Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
mmm this was yummy! I used whole wheat noodles, an entire can of evaporated milk, and also added a package of mushrooms and an extra 5 oz can of tuna. Next time I will add another package of mushrooms (one pound total) and double the onion. I sauteed the onion/mushrooms before adding to the casserole. Next time I will also add another can of tuna (so, 15 ounces total). Carrots might be good in it too. All in all, a keeper!

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This was okay, nothing special. Ate it and it tasted good, but I like anything having to do with potatoes. I might make this again.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Delicious! I cut the sugar to 1 cup brown sugar (and even then it was sweet! Next time I will do 3/4 cup) added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. Didn't have pecans, so didn't use it, but next time I will add walnuts because I like walnuts in my banana bread. I mashed 3 very ripe (on the verge of rotten! haha!) and because I couldn't find my loaf pan, I made 12 muffins and baked for 30 minutes. perfect and delicious and will make again!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
This was delicious! I did change it, but this is a good base. I'm always trying to make things healthier, so this is what I did: 1. Used part skim mozzarella cheese 2. Replaced all of the ricotta with organic low-fat cottage cheese 3. Made my own homemade sauce (the jarred sauces have a lot of sugar) Sauce: 5 cans organic diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup fresh basil, 2 tablespoons fresh oregano,(can used dried herbs if you don't have fresh) 1 cup carrots, 1/2 cup dry white wine, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar) 4. Put 6 cloves of garlic instead of 3. Good and will make it again! Next time I will add a little more veggies...maybe one zuchinni and another bell pepper. It was so good that between 6 adults we finished it off in one sitting!

Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
mmmm sooo yummy and easy! I didn't want to use frozen veggies, so I used whatever I had on hand (I already had 1/2 roasted cauliflower that I threw in), as well as one onion, 2 carrots, and a bell pepper. It was good and would be good with whatever veggies you have on hand. I could see using mushrooms, snow peas, broccoli, or whatever you would like. Cooked the tofu and set aside and then sauteed the veggies w/ the chicken broth and covered, letting them cook, then when they were almost done added the oyster sauce.

Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This was yum and super healthy!!! I used two fresh diced tomatoes instead of canned and used whole wheat tortillas. I mixed the cheese with the filling mixture and it was yummy! I also topped the enchiladas with a homemade red enchilada sauce and baked for an additional 5 minutes. These were FILLING! I could only eat half of one! Definitely tastes more like a wet burrito than an enchilada, but good nonetheless.

Santa Fe Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
Good recipe. I doubled the black beans and used cooked brown rice (3 cups). It took a lot longer to cook than suggested, but it was good and I will make again when in a pinch. Not something I would crave, but easy and everyone seemed to like it.

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was good and a very healthy meal! I didn't exactly follow the recipe though but the recipe was a great base to add on to. Instead of the pasta I added brown rice and I also added potatoes. I added a little more than half a can of tomato paste and I was generous with the spices and added 1 tsp. oregano. In addition to what the recipe called for, I added about 1 cup of celery, a can of corn, and about 5 carrots. It was yummy! I will definitely make this again! Next time I will add green beans and maybe throw in cabbage. This soup is wonderful because you really can add whatever you have in your fridge that you want to use up!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This was okay. Easy, but overall takes along time. Bf raved about it, but no one else really seemed to love it. Edible, but will not make again, or if I do, I won't be adding dumplings..maybe make biscuits on the side.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
This is such an easy and really tasty potato soup! yum! everyone loved it! To make it healthier, I used low fat milk instead of heavy cream, and used half a package of bacon instead of the whole package. I also used an onion instead of leeks and sauteed about 2-3 cloves of garlic along with the onion. Sprinkled shredded chedder cheese on top and it was sooo delicious! Will definitely be making this again, soon!

Blueberry, Banana, and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
This is really tasty andvery filling. It's definitely not one of those smoothies you can chug down. I doubled the flaxseed and it tasted fine. I omitted the honey and yogurt and it was still really sweet and thick. The key is to use a ripe banana

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Family loved it. It came out soooo moist and flavorful! I even left the skin on and it did not taste fishy at all. Will be making this again and again! So easy and very little mess! EDIT: I made this again tonight, but didnt marinate the salmon because I didnt have time, just put the salmon in a glass casserole dish and then threw all the ingredients on top and WOW so good and easy! BF said it was better than any salmon at a restaurant!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
These were delicious and received rave reviews!! Everyone thought they were delicious! They definitely taste like a veggie burger, but so good. I used 5 cloves of garlic, 1 egg and flaxseed/water in place of another egg, omitted the hot sauce, and used 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs. I threw it on the stove for a few minutes so it got really crispy before serving. This is incredibly healthy, not to mention super cheap!!! Everything cost less than $5 and fed 4 people.
