Pancho Villa Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Good taste and easy to make. I used more of each topping. Next time I'll remove the rinds from the lime slices because they left a little bitter taste. Bigger filets may require more than 20 minutes to bake.

Chocolate Mocha Liqueur Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Fantastic! Very moist. We followed a previous reviewer's advice and left out the oil in the recipe entirely. It came out just fine. I'm curious to hear reviews from people who used different combinations of chocolate / vanilla cake mix and chocolate / vanilla pudding. For the icing, we used Smart Balance spread instead of butter. The icing turned out runny but really added to the taste. We also nixed the vodka and used that much more kahlua. Next time I'll try the same recipe with Irish Cream.

Peachy Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Great as a main dish or as a dessert. FYI, 3.5 lbs is about 10 standard peaches. This recipe is kind to over-ripe or bruised ones, too. I used 2 1/2 C skim milk, adding this gradually to the food processor as I processed the peaches and ginger. This made the process easier, fluffed up the mixture, and added the right amount of liquid with far less calories than heavy cream. I also used 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger. A little cinnamon on top might also taste good.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
The name says it all. It's very hard to stop eating them! I used craisins instead of raisins (better taste, fewer calories). I also used half the amount of corn syrup; they taste fine but are crumbly as a result. This is a recipe you could easily play around with. You could add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate, mini marshmellows, or other dried fruit. Will definitely make again!

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Great taste; unique because of the orange. I used orange flavored craisins and pecan pieces. I think it's better with a little white chocolate drizzled on top. For crunchier biscotti, seperate after cutting and bake an additional 6-10 minutes. Use parchment paper! It turns out much better; it's worth the price.

Garlic Cheese Flatbread

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
This recipe is easier than it sounds! The second time I made it, I put minced garlic into the dough during needing. This made it require more flour, but really added to the flavor. I also suggest adding italian spice or additional cheese to the finished bread. I brushed it with olive oil instead of butter, which worked well. It seems like too much needless butter in my opinion.

Three Olive Spread

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
It's simple: if you like olives, you'll like this. I diced the olives before putting them in the blender, which made it easier. To cut calories and add flavor, I added the water the olives were packed in instead of olive oil. This turned out perfectly. I liked it best on crackers with a hint of onion.

Whole Wheat Maple Quick Bread

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
This is easy to make, satisfying, and has a good texture. However, it is just a little shy on taste. I'd add more maple syrup or cinnamon. A little cinnamon sugar on top would be perfect. I used fat free vanilla yogurt for sweetness, two egg whites, and skim milk to cut calories. FYI, the juice of one lemon is 2 -3 tablespoons. Thanks for the tip about putting foil on top. Definitely test the bread before fifty minutes.

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
Next time I would use less lemon juice; it overpowers the garlic. I left out the oil completely and the consistency is just fine. This can be made in a blender, it just takes a while. I recommend adding sliced tomato to the pita. Also, pita can be easily toasted by cutting it in half and putting each side in the toaster. This "wakes up" the flavor of the pita. Enjoy!

Spicy and Sweet Spinach

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
Good flavor -- more than a little spicy! A few helpful hints: 12 cups fresh spinach = 1 lb = 1/2 cups cooked spinach. So at the end of this recipe, you'll have about 1 1/2 cups of food. I used diced dried apples instead of golden raisins, and this worked well. You'll need a big pot in the beginning in order to hold all the spinach, but it whithers quickly.

Taco Bean Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Great reviews! It's very hearty and tasty. I don't have a slow cooker, so I heated it slowly over low heat in a regular pot. I recommend hearty chips because the dip is pretty heavy. Thank you for giving me a use for that Bean with Bacon soup I had!

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
Great! This is a vegetarian soup that will please non-vegetarians. Mild but satisfying flavor. We used a can of "Italian style" diced tomatoes with basil and oregano. This worked well. I'd like to try it with diced celery for a little crunch.

Corn Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
Good flavor, but I suggest including about three or four LESS cups of noodles. Next time I will also add a little milk to make it more creamy and less pasty. Bake for at least 30 minutes.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
Wow! What a soup! It came out a little too spicy for my taste -- but this is fixable. Use mild salsa, no chili powder, and chili beans that are not hot. I think the first 8 ingredients simmered together looked (and smelled) fantastic. I plan to do step one, add egg noodles, and enjoy it as a soup without the rest of the stuff! Enjoy!

Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
These definitely taste like healthy muffins. I personally would add more sweetener to the batter. A little brown sugar on top definitely helps.

Irish Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
I used olive oil instead of butter and it did NOT turn out at all. It was very oily. Hopefullly it's better with butter. If I made it again, I would add broccoli or some other vegetable and more cheese.

Caramel

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
I used International Delight Hershey's chocolate caramel flavored coffee creamer. I also used 1/2 C brown sugar. The taste is GREAT! The first time the caramel came out too soft, so I put it back in the pot and reboiled. It came out fine. (I never could get it to ball and flatten like the directions say.) Tip: use a bigger pot than you think! It expands and bubbles quite a bit, and if it overflows on the oven it's a real pain to get off. Also, be sure to butter the wax paper very well, or it will stick. Next time I'll spoon the mixture onto little pieces of wax paper before it cools. (Maybe buttered waxed paper in mini muffin tins would work?) This way you don't have the pain of cutting it and getting that waxed paper off before wrapping the individual pieces.

Smoked Sausage with Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I couldn't find smoked sausage, so I used artichoke chicken sausage. I used only 13 oz of sausage and felt it was plenty. I suggest doubling the tomatoes. Feel free to add other vegetables as well. This is a very quick dish -- the mixture will be ready by the time the pasta is!

Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
Excellent! Frosting is optional. Half the amount of frosting is sufficient; we even had some left over! I rolled the dough into round balls before baking to give them a nice smooth look.

Broccoli Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
Pretty blah; definitely needs more vegetables like mushrooms or tomatoes. Also needs salt and pepper. Consistency was pasty and none of the individual flavors stood out. Could be better with cheddar or colby jack cheese. Find a better recipe; they're out there!
