Easy Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
Wow! I've never had a Southeastern Massachusetts cheesesteak before but boy it sure is good. I'm used to Philly style (Pat's or Geno's)and this is so "easy" and so delicious. My husband is a fan of cheesesteaks so I thought I'd give this a try and am glad I did. I bought "chip steak" which is basically sirloin cut paper thin. It cooks in no time at all! I cut my onions and peppers lengthwise and lighty toasted my steak rolls under the broiler before piling on the ooey, gooey meat and cheese mixture. Nice recipe that's perfect for a quick weeknight meal. Goes great with kettle cooked chips and an ice cold beer!

True Cheeseburger Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
What do you make when you're short on time and need to make dinner in a hurry? This would be it! It's basically a hybrid of two all time favorites pizza and cheeseburgers- what could be easier or better, right? I added a little garlic to the ground beef and sauteed the onion along with it. I used all reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (about a cup and a half) and left out the mozzarella altogether. I definitely added the optional shredded lettuce and chopped tomato along with the dill pickle slices. And, while I have to admit that while I love pizza and I love cheeseburgers I think I'll stick to them separately. (Even though my husband loved it) This a really good recipe for a quick meal!

Sausage and Pepper Sunrise Burrito

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Breakfast burritos are awesome and pretty much contain every food group! They can be made ahead of time and are perfect for "on the go". I swear you could put anything inside a warm tortilla and it's gonna taste good... You can add pretty much anything you want or have on hand because once you combine scrambled eggs, veggies, breakfast meat and cheese in a warm tortilla you're in breakfast heaven! All you need is a side of salsa, sour cream, a little tabaso or cholula and you're all set. Next time I think I'll opt for a lower fat version and use a combination of eggs and egg beaters, boca breakfast sausage links, and reduced fat cheddar. Definitely hearty so make sure you're hungry!

Roasted Parmesan Rosemary Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Excellent side dish! It's so simple, yet makes a great presentation. I used red skinned potatoes and garlic infused olive oil seasoning it with a bit of kosher salt and black pepper along with the other ingredients. I tossed them once during cooking. It took about 45-50 minutes. They came out crispy and delicious - a perfect accompaniment to any meal!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Easy, quick and not to mention delicious! I used a garlic infused olive oil and just a splash of balsamic vinegar vs. 1/4 cup. I roasted this at 400 for about ten minutes and it was perfectly done. This is a perfect accompaniment to any meal!

Healthier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
This definitely is a "lighter" version of a wonderful classic recipe! I opted to put the seasonings and flour in a bag to coat the chicken. After frying it in some Land O Lakes light buter, I removed the chicken from the pan while making the sauce. I doubled the amount of mushrooms and sauteed them with a bit of minced garlic. I used all Marsala wine for the sauce along with the chicken broth and added a little browning sauce along with a bit of cornstarch to thicken it. It turned out great! Perfect served with roasted potatoes and asparagus!

Pretzel Reuben Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
So easy and yet so good - the classics never die! This was perfect to throw together for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I used a store bought coleslaw and didn't bother combining it with the dressing but rather drizzled a little dressing over top before pressing the sandwiches back together and served it with additional dressing on the side if needed. This was delicious served with kettle cooked chips and a dill pickle on the side!

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Easy to throw together for a "fix it and forget it" type of recipe. I used sirloin that I partially froze so it was easier to cut it into thin strips. I fried the beef in a little sesame oil vs. olive. I opted to use a low sodium soy sauce, no water and cut back on the brown sugar. To give it a little "kick" I added a tsp. of chili garlic sauce. I cooked it on high for two hours and an additional 2 hours on low. I sliced a vialia onion and green onion (used a bunchlength wise vs. chopping and added them the last two hours of cooking so they didn't end up mushy. I topped it with toasted sesame seeds and finely chopped green onion. Perfect over a bed of rice!

Easy Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Definitely "easy" and delicious! These were perfect for breakfast with a cup of tea. Plus it was a great way to use up overly ripe bananas that I had on hand. Since I do like a little spice I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a generous tsp. of vanilla. I baked these in a Texas sized muffin tin and got 8 huge muffins. I topped them with turbinado sugar before popping them in the oven for a little added crunch. I baked them at 400 for 22 minutes. They smelled wonderful and tasted even better. This recipe is a great base for add-in's such as chocolate chips or nuts. Thanks "Easter Bunny" for a great recipe!

Honey Lime Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
So simple, yet so delicious! Easy to put together and tastes great. Not only is it a nice combination of colors and flavors but it's good for you too. Great for breakfast or a light snack. You can easily sub sliced almonds for the pine nuts. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Easy to throw together for a "fix it and forget it" type of recipe. I partially froze the sirloin so it was easier to cut it into thin strips. I didn't use the garlic powder, but rather added minced garlic to the sauce and fried the beef in olive oil vs. vegetable. I also used a concentrated Swanson flavor packet since I didn't have beef bouillion on hand. I opted to use a low sodium soy sauce along with a few splashed of low sodium Worchestershire sauce and left the salt out altogether. To give it a little "kick" I added a tsp. of chili garlic sauce. I cooked it on high for two hours and an additional 4 hours on low. I sliced the veggies (onion, green, and red pepper) length wise vs. chopping and added them the last two hours of cooking so they didn't end up mushy. Perfect served over rice!

Light Delight Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Overall, very tasty! And it's definitley a lighter version of a classic margarita so you don't have to feel too guilty about it. Since I couldn't find sugar free simple syrup I opted to use "Simple Syrup with Truvia(R) Natural Sweetner" from this site. Perfect over crushed ice!

Kickin' Turkey Club Wrap

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Perfect for a quick and easy lunch! I opted to use reduced fat cream cheese and mixed in a little hot sauce for that "kick". And I added some chopped tomato and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. I basically eye-balled the ingredients and it was delicious! Kinda like a kicked up version of a classic club sandwich wrap - perfect with a tall glass of iced tea!

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Great recipe! I love the combination of pork and apples. I did cut back on the bread crumbs and used apple juice to moisten basically eye-balling the ingredients to create the stuffing. I sprayed a baking dish with Pam so nothing would stick. And, since there's nothing worse than dry pork I baked it at 350 covered for 20 minutes and uncovered for another 20 minutes.

Lynchburg Lemonade Cocktail

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Wow this is crisp and refreshing - a perfect drink for those hot summer nights! It's like lemonade with a bit of a kick. This recipe is a spot on so if you're a fan of Jack Daniel's give this a try. You won't be disappointed. I would definitely shake vs. stir. Just garnish with a slice of lemon and add a straw. But, be careful because these go down easy...

Patriotic Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I've made this for serveral get togethers and it was a big hit. The dressing is fabulous - even the kids ate it despite the blue cheese. I doubled the dressing and used dijon instead of honey mustard. Also, 2 & 1/2 cups of uncooked pasta is basically one box. So, be sure to double the dressing. We don't care for cauliflower, so I just did 1 cup of chopped red pepper and 2 cups of cherry tomatoes. I let this sit overnight to let the flavors blend together. Overall, it's very good and worth the effort especially when there's nothing left in the bowl - you know your guests enjoyed it!
