Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I'm adding my voice to the list of those who loved this. People raved about it and asked for the recipe. I changed just a few things. I used canned yams for convience, I cut back on the sugar, increased the amount of spices (used double the cinniman, added nutmeg and ginger, and used twice the amount of pecans in the topping. I used Splenda, Eggbeaters, and light margerine instead of the high calorie, high fat ingredients. I used two 40 oz. cans of yams and the equivalent of three eggs and had to bake it for about 40-45 minutes, but I left it in a 9 x 13 pan.

Party Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Excellent. I brought this to a Thanksgiving pot luck and people raved about it. I made too much (the recipe makes a LOT) and people were fighting over who would get to take the leftovers home. One guest took enough to serve at a brunch she was hosting the next day. I followed another poster's suggestion and added a topping of sour cream, vanilla, sugar, and cream cheese. It was very good the first day, but got watery the second day. I would wait and add that just before serving if you decide to do it. I left out the walnuts because I didn't have any, but I think it would have been even better with them.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I love this stuff. It is so low calorie and so good! You can add whatever you feel like too. I make a big pot of it and freeze half. It's wonderful for snacks and lunches, if you have a microwave at work. I always make Golden Sweet Cornbread from this site when I make this.

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This is really good. I followed one of the other poster's advice and added curry along with other spices. My husband absolutely loves it. I've screwed up before and forgotten the bread crumbs and the cheese and just sprinkled those ingredients on the chicken in the pan and it's still good! One of the best.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
You can't beat this cake for simplicity and tastiness. I've made it twice, the first time I followed the recipe exactly, like that's hard! And it was very good, especially considering how low in calories it is. The second time, I splurged and added a cup of shredded coconut to the batter, and some vanilla extract. I iced the cake with a canned cream cheese frosting mixed with more shredded coconut, a few drops of yellow food coloring and a teaspoon or so of coconut extract. I sprinkled a cup or so of chopped and toasted peacans. Yum! I'm sure that my diet is in shambles, but it is worth it! Hello cake, good bye waistline!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
This sounded much better than it was. There wasn't enough spinach, even though I more than doubled the amount called for, and even with the red pepper and feta, it was bland. It was okay, but not great, by any means.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
This is very good and easy to make. I lighten it up by using non fat Miracle Whip instead of mayo. My Mother-in-Law gave me a rare compliment about this dish. I make it quite frequently in the winter.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
I really like this. I dredge the tofu in egg like some of the other posters, but otherwise, I follow the recipe just as it's written. Very, very good!

Curried Microwaved Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
This was a tasty weeknight dish. I made it with bone in thighs on the stove top. I sauted the onions and the apple in butter, then added the chicken. I followed another poster's advice and waited until the chicken had about 15 minutes left and added the soup, half and half, and curry. I really like the taste of curry, so next time I will use more. I used healthy request cream of mushroom soup, half and half and canned mushrooms. It thickened up nicely. I think it would be a really fast easy recipe with boneless thighs or breast, if you just reduce the cooking time. I made minute rice and put the curry sauce on top.

Angel Cake Surprise

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
This was pretty tasty. I used strawberries, the bananas and pineapple, and made the pudding mix with non-fat milk. It was pretty good, especially considering how low in calories it is.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
Really good and really easy. I only used half the chili powder called for, because I'm a spice wuss, and I only had regular flour, so that's what I used. I actually screwed up and added the chili powder too early, but if it made a difference, I didn't notice it. I used this sauce on the shredded beef enchiladas from this site. Very good!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
I really liked these enchiladas. I didn't find them to be that time consuming, but I started with having some shredded beef and looking for a way to cook it, so I didn't spend time on that. Next time, I'll start from the beginning because my meat was not prepared according to the recipe, and it sounds really good! I changed a fewv things. I used non-fat flour tortillas, as that's all I had. I didn't use oil, but I made some enchilada sauce from this site called 10 minute enchilada sauce. Instead of the oil, I poured some sauce in the pan and covered both sides of the tortilla with the sauce. Then I followed the recipe with the cheese sauce and the meat. I only had low fat sour cream, and it was fine. Also, I didn't have any onions, so they were left out. Anyway, I poured the left over sauce on top and covered it with cheese. I'm not sure how much, and it wasn't the kind called for in the recipe. It was a combination of grated mexican cheese, mozarella, and some irish cheese. (Can you tell I was cleaning out the fridge?) Anyway, it was absoultely great!!!!! Next time, I'll shop for the recipe and do it right. Edited to add: I made this again. I put all the ingredients for the beef in a crockpot for 8 hours on low. The flavor of the meat is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I found myself eating the meat as I rolled the enchiladas and there is none left over! YUM! One more thing, I ran out of cheese sauce before I ran out of meat, so I would double the cheese sauce.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
Wowser!! This was GOOD! I followed the recipe, except that I used tablespoons of all the spices and I only had plain bread crumbs, so I added a tablespoon of poultry spice as well. Yum, yum, yum. I served it with Cowboy Mashed Potatoes from this site.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I changed this up quite a bit. I sliced green bell peppers and red onions and sauted them in olive oil, along with a can of sliced mushrooms. I tore the chicken breasts up and warmed them along with the veggies. I used 2 Bobili pizza crusts, added about half a bottle of BBQ sauce to each and topped them with the sauted veggies and chicken. I sprinkled cilantro on top (no where NEAR 1/2 a cup) just some, and then topped it with shredded cheese. Baked for ten minutes at 375 and it was very good! I think the key to this is to use the ingredients you like in the quantities that you like. Very versitile and yummy.

Easy Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
This wasextremely easy and really good with just a few changes. I use two cans of chicken breast, a can of sliced mushrooms, and two jars of light alfredo sauce. I put a little olive oil in the pan, add some garlic, fry it a little, add the chicken and mushrooms, spice it up with salt, pepper, basil leaves, and some Emeril's Italian Essence, and heat it through. Then I add the sauce and simmer. I use angel hair pasta,only half a pound, and after I add the pasta to the boiling water I blanch a cup or two of fresh broccoli for just a minute and add it to the pan with the sauce. That's it! My family loves it and it only takes about 15 or 20 minutes. Very tasty!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I lightened this up quite a bit. I used Splenda, and cut that back to a cup and a half, fat free sour cream, and light margarine. It was still really good. I used walnut s instead of pecans because that's all I had. I also used almost an entire bag of frozen blueberries. I only have a ten inch bundt pan, so the cake wasn't very high, but it didn't make a difference. My husband and I ate half of it in one sitting. Excellent!

Orange Roughy with Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2005
This has been by far my favorite seafood recipe from this site. I used talapia, as I didn't have any orange roughy, and I didn't have any orange juice, but I did have some left over salsa from grilled swordfish with citrus salsa. So I measured out tablespoons of the juice from that, added some basil (didn't have parsley)and minced onion (no green onions). I doubled the sauce, and it was just enough for 4 filets. I added some of the flour that I dredged the fish in at the end to thicken it up. It was just the BEST!!

Poppy Seed Dressing I

Reviewed: May 28, 2005
This is excellent. I used on a salad of spring greens with maderin oranges and roasted almonds. I did add some lime juice and cut down a bit on the poppy seeds. The second time I made it I doubled the recipe so I would have some for later. Really good, especially if you're on a diet.
