Jet Swirl Pizza Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
Thanks for this fabulous recipe! Our family gets together on Christmas Eve afternoon so those with little kids and other families can be where they need to be that night. We have hors d'oeuvres rather than a big meal. I found this recipe while looking for something new to try, and it was a huge hit. Everyone loved it from the little kids to the oldest grand father. I made 1 with the pizza dough and 1 with Pillsbury french loaf that someone suggested. I do NOT recommend the french loaf - it was still good, but did not work well at all for folding and looks. The other one looked like it belonged in a magazine picture when it came out of the oven. I cooked it for the 28 minutes that others recommended and cut it into bite size pieces to serve. We think it needs some pizza sauce or marinara for dipping, but it was very easy and will be served at many future parties. Thanks, Julie Anne!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
My husband liked it. It smelled good, but it didn't have a very good flavor at all. It was just barely edible, in my opinion. I won't make it again.

Bell Pepper and Lemon Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Thank you for a great recipe. I fixed this tonight. Left out the peppers because I don't much care for cooked bell peppers and used tilapia instead of salmon. Other than the above changes and adding salt and pepper, I followed the recipe. My husband said that it was "out of the park awesome". Again. Thanks for a great and really easy recipe.

Low Carb Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
This is a great dish even if those nit pickers (including my sister) say it isn't jambalaya because it has no rice. Who cares? It is really good. I realized at the last minute that I didn't have any zucchini so I threw in a can of okra and I added an extra can of tomatoes. Left out the hot sauce (DH doesn't like hot stuff) and let everyone add it to their own bowl. I also took the suggestion of another reader and served it with spaghetti squash. All 5 of the people eating it loved it, and there was only a little bit left. My sister begged the rest of it from me the next day for her lunch. This recipe will definitely become a regular here, and I think I will try making it in the slow cooker. Thanks, Morgan, for a great dish.

Connoisseur's Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
For Thanksgiving, I wanted to make something a bit different instead of plain old green bean casserole, so I decided to try this recipe. I used yellow whole kernel corn since I didnt' have any white corn on hand,and used cream of mushroom soup since I didn't have any cream of celery. Added a jar of canned mushooms and used French's fried onions on top instead of the crackers because my daughter loves them. Omitted the slivered almonds. Everybody loved this casserole. Thanks for the great recipe, Aprilynne!

Quick and Easy Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I don't think it is fair to make a bunch of changes to a recipe and then give it a bad review, which I have seen on here. I did make some changes, but I disregarded them when considering the review. Made this in the slow cooker. Since I don't like hominy, I didn't have any, but used suggestion of another reviewer and added fat-free refried beans. Used black beans, homemade chicken broth instead of water, and Tostitos Restaurant Style Salsa. I did rinse and drain the canned vegetables to reduce the sodium, and used additional broth. After it was almost done, I tasted and added additional cumin, a little pepper, some garlic, and some salt. Served with Golden Flake Maizetos Tortilla chips and grated cheese. My husband had sour cream on his, and we both loved it. Would like to have given this 4.5 stars. Thank you for the recipe.

Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
I don't like to rate a recipe on changes that I made because that isn't fair, so this rating is what the recipe would have been without my changes. To reduce the fat content, I used a butter flavored pan spray, a tiny bit of real butter, and white wine. Based on reviews, I doubled the paprika. I cooked minced garlic (from a jar), mushrooms (from a jar) and onion for about 3 or 4 minutes. I removed them with a slotted spoon, added a bit more white wine and cooked the chicken for 10 minutes. When I turned the chicken, I put the mushroom mixture back in on top of the chicken and finished cooking. DH and I really liked it. I served it with quinoa (which I fix with chicken broth to give it more protein and because it tastes better that way - quinoa is much tastier and healthier than rice!) and sliced fresh tomatoes from a local hydroponic farm. Thanks Marlana for a good recipe.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This recipe is excellent. I use canned petite diced tomatoes and use black beans instead of corn for more fiber and less carbs. I also use a bit more cumin, some minced garlic and some garlic salt. I did as others suggested and just put raw boneless skinless chicken breasts into crock pot with other ingredients. Removed and shredded about an hour before serving and returned to slow cooker. Served with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and Golden Flake tortillas (The label says "Mazietos" and they are absolutely the best. Since there are only 2 of us, 3 chicken breasts make plenty with enough leftovers for at least one more meal. Yummy.

