Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2014
The topping was delicious, and this dish is easy to prepare. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because salmon is my favorite fish, and I have other recipes that I feel allow its flavor to shine. My kids loved this though. Thanks!

Carrot Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I needed a dairy free casserole, and this fit the bill. I cooked the carrots with a little water in the microwave until nearly done, then added the squash (little more water) and all the seasonings and finished them, with the addition of a bit more herbs since one reviewer indicated that it needed something. I then stirred in the mayo and proceeded as directed. My family loved it, but I thought the mayo flavor was a bit overpowering....would like something more savory. I'll make again and play with the flavors. Thanks for a great starter recipe!

Pan Seared Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
A little too crusty on the outside for me, and I did feel that it was a bit better with some extra seasoning (rosemary and garlic - nearly burned the garlic), but it was a great starting recipe. I kept the heat on medium high, and removed the thinner portion at the recommended time. I then covered the thicker piece and cooked an extra minute. Delicious - thanks!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
A big hit with everyone in the house, and that's saying something. My teen would have preferred them fried, but they are so much healthier this way that I wouldn't change a thing. I used two BIG potatoes and cut them in sixths or smaller. I left one unpeeled and used paprika, adding garlic salt and rosemary per others' suggestions. The other potato I peeled (then had to use quickly, as it seemed to want to turn brown), and used brown sugar and a little garlic salt. Some of my family preferred them this way, although I liked the savory ones better. Microwaving them about 3 minutes before slicing made them easier to slice but a bit messy in a couple of places due to being too soft to handle well...will probably skip this next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Super Simple Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
Have to echo the others...5 stars for easy, elegant, and delicious! My salmon was a thick center cut, so I had to turn down the heat and cook a little longer for doneness. I used sea salt, and a bit less based on recommendations. Also used half olive oil and half butter. I started serving from the thinner side while the thicker side finished, and I had a hard time not wolfing mine down right at the stove. Thanks so much!

Spaghetti Sauce III

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
My husband isn't Italian, but he always liked it when I made spaghetti with his mom's homemade sauce....until I lost her recipe. He pronounced this version very good. High praise indeed. It's by far the simplest recipe I've found that we like. The only thing I changed was to cut up the stewed tomatoes with kitchen shears...oh, and was out of dried basil so I used fresh from the garden. If you like your sauce meaty, as my hubby does, no other changes are recommended. I personally might add a bit more tomato paste. Thanks for submitting!

Blueberry and Raspberry Pancake Topping

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
Love how easy this is; it was a nice (healthier) change from syrup for my French toast! Fresh blueberries were all the fruit I had, and I did think it was better with the addition of a little lemon juice - likely not necessary if raspberries are included - as well as some almond extract and cinnamon. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Made this exactly as written, except for slicing the carrots into fairly thin coins. I didn't have 8 hours to cook it, so I cooked it for 6 hours with a combination of high and low heats, mostly high. Everyone enjoyed it and the veggies were a perfect texture. I wish that I had made the creamy horseradish sauce recommended here by others; I think it would have been great. Thanks for the recipe!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This was easy and flavorful. I felt that the balsamic vinegar was a bit strong, next time would reduce the amount slightly and/or add a little brown sugar. However, it was moist and yummy - thanks!!

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Hubby loves this one. Don't overcook! Edited to add: I've made this recipe a dozen times now, and it's my go-to quick dinner. Throw rice in the cooker (or pasta in a pot), start the chicken, and both are done by the time I make the salad and heat the other sides. I typically don't change anything, but if I want extra sauce I increase the wine, with or without some chicken broth. Reliable and quick - what's not to love? Thanks!!

Semi-Homemade Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I assume this would have been 5 stars if I had followed the recipe exactly! My kids did the shopping for me and got the Stove Top stuffing mix, and I just went with it. Liking softer stuffing, I used about 48 ounces of chicken broth, and it seemed too soft so I left it in the oven at least 20 extra minutes and it ended up with a pretty good texture but a slightly burned flavor. Will try again with the bagged stuffing mix and I'll bet it will be great.

Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
Really easy and a nice flavor. Our family consensus was that it needed the addition of a bit of tomato sauce (even my husband, who likes his spaghetti sauce to be meaty "like chili"). I could double or triple this and have freezer meals at hand. Thanks!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I gave this recipe 5 stars because I think it would be great as written; I was looking for a recipe I could modify to be non-dairy and this was pretty good. I used Almond milk, Smart Balance butter, and added almost 1/4 cup sugar (to our taste). These were fairly easy to handle, although didn't flip too easily, and the taste/texture were ok with our toppings. Maybe less melted butter next time, since I needed plenty in the skillet to prevent sticking. Thanks!

Summertime Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Delish and moist tilapia! Couldn't find a shallot, so used onion, and used a tiny bit of cooking wine since I had no tequila, but kept everything else the same. A forgiving recipe and I think it would be good on other fish and maybe poultry? Thanks!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This is an easy and customizing-friendly recipe. I give it 4 and 1/2 as written, and 5 with the addition of a seasoning rub on the roast before browning, and beef broth instead of water. Sodium count admittedly goes up quite a bit with this version. Thanks for a yummy family dinner!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
All I can say is, this is IT! We love salmon and have been searching for the perfect recipe. I did the foil packets since we don't have a grill, and it was delicious! Extra stars for ease of preparation too. Thank you!

Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
I love it for the ease and the handy ingredients. I've used it with breasts and cutlets (with modified cooking times) and it turns out flavorful. I boil the marinade and pour it on the chicken and the rice or potatoes. It was just a bit too sweet to be a favorite for some family members, but when I cook it on a weeknight it gets devoured! Thanks!

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This was much better than the only other vegetarian chili recipe I've tried. I think the chipotle pepper added depth and warmth. I left out the jalapeno to suit my family's taste. I also had to leave out the red and green peppers, since my hubby can't eat them, so I should have added something else...Mexican chili powder maybe? I also think an 8-oz. can of tomato sauce and a can of sliced carrots would be great, but that's a matter of taste. Despite the quibbles, I'm giving it 5 stars for introducing me to my favorite new product: quinoa! Thanks for the recipe!
