Balsamic Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
NOTE FROM THE SUBMITTING COOK: When I'm in a hurry but still want a tasty/something-different/fast side dish, I buy the bag of pre-chopped and washed shredded cabbage, along with a bag of matchstick carrots. I usually don't trust the pre-washed salads but since this is getting heated on the stove I'm more apt to give it a quick rinse then throw it in the skillet. Not the same as doing it by hand but it's great in a time pinch!

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I'm sure it doesn't taste the same, but since I have to cook gluten-free and casein-free for my autistic daughter (see my blog on the autism diet on this website), I replaced the butter with spray vegetable oil and replaced the milk with apple juice, since I was using apples anyway. To cover up all the fruity flavor I used a tomato flavored chicken boullion instead of the chicken broth.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I wanted to make this for my girls before school on those chilly fall mornings, but I also wanted it to be a healthy, filling breakfast. I used diet Mountain Dew and Splenda instead of sugar, used spray cooking oil in place of butter, but best of all...I put down a layer of shredded cheddar cheese on the crescent roll before placing the apple wedge to up the protein and calcium (I'm sure fat free cream cheese would work too). I'm sure it's not the same as the original recipe, but it's a school-morning variation and it was absolutely delicious! Best of all, I had the pan prepared the night before so I just popped it in the oven in the morning while they dressed.

Candied Apples III

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Just for fun I made candied apples one year at Christmas with a candy cane instead of a stick. Start a punch hole with a small paring knife then put the non-hook end into the apple so the crook of the cane sticks out. I also crushed starlight mints candies and rolled the apples in the crushed candies, mostly just for decoration (not so much for flavor). They were really pretty!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I cut the fat and calories on this recipe by using fat free cream cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch powder instead of the actual ranch dressing. I still got the ranch flavor in there but without the fat. If it's too thick, add some skim milk.

Vietnamese Beef And Lettuce Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
A great, easy meal that was not the same old thing. I feel like I'm always trying to find new ways to stuff ground beef into my family without it being boring. I did substitute with cube steak (I was out of ground beef), and I replaced the lettuce with chopped spinach to pack a little more nutrition. Awesome dish!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Well, I wish I'd read the review about adding more dough was a little crumbly, but nothing we couldn't work with. To keep down on the fat at the end of the process I used water in a spray bottle, sprayed the pretzels, then sprinkled them with salt. As the water dries the salt sticks! Great taste, even with my challenging dough!

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Thank you for taking the time to sit down and submit this. My daughter is on a very restrictive diet for autism, and she can eat this! She's going to go crazy!!! Thank you again, and keep submitting! SECOND NOTE: I made this recipe again today and I have to comment again. This time I cut the margarine down to only half a stick (1/4 c) to save on the fat and I used a 50/50 mix of brown sugar and Splenda (still totaling one cup) to save on was still awesome! I was afraid the caramel mixture might not turn out right since I messed with the measurements, but it was still perfect!

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
It's going to sound crazy, but my family doesn't really love kielbasa or brats, so I just used ground sausage. I browned it in the skillet and added it to the lentils like you would add ground beef to chili. It was still awesome! Great recipe!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Great recipe! My daughter has to eat gluten-free and casein-free because of autism, so I replaced the graham cracker crumbs with rice krispies (crushed) and the margarine with a milk-free version. I'm sure it wasn't the same as the original version, but still really tasty!
