Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I made half a recipe, measured the pancake batter by 1/4 cup, and came out with 9 of them. I followed the recipe exactly and found them a little dense, which I expected due to the whole wheat flour. Still good though, especially topped with strawberries and bananas. I felt that I had made a healthy breakfast since I used whole wheat flour, skim milk, and fruit but had not sacrificed on flavor.

Quick Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
What a wonderful recipe to make with left-over pork chops! My cooking method may have been slightly different, and I added more pork, more light soy sauce, green peas, and eggs. But that doesn't change the fact that this is a wonderful recipe to suit your own family's taste.

Mexican Corn Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
Actually, I liked this much better before I added the salsa. I will definitely make this again adding diced fresh tomatoes before serving.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
I know a serving of peanut butter is 2 T., but it's just too much for me. 1 T. divided between two slices of bread is plenty to taste yet not have your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth. 1/2 a banana is plenty too. While I have had peanut butter and banana sandwiches before, I've never grilled them until now. I like it.

Three Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
While this is very good, it does need some tweaking for next time. Even though the chicken is covered in saltines, it still needs more salt, as do the veggies. I cooked the veggies in only 1/2 T. butter. I added the rest to cook the chicken, not just brown it. The butter wasn't really enough, but I was using a non-stick pan, so it was fine. Next time, I will double the chicken broth and flour since it really wasn't enough to even moisten the pasta I topped it with. Then it might not qualify for a healthy MyPlate recipe, but it will taste better :)

Emmi's Banana Wraps

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
Oh, my! This takes a peanut butter and banana sandwich to a whole new level! I used a low carb/high fiber tortilla instead of whole wheat, and I made my own granola using Stovetop Granola from this site. Best lunch I've had in quite a while.

Black Beans and Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
I needed to not have to stand and cook this, so I put it all in the slow cooker. I did season the pork shops with garlic salt and a light sprinkle of cumin. Not outstanding, but good and tender.

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Oh. My. Goodness. This is unbelievable! I have tried mashed cauliflower before and it was terrible. I don't know if this is so good because of steaming it or using the food processor instead of a mixer or adding cream cheese and parm. But whatever it is, I'm not messing with it! My husband even thought he was eating mashed potatoes (just not my usual ones :) I will definitely make this again. ***7/31/13 - I made this again and messed with it :) I used Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb Cheese Wedges and refrigerated minced garlic. I also used my immersion blender which worked very well. Came out great and was even easier to make with less clean up.

Spanish Potato Omelet

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
This tastes delicious and is perfect for breakfast or dinner! Two things I will need to address next time I fix this: 1) Too much oil. I think I could cut it in half. 2) This time, I added the onions when I turned the potatoes over but then had to remove the browned potatoes so the onions could cook further. Perhaps next time, I should add them halfway through the cooking time of the first side, at maybe the 5 minute mark? There will definitely be a next as this is a delicious, filling meal.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Only change I made was to use equal amounts of bread crumbs and parmesan. My 2 yr-old and 5 yr-old grands ate them up.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
This dipping sauce was too heavy on the mustard with not enough honey for my taste. Problem solved with just a little extra honey added. My 2 yr-old and 5 yr.-old grands loved dipping their homemade chicken nuggets in it.

Really, Truly Gorgeous Dried Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
I used what dried fruits I had. No figs, so I used cherries instead. No dark raisins, so I doubled the golden ones. The apricots give this salad color, so I might add just a few more next time. I did cut them up at the end to spread the color out. I didn't want to wait overnight, so I put them in the water and brought them to a boil. Then I covered the pot, removed them from the heat, and let them sit for an hour. After that I continued with the recipe and they turned out just fine. This is delicious and reminds me of warm fruit compotes I've had before. Definitely delicious for any occasion even if not really, truly gorgeous.

Yogurt Parfait

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
A quick and easy breakfast. I used strawberries in place of the blackberries, but frankly, you could use any fruit. Since I didn't have any granola, I made Stovetop Granola from this site.

Stovetop Granola

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
This is my first time even tasting granola, much less making it. I think I may have cooked it too long, but lesson learned.

Chicken and Vegetable Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
This is a great summer salad and one to use up leftover chicken. I actually had some chicken in the freezer that I pulled out for this. I omitted the black olives because I don't like them and added grated carrots. I even tried to lighten it up a bit by using fat-free zesty Italian dressing.

Lemony Cucumbers

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
My favorite thing about this cucumber salad is that it doesn't call for oil or mayonnaise. A perfect, light, refreshing way to use up extra cukes.

Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I loved this salad! The two different vinegars and the cumin gave this a fabulous flavor. I just ate it as a salad, but I can definitely see it as a dip with tortilla chips at a barbecue.

Pineapple Cinnamon Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
So many of the reviews warned against the spices being too overwhelming, so I just sprinkled them to taste. I know I didn't use anywhere near as much as what was called for. In the end, I loved the flavor the pineapple gave as well as the light flavor of the spices.

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Mmmm. This is just a scrambled omelet :) I used a red bell pepper instead of green because it's what I had. It made a fabulous entree for breakfast for dinner night.
