Healthier Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
Perfect!! So moist and full of flavor! I did not have tomato sauce so just left it out, but otherwise followed the recipe. This was a huge hit in our house and I will be making again!

Grilled Tarragon Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
I used chicken tenders and marinated them over night. I used fresh tarragon and the chicken was very moist and full of flavor, however, I wasn't a big fan of the flavor. I did not enjoy mustard and tarragon together, even though I love both! My husband did love these, so I'm guessing it's more personal preference than flaw in the recipe. I don't think I would make them again, but I do think this recipe is worth a try!

Barbequed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
I somehow managed to forget about the butter, but this still turned out amazing! I could see how the butter would add a little something extra, but the soy sauce added a delicious crisp to the grilled side of the cabbage. Will be making again!

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
This was very good. I followed the directions other than making it into a bread pan meatloaf. I also minced up my veggies rather than using a food processor- I liked the crunch it provided. Overall, it was a little dry and flaky. The flavor was great but it may need another egg or some type of fluid to help hold it together a little more. Will make again.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
I made a few changes to work with what I had- I used coconut oil instead of butter (a little less than 1/4 cup), I had bone in, skin on thighs that I removed the skin and used with bone in. I let it sit in the fridge overnight and put in the crockpot at 130pm. I set it at high for 1 hour and then low for about 3.5 hours and it was perfect! Wonderful flavor and the meat fell off the bones. I served over brown basmati rice with some of the juices from the crockpot. definitely worth a try! I wouldn't have thought to put these flavors together, thanks for a great recipe!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
This was my first experience cooking a prime rib roast. I have an internal thermometer in my oven and learned in never gets above 430 degrees, so I preheated my oven and put in in for 30 mins rather than 20 before decreasing the temperature. I also left a digital thermometer in the roast so I would be sure not to over cook it. This was absolutely delicious, a huge hit and so easy to do!! I would recommend this recipe, especially to newbies and less experienced cooks like myself. This is how I will always cook my roast- it was so tender, moist and perfectly med-rare.

Hearty Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
This was delicious! I followed others and used olive oil and chicken broth. I decided at the last minute I wanted to make this soup even "heartier" and added mushrooms, zucchini and ham that needed to be used up. I believe the base recipe would be awesome on it's own, so much so I've already put this on my menu plan for next week!! I plan to make a very large batch and freeze into portions for later. Oh, I didn't have swiss cheese so I used a little parmesan instead- could be good without that too. :)

Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
This is always a huge hit!! This is a go to for potlucks! I have had the not healthy version and I think this healthier one is just as tasty!! One change I have made for personal preference is instead of ranch dressing, I use 1 cp low fat greek yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk and a packet of dry ranch mix. I also microwave or bake it, I've never done this in the slow cooker.

Lighter Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
This will be added to my rotation of ways to cook salmon! I used a little less than 1/4 cup brown sugar and about 4tsp olive oil and 2 large cloves of garlic. This was so delicious but I think I could have even less brown sugar! I was surprised the flavors didn't overpower the salmon! Definitely worth trying!!

Quick Edamame Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
This was tasty! I used fresh basil and parsley instead of dried. Next time I think I will try adding fresh garlic and maybe a few more herbs. The flavor is lacking a bit but at the same time it is a very addictive taste and you just want to keep eating it. Good, if not better the next day.

Healthier Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
I seared my chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder first. With searing, the cooking time was much less- I don't know how long as I left in an cooking thermometer so I don't set a timer. Didn't use cornstarch, I thought the gravy was a good consistency for this meal. Tasty and quick meal! *Edit* I've now cooked this a few times, and I actually think I like it better on the stove, I sauté the onions and mushrooms put them off to the side, then brown the seasoned pork chops, once they are almost done I add cream of mushroom and the sautéed veggies, turns out great! I've also tried it with Campbell's golden mushroom and it adds a great taste too!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
I love balsamic vinegar and was really excited about this recipe! I even went out and bought "top shelf" balsamic vinegar. Unfortunately we did not care for this recipe, it somehow tasted too sweet...not sure what I did wrong but I thought I followed the recipe exactly.

Garlic Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Delicious!! Such a simple and easy recipe! The pork was so moist and tender! Only change I made was added carrots and an extra can of broth, my crockpot is deep and narrow so I needed more to cover the pork. Definitely worth trying!

Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Yummy!! SO tender and moist! This wasn't the recipe I had planned to use when I bought a tenderloin roast so didn't follow exactly- I had no apples or brown sugar and only about half a jar of sauerkraut. I sauteed a large yellow onion and combined that with the kraut. Also, to save on time I browned the pork with the spices, a 2 lb roast took just over an hour in the oven and was delicious! Will make this again for sure!

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This was very tastey! I used half ricotta and half cottage cheese and added some turkey bacon. I made a double batch to freeze one for later. Great recipe, thank you!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
Very good! I added both cans of black beans and if you are wanting this as a meal, I would recommend doing the same. I sauteed the quinoa for a bit before adding the broth. I also added a can of diced tomatoes and fresh mushrooms to add more bulk as I wanted this to be a full meal in itself. Great combo and would be easy to tweak for individual taste.
