Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
YUMMY! I made these for dinner tonight and I LOVED them! I served them in a whole wheat pita with lettuce, tomato, feta cheese, and homemade lowfat tzatziki sauce. I only used about 3/4 teaspoon of each spice and subbed dried cilantro for the ground coriander because I didn't have coriander on hand. Absolutely fabulous, and healthy to boot! I'd make this recipe again in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing!

Irish Brown Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
I made this for St. Patrick's Day. It was a very dense bread that would be great with a stew or something else to dip it in. I made a second loaf with a bit of sugar and some raisins that most people preferred. We had the raisin bread thinly sliced with Dubliner cheese on it and it was very tasty!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
I made this for St. Patrick's day this year. I did it in a crock pot with 22 ounces of beer and cooked for a total of about 7 hours on high. I added some veggies (onions and carrots) during the last hour and served with Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes and Irish Brown Soda Bread recipes from this website. While I'm not a huge fan of beer, I think it gave the corned beef and veggies a fabulous flavor. Even people who don't like corned beef enjoyed it. I used the leftover meat to make reuben sandwiches all week. Thanks!

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
For a healthy muffin, these are pretty darn tasty! I added the following based on other reviews: 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 diced apple. I used skim milk instead of buttermilk because that's what I had on hand. I also used only egg whites. I baked at 375 for about 20 minutes and lightly dusted the tops with cinnamon sugar. Very tasty!

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Yum! I made this for dinner tonight and it was so good! I made a few changes based on other reviews: I used Kalamata olives instead of artichokes (don't like artichokes), I used 1 can of diced tomatoes with their liquid instead of chopped tomatoes, and mixed in about 1/2 cup of tomato-basil feta and let it simmer to make a tomato-cream sauce. I also used about 12 oz. rotini because I like it better than penne and I think it holds sauce better. I think using the liquid from the canned tomatoes really helped make a sauce with the cheese and made it more to my liking. I topped the pasta with more crumbled feta to serve. All in all, it was fantastic and I look forward to eating the leftovers for the next couple days!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
Quite Tasty! I HATE fish but bought some tilapia because I know it's good for you. This recipe was just what I needed! I cut the recipe to 2 servings and used most of the sauce on one tilapia filet. I used canned parmesan (sprinkle cheese) and bottled lemon juice because that's what I had on hand. I also subbed garlic powder for the celery salt because I don't like celery and it didn't need any additional salt. I served it with couscous and a green salad. Thanks for helping me eat quick and healthy! EDIT: 01/28/2009: This is one of my most frequently used recipes from this site. I have done all kinds of variations on this recipe. Our fave so far was to add a dash or two of cayenne for kick. Thanks again for a great recipe!

Broccoli Slaw

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
What an interesting recipe! I enjoyed it, but only made half a recipe as I'm cooking for just me. I couldn't eat it all very quickly, so the pistachios got soggy and lost their crunch. Also, I could only find pistachios in shells, so I had to spend quite a while shelling pistachios.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
Yummy! I'd probably put the chicken on a separate skewer from the veggies though, because the chicken took longer to cook than the veggies and the veggies ended up burned on the edges. I used red onion, cherry tomatoes, and red and green bell peppers.

Lime Chicken Picante

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
This recipe was just ok. I used half dijon mustard and half wholegrain because that's what I had in the house. The only bad part about this recipe is that the sauce looks an awful lot like vomit! If you can get past that and eat it, the taste is nice.

Hawaiian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Yummy! I love this recipe, but I think it's one of those love-hate things. It didn't seem like anybody who tasted it thought it was so-so. They either loved it, or couldn't eat another bite.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
This was OK. I made it with chicken breast, as I prefer it to thigh meat. Chicken didn't have a lot of flavor. Potatoes came up nice and crispy though!

California Sherry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Tasty, and healthy to boot! I followed the recipe exactly, but used cream sherry instead of cooking sherry. Quite tasty!

Cream of Mango Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Pretty good, but would have been better if I had picked really, really ripe mangoes. I have never made anything with or eaten mangoes, so I had no idea how to pick them at the grocery store. Lesson learned!

Broccoli Bites

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
I love the Broccoli Bites from Bennigan's, and I was hoping this recipe would replicate them, but I was disappointed. Perhaps it's because I baked mine instead of frying, but they were very doughy and not at all like the ones from the restaurant. I think if you go into it *not* expecting it to copy the restaurant, they are ok.

Feta Cheese Foldovers

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Yummy! I cut each sheet of puff pastry in the package into 9 squares, making 18 squares/servings total. I used tomato basil feta in half, and garlic herb feta in the other half. I folded one flavor into triangles and the other into rectangles. It's easier to seal if you put egg wash on the edge as a "glue" instead of water. I've also made these with cheddar cheese and broccoli instead of feta and green onions when we ate with a family that hated feta.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Absolutely fantastic. I've made this for two appetizer parties and it went over well at both. I left out the fruit preserves the second time because it's sweet enough without it, and I didn't really like the taste of the preserves I used. I put a spoonful of extra fruit into a glass of wine for a makeshift Sangria too. YUM!

Be Prepared Five-Bean Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
I tried the recipe as you would make it to put in a jar as a gift (6 servings). The flavor was good, but even after simmering for 3 hours, the beans still weren't soft. I'd definitely recommend letting the beans soak overnight, then drain and rinse before cooking in the soup.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
I modified this recipe to make what we call Peppermint Bark in my family. I used about 1 pound of semi-sweet and 1 pound of white chocolate. I melted the semi-sweet choc and spread it on as the bottom layer, then put it in the freezer to harden while I melted the white choc and crushed the mints. I used 30 Starlight mints instead of candy canes. I crushed half of the mints into a fine powder that I mixed into the melted white chocolate before spreading it as the top layer. I crushed the other half of the mints more coarsely and sprinkled them over the top. Tastes great!

Pumpkin Pie for Dieters

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
My mom made this for our Thanksgiving and really enjoyed it. I don't like pumpkin pie, so it really wasn't for me. Definitely more like a mousse or pudding instead of pie, and I bet it would be good made as a parfait with graham crackers (as another reviewer suggested).
