Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Very good! I had left over taco meat so I used that with great results. I added more green pepper and used cooked quinoa instead of rice (no rice on hand). I also used salsa instead of chili sauce. This recipe is versatile and can easily be adjusted to suit a family's tastes.

Fat Free Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I know the recipe is fab as written; but I had to make adjustments based on what I had. I used dill reslish, some onion powder and a little sugar to soften the blow of the dill relish. I was actually shocked at how good it tasted. Thanks for the recipe.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
The whole family enjoyed this, including young kids. I sauteed the onion, a green pepper and some garlic first, then added a large bunch of fresh spinach. I used turkey kielbasa (sliced it up very small) and added a can of italian diced tomatoes (it's what I had). Excellent!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Excellent. A true gourmet carrot cake, dense, delicious and full of flavor. I did not make major changes, only alterations to make it a little more healthy (save a few fat grams when you're eating something so decadent). I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and replaced half the oil w/unsweetened applesauce. I also threw in some unsweetened coconut. The "Cream Cheese Frosting II" from this sight was perfect to frost the cake.

Zucchini-Coconut Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Thank you for a GREAT recipe! Looking for another recipe to use up the zucchini from my garden I gave this one a try. I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup greek yogurt in place of the margarine. I didn't have dates, so I used dried cranberries and I added 3/4 cup chocolate chips! Fabulous! I did NOT make the icing, the chocolate chips gave it the additional kick needed. I made a triple batch the first day and I'll be making more. Cut them and they freeze well.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
We loved this! I always alter recipes to be a little more healthy, thus I used whole wheat penne, chicken sausage, 1/2 the amount of mozzarella and cottage cheese instead of ricotta. One tip I picked up from another recipe is to blend an egg into the cottage cheese (used my stick blender for this) and I also added a box of frozen spinach (defrosted with water pushed out). I sprinkled the italian seasoning on top. Plenty of food, so the second half is in the freezer for another night.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Very Good, but a little too sweet as the recipe is written. I have made this twice and I like it better with about 2 T less honey. Also, I didn't have pecans so I used almonds instead and it was delicious. I also omitted the butter and used whole wheat bread crumbs. Thanks for a delicious recipe.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Fantastic! I didn't add the crushed red pepper flakes and the heat was just right. I also added some corn starch as other reviewers suggested. The recipe as written was perfect for one pound of ground beef.

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
This recipe made inexpensive chicken thighs taste amazing. I reduced the amount of chili powder a tad and I doubled the recipe to coat about 12 thighs. I also dipped the thighs in egg whites to help the crumbs stick. The spices stick to the thighs, but the crumbs didn't without dipping in egg first. Great flavor!

Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This soup has great flavor. I sauteed onion and garlic before adding the liquid. I also added three stalks of celery and 1/2 cup barley. This a great base you can add any veggie to, so be creative, clean out the fridge or freezer!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I met with my personal trainer Monday and we discussed two things: my sweet tooth and the need to incorporate more protein in my diet. Yay, this sweet treat does both! I upped the cocoa to 1/3 cup as others suggested and I added chopped walnuts to the top. There's still plenty of sugar in this brownie, but it tasted great and takes care of the sweet craving while providing more nutritional value than a typical brownie! Thanks for the recipe. My three kids love them, also!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I've made this three times and I suggest you DO NOT use 4 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder; use 3 teaspoons. I did some research and looked at other recipes and most recipes that don't use self-rising flour call for 1 teaspoon of baking powder for every 1 cup of flour. When I used 4 1/2 teaspoons the bread had a very distinct, bitter aftertaste. This is a great bread with the baking powder modification. Also, I pour 2 Tablespoons of melted butter on top 10 minutes before it's done baking.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I am NOT a cake decorator, I'm just looking for a great tasting, easy to use frosting so I can "pretend" I'm a decorator when I bust out my tools. I used half butter, half shortening and next time I think I'll use 3/4 butter and 1/4 shortening. I like the real butter flavor, but I know the shortening has better consistency. I did not add the salt since I used salted butter. I did not have heavy cream so I used half n half; it worked fine, but like I said, I'm NOT a cake decorator.

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Very, very good. I just sprinkled bread crumbs on top--no butter-- and it was still great. Thank you for a tasty way to use my garden surplus!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
You can easily double the amount of zucchini in this recipe, which you should do if you have more than you know what to do with! I reduced the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and used 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 oil instead of the entire amount of oil. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour and threw in a few more chocolate chips. This is a great recipe and we'll be pulling these muffins out of the freezer ALL winter.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
FAN-TAS-TIC. I added a 1/4 cup more sugar (based on some reviews stating it was "bitter"), used 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar, half whole wheat flour and 1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil. Also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla. What I especially love is that this just tastes like a truly decadent chocolate cake, not a cake with less oil AND vegetables! I also like that it doesn't have a strong spice flavor, as many zucchini cake recipes (containing cloves, etc.) tend to do. Perfect with a cream cheese frosting for my son's 2nd birthday!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Like so many other reviewers, I used 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. I also used 1/2 white flour and did a combination of whole wheat and oat flour for the other half. I added raisins and chocolate chips along with the walnuts. The one thing I tried and DO NOT recommend is using 1/2 the amount of sugar...it needed to be a little more sweet. Next time I will add more cinnamon, nutmeg and perhaps some cloves.

Tortellini Pesto Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Thank you for this delicious and versatile recipe. Like other reviewers, I began by not using the milk and mayo; however after trying the dressing I wanted to cut the vinegar flavor and I added 2-3 Tablespoons of light mayo and 2 Tablespoons of milk. I will add cherry tomatoes the next time I make this and a bit more broccoli.

Italian-Style Round Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This is very good, although I made just a couple changes: used 2 green peppers instead of 1, a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato paste at the end to add more tomato flavor, and some italian seasoning in addition to the basil and oregano. As another reviewer suggested, I added more water the first hour. Also, I may use a little less salt next time. The salt in the tomatoes and the salt in the flour mixture may have been too much. My three boys and husband loved this served over whole wheat maccaroni!

Cereal Treats II

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Cheerios and Cookie Crisp was a great combo. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla--but it HAS to be added after the butter and marshmallow mixture is melted.
