Tomato-Topped Sole

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
My first time cooking sole and this was delicious, and so fast and easy. I did use a can of salt-free diced tomatoes as others suggested, and added fresh minced garlic and Italian Seasoning to the tomatoes. Will look forward to using fresh tomatoes when they are back in season and have some taste. Also skipped the butter to lower the fat content; and although I'm sure the butter adds a wonderful flavor, it was excellent without. Thanks Esther for a new fish recipe that will become a regular!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Made this last week when I wasn't feeling well and just didn't want to cook. I could tell this could be really fast and in fact with cooking and ingredient modifications it was in the oven in 5 minutes and done in fifty, turning out moist and delicious! I read many of the reviews and then modified it to what was on hand. Decided to skip the browning step. Needed to use up a green bell pepper so diced it and then spread the chicken breast (cut into four strips) on top. No salsa in the house (too much salt for my husband anyway) but did have half a jar of marinara sauce which I poured evenly on top. Covered and baked for 45 minutes and then served on top of pasta with a sprinkle of parmesan. Yummy! I rated this 5 stars because it's a great idea - so easy and versatile. I loved not having to take time to brown the chicken and saute the peppers. Will be making this again with more cut up veggies on the bottom layer.

Spinach, Caramelized Onion, and Muenster Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This recipe is delicious and I’ve made it several times, with modifications, in the last few months. Because of the high fat content as written I use olive oil instead of butter and 2% milk instead of heavy cream. And, since all I’ve had on hand were russet potatoes that’s what I’ve used. I also leave out the salt as the cheese has plenty and my husband has high blood pressure. As for the cheese I can say that I have made it with many types and mixes, and that the Muenster is definitely the best! This is now our favorite potato recipe, and although I’m sure it would taste much richer as written, the basic recipe idea is excellent and still a treat with all the cheese!

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Delicious, and fast and easy! I served this with 'Fudge Truffle Cheesecake' (from this site) for a birthday party and everyone loved it. I made a larger batch and had to use frozen raspberries, 2-12 oz. bags, and although I try to use a minimum of sugar they were quite tart so I had to add more to taste. Since I usually use frozen raspberries I may try using OJ concentrate next time to see if that sweetens it up some, but I think it's just the nature of raspberries, sometimes they're all sweet and sometimes they're more tart. I also skipped step 3 as other reviewers mentioned as I like the crunch of the berry seeds, even though I know it's not as classy. And, since it was all adults I added some Grand Mariner once it was cooled. Will be making this again. Thanks!

Red Pepper Coulis

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
This has a mild yet delicious flavor. Have made it several times and served it over ravioli. I do add garlic, oregano, and used light sour cream as other reviewers mentioned. Can't wait to try with chicken and shrimp. To the reviewer who used garlic instead of shallots, you need the mellow flavor of the slow cooked shallots rather than just a teaspoon or two of garlic.

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Delicious flavor, and fast and easy! My husband raved about the taste. I used half Italion and half Panko breakcrumbs, and no salt. I used my new discovery, smoked paprika, which has a wonderful smell, and I also used Chipolte Pepper Flakes in place of the chili powder. I served this with Curried Rice Pilaf (with a can of peas added) from the site and it was a hit. I think this is a company meal and it will become a regular for us! Thanks.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Delicious! Have been looking for pasta recipes without red or heavy white sauce and this was it. I did skip broth as I only has oil soaked tomatoes, and I had sliced mushrooms to use up which provided liquid. Also added some salt free spice mix and as always used whole wheat pasta. An easy and versitile recipe. Thanks!

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This was an easy, versitile, and delicious rice dish. I was making Crumb Coated Chicken Thighs, from this site, and this was the perfect side dish. I did make some modifications - extra onions and curry, olive oil instead of butter, used a brown/wild rice mix, and added a can of peas at the end. I didn't bother heating the broth and felt the salt was unnecessary as broth has so much. I was out of raisins and can't wait to make it with them. This will become a regular rice dish for us. Thanks

Trout Saratoga Baked

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I'm always looking for easy low calorie ways to make fish. This is a winner. I used filets and didn't bother to baste. Served it with cous cous as someone else suggested and it was excellent!

Mahi Mahi Ginger Glazed

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Absolutely delicious! My husband raved about how good this was throughout the meal. Instead of a glass dish I put the marinade ingredients in a ziptop baggie, squished them around and put the fish in it. As others mentioned I too baked the fish to reduce fat. I was in a hurry so didn't take time to make the reduction which I was sorry about once we were eating. Also, I was out of fresh garlic and ginger so used powdered; can't wait to make it with the fresh spices. Served it with a brown rice dish. I'm trying to find more easy, nutrious fish recipies and this will now be a regular for us. Thanks!

Shrimp Cajun Creamy Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Excellent and so fast and easy to make! I did use 6 large garlic cloves, added frozen peas and 3/4 cup parmasian to the sauce as it thickened. Will be making this a regular meal. Thanks.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
A delicious way to include more carrots in our meals! I microwave mine until almost tender (to keep more vitamins) and then I added them to the rest of the ingredients and simmered all for 3-5 minutes. I've also made them with maple syrup in place of the brown sugar, and will be trying some of the variations others suggested. I can now grab a bag of carrots when shopping and know they won't go to waste due to lack of a good recipe.

Beets - Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Absolutely fantastic! I'd never had fresh beets and these were so delicious, easy, and nutrious. I did cut back on the olive oil, didn't use salt, and just served with the sauted oil/garlic. Wow! An additional comment: I've now made this several times and the last time I left the beets in the oven longer than planned. They were even more delicious and didn't need peeling!
