Pork Chops with Garden Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I was out of white rice so I used a Lundberg wild rice blend instead. I used a fresh tomato with a little oregano and parsley instead of the canned Italian tomatoes. I used a can of mushrooms instead of fresh. Very flavorful and easy to prepare.

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I really like red cabbage. This was one of the best I have had. I am sure this recipe would have been great as is, however I changed it a little, taking suggestions from other reviewers. I changed the veg oil for bacon. I changed the white sugar for brown sugar and the white vinegar for apple cider vinegar. I also used 1/2 an onion and 2 small leeks. I think I Iiked this recipe because it didn't have too many spices like cloves or allspice that some people use in cabbage recipes. The sweet and sour of the apples, sugar and vinegar along with the cabbage was good on its own without any additions. Great recipe thanks.

Ali's Green Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Since I don't live in Texas, I am sure I have never tried the green sauce about which many have commented. Instead, this sauce reminded me of an avocado salsa that was offered at a chain Mexican restaurant that is no longer in our area-- much to our extreme sadness. Either way, it is delicious. I will make this often. Thank you for posting this recipe. It makes us miss our former fast food Mexican place a little less...

Old-Fashioned Italian Zucchini Fritters

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Delicious. I added a little shredded carrot as some other reviewers mentioned, just for color, otherwise made the recipe as is. These fried up crisp and lite in texture. I served it topped with a Romesco sauce, also from this site.

Chipotle Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This was a great idea for jazzing up plain old chicken salad! For my own taste, I added WAY less mayo and sour cream, and used a shredded pepper cheese instead. You really could change this around a hundred ways and it would be great. Thank you for the recipe.

Ruth's Roquefort Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
There are few things I like better than a good cheese ball. This one did not disappoint- plus it was a great change from the dried beef-green onion one I usually make. Using the advice of previous reviews I added more onions and celery. I doubled the cayenne pepper, added a little salt and added a dash of celery salt. I used 4 ounces of bleu cheese because I really like the flavor. Do not skip the pecans. I got a lot of compliments on this-- even from a person who doesn't like bleu cheese.

Curried Pork Chops and Cauliflower with Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Excellent job Fight the Fat Foodie! I made this recipe as written and it was great. Loved it. I made my own apple chutney from a recipe on another site. I used a hot curry powder. Lots of flavor from the spice so I didn't miss the fat. Thank you for posting.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Very good and much healthier than many refried bean recipes. I used one can of low fat beef broth in place of 1 cup of the water and added the whole jalapeno pepper. I also added 1/2 a dried ancho pepper and 1/2 slice of bacon for flavor.

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I used a mixture of ground beef and lamb. I was a little wary of so much allspice and cinnamon but it really works. This made really great koftas that went well with tzatzki and grilled pita bread. I will make this again.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Very, very good bread! I did make some of the previously mentioned additions-- less sugar, more applesauce, 3 bananas and the addition of 1/2 t of salt. I also added golden raisins. It turned out fantastic. I'll add more cinnamon because that is our taste. Really great recipe, thank you!

Milk Tart

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I was really surprised by how good this turned out. It was different than other custard desserts I have had. It has a really delicate, subtle flavor. It is very sweet with a light texture. The cinnamon on top is just the right touch. I would definately make this again. It is a new favorite.

Whiskey Slush

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
When I made this I thought I had made too much, but my wife and I polished it off soon enough. It keeps great in the freezer. It is easy to make and tastes great. I tried it mixing it with ginger ale and also with sprite. Either one works great.

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This was great...I made this without changes and really enjoyed it. Low in fat and healthy but very flavorful. I love the combination of the tomato and chiles from the salsa and the peanut butter. Easy to prepare.

Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
I used this sauce to re-create a dish that I love at a local Italian recipe. I did not roast the garlic, but added less. I also added only 1 Tablespoon of flour. Finally, I used fresh ground pepper instead of the peppercorns. I put the sauce over sauteed chicken, artichoke hearts, sauteed spinach and tomato. I put in about 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese at the end. I served it over gnocchi. It was delicious!

Emily's Famous Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I heeded some of the warnings of the other reviewers on the spice level. I cut the chili powder and chipotles in half. Just right..Nice flavor..some heat but not too much.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Very spicy! ..and I left out one teaspoon of the crushed red peppers. I thought the whang of the habenero pepper overwhelmed the dish, but the next day, the flavor had mellowed out and I enjoyed it more.

Homemade Pork Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
I've been looking for a recipe that matches a bulk sausage I buy. This recipe is close! It is delicious. To make it a little lower in fat, I used one pound of ground pork and one pound of ground turkey. It was indistinguishable from full-pork sausage. I'll make this often and will likely never buy processed sausage again.

Awesome Chicken and Yellow Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Very good. We really enjoyed this. I made it pretty much as described however I substituted a yellow pepper for a green and used 2/12 lbs of skinless thighs and breasts instead of a whole chicken.

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Tasty pancakes! I tweaked it a bit-- used half all-purpose and half whole wheat flours. I also added about 2 tablespoons of honey for sweetness. One thing kept this from 5 stars-- I use a cast iron griddle, but felt I needed to really go heavy on the no-stick spray to keep them from sticking. That's unusual for this griddle, but I can't identify why this particular recipe was sticking...

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I was looking for a meatloaf recipe like one I liked at a church dinner. This one comes deliciously close! I made some changes-- bread crumbs instead of cereal and meatloaf mix with pork and beef. Either way, this is delicious meatloaf! It is unusual for me to make the same thing after just one week, but I did with this recipe!
