Turkey Lasagna with Butternut Squash, Zucchini, and Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I mistakingly bought a butternut squash instead of a spaghetti squash so I came here looking for a way to use it. Came across this recipe and absolutely loved it! I am a full time working mom with two young kids so I did the speedy version. I did not make my own sauce, I used Newman's Own Sockaroni sauce. I microwaved the butternut squash whole and then peeled and sliced it into thin slices once it cooled. Next time I will buy frozen spinach and thaw it to speed things up even more. Also, I did not use all of the cheese mixture, the lasagna was plenty big without using all of it and I figured it would cut down on the calories as well. Still turned out wonderfully and I love that this is a much healthier version of traditional lasagna. Thank you for sharing!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Absolutely delicious! The only change I made was I used extra virgin olive oil instead of veg. oil because that's all I had. I only let it marinate for about 30 minutes, I think the basting towards the end is more important than the marinating. I used chicken, red pepper, onion, and pineapple. Definitely a keeper!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
Sorry to say but I wasn't impressed with this recipe. I love sweet potatoes and actually like them plain so I thought I would like this because it was just a couple of ingredients. They were just okay and I wouldn't make again.

Sweet-Sour Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Really liked this recipe. Made a few modifications, I used craisins and sunflower seeds in place of the raisins and peanuts and added some reduced fat shredded cheese. Used 1/3 c reduced fat mayonnaise. I thought there were a lot of craisins and sunflower seeds in comparison to the amount of broccoli so I think next time I will double the amount of broccoli and used the full amount of mayo. Overall, very good recipe and I will make again!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
All I can say is AMAZING! I took another reviewer's idea and used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. My husband said it tasted like a big brownie with a hint of peanut butter. I even made it slightly healthier by using reduced fat sour cream, two eggs and two egg whites, and applesauce instead of the vegetable oil. It was incredibly rich and moist, will definitely be making this again.

Grilled Rock Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This recipe was excellent, I didn't use the paprika or white pepper which I'm actually glad I didn't. The lobster had a great grilled taste without really tasting the seasoning. We had never made lobster before, went to the grocery store and they had South African tails that were already butterflied so we bought those. My husband cut them off the shell and just cooked them directly on the grill. My first attempt to cook lobster turned out excellent, thanks for the great recipe.

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This is a really good recipe. I've made it a couple of times and the meat just falls apart. I really like that it has a bit of a kick to it, makes it different than most roast recipes. The only thing I do different is I pour the bbq sauce and Worchshire on top of the roast instead of putting it in on the bottom of the crock pot. I added potatoes and carrots last time and they turned out really good as well.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I used this recipe with one of the oven bags. It turned out moist and absolutely delicious! I mixed the olive oil mixture the night before so the flavors could blend. It only took about 2 hours for my 14 lb turkey to cook in the bag. I got rave reviews from everyone and the turkey disappeared quickly, no leftovers this year! This is the only recipe I will use from now on. Thanks for sharing!

Meatball Grinders with a Yummy Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
My husband is a huge meatball fan so I thought these would go over pretty well. I dug out part of the roll as someone else suggested and it really helped keep the meatballs in place. Also, I only used about a 1/4 of the jar of apple jelly. These were great!

Guacamole Cilantro Lime Cheeseburger

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This was okay, I was really excited for it but it wasn't as great as I had hoped. Followed the recipe exactly except for I used pepper jack cheese. The guacamole wasn't the best I've ever had.

Pizza with Pepper, Onion and Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
My husband and I really liked this recipe. I used a refrigerated crust and baked it for about 5 minutes and then added the ingredients and baked for another 6 or 7 minutes. I wasn't sure if I would like this or not, I'm a big sauce person but we loved it. My husband commented that it tasted like it was from a restaurant. I didn't have green or yellow pepper so I just used red pepper.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I let the chicken marinate overnight and set aside some of the sauce to pour over the chicken after it was done. (Set it aside before placing it on the raw chicken). I also marinated some green pepper, red pepper, and onion in the sauce and placed those on skewers and grilled them up too. Made some rice to go along with it, nice healthy and light dinner!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. We eat meat almost every night for dinner so I'm always looking for some good recipes that don't include meat to change things up a bit. The only changes I made were that I added a little lime juice with the cilantro and added some salsa in the tortilla. I used fat free cream cheese so this was a very light and easy recipe. The hardest part was just chopping everything up!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Unfortunately this recipe was not one of my favorites. The orzo noodles reminded me of mushy rice and the flavor was just so so. It was edible but not something I would ever make again.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Loved these! I am not a vegeterian but am trying to not eat meat one day a week. I added chopped jalapenos and a little lime juice and left out the red pepper flakes. I also just used cooking spray instead of the oil. I took the suggestion of baking in the oven for 10 min at 350 and then broiling at the end and that worked well if making multiple quesadillas at one time. Stove top works fine if you are just making one.
