Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
A great way to cut a few calories is by using the Crisco spray butter --- it's just like Pam but has a great buttery flavor! Served with creamy tomato basil soup and you have the perfect winter lunch!

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
This soup is fantastic! I use sweet potato instead of regular. I omit the celery and bell pepper. I also use vegan pesto (basil, olive oil, garlic, nutritional yeast) and if you use a vegetable broth, it is a totally vegan recipe.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
This was delicious! I did make some minor changes... I used feta instead of gorgonzola b/c it's all I had. I also used regular walnuts (because that's what I had and didn't toast them or glaze them or anything). I went light on the oil (to watch calories). I mixed everything together instead of sprinkling on top. And I used a spring mix that had arugula in it and also added some kale! It was AMAZING! Even better the second day!

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This is a fantastic recipe! I make it every fall! I double the garlic, omit the bay leaf, and triple the curry. We like flavor!! :D

Feta Cheese with Basil Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This was delicious! I've made it twice now and it's turned out perfectly both times! The only changes that I have made is that I used an oil and vinegar dressing just because I was trying to use it up and have one less bottle of dressing in the fridge. This salad is really good, especially if you let it sit a bit before you eat it. The dinner party I took it to devoured it, and there was 4 of us though the recipe is for 6! Compliments all around! Tastes great and easy to transport and take to parties and potlucks and things!

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
These got devoured in my house! They keep asking me when I am going to make more! The mint flavor was great but don't keep these cookies in a zip-loc with other cookies, they will absorb some of that mintiness!

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
My boyfriend loved this last night and it was super easy! That is an A+ recipe to me! The only changes that I made were: half the sugar (we don't like sweet foods and are dieting), and I didn't have cidar vinegar so I used half white distilled and half rice vinegar b/c that is what I had. I didn't measure anything out really, just used lime and lemon juice too, we only made 2 chicken breasts so it worked out well! Definetely will do again!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
This is really great! I never have enchilada sauce on hand though so I just throw in a jar of salsa and it seems to do the trick!! I don't really follow the recipe anymore, just work with what I have on hand. And I put full chicken breasts in the crock then shred it after it's cooked!

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This was quite tasty and easy! I first sprinkled the chicken in salt, pepper, and garlic powder and sauteed them a bit then topped with the pesto, tomato, and cheese and baked in the oven. Served over noodles (with butter and parmesan) and a small salad on the side. I'd make it again but it wasn't phenomenal. A good weeknight meal.

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I love this recipe! I've made it a few times and it turns out famously every time! It is a little rich so I usually have a small portion with a salad on the side. This is such an addictive dish though! I have yet to try it with a reduced fat cream cheese. That might help cut down the richness. I use a lot of onion and mushroom and garlic when I prepare it. So good!

Black Bean and Artichoke Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This was quite interesting. I rather liked it! It has a unique flavor. I had a huge jar of artichokes from costco that I was looking to use up so this helped. I didn't want the traditional greek-style dishes for the artichokes. This totally fit the bill. We served it with a side of mexi-corn.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I really liked the concept and it was pretty easy to make. I feel like it could have used a little more oomph so I added some extra spices and used a hot salsa. Not sure if I would make it again or not. It basically tasted like a bean burrito but nicer presentation.

Chili-Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This is a great use for leftover chili. I don't think I would make a batch of chili specifically to prepare it this way. I like to half my bell peppers and lay them down on the sheet to bake and then fill them with some chili and pick up the pepper and eat it like a loaded chip! Yum!

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
We really enjoyed this dish. I served it over rice. It had great flavor! As I do with most of my recipes, I added additional garlic and onion. The spice level was perfect!

Cuban Black Beans II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Oh lordy this was good! I used canned beans, undrained and served over rice. My fiance loved it! It's going in my file! I added a bit more garlic, cayenne, and onion just to suit our taste better.

This wasn't bad at all! But you can't really go wrong with these flavors, either!

Irish Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This was quite good and I followed it almost to a "T". I added an extra carrot, doubled the leeks, used 5 cups of water, added the parsnip later as per recommendations here, and I used venison instead of lamb because that is what I had. My fiance and I quite liked it but did have to add some extra salt and pepper on top. It's a great cold-day dish. I served it with potato sage bread and red wine.
