Lentil and Smoked Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Wow! This was soooo goood. Is has that robust flavor that you usually don't get until it's been sitting in your fridge overnight. And it was so EASY! I love that. FYI, I used Turkey Sausage and leftover red onion, and then topped of individual bowls with a squeeze of lemon.

Miso Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
It was hard to find Dashi, but worth it. I doubled the amount of Miso and reduced the tofu to 6 oz. We just like it stronger. Next time, I'll try adding seaweed also. Thanks for the recipe!

Veggie Pesto Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I use Basil pesto instead of sundried tomato, and use more of it, add celery and use chicken broth instead of veggie. And right before eating, I squeezed in some fresh lemon juice. Oh--and i used sweet potatoes instead of regular. I love how this is FILLED with veggies and has tons of flavor from the pesto. I use fresh pesto from a local international foods deli.

Chocolate Macaroon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
The chocolate part was really rubbery, and the filling very eggy. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but they were not edible. Maybe I overmixed the batter?

Four-Layer Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Yummy! I had 4 oz of fat free cream cheese that I needed to use up, and I found this recipe, which I cut in half and put in an 8x8 pan. It was really easy and quick. I used a processor to mix the crust ingredients, and again to mix the cream cheese (b/c I didn't soften it) with the sugar.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Wow... were these ever soft! And so easy... I had to add a little extra flour, but that's it. Next time, I'll try adding more sugar for a sweeter flavor. Mine were probably not as rich as they could have been because I used skim milk and egg whites, but they were still extremely good.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I tried this, and it was really good! I used whole wheat bread instead of white and cooked it in a 250 degree oven for 30 minutes or so until it was stale. That way the bread wouldn't be too soggy. I also used smart balance instead of butter, and cooked it in the oven as a dressing instead of stuffing. If I would change anything for next time, maybe I'd use a little less butter/margarine, but overall this was a pretty hard to mess up recipe, and very tasty.

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Typically I will make asparagus by simply coating the asparagus with olive oil spray, sprinkling with seasoning and searing it in a hot pan or grill until it browns. I wanted to try something different this time, so I tried this recipe. First, I switched to olive oil instead of butter, and I reduced it by almost half. Even so, I found the asparagus to be way too greasy and overcooked. I like sauteeing asparagus in general, but I don't like it this wilted and soggy, so I will stick with my usual recipe.

Pumpkin Tart With Pecan Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
My favorite part about this tart is the hearty, healthy crust. I wanted something south-beach friendly, so no white flour or sugar, and this fit the bill. I replaced the maple syrup with agave nectar (which is low-glycemic) and replaced the spices with 2t pumpkin pie spice. It was not very sweet, though, much less sweet than pumpkin pie usually is. I fixed that by eating it with ff cool whip on top. I may add 1/2c splenda to the filling next time. Also, I did not have any problems with the consistency, the texture turned out great.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I made this w/o potatoes (b/c I didn't have any), and I found the end product to have a great texture, but I also found it bland. I added sour cream as others had suggested, as well as red pepper flakes, curry powder, and cinnamon, and it ended up pretty good.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
I really liked these.. I can't believe how easy and quick they were to make! I only used one pan and that's it, and I swear, it must have taken only 10 minutes to prepare. In addition, I substituted splenda for 1/2 of the sugar and omitted the frosting. The splenda did not diminish the flavor at all since I still left half the sugar in. Also, I think I overcooked them a little at 20 minutes baking time. Next time, I'll check them at 15 minutes.

Good 100% Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I LOVED this recipe. I did it all by hand (no bread machine or mixer), and it took me 2 tries to get it right, but it turned out really good eventually. If you also need to do it by hand, click here to see my adaptation of it: http://www.southbeach-diet-plan.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=743538

Quick Cassoulet

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
I loved this recipe, but I suspected it would be too bland, so I added red pepper flakes and lemon juice. That really hit the spot. Plus, I had more meat (14 oz), b/c I wanted to use the whole package.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Wow. Unbelievable. So easy and so good. I used fresh oregano (3x the amount dried), used smoked beef sausage cut into small pieces, and omitted the shrimp (although next time I will try shrimp too), and my husband and I couldn't believe how flavorful this was! Everything about it was just right.. Mmmmm......

South Beach Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
I did exactly what user AGENTLUCY suggested in her review, and it was SOOOO GOOOD!! So flavorful and moist, and still SB-friendly. I used an xtra large glass baking pan and formed a loaf in the middle, and cooked for 35 minutes. Mmmm.... The 5 stars are for that version, not the original, which I didn't try.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
This was amazingly good. Mmmm.... I added more than the two T pecans, though, and mixed them into the potatoes before serving. Next time, I'm going to try adding a little splenda, just for variety.

Wassail (Hot Mulled Apple Cider)

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
This smells really good but was waaaay too strong. I normally love lots of spices, but we couldn't even finish this. If I were going to make this again, I'd take out one of the cinnamon sticks, and just have 1/2 teaspoon of cloves. I even watered it down with some fresca (lemon-lime sugar free soda), and that didn't even help much.

Oatmeal Pancake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
These taste just like the incredibly decadent German pancake I used to eat at a restaurant called Elmer's--until I started watching what I eat. I can't BELIEVE these are good for you! My husband and I topped it with "I can't believe it's not butter." I sprinkled mine with splenda and he spread sugar-free jam on his, and we both loved them. This is also VERY filling. They are not soft and fluffy like traditional pancakes, more like crepes as many have pointed out. And they are not sweet at all, so if you aren't going to top them with anything, you may need to add splenda or fruit or something. I'm just happy I can have pancakes again and not feel guilty about it! Highly recommended.

Kubbe

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
I liked this recipe, but I gave it only three stars because 2 tablespoons made the dough WAAAAY too salty. It has to be a typo. Maybe it's supposed to be 2 teaspoons. It was so salty that it was really not edible. But I'd be willing to try it again with less salt because, besides that, it was great. Particularly the meat filling. The spices made it very fragrant and the pine nuts were a flavorful touch. I added a little more allspice, though. And make sure (as the recipe points out) to make the crust as thin as possible. Mine was thick and came out to be the consistency of the crust on a corn dog. And it took more like 12 minutes to deep fry.

Wild Rice And Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
I loved this recipe. The only problem was that it lacked flavor at the end. More seasoning and some lemon juice fixed that. mmmmm...... Also, I used mushrooms.
