Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Really delish! I also doubled the spices - added a onion inside with the garlic - along with rubbing garlic and the spices under the skin. Thanks!

Grandma's Chicken Chardon

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Made this last night with only changing to Italian seasoned crumbs. We liked it a lot and plan to make again - maybe next time I'll add some onions slices in with the mushrooms. Simple & Great recipe - Thanks!

Naan

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I'm new to Naan - and I just love it!! We will probably use it anytime bread is called for now - like with soup - eggs - spaghetti - lasagna - dips.... I made two batches - one - the yeast (I had a jar that I had opened about 5 months ago - refrigerated and was dated 2013) did not foam very good - the other batch I made with an envelope - so I guess with no air getting to it - stayed fresher. The envelope raised the very best (needless to say I won't be buying jars anymore since I obviously don't use enough) but I wanted to fry both and see the outcome. Even though I rolled them both VERY thin - though the pkg. yeast batch was harder to roll because it had so much elasticity - they both came out tasting yummy - just a different texture. Naturally one was thicker than the other. I don't make bread very often anymore - but I think this will be my new love!! I used fresh garlic in melted butter to lather over the tops - by the way - I had to use way more butter - maybe I over did it - but it was worth it. Also used between 3 & 4 cups flour - also used yougert in the second batch - though I really couldn't taste a difference there. LOVE the recipe and will use it many times to come!! ALSO - I froze what we didn't use - warmed it up at 350 for about 1-2 minutes - I felt it tasted fresh - its so nice to have it right there waiting for you!! Thanks so much for the recipe and all the helpful comments!!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
These are GREAT!! I did a few changes - like brown rice flour & ground flax seed instead of wheat germ. For the fruits I used chopped dried apricots along with walnuts. On some I drizzled a bit of melted white chocolate chips - they were good that way - but really didn't need it. I have tried several granola bars recipes - so far this is my all time favorite!! My changes were personal - I doubt they changed the flavor of the bars much at all - maybe the texture a bit. Thanks!!

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
I made this exactly as stated (but in a smaller quanity) along with the options. I marinated it for several hours and baked it in the oven. Served it with brown rice and baked sweet potato - it was a great combo. Our first bite seemed like it was going to be way too hot - second & third bite was heavenly. Our mouths must have gotten used to it - we have really just started to use hotter spices - and enjoying them!! Oh yes - I used bone in chicken thighs - cause thats what I had. THANKS

Very good - I used mushroom soup - next time I'll add fresh mushrooms. Great for a quick throw together. Next time I'll toss the dressing with the melted butter. THANKS

Easy Creamy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I've been making this recipe for a long time - my family loved it growing up - as one person said - use low fat sour cream & low sodium soup. It is so yummy! I've always baked my chicken - just cause thats how I do it. I serve it with veggies etc. on the side. Do try this recipe - your kids will also love it!! Now that I think about it - I used one can cr. of chicken and one can mushroom.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Used some bread crumbs - hand full - dijon mustard and no butter or shortening just olive oil to saute onions and fry salmon burgers. Didn't coat them with crumbs either - they were great!! I paired them up with a salad with Blue cheese dressing - "Bob's" from this site - making it with plain yougert & lt. sour cream - Great Dinner & hopefully a few less calories!! Husband loved them also - Thanks!

I've been making it this way (everyday) since I found this recipe about 6 mos. ago - I do - 1/4 c. popcorn - olive oil - salt - fold once and staple once and on my microwave...78 seconds. AND - I eat the whole thing!!! Sometimes I dip a bit in homemade lowfat Ranch dressing while eating it--yum! THANKS for the recipe!!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Didn't knock my socks off - but - was a great addition to the "Slowcooker Buffalo Chicken" sandwiches I made for a family get tog. I prefered it on top of the sandwich much more than eating it alone. I followed the recipe with the exception of using all buttermilk and let it set in the fridge for about 30 hrs. Will try the leftovers today and see if I like it better. Don't take me wrong - I did appreciate the recipe - I think I'm just not a big cole slaw fan. BUT I would make it again for ontop of a hot sandwich! Thanks

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
So much easier than boiling - besides - the corn isn't wet and doesn't leave a pool of water on your plate causing the butter & salt to run off. ALSO - much easier to husk while its cool!! I can't tell the diff. with husk on or off. Just a FYI I also melt butter and brush it on.

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
We liked this a lot - next time I will add a bit more Ranch. We used some Italian bread crumbs in place of crackers - cause thats what I had. Made 4 with a lb. of burger - froze two for next time! Thanks!!

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
I used "White Chocolate" pudding - using 1 can sweetened cond. milk and finished off the rest of the 3 cups with skim (cause thats what we use). Made my own whipping cream and added some strawberry sauce from a squeeze pkg. into the whipped cream - added yummy flavor and a pretty pink color. Skipped the bananas - just cause. It was Fabulous!!

Ice Pops

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
Growing up in the 50's-60's we just put kool-aid in a tall cup with a spoon and froze them. These are much better using the jello - texture and taste. I'll be making them for my grandkids camp out this weekend - they'll be thrilled!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I'll be anxious to see how my family of Hot buffalo wing eaters like this at our family get-together. I wish I knew what "heat" wing sauce to have used - since I made a large quanity I used Frank's original and added some hot thinking it would make everyone happy. I put it all in - ended up toning it down with some chicken broth - we still felt it was hot but will probably be perfect for the family (adults). Frank's comes in so many heats - it would be helpful if that was specified for us that are unsure. I plan to use "Resturant-Style Coleslaw I" and "Bob's Bluecheese Dressing" ;) I'm sure these sandwiches will make everyone happy! I made it in advance and froze it - anything to make life easier so you can spend time with everyone!!

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
So HAPPY to run across this recipe!! How much fun to make. Planning a get together with my family where I'm making "Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches" from this site - thought they would be a bit hot for the grandkids - so this will work PERFECT!! I bet the adults indulge them also! The only thing I did at all different was to use my confection oven and bake them at 400 degrees for 11 - 12 minutes! We tried one and used the "Hot Mustard Pretzel Dip" from this site (which I use on reg. pretzels) it added great flavor!! Thanks Jan!! Next I will make plain pretzels - knowing now how easy it is.

Mocha Cooler

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
All I can say is "God Bless You Susan Beck"!!!! I can't waite to share this with my friends at work today - we all love Mickey D's frappe's - now we can make them lower cal. and cheap!! I did add a bit extra coffee with half sugar and half Splenda - FAB!! 6/18/11 Conclusion: after making this several times already - I am now using 1/3 c. coffee - S.F. creamer & all "Stevia in the raw" - so much better for you than Splenda. With that said - 1/2 cup mix is aprox. 98 calories!! I've also been using water instead of milk - enjoying it just as much as with milk. TOTALY HOOKED!!

B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
I make my Protein/smoothie very simular. Besides adding 20 grams of a vanilla protein powder - 1 cup soy milk - I also add 3 heaping tsp. of fresh ground flax seed. I grind it in my spice grinder fresh every two weeks and it hides away in my drink - very healthy for you besides the fact that it keeps EVERYTHING regular!! Fresh pineapple is great in a smoothie also. Instead of ice I stick it in the freezer while I'm getting dressed for work - its perfect in about 30 mins.
