Sandy's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Wow! So easy and yet so good! This definitely is a favorite at every BBQ meal. Other than adding a bit of molasses and cuttinb back a little on the brown sugar I wouldn't change a thing. This is a great way to take a regular 'ol can of baked beans and turn them into something special without a lot of effort!

Tortilla Chorizo Scramble

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Delicious - perfect to split with my husband! Clean-up was a breeze with this one pan breakfast. I add just a little milk to the eggs to get them nice and fluffy and added a little garlic and onion powders for additional flavor. I used a light Mexican blend cheese and topped it with a little homemade salsa and a dollup of reduced fat sour cream - YUM! Thanks for another great recipe Chef John!

Healthier Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Wow - this this healthier version even got my husband's approval! I cut this recipe in half and used two eggs. This was also a great way to use up some very ripe bananas. It came out moist, sweet and delicious - you really don't know it's low in fat. I sprayed a 9x5 baking pan with Pam for baking and then did the cinnamon-sugar dusting. I baked at 350 for a little over an hour - YUM!

Healthier Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Simply delicious! And to think this is a healthier version of an all time favorite makes it even better. This is very easy to throw together and perfect for a hearty weeknight meal. So if your're in the mood for Italian but think you don't have the time - think again. I added some fresh minced garlic to the ground turkey and onion. And, to the sauce I added a little red wine and some Italian seasoning to give a bit of a flavor boost. The sour cream was a nice change from the usual ricotta cheese as well as the carrot. I just eyeballed everything when layering. I covered it and baked it a little longer than 30 minutes leaving it uncovered for the last 10 minutes. Great with a fresh garden salad and warm bread!

Crunchy Curry Tuna Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Easy and delicious! This definitely is a nice twist on regular 'ol tuna salad. I left out the peanuts and replaced that with walnuts. I also added in a little optional green onion. I mixed the mayo and seasoning in a separate bowl before folding it into the tuna and other ingredients. For the dressing I used 2 Tbsp. of Hellman's light mayo cut with 2 Tbsp. of reduced fat sour cream for added creaminess and reduced the curry to 1 tsp. which was plenty. It chilled for a half an hour and it came out really good. Overall, a great combination of flavors! Especially good on whole grain bread!

Barbequed Peaches

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Grilled peaches make for a wonderful side dish or dessert! It's so simple and so easy yet the results are delicious. This definitely needs a bbq sauce with a spicy kick to compliment the peaches for a nice combination of sweet and heat!

Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Wonderful side dish that takes so little time to prepare! Who knew a little pint of cherry tomatoes could taste so good! I opted for olive oil vs. butter and used a bit of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to season. I love the basil on these. Definitely serve hot off the stove as these cool down quickly. You could add a little shaved Parmesan or feta cheese to this to take it over the top - great with grilled steak!

Garlic Steak with Garlic

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
If you love garlic, then you'll absolutely adore this recipe! I marinated the steaks overnight and while there's nothing quite like a grilled steak the combination of the balsamic vinegar along with the oil-roasted garlic put this classic over the top! This definitely did put a smile on my face as well as my husband's. Thanks for yet another fabulous recipe Chef John!!!

Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Delicious - there's nothing like oven roasted potatoes to compliment a grilled steak dinner! Who knew something could taste so good using only 1 Tbsp. of olive oil... The mix of fresh herbs was fabulous and the addition of the red pepper flakes gave it a nice "kick". This is a wonderful side dish!

Easy Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
This definitely is "easy" and a very basic recipe for classic egg salad. I do like the idea of using fat free plain yogurt, but make sure it's Greek or you'll end up with that horrible "fat free dairy product" aftertaste. I did take a little liberty with this and added a splash of yellow mustard and since there's something to be said for mayo in an egg salad I opted to add a couple of Tbsp. of Hellman's light mayo. If you want a little crunch you could also add in a little chopped celery or green onion. I mix the "dressing" separately and mix it with the eggs so the flavors blend better. I also opted to sprinkle the paprika over top vs. in the salad to avoid any discoloration. Overall, very tasty on toasted whole grain bread.

Healthier Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Boy does this bring back memories... This is a great updated healthier version of a childhood favorite and using whole wheat pizza dough is a great option. Not only is it fun to make, but fun to eat! I always use a bundt pan sprayed with Pam for baking so everything comes out with ease. I add the optional nuts and raisins along with 1 tsp. of vanilla to the butter and brown sugar mixture. When it's done, just invert the whole thing onto a plate and get out a ton of napkins!

