Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
Admittedly I did not eat the cookies myself as I made them for my husband and his work... but judging by how quickly they disappeared, they were pretty delicious! Only thing I noticed was that I had to leave them in a little longer than indicated- between 15-18 minutes.

Dill Dip III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Excellent dip! Substituted 0% Greek Yogurt for the mayo and used fat free sour cream to make it healthier. Huge success! I'm not a fan of store bought dips, let alone dill, but this was delicious!

Mandarin Orange Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Had a lot of dip left over, which was fine- I had a fair amount of fruit left! Even tasty on its own, it didn't go to waste! Main difference I made was I used plain 0% Greek Yogurt to add extra protein and cut down on sugar.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
The punch was almost gone by the time I had some! Everyone was asking what was in it, it was so light and refreshing! A huge success!

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Though I can understand how some people wouldn't consider this a recipe as it involves a bottle of your fave bbq and no other recipes, cooking instructions are still important! As brainless as cooking ribs sounds, I've never had them turn out for me before... these were FANTASTIC! I did as other suggested and for the last 15 minutes, I removed the foil, added more sauce and they turned out ooey gooey good!

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I made this pie for my husband before heading out of town. I partially cooked it and left him instructions to preheat the oven and put it in for another 15 minutes- cause nothing beats homemade apple pie with vanilla icecream! All I heard was "OMG, SO GOOD!" via text and he managed NOT to eat the whole thing in one sitting (I only made a 4") Will make this again!

Cream Cheese Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I used this recipe when making an apple strusel pie for my husband before I head out of town. I happened to have all the ingredients in the house and it was super simple to make! I 1/2 the recipe as I had a 4" pie plate and it was perfect. Now if only there could be a recipe like this without all the fat!

Ras el Hanout

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I had most of the ingredients already, so it was nice being able to make this combination. I did reduce the amount of cinnamon as someone else suggested to 1/4 tsp and (though I've never even had it before) and it was perfect to my tasing (and I love cinnamon) I think anything more would have overpowered the other spices. Also used cumin seed as I didn't have gound (or so I though- found some after!) I plan on making this spice in a big batch and give some for Xmas!

Moroccan Lamb with Shiraz Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
The smallest rack I could find had 8 bones and my husband said it wasn't enough! (it was just the 2 of us!!!) As I was doing the wine reduction, I added some carrots and cooked them during that time- turned out quite delicious with almost like a glaze! Served with garlic mashed potatoes... FANTASTIC first experience eating (let alone cooking!) lamb! Will definitely make again! Husband didn't even complain about the "bite" in the spice- the sweeter reduction made a nice compliment to the spice rub! *EDIT* Made similar dish tonight with boneless skinless chicken breast- rubbed with the spice, seared and baked just like this recipe. Added in sliced onion with the wine/honey and it was quite delicious. As much as I LOVE this recipe, the cost of the lamb (not to mention nutritional value overload!!!) makes it unreasonable to have it on a regular basis. Nice to know it works just as well with chicken- and I want to try it with a pork roast!

Melon Ambrosia

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
We LOVE these 3 melons, but had never done melon balls (though wanted to try!) The recipe is simple and is light and refreshing! Will have this regularly!

Spiced Pears and Pomegranate

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Though I halved the fruit portion of the recipe, I kept the other measurements the same. A little overpowering, but still delicious! I also added 1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger for some extra punch and it was great! Also substituted a packet of Stevia for the sugar. And I had to use lime juice instead of lemon as I didn't feel like going to the grocery store again! Don't know if I'd make again as removing the fruity seeds was a bit of a pain... I had just wanted to photograph a pomegranate and had to use it for something! Would recommend, though! Very interesting combination of flavours!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Delicious, easy, and almost had everything in the house! Used fresh rosemary and omitted the basil (as I didn't have) and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, but it was still d-lish!!! As I was only making a serving for 2, I didn't feel like opening a whole can of tomatoes for only a portion of the can, so I used 1 garden fresh tomato, diced, and if anything, it was probably better! Will definitely make again!

