Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Really enjoyed this healthy alternative to regular store bought pudding (which I find too sweet and syrup tasting). I used coconut milk and honey (things I had in hand at the time). Went with another reviewer's advice about using a green banana and overripe avocado- delicious! Next time I will add ground up almonds.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Very yummy and way healthier than regular cookies! I agree with one reviewer-- these are not the typical dessert type cookies. However, that being said, they still turn out pretty sweet without any additional sugar. I did the following: used total of 3 cups of rolled oats, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cloves and substituted oil with 1/3 c homemade applesauce (recipe on allrecipes: apple sauce). YUMMY! PS- the more ripe the banana, the sweeter the cookie. Next time I plan on using a green banana and see how that tastes!

Roasted Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This a great healthy alternative to french fries, and tastes practically as good. The reason for 4 star rating was that the beans were a little soggy( tho they tasted like the soggy potato fries that I love so much so I didn't mind too much). But that was probably my fault because I brushed the green beans with a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, sea salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and soy sauce. After lining a baking sheet with aluminum paper, I placed the beans about 1 inch apart and cooked at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, brushing them with the mixture again half way through cooking. At the end I broiled for a few minutes. Absolutely delicious! Great recipe- will make again!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Amazing cookie recipe- the shortening helps keep the cookie chewy even two days after baking. I followed the recipe exactly. Few tips- dallop smaller amounts of cookie dough onto the cookie pan for accurate cooking time. I was aiming for larger cookies and put golf-ball size dough balls and ended up cooking them for closer to 13 mins (originally after 10 mins as the other recs said, the middle was still undercooked). After my first batch, I used 1 tablespoon size dough balls and 8-10 mins was perfect! Also I usually bake cookies around 320 degrees but this time I baked them at 350 which was perfect. Also since I only had milk chocolate chips, i cut down the amount of chips to 1 cup which was better since they tend be sweeter than semi sweet. Overall great recipe!!!

Monterey Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
this is one of our favorite recipes! i make it atleast two+ times a month.. i do tweek it a bit. i used ground chicken, add onions, green peppers, mushrooms. for flavoring i add half a packet of taco seasoning, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili pepper, and salt. i also add healthy request cream of mushroom and 1/2 cup of hot picante sauce with 2 tbsp water. it's a perfect amount to make it gooey yet flavorable! at the end instead of serving it in tortillas, i serve it on top of a bed of spanish rice and top it with tomatoes, fresh lettuce and onions! delicious!!!! (and spicy!)

Penne with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Pretty good recipe. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried parsley. Didn't notice a difference. Also used mozarella instead of parmesan (also lacking..) and it turned out great. To satify our spicy buds, I added few teaspoons of cayenne and 1 tbsp of crushed red peppers. I may cut down on the olive oil next time to be healthier..great recipe!!! thanks

Campbell's Kitchen Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I enjoyed this meal! I did make a few additions: sauteed chopped onions in garlic. When onions were soft, added frozen peas, mushrooms and chicken chunks and sauteed in mixture of thyme, parsley, red crushed peppers, salt & pepper. Then I added cream of chicken (low salt) with 1/2 can milk & 1/2 can water. Let boil on low heat. I then added grated parmesan cheese (enough to thicken sauce as your liking). Meanwhile, cooked pasta separately and added to mixture after pasta was al dente. Continued to cook on low heat for additional 10 minutes. Yum!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This recipe was excellent! It turned out a lot better than I thought it would. Here are the few things I tweaked: 1) doubled all the spices (except salt) because I like spice 2) Doubled the butter for extra sauce 3) Added mushrooms & cut asparagus right before adding the lime juice & garlic 4) Added red pepper flakes to the sauce (~1 tbsp) 5) Cooked covered for the last 5 minutes for a really moist chicken dish! Delicious! Will make often.

Penne with Spring Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This recipe was pretty delicious! And it allows for flexibility which means using up veggies you need to get rid of! I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic and 1 cup of sliced red onions in olive oil. I then added mushrooms, asparagus, and broccoli and sauteed. I added some lemon pepper & crushed red peppers to the vegetables. After adding the penne, I added some more olive oil (as the recipe said) and grated parmesan cheese( not fresh) and served. It was great!

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Excellent recipe! I followed the recipe and added a few of my own ideas (and some from other raters): 1) marinated the chicken with salt, pepper, and red chili pepper, tad bit of lime sauce for 10 minutes 2) topped with easy pesto (from this site), slice of mozzarella cheese and slice of tomato 3) sprinkled with a bit of crushed red pepper and oregano 4) foil covered and baked for 20 mins + 10 mins uncovered= EXCELLENT DISH! will definitely make it again..soon!

Zesty Tilapia with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This recipe was way too zesty if not paired with rice or some serious carbs. Made this exactly like the recipe said except used potabella mushrooms. Also added some crushed red pepper which helped tone down the zest a bit (but not enough). Next time I will cut out the lemon zest and not use as much lime.

Spanish Moroccan Fish

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Absolutely an EXCELLENT recipe! My non-fish-loving husband gulfed this down in 5 minutes! I followed the recipe along with some of the raters' suggestions. These are the changes I made: 1) Cut down serving size for 2 for fish/veggies & serving for 4 for the spices (as another rater did) 2) used dry parsley since I didn't have fresh ones on hand 3) used 1 cup mixed black & green olives sliced 4) added 1 sliced serrano pepper to add more spice (we love spicy) 5) added 1/2 cup raisins to the dish. I also cooked the fish for 40 mins as the recipe said, but I think it would have been done in 30 mins (it started to break apart at 40 mins). I served the fish with the easy curry coucous (recipe found on this site) without the raisins in that recipe...the dishes combined was a GREAT hit!

Wendy's Quick Pasta and Lentils

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
this recipe is wonderful! it's filling, healthy while still being flavorful! I followed the recipe exactly (even throwing in the frozen block of spinach- which ended up cooking thoroughly). The few modifications I did were: 1) added more red pepper flakes (to make it more spicy) 2) used whole grain rotini instead 3) added a few sprinkles of lemon juice to give the pasta a slight tangy flavor. Overall it was wonderful! Will definitely make it again...and again!

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
I made this dip for a superbowl party I was hosting, and to say the least, it was more of a hit than the game! I followed the recipe almost exactly. I made the following changes: 1) I added taco seasoning to the refried beans, heated it over the stove top for about 5 minutes (to get the taco flavoring throughout), and the let cool. I also added seasoning to the sour cream like the recipe said. 2) I added some crushed red peppers to the guacamole to spice it up a bit and 3) I added sliced jalapenos to the top of the dip just for an extra spicy touch. It was a huge success at the party! Will be making it again! Thanks!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
This recipe is awesome! Quick, tasty and easy to make. I made it for my impatiently hungry husband, and he asked me to make it again the next day! I followed the recipe exactly (keep the tomato pesto) and it turned out great!
