Taco Soup VI

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This was a great basic taco soup recipe! I didn't have any tomato juice so I used some organic beef broth that I had left over and it added a great flavor to the soup. I also added in some whole wheat elbow noodles at the end to make it a heartier meal and to go further.

Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This is a yummy recipe. Pretty basic, but very easy and a fairly quick meal to put together. I was expecting it to have a little bit more flavor with a burger that had garlic and ranch in it but it was still good. Next time I think I'll add more garlic and try using fresh diced onion instead of dried minced onion. I did add some italian breadcrumbs and cooked my burgers on my George Foreman Grill. They didn't fall apart!

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
By far the best mashed potatoes that I've ever had in my life. The garlic doesn't overpower- so don't worry about putting the whole bulb of garlic in. These are yummy and super easy to make!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
The BEST chicken recipe that I've ever found. This is better than any Chicken Marsala that I've ever had in any restaraunt! Normally I don't care for Chicken Marsala but this recipe changed my taste buds. You HAVE to try this recipe- it's absolutely incredible! I serve it with the garlic mashed red potatoes recipe that I got off of allrecipes.com also. I also have served it once over long grain wild rice- and that is also super yummy as well! I always add a bit of the leftover flour mixture from coating the chicken to the wine sauce before serving so that it thickens the marsala sauce and it's a yummy gravy for the mashed potatoes or a great sauce to serve over the rice. ENJOY! :o)

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
WONDERFUL pumpkin bread recipe! I was in the mood to bake something "fallish" to kick off the beginning of the fall season and found this recipe. Although it isn't the healthiest recipe (next time I'm going to try to make some healthier substiutes for the oil, eggs, etc.) it is an incredibly yummy recipe! I made two loaves- keeping one for us and giving the other one away to my husband's grandparents- they LOVED it. The loaf in our house didn't last for more than two days! I decided to make two more loaves later on in the week but I didn't have quite enough white sugar- so I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. Also, I only had 3 eggs. It still turned out really yummy- we couldn't tell the difference. This will definitely be added to my fall recipe collection!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
This is a very simple & tasty recipe! We had it on whole wheat buns the first night and I served it over baked potatoes the second night (leftovers) with some shredded cheddar cheese. We liked it better the second night over the baked potatoes. I'll be making this meal again!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I followed the recipe and several of the reviewers suggestions to make these cupcakes better but still didn't get good outcome. I even made sure that my batter was a yellow cool whip like consistincy but when they came out of the oven they tasted like corn bread! I don't understand how with a recipe like this it can end up tasting like corn bread? I will NOT be making these again.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I made these muffins expecting them to be really good but was dissapointed but my hubby really enjoyed them. I would recommend cutting the strawberry pieces in very small pieces to avoid having mushy chunks of fruit in the muffins. I don't think I'll make these again unless my hubby specifically requests them.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Very yummy recipe! I followed this recipe exactly as written with one exception- I just used one potato instead of two. This was a yummy, creamy and filling soup. It's definitely a HEALTHY soup that I'll be making several times during the cool fall and COLD winter months!

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
I made this recipe with 3 bananas that I had leftover that I needed to use up before they went bad. This was by far the best banana bread recipe that I found out there. The fact that it was lower fat was an added bonus! I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup of white all purpose flour. It turned out fantastic. My husband says it's the best banana bread i've made since we've been married! (and I've tried several banana bread recipes- they all seem to turn out too mushy or too sweet). This bread is best when left to cool and then cut a slice and serve with butter.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
These muffins were very yummy! I added about a half a cup more blueberries than what the original recipe called for- and it made the muffins ooze with blueberry goodness! This recipe is a easy and simple but very tasty blueberry muffin recipe- Definitely a keeper!
