Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
With over 1500 reviews, you know it's good. But heck, why not add one more great review. It is GREAT. I love bacon. 1 pound was perfect, but I think I really used 3 pounds of potatoes - and they were on the big side, not so new. I did fiddle with this a bit - no eggs in mine, added scallions and used red onion. Also added a splash of vinegar to the mayo before adding. It's now my go-to summer picnic, potluck sharing dish and EVERY SINGLE TIME people ask for the recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This recipe is ridiculous - it is so good it actually made my kids LOVE salmon which they used to seriously despise. A few days after I made this recipe, (they practically licked their plates clean), we were passing the fish case at the supermarket. The silver brite salmon filets caught my middle son's eye. He stopped in his tracks mesmerized and muttered "Salmon?" Followed by a more excited "Is that Salmon?!" Then my other two joined in. "Where? Salmon?" They were all drawn to the case. Pressing their faces and palms against the glass all three were chanting "Saaalmon. Saaaalmon." It was an embarrassing proud moment - until a lady next to us said, "wow, they really like Salmon, huh?" Then it was just embarrassing. I cheated - I really didn't marinate, more like poured it on 5 min before cooking and then threw it on the grill. Ridiculously easy, ridiculously awesome. How the heck did you come up with this? Impressive! (Oh, the grown ups loved it too!)

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
2 out of my 3 kids loved these. My oldest hated them, but I think he must just be a crazy teenager because they were good! My middle loved the BROWNEST ones (I would have called them slightly burned, but he might have stopped eating them) and my daughter liked the crispy but less brown ones. Adults preferred the "still pretty green" ones with a slight bit of chew left in 'em - we got all varieties on each pan. BTW - we used kosher salt (not seasoned) and tossed it all in a bowl to coat evenly. They were all gone in 20 minutes. I got a tip from someone that the leaves need to be completely dry before starting the prep work or they will end up mushy. I still can't believe we even tried this recipe, (thanks CSA for forcing us to go home with kale) but glad we did. Do not listen to people who say "they are EXACTLY like potato chips!". As good as these are, the taste in not the same; don't believe the hype. They ARE however, an excellent alternative (I think I might actually prefer these, but I don't want to admit that yet!) Thanks for posting!

Beet Greens and Green Beans with Tomato and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
Very good (my kids didn't like it but they ate it, without making faces, so that is a compliment. We let them add some Parmesan cheese). We parents, however, really enjoyed this. A more creative way to eat beet greens and thankfully easy, (but we left out the red pepper flakes). We always use the whole vegetable, so this was one of three dishes from one bunch of beets. (I removed all the stems, chopped them up and put them in meatballs and found a roasted beet recipe here too.) I do wonder, what this recipe would be like with the chopped beets added. Kicking myself for not taking a pic - it's a good looking dish too.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
My kids will eat it, but need some coaxing. We parents, really liked this one. I followed the recipe except that I never use plastic so I just tossed the sweet potatoes with onions and other ingredients in a bowl; no need for the bag. When it was time to add the rest to the baking sheet, I actually poured the hot beets into my pyrex bowl that had the oil, potatoes, etc, mixed it up and poured it back out onto the sheet. I found it really difficult to mix on a baking sheet - the pieces kept falling off (step 3) so I again, just poured it all into the bowl and back to the sheet - the mixing is important to redistribute the juices that form. Chunks of Vidalia onion work really well and we used white sweet potatoes. Chopping can be done the night before - which is so key for us - so you only have to plan for the 45 min of mixing/cooking before dinner.

Root Veggie Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
Changes were slight- no miso paste over here (omitted - we need to be Gluten Free) and no seasoned salt (just used sea salt) but this was really wonderful. We also just used baby bella mushrooms. I wanted a recipe to let my CSA kohlrabi's taste shine and this did. Great veggie recipe - very substantial and all three of my kids (though not terribly picky eaters) really enjoyed it.