Tuna and Noodle Salad Light

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Too much olive oil. Very bland. Added more paprika, Italian seasoning, and fat-free feta to finally end up with something we wanted to eat for lunch.

Spaghetti Squash Primavera

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I've made this twice. The first time, I cooked the spaghetti squash in the oven (see Spaghetti Squash I on this site) because I already had the oven on for something else. This time I followed these directions using an average size squash and it was WAY overcooked after only 10 minutes in the microwave. It was no longer stringy like spaghetti and was very mushy. I didn't have any green pepper, so I substituted baby bella mushrooms and that worked so well that I'll use them every time. I also added a bit more seasoning and used only half an onion because we feel like too much onion overpowers the other ingredients. The flavor of this dish was really good even though the dish lacked eye appeal and lost some texture due to the overcooked spaghetti squash. Next time, I think I'll cook it for only 8 minutes or in the oven if I have time. BTW, you can use canned tomatoes (no added sugar! yuk!) and it's as good as fresh winter tomatoes from the grocery and very economical. (Don't compare with fresh summer tomatoes from the garden or farmer's market, of course.) Overall, good dish. Just adjust the cooking time in the microwave.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
My first spaghetti squash dish, and it was yummy. Left out the olives and added chopped baby bella mushrooms. Didn't have any tomatoes so threw in a can of diced tomatoes (no sugar, no added salt). Really good. We will definitely put this in our dinner line up from now on! Thanks James.

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This was very good. I was looking for a way to use some of the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving Day and this sounded really good. We used all of the celery on Thanksgiving day so I substituted 1 scant teaspoon of celery seed. Followed the recipe except that I chopped baby bellas into quarters or eighths, depending on the size, used 4 cups of chicken stock (all I had left) and 2 cups of water with chicken granules (very salty so don't add any salt if using these) and added leftover turkey. The fragrance was awesome and the dish was absolutely delicious. I may have some for breakfast! Thanks for the recipe sand1149!

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Always read reviews. Fixed this recipe using panko bread crumbs and egg substitute. Added Italian bread crumbs, salt, and pepper as advised by other reviews. Also had bought thicker chops on sale, but the time was still almost on target. A thin chop would have been way overcooked, as noted by others. These were tender and juicy. Good recipe. Will definitely make again.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Found this while looking for something different for our usual Sunday morning brunch. Followed the recipe except that I used 5 cheese Italian because I had just about 1/2 cup left from another dish earlier in the week. At the end, I stirred in the basil (not quite a tablespoon), sprinkled the top with shredded sharp cheddar as another reviewer suggested, turned off the stove, and covered the skillet with a lid just long enough for the cheddar to melt. My husband really liked it and so did I. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
We really liked this seasoning...no sugar, not too much salt, and really tasty. I fixed it tonight for the first time, and it was yummy. I did read the reviews, and added some tumeric. Just delicious. Thanks, Patrick

Spinach Quiche II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
One of the best recipes ever and I'd give it lots more stars if I could! I tried this one since it is supposed to be so "forgiving" and because it is made in a mini muffin pan. I used 5 cheese Italian shredded cheese because it had reached it's expiration date. I used 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup evaporated milk because I didn't have regular milk or cream. I used a 6 oz. jar of mushrooms because that's what I had on hand. For health reasons, I used 2 whole eggs and the equivalent in egg substitute. Absolutely fabulous and we had the leftover muffins the next morning for breakfast.

Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Great recipe. I don't like mushy vegetables, so I didn't add the bell pepper and onion when I put in the steak and tomatoes. Since bullion cubes are so salty, I didn't add the salt either. Cooking this again today!

Lazygirl's Ground Turkey Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Fixed this for dinner tonight. My husband recently was diagnosed with some health problems so I've been changing the way I cook, including cutting way way down on ground beef, even if it's ground steak. He loved this recipe. Asked me what was in it, and when he found out it had ground turkey instead of ground beef, he was really surprised, but said it was great anyway. I did read some of the reviews and added a little sour cream. I'm not a big fan of paprika so I didn't put as much as the recipe called for, and I used broth instead of water. I also added some garlic salt and more pepper.
