Cocoa Quickies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Can't beat these for a quick and easy treat to satisfy a chocolate sweet tooth! I guess I was in a hurry and ate some too soon as the oatmeal was dry & chewy and they didn't hold together well. Keeping them in the refrigerator overnight seemed to be the solution to that problem... Instead of coconut I used raisins. mmmm-chocolate covered raisins

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
The brief marinade of the tomatoes really adds to the flavor and juiciness, but toasting the bread prior to broiling keeps it from absorbing too much juice. I used Roma tomatoes from the grocery store (actually quite good for winter tomatoes) and thick potato bread. I will definitely make this again with garden-ripe tomatoes.

Tropical Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I added canned pineapple to the ice cream, orange juice, and a few ice cubes to lighten it up a bit. The taste reminded me a little of those yummy orange creamsicles.

Chicken Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Use chunks of pineapple in this salad instead of celery and it tastes just like sweet and sour chicken cashew salad. Really good.

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Was looking for a recipe with savory seasoning as opposed to sweet so I was quite glad to find this. These tasty fries were a good side dish for my burger. I rarely use the microwave for cooking, so pre-boiled the cut fries for 4 minutes and baked for 30 minutes.

Hot Ham 'n' Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Very filling and satisfying with a cup of soup. I followed the suggestion at the bottom of the recipe and used spicy brown mustard mixed with horseradish. Also added a bit of mayo.

Carrot and Raisin Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
My mother used to make this salad, and I had kind of forgotten about making it for myself until I saw it here. Not a big fan of celery, so used a chopped Braeburn apple instead. I tossed the carrots and apple with lemon juice to keep the color bright before adding the dressing that I thinned with a little milk. A colorful, healthy, and tasty salad that's easy to put together...

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Definitely lots of flavor in these. A great way to enjoy a burger AND enjoy the benefits of low-fat turkey. A slice of cheese melted on top and barbecue sauce made them extra good.

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
The red wine vinegar, green onions, and oranges work perfectly together. I did modify the proportions of the dressing a bit, using about equal amounts of vinegar & oil, and slightly more honey. After I sectioned the orange, I squeezed the remaining juice and added it to the dressing.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Loved the sweetness of the apple juice, but thought that the flavor of this pepper steak needed a slight boost from something else, too. So I ended up adding about 2 Tblsps of soy sauce and extra garlic. I WILL be making this again.

Peanut Banana Waldorf

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I thought that the simplicity and taste of this salad was really great; however the dressing of just peanut butter and mayo was much too gloppy and thick! I added milk until it reached a smooth, nice dressing consistency. I also tossed the apples and bananas with lemon juice prior to mixing with the dressing.

Popovers for Two

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
These "popped" quite high and were very tasty; however the popovers were slightly underbaked. Next time I'll follow the baking times given in a recipe I've used many times before: 20 minutes at 425, 20 minutes at 350, and 10 minutes with the oven turned off.

Yummy Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I thought the turmeric and horseradish made this dip especially good for cauliflower. A yummy cracker & chip dip, too!

Veggie Delight on Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
What a great idea... I used zucchini, mushrooms, green onion, tomato, and ripe olives with a splash of balsamic vinegar added as they simmered together. Just like a delicious veggie pizza.

Braised Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I would suggest switching the chicken broth and the water - braising in the broth and mixing the cornstarch with the water. Other than that, I thought this was a perfect mix of seasonings and a fast and delicious way to prepare pork. I also tripled the amount so I'd have lots of tasty gravy.

Avocado Dressing I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I like avocados and I like blue cheese. But I was disappointed with the recipe because I felt that the taste of the blue cheese completely overpowered the avocado. I'm glad I just sprinkled the blue cheese on my salad because I enjoyed the remaining dressing much better as a dip with tortilla chips. I'd make this again in dip form without the blue cheese.

Slightly Healthier College Ramen Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I thought the addition of the small amount of milk at the end changed the broth from tasting like just "plain" ramen noodle soup into a well seasoned, tastier soup. Perhaps a garnish of green onion would be a nice touch?

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This recipe makes 24 cupcakes, filled with 1/4 cup batter. They were baked in 18 minutes. Quick and easy and good when you want something chocolatey. No frosting is really necessary because they are very moist.

Popcorn Soup (Corn Chowder)

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I had a can of creamed corn in my pantry. So I scaled this recipe to half and used only 1 Tblsp flour and 2 cups 2% milk. I thought that the addition of the creamed corn gave it the perfect chowder creaminess. Added a bit of chipotle powder and cumin as suggested by a reviewer, and some real bacon bits. The popcorn was a fun garnish! I'll make this soup again with my changes.

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I just ate these on their own, the balsamic & sugar made a very tasty syrup that I can visualize being great over vanilla ice cream. Maybe I used too much pepper - think I'll skip that ingredient next time.
