Easy Salmon Acqua Pazza

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Extremely quick & flavorful. You really need to know your microwave for this. My salmon was already partially cedar-plank cooked (although the middle was too red for me) so I did the onion/tomato mixture for 3 minutes by themselves. I felt that really cooked them too much, the tomatoes were total mush. I threw the salmon on top for about 2 minutes at 50% power. It finished cooking the salmon and gave me a nice, fresh tasting sauce to eat with it. Next time, the tomatoes will go in at a later time. But, overall it was a great, easy, healthy tasting dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I don't normally review recipes that I've changed, but I think this one is worth it. A friend made me margarita cupcakes for my birthday & I've been craving them ever since. I wanted to use this recipe (since I had no box mix) and make it into a margarita cake. I used less vanilla extract (not a huge fan of it). I made cake flour out of the all purpose and sifted several times, I replaced the milk with Jose Cuervo margarita mix. I always throw scratch mix cakes into the freezer before frosting (it had cooled a bit). I think it keeps them from drying out so much. Scratch cakes are naturally going to be dryer than box mixes (no preservatives). I topped it with a delicious lime cream cheese frosting. It's fantastic!

Tomato Spinach and Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Yum, this was good! I halved the recipe, used a red onion, a 14 oz can of Italian flavored Diced tomatoes and way more garlic. I left out the sugar. Easy, peasy lunch that was tasty!

Cantaloupe Berry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
I love cantaloupe in smoothies, but I always use frozen fruit. I subbed strawberries for the raspberries and vanilla yogurt for the plain. I left out the sugar. Since my fruit was frozen, I had to add some skim milk to get it mixed. I like my smoothies the consistency of thick milkshakes. The cantaloupe adds a lightness that I love, especially starting with a good sweet cantaloupe.

Lightened Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
Yum, this is SO good! I used Whole Wheat Pastry and left out the white sugar. I only had a 6 oz vanilla yogurt so I used the whole container. Used a bit more cinnamon because I love it. Used reduced fat crunchy Jif. It's very moist & full of flavor. Thanks!

Simply Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
My family likes this. I make my own ww seasoned bread crumbs and italian seasoning. I also make sure that all of the chicken pieces are uniform in size. I took them out at about 25 min & they were perfect. Easy, peasy!

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Yum! I used 2 garden fresh zucchini, and left the skin on. I made my own bread crumbs with some stale whole wheat bread & used my homemade italian seasoning. Didn't use that much butter & threw in some of my low sodium cajun seasoning. My husband thought they needed to cook a bit longer, but I thought they were good. Thanks!

Strawberry Ribbon Bread

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I halved this recipe; I'm the only one who will eat it in my house. I used fresh strawberries which I soaked in sugar and fat free half n half. Others mentioned that the batter was too dry, so I went ahead and used the full 1/4 of oil. I didn't have any red food coloring and in the filling I used a whole egg instead of half. I also think I added too much orange extract. My bread tastes more orange than strawberry. I felt like my cream cheese layer soaked in so next time I'll try & make that layer thicker. It's good & moist, thanks for sharing.

Sweet-Sour Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This didn't go over very well for me. The apple cider vinegar was just too overwhelming. I didn't have peanuts, so I toasted sunflower seeds & slivered almonds. I used a sweet red onion and less sugar. As is, I didn't care for it, so I cooked up some bacon & added a bit of fresh lemon juice. I'll use a different vinegar next time. To me this was all sweet with no sour.

Microwave Sponge Pudding

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Wow, I saw this and said to myself "there is no way that works." Well, I'm actually totally shocked that it does. My microwave is very strong, so I cooked it at 2:15. Melted a Hershey bar & bam, quickest sweet tooth fix ever! The actual cake w/o the chocolate is pretty dry & unimpressive.

Mondi's Super Simple Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This recipe is just what it says "super simple". We liked it, but mine was a tad bit dry. Next time I'll start checking at 45-50 minutes. I should have made gravy out of the drippings, they looked yummy. I'm not a huge dried basil fan, and hubbie can't have salt so I liberally sprinkled with my homemade all purpose seasoning. Thanks for the recipe!

Strawberry Pineapple Bread

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
This is off the charts delish. I halved the recipe & got 3 mini loaves. I subbed most of the oil with applesauce (I did use a bit of oil). I left out the nuts, but added in 2 kiwis. So good! Almost like a cobbler baked into a bread. Yum!

IBBZ Rice, Broccoli Cheese Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Excellent, filling breakfast! I always have leftover brown rice & this is an easy way to use it up. I measured and only used 1 1/4 cups of brown rice. I had a bit less mozz, so I threw in a bit of Kraft parmesan blend. I added 2 large cloves of garlic since I'm a garlic nut. I used a homemade spicy ranch. Yum! It made 8 muffins for me. Might just have to go back for another one. Thanks for sharing, I'll be making these a lot.

Kickin' Crunchy Oven "Fried" Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Yum! Thanks for the recipe. I didn't follow it perfectly. I only had Rice Chex, so I subbed those for the cornflakes. And for the egg mixture, I used a very spicy ranch instead. It was leftover from a catered lunch & it's so good I had to use it. I only had boneless breasts. I took ElCay's suggestion and roasted broccoli & potato wedges, very good dinner, everyone really liked it. Thanks for for sharing!

Sweet & Salty cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Yummy! Nice little cookie. Note to myself for next time, cool the peanuts before throwing them in. I was using mini choco chips & the peanuts started melting them. Delish, everyone enjoyed them, thanks for sharing the recipe!

Lemon Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Yum, great recipe! I did use more lemon. I tried too hard to get the bottom layer up on the sides. Next time I will just smush it all in the bottom of the baking dish. I had too much in the corners & not enough in the middle of the pan. Great recipe that is even more lemony after cooling completely. Thanks for sharing Baking Nana!

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This is off the charts lemony goodness. I am a huge lemon lover so I did use more, and also added some lemon extract. This batter was silky & sinful! I'd call this more of a cake than bread. Dense, moist almost poundcake type texture. I used my Pampered Chef mini loaves baker and it made 2 fairly big ones, I might have gone for 3. It was hard to get them out, but they are so good noone is going to care if it doesn't look perfect. Yum, thanks!

Garlic Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
I wasn't planning on liking this; I don't adore Dijon. But, wow! This is really, really good. I never would have thought that red wine vinegar and mustard would go well together, but yum! My garlic cloves were really big, so I only used 2. Love it, thanks for sharing your recipe.

Muffins Spencer

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Thanks for sharing this recipe! I've made a lot of muffins for my diabetic husband and this was one of the best! He can't stand bananas so I microwaved a small sweet potato and mashed it with a bit of buttermilk. I used Whole Wheat Pastry for the whole wheat flour. I used Diet Ginger Ale & less walnuts, only because I'm running out & they are so expensive. I should have read the recipe all of the way before starting because I put all 24 in my standard size 12 muffin tin. I was afraid they would be a huge mess, but they turned out wonderfully! It's a lot of work for muffins, but very worth it!
