Whole Grain Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes, Marinated Chicken Breast and Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I agree with many reviewers about it needing something - I added more pesto and that helped (I make my own pesto with fresh basil and I think that has a stronger flavor so that might also have helped). I added pine nuts for a little crunch. I will make again as it was easy and pretty healthy.

Blue Cheese Chipotle Venison Burgers

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
mmm, flavorful, moist and very spicy! I did add a bit of extra adobo sauce to the burger mix, and instead of banana peppers, I used some canned mixed hot peppers to the onion mix. I wasn't convinced the spicy and blue cheese would be a hit, but it definitely was great. We cooked these a little rare, and I didn't use quite as much blue cheese. Oh, and made them into 8 patties - they would have been huge otherwise.

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
this is awesome. I love quinoa but have trouble finding really good recipes other than my standard pesto quinoa that I found on this site. This one is now my #2 go to. So easy and quick! I cut down on the cheese - it's quite a lot.

Gnocchi with Cherry Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
not too bad - easy and tasty. I used yellow grape tomatoes (which were super sweet). I agree with Michelle - the olives really make it.

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
pretty good! I followed Linda's review and roasted the sprouts and onions. I undercooked them a bit and they were delicious.

Impossibly Easy Ham and Asparagus Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
Very very good! I made it exactly as written except for omitting the ham. It would be very easy to substitute various veggies and meats but it was great with just the swiss cheese and asparagus. It did take a bit longer to bake, but was super easy and I'm glad it made a large pan so I have leftovers!

Simple Greek Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Pretty good and very easy. I used whole wheat couscous, and didn't have sundried tomatoes (although i'm sure they would be awesome in this recipe). I just used some fresh tomato, and then added oregano and basil, along with a little EVOO. Will definitely be making this fast dish again.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
This was pretty good - definitely super moist (almost too much so). I substituted one cup of whole wheat flour, used vanilla fat free greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. Next time I might try to substitude applesauce for half the butter, or just cut the butter down a bit. The can of oranges I opened were huge slices, so I cut them into each into three pieces. Next time, I might add nuts, or some type of crumb topping.

Sausage and Vegetable Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
This was great - although next time I definitely won't use the added oil - the sausage was plenty greasy to cook the onions. Also didn't have arborio rice so used brown instead, knowing it wouldn't get to the creamy consistency of risotto, but that was ok. Still turned out to be a great meal (even with canned asparagus since I didn't have fresh)l.

Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
I made this exactly as specified - very disappointing. We love sprouts but this one was definitely not a keeper.

Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
We made this as a really fast side dish. Didn't have parmesan but subbed asiago as anothe reviewer recommended and it was very good. Didn't use nearly as much butter as it called for (about 1/3). Added a few TB of water to help steam the sprouts. Will definitely make again.

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Easy and delicious. Be careful not to cook the brussels sprouts too long or they will get mushy. I also used water instead of additional fat in the cooking.

Margarita Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Excellent - we used HUGE shrimp (8 per pound) and I was a little worried the marinade would overpower the shrimp. We grilled them and served along with bacon-wrapped filet for a surf and turf Valentine's dinner. Perfection.

yummy and easy! I made them smaller than called for (Christmas cookies should be small so you can have different kinds! :)).

Mini Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Very very good - I made 2 and 2/3 batch (because that's how many chips I had) and used all butter, 1 stick margarine. was nervous as I've not had a lot of luck with shortbread BUT this dough was awesome to work with. We ended up though creating 4 times the number of cookies called for - if we had made it according to the directions the cookie logs would have been way too big. The end result was thumb-sized cookies. Because there were so many more cookies I was worried we didn't have enough of the melted chocolate so instead of dipping, just put the melted chocolate in a bag, snipped the end and drizzled. Much faster, same taste. I'm actually glad we didn't dip - might have been too chocolatey. Also, next time might use just a bit fewer chips in the dough - there are a LOT. But overall, delicious, easy and will probably be one of my Christmas standards from now on.
