Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This recipe was the basic idea of what I wanted so I took recommendations from other reviewers. I did not want to eat the skin so I peeled and thinly sliced 1 large Yam, more than enough for 2 people. I also used a plastic bag to shake the ingredients. You can use your own preferred spices. I copied another reviewer who used cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar. Don't forget the olive oil. I was light on the olive oil and mine were a little dry. I think a good coating will help with that next time. Since I cut mine thin, I reduced the cooking time down to 20 min. which I found to be a definite time saver. They probably could have been checked at 15 min. Since yams are so good for you and my boyfriend liked them I will be making them again. I may alter it and try new spices just to see what I'm missing. Like garlic and paprika.

Mediterranean Lamb Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
This Lamb burger has wonderful flavors. I bought every condiment in the recipe except green tomato, the store was out of those so I used red. I made a Tzatziki Sauce on this site to use on the burger rather than the plain yogurt,garlic and lemon sauce listed. I think it was just the right compliment to the lamb. It took a little longer to make the Tzatziki from scratch but worth it. Make it a day ahead and refrigerate. I also froze my leftover patties. A tasty sandwich but a mouthful and can be messy.

Grilled Chicken Salad Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
I tried this recipe to use up leftover ingredients, I had a leek, tomatoes, yellow cheddar cheese and 1 piece of chicken. It seemed the right fit and it turned out to be a delicious sandwich. I followed the directions but added cut up cooked chicken and diced the tomatoes then tossed it all together with Hellman's Mayo before spreading it on whole wheat bread because that's what we had. Added the cheese and grilled. We did not find this to be too rich but just right. I did not need to sauté the leeks like other reviewers since they were all mixed in with the chicken, tomatoes and mayo. Just make sure you cut them small enough and they won't bother you raw. A unique, but worth a try recipe.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Excellent as written, a wonderful spinach salad. I used baby spinach, it is easy to work with and tastes great. You can buy sesame seeds already toasted. I used shelled almonds rather than slivered for a heartier crunch and toasted them the same way. I did toast more than I needed the first time and I found I could freeze the leftovers. It made it so much easier the next time I wanted to make a simple side dish with dinner or light lunch. I didn't have to take all that extra time to toast the almonds again. When making the dressing I minced fresh onions not dried. With a spinach salad dressing poppy seeds are a must, I would not eliminate them if at all possible. I have refrigerated this dressing and used it all week without effecting it's flavor.
