Avocado Banana and Walnut Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Delicious! I opted to use half brown sugar and half white sugar and since most banana muffins have a little spice I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon along with a couple heaping teaspoons of vanilla. These came out very moist and tasted so good my husband had no idea there was avocado in it - until he noticed the light green color... What's great about these muffins are the avocado takes the place of butter or oil yet they still have all the moistness and flavor you'd expect. I topped these with a little turbinado sugar for some added crunch and popped them in the oven. They baked up beautifully in exactly 20 minutes. I never baked with avocado before but now I'm going to!

Burly Burger

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
Delicious! Sometimes the simplest recipes turn out to be some of the best. I subbed Johnsonville's Italian Ground Sausage for the beef patty which proved to be a wonderful choice. This "anytime" burger was great for breakfast served with a nice big glass of OJ!

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Delicious! The pork comes out moist, tender, and full of flavor - plus it was easy to make. I used pork tenderloin (on sale) and combined all the spices in a ziploc bag then tossed in the pork so it was evenly coated. After browning, I cooked it in the crock pot for 4 hours on high with a minimal amount of water. The last hour I tossed in the onion. The tomatillo salsa needed just a little more flavor so like others I added in some garlic, red onion, a pinch of salt and a little fresh lime juice. I served these over white corn tortillas that I warmed in the oven topped with salsa, avacado slices, sour cream and a splash of fresh lime. Great with a side of Spanish rice and a margarita on the rocks! Thanks for a great recipe Mazola!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
Great recipe - the rub was fabulous! I subbed tilapia for the salmon to give it a try and no matter how much I pleaded with my husband to at least try fish he wouldn't...(maybe next time)so I ended up using the rub on pork for him which actually turned out very good. Since I wasn't a fan of the grapefruit salsa after making it I ended up going with a mango salsa instead. Overall, it was a nice blend of "sweet and spicy".

Vanilla-Pear Breakfast Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
Wonderful combination of flavors to start your day! This was so easy and so good plus it was very filling. This is a great way to perk up regular morning oatmeal. Since I didn't have fresh raspberries on hand I topped it off with a dollup of fat free greek vanilla yogurt, additional toatsted almonds and dried cranberries. I really didn't need the brown sugar as it was sweet enough as is.

Reindeer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
Too Cute! I'm an admitted peanut butter addict so I had to find an excuse to try this so when I had my niece over I figured it would be a fun thing to do and she just loved it! It's an easy, quick, inexpensive, healthy and delicious snack that I felt good about giving her. Plus it was really fun to make! You can sub almond butter or nutella for peanut butter and chocolate chips for the eyes. I didn't have cherries on hand so I used dried cranberries. No matter how you create your "reindeer" you'll love this not only for its simplicity but for the smiles it brings. Thanks for a great recipe!

Coffee Cake in a Mug

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
This may not be pretty to look at, but it sure does taste good! I must admit I tried this out of a sweet tooth craving and being that this makes a cake for one in under 5 minutes I figured what do I have to lose? It's simple, easy and really hits the spot when you want something sweet without a lot of effort. Perfect with a cup of hot tea!

Sweet Banana Almond Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
This definitely is just as the submitter states "warm, sweet, and lusciously filling"! I love the combination of flavors and it's a great way to use up that last little banana - lol. I did opt to do a microwave version of this to cut back on time and to add a little protein I added a dollup of almond butter over top! Perfect with a glass of OJ!

Baked Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
It really doesn't get much easier than this... I used light Hidden Valley Ranch dressing and panko breadcrumbs that I seasoned with a little grated Parmesan cheese and dried parsley, The chicken was moist, tender, and flavorful. Great recipe if you're short on time or just love ranch dressing.

English Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
So simple and so delicious! I love it when a few ingredients you have in the kitchen come together to create something so good. I opted for a little kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Although you may feel tempted to add additional herbs or spices, this is really wonderful due to it's simplicity.

Broccoli with Buttery Crumbs

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Great way to takes plain 'ol broccoli to a whole new level! I used a steam in bag of broccoli and cut the amount of butter in half. Next time I might add a little grated Parmesan cheese or shredded cheddar, but honestly this was great as is and perfect for a last minute side dish!

Tomato Basil Egg Salad Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Simple and delicious! I never would have thought to add basil to egg salad, but it really works. I cut the recipe in half and opted for Hellman's light mayo and in addition to the tomato slices I added thin sliced English cucumber. This perfect with a side of fresh fruit for a filling and flavorful lunch. Thanks for a great recipe!

Some recipes bring back wonderful childhood memories and this is one of those recipes!

Amazing Whipped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
So simple, yet oh so good! These mashed potatoes are creamy, rich and delicious - comfort food at it's best! And, while you can lighten them up switching out low fat ingredients for full fat - I chose to stick with the full fat version. Just as the submitter states - "These potatoes are a perfect compliment to ANY meal".

Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Simple and delicious! Being that pork and sauerkraut is a New Year's Eve tradition I had to make this and boy was it good - not only for the ease of prep but for the taste. I didn't add the optional baby potatoes and used two bags of Boar's head sauerkraut. I also threw in a thin sliced Granny Smith apple and a little brown sugar (this takes away the tartness of the kraut). I made this before I went to bed New Year's Eve and it was done for New Year's day. Perfect with mashed potatoes and sweet peas!

Grilled Turkey and Swiss Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Fabulous sandwich! I love anything with Swiss so I had to give this a try. I opted for Hellman's light mayo and low fat Swiss. I added some thin sliced tomato and a couple of slices of bacon which proved to be wonderful additions. No matter what you add, you can't go wrong. Perfect with a side of fresh fruit!

Quick and Easy Pierogies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Oh, now this is comfort food at it's best! Rich, delicious, and very filling - not for those counting calories or for those of us like myself who made their New Year's resolution to get healthy LOL! I made this for my husband and this is pretty much the way my Mom used to make them for me as a kid. The only exception for me was I got my hands on homemade church pierogies thanks to my mother-in-law! And for those of you who've had a "church" pierogi you know what I'm talking about. Perfect topped with fresh chives vs. parsley and a side of sour cream - YUM!

Strawberry Spinach Salad With Feta and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Wonderful combination of flavors and textures! This salad was perfect for a light lunch - all I had to do was top it with some leftover grilled chicken. I used a fat free feta and tossed in some sliced almonds. For the raspberry vinaigrette, I used "Fresh Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette" from this site. Thanks for an easy, yet delicious recipe!

Fresh Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Great salad dressing and using fresh ingredients makes it all the better! I cut the recipe in half to give it a try and I'm glad I did. I opted to use a white balsamic which proved to be a good choice. I just put everything into my mini food processor, gave it a whirl and it was done in no time at all. I let it set in the fridge for about an hour to let the flavors blend together. This was a wonderful dressing for "Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta and Bacon" from this site.
