Potato Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
I followed the recipe as written and I'm sorry to say it wasn't very exciting. I see some reviewers added additional vegetables and/or changed the sauce. I could see this being better with some changes, but as is it was just too much potato. The vinegar also made it inedible for my 2 and 7 year old, and the 7 year old will eat just about anything! I wish people would rate the recipe as is instead of rating their changed recipe. It would save a lot of time not having to read through a bunch of comments.

Chef John's Turkey Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
Made this as written except I omitted the cheese since my husband doesn't like it. 5 stars from the adults, but the 6 year old said it was too spicy. Honestly it was barely spicy to me and my husband didn't even notice any spice, but next time I'll cut back on the cayenne for the kids.

Really Wicked Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2013
I made this tonight for a family get together. Everyone thought it was really good, so much so that I ran out of chips, oops! I liked how it wasn't all greasy. I changed a few things: sour cream instead of yogurt, pre-shredded 4 cheese mix instead of the cheeses listed, and halved the amount of pepper flakes and half the amount of pepper since I knew some guests don't like spicy foods. I goofed and didn't realize how much this actually makes, lol! I ended up with a full 9x13 pan of it. One thing is that after 8 minutes in the oven it wasn't even warm all the way through. After 20 minutes it was warm, but wasn't hot like I wanted, however it was OK and people were hungry so I took it out anyway. This will definitely need more time in the oven to get nice and hot. Thanks for the recipe :)

Easy Snack Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
These were good and I thought they made for a nice alternative to a sandwich for lunch. I made sure to only use the meaty part of the tomato so there wasn't extra moisture. I made some with burrito sized tortilla's for others and one for myself in a smaller, corn gluten free tortilla. The corn tortilla was unappealing, so I actually made another one wrapped in lettuce - put the cream cheese right on the lettuce wrap and followed the directions basically the same. That was a lot better than the icky corn tortilla, lol.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
Overall a good recipe. My husband said it was good, but a bit bland. I thought it was fine, but I was in the mood for something lighter. I think it really depends on your personal preference. I was surprised that my 2 year old ate it despite it having "green stuff" in it, lol. I did change a few things: added a diced tomato from the garden, used only 1 can of beans, and reduced the cayenne for the kids sake. I would make again, but might increase the amount of cumin, salt & pepper.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
This was good, but too salty. Also, I think the oil could be cut down a bit as there was a lot for the fish to "swim" in. Next time I make it I'm thinking that I'll omit the salt altogether and use salted butter instead of the oil, maybe a couple tablespoons. Otherwise really good!

Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This was really good and reminded me of restaurant style Teriyaki. The only change I made was I used gluten-free soy sauce. I made extra marinade and thickened it with corn starch on the stove, then served it on the side so people could add as much to the chicken, rice and veggies as they wanted. Without the extra sauce the chicken was good, but didn't have a strong flavor from the sauce (but I only marinaded it for about 3 hours.) One thing I noticed is that the oil was lighter than the rest of the sauce ingredients so it didn't seem to mix well; it kinda hung out at the top. Maybe I can cut back on the oil next time? Will definitely make again, and will try cutting the chicken into smaller pieces and then marinading.

Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This was really good, but I had to alter it a bit and I would change a few things for the future. I'm only giving this a 4 because some things didn't work as expected. I changed the recipe serving to 4 and used boneless chicken breasts instead. I sauteed the onions on medium, not on low as suggested because it was taking too much time. When it called for adding garlic I added 4 sliced fresh mushrooms, too. I tried thickening the sauce as stated, but it wasn't working. Therefore I used cornstarch to thicken the sauce. I found that the amount of sun-dried tomatoes made the sauce a bit too sweet for me so in the future I would maybe use 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup. The amount of sauce was a lot so in the future I would probably make this and put it over white rice. Otherwise cutting the sauce to half would probably work too. Overall it was really good!
