Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Used 8 oz low fat cream cheese, added 1/4 cup white wine and 1/4 cup skim milk. Also added asparagus spears to the mushrooms. Make sure to salt and pepper to taste. Is bland without seasoning. Doubled the garlic. Used whole wheat linguine. Restaurant caliber pasta dish!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I also added crumbled bleu cheese, sliced red onion, and cherry tomatoes. The homemade dressing and salad was a hit with my dinner party friends. They asked for seconds AND the recipe.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I also added a little more chili powder and used tomato paste instead of tomato sauce. Added a Tbsp of chopped fresh cilantro. Delicious with vegetarian enchiladas made with a cream cheese/TVP filling. Served with a tomato, avocado, and mango salsa.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This was delicious! I omitted the butter to make a healthier dish. Also used panko breadcrumbs and mixed with 2 tbsp parm cheese and some italian seasonings instead of italian breadcrumbs (most commercial breadcrumbs contain partially hydrogenated oils - not good). Served with risotto and roasted zucchini. Restaurant quality meal.

Figs and Toasted Almonds Brie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I also used packaged figs but they were still soft and I cut them into tiny pieces, simmered in dark brown sugar, a little more water, added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg and toasted lmond slivers. Is the hit of my party. Served with those little tiny toasts from Trader Joes. YUM!

Diane's German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
This cake was a big hit with everyone at work! It is very rich and moist. I was able to reduce the calories from 681 to 510 per slice with substitutions (egg beaters, unsweetened applesauce for oil, I can't believe its not butter "free" for butter and PAM instead of greasing the sheets) The recipe is excellent.
