Vegan Banana Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
Love the flavor that the cinnamon and pecans add to this! Personally, I prefer just a little added Truvia, but that's a preference. The process for this recipe works to make a soft serve ice cream, or wait a few minutes (or blend longer) for a thick, drinkable smoothie.

Mango Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I love salads with fruit in them. I had a mango I needed to use and found this recipe. So glad I did. Sara, the submitter, suggested we leave it plain or serve it with our favorite vinaigrette. I usually prefer a white balsamic vinegar dressing, but this time I added a light cream cheese-orange dressing I had made for another salad and it was delicious.

Orange Salad with Cinnamon Dressing

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
My! What a refreshing and different salad! Fresh, light, and fruity! I admit I added only half the cinnamon because I've had several bad experiences lately with cinnamon in recipes that no one has reviewed before me. I loved the flavor from adding the zest. I'd definitely make this again, especially for a ladies luncheon.

Watermelon Juice

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
As the recipe submitter suggested, I used crushed ice instead of the water because I wanted a slushy drink. Just a suggestion, you may need to adjust the sugar depending on how sweet your watermelon is. Mine wasn't very sweet, so making this drink out of it was a perfect way to use it.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
The best review for this chicken is that it was totally approved by the 3 yr. old grandchild! Personally, I would prefer the chicken coated in butter rather than olive oil. I did use Italian style breadcrumbs and lightly salted the chicken which probably helped give it more flavor.

Frozen Strawberry Smoothie Bars

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
Very good yogurt bars which I really like (and it's my vote that counts :) The grandkids prefer popsicles not made with yogurt.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
There's a learning curve with making these kale chips. Knowing the amount of olive oil and salt to use comes with experience since "bunches" are different sizes. I got mine too salty this first time, but next time I'll know better. A fun, good conversation piece!

Delicious and Easy Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I always cook my corn on the cob in the shuck in the microwave for delicious, crispy corn. This corn tasted just as good and my husband didn't have to burn his hands shucking the corn. He says this is the way he wants his corn from now on :)

No Mushroom Beef Tips

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
My family loved this! I always use lite soy sauce and did in this recipe as well. I also used Better than Bouillon beef flavor for the beef bouillon cubes. Next time I will use less or use lower sodium beef broth. It was a little salty to me, but I didn't salt the noodles so all was well. I also wonder if flank steak sliced really thin would be more tender than the stew meat.

Smooth Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I'm not a hot chocolate connoisseur, but this is thinner and less sweet than other hot chocolates I've had. I'm ok with that.

Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I like the fact that this smoothie has fewer calories in it due to the powdered peanut butter and the unsweetened almond milk. I really like the peanut butter and chocolate combo. However, I don't care for the cinnamon flavor in it...and I really like cinnamon, just not in this particular smoothie. I will omit it the next time I make this drink.

Roasted Asparagus and Apple Salad

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
I like this salad very much. I failed to read the other reviews before making this yet cut the honey in half, just as the others did. I took the photo but then ended up adding grilled chicken and strawberries to make our dinner entree tonight.

Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
I cut the recipe in half and still had 4 large pancakes! The egg whites measured 1/2 cup. I used a 1/4 cup measure for each pancake. The batter is very thin and does end up making rather flat pancakes, but put strawberries and blueberries on top, and you have a delicious, no-sugar added, very filling, healthy breakfast!

Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
This is a very basic salad to which so much more can be added, but which if left simple, is still quite tasty and healthy. I added my favorite dressing - golden balsamic vinegar. Other times I add strawberries and shredded chicken for a heartier lunch. But any way you fix it, this salad is delicious!

What a delicious breakfast and looks so fancy too! Such an easy recipe to add more or less of what you happen to like.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
One of the things I love about this site is the reviews by home cooks. I took their advice and cut the amount of dressing by half and lessened the sweetness considerably, using a stevia-erythritol substitute. So glad I did. I decided not to measure the eggs, just adding two to the overall mix. Such an easy, delicious salad.

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 17, 2014
I used half golden balsamic and half dark balsamic. Not a favorite of mine. The balsamic flavor is rather strong. And as others have already said, the spices don't rise above that vinegar flavor.

Spinach and Kale Smoothie

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
I used 2 cups of baby spinach I had frozen as well as golden flax seeds instead of the chia. I couldn't taste the spinach or the kale...mostly peanut butter and banana. I did add 2 packets of Truvia as a personal preference for more sweetness. It made a breakfast that I felt was nutritious and healthy, and it was a beautiful shade of green and tasted good!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
This recipe seemed doomed for failure from the beginning due to my inattention...but it turned out great! I wanted to use some leftover rice but didn't have quite enough, so I added onions and the pepper tops to the ground beef as it browned, hoping they would take up some of the space that extra rice would incorporate. Then I goofed up and added the Italian seasoning to the beef mixture instead of the tomato sauce. I decided to add 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder to the sauce anyway to pour over the tops of the peppers. I also didn't baste...there was nothing to baste with! At the end of the cooking time, I topped the peppers with some mozzarella cheese. These turned out delicious!
