Sweet Sesame Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I was a little more excited about the thought of this recipe than its result. Still - it's solid, but with a few cautions. First - add the lime juice carefully and taste. You'll need more or less depending on how sweet your pineapple is. My pineapple was pretty tart, and the addition of lime juice (in that quantity) made the salsa a little too sour. Also, a little seasoning is in order. Salt and pepper the filets before pressing in the seeds. Otherwise, it's a solid recipe and very light.

Orzo with Kale

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
This is a great recipe - the yellow orzo is beautiful. I thought the pasta-to-veg ratio was a little skewed to the pasta-side for my own taste. The second time I made it I used only half the orzo and added some halved grape tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. The splash of red made for a very colourful side dish!

Easy Garlic Ginger Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Even with half the limes as someone suggested it was too... limey. Maybe it's just my taste, but this wasn't as exciting as it sounded. Sorry!

Scott Ure's Clams And Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Splendid recipe - the broth was sooo flavourful. I'd never cooked whole clams before, so didn't know how long they might take to open. My littleneck clams took about 5 minutes. I should have added the butter around the 3-min mark, I think. My only other recommendation is to have wine for the sauce AND for the cook. But I bet most of you already know that. ;)

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
These burgers are excellent! I couldn't bear to fry these healthy burgers in oil. Instead I put them in the oven on a sprayed cookie sheet for 7-10 minutes each side at 400 degrees. Turned out great!

Cran-Dandy Cooler

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
This is good! And easy! The splash of cherry juice gives the whole thing a nice color.

Amazing Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This is a great basic recipe for a quick lunch/snack, and soooo easy to make! Like others, I added a few more ingredients to the mix. A can of red kidney beans, and handful of shredded spinach, and some wild rice mixed in make for a complete meal in a bowl. I also swapped the cranberries for fresh black seedless grapes a couple of times, which was awesome too. Thanks for the recipe SUZANNEHENDRIX. :)

Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
This is a very good recipe and comes together quickly! I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand so I marinated cubed chicken breasts in greek salad dressing then grilled them. Deeelish! I agree, too, with others who suggest cutting the orzo by half.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Awesome filling. I whiz the whole mixture in my food processor to get a great texture. To fill the shells easily, scoop all of the filling mixture into a zipper bag. Just snip the tip off one corner of the bag and squeeze the mixture out of the hole into the shells. Much tidier!

Indian Saffron Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Excellent recipe. I topped each serving with a light sprinkle of cinnamon and toasted pine nuts as they do in a local restaurant. Scrumptious!

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Loved the pistachios, and the cookies make a colorful addition to a coffe-themed gift basket.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Excellent recipe! For a lower-sodium version, I make refried beans from dry beans, and use homemade chili (again with dry beans) for the sauce. It's a little extra effort, but worth it if you have to watch your sodium intake.

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
While some reviewers have noted a lack of flavor, I think this recipe makes a good substite for deep-fried fish (which doesn't have much seasoning). We enjoy it, and it's become a low-fat staple in our home.

Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Quick, easy and yummy. I took a cue from a couple of other reviews and added some light smoked sausage - still only 90 calories per cup!
