Delicious Oat Bran Cereal

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I bought a big bag of this by the pound at the local health foods store and wasn't sure how to cook it. Thank you for the recipe. I used bananas because I didn't have any plums, as well as a tablespoon of ground flax seed for added fiber. Sooo yummy! I like how creamy it is.

Barbecued Beef Ribs for Two

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Super yummy and tender! I used boneless country style beef ribs, and it turned out so well. As others suggested, I simmered the beef (just under boiling) for about 1 hr. 30 min., but I found that they didn't need to be in the oven for an hour. It was more like a half hour for me and they started to burn, so I turned it to 300 and then just took them out. Very happy with these, and will definitely make them again!

Creamed Peas and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I was surprised at how fast and easy this was to make. I had never heard of creamed peas and onions before, but now I know! My husband, who swears he doesn't like peas seemed to enjoy it. I only had frozen peas, so I just added raw chopped onion with the peas. It worked out great and I will definitely make this again.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Phenomenal! I marinated for four hours and as one reviewer suggested, I put it in the oven on 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I lined a glass baking dish with aluminum foil to save time on cleanup. The salmon was juicy and full of flavor. I served it with rice and corn on the cob. My very picky eater hubby even approved. Give this a try!

Tuna Confetti Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
Very tasty! I'm trying to eat lower carb, so this was great over greens alongside some grapes. I added slivered almonds and since I didn't have onions...some onion powder and a sour cream/onion dip mixture with the mayo. I also used some jalapenos for heat and some leftover fresh basil I had. You can add just about anything and it will taste great!

Pineapple and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
Yummy! I wanted to lessen the fruit sugars, so I used 1% milk for some calcium in place of the juice. I tasted it, and with some coconut, it was pretty close to a pina colada. Instead, I added strawberries as someone suggested and made it more like an "Aloha Pineapple" from Jamba Juice! Thanks for the ideas!

Banana Berry Smoothie II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
Incredibly yummy! Of course, all of us that rate these recipes have to go and change it, but at least it may help others out with the same "taste". I used 1 tsp. sugar as I had no honey on hand, and for the yogurt I used strawberry. To cut calories, I used half cup 1% milk and half cup cold water. The consistency was still very thick and lovely. I also used frozen strawberries and bananas so this may have contributed to the great consistency.

Cinnamon-Curry Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
This was great. Not fishy at all and I used the regular tuna in water. All I had was regular mustard so I used that, along with some extra mayo and raisins. I also added a little bit of Splenda b/c I felt it could use some sweetness. I spread a wedge of Laughing Cow light swiss cheese on an asiago cheese toasted bagel and spread the tuna on top. Awesome!

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
I followed this recipe exactly as written (except I used very thin saute steak), and it was absolutely fabulous. My husband loved it and I will definitely be making it again.

Drop Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
I, too had to add more flour as the cookies spread a lot in the first minute of baking. Maybe we just need to make the dropped spoonfuls smaller? I liked them okay, but my husband won't eat them. His favorite is oatmeal raisin, so go figure. I also added about a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter to the last batch and they were quite yummy.

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I took someone's advice and added about 1/4 cup ketchup, a touch of honey and a little less brown sugar and just a squirt of dijon mustard. Used cornstarch to thicken sauce and served over rice. Hubby and I really loved it. Next time I'll brown the meatballs in the oven to help keep their shape better.

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Fabulous and so easy to make! To make the "mashing" even easier, I used an electric hand mixer on the avocado and then stirred in the other ingredients. I used less oil as avocados are already so rich in good fats, that nutritionally (and consistency-wise), the dip didn't need it. If you love avocados, also check out the Avocado dessert on allrecipes.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
I didn't have self-rising flour, so I took the advice of others and added baking powder and salt. The biscuits were a little dense, but next time I will try not using fat-free mayo and will use self-rising flour. The density was perfect, however, for our homemade hamburgers. I'm happy about how healthy these biscuits are compared to other recipes using biscuit mix, eggs, etc. Definitely worth making again!

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Very yummy. Best with a touch of honey in the batter and a cold glass of milk when they're done.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Wow! This was better than some restaurant salmon I've had. I only had spicy brown mustard and dried parsley. I used two tablespoons of the mustard instead of the called for three and a heaping teaspoon of the dried parsley. My husband, someone who usually doesn't like honey-mustard flavored things, LOVED this recipe. This will be my new standby for salmon!

Avocado Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
This is very tasty, but I feel that it is missing a flavor. I put about 1/4 cup in my oatmeal (cooked with less water) and this worked nicely. Does it need cinnamon? Hmm... please post if you have any ideas. I like the consistency.

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Very yummy! I added about an 1/8 cup of brown sugar to the 3/8 cup of white and used some pumpkin pie spice with a little added cinnamon. I think the rum really makes this recipe..gives depth to the flavor. I think adding a tablespoon or two to the mix may make for a firmer pie which I would have preferred. Best sweet potato pie I've made so far. Don't forget the reddi-whip!

Indian Peanut Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Yummy! I didn't have cayenne pepper, but I added a little diced jalapeno and fresh thai basil...gave it excellent flavor! I used less peanut butter since I'm watching calories, but it still tasted fabulous! Definitely give it a try...I didn't even miss having meat in my main dish. I'm sure if you wanted to up the protein, chicken would taste great.

Old Italian Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Compliments to the chef! This was a great authentic spaghetti sauce. I didn't use as much wine as it called for, only because I wanted to save it for the meal ; ) I did sweeten mine up with some brown sugar and ketchup (just can't help myself). I love the rich flavor that the wine brings to the sauce.
