Groovy Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
For something so healthy, with spinach, even, this qas quite sweet and tasty. Ironically, I made this for my toddlers to replace their Nutrigran bars but, while they did nto care for it much, I loved it. I plan on drinking this for breakfast 2-3 times a week. My husband liked it, too, drinking his own glass. The only thing I would do is keep it blending longer, in order to not have the little chewy spinach pieces. I don't like to drink AND chew.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
I normally make the Washabinaro Chili but I did not have the wasbai paste or the beer so I had to find a new chili recipe. Since I was starting a new healthy eating regimen and had turkey on hand, I chose this one. I'm glad I did. It was easy to make and the flavor was great. I may have overdone it on the red cayenne, even though I thought I measured it evely. It was a little on the spicy side. My chili-loving family approved of this recipe wholeheartedly.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I really like this egg salad. The additon of the green onions was delicious. While my picky two-year old wouldn't even taste them, my one-year old couldn't get enough. My husband laughed because she had "onion breath" afterwards! :) He ate his fair share, as well.

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
My mom passed on a tomato-based chili recipe that I would have sworn was the` best chili ever.... until I tasted this recipe. Since my family and I disagree on the spiciness of the recipe, next time I will use less chilis, but the actual flavor... mmmmmmmmmm. I even forwarded this recipe to my girlfriend, who's husband is a chili "connousieur" and even he raved about this recipe.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
One thing I love is a healthy, tasty and EASY meal. This is all that. So, I love it. And so did everyone else in my family, including my daughter who supposedly "hates" cabbage and wasn' even going to "taste" it! After one bite.. she wanted more. Her byfriend, also a cabbage hater, raved abouth this meal. After three times of making this, the only note I have is: Don't use too much cabbage (unless you actually want it to be the dominant flavor). I used more cabbage the last time, since it is hard to guage the "pounds" chopped, but I used too much cabbage, and my hubby commented on the cabbagey-flavor. As the recipe is written, it is awesome. Delicious. The flavors are well and equally balanced. Next time, I won't change a thing.

Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I'm always looking for a variety of ways to cook potatoes and I also love cajun flavors. I really did like them, except for I thought they were a ittle bland... I added more salt and they were decent but not "awesome". I'm still trying to figure out what else I need to add to get a tang or zing - or something.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I made this for Christmas dinner, in lieu of the traditional "candied yams". Evryone was pleasantly surprised. At first, my daughter's boyfriend would not even try it, saing he did not like sweet potatoes. After she badgered him a while, he finally gave in and tasted it. "Guess I do like sweet potatoes." :) This is an awesome, easy and delicious recipe was so glad to make something different for Christmas dinner. Thanks!!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I am shocked that I was so excited to eat these green beans. Guess it's cause I'm sually excited about a main dish or the dessert but the side dish? But I LOVED these green beans and can not wait to make these again. This time, I'm doubling the recipe or something so I can have left overs. I really loved the garlic and the parmesan cheese gave it a very distinct flavor. I made this exact to the recipe and will not change a thing next time, either.

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This was a wonderful recipe. It was kind of like the Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing but without the cranberry or apples! :) I loved the Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing but others did not like the non-traditional sweet/tart additions. This one was much more popular with the masses. I was afraid it was not going to turn out okay (because it was soggy before it sat for a while) but I added some crumbled, toasted bread and it thickened right up.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
These vegetables were wonderful. I LOVED the full and tangy flavor of the vinegar and the thyme and it was always a nice surprise to bite into the sweetness of a sweet potato amongst all the other strong vegetable flavors. The only thing I did wrong was to use dried whole thyme. I do not really like to keep fresh spices around because I never seem to use them in time so I use dried. The toughness of the dried "whole" thyme was a little annoying, even though it was a nice flavor so I already bought ground thyme for next time.

Vodka Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was really good. I wanted to get my husband to try something new, since he always just drinks those little pre-made Long Island Iced Tea bottles. He liked them alot. I did add two more ounces of vodka, since we have a highter tolerance for alcohol. He was able to have two or three and feel good. It was a nice, mellow buzz and he did not have a hangover in the morning. I'm crediting that to the dilution of the alcohol with a healthy ingredient, like orange juice. I could be wrong... but that is my guess. :) I even had one... Nice and tasty.

