Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2015
This is the REAL DEAL!!! I did add pine nuts (1/2 cup chopped) and used half lamb half ground sirloin...just preference. It was awesome! Probably better than our favorite restaurant. This Eastern European wife made her Syrian husband very proud!!!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
Excellent! I did make some simple changes based upon other reviews...used BLACK re fried beans (preference), added a layer of guac atop the crm cheez/sour crm mixture, drained the salsa (needed 2 jars), NO peppers, tomatoes or lettuce. Lots of cheez then the blk olives and green onions. Theses changes really did not alter the taste of the recipe much, just kept it from being a wet mess. I will make this again and again...red peppers, corn, jalapeƱos may be added. I will also cut back on the amounts of sour cream and cream cheese...12 oz and 6 oz respectively...there was just too much. I used an 8X8 Pyrex. EASY AND DELCIOUS!

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Great Pie! I am on my 3rd version this summer. I have added more blueberries, used splenda and whole wheat pastry flour and lite sour cream...just delicious! None of my guests have ever suspected that I made it a bit healthier. I make Martha Stewarts "Easy Pie Crust", just because I prefer a butter crust versus oil/shortening. TRY THIS RECIPE---EASY AND DELICIOUS FOR LESS SKILLED BAKERS! Thank you!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
These are absolutely delicious! 400 for 15-20 minutes and shake 'em around a bit (depending on preference-dark brown and crunchy is best for us). Oil just to coat and give some shine for crisping/roasting, salt and pepper to taste (we like 'em a bit salty). YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THESE!

Spicy Southwestern Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
In my opinion, this recipe needs some "tweaking" with regard to measurements ...3 cups bagged cole slaw, 1 cup red cabbage, 1 cup shredded carrots, 1/4 cup red onion, 1 jalapeno, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro 1/2 cup vinegar (cider or rice wine), splash of oil and pinch of splenda and pinch of cayenne. refrig for 2-3 hrs. Great spectrum of ingredients. Alter measurements to suit your tastes! Thanks!

Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This is a good recipe for using up those veggies that are left in the refrig...I add some zucchini and squash and then just used Barilla tomatoe basil sauce and a table spoon red wine. Very quick and healthy! Thanks!

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
GREAT START, BUT...needed some adjustments to get to 5 Stars. Here is how I got to 5 Stars: Added 1/2 bag frozen chopped spinach, 1 can petite diced Italian tomatoes, 1 can pesto tomatoes paste (Contadina brand), 1/2 the recommended amount of dried spices, 5 cloves garlic, nixed the pasta, only 2 potatoes, 4 carrots 3 whole celery stalks (leaves and all!), 1 zucchini, 2 small yellow squash, 1 quart vegetable stock and 1 can chicken broth (no water!) 1 more can of regular tomatoe paste will likely make it 6 stars...NEXT TIME!!! Thanks for the recipe! PSST...don't forget the sprinkle of cheese!

Crab and Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Only 4 stars, but I will be tweeking the recipe next time to make it a five. I found that the recipe needed more bread crumbs to soak up the liquid, but then lost some of the seafood flavor...I will definitely add the Old Bay Seasoning next time...likely that will elevate this recipe to a 5 star! Thanks...I will be making this again!

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! How could something this simple be SOOOO GOOOD! I used the Fat Free I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and inexpensive store brand (Meijer) petite diced tomatoes with sweet onions. I also cut down the simmer time to 20 mins so the cabbage had some crunch---EXCELLENT surrounding a chicken breast. Thanks!

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Only 4 stars, because I did make some changes...I recommend adding finely/thinly sliced green olives or capers with the black olives. Also, a layer of lean beef or lean pork sausage makes it a hearty meal and still LOW IN CALORIES AND CARBS. If trying to keep it vegetarian, add some spinach...thanks for a great/healthy lasagna! It's a keeper!

Easiest Eggplant

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This is a very tasty and HEALTHY alternative! I recommend using Light Miracle Whip mixed with some Eggbeaters and coating with Panko bread crumbs seasoned with Italian seasoning and grated parm/romano cheeses. Then bake in oven as directed with maybe a minute of broiler time for a crispier finish. Put on a dollop of Barilla marinara and some extra grated cheese and serve! A hearty antipasto salad will complete this HEALTHY and satisfying meal! Thanks for a great start!

Spaghetti Sauce III

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
I made this sauce as instructed, but added some carrots as suggested by others to "sweeten the pot" and reduce the acidity (without adding sugar). It was certainly not bad, but was not "sauce". It's much heartier than a traditional "sauce", but lacked the rich smooth depth of "sauce"...If you know what I mean.

Mushroom and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Great light soup if you make a few changes...I cut back on the olive oil, left out the orzo and added some rosemary. Serve this with a London Broil steak and some mixed green and yellow beans and you have a gorgeous and healthy meal! Thanks for the recipe!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I have been using this recipe for a few years and have not said "THANK YOU!!!" Like others, I have made some minor changes: I use a store-bought rotisserie chicken, 1 can reduced fat cream of chicken and one can broth, 1/2 bag frozen corn, 1 can kidney beans and 1 can black beans (well rinsed and boiled to get rid of the xs gas), chili ready or jalapeno tomatoes with juice, 1 can of green chiles, some white onions, 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and your choice of toppings...healthy as you make it...THANKS TERRYN for a truly great, easy, healthy, classic recipe!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2004
I have made this dish several times and even altered the amounts of alfredo, cream cheese, etc. due to the "what's available" factor. You cannot go wrong! After it bakes, I usually broil it for a minute or two to give it that "restaraunt quality" look. I serve it with a mix of toasted and untoasted bagette slices (for textural variety) and serve the whole thing on a huge wooden cutting board. It is always the first dish to disappear and the most frequently requested hors d'ouvre. made it again this weekend using roasted garlic flavored alfredo...even better and cut the prep time!
