Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This was amazingly good! I used skim milk --- still worked well. I sprinkled the slightest bit of Parmesan on the top to serve. Like another reader, I added red peppers for color. Next time I'll add some green peppers or broccoli for the same reason, I think. I might also try to reduce the butter in order to further trim calories. It probably won't be as rich-tasting, but then again, I won't feel as guilty so it's a balance!

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I followed the basic recipe with a couple health modifications --- 100% whole wheat bread, soy cheese, skim milk, Egg Beaters. (Drained and rinsed the sausage to eliminate as much fat as possible.) No one was the wiser and everyone enjoyed the dish. Like another reviewer, I added a couple extra eggs, some milk and a few more pieces of bread because I wanted to fill up a 9 x 13 pan. This recipe will be repeated because it's EASY. Thanks!

Candy Cane Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Few tips: REMOVE IMMEDIATELY means "immediately!" These have candy (canes) in them and will stick to your pan like crazy. Be generous with the non-stick spray. Crush candy canes pretty finely. Otherwise, they melt during baking, leaving a big hole in your cookie and causing them to break. Make cookies smaller than you might think you need to; they spread. Bonus: You get a LOT of cookies per batch. I needed to bake mine 11-12 minutes. Test your first batch. My DH pronounced them "GREAT!"

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
In an effort to reduce calories and still treat myself to pecans, I used sugar substitutes and cut the butter in half. The pie still turned out wonderfully and no one was the wiser. This is a keeper!

Lighter Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I used a sugar substitute and the recipe worked great. My extended family thought it was standard pumpkin pie for the holidays. A great "find!"

Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving 2 years ago and it was a delicious twist on the standard turkey. I'd highly recommend it.

Tender Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I reduced the sodium content and used a bone-in roast, turning it halfway as another reviewer suggested. Easy/convenient ---but probably a little bland for my family. I might try shredding and adding a BBQ or steak sauce for sandwiches with the leftovers.

Skyline Chili I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
Love the crock pot aspect! Added half a can of refried beans (for taste of beans without the texture). Substituted chopped canned tomatoes for tomato sauce. Reduced meat to 1 lb of ground beef PLUS 1/2 lb spicy ground sausage --- which gave it a little kick even though overall meat was reduced.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
A big hit with my Book Club! You may use a couple more ice cream bars based on the size of your pan. As other suggested, put chocolate on before the whipped cream.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I doctored things up a bit to enliven the taste. Meat mix was half burger/half sausage. Replaced half of the tomato sauce with salsa. Yum!

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
After reading other reviews, I too added onion powder. Also used 2 eggs and that stretched the coating just enough. This got rave reviews from ALL of my family's picky eaters. A keeper!

Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
Quite a lovely dressing --- easy and with a tang. Like some other reviewers, I skipped the sugar, added a bit more mustard. A good "staple!"

Grilled Pork Steaks with Lemon Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
These were surprisingly good! I was looking for something fast and easy because I had no time to let the steaks marinate. The reviews seemed to run the gamut and like some others, my family generally likes things a little more favorful. BUT... this recipe made up for the lack of spice with being juicy in an unexpected way. I served with rice, veggies and rolls for a quick meal. A basic "keeper."

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
Tasty! Like the other hundred people that'd reviewed this before I tried it, I modified. No frying, but baking for an hour at 375, then adding sauce for last 15 minutes. Doubled sauce recipe and added garlic, red pepper and ginger; thickened with corn starch. Reduced sugar to 1/2 cup. Served with rice. I think I'll try it with boneless chicken next. Sauce is very sticky, so hard to eat as a wing. But worth it!

Quick Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
My hubby said, "I have no idea what I'm eating, but this is incredible!" ha! Like others, I substituted sesame oil for miso. Added more sesame seeds. A fresh-tasting, beautiful addition to your table!

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
Tasty! My kids (teens) turned up their noses at the taste of the beer still left after grilling, so if your eaters are picky, take that into consideration. Otherwise, a good choice!

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Terrific recipe with some slight modifications! I increased lemon to 3-4 tbl, reduced thyme to 1 tsp, added 1 tsp onion powder and some fresh garlic. My DH devoured everything left in the pan! I served it with salmon and the lemon was a great accompaniment. Thanks so much!

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
A nice, homemade gift when topped with a fabric square, tied with a ribbon and attached recipe. I gave this to friends for Christmas and it was a hit.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
Honestly, It was good, I've had MUCH better banana bread. I had to bake 10 minutes longer than recommended, so plan accordingly.

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
Tasty and easy! My rating is based on a few changes. Used linguine. For tomatoes, used 1 28 oz can, 1 14-oz can and a can of tom paste. Threw a tbl. of Italian seasoning and 1/2 tsp of garlic salt in because mine weren't seasoned toms. As another suggested, put fresh basil in late with shrimp. Enough sauce for 6 easily. My hubby finished his and asked, "Is there MORE?" Enough said!
