Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
This is a fabulous recipe!! I made these as gifts, together with rum balls and fudge, to give away at Christmas and everyone went crazy over them. It was everyone's favorite by far!! I used bite-size Snickers and Reeses Cups. Will definitely do these again next Christmas. Read the reviews, as they are a big help. Pay attention to tips on how to create the cookies once the dough has been refrigerated. It is also a good idea to use the extra flour and cocoa.

Cocoa Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
I made these for Christmas and they were a big hit!! The cocoa is a nice touch. I let mine marinate for 1 week. I think the longer they marinate, the better the taste.

Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2004
This recipe was alright, but there were a few things missing, I think. I added the soup before I added the dry ingredients to the skillet. I also threw in a can of mushrooms and a touch of water at this time. It turned out ok (my boyfriend LOVED it), but I thought it needed more. Next time I will add more salt and pepper and some chives!!

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
This recipe was pretty good, but the sauce ended up a little too thick by the time I added the parmesan cheese. I think next time I will add a little more cream. I served mine with pasta, too, and it was delicious.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
This soup is awesome!!! My boyfriend is a vegetarian and he absolutely loved it--I didn't even know I liked lentils.... I made a few changes though: I used 2 cans of vegetable broth and 4 cups of water instead of 8 cups of water. I also used a package of Italian style frozen vegetables and half a can of chopped spinach instead of fresh, and it still tasted fabulous and very flavorful. Will be making this one again.

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2004
These are wonderful! I made them for my vegetarian boyfriend this morning and he loved them--so did I! Since I'm a diet-freak, I made a few changes though: used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, used fat free half & half instead of buttermilk (could probably try fat free milk, too), used Splenda instead of sugar, just the egg whites, used Promise fat free margerine instead of butter, increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp., and increased the raisins to 1 cup. They turned out incredible!! I will definitely be making this one again. I had to add two more tablespoons of half & half, and made each pancake with 1/2 c. of batter. The bigger the better! Made about 8 pancakes that way. One should definitely give this recipe a shot.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2004
Man, this was so good!!! I made a few changes though: I used the cake mix recipe listed earlier in the reviews (only I substituted 1 c. of whole wheat flour for 1 c. of the all-purpose and used fat free margerine), used egg whites instead of the whole eggs, added 1 c. of raisins, and used fat free sour cream. I also halved the brown sugar mixture and glaze, to cut down on calories and sweetness. It came out terrific!! I will probably add nuts next time and make two layers of the brown suger mixture. I also used a bunt cake pan. Yummy

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
These bagels are awesome!!! I no longer buy store-bought bagels. I make low-calorie whole wheat cinnamon raisin bagels that are delicious. I simply sub the sugar with sugar substitute, use whole wheat flour instead of bread flour, and add 2 t. of cinnamon and 3/4 c. of raisins when making the dough. After they have been boiled I stick them right on a greased cookie sheet without the cornmeal or any other toppings and they turn out just awesome!! Once I used a dried fruit mixture (ie cranberries, blueberries) and it turned out wonderful, too. Great recipe!!

Jumbo Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
These are incredible cookies! My fiance and I eat them just about every night (yes, we bake a batch every weekend). To reduce calories, I use sugar substitute, reduced fat margerine, whole wheat flour and egg whites, and they always turn out delicous, or as my fiance says,"exquisite." Once you drop them on the cookie sheet, its good to flatten them a bit and give them a little shape, or else they turn out like bigs clumps of cookie (but still taste great of course).

Raita

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
This was pretty decent. I didn't use the sour cream and instead used 1.5 cups of plain yogurt. I also only used a dash of garlic, and added a small, diced red onion--good thing to add! It came out quite good, but I still felt like it was missing an ingredient, compared to my local (and incredible) Indian restaurant.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
These cookies are absolutely amazing!!! To make it a little more healthy I substituted with whole wheat flour, upped the pumpkin to 1.5 c., used 1/2c. brown sugar and 3/4 c. Splenda, and two egg whites. I didn't have any nutmeg so I substituted it with pumpkin spice, and it was delicious!!! I didn't use nuts this time, but I think I definitely will the next time--would be a great addition. This gets one big thumbs up!!!!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 5, 2004
These were amazing, we cooked them up for Cinco de Mayo, and my fiance won't stop talking about how good they were. I doubled the batch and made a few changes and added: 1/2 t. cumin and 1/2 t. chili powder, a can of diced green chiles, 2/3 c. frozen corn kernels, 8 oz. cream cheese, a can of Rotel diced tomatos and green chiles and upped the garlic to 3 t. I served them with shredded cheddar cheese and they were out of this world. The diced tomatos added moisture--I noticed people had complained about these being too dry. They turned out perfect! This one will be a regular at my house.

Raisin Bread II

Reviewed: May 5, 2004
I did not like this bread at all. I like big plump rasins in my raisin bread, and because this recipe said to just add them in the beginning and not at the "add ingredients" single, they were all chopped up. When done you can't even tell it has raisins in it, and you can barely taste them. It also needed more cinnamon, a bit of sugar, and less yeast--it tasted too yeasty and not like the typical raisin bread I'm used to. I will not be making this one again.

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2004
These were awesome. I used 1 c. of yogurt, and substituted with whole wheat flour. I also did not put any topping on them, and used all of the lemon zest and juice from a large lemon, and they were incredible. Great recipe! Will definitely become a regular at my house.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
This was wonderful!!! Very tastey indeed. I love ricotta with my lasagna, so I used it in the layering process and topped it with motzerella and parmesan, although I am sure motzerella and feta would be great too. It turned out awesome. I couldn't really see this recipe without the ricotta, as it really made it fantastic.

Hot or Cold Vegetable Frittata

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2005
This was pretty good! Make sure you use a good whole wheat bread, and cube your bread pretty small so it mixes in well with the whole recipe. My husband is a vegetarian, and he really enjoyed this. I used all reduced fat and fat free ingredients and it turned out splendid!

Crepes with Spinach, Bacon and Mushroom Filling

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
Crepes weren't bad, but I thought the egg sauce was horrible. I won't make this one again.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2005
This was a really good dish, my husband really loved it. I made a few small changes though. Because I am trying to watch my cheese intake, I substituted fat free ricotta cheese for the provolone, and it was awesome. I think ricotta really adds to this dish. Also, I used the advice of others and added some italian spices and some garlic to the sauce. This will be a regular in my house.

Cornbread Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2005
This was an excellent breakfast dish. Since my husband is a vegetarian, I used veggie sausage. Also, I substituted diced green chiles for the jalapenos, and used frozen corn kernels instead of the canned. This will be a common breakfast dish in my house. Yummy!
