potatoes into the mix. I also used ground Italian sausage instead of ground beef because that is what I had. I will make this again frequently!

Bolognese Spaghetti Sauce with Sausage (Ground Beef)

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
This was just what I was looking for...a good topping for spaghetti that wasn't too 'saucy.' Wouldn't change a thing.

Radish Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Used apprx 8 radishes from my garden, light cream cheese (only 8 oz) and minced garlic. What a refreshingly-light and tasty dip! I served it with butter crackers and dirty martinis per the 'What to Drink' suggestion. Yummy!

Delicious Artichokes

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Beware: If your artichokes are large, allow much longer for the steaming. My jumbo artichokes steamed for 1 1/4 hrs before they were even close to done. This wreaked havoc with coordinating an entire meal getting done at the same time.

I followed the advice of other viewers and added chopped onion, garlic, more tofu and used almost 22 oz. of a tomato and basil sauce. The casserole was delicious!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Every single bite was surprisingly delicious. Used ground venison instead of beef; otherwise, didn't change a thing. This is now our favorite hamburger recipe.

Venison Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I did lots of things wrong, and this still turned out to be a very yummy dish. I used cubed venison stew meat instead of beef strips. I also put all of the seasoning on the meat to marinade instead of saving some for the veggies. Even so, we couldn't stop eating this until it was completely gone!

Queso Catfish

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I had the same issue as another reviewer...my fillets were thick and needed about 5-6 mins longer in the oven. I only had real cheddar cheese, so I added a little milk, salsa and a small spoon of sour cream to a handful of cheddar cheese cubes instead of the chipotle and processed cheese spread. Otherwise, everything else was the same, and the dish was very good.

Spinach with Apples and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Yummy. Per other reviewers, I used a green apple, added some chopped sun-dried tomatoes to the saute and feta cheese at the end. Very good!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is one of my favorite recipes on the website. I'm a carnivore, but this kind of dish could make me a vegetarian. I utilized the helpful hints of other reviewers (drained and seared tofu). We couldn't stop eating this great dish.

Absolute Best Liver and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Since my BF is a hunter, I make venison liver and onions fairly often from an old, standard type of recipe. This time, I bathed the liver in fat-free milk for appx 6 hours. What a difference! The texture was consistently wonderful from piece to piece, and the taste was fabulous. We couldn't stop eating the liver and onions. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Per suggestions by other reviewers, I cooked the squash in the microwave and substituted Italian Seasonings for the various spices. I used ground venison instead of beef, and added some fresh mushrooms I had on hand. Delicious and healthy!

Eggplant Caviar

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Yep. Looks icky in the end, and still tastes really good. I took pts from other reviewers...cut back on OO, added garlic powder, cut back on dill a bit. I like the fact that it is low-cal, and healthy.

Deer Chop Hurry

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
I used antelope chops, did not brown the meat first as other reviewers indicated it wasn't necessary, and added some fresh mushrooms. It turned into a ragu-type of dish, so I served it over garlic mashed potatoes. Talk about easy and delicious!
