Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2012
I have been making a version of this for a while and it is my BF's favorite meatloaf- I have it tweaked to the way we like it. I use ginger from the tube (gormet spice blend), instead of an onion I use a packet of onion soup mix (I ran out of onions one day and did that and he loved it), and I use breadcrumbs just because it's easier. I also mix the ketchup and brown sugar sauce separate (not on the bottom) and add tomato sauce and Worcestershire and use it as a glaze.

Raisin Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Awesome muffins! I usually tweak muffin recipes to lower the calories or to add more flavor but I made these exactly as directed and they were delicious (and only 180 calories)! I will be making these again soon.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Great! I couldn't get the potatoes to cook through for the life of me though. Next time I'll give them a quick boil first. Also, to make it lighter I mixed together fat free sour cream with some milk until it was the consistency of cream.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
So easy and sooo good! I literally ate the whole thing (not in one sitting). It was wonderful. I used the slicing disc on my food processor to make things easier and it worked great.

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Great bread! Loved it. I halved the recipe and subbed some applesauce for oil. No problems.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was so good! I put in a whole onion and a few stalks of celery and didn't use as much butter as it called for and it was still terrific.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I made it a little differently because I have an aversion to the texture of mushrooms cooked in broth. I fried them up with a little butter, took them out of the pan and made the roux, then added them and the broth back in. I used a lot more wine than they called for and I subbed half and half for fat free evaporated milk. Perfect!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Good! I used one less potato because mine were large and I didn't want that much soup and made substitutions because of my BF's diet restrictions- fat free half and half and turkey bacon. Other than that I followed the recipe. A little disappointed that it wasn't very clammy, even with boiling the potatoes in clam juice. I may add extra clams next time. But it was tasty nonetheless and not too terribly difficult to make.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I just ate the last one and I'm sad that I don't have any more- very good! I used three very ripe bananas. I cut calories by using only two tablespoons oil and adding a quarter cup of unsweetened applesauce. Accidentally bought dark chocolate chips which had me concerned but I thought they worked wonderfully. All I can say is Yum! (EDIT: these are our Favorite muffins now- we buy bananas just to make them!)

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Excellent! Went back for seconds. I added more garlic than called for and sauteed the onion, garlic, and pepper a little, then cooked up the sausage, and then added the tomatoes, broth, etc. I also used a pound of fresh baby spinach that I chopped up instead of the frozen. Yum!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
Oh my goodness I cannot express my love for this chicken. Tender, moist, flavorful...mmmm. Make sure to peel the skin up and get some of that buttery spicy goodness under it- you won't be sorry. I used some sage as well as the recommended spices and put it in my 350 degree oven for two hours. It was falling apart tender and I could hardly stop eating it Yum!

Zippy Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Loved it!! I used a lot less linguine (whole wheat too), a couple (small) heads of broccoli, one zucchini, one summer squash, a finely chopped carrot, and a small package of fresh basil. Other than that, I followed the recipe pretty much. I had to whip out my wok to cook all that but yum! what a light and wonderful supper. I think next time I will try to use more basil as it really adds character to this dish.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
ADD WATER! Or bean liquid. Or something like that. I put in ingredients as directed and just kept going in my food processor and it was chunks. So I added more oil and it was still all chunks. Then I added water and presto! It became a paste. Very yummy, very authentic, after you have it blended you can tweak as you like (I like it kind of lemony).

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Excellent! I added frozen peas (just so there's some veggies in there!) and an extra egg for the heck of it and it was soooo good! We went back for seconds and put it away so that we wouldn't fight over thirds...

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Great! I didn't have hard bread so I made my own by baking some sandwich bread until it was hard like croutons and then using it in the recipe. I also roasted the garlic a bit just to make sure it was cooked. Fresh mozzarella made this soooo good. I will put in more mozzarella and less olives next time I think.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Super duper yummy!! Creamy sweet and shrimp mmm. I made it almost according to recipe; I used fat free evaporated milk instead of cream (I know, it's Alfredo, but I'm trying) and I was afraid of over cooking my shrimp so I sauted it separate and threw it in at the end. I was apprehensive because its making a sauce with jarred sauce but it's my new favorite thing with shrimp!

Easy Weeknight Tuna Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This is five stars, not because it is the most wonderful tuna pot pie in the world, but because it's pretty tasty and literally the quickest thing in the world to cook. I added some spices and a bit of milk and didn't cook the frozen veggies/tuna for as long as they said. From start to finish dinner on the table in less than a half hour... terrific!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
My first chicken parm and it was wonderful. I double dipped the chicken to get a good bread coating so I ended up using more eggs (though the same amount of breading the recipe called for). I only fried them until the coating was nice and golden and then put the cheese on in the last 5 minutes of baking. Perfect!
