Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
My mother in law made these once - without the extra chocolate drizzle on the top. She used Rolo candies and they were WONDERFUL. She does weight watchers and said they were only one point each! So they are a nice snack, assuming that you don't eat 10 at a time! Which is very well something you may want to do.

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Yum... I really liked the flavor of this fish... I made a couple of little changes. 1. I used Cod instead of tilapia; 2. I didnt use the whole packet of ranch - I reserved a little bit and sprinkled it over some sauted asparagus. It went great with the fish!

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
These were the fluffiest potatoes I have ever eaten! It is amazing if you just let them cook slower! I found this recipe sometime around August, and have only made my baked potatoes this way since!

Lobster de Jonghe

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Yum... This was great! I used imitation lobster meat that I put in a food processor for a second or two to dice up but it was FANTASTIC either way! We will definately make this again, it was definatly something different for dinner. But for those of you thinking about cutting back on the butter, really dont! I used a reduced fat Country Crock to help curb the calories, but the butter really makes the dish!

Pickle Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Yum. My husband loved this. It was a very unique lunch. The only thing I changed was I used fat free sour cream and added a little bit of package ranch mix to punch up the flavor. This will be a normal for lunch rotation!

Crab Crusted Grouper

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
Great flavors! Unfortunately, I couldnt find Grouper so I used some fresh Mahi Mahi that I had in the fridge. Turned out GREAT. My husband ate his and half of mine! Will definately make again!

Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Wow! I havent ever had a lobster bisque, let alone made one so this was a nice first try! I did add some pepper about 1/4 cup parmesean cheesse and did half crab half lobster (and all I had was imitation). It came out fantastic (even with the imitation). We served it with some baguettes and loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!

Pork Tenderloin alla Napoli

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
OH MY GOD! I doubled the sauce recipe, and put it over egg noodles just like others had suggested. I accidently put the creamn in it when I put it in the oven, it still turned out fantastic. This recipe is pretty much idiot proof if you follow it, and even turns out great when you dont read it correctly, like I did!

Flip Flop Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Wow. This was fantastic! I dont normally like peppers, but it really complimented the taste of the chicken. The only change I made to the recipe was I cut in in half, and also grilled the peppers on some foil and brushed it with the marinade mixture. This is definately going to go in the rotation!

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Definately loved these! Then again, anything with feta is fantastic! We made the recipe as-is and it had wonderful flavor. TIP: After removing the porkchops from the skillet, mix in about a tablespoon of water and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the skillet and stir around the drippings - heat to a boil... and then pour that into some already cooked white rice. It is a GREAT side dish with all the flavors of your pork chops.

Warm Goat Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
My husband LOVES these. He still makes them as a snack often. He likes to experiment with stuff to put in them. Most of the time, he leave it just the way it is.

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Nice.. We loved this recipe. I did make some changes as suggested by others. The drudging in flour before putting in the egg mixture (to which I added garlic powder). And instead of baking, I actually fried it with some olive oil (due to time constraints). I took this to lunch with the inlaws and they loved it (even my sister in law liked it until we told her it was eggplant - she is stupid like that). We will definately make this one again!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Wow.. 2 of my favorite things. I never thought to put them together. I omitted the spinach because I didn't have any at the time and I used jar alfredo sauce (my favorite kind). It was fantastic! We had a couple of friends over and they inhaled it too! Defintely a keeper.

Bruschetta II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
Awesome, awesome, awesome! I was taking this to a party so I couldn't stack it up like it suggested. Instead I mixed the pesto together with the tomatoes and cheese and served it with the toasted baguette pieces. It was FANTASTIC! It think my husband and I ate the entire bowl ourselves!

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Wow! Changes: Doubled Crab, Added a can of chopped artichokes, used fat free sour cream - cream cheese and mayo. This helped curb the calories because we (me and my husband) DID eat the entire thing (by ourselves)!

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
Yum... I also used low fat stuff and dried tomatoes instead of oil packed. We served it on toast with tomato soup! It was REALLY good!!!! We actually make a large batch of this using an entire container of pesto and 5 cans of tuna - then freeze it and pull it out when we want it. This is a REGULAR in our house. This is that one recipe that we are so thankful for! Trying 100 recipes to get this one was well worth it!

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Okay, so I really modified this recipe - but the core flavor is what I give a 5 stars. I dont like most beans - so what I did was substitute the beans with just ONE can of rinsed black beans and added 2 cans of FF chicken broth. This produced quite a bit of liquid so I thickened it a touch with some flour. But the way the flavors mixed together were fantastic! I really enjoyed this recipe and will definately make again.

Grandma's Chicken Chardon

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
Holy moly this was great! I did it a little different. Sliced some red potatoes and layered them on top of the mushrooms, poured the butter mixture on top of those (used half the amount of butter). Coated the chicken in the mixture and placed on top, then sprinkled remaining coating mixture on the entire thing. Covered up with foil half way through (didnt want it to dry out - and the potatoes needed a little help cooking). Anyway, it turned out FANTASTIC! I will definately make this many more times.
