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.

Sweet Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I use a food processor to grate the carrots which makes this recipe all that much easier. This will become a staple at our house. Thanks!

Mom's 'Sweet 'n' Sours' Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This will be my new rib standard recipe! The dish turned out wondefully...moist meat, and yummy flavors. I did make the following adjustments: less soy sauce and water, used brown sugar instead of white, and used rice vinegar. The sauce thickened up nicely with the use of slightly less liquids.

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.

Wasabi Mayo Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Trader Joe's sells Wasabi Mayo which worked fabulously. Makes this delicious and easy recipe even easier! I don't think it makes too much difference which potato chips you use; they all add a nice crunch to the dish.

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!

Buttery Lemon Spinach

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I microwaved on high for 3 mins to get it perfectly between too under-done and too wilted. Used 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 butter. I also listened to another reviewer and added some red pepper flakes. It was great, and I will make it again.

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
Easy, and delicious. I didn't have an orange, so I substituted with std orange juice, and it turned well. This will be a fall staple at our dinner table.

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.

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!

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.

Catfish Tuscany

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Prepared just as directed, and it came out superbly done. Nice presentation, too. Used the roma tomatoes instead of sundried. It will be a staple in our home. Thanks!

Beef Mushroom Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
After a few modifications based on previous reviewers' feedback, I added canned mushrooms, sliced black olives, and garlic in the saute. I also used finely-chopped venison instead of ground beef. This dish was delicious!

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
the taste was bland, I added many more mushrooms and there was still just barely enough. The cornstarch works best if you mix it with a bit of water in a cup and THEN add it to the skillet. Otherwise, it just forms into lumps. In my opinion, the recipe as it stands requires too many adjustments to make it worth the effort.

Baked Shells in Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
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!

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.

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
Per other reviewer suggestions, I used 1/3 cup port, 1/3 cup water, and 1 TBSP soy sauce. This sauce is a keeper!

Grilled Montana Trout

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I felt that the rosemary and lemon flavors melded perfectly with the trout in this recipe. The timing on the grill was also ideal. Easy, tasteful, and a showy presentation. Thanks for a great recipe!

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.