Vegan Curried Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I made the eggplant curry from allrecipes.com and I wanted to serve it with a rice dish that had like flavors. I did make this way different from the recipe, though, since I had already made plain, white rice to serve the eggplant curry over (before changing my mind). Since I like this recipe, I decided to just add the spices to the rice I had and just cook it a bit more in the microwave. I was still awesome. My husband asked for seconds on the rice and my daughter could not stop eating the rice from the pan, my plate, her dad's plate, etc. "Guess you shouldn't make food that tastes this good. Then, I wouldn't steal yours." :) The only thing I can say is that with my rendition, it was SLIGHTLY "grainy" (due to the powder spices, I am thinking). The flavors of the rice were wonderful, though. Spicy, yes, but wonderful nonetheless. I'll make this again but, next time, I'll try following the instructions to the tee.

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I don't make this as a side dish.. I make this as a healthy snack. Since I love junk food and I love snacking, I am always trying to find more healthy ways to indulge my weaknesses. This recipe was such a Godsend. As long as you do not cook this too long, all the health values of the zucchini remain intact. The first time I made this, my husband, my daughter and her boyfriend demolished my treats. I had to go back to the grocery store for the ingredients to make more. It was worth it, though. :)

Garlic and Herb Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
So.. I had some crackers and some cream cheese and was not really inspired to snack... until I thought: "maybe, there's a recipe for some 'cream cheese' dip".. Low and behold, there was! This recipe. I made it and was really enjoying it until my 4 kids and husband discovered my newly discovered treat... it did not last long after that. :) I made this exact to recipe and really enjoyed it.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was a really good recipe. I made this when my mom was visiting, as I wanted to impress her by making something she wasn't already famous for! :) Prepared axactly as the recipe indicated, this was delicious. Even thought I was critical on myself, thinking I should have added more salt or this spice or that spice, but my mom assured me it was deliciuous. If it wasn't, she WOULD HAVE told me. She never holds back the criticism, God love her! I printed this recipe and put it in my recipe box to be made again.. and again... and again.. :)

Easy Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was awesome. It was easy and healthy. Even my teens and my husband liked it. I made it as the recipe indicated (which I always do the first time I make any dish from allrecipes, so I can rate it fairly). I actually look forward to making this regularly (2-3 times a week) as a delicious and healthy snack... I'm sure it would be a wonderful "side dish", as well. :)

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
It frustrates me to no end that the people in my family are leery of "unusual" foods. Every time I make something they have never heard of or tasted before, it takes an act of GOD to get them to eat it without a preconceived notion of how much they are not going to like it. So, I stooped to trickery. I made each of them taste it but would NOT tell them what it was. I put it on a fork, said, "Taste this." They bit into it and LOVED it. When I told them the name, they were extremely surprised. This is a very tasty dish that even those with "normal" palates will enjoy. I made this exact to the recipe. Not sure if I will change the recipe up at all (I always end up doing that) but it was delicious AS IS.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I am forever trying to find recipes that are an unusual twist on some standard/classic recipes so this one piqued my interest. I made it to recipe and everyone really liked it. I liked it but thought it was quite salty so not sure how I will remedy but I will figure it out. Maybe, I will create my own taco seasoning instead of using a recipe from allrecipes.com. Either way, I will make this again. The saltiness may be a small negative but the tastiness of the recipe would override that.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Because of all the work involved, I do not make potato salad from scratch. I buy it from the grocery store, ready made. So, when I was tasked with potato salad for Thanksgiving, I was feeling pretty daunted. Of course, I went straight to allrecipe.com to find a good recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and I was extremely happy with the results. If I had not been, I would not haved taken it to Thaankgiving dinner! Everyone else loved it, too. The only thing I would add next time is some mustard. I do like mustard flavor in my potato salad. Personal opinion, though. as is, this potato salad is wonderful. Besides the potato boiling and cubing, it was easy. Even though I hate the work... I will make this again. Definitely.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
(Admissions: I increased the servings to 24 for Thanksgiving and either some of the ingredient amounts were wrong or I did not let the butter, flour and milk mixture thicken enough) I followed the recipe exactly (or so I thought) but when I pulled it out of the oven, the cream was not thick enough so I had to add more rice and cook longer to suck up the extra liqud. When I pulled it out the second time, it was perfect. My son was greateful it was not done in time for Thanksgiving so we could have it all for ourselves. I'm sure when I make it again, for the correct amount of servings, I will not have a problem, and, like I said, the flavor was phenomenal. So.... if You have a problem where it is too liquidy, just add rice and pop it back in the oven for 30 minutes or so.
