Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
I also added ground flax seed and fresh blueberries. I mixed the walnuts with pecan pieces. Not too bad at all. Loved using the applesauce! Maybe I'll try it with dark chocolate chips next time. :)

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I used this as a base recipe. I substituted the Alfredo packet with jarred speghetti sauce. I threw in fresh basil, rosemary, chopped tomatoes and sliced mushrooms. I also dramatically increased the amount of spinach and didn't add pesto. Since I'm trying watch my carbs, I completely eliminated the penne pasta. I served it with Quinoa. Not exactly the right pairing, but it's a good substitute.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Great recipe! I took the advice of a reviewer and added beef bouillion to my meat (I browned 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 extra lean ground beef). Good call! :)

Casey and Leigh's Delightful Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I agree with the previous reviewer. Forget the yogurt. Use one pkg cream cheese, one container marshmello fluff and some vanilla extract. Add a couple dashes of food coloring and you have an excellent fruit dip! :)

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Not worth the extra effort of making regular fresh green beans. May try again, but add garlic or herbs to the recipe.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
I would add more lemon zest to this recipe, for sure. I also, agree with another reveiwer it needs more baking powder so it isn't too dense. Overall, an average cupcake recipe.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Next time I will roast the garlic first. I also used lime juice instead of lemon (only because I was out of lemons).

Hummus III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Great basic recipe. Definitely needs cumin, red pepper flakes and extra spices. Add garbanzo bean juice to food processor to change the texture. Next time I'll experiment with basil and sundried tomatoes! :)

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Definitely double the recipe and add 1 can cream corn, reduce sour cream to 1/4 cup. You may need to increase baking time a bit. Great bread!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Great recipe. Take the advise regarding skimming the fat off the sauce. I also added a packet of crushed hot peppers to spice it up a bit. YUMMY!

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Turned out soggy. I think I put too much topping on it. I'll try it again, but honestly I haven't had much luck making fish dishes.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Recipe didn't say to sear the meat first. This would've improved the recipe greatly. I may try to cook it in the crockpot next time. Also, make sure to use only the amount of "rub" that stays on the meat itself. Do not pile on the extra on top of the meat, it will simply burn.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Substituted ricotta cheese for cottage cheese+pesto mixture. Willl add more herbs next time, including fresh garlic. May want to try it vegetarian style next time, too. Overall good recipe.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Great recipe, though next time I will try to use fresh herbs and less balsamic vinegar. Served with white sticky rice which was a good compliment.
