Lemon Garlic Tilapia
This is a great recipe, but if you don't adjust the cooking time/temp downard, you're going to have a piece of fish that will be inedible because it's so dry and tough. I've learned over the years that fish cooks VERY quickly, especially tilapia, as they tend to be very thin. I'm with reviewer "peculiarmike", though about tilapia being feces feeders, & I won't eat them. I made this with cod, which is a much thicker fillet, and only cooked it 12 minutes at 350°, NOT 30 minutes at 375°. It turned out nearly perfectly cooked, though if I were to do it over again, I'd probably just do 10 minutes, like a few reviewers said.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
This recipe is excellent, but I made one change only for health reasons. There is a MASSIVE amount of sodium in 1/2 cup of soy sauce. Even the lower-sodium variety is still VERY high in sodium and not to be eaten in such quantities if you have high blood pressure, heart issues, etc. Instead of the 1/2 cup soy sauce the recipe called for, I used only 1/8th cup lower-sodium soy sauce & added sodium-free chicken broth (you could even use water) to bring the total amount to the 1/2 cup called for. Soy sauce is very strongly flavored and pungent, and you won't miss what's been omitted. Now I can eat this without fear of having a stroke, and it really is delicious!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo
This was the fattiest, saltiest (a TABLESPOON of salt???), most unusual alfredo recipe I've ever made, and it made WAY more than 8 servings. There was enough to feed 20 people! One 16 oz. box of pasta is 8 servings, but by the time you get done adding all the cheese, onion, chicken, sour cream, mushrooms, and tomatoes, it makes much more. In addition, I've never, ever seen a recipe for alfredo that includes tomatoes, let alone colby and monterey jack cheeses. I would never make this again, nor would I recommend it, particularly if you're watching calories, fat, sodium.
