Southern as You Can Get Collard Greens

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I've always had the worst time making greens. However, this one came out amazin'! I cooked the ham hocks in the liquid for half an hour prior to adding the greens. I also added 1 tablespoon of sugar and half an onion(chopped). Came out quite tasty!

Speedy Raspberry Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I've been looking for a raspberry dressing/vinaigrette that used fresh raspberries for quite some time now. This one is a bit thick due to the ratio of olive oil to balsamic vinegar. I added a bit more balsamic (it's all up to your personal taste) and decided it needed a bit of sugar as it was pretty tart. I may look into adding some herbs but unsure what goes well with raspberries and balsamic vinegar at this point.

Pupusas de Queso (Cheese-Stuffed Tortillas)

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Added salt to the masa as well as some oil(next time I'm thinking manteca de puerco instead). The first few came out pretty dry(why we added the oil). Used queso cotija as one of the fillings, & another mixture of beans and chicharrones.

Janie's Amazing Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Very good! Couldn't taste the zucchini at all. Made a few changes tho': added one banana, used half mandarin/half orange juice, used honey instead of the other sweetener. I also used a bit of green powder(smoothie lacks protein & I didn't think regular protein powder would taste well), I wouldn't recommend it for people who are new to it--it's definitely an acquired taste. Also, I wouldn't add the vanilla extract next time--it wasn't a bad addition, I just felt it didn't need it. This smoothie is great, talk about getting at least 2 servings of veggies & 2 servings of fruit(if you add the banana). I'll definitely make this again.

Raspberry Margaritas

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
WOW! Absolutely yummy! Had no Grand Marnier®, so I used Triple Sec instead. I also used fresh raspberries and I must say it's a great drink.

Soft Zucchini Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Cake-like cookies. Followed the recipe to the T, good cookies, next time I think I'll add more zucchini & maybe increase the spices.

Caesar Salad Croutons

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Didn't add the "ghee" although I did think of adding regular butter, but they were very good without either. I used 2 tb of olive oil and .5 tb of rosemary infused olive oil. I then added dry Greek herb seasoning to the oil mixture. I tossed the bread(used a day-old baguette, no need for toasting) in and baked them on a cookie sheet at 350 for maybe 10 minutes.

Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
They're definitely good. The pancakes were not thin at all. I had never tried strawberry pancakes and I'll definitely be making them again. I did adjust the recipe, when I added the egg I made sure to beat it pretty well(helped the pancakes not be so thin?), 1/4 tp salt and 3 tb brown sugar(maybe 3.5 tb next time).

Cinnamon Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Very good! Sweet beets and the sugar/vinegar/cinnamon really helped to diminish the earthy beet taste. Also, the vinegar isn't that strong once this is ready to eat. I used fresh beets from my garden, just boiled 'em for an hour or so until they were tender.

Tofu Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Exceptional!! Very basic recipe yet the alterations can be endless. Ran out of curry powder(as suggested by one of the reviews), so added dill instead. Can't wait to try it with curry tho'. Also, used half of the mayo the recipe called for and replaced the other half with plain yogurt. I love tuna salad sandwiches but hate to have to wait so long between having them(due to amount of mercury in tuna), this will be a great replacement.

Wild Rice with Cranberries and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Very good! Everything ties together quite well. Next time I will definitely use less butter. Otherwise it's a great dish.

Emily's Super Eggplant Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Great way to use eggplant. Since Emeril's Eggplant & Gaahlic pasta sauce came out, I've been wondering how to make it myself. I made a few alterations tho': I prepped the eggplant by "sweating" it out with sea salt(see Eggplant Parmesan II review for instructions). When I added the canned tomatoes, I also added 1/2 cp of red wine, as well as oregano, fresh basil and fresh parsley(add these 3 to taste). I then allowed it all to simmer for an extra 20 minutes. May add carrots next time, I often use them in my regular pasta sauce--helps with the sweetness factor & you won't need to add sugar.

Egg Scramble

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Had an overflow of bordeaux spinach in the garden and thought this recipe would be great to try. Very good & healthy. Only change made to recipe is chopping up potato & sautéing with onion before adding garlic.

Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Absolutely the BEST hummus I've ever tasted! No alterations made. Took the author's suggestion of adding lemon juice according to one's preference. I'll definitely make this again! However, I would use a food processor instead of the blender. (on the garlic comment-when I have been to any Mediterranean restaurants, no garlic is added to the hummus)

Broiled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
The lobster tails I used definitely needed double the time the recipe called for. It depends on the size of the lobster tails. When melting the butter I threw in minced garlic to add flavor to the butter. I made sure to check the temperature until it hit 175°F. Everything else was followed as the recipe asked.

Asparagus Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
While I've never been a fan of seasoned salt OR canned asparagus, I thought I'd give this recipe a shot. I did use sauteed asparagus(in OO) and it came out very good! I was very surprised with the seasoning salt, added a tasty touch to the mayo. I didn't make the rolled sandwiches, but a regular sandwich. I also used a bit of lettuce in the sandwich as well.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Yet another Meatless Monday. These cakes are a tad on the "sweet" side. The recipe definitely needs something else to balance out the sweetness of the yam.

Broiled Grapefruit

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
I have a grapefruit tree and never seemed to finish off the fruit. I'm sure this won't be a problem anymore. I will definitely be adding this recipe to my breakfast food :) I did omit the butter as it wasn't really necessary. Grapefruit is good without it.

Apricot-Ginger Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Very good glaze. The vinegar adds a nice tanginess to the dish. I'm thinking I may use this with steamed carrots next time.
