Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Pretty good stuff. We changed it up quite a bit to bring the calories down a lot. Used sugar-free pudding mix, fat free sour cream, skim milk. Nice change of pace.

Grandpa Bob's Spicy Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
Very average. Perhaps I needed to marinate it longer than I did (90 minutes), but it just didn't add much to the meat.

Red, White and Blue Slaw Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
There were only two of us, and I wanted to trim the calorie content, so I made some modifications. Used 6 slices of "veggie" bacon, 3 cups of cole slaw mix, 1/4 cup of blue cheese, 1 cup of diced canned tomatoes and 1/2 cup of dressing (1/4 cup of fat free sour cream, 1/4 cup of light mayo). We enjoyed it. The combination of the bacon flavor and blue cheese was great.

Irish Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
We enjoyed these, though I wish I could've come up with a more creative dipping sauce than simple dijon mustard. Used the same shortcuts that others mentioned-- corned beef from deli, 2c of cole slaw mix, 1c of precooked/bagged shredded potatoes. Also, I did not fry them. Once I wrapped them up, I misted them with a bit of non-stick cooking spray and placed on a cookie sheet.....then baked for 18 minutes @ 425 degrees. A bit healthier than the deep-frying method, but tastes at least as good IMHO.

Easy One Skillet Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
Turned out a lot better than I was thinking it would. Only changes I made were to use canola oil and fat-free sour cream. Frankly, the smell wasn't very appetizing before I mixed the sour cream in. But once the cream went in, it tasted pretty good. A nice, healthy dinner.

Apple Pecan Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
I would have rated it higher, but my expectations were pretty high and it didn't quite live up to those. It's a nice dish with a unique taste, but it's not so much better than boxed stuffing that I would go to the trouble of making it very often.

BOCA® Sausage Apple Streudel

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
Really enjoyed it. Prepared it just as directed and it came out great. Tasty and healthy twist on breakfast.

BOCA® Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I made this with one pouch of the burger, some shredded chicken and some added tomato sauce. It would've been too dry with just the 3/4 cup of salsa. Turned out to be a nice filling for soft tacos (used homemade masa-made soft taco shells).

BOCA® Breakfast Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
This was a great alternative to the typically artery-clogging biscuits/gravy. My wife, who is a huge fan of the traditional dish, really liked this a lot.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
Awesome, just awesome. I threw in an extra gold potato. We had this with the "Smothered Filet Mignon" recipe from this site and it made for a wonderful meal.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
Wonderful meal. The vinegar/oil/mustard mix gave it a nice taste, but the carmelized onions and blue cheese were the key for me. We had this with the "Roasted Vegetables" recipe from this site and it was just an outstanding combination.

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
We enjoyed this quite a bit. I used a 24 oz package of ravioli, which I boiled and drained, then cooked over an olive-oiled skillet with 1 T of onion powder until the ravioli browned up a bit. Seperately, I cooked the tomatoes, artichokes, onions and salt/pepper. Then I mixed the pasta into the vegetable mixture, minus the extra 1 t of olive oil. We usually eat the ravioli by itself and it's great, but this was a very nice change of pace.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
I was looking for a way to jazz up some canned carrots and gave this a try. Used two 14 oz cans, light butter and the brown sugar. Using two cans of the carrots might have been a stretch. Otherwise, it was a decent change of pace.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
My wife, who is unfortunately a big fan of boxed cornbread, called this the best cornbread ever. I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and used applesauce instead of vegetable oil. Nice recipe.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
It wasn't quite as good as I was hoping it'd be, based on prior reviews, but it was a nice change of pace from other chicken dishes. Per others suggestions, I used balsamic vinegar, 2 T of brown sugar, about a 1/2 cup extra water and served it over white rice.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Pretty easy to make and pretty tasty. I had to leave it in the oven a lot longer than the original recipe prescribed though.

Corn Tortillas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
Pretty tasty tortillas. I had to add a bit of water after the original mixing, but I overdid it, so I added a touch of flour, etc. Didn't use a tortilla press, as I don't own one, but I did put the dough ball between two pieces of freezer bag plastic, then pressed it with the bottom of a skillet. Smaller and a bit thicker than the tortillas I'm used to, but storebought tortillas can't come close to the taste of this homemade version. I think they can be a lot better with practice, too.

Gary's Turkey Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
Nothing out of this world, but a good meal. Would've liked for it to have been a bit spicier. But we all enjoyed it.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
This worked out really well. My wife, who is a huge fan of the Chili's soup, just loved this. I used 2% reduced fat chedder cheese, which helped trim a few calories, and the taste didn't suffer.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
The best corn bread I've ever made. Onion gave it a nice kick. I used light margerine and egg substitute and it turned out wonderfully.
