Grilled Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2014
The best sweet potato fries/wedges recipe I've tried yet! Incredible flavour with the blend of spices and apple cider vinegar! Will definitely make again. The only change I made was using cayenne pepper instead of chipotle chili powder (didn't have any) and using half the amount called for.

Quinoa Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
Like others have said, this is a great basic and versatile casserole recipe. I was easily able to make substitutions for items I didn't have. I was out of quinoa, butter and mushrooms, so I omitted the butter, used frozen mixed veggies instead of mushrooms, cooked egg noodles (instead of quinoa) in the broth, and mixed half of the remaining broth, after the noodles were cooked, back into the mixture and allowed to thicken. Sprinkled grated cheddar cheese on top.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
We used all whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose and they still turned out fluffy! To sneak veggies into our young picky eater, we add 1 cup of grated carrot and apple or beets - you'd never know they were there.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
This was great! So good, the company loved it, and my 2 picky toddlers loved it. I can't handle hot or even medium hot taste, so I reduced the chilli powder by 1/3 the amount and reduced the chopped green chilies by 1/2. It was very mild, I'll use the whole amount of chopped green chilies next time. I also could not purchase canned hominy, so I substituted the same amount of frozen yellow corn in its place. Served it with a side of nachos for scooping, sprinkled with low-fat shredded cheddar cheese and non-fat plain greek style yogurt. Loved it! Will make again.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
This really is a great recipe - a simple one dish meal with delicious results! The only changes I made were: I used butter instead of margarine and halved the amount to reduce fat content. Didn't have onion powder so I used poultry seasoning instead. Added 1/4 sweet onion to the celery in the cavity. Chopped up an additional stalk of celery, 1/4 sweet onion, potatoes, carrots, broccoli and added 1/4 cup water to the roasting pan for a full one-dish meal. I will make this again and recommend it!

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
So good! Our toddlers even loved it. I will make this again, very flavourful. I used mostly fresh instead of the dried ingredients. My oven obviously cooks faster, so next time I will reduce the oven temperature and/or cooking time, as they were overdone.

Yogurt and Cereal coated baked chicken breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
The coating is so tasty and crispy, I don't miss the skin at all! Also, the chicken is very moist, cooked at just the right temperature for just the right amount of time. An awesome healthy alternative to breaded or skin-left-on chicken.

Soy Sauce Substitute

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
It's great to have an easy to make substitute on hand & I'm sure this is much healthier than soya sauce as it would have a lot less sodium. I definitely prefer the flavour of the real thing, but this will do the trick. Thank you for sharing!

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
The flavour and consistency was incredible! Excellent recipe. I didn't have canned crushed tomatoes, so I quickly searched online and made a substitute with fresh tomatoes. I will absolutely make this again & recommend to others. Thank you for sharing!

Keema (Indian-Style Ground Meat)

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
I really like this dish! I did less than half of my garam masala substitute and it was still spicy, so do add a little at a time while tasting as you go to ensure you don't over do it! A great inspiration recipe that you can add to if you desire, which is what I did. I took the author's advice and added veggies: frozen mix of peas, carrots, corn & green beans, sweet potatoes, celery & cauliflower serving it with buckwheat instead of rice. I substituted and added other ingredients according to what I didn't have, etc: ground beef instead of lamb, 1/2 packet of onion soup mix instead of onion, 1.5 tsp Chana Dal masala instead of 2 Tbsp garam masala & added 1.5 Tbsp yellow curry (I cannot handle hot spice, hence the decrease), 1/4 tsp sea salt (reduced salt due to type & using onion soup mix), increased tomato paste to 5.5 fl oz can adding 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup whole milk (due to increased volume of dish b/c of added veggies, & to help reduce spiciness).

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
This was great! I followed the advise of a reviewer who mentioned layering the dish with a potato layer in the middle. I did two things differently: 1 large sweet potato in place of the 2 potatoes (b/c it's what we had on hand), and sprinkled the top with crumbled feta cheese. My husband loved it and he had spent some time in Turkey - loves eastern european cuisine! The idea of this dish reminds me of a Turkish layered vegetable bake that I have made for him.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Turned out a bit dry for me and a tad too spicy. Will add some water & lemon, and reduce the red pepper flakes by half next time. Great base recipe to tweak with according to your liking!

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
These are SO good, soft & moist. Cannot tell the difference between these & cookies made with all-purpose refined wheat flour. I am not sensitive to gluten or eggs, I just like trying other grains & avoiding wheat. I used kamut flour (apparently has gluten) and 1 egg in place of the egg-substitute. We love the results. Thank you for a great wheat alternative cookie recipe!

Peachy Keen Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This is a great base recipe for a smoothie when you don't have yogurt! I didn't have peaches, but I had frozen tropical fruit that I used instead, so I omitted the ice cubes. I also didn't have any rolled oats, so I omitted that, too. And I used skim milk instead of the vanilla soy milk. It was great!
