Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I have made these several times and they have been perfect everytime with some little adjustments. I double the worcestershire sauce, add garlic with the onions, put the cheese on top of the stuffed peppers, and use tomato paste instead of soup with about a tablespoon of lemon juice. Fabulous comfort food and very healthy! Note: I have also used both ground chicken and turkey and also had great results.

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This soup is wonderful. I left out the butter, as suggested by another member and added a little olive oil. I would suggest adding more garlic, I love garlic and feel the recipe needs more. Otherwise this is fantastic! I will make it again! Okay, I have made this soup about 5 times. This last time was the best! I used baby carrots and omitted all butter and oil. I doubled the garlic and used chicken broth powder. It was AMAZING! also, try sprinkling chives ontop, yum!!!

Tuna Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
I changed lots of things in this recipe, and loved it! First, I sauteed one onion and 4 garlic cloves on a pot. I added one large green pepper, a stalk of celery, and a can of tomatoes. To this I added 3/4 cup of rice, and one cup of water. i added two cans of tuna to the mixture. I added a dash of mustard seed, some thyme, some basil, and ground pepper. I let everything simmer for about 40 mins, untill it not longer looked like soup. I served it in a pasta bowl, sprinkled with ground pepper to taste, and salt, and shredded old cheddar cheese. YUM!!! just remember you need lots of pepper!

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
To be honest, I can't really review this recipe since I changed it so much. I made it in a crock pot and simmered. I used about 6 cups of unsweetened apple cider, a teaspoon of cinnamon, no allspice, two slices of clementines, a teaspoon of maple syrup, 8 cloves, about 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest, and 8 cranberries. It smells and tastes delicious!

Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Great recipe! I melted the butter and mixed it with 1 teaspoon of vanilla and drizzled it over the layered apples. Also, I used a 10 inch ceramic pie plate, so I cooked the pie for 10 minutes at 450 then for about an hour at 350 and it came out perfect!

Brandy or Rum Balls

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
Sorry to spoil the ratings, these looked great but come out very greasy. After doing some research it seems there are two types of Vanilla Wafers - the round plain cookie and the sandwich wafer. I used a box marked "vanilla wafers" although they were the sandwich cookies. Hmmm... I think there needs to be some clarification in the recipe. I am new to Rum/Brandy Balls. I will try the other kind of wafer next time. :(

Mediterranean Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
This was amazing... I repeat, Amazing!!! I served it with "Roasted Garlic and Asparagus" (also found on this site) Yum! I cannot explain how incredible these were together. I would suggest serving them with wild rice or fresh bagette with oil and balsamic vinegar on the side. I used chicken breasts and sliced them in thin strips and drizzled the sauce overtop. The meal was very easy and looked and tasted like something from a fancy restaurant. I highly recommend this! Thank you Leah!

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
For being low fat these are delicious! i didnt have apple sauce, so I used 1.1% yogurt, I substituted soymilk for the milk, and added cinnamon. I ran out of vanilla, so I used almond extract. I like a crunchy topping, therefore I mixed afew crushed walnuts, just right cereal, and brown sugar. Delicious! BTW, these need 25 mins in the over... and i would recommend not using liners.. i should have read the reviews before i baked them.

Can't Tell They're Low-fat Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
These are really yummy! As suggested, I used 1/4 whole wheat flour and 1/4 white flour. I started with 3/4 of a cup of sugar, but the batter wasn't sweet enough for brownies, at least in my opinion, so I added another 1/4 cup of sugar to equal 1 cup. I also used apple sauce, 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of salt. I baked them in a glass pan for 33 mins. YUM!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
My first time making waffles from scratch. Very easy, but the cooking time took a little practice. I made some without the cinnamon and added blueberrues, delicious! Later, I added a tsp of cinnamon. Fabulous aswell! Thanks for a great recipe!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
This was my first time making tortillas. Maybe I am just used to the store bought type, but I found these very bland and they took hours to make. For I will admit the recipe produced a dough that was easy to roll out into very thin tortillas. I think they need more flavour. For the time and effort, I will just keep buying tortillas. This recipe made 30 - 8 inch tortillas. At least I got a great workout!

Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2004
I used this recipe to make a stir-fry. It was fabulous! I used onion, celery, carrots, yellow, red, orange peppers, snow peas, broccoli, and green zucchini. I first cooked the chicken, removed it from the pan, and placed the cooked chicken in the sauce to marinate. I then cooked the veggies, re-added the cooked chicken in sauce, simmered for about 5 minutes. Next, I added cooked pasta and let it all simmer an additional 5 minutes. I served it sprinkled with parmesan and pepper to taste! Fabulous! I guess I could call it “Lime Garlic Chicken Parmesan Stir-fry”! Thanks for the amazing sauce!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
These are delicious! As recommended, I added 1/2 cup more of Oatmeal. Also, I substituted whole wheat flour and about 2 tablespoons of bran for the white flour. Normally I would use ground flax for a nutty flavour, but I was out. I didn't have walnuts, so I ground about 1/4 cup of roasted almonds and toasted 1 cup of coconut. I used about 1 1/4 cup of Hersey dark chocolate chips and threw in a handful of raisins. I was thinking these would be amazing with dried cherries. Next time I will cut down the salt and add walnuts instead. Thanks!
