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!!

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!!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I made this on a whim and got rave reviews! I did not, however, make as is--I sauteed onion, garlic, and about 1/3 of a package of frozen spinach (use good quality--the generic frozen spinach can RUIN a dish), as well as a 1/2 of a can of diced italian tomatoes. Used reduced fat mozzerella and ff sour cream and no one can tell the difference. Seasoned the chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. Oh, and I also used turkey bacon (can you feel the low-fat theme?). Overall a great base recipe that any cook with a bit of knowledge can make to work for them--it is a bit messy, though, so I would get someone to help prep.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I thought it was really good, but the only thing I would recommend would be to skip the carrots. They are nice for color (otherwise this is a bit bland in color), but I even sauteed them to try to make the contrast in consistency go away (as compared to the other ingredients) and they stuck out like a sore thumb. Maybe my carrots were too thick--I don't know. Other than that, fantastic, and very healthy. I used the "mexican" blend of cheese with 2% milk as well.

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!

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.

Chicken Tetrazzini I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Very good. My fiance doesn't like red-sauce pasta dishes, and I don't enjoy alfredo, but we both like this. My dad used to make it for me when I was little :) I used fresh mushrooms and whole wheat pasta, and all cream of mushroom since that's what I had on hand. It worked well! 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!

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!

Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
This is really great! We were looking for a new breakfast idea, and this fit the bill. Love the cheese layer at the bottom. I sauteed one onion, one green bell pepper, 1/2 red bell pepper, and fresh mushrooms for the veggies. No black olives or jalapenos--just didn't think we would like it in the morning, but I'm sure it would be good.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
This was great with the addition of a little cayenne pepper and some celery. I have had traditional red beans and rice, and while this is not the same, it is still really, really good for what it is. Just add some additional spices if you like it spicy! Even my boy loved it, although he has seen me eat red beans and rice at cajun restaurants and declared it looked "disgusting."

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!

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.)

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
Even with all of the good reviews, I was skeptical. I have never had Black Bean soup before, and perhaps that is why. However, I thought it was really good. I reserved about a cup of beans, used medium salsa, and topped it with ff sour cream, ff cheese, and some green onion. Fantastic! My partner made his own dinner at first because he "hates beans," but after trying it, he even licked the bowl. (Of course, he wants to use it as a dip or a sauce instead of a soup, but he still really liked it!) Thanks!

Cheese and Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I went looking for a "vegetable and cheese" dish, and this really exceeded my expectations! To make it lower calorie and lower fat, I used 2% Colby cheese, lowfat cottage cheese, and Italian turkey sausage. I also used 1 can of drained diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning. I also did not cook the zucchini first, and it was just fine, but I used three regular-sized store zucchinis, not huge home grown ones! I thought it was great!
