Happy Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Never ever will I buy the pre-made rotisserie chicken again! This was my 1st time roasting a whole chicken so I was nervous but it turned out WONDERFULLY tasty and juicy. I added some thyme springs into cavity along with some quartered onions. I used coarse dijon mustard for the rub. I will try to salt & pepper under the skin and in cavity next time. Cooking time was about 20 min longer for me and I broiled for a teeny tiny bit at the end. Skin was crisp and the chicken was falling off the bone. Recipe is a major keeper.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Fantastic. This was my 1st time making lasagna and my bf said it was the best lasagna he's ever had! Thanks to the suggestions of others the dish couldn't have turned out any better. My adjustments. 1.) Whole wheat noodles, 2.) Sauteed fresh chopped garlic with onion before adding beef, added oregano and italian seasoning 3.) Added chopped/drained spinich to meat /sauce mixture 4.) Cheese mix: used 1/2 ricotta, 1/2 cottage cheese, 1lb mozzarella mixed all together with 1 egg. 5.) Baked covered with foil for 50 min, uncovered for 10 then broiled for a few minutes until cheese browned. (Used 2 (24.5 oz) jars Classico Mushroom & Olive tomato sauce..perfect b/c it had some mushroom in it!) Absolutely delicious!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
Excellent. I sub'd for a healthier dressing and was blown away by the result! I used coarse grain dijon mustard & nonfat plain greek yogurt. I've served the dressing on the side with herb crusted chicken & fish on separate occasions. So good!

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
oo lalala this meal was delish! Made this for xmas eve dinner and the scent of rosemary and garlic wafting from the meat was heavenly. The only thing I did different was to sear the loin before roasting. The outer layer was crisp while the inside was tender and juicy. All of my guests went for seconds and thirds. Thanks for the recipe!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
3.5 stars. I follwed recipe exactly and it turned out a bit dry. Frosting is delicious but the actual cupcake could have tasted better. I made 50 and people loved them but I personally wasn't wowed. Will try again with recomended changes.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Very good. I followed suggestions and cooked chicken in chicken broth, brushed crusts with egg white and prebaked the bottom shell for 5 min. Used low sodium broth but think I'll stick with regular next time and double the seasonings to the gravy. I added diced potatoes, corn, and cut green beans. Will make again and again!

Spicy Chicken Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Not bad. I like the spicy kick but I felt like something was missing...I added some garlic..maybe some green onions would have been nice. I used parsley but I'll try cilantro next time..

Pumpkin Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I had a 5 person Thanksgiving party this year and decided t try this recipe. Made stew in 5 small individual pumpkins and they were a HUGE HIT. I was nervous about how everything would turn out but I followed other's suggestions and it was such a success. A few notes.. 1.) Instead of 1 large 10-12 lbs pumpkin I used 5 small organic sugar pumpkins. Extends prep time but the presentation is amazing and your guests will be amazed! Rubbed pumpkin pie spice on inside of hallowed out pumpkin before pouring stew and baking. 2.) Additional ingredients: Sliced celery (adds flavor!), corn, cut green beans, & portabella mushroom. Very hearty. 3.) Reduced salt by 1/2 4.) Wet stems & cover with foil when bakiing. DO NOT overbake. I baked for only 1 hour 15 min. 5.) Sprinkled freshly grated Parmesean Reggiano and toasted spiced pumpkin seeds (collected from the pumpkins)on top of each stew right before serving. Comfort food, folks! Wonderful.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Easy to make and really tasty. I followed the recipe but also added chopped roasted zucchini, squash and lemon basil. I also used reduced fat feta and drizzled blasamic vinegar just before serving. I think I'll saute garlic with the spinich a bit before topping and baking next time. Such a light and delicious meal!

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Healthy and delicious.... this is an excellent recipe! I used: Fresh roma tomatoes, a mixture of lemon basil and regular basil, and quality kalamata olives. I tried to use all fresh ingredients. When seasoning with salt & pepper, I also added a touch of curry powder tossed with a cup of reduced fat feta and some whole wheat rotini pasta. AMAZING.

Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I used more fresh dill than orignally called for and fat-free sour cream, light mayo and a few dashes of onion powder. Added a dallop of this sauce to some cedar smoked salmon..DELICIOUS & healthy compliment! Perfect for my diabetic mother.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
UPDATE 7/9/12: Thanks to reviewers I got them to be crispy! PERFECTLY crispy. My boyfriend said they were the best eggplant parm he's ever had. Here are the new steps: 1.) Sweat egglants, no need to peel 2.) Used Italian style crispy PANKO crumbs. 3.) Baked 10 min each side @ 425 degrees on baking sheet sprayed with PAM 4.) Spooned teaspoon of marinara/tomato sauce just over top of each eggplant and sprinkled with, fresh chopped basil and shredded mozarella 5.) Put back in oven and broiled until cheese was bubbly and lightly browned. I'm telling you, this makes them super crispy. Delicious! ------------------------ My family thought this was great when I cooked it for my sister's b-day but I personally like my Eggplant Parmesean really crispy. I baked 10 min on each side before baking in sauce..but it still was pretty mushy..not sure if it's b/c it's not fried, bathed in sauce or not cooked long enough. I also sweat the slices for 30 min before cooking. Will definitely make again though.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
WOW these are fabulous. Per another's suggestion, I added crumbled turkey bacon and chives to the cream cheese mixture then sprinkled italian breadcrumbs and then drizzled with butter before popping into the oven. EVERYONE at my dinner party raved at how delicious, rich and creamy they were. Thanks for the recipe!

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I actually sauteed the garlic, chopped up mushroom, capers and sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil before tossing in with the pasta, parmsean cheese, chopped olives & fresh basil. I expected more flavor from the dish...I think I'll add more pepper and salt next time as well as more of the SDT oil and a bit of lemon juice.

Pat's Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
Yum yum. I am actually not a fan a of mushrooms all but this was absoultely delicious. I made these to top grilled steaks and now I'm going to make them just to eat alone. Thanks to Pat I think I actually like mushrooms now! Reminder: You probably only need to sautee for 10 min or so and add a touch of salt.
