Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This recipe is great! I made a few changes..like alot of people I used olive oil instead of butter. I used 1/2 cup of red wine and I also added 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes and a 15 oz can of stewed tomatoes. My husband and I loved it!

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This was yummy althought I did change it around. I used a whole can of tuna and a whole package (6 oz) of plain greek yogurt. I also squeezed 1/2 lemon and used about 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard. I skipped the parsley and the green onion.

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This is a very tasty recipe. I changed it a bit because we try to follow a low sodium diet. I kept the hoisin sauce, chili paste and soy sauce the same (1 tablespoon of each). I used way more chicken (3 freezer ready packages of Perdue Fit and Easy chicken which I believe is 6 breasts). I used two cups of chicken broth and I quadrupled the amount of ginger and red pepper flakes (2 teaspoons of ginger, 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes). I was scared my version of this recipe would be bland but it wasn't. The red pepper flakes give it the perfect amount of spice. It was very tasty and healthy.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I love this recipe! I have been making enchiladas and using this recipe exactly as written for over a year now. Just yesterday I tried to make it a bit healthier by substituting the cream cheese with greek yogurt. It tasted great..the only thing is that the yogurt is thinner so the consistency was a bit different. If you are going to use greek yogurt, use the Chobiani 2% because the 0% will be too thin...even though it's not fat free, the 2% is still way healthier than reduced fat cream cheese.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This is one of my regular recipes. It tastes great, is easy to make and is healthy. The only modifications I make are: 1 tablespoon or so of brown sugar (as opposed to 1/4 cup) A few teaspoons of hot sauce Omit the salt (I can never understand the need to add salt to a recipe where the ingredients already contain sodium)

Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This recipe was very good and so easy to make! I skipped the chives, pepper and salt (I never add salt to anything) and it turned out great.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This is a great marinade! The only change I make is that I use 1/4 cup soy sauce and 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce. I also add a tablespoon or so of balsalmic vinegar. I keep everything else the same. It's definitely a keeper!

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
This was a very yummy and easy recipe. I basically doubled almost all the ingredients (beef, diced tomatoes, sauce, corn, water, spices). I cooked the beef first in a non-stick skillet and added it to the pot. When everything boiled I added a whole pound(the whole box) of elbow maccaroni. It was enough liquid but I felt like it could use a little more so I added about 1/2 cup of salsa. I should also add that I added a teaspoon of cumin and a dash of cayeene pepper. I would definitely make again!

Slow Cooker Simple Beef Bourguignonne

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
My husband and I liked this recipe..It was a bit bland so we weren't in love with it but it was very easy to make and not very salty unlike most slow cooker recipes. We would make it again so it is a keeper. The only change I made was doubling the meat so that it would be less soup-y. I still had plenty of liquid.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
We really liked this recipe. I made a few changes: 1. Substituted breasts for thighs because we don't liked dark meat. 2. Didn't brown the chicken first. 3. Skipped cilantro. 4. Added slightly more salsa and broth (1 1/2 cups of salsa and 3/4 cups of broth). 5. Cooked on low for 6 hours and added the peppers and beans at the last hour. It was very good!

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I love this recipe! The only thing I change is that I use 2 teaspoons each of ground cumin and chili powder (as opposed to 2 tablespoons). I also mix the beans in with the salsa mixture to prevent from drying. I cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil and bake for 1.5 hours.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
My husband and I really liked this recipe. I took some of the advice of others but not all... I basically doubled the meat, the golden mushroom soup, the water and worcestershire sauce. About an hour before it was done, I added a package of sliced fresh mushrooms to the crockpot. I kept the cream cheese the same (4 oz) and added 4 oz of sour cream. It produced a lot of liquid so next time I may even use 3 lbs of meat.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I loved the way this turned out! The reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it fails to mention that the meat should be browned first. I used ground turkey instead and I browned it on a skillet, drained off the excess grease and threw the zucchini seeds onto the skillet and cooked them for a few minutes with the meat. Also, 1 cups of bread crumbs seemed to be too much. I think I might have used about 1/4- 1/2 cup each of cheese and breadcrumbs..I just added enough to make the filling more solid and didn't really measure. It tased great!

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

This recipe was very good! I only used 2 tablespoons of butter, marinated the chicken overnight and baked it for 45 minutes and it was very tasty!

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This recipe came out great! I used about 2 pounds of top round london broil..it's way cheaper than flank steak and I figured it shouldn't matter too much since the slow cooker makes the meat tender anyway. I didn't double the rest of the ingredients though and they were perfect for the 2 lbs of meat. I did add some fresh slices of bell peppers and broccoli two hours before it was done. Very good!

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Great salad! I love chick peas and feta cheese so I knew I would like this. I skipped the olives because my husband hates olives but it is still delicious without them!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
This recipe was pretty good and I'm not even a big fan of bbq sauce. I basically cut in half the amount of bbq sauce, salad dressing, brown sugar and worcestershire sauce while using about 3 lbs of chicken breast and it was still plenty of sauce. Overall, a good and easy recipe.

Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
We tried this recipe last night and really liked it. It's very tasty! I didn't change a thing. However, after 45 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees, the chicken was NOT fully cooked so we had to put it back in. Next time I will bake it for at least 1 hour at 400-425 degrees.

Slow Cooker Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I followed this recipe exactly and my husband and I thought it was just ok. It was not bad but definitely not great. We thought it was on the bland side and probably won't be making it again. But on the plus side, we both agreed that it was rather healthy.
