Barbequed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
I was unsure about this recipe at first but figured I would give it a try. It turned out really good and my husband even liked it. It was so easy. My only tip is to make sure you don't use to much soy sauce. I accidently poured a little more soy sause(low sodium) than the recipe says and it was a bit salty. I will be making this again for sure.

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.

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
My husband loved this. I followed some of the other reviewers suggestions but I don't think some of the changes should be made..... I used rotel tomatoes instead of salsa. Next time I will defiantly use salsa. I used taco seasoning and chili powder abt 1.5tbs. I added black beans and had to use frozen corn since I didn't have any canned corn. Instead of the creamy salad dressing, I used 3/4cup of fat free plain yogurt and about 2tbs of light sour cream. It tasted great (I don't care of plain fat free yogurt by itself) but I would like it a little creamier. So I will probably use 1/2c yogurt and 1/2cup sour cream since the sour cream is thicker. I cooked green onions with the ground turkey. All in all it was very good. I think it would be great exactly as the recipe is written but I wanted to make it a little healthier. By the way, the chips stated crunchy. I was afraid they would get soggy but they didn't.

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

Very Veggie Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I had a bunch of veggies I wanted to use up so I found this recipe. Below are the changes I made. I only made the changes to work with what I had on hand, not because I think it needed changes. I didn't have zucchini or squash but I did add red and green pepper. I cut up the peppers very small so that they would get cooked all the way (not sure that was necessary but they turned out great). I didn't have any ricotta cheese and only 15oz fat free cottage cheese. Plus I didn't have mozzeralla cheese. I added a little bit of sour cream to the cheese mixture in place of ricotta cheese. I did add a couple of swiss cheese slices. I also added double the sauce ( I could eat spaghetti sauce alone for dinner so I love it, thats the only reason I added more) and 4 cans of stewed tomatoes. It came out runny but I didn't mind at all. The lasagna turned out great. I think next time I make it I will ground turkey or Italian sausage. I hate to add it because it adds so much extra fat.

Luau Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This was very good. I wasn't able to grill the chicken or pineapple so I think it will be even better grilled. Next time will grill for sure. I thought the dill/mayo sauce sounded kind-of weird to pair with the pineapple but it was great. In stead of mayo I used fat free plain yogurt. Very good!

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.

False Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was very good. I made a couple of changes based on what I had and other reviews. I had spaghetti sauce to use up so I used that rather than tomato soup. I also added two cans of diced tomatoes. Next time I will use the tomato soup along with at least two cans of diced tomatos. I used ground turkey and next time I will use 2lbs of ground turkey or1lb ground turkey & 1lb ground sausage. I thought more meat was needed but that could be because of extra ingredients I added. Along with browning the ground turkey I added minced garlic and diced green pepper. Spices I added were garlic powder, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, fennel and crushed red peppers. After the cabbage was fully cooked I added cooked brown rice. I used the sour cream but I am not sure what it really added to the overall taste so next time I will leave it out. Sprinkled parmesan cheese on top before serving. I wasn't sure what my husband would think of this but he really liked it and got seconds. Will definitely make again.

Asian Crab and Cuke Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This was very good, easy and healthy. It was a bit salty but I think it was because I doubled the vinegar and soy sauce to account for the extra crab meat I had. Also I dipped Wheat Thins into the salad which also had salt on them. I added a little bit of ground ginger. I will make this regularly especially in the summer. I think it would be good as a dip with cream cheese and avocado (there goes the healthy part). I am looking for suggestions of how other people served this salad. Update: I have made this a couple times now and each time I reduce the soy sauce and vinegar. The crab and cuke at the bottom of the dish get very strong soy sauce/vinegar taste from soaking up the juices. It becomes too strong to eat if it has sat for 1 to 2 days or so. So watch out how much you use.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
So easy and so good! I did what another reviewer recommended which was cutting up the tomatoes and putting them in the fridge wrapped in paper towels. It really helped with getting the liquid out. If you put the bacon in a COLD oven (not preheated), the bacon wont splatter. I cook it at 350 degrees for 30-45min.

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 :)

Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
This was great!! I was craving lasagna and didn't have ricotta cheese or cottage cheese so I decided to give this a try. I normally use the "Worlds Greatest lasagna" (I think that is the title) recipe that is on this site and it turns out great. My husband didn't realize I made a different lasagna and he said he thought this was my best yet. I told him it was because it wasn't the same recipe. A couple of things I did different which was just because of what I had on hand was.... used ground turkey (full pound) rather than ground beef. I used hot Italian sausage instead of pork sausage. I also used extra spaghetti sauce and swiss cheese. I added more seasoning because the sauce I had on hand was really bland. I added fennel too. Left out olives. Overall I don't think any of these changes really made a big difference. I think the recipe would be great if followed exactly. I will definitely make again. Might try same recipe with cottage cheese just to see if it is so good because of the sour cream or if it is the overall recipe that is great.

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.
