Apple Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This pie was delicious. I used 3/4 cup apple butter as others suggested. The pie was a little runny, so next time I will add another tablespoon of flour. I also used an 8" pie plate and will use a 9" next time. I cooked the pie an extra 15 minutes.

Spicy Cheese Quick Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
This is a dense, bread that's tender on the inside and crusty on the outside with a predominant flavor of Italian seasoning and cayenne pepper. I used fat-free half and half and skim milk. This bread was the perfect accompaniment for soup.

Asian Pear and Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
A delicious way to use overripe pears! Loved it! All flavors came through without one overpowering another. I did use Truvia, though, instead of sugar. Love the pretty color of this smoothie.

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
This is a delicious soup, and I left out the meat! I can only imagine how good it would be with the kielbasa. I wanted a lighter lunch, packed full of veggies, so I added more carrot, onion, and diced red pepper, as well as red pepper flakes. (You can add to your own liking - mushrooms, celery, etc.) I saw no reason to cook the rice first, so I just added it in with the lentils to cook, replacing all the water with chicken broth. I halved the recipe and am so glad I have leftovers for more lunches this week.

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.

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.

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.

Cinnamon-Raisin Peanut Butter Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
Just another variation on the good ole P, B, & J that you can customize to your own taste. Less honey, more cinnamon, fewer raisins, a different type of bread? Whatever suits your taste buds.

Quick Banana Milkshake (Ice Cream Free)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
I love recipes like this because I can adapt them so easily. I used almond milk, a frozen banana with no added ice, and Truvia instead of sugar. A quick low-cal pick-me-up snack for the afternoon.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. I expected it to need more sweetness, but it didn't. I thought I would not like the plain yogurt topping, but I did (used plain nonfat Greek yogurt). I didn't think the nuts would add all that much flavor to the recipe, but they did. I cut the recipe down to 2 servings. The only other change I made was to grate the apple. This made a delightful, filling breakfast...one I'm looking forward to having again tomorrow morning.

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Such a fresh tasting dip and one that feels healthy. I used a combo of red and green peppers, omitted one of the jalapenos, and omitted the cilantro because no one in my family except for me likes it.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
An easy sugar cookie that certainly lives up to its name. I used my heaping tablespoon scoop which made 26 cookies. I baked each pan of 12 for 14-15 minutes.

Kerry's Beany Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Delicious salad! I subbed chickpeas for the kidney beans which I thought I had but didn't, and it turned out great! Next time, I will definitely cut the oil down by half. ***This salad makes a huge amount...surely more than 6 servings. The leftovers make a delicious lunche throughout the week.

Roasted Balsamic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I especially like this because the balsamic is not an overpowering favor, as it can sometimes be. A very nice different take on cauliflower. Next time, I'd like to cut my cauliflower smaller and let it marinate for a little while.

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly except for pounding the meat. I just cut small 1 inch medallions and found this to work out just fine. This dish is pretty spicy hot yet so full of flavor I didn't mind the heat. I served it over rice.

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This is a fabulous way to cook asparagus and not get too many extra calories! I cooked mine 15 minutes and next time will decrease the sea salt just a little.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
My husband has been begging for an apple pie for a month. I finally had time to make one today and chose the #1 apple pie recipe on this site. It didn't disappoint him at all! The man who rarely gives recipes 5 stars gives Grandma Ople a high five with the stars to match.

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!
