Ground Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I don't know how such a simple recipe can be soooo delicious, but it is!! I used Italian-seasoned ground turkey, used chicken broth, and added some garlic granules. I also cut the water back to 6 cups to keep it thicker. I don't know if there's a difference between pearl barley and regular barley-but having used the regular before, I knew 1 cup was way too much-so I added only 1/4 of a cup. Perfect flavor-even without onion or celery which I feel has to be the base for any soup/stew. Very thick and yummy!

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!

Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Definately have the oven at 350, not 450! These are yummy muffins! I didn't have half/half (nor did I want the calories) so I used fat-free evaporated milk. I omitted the cranberries and nuts since the family doesn't care for them. Didn't have quick oats, so I ground 1 cup of regular oats in the blender to make a flour. I also made one recipe with Splenda and one with sugar. My husband did not care for the aftertaste of the Splenda muffins, and with only a 1/3 cup of sugar, this doesn't add much sugar per muffin. I will stick to this next time. I shredded the apple, as well. Very moist, yummy and good-as well as healthy!

Never Bitter Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
So good! Did the recipe exactly as instructed and it was amazing! Not too sweet or tart and refreshing! I do want to try it with Stevia though for a lower calorie drink.

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.

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!

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!

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This is a phenomenal recipe! I didn't have cloves, and instead of using the rotisserie chicken meat I followed the recipe exactly up until adding the chicken. I let chunks of raw chicken thighs simmer in the sauce until they were done. I also only had regular coconut milk (which I saw was quite fattening!) I found the sauce to be a little soupy for my taste, so I drained it into a saucepan and let it reduce for a while before adding the chicken and onions back in. Served it over Jasmine rice with green beans on the side. Hubby called from work just to say the curry was "bad a**"!

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This was phenomenal--really yummy! I was trying to see how I could make potato salad a little more "healthy", and this did it! My husband despises sweet potato, and so I didn't tell him what was in it before he took a bite. He even ate it after I told him what was in it. I also added a small bag of Hormel bacon bits to the salad. To keep it even healthier, I used red potatoes and kept the skins on. VERY GOOD! I will definately make this again! Thanks for the great idea!

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.

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!!

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!!

Steak and Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
This soup was ok. Not sure if I did something wrong, but it was rather tasteless. It's definitely going to need to be doc'ed up.

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This is super yummy! Only thing I did differently was use skim milk because I was out of canned and I also added a sprinkling of nutmeg. Tasted like a pumpkin pie, but the texture was fluffier and lighter. Very good, but I'll probably cut back on the sugar next time.

Impossible Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Really really good flavor! But next time I will probably cut the sugar by 1/2 cup. Waaaay too sweet.

Pina Colada Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
This was soooo good! A huge hit at work-the plate was gone in less than 2 hours-and that was at 7 in the morning! I took the advice of others and used half the amount of rum and used pineapple juice as the other half. The flavor was GREAT, the cake was moist, just delicious!

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!

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!

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!!
