Spinach Garlic Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This is a great recipe but since my boyfriend doesn't love spinach - I cut the amount in half and added in artichoke hearts and some parmesean cheese...amazing!

Rum Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
First - I used 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup craisins and 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips. I let the fruit soak overnight and saved the liquid which was a good idea b/c I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar (that someone else suggested). The reserve liquid was used to break up the brown sugar. I also cooked agreed with the idea of cooking it at 375 for about 10-12 minutes. My personal name for these cookies is rum-a-licious cookies :)

Healthier Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
I used 1 tablespoon of smart balance with the dark chocolate. I added a pinch of cinnamon to the dark chocolate and it was amazing! Also - depending on the size of the strawberry toothpicks didn't work too well. I just dipped them and placed them on a large dinner plate that had a layer of parchment paper on it. Placed the strawberries there and let them cool for 30-45 minutes. They are great the next day too b/c the sort of ferment and taste great!

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
This recipe is the best recipe I have found but I will say I added a few changes. I tried to make it a bit lower in sodium then what the recipe calls for. I used unsalted pretzels and ground them up in place of the bread crumbs. I also added white cheddar and parmesan cheese (I think the yellow cheddar gets too greasy) I then added for the green element chives instead of oregano and parsley. The cheese is salty enough that you dont need to add extra salt. My husband and everyone we have served this too have fought for the final piece! There are never left overs this way!

Rach's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I think the concept is fantastic! I did agree with people here the eggs were not necessary. Since mayo is made with eggs, I just used a cup and a half of garlic aioli (instead of plain mayo for extra flavor) and it did the same job with more flavor! My husband isn't a huge fan of lots of onions so I used half an onion. My attempt to make this slightly more healthy was by using 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup. Let's just say once these changes were made....it did NOT stay in the house for long! It was gobbled up very fast!
