Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This soup is one of my favorites, although I made some modifications: I used olive oil instead of margarine, I didn't cook the broccoli separately (I also used broccoli florets rather than bunches and used a bit more than the recipe called for), and used about 2/3 the amount of cheese recommended. Over all, delicious, but it needs something more--garlic or nutmeg, perhaps (I'll try that next time).

Elaine's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Not bad, and a good use of cake mix. However, I think my standard peanut butter cookies are better (basic recipe with peanut butter and no flour).

OREO® Triple Layer Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Really delicious. I made as recommended, but didn't have problems with the layers. I froze it, but wouldn't do that again; next time, I would simply chill in the fridge.

Mellow Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Good cookies, but messy; I made them because I had the ingredients in my kitchen and wanted to use extra marshmallows up. I made as other reviewers suggested (350 for 9 minutes), but I didn't have parchment paper, so I used wax paper instead. Cookies must be removed quickly to dry; if they dry to the wax paper, the melted marshmallows are devilish to get off.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Very good--it's a nice, savory dish I've made four or five times, although I've usually made with dried (and rehydrated) shiitake mushrooms--they come out great!

Kale Orange Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
I really wanted to like this, but I found it to be only okay. Mine never got very thick (definitely not pudding consistency), and I substituted part of the water for ice (which should have made it thicker). The flavor wasn't bad, but it didn't have a lot of definite flavor.

Strawberry-Banana-Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Good-tasting, filling smoothie. The strawberry/peanut butter combo is a good one. I don't really taste the banana, but I think the banana is just to add sweetness and bulk, and it works for that. I added flaxseed meal to mine to make it healthier, and I used 1/4 cup each of nonfat strawberry yogurt and nonfat plain yogurt.

Flax Seed Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
This was okay, but there wasn't that much flavor. I think I might try it again, substituting fruit yogurt for the soy milk and/or fresh bananas for frozen.

Blueberry, Banana, and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This was good, and very filling. I substituted frozen mixed berries for the blueberries, and left out the honey. It was not quite cold enough for my taste, so I will make this again, but I'll substitute frozen bananas for fresh.

Four-Berry Smoothies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
I tried this recipe twice, first as given (the berry flavor was nice, but the consistency never got very smooth). I tried it again, substituting blueberry yogurt for 2/3 c. of the milk, and using fresh strawberries instead of frozen (I also added 1.5 tbsp flaxseed meal). The second time was much better: the berry flavor was still there (even enhanced), but the consistency was smoother, and that made it a 4-star smoothie.

Kale and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This was okay, but a bit taken over by the kale flavor.

LuvAnn's Guacamole

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I like the mix of stuff, but based on the other reviews, I only put in a dash of salt. It seemed like way too much lime juice (and I love lime juice). I'll try it again, but I'll cut the amount of lime juice

Berry Delicious

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Very good smoothie! Servings are small, so for breakfast, I made two servings of this smoothie for myself, added flaxseed meal, and used the whole banana (for 2 servings, it should have been half a banana). It turned out great!
