Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I really like this idea. The cream cheese makes a very yummy sauce that's quick and easy to make. With all food, there will be some adjustments based on personal taste/preference. For me, this needed a lot less milk. I used almost half as much as the recipe called for. I also used a pecorino romano cheese. The type of cheese you use will make a big difference as to whether or not your sauce tastes like cream cheese. Mine did not. It was just rich and creamy with a lovely pecorino romano taste.

Raspberry Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2014
Made this last night and wasn't that thrilled with it. We ate it warm and thought the texture was weird. Also, it didn't have much flavor. I put the pie in the fridge over night and just had some after dinner now (while cold) and it was great. So much better cold and having sat for 24 hours. The flavor and texture are really nice now. I did a graham cracker crust and I think it goes well with it. I also used pecans instead of walnuts on the topping (personal preference). Everything else was as in the recipe. I will definitely make it again.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
These are divine! The only changes I made were to the sugar proportions (1 1/4 cups of brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar) and omitted the nuts. The key is to remove them BEFORE they brown. They should be light in color and appear "not done." Trust me though - they are. Absolutely delicious with ice cold milk or dipped in hot coffee. Yum :)

Oven BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2014
Good recipe with some minor tweaks. I cut the brown sugar down to 2T and the salt to 1 tsp. I omitted the water, but added a splash of low sodium chicken broth to the sauce to thin it out slightly right before coating the chicken. I also heeded the advice of other reviewers and cooked it 30 minutes covered and then 45 minutes uncovered. I flipped the chicken twice while it was uncovered. The drumsticks came out really juicy and flavorful. I think next time though I will leave out the salt altogether. This is a great recipe when you need to put something together quickly as I had all the sauce ingredients on hand already.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I have never made carnitas before and this turned out great. I used a 2 lb. pork loin roast and cooked it about 6 hours on low. I used the original/full amount of seasoning though and, quite frankly, could have even used more. I did omit the cinnamon based on other reviews and added some chili powder instead. The meat came out really, really tender. I served it burrito-style with tomatillo salsa and fresh chopped onion and cilantro. Will most definitely be making this again!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
Great muffin! I've made these a handful of times. I usually use yogurt instead of sour cream for the protein. The most recent time I made them I only had a little yogurt so I did half yogurt and half ricotta cheese. Oh man were they fantastic. I also always add extra blueberries. Delicious :)

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
Not much flavor and didn't like the texture. It needs more oil/fat and more blueberries.

Spanish Brown Rice

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
I used chicken broth instead of water and still thought it was lacking in flavor. I think it needs more salsa and less other liquid. I also added black olives after it was done. Adding some bell peppers while it cooks might also help. Like that it was brown rice though!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
Fabulous cake! Like other reviewers I used freshly brewed coffee in place of the hot water. I also used about 25% less sugar and it was plenty sweet - especially with frosting. I did not use the frosting included with this cake recipe though, but rather the Cream Cheese Frosting II recipe from this site. It's got a great texture and wonderful, rich flavor. Yum!

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
Really good marinade. I used boneless, skinless turkey breasts and baked them @ 350F for about 35 minutes. They came out super juicy and tender.

Savory Green Beans

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
Good recipe. I doubled the quinoa, added minced portabella mushroom and dried basil. My meatloaf came out nice and juicy!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
Good recipe. I used 1/4 cup yogurt instead of the egg and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil. Came out great!

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
Great base recipe! I made the following changes: (a) one cup of whole wheat flour; (b) 1/2 cup ground oats; (c) vanilla yogurt instead of oil; (c) omitted the sugar. I made these for my 11-month-old. I served them with pureed stewed apricots. They were a big hit :)

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and it was waaayyyyy too salty. If I make this again I will only use 1 tablespoon of salt.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
A little too "wet" for our liking. Also, it didn't have enough of a salsa flavor. I think if I try this again I'll use less chicken broth and more salsa.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
This recipe definitely needs a little help. I cut the recipe in half since I was making it for only 2 people, but based on other reviews I added 3 large cloves of garlic and about 1/3 of a white onion and sauteed both before adding to the sauce at the beginning. I also subbed some low-fat cream cheese for half the milk. Additionally, I added in peas and broccoli. It was still lack-luster. I think it could use a little cayenne pepper and maybe some bacon!

Sour Cream Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
These were alright. They had a light texture which was nice, but were not crispy which we were looking for. Also, they had very little flavor. I added vanilla and a little brown sugar too. Next time will need to add much more to give these some oomph.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
Really great base recipe. I made the following minor substitutions/changes: (1) Used garbanzo flour instead of wheat to make them gluten-free; (2) used agave sweetener instead of honey and omitted the brown sugar; (3) used a mixture of almonds, cashews, pepitas, raisins, cranberries, mini white and chocolate chips, and dried pineapple; (4) added a heaping tablespoon of natural style peanut butter; (5) used Barbara's multi-grain cereal; (6) greased the foil with coconut oil. I will never buy another store-bought granola bar. Love that I can control the fat and sugar in these and there's no preservatives!

Dairy and Gluten-Free 'Buttermilk Pancakes'

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Not sure what happened, but like another reviewer I couldn't get these to "cook". The outsides were way too dark and the inside just remained goopey. I tried cooking on really low heat for longer as well and no luck.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
This was a great soup. I did make a few changes though. I used raw chicken breasts which I think is crucial in getting the meat tender. I wouldn't use pre-cooked. I shredded the chicken after about 3 1/2 hours and then put the meat back in. I also used only 1 cup of water, but an extra cup of chicken broth (low sodium). Next time I'll probably only use the broth and no water. I didn't have enchilada sauce on hand so I used a can of thick salsa (smooth, not chunky). I also added some celery and diced red bell pepper. Additionally, based on other reviews, I added a can of black beans. When I served the soup I topped it with shredded Mexican blend cheese and avocado and warmed up some corn tortillas to eat with it. Delicious! My husband has been sick and said it was just what the doctor ordered :)
