Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
Yum! Used italian seasoned breadcrumbs but other than that followed the recipe to a T. Chicken was moist and delicious, topping was crunchy. Bonus - this recipe is EASY! I was making parmesan risotto to go with this so my hubby (who doesn't cook) offered to make this. He had no problems and it came out perfect :)

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
This meatloaf is excellent! Yum! However, only 4 stars because as written it is only so-so. After reading the reviews I cut the brown sugar in half and am very glad I did - the meatloaf was plenty sweet and I may use even less next time. I mixed the brown sugar with the ketchup and added a bit of worcestershire sauce, then spread this over the top of the loaf (heeded the warnings of others about spattering :)). I used oats instead of the saltines and ended up needing to add ~1/4 c. more. I only used ~1/4 c. milk and that was plenty - the mix was soupy enough without the extra. I also used ground turkey, just a personal preference (and it's what I had in the fridge). But, at the end of the day, this meatloaf is FABULOUS. It comes out moist and delicious. My husband has requested that I make it much more often. Yum :)

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
Yummy - what a way to make "alfredo" and save yourself the calories! I cut up two chicken breasts, coated them in flour and italian seasonings, and sauteed them with the garlic and onion. I added a little bit of the broth and cooked the flour in at this point to make a roux, then added the milk and rest of the broth slowly - sauce thickens up very quickly this way. Could use a bit more salt and pepper but I like my food salty (no high blood pressure worries here :)). At the end mixed in some steamed carrots and frozen peas along with the pasta and sauce, topped with chicken, voila! Served with salad and bread - a dish worthy of company :)

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Yum! This bread is fantastic! I left the sugar amount alone and it was definitely sweet enough for me - I might even cut it a bit if I'm in the mood for a more hearty bread. I didn't have self-rising flour so I added 1T baking powder and 1t salt, as suggested by other reviewers. This bread bakes up beautifully and is so easy! I used Bud Light that we had leftover, and it was little bit bitter (old beer), but that was my own fault. This would be even better with a good, fresh beer :)

Winter Energy Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
These were good, especially for being a healthy cookie :) I didn't have raisins or walnuts so I left them out. Like a lot of others, I reduced the sugar and replaced 1/2 of the butter with unsweetened applesauce. I made the cookies smaller than called for (that way I can eat more of them!). Also, just as a note, I only had blackstrap molasses - the flavor was very strong in these. If I use the blackstrap again I would probably reduce it to 1/2. I would imagine that other types of molasses would work better for this recipe as it covered up the other flavors, and what's the good of adding all those yummy ingredients if you can't taste them?!

Honey Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Subtle flavor, delicious, easy, and hubby loved it. 5 stars in my book! The sauce does get a little sticky and hard to work with as it cools but will melt when it touches the chicken.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Good pizza crust in a pinch when you don't have yeast. I will make it again but will only use 1 egg (it tasted a bit like an omelette with pizza toppings :)). Also, we were only using cheese so I baked it by itself for ~15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turned it over and put on the toppings. Baking it longer would have probably burned the crust. It did stick but only in one place so I probably just didn't evenly spray the pan. The dough is very batter like before you cook it, but bakes up nicely. Note; if you are making this, don't expect it to be like a store bought or restaurant pizza crust. It's good in its own right but doesn't have the yeasty taste or feel of yeast raised crusts (obviously :)). My husband loved it and might even prefer it over the typical pizza crust.

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
A good recipe and one that I will make again, with modifications. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 of what it called for and it was still a little too sweet for me. Also, it was a bit eggy tasting. Next time I will reduce the brown sugar more and reduce the egg by a little bit (I was using egg substitute so that could be the problem). Overall, a yummy and creamy dish that makes for a fast breakfast!

Apple Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Great recipe - turns out delicious and they become even more "scone-like" as they sit (at first they are a bit bready). I will make these again - as a note, I had to add quite a bit more flour (at least another 1/2 cup) to make this into a workable dough (still very pliable); otherwise it was more like a batter. I will chalk this up to high humidity and the fact that I used reduced fat butter, though - not a fault of the recipe (I almost always have to add more flour to recipes).

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
Awesome dish. I make it in the crock pot and add some chili powder and 1 c. white rice (not instant). Not a very pretty presentation because the beans and tomatoes break down and the rice gets kindof mushy, but it tastes great! Top with a little sour cream and cheddar cheese. You can even use frozen chicken breasts in this one!

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Yum! I use this recipe all the time for an extremely quick, easy, and delicious hummus. It is easy to alter it to suit your taste. Sometimes I will add oil packed sundried tomatoes (~1/2 of a jar, rinsed, per batch) which makes it extra yummy (if you like sundried tomatoes, that is!) but it is also great as is. I use it to dip carrots, tortilla chips, pita bread, and even regular bread. Yum!

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
These were ok but not outstanding. I mede the dough in my breadmaker and then formed the dough into bowl shapes for the second rise. The flavor wasn't bad but the texture was a little tough/dry for my liking. Great idea, though, and i'll probably use it again :)

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
Yum! I've made this with both creamy and chunky peanut butter and love it! I have to make small batches and give them away quickly to be sure that I don't eat the whole batch myself! :)

Apple Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
Very good. Hubby took it to his office and recieved rave reviews. I didn't have self-rising flour so I added baking powder as suggested by other reviewers and it turned out great :) I also used pecans in place of the walnuts because that is what I had on hand.

Homemade Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Wow - I've always been one to just use plain spaghetti sauce and cottage cheese for lasagna, but not anymore! This was fantastic! I used 1/2 lb. extra lean ground turkey and 1/2 lb. reduced fat sausage in place of the other meats (what I had on hand) and increased the sauce as suggested (2 28oz cans italian style diced tomatoes - I prefer them to the crushed). I also used f.f. cottage cheese and 1/2 c. egg substitute (~2 eggs). I made homemade noodles, as well. Served this to hubby's bosses with garlic bread for the bread maker and a salad - everyone had seconds! This sauce is amazing and will be what I use from now on!

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
Yum! I made this last night and it was excellent - a huge hit! I made a few changes based on ingredients on hand - I used 1/2 lb. extra lean ground turkey and 1/2 lb. reduced fat ground italian sausage (jimmy dean) instead of the beef. I also had to substitute 1/2 of the bread crumbs with quick oats (thought I had enough crumbs but ran out in the middle :)). I made 36 meatballs, baked for 20 minutes, then put them in the sauce. We ate them on toasted hamburger buns with a little mozzarella cheese - next time we will definitely try the baguette! These would also be excellent over spaghetti, I imagine!

Rosemary and Peppercorn Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Yum! I made a few modifications to make it a little healthier and it is delicious! I cooked the chicken in a skillet that I sprayed with a little butter flavored cooking spray, no butter. When I removed the chicken, I melted 1 tablespoon reduced fat butter in the skillet and added a little bit of flour to make a roux (sp???). To this I added 1 cup skim milk, the garlic, and fresh rosemary. After it had cooked down I added some chicken broth (I let the liquid get too low) and cooked it down a little more. Served the chicken and sauce over white rice with steamed broccoli - yum!
