B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
You have to make this smoothy recipe the way it is written. If you want to decrease the sugar that is fine. But to all of the reviewers that are decreasing the sugar and adding vanilla yogurt, they are actually adding more sugar than the original recipe. The whole point of this recipe is to get from the healthiness of the yogurt by adding something sweet(strawberries), without making it unhealthy like adding vanilla yogurt(which contains sooooo much sugar).

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Excellent...Excellent. My whole family loved it, including 5 children ranging from 2 to 8 years old. The key to making this successful is to puree only half of the soup. You want the texture of the vegetables, so nobody is thrown off by the baby food puree texture. But at the same time you want to blend the flavors of the sweet(sweet potato, carrots, and apples) and the spicy (ginger, chili powder, paprika, pepper)...I did change it a lil bit but using 1 sweet, and 1 reg potato......A dopple of yogurt on top is an added bonus, use yogurt folks, not sour cream. It does make a difference. I served this over white basmati rice, and a salad for a full meal.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
You don't understand, my husband and 4 boys, all under age 5, can't stand anything that even resembles anything healthy. But they sure did love these waffles, with no added powered sugar on top, nor any syrup. These waffles are absolutely delicious. I made two batches of these waffles, the first batch I made exactlly like the recipe called for. The second batch I made some slight changes: instead of the wheat germ, I replaced it with oatmeal, I replaced the white sugar for brown sugar, I added 1/2 cup of blueberries(thawed and drained), and added about 2 TB more of milk to make it thinner for easier pouring. And I didn't spray or add any oil to the waffle plate. This second batch didn't stick at all, and they tasted like gourmet restaurant waffles. Thank you for this healthy and delicious recipe.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
I have never felt sooo flattered in my life than when I made this cheesecake. I mean EVERYONE (30+ guest) was raving that it was starting to make me shy and uncomfortable around the other guest that cooked sweets also. At least 5 women came up to me and asked for the recipe. And for all the people that wrote negative reviews, I am dumbfounded at how they could not think this was the best cheesecake ever (not just my opionion but from 30+ other guest). They must have messed up the directions, ingredients, or something. I cooked it the same as the recipe but with slight modifications for my own taste. I used Martha Stewarts recipe for the crust which is 2 cups of crushed graham crackers, 6 TB sugar, 1/3 cup butter, and 1/4 ts cinnamon. Which there is more crust to press into the bottom and sides of the springform pan. ALSO:The key directions in order for it not to get cracks is to OIL the sides and the bottom of the pan well. I don't use the water bath method because for some reason or another the water always gets in my pan even w/the aluminum foil. I cook it for 1 hour and let it sit in the over for at least 5 hours, then put in frig and it comes out to be a pretty and prefect cheesecake. Thanks so much for making me look like a better cook than I really am :)

Cajun Style Blackened Snapper

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
Well I made this recipe twice, the first time it came out just alright, because I didn't use a cast-iron skillet, just a frying pan, and I had the heat on high. I think I burned the fish instead of blackening it. But it still tasted okay. The second time I did everything the same but I cooked it on a lower heat. It came out perfect!!! I substituted the cayenne pepper with red chili pepper instead so that it wouldn't be too spicy. My guest loved it even though my whole house was full of smoke, it was worth it.
