Potato Salad - German Kartoffel

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I've never had German Kartoffel before, so I don't really know how it's supposed to taste. But we do like many different types of potato salad, and this will be added to our list (just in time for Oktoberfest). Spritzer, thanks for a nice new recipe.

Zesty Apple Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I only had one granny smith apple, so that's what I used. Also, used a 6-oz container of Chobani No-Fat Lemon Yogurt which was a delicious dressing for this salad. Many apple salads are loaded with mayo, so the yogurt is a nice deviation. Very nice fruit salad.---------EDIT 9.29.13-----Had this for breakfast today, and it held up very well overnight, did not get runny. Just be sure to drain your mandarin oranges very well.

Honey Bunch Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
I scaled this recipe to 12 servings (1 loaf), but I see that the previous reviewer scaled in half for one loaf. I baked this in a 9x5 pan, and even after 1-1/2 hours on the final rise, it never did rise to 1" above the loaf pan. Unfortunately, when I was putting the pan into the oven, it slipped out of my hand onto the oven rack and deflated, so I didn't take a picture. However, I'm going to try this again, making half a recipe, and using one 9x5 pan. If you're scaling to one loaf, you may want to consider an 8x4 loaf pan which should give you more height. On the positive side, the dough really was easy to work with, and it tasted good, so I'll do an update soon on my next effort.

Cucumber Honeydew Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
My honeydew melon was very ripe and sweet, so I did add more lemon juice to balance out that sweetness. I used less oil and since I had an English cucumber, I didn't peel or seed it. All of the ingredients are harmonious and refreshing, it has a "clean" taste, if that makes any sense to you, and we enjoyed this salad.

Turkey Bacon Breakfast Burrito

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
We had breakfast for lunch today. The fillings are certainly yours for the choosing, but I followed the recipe, except for omitting the oil and garnishing with my pickled jalapeno peppers. I've made many breakfast burritos, but this was my first with turkey bacon, and for us, it was just O.K.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Served this as a dipping sauce for grilled shrimp, and we thought it was delicious. After I took the photo, I did thin out a bit with more coconut milk. Used TJ's light coconut milk, and did increase the hot sauce a bit to suit our taste, otherwise, followed the recipe.

Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
This salad is shredded carrots and apples, slivered almonds, and honey and lemon juice. I didn't think it needed salt or pepper, as it had just the flavor I was looking for. It’s fresh, low cal, low fat, and low carb. Easy to make and such a nice option to the traditional mayo version.

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Some smoothies can get pretty high in fat and calories, but this one's not bad. I probably added more blueberries than called for, but liked all the fruit flavors in this smoothie.

Breakfast Roll-Ups with NUTELLA®

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Quick breakfast that the kids will love. I used a banana which was too ripe (should have used in a smoothie) which was not the best choice. Choose a firm banana, roll tightly, and cut with a very sharp knife. Would be a nice addition to a brunch.

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
It takes a lot longer than 20 minutes for the gelatin to thicken, so plan accordingly. I would have liked a little more cheesecake flavor, but I did use reduced-fat cream cheese, that was the only deviation from the recipe. The strawberry flavor comes through well, and that flavor is the more prominent. As I always do with pies of this type, I put it in the freezer to make slicing easier. All it takes is several minutes at room temp, and you're ready to plate. There was more filling than the pie shell would hold, so I poured it into a couple dessert cups for a pudding parfait. Next time, I'll try fat-free evaporated milk and sugar-free Jell-O to lower the calories, but this is an easy dessert with good eye appeal.

Thanksgiving in a Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I made my own stuffing and mashed potatoes, and although the taste was good, it was a little on the dry side. Perhaps a little chicken broth added to the turkey mixture would have helped. Or maybe a layer of cranberry sauce between the potato and turkey layers??? It certainly would be super easy if you used a box of stuffing and a tub of prepared mashed potatoes which I know is what the recipe writer intended.

Pineapple and Basil Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Trying to use up my abundance of basil right now and ran across this recipe. Wow, this is fantastic! My pineapple was perfectly ripe and sweet, so I added very little sugar. No icy texture that I often find in making sorbet, this one is just smooth and creamy. The first layer of flavor is the pineapple, then the subtle taste of basil kicks in. I cut the recipe in half, used my 1-qt. Cuisinart ice cream maker, and had sorbet 20 minutes later. And if you look at how this recipe breaks down nutritionally, you can eat it guilt free. I would definitely serve this to company, and I know this will be made again very soon. Thanks for sharing your unusual recipe, it's a winner in this house!

Grilled Turkey Cuban Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I assumed the boneless turkey breast would be one piece, but mine was three pieces of meat, each a different size (which I didn't like) which meant each had to come off of the grill at different times. The first piece came off at 30 minutes, and the last at 40 minutes, each tested with a meat thermometer. We had half of the turkey for dinner the first evening, and I refrigerated the rest for the sandwiches which I cooked in my panini pan (not on the grill). That simple little seasoning of cumin, salt and pepper, combined with inserting slivers of garlic into the breast resulted in incredibly tasty meat and a fantastic Cuban sandwich. I made the honey mustard from a recipe on this site. This sandwich is not the healthiest and is something that I would consider a splurge nutritionally, but I would make it again (just not too often).

Summery Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
I was a little concerned about 1 tsp of pepper, but it wasn't too much. The lime really brightens this salad (I added just a little more lime juice). Pretty nice bean salad, and a healthy dose of daily fiber.

Strawberry Banana Blend

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
The store didn't have strawberry sorbet, so I bought strawberry-raspberry sherbet which worked great. Other than the sub for the sorbet, followed the recipe to the letter, and this ranks in the top 3 smoothies that I've ever made. All the fruits partner well, the sherbet thickened and added sweetness, and the OJ really brightened the flavor. Wouldn't change a thing.

Cinnamon Maple Granola with Coconut

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
Had just the right amount of sweet maple flavor, even without the maple sugar (had to sub brown sugar). FYI, this recipe will give you about 2 cups of granola. Enjoyed this morning as a delicious topper on my breakfast yogurt. Thanks, AliRose, for sharing.

Smoked Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
Can't say that we were crazy about this. We thought the smoked turkey sausage tasted more like a frankfurter than what we consider smoked sausage, and that was the biggest disappointment. We eat Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage which I think comes closer to what I consider traditional smoked sausage (that I just don't eat anymore). Don't really mean to bash Butterball, but I just compared the nutritional info for these two brands, and they're very, very close. This all could be taste preference, but I just didn't care for this sausage, and it's unlikely I'll make this again.

Apple Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
Followed the recipe to the letter, and it was perfectly cooked at 50 minutes. Only thing I did differently was bake it in a 10" springform pan, rather than a 10" tube pan. This turned out very moist, light, and the cream cheese filling gives you a hint of cheesecake (IMO). Next time, I'll double the amount of cinnamon in the topping, as I'd like to taste more of it. Makes a big coffee cake, and a good one, too.

Greek Salad V

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, and a healthy grind of salt and pepper is all you need for this fresh salad. I have fresh oregano growing on the porch, so I used that instead of dried.

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
This recipe has a lot of butter, so I did cut back on the oil. I zested the lemon and added it to the recipe, and I'll even add more lemon juice the next time, but it still was pretty darn tasty. I cut the potatoes into 1" to 1-1/2" cubes, and next time, I'll cube them a little larger. Timing will depend on the size of your potatoes, and mine were cooked at 30 minutes. I lined the baking pan with regular aluminum foil, and they did stick to the foil. I forgot about the non-stick Reynolds Wrap I have, but will use that in the future. Very nice, full-flavored side dish, enjoyed, and definitely will make again.
