Elegant Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I used half brown and half white mushrooms wiht the nutmeg - excellent flavor. Served with herbed flatbread (basil) and was a tasty lunch. Next time I will use basil in the soup.

Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
We didn't care for this recipe with the red wine, however with white, it is a 10 star recipe. My family also prefers a stronger mustard sauce so I use 2 tablespoons of mustard powder. You can't go wrong with this recipe!

Fresh Pea Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Wonderful flavor for something so simple! Like other reviewers I used frozen peas, low sodium chicken broth and topped with a bit of fat free sour cream. Cannot wait to make again and serve with a grilled cheese sandwich!

Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Definitely different and my family was pleasantly surprised! My squash was large and I should have make more sauce. I also sauteed a mixture of mushrooms with the onion in only 1 T of butter and used fat free sour cream. Served with a nice salad to round out the meal. Will add to monthly rotation.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Exellent! I marinated for about 1 hr before grilling - I followed the recipe with the exception of grilling (instead of pan frying). Each bite was bursting with flavor. Served with vegetable couscous with the reduced marinate drizzled over the top. Highly recommended!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
These are exceptional. Light and fluffy. I followed another reviewer's advice and made clover leaf rolls. My family can't wait for me to make these again! Just finished taking these out of the oven and I think they are even mroe fluffy and light with using FF milk, egg beaters, and light butter this time. Made clover rolls again along with a pan version and both rose equally well. What a great recipe!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
We loved this wheat version. I ended up needing to add more flour when I rolled the crusts out in addition to adding a couple of extra tablespoons to the bread machine. I added corn meal to my pizza pans sprayed with cooking spray. The crust was light and crunchy.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I used a 6.5 pound bone-in breast, sprayed the crock with non-stick spray, rubbed the onion soup on and under the skin and added a couple of pats of butter on the breast. Cooked per the instructions and thankfully checked at 7 hours as another reviewer suggested. My breast was already overdone. Although the meat fell off the bones, I did not care for the flavor of the meat (and we like onions/dry mix I used) nor the texture. My partner and our teenage son liked it though. If you're looking for a traditional turkey taste/texture, this recipe isn't for you. For me, it was a waste of a turkey breast.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Just made this and I'm in the minority - I think it needs more balsamic and another clove of garlic. Next time I'll add another 1/4 cup balsamic and keep the oil the same.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Very tasty, although my loaves don't look like the picture. I should have cut deeper like other reviewers mentioned. For my family, the salt was just right. I threw a handful of ice cubes in the oven after about 15 minutes of baking - the crust is light and chewy.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I had to scale for use with instant brown rice (all we had) and used the ratio of chicken broth to salsa in the recipe. Like other reviewers I added a can of drained/rinsed low sodium black beans and used spicy salsa. Rice was good but not the best. Look forward to seeing how rice is on Monday when we eat the leftovers.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Very tasty if a tad sweet. Following others recommendations, I made these into 7 large rolls. They didn't double in size after an hour of raising, but did finish rising while baking. Excellent consistency - light and fluffy. I was asked which bakery I bought them from and my partner was very happy to hear they were so easy to make. Next time I'll cut the sugar by half a tablespoon and make 8 or 9 rolls.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
WOW, this was very tasty with Jay's pizza crust. I was out of onion powder and fresh garlic, so I used minced onion and garlic powder and didn't add the honey. Although it tasted good after mixing, let sit for a few hours in the refrigerator and WOW. Next time I'll add more heat as we like things with a nice kick. I will not buy the jarred pizza sauce again.

Crunchy Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
We thought this was pretty bland, especially the non-pea salad eaters. Didn't use as much water chesnuts and still thought there was too many. Loved the radishes, red onion and dill though.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Used ff half and wheat flour which contributed to a slightly sweet soup. Next time I will use vegetable broth and a combination of mushrooms instead of all white. Overall a very tasty soup that we'll have again; I'd rate it at 4.5 stars if I could.

Sweet and Sour Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Light and healthy. I used half of the sugar and thought it needed more vinegar. Will make again when in the mood for something different.

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I used have portabella mushrooms and half white with a bit of red onion. Also added 1 clove of garlic and used the imersion blender prior to adding about half cup of light sour cream. Even with the ff milk, light butter and sour cream, it is very rich tasting. Will definitely make again and again.

Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I had to use dried dill (at 1/2 teaspoon) but followed the recipe exactly for the rest. Unlike other reviewers, I needed to add a bit more lowfat buttermilk (about 1/4 cup) to reach the consistency we like. It was excellent after making and I'm sure will be even better tonight/tomorrow.

French Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
As is the recipe yielded 2 flat loaves of bread. With the suggestions of other reviewers and the addition of garlic powder, the bread had a mild flavor. Did not rise as expected after removal from the bread machine. Will try a different recipe next time. I made this again today and used very hot water and a tad more yeast - much better results, especially with letting rise in the hottest room of the house. Definitely will make again with more yeast (about a healthy pinch more).

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Made this using skim milk, no salt chicken broth, low sodium soy sauce, half the dill, and about half of the low fat sour cream and no lemon juice (out of lemons). Was still rich and thick and plenty flavorful but we still had way to much dill and not really to our tastes. We prefer Mushroom Soup without Cream or Golden State Mushroom Soup. Will not make again.
