Iced Tea II

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
i cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and added it while boiling the water. i also used regular-flavored tea bags (although i'm sure orange pekoe would be divine). very good!

Salmon Cakes III

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
i agree that the salmon NEEDS to be drained. (however, i didn't realize it was only supposed to make 4 patties. i formed 8. maybe that's why they were mushy?) great taste ... i used penzey's black and red pepper to get a little cayenne in there.

Delicious Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
easy and delicious. i made this with boneless, skinless breasts. instead of rubbing with oil, i sprayed them with cooking spray. this is also good served cold the next day. would be good over a salad.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
i used 4.5 (one was small) yukon potatoes, cut them into smaller pieces w/ skin on, added them to a ziploc with the oil and the spices, and then mixed. i actually just used penzey's seasoned salt, which had all of the spices listed in this recipe, but unfortunately, i used way too much -- 4 tsp. it was quite salty (my own fault for just adding up the other quantities on the original). next time i'd use 2 tsp. and go from there. despite being too salty, they were fantastic and the original recipe is probably perfect.

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
this was tasty but salty. i'd probably omit the salt next time. i used herbes de provence instead of sage. also, i used penzey's black and red (black pepper and cayenne), just 1/2 tsp total. it still had quite a kick. i omitted the yeast as well (didn't have any). served with steamed broccoli.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
i messed up this recipe and it still came out great. first of all, i scaled it down for 2 servings. it cooked for about a half hour. i forgot to grease the baking dish (still came out fine) and forgot to season with salt/pepper (added at the end). i took the advice of warming the dish first (didn't help) and using corn flakes (was great!) i also eyeballed the dijon mustard, adding a tiny bit more. we both enjoyed it.

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
i did not like this at all. it wasn't because of the vinegar but because of an overall blandness. my husband salvaged his piece with lots of extra garlic salt. i won't be making this again. it might be better on other parts of the chicken but the breasts were just too bland.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
these were yummy but they did stick to the muffin liners, despite what some others have stated. mine were done after about 15 minutes and i hadn't put the topping on yet, so i turned off the oven, put the topping on, then put them back in the oven and let them sit for 3 minutes or so. also, i used oil instead of butter as some suggested, and i added extra cinnamon because i love cinnamon!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
loved it. changes: i used 28 oz. of crushed tomatoes, a small can of sweet corn, a shake or two of cumin, and doubled the chili powder. i subbed kidney beans for one of the cans of black beans (just for variety). this made probably 7 or 8 large servings.

Greek Pasta Salad III

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
i swapped cucumbers for the mushrooms and cut the oil/vinegar down to 1/4 cup each. very easy and delicious. i served it with crusty bread. it made about 4 servings.

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
i doubled the recipe as was suggested and added a handful of shredded carrots. it was great! very easy. i made it in a loaf pan in the toaster oven, 350 for 40 minutes. also, i omitted the red pepper (the ones at the store looked gross) and doubled the yellow. next time i'll try leaving out 1 egg.

Herbed Sweet 'n' Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
my husband and i both liked it. made it with brown rice. i omitted the cayenne b/c i'm not a spice fan. also eyeballed the allspice and pepper. i used a little less oil than it called for and could probably do even less next time ... it's got plenty.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
made a combo of the suggestions here. i used 3 boneless, skinless breasts. i reduced the margarine by half and used smart balance. i used dijon instead of regular mustard. i used one teaspoon of curry and 1/2 a teaspoon of garam masala. i omitted the salt. baked 30 mins covered with foil, then 20 uncovered. it was fab! served with brown rice and a salad.

Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
made this in the crockpot with salsa instead of picante (they're pretty much the same thing). it was a bit dry, but that could be from the crock pot. would be great shredded in burritos.

Chinese-Style Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
slight changes: i put about half a cup of water and the broccoli in a covered dish and microwaved it for about 4 minutes. in a small bowl, i made the dressing, using half the sesame oil (only because i ran out) and half the salt. then i drained the broccoli and poured the dressing into the dish and mixed. it was great!

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
made a lot of changes and it was pretty good (although my husband wasn't into it). i sprayed the baking pan with oil. i put the chicken in a ziploc and added soy sauce to it, then mixed to coat. this worked well. per the reviews, i doubled the sesame seed mixture, which may have been too much, and i added a bit of onion powder and garlic powder. i should have omitted the salt (soy sauce has plenty, even though i used low-sodium). i also omitted the butter.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
i liked this a lot, but instead of teriyaki (which i thought i had on hand but apparently didn't), i used more lite soy sauce and a tiny bit of sesame oil. i'd say if you don't have sesame seeds, you can leave them out without compromising taste. also, i lightly sprayed the pan with oil spray rather than the amount it called for.

Tamra's Microwave Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
this was a bit bland. the only thing i did differently was to use dried tarragon instead of fresh. we sprinkled penzey's 4S seasoned salt on it and that helped. it was definitely fast, and if you're OK with adding spices after tasting it, this is a good, quick dish.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
this was great. i didn't have celery salt so i omitted it, used half the regular salt, and used olive oil instead of canola. my garlic salt also had parsley in it (mccormick's) but i still added the parsley the recipe called for as well. it wasn't too much, tasted great.

Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
these are very crumbly and cake-like. if you're expecting a granola-bar-type taste, this isn't it. however, it's a simple recipe and nice to not have to use the oven.
