Beetnik Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Excellent sweet/spicy flavor mix! I got a bunch of beets from a farmers market and decided to give this cake a try. I combined white and brown sugar, 1/2 cup each, but kept the recipe as is otherwise. Great as is, though I might try adding some raisins or dried cranberries next time...

Summer Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Great fresh salsa. My mango was overripe, so I substituted pineapple as previously mentioned in other reviews. Like it hot, so I also used tomatoes w/ jalapenos, and a sprinkle of chili and garlic powders. Great now, but looking to see how flavors blend overnight... Hoping it will be a colorful addition to a healthy foods holiday party!!

Slow Cooker Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I've been craving this for a while, and decided to give it a try for a Thanksgiving side. I lightened it a bit with fat free cottage cheese, but probably cancelled that out when I realized I forgot the flour and sprinkled about a quarter cup of parmesan cheese instead!! So rich and creamy!! Also cut back on time in slow cooker; it was done in 4hrs or less. Will make again soon, either for a side or a yummy dip! Thanks...

Onion Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I've been wanting to try this for a while, and finally gave it a try tonight. I loved the blend of flavors, and made no changes except to add some cut up green onions to the mix for color. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I would either cut way back or leave out the cracker topping entirely next time I make it, as it added little to the overall flavor of the casserole. Great dish!!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I was craving this all day, and was happy with the results, after some quick fixes... Not sure why my sauce came out so thick, but I thinned it down a bit to get a better consistency. Also added chicken, shredded carrots, and a mixture of crunchy and creamy peanut butter, plus a little bit of sesame oil to blend the Asian tastes...

Turkey in a Pot

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
They've GOT to come up with a better, more descriptive name for this recipe!! The smell of the spices, cider and cranberry mix made an all day potpourri throughout the house. Great fall dish!! I used cider rather than apple juice, and substituted red wine vinegar, since that's what I had, but stayed right with the recipe otherwise. The turkey was so moist and flavorful... Thanks for a great tasting meal!!

Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Was in the mood for some warm, tasty comfort food, and this fit the bill! Followed the recipe pretty closely, just switching over to fat free sour cream. Broiled the top for a few moments to brown the top. Inside stayed nice and creamy-- perfect consistency... Might try some "mexi-corn" w/ red peppers for some color/flavor next time, but great as is!!

Campbell's® Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Made some changes with this recipe, some successful, some not... I used nacho cheese soup, which added more flavor, as well as medium chunky salsa to boost the heat as well. Non-fat sour cream and part-skim mozzarella cut down on the calories, as well as a switch from flour to corn tortillas. The corn tortillas didn't stay together as well, but even as a mush, the flavor wasn't too bad.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Quick easy, and as a bonus, I used (cold) leftover white rice from a recent Chinese takeout meal. Also used sesame oil for extra flavor. I added Chinese 5 spice to the mix, along with a mixture of low sodium soy and teriyaki sauces for a salty/sweet taste. Peas and carrots for color, and we had a complete meal... Yum!!

Coffee Marinated Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Used London Broil and was only able to marinate it for 4 hrs. Even just half the recommended time, the flavor was wonderful, and a normally tough cut of meat was super tender. I broiled it in the oven for about 15 min. per side, and it was done just about right. Will definitely make again, this time with a bit less soy sauce.

Tomato Rice Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Great mix of flavors! Super easy to prepare. I added onion and garlic powder, and substituted lime for lemon juice (what I had on hand) and collard greens for spinach. Real hearty for a cool fall evening. Might add additional veggies next time... carrots, squash, peppers...

London Broil I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Great marinade-- Just a few changes... 1/4 c. Teriyaki sauce instead of soy (it's what I had available), 1/4 c. worst. sauce, Asian 5 spice, sesame oil for veg. oil, and a splash of rice wine vinegar made it a bit more of an Asian marinade, maybe... I marinated it for 8 hrs. and broiled in in the oven vs. on the grill. Thicker cut, so it needed more time, about 12-15 min. per side. Easy, tasty way to make a London Broil... Thanks!!

Plum-Glazed Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
First time cooking Cornish Game Hens. Reduced the recipe down to just two birds, but thankfully kept the sauce the same. Mmmmmmm! To reduce fat, I skinned the hens before putting them in the crockpot and put them in breast down to make them extra juicy. Fancy Valentine's Day dinner with little or no extra work! Thanks!!

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Mmmmm! Started late, so I didn't have time to do stew in a slowcooker, but really liked stove top results better as everything was less mushy with more defined tastes. I added onion and garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt-free Spike to the flour to toss w/ meat, added one can of salt free diced tomatoes, and celery in with the veggies, but otherwise followed recipe pretty closely. At the last minute, couldn't resist adding on some bisquick dumplings (found on one of the other stew recipes) but they didn't cook up as well as I hoped... This is a WONDERFUL comfort food for a cold evening!! Warms up the hous and your belly!!!

Smashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Made some changes while keeping close to the original recipe. Added garlic and onion powder plus a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Did not have parsley, so used green onions to enhance look, taste. Nice change of pace for potatoes! Will make again.... Thanks!!

Teriyaki Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Great recipe, marinade smelled/tasted delicious, but my own fault for not letting salmon marinate long enough. Next time I make it, will plan ahead and give it more time to fully soak up the flavors... I also switched over to 50-50 sesame/veg. oil.

Easy Cheesy Skillet Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Rich and creamy... Followed the recipe closely, just added extra spices to chicken (onion and garlic powder, Spike salt substitute). Also added some peas to soup/cheese mixture for color/veggies. Be sure to let it simmer for a few extra minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Mmmmmm!!!
