Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
A great summertime recipe or anytime at that. I use chicken thighs and about a tablespoon of red pepper flakes instead of the red bell pepper. I didn't think the red bell pepper did anything for it but the red pepper flakes give it a little zing.

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
These are awesome! Sometimes I add onion with the brussels sprouts. Either way is delicious.

Roasted Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
We started making this but I add dill to it. It adds a nice flavor otherwise I feel they are a little bland.

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I'm always trying to find a healthy pancake recipe and this is one of my favorites since I love blueberries. I made a few changes. I doubled the amount of blueberries, I used almond milk because that is my preference and I also used old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking since that is even healthier. I mixed the milk and oats together and stuck it in the microwave for 1 minute and it turned out great.

Super Summer Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Serving isn't right if you are using as a salsa. This does make much more than 6 servings. I followed other reviews and halved the sugar and still thought it was too sweet and also felt it was too much corn and not enough beans. I will make again and adjust accordingly.

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Yum! I had to bring a soda bread to a St Patrick's Day dinner last night and thought I would give this recipe a try. Traditional soda bread is a little on the sweet side and I was looking for something that would be good to eat with the irish stew that was being served. OMG! this was delicious and pretty simple. I will be making again. It does require more buttermilk and I followed other reviews and used green onion which I think really made it.

Elegant Oyster Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
We made this for Valentine's day dinner and it was delicious. To lighten it up, we used fat free evaporated milk instead of the heavy cream. It has a wonderful flavor. We will be making again.

Kaese Spaetzle

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
My husband fell in love with this dish when he was stationed in Germany. I made it for him when he got back and he said it was just like they made it in the mother land.

Pork Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I made these as an appetizer for a Japanese dinner party. They were a huge hit. I halved the recipe and it was still plenty for the 10 guests; not sure where they get 6 servings from if you make the full recipe.

Country Margaritas

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
Love this for the summer. I usually cut the vodka down to 1 cup and add another beer other wise it is a little strong and too lemony.

Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I've been making this for years but this calls for too much mayonnaise. You should only put in one heaping Tablespoon in otherwise it will be too much. And I highly recomend using fresh dill sprigs.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Great low carb cookie when using Ideal sugar. My husband make these when we want a sweet treat without all the calories. Make sure you add a little more butter because it comes out a little dry when baking with Ideal otherwise you would never have guessed it was low carb.

Banana Split Cake V

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This is one of everyone's favorites cakes I make for the guys at work. It's light, refreshing. and a great warm weather cake (but I will eat anytime). I do use a smaller tub of cool whip and then drizzle chocolate syrup on top with a couple of cherries.

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
We are the creator of this salad and we took the Napa cabbage recipe and made a meal out of it and made it healthier by using Ideal sugar and adding lean pork and brown rice.

Amaretto Cream Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Wonderful, it tastes and looks like you spent a lot of time making it but is fairly simple. The only change I would make is to reduce the amount of cream cheese and powdered sugar in the frosting by half. It was way too much for just frosting the sides and top.

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Excellent, I used lowfat ingredients and it turned out great. I followed the suggestions of baking in pan of water. Next time, I would like to try it with Ideal sugar to make it low carb as well

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Yum!!! The only thing I would change next time is to double the batch so we can have leftovers. I might try putting some salmon it as well to make it like a chowder. It was very thick and creamy. I did use V8 instead of tomato juice because that's what I had on hand and it turned out great!!
