Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2015
The dressing was awesome, I used corn tortillas and grilled them first. I have also made this with whole frozen fish fillets that had a crispy crust (fish sticks) and it was passable in a hurry... Nice recipe to rotate through family dinners - my kids enjoyed it with tartar sauce instead of the chipolte dressing

Steak Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2015
This was pretty good. Maybe with a better cut of meat it could be "Steak Soup", it tasted more like beef stew.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2015
Very nice. Made as written and it turned out great. The filling could also easily be mixed with some more tomato and some cooked pasta with a little cheese for an Italian meal.

Stuffed Peppers with Quinoa

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
I am sure I added much more than the recipe called for but it was fabulous. I added cayenne pepper, black olives, dried up French bread cubes, spinach, corn...

Black Bean and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
Made as directed. It was edible but nothing fantastic. Too much sweetness.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
made as directed. The only suggestion I would make is to not spread the caramel all the way to the edges of the brownie before dumping the cheesecake mixture on it - maybe even making a moat. I found that the outside edges were quite hard and chewy due to the caramel baking to the sides of the pan. Most certainly did not see the caramel layer once cut but it was still a winner

Zucchini Boats on the Grill

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I did not add the jalapenos because I wanted my kids to eat it - they weren't impressed. I did not boil the zucchini - I shallowly hollowed out the zucchini and sprinkled salt then rubbed the outside with olive oil. I did not add much of the zucchini pulp to the filling and I had no problem with it being too wet. The bread I used I left out for a few hours so it was dry. Overall it was a nice side dish and it would be easy to modify the fillings.

Sea Salt Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
This was a pretty good side dish - I wish I would have had maple syrup - used some syrup that no one liked on pancakes because it wasn't sweet enough - it was perfect for the potatoes. Forgot the nuts...

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
I loved these but my husband was not a fan. I made a mistake in blending the sweet potatoes and also blending the kidney beans - so the end result was too smooth. I did not add all the water - and slow cooked the beans for quite a while until it was the consistency of re-fried beans. I froze the remainder of the burritos and took one out for a quick lunch. Very good.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
My family enjoyed this recipe. I put 1/4 of the shells in a separate pan and cooked them without the taco sauce because a few of the kids don't like sauce. I did not toss the shells in butter and used more seasoning than called for. I also ended up using more cream cheese,

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
This recipe was ok - the end result was kind of oily though. It was also kind of wet. I didn't add the whole amount of potatoes - maybe that is why. Overall not bad but could have had some additions to improve flavor and texture.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
very good as written. Wishing I would have put a little more seasoning in the flour mixture. I think next time I will do 2 parts hot sauce to 1 part butter. Not quite hot enough. Used Franks hot sauce. I may try baking it next time too.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
I liked this recipe. The taste was good. My kids thought that the sweet potatoes was cheese - so I didn't correct them. My only complaint was that they were kind of dry. Without the sour cream they would have been too dry. I did flatten them pretty thinly but I am wondering if cooking them in a no stick pan would work better. Also - don't make them too far in advance.

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
I wanted to like it. Wasn't bad but not awesome either. I followed the recipe. People, please don't rate a recipe awesome or horrible if you change almost everything about it. Going through the reviews to see if I wanted to make it or not was frustrating. I often tweak a recipe to suit my familys tastes, but if you change everything about the recipe except you baked it - then reviewing it is kind of silly...If that is the case - just save the recipe with your changes. But don't review it
