Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Love this recipe. I have tried to make this somewhat more healthier for us. The few modifications I do is I like to brown a couple of sweet turkey sausage links then remove those onto a plate with a paper towel to get the extra grease out then add it back in later with all of the other ingredients. I then use the same pan for the onions and garlic but I cut the butter down to 2 Tbs. That is plenty. I use about 3/4 of a package of fresh mushrooms diced (even though I don't like mushrooms at all, there is so much flavor in this quiche that they don't bother me). Instead of 8 oz of cheddar, I halve that and then do about 4 oz of smoked gruyere. That is such a great cheese in quiche. I also use Egg Beaters instead of eggs and FF milk. I never use a crust and it turns out fantastic every time. This last time I actually put this in a small casserole dish and it worked out even better becuase usually there is too much to fit into my quiche pan.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
These muffins were fantastic! Based off of a couple of reviews I did tweak it just a little and I threw in some of my own additions. I used All Bran Buds and I soaked them in 3/4 c milk and 1/4 c orange juice. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/3 c because I had sweetened applesauce. I used 1 1/2 t baking soda and 1/2 t baking powder. I added 1/2 t cinnamon and 1/2 t fresh orange zest. These were not dry, not soggy, just perfectly moist and delicious. Nor were they too dense either. My husband LOVED these. Great to make ahead and have something quick and healthy in the morning during the week.

Roasted Garlic Zucchini and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Yummy. I halved the recipe and did a few substitutions. I used one zucchini, about 10 grape tomatoes halved, omitted the onions and 3 teaspoons of chopped garlic from the jar. We love garlic. I added the parmesan cheese before baking and mixed that in as well. And for an extra kick I added about a half tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. I think that really made it. I didn't have fresh basil so I used a couple of the frozen basil cubes from Trader Joe's and threw them in before I put this in the oven and mixed it all together. I baked at 450 for 10 minutes and it came out perfect.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Ok so I made this last night and it was sooooo delish. My husband said it was the best he has ever had. We could have eaten the whole pie last night. It was really easy too which makes it all the more better. I used half a rotisserie chicken from Costco instead of boiling a chicken. I also used frozen peas, carrots and corn instead of chopping veggies. I added ½ a can of healthy request cream of chicken soup in with the broth and milk. I might use cream of celery next time just to try it out. I added about a tsp of garlic powder in with the onions. After reading the reviews I baked it at 400 degrees for 40 mins and covered it the last 10 mins. I bought the Pillsbury refrigerated dough and did an egg wash like suggested. I think next time I will bake my bottom crust for 7 mins before adding in the ingredients because my bottom crust stuck to the glass dish. This is going in our top 3 winter dishes. I can’t wait for leftovers tonight.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This dish was so easy to prepare and so delicious. My husband says he wants me to make this again. I used the tortellini stuffed with pesto from Trader Joe's. There were a few minor changes I made: instead of making the cream sauce, I used Butioni Light Alfredo Sauce (because I already had this on hand). It made the dish so creamy and I think the fat content a little lower then using heavy cream. I also doubled the spinach and the basil (I used fresh basil as well). Loved it!
