Lighter Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
I have tried my share of "lighter" alfredos and this one definitely takes the cake! I had my reservations about chicken broth, no butter, and egg yolks (?!) but gave it a try anyway. I'm so glad I did. I used half and half instead of heavy cream because it's what I had on hand (and it makes me feel slightly less guilty in the fat content dept.) My only complaint is that it is thin, although half and half probably contributed to this. Even still it was absolutely delicious and will make again and again!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
We have had this for dinner weekly and sometimes twice a week since discovering the recipe... served to guests too! The flavors just work together. It's that simple. And it's perfect especially for busy weeknights. Serve Chipotle style with cilantro-lime rice, black beans, queso dip, guac, etc. to fancy it up a bit. Really good!!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
I've made focaccia by hand (which takes 2 days) and this recipe is *just as good* in 1/8 of the time! Omitted garlic, subbed 1 c whole wheat flour, will increase salt to 1 t., and oiled bottom of pan. Will make again and again!

Juicy Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Exceptional! Moist, juicy (no more dry turkey burgers!) and SO flavorful. Another reviewer called these 'mild'; sage is not what I consider mild so unless you love sage, suggest to decrease to 1 t. Sub'd breadcrumbs for cooked quinoa and added a handful of fesh baby spinach (shredded) b/c I had it on hand to use. Divine on a sesame bun!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I hate to review *just the batter*, but after the thick, puffy, and just plain to die for results of the batterd fish I had to! 5 stars. Will definately try complete recipe later.

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I ran out of liquids at 5 cups and because I prefer my risotto especially creamy, I'll be better prepared to have at least 6 cups if not more on hand. I suggest dicing tomatoes so you get some with every bite! Halved mozzarella. A nice, rich dish to accompany fish or chicken.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This was perfect for a girl who doesn't *really* know what spanish rice tastes like! Added 1/2 t cumin and sub chix broth as others suggested. Perfect side with tacos and refined beans. I do like it saucier so I may add can of tomato sauce and decrease chicken broth (not water!) by 1/4 c. Delish!

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I wanted to love this b/c it was so easy and ingredients are easily found... and I did! I used 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 cup water, and 2 t chili powder + 1/2 t cumin (sub for taco seasoning); also added 2t chili pwd + 1/2 t cumin to 1 small can of refried beans. A layer that I don't think is optional. I'm not sure if the ricotta and egg add anything so I might try ommitting it and replace it with cheese. Update: leftovers resulted in soggy tortillas. I'm going to blame the ricotta. Will definately opt for layer of cheese instead of ricotta & egg.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I used 3/4 c brown sugar based on others who said it was too sweet; used 4 large apples and combined them with cinn & sugar (add pecans or walnuts!). Turned out perfectly; I'm going for seconds right now!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Oh. My. Gosh. This was sooo good. I'm only sorry I didn't discover corned beef and how easy it is to cook sooner! Halved the recipe minus the peppercorns; came out tender and delicious. I'm going to sneak another bite right now!

Challah I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I'm not a baker, but this recipe made me look like a pro. I unashamedly admit that I nearly ate the whole loaf. I was initially worried that the flour started clumping when adding to liquid, but it was fine. I used my Kitchen Aid, but put it away prematurely - after initial rise, will knead one by hand and one with Kitchen Aid next time. I baked my first loaf for 28 min and it was almost burnt; the second for just under 20 min. The second loaf TRUMPED the first. DO NOT BAKE FOR RECOMMENDED TIME!!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
My husband l-o-v-e-d this recipe ("dinner from heaven"); there's just something addicting about it! I loved it for its change of pace vs. the ordinary side dish fare. I only used a 1/2 pkg of spinach, which was plenty and subbed pine nuts for walnuts and parm for feta. Delish!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
What a great way to dress up broccoli. This is very good! I used 4 T butter and could have even gotten away with less. I will thicken sauce next time OR serve over rice to soak up the deliciousness at the bottom of the serving bowl. YUM!

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I just had Pasa e Fagioli at the Olive Garden and HAD to duplicate it at home. I halved this recipe, but used even less hamburger (1/2 lb.). Added one or two carrots, chopped and sauteed with onion. I didn't simmer it for an hour nor did I bother with the simmer time in between hamburger/beans/pasta. Just threw it all in there and it was delicious!

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
I loved this dish! I eliminated the liquids from both the artichokes and capers and omitted the wine because I didn't have any. Super impressive and crazy good. Note: focus on getting the chicken brown and not limiting yourself to two minutes. Mine took longer.

Avocado Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I do not care for traditional Tzatsiki made with yogurt. We frequent a small Greek spot here in Omaha and I love their Tzatziki so I figured it was sour cream and NOT yogurt... and now I can make it myself with this recipe! It's insanely delicious!! Mmmmmmmm!

Chocolate-Zucchini Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
These are chocolatel-y good! Doubled chocolate like everyone else (any less and chocolate flavor would be weak) and used 3/4c applesauce + 1/4c oil. Shockingly delicious! Will frost with Rich Chocolate Frosting from this site. Perfect birthday cupcake! The flecks of zucchini will totally go unnoticed!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Wow! Surprisingly delicious - light, crispy, and really good for you! I didn't even feel bad using syrup b/c they were so good for me. (I love syrup despite the sugar content!) Great idea from other reviewer about adding mashed fruit/sweet potato for more variations.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I substituted 1% milk since no buttermilk on hand; accidentally melted the butter instead of cutting in; used 2 1/2 T butter in recipe and Pam to coat pan. The batter was thin like others said it would be, but pancakes turned out great! I may add oats next time as another reviewer suggested.
