Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
This recipe could be improved, but makes a good, light dish that does well without gravy. As written, the garlic may burn and the potatoes will be thick. We added extra garlic for more flavor, used less olive oil and increased the butter and milk. 2 tbs of butter for 4 lbs of potato may be less than you are used to. We also added minced fresh parsley; it went well with the garlic and freshly-grated cheese. Roast the garlic for under 20 minutes; the potatoes should cook about that long if you like them creamy. If we make gravy next time we might cut out the parmesan cheese and herbs or try a different recipe, but this dish help up well by itself. We will make it again on occasion.

Blackened Portobello-Mushroom Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
A great main dish, and good as a side with a few changes. We substituted yellow mustard, olives (for tomato and onion), ketchup (for tomato sauce) and parmesan. We also reduced the amount of salad greens and mushrooms to make it a side dish. The dressing / marinade was excellent, even with our substitutions. A different seasoning for the Cajun would make a less spicy recipe, if you like. One half a mushroom per person was excellent, and red lettuce with napa cabbage worked as greens, though romaine might be best. It went well with roast potatoes and chicken with a beet soup, adding variety to the meal. This is a classy, flavorful salad that will satisfy meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