Low-Fat Orange Dream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
DELICIOUS and SO simple to make!!! I didn't want to buy a whole box of graham crackers, so bought the box of crumbs. I also used 2 mini pans, so figured 1/2 tbsp of crumbs per inch of the pan (so 3" pan = 1 1/2 tbsp of crumbs) As I had a LOT of filling left over, I seperated the rest in tupperware containers for lunch during the week. As I had some nice strawberries already, I went with a strawberry flavour Jell-o and it was delicious! I also added some fresh strawberries when I blended the cheese and it gave a more authentic berry flavour. I also don't like the Whip Topping, so used low fat Greek Yogurt and it was very creamy and I imagine the consistency is similar- plus Greek Yogurt is so healthy for you! I look forward to making this during the holiday season!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
FANTASTIC recipe! I'd never tried spaghetti squash before, but had always been curious about it! Used someone elses suggestion with putting water in the dish while it's baking and it came out perfect! Added the tomatos too early, but it didn't change the taste! And, though I don't like olives, I barely noticed them! This will definitely be a regular meal and I look forward to playing with more recipes!

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Very delicious! I ended up using brown basmati rice as I didn't have quinoa, 2 tomatos, and I used 1 tsp cumin seed as I didn't have any ground. Turned out excellent! A light, fresh taste! The rest of the ingredient measurements were the same and we had a LITTLE left over and were only feeding 3! If this was a side dish and had something else with it, then maybe it could feed 6, but as a vegan meal, unless they had very small appetites, I can't see how only this would feed 6! The only reason we had left overs was because my husband had a chicken breast with it! Still excellent!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
This was the first meal I made with tofu and I wasn't disappointed! Tons of flavour but not overly spicy (husband doesn't like too spicy) Only a couple changes- used 3 roma tomatos instead of 4 and 350g of tofu (as that was the size of package) and it was about perfect for us! Only change I would probably make is dice the tofu and tomatoes a little smaller. Will definitely make this again- and maybe try it with chicken!

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
This was a great first experience! The couple changes I made was no oil to keep down fat, made up the spices as I didn't have what the recipe called for, and I used a forman grill as I ran out of propane the other night! I loved the taste and I imagine it's pretty difficult to mess up unless you overcook! I also used goat cheese which was delicious! Next time I'll probably add caramized onions and tomatos! Did find it a little difficult to eat as it seemed to want to "tear" in the direction of the underside "fans"- I found it difficult to bite through. Very filling and cheap to make- I'll be making this again!

Versatile Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
both my husband and I LOVED this recipe! I did make a couple changes in the basic recipe, which was adjusted to 3 servings: Whole wheat bread (I refuse to use white) and to keep the fat down, I used 1 whole egg and 1/4 cup whites, and 2 tbsp of low fat plain yogurt. After it baked, I mixed some fresh raspberries, blueberries, white chocolate, and slivered almonds. I didn't top it with the confectioners sugar, but mixed some in with some plain yogurt as a sauce. I look forward to making this again, but maybe trying it with diced apples, chopped pecan, and butterscotch chips!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
When I told my husband I was going to make crepes for breakfast, his initial response was "How? We don't have a crepe maker"... as it turns out, you don't need one!!! Amazingly easy and fast meal to make! The only changes I made was I used whole wheat flour as we don't have white in the house, and I added a packet of stevia as I was making them with strawberries and carob chips. All I have to say is YUM!!! I think this will be a staple for years to come! I also used both a frying pan to start and a flat grill to finish. I've never been able to flip things in one piece, so it was just a matter of flipping the pan over and letting gravity do the work- and it made things super fast: Start in the pan, flip & transfer to grill, start another. Move the first to a plate, second to the grill. Add more batter to a pan, fill the first with fruit and such, by the time it was done, the next crepes were ready to move down the assembly line! VERY fast!
