Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
YUM! These are a favorite Friday-night movie dinner for us. We use the egg roll wrappers, and I usually double or triple the filling to make extra for the freezer. I always bake them, and they are always delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Five stars for easy, and also because my hubby LOVES this dish! It is a four-star dish to me, but quick, easy, and my family could eat it once a week and be happy. I always add lots of veggies (I know -- this makes it more like chicken pot pie but we like it!), and plan on using homemade biscuit dough next time. (I've been too afraid to try it so far)... I make most of the suggested alterations by other reviewers and this always turns out great!

Lime Chicken Picante

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I gave this four stars, because it didn't taste bad, there was just nothing "wow!" about it. We have lots of chicken recipes that we like better, so we probably won't make this one again, sorry.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This was really good for a change of pace, but hubby still prefers real pizza to this.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
These were ok... We love butternut squash so we really expected to like them a lot more, but we prefer the squash the way we usually cook it -- roasted with other veggies.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
These were really good! This was my first time experimenting with ground turkey instead of beef. I scaled down to 1 lb. of turkey and still got 5 nice size burgers out of this. They didn't shrink up like the beef ones do. I only had dried parsley, and I just added one whole egg instead of egg whites. I also tossed in chopped red peppers and a little bit of leftover reduced fat feta cheese, which was delicious in these -- melted down beautifully and no need to add any extra cheese to your burger! We grilled these on the George Foreman and it worked great!

Eggplant Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
These were delicious! I made homemade Vienna rolls (Joy of Cooking -- these are the best!) and used reduced fat feta and couldn't tell the difference at all. I didn't want to bother mixing the mayo and garlic in case I got too much mayo so I just spread a little minced garlic right on the sandwich. Unfortunately a recent bout of hail all but destroyed my basil, so we skipped it. I typically try to keep things healthy -- you know, replace oil with applesauce, white flour with home-ground whole wheat, etc. etc., but I am still a southern girl so I have an admission to make: I fried my eggplant. (After dipping in egg and then in flour). This was ONE GOOD SANDWICH! Sadly, it was only after the fact that I remembered that I actually have baked eggplant as an alternative to frying (Eggplant Parmesan) and it was still delicious, so next time I will bake this and see how it is.

Chicken Jambalaya I

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
YUM YUM YUM! This is a staple at our house! We skip the celery, because we never have it on hand, and also the thyme for the same reason. Although this last time I actually DID have thyme, and we decided we like it better without. I sometimes add extra veggies (peas or cauliflower) to replace the celery. It is good with or without! Otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly and this is one yummy dinner!

Pineapple Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This is one of my husband's all-time favorites now! I add chicken, green chili peppers or jalapeños, and extra sour cream in the filling. I make my grandmother's homemade enchilada sauce (homemade makes ALL the difference here, to me! SOOOO much better than the canned stuff!) and add the pineapple juice to it and simmer it down, like another reviewer suggested. Both my husband's mom and my dad who were in town said "they taste great! But I can't taste the pineapple..." I don't get that, because we taste the pineapple just fine! :) Thanks for a great and different recipe!!

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was really good! Not our favorite meal, but a very nice change. I think I liked it more than my husband, but he ate two helpings... :) I wish I'd had some yogurt to serve it with -- I would definitely try that next time!

Home Made Farmer's Cheese

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was my first time making cheese and it turned out beautifully! I agree with one other user that the plain cheese was rather bland on its own, even with the pinch of salt. I thought it would have made a lovely herbed cheese spread if I'd gone that route. As it is, I ended up making a couple lasagnas with it, and oh man! It was DELICIOUS! I typically use cottage cheese, not ricotta, in my lasagnas, but this by far topped them both! My husband couldn't get over how creamy and rich this was! Thanks for a fun easy recipe!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
We love these muffins! I usually throw whatever extra fruits I have on hand in the blender -- bananas, a couple of apples, carrots, zucchini, etc., and puree till smooth, since we aren't big on "shreds" of stuff in our muffins. I up the spices and dry ingredients till my batter is "muffin-y texture." I sub some whole wheat flour, and do about 1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil to cut down on the fat, but still keep them moist and tasty! This makes TONS of muffins for me -- I put some in the freezer and the rest in the fridge for hubby to grab for a quick breakfast on his way to work. Thanks a bunch! These are versatile and easy to make to taste!

