Lazy Girl Pizza Margherita

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
I used oat bran & whole wheat pita bread, added a few olive slices, and since I had no roma tomatoes on hand, just sliced some grape tomatoes which worked fine. Using pesto sauce as a base is flavorful, but I found pre-cooking the pita bread for 8 minutes was too long; the timing may have something to do with the type of pita bread you use. I ended up with a “crispy/crunchy” pita pizza, so I will cut that time back to 2-3 minute next time. But I liked it, it definitely is quick and easy to make, and tasted good for lunch today!

Healthy Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I did skip the egg and didn't miss it, and I used "light/reduced fat" mayonnaise instead of "fat free." I like the little crunch you get from the cucumber and that little zing from the fresh lemon juice. This is a good option for traditional fat-laden tartar sauce, and I'd make again.

Dijon Roasted Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
For my personal taste, I'll add more dijon mustard the next time, but we enjoyed this. Watch your time, as mine was done in 30 minutes. Very nice side dish.

MeMe's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
I used Spicy V8®, and it definitely ramped up the flavor without being too spicy or overpowering the other ingredients. And I will always use that when making this recipe, too! I'll admit that this is the first time I've eaten pasta fagioli, and I have no idea what Olive Garden®'s version tastes like, but I loved all of the bold and rich layers of flavor in this recipe. Thanks, Karen Osborne, for this tasty soup, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Tomato, Basil, and Corn Salad with Apple Cider Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
We love a summer meal of fresh corn on the cob and chilled sliced tomatoes, so I felt pretty certain that we'd like this any time of the year, and we did. I used Birds Eye® frozen baby gold and white corn and when combined with multi-colored grape tomatoes, this quick salad not only tasted good, but it looked good! Simple ingredients for a simple salad with great results.

Pork Tenderloin with a Honey Grape Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. The sauce really styles up what would be a ordinary grilled pork tenderloin entree. It comes together quickly for a weekday dinner and has very nice presentation.

Yucatan Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
This is very different and very good, too. Honestly, I was concerned with the high fat content on this recipe. Even putting that aside, the amount of oil seemed excessive, so I cut it in half with good success. The warm potatoes soaked up the dressing quickly, and there was no oil sitting in the bottom of the bowl. I charred the poblano peppers outside on the grill, and you do get an occasional zing from the poblanos (not much, it's subtle). I mixed up the dressing and thought it was a little bland, so I added more lime juice, and I tossed in some chopped red bell pepper for a pop of color. Nice side dish Lars.

Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Cranberry Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Made this recipe exactly as written and wouldn’t change a thing. I had it for lunch yesterday, but I think this would make an outstanding dinner salad with grilled shrimp. The pomegranate-cranberry dressing is sensational, and I think toasted pecans sprinkled over the top would be a nice addition. Enjoyed, very good recipe.

Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Flake Baked Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
It's sooooo nice to see a chicken casserole that doesn't include a can of creamed soup, and the texture on this is perfectly creamy. I did cook my chicken breast whole and then cubed. This was just a little heavy on the O.J. for our personal taste, but that citrus flavor is an important part of what makes this special. I drizzled just a little bit of melted butter on the corn flakes but, otherwise, followed the recipe. And for anybody who buys rotisserie chicken at the store, keep this recipe in mind. There are so many layers of flavor you're gonna' be surprised, and surprised in a good way. Donna Henderson Hopgood thanks for sharing your recipe, it's a winner!

Spicy Cajun Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
OK, I made one change, I cut the oil in half to get the calories and fat down, and they still tasted terrific. These are perfect for game day snacks. The spices are so tasty on these pretzel nuggets, and they have just the right amount of kick.

Fruit Cobbler from Mott's®

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
I was fairly impressed with this recipe. Considering it uses canned peaches and pears, and I used frozen blueberries, it came out tasting pretty darn fresh. Winter's coming and that means sky-high prices for fresh fruit, so this will come in handy for a quick and easy dessert. I used Heart-Smart Bisquick for the cobbler topping and sprinkled with some Turbinado sugar. I did cut back on the amount of applesauce that I mixed into the fruit, it just seemed like too much. This is a good compromise for a fresh-fruit cobbler.

Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
Very good on french toast this morning. A little on the thin side (I thickened a bit), but the spices are spot on. Bairnmaeve , thanks for sharing your recipe.

Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut with Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
I was concerned that this might turn out bland, so I used a combination of beef broth and beer in place of the water. I used caraway seeds which the recipe author says could be substituted for fennel (I typically only use fennel seed in Italian dishes). First, I wouldn’t add “water to cover” because I ended up with way too much liquid at the end. The pork chops ended up being very tender and moist, but the apples pretty much cooked to mush, and the sauerkraut just didn’t have much flavor. Overall, this meal was OK, but a bit bland. My friend’s sauerkraut recipe calls for juniper berries, whole cloves, and a bay leaf which bring incredible flavor to the kraut, and I’ll never again make sauerkraut without them. As suggested, I did serve this with mashed potatoes on the side .

German-Style Beet Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
I had 3 good-sized golden beets that needed to be used up, so that was the inspiration for making this recipe today. The single biggest criticism I have is that 2 Tbsp of caraway seeds is way too much, it simply dominated everything. Unfortunately, I couldn't even taste the cloves or horseradish because the caraway seeds overpower even those strong flavors. We ate it chilled and enjoyed it, but would have liked it a lot more with maybe 2 tsp of caraway seeds rather than 2 Tbsp.

Delicious Spicy Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2014
I read the reviews, and the first thing I did was cut the acid in half; didn't have a lemon, so I used half a lime. I don't think this needs any salt at all considering that one of the ingredients is soy sauce which is loaded with sodium. Although I added it this time, I won't in the future....too salty! One cup of chopped peanuts is waaaaaay too much IMO (and that has to be where most of the calories are coming from) so just chop a few and use as a garnish. I used multi-colored small sliced tomatoes, a jalapeño, and chili-lime cashews instead of peanuts. Quick little side salad with an interesting combo of flavors. The apple partners well with the spiciness of the jalapeños. It's good, and I will make again, just needs a little tweaking.

Honey Mustard Honey Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I thought it strange that you use honey mustard to make honey mustard dressing, but I decided to give it a try anyway, thinking it just might end up being something extraordinary. I definitely like the lemon that peeks through in this dressing, but I don't know that I'd make this again, since regular honey mustard works fine for me. This is good, but I really wouldn't say that there's anything that totally differentiates it from another honey mustard dressing that I use from this site.

Thai Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
The recipe author basically says to adjust to your own taste, so I bumped up the red curry paste (it has a kick), cut back on the red pepper flakes, and the spiciness was just about perfect! By all means, use rice vinegar, IMO it's really important to the authentic flavor of this salad. I did add a little bit of chopped cilantro, otherwise, followed the recipe. Enjoyed, this is a really nice and easy addition to an Asian meal.

Cauliflower Soup with Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
Thoroughly, totally, 100% enjoyed this soup. I used my immersion blender to puree the cooked veggies and broth and used chicken stock instead of water. I steamed the cauliflower that was set aside for 1 minute 15 seconds in the microwave, then stirred it in, and loved the texture that it qdded to the creamy soup. The fresh dill brought a subtle flavor and, unfortunately, I forgot the cumin seeds (which were optional anyway). Kac, thumbs up on your soup recipe, it's a winner!

Pumpkin Popovers

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
I hate to be harsh as the first reviewer of a new recipe, but I also want to be honest. Unfortunately, these were a total failure. Not only did they not look like a popover, but the texture was very heavy and dense, very unlike a popover. Not sure what happened because I followed the recipe to the letter, didn't change a thing or substitute anything. And even if the appearance and the texture had been good, they simply needed more pumpkin flavor. Sam Nemati, sorry for the unfavorable review, I had high hopes, but these pumpkin popovers were a huge disappointment.
