Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I really like the base of this recipe, but I made some changes to make it healthier. I made my own cream of celery soup to cut down on sodium, fat, and other additives found in canned soup. Very easy to do, by the way. I also shredded red potatoes and kept the skin on for extra vitamins instead of pre-packaged hash browns. Used low-fat sour cream, but I did stay true to the recipe and used full-fat cheese and added the onions, but only used about 1/3 of a cup since they're not the healthiest. Made a side of steamed green beans and voila! The dish was tasty and can easily be altered here and there to fit individual preferences.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
So good! I was worried my husband wouldn't appreciate the flavors, but he ate it and went back for seconds! I used vegetable flavored reduced fat cream cheese and decided not to fry the tortillas and the dish was delicious even with healthier substitutions. Will definitely make again!

Zucchini Alfredo

SOOO good! The only change I made was I used fat-free cream cheese instead of regular and olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Delish and healthy!

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Oh my goodness! So good and SOO easy to make. For sake of time, I used two cans of apple pie filling, omitted the water, and cut the amount of brown sugar to 1/2 cup instead of a cup (since the pie filling has enough sugar to compensate). Next time I will try it w/ fresh apples, as I'm sure that will taste even better, but can't say enough good things about this dessert!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I made these for a cookie exchange last year and they were a big hit! This year I'm making them for another cookie exchange except I've decided to use dried cherries in place of cranberries and I added white chocolate chips. Very pretty and festive looking cookies! And they're delicious!!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I love this recipe, albeit I keep altering it a bit every time I make it. I use olive oil but my I actually omitted it completely in my latest batch of tortillas. I make my tortillas w/ 5 cups of whole wheat flour, 2 tsp salt, and enough boiling water to give me a nice doughy consistency (probably closer to 2 cups to make up for the missing EVOO). This makes for a delicious, healthy, low-fat, soft tortilla!

Jamaican Beans and Rice Dish

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars and only b/c the adjustments I made produced a really yummy dish. I didn't even attempt to use the original recipe after reading the comments. I turned this into a one-pot meal and it was quick, easy, and fabulous! Here's my recipe: 2 cups water 1 cup uncooked brown rice 1 cup coconut milk (or go ahead and use a whole can which = 2 cups) 1 can red beans (or kidney beans) 3 cloves garlic, chopped 1/4 C. green onion 2 Tbsp. sugar 1 tsp. dried thyme 1 tsp. curry powder Put all ingredients in a pot, bring to a boil, and cook until rice is tender (and liquid has reduced)--about 20-30 mins. Voila! I omitted the chile pepper b/c I wasn't sure if it would be too spicy for my kids, but I may try a small amount next time (or add a small can of green chiles). Tasted delicious!

Waldorf Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
I love this tuna salad! I made a few changes to suit my tastes (and what I had on hand) and to zip it up a tad. I substituted dried cranberries for dates (not a big fan of dates!) and almonds in place of walnuts. Didn't have any plain yogurt so I used non-fat vanilla and it worked out great. I also added green grapes, red bell pepper, red onion, sweet dill relish, dijon mustard, curry powder, salt, and pepper (all in small amounts just to enhance the flavor). Served on lettuce and it was delish!

Mexican Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
I love this dish! It is so versatile and can be used a thousand ways. I used all fresh ingredients and added red onion and feta cheese. Next time I think I'll add black beans and couscous so it's a complete meal. I think this would make a great filler for tacos (with or without meat), burritos, etc. Delish!!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Delicious! I added grapes, apple, and red onion to mine. I spread it on a whole wheat tortilla, topped it w/ feta cheese, and popped it in the oven (at 350) for about 5 minutes. Awesome!

Delicious Ahi Fish Burgers with Chives

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Awesome! I made a few changes to suit my preferences and followed a few suggestions from others. Used my food processor to chop/blend and added a zucchini, green bell pepper (red would taste fab too!), onion (yellow b/c that's what I had on hand), carrots, two garlic cloves, dill, soy sauce (low-sodium), pepper, and Ahi. I omitted the salt since the soy sauce had enough salt and used one egg white instead of two eggs. I eyeballed all the amounts and just made sure the consistency in the end resembled hamburger meat. The end result was divine! Will definitely make again!!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
I thought this was a great yeast-less, homemade crust. I made a few substitutions and followed some of the recommendations and was really pleased with how it turned out. First, I used whole-wheat flour and added at least another 1/2-1 cup to the recipe so it was more firm and less moist. I omitted the second egg, added 1 tsp baking poweder, put in about 1-2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning, then pressed into a well-greased 11 x 13 baking sheet. I only needed to cook it for about 8 mins, then pulled it out and spread olive oil on top; then topped with tomato sauce, mozarella cheese, mushrooms, onions, fresh garlic and basil, tomatoes, green bell pepper, and olives. I then popped it in the oven again but used the broiler instead since my crust was already cooked enough and I was afraid I'd burn it. I might try cooking the crust for 5 or 6 mins next time, then add my toppings, then cook for about 8-10 mins at 400 next time to see how that goes. The crust was thin but sturdy...held all the toppings really well and had a great flavor. My hubby really liked it and both kids gobbled it up. A great, healthy alternative to traditional pizza crust. I'll definitely be making this again! FYI...definitely follow the recommendations of adding more flour, omit the second egg, and add baking powder. The original recipe does seem to be a little moist. Oh, and don't forget to spray your pan...otherwise you'll be scraping it out of the pan.

Summer Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I thought this was a wonderful recipe. I substituted ground beef for tofu and it came out delicious. I didn't have cottage cheese on hand and it still was tasty. Just crumbled the tofu and mixed the egg in with it. I also used fresh basil on each layer (on top of the mozarella)instead of adding it to the veggies. It was fabulous and I'll be making it again and again.

Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
Awesome! I made a few adjustments to suit what I had on hand and general preferences and these came out delicious (and the kiddies ate them up!). Used brown sugar, maple syrup, and honey to sweeten the batter (no white sugar)and put whole oats in since I didn't have oat flour. I'm trying to finish up what's left of my white flour but next time I will try w/ just wheat flour and oats. Had no apple sauce but the batter tasted fabulous without it so I don't think I'll add it next time. Also used lemon flavored yogurt instead of plain for a twist but I bet vanilla flavor would be divine too! I used shredded zucchini and carrot and added some dried cranberries. Thanks for the recipe. It's wonderful!
