Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
If only I'd read the reviews beforehand. I too, thought 1/4 cup chili powder was excessive but against my better judgement I followed the recipe exactly. I wound up with a chili powder mess. What a disappointment.

Jamaican Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
This soup is incredible; tasty and easy to make. I used brown sugar instead of turbinado because it isn't available in the stores where I live. I used frozen spinach which is what I had on hand and it tasted just fine. I adjusted the heat a bit since I like my food spicy. This one is a keeper, even the boyfriend likes it.

A Jerky Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This recipe is perfect the way it is. I've even used it with turkey and it was still very juicy and tender. The spice and taste are awesome and my boyfriend loves it! Thanks for this great recipe, it's a keeper!

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
I was looking for a different way to prepare eggplant and this was certainly easy to prepare. I halved the oil for frying (just to cut back on fat) but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I did add some extra cayenne to turn up the heat but that's just personal taste. Thanks for the recipe Bonnie, this one's a keeper.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
This recipe is fantastic! Better than most Chinese dishes I've tried in a lot of restaurants. The recipe is extremely easy. The sauce thickens up nicely with the chicken. I did cut back on the peanuts, it was too "peanuty" for me otherwise. I served it with noodles and it was a huge hit with the gang. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Wow! I had never eaten quinoa before and since I am trying to eat healthier I thought I'd give this recipe a try. I subbed olive oil for butter as a healthier choice and did add more lemon at the end just because I love lemon. I also followed the advice of others and sautéed the onions and garlic first before adding the quinoa. I followed the rest of the recipe and it was amazing. Thanks Sal for such a great recipe I am hooked on quinoa now!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I would've given this recipe five stars but there was way too much salt for my liking. Afterwards I read some of the reviews and realized I wasn't alone in this. I wound up adding way more lemon than the recipe called for and actually added it to the bowl by mistake rather than at the end as per the recipe. The lemon tasted just fine and it was an excellent and different way to make broccoli, even my boyfriend loved it. It only took 10 minutes to roast in my oven. I'll definitely be making this again and again, thanks for the great recipe!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I followed the recipe making changes for ingredients I didn't have: dijon mustard for spicy brown and minced sweet pickles for sweet relish (which I haven't been able to find in Spain - sob!), and used low fat mayo for a lighter version. I used fresh chickpeas rather than canned but I'm sure canned would be good too. I put the chickpeas in my hand blender attachment for chopping and mixing. Transferred to a bowl then mixed in all the other ingredients. It's so simple, fast and tastes great. I usually serve it inside a pita with lettuce, tomato and such. Thank you so much for this recipe! It deserves more than 5 stars!

Arrabbiata Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Wow! This recipe is so easy and the ingredient amounts are perfect. The only thing I add more of is the wine (eyeball it) because it really gives the sauce a different flavour. I sometimes add spinach (frozen will do) and/or diced black olives near the end to vary the sauce. Thanks for such a great and low fat recipe Ellen!

Curried Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
This recipe is fantastic. It's fast, easy and delicious. I followed the recipe as written and it turned out perfectly. I used my hand blender once the soup had cooled a bit. I did follow the suggestion of another reviewer and added a dollop of (non-fat) sour cream in each bowl and it added a creamier texture to the soup. It's good as it is too. Thanks for such a quick and easy recipe!

Olive Oil Roasted Eggplant with Lemon

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This is amazing and so delicious! I decided to add a Thai spice blend to the olive oil (I eyeballed the amount) before brushing it on the eggplant for extra zip. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it is to die for, thanks so much Sandra!!

Spicy Indian Chicken and Mango Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
This recipe is amazing! The first time I followed the recipe exactly but I found the mango overwhelmed the coconut milk flavour and the spice was bland for my tastes. The next time I reduced the mangoes to 1 and added more spice: 1 tsp chili paste, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp garlic, 1 tsp fresh ginger, 1/2 tsp paprika. I also used half a can of coconut milk to reduce the fat the second time around. Thanks so much for such a wonderful and refreshing recipe!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
This is a fantastic rice recipe and so easy to make. After reading the reviews I followed the recipe exactly (except for using light coconut milk to cut back on fat) and it turned out great. I accompanied the rice with Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant (from this site) and the combination was fantastic. Thank you for such a great rice recipe!

African Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This recipe is worth every star, it's fast, easy and delicious. It's not as hot as other curries but it's easy enough to adjust if you want it hotter. I usually make it with a pound of shrimp. I added 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric and 1/4 tsp cumin. I also cut the coconut milk to half a can to get a thicker sauce and to cut back on the fat intake. I followed the cooking directions as written. Thanks Valerie for the great curry recipe.

Pineapple Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I made quite a few changes to this recipe using the suggestions from the reviews and here is what I finally came up with: I cooked the rice in 1 cup water and 1 cup pineapple juice. I added shrimp as well as ham. I used 1/2 tsp minced ginger and a few dashes of chinese 5 spice. Other vegetables that I add are green/red pepper, celery, carrots, zucchini, green beans, beans sprouts, basically whatever I have in the fridge. I made changes to the cooking method: I cut the pineapple into smaller chunks and added them to the wok first in order to brown them properly. Then added the vegetables and lastly, the egg. I also mixed in a bit of pineapple juice to the soy sauce. This is the only fried rice recipe I use now. Thanks so much for sharing.

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I tried the recipe as is but found the flavour to be pretty bland. After reading through other ratings I made the following changes: Subbed the stewed tomatoes with puréed. Added about about another cup of broth. Added 1/2 cup chopped carrots and 1/2 cup chopped celery. I also made the pasta separately and added to each bowl then poured the soup over it. I find the pasta tends to absorb a lot of the liquid if you add it to the pot.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
This recipe is fantastic just the way it is. Quick and easy. The only change I made was to skip the cilantro because I don't like the taste. Garnished with a bit of lime. Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Wow, this recipe is wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. The soy sauce was very subtle. I might try adding more as other reviewers suggested just to test out which way I prefer them.
