Harvest Salad from Oikos®

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
Delicious! This is a colorful salad with a great combination of flavors and textures. Plus it's a great way to use up some leftover Thanksgiving turkey! For the dressing I added a little buttermilk to thin it out. I also opted to toasted walnuts vs. pecans as that's what I had on hand. I let the dressing set in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors blend together. Perfect with warm rolls and a glass of wine!

Banana Hazelnut Breakfast Panini

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
A wonderful combination of sweet and salty! These are definitely a rich, savory treat that I wouldn't do all the time but once in a while you just have to splurge. Although it seems like a odd pairing of ingredients, this really does come together very nicely. Next time I might try apples vs. bananas - this definitely is a case of do't knock it 'til ya try it!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Great side dish! This was so simple to put together, yet tasted so good it even got my husband's approval and his idea of veggies is either corn or peas... There's something about the roasting process that makes this simple side dish absolutely wonderful. I opted to use roasted garlic infused olive oil and roasted the brussels sprouts at 425 for approximately 20 minutes. This is a definite keeper!

Low-Fat Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Delicious with none of the guilt! There's nothing like pumpkin pie after a Thanksgiving meal and this low-fat version definitely delivers on taste so much so that you'd never suspect it was a lighter version! (it even fooled my husband - LOL) I took the advice of others and lightened it up even more by using fat free evaporated milk and 2/3 cup of Splenda. I also opted to use 1 & 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice vs. three spices. Since I didn't have any egg substitute, I used 2 eggs. I did have to bake this longer than 30 minutes at 350, more like 45 minutes. It was perfect topped with light whipped cream!

Pear Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Wow - now this is a vinaigrette! And just as the submitter states - it's a light and lovely salad dressing that lends itself to a simple and elegant salad. This was so easy to put together and was perfect accompnaiment to a Thanksgiving meal. And I must say I'll definitely be making this for other special occasions. It's a great combination of flavors and everyone enjoyed it. I did opt to used canned pears along with a little bit of the juice vs. a fresh pear. I also used a very nice Chardonnay for the white wine and after it was done blending I did add just a touch of honey for sweetness. This definitely gets better over time and thickens up so be sure to make it the night before. This was fabulous over a mix of butter lettuce, dried cranberries, chopped apples and pears, toasted walnuts, and topped with goat cheese crumbles. Great recipe!

Cape Cod Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Fabulous! This is a wonderful salad and a great way to use up some leftover Thanksgiving turkey! I LOVE dried cranberries so this salad was right up my alley. I also added some chopped apples to give it a little more sweetness. For the dressing I used Hellman's light mayo and cut it with a bit of reduced fat sour cream. I also opted to use a little curry powder vs. rosemary and parsley. I'm a huge fan of rosemary, but for this salad I felt the curry powder just paired better. I let this set in the fridge for a few hours and after sneaking a few bites - WOW, what a wonderful combination of flavors! This was so good on whole grain bread - thanks for a great recipe.

Cheesy Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Easy and delicious! How can you go wrong with "pizza" for breakfast? I added sauteed red and green peppers along with some onion in a little garlic to get in some veggies. I subbed light shredded Cheddar cheese as I didn't have any Mozzarella on hand and since my husband is a big fan of bacon I added some cooked and crumbled. This is a great base for add-in's like veggies, ham, sausage, or bacon - no matter what it's gonna be delicious. Overall, very tasty and a great way to start the day. Perfect with a side of fresh fruit and OJ! Thanks for a great recipe wramirez1209!

al fresco Apple Maple Chicken Sausage Sliders

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Wonderful recipe with a nice combination of flavors! The sweet apple sausage paired with sharp cheddar was definitely an indicator that this was going to be tasty so I had to give this a try and boy am I glad I did! This was a nice change to our regular breakfast sandwich routine and so good you'd never know that the sausage was so low in fat. I used reduced fat shard cheddar along with whole grain bagel thins vs. mini bagels. And since I didn't have apple jelly I served this with a side of apple butter. Perfect served with fresh fruit and OJ!

