Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
Great recipe! I did add a little more white wine and Parmesan cheese and it was perfect for our taste. I used 2 cups of Baby Bella mushrooms and that worked just fine. For those who think the wine is going to affect an "alcoholic or 3 yr old" It WILL not! Alcohol burns off with the heat, so do not feel that you're giving alcohol to someone if you cook with 4 oz of wine and 32 oz of chicken broth!!! Basically you're cooking with 36 oz of LIQUID...I found this article - maybe this will help explain: "Alcohol itself doesn't add flavor to dishes so much as it helps release flavor molecules in foods and assists in dissolving fats, allowing ingredients to reveal their own unique flavors in ways that other liquids (like water or broth) or fats (like butter and olive oil) cannot. When adding wine to a sauce, make sure you allow most of the alcohol to cook off" Allow the sauce to reduce by half in an open pan to let the alcohol cook off. Now you know you know how to cook with wine :)

Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This is a great "base" for Potato Soup! I added a tsp. of minced garlic to the onion and since I didn't have mashed potatoes I added cubed Red Potatoes that I already had boiled for 8 minutes, I added them to the onion & garlic mixture with a half cup of chicken broth and let them cook for 10 minutes. This allowed me to mash some of the potatoes in the pot which made my soup thicker. I used the amounts listed for the broth and milk and my soup wasn't runny/thin it was perfect consistancy. I also added 2/3 cup of chopped cooked ham, 1 tsp. of sea salt, 1/2 tsp of Basil, 1/2 tsp of Pepper and 1 tsp of Parsley. I topped each bowl with a spoonful of Kraft 2% shredded Mexican cheese blend - turned out to be a really good soup! I will definately make this again.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
It turned out perfect, I too made changes, I used 1/2 c. whole wheat flour,1 c unbleached all purpose flour, 1/2 c. organic cane sugar, 1/2 tsp. sea salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1 egg, 3 smashed banana's, 2 tsp. vanilla, 1/3 c. applesauce and 1/4 c. nuts. So it's still almost no fat - very moist with great flavor!

Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I thought this recipe sounded great but didn't have all the ingredients so I added a can of Roasted Diced Tomatoes which gave us more sauce, instead of half&half I made a sauce with 3/4 c. skim milk, 2 tbsp Flour, 2 Tbsp Shredded Parm/Romano/Asiago and 2 tbsp lite Parmesan cheese (tasted Great!)had no bacon but I seasoned the Shrimp with garlic, 1/2 tsp. Red Pepper and 1/8 tsp ground black pepper to add flavor and I sauted this in a Garlic infused Olive oil. Next time I'll use less Green Onions, I left out the other cheese it wasn't needed and the way I made it was lower in Fat. We had a nice big salad and a glass of Pinot Noir with it - Perfect.
