Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
Great recipe. As per other reviewers, I cut down on the salt (used about 25% less) and I am glad that I did as otherwise it would've likely been too salty. I used tilapia and baked for 15-20 minutes at 350 and loved the taste of the fish. I had way more than just two fillets so I doubled the recipe in terms of spices but still used only 6 tablespoons of olive oil. This was more than enough as it coated all 6 fillets that I had perfectly.

Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Great recipe. I skipped the capers and used prepared mustard instead of horseradish since that's all I had on hand. As others have mentioned, don't feel you need to follow this recipe verbatim. I think the salmon would've tasted just the same if you put salt, pepper and lemon wedges on it. At the end of the day it's the dill sauce that makes the dish.

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
Had to add about an extra half teaspoon of salt to make more flavorful. LOVED this baked fries.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This is now my go-to quinoa recipe. I used half the amount of beans, as suggested by other reviews and also reduced the amount of cayenne pepper as I am sensitive to anything too spicy. Love it!

Grilled Rock Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
Loved it although I did add a bit more garlic powder. Next time I'll try butter instead of olive oil and minced garlic instead of garlic powder.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I made these today and they were awesome. The reason it gets a 4 star is because the recipe wouldn't be great without modifications. I added garlic powder, salt and pepper in addition to the paprika and oil. I baked at 350 for 50 minutes and they were nice and soft. If you'd like them a bit crunchier on the outside I would suggest baking at 400 for 40 minutes.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
Love this. Make sure you marinade for a long time or flavor wont seep through.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Pretty good recipe. The chicken is what makes it or breaks it, not the cream of broccoli, so make sure it's well spiced!

Barbecued Beef Liver

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I can see why liver despisers would like this recipe. The barbecue sauce masks the taste of liver to the point that it feels like you are eating some sort of undefined, nutritious beef covered in a sweet barbecue sauce. Me, on the other hand, I love liver and don't want to mask it's taste to such an extent. So although good, this recipe isn't for me (I should mention that my husband liked it). Also, you definitely do not need 20 minutes of simmering. 5 minutes should be plenty. If liver is over cooked it will become chewy and unappetizing.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Although the taste was great, the cream and butter split, ultimately leaving me with bits of Alfredo rather than an Alfredo sauce. As suggested by a reviewer, I tried whisking throughout and still had no luck. I'd suggest adding a bit of white pepper and salt.
