Cinnamon Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
We loved these! They're a new family favorite. To make them lower fat, use fat free sour cream, fat free milk, and only 1/4 stick reduced fat butter. Yes, they will not be the ultra flaky, really really yummy kind, as I'm sure they would be if you made them the way the recipe states, but if you're on a low-fat diet, then give it a try this way! They are amazing! (Oh, and one *little* thing I changed was to use white whole wheat flour instead of the all-purpose. Works great.)

New Orleans Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
We didn't like the salty, smoky sausage flavor mixed with the sweet milk. I'm all for trying different combination's, (and it didn't seem odd at all at the time!) but this one just fell flat.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I'm wavering between three and four stars, but I decided to err on the side of generosity. :) I made some changes to the directions which I find easier: cut the tops and bottoms of the sweet potatoes and bake them on a cookie sheet in your oven for about an 1 hour and 30 min. No need to preheat the oven, just turn it directly to 350. Once they come out of the oven and cool a bit, take the skin off by slicing the skin (which should have sort of separated from the potato) down the middle (like you would a hot dog bun) and peeling it off. I think it's so much easier to take the skin of after you bake them. From there, mash them up with the sugar, butter (I used about 3 Tbsp), orange juice, and cinnamon. Follow the rest of the directions from here. :) Bake for approx. 20 minutes in the preheated 350 F oven. Yummy.

Low Fat Full Flavor Cream of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Amazing soup! I subbed onion for the leeks (simply because the grocery didn't have any), though I'm sure the leeks are better. Thank you!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
2.5 stars. As other reviewers have noted, the chili needs some more flavor. I also thought the pumpkin and turkey flavors didn't really go together.

Light 'n' Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Amazing mashed potatoes. I used fat free sour cream and not as much milk. They were amazing, and I could barely tell they were fat free. Another thing I found easier was to chop the potatoes up and then steam them for about 30 minutes.

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Okay, I make it a little differently just for ease of cooking, but it comes out great! I use pre-cut pork chops, trim the fat off, put them on a baking sheet, and rub the spices over them. I bake at 400 for about 14-15 minutes. Then I pour the glaze over each and serve. Yum.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this one. While the idea sounded nice, it had a terrible aftertaste.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I so wanted to love these pancakes. The flavor was amazing, they just didn't cook in the middle. I think if I had thinned the batter down they would have worked just fine. I'll probably try them again with some changes. Mine were burnt on the outside and just barely cooked enough in the middle.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I would give this 5 stars the way I make it which is to spray the plate with cooking spray, spread out the potato slices, sprinkle with salt and then spray with cooking spray again. A tablespoon of oil is overkill. Five minutes worked for me perfectly.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
4.5 stars. For a muffin with hardly any fat, amazing. The only gripe I have (and I was expecting it) is that they come out slightly rubbery because of the substitution of applesauce for oil. Still, they were very good. Make them with cinnamon and nutmeg for a slightly jazzed up muffin. Oh, and add a dash of salt. (One last little thing: if you don't want to wake up two hours earlier just to soak the oats, then combine the milk--or 1 Tbsp. vinegar and enough milk to fill one cup--and oats and soak them overnight in the fridge.)

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
My search for the perfect French toast is over! I misread the recipe and put in only two eggs and two tbsp. sugar. Turned out perfectly and I didn't notice my mistakes until tonight. All I can say is wow! I liked that it didn't taste like egg-fried bread and the extra tbsp. of sugar gave it a nice sweetness that wasn't overpowering. Delicious.

Nectarine Blush

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I would give it five stars, but I didn't think that was fair considering that I changed the recipe some. I took CC's advice and chopped the nectarine up, froze it and then used half OJ and half buttermilk. The buttermilk would have been overpowering if I had used the full cup. (and I love buttermilk!) So the recipe, as is, would be good, but not something I make again. With those changes, it is now my all-time favorite smoothie!

Easy Orange Cream Slush

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
This was alright. It wasn't anything outstanding, and it tasted a little watered down. I think if I make it again, I would eliminate the sugar, increase the OJ to 3/4 cup, add 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt, and use only 4-5 ice cubes.

Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Maybe the coconut oil has something to do with the taste. I left that out and I used spinach, which I thought would be easier to cover up. Now I'm not so sure. It tasted like lightly sweetened liquid spinach. So even thought it gets two stars for health, I'm not going to make it again.

Cucumber-Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Delicious salsa. I leave the onion out, and it doesn't need it. Make sure you put the mango in (I didn't one time because I didn't have any) because it really makes the flavors zing. :)

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
They would get five stars, but the cooking time is off. I baked them for 25 min. and they came out perfectly done. However, mine were not the really super crispy type, so if you like that type better, then go ahead and bake them for 40-45 minutes.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
The best ever! These were so good. To make less fat in the whole thing but just as moist, just whip 1/2 stick of softened butter and 1/4 cup water (make sure you add the water in gradually while whipping). Use half the butter mixture in the dough and half with the cinnamon sugar. It worked beautifully, and it cut the amount of fat (from the margarine/butter) from 7.6 grams to 3.8 grams. The only other thing I did differently was to put the rolls in a 9x13 inch baking pan. I decreased the oven temperature to 350 (25 degrees less) and cooked them for 20 min. The centers were cooked and the tops were not charred. :) Delicious.

Razzy Blue Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I'll admit I was skeptical about the combination of grape juice and buttermilk, but I was pleasantly surprised! Neither of the flavors were overpowering, but you could still taste them! :) I left out the almonds due to an allergy and I subbed fat free vanilla yogurt for the raspberry yogurt. Update: I made it today using 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1 Tbsp. sugar, and tossing in a few raspberries. Delicious! Thanks again for a wonderful smoothie recipe!

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Hands down the best sugar cookie ever. I used 3/4 stick of butter and I whipped 1/2 cup of water into it. (that was for half of the recipe)
