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.

Bird Seed Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
After a few modifications, this was amazing! I happened to have all this stuff on hand and I wanted to use it up so I tried this recipe. I added peanuts to the dry ingredients and the chocolate powder went into the wet ingredients, as suggested by another reviewer. I thought that the wet ingredients were not wet enough, so I also added 3 tbsp of butter. I originally tried pouring the wet ingredients on top of the dry ingredients, as written the recipe. However, they would not seep down (wet ingredients still too thick), so I ended up just mixing them in. I'm so glad I did; it was not crumbly at all, and it was delicious. I'll definitely be making this again, with the modifications as described.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This was FANTASTIC! I know this will become a regular in my house - and I will probably always make potato soup like this from now on. It turns out to be the perfect consistency. I made some small changes. I omitted the celery (had none) and added celery seed instead. I added the bouillon at the very beginning and used 1 cup half and half in place of 1 cup of the milk. Yum! Next time I'll double it.

Penne Pasta with Cannellini Beans and Escarole

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Unfortunately, we didn't like this so much. It really didn't have much flavor - it just tasted like beans and escarole. I shouldn't have been surprised given so few ingredients, but I did add red pepper and some parmesan cheese and it was still pretty bland, although the red pepper did help. Usually we take leftovers to work, but we threw this out.

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.

Tzatziki I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
The flavor of this was very good, but the texture could be better; it was very thin after I processed it. My boyfriend, who used to work in a greek restaurant suggested that using a food processor might be making it thin. Next time I'll try hand whisking the oil and vinegar/lemon juice together before whisking in the yogurt and cucumber.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This was delicious, and the meat was really tender. I'll be making this all the time for now on. I did dredge the beef in flour before cooking in the oil, and I also added some flour in with the water/boullion mixture (putting it in a jar and shaking, as some reviewer suggested). It was thick enough for us at the end, so I didn't use the cornstarch.

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.

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!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
I halved the vinegar because I knew it would be too much and and my boyfriend still could not eat it. I thought it was good, hence the two stars. As written (4tbsp vinegar) this would be inedible to us. Sorry!

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This was great! We had them on onion buns with tzatziki sauce and feta (i added homegrown tomatoes and basil, yum!). I used oregano rather than savory. I made the mistake of chopping rather than grating the onions - it made it difficult to incorporate the onions into the hamburgers. I won't do that next time! Also, a garlic press would've helped too.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This was absolutely delicious, even better than I expected. I had a bunch of fresh blueberries from my share so I added layer of Blueberry Breakfast Sauce from this site to the filling. I halved the recipe, using only one can of crescent dough and 3/4 package of cream cheese; and there was plenty of filling. I didn't bother with the topping because this was just for me and my boyfriend, and the danish was great (and sweet enough) as is. I loved this and I know I will make it again and again! I might even try making individual blueberry and cream cheese danishes using the method suggested by other reviewers. Natalie thanks for posting this!

Elegant Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
This was good, but not great. I made it in the crockpot, which I probably wouldn't do again. The crockpot made the prunes and apricots mushy, and the pork, while moist, shredded easily and thus I ended up with kind of a shredded pork in a mushy sauce. I served it over rice with some vegetables, and while it was decent, I probably won't make again.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Unbelievably tasty and pretty healthy too! I realized at the last second that I was out of chicken boullion, but it still turned out great without it. I also did not add the sour cream, and next time I won't use the whole tomatoes - I don't see the point of them really. I made a huge batch and froze it in individual containers to bring to work, and it works out great! I just take each portion out of the freezer a night or two before and stick it in the refrigerator...an easy and healthy workday lunch! If I want to indulge a little, I throw some sour cream, cheddar cheese, and crushed fritos on top. I'm so glad I found this recipe! Thanks!!!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
This salad is amazing! I almost didn't carmelize the pecans because I thought it might be too sweet, but I'm glad I did because it was perfect. I'm already looking forward to eating the salad for lunch tomorrow.

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This was fantastic. I added a layer of this to the Easy Cream Cheese Danish recipe on this site and it was incredible. I used fresh blueberries. I still have plenty left over and I look forward to using it in my yogurt and pancakes.
