Bacon 'n' Egg Bundles

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Clever. Used turkey bacon- had kind of a hard time wrapping the bacon in a circle so ended up just kind of placing strips in the egg. Fun, lots of options, and the kids LOVED them!

Salmon Tango

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Used 2 TB olive oil in place of the butter. This was pretty good but not nearly as great as the Delicious Salmon recipe from this site.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
I did change the recipe a bunch so not sure how it is as written but to be fair I stuck with 5 stars. I read lots of reviews for this bread and other zuc/pin bread recipes so I based my changes off of those. I was really trying to make a healthier snack so I used 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, 1 cup applesauce in place of the oil, splenda in place of the sugar and whole wheat flour. I used extra zucchini (from the food processor for ease), extra pineapple and about 1 cup raisins. I added 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon and 3/4 tsp nutmeg and increased the baking soda to 1-1/2 tsp. I baked in 3 loaf pans (they were 8X4X2 roughly) and it took almost 2 hours for them to be done. I wasn't so sure they were done even then b/c they were so moist, almost gooey. The end result was pretty great tasting. Next time I will use just a little extra zucchini and pineapple to cut the gooey-ness a bit but I will do everything the same. The kids LOVED this! I was going to give a loaf away but we ended up eating all of it!

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Made as stated except did not serve over cabbage with green onions. The sauce is really good on the chicken. Everyone loved the leftover sauce for dipping. Served w a cabbage salad with the peanut sauce from the Asian coleslaw recipe from this site. Went together really well.

Healthier Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Didn't knock my socks off but it was good enough that I might make again when looking for a fast, easy way to prepare shrimp.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I was a bit disappointed after all the rave reviews. This was good but not WOW good. I did have to use dried rosemary so maybe fresh is what would take this over the egde....? Anyway, I cut the salt and oil by half as suggested by others. Made extra kabobs with green and yellow peppers and zucchini. Might try this again if I end up with fresh rosemary in the house.

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
More of a 4.5 stars- really good. I used a mix of red and green grapes. Cut lots of calories by using fat free sour cream, a mix of half fat free cream cheese/half light cream cheese, and splenda. I mixed the pecans with splenda brown sugar and just mixed in each serving because I afraid it would get kinda of gooey/soggy just sitting in the salad. Will make again- the whole fam really liked it. Not so sure it would be party worthy with all the other great fruit salad recipes out there but it is really good.

Grilled Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
We do lots of sweet potatoes in this house so I was looking forward to this on the grill. It was just ok for us. The flavoring was just average compared to other sweet pot fry recipes. They didn't seem to cook to our liking on the grill either. We'll stick to the oven.

Creole Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Really really good! I did as another suggested though and cut the pepper by half and omitted the salt as the 1st ingredient in my creole seasoning was salt. I also used only 2.5 quarts water since it seemed like a lot of water. Next time I will use 2 quarts only. I used turkey smokd sausage which came in a 13 oz package so next time I will double the sausage as there really wasn't much. This was so easy and tasty! Hubs loved it and went back for 2nds which is rare!

Raw Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Had to use peanut butter, regular soy sauce and regular honey as that is what I had. I love the salad part of this but the dressing was way to heavy on the miso flavor for me. Hubs liked it alot though. I actually made a similar PB dressing from the asian coleslaw recipe on this site to use on the cabbage/zucchini mixture. We added fresh cilantro too. Will def make the salad part again but stick to the other dressing.

Michelle's Honeybun Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Wow. I had a box of yellow butter recipe cake mix I needed to use and came across this recipe. I did not have high hopes since it was the butter recipe kind of mix and i only had fat free sour cream. Also, it just doens't look like a very exciting cake. I tried a piece shortly after I poured the icing on- it was not very good at all so I put it in the fridge thinking it might be better cold. A few hours later I tried a small piece and could not stop! Hubs even LOVED it and he is usually a strict peanut butter/chocolate dessert lover. Took some to my parents and they also loved it. Even my 6 year old said "oh my, this cake is delicious!" Will definitley make again- maybe with a bit extra cinnamon and I might bake at 325 since I use a non-stick pan. Awesome. You won't be sorry for trying this- except for when your pants don't fit anymore from eating it all!

Mock Caprese Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I'm impressed. Love mozz caprese but don't love the calories involved with all that cheese. This is a great alternative. Lots of tomatoes and too much balsamic vinegar. I started eyeballing all the ing rather than measuring after I made this a few times- like 6 times in the last week! I like it heavy on the tomatoes with just a splash or 2 of the vinegar. Hubs even loves it! I have added cut up red onion which was a nice addition. Great way to use up all the fresh basil I have!

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
Probably more of a 4 star recipe for us but in all fairness I changed a couple things so figured I'd go with 5 stars for now. I used ketchup in place of the tomato paste since it seem like such a waste to open a can of paste and use only 1 TB. I used 1/8 cup fresh basil with 1 TB dried parsely as that is what I had on hand. I didn't add the lemon juice as we weren't going to grill them for a few hours- intended to add it 30 minutes before they went on the grill but completely forgot. They were good- glad we tried it despite having to sub a few ing.

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.