Zesty Tomato Soup for One

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
So simple and so good that it leaves you asking yourself "Why didn't I think of that"? I turned this into tomato soup for two and kept the amount of onion at 1/4 vidalia onion. I opted to use low sodium V8 and added some garlic, fresh basil, and a splash of white wine vinegar. A great base for add-in's to suite your tastes!

Ranch Chicken and Bacon Panini

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Very tasty without a lot of effort! Plus, this was a great way to use up some leftover grilled chicken. I opted to use reduced fat cheddar cheese and add some sliced tomato. This was quick and easy to put together for a light meal, not to mention perfect for nights when you don't have time to cook!

Breakfast Neapolitan Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Wow - this was fabulous! The review is for the Neopolitan piece of the recipe as I used "Wonderful Waffles" from this site which produced a tender, light and crispy waffle. I love the hazelnut spread combined with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. You could easily change this up and use sliced bananas. You could eat this for breakfast, but I chose to do this as a dessert with the addition of vanilla ice cream - YUM!

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Definitely a perfect recipe for "Wonderful Waffles"! These were light, fluffy, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside - what more could you as for on a Sunday morning. I've made waffles before just adding the egg whole vs. separating and whipping the egg whites until nice and fluffy. I must say it's worth the extra step of whipping the egg whites and folding them in - the result was a much fluffier waffle. I melted the butter and used 6 Tbsp. of white sugar vs. brown and added a generous splash of vanilla. These are delicious topped with butter, real maple syrup or fresh fruit and whipped cream! Thanks for a great recipe!

Chocolate Banana French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Delicious! This was a proved to be a nice spin on an old favorite. I love french toast and this was a very tasty new way to prepare it especially with a combination of chocolate and banana. I cut the recipe in half to give it a try and am glad I did. I used thick cut Texas toast and all I added was a cinnamon and vanilla extract to the egg mixture. When these were nice and crispy I dusted them with powdered sugar, a dollup of butter, sliced bananas and drizzled some real maple syrup over top - a really nice treat for breakfast with a glass of OJ!

Buffalo Chicken Panini

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
My husband and I LOVE chicken wings so I knew this had our names written all over it! Plus it was quick and easy to put together for dinner - not to mention a bit healthier than fried chicken wings! I used leftover grilled chicken and for the sauce I used Frank's Red Hot, butter, and seasonings from our homemade hot wing sauce. I served the sandwiches with "No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing" from this site. All I did was add a garden salad for a simple and filling meal.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Boy does this bring back memories... This definitely is an irresistable childhood favorite and a great way to use Grands Biscuits. 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!

Grandwich Breakfast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Wonderful little breakfast sandwich that's great for "on the go"! Not to mention it's much better than going to a drive-thu! I made these individually vs. all eight at once. Grands biscuits store nicely in the fridge so I made these sandwiches as needed. I microwaved a scrambled egg in a pudding cup sprayed with Pam for about 35 seconds for each sandwich. All that's left to do was top with my favorite cheese and breakfast meat and this was perfect for my husband to take to work. This was so easy to make and and done in no time at all!

Easy Lemon and Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Great recipe! This so easy to prepare and yet so good. The lemon and garlic paired together really make this broccoli side dish stand out. It's delicious all by itself and makes a great side dish. Before serving I topped it with a little lemon zest. YUM!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Well, the secret is out and this definitely is a great recipe for garlic mashed potatoes! I was a bit skeptical because there was no milk but I gave it a try and am glad I did. This was a nice departure from traditional mashed potatoes. I cut this back to 2 servings for a pound of red skin potatoes and used a combination of Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Thanks for sharing AUSTAD!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Great recipe! My husband loves breaded pork chops and this was perfect for dinner for two. It has a nice combination of flavors and is very simple to make. I followed the recipe exactly and baked them at 375 for 15 minutes vs. 425 to avoid dry pork. Overall, very tasty.

Sweet and Spicy Turkey Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Great sandwich that's a savory combination of sweet and spicy! I would have never thought to pair turkey, pepperjack cheese, and strawberry preserves but this defintiely works and is a nice departure from your "run of the mill" turkey sandwich. I used light pepperjack cheese and low sugar Smucker's strawberry spreserves. I'll definitely have to remember this one for leftover Thanksgiving turkey! Thanks Snowspiral!
