Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
This was my first time making meatloaf and it turned out great! I had to make a couple of changes though based on what I had in my kitchen and personal taste preference. First of all, I only used 1 lb. of 93% lean ground beef. With all the fixings, the meatloaf held together and didn't fall apart at all. Also, used a broiler pan so there was no grease on the meatloaf. I prefer japanese bread crumbs (panko) and used that instead of buttered crackers. My family is watching our salt intake, so I left out the onion soup mix and just added some salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried diced onions. I added about 2 dashes of worchestshire sauce and about 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar too. Lastly, I made a ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar glaze to top off the meatloaf. With all these changes, my first meatloaf turned out really tasty. We made sandwiches with the leftovers the following day. I'll definitely add some fresh veggies in the mix next time. Thanks for the recipe Rempel Family!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
This was very good and easy to make. My husband loves chunky soup, so I added more mushrooms (cremini and white button mushrooms). I had boiled a whole chicken, shredded some pieces of it and used the broth; I added that in as well. I always cook with garlic so I also added a minced clove of fresh garlic when I sauteed the onions and mushrooms. Salt and sour cream were added to taste. I put a little Worchestershire sauce in as well. Next time I will experiement and add more vegetables like potatoes or celery and increase the broth. Great recipe.

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
As other reviewers suggested, I microwaved potatotes for 10 minutes first, then let cool. This made it much easier to scoop out the middle. I melted and then brushed potato skins with Smart Balance Butter. I baked at 7 minutes, each side, at toaster oven temp 450. I used mozzarella cheese and turkey bacon for filling (cooked and crumbled bacon first), then re-baked for 5 minutes. Very good and easy to make.

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
My husband and I love garlic, so I made some additions and added fresh garlic, fresh chopped green onions, and some ground pepper. For our own personal taste preference, I also used low sodium soy sauce and brown sugar. I only marinated chicken for 1.5 hrs. Tasted so good; excellent if marinated even longer. I've also tried this marinade with baked chicken. Turned out just as good. Easy and tasty marinade.

Thai Ground Chicken Basil

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I made this with ground beef, although not traditionally made with it, and it tasted good. Like other reviewers, I used sweet thai chili sauce. Also, I used crushed red pepper flakes in substition of the thai chilis and added a squeeze of lemon juice. Very simple and easy to make for a quick meal.

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
This is very bland if you follow the recipe. I changed it up a little by doubling the sauce (as recommended by previous reviewers) and added more of the pesto, fresh garlic, and worcestshire sauce. It turned out so much better. I didn't use broccoli (didn't have any) so I used tomatoes instead. I added the tomatoes in at the end. I love cilantro so I used that as well. To make it a bit healthier, I substituted butter for Smart Butter and used half and half instead of heavy cream. I sauteed the shrimp just a little bit, then added the shrimp to the sauce and simmered it all for about 45 min. Also, I used thin spaghetti instead of angel hair pasta. Nice, easy recipe. Tweak it up a bit and it's a tasty dish!

Easy Indian Style Okra

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Easy to make. We didn't have fresh okra at the grocery store, so I used frozen okra instead and it turned out good.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Excellent! My husband couldn't believe that I made it. I added salt to taste only and that was enough. No need to add all the salt that the recipe asks for. To cut down on cholesterol, I used Smart Balance Light and half and half. It tasted awesome!
