Orange Cinnamon Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
I cut this recipe down to 1 serving using the Change Servings button: 1.5 cups OJ, 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (I used Greek), 3/4 large naval orange, 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. Because Blender Woman thought this smoothie was watered down, I decided to start with just 1/2 cup OJ. I'm so glad I stopped there because even with that amount, this smoothie was still rather "weak and thin" and not thick as I expect a smoothie to be.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I made several changes with this recipe based on what I had on hand, specifically Johnsonville Italian sausage and Ore-Ida cubed hash browns. I just didn't think the cubes would make that outer crust in the muffin cups, so I cooked the sausage in a black skillet and then added the thawed hash browns and extra orange bell pepper. Then I mixed together my eggs, poured them over the sausage mixture, and sprinkled with chives. I baked the skillet in the oven until a toothpick came out clean. After it had been in the oven a while, I realized I had completely forgotten the cheese, so I just added it on top at the end, and it worked out great. This was a delicious dinner served with a salad, and I'll probably make it the same way again just because it's one-pan easy! ***UPDATE 4-15-14 I finally made this recipe as written - in muffin form. I still like it. This time I served the muffins with grits and orange slices. Delicious for breakfast or dinner!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
I needed to go ahead and cook some fresh broccoli I had in the frig, so this was the recipe of choice. I used FF chicken broth, skim milk, a few stems to make up the amount of broccoli needed, and a sprinkle of salt. My immersion blender was perfect for the job (so glad I bought it when it was on sale). It made a nice low-cal lunch chock full of veggies.

Healthy Frozen Fruit Cups: A Dessert You Feel Good Not Guilty About.

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I made this after lunch and then served it to two grandchildren after their naps. They liked it. Then I served it as dessert for my husband and me after dinner. Considering I have not eaten sweets in 8 weeks, I thought it was very refreshing. It's definitely a healthy alternative to sugar laden sweets and snacks and something I don't feel guilty eating. The only problem I see is that the bananas darkened a little. I'm wondering if they will darken even more by tomorrow.

Colorful Vegetable Fajitas

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly and thoroughly enjoyed this meatless meal. As I think about it, I remember I used half the oil it called for and am glad I did.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Sliders

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
This is such an easy recipe, and the sausage gives these sliders extra flavor. I topped them with pepper jack cheese and grilled onions and then let each person add the condiments of choice. I served them with OreIda Zesty french fries. We would prefer the ratio the other way around with more ground beef than sausage, and I will make them that way next time.

Johnsonville® One-Pan Italian

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
Three things I love about this meal: It all cooks in 1 pan, it's ready and on the table in less than 30 minutes, and it uses Johnsonville Italian Sausage :) I was able to lower the calories to 449 calories per serving by using Prego Light Smart Traditional Italian Sauce and Ronzoni Smart Taste Thin Spaghetti. 1/5 of the entire recipe was a large serving size for me.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
Such a delicious, easy soup! I omitted one can of diced tomatoes only because I didn't have it.

Pumpkin Chipotle Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
I was so excited to make this dish because I love everything pumpkin. Well, evidently not everything. I followed the recipe exactly, but my husband nor I cared for the flavor of this dish. I don't know whether it was the peppers in the adobo sauce or the coriander (neither of which I had had before) or the combination of spices. But obviously, we are in the minority since most of the ratings are very good.

Mediterranean Turkey Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
For me, a dressing can make or break a great salad. In this case, the dressing just didn't do anything for me. I loved Butterball's Golden Oven Turkey Breast along with the other ingredients, especially the feta. And adding the pasta was a delightful taste twist. Next time I make this salad (a great light meal for left-over turkey at Thanksgiving), I will use a different dressing and enjoy it much better.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2013
A delicious meatless entree! I used part-skim mozzarella instead of the muenster cheese, and I added some garlic powder and a little crushed red pepper flakes. Even my husband didn't miss the meat.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I followed the recipe ingredients exactly and thoroughly enjoyed this pork tenderloin. I did cook it in the oven instead of on the grill, and it made my house smell like fall! A delicious way to usher in the season with this pork dish and a baked sweet potato on the side.

Smoked Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I really wanted to like this frittata, but it was just ok for us. I wasn't blown away by the flavor of the smoked turkey sausage and probably won't buy it again. I was a little concerned about the fact that the recipe doesn't call for any salt in the eggs. For those of you who might have this same concern, the cheese and sausage are plenty salty and no extra salt is needed.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
This is one of my favorite things I've made with black beans! I thought I had a can of whole kernel corn but didn't, so I used some of my fresh creamed corn I had put in the freezer this summer. I drained it before mixing it with the beans. I omitted the oil and butter to save calories and used low carb tortillas as well. I served it with plain Greek yogurt and extra salsa on the side, and of course, my husband added hot sauce to his. A delicious meatless meal!

Turkey Bacon Breakfast Burrito

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
I tweaked this recipe considerably, but did it for two reasons: to make something my husband would eat and to save calories. My husband doesn't care for avocado or cilantro, so I omitted both those. To save on a few calories, I omitted the oil, used fewer eggs, used 2% sharp cheddar cheese, and used a low carb tortilla. Frankly, I don't think my changes hurt this recipe one bit. It was delicious and something I would make again.

Ground Bison Breakfast Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
I loved using bison for this recipe. It surprisingly tasted like ground chuck with fewer calories and half the fat. However, I would have preferred a stronger taco seasoning rather than the spices listed. I was a little hesitant about using the scrambled eggs, but they were barely discernible. The pineapple salsa was fantastic even though I left out the cilantro (my husband hates it) and used only half of the jalapeno (I'm a heat wimp). I can see this salsa on fish and will make it again. I will definitely buy bison again.

Chili Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
I love how I didn't have to go to the store to buy a bottle of chili sauce for another recipe. I mixed this up following others' suggestions (decreasing brown sugar to 2 T. and adding 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. onion powder, and 1/2 tsp. chili powder) and had my homemade chili sauce in mere minutes.

Hawaiian Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
I've made turkey burgers before and wasn't crazy about them. I'm ashamed to say I wasn't expecting much from this product, but I was very pleasantly surprised! The burger was delicious and I especially enjoyed the Sweet Chili Mayo on it. I fixed two burgers for our dinner tonight and am really glad there are four more in the freezer for another night. I love the way it's packaged too. Separated by paper and stored in a ziplock bag for easy rezipping after taking some out to use. You hit a home run with this one, Butterball.
