Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Made using light butter and Splenda Blend. Came out wonderfully and no one knew the difference. Big hit with the family at Thanksgiving.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Loved it. Added green chilies, onion, and garlic to the fillling. Substitute feta for the queso fresco but next time I think I'll try goat cheese. I thought the flavors were fabulous. Very flavorful, though not spicy hot. Not sure what people who found it bland did?

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
LOVE this recipe. I have made it a number of times. I sub cottage cheese, blended in a food processor, for the ricotta. I have even used tofu instead of the ricotta - can't tell the difference. I also skip the butter and cut the cheese - use about 3/4 cup inside and 1/2 cup on top. Still AMAZINGly good and lower cal.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Lightened this by using Uncle Dan's ranch dressing made with Best Foods low fat mayo and 1% milk (used all 2 cups) and using Smart Bacon (vegetarian meat substitute). Also used about 1 cup green onions (adds color)and increased the tomatoes a little and added lettuc. My DH said he couldn't tell it was low fat - highest praise!

Cheddar Beer Triangles

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Very good. I used Miller 64 light beer and Bisquick Heart Smart, added about 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, used reduced fat cheese and added 1/4 cup more cheese. Sprayed with butter-flavored spray oil and dusted with a little more garlic powder. I also added a little extra salt, personal preference. Very, very good.

Tomato Basil Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
This makes way too much for the two of us so I prepared one third of the recipe. I lightened it up a bit by eliminating the olive oil and added a little bit more tomato. Still rich and wonderfully delicious! I can't imagine what the additional olive oil could add besides a lot of calories. I will indulge with this dish again and again!

Easy Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Not my favorite. Bisquick-topped pot pies just don't imitate pie crust pot pies. Won't make again.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I made this weight watcher friendly by using butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes and light coconut milk. I thought it was fabulously, wonderfully delicious!!!! It tasted sinfully rich and was only 1 point per cup! I used an immersion blender to blend all the ingredients into a velvety soup. If you don't have an immersion blender and do a lot of soups get one - they are wonderful!

Fideo (Mexican Spaghetti)

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Yummy, homey comfort food. Be careful not to over-brown the spaghetti. I think you could add things like green chilies and sliced black olives to make it into a wonderful main course. I didn't use the cheese at all in order to reduce calories, and I added a tablespoon of tomato paste, some cilantro and Tabasco. Yum!

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Well, I changed this QUITE a bit to make it vegetarian. I used vegetarian chorizo sausage (soyrizo or trader joes)and substituted it for half the ham. Then I added 1/ cup each green pepper, diced cooked potato, and chopped fresh tomato. I used 2% milk instead of half and half, egg substitute instead of egges, and reduced fat cheese. I didn't let it soak longer than 10 minutes, not having time to wait! Came out delicious but I kind of think it needed more of the egg milk mixture so I might increase that next time. The chorizo is wonderful in it.
