Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2004
This is delicous!! So much healthier than the store bought stuff, and I was able to make it a little spicier for DH and I, while keeping it mild for the kids. A definate plus! I used this in place of the packaged taco seasoning in a taco salad listed on this site (Taco Salad I) and it was great in that too.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2004
This is the best whole wheat crust I've made to date. I went ahead and put it in my bread machine, on the dough cycle. Turned out really nice. I used this recipe for the crust on the BBQ Chicken Pizza, and it was really yummy. This crust came out a little thicker than pizza bought at the store, but we thought it was really filling that way, and it wasn't too doughy or super thick, just right for us.

Toll House® Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
This was good. I made it for a morning coffee group with my SAHM's, and everyone really liked them. I did substitute slightly. I used canola oil in place of margarin (since it had to be melted anyway) and I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. I just couldn't imagine these without the vanilla. The consistance seemed odd in the bowl, but they turned out good. I thought a muffin should be a little sweeter, but everyone said they were great, and not one was left.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
WOW! I read the reviews, and made it soley based on that, not really expecting to like it. I'm not a soda person, couldn't imagine this really tasting that great. Was I ever wrong! I used Pepsi instead (not a Coke family, lol) and everyone ate it up. My four year old is not usually a meat kid, and he loved this. Big praise for him!

Savory Shrimp over Wild Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
My husband, not a big seafood person, but who will tolerate shrimp, LOVED this. I ended up using jumbo shrimp, because they were on sale. But the flavor was great, and I can't wait to make this again.

Bahama-Mama Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
My husband and kids loved this, and I only liked it. Part of the problem, I think, is that I used a chili sauce that ended up tasting more like ketchup. I have a chinese chili sauce, that's got some kick, which I will substitute next time. It was just a little too sweet for me. But my kids really enjoyed it, and it came out moist and tender

Cornish Game Hens Ricardo

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
I changed a few things on this. I marinated the hens overnight, and then rotissery grilled them (not cutting them in half) I basted the marinade on the hens while they were cooking. The flavor was incredible, and they came out moist and juicy.

Easy Chicken in Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2004
My entire family enjoyed this! SBD has been challenging at times, with four small children, so this was a nice meal. I used the boneless skinless thighs for the kids, and breasts for my DH and I. I also marinated the chicken overnight in the white wine (use real wine, not the stuff labeled cooking wine!! - cheap wine is better than that stuff), garlic and pepper. I grilled it, then added the marinade back in, and I really liked the flavor, as did my DH. I served this with wild rice, and it was really good.

Mocha Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
WOW! I started the SBD almost two weeks ago, and one thing I cut out was my once a week stop at Starbucks. This yummy treat reminds me of a frappaccino! I couldn't find the expresso powder at my local grocer, so I used instant decalf coffee. Also, I didn't have cocoa powder on hand, so I used 3/4 tsp of chocolate extract. This is definately my new SBD favorite dessert.

Chocolate Strawberry Banana Milkshake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
This is fairly simple to change to a low carb, low sugar drink. I substituted non-fat half and half for the milk, and splenda for the table sugar. I used 1 packet of splenda, since I find it to be very sweet. I also used baking cocoa, rather thank chocolate drink mix, and it was yummy. You do have to blend this very well with these changes, but if you're on a low carb, low sugar diet, this is fabulous.

Vanilla Milkshake II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
This was DELICOUS! I used Vanilla Bean ice cream, as it's my families favorite, and I had it on hand. I agree, the half and half really gives this a creamy, smooth texture. I have four kids, six and under, and the three oldest did not have an issue with the vanilla extract. We will definately be making this again.

Cucumber Sandwiches II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
Two hours before my friends baby shower, the hostess calls and asks if I can bring something, as someone else had to back out. These were fast, and everyone loved them! I couldn't find the cocktail rounds (and I was in a hurry!), so I used dill rye, quartered. The dill accent was just wonderful! I doubled the recipe, but could have trippled it, these went over so well. Looking forward to serving these at my next get together!

Try another one. This one just did not have the creamy flavor I was looking for.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
These were delicous! The only change I will make, is to used shredded beef the next time I make them, simply because my husband would prefer it, and I think it would taste delious too. Even my kids gobbled these down!

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
This was OK. Didn't have enough flavor for my taste, despite the fact I used the same green enchilada sauce I use for traditional style enchiladas. My husband loved them though.

Bread Machine Calzone

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
This was yummy! Everyone gobbled it up, and it was a hit with the kids. My store was out of pizza sauce, so I used spaghetti sauce instead (Prego) and the flavor was still really nice. I added 1 clove of crushed garlic to the bread machine for a little more flavor, and will definately do so again when I make it next. It really only added a hint of garlic to the bread, but it was tasty.
