Simple Roasted Chickpea Snack

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
These were nice, but 2 Tbsp of olive oil is way too much, I used only 1/2 Tbsp. I also roasted at 450 degrees for 40 minutes because this way it gets crunchy and not soft in the middle.

Basic Guacamole Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
This dip was really good but after a few changes, that's the reason I'm only giving 4 stars. I added extra tomatoes, jalapenos and lots of cilantro, I can't imagine this dip without the flavor of cilantro.

Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
The first time I made them I followed the recipe the way it is. But as I was adding the ingredients, I realized how much sodium and fat would be in it. The texture turned out way too hard and all you could taste was bread crumbs, I think that 2 cups of bread crumbs is too much. However, I still had a feeling this recipe could be good, so today I made several changes: 1 whole egg + 2 egg whites, fat free cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of 2% cheddar + 1/2 cup parmesan, 2 minced garlic cloves, onion, spices and 1 cup of bread crumbs. For the sauce: I reduced apricot jam to 1/3 cup, ketchup to 1/3 cup as well, and didn't add any oil just sprayed some Smart Balance before baking. I think that the key was to add less bread crumbs, you really don't need more than 1 cup. It turned out fantastic! I would have never imagined this combination of flavors would be soo good!

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I have to confess that I was a little skeptical about this recipe at first because the basic ingredients are only dijon mustard and brown sugar, but it was very taste. I marinated for 1 hour and we grilled instead of broiling because we prefer this way.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This recipe actually turned out really good. It does sound odd but it tasted really good with a few changes: 1) I used my food processor for the cottage cheese because I prefer without the lumps. 2) I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. 3) Used whole wheat flour instead of white. 4) I also added 1/2 tsp of baking powder. I didn't use any sugar because with the maple syrup was enought for my taste. It's a great breakfast with a great source of protein and no fat, if you use fat free cottage cheese. Thanks for the recipe Jennifer, I will definitely make it again!

Yogurt Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I love pound cake, but I'm always concerned about all the fat and the sugar. This cake was really good, I only used 1 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of butter, fat free plain yogurt and vanilla extract. My husband and the kids also enjoyed it. I will definitely make it again!

Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a quick, simple and very tasty recipe. I used real maple syrup instead of molasses and next time I will reduce the amount of olive oil to 1/3 cup, I think that 1/2 cup was a little too much for this dish. You can see on my picture how the corners of this salmon turned out nice and caramelized, just delicious!

Summer Berry Parfait with Yogurt and Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Delicious! First I added some agave in 1 cup of fat free plain yogurt, which I prefer instead of vanilla flavored yogurt, then I layered the yogurt, granola, wheat germ and fruits (I omitted the banana). Very good and not too sweet.

Oatmeal Date Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
This is a great recipe. I only used 1/3 cup of brown sugar to the oatmeal mixture and no sugar at all to the dates, only water. I'm glad I did this because it would have been way too much.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
Great recipe! The only changes I made here was to use quick cooking oats (didn't place in the blender), I added 2 bananas instead of 1, I also omitted the sugar and it was just perfect. I think that 1/4 cup of sugar would have been too sweet for our taste. Thanks for the recipe!

Simple Summer Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
So refreshing and delicious! I used fresh squeezed orange juice, fat free plain yogurt instead of vanilla and protein supplement instead of honey. Also, I didn't have cherries, so I used frozen raspberries instead.

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This is a very good basic recipe, with a few addition it's a great salad. It really needs feta cheese, I also added a cucumber and a little of red vinegar. Very light but satisfying salad!

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Good salad dressing, not fantastic. I made exactly as written but found the smoked paprika flavor a little overwhelming.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Excellent soup! I used olive oil instead of butter to cut on fat. I also added some garlic, a dash of curry powder and only added 1 potato because I'm watching my carbohydrates intake. As suggested by other reviewers I baked the whole butternut squash at 375 degrees for 1 hour, it does make it so easy. It turned out so creamy and rich, but with no addition of any fat or dairy. I will definitely make this soup again. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Maplebird!

Papaya Surprise Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I loved this smoothie! The papaya gives a nice texture. Since I used frozen banana and strawberries, I omitted the ice. I also omitted the sugar and I don't recommend adding any.

Harvest Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I loved this soup, very simple and so healthy. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe Gayle! UPDATE 6/04/09: Just wanted to let you know that this soup freezes really well, I have made a couple of batches and I freeze in individual containers.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Absolutely delicious! The whole family really enjoyed this dish. I didn’t add any hot sauce because I wanted this dish to be “kid friendly”, so I did add 1 1/2-Tbsp of BBQ sauce and a dash of liquid smoke flavoring instead. I also had to add 1/3 cup of Panko breadcrumbs because I thought it needed to be a little firmer. For the toping I made my own recipe: ¼ cup ketchup, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, 2 tsp Dijon mustard and 2 dashes liquid smoke flavoring. Thanks for sharing this great recipe Drew!!! 10/04/11: Drew, I was just printing your recipe to make it again and noticed that you are in Pembroke Pines, FL. Can't believe we are so close! I'm just all the way East from you, as I live very close to the beach. I make this recipe quite often, we all love it. Thanks again!
