Hamburger Cheese Bake

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
This was fantastic! Of course, like so many others I modified the recipe. I sliced up 1 Italian sausage link and cooked it with the hamburger. I added 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning; I used 1/2 of 12oz can of tomato sauce and 1 12 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I added to eggs to the cottage cheese and sour cream and I left out the cream cheese, green onions and Parmesan cheese. My recipes makes 6 servings at 465 calories a serving. My husband and I just raved all weekend we loved it so much. One more thing, when you take it out of the oven (we baked it for 25 minutes) let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes -- the flavors meld and the taste is great.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
This is great tasting! I read a few of the reviews and the modifications the cooks made. I made only a few small modifications. I added 2 tablespoons of ketchup not one; I used a little smoked fontina cheese along with cheddar. I didn't peel the potatoes. I left the skins on so I would get more of the nutrients. When I make this again, I'm going to leave some of the water in the potatoes when I mash them. I did add a little milk to the potatoes because without it they wouldn't mash up as nicely. I think this dish is great and I'm so glad I made it. It is very economical. I'll have leftovers for a few days. Great comfort food.

Pineapple Cranberry Relish

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This was great. I did make a few changes to add extra flavor. I put in juice of 1/2 small lemon and juice of a small mandarin orange and I added some dried cranberries.. Without the added citrus the relish would have been good but not great.

Oat Bran Muffins

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
These were very good muffins. I made some modifications: I didn't have oat bran so I used oatmeal (which turned out well); I used whole wheat flour as others have mentioned they used; I used 3 tbsp. of coconut oil and instead of 1 cup of applesauce I used 1 1/2 apple/pear sauce. I also added cinnamon and vanilla. Finally I only used 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup splenda. Also I though 400 degrees was too hot so I cooked the muffins for 15 minutes at 375 which was plenty of time. I could have cooked for 12 or 13 minutes and that would have probably been sufficient. These muffins are going to be my healthy snacking/breakfast muffins.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This method is absolutely the best way to cook the roast. But I realized when I started cooking my rib roast today that the recipe doesn't say lid on or lid off. I used a roaster and put the lid on. Warning to everyone using this recipe. A lid on speeds up the cooking time. I am so glad I checked to see how things were going or I would have overcooked the beef. With a lid the meat does not need 3 hours of resting in the oven between the 1st and the 2nd baking. I had a 4.3 pound rib roast and the meat was well done. When I make rib roast again I think I'll cook for 1 hour and after 1 1/2 hours of rest, I'm going to open the oven and check on the meat. Nothing bad will happen to the meat if you open the door early. Some heat escapes but it will heat up again very quickly. I did put beef broth and water at the bottom of the pan and the gravy was out of this world crazy good.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
I love this dish! I made a few adjustments. I sautéed the cut up chicken in olive oil and added white wine. The chicken went into the pan, then the cooked vegetables, then the sauce. I added a bit of cream to the sauce and I also added poultry seasoning and some chili flakes. And finally, instead of pie crust I put the entire mixture in a baking dish and then added film dough on top, brushed it with olive oil and baked it for 25 minutes. The dish has a bit less calories b/c of less dough. My husband loves it.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Very good! My boyfriend acted shocked and said "this is good". I made a few changes. I added bell pepper along with peas. I only used one can of soup and instead of mushroom, I used cream of celery. And then I added 3/4 cup of milk. Also, I used whole grain spaghetti and croutons on top.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Fabulous and oh so easy to make. I had some home made pasta sauce in the freezer so I used that, I only used 1/4 cup of onion and I added 1 green bell pepper but also added about 1/4 cup of red bell pepper. I also added about 1/4 cup of red wine and 1/4 cup of beef broth. And finally I added red pepper flakes. My boyfriend and I ate with pasta. I can't wait to make this again. The sausages were so very tender.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
The pie was easy to make and tasted good. I didn't use apple juice concentrate, I used fresh apple juice. Also, I put in some lemon juice to tart it up a bit. I also added a little splenda for a little extra sweetness without the calories. And I decided to experiment and added 2 nectarines. I liked it and would make it again.
