Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I used baked sweet potatoes, decreased the amount of honey, and ended up adding a little salt as it was still too sweet. It turned out ok but not something I'd make again - the flavors just didn't work well together for us. Thanks anyway.

Chicken Eugene

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
The only change I made was to pound the chicken breasts flat, place two or three slices of dried beef on the chicken, roll it up, then wrap in bacon. I then poured a mixture of FF sour cream and low-sodium CoMushroom soup over the top. This was a rich and satisfying meal - served it with steamed broccoli and buttered baby potatoes. Thanks!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I omitted the rosemary as a) I'm not a huge fan, and b) I didn't want to buy an entire package when I was only using it for one recipe. Even without the rosemary, the meat turned out amazingly tasty and flavorful. I marinated the chicken for about 24 hours, threaded the cubes onto skewers, and cooked it on my Foreman grill. I served it in warm pitas with lettuce, tomato and onion, with a little more Ranch dressing. Absolutely delicious!! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks so much, Theresa!

The Best Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I don't want to even think about how many of these I ate... The only change I made was to lightly sprinkle the mushrooms with a mixture of breadcrumbs and Parmesan. These were absolutely delicious! Thanks so much, Leslie!

Tequila Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I halved the amount of cayenne pepper, and it was still a bit too spicy for my wimpy taste buds. The flavor, however, was fantastic - I marinated the steak for about 10 hours, and it was perfect. This would work great with chicken too, maybe as a kabob marinade. Thanks!

Goat Cheese Arugula Pizza - No Red Sauce!

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I admit that I'm a pepperoni and mushroom pizza kinda girl, but even I thought this was pretty darn good. Apart from using sliced grape tomatoes, and also adding a little cracked black pepper, I made this as written - not bad at all! I still prefer a red sauce base, but this was really nice for a change. Thanks!

Onion Dijon Crusted Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
Like others, I cut back on the onion, but the recipe still didn't impress us unfortunately. I think it might work better with tilapia. Thanks anyway.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I read through all the reviews for ideas on how to improve the recipe. This is what I did: Used 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 AP flour; 1/2 melted butter, 1/2 olive oil; 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar; added a good glug of vanilla extract, and a handful of walnut pieces. The recipe made 12 large muffins which I baked at 395f for about 22mins. Next time, I'll add more peaches and walnuts. Thanks!

Tuscan Bean 'Goppel'

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
The only recipe change I made was to use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I let the simmered mixture cool before adding the feta and cilantro. This was a light but really filling lunch (had it with a slice of crusty bread). Thanks, ScooterMom!

Cuban Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I made this with a pork tenderloin. I also used a carton of beef broth instead of water, to which I added some Chipotle powder and Adobo seasoning as well as the garlic etc. We had it in flour tortillas with the usual fixings (lettuce, sour cream etc etc). This was easy to make and was so tasty! Thanks!

Sole In Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I have no idea what I did wrong (maybe my taste buds are on the fritz due to the fact I'm preg) but I didn't like the butter sauce at all. No matter how much I played around with it, it was horribly salty, acidic and sour. I ended up using a slotted spoon to scoop up the minced garlic, and topped the fish with that. Oh well, thanks anyway!

Montana Tonic

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I am completely addicted to this stuff! I make it with raspberry zinger teabags. Like the previous reviewer notes, this is a super refreshing drink that is neither overly-sweet nor super fizzy. I usually just chill it in the fridge and omit the ice cubes. I seriously cannot get enough of it. Thanks so much!

Marinated Chicken Pita Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I woke up craving chicken shawarma for lunch, and this recipe fit the bill! I sliced the chicken breast thinly, and marinated it for about five hours (cut back on the olive oil). Served it in a pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce. Fantastic flavor! Totally hit the spot. Thanks!

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I've had this recipe bookmarked for AGES - I'm kicking myself that I didn't make it sooner. I had to make a couple of changes due to what was on hand - I used sesame oil instead of sesame seeds and canola oil; I didn't have molasses and couldn't find my teriyaki, so I added a small squirt of hoisin sauce. I marinated the skinless drumsticks for 6ish hours, turning roughly every 30 mins. The meat was a touch dry (my fault - I baked them too long) but so unbelievably flavorful! I served them with sweet potato fries and homemade mac n cheese. Fantastic. Thanks!

Skrie Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
As written, the flavors are SO subtle they are almost non-existent. I made the sauce with fresh mint (used a small-ish bunch that I removed after it had wilted down), and also added some lemon zest to the lemon butter. I brushed the cooked salmon with some reserved anise sauce before drizzling the lemon butter over the top. This turned out ok but it was rather a lot of work for pretty mediocre results. Oh well. Thanks anyway!

California Fusion Peach Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This was SO good! I made it with fresh peaches that were super sweet and juicy. The only garlic chile paste I had was garlic sriracha, but it worked perfectly. I've served it over plain grilled chicken breasts and also grilled ahi tuna steaks. Delicious! Thanks so much!

Jalepeno Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I made it with half mayo and half sour cream. I also doubled the amount of jalepenos. It was too spicy for me but Husband loved it. Next time I'll omit the olives and add some green onion instead. Not bad. Thanks!

Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Because of the comments about the mixture being too wet, I cut back on the BBQ sauce, and partially drained the canned tomatoes. Apart from adding a little salt and pepper, I made it as written. The result was a very bland, crumbly loaf with an uneven, mushy texture. I won't be making this again. Thanks anyway.

Che Guevara's Ceviche

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
You can't beat a good ceviche on a hot summer's day! I made this with cod and uncooked shrimp. I followed others' advice and drained the lime juice from the fish before stirring in the other ingredients. I added a little bit of V8 juice to the mix, and also ended up sprinkling a little more cilantro on top. Husband said it needed some hot sauce but, otherwise, we both really enjoyed it. Thanks, Stalin!

Easy Lamb Shawarma

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I made this with lamb stew meat which I threaded onto skewers then marinated in the yog/vinegar etc for about 36 hours. Cooked the kabobs on the Foreman grill which avoided the unappetizing "boiled meat" appearance another reviewer mentioned. Served it in pitas with tomato, onion and a garlicky tzatziki sauce - SO much flavor, and super tender too! Nice recipe. Thanks!
