Fast and Easy French Onion Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
I took the advice of leaving out the green onion, minced onion, salt, and pepper. So I just used the nonfat sour cream, light mayonnaise, and onion soup mix (I used Wyler's), and it turned out great! I love it so much better than any store bought dip, and it is really low in fat! I gave this 4 stars just because of the changes in the recipe. This is a new favorite. Thanks for sharing!

Thai Style BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
This was very tasty! I used about half the ginger and I think it wasn't too overpowering. I grilled the chicken on my George Foreman grill and served with brown rice. I will definitely make this again.

Florentine Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
This is a wonderful soup! Half the package of spinach is the right amount for me. It tastes great with about half a pound of cooked pasta shells too. Very tasty and healthy!

Oriental Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
This was a nice change of pace from regular old green beans. I served this with Thai Style Chicken Pasta (from this site) which made for a nice spicy meal. I didn't use the oyster sauce and I used frozen chopped green beans, but it still turned out great. I will make this again.

Thai Style Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
I thought this was very spicy but not very flavorful, but my boyfriend, who likes very spicy foods, really loved it. I would make this again, but maybe try adding some vegetables to give it some flavor. I served it with Oriental Green Bean Salad (from this site) which was a nice complement to this dish.

Cajun Style Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
This was a hit! It wasn't what I thought it would be because I don't think the corn was the major player in this soup, but it was delightful nonetheless! I use a bit extra tomato paste and I put some beef boullion in with the water to give it some extra flavor. I will make this again and again! Yum!

Cranberry Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
I was unsure about how this pie would turn out, but it turned out better tasting than I expected. However, it wasn't very pretty looking, very sloppy and messy. I used a ready made graham cracker crust and I used OJ instead of water in the cranberry mixture, as another poster suggested. I let it chill for hours, but it just never got firm enough to support the weight of the cranberry mixture. Despite its messiness, it was very tasty, so maybe I'll try it again.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
This recipe is amazing! The four of us ate all 3 pounds of shrimp and probably could have eaten more! I usd a combo of red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar, but otherwise followed the recipe. I made extra marinade to baste the shrimp while on the grill. I will defintely make this again and again!

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I find that this is way too much Cheddar cheese, and I often omit the pecans. But I just adore this cheese ball! It is always a hit at parties, and there's usually leftovers that are a great snack later on!

Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
My first quiche was a success! I used a ready made crust and I omitted the mushrooms (don't like them) and it turned out great! I used finely chopped deli honey ham, frozen spinach and low-fat half-and-half because I had them on hand. My boyfriend even liked it and took the leftovers to work today! Next time, I'll try some bacon or broccoli. What a great dish!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This was very good and healthy! I used frozen spinach and added a can of stewed tomatoes and some oregano. Also, I didn't have any orzo on hand, so I served this over couscous. I already have requests for the recipe!

Lime Chicken Picante

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
This was very tasty! I marinated the chicken breasts for a few hours. I also skipped making the sauce out of the extra marinade. I just sauted the chicken and then topped it with some salsa (Chi-Chi's medium is what I used). My boyfriend and I thought it was delicious!

Kicky Steak Strips with Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
Magnificent! I made a few small changes - I used Dijon mustard because I had it on hand and I added a red and a green pepper with the onions and garlic. I also marinaded the meat for a few hours. It turned out great! This is one of my new favorite meals. Easy and delicious!

Very tasty! I put it in the freezer immediately from the oven, and I even left it there overnight and it stayed very moist.

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Very good! My husband was nutso for this sauce! I don't think it's bland, but it is sweet, which is what we like. I added more garlic powder, some oregano, and some Tabasco to jazz it up a bit and it came out great! I was a little apprehensive about the celery, but it cooked down and provided a little crunch without being overpowering. I will definitely make this again!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
This salad was divine! I cut back on the sugar a little bit, as was suggested, and toasted the almonds and the sesame seeds on the stovetop. Just simply amazing! My mouth waters just thinking about it!

Classic Greek Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
My boyfriend and I are not spinach lovers so we weren't expecting much from this dish, but we were pleasantly surprised. Following the advice of others, I cut way down on the oil (I only used about a tablespoon), but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I must say that it tastes better than it looks, but not that much better. We thought this was pretty bland, but the healthiness made up for the lack of taste. Any way to get us to eat our dark leafy greens is ok by me. Overall, I gave this four stars and I will probably make it again.
