Greek Avgolemono Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This is my all time favorite soup. It's exactly the way my yiayia taught me how to make it when I was a young girl. It's now my nephew's favorite soup and he asks for it all the time. I wouldn't change a thing. If you are short on time, use a pressure cooker to cook the chicken. I also use chicken leg quarters and skim the fat that rises to the top.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Really good healthy muffin recipe. I didn't have wheat germ so I used ground flax instead. I also used 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 c white sugar. Didn't have buttermilk on hand(who does?) so I used 1 t of lemon juice with the milk. I didn't use the nuts. The top comes out golden crispy and chewy and the inside moist and soft. This is the perfect breakfast muffin. I plan on freezing them and taking them to work. Next time I may add an extra banana for some added natural sweetness.

Makeover Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I love these muffins. I was looking for a good healthy muffin and this is perfect. I didn't use apple sauce, I used a banana, no raisins, used cranberries, no pecans, used almonds and I used 2 whole eggs. A little time consumeing but well worth the effort!

Cuban Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I used my pressure cooker to make this. It came out fantastic. I used 1 cup of the water, lime, a splash of OJ, cumin, thyme, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper. I cooked it at full pressure for 10 mins and let it release on it's own (about 30 mins). When she says crisp in the directions, she just means browned. The lime at the end just brightens everything up. I did not use the cilantro. I served this with white rice and black beans. You could use the meat for a sandwhich, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, even on a salad with cilatro lime dressing from Trader Joes. Yummy!

Goat Cheese and Spinach Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This was a really good base recipe. I made meatballs out of this mix. I added one egg, 3 tbl grated onion, a couple sprigs of mint finely chopped, a couple tbls of lemon juice, goat cheese, spinach, salt and pepper, and a little bit of breadcrubms. I baked these and they came out delicious. I served with ww pasta with vegetables w/ garlic and olive oil. Next time I make them I will make some tzatsiki sauce to dip them in and maybe try it with feta cheese. Great to have on hand in the freezer for my husband to eat.

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
I made this to freeze and take to work for lunch during the week. I used the fajita seasoning recipe that TRACYCOOK gave on her review (thanks tracycook!)It's much easier to broil the chicken and your house doesn't get all smokey if you were to saute it. I did brown the quesadilla on a frying pan rather than baking. I only used one green pepper, one onion, one zucchini and some corn,and used pepper jack cheese. So good!

Italian Anisette Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These cookies a delicous. Even my husband said they were good without me asking if he like them. I think next time I will try them with almond extract, and maybe lemon extract. So easy too!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I was a little skeptical but seeing all the reviews I thought I would try it. OMG, this is soooo good. I could sip on the sauce, it's that good. I added some red pepper flakes and I also used chicken breasts. I like it crispy so I baked at 425 and then used the broiler for the final carmalizing. Total cooking time was about 25 mins. I used the rest of the sauce for the brown rice and broccoli that I served it with. I will be using this sauce for more than chicken! Thanks for posting.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Thank you for this recipe!! Mcdonalds stopped selling the sweetea for $1 so I was looking for a way to make it at home. I tried other recipes and they tasted bitter. I thought it was the lipton tea bags that I was using, but it wasn't. I was missing the baking soda. Wow, what a difference a pinch makes, the sweet tea is so smooth and delicious!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I've tried so many different biscottis and I love the flavors and texture of these. The combo of vanilla and almond extract is so good. I have been making these once a week to eat with my coffee every morning. I do use canola oil instead of the light olive oil. I only have evoo in the house and that would be too strong. I also use walnuts instead of pistachios only because I have a giant bag of walnuts right now.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Yum! I didn't use Mahi Mahi, I used either cod or pollack ( just grabed what was in the freezer). I didn't marinate it too long because I didn't want to "cook" the fish, since mahi mahi is a meater fish than the pollack or cod it can take the long marinade time. I didn't use honey, I used brown sugar. I loved it. I served it with Carrots and brown rice.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I didn't have seasoning salt so I marianted the chicken in worecester (I got the idea from Alice's chicken recipe on this site) and Montreal Steak seasoning. I also grilled the chicken just because it was super hot out. I didn't use mushrooms because my husband hates them so I caramelized some onions in the bacon fat after cooking the bacon. I served it with noodles and a salad with the extra honey mustard (which was delicious btw) I will use the sauce for salad dressing and a dipping sauce for chicken fingers.

Granola Energy Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I changed this up to my tastes and based on what I had on hand. Did not use raisins, wheat germ, honey, butter or chocolate chips. I added 1/2 c. ground flax, 1tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp of cloves, 1tbl cinnamon, 1/2 c apple sauce, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1 tbl molasses and canola oil instead of the butter. I ended up using my hands to mix this up. This is a very forgiving recipe. I didn't measure most of the ingredients. The sunflower seeds were toasted unsalted and the sesame seeds I used were not toasted. Since I used the sugar and not the honey, I added the applesauce for the moisture.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I added potatoes and carrots to the dish. I used canned chopped tomatoes ( not stewed) and cooked the curry in the oil for a few minuets like the others suggested. I used light coconut milk from trader joes. I don't have anything to compare this to since I rarely eat curry, but man this was good!! I served this with brown rice. This had plenty of spice, I didn't need to add any extra heat. All curry powders are not created equal so check before you add any more spice.

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I search by ingredient since I didn't have any butter and wanted to bake cookies for my sister's house. I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp of salt and used half white half whole wheat flour. They ended up baking at 10-12 mins. Perfect texture, chewy middle and nice crisp edges.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This is yummy! I did make some changes and am noting them here for when I make this again. I halved the recipe,used 1/4 c of ww flour, used a cooked yam since that's all I had, but plan to use a fresh one next time. I used 1/2 apple sauce 1/3 canola oil. I did use the glaze and used the real butter it called for and also added a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. These alterations were based on a half recipe. This was plenty sweet and incredibly moist.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This is so easy, even a monkey can do it!lol I used my kitchenaid with the dough hook attachment on speed 2 for 7 mins. I plopped it on a greased pan and pressed it down and out to the edges. I then added my toppings (chicken, bbq sauce, cheese and sliced onions) and when I was finished adding the toppings I then pre heated my oven to 400. I won't be buying Trader Joe's Dough anymore. This one tastes better. So super easy and so yummy. I used Rapid Rise Yeast.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I halved the recipe. Mixed everything in a 4 cup pyrex measuring cup. Melted the butter in the microwave and just stirred everything together with a fork. Next, I put the batter in a 6 cup muffin pan that I sprayed with pam and I baked for 13 mins until the ends looked done but the center looked soft. OMG, these were amazing! I didn't make the frosting, I had them with Ben and Jerry's vanilla ice cream.
