Grilled Bacon Apple Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
OMG! I love apples, bacon, and especially peanut butter but never would have thought of this combination in a grilled sandwich! This was oh so goey and good. It was a great blend of sweet and salty with just the right amount of spice from the cayenne. It definitely gives your taste buds a work out. I used thick sliced whole grain bread, but whatever bread you use this is bound to be delicious. This is definitely a case of don't knock it 'til ya try it!

Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Quick, easy, and delicious! Plus it's a great way to use up ripe fruit. The batter was a little dry, so I used a bit more milk and added a couple Tbsp. of veg. oil. This recipe is a great base for whatever add-in's you have on hand. For the fruit I used peaches and added some vanilla and cinnamon. I baked these in a Texas sized muffin tin and topped them off with a little turbinado sugar before popping them in the oven for a little extra sweetness and crunch. These baked up beautifully in about twenty minutes. Perfect with a cup of tea!

Creamy Dill Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Excellent! Plus you can modify this to make it healthier and lower in fat. I cut back on the mayo (used Hellman's light), opted for fat free plain greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and added 4 oz. of light cream cheese. I combined all the ingredients and let it set overnight - perfect with cucumbers, carrtos, red peppers, and celery. A really nice snack you don't have to feel guilty about!

Maple Basted Roast Turkey with Cranberry Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Nothing beats a roast turkey! And although it was a little on the sweeter side, overall it was very tasty. My husband wasn't a huge fan of the gravy, but it was a nice departure from traditional turkey gravy.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
Very simple, yet very tasty! I used four peppers vs. six (all depends on the size). I also opted to sub Butterball ground turkey vs. beef with great results. I added a little garlic to the meat while cooking and didn't add the celery because I didn't have any on hand. Once they came out of the oven I sprinkled the tops with grated Parmesan cheese. Perfect with a side of mashed potatoes!

Chicken Salad with Grapes and Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
Delicious! I opted to use Butterball Turkey breast vs. chicken with excellent results. I added a little chopped celery for a bit more crunch. I used Hellman's light mayo and an additional Tbsp. fat free greek yogurt to make it extra creamy plus a pinch of salt. I mixed the dressing ingredients separate and then folded it into the other ingredients. I let it chill for a couple of hours and it was perfect over a bed of lettuce for a light lunch!

Spinach, Tomato, and Feta Egg White Omelette

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
Wow - feta cheese and scrambled eggs together! This made for a light yet filling breakfast with a tasty combination of flavors. I did sautee the spinach along with a little onion and garlic then added the rest of the ingredients. I opted to use egg beaters which worked out nice and fat free feta cheese. Perfect with a side of whole grain toast and fresh fruit!

Cheesy Chicken and Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
So easy and yet so good! I seasoned three good sized chicken breasts with Goya's Adobo Seasoning and grilled them first. I took a bit of a short cut and used the microwave directions on the inside packet for the rice. I just added the chopped onion and green pepper to it and microwaved it according to the instructions. The last few minutes of cooking I threw in a can of diced tomatoes (drained). Once it was done, I sliced the chicken breast and added that along with some reduced fat cheddar cheese. Dinner was ready in no time! All I had to add was a garden salad.

Delicious Ham Omelette

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Omelettes are a great Sunday morning breakfast - however, I must agree that the amount of oil called for is a bit much. I have a non-stick pan so I opted for just a little butter to fry the onions and potatoes adding a little minced garlic and salt to the mix. I then added the ham and tomatoes and poured the egg mixture over top. I served it spinkled with light Cheddar cheese and sliced green onion along with whole grain toast and a glass of OJ!

Creamy Lemon Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Light and lemony with all the taste of creamy cheesecake and without all the fuss! This is a quick and easy dessert that tastes like you spent hours. I topped these with a sugared raspberry, lemon zest and a little whipped cream. I can't wait to try these again!

Sweet and Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
OMG! These were so easy and so delicious! I must admit, I did cut back on the chili-garlic sauce...I wasn't sure just how hot these would get. I threw everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate for about a half hour. I threaded the shrimp onto the skewers and grilled - it doesn't get much easier than this. These were a perfect little appetizer!

