Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Very nice pasta dish. I added 2 chicken breasts, which I cooked by themselves and then added the pine nuts with only 2 tsp. of olive oil and 2 minced garlic cloves. I tossed this with 8 ounces of whole wheat spaghetti and then garnished with dried parsley and grated Parmesan.

Balsamic Strawberries

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
I made this with a bit less butter and used light butter. I also used real sugar. I really like balsamic and strawberries, but I don't think I like them enough together to make again. It did have a nice zip to it, though. I think I just like strawberries in the raw! :) Thanks.

Sesame Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This was great! This would be nice served chilled as well. I also didn't use as much oil and little more sugar. I also added some chopped water chestnuts for some crunch! Thanks for a great broccoli recipe!

This was great! I didn't use the rum, but I did use the liquer, and that was very nice. I also used light butter. I served it warm over vanilla ice cream...yummy! Winner with the hubby!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
Yummo! The texture and taste of these potatoes were great! I used 4 scallions instead of the onion, which caramelized nicely during cooking. I only had to cook them for 25 minutes, but that was because I cut them in smaller chunks (about 1/2 inch). Great recipe!

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
This was great! My husband loved the flavors. I roasted a chicken and added a few slices over the top of the risotto. I didn't have to use as much liquid as was called for, and I also used low-sodium broth and red onions and no butter. I also only used 1 tbl. of olive oil for the risotto. I used spray oil for the onions (to cut down on fat). The texture was creamy and wonderful. Also, I sprinkled dried thyme on top just before serving. Thanks for a great recipe!

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
This was an okay recipe. I made quite a few modifications, however: I added and/or used a 14 oz. can of white chicken (in place of beef), 3/4 c frozen corn, 1 tsp. cumin, 1/2 c black beans, green peppers, sliced carrots, 1 cup of water, omitted the tomato paste, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes and 1 10 oz. can Rotel tomatoes with green chiles. I cooked this all down with the pasta until it was relatively done, then I placed it in a 9 x 13 baking dish and baked @ 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I served it with cheese and sour cream. It's a good starter recipe.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
This was a nice soup. I did make some changes, however. I used only three leeks, 1/2 10 oz. pkg. of frozen spinach, and I added 2 cups of water. I also added a sliced carrot for color and texture. The flavors got better a few days later. I ate it for lunch for several days. It's a good starter soup recipe to add to.

Sweet Potato (Kumara) Wedges

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
These were pretty good. I think that you could use less flour. I enjoyed the paprika and mustard flavors together. I used 2 sweet potatoes and 2 parsnips, which worked nicely. The texture was nice, too.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
This was okay. I wasn't wowed by the flavor despite all that went into this dish. I did use lean ground turkey, so maybe that was the reason. It was a fun and messy dish, though. I served with jasmine rice and asian green beans.

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
This was a wonderful recipe. The flavor was wonderful. The only changes I made are as follows: boneless chops, 3/4 C chicken broth, 2 tbl. red wine (I didn't have any sherry), 1 tbl. olive oil and 1/2 tsp. dry rosemary. Now looking at the ingredients, I realized that I forgot the onions! That would have made it even better! I served it over rice, and the sauce was wonderful over it.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
These were great! I did make some modifications, however. I used ground turkey, no cheese, 1/4 C oats, 2 tbl. pl. breadcrumbs, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/2 C chopped onion. I also put these into 12 muffin tins. These were very moist, and the sauce is outstanding! When putting them in muffin tins, you can get away with about 3/4 of the sauce. Thanks Tonya!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This was a nice and easy recipe. I did add 1/2 packet of onion soup mix as one reviewer recommended. I also only used 3/4 C water and added a 1/2 tsp of cornstarch at the end to thicken the sauce. I also added about 1/2 lb of mushrooms. I served it over rice.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
I have to agree with other reviewers. My husband ate 1/2 dozen before I could get back to the kitchen to start the next batch! These are a definite crowd pleaser. The light and fluffy texture make people want to keep eating them. I took the rest to my bible study, and they were gone in a flash. I think I will try nuts and/or raisins in them the next time I make them. Thanks for a great recipe.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
My husband loved these. They turned out like nice little steaks. I did make a few changes to the marinade. I used 1/4 C soy sauce, 1/8 C orange juice and the juice of 1 1/2 lemons and the zest of one lemon. I kept all the other ingredients the same. Also, I used boneless pork chops, so I only cooked them for 15-20 minutes. Thanks for a good recipe!

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2005
This was a great recipe. However, I did make some changes. I added 4 small cloves of garlic, 1 whole (jarred) red pepper, and I only put in 1/4 cup of parmesan/romano cheese and 2 tbl of light mayo. Also, I put the onion, pepper and garlic in a food processor to chop very finely. Then I mixed all the remaining ingredients with the onion & pepper mixture. I think that made it nice and smooth. This was a huge hit!

Polenta with Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
This was great! I did make some changes, though. I used almost 7 cups of zuchinni and about 1 cup of jarred red peppers. Additionally, I roasted 4 cloves of garlic with the veggies for about 10 minutes and then took them out and put them through a garlic press and added it in with the basil/balsamic mixture. I also used 1/4 tsp. of pepper in the mixture. I also used sun-dried tomatoes to add a little something extra. Also, for fun, I grilled the polenta circles (which I only used 1 18 oz. tube)on a stovetop grill. The grill marks always add to the presentation and just sprinkled s & p to taste. Great vegetarian meal! Thanks!

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2005
This was a very nice chicken dish. The presentation was very nice. I did make some changes. I used only 1/4 C maple syrup, 1/2 lime, 1 tsp. dried rosemary and no olive oil or butter. I just used spray oil for the chicken. I also had to use about 1/2 tsp. of cornstarch mixed with a few tbl. of water to thicken the sauce before serving.

Carrots Au Gratin

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
This was great! I used the cornflakes and low-fat sharp cheddar and light margarine. Those were the only changes I made. It was a great change from the glazed carrots I normally make.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2005
These were great! I did make some modifications. I used quick oats and 1% milk with some vingegar to cut down the fat. Also, for ease, I let them soak while I was at work so they were ready to use when I got home. Also, I added 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. vanilla, and a 1/2 fresh peach diced small. I also only cooked them for 20 minutes. They rose very nicely, and they were light and fluffy. I got great reviews from my friends! Thanks for a great recipe that you can adjust and add different ingredients to create great muffins!
