Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
Really good. I made a couple changes. 3 cups of Muenster is alot of cheese, so I reduced it to 1 cup of sharp white cheddar instead and added deli thin slices of Muenster on top of the quiche. It made a really nice top crust. Instead of 5 eggs, I used 3 whole eggs and 3 egg whites to cut down on fat and cholestorol. I also sauteed crushed garlic along with the onion. We served it with a greek salad!

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
This is one of my favorite recipes! I used ready made mashed potatoes to save time. Next time I might substitute something for the zucchini because it gets soggy when roasted and I don't care for the texture. I used 2 cans of Hatch roasted garlic green enchilada sauce. Its a spicy sauce but it really complements the roasted veggies and mashed potatoes.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
The best refried bean recipe ever! I make a batch on Sunday, and then have low fat bean burritoes the rest of the week for lunch. Tasty and economical! UPDATE: Instead of adding the onion, garlic, and jalapeno I save more time by adding 1 cup spicy jalapeno salsa. It tastes heavenly after being slow cooked all day! 3/25/12 update- I also add a chipotle pepper. It adds a smokey "meaty" flavor almost like bacon or churizo.

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Very, very good! My boyfriend and his 10 yr old son loved it and had seconds. I used regular minced onion instead, doubled the minced garlic, and added a little bit of minced canned jalapenos. (I like my food spicy!) I dipped the corn tortilla in a little bit of enchilada sauce before I added the filling. I also used low fat ricotta, sour cream, and mexican blend cheese. Helps cut the fat a little. I served them with the no-fry refried bean recipe found here, chips and salsa, and of course, Pacificos! It was a good (relatively healthy!) Mexican feast.

Naan

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
ALMOST as good as the naan at my favorite Indian restaurant. I don't have much experience working with yeast and kneading and such so it was an adventure. I let the dough rise for an hour and a half the first time, and about 45 minutes the second time. I don't have a grill so I used a skillet.The first one I made wasn't rolled thin enough and wasn't bubbly. The rest I rolled as thin as I could and they were perfect. I taste tested the first ten and wasn't hungry for the curry I made! This recipe makes LOTS of dough so I only used about a 1/3 of it and froze the rest. I am going to use it as pizza dough as the others have suggested.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Very tasty. I was skeptical of the cottage cheese but it turned out great! Instead of normal cheddar I bought chipotle sharp white cheddar. The smokiness and spice of the chipotle really added a tasty kick! UPDATE- I still love this recipe, but I made a few changes. I use whole grain pasta. I also blended the cottage cheese with the low fat sour cream in a blender with a few cloves of garlic to get rid of the cottage cheese texture. For the bread crumbs I toasted bread and sprayed butter spray and garlic salt on it before turning into crumbs. With these changes it makes it much healthier but doesn't sacrifice taste!

Cheesy Baked Eggplant

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
My boyfriend and I liked this dish. My boyfriend's 10 year old didn't like it though. Be sure to serve it with something else because its not very filling.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
This was very good and very easy. I used 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp olive oil instead of the vegetable oil and I added 1 cup chopped onion and twice the garlic. I added the parmesean with the basil instead of serving it on top. Great weekday dinner!

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Very good. I followed some advice by other reviewers and reduced the onion to 1 cup, and sauteed a couple cloves of crushed garlic with the onion. I used vegetable buillion instead of chicken and replaced 2 cups of water with milk. I added the broccoli to cook with the potato for the last 8 minutes along with 1 cup chopped carrots. I served it with cheddar flavored goldfish on top. Next time I am going to reduce the cheese by 1 cup, 2 cups is enough.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Very good. Next time I think I will use less sugar. The ripe bananas are already very sweet along with the crumb topping so the muffins were a tad too sweet. I also might take some of the other reviewers suggestions and add chocolate chips to the batter.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
So I'm a vegetarian. But I was looking for a barbeque sauce to make barbeque beef sandwiches with for my family. I slow cooked bottom round all day, shredded it, and then added this sauce. I served it with big kaiser rolls. I can't speak for myself but everyone loved it. They said the sauce was amazing!

Fiesta Pinwheels

This was okay, but not great. It was a bit bland even though it seemed like it wouldn't be.

Creamy Artichoke Pasta

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
This was so good. The seasonings were perfect. I added extra garlic like I normally do. They cayenne added a kick but it wasn't too much heat.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This was a very good basic recipe. I tripled the garlic, and added less tahini. I divided the finished hummus into 3 bowls and made a trio of hummus. The first was the basic recipe topped with paprika, the second was roasted red pepper, and the third was cilantro jalapeno hummus. I brought it to a party along with the baba ganoush recipe on here, and everyone loved it, especially the cilantro one.

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I was excited about this recipe because of the high ratings, however I did not care for the texture of this creamed spinach. The flavor was good, but not great. This is one of those recipes that are not worth the fat and calories.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Perfect seasoning, so much better than that packaged . I double the recipe use half on lean ground beef for my family, and use the other half of the seasoning on Boca ground for myself.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Really amazing. Even my carnivore boyfriend loved it. We technically doubled the marinade since we only used 2 portobello caps. I served it on foccacia bread with roasted red peppers, herbed goat cheese, and a mixture of mayo, lemon juice, fresh garlic, and paprika. We grilled the mushrooms on a charcoal grill which I think gives it a great flavor.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
EASY, TASTY, and HEALTHY! I made a few changes. I used a pound of whole grain spaghettti instead of the Udon noodles, so I doubled the rest of the ingredients. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken, used much more garlic then it called for, used a pinch of cayenne since I didn't have chili paste, omitted the green onions, and added steamed broccoli and browned tofu. My boyfriend added leftover shredded chicken breast to his. This is a great weeknight dinner!

Lisa's Favorite Carne Asada Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This marinade is awesome! I also add Worcestershire sauce. I also use it for chicken, veggies, and even tofu! There have been a few times I didn't have any citrus and I substituted vinegar. It still tasted pretty good.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
OMG, I just finished the first batch and had one straight out of the oven. Absolutely mouthwatering! I followed the other reviewers advice and added the sour cream to the egg mixture to make it easier. I also followed the suggestion of adding a bit of cinnamon. I added 1 cup chopped apple to recipe as well. I love that you can add or substitute almost any fruit you want and they would turn out great. This will definitely be my base recipe for all muffins. Any surplus of fruit I have on hand (pineapple, strawberries, apples, etc) in the future I will definitely try in this recipe. Maybe some nuts too? My only complaint is the fat and sugar content... they are rich and delicious for a reason! I used reduced fat sour cream. It slightly reduced the fat content.
