Pear Honey Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I made this for Thanksgiving to do a) something different with Cranberries, and b) try to have a cranberry sauce that has no sugar. I know honey is sugar, but it's different, and it made my wife happier using honey. In any event, this came out great!! Great flavor, great mixture. I'll keep this and make it again next year.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Wow!!! How super easy is this!! I didn't really measure what I was putting in, so it was just the juice of one lime (that seemed to be really, really juicy). Omitted the lime zest. But, it was SOOO easy and VERY good. I didn't add the tablespoon of margarine in with the rice, and I felt the rice was lacking a flavor, and that was it. I will make sure to do that next time (got the wife's permission to do so; normally, she doesn't like that in anything). Will make this again in a heartbeat!!!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
What an unbelievable recipe!!! This was SOOOO easy to make, and it was incredibly good. I didn't have graham cracker crumbs (pre-done). I used my amazing Vitamix and it used about two packages of graham crackers ground up. Each package seemed to make one cup of crumbs. Will make this again and again. This is going in my cookbook, for sure!!! The only thing that confused me on this recipe is the serving of 12… This made WAY more than 12 bars. To get 12 bars, you would have to cut these into enormous bars… I made decent size squares and it came out to be about 42 squares.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a HUGE hit!! This was absolutely wonderful. I loved this salad. I made it exact, but I liked the suggestion of adding red onion. I will do that next time. I might add some more veggies too, like zucchini. But, it was spectacular and I've now added it to my cookbook!!!

Twelve Minute Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This was spectacular. Like someone else mentioned, I used sun dried tomatoes that were already in oil, then used the oil as the oil to cook with. Other than that, didn't change anything on the recipe. At first, I was concerned about it being dry, but if it was a tad dry, it still had tons of flavor so that it didn't matter. Everything was flavorful. It was spectacular!!! Will keep this and make it again!!

Orange Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Quick and easy. I didn't exactly measure out the olive oil, dijon, garlic (used 2 cloves), or honey, but it worked well. Didn't have cilantro, so I didn't use it. But, it was a great, easy dressing that I made in a pinch. Will make it again and again.

Pat's Baked Beans (vegetarian version)

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
This recipe is absolutely fabulous. I omitted the bacon and the garbanzo beans (since garbanzo beans just don't seem right in baked beans) and doubled the pinto beans to compensate. I've made this a few times. It's wonderful. Moved now to my cookbook.

Pineapple Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This was super easy and great. I couldn't find Pineapple yogurt, so I used Piña Colada yogurt instead. I also omitted the sugar because I thought it was unnecessary. I'll make it again and again.

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Quick, easy, good. I cut the water down to 1 cup and used kosher salt instead of seasoning salt. But, it was wonderful. Will make it again.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Quick, simple, easy, spectacular. I did add some pumpkin pie spice to it, too. But, it was so good and so easy. Will keep this one for a long time.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Holy Cow. This recipe is super simple, and for how simple it is, it is SOOOOOO good!!! Just like one reviewer said, because I was using salted butter, I saw no need to add more salt. I had Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, so I used it. It didn't do anything to it in subtracting flavor or make it cook weird. So, it came out healthier (Well, as healthy as a cornbread with buttermilk and a stick of butter can be)… ;-) All in all, this recipe is TOTALLY a keeper!!!

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
Absolutely amazing recipe. We made a few minor adjustments, which actually made it healthier. We substituted brown sugar for white sugar, and instead of a cup and 3/4 of flour, we used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup of white flour. It came out spectacular. We added a touch more vanilla, too, and we upped the bananas to 3. It was a great recipe. Will make it again (in fact, we're making a second loaf tomorrow).

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
This is a great recipe!!! I always used to order a dish very similar to this at Chili's. This was just like it, but even better because I was making it!! This is definitely a keeper!!!

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
This was excellent!!! The chicken was easy to make and it went extremely well inside of a pita with the tzatziki sauce and veggies. The tzatziki was easy to make as well. I didn't know what greek seasoning was, nor could I find it, so I threw in basil, oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder. Paired this with the "Good For You Greek Salad", and this was a great dinner. All we needed was a rice dish to go with it, and this would had been a perfect dinner. But, this recipe is a keeper and I will DEFINITELY make it again. The author of this recipe, however, needs to edit the servings… This serves WAY more than 4 people, and the nutritional facts are SUPER high because of that. So, hopefully that will change because it makes it show how healthy this actually could be.

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
SUPER, SUPER easy and SOO SOOO good!! I used light cream cheese to make it less fattening (not totally healthier because you can't get healthy with that amount of brown sugar) and doubled it. I sliced up a ton of apples, brought them into work with the dip, and it was wonderful. Piece of Advice: Use the more tart apples to dip with. The sweeter ones just overpower everything. The tart and the dip compliment each other nicely.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This was so easy, yet so difficult. Difficult in making sure I start this at a time where I can deal with it the rest of the day. Easy because it was super easy. Started it at 9 in the morning, and was able to jar it by 7:30 at night. I did modify the recipe slightly. Instead of the various spices, I cheated and just used about a tablespoon of Pumpkin Pie spice (key word is about; i just started sprinkling it all over the top), and I cut the sugar in half and used brown instead. I used all kinds of Apples: Mostly Granny Smith, but some Pink Lady and some Fuji as well. This gave a very interesting and VERY tasty blend. I will TOTALLY do this again next fall. We have a place called Apple Hill near the Sacramento area where we get nice, good apples. I will look forward to possibly making this a tradition!! UPDATE: Easy solution... Start this the night before. Let it cook overnight. 1. You don't have to worry about the timing as much, 2. It makes the whole house smell wonderful as you wake up in the morning.

Apple Matzo Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Wonderful!!! All the recipes I used to have for this used a dozen eggs and a lot of sugar. This was a lot less, and it was great to make!! I doubled it and put it into a 9x13 pan. Came out wonderful!!!!

Apricot Barbecued Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Aside from omitting the garlic next time (especially 3 cloves worth; that was way too much for this kind of dish), I loved it and will make it again!! Super easy, and incredibly good.
