Extra-Easy Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Easy and delicious. I added some basil, garlic, s+p and an egg to the ricotta mixture. Also added chopped meatballs. Topped with parm cheese. Skipped the water, didn't need it. Used no-boil noodles.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I thought this was great! Very spicy! I tripled the recipe as recommended by others, for 2 lbs of uncooked shrimp and 4 cups veggies. For the cornstarch mixture I added some chili garlic sauce, fresh grated ginger, and sesame oil to deepen the flavor. I didn't have any green onions so I added a regular sweet onion to the oil to saute, added 12 cloves minced garlic to the oil (only 1 tbsp oil, not 3), then added the veggies. It was too dry so I added a cup of chicken stock and the shrimp too. Once it steamed a little bit I added the sauce and let it cook more. Served over rice and it was really yummy! Tomorrow I'll steam another couple of cups of broccoli because there's so much sauce left over (less shrimps).

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I had leftover rotisserie chicken, green beans, and a box of stuffing we didn't use at Thanksgiving so these came together really nicely in this dish. First I sauteed some onions, made the stuffing and added the onions and some dried cranberries. I added half a can of milk to the soup mix (I used cream of mushroom soup, low sodium). I added cheese on top of the soup/chicken/green beans layer and then again on top of the stuffing. I'm not sure it added much flavor but helped the texture and my husband liked it. In the end it was a comforting, delicious dish like my mother never made!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I think this was really good, and I made just a few changes. I only used one can of biscuit dough, reduced fat. 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, low sodium. I used 2 onions because I really like them, one bag frozen mixed veggies, and like 2 cans of chicken broth. I added broth, then chopped onions, then 3 chicken breasts seasoned with S&P, poultry seasoning and paprika, then the veggies and soup and more broth. I cooked it on high for like 4 hours, then added the torn dough, smushed it down and cooked a couple of hours more. Really good, maybe next time I'd add a splash of hot sauce for deeper flavor. I omitted the butter, didn't see why it was necessary. Also lighter my way.

Broccoli-Stuffed Sole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Delish!!! My husband, who has a broccoli aversion, ate it and loved it! I used one lb of sole, brown rice, used less salt (about half) and doubled the sauce part. I also added a bit of shredded cheese on top of the fish. And I used really good sharp cheddar (not reduced fat). I wasn't sure the cheddar would go with the fish and broccoli but it was soo good! Tomorrow I'll try the leftovers on my twin toddlers, wish me luck!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I thought this was great, but I changed a few things to make it easier (which I often do). I used up boiled chicken (I shredded it) from making chicken stock. I didn't puree the sour cream/ cilantro/ salsa mixture, I just stirred it up. Also I just used regular salsa (medium) and added some jalepenos and fresh tomatoes. I basically mixed cilantro, salsa, and sour cream, then mixed shredded chicken, onion, tomato, and jalepenos in a separate bowl. I bought healthier tortillas and didn't do anything to them before filling them with the chicken mixture, rolling them, placing them seam side down in a casserole dish over a little of the sour cream mixture, then topped them with the rest of the sour cream mixture and 2 % Mexican cheese mix. It came out spicy and good! I served with Guacamole and Spicy refried beans. Yum!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
These were great- based on reviews I used half the sugar and added chocolate chips. Mashed 4 bananas since i had them. Also added 1 tsp vanilla. And we added a few tbsp flax oil along with the veg oil. Very moist and delicious!!!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I made these into hamantashen (triangle shaped) for Purim and they were really outrageous! I did add 1/4 tsp salt and 2 tsp vanilla as one other reviewer suggested. I think this will be my regular recipe. The only problem is I inhaled 4 of them in about 10 seconds...

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2003
Very tasty! I modified the recipe- reducing the oil to 1/4 cup (next time I will use a lighter tasting oil like olive rather than vegetable), used only 1/4 c. soy sauce b/c I only have reg. (not reduced sodium), omitted the cilantro because I don't like the taste (although I can see what it would add) and added some lightly steamed broccoli and chopped orange peppers. I also added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes for zip. And I didn't shred the chicken, I sliced it. It was great after a little while in the fridge (cold) but I bet it will be even better tomorrow! It makes a lot of pasta. And in my experience, order of operations isn't that important, just mix it all up and chill well! I revise what I had said earlier, this was better heated!

Curried Chicken and Rice Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
This was excellent! I made a few adjustments. I used apricot preserves instead of chutney (what I had on hand), omitted the pepper since I didn't have any, and substituted cucumber for celery (don't like celery). I also used regular salt, added more curry powder for flavor and some cayenne pepper for spice. I also added chopped cashews because the flavors blend well (and I didn't have any pine nuts). Definitely marinate overnight- it makes a difference and marries the flavors well. Thanks!

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2003
This turned out excellent! I made a few adjustments- less breadcrumbs (use 1/2 cup at most), 1/2 tsp pepper (not a whole tsp), add 1 tsp onion powder, no need to add salt to the sauce, and no need to grease the pan. Plus I chopped the onion instead of grating it and it worked just fine. I omitted the pineapple- no need to add sweetness. This is a delicious dinner!

Apple Crunch Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
Sooooo good. Makes a huge pie but it shrinks as it cooks. Hands down the best apple pie I have ever had.

Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
I decreased the amount of butter and cream cheese, increased the amount of milk and added green onions and this was the most creamy, wonderful dish I have ever served. Melts in your mouth. Be sure to use Yukon Gold potatoes- they really make a difference.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
I made this as a cake and baked it for 30 or so minutes at 325, then when cool I added cinnamon walnut cream cheese frosting to make a decadent top to a fat free cake. It was awesome! I recommend this highly- it tasted just like carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!

BUSH'S® Nacho Average Nachos

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I thought this was really good but I did make a few changes. I didn't use broth, just a little water until it was the right texture for me. I also didn't save any onions for the top, just cooked all of them. I didn't add chicken and added 1/2 cup frozen corn and 1 cup salsa (to the mixture after the black beans). I put crushed baked tortilla chips on the bottom of a casserole dish, then added the bean mixture and then a little cheese, which I broiled. I got to eat a lot for not so many calories! I recommend this recipe.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This was great. I had made Sweet Potato Crisp from this site last year for turkey day and it was too sweet. I doubled the recipe and added some cinnamon and nutmeg. Everyone agreed it was the best ever.

Spicy Smoked Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This was fantastic! We had a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving, so we had tons of leftovers and were looking for what to do with them. I doubled the recipe, added more garlic, fresh tomatoes, and a red pepper for color, also a bag of frozen mixed veggies and we added the turkey carcass and cooked it with the lid on. Cooked it for an hour or so, then it was even better the next day. Didn't need any salt or pepper. The tomato juice and chicken stock are salty. Wonderful soup, more like a stew!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Truly the best lasagna I've ever eaten let alone made. Thank you, John!!! I doubled the onion and next time I'll double the garlic. I used 1 tsp salt and next time I think I'll add a bit more (still less than 1 tbsp). I also didn't cook the noodles, just soaked them in hot water. To help with the fat (and liquid) content, I drained all the liquid after browning the sausage and beef. Amazing flavor! And it was even better the next day!

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This was very good once I added a lot more seasoning (chili powder, a lot more garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper, cayenne). I also used sweet onion in addition to the green onion (sauteed in evoo instead of butter) and used cottage cheese instead of ricotta b/c it's healthier. I only used 1 cup of jack cheese, on the top, and added salsa to the enchilada sauce for more veggies. I filled 4 whole wheat tortillas (big ones). It was spicy and good!
