Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I had an envelope of ranch dressing mix that I ended up not using for another recipe and so I went looking for a recipe I could use it in... This is what I got. I used reduced-fat cream cheese, I also used 1% milk instead of heavy cream. They were pretty good. Not as ranch flavored as I expected but nicely seasoned and this recipe made mass amounts.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
My son saw these and he exclaimed... "Enchiritos!" and by all means, he was right! He gobbled down 2 huge ones and "mmm"ed through every bite. lol .... I used ground turkey instead of beef. I also added some chili powder and cilantro along with the other seasonings. I served it on a bed of romaine lettuce and built it up from there... topped with tomatoes, olives, jalapenos & reduced-fat cheese. I served it with some of my homemade mexi-corn. Truly, as the recipe title states... Fabulous! :)

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
Didn't change a thing and it was really good. Had an elegant feel to it. The feta gave it a nice zing to the sweet pop of the tomato... Yummy!

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
The soup was really good. It was loaded with lots of veggies and filling... Only thing I did different was add one bunch of chopped up kale to the pot. I had some and thought it would be a nice addition, which it was.

Spice It Up Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I followed the recipe except I used bulk sausage instead of links. I'd even be willing to skip the ground beef altogether, the sausage seemed to be enough. If you like it hot, don't remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapeno but if you don't make sure you clean them out well. Our family loves heat! Two out of the 4 of us have the sniffles and this was great to help clear those sinuses. Yummy!

Breakfast In A Glass

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
this was pretty good. I liked the basic, easy to find ingredients it called for. To give it a little chill I blended about 6 ice cubes with it and a little honey to sweeten it up just a tad.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
I used chicken sausage, 1 (14.5 oz.) can of diced tomatoes and about 1/2 a tablespoon dried basil. I can not wait to try this with fresh everything. It was really good with my little changes... I am sure it will be fantastic with all fresh ingredients.

BBQ Chicken Crescents

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Super Easy & Super Tasty!!! Who can ask for more than that? I added a few dashes of hot sauce to the bbq sauce/chicken and used a blend of cheddar & pepper jack for the inside that I had left over from another use, to give it some kick. Did everything as stated otherwise and they were the YUM!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I used brown rice leftover from last night. I used frozen peas and carrots instead of pea pods and carrots and added some minced garlic while I cooked the chicken & onion. I personally love cilantro & green onion in my fried rice so I sprinkled some on top... Yummy-O!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
These are quite reminiscent of blonde brownies just with apples in them instead of chocolate. Same texture and similar flavor. Very sweet, I think next time I will cut the sugar down just a little but I will be making these again. I served them topped with sugar-free caramel ice cream topping and a dollop of light whipped cream. They were delicious!

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
I used seashell pasta because I had a half a box leftover from another meal. I cooked it separately from the soup and let people add as much or as little as they wanted to avoid the pasta soaking up all the broth. I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed. I also used an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce instead of the tomato paste. I used fresh white beans from a friends garden, added a few green beans and about a handful of baby spinach I had in my fridge that needed using. As for seasonings, I added a pinch of dried oregano, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley and about 1 tablespoon fresh basil. Really tasty meal, great accompaniment for the chilly weather outside.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

My little boy and I decided to spend the morning baking and this is what he chose. These were very good, the glaze gave these nice cake-like cookies a bit of zing. Yummy! :)

Pasta With Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
For the pasta, I did not have bean sprouts but I did add green onion, a medium heat red pepper from the garden, baby zucchini, garlic and shredded carrots. I also added about 1/2 a teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sauted veggies to give it some heat. Used leftover whole grain spaghetti noodles from the night before and they worked out great for this recipe. Oh and I skipped the chicken, made it with all veggies. Voila... Peanutty Pasta Goodness!!! :)

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
I doubled the sauce and because I wanted to try and lighten this up a little, I used one cup fat free plain yogurt and 1 cup fat free half & half instead of heavy cream. Turned out well. Served it over brown basmati rice and with roasted cauliflower.

Layered Vegetable Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
My son is so not a veggie lover, especially zucchini and corn but he not only ate one helping, he ate two!!! I added a green bell pepper, garlic & a can of black beans (drained & rinsed) to the vegetable mixture. I had leftover corn on the cob so I just chopped the kernels off and used that instead of frozen. Like other reviewers mentioned as a good addition, I added a few dashes of cumin and cayenne to the veggie mix. I assembled this casserole by starting with sauce, then tortillas, then more sauce, half of the veggie mixture, reduced fat Mexican cheese blend, tortillas, sauce, veggies, cheese, tortillas, sauce, cheese and topped it all off with some minced chives from the garden and popped it into the oven. Don't be shy with the enchilada sauce (I just used the brand I had) in your layers or this will be dry but too much will make it a mushy mess. I didn't measure how much I used but I would say I used about 1/2 a cup for each layer. Served it with a dollop of sour cream, chopped cilantro and some pickled jalapeno peppers. If this got my kid to eat veggies, it is a MUST for our regular rotation. ! love recipes that push those vegetables!!! :)

Chipotle Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
If you like the flavor of chipotle, this is for you! Even though it is tempting to add extra peppers for more heat, I don't recommend it, this was perfect... followed the directions exactly! Because there are young ones in our house and chipotle can be intense sometimes, I served it with an additional dollop of light sour cream on top and sprinkled with chives because I didn't have cilantro.
