My Grandmother's French Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Tasty! It's nice to be able to enjoy a creamy dressing that isn't high in fat. I don't use sugar in order to lower the calories. In its place I use a little bit of honey and the rest of the sweetness comes from stevia. It's probably not as thick as the original recipe, but the taste is still great.

Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Yummy! Made this last night, was very easy to prepare and not time-consuming which I like. A very healthy recipe even though it is incredibly filling. Would also be good with shredded chicken.

Baked Potato Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Great appetizer dip to eat with potato chips or vegetables. I like that it was easy to make and required very little effort and absolutely no preparation, because sometimes you don't have time to make anything too involved.

Almond-Crusted Halibut Crystal Symphony

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
I haven't yet eaten this recipe exactly as it's written, as I wanted something healthier and made it without any butter, but even the healthier version tasted great - it was rich and you felt like you were eating something decadent even though it was healthy. I substituted a little olive oil in place of the butter, and instead of heavy cream I used fat free half and half. I used a combination of almonds and corn flakes in place of the bread crumbs. I liked the way the flavor of the sauce blended with that of the fish. The crunchy coating on top of the fish was also delicious.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This is one of my favorite recipes, I'm so glad I found it. It is a hearty, satisfying fall/winter soup. Even if you're a little turned off by the word 'pumpkin' and 'soup' in the same sentence, give it a try. The pumpkin is not overpowering, and the way it blends with the black beans is really delicious. My husband was skeptical when I told him what I was making, then as he was eating he couldn't stop saying how good it was.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Yummy. I have made this salad several times in the past couple weeks. I actually didn't add the pears since I'm not a big fan of pears. Instead of Roquefort cheese I used feta, and in place of all the sugar I toasted the nuts with a little spoonful of honey. Overall a delicious salad.

Teriyaki Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
My husband and I both enjoyed these. I used extra lean ground turkey which I was surprised to find has less fat than chicken. I'm sure the extra fat adds a lot more flavor, but we're always trying to eat healthy, and these were tasty.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This soup was hearty and delicious. I'm always looking for healthy recipes so my husband and I don't get tired of eating the same things. I'm definitely adding this one to one of our favorites. I like the addition of the lemon juice and cilantro - it really gives this soup an extra kick.

Orange Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly except I added a little bit of olive oil and used frozen orange juice concentrate. It had a really nice, light balsamic flavor that went well with toasted almonds and feta cheese. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
It was a decent soup, a little on the bland side for my tastes. It is incredibly healthy and is good for those that enjoy milder flavored soups.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This is very good if you're looking for a dressing that goes with Asian style salads. I have made this numerous times over the past couple of months, and it's always something I look forward to eating. It may only be me, but I notice it's a bit on the spicy side. I think this is due to the dry mustard. If you don't like the hint of spice, opt for less mustard or substitute. Otherwise, excellent!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Delicious chili. I made adjustments based on how strict I am with my diet, so I used olive oil in place of butter. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and it was incredibly good. I like that it's thick and substantial yet very healthy at the same time, so you're full when you're done but don't feel guilty because it's so healthy.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I enjoyed this very much. The salmon had a ton of flavor and I actually ate it plain with no bun. Looking forward to making this again.

Cold Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I love this salad. It is fresh tasting and healthy and makes a great side dish. It's a unique way of using beans if you're not in the mood for baked beans, etc. I like the tanginess of the tomato and vinegar.

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This is the best antipasto salad I have ever had. I made it for a bbq this summer, and I doubled the recipe. By the end of the night it was all gone. Incredibly tasty and rich with the cheese and salami. I used tortellini instead of plain pasta shells. Fabulous.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This had a really good flavor! To me it was similar to the pre-made Italian dressing packets you buy in the store, and this is a much cheaper alternative. The only thing I would change when I make it next time is to not add as much salt. It tasted too salty to me, and this was even without adding garlic salt (I used garlic powder). Otherwise, tasty!

Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I wouldn't have called this a lemon sauce. It was mostly made from apple juice with a hint of lemon. I thought the flavor was off, and the name of the recipe misleading. I definitely would not make the sauce again. The chicken itself was tasty though.
