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.

Crunchy Berry Parfait

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Simple and delicious! Plus it not only tastes good but it's good for you too! These are perfect for breakfast or a really nice "guilt free" snack. I opted to use fat free greek vanilla yogurt and threw in a few blackberries as well. 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!

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!

Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Very tasty and just as the sumbitter states this is easy and light with exceptional flavor! Lemon and rosemary pair well together and this was no exception. I pounded the chicken down thin and poked it with a fork. I put everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate for about 6 hours turning it a few times during marinating. Wow - not only was this simple but very tender and bursting with fresh flavor! Thanks for a great recipe Semigourmet!

Sizzling Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
So good! I let the meat marinate overnight which really infused the flavor. Very easy, yet tastes like you slaved for hours. After the meat and veggies were in the tortilla, I added some sliced avocado and a little cheese. Perfect with a side of salsa and sour cream!

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Delicious! These were so easy to make and perfect for a quick meal. Like others, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Since I didn't have corn tortillas I opted to use flour tortillas for a wrap and added some shredded cheese, diced tomato, and lettuce with some sour cream on the side. I served this with Spanish rice - YUM!

Greek-Seasoned T-Bone Steaks with Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Fabulous! And, not to mention a wonderful Greek twist on a classic grilled steak! Since my husband loves steak this proved to be a nice change of pace from our standard way of preparing these. The cucumber and tomato salad was a delicious accompaniment - all we did to complete the meal was add a baked potato and a nice glass of wine!

HERDEZ® Hot Chipotle Mocha

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Wow! While I'm not a big coffee drinker this recipe called for a bit of chocolate so you had me right there! This definitely was a nice departure from other coffee drinks and had a little hit of spice. Perfect for when you want something sweet but don't want to overindulge. Thanks for a great recipe Arizona Desert Flower!

HERDEZ® Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Moist, delicious, and full of flavor - what more could you ask of for from a cornbread recipe? This definitely was a nice change from regular cornbread plus, it had a nice little "kick" to it which made it a perfect accompaniment to a warm bowl of chili. Thanks Paula for a wonderful recipe!

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Wow! This was a big hit! I never realized what yogurt could do to chicken. This was incredibly moist, tender, and juicy with just the right amount of herbs and spices. I opted to use fat free plain greek yogurt along with fat free feta cheese and chopped sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil. I couldn't resist adding a little fresh minced garlic and a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary. I threw everything into a ziploc bag (minus the veggies) and let the chicken marinate for three hours. I skewered the veggies separate from the chicken as they cook at different rates. Overall, very tasty!

Grilled Veggie Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Very good and good for you too! It's hard to get my husband to eat veggies, but when they're grilled he really enjoys them. I opted to add some fresh garlic and a couple of splashes of lemon juice. I also opted out of adding the pinepple as I wasn't sure how that would taste with basil and oregano. Great accompaniment to grilled chicken!

Easy Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Great little biscuit that's easy to throw together when you need something in a pinch! I've made them with milk and with low-fat buttermilk and the result is a light and fluffy biscuit. Don't be afaid of the mayo, you can't taste it! Ya gotta love when a few ingredients you have in the pantry come together to make something so good. And, they take virtually no time at all. I can't wait to experiment with them by adding some herbs and cheddar or parmesan cheese!

Raspberry-OJ-Banana Smoothie

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Delicious! This is so simple and takes only a few ingredients to produce a sweet and tender chicken. I opted for low sodium soy sauce, brown sugar splenda (cut the amount in half), and fresh pineapple juice. I didn't bother boiling anything, just threw it all in a ziploc bag and let it marinate for 30 minutes. I skewered the chicken with fresh pinapple and it was fabulous! I must admit the first time I made this I made a huge mistake by marinating this for over two hours because I forgot it in the fridge. The acid in the pineapple turned the chicken into "paste" - lesson learned....

Hammy Egg Maple Bagel

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
Great combination of sweet and salty! And, I guess this is another one of those "don't knock it 'til you try it" recipes. I used two bagels with one egg, two slices of ham, and a slice of cheese to make two sandwiches. I opted for reduced-fat cheddar and next time I might sub bacon for the ham. Overall, very tasty!

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
Oh my! These are absolutetly delicious! I've made these twice now with excellent results and it's now become one of my husband's favorites. To "health" this up just a little I used low sodium soy sauce, fresh garlic, brown sugar Splenda and replaced the sherry with rice wine vinegar. I mixed it altogether along with the sesame oil and ginger. I put three quarters of the marinade along with the chicken into a ziploc freezer bag and let it marinate all day. The remaining marinade I put into another ziploc bag along with fresh pineapple, viadlia onion, and red and yellow peppers. I skewered the meat separate from fruit and veggies as they cook at different rates. I love when so few simple ingredients combine to create something really special. This was wonderful served with rice!

Spring Asparagus Ham and Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
Wonderful - not to mention a nice departure from the regular breakfast sandwich! I opted to roast my asparagus in the oven at 400 for ten minutes drizzled with a little garlic-infused olive oil. When it was done I then wrapped it with the proscuitto. I added a little sliced tomato for some additional color and flavor. This was so good served with fresh fruit and a hot cup of tea!
