Mango Salsa Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I enjoyed this recipe as is and then of course made changes the second time around. First of all I feel like this recipe is all about the salsa and very little about the salmon. I started by brushing olive oil over the salmon and then sprinkling it with lemon pepper and dill. Next I made a mango sauce by adding the diced fruit of one mango into a small sauce pan and adding 1/2 c. cream and 1 Tbsp. lime juice. (Be careful not to curdle your cream.) When this was hot, I used my hand blender (a normal blender would work too) to blend this into a creamy sauce. I spooned this sauce over my grilled salmon and around on the plate and then scooped the salsa on top of that. For the salsa I reduced the amount of onion and garlic because these things tend to overpower the recipe for me. I also added a sliced avocado and the juice of half a lime. WOW what a great flavor. I know that I made a lot of changes, but I liked the recipe as is and I love it when I read a recipe that gets me thinking about how I can creatively make it even better. Thanks for the great recipe KASIAN.

Sweet Summer Fruit Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Fantastic dessert or appetizer. I will make this over and over. I did follow the advice of others and cut back on the sugar.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This is a fantastic recipe. I was so hungry that I forgot to add the cream cheese and it still tasted great. Then I added the cheese and it was just as great. (So if you want a little less fat, skip the cream cheese.) I listened to Jillybean and added a bouillon cube, pepper, garlic and sauteed mushrooms and served it over egg noodles. I didn't add extra salt though and I really don't recommend it. Wow, this was a super easy and super tasty meal that I will make often. It tasted even better the next day.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe. It isn't one of my absolute favorites but I've been looking for a healthy munching snack and here it is. It has wonderful flavor, and is very unique. I like garlic, but next time I will cut it way back because it seemed to over take the dish instead of compliment it. The only unhealthy thing in this dish is the salt, so don't add it. It doesn't need it. I also zested the lime into the salsa and added much more than 2 Tbs. of lime juice. I'm almost embarrassed to say that this dish introduced me to one of my new favorite fruits. I never had a mango before trying this salsa. They are fantastic. I didn't quite know how to prepare one, so I did what any modern woman would do. I googled it. If you need some help in this area too try this YouTube site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qd7onfkw1iU&feature=related Thanks for the great healthy recipe Fhiveshot.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Side dishes are too often overlooked. Main dishes can be a lot of work so it is nice to find a side dish that is both easy and tasty. Thanks for the recipe and the new way to fix an old favorite.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
This was a nice and easy side dish. Due to high blood pressure I used lightly salted cashews and two tablespoons of worcestershire sauce in place of the three tablespoons of soy sauce. It was still a tasty dish and the sodium levels were much more acceptable.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
WOW! This was amazing. This recipe is easy and it will not disappoint you. I've been trying recipe after recipe to find a home made chicken tenders recipe that I like. I love tenders dipped in honey, but when I go out to a restaurant for them the sodium levels are so high somebody like me who is watching their sodium intake due to blood pressure runs into many problems. With this recipe I was able to control the sodium by using low sodium saltines and a sodium free seasoning mixture and still spoil myself with some outstanding tenders. I can't get over how tasty and crispy these were. I'm wondering--- can anybody tell me how long would I deep fry the pieces if I choose to make bone in fried chicken with this breading? Thank you so much CASSJW for an outstanding recipe. I will make it often.

Fresh Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
This was so easy and really tasty. It was great as is and then I made some adjustments and liked it even better. I used low sodium chicken broth in place of water, added two cloves of garlic and as onion in place of the shallot that I didn't have. I also added a handful of spinach. While this was boiling I sliced two carrots into circles and boiled them for a few minutes in the microwave until they softened. I added half of the boiled carrots to the peas when they were finished boiling and then I used my immersion mixer to blend it all up well. I did not strain it (I like my pea soup thicker). Finally, after pouring the soup into a bowl, I added the rest of the boiled carrot circles and a dollop of sour cream. This was so fast, easy and tasty that I will make it often.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I decided that I need to get some healthy fresh spinach into my life, so I bought my first bag and started looking for recipes on Allrecipes. I had to make some changes due to what was in the house, but the flavor blend of this recipe was great. I omitted the blue cheese to make it healthier and instead of making the dressing I simply added some dijon mustard to some raspberry vinaigrette dressing that I had on hand. This salad was so tasty and healthy. I will make it over and over again.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

This has an excellent flavor. I made it as is and would not change a thing. Be sure to allow the champagne to reduce long enough.

Greek Lamb Kabobs with Yogurt-Mint Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Not real fond of this recipe. Way too many flavors rolled into one. I like the taste of lamb, but the sherry vinegar seemed to take over. I wouldn't make this one again.

Blueberry Waffles with Fast Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
This was difficult to rate because it is actually two recipes. I don't have a waffle maker so I didn't make the waffles. Instead I am rating only the sauce. WOW! This is one of those recipes that you get so excited to find (if you are a cooking geek like myself). What a healthy alternative to syrup on your pancakes. I tried it on ice cream and once again the taste was outstanding. I don't care to eat just plain blueberries, but they are so good for you that I wanted to find a way to fit them into my diet. I actually make this recipe once or twice a week now and spread it over my regular oatmeal in the morning. If you have high blood pressure this is a great substitution for the packets of flavored oatmeal. I went from 340 mg of sodium in two packets of Quaker Apple and Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal to 4mg by making regular oatmeal and adding this great sauce for amazing flavor. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us.

Watermelon Margarita

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
If you like watermelon you will enjoy this drink. Great tasting as is or add a touch of Midori Melon for another yummy taste. I did not bother double straining the drink because I don't mind bits of watermelon floating around. (I just picked out any of the little white seeds that made it through.) I also chilled the shaker in the freezer and added a few ice cubes to the liquid in the shaker. Can't wait to share this one with friends.

Curried Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
This was a good recipe. I wouldn't say wow or amazing, but I enjoyed it and will make it again. It is very easy and pretty healthy if you use light mayo. I tried it as is for one of the muffins and with Dubliner cheese for the other one. I liked the cheddar, but I enjoyed the Dubliner much more. (Though I am a huge fan of this cheese.) Thanks for the recipe.

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I made this recipe as is and found it very tender and tasty. I kept some of the sauce aside instead of using it with the meat and I heated it with melted butter as the meat finished grilling. To serve I sliced the pork in thin slices and drizzled the sauce over top. This was very enjoyable and I will definitely make it again.

Skillet Green Beans

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I always have a difficult time finding simple yet tasty side dishes, so when I find one, I don't hesitate to give it five stars. I made this recipe as is the first time (with the exception of using fresh beans) and loved it. The second time I added bacon bits and loved it even more. Thanks for the recipe.

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I really liked the final outcome of this soup, but I will admit, I did make a lot of changes based on some others' suggestions. I added 2/3 c. Pace mild salsa with the tomatoes. I used three 14 oz. cans of beef broth in place of the water and chicken broth. I also added a bit of cumin and about 1/2 tsp. chili powder. Next time I think I will also add some beef. This was very healthy, very tasty, very easy and froze wonderfully.
