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!

Don't Want to Cook Monday Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
For me, it's Don't Want to Cook Wednesday! I only had fresh broccoli so I steamed it in the microwave til al dente'. Mixed a bit of good cheddar in with the soup. On top of everything a good sprinkle of my homemade Cajun Spice; we like everything spicy During the last 5 minutes sprinkled on some french fried onions. It was well received & it's one of those recipes that is easy to play around with according to your tastes.

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I make a lot of spice mixes. This one was just ok IMO. For me Cajun means a bit of heat. I replaced some of the chili powder with hot new mexico chili powder. I cut the salt back & used a good quality sea salt.

Yogurt-Herb Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I really enjoyed this! I did leave out the honey, since the apple cider vinegar is sweet. I also replaced a bit of the apple cider vinegar with fresh lemon. I'm not a big fan of minced onion, so I used less onion powder. Held back just a touch on all of the mustards. The end result is really light & refreshing.

Basil Butter

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I halved this recipe. I wanted to eat it right away with some canned crescent rolls I baked. Yummy! I used quite a bit of fresh garlic; we are garlic nuts. Didn't have seasoned pepper & not really sure what seasoned pepper is so I just used cracked black pepper.

Oven French Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
These didn't work for me & the family didn't care for them. They were limp and oily; maybe even undercooked at this time/temp. We like things spicy, so instead of just salt, I used my homemade no sodium Cajun Spice Mix.

Not Your Mama's Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
My first thought upon seeing the ingredients was "I'm not going to like this." I had everything, so I decided to give it a shot. I was actually very pleasantly surprised & ended up eating more than I should have. I halved the recipe because I only had a 5 ounce can of tuna. I didn't use the full amount of co mushroom or sour cream, but pretty close to it. I felt the amount of onion powder was a bit much so I used a mix of onion powder, garlic powder & black pepper. I'm not a big salt eater & I thought with the canned soup it would be salty enough, but I was wishing I had mixed a bit in. I also think a dash of fresh lemon juice would be nice to set off the tang of the sour cream. These are all easy changes to suit your tastes. I am not sure I totally loved the boiled eggs in there. Next time, I might leave them out or mash them up more. I had some leftover stale garlic bread so I used that on top. Easy, peasy lunch & very filling. Thanks!

Orange Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
I make a lot of breakfast smoothies, but I like them thick. I knew the amount of liquid vs. frozen was going to produce a really thin smoothie; my banana was even frozen. I have a whole bag of sweet, juicy oranges, so I was glad to find a recipe that used the whole orange. My blender is really strong, so I had no issues with the orange being stringy. I added a bit of protein powder and ground flax. I loved it, but next time I will use WAY less milk and more ice. Oh, and I left out the sugar since my fruit is so sweet. I even added the salt, can't detect it though so next time I'll leave it out.

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Thanks for an easy, economical & very healthy recipe. We loved it. The only change I made was to sub the celery for an orange bell pepper (only because I had it & was out of celery). I was able to throw it together very quickly & everyone liked it. Thanks!

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I'm really surprised at how good this was. I usually grill my potatoes. I'm not much of a salt person so I used a coarse sea salt. I thought potatoes needed to be cooked at a high temp, but you've proved me wrong, we loved these. Thanks for sharing!

Blueberry Orange Bran Muffin

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I love these! I did have to sub a bit. My husband is diabetic so I used WW Pastry Flour instead of AP. I thought I had blueberries, but only had blackberries. Luckily, they were really sweet. I cut them in half. My middle son also ate my last orange, so I had to sub a sweet grapefruit. I only used 1/3 cup of brown sugar & added 1/3 a cup of Splenda. They are nutty, moist & flavorful. This will be my go to healthy muffin from now on. Endless possibilities. Thanks for sharing!

In-a-Pinch Ketchup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I love this! My husband has diabetes & high blood pressure & can't have ketchup because of the high sugar/sodium content. Tomato paste is very low in salt & sugar so it's a great base for many things. I took Sarah Jo's idea & used a caffeine free diet soda for the water/sugars. I cooked this longer than the recipe states. The end product was delish! Thanks for sharing!

Emily's Strawberry Balsamic Salad

Oh, yum!! I took this to a work potluck & everyone really liked it. I didn't have the full amount of honey or the shallot, but the dressing was still wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

David's Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
We enjoyed these. I had some Rice Krispies that needed to be used, so it was perfect. It makes them a bit sweet for me, but I really like the texture it gives them. My middle son thought they had oatmeal in them. I used a package of Peanut Butter/Semi-Sweet chips. Thanks!

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Yum, these were eaten faster than I could make them. We really loved them. I was a bit hesitant with the high oven, but they worked. I used my WW Seasoned Bread Crumbs & an Asiago shredded cheese. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. I'll make this often.
