Light Avocado Egg Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
I love egg salad and I love avocados, so I was happy to find this recipe and excited to try it. It was bland and dry. I would not recommend this to anyone, and I'm not sure how the recipe could fixed to make it better.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
I followed the recipe except for a couple of changes: Instead of 1/2 cup butter, I used 1/4 cup Smart Balance butter spread I added a generous amount of garlic I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour I added a pinch of red pepper It was absolutely wonderful! My version was healthier but oh, it was just so good!

Alisha's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
With the changes I made, my family loved this. I liked it OK. What I did differently: 1/2 cup of cheese blended with the mashed potato mixture; 1/2 sauteed onion added; 3 cloves garlic added. What I'd change in the future -- try to figure out how the make the mashed mixture so the texture's not so gluey!

Marshmallow Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This is just way too sweet for my family -- even my tweens, who love sweets, didn't finish their portion. We love apple crisp but the marshmallows in this variation almost made our teeth hurt.

Chef John's Turkey Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
This is a superb recipe! I followed it closely other than... didn't have garam masala, and the closest market didn't either, so I used some Rogan Josh seasoning. These were wonderful.

Breakfast Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I'd give it 5 stars with my changes! We use sausage (veggie sausage for my daughter who doesn't eat pork) and salsa. We use more cheese and about half the eggs. My DH & kids love this one! It's a snap to make these in bulk and pull them out when needed.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
OMG this is absolutely fabulous! We had this recipe on New Year's Day and everyone, from the nine-year-old on up, absolutely loved it. We made a marmalade and honey mustard-based sauce and it was hard not to lick the plate. We did follow the suggestion about pulsing the coconut in the food processor and it worked very well. I would give this 10 stars if I could!

That Addicting Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
I've used & enjoyed dozens of recipes from this site... and had a few fall short. This is too sweet, greasy & just has no redeeming taste!

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Really good with modifications! Needs more salt, lime, cilantro. Followed others' suggestions and drained the watermelon in a colander. With my changes, it's a 5 star!

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This is the best recipe I have found on this site and I've found quite a few. We double the mango and avocado, add more lime juice and garlic too. But oh, is it good! We love it plain and so do our guests. It's also good with chicken and fish! Tonight we're having it on fish tacos. YUM. It's pretty labor intensive but we get our whole family involved and it's kind of fun. You will NOT regret making this. The only problem is to stop yourself from making it all the time!

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Wow, this is just terrific! We had bok choy in the garden so tried this on a whim. We subbed Splenda for the sugar and doubled the almonds instead of using chow mein noodles. I do suggest cutting the dressing in half -- there was a ton left in the bottom on the bowl. My mouth is watering just thinking about this salad -- I may need to make it again today!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Just okay. Not creamy enough, and tasted like something was missing.

Mound Bars

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
My kids & I (they're 9 & 10) thought this was way too rich with all of the chocolate. We decided that next time we will use more coconut and just drizzle the chocolate over the top -- maybe use half of the recommended amount. We did follow the recommendation to put the coconut down and then pour the sweetened condensed milk on top, and that worked well.

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This is, hands down, the best grilled chicken I have ever eaten. So moist, juicy and flavorful! I am picky and very seldom do I give five stars -- and usually I have to modify the recipe to suit myself. Not this one though. Try it, you'll like it!

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was just OK. I didn't need to cook it for 22 hours -- I think it would have been soup if I had! It was very, very salty, and I like salt.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
These are good. Most of my family doesn't like green pepper, so we omit it -- and to make it healthy, we double the ingredients other than ground beef, and we add an amount of cooked (from dried) beans to "healthy it up."

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This was okay but not all that -- after the rave reviews, I was expecting to have my socks knocked off. Although my family of four liked it, I will keep looking for an outstanding recipe. For one thing, it was just way too sweet.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I used the suggestions others made about additional ingredients and seasonings and wow -- we all loved this! We don't like green peppers so we used all yellow. Planned to use ground turkey but after checking out the price, used extra lean ground beef instead. We did serve with some light sour cream and Thai chili paste on the side for DH and I (we like it hot). Our 8 & 10 year old daughters loved it as much as we did. We have it for dinner yesterday and it goes in thermoses for lunch tomorrow! A real keeper -- healthy, tasty, and easy.

Brown Rice Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
The Velveeta negates the healthy choice of making brown rice. And why canned mushrooms instead of fresh? This is truly awful!
