Jalapenos del Raton

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Great! I tried 1/2 turkey bacon and 1/2 center cut "real" bacon (the kind that has as much fat as many turkey bacon strips), and the center cut bacon was better. I also used reduced fat cream cheese and hot turkey italian sausage and cooked in the oven at 375 for 35 minutes. Really, really, great!

Asparagus Rolantina

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
This is great! To save money, we used deli black forest ham and sliced reduced-fat swiss. We thought it was delicious and quick. A meal in itself!

Spice It Up Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I liked the idea of this soup, but I didn't like cooking all of it together. The meat stuck to the bottom of the pot at first, so I had a tough time getting it all mixed together. So, for a second time, I would brown both meats together and then drain them, then saute the veggies (onion, carrots, both peppers, and garlic)on their own, and then finally add everything together and simmer for 30-40 minutes. That would still only take one pot, and you can drain off more fat and not worry about a mess on the bottom of the pan! The taste was great, however. I used beef stock because that is what I had, and also added 1 can of great northern beans for more fiber. Thanks!

Shortcut Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I really enjoyed it! I skipped the brown sugar, added some salt and pepper, and put in zucchini with the bean/spaghetti sauce step instead of adding frozen green beans at the end. Oh, and I made sure I bought a decent spaghetti sauce--one that I would enjoy on pasta. Thanks for a quick, easy, healthy recipe!

Campbell's® Quick and Easy Chicken, Broccoli and Brown Rice Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This was ok. Campbell's has a recipe on their broccoli cheese 98% fat free soup that calls for similar ingredients (minus the rice/current soup and add the broccoli cheese soup) that is SO much better, doesn't need a ton of added spices, and we eat every other week (and I like cheese but I don't love broccoli cheese soup). I won't make this again--just add rice to the other recipe.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This was fantastic. I maybe would want it a little tiny bit sweeter, but as is, it is still really good. I used 1/2 honey and 1/2 brown sugar splenda for my sweetener, so maybe that is where I went wrong on the sweetness. I also used applesauce instead of oil, and it was still moist and the texture wasn't off at all, and that is a five star accomplishment in my book any day. Very healthy--a big slice is great for breakfast on the go! Update: for those who thought it should be more moist, I would say add more banana. This last time, I used 5 medium-to-large bananas, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and it was the best ever!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
Wow. I was totally skeptical--how does a salad get all those great reviews? All I have to say is don't knock it till you try it. Why in the world is this so FANTASTIC? I don't know--but it is. (I used 1/2 Splenda instead of all that sugar and no-trans-fat margarine, but the rest is exactly the same.)

Seafood Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
These were really wonderful! We subbed all low-fat products (sour cream, half and half, cheese), and I thought it turned out yummy. (We are also used to subbing low-fat or fat free products, so keep that in mind.) I added the sour cream off the heat so no curdling occurred. We used real crab meat and double the shrimp--and they were great. Even with the low fat ingredients, I could only eat one!

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I loved the idea, but took another reviewer's advice and made it all in a pan (browned the chops, sauteed the onions/mushrooms, added 1/2 cup of skim milk to the soup and then added it all together and simmered for 10 minutes until it cooked through). Served over roasted cauliflower, and it was delicious. Thanks for the great idea for dinner tonight!

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Just made this today for my sick fiance. Followed the instructions exactly, except I cooked the noodles separately, as suggested by reviewers, because I have dealt with mushy noodles in the past. It was very good. The flavor of the broth was very light, but that was good for the sick man in the house!

Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This was great! It exceeded my expectations. I was a little confused when the recipe called for me to have stem removed and then told me to remove the stem in the directions, but I just left them on and removed them after cooking. I did use reduced fat colbyjack and parmesan, and it was wonderful!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This is AMAZING. We have used it for pork loins and chicken breast. Both are great. If we get tired of the tangy taste, we put it on sandwiches with bbq on top. I LOVE it, and my fiance loves it even more. Thank you SO, SO much.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
My mom introduced me to this a few years ago when I was low-carbing it . . . and this is one of the only recipes I continue to crave over and over again. It is really, really fantastic! I like it better than any quiche I've had before! UPDATE: So, I've been playing around with this recipe. I have doubled it for a "pan" of quiche, and it tasted way too spinach-y or something. I merely doubled the recipe, so I was confused by that. Also, I tried using reduced-fat cheese once, and it just wasn't nearly as good. Finally, adding about five strips of cooked, chopped bacon makes it taste even better!

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
I followed the directions of another reviewer to make it less fatty. I used two small heads of cauliflower, one large head of broccoli, two cups of fat free mayo, turkey bacon, and splenda (no eggs either). It was really, really great! I typically don't like ff mayo, but it was on sale, so I went with it--I couldn't tell the difference. Very, very good!!

Cioppino

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Really good! Used clams, shrimp, scallops, and crab. Make sure to wait until your clams open before putting in bay scallops . . . I didn't and just added the shrimp/scallops after five minutes of the clams cooking, and the scallops were overcooked by the time the clams opened. But, the shrimp were cooked perfectly. I think it is a timing thing that I'll learn with more experience with this recipe, and I will definitely be trying it again! I also just added the crab right before serving since it was cooked and it heated right up and was delicious. Served it with crusty whole wheat bread.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This was wonderful! I ate just the insides for lunch at work while my fiance ate the wraps with sour cream! We did add cilantro and some cut up chicken and 1/2 the recipe because it makes so much!

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Thank you for the idea, but it didn't really work for me. The ones I took out after 8 minutes were ok, but the others I let cook for longer than that were rock-hard crispy. Maybe that was my oven, but even with the cripsy factor, the first day, everything tasted fantastic. In fact, the dough tasted great (yes, I know I shouldn't be eating the dough). But, more than one day after cooking . . . not good. So hard and not very appetizing. I will try to make some changes and see if I can modify it to work out for me.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I really liked this! I have never had winter squash before, but I bought one and looked on allrecipes to find a dish. We love garlic, so I thought we would like this, and we did! Followed the suggestion to pierce and microwave the squash (8 min) for easy peeling, and it was still a little difficult to peel and the SMELL almost made me throw it away. ICK. But, I went through with it anyway, and it turned out great. I added the parm 1/2 way through, and when the parm gets a little crispy, those were the BEST bites. Yum. THANKS!!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This was awesome! I had given up on tuna steak because I was tired of the usual spices and/or blackened varieties. This definitely changed my tune!! I really enjoyed it and ate a LOT more tuna than I have in the past. Thanks for a great recipe!
