Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This was delicious. I had tomatoes from the garden so I made the following changes: - cut an x on the bottom of the tomatoes - boiled and seeded them (although the seeds should disintegrate if you leave them in) - used less oil to make it healthier - added 1 tsp red pepper flakes - added mushrooms and a yellow pepper that were about to go bad. This ended up being delicious! - added 1/2 tb brown sugar (the Splenda blend just because that's what I had) to balance the acidity - added some garlic powder and dried basil at the end just for more flavor. I served with turkey meatballs and whole wheat pasta.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This was delicious! I made exactly as is, except with ground chicken since it was on sale, and brown sugar splenda blend to cut down on sugar. Next time I will probably use a loaf pan just to keep the shape and so the topping stays on top (maybe next time I will also use less water for the topping). I've been trying to find a way to sneak quinoa into our meals - I love it but my husband thinks it's gross. He had no idea this meal was so healthy : ) Thanks Drew!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This was delicious and SO EASY! I made with bone-in pork chops (trimmed), and followed some suggestions and added some corn starch and honey. I just realized I didn't even add any salt or pepper - it didn't need it!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This was delicious. I used a different mix of veggies (what I had on hand - squash, red pepper, shredded carrots). I also ran out of soy sauce so I used half teriyaki. The basil and scallions add a nice touch. I also added about 1 tb. ground flaxseed.

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Considering how easy this was to make, it was DELICIOUS!! I only substituted the dijon with honey dijon. Other than that made as is. I may go a little liter on the spices and lemon zest next time, but I will definitely be making this again.

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
Made this recipe but substituted whole wheat couscous (cooked separately with chicken stock and added to onions, garlic...) in place of rice. It was delicious!!

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
My husband couldn't get enough of this. But I do have some important notes. Many people use will double this recipe since some packaged ground turkey comes in 1 lb. and 1 lb. also fits a loaf pan. If you double the recipe, be sure to stick to the exact doubled measurements or it will overflow. You also have to increase the oven temp to 375 and increase time to 50 - 60 minutes. I also made a ketchup mix (with worcestershire and salsa) and put it on top with some more sliced onions. It really is delicious and EASY!

Tofu Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
This dish was very flavorful and refreshing. I doubled the sauce as other suggested. I ended up adding a lot of flavoring at the end as well (including rice wine vinegar and teriyaki sauce). I also sauteed the tofu for a few minutes and let cool before combining.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
These were phenominal! I followed the recipe exactly exept for small tweeks - I added a generous amt of salt, pepper, garlic powder and sazon to the flour before browning. To cut down fat, I used fat free sour cream and Pam in place of oil, and it came out perfect. Very easy and delicious.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This was delicious! I added raisons which really added a nice sweetness to the dish, and used fresh dill and low fat mayo. I also removed the skins from the chickpeas - I'm not sure how necessary this is, but it's how I was taught by my father and I think it makes the consistancy much smoother. You just rub each chickpea between two fingers and the skin slides right off.

Caramel Popcorn

This was delicious. Followed the recipe as is but with half the butter and a brown sugar Splenda blend. Used 94% fat free Kettle Corn flavored popcorn. Next time I will try it in the microwave as some suggested.

Three-Cheese Mini Macs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
- What holds them together is the sauce & packing them down hard. Easier to pack if the mixture has been refrigerated. Pack down hard. Bake till toasty and let cool in the pan before removing. - I used skim milk and reduced fat cheddar and reduced fat American. - I can make a batch,freeze it and have a single serving whenever I want it.
