BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2005
Maybe it was just the crust I bought, but I only needed about 12 minutes for it to become nice and golden brown. Good thing I was keeping an eye on it. I don't like bacon, so I skipped all the steps involved there, and instead cooked the chicken in olive oil and then shredded it. I added a bit extra cheese, but forgot the cilantro. It was still very tasty, but I think next time I would take other's suggestions to use green onions.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
Really delicious and different. I subbed ground ginger and used a garlic press, so there wasn't any need to process them together. I didn't have any bay leaves or turmeric, but I think it was fine without. I also didn't grind up the cashews, just left them chopped. I used fat-free sour cream instead of yogurt, and for the heavy cream, I subbed 1/3 cup skim milk and a few tablspoons of margarine. This probably made it considerably more healthy, and the dish was still very creamy. At the end of the cooktime, I mixed brown basmati rice right into the chicken mixture, and it was delicious. My husband ate the leftovers in tortillas the next day and said it tasted even better after having time to sit. I will make this again.

Favorite Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
I was scaling this recipe down to 2 servings, so I didn't see any point in opening a whole thing of dry onion soup mix just to use a 1/4 of it. Instead, I cooked the lentils in vegetable broth. I left out the olive oil and used some leftover green onion (again, didn't want to use 1/4 of a regular onion) that I threw in at the end of the cook time. My red lentils soaked up the broth within 20 minutes (didn't use a pressure cooker), so I added 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup skim milk when I added the lemon juice. I used 1/2 tbsp of dried parsley and went a bit heavier on the black pepper. Overall, this was a pretty quick lunch. Not something I'd want to eat over a few days, but as a one time midday meal, it was good (and healthy!).

Easy Cheddar Biscuits with Fresh Herbs

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
I didn't actually use fresh herbs, but these were still good. I used both dried rosemary and parsley, as well as fat-free sour cream. I forgot to brush them with the egg, but they still turned out fine. Very easy to throw together.

Spicy Polynesian Wrap

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
So good! My curry was of the yellow-not-so-spicy variety, so I added probably just shy of 1/4 cup of bottled Thai Chili Sauce to the chicken while it was cooking. The chicken marinated for only 45 minutes, but it turned out fine. I added the coconut and green onion directly to the chicken mix when it was done cooking, and used premade lime juice. I did not use anywhere near the full amount of veg. oil. Overall, we thought this was tasty and very filling.

Couscous with Chickpeas and Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
This is good, but I think it would be pretty plain if I hadn't added a few things. I had 1/2 an 1 oz envelope of dry onion soup mix to use up, so I added that along with dried parsley and some chili powder. I chopped the carrots instead of grating them, vegetable broth, and I used whole wheat cous cous bought in bulk at the natural food store (way cheaper). I did a mix of green onions and regular onion, since I had just a little of both around. I loved how easy it was to make this dish-- probably 15 minutes start to finish.

Mom's Big Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
Very delicious. I halved the recipe (so I guess that means I have to make it again, now that I have half a pkg. of onion soup hanging around). Instead of water, I used lactose-free skim milk. I don't know what difference it made, but I thought I'd try it. Did a bit extra ketchup and mustard, using the spicy brown variety. I mixed the green onions (sliced) right into the burgers. I didn't have pepperjack cheese, so I used mozzarella. I'm sure pepperjack would have been better, and unfortunately, I had no avocado! I love avocados on my burgers, so that's what drew me to the recipe. This is really easy, and great with macaroni or potato salad.

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
Very good. I used red lentils, roma tomatoes and used quite a bit of black pepper. I cut the salt down to 1/3 tsp. I sprinkled a bit of parmesan cheese on top right before putting it in the oven. I didn't have to drain any water off of the lentils before adding the broccoli, as red lentils seem to soak a lot of it up. The lentils made for a sort of interesting texture, but this was easy to throw together and tasty.

