Ham and Pear Panini

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Really good and easy (of course, it's a sandwich). I liked it better with a nice sharp cheddar, which I had to use when my mozzarella went bad. But I'm all about intense flavors.

Spicy Lemon Pork Saute

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Is there a secret to making this without it being all dried out? Very disappointed. I used boneless pork chops and followed the recipe exactly. Very tough and dry.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Ehhhh...I'm not a fan of ground turkey and even less a fan of meatloaf, but I gave this a shot. It's OK. My boyfriend loves meatloaf, so we'll see what he thinks when he tries it. OK, updated after the BF ate some. I added a star - he said it's very good, but we both felt it could use more onion and maybe some green peppers? I don't know. I'll make it again. He put extra hot sauce on it. Really couldn't even taste the tbsp that I'd put in the recipe. Maybe a hotter hot sauce next time? I used Frank's.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
I love this really easy recipe and just can't get over how much better making it fresh is than getting it from a jar. I've made this a few times, both using the recipe as is and taking others' suggestions. The As Is is my favorite way. Has the best flavor and texture.

Delicious Grilled Hamburgers

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
These were excellent. Using the suggestions, I also halved the liquid smoke and used fresh garlic instead of powder. I also put smoked gouda on top and they were absolutely delicious. I used ground bison sirloin. Looking forward to warm weather so I can try these over charcoal.

Colorado Buffalo Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This is very good chili. I got about 7 servings out of the recipe (1 cup per serving). Not sure how the nutritional data came up with such a low calorie and fat amount, but it's still acceptable to the diet.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
Very tasty. I left the skin on for extra nutrition and threw in a handful of pine nuts, just because they were there and I like them. Sweet potatoes are so good for you, I didn't want to ruin them with all the extra stuff people are using.

Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Wow - I actually like this better than spaghetti with sauce. I even went back for halves (half of seconds). I'll be very sad when squash season is over.

Asian Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
Very good and easy!!! Something tells me that once my boyfriend gets here, I won't have any left for lunch tomorrow. I didn't use ramen noodles because I just remember them being so salty when we used to eat them in college. I used crunchy Chinese noodles instead.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I give this a "baked kale chips... heh.... go figure!" They're very good! Wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm definitely pleased. I used Pam Olive Oil because I figured I'd get more of an even coating, and save calories. And you're right, I couldn't eat just one.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Well, I sort of messed this one up a little because I was short a bit of quinoa and adjusted the broth wrong. And I hate cilantro, so I planned to use parsley... except I forgot to get it. But.... it's still really good! It's really so much easier to eat healthy when there are recipes like this.

Quick Lemon Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Yup, this is a good one! So easy and very tasty. I served it with some quinoa instead of rice for more nutrition and less carbs.

Mediterranean Quinoa

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
Wow! I love this!!! I'm glad I read the other reviews and made it with less broth and more quinoa. I used 2 cups of chicken broth & 1cup quinoa, then took another suggestion and put a little feta on top. I also doubled the garlic because I'm a nut for it. I will be making this one regularly.

Broccoli Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
It came out watery. The broccoli wasn't completely thawed, so that may be why. My daughter gagged. Since I made it for her, I guess it won't stay in the recipe box

Wild Rice Spaghetti Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Was I supposed to cook the rice first? My batch did not come out with a "thick" sauce. It tastes pretty good but the rice is a little crunchy. Lol. I'm gonna cook the rice first next time I think

Artichoke Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Very good salad. I left out the mushrooms because of an allergy and used plain non-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for extra nutrition and even less fat.

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas and Ginger

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Yummmmmm! I doubled up on the ginger and pepper, because I wanted some intensity and this was really good. I served it over some Barilla Plus angel hair pasta to get more nutrition than white rice. Very pleased to add this to my recipe box.
