Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
This soup is absolutely wonderful!!! Tastes great on a chilly winter day - actually, it would taste good on any day! I made a few changes: I used ½ Spicy Italian and ½ regular sausage and added some chopped onion and extra garlic when I cooked the sausage. I also used low sodium beef broth and I didn’t add the extra salt to the soup (that the actual recipe called for). This soup was spectacular. I will make this soup again and again… Thanks!!!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Wow! This was fantastic!!! I am impressed how well this turned out! I made only a few small changes: I added 2 extra Tbsp of curry powder, used Indian Chili powder (instead of the cayenne pepper), I used lite coconut milk and reduced the amount of lemon (per other reviewers) and this dish was wonderful. I will definitely add this to my rotation to make on a regular basis!!! Thank you!!!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This recipe was strangely…DELICIOUS!!! I was a little skeptical about trying this recipe but with all the high ratings I decided to give it a try. This definitely has a unique flavor, but it is really tasty and healthy too! I followed the directions exactly. Next time when I make these I think I am going to follow other reviewers and use black beans. I imagine it will taste great with them too. These also freeze beautifully. To re-heat I just wrapped them in a paper towel and threw it in the microwave for a couple minutes. Thanks for a FANTASTIC recipe!!!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
This was very good, however I did make a few changes. I didn’t add any cinnamon and I reduced the chicken broth like other reviewers. I had some shredded turkey on hand so I used that instead of ground turkey. To make it a little thicker I mixed a little cornstarch and water to the chili and that seemed to help. I also didn’t put any cheese on it so it was a little healthier – maybe next time I will find some low-fat cheese and add it. Thanks for a good recipe!

Taco Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
This salad is fantastic! I have been making this for a while and I love it! The only changes that I made to this salad is that I used light/low fat Nacho Cheese Doritos and reduced fat cheese – you can’t tell the difference at all when it is all mixed together! I also used Western dressing, it tastes really good. The actual recipe states to refrigerate overnight – DO NOT do this because it will get soggy. Since I can’t eat the whole salad at once I chop up all the ingredients and keep in separate baggies and when you are ready to eat just throw everything into your salad dish (I usually heat up the taco meat in the microwave for a minute) and you are ready to eat. WONDERFUL!!!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
FANTASTIC! I have been eating these for the past week. I love them! I omitted the oregano and used fresh cilantro and extra lime. The cilantro and lime make the taco fantastic. I will definitely make these again and again!

Curried Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
Looks like I am out of the norm compared to the other reviewers. But I’m sorry, I just didn’t care for this recipe. I thought it was okay - nothing special. I just didn’t care for the flavors. I love curry recipes too so I was a little disappointed. I brought some to my mom and she didn’t care for it either. I would just give this recipe 2 stars however, since it was healthy, easy to make and all of the directions were accurate I will give it 3.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2006
This recipe is GREAT! I did make a few changes: I diced up some onion and garlic and sautéed it in the oil. Then I cut the chicken breasts into bite size pieces and sprinkled some hot chili powder on the chicken pieces prior to browning. I then added the tomatoes with green chili peppers, beans and I used frozen corn and it turned out fantastic. I did try to freeze it and it freezes really good. However, I would suggest if you do freeze it you may want to add the beans in closer to the end of the cooking time because mine were a little soft after reheating. GREAT DISH!!!

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This was a great recipe! I combined some ideas from previous reviewers and this came out very good! I halved the recipe because everyone said there was way too much sauce. But even after halving the recipe I still had way too many nooldles - next time I will cut back even more on the noodles. I used 3 Tbsp of butter and sautéed the onion and mushroom and omitted the peppers. I used 1 can of fat-free cream of chicken soup (instead of mushroom), 1 cup of chicken broth and omitted the water all together. I added about ¼ cup of milk (to make it a little creamier) and added about 2 oz of light Velveeta cheese. I did not add the Worcestershire sauce or sherry but I did add ¼ white cooking wine. I also added some frozen green peas, turkey, salt and pepper and baked it. It turned out fantastic! Just like Stouffers!

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
I had my Thanksgiving a week late so I decided to use my leftover turkey for this soup and I will be making this every year - this soup is great! I only made a few changes: I followed some other reviewers and added some shredded carrots and frozen corn for color. I also used about 3-4 Tbsp of read bacon bits and used fat-free half & half. I think the next time I make this I may try to make it a little lower in fat and follow the previous reviewer and cut the butter and flour amount in half and use only 1 cup of fat-free half & half. This soup is great and I will definitely be making this again!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
This soup was wonderful, even though I made a few alterations. I did have to cook this longer than the recipe suggested because the beans were still hard after the time suggested. I waited until the end to add the salt because I didn’t want the soup to be too salty and I did need to add it. It was still lacking a little flavor so I added some chicken base and a little more pepper and then it tasted great. This soup also freezes great - I have been eating it all week! Thanks for a great addition to my cookbook!

Mayonnaise Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
This cake was delicious! It was very moist and easy to make. I lost my old recipe and was happy to find this one. I only made a few changes: I used 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of vanilla. For “frosting” my mother always cut a piece of cake and then put a dollop of cool whip with some sliced bananas on top (didn’t do it on the whole cake so it didn’t get soggy) and it tasted fantastic!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
I thought this stew was wonderful. I noticed that some of reviewers are saying that the stew isn’t too flavorful. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and added wine instead of water. I decided to use all white wine but then I only had 1 ½ cups so I added ¼ cup of red wine. I used the additional ¼ cup to melt the bouillon cubes in. I also added a little more cornstarch to make the stew a little thicker. I thought the stew had a fantastic flavor and it was very easy to make. I will definitely make this stew again!

Simple Peanut Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2005
This is great! I have been making my squash this way for years. I cut mine up in about 1" pieces and put it in a microwave dish, cover with plastic wrap (leave a small opening to allow for steam) and microwave. It turns out great and it is a lot quicker than the oven.

Parmesan Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
This recipe was very good - it was sloppy but it's worth it! It was nice to use up the extra tomatoes that my neighbor gave me. Thanks, I will make this again.

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
YUM!!! This chicken is fantastic. I only made a couple changes. I cut down on the oil and I marinated the chicken for about 2 hours. A few reviewers were complaining that this was a little salty but I used Mrs Dash lemon pepper which is no salt and just used regular Cajun seasoning. Then I threw it on the grill. FANTASTIC!!!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
This was very good! A neighbor went on vacation and he told me to help myself to his garden! He had a lot of green beans and cherry tomatoes so I found this recipe on the ingredient search. I omitted the garlic salt and sautéed 2 cloves of garlic and a small shallot (like another reviewer) in the butter and then added the tomatoes. I then added salt, pepper and basil and then I placed the green beans in the skillet so they could get a little of the spices cooked in them. Thanks for a great recipe!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
This is great! It is quick and easy too! I made a few alterations to the recipe. I browned the chicken and chopped it up in small pieces as other reviewers suggested. For the artichokes, I drained them and used a paper towel to squeeze out the excess liquid in the artichokes. I couldn’t find garlic pepper at the store so I minced 1 fresh garlic clove and added some pepper. I mixed it with the cheese and mayo, put it on top of the chicken and then I baked it. My mother who doesn’t like artichokes even liked this! She took a small bite and said, “Oh, this is good! It has a really good flavor. Can I have some more?” I couldn’t have said it better myself!
