Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
If you like spicy, you'll love the flavor. I added hot sausage as well. Very tasty! Leave plenty of time for prep work and cooking. Rice didn't cook well, even after two hours. Next time, I will try to pre-cook rice using some of the broth from the bake and adding it to the bake in the end. Highly recommend this recipe.

Macaroni and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Very tasty. Instead of milk, I added Fat Free Half and Half - creamier and thicker than milk. I also used shredded vs. sliced cheddar so that I could top the bake with it to make it golden brown (and add a little extra inside for a cheesier flavor). I also topped with sprinkled bread crumbs and paprika.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I tried this recipe for Christmas dinner and there wasn't a piece of meat left. I used fat free half and half and small red pearl onions since I did not have shallots. I also rubbed the the tenderloin with the dijon mustard and cooked it in a rotisseiri. Fantastic. Would definitely make again.

Baked Stuffed Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Very good recipe, though I did alter it a bit. I used low fat Ritz crackers (better flavor than soda crackers),lite butter, and did not add bread crumbs but instead added two cans of drained crab meat. I also added some Old Bay seasoning for additional flavor. I doubled the recipe and only 5 were left. Fantastic!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I enjoyed this recipe. To cut down on fat and calories, I used a fat free half and half vs. heavy cream. I did use a small amount of cornstarch mixture to add a little thickening to it. I also used a non stick spray when cooking the chicken vs. using oil. This also cut back on fat and calories. The cicken did take longer than 4 min. per side. Delicious!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
The family didn't like this at all. VERY rich and almost pasty without a ton of flavor. Baked mac & cheese is one of their favorites so I guess I'll go back to my original recipe! Thanks anyway.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Very good! I doubled the recipe, added 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a fully rounded tablespoon of brown sugar and let it reduce. I grilled my seasoned filets separately until internal temp was 160° and made the glaze on the side. Would definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Very tasty - great warm! I did have to cook it longer as the middle seemed to stay very soft. It is a sweet dish since cooked sweet potatoes are naturally sweet so I would maybe cut down the white sugar a tad next time. Otherwise, I wouldn't make any changes. Delicious!

Tasty Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Very tart. I added 4 Splenda to sweeten it a bit more. Kids seemed to like it though!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Fantastic! My Dad loves spicey and for him to tell me to let him know when I make it again tells you it's good! I did substitute the sausage for hot turkey sausage to cut down on the fat. I also doubled the recipe but instead of full cans of diced tomatoes, I used one 28oz can of crushed tomatoes and drained a 12 oz can of diced tomatoes and added them in. We served it over brown rice. I will DEFINITELY be making this a staple in my house.

New England Clam Chowder II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Delicious! More flour needed if you like it thicker. We make our own steamed clams with all the fixins and use the broth from that cook as the base. I also added extra clams, celery and chopped up the leftover chourico and linguica from the cook and added it right in. Hubby said it was good enough to enter into a contest. Thanks for the great recipe!

Kale Krisps

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
Very good use of the kale as it takes out some of the natural bitterness kale has. One tip - rather than shred the kale, roll a few leaves like you would basil and chop thin. Quick and easy. I will definitely make it again.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This has become a regular in my house. I do cook the chicken longer because unless pounded down, the breasts need more cooking time. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing. Just one recommendation - use a really good balsamic vinegar. This is a keeper!

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Absolutely delicious. The changes I made are I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. Also, instead of oil, I used 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt and 1/2 cup applesauce, and threw in dried cranberries. VERY moist and perfect right out of the oven. I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing.

Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Very good! Very quick and easy dish to make. I added peanuts vs. cashews as that's all I had on hand. For leftovers, I served over pasta and it was just as good. Thanks for sharing.

Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
These became my teenagers new favorite pancake. I took the advice of others and let the batter sit a bit to soften th oatmeal. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. Delicious!

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I doubled the recipe but because I only had one jalapeno, I added a bit of cayenne for more spice. I did use the tomato sauce and took the recommendation of using coconut milk. The potatoes were still a bit firm but they did finish cooking in the coconut milk. I also added a touch of cumin. It's a cross between indian and thai curry but it's delicious! Will definitely make it again. Next time, will use less potatoes and serve over brown rice. Delish!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
I did a 4 star only because I felt the recipe, which is good!, needed a little something. I referred to other viewers and added a tsp of vanilla and a tsp of cinnamon. Then, added some chocolate chips.Helpful hint: I always mash and free old bananas - 3 to a bag which one bag is good per batch. Once thawed, it creates enough juice to moisten the batter. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
I am always looking for new recipes because one of my daughters doesn't eat most meats. This was super easy, and delicious. I used chicken broth because I didn't have vegetable broth but that was the only change I made. My daughter's comment is that I now need to make this once per week. I will defintely make it again!
