Souvlaki

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
This is a dependable recipe for pork souvlaki -- you'll get the flavor you're looking for! I made this so I could have pork gyro sandwiches, which were delicious! I used a tzatziki sauce recipe from this site as well (unsure which one, sorry!) The vegetables tasted delicious also, and the pork was really tender. I would use this recipe again, but I will say that my boyfriend found the oregano flavor to be a little strong. I personally liked the strong oregano flavor but maybe it's just not good for some!

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
Great stroganoff recipe! I followed the advice of other reviewers and used 1/2 cup of cream of mushroom and 1/2 cup of sour cream instead of the full cup of sour cream. I also added paprika and some garlic, and left out the mushrooms. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe exactly and it was just what I was looking for! My boyfriend and I both loved it and we finished it quickly! I also scaled the recipe in half for the two of us, and no additional changes were needed to accommodate that.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I really like these. I didn't use the egg because I made just one for myself. I had this just like a regular burger, with American cheese and my regular toppings. I also made a chipotle mayo, as one review suggested, and I loved it with this burger! I would highly recommend that suggestion. Easy and trusty recipe for vegetarian burgers (or vegan if you omit the egg!)

Kelly's Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Nice chili! I cut the recipe in half but still used 2 tablespoons of chili powder, since I like it so much. I also eyeballed the black pepper since I read that this recipe called for too much. I used dark kidney beans and added a garlic clove, and also used low-sodium vegetable broth (again, eyeballed it) instead of the liquid from the beans to cut down on the sodium. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe exactly. It turned out fantastic and I would recommend this recipe for anyone who wants chicken chili but not "white chili."

Vegan Fajitas

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Perfect for a veggie lover like myself! I was going for a meatless meal and decided to try this. I too added more chili powder and cumin, as well as fresh minced garlic (quite a bit) instead of garlic salt. I didn't use salt or pepper. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it was great! Low-calorie but still very tasty! I topped mine with a little bit of blend cheese, too, and had some sour cream on the side for a few bites.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic; I only used the marinade from this recipe.

Give Away Zucchini Grill Out

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Such a dependable recipe! I never marinate the zucchini for as long as this recipe calls for, though; I usually marinate mine for about 30 minutes, tops. I also throw in a garlic clove, since I can't seem to make anything without it :P Grilled zucchini is delicious! I also add bell peppers and/or onions as well sometimes. Another suggestion, if you don't like Italian dressing: try a balsamic vinaigrette, it works great!

Grilled Italian Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
This is good, but way too much cheese. I cut it down a lot. I also brushed mine with balsamic about one minute before removing them -- personal preference. I also threw a garlic clove in the marinade. Good, but can be made better.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
This was a pretty good recipe, I liked trying a new twist on alfredo! I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and also used more garlic than called for (I scaled it down to one serving). I also added a pinch of mozzarella cheese and I used additional pepper on the top. Very good and basic alfredo, I loved that I added an entire zucchini and couldn't even really taste it (even though I like zucchini). I also added more milk once scaled down until the sauce was the consistency I wanted. Very good recipe.

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Delicious! I didn't add the tofu but I would have liked that in this salad as well. The only change I made was adding 1/2 cup of kidney beans and didn't add any salt. I used Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette for the dressing. Reliable and light recipe!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I liked this, but I found it to be a little bland. As my boyfriend described it, it was like macaroni and cheese with chicken. We both expected a little more from this dish; I would add more garlic and herbs for flavor. I also used one package of ground chicken instead of shredded chicken; after it was cooked I had about 2 1/3 cups, a little extra but I used it in the lasagna. I got every dish in my kitchen dirty trying to make this, haha! I would make this again but it won't be something I regularly make; I'll probably use it as a substitute for regular lasagna maybe once every year or two, as my boyfriend suggested. A helpful suggestion I read was to mince the onions really fine; I did, and the texture was much nicer than if I had decided to "chop" the onions. Also, I had to let the dish sit for around 20 minutes to thicken before serving.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
So delicious! I made this just for myself and used up what vegetables I had (broccoli, bell pepper, tomato, carrots, zucchini, onion/garlic) and still used 1 tablespoon of Country Crock (60 calories). I also used spaghetti and lots of garlic (3 cloves) and pepper! I used a couple of fresh basil leaves to top it off, along with a couple dashes of lemon juice. I didn't use balsamic, and since one review suggested leaving it out (but I still wanted it), I improvised with a touch of Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette and stirred it in with the vegetables before roasting. I used one tablespoon of olive oil in all and only used it for roasting. Very, very delicious and a great way to eat up all of your vegetables! It looked soooo good on my plate and I ate it so fast!

Stuffed Chicken Valentino

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Delicious! The only changes I made were adding bread crumbs and I used provolone cheese instead of mozzarella, and I added some fresh spinach. Very good, I will make this again!

Savory Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Delicious! I had never made grilled potatoes before and this recipe attracted me because of the mayo! I had never thought of that for grilled potatoes. This recipe is terrific and great for a change from ordinary potatoes!

Grilled Roasted Red Pepper and Ham Sandwich

Mmm mmm MMM!!! This was a delicious sandwich! I too added the basil pesto as others suggested. I couldn't have asked for a better sandwich! I will definitely make this again, it was superb! Thanks for posting!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
Mine came out pretty good. I didn't have the wine and I really would like to have tried it with the wine. It was a different flavor than I am used to but I am used to more traditional American foods. However, I really enjoyed this dish and would make it again, but my boyfriend (who is kind of picky) tried it and said that "it really wasn't his thing"...so that must mean it didn't taste "bad" but just "different" than what I usually make for dinner. I would use this particular recipe if I were to make it again. I made no changes besides that of the red wine, and I used chicken breasts. Also, I used some of the leftover sauce as a base for a black bean soup, and that was really delicious! (I added black beans, yellow corn, chopped bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, and a little bit of vegetable broth until the soup was the consistency I wanted)

Campfire Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
Great recipe! If desired, you can reduce the amount of butter used if you're watching your diet. I prefer to use a little more garlic, but only because I'm a garlic lover :) I usually make this on the grill, too, and I usually slice the potatoes instead of chopping them. You can use any kind of potato, not only red potatoes.

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
*My review is based on my modification that I later regretted!* The recipe would have been perfect but I added about a half tablespoon of hot chili paste for more heat. I wouldn't add the chili paste if you don't want your pork to taste a lot like the chili paste -- mine sure did! I was kind of disappointed because I tried to keep the amount of chili I added low so that it wouldn't overpower the recipe but it did. So, there's a review on what happens if you add hot chili paste :) I used Sriacha. This recipe would have been perfect without the paste and I would have been better off adding more red pepper flakes for the spiciness I desired. I will use this recipe again, though, but make it as-is! I marinated the pork in the mixture for about 4 hours. **Another idea: I re-heated the marinade to a low boil and added about 1/4 cup of peanut butter and some water to thin it and made a DELICIOUS spicy peanut sauce for dipping! Again, this was with the Sriacha paste so that may affect the flavor! In any case, it was soooo good! I suggest trying it!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
An easy and trusty recipe! I have made this many times. It's easily adaptable -- if you're feeling garlicky, add some; if you're feeling spicy, add some cayenne. You really can personalize this recipe to your tastes and still get great results!

Ten Clove Garlic Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
You can't go wrong with this marinade! I added a touch of sesame oil and left out the soy sauce to keep the sodium low. Very dependable recipe! Good for any kind of meat.
