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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

Portuguese Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I made this for dinner last night and quite enjoyed it though I made a number of changes! I only used 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, and filleted them. Reduced the butter by half. I doubled the amount of garlic. Only used 1 cup of stock. 40 minutes of simmering was far too long for the thinness of my filets. It was basically all gone but left a very small amount of nice thick gravy in the pan. I added a small amount of hot water, then I used maybe only 1/4 cup of half & half instead of heavy cream and stirred until thickened. I sprinkled salt and pepper in the gravy at this point. The results were quite delicious.

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.

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!

Basic Guacamole Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This is a really good basic recipe. I like my guacamole chunky so I usually do 1 tomato, 1-2 avocado, 1/4-1/2 an onion, minced. And I use a splash of lime juice instead of lemon, a sprinkling of salt, and a bunch of chopped cilantro. This is a great starter recipe though for someone who has never really made guacamole.

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!

Pumpkin Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I adore this recipe. I am pretty much addicted to all things pumpkin! This had a good flavor and not overwhelmingly pumpkiny. I made a couple of small changes... I omitted the wine and added a splash of vinegar + water. I used more than 1 cup of pumpkin because I had a large already opened can and didn't want to waste. I used dry thyme. And I added a lot of mushrooms.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I thought the flavor of this dish was quite good, regardless of being worried about the lack of spices initially! Changes that I made was omitting fresh basil because I didn't have any though that would have been delicious; and I used Great Northerns instead of Cannellini's. In the future, I will add an additional can of beans. They were definetely lost in all the meat of this stew.

Beef and Vegetable Ragout

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I thought this was really good! I used venison instead of beef but otherwise I followed it to a "T"! I didn't have egg noodles on hand so I served it with basmati rice over a bed of spinach. My fiance thought it was "interesting" and not in a bad way. I quite liked it and thought it was unique.

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!

Barley Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
Overall, I really enjoyed this recipe but I did make a number of changes. I had a little more than 1 cup of barley (maybe 1/4 cup?) so I threw it all in. I tripled the mushrooms to make it a meatier dish, and I used 1-32oz carton of chicken broth to accomodate for the extra barley. Apparently it was a bit too much extra! The added mushrooms probably didn't help the liquid situation either. The flavor was great albeit a bit simple. I love the pine nuts - a great contrast to the chewiness of the barley. I sprinkled the dish with a little more green onion tops when serving. And I omitted the parsley all together because frankly, I don't like parsley! :)
