Reviewed Warm Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds

Friday, Jul 19, 2013 on Cooking Channel

"I usually love Melissa's recipes but I'm afraid this one was not a winner at our house. We like quinoa and all the dressing ingredients but there just wasn't enough flavor. I even doubled the dressing ingredients when I realized there wasn't enough to cover this amount of quinoa but it didn't help. This was just kind of bland. What saved this was "

Reviewed 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Saturday, Jun 9, 2012 on Food.com

"I've tried other microwave mug chocolate cake recipes and they have been pretty bad. I was sure I would never bother tying it again but I saw that the ingredients in this recipe included an egg and realized this could improve the texture and moisture a lot. I've made this recipe a few times now - all without the chocolate chips since I don't have a..."

Reviewed Indian Spiced Grilled Chicken (South Beach Diet Phase 1)

Tuesday, Jun 5, 2012 on Food.com

"The marinade was quick to put together. I added about 1/2 tsp agave syrup just to counter the spiciness of the other flavors. I don't have an outdoor grill so I cooked it on my countertop electric grill. The yogurt helped to tenderize the chicken and it had a good, moist texture. The seasonings were good but there wasn't enough of them. I will make..."

Reviewed " South Beach" Stuffed Bell Peppers

Monday, Jun 4, 2012 on Food.com

"First off, I think the recipe needs to be revised because there is information and steps missing. It was not clear what kind of tomatoes to use (fresh? canned?) It tells us to cut the tops off the peppers but it never says to take out the seeds and membranes. And although worchestershire sauce was in the ingredient list the directions never told us..."

Reviewed Beefy Refried Bean Soup

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 on Food.com

"I had half a can of refried beans sitting in my fridge that needed to be used up and I was looking for a recipe that didn't call for tortillas since I'm trying to go low carb. This recipe fit that bill and I had all the ingredients on hand so I could make it for lunch today. I used a green pepper instead of a red one, I used red pepper flakes inste..."

Reviewed Crock Pot Chicken With Mushrooms and Leeks (Low Carb)

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 on Food.com

"I did not follow the instruction to leave the dairy products on the counter for the six hours it took the chicken to cook since that seemed like an invitation for food poisoning. It took nearly half hour to get all the ingredients chopped and ready to put in the crock pot. To slow down the cooking of the chicken to avoid it being overdone/dry, I pu..."

Reviewed Turkey Parmesan - South Beach Phase 1

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 on Food.com

"I'm not a big fan of turkey so I used chicken breasts instead. I butterflied then lightly pounded out my chicken breasts so that they would cook more evenly. The pine nut coating was very tasty on its own but did not stick to the chicken very well and most of it fell off during the frying. I think next time I would coat it and spray it with some co..."
