Easy Layered Delight

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I wanted a quick through together dessert with ingredients I had in house so this fit the bill, however, the graham cracker dominated the taste and it was nothing special.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
My husband and 2 kids all spit this in the trash after tasting. I think that sums it up!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Tasty and will make again. Skipped liquid smoke and reduced vinegar to 1/8 cup. Per others, I removed most of the fat before cooking to reduce excess liquid fat on top. I added a cornstarch slurry to thicken sauce after I removed meat to shred, replaced, and then simmered for 1/2 hour more. Served on rolls with sharp cheddar.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
One of my favorite recipes on this site. I made 2 kahlua layers/1 plain and used lady fingers on the side of the cake to help with presentation.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I made this without bananas (they had gone bad) and it was still very good. I used reduced fat cream cheese and skim milk and you would never know. The recipe was a bit sweet with a whole can of condensed, you may want to cut back if you don't like your desserts overly sweet. Update: Made again and with the bananas this time and only 1/2 can of cond. milk. This recipe would be great w/ a layer of chocolate pudding to mimic Italian ice box cake. Next time...

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Quite possibly the best dessert I have ever made (and I have made thousands). Creamy, fresh, light, and just the right amount of sweetness. I subbed low fat coolwhip for the whipped cream and used 8 oz of regular cream cheese and 3 oz of the reduced fat. This was in an attempt to keep the fat content down. The flavor wasn't compromised at all! Per others suggestions I cooked down the strawberries with 1/3 cup of sugar and cornstarch and then partially pureed in the blender. The result was a strawberry sauce that was awesome. I actually made a double batch of this to freeze and serve later with strawberry shortcake. I layered the lady fingers, then cc mix, then strawberry sauce, and repeated. I topped with some sliced fresh strawberries for presentation. Perfection!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
I give this recipe 3 stars as written. You have to double the sauce on this recipe or you will have no extra sauce for over the rice. Also, 30 minutes made the chicken dried out, I think 20 would be adequate. I think it could be a 4 star with these modifications.

Springtime Strawberry Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Sweet and tasty. I skipped the lemon zest and used 1/4 t. of almond extract, this was a nice addition. I only used 1 cup of sugar and this was plenty. I think you could even go down to 3/4 cup of sugar on this one. The preserves add a lot of sweetness. Didn't have almonds and it was not missed.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Definitely a nice marinade. The only addition I added was 2 T. of lemon juice to act as a tenderizer and marinated a full 24 hours. I only used a 2 lb london broil but didn't cut back on the ingredients. Tender and flavorful!

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Very tender. FYI 425 degrees for 35 minutes would result in extemely rare piece of pork on a 2 lb tenderloin. I roasted my 1.25 lb tenderloin for 45 minutes before it was only slightly pink/done. Covered with foil 1/2 way through to prevent over browning.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
A keeper! Used 9 oz. cubed perdue shortcuts and pillsbury (unroll) crust, boy did this make it easy. I found the mix plenty moist, perhaps it was because I only had 9 ounces of chicken, but honestly I don't think I could have fit more mixture into the pie pan. Per others suggestion I prebaked the bottom crust for 5 minutes prior to adding mixture. There really is no need to change a thing on this one.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I have been dying to make these and was not disappointed. I halved the recipe but only used approx 1/4 of the onion soup envelope. I didn't want the taste to be too pungent and it was just perfect. I served on potato dinner rolls - WOW. I can't wait to make again and again. Update: I make these often now, just as good with ground turkkey meat (surprise, surprise) and added real bacon bits.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Kids loved! I used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 because this is what I keep in the house. It was still very rich but might have needed an extra T. of flour to thicken a bit more. I skipped the chopped onion and snuck in 1 T. onion powder in its place so the kids would eat. This recipe would be awesome with the addition of corn or served in a bread bowl. A hint of parmesan was added to the broth too.

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I've made this a few times now. I usually skip the extra cheese on top of the shells to keep the fat content down, it really isn't missed.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Oh Yes! Perfect coffee cake that is great for company. I used 1.5 cups of chocolate chips and substituted walnuts for pecans because this is what I had on hand. For the topping, per others suggestions, I used a combo of brown and white sugar and this worked well.

Lighter Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
My girls loved this and it was not bad for a lighter fat version. Mixed with seasoned brocolli. I only used 1/4 of butter, but I did add in some extra fat free half and half to compensate for the added brocolli. I didn't want it too dry. I skipped the garlic/onion addition because the kids won't eat this way, and it was fine. I will definitley make this again.

Finnish Kropser (Baked Pancakes)

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
So simple and so good. Baked 400 degrees 30-35 minutes in a 13x9 pan.. Only change I made was adding 1 t. vanilla. This is not a pretty dish but it is very flavorful for something so quick to throw together. Served with powdered sugar.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Bland and boring as written. I suppose the recipe has potential if extras were added such as cinnamon, raisins, and/or diced apple. I made this 1st attempt as stated but didn't add the butter to the topping to keep the fat content down. Not sure if I'd bother tweaking this one or just move on...

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Definitely one of the better chocolate cakes I ever made. Extremely moist, dense and flavorful. I only added 1 cup of choc. chips to the mix because others complained of the cake needing more baking time; 1 cup was plenty. I stuck with the 50 minute bake time too. For the glaze I used 'Satiny Choc. Glaze' from this site since I have used before and loved, and it requires only 3 T of butter, not 6 like this recipe. I subbed low fat sour cream too. Just some little tweaks in attempt to curb the monstrous fat and calories in this awesome cake.
