Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
This was aaaamazing! I read other reviews and didn't use the cilantro, and instead replaced it with rosemary. I used 1.5 lbs fresh wild salmon, 1/2 cup oil, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 8 garlic cloves minced, 2 tsp garlic salt, generous amount (over 2 tablespoons) basil and fresh rosemary (I just cut several pieces rosemary from the plant with stem attached, washed well, and placed it over salmon). Placed everything in a glass dish and marinated for a few minutes, then popped into the oven. Very easy, healthy, and delicous! I served it with brown rice, sauteed garlic spinach and some sauteeed mushrooms as sides. My bf raved about how good the salmon was. The rosemary really does make a difference.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
This was really yummy! Like other reviewers suggested, I added 1 tsp.vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. I also used 1/3 cup applesauce instead of butter to make it healthier. It was moist, soft, with lots of flavor, definitely recommend this!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Had this for dinner tonight and it was SO good! I used boneless skinless chicken breast instead of thighs since I don't like thighs, and upped the garlic to 4 cloves and bell pepper to 1 and a 1/2 bell peppers. I was a little worried to add 1/2 a lemon at the end, but it really brought out the flavors. I served it with a salad (weird, I know, but I try to eat a big salad before or with each dinner) and with homemade guacamole. The guacamole is a MUST! It gives a nice creaminess to the fajitas. Overall, a very simple, healthy dinner that I will be adding to my rotation.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
This was sooo good! Everyone who ate it raved about it and asked if they could take some home! Next time I am going to double the recipe. The only changes I made was used strawberry banana yogurt instead of sour cream, and added 1 tsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. cinnamon. This was sooooo moist and full of flavor. This will be my go-to banana bread from now on!

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
mmmm this was yummy! I used 1 cup almond milk instead of cream, since I try to avoid dairy and want to eat healthier, and it still came out really good. I also used whole wheat rotini and it was great! I can only imagine how good it would be with the cream! I also added 1 pack of sliced mushrooms, and next time I think I will add another pack (2 packs total) and maybe some baby spinach for some color and an onion for more flavor. I also followed someone elses suggestion and instead of baking the chicken in the oven, I cubed it and sauteed it with the lemon juice, pepper, and garlic powder. mmmm, this was so good and I will definitely be making it again!!

Baked Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
This was okay. Edible, but really nothing special for the amount of work to chop up all the veggies, cook, and then fill the wrappers. The filling didn't really have much flavor, and I added extra soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and 6 cloves of garlic. Definitely needed something extra to give it that oomph. Won't be making these again, but I do like the idea of baking, and it turned out golden brown and crunchy.

Roasted Herb Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was surprisingly REALLY good and very moist! I did change the recipe a bit....instead of oregano/rosemary, I just added 4 tsp. italian seasoning and instead of red wine vinegar, I used the juice from two whole lemons, and put the leftover lemon skin inside the cavity of the chicken, along with half an onion and 4 cloves of garlic. I also used 4 tblspoons olive oil and added 2 tsp. garlic powder. It was delicious! Bake it for 450 for the first 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 and cover with foil for last 30 minutes. Delicious and so easy!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
This was okay. A little bland and I read the reviews and followed instructions well. Reduced the stock to 2.5 ups, added 2 stalks celery, and I upped the garlic to 5 cloves and added an extra can of beans at the end. Definitely edible, but not a favorite. Will not make again.

Tomato Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
This was GREAT! One pie fed 4 people, but they could have ate more and thought it was sooo good!! I doubled the receipe and made 2 pies, since it wasnt that much more work to make another pie, and plan on eating it tomorrow for lunch with a salad. yummy! This was a great way for me to use the abundance of basil from my garden! I will definitely make this again!

Mom's Spaghetti Bolognese

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
this was average. I think I may not be bolognese sauce lover, so I might be biased. If you love bolognese, you will probably like this. I prefer my pasta sauce w/o bacon...it made it feel greasy and unhealthy.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was good, but not GREAT. funny is that everyone loved it, but I didn't. It was good and I ate it...but I didn't like the sour cream in it. It gave it sort of a tangy taste, which I didn't like. I don't care for ricotta cheese, and the sour cream became like a tangy ricotta once cooked. I added extra basil and 5 cloves of garlic to the sauce, which gave the sauce great flavor. I would make again, but leave out the sour cream.

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
This was really good. I did add a little bit of brown sugar to the dressing to cut the acidity. Will make this again.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
This was really easy to make, with simple ingredients, and tasted great! I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't have tomato sauce, so I used a 6 ounce can of tomato paste, 12 ounces of water, and a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes. I also used chicken broth instead of the 5 1/2 cups water to give it some more flavor. mmmm, it was sooo yummy and satisfying. My bf who complains whenever I make soup for dinner ate 3 bowls and said it was so good. I cooked the pasta separately so it wouldn't absorb too much liquid and get mushy, and just added a scoop of pasta to a bowl and then the soup over it. Will make this again for sure!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
This was good and filling! I added 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed and halved the strawberries and added 1 cup frozen blueberries. Omited the vanilla, since I used vanilla soy milk, and omitted the sugar to be healthier. Very good and will make again!

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This was very strange. I followed the recipe exactly, except halved the sugar. It is edible, but no one really liked it. We tried eating it plain, and also with some milk on top, and both ways were not very good. It has an okay flavor, but the texture is very strange. Will not be making this again, that's for sure!!

Best of Everything Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I didn't care for this at all. the flavor was okay, but the texture was mush. I even added extra breadcrumbs and fried the patties after taking them out of the over, but they were still too soft and completely fell apart. No one liked them, except my bf, who will eat anything! Would definitely NOT make these again!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I would give this a 3.5. I made modifications and added extra flavoring (more garlic, more seasonings in the sauce, more parm. cheese in the meatballs) but it still fell a little flat. The meatballs really lacked flavor, but the sauce was good. I used 1.5 tablespoons of sugar and it was still too acidic tasting, so I might do 2 tablespoons next time. I also added 1 pack of mushrooms, 2 red bell peppers, and 1 green pepper. Next time I will add carrot to make it sweeter.
