Creamy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
Waaaaaay too rich, and seemed to be lacking in something. I used fat free sour cream, sweet onion instead of green and used the cubed frozen potatoes as another reviewer suggested. We ate small side dish portions of this, but were none too thrilled. Ended up tossing the rest of it. It wasn't inedible or anything, we just weren't fans of it at all.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
Mmm...very tasty. Instead of crushed croutons, I crushed ritz crackers and added some dried parsley and basil. I used Creole seasoning instead of Cajun, and my mustard was of the dijon variety. Instead of cooking them on a skillet (no patience for that constant turning), I baked them in the oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes and they turned out perfectly. The end result was very good and I will definitely make these again.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: May 18, 2005
Delicious. I used marinara sauce as suggested, and added some Old Bay seasoning as suggested. I omitted the salt, but kept everything else the same. This made a few more than 12 patties, but some of mine were small. This was actually pretty easy to throw together and we ate it with garlic bread.

Mongolian Beef I

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
I let the meat sit in the sauce for just over an hour in the fridge, and used garlic powder instead of fresh. My green onions were already pre-cut into small slices, and I used 3 carrots since mine were sort of small. Otherwise, I kept everything the same and we ate it over white rice, as suggested. We ended up wishing I had made more!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
I scaled this down to 1.25 pounds of turkey. I did this the super quick way and used dried onions and parsely as well as garlic powder. As suggested in other reviews, I added some worchestershire sauce and used seasoning salt instead of regular salt, but I only used 1/3 tsp. I also added a bit of white pepper and used an entire egg instead of just the white. I made two gigantic burgers and broiled them for 13 minutes on each side. Very big, and very tasty.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
I doubled the recipe and used fat free cream cheese, and substituted dried cilantro. To save time, I just warmed the tortillas in the microwave. I didn't have any jalepenos, but I would probably use anaheim peppers instead. To make up for it, I added quite a bit of cayenne pepper. Overall, this was a little onion heavy, but really easy and quite tasty. The cream cheese was a nice touch.

Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
This was pretty good. I used whole wheat cous cous and free range chicken broth, which has reduced sodium. Instead of a jalepeno, I used an Anaheim pepper since they are spicier than your standard green chile, but not really hot. I subbed ground ginger, added some yellow pepper, and ended up having to use a bit more cornstarch than was called for. Overall, I liked it and surprisingly, so did my 13 month old.

Biggest Bestest Burger

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
Really good. Scaled the recipe in half and it made 2 large burgers. We didn't put any cheese on top, and used dehydrated onions instead, but kept everything else the same. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to lay off the additional salt cos the teriyaki sauce has plenty. I will definitely make this again.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
Oh so tasty. I scaled the recipe in half, and did a mix of my own seasoning. I only have two complaints: I only need 30 minutes to cook my fries, and I had them cut like thick steak fries. Secondly, and this is not the recipe's fault, after I cooked them, I wrapped them in aluminum foil to keep them warm while I put something else in the oven, and they got a little soggy. Otherwise, they were good, and my 13 month old thought they were intense, but tasty.

Mexican Beef Supreme

Reviewed: May 13, 2005
Tasty, though I used regular picante sauce instead of green salsa. I had 1 1/3 pounds of meat, so I adjusted the other ingredients accordingly. Instead of jalepeno, I used one anaheim pepper. This smells great, tastes really good and we ate it over white rice that had a bit of chili powder, oregano, salt/pepper and garlic powder added.

Nanny's Goulash

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
I substituted sweet onion for red, and yellow pepper instead of mushrooms. Kept everything else the same. Served it mixed with elbow macaroni, but the 16 oz box was a bit too much. Probably go with 8 or 12 oz. next time, but this time it was still fine, just a tad noodle heavy. Still, this is very good and I love all the veggie goodness. My 13 month old loved it, especially the zucchini.

Spicy Noodles - Malay Style

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
Delicious. I used some bottled Thai Chili Sauce instead of the paste and did pea pods instead of just peas. Used a touch more chili sauce than called for and left out the additional salt, but kept everything else the same. Definitely a keeper.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
I love this recipe, but since I'm lactose intolerant, I make it with bbq sauce and lactose-free cheese. Great stuff, though I have had to adjust the baking time for the crust, as I had troubles with it burning.

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
I'm lactose intolerant, so I thought I'd give this a go since I had some semi-sweet chocolate chips in the house (which are dairy-free, at least the variety I bought.) Overall, I thought this was pretty tasty, but would benefit from frosting, which I didn't have the ingredients for. It's a little crumbly, but other than that, it's great. I cooked it in a 7x11 dish and 35 minutes was perfect timing.

Black-Eyed Peas and Tortillas

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
Very tasty, and pretty easy to whip up too. I didn't have veggie broth, so I used chicken instead. I'm not a huge fan of jalepenos, so I used green chiles instead. Ate this in the tortillas with homemade gucamole and with a side of Mexican rice.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
Good, but I left out the olives because I don't like them. I used frozen broccoli, and since I didn't have enough egg noodles, I used fettucini instead. I went a little light on the sour cream (used about 1.5 cups of fat-free), and then I added a soup can full of skim milk. The end result was good-- my husband called it "Curry Alfredo." I'll probably make this again.

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Tasty, though I only used 14 oz. of salmon total. Instead of evaporated milk, I used 1.5 cups of my skim lactose free milk and 1/3 cup of margarine, and it worked out great! (Cuts the fat significantly too!) Kept everything else the same.

Chicken, Garlic, and Sundried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
Good, but ended up getting tired of the sun-dried tomatoes, which I didn't expect. I used rainbow rotini and Parmesan cheese instead of the farfalle and Romano. The sauce was very good-- used my lactose-free milk. I'm sure I'll make it again sometime, but maybe do something different with the tomatoes.

Sorta Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
Delicious. I used only 16 oz. of meat, but still used a full can of beef broth cos I didn't know what I was going to do with 2/3 cup of broth. I added a little pepper and cooked covered for one hour, uncovered for 20 minutes, served with mashed potatoes, and it was perfect.

Easy Beef Strogonoff

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
I'm only upping this to two stars because it was edible, though not enjoyable. It was way too onion heavy, and despite adding dijon mustard and worchestershire sauce as was suggested, it still did not have a lot of flavor. I left out the mushrooms, but I doubt that was the problem. Very disappointing.
