Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
This was great! I think it tastes like an expensive restaurant's dressing. It would be great with a goat cheese, walnut, cranberries and mixed green salad. I didn't take out the blender, I just whisked it to combine. I also added a tablespoon or so of mayo to give it gloss.

Raspberry Walnut Baked Brie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was quite possibly the most delicious thing that I have ever tasted, and my family at Thanksgiving felt the same. Outrageous!!!

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!

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).

Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Very delicate and delicious flavor! I just made the sauce, didn't do the first part to the salmon. I also made one change, instead of horseradish I used dijon mustard. And I used reduced fat mustard and mayo. I spread a spoon or so of the sauce on the fish, then sprinkled a tsp or so of panko breadcrumbs and baked for 20 min at 400. Served with whole wheat couscous with dill and extra dipping sauce. Really really yummy!

Black Bean Tortilla Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is such a healthy meal! I made a few changes. I sauteed onion and peppers in 1 tsp evoo and some taco seasoning, then added the rest of the ingredients, brought that to a boil, added the beans and instead of making a casserole I stuffed whole wheat flour tortillas with the tomato/pepper/onion mixture, topped with a little lite mozz or taco cheese and baked until the cheese browned a little. Served with lite sour cream and guacamole. Yum!!!

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!

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.

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!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I thought this was really really tasty. Very moist and had a beefy flavor. I found it a bit too salty, so I'd cut down on the salt next time. I guess the hot sauce adds enough salt. I didn't find this to be spicy at all. I did add a tbsp of tomato paste to the topping, because I though it needed it. I might put even more tomato paste next time, that's a nice complementary flavor. Turkey and quinoa- great idea!!!

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
This was great. I cut the oil a bit, didn't measure everything just eyeballed it. Used 2 cans of diced tomatoes. I added frozen artichoke hearts to add a vegetable. It worked well!

The Big Easy Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This was great but I did have to add more water than the recipe called for. Also couldn't find the reduced sodium mix so it was a little salty. I didn't add shrimp but I'm sure that would be great. Be sure to cook the sausage separately- I was able to render a lot of fat out of the dish by cooking it first, draining it well on paper towels and then adding to the rice mixture.

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...

Philly Mashed Potatoes

This was really creamy and delicious, if a bit labor intensive. I used scallion cream cheese because I had it and it turned out great!

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!

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.
