Little Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
The taste component is there, but they're just so greasy, even using a lean beef.

Broccoli Risotto with Cream and Lemon

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
You can't really go wrong with risotto! I subbed half-and-half, and also left out the Asiago (just using all Parm), and left out the chives. Good stuff! Always use freshly grated Parm, though! It melts perfectly.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
Pretty good. Your average, run-of-the-mill white bean chicken chili. It was a little spicy, but you can cut that with some cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. Made homemade tortilla chips. Will make again.

Cauliflower Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
I used cheddar cheese because it's what I had, and also used some prosciutto that I had leftover, instead of crumbled bacon. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, I poured some bread crumbs over the top. Will make again.

Lemon Asparagus Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
Fantastic! Will certainly make again. Because I was having green beans as a side, I left out the asparagus in this dish. And I nearly doubled the risotto used. With just one cup, it never would have been enough for four servings. That said, I used the called-for amount of chicken broth. I also left out the zest.

Lemon-Parsley Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
Excellent and simple. Can be completed in less than 10 minutes. I left out the sugar.

Grilled Balsamic and Soy Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
Very good, but still doesn't reach the level of my mother-in-law's, which is the reason for the 4-star rating. I did, however, like the contrast of the balsamic; I think it really stood out in the dish, in a good way. This is easy to throw together and will probably make again. It's a healthier alternative to those flank marinades with brown sugar.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Will be used on a 30 day cut diet. No need to wrap peppers in foil during initial bake. Didn't add zucchini and used leftover spaghetti sauce (about 6 oz.) instead of tomato paste and diced tomatoes. be sure to add a good amount of Italian seasoning and salt to give enough flavor.

Zesty Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
This was fantastic as far as quinoa recipes go! Will use this on a 30 day cut diet. Didn't have limes, so subbed a few drops of lemon juice (as it was all I had). I cut the cumin to about 1.5 tsp. I forgot the tsp of salt, which I'm glad I did--a few dashes at the end, and it was salty enough. I didn't add the cherry tomatoes and they weren't missed. I also sauteed some white onions, which I subbed for the green onions. My cilantro wasn't fresh, so I used dried which I'll do again next time.

Chicken Sweet Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
My husband and I are about to endure a 30 day cut diet, so with a few modifications, this will be one of the recipes. I toasted slivered almonds, used ground sage (about 1 tbsp); used three thinned chicken breasts and substituted one apple (which will likely fall out once the diet starts, though shouldn't alter the taste greatly). Also, if you don't add some olive oil during the browning of the sweet potatoes, they will get destroyed.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
That amount of butter isn't necessary, so I drastically reduced. Prepared according to directions otherwise. I made three chicken breasts, utlizing about 2-3 tbsp of butter total. My husband said this was better even days afterward. Will make again.

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Really good also on sandwiches the next day. I didn't have Browning sauce, so I just added a honey mustard mixture to taste on top before cooking. I also added some celery and carrots the last two hours of cooking.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I made quite a few changes, but it was excellent regardless. I used chicken breast, and also skipped the sauté step. I used dried cilantro; skipped the salsa and mixed in a packet of taco seasoning with the chicken broth. I added frozen corn. Because of the taco seasoning, I didn't add the cumin or allspice. I just added in fresh minced garlic. Only used one can of beans. Will make many more times with these changes.

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
This was pretty good and tasted better the next day. I doubled the chicken, and used a 9x13. I also added mushrooms, which I sauteed first. In place of the chicken stock, I used 3/4 c of chicken brother and 1/4 c of white wine. I subbed about 1 c of the sour cream with cream of chicken to reduce fat content. I also had very little parm, so I sprinkled in cheddar which worked just fine. I also sprinkled crushed stuffing crumbs on the top. I used thin egg noodles.

Hunt's® Tomato and Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Used pre cooked, shredded chicken and dried basil instead of pesto. Wanted to get rid of some leftover pasta sauce. Worked well. Will make again.

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
The steak seasoning and Chili powder, in the given proportions, was overwhelming. If I make it again, I'll drastically reduce the proportions, and probably just stick with the Montreal seasoning. 15 minutes was also too long.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Excellent. We let this marinate for 3 hours and made 8 servings for one package of chicken. I substituted prepared mustard for dry, using a couple tbsps of it. Grilled the chicken.

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
Even better the next day. I made some biscuits as a side to the stew. I omitted the garlic salt and replaced with fresh. I only used two buillion cubes and celery seed instead of celery salt because it's what I had.

Beef Tenderloin in Creamy Porcini Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
I didn't use porcinis, so I just sauteed the bella mushrooms as I normally would. I substituted half and half for the heavy cream, and cut and essentially diced the potatoes, otherwise I thought they might take much longer than the meat to cook. I did add some cornstarch to the mushroom mixture, but not sure that was necessary. I roasted for 20 minutes, then realized the beef was not done, however 10 more minutes was too long. Next time I will do 23-25. Thanks!
