Cajun Pasta Fresca

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Very tasty, thank you! I used a 28-ounce can of Muir Glen diced tomatoes, added 1lb. of shrimp (which I sauteed in the oil and garlic prior to adding tomatoes) and The Spice Hunter cajun seasoning. I ended up adding more cajun seasoning due to personal tastes. Even my son who normally doesn't like anything with "hot" spices loved it.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
We loved this recipe as is! I was curious about the odd combination of ingredients, but it comes together nicely and tastes fantastic. While cooking, I was concerned that the amount of liquid in the bean mixture seemed like way too much but it turned out fine the way I assembled the burritos. First, I spread some of the sweet potato mixture onto the tortilla, then added the bean liquid on top of the sweet potatoes, then a little cheddar cheese. After folding them burrito style, I used the leftover bean mixture to pour over the top, then added more shredded cheddar. I served the burritos with sour cream and Near East brand spanish rice. Thank you so much, this was a great recipe Karena! :)

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
True to their name, these cookies do melt in your mouth and they are very tasty (if you prefer a less sweet cookie). My family likes the flavor a lot, but we prefer a cookie that is a little more firm. Still giving 5 stars as this is just our personal preference.

Simple Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Fantastic! I used fresh spinach (just layered it) and added mushrooms. I also used 1 cup of part-skim ricotta and 1 cup tofu in place of cottage cheese as suggested by another reviewer. I changed nothing else. The recipe will still be 5 stars with cottage cheese, which I'll probably try next time...my family loved it!

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
I served this last night along with rice and peas that I had cooked in chicken broth. It was fantastic...everyone agreed it was a dish to make again and again! I did double the sauce (because we like to spoon it over the rice as well), but did not change any ingredients. I don't understand why some folks felt this didn't have much flavor. It also tasted great as leftovers for lunch today!

Lemon Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
We really think these are great cookies. Just the way we like them, subtle and not too sweet! I didn't have a lemon, so I took another reviewer's suggestion and used 1tsp. each of lemon extract and vanilla. I was also impatient. Instead of chilling and rolling, I scooped little balls onto the cookie sheets and used a drinking glass covered with a damp cloth to smash them down. After cooking and cooling, I tossed them in powdered sugar. Delicious!

Creamy Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Excellent soup for a cold winter night! We added 2 grilled chicken breasts, 2 cloves of garlic and a can of corn. I did add more pepper also, but did not add salt because I used "Better than Bouillon" Chicken Flavor which has sodium (plus we had grilled the chicken breasts with salt and pepper). I used part fat free half and half, heavy whipping cream and 2% milk. I'm not sure of the amounts as I just needed to use up the cream and half and half that I had in the fridge. As other reviewers suggested, I did mix the cornstarch with the milk, adding it at the same time as the parsley so it would simmer for a while longer to thicken. This was a very tasty comfort food soup that we will be making again. Thank you! :)

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
I baked this last night using my bread machine for the first kneading, then transferred it to a loaf pan after it had doubled. I let it rise again until doubled, then baked it at 350F for 35 minutes as another reviewer had suggested. I rubbed butter on the top after taking it out of the oven. My son said this was the best bread I've ever made...and my boyfriend just made french toast with the rest this morning! It was very light and fluffy, with a great texture and flavor. Thank you, we'll be making this again!

Red Wine Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
I made this for dinner last night and my boyfriend is still talking about how great it was this morning! I used a slow cooker with a 2.5lb roast, cooking it for 6 hours (adding mushrooms at the beginning rather than waiting until the end of cooking). The meat was very tender, juicy and flavorful. I cut up a couple pieces of the bacon after frying and added them to the sauce. The only red wine I had was a shiraz, which worked just fine. I also used cornstarch to thicken the sauce at the end, and we served it over spaetzle noodles along with a freshly baked Light Oat Bread (found on this site). We will definitely be making this again and again!

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Fantastic! My boyfriend and son loved this dish. I added a little fat free half and half to make it a bit creamier. It also tasted great the next day as leftovers, heated with a little more half and half. I will definitely be making this again!

Coconut Tofu Keema

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I just made this for dinner. It was fantastic! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and used a can of diced tomatoes and a half can of tomato paste instead of 6 cups tomato sauce. I also used 1.5x the spices...made the bridge of my nose sweat! I will definitely make this again. Thank you!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
This is a great recipe, and so versatile. I did reduce the brown sugar to 1/2 cup as others suggested, and they were plenty sweet. I made them yesterday and between three of us they are already gone today. One tip I would give is to put a plastic sandwich baggie over your hand and spread a little butter on the outside of the bag, then pat the mixture into the pan. It's so much easier that way (I do this with Rice Krispie treats too). I can't wait to try some different varieties! :)

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
Excellent! I used 93% lean ground turkey and 3/4 cup fresh salsa with Parmesan because I didn't have cheddar. It turned out very moist and tasty. We ate it plain, with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!
