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.

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!

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.

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.

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).

Berry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
Nice and tasty combination. I modified the recipe, substituting half of the milk for nonfat vanilla yogurt, only using a couple ice cubes, and instead of sugar, half of a banana.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

Would be better with stronger flavored fruit.

Kale and Banana Smoothie

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

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).

Thin Mint Green Monster

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Except for subbing regular milk for the coconut milk, I made the recipe as listed but the mint was too overpowering. I tried fixing it by adding more water and spinach and then by adding a scoop of chocolate protein powder. It was still too strong. I'll try it again, but I'll sub fresh mint for the mint extract, or only put a very tiny amount of extract in. UPDATE (7/16/214): I made this again, only this time I doubled the use of fresh mint and didn't use any mint extract at all. It was much better this time, so I increased my initial rating. Still, as I wouldn't make the recipe as listed again, I am rating this as a 3 (my modified version was more like a 4, but the original version was a 1).

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Turned out great...my husband loved it, and since cooking isn't my forte, I'm really glad to have another easy and tasty dish, especially one I can stick in the crock pot in the morning before work so we can eat as soon as we get home. Instead of cooking on high for four hours and then cooking in a Dutch oven or skillet, I just put all the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning for 8 hours on low.

Tofu Walnut Burgers with Irish Stout

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
It was decent enough, but probably not something I'd make again. There just wasn't much flavor to it, and I followed the recipe exactly as it was given.
