Individual Pumpkin Souffles

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I enjoyed the taste of this dessert...and glad that it is "legal" on South Beach. However, it took longer to cook than the recipe states. I saw that someone else had the same experience, so I had increased the oven temp to 325 and it still took longer. Just keep testing with a knife every few minutes after the stated cook time.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
This was very tasty and easy to do. Made this for guests this past weekend, and they enjoyed it so much they asked for the recipe as well! As another reviewer suggested, I added fresh garlic as well (with the onions).

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
I made this dish as the recipe states with two minor differences - I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used canned instead, and I left the chicken in the pan for the last 5-7 minutes of simmer time. The chicken was very flavorful and juicy and paired up nicely with couscous and steamed veggies. Those who like more sauce should probably shorten the last few minutes of cooking time or increase the liquid. Another hit!

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I have made this twice since Lent started -- my husband and I are hooked! It really isn't difficult to prepare, just takes some extra consideration for the time factor. Worth it for sure! I'm still experimenting with how much red pepper to add, since I don't cook with that very often. This tastes great over brown rice cooked with broth!

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I really enjoyed the flavors and presentation of this dish -- and our dinner guests did too! I served it over a pasta that was a whole wheat blend for the added health benefit. I also reduced the butter to 2T and used some "butter substitute" spray to make up the difference. To make the asparagus prep easier, I chopped the spears into 1 inch pieces BEFORE steaming them in the microwave for 4 minutes.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
Everyone loved this!! I don't think I'll be making this often because it does require a lot of work to juice the lemons. But I will say it was easy to substitute Splenda for the sugar, and it tasted delicious and no one noticed the difference. Summertime in a glass!

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
Oh my goodness!! This is a fantastic way to enjoy shrimp. And by eliminating the butter or replacing it with "I can't believe it's not" we can enjoy it while on the South Beach diet! Since we do not have a grill, I broiled them in the oven. Gotta watch them so they don't get over-cooked, but the flavors are phenomenal. Serve this with "Strawberry Spinach Salad I" for a really tasty treat.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
Since finding this recipe two months ago, I have made these many times with great results! Cutting a raw sweet potato lengthwise is NOT an easy task, so choose the more narrow ones. Definitely use the ziptop bag method for seasoning. At the suggestion of other reviewers, I added more than just paprika. We enjoy garlic salt, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Also I've found that you can cook these at 350, 375 or 400 and just adjust the baking time accordingly. Foil on your baking sheet makes for the easiest clean up!

Apple Filled Chicken in Pecan Creme Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
This recipe tastes DELICIOUS and it was pretty easy to make. I still haven't figured out how to successfully make a "pocket" in the chicken breast, so I just kind of butterfly it open and fold closed once it's stuffed. Toothpicks help to keep it together. The first few times I made this, I did just the chicken without the sauce. The sauce was an elegant addition when we had dinner guests. I took the advice of others and cut the sugar to about 2 or 3 Tbsp, and it came out wonderfully!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
No lie -- this tastes so good, I challenge you to find someone who doesn't like it! Okay, it helps if they like sweet things. In fact I will cut the sugar in half next time I make it. Following others suggestions, I substituted with balsamic vinegar and used half strawberries, half mandarin oranges. And since we're on the South Beach diet, I used Splenda instead of sugar. I'm sure I will make this many times and share the recipe with friends and family.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
I've made this several times, and it's always a hit. Everytime I've shared it with a new audience, someone has asked for the recipe. I use Low Sodium Club Crackers instead of the graham crackers, which I think is closer to an eclair. Enjoy!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
For my first time making a turkey, this was really a great way to go! I think that a more experienced cook might decide to add a few more herbs/spices -- but my whole family applauded the recipe as is.

Cavatelli, Broccoli and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
My cousin gave me this recipe to try, and my husband and I LOVED it!! Not exactly a "heart healthy" dish, but I'm thinking of substituting some or all of the butter for olive oil next time.
