Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
I gave it 4 stars because it was good as written. However, I think it would be better if the amount of peaches were doubled, the peaches were added to the pan FIRST (I did this when I tried the recipe), and 1 c of peach liquid is added to peaches. It was a little to cake-like for me.

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
Sort of bland. Maybe I didn't add enough salt. My mother-in-law liked them but for everyone else, I'll stick to my bacon, onion, red pepper version. Thanks for the recipe. It's always nice to try something new.

Fudgy Brownie Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Very good. I only made the brownie portion, not the whipped topping, though it looks good. I've tried a lot of low fat brownie recipes and this one ranks at the very top. The brownie was very moist, with a dark chocolate taste. I will probably reduce the cocoa powder slightly next time (personal preference). I used whole wheat pastry flour and added 1/2c semi sweet chocolate chips! We served with chocolate fat free ice cream. I will make this again.

Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
At last a recipe that doesn't call for cream of soup!! My whole family loved this. I sauted the meatballs in olive oil instead of butter. I cooked fetticini and placed it in the bottom of a casserole dish. Topped the cooked noodles with the cooked meatballs. Poured the cooking broth into my 4 cup "fat separator" and return the fat-free broth to the saute pan. The flavor for the sauce is on the bottom of the pan!! Added fat-free evaporated milk (doubled the broth, milk, flour, and water). Cooked until slightly thick. I strained the sauce to remove darkened bits of meat and onions, and pured over meatballs and noodles. Then my husband called to say that he had to substitute for someone at a business dinner, so I put the whole thing in the fridge for the next night. The noodles were infused with the extra sauce and all flavors were well blended. Wonderful!! I will always make this one day ahead. It heated wonderfully in the microwave on a defrost setting as I did not want the edges to cook before the center was warm. A very healthy creamy sauce! Thanks for a new "keeper" at our house! Note: I ignored the second mention of 1 cup of evaporated milk. Like another reviewer, I think it is a misprint as the directions did not give mention to it.

Banana Chip Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I'm a "reduced fat fanatic" and these were the best I've made. I altered the recipe slightly by using dark brown sugar instead of white and lowered the amount from 3/4 c to 1/3 c. I also added 1 t of vanilla and 1/3 c of walnuts. Instead of white flour, I used whole wheat pastry flour and they were great. The whole family loves these. Thanks for the recipe!

Buffalo Cheesy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
The lasagna was OK, but did not taste like buffalo chicken at all. It tasted like chicken lasagna with some heat...I used Emil's hot sauce and a lot of it, but was still disappointed. I will not try it again.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This is the best recipe that even comes close to the expensive store bought bars. I used 3 cups of Old Fashioned oats which gave it a beefer texture (I like). I also replaced the flour with whole wheat pastry flour. As for the oil, I've made it both ways, with and used applesauce as a substitute....I prefer the applesauce, but increased it to 1 cup. As suggested by other reviewers, I lowered the brown sugar to 1/2 c. I also replace the honey with Splenda. I used cranberries and walnuts instead of raisins, plus increased cinn. to 1t and added 1/4 t allspice as others suggested. To make them heart-healthy, I lowered the wheat germ to 1/4 c and added 1/4 c ground flax seed. MY husband and I love these...my 3 and 5 year old prefer dried blueberries in theirs. I've probably made these a dozen times, tweeking things each time.

Cuban Black Beans II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Served with BBQ chicken and basmanti rice. I used 3 cans of black beans and omitted all the water. However I did dilute the paste with 1 c or so of water to get a consistency that I liked. Next time I will use less tomato paste. Also added 1 1/2 t cumin and added 1/2 t more cidar vinegar, plus I doubled the sugar. Omitted the pimentos and cut the salt to 1t. Absolutely wonderful with the rice.

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
For convenience, used 1 can petit diced tomatoes, drained, instead of cherry tomatoes. Added 1 can of yelloe corn for color. Followed suggestion of other reviewers and added the juice of one lime. Got a lot of compliments on this dish. Definitely a keeper.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
We loved this! I have a family history of elevated chlorestrol so this recipe made with oil was perfect. I made some subsitutions. As other raters suggested, I soaked the cornmeal in milk for 15 minutes. I use a 50/50 mix of white flour and whole wheat. Also used 50/50 mix of Splenda and brown sugar. I added 3/4 cup of my mom's home grown sweet corn. I substituted 1 whole egg with 2 egg whites. I had enough batter to fill 12 mini muffin cups and put the remaining in a loaf pan...perfect. Because of the addition of the sweet corn I found that I had to bake the loaf pan an extra 10 minutes. Great recipe and I will make this again and again.
