Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
This had pretty good flavors. We did everything as written but covered the skillet while the pork was cooking to try to keep it more moist-and it seemed to work. We left out the feta and used all red cherry tomatoes.

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
Well, when I pulled out my chicken, it was expired. So I went ahead and just made the lentil part, which was easy and tasty. I was worried about waiting too long for them to be done, so I soaked them for probably about an hour (accidentally-I meant it to be 30 minutes...), then they ended up cooking for about 40 minutes. I didn't add salt or any of the tomato sauce stuff. I'll have to try this again with chicken ;)

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
I followed the directions exactly and the only change I made was to use regular flour & cornstarch instead of cake flour. It took me quite a while to separate the eggs (one at a time), add, beat, then repeat. My problem was that I couldn't figure out when it was done-I know a bunch of people commented on that. I ended up slightly overcooking because I never felt like it "sprung" up under my touch :P So the flour that I had used to line the pans burned! Luckily, we were able to scrape it off, but that was disappointing. I found the cake to be a bit dense...I did use whole milk (because I only drink whole milk)-I wonder if that just made it too thick? But I enjoyed making it from scratch and knowing it was whole foods and no preservatives. And it was tasty with a chocolate buttercream icing and vanilla ice cream ;)

Berry Banana Smoothies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This was a fantastic recipe-without the honey! The fruit was definitely sweet enough on its own! I ended up using only 1 cup of vanilla yogurt (didn't know how many cups was in each container-oops), maybe 1.5 or 2 cups of strawberries, and 2 handfuls of ice. So delicious and healthy! OH-and this made enough for FOUR tall mugs full :P Way too much for a snack for 2 people!

Dijon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
This was tasty and my husband made it gourmet by prettily arranging the toppings ;) We didn't measure out the mustard-just made sure to lightly coat-he brushed it on with a basting brush. Also, we used a smaller casserole dish and cooked for about 11 minutes (20 is WAY too long!)

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
This was a-mazing. I'm thrilled to have finally found a chocolate cake that is rich but not (too) sugary! The icing was fantastic and even with all the powdered sugar it still didn't taste only like powdered sugar! Just incredible. The only thing I changed was I used 1/2 cup butter instead of oil. I did have problems getting the cakes out of the pans...and then when I started icing 1/8 of the cake just crumbled off and wouldn't be pasted on with icing. I've never had such a cake fiasco! I don't know if that was because of the butter or not...I'll have to try it with oil and see if it holds together better. But that is no reason not to try this recipe! It was so moist and tasted so good I didn't care that it looked like cliffs that had fallen into the ocean ;) Also, I didn't do 4 layers-I don't think that would even have been possible with the shape of my cakes :P There was extra icing, which was great-I'm always scared I'll run out! Oh, and I baked, cooled, and frosted the cake 1 day before I served it-SO GOOD! I plan to use the icing separately for a less chocolate cake in the near future :)

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
This was so great-like other people said-it's so simple, but great to remember good flavor combinations. I added a small clove of garlic (minced) and omitted the milk and cheese (not part of the diet). So easy and tasty!

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This was fantastic! So tasty and satisfying. You don't need oil at the beginning-the meats will have enough (even lean ground beef). I used dried basil and 2/3 cup dried white navy beans (2 cups after I cooked them). I omitted the pasta and cheese (not in the diet). I also confused my grocery list and ended up with 1 plain can of diced tomatoes, so I used one seasoned and one plain and just sprinkled in some extra oregano (didn't think it needed more basil or garlic :P). This had so much flavor and tasted great days later and even after being frozen and defrosted.

Cantina Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
These had a good flavor. I went the easy route with canned beans, so I followed another person's advice on cutting the recipe down and sauteed 1/4 onion, 1/4 green pepper, 1 stalk celery, and too much garlic (accidentally), then added 1 can pinto beans, 1 can diced tomatoes w/mild green chilis, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp sage, some pepper, and a dash or two of cayenne. Then I let it simmer until the rest of my food was ready (about 15 minutes). I thought it would be too tomato-y, but they added great flavor and texture.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
This had good flavor (I left out the cheese), but I felt like something was missing (probably the cheese :P). But actually, it seemed kind of dry-maybe adding tomatoes or real onions would have helped?

White Bean Breakfast

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I doubled this for 2 people because we left out the toast. I didn't have jalapenos, so I added some cayenne. I also left out the cheese. It was tasty and filling. The lemon on the beans changed the entire flavor (for the better!)

Super Simple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
This was so easy and tasty. I used chopped garlic and sauteed it with the butter for a few minutes before adding the salmon. I left out the salt, so it was just basil. 5 minutes per side was too long on medium heat. Squeezing the lemon wedges over each piece absolutely made the dish!

Zucchini Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
This was simple but pretty good. I diced the zucchini and omitted the cheese. Make sure you add salt and pepper! Also, I was easily able to double this recipe (and make 2 frittatas) using 1/2 an onion and 1 zucchini. It was more filling that way.

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
It was an interesting idea (and seemed great for using up leftover pesto), but the pesto never hardened and I was left with a bunch of gloppy pesto over over-cooked salmon :( I started the pan far from the broiler and gradually brought it nearer until it was directly below-much longer than 8-10 minutes total-and it never burned :P

Thyme-Rubbed Steaks with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
We used top loin steaks and loved the rub (used chopped garlic instead of garlic powder). We cooked the steaks first and then cooked the mushrooms in the steak drippings-so good! We used a cast iron pan and they definitely didn't need such long cooking times!

Scrambled Tofu

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I picked this recipe because I liked the idea of the tomatoes mixing with the tofu, but I found it to be too much-maybe half a can would have been better...but then what to do with the other half? :P I omitted the cheese-not in the diet. I added chopped garlic and a few mushrooms, along with some cayenne and cumin. I also crumbled some firm tofu (not silken). But I still thought it tasted like tofu-not sure how people can mistake it for eggs :P It was a nice change, but I'm not sure it satisfied.

Vegetarian Refried Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Pretty tasty & easy. I quartered the recipe to use just one can of beans, omitted the tomato and salt and used garlic powder because I didn't have time to chop anything. I added extra oil trying to get the right consistency...then I realized it said to add water :P I did and it looked perfect, but by the time we were ready to eat they had dried out a bit. So next time I'll watch more closely and add more water. But good flavor! They'll go with anything.

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I thought it was pretty tasty. I used dried basil and ground cloves (added to the rub), then 1/2 of the brown sugar (next time I'll leave it out entirely, I think). We don't have a grill, so I followed someone's suggestion to cook at 350F for 75 minutes. I dumped the rest of the marinade over the turkey and cooked it-basting at about halfway. It turned out perfectly juicy inside and tasty outside.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
My husband loved this. Normally we cook the onion and garlic in broth and then add the beans, but I followed the recipe and he liked it better. I used a little less than 1/4 tsp cayenne...and probably will use less next time :P I added a little vegetable broth to "boil" the beans, as well as a bit of pepper. I simmered for maybe 15 minutes and then I added a few squirts of lime juice and a few shakes of dried cilantro (couldn't really taste it, but I didn't want to overdo it). Will definitely make again!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
easy and delicious! I didn't add the frosting-it definitely didn't need it! I halved the recipes and put it in a loaf pan...I just didn't need 16 :P I cooked for 20 minutes and the texture was a bit crispy on top and rich and brownie-like underneath :) loved it! will definitely make again!
