Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
If you want to cut some of the fat (and calories) without compromising taste, here are a couple suggestions: - Add 1 cup of 2% milk to the grits when you would have added the half-and-half, and keep on low heat while you make everything else. Every few minutes as it thickens, add a little more lowfat milk, so you end up using 2 C lowfat milk instead of 2 C half-and-half. Add cheese per recipe. - Chop up your bacon and cook it in the skillet/pan until browned, then remove with a slotted spoon. Add your sausages and brown them a little, and remove them with a slotted spoon. Then add your 1/4 C flour to the pan you cooked the meat in, whisking so that you have a thick roux. (If your bacon was really lean you might add 1 TBL of butter.) Cook and stir over med-low until it's medium brown, then increase heat to med-high & add all your vegetables into the roux, stirring for 5-8 minutes until they're soft. Add the chicken broth and Worcestershire, cooking veggies a few minutes while the sauce thickens and they cook a little more, then add back the sausage, bacon and the shrimp and cook until shrimp are done. You will cut out 70 grams of fat and 475 calories by making these small changes, without compromising taste at all!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
I cut back a little on the butter (to 1/4 C) and sugar (to 2/3 C) and these were still plenty sweet and moist.(My bananas were VERY ripe...) Also added the cinnamon & nutmeg per other reviewers. For the crumb top, I added about 3 TBL of chopped pecans for even more toasty crunch!

Quick and Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
I'm not a fan of cilantro so I substituted fresh parsley. It came out great! A fresh tomato diced small is also a nice addition.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I used some frozen "ultimate fish sticks" from a big box store, and swiss chard instead of cabbage. Cut prep time in half, and still delish. Also, I added chopped tomato and onion, and ramped up cumin. Great weeknight dinner!

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
this is delicious even without the artichoke hearts. I skipped them, and tossed the orzo with a couple TBL olive oil, then let cool in the fridge a couple of hours before proceeding. I added a couple TBL of fresh mint and used fresh oregano since I had it handy. Sprinkle with a little paprika for added color and zing!

Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Very easy and good - I added some dry mustard (Colman's) in addition to dijon mustard to make it a little spicier.
