Cottage Cheese Bake

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
I really like this. I used Daisy 2% low-fat cottage cheese and added the garlic powder, salt, and pepper before cooking. So glad I added the optional garlic powder. It gave this a great flavor. I ended up cooking it about 35 minutes. After I cut it, there was a very small pool of liquid in the bottom of the dish and on the plates that took away from the appearance just a little. This might not have happened had I used a full fat cottage cheese. I made this for a side to salmon, but I see enjoying it for lunch too.

Taco-Seasoned Salmon

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
I love the crunchy crust on the outside of the salmon. I used homemade taco seasoning from this site, Taco Seasoning I. Will definitely make this salmon again!

Turkey and Feta Grilled Sandwich

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
I really like the flavors here: the turkey, the dressing, and the feta. I don't care for the fact that the lettuce wilts. Next time I will omit it and put it on after cooking. I also will use less butter to fry it. The sandwich came out too greasy for me.

Tasty Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
A delicious breakfast this morning! It might not have been necessary, but I ground the oats a little first. I subbed unsweetened almond milk for the low-fat milk (which I assumed meant skim) and I used Chobani non-fat strawberry Greek yogurt. Then I added everything else. Smooth and creamy!

Super Smoothie

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
I was very hesitant about the cucumber in this smoothie, but it's just barely detectable and actually gives it a really fresh taste. I can see making this on a really hot day to cool off...it's that refreshing. Since the calorie count is so low, I actually drank 2 servings (cutting the recipe in half for just me).

Simple Greek Yogurt Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2014
While this is delicious, it is pretty sweet. The brown sugar takes the tang away from the Greek yogurt though. The thing I like about this recipe is that it is easy to adapt to your own preferences: use less brown sugar or sub dill pickle relish to take some of the sweet away, or use Dijon for a slightly different flavor. But it made a really good lunch the way it is written!

Banana Pineapple Green Blend

Reviewed: May 11, 2014
As the submitter suggested, I subbed a different liquid-almond milk, and this smoothie came out quite good. I even used frozen spinach and the smoothie turned out ice cold, which I like. I did add some Truvia to sweeten it just a bit. A very refreshing smoothie. Perfect for hot summer days!

Quick Avocado Smoothie

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Hmmm. Not sure how to rate this smoothie. It was too savory for my taste and I even added 3 packets of Truvia. The avocado makes it very creamy. I used a frozen banana and still added ice to make it really cold. I also think this makes at least 2 servings, maybe more, especially since 1 serving is 555 calories!

Refrigerator Raspberry Oatmeal

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
I must say as far as refrigerator oatmeals go, this is a really good one. The all fruit preserves I used was all the sweetener I needed. I also subbed golden flax seed for the chia seeds.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
I really wanted to love this soup. I can't believe I don't since all the reviews rave about it. But I just don't.

Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
Love this salad! The kale came in my CSA box and was my very first experience with it. I subbed considerably less of an erythritol-xylitol blend instead of sugar, yet the dressing was still pretty sweet. The salad itself is sweet with the blueberries and cranberries, so my word of advice is to add sweetener sparingly to your own personal taste. I love all the crunch in this salad!

Perfect Mixed Greens

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
This is my first time to ever fix greens. I received 10 oz. mustard greens, 10 oz. turnip greens, and not quite 16 oz. collards in my CSA box. I cut this recipe in half and followed the directions...all except for the amount of sugar. I added only 1 T. and it was perfect.

Whole Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
I love the seasoning on this chicken; however, it is almost the same as this site's Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style. This recipe adds an extra 1/2 tsp. cayenne. The good thing about cooking the chicken in the slow cooker is it requires no attention and it is so tender it falls off the bone. The down side? It falls off the bone and lacks in appearance. Still delicious though!

Quick Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
This is the first time I've put avocado on a salad, and I discovered I love it! I wanted this salad for my lunch, so I cut it down to 1 serving. Too hard to figure out 1/8 of everything, so I just eyeballed the ingredients and substituted what I happened to have: green leaf lettuce for the romaine, yellow and orange sweet mini peppers for the green. I used 2 slices of bacon, but bacon makes everything better! I was surprised I liked the lime juice for the dressing. But really, this is a very good and light salad!

Avocado Sauce Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
I really wanted to make this recipe but didn't have any English muffins, so I used toast instead, cut into rounds. I sliced my small Roma tomato into 3 thick slices and used all of them. I cut this recipe down to just one serving, and while the salt seemed a little too much for my taste, that is something that can easily be adjusted the next time. Even though this recipe is somewhat time-consuming, it does make for a really nice breakfast that tastes delicious!

Avocado Aioli

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2014
Oh. My. Word! I could have eaten the entire recipe of this aioli! What would that be......376 calories plus the mini sweet peppers? I could make a meal out on this! I had a partial bag of peppers that needed to be used (hence, a shriveled pepper here and there), and this recipe complemented them perfectly. This would make a fantastic appetizer for my next party.

Avocado Banana and Walnut Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
These muffins don't seem very sweet when they come out of the oven and are eaten warm. Oddly enough, they seem sweeter at room temp. I actually liked them better after they cooled.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
This recipe needs more spice and seasoning. Definitely needs salt in the noodles as well as the ground beef mixture. Next time, I'd also like to use Italian tomatoes rather than plain ones.

Avocado Cheesecake with Walnut Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
This "cheesecake's" texture was a little off-putting. Not thick like a cheesecake, but definitely silky and creamy. Like others, I also tasted a key lime undertone. It definitely needs the raspberry sauce for the sweetness. I can't say I disliked it, but it wasn't a dessert my family cared for, not even my avocado-loving daughter.
