Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
I truely can't rave enough about how delicious, easy, and healthy these were!!! I was a little concerned that this was going to be labor intensive but it only took about 10 minutes to prepare. I just sliced the zucchini in rounds, and then I dunked them in Egg Beaters to save on calories and for the convenience, and then dunked them in the bread crumb mixture. I used seasoned bread crumbs and added extra garlic powder since my family are garlic lovers. And just popped them on a cookie sheet sprayed with a little Pam! After 7 minutes in the oven, I flipped them around with a spatula. Just as a side note, you don't have to be careful flipping them around, they stay together pretty well. Then put them back in the oven for another 10 minutes. I served them with both marinara and ranch dressing on the side. I made 2 full cookie sheets worth of these and they were scarfed down SO quickly!! I had men that are not at all health concsious raving about them and their wives begging for the recipe. I am really making an effort to lose weight, I'm down 20 pounds, and recipes like this that are delicious and not obviously "health food", make entertaining and hosting really fun for me again. These really do need to be served right out of the oven, I think you could prep them ahead of time to the point of the cookie sheet and then pop them in the oven when company came over. Thank you for the excellent recipe!!

Soy Garlic Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Really outstanding marinade!! It seriously took me about 2 minutes start to finish to get this prepped and then just 5 minutes on the grill, and it tasted fantastic. I added a little more soy sauce and a little less vegetable oil. Also, once the steak went on the grill my husband boiled the remaining marinade in a saucepan, added a tiny bit of cornstarch, and made a fabulous sauce to dip the meat in!!

Red Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I substituted all of the salt and seasoned salt with garlic salt and reduced the oil to about 1/4 cup and up the vinegar to 1 cup to make it lighter and it was delicious!! This really is something that only improves as it sits in the refrigerator. It is a great thing to make on Sunday and eat with your lunchs all week long. This is something that really fills me up, and tastes indulgent. Sprinkled with the tiniest bit of gorgonzola cheese this becomes a decadent treat!!

Gail's Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Absolutely delicious!! It seriously took me 5 minutes to make and it was SO good!! I just used the pinto beans straight from the can after I drained and rinsed them and it was delicious. I didn't use as much dressing as it called for, I just drizzled it over the top. Oh, and for the chips we used pepper jack Doritos. It was SO good!! Really this is one of those things that I will make all the time with burgers, chicken, etc. It would be perfect for a summer bbq.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Wow!! What a perfect and super easy dinner! I used london broil since it was on sale for super cheap and just dumped it in the Crock Pot, threw the sliced garlic on top, and dumped in the pepperoncini. I did cut off the tops/stems from each pepperoncini before I put it in the Crock Pot, but even with this step this meal took under 5 minutes of prep time in the morning. When I got home from work I threw some tater tots in the oven, and heated up some veggies. During the last few minutes of the tater tots cooking I put the beef into sub rolls, it was so tender it just fell apart with a fork, covered it in the pepperoncini's, and put a slice of provolone on top of each sandwich. I threw these in the oven with the tots for about 3 minutes to melt the cheese and they came out perfect!! My husband hasn't stopped raving about this delicious dinner since I made it! Total this dinner cost me under $5 including the side items and tasted wonderful. I love recipes that can be made with stuff that I keep in my pantry. This will definitely satisfy a fast-food craving without the expense or thousands of calories. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, I am adding this into my rotation.

Momma OB's Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
Overall this was a satisfying and very healthy meal! It really couldn't have been any easier to prepare. The only changes I made were: I used chicken stock instead of water since I had some to use up, I added a little red wine, added one minced habanero pepper w/out the seeds, and after it was done cooking I was a little dissapointed since it looked more like a soup with chunks of chicken in it so I shredded the chicken and it looked more like a traditional chili. The chicken was so soft it literally just fell apart when I smooshed it with the spoon I was using to stir it. It is a very hearty and healthy meal!! I served it with sour cream, cheese, and biscuits.

Spinach Saute

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
This really couldn't have been any easier to make and a great way to use up lots of extra fresh spinach since it cooks down a lot. I added some garlic and it really wasn't necessary at all. The lemon juice made it taste really bright and clean, and reduced fat cream cheese made it taste indulgent. I served it with brown rice and grilled chicken. I had enough extra sauce that it tasted great over the rice. This isn't a really pretty side dish, but a completely delicious one to accompany a super quick mid-week meal. From pulling ingredients out of the refrigerator to sitting down to eat this was done in under 15 minutes including grilling the chicken.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
This was fabulous!! I am actually dieting right now and I was looking for some healthier options for appetizers. I made this recipe with reduced fat cream cheese and instead of the mayo I used Fat Free Sour cream. I omitted the layer of mozzarella cheese on the top and just stirred in about 1/8 of a cup of it. I also decreased the rest of the cheese by a little bit and increased the spinach a little bit. I made sure that I drained the spinach REALLY well, I think that if you didn't the dip wouldn't have as creamy of a texture. I also added an extra clove of garlic. I served this with a chunks of french bread, crackers, and pretzels and it was wonderful!! I had several people tell me this was the best spinach artichoke dip they have ever had, everyone asked me for the recipe, and no one could believe that it was low-fat and low-calorie. This is definitely going to become a regular when I entertain.

