Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
My husband loved it, and I liked it even though I'm not a huge fan of ground beef. I used about 5 oz of cream cheese instead of 8oz. I also used lite sour cream and healthy request cream of mushroom soup. I will be making this again, although I may use only 4 oz of cream cheese next time. There's so much creaminess that cutting down on cream cheese doesn't make a huge difference, and it helps with the fat and calories too.

Maple-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
These were fantastic! My husband said this was the best pork chop I've ever made. I followed the directions exactly, except I used lite maple syrup and lite margarine. I was a little worried that I wouldn't like the glaze, especially after I tasted it. It had a very tangy taste I didn't care for. I was dead wrong. It tastes great on the pork chops. It's a wonderful combination, and I can't imagine how fantastic it would've been had I used real maple syrup. It's a litte bit of work, but worth it!

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
This was fantastic! I microwaved the sweet potatoes (mine took 12 minutes for two large potatoes) as suggested by another reviewer, which sped things up considerably. I sliced the apples thin and made sure I covered the pan, but they still took longer than suggested in the recipe (maybe 10 minutes). The recipe tasted great, but really didn't look appetizing. I was just cooking for myself and my husband, so I put our servings in ramekins, added brown sugar and walnuts to the top, and broiled until the sugar was carmalized. They were much prettier that way, and tasty! In the future I may reduce the sugar used (and my sugary topping) to make it healthier. I think you could reduce the sugar by at least half without doing major damage to the flavor. All in all, i think this is a fast, easy (especially if you microwave the sweet potatoes), healthier alternative to sweet potato casserole. We'll definitely be making this again!

Lunch Box Special

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This was okay. I prefer a peanut butter and banana sandwhich though. I didn't use the dates because I didn't have them on hand, and I ate it on toasted bread. The recipe doesn't keep well at all, so make sure you only make what you will eat in one sitting. I also couldn't really taste the apples much. I sliced them thin, so maybe next time I'll cut them in chunks. I'm unsure whether I'll try this again. It was a pain to get it to combine (the apples wouldn't mix in) and the flavor was good, but not worth the effort in my opinion.

Peas with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I thought it was okay, but my husband said it tasted like "dirt." I think it was the combination of the thyme with the peas, which we didn't like at all. Next time I'll make it without the thyme.

Holuski

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
Very good! I added some red pepper and lite sour cream to the top of mine and it was awesome! Without the sour cream it was kind of bland. I also didn't add any onions, b/c my husband hates them, and I used smart balance margarine instead of butter.

Chicken Wellington Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
Delicious! A lot better than I thought. I thought the cream cheese would be overpowering, but the mushrooms and crescent roll crust mellowed it a bit. Some Disclaimers: It's very rich, and you HAVE to love cream cheese or you will find it disgusting. Plus, it's definitely not diet food.

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This is a very sweet bar that is not for the faint of heart! They are VERY rich, but delicious. I took them to a party and they were a hit! I omitted the nuts because I didn't have any on hand...but I'm glad I did, b/c I'm not sure walnuts would have made them any better, although it may have negated some of the sweetness.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly as stated, except I did not use nuts, since I didn't have any. I thought the bread was really good, although my husband thought it was lacking flavor. My biggest criticisms is that it was every so slightly dry (60 minutes was a little too long in my oven) and the banana taste wasn't very strong. Next time I'll probably add some chocolate chips like the other reviewer, and maybe add a little extra banana.

Peach Crisp III

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
Very delicious! I cut down this recipe to two servings and put it in ramekins instead of a baking dish. I also used a combination of white and regular fresh peaches (highly recommended!) and didn't use nutmeg (since I didn't have any). I also put pecans on top, but next time I will mix them in with the granola and oats b/c some got a bit burned. Oh, and I also used low-fat granola and smart balance margarine, although you couldn't tell!

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
This was amazing. I wish I could eat it everyday! Be careful though because the sugar cookie is stickie. I put it between two piece of wax paper and rolled it with a rolling pin.

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Delicious! I couldn't find napa cabbage, so I used one of the premade cole slaw mixes from Whole Foods.

No Bake Cookies IV

I've tried lots of recipes like this and this is the best one. No problem getting the cookies to set, unlike other recipes. Delicious too!

Cheesy Pork Chops with Spicy Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
Delicious! The flavor was very good, and deserves 4 stars. I overcooked the apples and the pork chop was a bit tough, but I'll blame that on myself, not the recipe. I used a granny smith apple, white onion, and I cut the recipe down to 1 chop

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
I followed the recipe exactly although I used ground turkey instead of beef. Pretty good but not the best I've ever had. I do think the sauce would have went better with beef. But it still seemed to be missing something. Next time I will add the vinegar and worchestshire (sp?) per other reviewer suggestions. Also, I recommend covering the pan when you simmer, because it creates more liquid. I simmered for about 15 minutes with the lid on, and another 5 with it off and there was plenty of sauce

Banana Oat and Bran Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
Pretty tasty! I doubled the baking powder, wheat bran, and oats, and used a total of 1 and a half cups of flour. I also used egg beaters instead of egg whites and substituted walnuts for the raisins. The cookie turned out very firm and dense, with a muffin-like texture. I dropped them on the cookie sheet and they kept their shape in the oven. Next time I will probably only use one cup of flower, and see if I can't get a thinner, crispier cookie. Nice healthy snack, thanks!

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2004
These were great. I halved the recipe and used refried beans instead of pinto beans. It made about 12 large wraps. I mixed the refried beans with burrito seasoning before combining with other ingredients. Since many said these needed some spicing up, I also added some sliced jalapenos, which made it quite spicy. So spicy, in fact, I had to pick a few out. I like spice, but that was a little too much with the spice from the cheese, the tomatoes with chilis, and the burrito seasoning. I also used instant brown rice, which worked just as well as regular rice. I will definitely make these again!
