Loaded Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Zucchini is coming in our garden faster than I can keep up so I've been looking specifically for recipes to use up our abundant crop (from 2 plants). This was a wonderful quiche ... I increased the zucchini from 1/2 cup to 1 1/2 cups; I didn't have a green pepper but I did have 3 carrots that needed to be used up. I didn't specify the fat content for milk (i.e., whole milk); I used fat free milk with no problem. Even my husband liked it and he's a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy! Served it with a coleslaw mix tossed with Asian Ginger dressing ... yummy!!

Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Going back to my usual Curried Butternut Squash Soup. Made this exact to recipe and had to doctor it way too much (all that do say the rating is based on original recipe and not my additions)

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
We had some delicious Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice soup on a recent visit to Michigan and Minnesota area ... this is just the recipe I was looking for!!! Lucky people who live in "Wild Rice" country! I did sub fat free half and half for the cream but it was still very rich and "creamy" and helped our goal of cutting some fat from the diet :-)

Fish Tacos Ultimo

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I made these exactly as stated; I didn't care for these at all but my DH did which is why it got 3 stars and not 2. I will be going back to my other Fish Taco recipe from this site.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Perfection! I did add 1 extra tablespoon of butter because I have butter grated and in the freezer in premeasured packages since I make scones every weekend. I used golden raisins and added about 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (preference but would still be "perfect" scones without them). So glad I found this recipe!

Zippy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Great sauce ... I used it for BBQ beef sandwiches that I made in the crockpot. Can't wait to use it for all my other BBQ recipes! No more store bought for us!

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
I didn't have buttermilk so did the vinegar in milk as others suggested. I can't believe it would have made that big of a difference. This has a bit too much of a sour cream taste instead of blue cheese; I actually added an additional amount of blue cheese. It's an okay blue cheese dressing but not outstanding.

Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
From others: reduced sugar to 1/2 cup and oil to 3/4 cup. I used ground deli mustard with horseradish since it didn't specify. Very good and a definite improvement to store bought or restaurants.

Creamy Carrot With Curry Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I had some carrots I wanted to use up and found this recipe. Made with fat free half and half and fat free chicken broth; did not top with pistachios (didn't have any - didn't miss them). Other than that made exactly as stated. For WW followers with the fat free half and half and chicken broth this equals 3 points for a 1 cup serving. Good way to get in more veggies!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Took other suggestions .. used 2 cans chicken broth, added water to make 6 cups. Didn't have a ham hock but it didn't seem to need it for flavor (though I did have to add a little bit of salt to compensate). Excellent recipe!!

Easy Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Didn't have green onions so I followed abennett_33 review and used minced onion. Will definitely add this to our Chinese meal menu!

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
This soup is wonderful and well worth trying! I did double the curry (personal preference). I used evaporated skim milk to cut fat. If served without bacon it is 4 pts on WW. Added bonus ... this soup freezes very well!

Grandma Coffee's Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
All in all a good soup and I would have given it 5* except for the lack of beef flavor in the broth. I added 1/2 T of Better Than Bouillon Beef Base which helped a lot. I'm not sure why the other reviews said it was too thick ... it was the perfect amount of broth - not too thin or thick. I used the 1/2 cup of barley it called for and will use a bit more next time as it didn't have as much as I was hoping for. I did brown the meat in 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil before cooking. Cooking time was very close. I love the addition of rutabaga in place of potatoes. If you're counting Weight Watcher points, based on serving 12 it is 3 points and is a great way to get in some extra veggies.

Roasted Winter Squash Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I wasn't sure the trouble of sorting and cleaning the seeds would be worth it but these are very good. I used a combination of spaghetti squash and acorn squash seeds, a bit of olive oil and garlic salt.

Frank's Spicy Alabama Onion Beer Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I had high hopes for this chili ... it was good but not great. It was thin and way too "tomatoey". I added an extra 1/4 cup of chili powder and an extra can of beans (since it was so thin) but it still didn't have the flavor we were looking for. I didn't add the red peppers (it would have made it "hot" but not more flavorful). I'll go back to my old standby.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Serves 5 ... not in this house! My DH ate four servings of this himself! I didn't have Jack cheese on hand so I used reduced fat Mexican cheese (yummy). I will make a slight change next time but I don't think it will change anything but lower the calories a bit. I will reduce the bacon to 2 slices and bacon fat to 1/2 T. For those of you on WW ... with this change and making it serve 4 instead of 5, it will be 4 pts.

Baklava

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Very good and not nearly as hard or time consuming as you might think! They were a little "gooey" and not quite as crunchy as I've made from other recipes but the flavor was very good ... I will probably use a bit less of the sauce next time and see if that makes a difference.

Sweet and Sour Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Wonderful ... served this to company as a side with Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Ginger Glaze from this site. Love the no mayo dressing ... you could actually taste the other ingredients. I omitted the celery and bell pepper (didn't have any on hand and didn't want to go back to the store). I added grated carrots instead. This will definitely be my go to slaw from now on!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Oh my is this great! Served it to company tonight and they all raved about it. A definite keeper ... easy enough for everyday and special enough for company. I did bake it in the over as other reviewers suggested ... turned out great and nobody had to be outside in the cold! As a side note ... I made some baked chicken wings; we dipped the wings in some of the sauce when we ate them ... yummy!!! Next time I will use the glaze for the wings as well.
