Jalapeno Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
The recipe doesn't include the stuffed part, I have been wanting to experiment with stuffed chicken for a while, so I took this recipe, used chicken breasts and stuffed it with a mixture of... 1 tablespoon light sour cream, 1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, 6 wedges of light laughing cow (for 6 breasts), green onion, cilantro, chives, minced garlic, seeded diced tomatoes, the other half of the jalapeno (minced) and 1 tablespoon of the rub that is on the outside of the chicken... I think this recipe would be delicious without the stuffing too, I followed this recipe to a T almost, except I quickly browned each side of the chicken in a fry pan real quick, like others suggested, then put them in a casserole. Prepared the sauce, poured about a half cup over them and basted it throughout cooking... This was SO good! Yum Yum Yum!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I doubled this recipe for a party and got rave reviews! Only thing I did different is add bit more sugar... unfortunately I didn't have the for-sight to measure it to share with you how much but I added until it mellowed the vinegar a bit. Taste test! I also just used one onion and chopped it small (not minced), I used only one even though I doubled the recipe because I didn't want to serve an onion salad :) I am having a party next month and I am pretty sure this recipe is making an appearance again! Yum!!!

Herbed Chuck Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I used thin cut chuck steaks and only marinated them for an hour and 20 minutes. I added splenda instead of sugar and used just a smidge more than 1/2 a teaspoon. They turned out delicious! MmmmmMmmMmmm! Thanks for the recipe!

Venison Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
This was good but I have to agree, once it is cooled off and/or leftovers, it isn't too appetizing. But however this opinion from me could also be the result of unfamiliarity with venison.

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
I did a few minor changes to the recipe... First I added a little onion, minced the garlic, used button mushrooms instead of portobello and fresh spinach instead of frozen. I did not use butter to saute` the mixture, cooked them on my panini press to eliminate the oil and used reduced-fat mozzarella & cheddar! The whole family liked these!

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Yum! Yum! Yum! Followed everything exactly except I cut them into fries and they were wonderful! Next time I am going to add a tad more cayenne because we like heat but they were so good, this is my go to recipe for sweet potato fries from now on! Thanks!.... I have recently taken to sprinkling the fries with just a tiny amount of grated Cotija cheese, it gives the fries a nice tangy contrast to their flavor.

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Yummy! I think I did these injustice by using packaged taco seasoning to season the meat because I was in a pinch for time but they were very tasty anyway. I think they would be even better following the seasonings provided. Can't wait to try them the way they were intended! Thanks for the recipe Jimmy!

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Was actually completely surprised how wonderful this was! I did add a few veggies just out of personal preference (celery, carrots & garlic along with a little thyme). It was very good, my mother loved it and she is quite picky about things with barley. I used beef stew meat because that is what I had on hand and it was delicious and because it was cooked in the slow cooker it was fall apart tender. Thanks for the recipe, I will definately make this again!

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
This recipe has made it to my top 20 list! OMG! Soooo Good the whole family was licking their plates to get up all of the dressing. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and used romaine and spinach and added an array of different veggies (carrot, cucumber, mandarin oranges, mushrooms & cilantro (cilantro added a really nice touch)). I also wasn't going to fry my own noodles (don't have the time or patience ^^) so I went to buy some and for some reason I picked up French's French Fried Onions by accident but you know what? It was still tasty! Thank you ever so much for this fabulous recipe Jill, my 5 year old isn't asking for ranch anymore, he wants your dressing!

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Been making this for years! However, I personally coat the potatoes and peppers with olive oil & toss them with some McCormick Montreal Seasoning, a dash of garlic powder and salt. Put the potatoes (I cut the potatoes into bite size chunks rather than dicing them) on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes @ 375. Then put the peppers and add some onion on the sheet right after I move the potatoes around, wait another 5 minutes or so and just put the kielbasa on top and cook for another 10 minutes. Doing it in the oven keeps you from having to stand at the stove top for the whole time. Comes out delish! Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
This was yummy! However, I have to agree with other reviewers, it is a very "heavy" meal. I personally felt almost like cheese overload (perhaps next time I will look for a different filling in the tortellini). The saving grace for my family that made them keep digging in? The fresh tomatoes, I would not skip them by adding canned, they added a fresh touch to it and the pop they added was delectable. Everyone's comment was, "If we have this again... more tomatoes!" Thanks for the recipe, this is going in my box but probably for a winter time, good and easy stick to your ribs meal!

Teriyaki Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This was the closest thing I could find to Teriyaki Burgers using turkey instead of ground beef. So I used this recipe and OMG! I am so glad I did! I followed everything exactly, used maruchan (hot chili sauce, it gave it a nice underlying heat without the factor of burn) and served on a whole wheat bun with a little light mayo & lettuce. Ate this with freshly sliced pineapple. Delish to the max! Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to try them as an appetizer!

Orange Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I followed suit of what others did. I thinly sliced my pork and dredged it in flour, then fried it in hot peanut oil. I then removed it from pan and cooked up some chopped onion and garlic and removed that. Then I constructed the sauce (doubled it) and used brown sugar instead of white like others suggested. I also used chicken broth that I had in my fridge instead of water, eliminated the cornstarch and added red pepper flaked. Simmered that for a minute the added the pork and onions again. Added shredded carrots & fresh broccoli. Delish!!!

Pork Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
These were quite good... Served them with sweet chile sauce which went well together. I took the advice of another reviewer and boiled them rather than steaming them... next time I will try steaming them because my wonton wrappers just fell apart in the boiling process, perhaps it was too hard of a boil. The dumplings themselves were good enough to definately try again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
