Pork Chops with Sour Cream and Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
We thought this was good, but like many others, I made a few changes... I seasoned my chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder before browning for about 4 min on each side. I removed them from the pan and added maybe 1.5 cups of mushrooms with some olive oil cooking spray, minced onions and garlic powder. I cooked those for a bit, then added the fat free sour cream and healthy choice cream of mushroon soup, then put the chops back in the pan to let them simmer for 30 or so minutes. The fat free ingredients weren't even detected by my picky husband; the gravy tasted really good. I served along with brown rice (that I added some of the gravy to- yum!) and sauteed zucchini. Great healthy dinner, will make again!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I was really nervous to make these after reading the last few reviews, but I am happy to report that it was a huge hit! So, I only baked the crust for 10 minutes, I doubled the pumpkin pie spice and I cut them into squares before totally cooling. Also, I cooked for 30 minutes, then turned off the oven and left them in for another 20 or so minutes. It is always so hard for me to tell when cheesecake is done! I WILL makes these again and will probably add more spice (maybe a little nutmeg and cinnamon). My SIL who doesn't eat dessert ate one and took one for the road, and my MIL raved about the crust. Thanks for the great recipe!

Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I'm really glad I found this recipe; I think it will be a great staple in my cookie repertoire. I doubled it and added 1 tsp vanilla. Very dry and crumbly batter; I gave up using a spoon and just dug in with my hands! Baked for 22 minutes, but will prob leave in oven longer next time. I also used mini-morsels bc that's what I had one hand. I am excited to try other additives, like Heath toffee bits and butterscotch chips. Great recipe!!

Black Bean and Corn Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Love it! This has become my new summer go-to recipe. I add tiny chunks of pepperjack cheese, use red onion and fresh cilantro. I make sure to let it sit overnight, makes a big difference.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This soup is outstanding! So easy, SO good! I added more than one cup of salsa in the food processor, then used less chicken stock. I added more spices: garlic, cumin, onion powder, crushed red pepper, a dash of hot sauce. I saved one can of black beans to add texture to the soup. Served with a dollop of sour cream. Really, really great recipe!!!

Baked Potato Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
This is good! I tried to reduce fat and calories by using light sour cream, light cream cheese and 2% sharp cheddar; I didn't feel like the flavor of the dip was compromised. I used the entire container of sour cream instead of the 8oz called for in the recipe. The flavor of bacon was good, but not over-powering, using real bacon pieces (found by the salad dressing at the grocery store). I served Ritz reduced fat crackers along with veggies (red pepper, carrots and celery). A super easy recipe AND good?!? It's a keeper in my book :)PS- Even better after it sits overnight!

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
These were a huge hit at our Super Bowl party! Butterflied the chicken, pounded it until it was about 1/2'' thick, marinated it in Emeril's Buffalo Wing Sauce for about two hours. Used mozzerella and blue cheese, rolled into spirals, cooked at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Sliced into 1'' thick slices, baked for another 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Served with chunky blue cheese and ranch dressing. A great way to have the taste of wings without all the fat and calories!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
My first experience with making macaroons and it was a success! I had to bake them longer for the coconut to toast. I also learned that if I moisten my hands with water, they are *much* easier to shape into balls (without all of the batter sticking to my fingers)! I made nine BIG macaroons, I am sure that's why the bake time needed to be longer, too. I dipped about half into melted chocolate- those are my favorite! My husband prefers the plain. Either way, they are great and this recipe is a keeper :)

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Mmmmmm, these are good! The only change I made was after I shredded the sweet potato, I cooked it in a skillet for just a few minutes to soften. Also used green chiles instead of jalapeno bc that's what I had on hand and less than 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to save some calories. Reheated well the next day, which is a bonus to me! Good recipe, will make again!

Spicy Sausage Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I used turkey breafast sausage, and added a layer of salsa and Rotel on top of the sausage. I also used 2% Milk cheese to cut some fat. It was EXCELLENT! Needed to cook a few minutes longer, plus I like the edges a little crispy. A great healthy, low-carb brunch dish!

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Great easy, full-flavored soup! I use turkey sausage which I prefer. I add red pepper and a bit of hot sauce as I brown the sausage, garlic and onion. For veggies, I use celery, mushrooms, red and green pepper because they all reheat very well. I used two cans of garbanzo beans instead of great northern beans. I use diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano (Del Monte brand) which adds a more flavor than one would expect. I serve with a salad for a lower-carb, healthy meal...

Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
Omg, this pie is divine! I eyeballed the peanut butter and probably added more than 3/4 cup. I also decreased the confectioners' sugar to 3/4 cup, I think more than that would make it way sweeter than it needs to be. I followed others recommendations to use the entire 8oz block of cream cheese and an 8oz container of Cool Whip. I also mixed in maybe a cup of milk chocolate chips. MmmmmMmmmm, this recipe is a keeper!

Southwestern Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I loved this- with some changes....I added a dash of balsamic vinegar and garlic powder to the quinoa as it cooked. I used a red pepper, orange pepper, red onion as my veggies. I used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and omitted the olive oil. I combined all of the ingredients (except feta cheese) with the balsamic vinegar/lime juice and let it sit overnight. Just before I served the salad I added the feta cheese and two ripe avocados (I chose to leave out the cilantro). Added the juice of one more lime, another dash of balsamic and it was good to go. It was excellent! I think letting the salad sit for awhile (overnight) is important for the flavor. I will definitely make it again!

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
MmmMmm, this was great! I chose this particular Pasta e Fagioli recipe because I liked that it had meat, my carnivor husband won't eat a main dish without it. And this fit the bill! I made a few minor changes- I scaled down the recipe for my husband and I; only used 1 lb of ground beef and reduced the veggies as well. I used elbow macaroni because that's what I had on hand. I used Italian seasoning instead of the individual spices listed and it worked well. I'm looking forward to having it again for lunch tomorrow :)

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
Mmmmm- we loved this! I changed the cereal a little bit; used Honey Nut Chex, Cinnamon Chex and Golden Grahams. I also added Annie's organic cinnamon bunnies. I made this in the oven (250 for one hour, turning every 15 minutes). I will make this again!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Always a hit! I use about 2/3 stick of butter and increase the cream cheese to 12 ounces. I roll it in graham cracker crumbs instead of pecans since not everyone cares for nuts. Serve with vanilla wafers and chocolate graham crackers. So easy and YUMMY!

Graham Cracker Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
MmmmMmmm, these are great cookies! I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of peanut butter and used semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. The dough was pretty dry so I had to hand form the cookies. They baked for just over 10 minutes and came out perfect. Definitely will make again with other additives. Very good!
