Tilapia Pitas

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I thought the tilapia was very tasty but I wasn't crazy about the sauce. I think the anchovy made it too fishy and salty. I would recommend leaving that out to anyone who chooses to use this recipe though I probably wouldn't make it again.

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This was okay, but I didn't think it was anything all that special. I know a lot of people really loved it but I wasn't that impressed. It wasn't bad but I can't help feeling like I wasted a ton of tomatoes.

Appalachian Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. The ingredient list is so simple I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I am actually not a very big fan of coleslaws and am very picky as to how they're prepared. I couldn't get enough of this - I almost ate a whole bowl by itself. If I was going to change anything I would probably use less salt next time.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I didn't think these were that great. I have to agree with a few people that the temp and time are off because mine came out a little burnt as well but still salvageable. Despite that I didn't think the seasoning was all that fabulous. I would recommend adding salt to anyone considering making this though I don't think I'd make these again.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I loved this rice! I could almost eat it by itself. I did increase the amount of juiced used to the juice from 1 1/2 limes. Very very tasty and very very simple!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I thought this was good but I think the next time I make it I'm going to tweak the recipe a but. I did as others had suggested and increased the lime and honey but I still felt the lime was a little understated so I may try increasing it again next time. I also think I may try baking/broiling it so I can save the sauce to plate with the chicken to enhance the flavor. The people I served it to thought it was very good but I felt it could have used a little more oomph!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Oh wow!!! This was AMAZING! I love food that makes my mouth happy! I don't even know where to start! The veggies and caramelized onions, with the warm crunchy grilled bread , and the tangy aioli and feta. The flavors melded together beautifully! Definitely a new favorite. It was also very easy to prepare! Loved it!

Swan's Summer Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I was also surprised at how tasty this recipe was. It was actually my first time trying a cold soup but I really enjoyed it. I also added some hot sauce to give it a little kick. Would definitely make again!

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I thought this wasn't bad but I didn't think it was fantastic. It's a fast and easy way to prepare some tilapia but I can think of a lot more flavorful ways fix it. I might make it again for myself and tweak the recipe a bit but if I was having company I probably wouldn't opt to use this recipe.

Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
I thought this was a pretty good recipe but I did make some changes. I added 2 additional cloves of garlic and about 3T of soy sauce during cooking. My friends and I thought that the flavor of the carrots was too much and if I make this again would either leave them out completely or use only 1 carrot and shred it instead of slice it. But in general I thought this was an enjoyable recipe and good side dish.

Caramel Brownies II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
OMG! These are so amazing! It actually didn't take me as long as some other people to melt the caramel. But I did use a large pan which distributes the heat over a larger area so maybe that's why it melted faster. I brought them to work and everybody said they were KILLER delicious!! I wouldn't change a thing!

Hawaiian Pork Hash

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This was delicious!!! I made these for a party I was catering and people couldn't stop raving about them! I omitted the shrimp and doubled the pork due to some people's food allergies but they were still fabulous! Will definitely make again!

Creamy Dill Salmon Steaks

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
I wasn't too crazy about this recipe. To me the sauce was overpowered by the dill and didn't enhance the flavor of the fish very well. I found the taste improved with sauteed garlic, fresh ground pepper and rosemary. Although I found that out by accident as I made garlic rosemary potatoes and when I mixed the two while eating I found I enjoyed it much more.