Easy Crunchy Berry Parfaits

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Simple and delicious! Plus it not only tastes good but it's good for you too! I love the crunch from the granola. These are perfect for breakfast or a really nice "guilt free" snack. I cut the recipe in half opted to use fat free greek vanilla yogurt and threw in a few blackberries as well. The honey drizzled over top is a nice addition. This is a great base for whatever add-in's you like and no matter what kind of fruit you have on hand it's bound to be tasty!

Tomato Basil Mozzarella Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Wonderful sandwich that's quick, easy and delicious! I didn't have pesto on hand so I brushed it with a little garlic infused olive oil. I did add some roasted red peppers, proscuitto and fresh spinach (after it was out of the oven). I served it with balsamic vinegar mixed with a little olive oil and red pepper flakes for dipping. Excellent without a ton of effort!

Steak on a Stick

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
OMG! The meat practically "melts in your mouth" it comes out so tender and juicy! This was so easy to throw together with excellent results. I would highly recommend a minimum of at least 8 hours and overnight for maximum effect. I used low sodium soy sauce to avoid this being overly salty, cut back on the water and added a little rice wine vinegar. I also added a little minced garlic vs. powder. I poured everything into a ziploc bag and let it go! I opted to grill these vs. broiling. What could be simpler? The results were nothing less than fabulous and as the submitter states these are excellent as an appetizer. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Non-fat Honey Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Wow! Fat free never tasted so good! In fact I tested it on my husband who vows to never eat anything fat free (lucky him) and he didn't notice the difference - definite winner! This is one creamy dressing that you don't have to feel guilty about. Plus it takes so few ingredients that come together for something so tasty. This was a great little recipe to experiment with - changing up the type of mustard and subbing a little white wine vinegar for the lemon juice. I liked it so much I tried dijon and yellow mustard both with as much success as the spicy brown. All I added was a pinch of salt to taste. It was perfect over mixed greens, cucumber, thin sliced red onion and cherry tomatoes. This was so easy to make that I'll definitely be using it often! Thanks for a great recipe!

Lemon and Raspberry Trifle in Mason Jars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Wow! Now this was an excellent dessert that made a great presentation! It really didn't take a lot of time or effort to create something special that provided a wonderful ending to dinner. To lighten this up a bit, I used angel food cake vs. pound cake along with reduced fat mascarpone cheese (not easy to find I might add). I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries (any combination of berries on hand will do) layering everything into over-sized wine glasses and topped it off with light whipped cream. These definitely tasted as good as they looked!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Fabulous - plus it's so simple to make! You'd really never know it was a boxed cake - it's that good! It's very moist and bursting with blueberries - what more could you ask for from such a simple recipe! I did opt to use 1/2 cup of melted butter and a couple of Tbsp. of oil. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing! This cake is perfect when you don't have time to make a scratch cake but want something that tastes like you did! It baked perfectly in no time at all. Once it was cooled I dusted it with a bit of powdered sugar. Since everyone liked this so much I decided to make another one and changed it up a bit by adding the juice of one lemon, 1/2 tsp. of lemon extract and 2 Tbsp. of lemon zest to heighten the lemon flavor. I can't wait to try this with other fruit combinations!

Almond Mandarin Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
In a word - Fabulous! And, just as the submitter states, "oh so good and refreshing"! This was a great combination of flavors and gave a nice presentation. The dressing was spot on and like others I subbed dijon for the dry mustard. I opted for thin sliced red onion vs. green and topped this with grilled chicken. This was so easy to throw together and made for a tasty, light summer meal. All I had to do was serve it with warm rolls and a nice glass of wine! Thanks for a great recipe - it's one I'll definitely make again.

Spicy Egg Salad English Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Wonderful! And not to mention a spicy modern take on a regular breakfast sandwich which was a welcome departure from what I typically make. I added a little sliced tomato for some additional color and flavor. Next time I might try this with regular bacon - either way it'll be delicious. This was so good served with fresh fruit and a hot cup of tea! Thanks for a great recipe Occasional Cooker!
