Oatmeal Date Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Great, low fat breakfast/snack treat. A bit on the dry side, though very flavorful. I also skipped the added sugar w/ the dates and cut back by close to a half on the brown sugar, and added a sprinkle of cinnamon. Might add some apple sauce next time for additional moisture/flavor...

Honey Soy Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Just so easy and flavorful!! I used rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Marinated about 6 hrs. in the fridges and the flavors blended together so well... What a wonderful light, easy way to enjoy fish!

Mexican Cucumber and Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Experimenting with some new cuke recipes with the TONS of fresh from the garden beauties we've gotten so far this summer... This was an interesting mix of flavors, not the best but not the worst either. Only change I made was regular vs. baby carrots. Wondering how it might be different/better with lemon juice instead....

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Wonderful blend of flavors! Followed the recipe exactly, except for substituting red onions for green, since that's what I had. I marinated the meat all day, and grilled the meat with mushrooms and onions in the evening. Perfect blend of sweet and spicy!! Will make again and again...!!

Foil-Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Good flavor, but I think the recipe might have called for too much cornstarch, as the sauce came out sort of clumpy! I'll use half the amount next time. Otherwise, a good mix of flavors. I used diced chicken breast rather than thighs, but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. Served over white rice... The Hoisin sauce makes all the difference-- Don't leave it out!!

Wildfire BBQ Beef on Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Quick, easy, and honestly, just about as full of flavor as most beef barbeque with double or triple the ingredients/prep time! I used a smoke-flavored barbeque sauce and added red and green peppers the last hour. Cooked on low for 8 hrs. Leave the lid open to absorb extra liquid the last half hour. Leftovers should be just as good tomorrow!!

Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Tortilla)

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
So many years after living a year abroad in Spain, nothing stands out more in mind like the comfort of a well-made tortilla espanola. We enjoyed this for breakfast this morning, scaled back for just two people, with 4 eggs, two large potatoes, half an onion, and a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Keep it simple, use plenty of olive oil, and cross your fingers for good luck when turning it over and you can't go wrong!! Buen provecho!!

Tasty Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Great mix of flavors, and so easy!! I used light soy sauce, added a toasted sesame/ginger spice mix, and substituted honey for the sugar, but kept close to the original recipe otherwise. Served with coconut-ginger rice and peas.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Loved it!! No changes, except switched feta for parmesan cheese, and left out the salt. The pinch of nutmeg was an interesting addition!! Great breakfast!

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Mmmmmmmmmmmm!! Not a big fan of "traditional" corned beef and cabbage, so this was an interesting idea to try. I halved the recipe, changed apple cider for juice, added three cut apples, left out the onions and used the regular potatoes I had on hand vs. red. Reading other reviews, I decided to wait 'til the last hr. to add the chopped cabbage, so it still had good taste/texture. The sweet/salty flavor mix was wonderful, and this is how we're eating corned beef and cabbage from now on!!

Fish Fillets with Stuffing

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
Not sure what went wrong... The only changes I made were to add some extra spices (onion and garlic powder with a sprinkle of lemon pepper) and to bake the mix in the oven rather than microwave it. The top fish cooked, but the stuffing and the bottom fish remained soggy. :-(

Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Just made it, and enjoyed the sesame flavor blend. As suggested by another reviewer, I subbed lemon pepper blend for the Italian spices, and I think this worked well with this dish. Might add a bit more lemon juice next time, or try the recipe as written. A good, lighter dish!

Mashed Potato 'n' Parsnip

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Interesting taste combo... I doubled the potatoes, since they were smaller, as with the carrots, but otherwise kept the recipe as is. Great blend of flavors!

Bowler Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Tasty marinade!! Easy to find ingredients, moments to put together, YUM!! Mixed it all up, poured it in a ziploc bag, and placed london broil cut in the the marinade before leaving for work. 10+ hrs. later, I broiled it in the oven for about 15 min. each side, and served with baked potato and a salad. Great flavor, super tender meat!! Might marinate over night next time... Thanks!!

Orange Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I will sub a dash of soy sauce for water next time. I added a dash of ginger and also used breast tenders and served with improvised "Chinese style" white rice w/ veggies. The sauce was watery, but blended well with the rice. Quick, easy, and really flavorful!!

PHILLY Creamy Tomato and Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Good, but needed more liquid. Perhaps using non-fat cream cheese took away some of the moisture. I added some skim milk to the mix and it was a tasty, creamy dinner.

Kathy's Southern Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Good comfort food! I added a dash of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, which changed the color, but made my kitchen smell like a chai tea was "brewing" in the oven!

Spinach and Spaghetti Squash Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Decided to use the whole squash, so I doubled the recipe, except kept it a just 3 whole eggs, and 1 can (12 oz.) plus just a splash more reg. (skim) milk, as the mixture seemed kind of runny. For extra flavor, I added onion and garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, some parmesan cheese and a bit of nutmeg. Two deeelish. quiches! Will make again, possibly in just one casserole dish...

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Good, basic roast potato recipe... I mixed red and russet potatoes, as that's what I had, plus half an onion, and cut the recipe in half, but otherwise didn't change a thing. Baked for about an hour at 375F, than broiled about 5 more for some extra crunch. Might use a bit less olive oil next time, as they came out a bit "un-crisp!!" Still tasted great though...!!!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Bringing these tomorrow to a holiday office potluck. I tripled the recipe, substituted onion powder and flakes for the onions, added garlic powder and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs to the meatballs, which I baked for approx. 15 min. They will marinate overnight in the fridge (in the crock pot) and hopefully soak up even more of the wonderful sweet/tangy flavors I couldn't resist trying out tonight! Thanks for a quick and easy crowd-pleaser (I'm hoping.....!!)