Overnight Coconut Pecan Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Oh Yum! This is a great no-cook method that's so easy and delicious plus the "night before" prep makes this perfect for busy mornings when you want something healthy but don't have time! This not only tastes good, but is good for you too. I had regular coconut on hand and used 1% milk to lighten it up a bit. This is also great to use your favorite add-in's like a little nutmeg, raisins, dried cranberries or cherries. Thanks for a great recipe Linda (LMT)!

Sweet Iced Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Iced tea is definitely cool and refreshing - especially on a hot summer day! This was a nice half tea/half lemonade drink. And, it's definitely sweet so I did cut the amount of Splenda in half. Even with that it was a bit sweet for my taste, but my husband didn't seem to mind..

Baked Beans III

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Wow! So easy and yet so good - ya gotta love it when a few simple ingredients come together for something so tasty! This definitely is a favorite at every BBQ meal and this recipe has a wonderful flavor probably due in part to bacon (which makes just about anything taste better)! Other than adding a bit of molasses (something my Grandma Helen taught me) I wouldn't change a thing. This is a great way to take a regular 'ol can of baked beans and turn them into something special without a lot of effort!

Nana's Southern Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Well Krissy, for "just an old family recipe" this sure is delicious and it does remind me of KFC's version! To cut back on the amount of chopping I did as others as well as the submitter suggested and bought a bag of coleslaw mix. I also opted to lighten this up a bit by using Hellman's light mayo, reduced fat buttermilk, and 1% milk. I poured everything into a large tupperware container and refrigerated for a few hours - definitely the longer the better! Great side dish for bbq ribs!

Cornbread I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
This definitely is an "old-fashioned" version of cornbread, so don't expect it to be cake-like in texture or to rise as other recipes. I sprayed the bottom of my pan with Pam for baking and I added the melted butter to the mixture along with a Tbsp. of white sugar. Watch your baking time as it's done when it's a nice golden brown. Simple and delicious - perfect topped with butter or honey!

Baked BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Finger lickin' good! The key to "fall-off the bones" tender ribs is in the cooking method - low and slow is the way to go and this method is perfect for anytime you want ribs or if it happens to be raining and you can't grill. And, as Chef John states this works with any dry rub and bbq sauce. So, you can use your favorite combination or get creative -either way you're in for a treat! I used the rub in the recipe, but played with it a bit to use what I had on hand. I cut the recipe in half because we had a small rack of baby back ribs and since I didn't have dried chipolte pepper I subbed garlic powder instead. For the bbq sauce I opted for KC Masterpiece. We finished these on the grill over low heat basting just as the recipe states for the last 20 minutes. This was so simple and so delicious - perfect with a side of coleslaw and cornbread!

Pesto-Chicken Club Wrap

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
A creamy, delicious twist on a club sandwich - very tasty without a lot of effort! Plus, this was a great way to use up some leftover grilled chicken. I opted to use the reduced fat Italian Herb and Cheese version of the PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme and added a little shredded Parmesan and Romano cheeses. This was quick and easy to put together for a light meal, not to mention perfect for nights when it's too hot to cook!

Sweet Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
Wow! This is definitely very refreshing and not to mention a wonderful combination of colors and flavors. No matter what assortment of fresh fruit you use it's bound to be good so use your favorites and use the recipe as a guide. I added chopped peaches to mine and used fresh strawberries. Baking the chips keeps this a little healthier and lower in fat. So, for the cinnamon chips I used reduced fat tortillas and cut them with a pizza cutter which made things a lot easier. I sprayed them with butter flavored Pam and sprinkled them with the cinnamon sugar. I baked them at 350 for 8 minutes flipped them and baked them for another 7 minutes. They were crispy and delicious - next time I would double the amount because they went fast. This got a lot of compliments not only for taste, but for creativity. I'll definitely make this again - great recipe!

Green Garlic and Ham Scrambled Eggs with Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Very good and a nice twist on regular 'ol scrambled eggs! I love ham and cheese with scrambled eggs and if you like garlic, then you'll like this recipe. I cut the recipe in half just to give it a try and it was very filling. Scrambling eggs with a bit of milk gets them nice and fluffy. Since I didn't have green galic I just used a bit of minced garlic. I also cut back just a bit on the salt and pepper using it only to taste. This was delicious with whole grain toast and OJ but would also be great tucked into some flour tortillas for a breakfast wrap!
