Crawford Berry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
Such a delicious, fresh-tasting smoothie! I used frozen berries, almond milk instead of the soy, and 1 packet of Truvia instead of the agave. Next time, I will use a frozen banana, too, to make it slushier.

Low-Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Oh. My. Goodness. This is my new favorite smoothie. I made half the recipe for a single serving.

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
I couldn't believe this orzo and rice combination was as flavorful as it was with just butter, onion, garlic, and a can of chicken broth. I followed the recipe exactly. It was the perfect accompaniment for salmon.

Strawberry Blueberry Smoothies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
I love smoothies, and this one is no exception. I used nonfat black cherry greek yogurt because it's what I had as well as flax seed instead of the oil. Delicious way to start the day!

Quick Banana Milkshake (Ice Cream Free)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
I love recipes like this because I can adapt them so easily. I used almond milk, a frozen banana with no added ice, and Truvia instead of sugar. A quick low-cal pick-me-up snack for the afternoon.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
Delicious and easy chicken recipe! I subbed boneless chicken thighs, light soy sauce, and white vinegar. Then I cooked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Great served over brown rice with a side of green beans.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
Extremely fudgy, dark chocolate brownies. The only problem was the icing. It was crumbles and wouldn't spread on the warm brownies. So off it came. I added just enough milk to make it spreading consistency, put it back on top, and spread. Turned out just fine.

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
This is such a typical Southern side dish (or used to be), but I'm afraid I've lost my taste for grease. I knew that the directions didn't call for draining the grease, so I'm not going to knock off stars for something I don't care for anymore. (To think, we used to cook all vegetables in bacon grease!) It did have a good flavor otherwise. Since I am salt sensitive, I added salt to my tasting. I might cook this again, but play with draining the grease and adding just a little chicken broth or water to wilt the cabbage.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
A delicious banana bread recipe. Very sweet though. Just know that before you make it. Personally, I will decrease the sugar a little bit next time. It also makes a lot! I ended up making 6 muffins, 9 mini loaves, and one regular 9 x 5 loaf.

Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
I love this soup with a few tweaks for personal taste. I used diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano. Oh, the flavor the spices gave to this soup was marvelous! I added only 1/2 the sugar called for because of personal preference and might could use even less. Since I cut the recipe in half, I simmered the tomatoes for only 30 minutes. At the end of that time, I used my immersion blender but did not blend the mixture smooth. I then heated the cream in the microwave and added it very slowly while whisking into the tomato mixture. The half recipe called for 1 cup cream, but I had only 3/4 cup which was plenty. I can't believe this will serve 8-12 people. I cut the recipe in half and could have eaten all of it!

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
Loved these potatoes! I only had russets, so I sliced them uniformly and followed directions. I admit that I did add more parmesan to the tops of the potatoes but only because my parmesan was frozen and didn't stick very well. These are actually crispy on the outside. I will definitely make these again, bellepepper!

Cowgirl Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
This makes a lot, so be aware of that when you make it. This soup is good but needs additional seasoning, which would probably be different for every family. It is somewhat similar to Taco Soup if additional seasoning were added.

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Such a fresh tasting dip and one that feels healthy. I used a combo of red and green peppers, omitted one of the jalapenos, and omitted the cilantro because no one in my family except for me likes it.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
A delicious way to fix sweet potatoes! I used only 1 tsp. paprika and omitted the poultry seasoning because another dish I was serving had poultry seasoning in it and I didn't want two dishes with the same flavor.

Reindeer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
What child (inner child even) wouldn't like this? This sandwich certainly brought a smile to the face! Chocolate chips for the eyes and a red hot for the nose work just fine when one is out of raisins and cherries. Thanks for the idea, T. L.

Starbucks® Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I loved this! I used Truvia instead of sugar and skim milk, which turned this into a Caramel Frappuccino Light. My newest addiction!

Coconut Cream Coffee Creamer

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
This wasn't what I was hoping it would be. There was an aftertaste that I didn't care for.

Hot Carmel Apple Juice

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
This drink is ok but not my favorite of the spiced apple drinks I've tried on this site.The juice becomes thick (which doesn't appeal to me), and all the spices settle in the bottom of the cup.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
Perfect for my weekly meatless meal. Add a salad and you have a great dinner. I squeezed the water out of the spinach by hand before putting it in a pan and warming it. I had 3 oz. too little cheddar, so I added that amount of mozarella. It worked just fine. I also omitted the croutons hoping to cut calories just a bit.
