Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Very good! Needs less coconut and more whipped topping. Next time I will use 1/2 the nutmeg and cinnamon.

Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
The black beans just gave it a weird texture. Everything else was fine. I was a little confused by the name. Stuffed to me means inside and the cheese is just mixed in.

Taco Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
For this as is, it is not for us. I had to change a lot of things around. Changes: *Ground Chicken *no chili beans * light ranch dressing *fat free greek yogurt as sour cream sub *bag of salad with romaine and iceberg *added in fresh cilantro Changes to the makings: I mixed the meat with the dressing after it was cooked before serving. So if we needed to we could eat this later with no problems reheating. Since I had to make so many changes I had to lower the star rating. This did help give me a great idea though for a taco salad.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Hubby is Filipino and has a Filipino mama. He said this was close to what she makes but too much vinegar. Also he said you need bay leaves and peppercorn. He said there is something else but her forgets what. For me this was very salty. I never had my MIL adobo so I can not compare.

Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Took a little longer to cook. I used Rice Flour to make this healthier. Next time I might pan fry the apples a little before mixing them in. Hubby said the icing is very much needed and adds a nice touch.

Albino Pasta

Add any veggies you like. This is much healthier than what I use to do when using butter. This is easy and a nice comfort food.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Super easy but using water lacked flavor so I used chicken broth. I think homemade broth will be better if I ever make this again. It was a bit salty. I will also use Bisquick to make the dumplings. I omitted the onions.

Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
I would have given this 5 stars but the person should advise people to use greek yogurt. You can't go making Tzatziki without greek yogurt. Other than that it is perfect!
