Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
So easy and soooo good. My good friend's mom always made a similar salad for us when we were young but she used cauliflower also. I used fat free mayo which I cut down to 1/2 cup only. i also made a batch using fat free plain yogurt- again only 1/2 cup. Be sure to add the bacon last as it does get very soggy after a while and the crunch and flavor it adds when freshly added is the best! I keep extra pieces of turkey bacon that I cooked in the microwave in the fridge to add to individual servings.

Grilled Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
This is pretty sweet but very good. I love the fact that it is a healthy way to enjoy salmon. We will likely make again. I did marinade for around 3 hours and then made a 2nd batch of the sauce for basting rather than use the leftovers from the raw fish. Delicious Salmon from this site still tops the charts for us for salmon recipes.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Skipped the sugar and used gingerale in place of the carb water. I added a little cherry juice and chunks of pineapple. Used cheap merlot for the wine. I am basing the 5 stars off of what hubs and my father in law had to say- they both love red wine and they both loved this. They were skeptical b/c Sangria is usually too sweet. Leaving the sugar out worked for them.

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
I left out the nuts- we don't like them in cookies. I made half into cookies and the other half in a mini muffin pan. The mini muffins turned out great. I topped them with rich chocolate frosting from this site. They were very rich but very delicious. The cookies on their own also had great flavor but didn't stand a chance next to the frosting topped 'brownie muffins'. The muffins were kind of hard to get out of the pan (sprayed generously with Pam). I think if you let them cool for at least 25 minutes or so they would be easier to get out. Will make again and try some of the muffin ones with marsh cream and a drizzle of fudge and caramel as another reviewer suggested.

Three-Berry Lemon Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Made this for fathers day and it was a hit! made as stated except I used 6 oz lemon cream pie yogurt and 2 oz vanilla yogurt as the yogurt cups come in 6 oz sizes. Anyway, i was a little concerned about it being too 'lemony' as others stated but it not at all. It is definitely necessary to let it sit overnight at least- maybe longer so the cake can absorb more of the yogurt mixture. I skipped the almonds- it just didn't need it. Edited 7/14/12- made again for the 4th of July. Put in a 9X13 pan and it didn't turn out as well. Could be that I used a store brand of angel food cake instead of an actual brand name (seemed kind of dense, not so airy) and a thicker lemon yogurt instead. The cake just didn't seem absorb the goo which is what makes it sooo good. Will try again in a 9X13 (although not all the cake fits so maybe a bigger cake pan would be better) but will use a brand cake mix for sure. Edited 6/14- Needed to save time so I bought an angel food cake from the grocery bakery BUT I also saw a lemon cream cake there so bought both and used half of each- Made a huge difference- it was delicious! Used half vanilla half lemon yogurt. Strawberries and blueberries in all layers. Did a trifle and a 9X13 (with just 1 layer) since I had the 2 cakes I doubled everything- the 9x13 ended up just as good as the trifle. Everyone LOVES this!

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Made exactly as stated except I used 1/4 cup veg oil and 1/4 butter (for a more brownie like consistency) and light sour cream. I made these into cupcakes- baked in paper liners at 350 for 18 minutes- perfection. I ended up with 27 perfectly sized cupcakes. I stirred the choc chips with a little dry cake mix before mixing in to keep them from sinking to the bottom- not sure it was necessary but they sure didn't sink so I will probably do that again. I am so glad I didn't cut the choc chips in half because they were great in these! Warning- the batter does get very thick and having to mix it for 4 minutes ended up blowing out my mixer! UGH! I guess it was worth it because these were just so tasty. I frosted them with Rich Chocolate Frosting from this site and will do the same again next time. Best served cold.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I'm surprised this recipe has so many great reviews. I made as stated except i used olive oil in place of veg oil. I marinaded 4 hours and the taste was still a bit bland. The delicious salmon recipe on this site is similar and sooooo much better.

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I used a springform pan and all fresh fruit- strawberries, kiwi and blueberries. I made this for a Memorial Day cookout- everyone liked it but noone raved. It was similar to a fruit pizza.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I did as many others suggested and omitted the white sugar and cooked bacon 1st then the ground beef (I used turkey). I don't know what I was expecting but this was not it. I think I would have preferred them to be a bit sweeter and much less on the bacon... although hubs liked all that bacon. Had these for a Memorial Day cookout and no one really thought they were that great.

