Aunt Carol's Spinach and Fish Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
A definite five with a couple changes. First (I typically make two generous servings, so I adjust amounts accordingly): I use 3 oz. fresh baby spinach leaves, wilted with 1/2 TB butter and a few tsp minced garlic, in place of the frozen spinach (I think other reviewers have also suggested this). I use Italian seasoned bread crumbs instead of plain. Finally, for the cheese, I use 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar, and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan. Overall, this definitely takes the dish in a more garlic-flavored direction, and yield a flavorful cod dish that even my husband (not usually a fan of any fish except salmon or tuna) loves! And it really doesn't add much to prep time.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I feel a little bad about making these, and here's why: I bring them to parties and people LOVE them. And I never tell anyone that they took about 15 minutes to make. I use a powdered lemonade mix (1 packet, for one personal size bottle of water) in place of the lemon essence and powdered sugar (I.e. I just toss it right in with the cake mix) and they come out just fantastic. If you forgot until the last minute that you agreed to bring dessert to a get-together, here's your solution.

Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
So I'm doing that thing where I review a recipe with some changes. Sorry, but I wanted to tailor it to my meal and our diet. I made the following changes: 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup total of equal parts natural applesauce and oil, and 1 cup skim milk (replacing, respectively, the flours, oil, and soy milk). I also added 1 finely chopped sweet onion. They were excellent- moist and flavorful, insanely fast and easy, and made great snacks for a few days. A definite make-again, and you could easily mix in some chopped dried fruit and cinnamon to turn this into a breakfast biscuit. SO happy to bring this into the mix!

Baked Tofu Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Delish! Made a couple of minor changes - I used honey instead of maple syrup since it's less expensive. Also, I used several generous sloshes of hot sauce, plus a couple sprinkles of hot sauce with chipotles (to replace the liquid smoke), about 2 tsp of garlic powder, and a few shakes of paprika and cayenne (we keep it spicy around here!). Marinated for about a half hour. Baked it for 20 minutes on 375, flipped the pieces, but then BROILED it for the second 20 minutes, in order to make it a little crispy on top. Yummy, and fiance raved about it. Will definitely be making again! Thanks, Vicky9999!

Tasty Breaded Seitan

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Awesome! Our first foray into seitan and we LOVED it! We made a couple of small changes. Nutritional yeast at our health food store was very expensive so used Italian bread crumbs, but still added the other spices. Followed other reviewers' suggestion to mix with mayo but added soy sauce to it for flavor. Finally, added cornstarch and black pepper to package broth for a sauce. Served over brown rice with a salad. Thanks for sharing!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
Very tasty! Something to consider is that there is no salt in this recipe other than what's contributed by the canned tomatoes, peanut butter, and chipotles. I used natural peanut butter (as in, one ingredient - peanuts) and low-sodium tomatoes, so added some salt at the end too. Also, it seemed slightly bitter (probably due to the lack of added sugar in the natural peanut butter), so I stirred in about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, which instantly solved the problem. Will definitely be making this one again!
