Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
Thanks mabcat, this was delicious! I made it with halved sea scallops and shrimp, and it was wonderful! Only had time to marinate 1 hour, still had a ton of flavor. On the adobo sauce, I did use sauce from a can of chiles in adobo, but of course I didn't use anywhere near 1/2 cup. I added a teaspoon at a time, probably used about 4 tsp. Had a nice kick but not so fiery as to mask the seafood. Also, added a little queso fresco I had in the fridge as a final touch. Delicious!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
Terrific recipe - we love these waffles, and they are good for you too! I made the recipe as written with the single exception of soy milk for milk. My waffle maker has a nonstick surface, so we saved on fat and calories there as well. We've eaten these with yogurt and fruit on top, blueberry syrup, and maple syrup; all 3 toppings were delicious with the waffles. Thanks for posting!

Tartar Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Thanks for this recipe! I was in a hurry so I left out the egg - intrigued by that, will have to try it with the egg next time. I also added a tablespoon or two of lemon juice, some dill and parsley. My favorite calorie reducer is to use 1/2 mayo & 1/2 nonfat yogurt. Gives it a tang and loses some fat. Had to chop a few pickles (out of relish) but that seemed fine.

Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
I ended up using the substitutions from angiehdavis as i was short on bananas and am not a big Splenda fan. These turned out to be very moist, had to cook them quite a while, maybe 35 minutes for 4 small loaf pans. Next time i will use all bananas for more banana flavor. SO loved this version though! I liked the addition of oats and walnuts.

Seasoned Broccoli Spears

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I had to give this 3 stars because we did not like the taste of thyme with broccoli. Having said that, I thought this was a great idea and next time I will modify it to our taste.

Asian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Thank you - very nice recipe. I left out the noodles for a low carb eater, left out the chicken because we had meat in a main dish. Still very good. I used rice wine vinegar in place of mirin, about 2 T. Also sauteed the cabbage a little, added mushrooms and lightly sauteed those too. Followed the recipe after that. Delicious and filling. I can see ways to adapt this for different meals and ingredients.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Nice recipe. I made it using suggestions from Mrs K and bhappe. I was out of chicken stock and would have made a larger volume of the sauce otherwise. Used lots of mushrooms and also added a diced shallot and large clove of garlic to extra mushrooms. Not sure if the extra herbs i added to the flour made much difference. All in all, a nice dinner- served with angel hair pasta, roasted asparagus and a salad, parmesan on the table for those who wanted it. It was a nice week night meal for company.

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Delicious! Agree with previous reviewers that less sugar is needed. Still, this was so refreshing and the color of the lemonade is beautiful. i will also add a little more lemon juice next time for more citrus kick.

Dijon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Thanks for this quick and tasty recipe! I didn't want to heat up the house thus: used 2 pans, sauteed the onions & garlic together with salt & pepper in one, seared the skin side of the salmon (with flesh side coated in mustard/salt/pepper) in another oven proof one. Broiled the salmon to finish, topped with fresh tarragon from my garden. Wow,now that was good! Once again, thanks for this easy and yummy recipe :)

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
This was an easy recipe to put together, which was one of the best aspects of it. The flavor was a little too sweet for me, so I added more cocoa to tone it down a little. I think the cocoa made it somewhat gritty, though it was somehow still creamy. I think that next time I might dissolve the cocoa in a little bit of hot water. Hopefully it won't be too runny since I will be using extra cocoa to decrease the sweetness.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I loved it, my husband was only so-so about it. As mentioned by others, the flavor does develop more after a day in the fridge. I used 1/3 c. sugar and 1/3 c Splenda, and it was plenty sweet for me. Good alternative to sugary syrups!

Broccoli Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
Sorry- we just didn't like it. The texture was too far off from that of traditional cornbread for our taste. I will try to tweak it though, so thanks for the idea.
