Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
The first time I tried this I mixed all the dressing in with the salad, and felt it was too much (too soggy and was overwhelmed by the sweetness in the dressing). The second time I let each person mix the amount desired with the salad on his/her plate, and then discovered that the refrigerated leftover dressing is DELICIOUS served cold with cold pasta! (I used tricolor spiral pasta.) Next time I think I'll make extra dressing, just to have the leftovers to use in another pasta salad afterward...

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
Delicious just as written; liked it even better served with a little chopped cilantro sprinkled on top. Thanks for sharing - we'll be having this again!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I've been trying out lots of recipes from this site, and my husband said "This is delicious- the best one yet!" He usually doesn't like fish cooked at home due to the smell, but this didn't smell fishy. I'm not normally much of a fish eater, but I really liked this, as did my 2 yr old. I added chopped ginger, as some other reviewers suggested. Will make many more times!

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
Delicious! You may want to increase the quantity, though - 2 adults and a 2 year old finished it and wanted more.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
"You should open a restaurant, babe!" is what my husband's response was when he took his first bite. I'm normally not much of a cook at all, but this dish makes it seem like I know what I'm doing. I used fresh chopped basil (3 TBSP) and basil-flavored olive oil; otherwise followed recipe as is. It wound up being finished a little before I could serve it, so I let the pork chops sit back in the hot pan with the topping for 10 or 15 minutes. This turned out to be a nice way to get the pork hot again, as well as to let it soak up some of the juices and be even more moist. YUM! Will certainly make often in our home. I served with candied carrots from this site, which we liked. I think rice or angel hair pasta would've been nice, too, with the juices from the topping.

Sweet Pepper Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
I was excited to try this, but was disappointed. It just didn't have much taste other than all that garlic. Not sure if it was the quality of my peppers or what. Had to add lots of salt and pepper when eating it, and my husband wasn't impressed, either. Won't be making it again.

Coriander and Cumin Rubbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
WOW! I almost didn't make this because I didn't have ground coriander, but I did have some fresh frozen leafy coriander (same as cilantro) that I decided to substitute, instead. It was soooo good! My husband has never liked pork chops when I cook them (says they're too dry and not much taste), but commented immediately on these being good. And they're really easy! My only mistake was serving with spanish rice; too many spices to be complimentary together. Recommend to serve with something rather mild, so you can appreciate the pork's flavor. I've never commented on this site, but just had to rave about this....
