Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
Very good and refreshingly light!! I adapted this according to my picky husband's taste -- used parmesan instead of goat cheese; sauteed arugula with garlic and whole grape tomatoes and added shrimp to complete the dish. I'll definitely make this again!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
This was very good despite my attempt to make it healthy. Here's my changes -- used sweet Italian turkey sausage; used Boca crumbles instead of ground beef; used 1 15 oz. can diced tomato instead of tomato sauce because that's all I had; used red wine instead of water; added a scant 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon (which I later regretted as that was all I could taste--had to add a LOT more salt and Italian seasoning to remove the taste); used a mixture of tofu Italian shredded cheese and shredded mozzarella; didn't bother with the parsley. I wouldn't bother with the fennel seeds either as they could not be tasted. I made the sauce in advance and froze it until I had time to put together the lasagna. My husband wasn't too thrilled with it but he's pretty picky so I wouldn't go by his taste buds. I'll make it again when I have time though.

Creole Chicken I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2003
Well I liked this but my husband didn't. I don't think it was due to the changes I made. Used shrimp instead of chicken; used cajun seasoning instead of salt; added 1 c. chicken bouillon; used low fat Polish sausage. Even with my changes I felt there was something missing. Maybe a bay leaf would help. Unfortunately I won't be making this again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 29, 2003
Very good (but this is your standard apple pie). Made some changes of course. Didn't use lattice--topped with a whole crust. Made filling in advance--used 7 apples (granny smith, rome and jonagold). Spiced it up with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon; 1/4 tsp. nutmeg; 1/8 tsp. cardamom. Filling took about 1/2 hour to prepare. My mom said I can make the apple pies for the family from now on. I'll definitely make this again.

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 22, 2003
Made some changes to this recipe to make it easier and healthier--chopped asparagus into bite-size pieces and sauteed in about 2T olive oil with garlic about 5 min. Add 1 stick low fat marg., lemon juice and frozen shrimp. Served over mini ziti and sprinkled with parmesan. Left out mushrooms as my husband doesn't like them. Using my version the meal is considerably lower in fat and you eliminate a step by not steaming asparagus. Taste was very fresh, light and healthy. Will definitely make this again next spring!

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
Very good! I used 1 lb. lump crab meat (a bit too much now that I tasted it) and to save on fat I used low fat crescent rolls for the crust. Sliced nicely too. Even my picky husband liked it. Will definitely make this again.

Oklahoma Cheese Grits

Reviewed: May 5, 2003
YUMMMMM! Best grits I've ever had and SO easy. Made them for a family celebration yesterday. To save on fat I used low fat Velveeta and low fat margarine. Even my grits-hating father liked them. The grits are not gritty at all--nice and smooth--and they are a bit fluffy. I'll definitely make these again!

Balsamic Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2003
DELISH!! I've made this twice now. I doubled the recipe for my husband and I was we're pigs when it comes to pasta. I used cheese ravioli and a 1/2 c. prosciutto and 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar. Flavors meld together nicely. Will definitely make this again and again as it's easy, delicious and fast!

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
Very good! The only thing I didn't add was salt and I did add 1 clove minced garlic. Was a bit thick. I think I'll omit flour next time. For dippers I used broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and green apples! The five of us ate almost the whole pot!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
Very good! I adapted this recipe according to a few other reviews. Cut sugar to 1 1/2 c.; cut oil to 1/2 c.; added 1/2 t. nutmeg and 1/4 t. ginger; used 1/2 c. pecans in cake and 1/2 c. on frosting; used 1 1/2 cans of frosting to frost top only as I was feeling lazy. Made this for Easter dinner and everyone enjoyed it.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2003
YUM!!! This was so good and SO easy. I didn't have a problem with the cake running over but it did stick a bit to the cast iron skillet. Next time I'll try using no-stick spray. I made this for my mom's birthday and she and the rest of the family enjoyed it!

Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
This was very good and easy. I let the hashbrowns almost defrost; used low fat celery soup; low fat sour cream; 3/4 c. soy ched. and 3/4 c. reg. ched. Still a good amount of flavor using healthier alternatives. I'll make this again. Even my picky husband liked it.

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
This was pretty tasty. Here are the changes I made--2 med. size red pot., not peeled; 1 onion; 2 stalks celery; 1 can creamed corn; drained corn; 1/4 c. low fat marg.; 1 c. water. 2 cubes bouillon made this too salty. Next time I'll use 1 can low salt chicken broth and omit water. My husband thought this was ok but he's not a fan of stew for dinner. I'll still make this again though because it's different and easy.

Cajun Style Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2003
My husband and I did not care for these burgers that much. Instead of the ingredients enhancing the flavor of the meat it hid the beef taste and they were a bit salty. We didn't use the barbecue sauce but I doubt we'd feel differently about the burgers if we had. I won't be making these again. The "Biggest Bestest Burgers" on this site is a winner.

Indian Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
My rating is based on my preparation so it's not an entirely fair rating but I wouldn't take the time to prepare the recipe according to the directions. I dumped all the ingredients into the crock pot (used dehydrated onion and boneless, skinless chicken breasts). I thought this was pretty good but my husband didn't care for it. This would've turned out much better had I sauteed the spices.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
I substituted boneless, skinless chicken breasts. My husband and I did not found this to be average. I doubt I'll make it again.

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
I didn't care for this recipe. It was rather bland. I cut back on the broth and wine and added a little spagetti sauce I had leftover. Zucchini was left out because my husband didn't like it and I used turkey sausage to save on fat. And to save time I didn't cook the sausage before hand and used dehydrated onions. The fettucine is a poor choice. You can't get any of the sauce. Macaroni or gnocchi pasta would be a better choice.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
This was very tasty. I made this for my family and they all enjoyed this. Even my picky husband. I used low sodium/low fat mushroom soup and low fat sour cream; skipped the chives because I didn't have them and skipped the parsley because I forgot to buy it. The parsely would add nice color to the dish. I'll definitely make this again!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2003
This was very good and very easy. I made this sort of low fat and tweaked it a bit to add extra flavor. I used mild turkey sausage instead of ground meat and add 1/2 c. pesto to cottage cheese and I used the no-boil noodles. I think next time I'll use ricotta as there was a tangy flavor to the lasagna that I'd rather not have. Still a good, fast recipe though.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
This was very good. I finally found a recipe for M&C that I can make low fat, that's easy and still tastes good. I used low fat marg.; low fat sour cream; low fat cottage cheese and 1/2 low fat cheddar and half regular. Even my picky husband liked it. I'll definitely make this again.
