15-Minute Herbed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
My husband's favorite sauce. I added caramelized dice onions and used cream of mushroom soup. I think any condensed soup would work. This would make a great "gravy" on mashed potatoes.

Vegan Agave Cornbread Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I made these twice, 1st time as written and the 2nd I added more cornmeal, less flour and frozen corn. Really tasty & moist both ways.

Plantain Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
Thanks for sharing such a creative recipe. I love plantains and corn muffins, genius idea. I made these without eggs and use 1/3 cup drained crushed pineapple & 2 cups mashed (almost black ripe) plantains. If you use soy milk and earth balance this would be a vegan muffin.

No Time to Cook Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
I've made this about 4 times. Outcome is always tasty. I season chicken and add a bag of baby carrots to cook with whatever flavor condensed soups I had on hand (cream of celery and mushroom was a good combo). Seriously good with rice pilaf or egg noodles. I do use low fat sour cream and low sodium soups.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
This took me longer to eat than make. Simply yummy. I made the following changes based on personal taste: Only used 1 seasoning packet (afraid it would be too salty). Reduced sugar to 1/4 cup. Substitute whole almonds for peanuts & olive oil for veggie oil. Might used rice vinegar & even less sugar next time.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This was such a hit at our Easter dinner. Made the recipe as stated minus cheese (needed a vegan app.). I placed sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and basil in a mini food processor to save a few steps. Really good and would make again & again. We had a few spoonfuls left which we added to egg whites for breakfast. This would be amazing over pasta.

Green Beans with Hazelnuts and Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Excellent! I used roasted cashews (like the texture better) instead. I cooked green beans for about 3 minutes. Recipe taste good warm or cold.

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
My favorite cookie for XMAS 2011. I used cashews instead of macadamia and a bit less white sugar. Perfectly tasty and everyone raved about them.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Great base recipe. I made a few basic changes like used egg whites and omitted the oil but upped the applesauce to 1/2 cup. I preferred using whole flax seed instead of ground. I will make this again.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I would make this again. Easy, quick & tasty. I made this 90% as written except I used much less butter & more cheese (adore cheese). The shrimp are upstaged by the sauce, even seasoned. The sauce is the star & would be awesome with chicken ,grilled portabello mushrooms or just over pasta.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Egg-mazing! I never tasted or made deviled egg before but wanted to add something traditional to our Easter dinner. I couldn't have made a better selection. I used turkey bacon (some guests didn't eat pork). This has made us deviled egg fans! Most complained that I didn't make enough.

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
I enjoy making this on a busy weeknight especially on meatless Mondays. I add more feta (tomato basil flavor) and use frozen steamed spinach as a short cut.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
Wow! How great was this banana bread. My husband & I couldn't stop munching on it. I didn't use the egg, the batter was so creamy I didn't think it needed it. The cinnamon sugar was finger licking good.

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Awesome, fresh & amazing. It's worth pitting all those cherries (I now purchased a cherry pitter). I hate canned cherry pie so this was a real treat. I followed the recipe completely with no subs. Thanks for the recipe.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
My 10 year old godson & I made this recipe exactly as written. It was very good & fun to assemble. He was able to cram all the cookies in. We did sprinkle lemon juice on the bananas so they wouldn't turn brown (several reviewers suggested). Thanks for sharing.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
So easy & really good. As many reviewers suggested I used raw chicken (1.5 lb of skinless boneless thights) to the mix in the beginning & shredded after 4 hrs on high. I also substituted a 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with chiles for the whole peeled. I didn't add the can of chiles. It's a good base recipe that can be customized. I will make this again many times! Added guacamole & sour cream as a garnish.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I really did enjoy baking this pumpkin bread. I made 2 batches. One as listed except I added 1/2 cup apple butter with the remaining 1/2 cup oil & only used 2 cups of the sugar (brown & white). Second batch was a vegan version (Mom's a vegan). I used 1 ripe mashed banana and 1/2 cup of apple butter in place of the 4 eggs. Pumpkin flavor was very present and texture was moist. I will make this again & again. Semi-sweet chocolate chips would be a great addition.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
This is dangerously easy and too good not to make often. I only used I package of low fat cream cheese, cut down on the sugar and brushed on melted butter (¼ cup), still delicious with the changes. I used a no frills brand of crescent rolls and had to pitch ends together to make sure the dough stayed in one piece.

Anaheim Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
We really enjoyed this recipe. I used tilapia, jalapeno and onion (instead of leek & chili). I used canned diced tomatoes undrained (sub for broth, I ran out). I made a sour cream, chopped chipotle mixture to add on the taco once served. Even better topped with sliced avocado. I really love fried fish tacos but this is just as good but in a healthy way. Can't wait to make again.
