Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I make this often. SO easy and super yummy - you can cook the carrots as much as you'd like - if you like them a little crisp or soft - a perfect side for any meat and potatoes type dinner.

Best Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
just threw everything in a boal, mixed it up and put in the casserole dish - didn't microwave anything. Adding cheese in w/o putting on top was perfect. I put some FF onions in the mix, too, as well as on top - just a light sprinkling - turned out great - not good when the sides are better than the bird! LOL

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
this is the best pork recipe I've found on this site. I adjusted as follows - halved recipe for just 2 of us - skipped onion (didn't have fresh and we don't care ALL that much for it), skipped salt altogether - used 1 tsp cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce. threw in a bit of worchestire sause cause we love that flavor. dbl'd black pepper. SO juicy, nice kick without overpowering pork - served with mashed potatoes and green beens, used left overs as pulled pork sandwiches - truly an awesome recipe - will definitely be keeping and using often.

Savory Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
we tweaked it a bit. I emailed this recipe to my husband to get started before I left work. He took the recipe, eyeballed all the ingredients instead of measuring and used Jack Daniels BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. He reduced the amt of sauce to just a simple glaze, and cut apples in 1/8th's instead of thin slices. He servied it and it was AMAZING. Flavors were great, the bbq roasted apples were VERY flavorful and fun. the boneless thick pork chops were SUPER juicy and perfectly done. cooked for about 40 min I think - our oven isn't the greatest - might take less time for you. Served w/ brown rice and green beans. Will be a staple in our home for making pork chops.

Favorite Quacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
Obviously I love my own recipe - but this last time I made it, was the best it's ever turned out. Make sure those avacados are RIPE - I researched picking avacados online - i recommend going to a good grocery store and buying them a few days in advance, put them in a paper bag at room temperature, keep them dry and then use them the day of your party. Don't use the whole batch of cilantro - it does tend to over power - I used a half a batch - feel free to add as many jalepenos as you so desire. If the avacodos are rip and unbruised, though, you really can't go wrong. I LOVE THIS GUAC

Herbed Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
I tweaked just a little bit - I threw some slabs of butter under the skin - they didn't have whipped veggie cr chs, so used whipped chive instead - dbl'd all other seasonings - used a 6lb turkey breast....put the spread on the bird the night before and threw it in the crock pot it a small amt of low sodium chicken broth in the bottom - threw it in the next morning and cooked on high for close to 6 hrs but didn't need that long - trying to get the darn bird out of the crock pot, it basically imploded it was so tender - FELL APART - no carving necessary! extremely tender and juicy even after it cooled and reheated next day - this will be our standard Thxgiving recipe from now on. holy yum

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
My boyfriend and I loved it! I made it like the recipe asked, except I only used an 1/8 cup of Peanut butter and i added Cilantro with the green onions and chicken. I think the Cilantro made ALL the difference. Sas very good and will definitely make again! ***ammendment We still make this all the time - just wanted to add that we've also used crunchy chow mein noodles as a topping when we didn't have all the ingredients and it's great that way too! Cook up the chicken in sesame seed oil and garlic, sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on it instead of peanuts and it's really awesome that way, too!

Cinnamon and Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
super simple and easy - we just used a bag of baby carrots instead of chopping/cleaning the reg carrot stalks - great way to make a carrot for a nice meal - takes it up a notch w/o having to try too hard. thanks!

Baked Zucchini

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I LOVED this stuff - it makes WAY to much stuffing for just one large zucchini though - I could use it up in about 10 zucchini's = great for a party appetizer that way, though - and u can use the cream cheese stuffing on crackers or as a veggie dip on it's own, too, if you have left overs!

Artichoke Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
So, I have some ammendments to this recipe after making it a few times for friends w/ diet restrictions - this weekend, i only had 2 cans of artichoke for this recipe - and I dbl'd the veggie's and spices. I thought it was WAY BETTER. Still super artichokey, but was more diverse in flavor. Also used half heavy whipping cream and half soy milk - didn't turn out as thick like a dip, but was still creamy. gluten/dairy free option! use 3 tblsp diluted cornstarch instead of flour - use soy milk instead of whipping cream. worked great!

Figs with Goat Cheese, Pecans and Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
yuuuuuuuuum.....left out pecans cause didn't have - used garlic/herb goat chs, used pitted dates because couldn't find figs at the store - cooked bacon a little bit, only until just starting to brown and still very plyable - through under high broiler for 5 min and turned out great. Will definitely be making again as my staple party appetizer.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I LOVE this lasagna. My friends always ask me to make it when we get together for girls night. You do have to make sure to really squeeze as much liquid out of the frozen spinach as you can - took me a few times making it to get the right consistency. You can probably use less broth as well. All in all, though, great flavors, nice and fairly healthy - great vegetarian option - I don't even miss the meat.

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
have been asked repeatedly to make this when hosting dinner for friends. Quite scrumption. Careful not to overpower potatoes w/ seasoning - but I love rosemary potatoes, so can't really go wrong for me.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
nice flavorful steaks - didn't spend the money on filget mignon - can use on any piece of red meat, really - I like my steak with bold warm flavors so this fit the bill. Easy to keep from blackening, too. one of my favorites.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I took reviewers advice and did a 1/2 cup veg oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce. This is very moist and yummy. I will, however, in the future, dbl the amt of spices. i can barely taste them. I might also add more pumpkin - again, very mild flavor. I used 2 9X5 loaf pans instead of 3 7x3. Still turned out, but had to keep it in the oven an extra 20 min.

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
not a WHOLE lot of flavor, but easy enough for something different to do with chicken. Will be making again, maybe adding some more garlic or some thai seasonings to give it a little kick.

Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars are the alterations I made and that it still wasn't perfect. But overall, love the idea and using fresh/organic ingredients. Followed many other reviewers suggestions: Used Marinated Artichoke Hearts Added sundried tomatoes, black olives and ready to eat edamame Left out onions because none of us like them. Used turkey bacon instead of panchetta dbled recipe for dinner party but still used only 1 bag of pasta. was perfect amt we served w/ rosemary rolls and ceasar salad. Balsamic was a little strong since there weren't any other seasonings used - was going to add packet of dry italian dressing but forgot - will definitely use it next time - wish there was a little more of a sauce - maybe add some corn starch to the liquid at the bottom to thicken it up? But loved the combo of ingredients and leftovers still tasted great - will make again - great for dinner parties with everyone bringing a side or appetizer since is a full meal in 1 pot. ****ammendment - Made this a 2nd time but halved it - added the italian seasoning packet and used balsamic dressing instead of vinegar - also used some corn starch to thicken sauce. I liked it much better w/ the dry italian and thickening up the sauce - will stick w/ balsamic vinegar cause I like the strong flavor - left out chicken for vegetarians and didn't miss it - great veggie meal w/ lots of flavor!

No Bakes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
can't really go wrong here - only change I made was to use soy milk and I add the PB to the chocolate and let it melt together, THEN remove from heat and add the oats - way easier to get a good coating and uses fewer dishes.
