Balsamic Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
No excuses not to get your veggies. This is so easy and it is VERY good. I had to substitute red onion for shallots. Didn't want to run to the store.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This little gem of a recipe is pretty darn good. I used 8 slices of bacon and baby spinach out of a bag. It is super easy and fast. You can't beat dishes like this when you consider the alternative....drive through!! Yuck!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
OMG...top notch..yummy good! Great texture, rich flavor, and very fattening. I did add vanilla and about 1/2 cup more oats mixed with wheatgerm (I throw that in everything). I have a feeling I could have added another 1/2 cup oats if I had wanted to. I will make these cookies again very soon and try some white chocolate chips.

Cherry Fluff

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
This is a fun, top-notch recipe. It gives a new twist to an old favorite and is perfect for the holidays or a BBQ. I did add marshmallows and some finely chopped pecans. YUM!

Banana Nut Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
I made this cake for a Christmas party at my job. I was a little worried about it as a couple of people had said it was delicious, but ugly. I made this cake in a 9X13 and substituted in some Splenda. When I made the frosting, I only used half of a banana to avoid frosting that was too thin. Instead of mixing the nuts and coconut in the frosting, I lightly toasted the mixture and sprinkled the topping on the frosting. By doing it this way it presents very festive...perfect for the party. I made an itty bitty cake in a ramekin so that I could taste it before serving it to others. It is delish! Would be great with or without frosting. I will make it again amd try trimming off some of the calories!

Eggplant and Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
This is a wonderful recipe and has a lot of "play" room. I did not have eggplant, so I substituted mushrooms. I did not have colby cheese so I used montery jack mixed with some leftover italian cheeses that I had. I seasoned heavier as recommended by other cooks and it was just fantabulous! I will make it again for sure.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2004
This recipe was awesome! My husband and I throughly enjoyed the mixture of greens, fruits, and nuts. The dressing recipe stands on its own as well. We had leftover dressing and poured it over a fruit cup a few days later. I am thinking about making a batch for a gift to be presented in a pretty dressing bottle for a salad loving friend of mine. I used canola oil as it is a neutral fat for people with higher cholestral.

Banana-Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2004
This recipe made a very "pretty" muffin. I had to change a few ingredients to fit what I had on hand. I am only rating this one 4 stars as I felt it needed a bit more flavor. I used half wheat flour and half regular flour. I dislike dates so I substituted snipped apricots. I had nonfat banana yogurt, but it was only 6oz. I used more mashed banana to compensate. My orange peel was dried and I let it sit in the wet mixture awhile. I wish I would have had fresh. It might have made all the difference. If I use this same combination of ingredients, I will use more orange, a bit more salt, and maybe orange flavor yogurt. This is nice one and I will keep it due to the health benefits and the way it presents!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
I made this recipe New Years day. It was quite good, but I couldn't help thinking I would like to have extra sauce with it. I served it with candied yams, broccoli, wild rice, and rolls. It made a very nice meal. I was also wondering about using a raspberry vinegarette instead of the mustard....hmmmmmm.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
I had good luck with this recipe. I did eliminate the water (the apples were wet anyway) and I used some lemon juice. We really enjoyed it warm with Ice cream, and I took it to work cold and enjoyed it that way as well. Thanks for sharing!

Beef Burgundy III

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
I am rating this recipe five stars not because it is the best beef burgandy I have ever tasted, but because I see some great versatility here. My husband and I had it with mashed potatoes one night. Another night I took the rest and used it(and another can of beef broth)as my base for a very yummy stew/soup. I could see making this recipe up in bulk and freezing it in packets to be used for soups, stroganoffs, etc. What a timesaver this could be. This is a keeper for us.

Velveeta® Cheesy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
We really liked this recipe. It was like a "homemade" hamburger helper. Yum! Unfortunately, the amount of Velvetta cheese makes this impossible for me to make again due to the fat content of the dish. I have high cholesteral. I may experiment and see if I can't get the fat down on this one. Kids are gonna love it!

Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
We loved it! However, as someone who has recently been diagnosed with high cholesteral, I knew I had to figure out a way to cut the fat considerably. This is what I did. I used pre-packaged cabbage w/carrot shreds(wish I would have used the whole bag)and followed the directions of the recipe. I then used olive oil to saute the onion with a clove of garlic. After the onion was soft I added about 3/4 c. of diced boiled ham pieces and then I added about 2 TBLS of REAL Bacon bits.(I just could not used bacon drippings...even though I really wanted to!) I sauted a bit longer for the flavors to blend well and then proceeeded to finish the recipe as directed. I used margarine instead of butter. I added a dash of red pepper for zing. This truely is "comfort food" at it's finest. I feel like we kept the essence of the dish and got rid of a whole bunch of fat. Thank you for sharing your recipe Doreen!!!!

Greek Bifteki

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
This is a nice change of pace with the feta cheese. I cheated and used pre-formed patties that I get fresh in my meat section. You could really "Greek" this one up for a superb taste sensation!

Green Chili Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
I made this stew using pork as someone else had recommended. I also used 1 1/2 cans of chopped green chilis as I was using up some from another recipe. I could have put 2 in as my family loves traditional "green chili" and this was very similar in taste when using pork. I added a pinch of ground chipotle seasoning which gave it a little bite and used more broth than called for as my potatoes were large. We loved this recipe and I am sure we will make it all winter long!

Caribbean Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2003
This was really good. I doubled the sauce as recommended and was very glad I did. I also cut my chicken in chunks and sauted it. I ran out of time and didn't even bake it. We had it over jasmine rice and then passed toasted coconut and almond slices. Its a keeper!

Super Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2003
This was a pretty good sloppy Joe. It is definately better than the packaged versions. It was a bit too sweet and I made the mistake of using petite diced tomatos. Next time I will look harder for the crushed. This would be a good one for a crowd by throwing into a crockpot to keep heated. I will make it again.

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2003
I was a little hesitant about this recipe despite the good reviews as I could not imagine what a banana cake might be like. I am impressed. It was easy and baked up well in a 9X13 pan. I used half and half with vinegar instead of the buttermilk and put on a basic cream cheese frosting. It was delicious and half of it is already gone. This is a keeper!

Fast Creamy Tomato Penne

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2003
This is a good standard recipe. We enjoyed the ground pork as it was something a bit different. I only had half the amount of sour cream and it still worked out fine. It's a keeper, but I do think I will try a mild spiced sausage one time to see if it gives it a little more kick.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2003
This was a good recipe with room for lots of changes in a pinch. I really liked the recipe for the salsa verde or green chili and will use it for other dishes.
