Rhubarb-Raspberry Crunch

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
Modified the recipe for my lifestyle as follows: 1/4 c sugar, 3/8 c splenda, 3 T corn starch and 6 oz (1 1/2 c raspberries) for the rhubarb/raspberry filling. Used 1/4 c each brown sugar, whole wheat flour, oats and butter. Baked in a 9x9 square pan. I would make it again with these changes.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
Modified recipe to fit with my diet. Added garlic, fresh oregano and basil, and a few red pepper flakes. Eliminated butter, flour salt and sugar. I used Black Krim garden tomatoes. Thickened with 1 T corn starch. Used stick blender to blend up seeds and peels. Nice rustic soup. Oh, added a small amount of chicken base. Put the cloves in a tea strainer, as others have. Ate with garlic french bread. Thanks for a great recipe.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
I used a smoked ham shank instead of hocks, because they have less fat. Added additional lean ham. Used regular garlic cloves, and no salt of any type. Had zucchini and carrot that needed to be used up, so I threw them in as well. Added a couple tablespoons of chia seeds, as that is my new thing. Did this over the stove, because I ran out of time. Delicious. Comfort food at its best!

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
Used the basic idea of the recipe, but changed it up. Sauteed CHOPPED onion, carrot, garlic, mushrooms, chickpeas, and zucchini insides. I didn't want the seasonings, as I've recently had a meal with those same seasonings. Decided to add some moisture and flavor by adding into the saute 1/2 water plus a scoop of chicken bouillon. Microwaved the hollowed squash and chopped potatoes (6 min each) in the microwave so I would have a head start on the cook process. Placed stuffed zucchini (with chopped potatoes around the sides with a little lemon pepper seasoning on them) in a covered dish and cooked 30 minutes. The stuffing held together and everything was nicely done. It was a tasty meal in one dish. When I am not burnt out on the recipe spices, I will try them. Fabulous meal that really hit the spot!

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
When you have had the real peanut sauce that goes with satay, this was an incredible disappointment. At least to me, this tastes nothing like that. I'm glad I tried the sauce before applying it to the chicken.

Farfalle with Ham and Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Used this as a base to clean up vegetables that needed to be used. Also added diced onion, frozen peas, mushrooms, fresh garlic, and a couple slices of cheddar cheese. Sprinkled garlic herb seasoning on it as well. Versatile recipe.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
I changed this recipe quite a bit to accommodate my low sugar/fat diet. I wanted more of a fluffy pancake, so decreased the eggs by 1 (would just use 2 next time) and added 2/3 c flour. Used splenda instead of sugar. Only 1 T butter in batter and Pam in the skillet. Used Winesap apples, so didn't added any to them. Cooked them in the microwave first, then into the skillet. One T Splenda on top of the whole shebang and baked. I'm still going to look for a more cakey apple pancake recipe though.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
I made some changes to reduce the calories. Sautaed the vegetables in a spray of EVOO. Added chicken tenders and browned. Eliminated the salt. Used water. Removed the chicken after it was done and shredded. Added 2T flour to some cooled stock and shook. Didn't want to use the butter to make a rue. Brought up the temp and added the dumplings. After the dumplings were done, I added back the chicken. Added dry garlic to the dumpling flour. Great satisfying dish and lower calories sans butter.

Healthier Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I changed the recipe to suit what i had on hand. I used ground beef. I added the noodles to the pan and just added extra beef broth and cooked until done. I liked using one pot to complete the meal.

Healthier Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I put all the wet ingredients into a bowl, then added the bread. That way I could really make sure it was moistened without slopping it all over the place. I added more apple (with the skins on) and ground nutmeg. I upped the sweetner to 3/4 cup, which was too much because I used the raisins. I think when I make it again, I might add some nuts. Overall, I really enjoyed this. I didn't use a water bath, because I forgot. It still came out fine as far as I could tell.

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
Loved this, although for me the baking time was way off. I baked 15 min and it was too long. Made some changes as others suggested. Used 1/2 t salt, 1/2 t Old Bay seasoning (would increase next time), one beaten egg w 1 t water, and probably about 1 1/3 c sweetened coconut (whirled in the food processor). Oh, I also baked them on a cookie cooling rack, so both sides would brown. Should have also sprayed the rack with Pam. Sprayed the top of the shrimp though and they browned.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Decided to make it as a one skillet meal. Ended up using about 1/4 t of both cinnamon and cloves. Didn't really taste a "pinch" before. Cut way back on ground peppers, as I'm a pansy. Probably used closer to 3/4 c liquid - 1/2 water, 1/2 wine. Cubed 4 small red potatoes and cooked it all together. No layering and no hot oven. Nice taste.

Pretzel Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
I thought these were better than store bought. I made 8 rolls. I think if I wanted them for sandwiches I would only make 4. If I were to make again, I would use 2 qts water and 1/2 c baking soda. I didn't need the whole solution. I didn't put any salt on the outside, as with 2 t salt in the recipe I was sure they would be salty enough. I was right.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Okay, I am admitting right up front I altered the recipe based upon my tastes and what I had on hand that needed to be used up. The parts I changed are: used 1/2 packet of dry italian dressing mix to season the raw chicken, substituted mushrooms and spaghetti squash for artichokes and pasta, eliminated lemon juice. The feta I bought was kind of tart, so I didn't want any more with the lemon juice. I added capers, because I love them. Used the rest of the recipe ingredients. I enjoyed the results.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
Quinoa was a little bitter, I'm not sure why. Used as a side dish with lemon pepper talapia. Thought I would prefer it hot vs cold.