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Used a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread as suggested- good idea! Also mixed the egg mixture with the bread before putting in the pan to avoid the siggies at the bottom. It was good- not great. If you love this kind of breakfast at a restaurant you might think this is worthy of 5 stars. It certainly doesn't need syrup!

Cheese Souffles

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Mixed reviews- I thought they were worthy of 5 stars but I usually eat only egg whites and no cheese so this was a real treat- loved the cheddar taste. The rest of the family thought they were good but nothing spectacular. Leftovers in the fridge for a couple days tells me they didn't love it. So a 5 from me and a 3 from them.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
As other suggested I used half butter half shortening. Next time I will use all butter and they turned out more cake like and I like the flatter kind of this cookie ( like Subways... yum!). I used half the almond ext which was perfect- any more and it would have been too overpowering. Next time I will cut the mac nuts down a bit and use extra white choc chips.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Tries htese twice- 1st time burnt to a crisp under the brioler in an attempt to crisp them up a bit. 2nd time used turkey little smokies and turkey bacon. Cooked on a wire rack over a cookie sheet. Still couldn't get them to turn out right. The bacon was kind of tough. I did dredge the smokies and the bacon in the sugar before wrapping which I will do again. Not sure how to make this work but will keep trying because the flavor of the ones that turned out right was really good.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Made as stated except used bonless skinless breast and dried ginger as that is what I had. I did use all the optional seasoning. Marinaded for about 4 hours. This turned out pretty spicy- Hubs and I loved it but the kids wouldn't touch it. I boiled the marinade just before grilling for about 15 minutes and used it for basting. Will make again!

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Would give 5 stars but this was way too much glaze. I used a sugar free angel food cake, fat free cream cheese, splenda, fat free cool whip and sugar free glaze. Made for a decent dessert with way less calories. I'm sure this would taste much better using light cream cheese and light cool whip- guees it depends on how much those extra calories mean to you :) Using all the sugar/fat free stuff really gave that sweetener type of taste- no fault of this recipe.... just throwing out the info in case you are sensitive to that taste. Made this is a trifle bowl- looked great. Next time I will use much less glaze, maybe extra strawberries.

Cherry Berries on a Cloud

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Wow- rave reviews from this family! It is definiltely sweet as others have mentioned. Next time I make it I will cut our a good 1/4 cup sugar from the filling. The meringue bottom was just perfect- literally beat 1 TB sugar in at a time- it is worth it. I used the marshmallows as stated and will again as they were very subtle and I don't think anyone even knew they were in there but they added a nice texture. I will use twice the strawberries (at least) in the topping next time for 2 reasons- it's tastes better and people seemed to like them better and the topping goes further. You will definitely want the extra topping! Try this- delicious!

Heavenly 'Apple of My Thigh' Dessert

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
To be fair, I'm giving this 5 stars but really thought it was more of a 3 or 4 star recipe.... BUT, I used fat free cream cheese and splenda. I'm thinking full fat or even light cream cheese would have made a difference. I will keep this one around because it was nice to have a decent dip for apples..... def use regular or light cream cheese though because honestly, once you drizzle on all that caramel and top with the Heath bar, what's a few more calories :) OH, and it seemed like too much caramel on the top. Next time I will cut this down a bit and just go by looks.

Asian Cucumber Thai Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Had high hopes but this was just average. Made exactly as stated but used splenda to cut calories. Very healthy salad and it did have good flavor- really didn't need the peanuts. The Thai Cucumber salad from this site is similar and much better.

Summer Pepper Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
So good and easy. I used allred peppers and just 6 oz low fat feta as that is what I had on hand- could definitely use the full 8 oz of feta though as I did not think it was too much as others said. In fact, I never liked feta until I tried this salad! I used about 2 TB fat free Italian dressing and couple dashed of balsamic vinegar in place of the olive oil to cut back calories. I might try it with some fresh basil in addition to the parsley next time. Really really good. Especially good served over romaine or spinach as a great lettuce salad.

Jellybean Bark

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
Surprisingly good. All the kids loved this! So easy too. I tried some with choc bark- not so great. Def stick with the white choc. I alos did some with PB MnMs and the jellybean ones (starburst) were the best. I even made a few in some egg molds- really cute for Easter and some others in a lined mini muffin pan. Very sweet though so a little goes a long way.
