Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
It's good. I would cut the butter in half, or even less...otherwise, it was yummy.

Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
This was delicious, but I would cut down on the broth and add some vinegar and/or lime juice to make it taste more like a Thai peanut butter sauce.

Green Monster Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
I make this same smoothie every day. Just now saw the recipe on here. If you like PB, you'll love this - and it's packed with nutrients - like a whole meal in one :) If you want to make it even MORE healthy, add some flax seed.

Spinach Lasagna II

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
I had serious doubts about this recipe...I didn't think the noodles would cook. I actually did mine all in a slow cooker on high, and in less than 1.5 hours it was perfect!!! (Note: my slow cooker doesn't take long to heat up). I admit I did change a lot of things. Like others, I used canned basil spaghetti sauce, low fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta (tried to strain it a little first - cottage cheese is more watery)...didn't add the parmesan (would've been better with it, but trying to make it more low fat) or mozzarella but instead put some sharp cheddar on the top only. I think that's one of the best things about this recipe: it's versatile, and as long as you include the right amt of liquids, it will turn out beautifully! Since I cut out some of the flavor with the cheese, I added Italian dried spices to the spinach mixture.

Bread Pudding Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Delicious! As others said, I needed to use a loaf of bread and some apples before they went bad. I didn't have applesauce, so I added a little milk instead (like regular bread pudding). To keep it healthier, I didn't do the topping or the crust. That way it's more like a breakfast bake that's healthy and filling. I would probably throw in a little salt next time.

Frozen Yogurt Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
i love this! I was looking for a healthy ice cream like recipe and found this. You can eat is when it's barely thawed or wait longer and it'll be more of a jelloish consistency. I used orange juice instead of water and orange jello for a more creamsicle flavor...next time I'll add mandarin oranges at the end!

Stuffed Tomatoes with Grits and Ricotta

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Delicious! I wanted to do something different with grits, and this was perfect. It takes a while but tastes delicious. I couldn't get ricotta cheese, so I used cottage cheese and it actually turned out (though it made my tomatoes soggy). I used it to stuff some jalapenos--that was even better. I might try mushrooms next time. A great healthy version of delicious stuffing!

Campbell's® Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Definitely a winner. My mom has made this version of post roast my whole life. I was a little nervous about making it for visitors myself the first time--but it turned out wonderfully--you can't ruin it! I received so many compliments that night. DELICIOUS!

Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This really was amazing! I was nervous, as I've never had rice pudding turn out well. I would add more rice next time, as it turns out to be more like a custard with some rice in it.

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Yummy! I substituted plain yogurt for the milk (it seemed to me that's an essential recipe for naan), and put in 2C whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 C white flour (total of 3 1/2 C instead of 4 1/2). I also did mine in the breadmaker on "dough" setting, but accidentally put the 1/4 C butter into the dough--but it turned out delicious! Cooked on a George Foreman grill...best when rolled very, very thin & grilled for a while on one side (without butter on that side--can probably only do this w/ the Foreman Grill), and brushed a butter/garlic mixture onto the top side while it was grilling...then flipped & grilled on buttered side just enough to get a little crispy.

Korean Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
yummy! I love Korean food, and this turned out very similar to things I've shared with Korean friends. Yes, it's salty...I might use less soy sauce next time, but I'm pretty sure Koreans usually use this as a side to eat with the main course--and their sides are usually pretty salty.

Cuban Picadillo

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I've never even had Cuban food, but wanted to make something for a friend who grew up in Miami and misses it. I have to admit I was nervous about tasting it after looking at the ingredients...but it's good! I followed one person's advice and left out the cilantro to make it more authentic (used it today to make cilantro pesto). This a unique, surprising dish; several of my (very white American) friends have tried it and liked it as well.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I like the amount of garlic, but I'm a garlic lover (and used small cloves). I didn't have any nuts, so I just omitted them; and it turned out fine. Same with the Parmesan--I put in a little chicken bouillon as a substitute. I probably only put in half of the olive oil and added some water to keep the fat down, which didn't cause any problems. I threw some ground turkey into the sauce & let it cook on the stove a little, which turned out surprisingly well (though chopped chicken would probably be best). I added some chunks of avocado at the end, which was delicious :) A great, economic recipe...yummy!

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I'm pretty impressed with this recipe. I didn't have several of the ingredients, so I made a lot of substitutions and didn't really expect it to turn out well...but it's still delicious! I didn't have grape nuts, so I put in Special K w/ Berries & nuts...I didn't have walnuts, so I put in extra sunflower seeds. Substituted strawberry preserves for applesauce; blueberry syrup for honey and veg. oil. It still all held together very well (it definitely helps if you press it firmly into the pan) and tastes delicious--a good sweet & salty bar.
