Healthier Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
My husband LOVED this meatloaf and he usually is jut okay about meatloaf. The only substitution i made was using panko crumbs b/c that's all i had and adding garlic powder. threw some cut potatoes on the top to cook with the meatloaf and it was good to go. Even my 9month baby loved it! Thanks for the recipe. It's super easy and definitely a keeper for us.

Cranberry Nut Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
Great recipe that can easily be made to your liking as long as you stick to the measurements. Adding too much affects the binding and the bars don't stay together well. I add 1.5tsp of cinnamon for personal taste.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
This is an awesome recipe. I had a bunch of blueberries I needed to use up. They started to get soft and shrivel so i wanted to try something differnt from pancakes or muffins and this recipe is perfect for that! I didn't have any shortening on hand, so i used yogurt butter to try and make it more healthy. Per the suggestions of others, I also used 1/2 cup of whole wheat pastry flour (different from regular whole wheat flour) and 1C of white flour, and it came out great. By accident i put in 3/4 cup of 2% milk instead of 1/2 cup, so i added a little extra flour to make up for it, and it came out a moist blueberry cake. I also read from someon else's review and used 1.5tsp of almond extract. YUM! Definitely a keeper. I highly recommend it!

Robert's Homemade Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Just used this tonight to season up my pasta sauce and it turned out great. I halved the recipe and didn't have any pork on hand and it still came out great. I also didn't have any mace or nutmeg to replace it so I used a pinch (literally) of cloves and it was enough to enhance the flavor without overpowering. Didn't even use casings to make sausage, but mixed it all together in a bowl. Highly recommend, esp if you have ground turkey and don't know what to do with it!

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This is a great, easy recipe that is good for feeding a group of people and is pretty low maintenance. It's a lot of chopping in the beginning, but after it goes in the oven, it was the perfect time to make potatoes I served with it. (I cut up sweet and red potatoes I had in the fridge and fried it with some onions and green peppers- it was a great side) It fed 5 people on half the recipe. I used kielbasa since I didnt have any ham, cut the bread into cubes an hr before to let it harden, added some baby spinach I had in the fridge, and used whole milk & reduced fat cream cheese. People loved it. It was a lot of chopping, but its worth it. You can get away with cutting bigger pieces, so it's not that bad. Definitely a keeper.

Sunday Brunch Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This recipe is so easy and tasty. I made 10 of everything b/c the canadian bacon came in a pack of 10 and that's what fit in my glass pan. I used whole milk instead of whipping cream and it was still great. I also added some dried parsley and black pepper for color contrast. I had a bit of trouble trying get the egg to sit, but it is okay even if it doesnt. I love poached eggs and this was pretty close to it, but with no effort. Everyone ate two eggs with some toasted italian bread and were stuffed. Definitely easy to make for a group of people.

Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
This recipe gets 5 starts b/c of the dill sauce. That stuff is great! I didn't have any horseradish on hand, so I went with someone else's suggestion and used dijon mustard, but added 2 cloves of freshly minced garlic to give it some of the kick it would have gotten from the horseradish. I also double the amount of dill. I found the cooking time needed to be longer, esp the broiling time, but if you just keep a close eye on it, you can figure out how long it needs to be cooked. The salmon was fine, nothing special, but paired with the sauce made it awesome. Very easy recipe...I definitely plan on using this in the future...even with other types of fish. Maybe a breaded white fish next time for some texture. I think it would taste yummy with the dill sauce. No more tartar sauce for me! Thanks for the recipe.

Ricotta Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Not sure how this only has 4 stars. It's fantastic. I find I need to double the recipe for 2ppl though. I also opt for using part-skim ricotta. I used the fat free ricotta once and it didn't taste great, so maybe that's why it's only 4 stars. I also use 2 eggs when I double it, a splash of vanilla, a pinch of salt and the zest of a lemon and juice from half of it. It is soooo yummy. Add some bananas and blueberries and yogurt, you have a healthy high protein, low carb breakfast. Enjoy!

Leftover Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
just made these. solid 4 stars based on the additions from the reviews. Like many ppl i added Parmesan cheese, italian seasoning & chicken stock. i tasted it before i added the egg. Flavor wise, i would give this 5 stars. texture wise it's a 3, which is why i net out at a 4. I couldn't get a super good crust on it, i guess i would have to deep fry it, which i didn't want to do to keep it healthy. when i think croquettes, i think crunchy, crispy, which these weren't exactly. but they taste great and are worth making.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Made it for the first time today and it came out good. I followed a few alterations recommended by previous writers and added some of my own. I added about 1/4 cup of low fat milk to the mashed potatoes to make them more creamy, and sauteed the onions with some garlic. We're big fans of garlic mashed potatoes. I could only find 10oz canned beef gravy in the store, but that worked well. I definitely recommend adding gravy & the worchestire sauce. Made a big difference in flavor. Also used frozen peas for taste and color. I will definitely be making this again.

Spinach Salad with Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Just tried this recipe and for my dad and husband, and everyone loved it! I made some modifications based on a salad I had in a restaurant once that was similar. I used baby spinach, sauteed thinly diced potatoes in the bacon drippings until they got crispy adding salt & pepper, then used the remaining bacon grease (there is plenty left to use for the dressing) to saute the onions and make the salad accordingly. It makes it a bit more labor intensive, but MUCH more tasty. I omitted the mushrooms and eggs b/c I made a sausage & veggie quiche to serve with the salad. Also didn't have cider vinegar on hand so I substituded with red wine vinegar. Used regular sugar too. I would definitely double the dressing, and we're not heavy dressing people. It was great! Will def be keeping ths one.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Great recipe. I had to improvise with what I had on hand. I made this on the stove because I used a rotisserie chicken that I shred. I didn't use beer because I'm not a big fan of the taste. I didn't really want a soup and wanted something more like chili, so I only replaced the beer with half a can of chicken stock. I also sauteed the onions and a red pepper with fresh garlic that I chopped up for extra taste and texture. I only used a 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes with mild green chilies (that still had a decent kick). I omitted the tomato sauce. It sounds like a lot of changes, but it was all very minor stuff. After 2hrs on the stove on low....my husband loved it! The recipe has a lot of flexibility, and is so easy and good.

Macaroni and Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I made a "healthier" version of this recipes for Thanksgiving and got great reviews. The orginial recipe looked too rich and heavy for my taste, so I took out a bunch of stuff to make it work as a side dish. I thought the flavors and the spices were great, but I made the following modifications to make it healthier without compromising too much of the flavor. I omited the sour cream and cream cheese b/c I didn't have any; I used 2 cups of grated Gouda and 2 cups of Cheddar instead of 4 cups each; I sprinkled a generous amount of parmesan cheese on top.I only used 1 Tbsp of butter for the noodles; I used 8 strips of turkey bacon and cooked the onions in the bacon fat without oil in a nonstick pan, and also double the panko per everyone's suggestions. People were saying the prep time was a lot longer than listed, and for me it was because of the thickening of the milk. I took me about 20 minutes for all the flour and butter to melt in the milk, and if I had known it would take that long, I would have started it the same time I boiled water for the noodles. Some reviews said their mixture looked soupy, so I added 5 heaping Tbsp of flour and added a bay leave to this milk while it thickened. I think if I used all cheese and butter, it would be too heavy for my taste. This way I could eat more of it without feeling TOO guilty. I really liked it though and will definitely be making it again! Hope this helps anyone looking for a "healthier" version of this recipe.
