Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2014
I was missing many ingredients and they were still good. I had only white flour and sugar and 1percent milk. I did add some nutmeg and my son and mom loved them. I used 1cup of oatmeal because I didn't have wheat germ or bran.

Basa Fillets in Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
I already had cooked rice on hand so this review is for the fish. I had catfish fillets which worked well and I had a green tomatillo salsa that I used with a few dashes of El Pato jalapeno sauce for a kick. So my recipe was quite simplified but I think very yummy. My husband was skeptical because he only likes catfish after it has been breaded, but he said it was good. I still think there could've been a few more flavors???

Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
After reading other reviews I only used 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup of sugar. I added 1 tsp of vanilla. I also substituted 1/2 of whole wheat flour and 1/2 white. Tasted yummy to me and my mom and son really liked it. I think 1/2 cup of butter would've been way too much. Next time I will add more fruit. I was pressed for time so I threw my butter in the pan and put it in the oven while it was pre-heating. I put the dough in the oven to start cooking while I prepared the strawberries. I was able to take it out after 30 min. and take it with me. Will use again. Thanks.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
The consistency probably would've been perfect if I had used the 5 cups, perhaps 4.5. I ran out of powdered sugar and iced my bottom layer and had to go out for more because 3.5 cups was not enough to make it thick enough. Delicious tasting. I used the yellow cake recipe from an old Betty Crocker cookbook and added lemon zest and juice per their directions. My cake cooked too long and I ended up using a simple syrup with raspberry jam over my leveled off sides to moisten it. One of my better cakes I believe and everyone liked it.

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
This was my first time using lentils and I really enjoyed it. I'm on vacation and had no cumin or lively spices so this might be 5 stars if I had the right spices. As some others suggested I threw in what I had in fridge; 1 celery stalk, 1 carrot, and some squash. I soaked the lentils in a pot of water while we were gone and used fresh spinach. I served it over rice and it was quite filling. My husband said it needed more salt, but I don't trust his opinion in that area. I look forward to trying this again with more spices.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Used some other reviewers suggestions such as using a can of beans for protein and 1/4 tsp. of cumin and garlic sautéed with the onion. I will try with some more spices next time. I used a wild rice blend. I was quite hungry and thought the peppers looked pretty cooked at 22 min. so I put some cheese (soy cheese for hubby and I) on, turned the oven off and let it set in the warm oven for several minutes. The peppers turned out to be a bit crispy still which didn't bother me, but I'm guessing they could've used some more cook time. This is a keeper.

Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I had to modify this because of some dietary restrictions so some of the other suggestions were helpful. I had never heard of salting the slices, but tried it even though I only had 15 min. to let them sit. I couldn't use egg or bread crumbs; I just drizzled the slices with olive oil and sprinkled them with Italian seasoning. I baked 14 min. then turned them over. I roasted 2 cloves of chopped garlic with onion slices then 7 min. after flipping placed tomato slices, tofu mozzarella cheese, then topped with the onion/garlic. Delicious!

Indian Peanut Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
We are avoiding sugar for 3 weeks so I threw about half a cup of raw peanuts in our bullet and used that instead of peanut butter. I used about 1 T fresh ginger and 1.5 tsp of powdered ginger. This was very delicious and we put it all over some spinach as someone else suggested. It was not too spicy at all; I would probably add a little bit more the next time.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Quick and easy. For years I thought a really hated this veggie after being served mushy concoctions when I was young. I think I've only bought it once as an adult because of the trauma. My husband brings it home and I still cringe a bit, but this was tasty and the asparagus was nice a firm.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Very tasty, will keep for the future. Lot of prep work in chopping which I am very slow at. Since I think we have some extra spicy cayenne in our house I only used 2 tsp. I also got the salt back to 1 Tbsp. This was the first time I had a bad reaction to the cayenne floating around so I will be buying some normal pepper soon. We cooked the fish for about 3 min per side on a grill pan on the stove top. I should've turned on the fan before I put the fish on because the cayenne pepper had us all coughing. I didn't have red pepper, so I substituted with green. We had lots of jicama which I normally don't eat, but in the salsa it was really good. I didn't use any sour cream since I didn't have any, but it was still very good.

