Avocado and Tuna Tapas

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
Loved this! I do think it will be easier in the future to just scoop out and mash the avocado with the tuna though.

No one in my family liked this at all. The taste was just terrible for us.

Peanut Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
The whole family loved this cake. I used extra PB in the cake and frosting. Drizzled with hot fudge and crushed PB cups.

Honey Lime Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
For such a simple recipe this was outstanding! I used mango instead of blueberries as that is what I had. I did not have pine nuts and it was great without- anxious to try with the nuts but either way I will be making this again and again.

Emily's Strawberry Balsamic Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
This really is a delicious salad but the dressing is so high in calories! I cut the oil by half and the dressing was still great. Company worthy but not so sure it's worth it for an average weeknight dinner. The feta and almonds add a lot of calories as it but then the dressing makes this more of a meal as far as calorie count.

Amazing Southwest Cilantro Lime Mango Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
Left out the jalapenos for the kids. The chicken marinade was pretty good. I bought lime juice instead of using fresh and that is where I goofed- the mayo mixture was way too tangy. I used thick Italian bread and sprayed the outsides with olive oil then grilled on the George Foreman after assembling all the ingredients. Loved the Panini type sandwich as a result of using the Foreman. Will likely make again but will just use the chicken marinade with cut up mango, store bought salsa and the veggies (they were actually pretty good on the sandwich. Anxious to try it as a salad also. Fresh Lime juice is a must in this one!

Buster Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I crushed the oreos in a Ziploc bag with the other crust ingredients- thought it would be faster and easier but the crust turned out too clumpy since it is frozen- next time I will def crush in a food processor. I used Prairie Farms Vanilla ice cream that came in a rectangle box so I could cut through it and lay big slices down on the crust and then just easily smooth it out- worked great but next time I will use a bit less ice cream as this layer seemed too thick. I might also try a basic vanilla/fudge ice cream- not anything too busy as the dessert doesn't need much extra. The fudge and peanuts on top were delicious. This filled my 9X13 dish to the top so I could not add cool whip to it. I put the cool whip on each serving but after the 1st night we decided it really doesn't need the cool whip.

Lisa's Easy Chicken

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Had to use dried parsley and didn't have Old Bay seasoning so I used 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp oregano instead as suggested by another reviewer. I also cut the pepper down by half and used garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. Used red pepper instead of green and only half a red onion as a while seemed liked a lot. Even with all these changes this was a pretty recipe. Very easy and quick. Will definitely make again.

Ham and Swiss Stromboli

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
I really like the idea of this but it seems like something was just off. I did use a puff pastry as that is what I had on hand. I didn't love the bacon in it but Hubs did. I think it would have been a lot better using slices of swiss cheese instead of shredded. I may try this again without the bacon and with cheese slices.

Zesty Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Cut the salt by half! The lime taste was so strong when we first had this- way too tangy. After letting it sit in the fridge overnight this turned out excellent! I used extra cilantro.

Polish Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
I used light sour cream and light cream cheese. Also used half whole wheat flour and half white in the dough part of the recipe. Doubled the topping which I would recommend as it was the perfect amount of topping. We liked this a lot better after it sat in the fridge for a bit. I didn't have much trouble spreading the dough as others mentioned. It spread fine in the dish and for the top layer I rolled between 2 pieces of wax paper and placed it over the top of the filling. It didn't make it to all the corners but it didn't effect the end result. Will likely make again but would use all white flour as the cake part ended up being pretty dense. It did bake up fluffier than I would have thought based on how thin it was in the pan. Overall, we thought it was good but not outstanding. Would be good if you were looking for something to make the day before.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Used 1/2 TB olive oil in place of cooking oil. Cut back on the onion a bit as 1 large onion seemed like a lot. Had to use dried ginger as that is all I had on hand. Left out the water chestnuts and green onion. Used chili sauce for the Asian chile paste. Placed in Romaine leaves and topped with a little shredded carrot. Even with all the changes I had to make this was excellent. We tried the PF Chang's sauce as others suggested. Hubs like it but I thought it was just ok. Will def make these again- so easy.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Wow this was so good! I used 1 tb Tony Chacheres creole seasoning in place of the salt and pepper and omitted the hot sauce (the kids). I only used turkey kielbasa as that is all I had on hand. I cooked the rice (brown rice) separate and added near the end. I also added a can of red beans and rotel tomatoes. Turned out too spicy for the kids but the adults loved it. Will def make again and again.

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
Outstanding. I used two regular cream cheese and one light. Used light sour cream. Cooked in a water bath and at the end of cooking time I turned the oven off and let the door stand open for a half hour. No cracks. It was so smooth! Get reviews from family at Easter. Next time I will definitely put a layer of caramel in the middle of the cheesecake and then drizzle a bit more over the top when serving. The crust seemed almost cookie like. Really so good!

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
I used half white and half whole wheat flour. Skipped the corn syrup. These def needed the glaze to be good. Was really hoping for something special here but would prefer regular pancakes next time. More like two stars for us but since I changed ing a bit a bumped to three stars to be fair.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
More like 2 stars for us but trying to be fair since I did not use fresh herbs. I imagine fresh would make a huge difference. I also sprayd my pan with olive oil instead of using butter. Really not very good but could be better if using fresh herbs nd butter I suppose. Will not be making this one again.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
Used dried ginger since I didn't have fresh. Had to boil the marinade for quite some time before it turned into a glaze. We thought the fish was bland without the glaze. The glaze really made it better. Not a 5 star recipe but worth making again when in a hurry.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Made the vanilla version for a white cake. I tripled the recipe for 2 boxes of cake mix.... Should have made 4x the original recipe. It's good frosting and easy but just not outstanding. Perfect for frosting a tiered cake and making cupcakes look great.
