Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2014
I used a full head of cauliflower and just microwaved it until it was tended. Then I put it in the food processor and then to a colander in an attempt to drain excess liquid. I used a mixture of parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Doubled all ingredients bc of the full head of cabbage. Spread it on parchment paper on a large pizza pan that has holes on the bottom. I had to bake this almost twice as long! It was definitely soggy! Flavor was pretty good though as a healthy version of crust. I will try this again just bc of the health factor but, along those same lines, I will reduce the amount of cheese to cut calories a bit. I think I will up the amount of cauliflower and then squeeze as much moisture out as possible. Edit 2/14- made again, this time processed the raw cauliflower, micro for 4 minutes, cooled on tea towel then squeezed all the moisture out. Added a few seasonings- oregano and basil- baked as stated. Delicious- much better and not so soggy this way. next time I will cut down on the overall cheese just bc that adds up to a lot of calories and let's face it- if you are going to put that much cheese on then you should just eat a real pizza!

Ranch Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I used Light Ranch and only 2 TB fat free sour cream (I was short) for the sauce. I didn't use all of the remaining seasoning in the chicken- just eyeballed it until it looked good and seasoned and I had to add a little water to the chicken just to keep it moist. The flavor was probably only 4 stars but since it was so easy I gave it the 5th star. Hubs and the kiddo assembled theirs on flatout bread and I had mine on a spinach salad. Everyone was happy and healthy. Thanks!

Delicious Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Awesome. Will def make again and again! I baked at 400 for about 16 minutes and used salmon fillets- no skin. Only marinaded about 3 hours (in a ziploc bag) and it was still wonderful.

Summertime Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Didn't have shallots so I used 1 TB dried onion. I also cut the sugar in half as suggested by other reviewers but next time I will add the full 2 TB as I don't think it was too sweet at all. I didn't marinade the fish- just put frozen fillets in a foil lined pan and poured the marinade over them. Cooked them at 425 for about 18 minutes. This ones a keeper!

Chex® PB and Chocolate Blast

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
The cereal was really hard to spread out on the baking sheets. It ended up kind of thick and I had to break it into pieces which turned out like big chunks. I will likely make it again b/c it was good but I think I might melt the chips in a big pan and mix the cereal in while it is over low heat to see if that helps. I also thought the peanuts and Reese's pieces needed to be mixed into the melted chocolate. They seemed too plain.

Margarita Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I used regular honey b/c that is what I had on hand. I just didn't get this. Maybe the flavor was odd due to the honey. I tried to use a foil bag as others suggested but the salmon was still cold at the end of the cooking time so I ditched the bag and cooked them in a dish. We ate them but I will not be making them again.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
Tried this as a trial for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! I cut the sugar in the potatoes by half and will do the same again next time (used splenda). Made double the topping but didn't need it all. I put it in a smaller than 9X13 casserole. If making for more than 6 people I would definitely double the recipe for a 9X13 dish. A single recipe worth would be very thin in a 9X13. For Thanksgiving I plan to double the potatoes and topping (maybe a bit more than double the topping) and use a 9X13.

Tropical Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Used olive oil instead if veg oil and crushed pineapple instead of tidbits. I also used the pineapple juice in place of the water. Easy and quick. It was good and I will make again- maybe use chicken next time.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Used red pepper flakes in place of chili pepper flakes b/c I read they are the same thing. I left out the veg oil to cut calories- didn't seem to need it anyway..I didn't have a can of beef broth so I used 2 beef boullion cubes with 2 cups of water and let the liquid simmer out about 10 minutes. I added everything to the crockpot after the beef broth simmered with the meat. I used 20 oz. diced tomatoes with green chilis as that is what I had on hand. I also added 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained. Added the zucchini an hour before I served it. Excellent. Will be a regular in our house.

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!

Rocky Road Candies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Used 10 oz. marshmallows as others suggested and it was plenty! I will make these again but I think I will add some peanut butter to the chocolate- it just seemed to be the only missing thing.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I was really excited about this b/c of all the great reviews but it turned out disappointing! Way too salty and the lime juice overpowered the bowl. I will try to make it again without all the salt and hopefully update my review with something positive.

Spinach Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
My family really liked these. My only problem was with the spinach- it was too stringy. Next time I will chop it in a food processor before adding it to the other ingredients. I also used bacon bits from a jar and it was so much easier.

Bacon Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
I've been making this all week in individual portions. Just eyeballing all ingredients- typically half an avocado (a little mashed), red onion as that is what I have, splash of rice vinegar (plain, again- what I have). I had to sub zucchini for the cucumber when I ran out, also tried basil in place of cilantro when I ran out, and added a splash of lime juice. I mix it all up and then put it on top of a plate of spinach leaves (even better to put in a bowl with tight lid and shake). Easy, healthy and delicious. I can't stop making it!!

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!

Broccoli Salad with Margarita Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
I usually avoid trying any recipe with less than 10 reviews but this one sounded so good. I used cherry tomatoes and omitted the mushrooms (yuck) and used about 1/2 cup fresh cilantro (we LOVE it). The smell of the dressing after I blended it made me nervous- I did not have high hopes b/c it just didn't smell good. I left the romaine out (didn't want it to get soggy- highly recommend leaving it out until ready to eat) and let the broccoli and other ing marinade for about an hour and a half. I filled each bowl about half full of romaine and then filled the rest of the bowl with the broccoli mixture and mixed it all up. I had every intention of adding some parmesan cheese but completely forgot and I am so glad I did b/c this was fantastic even without cheese! I am always counting calories and I could enjoy a large bowl of this with no worries at all AND it is really filling. The 2nd day was even better. I cannot express how great this was! One word of caution- go easy on the onion- Hubs thought it was a bit too strong... I didn't mind at all though... maybe personal preference. I will definitely be making this for our next 'company for dinner'. I just hope we can eat this outside- what a great warm weather salad. Wow, really, you have to try this.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
I can't believe how good these are! I followed the recipe exactly except for using a little extra peanut butter in the batter and the filling (we love PB in this house!). I think the amount of filling was perfect as written. They are definitely best the 1st day. By day 3 they were a little dry. I don't know how anyone could pass these up. Fantastic!!

Lemon Barbeque Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I can't believe how good this was! I'm not a huge meatloaf fan but I have a freezer full of venison that I need to use. I used 3 pieces of bread instead of 4. As others suggested, I made balls and cooked them in a greased muffin pan (about 30 minutes total). I kind of flattened the top and made a bit of a well to keep the sauce from sliding off. Sprinkled them with a little lemon pepper before putting them in the oven. I drained some excess liquid from the pan at the 15 minute mark. I didn't add cloves to the sauce b/c I didn't have any- won't use it next time anyway. They were so moist and flavorful. Perfect. Will definitely make again!!

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I'm always looking for good cabbage recipes since it is such a great diet food. I sprayed my pan with Pam instead of using butter and it worked well. I did end up adding just a little olive oil to keep the onions from burning on the bottom after about 10 minutes. I used about 4 celery stalks- we like celery. I also added 1 can kidney beans (rinsed and drained) the last 10 minutes to add some fiber and filling and it was wonderful! Will definitely be making again. I highly recommend the addition of kidney beans :)
