Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
The spices and seasoning in this soup really add great flavor to a classic. I modified this by adding some frozen peas and corn and used whole wheat egg noodles to make it a little healthier. I did use more noodles than it called for because I'm not a fan of brothy soups. I accidentally grabbed the wrong bottle out of my cabinet and added a little allspice before I realized it, but it stilled turned out great. Maybe a stellar secret ingredient?

Quinoa with Carrots and Raisins

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This is pretty good, but I would call it more sweet than spicy. If I make it again, I would cut down on the raisins (maybe 3/4 cup) and add more walnuts. They make it delicious! I added all the pumpkin pie spice, despite other reviews, and I wouldn't want to cut down on that at all.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
These were excellent! I sliced them instead of cubing them to cut down on the bake time. They took about 25 minutes total. Some other reviewers said there was too much ginger, but I thought they were great. It does have a strong ginger flavor, so if you aren't a huge fan,you should probably cut back.

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I made this for a party and got lots of compliments. I marinated for about 7 hours and served with mango salsa. The chicken was juicy and tender.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
These are nearly guilt free waffles and so good! Some other reviewers said you don't need syrup, which I scoffed at. However, they are pretty good plain and just a little syrup goes a long way! I also tried almond butter in place of syrup for some extra protein and it was great. Like others, I substituted oatmeal for wheat germ because I didn't have it. This is definitely going to be my go to recipe!

Lime-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Pretty good, but maybe a little too much lime for my taste. That was about all that I could taste!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
This was great. I used 1 can of diced tomatoes w/ chilis in place of 1 can of black beans. I think it would be way too many beans otherwise. If you are a fan of Chipotle's burrito bowls, try this quinoa topped with fajita style green peppers, onions and chicken, along with some salsa and sour cream. It makes an excellent meal!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I don't know if I'd call it "world's best" but it is pretty darn good! Plenty of sauce. I agree with other reviewers that the sauce would be great as a sauce with any pasta. Yum! The sauce makes this a time consuming project, but it's completely worth it!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
this is a great start that i've made several times. Definitely boil the orzo in chicken stock and load up on veggies! I've added mushrooms, peas and diced tomatoes. Used some italian seasonings and more garlic to spice it up.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I just whipped this up and it's awesome! So easy! The tahini I found at my local grocery was salted, so I left out the salt and it's perfect. Just a warning - it's got some kick. I love it, but just hope my guests feel the same way. :)

Egg-White Crepes

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Excellent crepes! Simple and seem to be healthy. I used all-purpose flour because it's all I had, but they turned out great. I filled one with fruit and a little light and fit vanilla yogurt and one with bananas and peanut butter to add a little protein to my breakfast. Delicious! I'll make these again for sure!

Italian Sausage Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
I doubled this so I could freeze a pan. I used hot italian turkey sausage and whole grain lasagna, added an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and some Oregano & Italian seasoning. I also added some parmesan to each cheese layer instead of just the top. My husband said it was the best lasagna he's ever had! I think the "World's Best Lasagna" from this site is better, but this recipe requires far less prep time! This is definitely a keeper.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I added about a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon like other reviewers mentioned. I baked it for about 55 min and I still don't think the center was quite done. It tasted delicious, but didn't look as good as it tasted. If I make it again, I will put the plums over the whole top and then just put the blueberries underneath that. This is excellent served warm with ice cream!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
Great and super easy. The only change I made was to add Heath bits to every layer and top. It's really rich. I may try this again using sugar free pudding, low fat condensed milk and lite cool whip to make it a little less sinful to eat!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
The glaze is very tasty. I didn't feel that it was too sweet like some others said, but it's probably just a personal preference thing. Very good and VERY easy with ingredients I had on hand. I'm sure I'll make it again some time.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This was one of the easiest homemade salsas I've ever made. I drained the cans of tomatoes and used 2 fresh jalapenos instead of the chiles. I also used a little more onion than it called for. Just pulsed it 3 or 4 times and it was a perfect consitency! It definitely tastes like restaurant salsa (not sure if that is a good or bad thing) but I got a ton of complements on it when I served it at my superbowl party.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This was the best Turkey I've ever had. It was my first time making a Turkey for Thanksgiving and I got a ton of compliments on it. I did a brine first. Rubbing the mixture under the skin was gross, but I tried not to think about it. Turned out moist and wonderful!

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Good and thick and creamy. Serving sizes per the recipe would be pretty small, so if you plan to use it as a main dish, you will want to plan on more.
