Italian Style Flounder

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
My family enjoyed this recipe, but I did make a couple of modifications to the recipe. I omitted the butter. I substituted dried Italian Seasonings instead of dry basil, and in place of fresh tomato I used a 14.5 oz can of basil, garlic & oregano flavored diced tomatoes drained.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
The whole family loved it. I used a 3.5 lb pork loin roast instead of beef, and white wine instead of vermouth, added a can of cannellini beans and about a cup of fresh mushrooms. Yummy. Will definitely try it again with beef.

Delicious and easy. I used 1 can each of black beans and small white beans which gave the dish great color.

Raspberry Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
Great recipe & nice change. We were surprised that the fresh jalapeno chile pepper added flavor but not heat! This was good paired with grilled swordfish.

Caramelized Red Bell Peppers and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
Instead of dried basil, I used 2 Tblsp fresh basil added just a few minutes before cooking was complete. Cooked only about 15 min after adding wine so peppers still had some body...would be too mushy if cooked for 30 min. Wonderful flavor.

Ham And Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
VERY good lunch/brunch with a salad. I streamlined this by substituting lowfat evaporated milk, 3/4 cup EggBeaters and lowfat cheddar cheese. Cooking time was about 65 min.

Cornish Game Hens with Rice Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
We used instant brown rice cooked in low sodium chicken broth instead of bullion, added a 1-oz box of golden raisins and substituted walnuts for almonds. Excellent...good enough for special company.

Cabbage and Cranberry Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
Very tasty! The quantity of onion seemed to be too much, so I used 1/2 of a smallish red onion and that was enough for us. This was a great accompaniment to grilled chicken.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
Easy and delicious...everyone wanted the recipe. I omitted the sugar and cherries and didn't dilute with seltzer or club soda. To a batch made with chardonnay, I added the lemonade concentrate, and to a merlot batch I used the limeade concentrate. Yummy.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This was the best Christmas roast ever! Mine needed to cook longer at the lower temperature before it reached the 145 degrees internal. This is the way I will season a standing rib roast forever!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
Made this for Christmas dinner and even those who are not wild about squash and sweet potatoes loved it! I substituted red potatoes for Yukon Gold, added some baby carrots, zucchini and a couple of whole garlic cloves. I will definitely make this again. It was a nice complement to the garlic prime rib.

Fresh Strawberry Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
Very easy & good. For 1 pie I used a frozen pie shell (not deep dish). I used 1 lb. of sliced fresh strawberries. Then I halved the glaze ingredients and used 1/2 TBLSP of sugar free Jello. It was just sweet enough. Low fat Redi-Whip was a great accompaniment.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
We all had seconds. Because I didn't want to go to the store, I made this with what I had on hand: 2 cans (rinsed) black beans, 2 cups frozen corn kernels, and 32 oz. low sodium chicken broth. Instead of adding the cheese to the pot, I served it on the side along with strained plain yogurt (instead of sour cream). Don't be afraid of the cinnamon. We didn't find it an identifiable flavor.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Very good rice pudding and except for having to babysit the pot so it wouldn't boil over, it was very easy. Several folks requested the recipe. I lightened up this recipe by using skim milk and 50-50 sugar and Splenda. I also added 2 cinnamon sticks to the pot and left them in until it was ready for the eggs. Instead of letting the pot rest for 10 minutes, I tempered the eggs and returned them to the pot right away and cooked for only about 5 minutes. I will make this again.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I followed the author's updated version and found it to be easy and tasty. The cumin adds great flavor. I use only 1 clove of garlic, especially if it will sit for a day or so because the garlic becomes too obvious, in my opinion. Also, I drained all the liquid from the beans, added the juice of the whole lemon and the olive oil to the processor.

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
We loved it. I marinated the tuna about 90 minutes, but wouldn't go more than an hour. Even with low sodium soy sauce it was a little salty. I cooked the tuna indoors for 5 minutes on each side on a hot grill pan for a medium (light pink) center. I also followed the suggestion of another and simmered the marinade to thicken. It made a nice sauce for rice.

Artichoke, Cheese and Olive Antipasto

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Since I was "pot-lucking" this and not serving/garnishing, I added the basil to the dressing. Because some in the group don't tolerate oregano well, I substituted thyme. I couldn't find smoked provolone, so used regular and it worked fine. After dicing 1/2 lb. of provolone it looked like enough, so I didn't add the remaining 1/2 lb. Everyone loved it!
