Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This soup is delicious! Perfect for fall. I also roasted the squash beforehand, used 2% evaporated milk and low fat coconut milk and the richness is perfect. No need for sour cream! I'm not known for being the best cook but anyone can do this. Enjoy!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This recipe was GREAT! Not to sweet or too tart. I took another reviewers advice and did 3/4 cup OJ, 1/4 cup water and did 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and I highly recommend that too. Delicious and easy!

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
This soup was great! I roasted the peppers and onions (per another reviewer's suggestion), used two cans of diced tomatoes and just one can (about 2 cups) of vegetable broth. I also doubled the spices, garlic and finished by adding half and half at the end to desired taste. Garnished with croutons. YUM!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
This recipe was delicious! I made a few changes - firstly, this recipe does not need 3/4 cup butter. I used two tablespoons of butter and the olive oil from the pasta and sun dried tomatoes was more than enough. I also added some panko bread crumbs on top. Very tasty.

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
This was good, but I added half an onion, more garlic (no powder), red peppers and mushrooms, along with whole wheat penne. Light, healthy and tasty.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Delicious! Upon another reviewer's recommendation, I decreased pasley to 1 TB and added 1 tsp basi. The sauce tasted great. Then I added ground turkey. Still good but the extra meat required more seasoning. Very good though!

Chicken Fricassee

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This was a tasty dish. I halved the recipe, used chicken breast tenders (so it would cook faster) and low fat spicy turkey sausage. I also used chicken broth instead of water. The spice level was hot, but not too hot for us! I will say that the recipe was lacking something. If I cook next time, I may add peppers at the end for some crunch. All and all a good recipe for a first time Cajun cook. Thank you!

Spicy Chicken Thai Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This soup was great! I used two cans of light coconut milk and chicken breast and I don't think it compromised the flavor at all. The supermarket ran out of red curry paste so I used green. I did not get the level of spice that the recipe predicted (or that I wanted) so I added two jalapenos instead of one. Overall this soup was delicious. I served over rice noodles.

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Really tasty chili. I made a few small changes: I used three cans of Rotelo diced tomatoes and green chiles, one diced/seeded jalapeno, two cloves garlic and a tablespoon of brown sugar. I garnished with cheddar and low fat sour cream. A unique take on chili that I will definitely use again. Thank you for the great recipe!

Devouring Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Really good cookies! After the first batch, I took the suggestion of another reviewer and turned the temp to 350, baking for 12-13 mins and they were better. The cookies were delicious! But want to make them thicker. Ideas on how to do that are appreciated. Thanks for the recipe!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
This was SO good. My only alteration was subbing half and half for heavy cream to cut down on fat. If I could give this recipe six stars I would. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
This was delicious and easy. I took a tip from another reviewer and sauteed the chicken with half an onion and about 4 cloves of garlic. I added three peppers instead of two with a hefty dose of Adobo and it was just spicy enough. Served over rice with a salad and warm tortilla. Thank you for the recipe!

This was delicious and easy. I had to cook the shrimp separately because my husband doesn't eat them. I used Aidell's cajun sausage. Delicious, thank you for the recipe!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
These were good! The cake itself was amazing, moist and delicious. The frosting was good but I struggled with the consistency, as it was drippy and gooey, rather than light and fluffy, which I was hoping for. That may just be the reality with cream cheese frosting but maybe others have tips for how to improve this going forward. Thank you for the recipe!
