Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
We really liked this! I added three cloves of garlic, some onion powder & pepper, and cooked in a pan with some olive oil for 6 minutes each side. Topped with more feta, some baby leaf spinach, and served on a whole wheat kaiser roll with fresh corn on the side. Tasty!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Awesome recipe! Best to marinate over night if you have the time, but pretty tasty with the 2-hour time as well. We cooked flesh side down first, for about 4-minutes per side. Served with green beans and brown rice.

15-Minute Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Wow, this is really tasty with Natalie's addition of the turkey bacon. I prep everything in the morning right in a glass baking dish, cover with plastic and pop in the oven in the evening. Don't leave out any of the ingredients, we tried leaving out the lemon once and it didn't taste the same. VERY good!

Pumpkin-Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
Forget the streusel, these are so divine that you don't even need it! I made these tasty muffins with whole wheat flour only, cut the sugar in half, added 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of quick-oats, and a couple tablespoons of flax seed and they were still super yummy, sweet, and had a to-die-for aroma! 5 STARS! P.S... my additions made 12 overfilled muffins and the cook time was 20 minutes exactly.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I added chopped ham, used sharp cheddar, and used only egg whites. Bake time was about 10 minutes longer than original recipe. This was SUPER tasty, eat for breakfast OR dinner. Left overs reheat well too!

Banana Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
5 Stars. A wonderful, tasty bread. Used 1/2 Cup applesauce and 1/2 Cup butter in place of shortening, used 3 bananas for a moist bread, no raisins. The crust came out really well! Lovely.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
These are SUPER tasty. I completely omitted the white sugar and only used the 1 cup of brown and they were still VERY sweet. I also used only whole wheat flour in place of the white flour. This is a much healthier alternative and the raisins still make them sweet and tasty! I bake at 350 for only 8 minutes and they were PERFECT! This recipe makes a TON of cookies so you might want to cut the recipe in half if you have a small family.

Chicken and Cashews

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
Excellent! I marinated the chicken overnight in 1/2 cup of "House of Tsang Korean Teriyaki Sauce." I also added 1 cup of fresh broccoli florets for some color! Super tasty over white rice and VERY easy to make!

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
Followed the directions exactly and got nice fluffy, beautiful dinner rolls! Everybody loved them and they made great little sandwich rolls the following day. Watch the quantity though, this recipe makes 36 rolls which is a lot of rolls for a small family! I cut the recipe in half and still got 20. Also if you are having a hard time getting the dough to rise while in the bowl, heat up your oven and then turn it off and leave the bowl of dough to rest on top of your oven door while the door is open, it helped my dough to rise. Will definitely make again!

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
Brought these to a party ready to bake and everyone loved them! Only boiled them down for 4 minutes and they had a spicy kick to them but were not too hot. I'e also made them with large jalapenos and didnt have to boil at all. Use some SMOKED cheddar for really tasty filling.

Mimi's Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This recipe is a summer favorite! Great to bring to those summer parties and use up the rest of those zucchini's in your garden or your neighbors! I used 3 eggs, 1/2 cup Parmesan on the inside, plus an additional layer on top, I add nutmeg, pepper, hickory bacon salt, and some garlic to taste, top with roma tomatoes and fresh basil leaves for a pretty pie! I recommend adding the top layer of cheese & tomatoes during the last 10-15 minutes of baking. Putting the tomatoes ON TOP of the cheese makes for a prettier presentation in my opinion. If you use fresh basil leaves sneak them under the tomatoes when you pull out the pie because they'll burn in the oven.

Open-Faced Broiled Roast Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Really tasty, hits the spot. A bit on the greasy side but you can use turkey for a lighter sandwich.

Grilled Roasted Red Pepper and Ham Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
My husband liked this but I didn't, it was just too oily/greasy for me, also make sure you like all the flavors involved as lots of unusual flavors come together with this sandwich. Easy to make though.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
Super tasty! I poked holes in the squash and nuked for 8 mins, turning over half way through. Then I used a potato peeler to peel the skin off. This made it a lot softer for removing the seeds and cubing the squash. I thought the oven temp. was too hot so cooked at 375 for about 1 hr 10 mins, stirring the squash regularly throughout the cooking time. I added the cheese AFTER I pulled it out and mixed in, as well as a TBSP. of butter and some more salt. It was really good!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
I used 5 pieces of whole wheat flat bread instead of pita bread. The bake time was just a little less. I thought they were a bit rich but still great! Use less of the sun-dried tomato pesto and a little less feta if you don't want them so rich. Great lunch with a side of fruit or as just a appetizer!

Baked Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
We thought this was OK. We used reviewer, Julene's additions to the recipe but still felt that it lacked some flavor. Next time I will add more cheese and more spices! Good and healthy meal nonetheless!

Chile Rellenos

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
You must use "Big Jims" to get the proper flavor/spice/taste. That is the long skinny green chile. These were very rich! We only needed two a piece with a side of black beans and rice for a VERY filling meal. For the batter I used 4 eggs, separated. Whipped the whites and then blended the yolks separately with 1 TBSP of flour and some salt and then whip into the whites. Dip the chiles into some flour and then into the batter and place seam side down into the pan. Yum, yum but I still prefer the local hole in the wall chile rellenos and much less work when someone else makes them!

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
French-fried onions were out of season so I had to make them myself which added to the prep time. To make your OWN french-fried onions, thinly slice about 3-onions, dip in 1/2 cup milk mixed with 1 egg. Then dig into gluten-free flour. Fry in hot oil for about 5 minutes. Drain on paper-towels. I also added some sharp cheddar and broccoli. I still thought it was a bit rich and would cut down on the sour cream next time. The casserole didn't hold together too well until the next day when re-heated but then the fried-onions weren't as good. Quite filling!
