Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
Loved this. I made it for a gathering and everyone loved it! I used parsley instead of cilantro...only because I goofed when I bought it, but I'm not a big fan of cilantro so it worked out for me! I also doubled the entire dressing part of the recipe and used about 2/3 of the amount of the dressing I made. I bought two medium russet potatoes because they didn't have the giant ones, also bought a yam (or so it was labled - I don't really know the difference). Also, I cooked the potatoes the day before, dunked them in ice water after cooking (as stated) and then sealed them a plastic container in the fridge. I think this really helps set the potatoes so that they don't fall apart. I also made the dressing the day before and I think that helped meld the flavors. I mixed the solid ingredients at home before taking to the outing and I put the dressing on at the VERY LAST minute right before serving.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I don't know why...but, I had to tweak it. I only made 1/2 the recipe as stated. I added 1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce and 3 dashes of tabasco. It was awesome.

Quinoa, Beet and Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I bought almost everything from Trader Joe’s and it made it really easy to make. I bought their organic red quinoa in a box. They have garlic in the freezer section that is already crushed – I used one cube of that in the dressing. I bought the Trader Joe’s brand of Chevre Goat Cheese 5 ounce package, I put it into the freezer for about 20 minutes before slicing it. The partial freezing makes it very easy to slice and crumble. I bought the 5 ounce bag of organic arugula also at TJ’s and used about ¾ of the bag. Also at TJ’s they have beets already steamed and peeled in the salad section. I used the whole 8 ounce package. I sliced them in about 1/8 inch slices and then again in 1/8 inch slivers. Green onions, red wine vinegar and olive oil can be bought anywhere…just so happens all of mine came from TJ’s also.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This is an awesome bean salad! I followed the directions very closely. Only differences were: used a 1/2 and 1/2 portion of balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar for the 1/2 cup. Used a can of shoepeg corn which is really the best corn for bean salads. Used only 1/2 red onion. And used very small red and green peppers. Didn't use cilantro at all...this doesn't need it! Once it was all put together it did look like a lot of dressing so I added a 4th can of beans - I had cannellini on hand. It can totally handle 4 cans of beans. YUM! YUM! Hubby said don't lose this recipe!

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Yum! Everyone raved over this salad. I did do two things differently. One, I added the finely chopped red onion to the dressing and let it marinate with the tortellini. Two, I used a mix of green leaf and red leaf lettuce instead of the spinach. I love spinach but I was in the mood for something different. If you have a Trader Joe's nearby buy the artisan lettuce and their cheese tortellini. Worked out perfect for me. This was a great recipe for the week after Easter since I had many eggs already cooked.

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Fast, easy and delicious! Can't go wrong with this one. I used vegetable broth because I was serving to vegetarians and I thought it was delicious this way also. No need to add saturated fat to this if you don't want it!

Curry Pineapple Fried Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and this is what I did: I added about 8 spears of chopped asparagus and 2 chopped carrots to the rice while cooking it in a half/half coconut milk and vegetable broth mixture. I let the rice sit for several hours. I used shrimp instead of chicken and added about 3 stalks of chopped green onion while cooking the shrimp. After adding the remaining ingredients and warming the rice through I turned off the heat and added another 4 stalks of chopped green onion for the finishing touch. Everyone loved it!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Had this last night with some fish and a salad. It was awesome! I steamed the carrots in the microwave, and when almost tender added the other ingredients. It was very simple and worked great! I will have this again.

Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
YUM! We cooked the chicken on the grill, then shredded it. I filled the tortillas while hubby made the green chili sauce. Perfect timing for two people cooking together. The sauce was done when I was done filling the tortillas. Then the spanish rice I cooked as the enchiladas were in the oven. And, the beans were in the small crock pot. It was an excellent meal!

Apple Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This was very good! Great flavors. I used pre-cooked bacon which made it a snap. I used Ken's Balsalmic vinaigrette on the apple and didn't have the time to marinate for a full hour. It was more like 20 minutes and it was still awesome! Thanks for a great salad!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
I have made this many years for Thanksgiving. I even made it with vegetable broth one year for my vegetarian friends. I do not stir mine at all during the cooking process and I like it that way. It really only takes about 5 hours to cook. My mom always wants me to put it into the oven for about a half hour right before serving....but it doesn't need it!! She just likes it crunchy on top.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
I made this recipe and changed a few things. I used only 2 cups of Vegetable stock and I used 3 cans of black beans (didn't drain) and added 1 can of refired black beans that had jalapeno added. Also, I omitted the corn and for the stewed tomatoes I instead used a can of tomatoes with green chilies. Served with sour cream, shredded cheese and sourdough bread. Everyone raved about the flavor!

Orange-Avocado Tossed Salad

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
I also only added 1/2 teaspoon curry and soy sauce. I think next time I might add the whole teaspoon. I liked the flavor! I also just had an urge to add some red onion to this recipe. So, I added a little less than 1/4 of a red onion sliced very thinly. I had requests for the dressing at the gathering I attended.

German-Style Beet Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars because of all the modifications. I did what others suggested and only used 1/2 the carraway. I also added the dill, a fresh mandarin orange and a little more horseradish. I also used beets that I had bought at Trader Joe's. They come pre-cooked and are found near the salad in plastic with a box around it. I used 1 1/2 packages. So much easier than cooking the beets. I had a couple people comment on the dish that they were surprised that they liked it as well. Not everybody is a beet person.
