Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I was skeptical at first that so few ingredients could make a good soup. I was pleasantly surprised how good this is. I used red cabbage to get more nutritional bang and added red kidney beans for protein. The red cabbage turned the soup a pretty burgundy!

Hearty Turkey Stew with Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I liked this, but hubby wasn't too much of a fan. I used leftover turkey breast from the rosemary turkey recipe from this site. Instead of chicken broth, I made turkey broth from the carcass, peppercorn, carrots, celery, fresh thyme, and fresh rosemary.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I used just a turkey breast because it's just me and hubby. I brined it overnight. The breast was the most juicy and flavorful I've ever had. Good-bye to dry, tasteless turkey breast!

Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
This was very tasty. I had nothing but this for dinner. I did use less mayo/soup mixture than called for. Also, to make it healthier, I used Trader Joe's (no affiliation) reduced fat mayo--it's eggless, cholestrol free, 70% less fat than regular, and 35 calories per tsbp. It doesn't taste quite like regular (it's a bit more tart), but you can't really taste the difference when you mix in other flavors in it.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
These cookies don't spread like other recipes. So to make perfect circles that weren't overly mounded in the middle, I shaped rounded spoonfuls of dough with my fingers into thick hockey pucks (kind of like a cube, but with round sides). The cookies baken into perfect circles.

Fresh Blueberry Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
How much of a difference a half inch makes! I used a 9.5 inch pie plate instead of a 9, and was wishing I had used 6 cups of blueberries instead of 4. Tapioca produces much better results than cornstarch. I forgot to add butter to the filling. There was no adverse effect to the filling. In the future, I will probably leave this out on purpose to make a dent in the saturated fat. This is my preferred recipe for blueberry pie.

Cashew Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Very tasty. I marinated the chicken in honey mustard before grilling for more flavor.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
This was good, but not amazing. Adding cream to the sauce will help it be more substantial.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
This dish was just okay. My hubby and I weren't wow'd by this. It was healthy, but I'd probably won't bother making this again.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
The vinegar and lemon juice really tenderizes the meat, and the flavors go very well together. Trader Joes has the best ranch dressing I have found so far (no affiliation). It's organic, all natural ingredients, uses real buttermilk, has no high fructose corn syrup, has less fat than regular ranch, super creamy, and tastes great.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
SO SOFT AND CHEWY! This will be my go to recipe from now on. I did refridgerate the dough before baking in order to prevent the cookies from spreading too much. I also whipped the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, and made the cookies smaller because I knew if I used 1/4 cup of dough per cookie, I wouldn't be able to restrain myself from eating the whole thing.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Most people who gave this recipe a high rating did so with significant changes. The recipe as written has many flaws. Even though I used fresh broccoli, mine came out soggy. One onion is too over powering -- 1/2 an onion is plenty. Plus, 30 minutes was much too short. I needed to bake it for 50 minutes for the middle to set and for the crust to get flaky. The "Quiche" recipe on this site does not have any of these problems and can be modified to add broccoli. I will not be making this again.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
I used Ghiradelli cocoa powder. The quality really does make a difference. If your cake tastes bland, it may be the type of cocoa. The cake was moist and had a great flavor, but it was a little challenging to handle. It is delicate (light & airy) so taking it out of the pan and cutting it into 4 thin layers was difficult. To avoid losing the bottom half in the pan, butter and flour pan well, use parchment if possible, allow cake to cool slightly before removing, and be gentle.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
The marinate was good, but my husband and I could hardly taste it after the leg was done because it didn't penetrate most of the meat.

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
These are dangerous! I've never been impressed with any biscotti until I encountered this recipe. This is by far the most addicting baked good out of everything I have ever made. The only change I made was to add a little cinnamon and bake them for an extra 10 minutes at 200F to get them crunchy. The flavors are amazing! I was shocked whe my hubby, who hates anything with chunks, granted that these were good.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
My husband and I love curry, so I have tried many different curry recipes. This one is by far the best curry and will be my standard curry recipe from now on. I usually have to tweak recipes to suit our tastes, but I don't change a thing on this one.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
Followed the advice of previous reviewers to add 1/4 C brown sugar and 1T fresh lime juice. I love the refreshing taste of the lime. I also added carrots and potatoes instead of the cauliflower. I read a review for another recipe that curry seasoning should be cooked in oil along with the garlic and onion, so I did that as well. The end result was pretty good, but because I made many changes, I'm giving 4 stars.

Silky Sweet Potato Puree

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
Amazingly easy and delicious! I'm going to bake my sweet potatoes from now on instead of boiling. Baking causes water to evaporate, leaving an intensely sweet and flavorful potato. Absolutely no sugar needed. In the past, I've boiled my sweet potatoes, which made them lose a lot of their flavor. Pureeing in a food processor gave them a creamy and airy quality that I never got with mashing by hand. The only changes I made to make it healthier was to use fat free buttermilk, 1% milk, and half the butter. It was still unbelievably creamy with these substitutions. My husband, who doesn't care for sweet potatoes went back for thirds.