Honey-Glazed Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was so yummy! I had my doubts, because at first it didn't seem like there was enough glaze to cover all the dry mix. But as it cooked, the glaze really melted down and coated everything. I added a dash of cinnamon to the honey/butter but it wasn't enough to taste. Next time I'll add more! Thanks this was surprisingly delicious!

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I'm giving this four stars because my husband loved it -- for me, it was just so-so. I like my own peanut chicken recipe better, however we didn't do this on a grill because we don't have one, and I think the recipe could be delicious grilled! Like everyone else, I wanted more sauce to serve it over rice, so I ended up adding a lot of water to the pan to try and make some sauce. Next time, I will try grilling the chicken, andtweak the sauce recipe to be more similar to my own (which uses coconut milk). To me the lime-y flavor was a little strong, and I love lemon/lime! Also adding just a touch of brown sugar is a must for this Thai-type recipe! I also added just about a tsp. of red curry paste (go easy on that if you don't like hot!). I think I might add just a Tblsp of fish sauce next time to add a little flavor.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Horribly unhealthy for you but SO delicious! I made these for my cousin's birthday and there were almost NONE left! I found Andes chips (in the baking aisle at Walmart), so instead of melting 2 c. chocolate chips, I melted 1 c. regular chocolate chips and 1 c. of the Andes chips. I added the rest of the bag (plus some of a second bag) into the dough and skipped the topping altogether. People were comparing these to Girl Scout Thin Mints "but softer and better!"

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Yummy! I cut the sugar down to a little over a cup and only used 3 eggs, and it was plenty sweet for us! I also did 3/4 c. applesauce and only 1/4 c. oil. Used some whole wheat and some white flour to try and keep it a little healthier. I didn't have allspice so threw in some pumpkin pie spice instead -- the only thing I would change is to maybe increase the ginger next time as I couldn't taste much of the gingerbread, just the pumpkin. But my ginger is getting old so that might have a lot to do with it! I cooked this in a 9x13 for somewhere in between 50 min. and an hour (I forgot to set the timer but that's my best guess). It was moist and delicious!

Whole Wheat Maple Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This bread was just so-so for us. I read the other reviews that you could barely taste the maple, so I added a tsp. of maple extract in addition to the syrup, and the maple flavoring was still just ok at best. I think if I had not expected this to be a sweet bread, I would have liked it more, but for some reason the "Maple" in the name led me to imagine a banana bread-like sweet bread, not a plain, hint-of-maple loaf. I hate to add sugar where it's not called for, but I felt like this bread needed it. It was still ok, and we still ate it for breakfasts, but I probably won't make it again. I also only had plain ol' fake syrup (not the real stuff), and imitation maple flavoring, so that might have had something to do with it.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
These are so so good! I would say they are good as is, excellent with some changes. I added one can of Rotel, like some else suggested, used light cream cheese, and also added some shredded chicken from the recipe "Lime Chicken Soft Tacos" (also on this site) that I'd cooked in the slow cooker and shredded. To me the lime-y chicken absolutely MADE these burritos! The only other things I changed were to add cumin (a must!) and also throw in a handful of shredded cheddar since we love cheese. Awesome dinner! I plan on making some more to put in the freezer for nights I'm short on time.

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
We just used the batter portion of this recipe for our favorite Lemon Chicken recipe, and it was PERFECT! We've been on a quest to find the perfect batter, and this is it! I can't wait to try the whole recipe, since we love sesame chicken too! I didn't have low sodium soy sauce, just the regular stuff, and even cutting back it was still a bit on the salty side. The only thing I would change is to make the batter a little thicker next time so that more of it sticks to the chicken. Overall, wonderful recipe!!

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Very tasty! I made this to go on some focaccia bread I made for chicken sandwiches. I spread the bread with some pesto, topped it with some fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, and mozzarella (the only kind of cheese I had on hand, and put it in the broiler for a few minutes. We put the chicken on the bread right from the oven and this made for one GOOD n' toasty chicken sandwich! I will definitely return to this chicken recipe again and again for lots of different meals!
