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)

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Add some more seasonings and it becomes a five star dish. Without them it's a four star. Yummy all the same! ;)

Pancakes on the Go

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Very good, hearty and wholesome. I doubled the recipe, and I'm glad I did! They were so yummy. I kept the egg and oil at the same amount, and I used white whole wheat flour instead of the whole wheat and all-purpose. Old-fashioned oats work just fine, too. Thanks for a great recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
These taste like donuts and hands down are the...best...ever! I filled regular muffin cups half-full and baked that for 18 min. Worked perfectly.

Sugar Cookie Drops

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I loved these cookies! They weren't too sweet, not too dense, and not too dry. For a lower-fat version try this: 1 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup butter, and 3/4 cup canola oil. Also, according to other reviewer's suggestions, I added a little salt. Great!

Peachy Tossed Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
One of the very best salads I have ever had. I left the feta cheese out because it is high in saturated fat, and I used those yummy Dole sliced peaches in the plastic container with the blue lid (24.5 oz) b/c peaches aren't in season this time of year (tip: rinse before using--it gets all the syrup off). The only other change I made was to use store-bought poppy seed dressing :) because I had it on hand. Delicious! It goes in my recipe scrapbook! :)

Manicotti Pancakes II

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very good recipe. Tastes like pasta. For a lower-fat version, I used 2 egg whites and 1 egg. Yum!

Corn Relish Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. I used less red onion, and I minced it, I didn't have any fresh basil so I used 1 tsp. dried, (not quite as good I'm sure) and I used fat free Italian Caesar Dressing b/c I couldn't find the reduced fat plain old Italian dressing. Yum!

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
The best basic bread I've tried yet. I didn't have any bread flour so I used half white whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour and added to that about 4 tsp. wheat gluten. For those of you who don't have a bread machine: heat the milk in a saucepan until it reaches 115 degrees F (the liquid in yeast breads should be 105-115), then mixed it with the yeast and sugar. Let sit for 10 min, or until foamy. Mix with flour and salt. Add the egg and margarine (I used a mixture of canola oil and butter, 50/50). Stir until dough *sort of* comes together. Dump dough out onto a floured counter; knead a few times, or until dough comes together. Let rise in the mixing bowl for 1 hour. (I cover the bowl with a damp towel I heated in the microwave.) Preheat oven to 350 F. Check the dough; it should be doubled in size. When poked, it should leave a nice indentation of your finger, not spring back. Gently dump the dough out on the counter and gently shape. Place in a greased (I used metal) bread pan (I think it was a 9x5) and bake for 30-32 minutes. Take out of pan. Let cool for 5 minutes (if at all possible; I didn't because my mouth was watering) and slice. This bread was fabulous. I didn't really change the ingredients at all (except the flour), just the instructions. Thank you for a great recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
First, know that I don't like bananas. These muffins were out-of-this world! They were scrumptious! They turned out light and fluffy, even though I made a few changes. I used all white whole wheat flour, 2/3 cup sugar instead of 3/4, and instead of the 1/3 cup melted butter, I used 2 Tbsp. canola oil and 2 Tbsp. of fat free sour cream (4 Tbsp=1/4 cup). It turned out perfectly and I never would have guessed they were low-fat. A keeper for sure!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This was the best carrot cake I have ever had! It was so good! I made it into a lower-fat and calorie version by using 2/3 cup canola oil and the the rest of the 1 1/4 cups plain fat free yogurt. I also used 3 egg whites, 1 egg, 1 1/2 cups sugar; I made it healthier by using 2/3 white whole wheat flour and 1/3 all-purpose, and I increased the vanilla to a Tbsp. :) For the frosting, I used fat-free cream cheese, and since I didn't have the full 4 cups of powdered sugar, I used two. I drizzled the icing over the individual servings. It was so yummy. Thank you so much for this fantastic recipe!

Mother-In-Law Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
These deviled eggs were delicious. I would give them a 4 1/2 stars if possible. Instead of the hot mustard, I used honey mustard. It worked perfectly. I also left the pimento-stuffed green olives off because I didn't have them. I added Worcestershire sauce to the mix as well. Delicious!
