Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
Very good. I altered the recipe to make it more healthy--used 1 1/2 c. flour + 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour; 1/4 c. butter + 1/4 c. plain applesauce; 1/2 c. brown sugar; added 1 tsp. cinn. and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Took awhile for it to bake--about 70 min. Good way to use up old bananas!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This was delicious. I used fresh mushrooms and skipped the crust. Divided batter into muffin tins, baked then froze them. They reheated great! My family loved them.

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2001
This was very good. We don't have a grill yet so I seared these on the stove-top with the lid. Got a good crust on the steak and the garlic was tasty. To save on fat I used low-fat marg. I will definitely make this again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2001
These muffins are very good. To make them healthier, I replaced 1/2 c. flour w/ 1/2 c. whole wheat flour; used low fat margarine instead of butter; cut the sugar to 1/2 cup; used 1/4 tsp. cinnamon for more flavor. Muffins did very moist and flavorful. Will make again!!!

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2002
Very good. I used boneless, skinless breasts; dumped on all the olive oil and lemon juice then sprinkled both sides with the herb blend. Tasty and tender. Baked at 350 for 30 min.

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!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2001
Very good! I can NEVER get breasts thin enough to roll so I cut breasts in half almost all the way through and laid a piece of Healthy Choice Ham and provolone in the cut; sprinkled Italian breadcrumbs on bottom of dish; laid chicken on top and then sprinkled more bread crumbs on chicken. Very tasty!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2000
This was pretty good. I have a habit of making high fat recipes into low fat ones. This one was ok but not great using low fat cheese. For some reason the cheese burned on the bottom. I baked it in a glass dish. If I had used full fat cheese I'm sure it would've been fabulous. I save this recipe for special occasions and use the right cheese.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2000
This just tasted like regular old beef stew to me. Nothing unusual or great about it. My fiance said there was too much meat and not enough vegetables. I'll keep searching for another recipes. I think this would've benefited from a 1/2 c. red wine.

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2001
I made this yesterday at a grocery store food demo and it was a success. Fresh tomatoes are not in season so I used canned no-salt diced tomatoes; omitted the parsley and used Italian seasoning instead of fresh basil; used dried thyme instead of fresh. Everyone enjoyed it so I'll definitely make this again!

Doubletree Hotel's Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2001
Try this recipe instead. It's MUCH better and closer to the original. After making these cookies for the first time I had 2 requests for the recipe. 1/2 cup rolled oats 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 2 eggs 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. 3. Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. 4. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well-incorporated. 5. Spoon rounded 1/4-cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. You don't need to press the dough flat. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep soft. For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies. Makes 20 cookies.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
This was very good. Because of the mixed reviews I added the marinade from 1 jar of artichokes (I only used 1 jar) to add more flavor. Also used canned tomatoes since fresh are not in season. If you don't like tangy sauces then you won't like this one. Next time I'll add a bit of tomato paste to thicken the sauce. My husband and I really enjoyed this. I will make this again!

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2002
Great dinner but made modifications according to our preferences and other's suggestions. I used low sodium-low fat soups; scratched cream of wheat and used 1/2 c. Italian bread crums; added 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to meatballs; 1 T Worcestershire to sauce and 1/2 can evap. milk. Served with mashed potatoes. There wasn't a ton of sauce though. Other than that we loved it. My husband stuffed himself and said these meatballs compete with this Mother's! I'll definitely make this again.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2001
I really enjoyed these brownies. I was a little leary because of the frosting. I think my husband likes them but every time he eats one he complains that they are "too fudgey." As if there could be such a thing! A tip--wait until these are completely cooled before slicing. I didn't and I have some funky looking bronwies.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2000
I hated this lasagne. It was VERY salty and I saw no benefit to cooking it in the slow cooker. No time was saved. It's faster to cook lasagne in the oven and the taste was lacking. I'll stick with my tried and true lasagne recipe from Bon Appetit!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2000
I can't believe how good this was! I omitted the oil and sauteed the onions and breasts in water and I used fresh rosemary and fresh basil. I served the chicken with risotto and poured the sauce onto the risotto. The chicken was excellent and I'll definitely serve it again.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2000
This was a very good and easy recipe. I had been making something similar but cooking the chicken in a covered skillet. The oven-method is much cleaner! I used Italian bread crumbs and sprinkled fresh parmesan on the top of the breasts. In the future I'll add the parmesan at the end as the cheese got a little crunchy.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2001
This was ok but not great. I used boneless, skinless breasts and baked for 30 min. basting and turning every 10 min. My husband liked it. I thought it was too salty even though I used low-sodium soy sauce.

Mid-Summer Italian Bread Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2002
This salad was wonderful! Very fresh tasting and flavorful. I chopped all ingredients in food processor except for tomatoes and bread. Did not measure salad ingredients (only dressing). Ended up with a lot of salad so I doubled dressing. My picky husband enjoyed this! The next day I used the salad (minus bread) as a sauce. I sauteed boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces; added salad and heated through and served over pasta. Very tasty. Will definitely make this again!

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2002
This bread is pretty good. Pretty mild in flavor though so next time I think I'll add cinnamon and/or vanilla. To save on fat and calories I cut sugar to 3/4 c.; used 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour + 2 c. all-purpose flour; used 2T applesauce + 1T vege. oil; used 2 c. blueberries and omitted nuts. Baked in a 9x5 pan and it took forever to bake--about 1 1/2 hours.