Roquefort Grapes

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Beyond easy to make and it really makes you look like a pro! Everyone that tried these (that like Bleu Cheese) oh, I used Bleu instead of Roquefort since to be honest it is cheaper, absolutely adored them. They are great to add to a cheese platter or just put in a pretty bowl to snack on with cocktails. They keep in the refrigerator very well too. They were still good after almost a week.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This soup turned out just OK for me and I followed the directions exactly. It was fine, but I won't be making it again. It didn't seem to really come together as a cohesive dish it seemed more like individual parts all in a pot together.

Basil Parmesan Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
WOW!! First of all, I couldn't find sundried tomato paste so i just took some sundried tomatos that were packed in oil and I ran them through the food processor until they turned into a paste consistency. I also made this 24 hours in advance and it was WONDERFUL! All of my guests raved about it, and it was so simple to prepare. This would be perfect for Christmas with the bright green and red interior. Also, since the flavors are so concentrated you don't need a lot of the spread for each cracker so it really goes a long way. This is a wonderful party appetizer because you can make it so far in advance and then all you have to do before the party is put it on a plate and open a box of crackers.

Polish Sausage with Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This was absolutely delicious and really cost effective...my favorite combination! The only changes that I made are that I added about 1/2 cup of water after the cornstarch and brown sugar mixture because it just didn't look like there was enough liquid. Also, I skipped the first step where you poured the boiling water over the cabbage since it just seemed like a pain and I didn't want to wash those extra dishes ;) Since you have the cabbage covered for most of the cooking time it sort of steams itself and my cabbage was perfectly soft by the end. I will be making this again!

Zesty Tomato Soup for One

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
Ridiculously easy, and you would never be able to tell!! I doubled the recipe and it came out to exactly 2 bowls of soup. I just put the onion, tomato and V8 in my food processor for about 30 seconds, and then heated it on the stove for about 5 minutes. Afterwards I realized I should have just dumped it into bowls and put it in the microwave for a minute or two to make it even easier and less mess. I can't get over the fact that I can make FRESH tomato soup in under 5 minutes from start to finish! You could add other ingredients to modify it such as some fresh basil, more garlic, a little mascarpone cheese would taste great too. It was much better than any canned or prepared tomato soup I have bought from the grocery store, and I loved that the consistency was thick just from all the raw vegetables in there. Great recipe!! Thanks!

Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
WOW!! This was really an outstanding dip that was a huge hit with everyone at the party. No one could belive how simple this was since it tasted so special. I followed the recipe except for two minor changes, I used garlic powder since I agree that raw garlic can be a little overpowering and I used sun-dried tomatoes that weren't packed in oil They were just the ones that are dried and in a bag and they were fabulous! I also used dried basil instead of fresh. I love that I have everything to make this wonderful dip in the house and I can whip it up at a moments notice. I sliced french bread, topped it with a little olive oil and sea salt, then toasted it in the oven for a few minutes. We tried it with pita chips and that was great too, but I think veggies would be perfect. I am going to spread it on crostini and sprinkle some fresh basil on top for Christmas to accentuate the red and green.

Baby Blue Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
This punch is MUCH better in theory than it is in reality. It definitely created that "Oh, How Cute!" reaction at first but the few people that tried it commented on how sweet it was and didn't go back for seconds. It was really overpowering! By the end of the party the ice cream looked like a curdled mess on the top of the bowl and was just SO unappealing! It was a cute idea to have blue punch for a baby boy shower however, you would be MUCH better off using a little bit of the blue kind of Juicy Juice and mixing it with sprite or ginger ale to get the same color without the overly sweet taste and yucky look. I would take a pass on this punch!

Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Wow! This is an after work lifesaver. I followed the recipe exactly and it only took me 3 minutes before work to throw it together in the crockpot and it is ready when I get home. I can't emphasize enough how these simple ingredients go together to make a wonderful flavor and super tender meat.

Ugly Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This tasted pretty good but the name says it all, it is pretty darn ugly! Since it really doesn't look very appetizing not a lot of people tried it at my party so I had a ton left over. With all of the wonderful dips out there I would skip this one and make a dip that tastes AND looks delicious!

Apple Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
This was a really delicious and simple appetizer. It seemed much fancier than it actually was, and it definitely didn't taste like there were so few ingredients in it! The only change that I made was sprinkling a little bit of olive oil over the bread before I toasted it on parchment paper since I liked my crostini that way. This will definitely be a recipe that is going into my rotation!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
PERFECT! This champagne was just the cutest way to start out a baby shower that I hosted!! When you pour this into a glass it gets the exact same little foamy hed that champagne does. Also, it was so delicious! Really light and refreshing, most of my guests enjoyed several glasses of it. I just chilled all of the ingredients really well before I mixed them into a pitcher and then poured the "champagne" into glasses as guests arrived. I am going to use it as an alternative to champagne for the next baby shower I am hosting so guests can make Mommymosas!! How Cute! This is a wonderful recipe that I plan to use over and over again as a fun alternative for non-drinkers that isn't the typical overly sweet drink.

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
I just wasn't impressed at all to be honest. It didn't really capture any of the "grill" flavor. Honestly, I would just save yourself the hassle and microwave it.
