Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
I love Marsala, and was craving this dish, but had no Marsala wine in the house and was very unmotivated to go get some. So I used a bottle of sweet white wine someone had given us as a housewarming gift (we don't drink sweet wine, so it sat in the fridge for 2 months.) It turned out great! I also only used baby portobello mushrooms. They have a great texture, like really tender steak. Also added garlic, and like many others said, sauteed them with the mushrooms before adding everything else. I added about 2 TBS of Greek yogurt at the end to make it a but creamier, which worked wonderfully. Delicious over whole wheat pasta with a spinach salad! Felt like I was dining out!

Baked Trout Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
My new favorite way to cook trout! I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream (It tastes EXACTLY the same for cooking purposes with WAY less fat an calories.) Also minced some garlic and carmelized it a bit before adding it into the sauce...our household LOVES garlic and it was a nice compliment to the other flavors. And I agree, you don't need nearly this much sauce for 1 pound of trout. I make it with about 1/3 of the Greek yogurt (sour cream in the recipe) but leave all the seasonings the same. Such a great way to incorporate more fish into your diet!

Banana Brown Sugar Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
I think this recipe is great for children, but I made some changes to make them for "grownups". 1) I used a "weight control" banana bread oatmeal packet (less sugar, more fiber. etc). 2) I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour. 3) I used 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (delicious!) 4) I substituted applesauce for the oil. After reading the other reviews, I agreed and used 1/2 the amount of brown sugar and baking powder instead of baking soda and salt, AND I let the oatmeal sit in the milk for 10 minutes before mixing everything else. Finally (seems I made a lot of changes...) I added some cinnamon to compliment the banana, around a tsp or so. I used butter flavored Pam cooking spray on the skillet so I could omit buttering them after they were cooked. My boyfriend and me ate them up quick...and my dog really enjoyed the little pancake I made out of the leftover batter! I had no problems with the batter being runny...maybe some of the changes I made fixed that!