Beef Taco Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I have a made a variation of this twice and it was well-liked by the family. I heeded other's suggestions of adding some spice-cumin and chili powder and I also added some beans-black the first time, kidney the second time and threw in some frozen corn. I don't have tomato soup on hand so I blended a can of stewed tomatoes and this time some leftover tomato based chased with some leftover chicken broth. This time I threw in the remainder of some olives. I can't seem to used up more than about 4 corn tortillas before it seems like too much. I just sprinkled about 1/2 a cup of 2% Mexican blend cheese. I also haven't had any salsa on hand so don't let that stop you from experimenting. I cut up some onion also this time. So thrilled to be using up stuff from the fridge.

Sonoran Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
Will keep this recipe. I made my own creole seasoning from this website, but cut the salt down a little bit and was missing onion powder. We had 9,000 lume cayenne pepper and I don't know how that compares to the usual so I decided to omit it from the sauce. The only salt I used was in the creole mixture. I used non stick spray in the pan and just brushed olive oil on the fish. I put the remaining spice on my husband's piece and he remarked that it was quite spicy which is a first. Glad I didn't add more. Quite tasty. I used a 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes that I blended in place of the whole tomatoes. I used too much chopped onion by mistake, but it was fine.

Traditional Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
This was delicious. I didn't use all the sugar, but there was still some sweetness. I used 1 can of kidney beans and 1 can of black beans. I didn't use jalapeno and it was perfect for me and my daughter was able to eat it.

Super Easy Stir-Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
Pretty good. My husband usually does a cabbage stir fry, but I was trying to pull dinner together with left over Chinese while he was busy. I used a minimal amount of canola oil and towards the end used a little bit of sesame oil and threw in some toasted sesame seeds also. I used rice vinegar as I had it on hand. I liked it. My husband usually adds more ingredients, but this worked and was quick and easy.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Came out fine, may use it again. I did use 4 whole eggs and had only AP flour so I did the cornstarch substitution mentioned by others. All my cold ingredients reached room temp. The cake was dense and sweet. Using all that butter made my arteries quiver and I will probably try doing some alterations with apple sauce in the future. What I heard from my family was: Yum, that was good, Thanks, mom, and from my critically honest friend- is that a different recipe (no praise). She thought I had used a different icing recipe and she didn't ask for seconds. But that might've been because her boyfriend who just lost 34 pounds and who had one bite was with her. I'm hoping there is some left at my mom's so I can try some more today.

Peanut Butter Fingers II

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
Taste-wise these were great, but they were a mess to serve. As some suggested I heated the sugars with the butter and also cut down on the white sugar to 1/4 cup. Since I had an open container of applesauce I decided to replace a 1/6 cup of the butter with that and probably saved 10 calories, lol. I realized that my big pan was still at someone's house so I used two pans. I had trouble getting the topping to spread on the bottom without it pulling everything up. When it had cooled I cut is as well as I could and just scooped up the remnants with a fork. It was plenty sweet with the sugar reduction and tasted great. It was amazing how the peanut butter shone through even though it looked like it was just chocolate. I think the mixture needed more moisture in it to make the bottom stay together. FYI- I used Old Fashioned Oats. I had oatmeal yesterday for breakfast and then a few of these treats and couldn't eat dinner last night. Plenty of fiber going on.

Honey Ginger Green Beans

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
I'm glad to have another way to dress up veggies. I only used 1/4 cup of honey and then squeezed a bit more on top of the beans while they were cooking. I probably would've liked them with a 1/2 cup of honey, but my husband doesn't care for sweet stuff. 1 cup sounded like way too much. I also microwaved my beans because I had other stuff going on the range. By the time my husband came in the beans were cold. I heated mine up a bit and the flavors seemed to come alive.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
Delicious! I had 2 large chicken breasts. I didn't have stewed tomatoes so I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and 1 1/2 tomatoes I scrounged up from the plant and freezer. I didn't have worcestershire, threw in 1 Tbsp of steak sauce for the heck of it. No celery seed either. I used a little oil in my skillet and just 1 Tbs of butter. I also threw in some frozen yellow pepper strips to up the vegetable consumption. This was barely enough sauce for my 2 large (chicken) breasts. I didn't add any hot pepper sauce, wasn't sure what it was and my daughter can't handle too much spiciness. Very yummy.
