The Munroe Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
That's a great sandwhich! I wasn't sure what "prepared dijon mustard and mayonnaise blend" was, so I used dijon on one side and Smart Balance mayo on the other. Wonderful taste and texture; the tomato keeps it from being too dry. Defintely a keeper!

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
Caution: these brownies will make you lose all self-control and probably derail any diet you're on. You've been warned! They're fantastic! Fudgey and rich, just like brownies should be. I took the advice of other members and reduced the eggs to four egg whites. I also used about 3/4 C butter (I ran out) and substituted chocolate chips for walnuts. 30 minutes was sufficient baking time. I recommend eating these warm out of the oven; the sides are crispy and the inside is amazing.

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
A good starter / idea base for pico de gallo. I agree with other reviewers that this recipe needs lime juice. I used the juice from one small (almost key lime) lime and felt it was the right amount. I used more cilantro, double the garlic powder, and threw in another half tomato. I also used all green onions. Keep in mind that the yield is relatively small. It's so good people will gobble it down quickly, so I suggest doubling it! Many people eat this with chips, but I like it alone as a side salad.

California Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
Simple, fresh taste; easy to adjust flavors for any palate. This recipe makes enough for four SMALL sandwhiches. Double the ingredients if you are using full-sized bread or want a very hearty sandwhich.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Wow! I wish I could eat all my vegetables this way! This is some of the best bread I've ever tasted! It's very much like chocolate cake. Excellent all around. I used 6 egg whites, only 1.5 C white sugar, and olive oil to make it more healthy. Don't be stingy with the chocolate chips, though -- they make it! Absolutely heavenly eaten warm!

Caribbean Crabmeat Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Tasty and a good alternative to traditional salad dressing based pasta salads. I don't think the hour in the fridge made any difference.

Asian-Style Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
Overall, a pretty good recipe. The ingredients take a little "eyeballing" as every zucchini is a different size. We used poppyseeds because we didn't have sesame. We also used olive oil to make it more healthy.

Soft Breadsticks

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I found these lacking in flavor. They weren't bad, but they weren't anything special. The dough was a bit sticky. I ended up rolling them instead of cutting them into strips. I also found them to be quite crunchy after 14 minutes, so they weren't soft at all!

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.
