Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2002
Delicious!! I'm just not seeing where people are getting the 79g fat per serving, or that it calls for 2 avacados? I see 33g fat and 1/2 avacado. Maybe it was fixed. But how I figured it out, if you use w/w high fiber bread and fat-free cream cheese, I come up with about a 400 cal sandwich...or about 7 Weight Watcher's points. You could even omit the oil as you already get fat from the avacado. I definatly will make this sandwich again and again!

Chickpea Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
I really love this soup and have given the recipe to several friends. Like the suggestion said, I use veggie boullion to keep it vegetarian. I pretty much make it as the recipe says, though I was a little confused that the ingredient list called for mixed veggies while the directions said to add green beens. I used the green beans anyway and it came out awesome! Very wholesome. Though I had to fib and tell my kids the sweet potatoes were carrots so they would eat it!

Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I made this recipe for my hubby and his buddy's at work. They LOVED it! The last time he told them I was sending something in, they asked "Is she making the hoagie dip again??"

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
This recipe deserved 10 stars! I used chicken breast, boiled and shredded. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. I also found that Texas Pete's buffalo chicken sauce worked the best. I made this twice, once in the baking dish, then in the crockpot. A word of advice--if making for a crowd and want to keep it warm in a slow cooker, be sure the cooker's low temp is really low. I came back to check on the dip only to see that the heat was too high and the dip had separated. Despite this, everyone raved about it, and 4 months later I'm still getting co-workers asking for the recipe. GREAT recipe!!

Graham Crisps

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I've made these with both graham and saltine crackers. I think I prefer the saltine version. I like using slivered almonds. Overall, though, very yummy and easy to make!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
These cookies were SOOOO yummy! The only change I would make would be to omit the salt next time-for some reason they were very salty, but delicious all the same! Wouldn't these be good w/ butterscoth chips?? Great recipe!

Chicken Chili II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This chili is PHENOMENAL!! I was hesitant to cook the chicken as long as the recipe said for fear of it drying out. So I cooked all the veggies until soft, then added the diced chicken and spices to cook for a few minutes before adding the liquid. Regardless, this was a very yummy recipe which got rave reviews when a bowl was brought to a very picky friend! I did use the cornmeal to thicken it, as well.

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Wow, this is the first time I've ever given such a poor review. I omitted the MSG and used rice vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar (didn't have any). I used tofu instead of chicken (which came out fantastic), and was glad I didn't add the tofu to the pan of sauce. The sauce was WAAAY too thick, even after adding an additional 1/4 cup of water at the end--reminded me of a satay sauce. I also had only used 1/2 cup of sugar and the sauce ended up way too sweet. I will not make this again. I am really disappointed because General Tsao's chicken is my husband's favorite, and I was really hoping to find a fab recipe to knock his socks off. :(

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
These pancakes were very yummy! I chose to use 100% whole WHITE flour to add some fiber (but doesn't make dense, flat pancakes), added about a teaspoon of vanilla, and used canned milk for a more nutrient-dense recipe for my kids. I also blended one of the bananas along with the wet ingredients in my Vitamix. The other banana I sliced into the finished batter. My daughter said "These are really good pancakes! They're fluffy but crispy around the edges." Great banana flavor. Definately will make these again!

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I LOVED this bread! I did do a few modifications, though. For starters, I used 100% whole WHITE flour-I tell you, this is a great way to get extra fiber into your cooking and, I swear, your family won't even notice! Second, didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I used 2 teas. cinnamon and 1/2 teas. ginger. I thought that 3 cups of sugar was WAAAY over the top, so I used 1 3/4 cups white sugar and 1/4 cup of molassas. I also cut the oil to 1/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup Smart Balance butter spread, and 1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt. This bread was phenomenal!! Moist, moist, and did I say moist?? I made a cream cheese frosting for it, and having made half of the recipe into muffins, it was the top request for my kid's school snacks that week. I will be keeping this recipe in my recipe box and making it often!!

Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was sooooo yummy! Very garlicky, huge feta taste...it was great on seasoned toast rounds. I can't see thinning it with milk, though, like some suggested. I think it would really take away that kick and mellow it out too much. The only think I did differently was to mix all the ingredients with the mixer except the feta and then mix it in at the end. I liked the idea of chunks to give it a bit of texture. Great recipe!

Banana Bread VIII

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was a very yummy recipe. I did what someone else suggested by adding crushed pineapple in place of one of the bananas. I used whole white flour, used strawberry/banana yogurt in place of the fat, and subbed 3 tablespoons of the sugar with molassas. I also cooked it in an 8x8" pan and it only took about 35 min. to cook. Very moist and almost buttery-tasting, which was odd since there was no fat in it!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This wasn't too bad. I used ground beef instead of turkey (it's all I had), subbed a can of green chilis for the yellow pepper (out of that, too). Very strong acidic tomato taste for my liking, but my husband enjoyed it. Said he never would have tasted it if I'd told him the "secret ingredient". The pumpkin adds nutrients as well as mellowing out the chili. Nice!

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
These got rave reviews at my Thanksgiving potluck! They went like crazy! Didn't change a thing except for chopping the peppers instead of leaving them in strips so they wouldn't come out stringy when you took a bite. Great flavor and lots of people asked for the recipe!!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This is a suprisingly tasty dip for one with so few ingredients. This is the same recipe as the one on the back of the large Hormel bacon bits bag-so save yourself some trouble and use those! Yummers!!

Cottage Noodles and Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
This was ok, kind of bland. Actually, I was very suprised we didn't care for it because our family loves cabbage and noodles! I used egg noodles, and as other suggested, added some sliced turkey kielbasa at the end. Overall, I was very disappointed because the recipe got such high ratings and sounded so yummy.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This is a great way to get the family to eat sweet potatoes! Very yummy! I only had a Corland apple, but it worked great. I also forgot to add the milk, but it came out fantastic all the same. I will definately be making this again!

Fruit-Topped Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
These were very yummy pancakes! I didn't have any raspberries so I used blueberries instead. I wasn't too crazy about the sauce. It tasted good, but almost too bananaey (is that a word?). It also came out kind of foamy-maybe I mixed it too long. The only other change that I did was to sub 1/4 of a cup of vanilla coffee creamer as I didn't have enough milk. These will definately made again, but will probably use a different fruit syrup or regular maple. Awesome pancakes, though!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This was an ok recipe. My husband said it was a little dry, and it did seem to dry up quickly by the next day even after being tightly covered. It had a good flavor, though. I think I just like more cake-like cornbread.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I made this for Easter dinner. Not my favorite recipe, but not bad! Nice mild flavor-it cooked up nice and creamy and due to there being no milk there was no separation, which was nice. It tasted better a few days later after being doc'd up with some add'l seasoning. I think I prefer the traditional recipe (one's w/o soup).
