Cottage Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Really, really good! I followed the recipe exactly as written and I was so pleased. I made a bit more of the topping so that I could serve a bit more if I wanted. I'm glad I did because it came in handy for the leftovers we were able to eat for lunches. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Wow! Easy, and delicious! What a treat! Per another suggestion, I added 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 1.4 cup powdered sugar to the batter. Amazing. I also followed another suggestion and blended the "wet" ingredients first, and then slowly added the "dry" ingredients to this to avoid lumpiness. It worked well. If you still have lumps, just wait fine minutes and whisk again... they should all have absorbed. I initially served these with fresh strawberries, jam, and a dusting of powdered sugar, but found that they were amazing with JUST the powdered sugar on top. What a treat and SO easy!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Loved these. I didn't have enough butter, so I added part butter, part oil and it worked pretty good. The batter appeared really crumbly, even though my butter was VERY soft. I added a bit more oil (1/4 cup) and it was fine. I also added 2 tsp vanilla rather than one. My oven required 10 minutes for the cookies to be edible. I tried 8, but they were just too soft. 10 was perfect for me. Also, right out of the oven, I sprinkled them with a cinnamon/sugar mixture and it was lovely!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I made some changes based on the reviews, and I'm giving it 5 stars because of the way it turned out. I watch what I eat and only eat organic, so here is what I added to be specific. First off, I wanted to use quality SHREDDED chicken, so it's easy when you can use the crock pot. I used two organic and free-range breasts, and put them in the crock pot for 3.5 hours in one can of organic cream of chicken soup, 15 ounces of chicken broth (yes, organic), 1.5 tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of chili powder, 1 tsp of garlic, 1 tsp. ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp kosher salt. After the chicken fell apart (3.5 hours), I added the cans of veggies, and every can I added was of the organic variety. Find whatever you can. I also used organic cheese at the end as a garnish in addition to an organic lime to juice over the top. In my bowl, I ate just the soup with no cheese or tortilla chips, but with my partner (who can't seem to gain weight no matter what he does) I added the cheese and crushed tortillas. I figured this recipe out to be LESS than 200 calories per serving if you do not add cheese or tortilla chips and I didn't miss them at all. It's a little spicy this way, but very authentic tasting! In the future, I might put a dollop of sour cream on top of my partner's soup - he could use the fat, and I'm sure it would taste good, too.

Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Really, really good. I added broccoli, and didn't fry the meat as directed. I used two tablespoons of oil and that was more than sufficient. I would give it a five star rating, but I added up all of the ingredients, and even with my modifications of the amount of oil, there is no way that the caloric calculator is correct on this one. Dieters beware! You can get out of control with this dish because it is so very delicious!

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I loved this and am giving it five stars, even though I made some changes. First of all, the 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes must be a typo. I put in 1 teaspoon and it was still hot enough to make my nose drip! I also only used 1 tablespoon of olive oil. For the sauce, I also added 2/3 cup Thai Lite Coconut Milk, used 3 teaspoons of honey rather than one, added a tablespoon of flour to the sauce to thicken it, threw in some steamed broccoli and carrots, and served it over jasmine rice. I was also quite generous with the fresh Ginger and might have doubled it. I actually think that this recipe as is should qualify as genius because the combination of flavors is perfect and you can add so many things to make it your own. I'm so grateful that it was shared! It also is very low in calories, and perfect for those who are dieting. Very tasty... Very quick to make... It was a brilliant hit. I will make this a lot.
