"Went a bit heavy on the potatoes and a bit light on the corn (2 lg. Yukon golds, unpeeled & 5 ears corn) and instead of red bells used 1/2 jalapeno & 1 Anaheim chili, both sauteed along w/ the red onion for a bit of a kick. I sprinkled the top w/ a bit of fresh red onion for crunch. Made a few hours in advance and just pulled out of the 'fridge 2 "
"Used 1# chicken & halved the remaining ingredients to make 3 patties. Skipped the lemongrass -- my daughter dislikes it -- and cooked them on a griddle in a tiny bit of grapeseed oil. They were terrific. Be careful not to overcook them, as the chicken dries out quickly. I used the Broccoli Slaw mix from Trader Joe's with great results: it main"
"Very good, very healthful -- especially if you skip the additional 2 Tbs olive oil at the end. I just used a bit of the liquid from the beans instead and it was plenty creamy. Next time I'll add a pinch of cumin and cayenne for a bit more flavor and heat. I skipped the parsley and didn't miss it. "
"Used 1 chicken, dried thyme, 1.5 lbs of baby bella mushrooms cut into large chunks -- so they wouldn't cook down to nothing -- but halved the sauce and there was still PLENTY. To thicken, I used a few Tbs of the cooking liquid, 2 Tbs flour and 1 Tbs butter. Leftovers would be great w some veggies and a puff pastry crust added to turn it into chick"
"Call it a "Granola Bar" if it makes you feel better about consuming it, but this is really just a chocolate chip-oatmeal cookie in bar form. It's a great recipe and really tasty, especially with the addition of the Rice Krispies, but it would definitely benefit from some healthful tweaks, like others have done, using whole wheat flour, less sugar,..."
"Bought a beautiful tied, $45, 6.5# roast at Whole Foods -- expensive but humanely raised & "humanely" slaughtered -- and should've cut off some of the fat, as there was a LOT when shredding the meat. I followed the recipe, ingredients-wise, but cooked the pork in my crock pot -- high for 1 hr, low for 7. Because the crock pot promotes so much liq"
"Made this using an 11" springform pan and made some modifications and it was terrific! I used a spice cake crust, about 1.5 cups of powdered sugar, 1.5 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. ginger, 1/8 tsp. cloves and maybe 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg and it was great. I baked it at 350 CONVECTION for about 50 minutes and made it one day in advance. The next""
"I used this recipe as a guide and made modifications, but still rated it 5 stars because I can't stand it when people modify a recipe then goof up the ratings. That said, if modifications annoy you, please stop reading. I cooked a scant half pound of bacon, set it aside and saved & measured the bacon grease then used equal amounts of flour (3 Tb""
"Made some modifications to make this more healthful and we still loved it! I used ground 93/7 turkey, added half a green bell pepper, used 1% cottage cheese (used about 20 oz., with extra oregano & basil stirred in) and very little additional parm & mozz. I finished the layering so sauce was on top and didn't end up using all of the noodles, then ..."
"This was fabulous, even with a few slight modifications. I used sweet Italian chicken sausage which I browned & removed from the pan. I doubled up on nearly all of the veggies, using 2 small potatoes [diced fairly small], 2 carrots, 1 lg. green bell pepper and added a diced celery stalk. I sauteed everything, added a tsp. or so of red pepper flak""
