Simple Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
Really bland. I used garlic cream of mushroom soup and doubled the cheese--no flavor at all. The only thing that made it edible was the salt I added. Won't be making again.

Fifteen Minute Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I usually hate chili, but this is sooo good and so easy. I even found myself sneaking spoonfuls of it cold. Mmm, I will definitely make again!

Nic's Easiest, Creamiest Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
I was looking for a way to make low-fat mac and cheese, and this is definitely it! Didn't taste low-fat at all, and even better than regular mac and cheese in a box made with tons of butter. It was, indeed, very creamy and VERY simple and cheap to make. Not only that, but the servings were pretty big. I ended up using cream of mushroom, because that was what I had on hand, and it was pretty good. Next time I will try the cream of chicken, or maybe even cream of brocolli. I do suggest adding the 1/4 cup of milk, as it may be a bit gooey without it. This is the way I will be making boxed mac and cheese from now on.

Vanilla Ice Cream VIII

Reviewed: May 13, 2005
Not bad at all. Great flavour and very easy to make. Not all that creamy, but still a cool, low-fat, satisfying treat. I'd still perfer ice cream or frozen yogurt though...

Baked Pancake Squares

Reviewed: May 5, 2005
Pretty good. I used whole wheat flour in mine, because I love whole grain pancakes. I also used 1 egg instead of the substitute, because I didn't have any on hand. The best part is how easy they are to make! I always tend to mess up regular pancakes, and this is much less hassle to deal with. Next time I think I'll try them with blueberries...

Cheesy Quesadilla

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
I make these all the time, except w/o salsa (because I never have any on hand...). 2% Pepperjack cheese is the best. I HIGHLY suggest not microwaving them, put cooking them in a nonstick skillet. It gives you a nice crisp tortilla rather than a soggy one. =(

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
These turned out really good. Better than I had hoped! They went perfect with my turkey burger. After reading other reviewer's problems with them sticking to the pan, I decided to use parchment paper. I highly recommend this. I also used reduced fat parmesean and garlic salt rather than regular. They're so easy to make, too! The hardest part was slicing the potatoes, and I accomplished that before my oven was even finished preheating. I'll use this one again.

Worry Free Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I liked this recipe a lot! It was easy and inexpensive to make, and quite tasty. It didn't turn out creamy though, more of the consistancy of ice milk I suppose. The only complaint I have is the colour--yellowy rather than white. Oh well. May try with splenda next time to reduce the calories.

Lighter Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
These were *so* good. More cake-like than the high-fat version, but still just as tasty. Make sure you watch them so they don't burn. They'll still look like they need to go back in the oven for a couple of minutes when they're done as they don't brown as much as a regular cookie (check the bottoms). I ended up baking mine for about 6 minutes, and they were perfect. I'll make this one again.

Granny's Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
You'd never guess this was made w/o an ice cream freezer. The flavor and texture are wonderful. I added candy pieces to it and also 2 Tbsp. of cocoa for chocolate ice cream. I also made it low-fat by adding fat-free sour cream and used powdereded egg whites instead of raw ones. Unbelievably creamy for low-fat! Just don't do like I did and make the mistake of not stirring it enough.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
Definitley one of my favorite recipes! I've made it several times and my family loves it (and they freak out anytime I'm in the kitchen whipping up something 'healthy'). I like to use 1/2 wheat and 1/2 white flour, add vanilla, double the cinnamon, and add a pinch of both nutmeg and cloves. The fact that there is no fat from oil or butter means I can add in my own goodies. Try 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts--delicious! I usually bake it the night before and wrap it in aluminum foil. It does tend to be a bit chewy the next morning, but for some reason after 24 hours the texture is much like that of regular banana bread. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!

Creamy Guilt-Free Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
Good recipe. Definitely not as rich and creamy as the full-fat fudge, but still a nice chocolatey treat for those watching their fat and calories (Even my boyfriend liked it, and he frowns upon anything low-fat). Also, I think the trick to not ending up with rock-hard fudge is to not leave it on the burner too long. Melt it until there are no lumps remaining, then pour it into the pan. The best part of this recipe is how easy it is to make! It took a matter of minutes to prepare, and only a couple of hours to set up completely. Give 'er a try!!

Vanilla Ice Cream VI

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
This recipe was pretty good. I cut it down to 8 servings to make 1 quart, since that's all I can fit in my tiny hand-cranked ice cream maker. I used pasturized egg substitute rather than the raw eggs, which I was a little weary of using. I also cut the fat by using 2% and skim evaporated milk. I admit that the texture was a little on the grainy side because of this, but not too bad. It also froze up in the freezer quite nicely. My boyfriend told me this ice cream was as good as his grandma's, which is quite a complement! This one's a keeper!

Banana Chip Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
Delicious! Everyone who tried one loved them. You definitely won't miss the fat. I used white chocolate chips, one whole egg instead of two egg whites, a full teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of both nutmeg and cloves. I also made these into huge muffins that rose up over the top of the pan, and ended up with 8 muffins instead of 12. I'll definitel make them again!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
I printed this recipe out for my mother to make. These were great! So much tastier than a regular high-fat beef burger. I grilled the leftover meat on the George Foreman grill. I'll definitely make these again!

Banana Chip Muffins I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
My new favorite banana muffin recipe! I used 1 full teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg and cloves to spice it up a little. I also used white chocolate chips, which I think made then taste better than with regular. Since I love huge muffins that rise up over the pan, I made this into 8 muffins instead of 12. Everyone who tried one loved these! Will definitely make again.

Egg-Free Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
I really enjoy this easy-to-make recipe, and have made it several times in the past. They are strange and texture--not like that of a high-fat oatmeal cookie, but still delicious. They are moist and cake-like, and not chewy like most low-fat cookies tend to be. I highly recommend not leaving out the walnuts or raisins, they make all the difference in texture and sweetness. I like to use dried cranberries in place of the raisins. I'll be making these over and over again and again!
