BLT Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This salad is amazing!! I made it for the first time about 3 weeks ago and I have made it 5x since then. Everytime I make it, I get recipe requests. I use the grape tomatoes sliced in half or quartered. But other than that stick to the recipe word for word!

Sean's Mommy's Roasted Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Thank you Sean's Mommy!! I only used turnips, sweet potatoes, celery, baby carrots and onions. My son and I never had turnips before and I wanted my first experiment with them to be a good one! This recipe did the trick! I added a small dash of balsamic in the "coat". We both had doubles and it's always a success when he doesn't choose to drown his food in either ketchup or ranch.

Creamy Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Excellent recipe! My son who hates spaghetti, lasagna and just about all pasta had 3 servings!! I added garlic powder and fresh basil and parsley. Other than that, followed everything as written. Thank you, this will definitely be a new staple!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Made these last night after searching for a healthy recipe for sweet potatoes. I am training for a half marathon and this type of carb is excellent. I didn't use the olive oil, instead sprayed them with Pam used Mrs. Dash, salt and pepper for the spice. Threw them in the roasting pan with "Juicy Roasted Chicken" also from this sight. It was really tasty!! Will definitely make again.

Olive Oil Roasted Eggplant with Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This was great, I used Pam spray instead of the olive oil and Mrs. Dash instead of salt and pepper. Even my picky 10 yr old ate it and liked it.

Slow Cooker Pozole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This was a homerun recipe! Substituted a can of red enchilada sauce for the dried chile/broth combo. Added a small can of salsa verde instead of the chopped chiles. I used all drumsticks (about 5 or 6) and I put them in frozen. Cooked it on 6 hours high and the meat fell right off the bone.

Parmesan Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This was pretty tasty, I took others advice and parboiled the chicken first, then baked at recommended temp for about 20 minutes. Also added oregano and about 1/4 cup of italian style bread crumbs. Served with butter herb mashed potatoes and garlic toast. Will definitely make again!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Excellent recipe!! I used the costco skinless, boneless breasts, and used worchestire instead of steak sauce, olive oil mayo instead of regular. This cooked so quick and moist on my George Foreman Grill. Paired it with fresh, grilled zuchinni spears. Super easy and super tasty.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I used the thick, boneless pork chops from Costco and a really yummy hawaiian bbq sauce. I thought the other reviews saying the meat was tender but dry sounded funny, because doesn't that sound contradicting? But strangely, mine came out just like that! The meat was tender, easily shredded with a fork but dry. Hmmmm... My hungry marine loved it, I made pull porked sandwiches and he went back for seconds and thirds. I didn't care for it too much.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This was the dessert for last night's Sunday Family Dinner!! We "healthy-fied" it because, that's what we do sometimes! Used 4 cups of chopped up, fresh nectarines (skin on), over ripe fresh strawberries and frozen blue berries. Substitutes (all measurements remained the same): whole wheat flour instead of a/p flour evaporated milk instead of reg milk (none in the fridge) splenda instead of white sugar This came out sooo yum!! The crust was more of an actual crust (kinda flat, not cake-y at all) We loved it!!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This was super simple and soooo tasty!! Cooked it tonight for the first time. Omitted the flour per the popular/helpful reviews, chopped up mushrooms with my SLAPCHOP! lol (I always wanted to use that in a sentence) and served it up with some broccoli and corn on the cob and a side salad. Recipes like this make eating healthy fun and easy!

Pineapple Upside-down Cake Martinis

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This drink is the bomb.com!! LOL I took another reviewer's suggestion and added a splash of cranberry juice to cut the too sweet flavor. I make sure to always keep the ingredients for this drink on hand!

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I really wanted to like this recipe and I can understand why the ratings are high. My 9 yr old thought it was weird with the noodles, and I really was banking on him liking that, since he loves those nasty top ramen. The salad dressing was good, but nothing spectacular. My bf ended up eating it and liking it, but probably wouldn't make again.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I made this as a dessert for a family dinner. I used the chunky peanut butter and substituted half a cup of wheat flour for a/p regular flour. The cookies were moist and very flavorful. Thank you for the recipe.

Chicken Oreganato

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Solid recipe. Simple and very tasty. Did follow others suggestions by drizzling the drippings over the chicken. I love thighs and this is my "go-to" recipe.

Greasy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was a no brainer for my low carb diet!! I followed the recipe pretty much word for word. The thighs had skin and bones. I only use low sodium soy sauce. At the last 10 minutes I threw in some fresh broccoli florets. Easy, quick and yummy! Thank you for the recipe!

Chicken-and-Pasta Bake with Basil

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This was a pretty simple recipe and very tasty too. I took the advice of previous raters, sautee'd the frozen chicken tenders, and threw the broccoli in the last few minutes with the pasta. Also, I doubled the sauce and used a mix of parmesan and mozzerella, what I had on hand. This was a really good Sunday dinner, next time I will add some salt & pepper (forgot to) and maybe some red chili flakes.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Very easy to make despite the fact the batter was soo dense it burned the motor out of my hand mixer!!! I made a lemon glaze instead of the blueberry on and that plus the cake itself was way too sweet!! Probably wouldn't make this again.

Italian Sausage and Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This was soo easy for me tonight. My dad had grilled the sausages on the weekend and sent home the left overs. I used a box of stove top and a whole can of beef broth, threw in some carrots and diced red bell pepper. I only had mozzerella cheese so I threw that in as well. Looking forward to having the left overs for lunch tomorrow!
