Mediterranean Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
I LOVED these flavors and the chewy texture of the Kale (over limpness of spinach which I also love.) I did not bother to steam, just rinsed it well in a pan, drained it, and left whatever water clung to the leaves to help with cooking. I added about 1/2 cup of vegetable stock instead of water and brought it to a boil, then turned it down a bit and cooked for 7-8 minutes as directed. I stirred a few times. I didn't bother to drain since a lot of the liquid steamed off anyway. I added the dressing to the hot kale in the pan to warm it up and take the edge off the raw garlic. Then I dished it up with a slotted spoon. The flavors were great, the preparation was very easy, and I love discovering a healthy recipe that is so tasty.

Indian Shrimp Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
absolutely fantastic flavor. I made it vegetarian by sauteing 2 cups of mushrooms with the onions, then adding 1 cup frozen green peas at the point where you would add shrimp. I also wanted a sweeter flavor and used a can of stewed tomatoes that I chopped up. Served it over rice and it was scrumptious. For an elegant look you can press a serving of rice into a small rounded bowl and then "flip " the bowl to empty it intact onto your serving dish Then ladle the curry mix around the rice, and adorn the rice mound with a piece of cilantro... gorgeous.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I loved it! And it was easier than written since I took the lazy way out and used uncooked lasagna noodles and simply let the dish sit for the afternoon before cooking it. I made a quick sauce with canned tomatoes and left all the liquid in so the noodles coudl soak up the liquid (the trick is to thin your sauce, and also to make sure the noodles are completely covered) The fennel seeds in this gave the recipe such and interesting and fantastic taste. It was even better the next day, and I'm always looking for dishes I can cook ahead... this is one! Thanks!

Twice-Baked New Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
These were elegant served at a dinner party. I used Kiwi-sized potatoes and saved about 1/4 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top before broiling. I also used a blend of cheeses and that gave nice color as well as flavor. With this, I didn't even need the bacon.... and since I'm vegetarian, I encourage others to leave this out-- if only to save the calories!

Maryland Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Excellent! These taste even better the next day when reheated, so I remember this recipe when I need to prepare things ahead for entertaining. Also the first time I made the recipe I used Ritz Crackers and that gave them a nice buttery taste. Either cracker works well. As a rule, I prefer to reduce the mayonnaise to 3/4 or 1/2 cup and they are not as mushy. GREAT and EASY recipe

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Fantastic! I'm looking for a recipe to serve dinner to 50 and will be able to do these ahead and serve at room temperature. The tuna remains very moist if you stick to 3 minutes on each side, and slices nicely to arrange on a platter. I recommend keeping a bit of fresh marinade for basting while cooking. Thanks for the perfect tuna recipe!

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I loved this right up until I added the balsamic vinegar. Funny, because I expected that to be wonderful but the dish was overpowered by the vinegar and would have been better simply roasted with the spices as listed.

Red Pepper Chimichurri

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
This had good flavor, but was very thin so I can't see it being used as a dip. Also very oily. Perhaps I didn't add enough parsley, but I was not sure at all how much a "bunch" is. I would consider this more a marinade as it turned out, rather than a dip or sauce. For those reasons I didn't rate it higher, but it has potential.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This is a great soup - nicely sweet and very healthy. On occasion I have successfully used vegetable bouillon for the stock and I have also successfully used regular canned tomatoes with 2 tsp of sugar when I didn't have stewed tomatoes.

My Grandmother's French Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I LOVED the blue cheese in this, but found the dressing too sweet. Will make it again and adjust the sugar accordingly

Summer Beer II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I love summer drinks, but this one was WAY TOO POTENT. Tasty, but simply too much Vodka. I'll try to figure out how to maintain the flavor but cut back on the alcohol next time.

Honey Garlic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
a very nice change from the sweeter dressings I always use. This was great on spinach with mushrooms and croutons. The mixture of slightly sweet with the salt of the croutons was good.

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I was looking for a vegetarian, low calorie soup that was also tasty and healthy -- THANK YOU! This is great. I love a sweet touch and was amazed at the flavor given by the sweet potatoes -and without added sugar! I used 8 oz of diced tomatoes with juice since I didnt' have fresh and that worked well. I encourage all to try this with vegetable broth (I used veg bouillon and it came out great) to provide a healthy meat-free meal now and then. Wonderful!

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Really very good. I followed advice of others and did my sour cream and mayonnaise in equal portions. It came out very thick - good for a dip. But I'll add milk to thin it more for a suitable salad dressing.

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
All my favorite ingredients - cheese, butter, garlic, cream and on! This had lots of flavor and was excellent. I was looking for something to mix with pasta, so it didn't matter that it was a bit thin due to using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream. It made quite a nice dish and thickened as it cooled. I'll do it again... thanks!

Chutney Baked Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
The flavors in this recipe are fantastic - but I learned from two mistakes. Like the reviewer who made the mistake of re-warming this in the microwave, I also overheated it in the oven - making it a gooey mess (delicious, but gooey!) It would be better to UNDERHEAT it since you still want to serve it with the consistency of a soft cheese. I also will use a little less chutney next time - it was too much as stated.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
this recipe definitely provides a good start to a healthy pancake. We decided it would be improved with the sweetness of warm fruit on top, or blueberries in the batter.

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was very tasty and made an elegant dessert when prepared in an attractive pie dish for serving. I tossed the peaches with cinnamon/brown sugar and put some on the bottom of the plate, saving some for the top of the batter. Yummy warm with vanilla ice cream.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This is absolutely wonderful as is, but the sauce is also fantastic as a chinese stir-fry adding carrots, celery, onions and papper. Simply stir fry the veggies (the broccoli too) and add 2 tsp cornstarch to the sauce before adding to the vegetables in the pan. Stir to mix and allow to thicken a bit. Then serve over rice. A GREAT vegetarian meal.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
thought this was a little too rich, and I usually love to induldge!- but each time I took only a small square and my stomach felt overwhelmed. I'll try a variation of the recipe next time.
