Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Super delicious! I modified the recipe to make it a little healthier and to suit our tastes by using Healthy Choice cream of chicken, fat free half and half, frozen spinach (thawed and drained), broccoli rather than mushrooms, about 1/3 c. bacon bits and 1 c. part-skim mozzarella. I also cut up the chicken and sauteed it in 1 tbsp olive oil rather than baking it off. Will definitely make again!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Delicious! Only thing I changed is that I used about 3 cups of chicken stock rather than 5. I was a little concerned when I first added the squash and stock that it would end up a soupy mess because I forgot to measure the squash (just cut up one small squash and mashed it), but it turned out perfectly! I think this would be a wonderful, unexpected side dish for Thanksgiving, but we will certainly use it as a main dish throughout the year.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Really tasty! I had never had a stuffed pepper, and I could have lived without the pepper part; it was just ok. The filling was very good, so I look forward to making it in lots of other ways - as a pasta sauce, over rice, in a wrap, etc.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Pretty tasty! I used 2 chicken breasts but did not reduce the ingredients for the marinade so that I could have some "safe" marinade that had not touched the fish. I thickened the extra marinade with cornstarch to make it more of a sauce consistency. I might use OJ concentrate in the future to get a bigger orange flavor.

Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Sooooo good! My co-workers said that this rivaled the best baklava that they have had at Greek restaurants.

Lemon Barbeque Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Based on the reviews, I was excited for how amazing the pork chops were going to be...unfortunately, they weren't anything special. They just tasted like pork chops with barbecue sauce. I may make this again if I am ever in a pinch, but I won't ever plan ahead to make it.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Pretty good. The cornstarch really helped to thicken up the sauce at the end. I think I undercooked my veggies a little bit, so I will probably extend the cooking time at the end.

Risotto with Tomato, Corn and Basil

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I usually subscribe to the "don't post about all of the changes you made to the recipe", but I wanted to share the alterations I made (some not planned) that resulted in a super tasty dish. I used chicken stock instead of water, which I think gave it a pretty robust flavor considering I used skim milk. Also, I killed the tomatoes while I was trying to chop them, so the next logical step would be to replace the tomatoes with bacon, right? Boy was it good! Knowing that this recipe should have been made during the summer rather than the end of September, I couldn't find fresh corn in the grocery store, so I used frozen corn, and it seemed to be a good substitute. I think I may try using sun-dried tomatoes in place of the fresh tomatoes in the winter, particularly since I wasn't successful in peeling/seeding/chopping the first time around. Would make this again in a heart beat!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
I followed the directions to a T, and unfortunately, I just didn't think these were particularly good. I love veggie burgers and black beans, so I'm not sure where I went wrong. Disappointed :(

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Really yummy! Next time, I will probably decrease the amount of olive oil used, but otherwise, I will make it the same way.

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very yummy! I would definitely recommend doubling the sauce, though I did not double the red pepper flakes and it was plenty spicy for me. I also added sugar snap peas, and I would consider adding another vegetable as well - probably broccoli since that is my favorite.

Mexican Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Delicious, filling, and healthy! Followed the directions to a T, and turned out perfectly. Made the following "healthier" modifications: turkey breast (99% fat free), low sodium taco seasoning and corn, whole grain bread crumbs, and whole wheat tortillas. We did not use sour cream, but I think I will probably use some FF sour cream next time.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Super easy and delicious! I added a little cooked rice and cheese to my bowl, which added some extra interest to the dish. Will definitely make again.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
This was so delicious and flavorful! The only modifications I made were to use whole wheat pasta and to use Morningstar Farms Italian Sausage crumbles in place of the turkey sausage (we're not big "real" sausage fans). I'm really thrilled that this dish was not only delicious but also very healthy. Highly recommend.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Excellent! Wouldn't change a thing, other than maybe decreasing the butter slightly just to make it a little healthier.

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
These were excellent! I think this would make a great recipe for meatballs over spaghetti as well.

Ham and Butternut Squash Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
SOOOOO good. Really loved the slight amount of heat from the red pepper flakes. Would probably try it with pancetta next time rather than the smoked ham.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Exciting new way to eat my favorite veggie! Made it as written, with the exception of reducing butter to 3T rather than 5, and I really can't imagine it with more butter. Will probably add a little cornstarch next time I made it based on others' reviews.

Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
This was great! I needed a dip recipe in a pinch, and this was super easy to put together. Our guests don't eat pork, so I used turkey sausage instead, and it tasted just fine. We also skipped the olives, but I think it would be yummy with them as well. I did add garlic powder and Italian seasoning to the cream cheese as others suggested, and I think it helped give the dip a little more flavor. Will definitely make again!
