Apple Curry Turkey Pita

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
Phenomenal! I used canned chicken intentionally to make this simple to make for sandwiches to carry to work. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. What a great sandwich! Thank you.

Eggplant, Zucchini and Sweet Red Pepper Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I added chicken and used dried basil in place of fresh (used 4 teaspoons). Overall, I think this is a sincerely solid dish. I'm glad I added chicken as it tasted great and added some texture to a dish that is otherwise very mushy. I did cut the zucchini in larger chunks, which helped, but I will add the eggplant to the pan a little later in the process next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Springtime Asparagus and Parmesan Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Absolute love. Wouldn't have thought to do this, but will be repeating frequently. I used a chevre gouda instead of the Parm and it was terrific. Can't wait for tomorrow lunch with the leftovers.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This shouldn't be as delicious as it is considering how little work goes into it, but I'm going to be eating a LOT of this through the winter. Nicely done!

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Great Mardi Gras dinner slathered in a generous seasoning of Frank's Red Hot. Used ground pork instead of beef, chicken bouillon in place of beef, and also added some smoked sausage. Will start dinner earlier next time so I can use a lot more bell pepper, but love the simplicity and relative quickness. Oh, used Emeril's Essence as seasoned salt, too. Great idea!

Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Straight-up fantastico! Didn't take nearly 50 minutes, but I chop fast. Didn't have fresh corn, but look forward to the first crop. Served on the side of a slow cooker Cochinita Pibil with some tortillas. Will be eating a lot of this over the summer. Thanks!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Great googly moogly. Love this recipe. Okay, so I left out the sausage, subbed golden beets (assuming red were preferred), left out the garlic and used a can of tomatoes with chilies in place of plain diced. Definitely not Ukranian by the time I got finished, but I'm sure were I to offer it to someone who spoke Ukranian, they'd be okay with it.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
Got near to completion of making this recipe and then came to the realization that we did not have cashews or any other nuts in the house, excepting a bag of salted, in-shell peanuts. My improv was to cut some going-stale pretzel sticks into small chunks and use them instead. Probably not as good, but definitely good enough. Wait, I also had no soy and used instead Worcestershire. Why that seemed immaterial, I know not, but it was perfect.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
The five-star rating is for the inspiration. I'd never have thought of making this had I not come across this recipe. However, like many, I did make my own changes to give it more flavor. I added cinnamon, cloves, and crushed red pepper and increased the chili powder significantly. I also doubled the garlic just because I felt like it and added thinly sliced zucchini for more bulk. I found that the soup was very versatile and handled the changes and additions very well. Have fun with this recipe and make it your own. Oh, and the flavors definitely do get more intense with time. Lovely!

Avocado Watermelon Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Update: I DID put some feta into this salad and was glad I did. I think I need to use less dressing. I want the flavor of the dressing, but only just. Really, the rest of the ingredients are nearly enough... This gets five from me for sheer brilliance. We made this because everything in it is a favorite food item, though we'd never have thought to throw them all together. Once we did, we weren't sure how good it would be, but we were very, very pleased and can't wait to make it again. Though, next time, I'm determined to crumble some feta cheese over it as well.

Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Sensacional! There must be some old-world mysticism at work here. The whole is far greater than the sum of all the parts. Fifteen minutes into cooking, my kitchen smelled of magic and wonder. The anticipation only made the actual ingestion that much sweeter. Well done Scotty and thank you. I owe your family members a few bottles of Vinho Verde! Obrigado!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Just add another positive review to the pile. If I had anything negative to say, it would be about the high amount of sugar in the dressing. I might cut that down or sub it with some honey or something next time.

Spring Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
Made this again today. Due to a soy issue, I used Worcestershire in its place. It's still good. I've also used fish sauce which freaks some people out unless they aren't told before they eat it.

Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Ridiculously easy and quick. Perfect for a light dinner. In fairness, I was being super lazy and impatient and left out the onion, so it was flavored only by the salt, cumin and garlic, but I loved it. Spooned it on small pieces of crusty baguette. Couldn't be more pleased with adding this one to the make-dinner-fast arsenal.

Trinidad Pelau

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I had to use kidney beans in place of the pigeon peas, but otherwise made this to spec. It's unbelievably simple and good. I look forward to enjoying this for many meals to come. Nice recipe!
