Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
These are nice and moist. I actually baked this in loaf pan instead of doing muffins. Not too sweet. I used low fat sour cream. These are nice if you are watching your calories and fat.

Slow Cooker Blackberry Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I substituted red raspberry jam instead of blackberry and used the jam for the sauce instead of the whole fruit. Was very flavorful. Dried out slightly but it was my fault because I cooked it too long. Will make again.

Jalapeno Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Everyone loved this at the party that I brought it to. I put the hummus on top of cucumber slices and topped that with a cherry tomato half. I would have preferred a little less curry powder. I also would have preferred a bit smoother texture. I used a food processor, but next time I will try the blender.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I am basing this review on method alone. It definitely needs more spices- I used salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder under the skin and filled cavity with lemon, onion, and garlic. Came out very moist and flavorful. I took the advice of another reviewer and filled the foil with potatoes and then made mashed potatoes with them. Will definitely use this method again but with my own twist on flavors.

Carnation® Quiche Lorraine

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I was disappointed with this. The texture was just off. The only change I made was subbing ham for bacon. I cooked it for more than 45 minutes and it still didn't seem "done" to me. By that I mean that the eggs were cooked but the texture was not firm enough for our liking. The flavor was wonderful though. I probably won't be making this again but if I did I think I would add more eggs to give it a firmer texture.

Super Moist Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
These were pretty good. It was super fast and simple. Will try making in the crockpot next time because the pork chops are much more moist that way.

Southern Baked Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
We enjoyed this last night with some pork loin and steamed asparagus. Easy to put together and great flavor overall. I used seasoned bread crumbs.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Took the advice of others and doubled all spices. To cut calories I substituted splenda for the sugar and used 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup butter instead of the 1/2 cup butter. Had a nice flavor when served with cool whip. Very easy. Did it in a loaf pan and came out looking very nice.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I had to add salt at the end of cooking to enhance flavors. I also added more cumin and jalapenos than the recipe called for. Would also be good with some canned adobo peppers. I would say a good starting recipe but needs modifications. I made in the slow cooker on low 8 hours after soaking overnight.

Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Came out tasty, but I would have liked the texture to have been a bit firmer. Would make again for an easy, no cook method. Everyone else said they liked it as well.

Summer Anytime Crisp Corn Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This was so easy to assemble and quite good. Would be great to take on a picnic or a potluck since it requires no refrigeration. Thanks for the easy recipe!

Merenges

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
These are wonderful! My husband and I couldn't get enough of them. I used lime zest because I didn't have a fresh lemon. This is a keeper. Thanks for the easy, light recipe! Great as a summer dessert.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
I took the advice of another reviewer and dumped all of these ingredients in the crockpot. I cooked it on low for 6 1/2 hours. Was delicious!

Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I usually go for spicy stir fries so this was something different for us to try and we really enjoyed it. It was a last minute find and I decided to make it to use up some frozen chicken breasts. I only had a frozen vegetable blend of sugar snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, and leeks so I substituted that for the broccoli blend. Great on a busy weeknight. Served with brown rice made in rice cooker.

Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This was okay, but being from Texas I prefer my chili really spicy. I decided to try this because of my love for pumpkin. I used all low sodium ingredients and only added 2 tbsp of sugar because I was afraid of it being too sweet. Not bad but just not my taste.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I didn't care for this. Something was just off with the flavor. Will not make again.

Can't Tell They're Low-fat Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
These are great for being lower in fat. I used applesauce instead of the prunes because that is what I had on hand. I also added in a small handful of chocolate chips just to give it a little something extra (even though I know it also added more calories!). This is a great, quick recipe to keep on hand and it doesn't make a whole bunch which is great for just my husband and I.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I think this recipe really depends upon the kind of sausage you use. I used a spicy Italian sausage that I got from a local farmers market. I should have browned it more in the first step because when I added it back into the peppers it wasn't nearly done. As a result, the peppers were overcooked so that I could get the sausage done. But it was still tasty! I also used beer as another suggested and I used fresh herbs since I had them on hand.

Stuffed Zucchini with Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was so good! I used a spicy italian turkey sausage and then omitted the red pepper flakes. I also used halved cherry tomatoes instead of the canned ones. Thanks for the delicious, easy, and nutritious recipe!
