Tasty Roasted Beets

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
I omitted the thyme (purely because I forgot about it), roasted for about 20 minutes and these were wonderful! I have had beets but haven't cooked them before, and will definitely use this recipe again next time I am cooking beets.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
My family loved this soup. It was quick and easy to make, and tasted better than any soup we have had at a restaurant. I made as directed using skim milk and sharp cheddar. I did substitute butter for margarine. Next time I will use reduced fat sour cream and cheese as well -- I fully expect that it will still taste amazing. We will definitely make again.

Easy Red Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
Very good sauce! I used a 29 oz can of tomato puree because that was what I had on hand, and threw in a drained 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes as well for a little chunkiness. I also decreased the olive oil to 3 TBSP to reduce the fat and found that to be a good amount. Served with Meatball Nirvana meatballs from this site for a very good supper! I do think if I were serving the sauce plain I would add in some more garden vegetables, but the sauce is very good as written without additions.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I did a 2:1 ratio of ground chuck/ground pork for these and they were amazing! Will definitely be making a double batch soon to freeze for quick meals in the future.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
These are great! I had not made bread by hand in a long time (I usually use the breadmaker for mixing the dough) and so if I can get it to come out right, anyone can! These were easy to make and delicious! I did not use the recommended amount of salt though, just sprinkled on a little coarse sea salt on without measuring. It seems like the whole amount would be WAY too much salt.

Spaghetti Italian

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very good restaurant quality spaghetti sauce! I used no salt added tomatoes and 32 oz of tomato sauce (4 8 oz cans) and did not add additional salt. Served over spaghetti instead of mixing it in. I simmered the sauce for a couple of hours and the recipe made 5 cups of sauce. This is now my go to spaghetti sauce recipe! I think next time I'll add in some mushrooms (just because we love them, it is perfect as is).

Delicious Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
This was so quick and easy to throw together and then to cook after a busy day. I ended up marinating for just over 24 hours. I left out the lemon pepper (I was out of it) but added a few splashes of lemon juice and some black pepper instead. My whole family loved it and my 5 year old finished a whole portion (unheard of for him!). I served with leftover brown rice and steamed broccoli for a dinner that was amazingly good, especially with such little prep and cooking time.

Pepper Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Very good! I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and reduced to 2 TBSP and used a sprinkle of dried parsley instead of fresh. I also diced the onions instead of wedging. Served over mini bowtie pasta as suggested by another reviewer. This is a quick and easy dinner if the chopping is done beforehand. Each serving is approximately 1 1/4 cups.

Mediterranean Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Very good! We didn't have much time so I let some chicken tenders marinate for about 20 minutes while we boiled up some potatoes (for mashed potatoes). Then threw the tenders and remaining marinade in the skillet and cooked them that way until done. I threw in some mushrooms along with the chicken and they tasted great with the marinade as well. I'll definitely make again!

My Canadian Friend's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Wow. This soup is amazing. My husband, 4 year old and I all LOVED it. I am so glad there are leftovers! (That doesn't speak to the soup, there are only 3 of us so we always have leftovers!) FYI: 1 serving is approximately 1 1/2 cups. Also, we made a bit healthier by only using 1 TBSP of olive oil, using low sodium chicken broth and no salt added tomatoes. I added in a few sprinkles of dried basil/oregano to make up for not having flavored tomatoes, but besides that I followed the recipe exactly. It was amazing (I know I've already said that but it deserves repeating!)

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Very good! Even my 4 year old loved it! I was afraid it would be too thick but it ended up being just right. I used 1/2 mild and 1/2 medium salsa because that is what I had on hand. I also omitted the salt (plenty of salt in the salsa!) and it was fine without.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
These were so good! We all loved them. Served with maple syrup (which the guys loved) or just a dab of light whipped cream. If you don't have allspice, you can substitute 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/2 tsp cinnamon for the tsp of allspice. We will definitely make these again!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Very good! I am sure the original recipe is amazing but trying to eat a little healthier here so I made some changes: I subbed applesauce for the oil and used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose flour. I decreased the sugar to 1 cup (for one loaf) and doubled the cinnamon and nutmeg. I made one loaf of bread to test out my modifications, which took about 50 minutes to bake. It was great!

Crispy Eggplant with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This was very good! I was looking for a healthy eggplant recipe for items I had on hand and this completely worked. I did have more egg mixture and parm cheese mixture than I needed, but maybe I just had a smaller eggplant. I followed the recipe exactly except for substituting my own spaghetti sauce. We served with spaghetti on the side, and my son and husband argued with me that it was fried! We will definitely be making this again.

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Very good. I tweaked the spices a little (a dash of paprika, red pepper, garlic powder) but kept everything else the same. My 4 year old who NEVER finishes his food ate his whole piece!

Parsley Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Very easy and very good! I did cut back to 1/4 cup on the butter and thought even that was a little much for us.

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Really good! I peeled and diced the eggplant and made into a casserole instead of stuffing, but besides that followed the recipe. I used Spaghetti Sauce Mix from this site as the tomato sauce. My entire family loved it and we will definitely be making again soon!

Tender Barbecued Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Very good! We used chicken drumsticks and some boneless thighs and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Cooked on high for about 5 hours and it was falling off the bone. We loved the touch of lemon.
