Summer Fruit Salad with a Lemon, Honey, and Mint Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
I made this for a potluck and I got so many compliments. I took the easy route and bought fruit already diced (watermelon, melon, pineapple, strawberries, blue berries, pineapple, and kiwi), up from the grocery store. I eyeballed the amount of honey, mint (used regular - couldn't find chocolate), lemon zest, and lemon juice.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
These were very good and easy but required a lot longer to cook. Wish I could remember how much longer though.

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
This turned out really good. I didn't have orange or lemon zest and didn't have oranges plus forgot the banana. I think if I had all of these it would have been better. Either way it would/was very good. I will make again. Oh yeah, I did add honey dew melon and that soaked up the sauce and tasted really good.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
SO GOOD!! I made two minor changes: 1. I left out the parmesan cheese to save a little on calories and 2. I threw in cooked chicken breast strips before baking 3. added garlic powder 4. I added dieced fresh tomatoes b/c I needed to use them up. I just finished eating this and I still want more but I am too full. It was really good. I didn't bother with salting the eggplant to drain it out. It was a tad bit runny but not bad and to me not worth the extra time.

Cucumber, Tomato, and Red Onion Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
This turned out good especially for hot summer days. I fill like it needed a little something extra. It tasted like exactly the ingredients so I don't know why I expected more. I liked the recipe because it wasn't soaked in a dressing mixture but now I feel like it need some sort of lite dressing or maybe more seasonings.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
These turned out really good. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used to bags of spinach, saute the onions, added garlic and crushed red peppers. I also only used 2tbsp of butter. Great easy side dish. Will be making again. Another version: I realized I didn't have enough spinach and I had other veggies to use up so I saute diced up zucchini, squash, red bell pepper onion, and garlic. Used fat free cheddar cheese. Than follow everything else exact and same measurements (expect spinach.. only had a 6oz bag) and it turned out good. My husband like this better because it was so spinach. I like the original recipe better but this is a good way to use up some fresh summer veggies.

AMAZING! This is one of the best (if not the best) recipes I have tried on this website. I did not change a thing. I will be making the avocado salsa one its own too.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Mine did not turn out so great but I am still giving it 4 stars because I have had this when someone else made it and it was really good. My mistakes/changes: I added a little bit more pretzels because they didn't seem to cover my 9x13 dish. I should have crushed the pretzels much better. I also reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. My beater isn't very good and I thought the cream cheese and sugar was well mixed but when I folded in the whip topping I realized there were a bunch of little chucks. There seemed to be an over powering taste of cream cheese ..... and I LOVE cream cheese and didn't know there was such thing as over kill of cream cheese. But I think it was purly because of the chunks.I used fat free cream cheese and lite whip topping. I let the jello/strawberry mixture sit for an hour before putting it on top of the cream cheese/whip topping layer. However when I pulled the jello out of the fridge it has already set so I had to dump jello chunks on top of the cream/whip topping. I still ate some of it and it was pretty good. My husband said it was better than he expected b/c he thought the ingredients sounded weird together. I will probably try again or maybe request my mom make it :)

Lemon Corn and Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
This is a good summer side dish. I used a little olive oil in stead of butter, added extra dill and added a little crushed red pepper.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This turned out really good. I let the pork marinade for 3hrs. The Pork medallions I had were pretty thick so unfortunately I over cooked them a bit. I will use this recipe again but next time watch the grill a little closer.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
This was good but not amazing. My chicken did turn out really juicy. I used chicken breast because I didn't have legs. That might have made a difference.

Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Great!! I used turkey pepperoni and didn't add any extra salt because the pepperoni was salty. My package of tortellini was not as large as this recipe calls for but I kept the quantities the same for the dressing and the "toppings" and it was perfect amount. Next time I make it with the right quantity of tortellini I will increase the amount of dressing I make. I used shredded mozzarella cheese and next time I will make sure to get a block of cheese and dice it like the recipe instructed to do.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I thought this was good but a little plain but I also left out the nuts so that could make a big difference.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
These are dangerously good. My husband loves cookie dough so I made these for his birthday. He loved them. One note to make: I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix and I think that the cake flavor over took some of the cookie dough taste. Next time I will use a more mild/bland cake mix.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
These turned out great. I melted the butter in the microwave before mixing with sugar. The only thing I will do different next time is reduce the amount a butter. The cookies were a little more buttery tasting than I would like..... but still GREAT cookies

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
This is great!!! I used a bag of frozen red, green and yellow bell peppers. Cooked the same way/time as this recipe directs. Didn't have heavy cream so used low fat sour cream. This is will defiantly be a regular meal I make.

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
UPDATE: I just made these again last night but on the grill. They turned out great. I put red peppers, muschrooms, and onions in foil with very little olive oil and some seasonings. Directly on the grill, I put zucchini and squash. I brushed them a little with balsamic vinaigrette in the middle of cooking b/c I realized 1/2 way through they were drying a bit and needed something on them. I don't know how long I kept them on the grill. I just watched them closely and turned when one side started looking done. After flipping the zuchnni and squash over I put the tortillas on the grill (over low heat). I put some cheese and cilantro on one side and added the veggies than a little more cheese and dropped the other tortilla on top. It was hard to fill over and a bit messy but it turned out really good. These are great! I followed the recipe to the T except left out the olive oil. I had trouble flipping the quesadillas over so both sides were brown but they still turned out excellent. I served these with salsa. I also added garlic powder, black pepper, and crushed red pepper to veggies.

Udon Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
I first want to say that I didn't have all the ingredients so that could be part of why I only gave it 4 stars. I used chicken breast. I boiled the breast than shredded... taste great. I do not like honey so I left that out. I didn't have red peppers which I think if I did this recipe might have been 5 stars. I added carrots which turned out good. If I make this again I will add carrots along with the red bell pepper. I only had dried cilantro which I couldn't even taste so next time I will make sure to have fresh cilantro. I had hot chili oil which gave it a nice kick. I saw a similar recipe that added a splash of lime just before serving.
