Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
This was okay. Maybe my fish wasn't high enough quality? This just didn't have much of a punch to it.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
Looking at this recipe I wouldn't guess that it's what Greek dressing is, but it IS... and it's SO good. Has a nice kick to it. As for how I followed the recipe, I estimated everything by eye. Definitely included a little less vinegar.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
Yum! This came out so well. The phyllo dough is totally finnicky, but who cares if the internal layers look perfect? It looked great, it tasted great. I brushed with butter, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

Salmon Rosemary Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
These were nice. I liked using fresh salmon and rosemary. Ultimately, I feel that they were "nice" and would happily eat them again, but will in no way be racing to make them again.

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Yowza. These were awesome. My only sadness is that I didn't make more of them, such that I had leftovers. They were punchy, crisp, and deep with flavor. I didn't have fresh garlic so I used garlic powder, and I didn't bother with the steaming, but otherwise followed it exactly. Cannot wait to make this again!

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
Delicious! Very forgiving, easy recipe. For the sauce, I mixed sugar, vinegar, and hoisin sauce. It tasted gorgeous!

Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
This was nice! I didn't include the Italian dressing. I made it for a side with the Spinach Enchiladas dish. Very fresh!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
LOVED these. Very easy to make, very tasty. Baked them in two pyrex dishes (5 enchiladas in each). Made with the Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce and the Black Bean Salad.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
These were great! I loved the mix of everything and followed the recipe except for two pieces: (1) I used fresh garlic, (2) I used half a small onion. These were still quite heavy on the onion, so next time I think I'll use a quarter of an onion and mince it into impossibly tiny pieces.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
I made this sauce to go with the "Oregon Salmon Patties." It did its job, but I found it to be a little too thick. I felt like I was eating mayonnaise.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
These were quite good. I'd happily make them again (if I can find canned salmon that's not as disturbing--a word on that later). The spicing was nice, the flavors nice, everything. I did bake instead of fry them (10 minutes each side at 350F), and I used dijon mustard instead of dry mustard. Regarding the disturbing salmon, this was my first time buying canned salmon. It was FILLED with bones, and the actual spine with vertebrae. It was annoying to pick out, and I was actually really grossed out by the vertebrae. I don't think I could make this again if it meant having to sort the salmon again.. so maybe there's canned salmon out there that is skinless and boneless like canned tuna? Obviously not a comment on the recipe, but just a note in case there are other first-time canned salmon buyers out there.

Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
This came out beautifully! I browned the chicken in a dutch oven, then tossed in everything else (minus the tomato paste, which I didn't have, and the eggplant, which I detest with a fiery passion) and cooked over low-medium for a few hours. Chicken was flavorful and moist! We had this over M'hamsa couscous and loved it. The leftovers were equally tasty.

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
This was my first time making gnocchi. It was easy to make, and I enjoyed the process, but overall these didn't have much taste. I did like the sauce.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
I don't know what I messed up here, but I must have messed it up badly because everyone else seems to like this. I was expecting tender, flavorful vegetables. They were still pretty hard and not that tasty.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I went to flip these half-way, at 22 minutes. They tasted good, but I figured there was no way they were done in so short a time. I put them back in, and 10 minutes later decided my own logic was stupid. At that point, they had started to burn. These are NOT good burnt. All of the spicing gets really dusty and thick. I'd happily try them again, as that quick taste I did at 22 minutes in was fine. Even then, though, not as good as just potatoes with rosemary.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
These were fun! I mixed everything in a food processor and let it sit out a little for the bread crumbs to soak up the water. The burgers fell apart the tiniest bit after baking them, but they were great. Pretty mushy, but very tasty. I made some extras to freeze, and look forward to enjoying them in the weeks to come.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I don't understand why this is so delicious, but it is. I used a little less butter than recommended, and subbed 1 potato for the celery.

Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
This was okay. No one was really wowed by it the way we've been wowed by kheer in Indian restaurants. Maybe it wasn't sweet enough?

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
Delicious! I packed this with a few extras, like garbanzo beans. Such a nice flavor, such a richness. I made this for a dinner and everyone had great things to say!
