Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
I didn't have enough breadcrumbs but I threw in some quick-cooking oatmeal (had about 2/3 cup breadcrumbs, added 1/3 oatmeal to finish the 1 cup that the recipe called for) and it worked! I followed other suggestions and added Worcestershire sauce, doubled the sauce and used less mustard -- I think the sauce came out great. I would use this recipe again for easy but tasty meatloaf! Better than my mom's ;)

Classic Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Yay! Finally, my rice turned out!! I'm always going to prepare it this way. I used brown rice and it takes a bit longer than 35 minutes -- I cooked mine for 45 minutes and it was still a little hard. An hour probably would have been best. Foolproof recipe!

Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
A nice chicken recipe -- I used a little bit of pepper and added the parsley to the yogurt mixture. I used margarine so I'm not sure if that made a difference, but I don't think adding the pat of margarine on the top of the breasts helped to make the crumbs crispier. I also added some lemon juice to the breasts once they were on my plate, and I used nonfat greek yogurt. Good recipe, and I would make this again!

White Bean Fennel Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Pretty good; I added some extra beans, garlic, carrots, and Italian seasoning. It was my first recipe with fennel and I liked it! This recipe could be a little bland if you stick with the exact measurements.

Butternut Squash Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
This is an excellent recipe! The only thing I did different was cutting the onion into wedges instead of mincing it -- I think it gave the dish a better presentation. I will definitely use this recipe again! Even my boyfriend, who isn't very fond of squash nor blue cheese, liked it a lot!

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
This is a reliable recipe for seared ahi. I don't use the whole peppercorns, but I do use coarse-ground black pepper and add white pepper. This seems intimidating but be sure to use fresh tuna and it will come out excellent!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This recipe is so fun! You're easily able to make all different kinds of pita chips, and they taste delicious :) The varieties I made were salted, onion and pepper, garlic herb, and parmesan. I left them in my oven for 7 minutes exactly and they came out perfectly. I'd love to serve these at a party with some hummus and toum. This recipe makes plenty of pita chips!

Sweet and Sour Drumettes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Terrific recipe; we all loved it. I followed others' suggestions and added cornstarch and hot chili sauce (Sriacha). I cooked the sauce ahead of baking to ensure it would thicken, and it did. It turned out perfect - nice and spicy with a bit of sweetness! I also used half honey and half sugar, and used red wine vinegar; I used chicken breast sliced into strips instead of drumettes. I served this with brown rice and stir fry vegetables. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Vegetarian Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Pretty good! If I could I'd give it 3.5 stars but 4 works since it helped me to use up all the vegetables in my kitchen, and I love lasagna! I used pasta sauce instead of the diced tomatoes, and halved the amount of vegetables since reviews said there were too many. Instead of dicing the eggplant, I sliced it thinly so it would help to "layer" the dish, and I didn't use instant lasagna noodles (I used a half-box of regular noodles, like in traditional lasagna recipes), and I used canned spinach. I also added garlic, canned sliced mushrooms, onions, chopped green bell pepper, and some different spices but it was still pretty bland - add extra spices! With those changes my lasagna came out pretty good, I would definitely make this again!

Black Bean Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Very good! I used flour tortillas and Mexican-blend cheese instead of cheddar; I also added the avocado afterwards because I'm not too fond of warm avocado. I will definitely use this recipe again, it's very easy and turns out great! For the salsa I used a chipotle-flavored kind and that gave it great flavor.

Unsloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
I loved this recipe! I couldn't believe how close the sauce tasted to meaty sloppy joes, it was perfect! I used red wine vinegar instead of white vinegar, but that was the only change I made. I would definitely use this recipe again and I highly recommend it.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Awesome recipe! Reliable and easy. I scaled it down for only one serving (myself), and based off that I used 1/2 TB less butter; however I used the exact amounts of the other ingredients. I also used fresh garlic instead of powder, added 1/2 slice of provolone cheese, and a dash of nutmeg. I wouldn't recommend adding the provolone like I did unless you like very hearty alfredo sauce; it was creamy-overload for me, in my opinion. The smoky provolone coupled with the nutmeg gave the sauce a warm, rich, and savory flavor. I had this over noodles with a breaded chicken breast and some roasted zucchini and tomatoes on the side.

Skillet Sweet and Tangy Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
This was a nice and easy meal; however, I probably would never make it again. The flavor was good but to me, was reminiscent of the BBQ sauce from the famous fast-food restaurant specializing in roast beef sandwiches. I used red wine vinegar instead of white because that was all I had, and added a bit of black pepper. The sauce was good over the pork chops and rice, though my boyfriend said that it wasn't a recipe he'd request again in the future - and I agreed.

Baked Falafel

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Delicious!!! I followed the recipe, but I left out the coriander because I had none. I really liked this recipe! It was my first time trying falafel and I decided to wrap it in a pita and made a gyro sandwich with cucumber, red onion, tomato, and tzatziki sauce. So good, I will definitely use this recipe again! The falafel was good by itself and good in the gyro - great meatless meal and very filling.

French's® Crunchy Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Delicious and so easy! My boyfriend loved them. So nice for a stress-free and quick dinner! I used thick-cut, boneless pork chops (about .75-1in) and cooked them at a little under 375 for 35 minutes and they came out perfectly. I also added a bit of black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. As one reviewer stated, they would have baked crispier if they had been placed on a rack. Nonetheless, I would definitely use this recipe again; I highly recommend it for a novice cook.

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I used this recipe to make scalloped potatoes for my first time. They turned out really good! I halved the recipe and ended up with a little too much sauce. I will definitely use this recipe again; I also used low-fat substitutions and they were still very tasty!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
I didn't particularly find these "addictive." Matter of fact, I was tired of my burrito by the time I finished it. I love sweet potatoes and burritos but this just didn't do it for me. I did as others suggested and used black beans instead of kidney beans. I used all the ingredients except soy sauce (which I don't care for - too salty), used Mexican blend cheese instead of cheddar (cheddar would have probably been better), and I thought the mustard gave it a strange taste. I wouldn't make these again but I'll admit that they were fun to try once :)

Watercress Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Good stuff! I bought some watercress on a whim and this was my very first time trying it! :) I really enjoyed this soup - the recipe doesn't really need any tweaking. I look forward to the next time I decide to purchase some watercress!!

Vegetable Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I really liked these! I made just one for myself and used two soft taco-size flour tortillas. Because some reviews said this was bland, I added some garlic and a little bit of Extra Spicy Mrs. Dash. I also had sour cream on the side, and used Mexican blend cheese instead of the other two listed. Overall, very easy and tasty recipe...great for those nights when you just don't feel like spending all night in the kitchen!

Vegetable Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Great recipe!! I changed just a few things. I didn't use the additional carrots, and I made "my own" mashed potatoes instead of following this recipe's ingredients. I scaled this down for 2 servings; with that said, I used one finely-chopped tomato and 1.5 tbsp ketchup (which also replaced the sugar in the recipe) instead of the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Also, because I had no onions but had a shallot, I used that instead. So, with those changes, this recipe was verrrrry good! I was surprised at how filling it was. I would recommend this recipe to others! Loved it.
