Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
I have an almost identical recipe that I've been using for a few months now. My family loves it! My recipe calls for angel hair pasta, shrimp, in place of sausage, and cherry tomatoes cut in half instead of canned. My personal additions are sliced mushrooms, preferably fresh, and asparagus cut in 1" lengths. Broccoli would also be a good addition. This is a very light dish perfect for hot summer nights.

Gordon's Berry Breakfast Drink

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I make a version of this smoothie everyday for breakfast. It's quick, yummy and keeps me going all morning. My version for one 16 oz. serving is: 6 oz. vanilla fat-free yogurt, 1/2-1 banana, 1/2 c. strawberries, 1/3 c. blueberries, all cut in chunks. Any or all fruit can be frozen (if you don't have any frozen fruit, use a couple of ice cubes) If you need to thin it out, use any juice, milk or soymilk to desired consistency. I need to add flax to my diet, so I also toss in 1 T golden flaxseeds. For a change of pace, substitute any fresh fruit such as peaches, kiwi, cantaloupe, raspberries, etc., and use any yogurt flavor you prefer. Tip: Fruits with a thin skin, such as peaches, apples, nectarines and such don't need to be peeled first, just cut into chunks. Benefits ~ added fiber and all of the nutrients the fruit has to offer.

Perfect Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Your recipe is very aptly named. This was hands-down the most fantabulous steak I have ever eaten!! The marinade was delicious and the meat almost melted in my mouth, it was so tender. Good-bye Tenderloin, this is my new Fave!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
2nd Attempt: I wanted to love this recipe, so I made it again this morning. It was like night and day! I love it with the changes I made: I increased the whole wheat flour to 1.5 cups and decreased the white flour to .5 cup, subbed .5 cup applesauce for the banana and eliminated the oil, used strawberries (I was out of blueberries), added 1 tsp. cinnamon, and as before, subbed flax for wheat germ, and soymilk for buttermilk. Baked for 20 min. They were perfect and tasted amazing! 1st Attempt: I was disappointed :(( I used regular oats for quick cooking, ground flax for wheat germ, and soymilk for buttermilk. Everything else was the same. They were a soggy mess in the middle. I baked them for an additional 15 min. (!) with no improvement in the texture. I'm thinking eliminating the banana might help??