Mexican Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
This was really good, but instead of fresh corn, I did one can of creamed corn and one drained can of kernel corn. I used veggie broth instead of chicken, and celery flakes instead of regular celery because that's what I had. I added some green pepper and did a full 6 oz. can of green chiles. I added a touch more oregano, and some chili powder and cayenne pepper. However, I only needed 1 cup of milk. I don't know if it was because I used the creamed corn, but 1 cup of milk was definitely enough. Overall, this was tasty, and I'm sure I will make it again. Went together quickly.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
This was so easy and a great way to use up some extra zuchinni (and healthier than if I'd just made zuchinni bread like I'd originally planned). I made my own marinara sauce and spread the mixture out over one large loaf of French bread, which I then cut in half to make two huge sandwiches. I didn't have any mozzarella, but monteray jack worked just fine. I will definitely make this again.

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
Neither of us were wild about this soup. It was just OK. All I could taste was the red wine vinegar. I left out the mushrooms (maybe that was my problem, but I don't like them), but upped the bamboo shoots to make up for it. I used dried cilantro, but it probably could have used more than what I put in (around a tsp). I used vegetable broth, and I thought the chicken itself was really good. I liked having it instead of pork.

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2005
Delicious. I really liked having the leeks in there. I had 1.21 pounds of meat, so I upped the marinade (using light soy sauce) a little bit, and used a large carrot. We ate this over basmati rice and it was great.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
The only reason why I'm knocking off a star is that the cooktime in this recipe is wrong, so I'm glad I read the reviews beforehand. I cooked these 30 minutes covered and about 35 uncovered and they turned out great. I used pre-made lemon juice (around half a cup) and just sprinkled the parmesan cheese on top without really measuring, until it looked right. We ate this with the Broccoli with Garlic and Cashews recipe on this site, and it made a great dinner.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
This sauce is the best, and I would use it on all sorts of vegetable or even chicken. I used light soy sauce and margarine, added a bit more cashews and kept everything else the same. I had some leftover sauce that I saved and I'm going to eat it on some vegetables today. We ate this with the Garlic Red Potaotes recipe on this site, and it was a great dinner.

Brown Sugar Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
Since I used 1 cup chocolate chips and no walnuts, this came out like really good cookie bars. I went a touch lighter on the salt, used low-fat margarine, and did 1/3 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup white. Very tasty.

Quick and Easy Spinach Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
Delicious! I only had monteray jack cheese, and that was fine. I also sprinkled in a little bit of oregano to the mix. I used a 13.5 oz. can of pizza crust, and it worked out ok, but I know if I'd used the 10 oz. can as suggested, the ingredients would have been better distributed. I used fresh spinach and it was gone within two hours between the three of us.

Caribbean Turkey Burgers with Tropical Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
These were good, but seemed like they needed a little something more. The only thing I changed was using lime juice instead of orange, since that is what I had. I cooked them up on a grill pan and we ate them on whole wheat buns. My husband thought it made it better to add BBQ sauce to his. Overall, I thought these were good, but I have made better turkey burgers (like the "Actually Delicious" and the Mexican turkey burger recipes on this site.)

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
I halved this recipe and ate it with spinach and herb flavored tortillas. It was really good, but maybe a touch too spicy. Also seemed like it needed a touch more salsa to make it less dry, but overall, this was insanely quick to make and tasty.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
Surprisingly very delicious. I cut my chicken into strips, and instead of using the full teaspoon of garlic salt, I did 1/2 tsp. and then did a bit of additional garlic powder cos I am trying to cut back on my salt intake. I was out of oregano, so I did 3/4 tsp. of Italian seasoning and upped the rosemary a bit. We ate this over whole wheat spaghetti, and it was delicious. I think using high quality balsamic makes a big difference.

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2005
Very tasty! Halved the recipe, used turkey pepperoni, 8 oz. of sauce and discovered that they're less greasy when cooked with non-stick spray instead of margarine. Very easy and quick. Loved them.
