Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
I followed the directions exactly, just used ground turkey instead of ground chicken. They looked like meatball cookies, splat!! It would have been ok if they taste half-way decent, but nope... I think it's probably a good recipe, just no clue what I might have done wrong, and not brave enough to try them again... :-(

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
I've been curious about the whole "dump cake" concept for a while now, so a beautiful fall day and all the (2!) ingredients available was a perfect excuse. I did add a good shake or two of pumpkin pie spice and a 1/4 of a cup or so of apple sauce for extra moisture, cooked 'em up as muffins/cupcakes, and am loving how quick and easy they were, how GREAT they are making my kitchen smell, and (not!) how loudly they're calling me to eat them all in one sitting!! ;-)

Applesauce Baked Oatmeal

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
SUPER easy, incredibly adaptable, and DELICOUS!! I made it 50-50 white and brown sugar (will prob. go all brown next time), added raisins and cinnamon, and, as suggested, baked it in a 8 x 8 square Pyrex pan. Topped it w/more applesauce. Next time might add yogurt!! YUM!!

Easy Snack Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
Sooooooo quick and easy, and soooooooo yum that I didn't get a chance to take pictures!! TONS of possible variations-- I made 'em for a big July 4th party and made them turkey/turkey ham/roast beef. Also used low fat veggie cream cheese, subbed spinach for the lettuce, and left out the tomatoes (too soggy!). The regular, wheat, and spinach tortilla rolls chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours, then were sliced up, arranged "festively," and were gone before I knew it!!! YUM!!!

Grilled Tuna Teriyaki

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
YUM!!! VERY flavorful marinade. I added 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar and a bit of sesame oil to the marinade, which I had the tuna in for about 4 hours. Weather forced us to switch from the outdoor grill to stove top, but for my first time grilling tuna steaks, this was a great intro!!

Purple Apple Slaw with Peanut Butter Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
AWESOME!!! What a great blend of flavors and colors!!! No changes except added shredded carrots for some extra color. This beats tired, boring old regular cole slaw by a mile!!! YUM!!

Baked Flounder with Panko and Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
Ok, but not the best. I had the ingredients, and it sounded quick and easy, which it was, but I think the cheese, breadcrumb, and spice mixture over-powered the fish. Not bad, but esp. on a hot day, I think I should have stuck with something lighter....

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
At the last minute, I discovered I only had teriyaki sauce (sweeter) not reg. soy, so it's probably my own fault that this was a bit sweeter than expected. No add'l. changes other than switch plain garlic powder for the garlic salt. Easy and YUMMMMM!!

Spring Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
YUM!! Didn't change a thing-- Just subbed all sesame oil since I didn't have peanut oil. Kept a close watch on the asparagus and their perfect crunch and the amazing blend of flavors have me already looking forward to the leftovers I'm going to have for lunch tomorrow!!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Good, basic recipe with some extra zip! Followed the recipe exactly, just switched garlic powder for garlic salt. LOVE the baked rather than fried option-- Can't stand greasy meatballs!! I think next time, I'll go bolder on the spices. The recipe as is cooks up quick, easy, and I appreciate the flexibility.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Wanted to like these a lot more than I did... Too dry, undefined flavor. Maybe some hot sauce next time? Not sure what I did wrong. Loved the idea, not sure how to fix it...

Curried Cottage Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
THIS is how I'm going to roast potatoes from now on!! Super easy, super tasty, not greasy at all!! Wonderful blend of flavors-- I'm hooked!! I stuck to the recipe exactly, just nuked the potatoes a few minutes to cut roasting time and cut them in rounds rather than strips-- YUM!!

Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Quick/easy weeknight meal. Good, not great flavor blend, since I had to tone down the spice for "sensitive" palates/wimps, so that might have been the issue, so will try it again with more curry/cayenne.

Coconut Curry Fish

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Nice mix of flavors... VERY quick and easy, and plenty of room for adaptation-- Even for fish/spice phobics!! Great consistency without the added cornstarch for thickening. Served over rice-- Yum!!

Potato Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Lots of potential. I thought I'd beat the odds and NOT need to pre-cook the potatoes if I sliced them thin enough, but even after 45min. in the oven, they were not quite fully cooked. Tons of potential here, it's a great tasting, hardy veggie dish. Added extra spices (onion powder, italian spices...) and some parm/romano cheese to the mix added great flavor.

Guilt-Free Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
So easy!! This lighter, sweet/tangy treat feels like cheating... Feels like I spent way more time preparing it AND that I'm breaking my diet eating it!! Didn't have soy milk, but skim worked fine, and wish I checked how many apples I had (only 3 large) before I started, but all in all, a GREAT pre-holiday treat!! Mmmmm!!

Southern Apple Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Great flavor, and love the added touch of the apples!! Added shredded carrot for extra color/flavor/texture. I was out of onion, so added onion powder/flakes, which I prefer any way for a smoother tuna salad!! Went well atop my salad for lunch @ work!!

Garlic Curry Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
I also upped the curry a bit and cut the onion and garlic in half. I made sliders and they were sooo good on little onion rolls with a dollop of mango chutney to bring out the flavor! Certainly more interesting than a plain burger!! Yum!!

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I used low fat chicken sausage, leftover spaghetti sauce from an earlier meal, non-fat cottage cheese and just one package of spinach. I think the texture would have been better with ricotta cheese. Good on its own, leftovers even better over pasta!
