Just picked my recipe for next week continuing on my soup kick.. I plan on making Veggie Chili. Here is the recipe inspiration, but I already plan on making many modifications, especially to get the sodium level down.

Oooh, TJ, I saw the sweet potato shepherd's pie and bookmarked the recipe. DH LOVES shepherd's pie, and his eyes lit up when I showed him the site. Looking forward to your review.

Hi All!

I made a tomato bisque this week and I am THRILLED with how it turned out. Here is my blog, pics, and link to the recipe. I have found a way to incorporate it into a meal almost everyday because it is so versatile. Hope you guys try it out!

Like Tisha, I didn't sign up for the challenge because I worried I wouldn't be able to devote the time to it, but I just keep getting drawn back to this thread to see what wonderful ideas you all have come up with. Thank you for posting your successes that have led me to some terrific new recipes. I tried SkinnyTaste's Santa Fe Turkey Stuffed Peppers last night...keeeperrrrrr! Because I usually find recipes not spicy enough for me, I doubled the cumin, chopped onion, and minced garlic for VERY pleasing results. Leftovers for lunch today.

Tina, this sweet potato pie looks amazing! I can't wait for your review.
I'm already looking for my next recipe, too. And judging by everyone's review blogs, I think the first round went really well.

Yes. Or you can cook it next week if you like.
The idea is to post a recipe during the first week. Then you have until the end of the second week to make/review.

Are we posting new recipes next week, to cook the following week? I hope so, because my meals next week are not that healthy and are kind of disorganized because we have company in town...I can plan for the following week though, and get back on track then.

I made Nancy's Easy Tzatziki from Sparkrecipes and loved it! I subbed dried "It's a Dilly" from McCormick bc it was handy and I had all other ingredients. I ate tons of veggies this week bc I had the dip on hand plus it makes a great sandwich topper or marinade for chicken or pork. The yogurt tenderizes whatever meat you marinate in it.

YAY!! It looks like everyone is having fun trying new recipes! I must say that I've gotten a ton of new ideas after looking at some of your links and blogs.

I posted on Slenderella's page, but wanted to reiterate here. The idea is to post your recipe within the first week and your review before the end of the second. Doesn't have to be during the second week. No such thing as too early.

Today is meal planning and grocery store day for me, so I will be picking up my ingredients for my recipe. Everyone have a great weekend!

If you haven't had farro before I highly recommend it! It's my favorite grain of the moment (and that moment has lasted for probably the last 2 years!). The texture and taste are terrific. It's chewy and a bit nutty.

I made my dish tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it! My review is below:

I also blogged about my Pineapple Salsa Mahi Mahi with additional pictures. On the SparkRecipe I put one picture of two portions cooking in the pan, but in my blog I also have one of my plate, the portion that the nutritional information is for.

I think I'm too early. We were suppose to select a recipe by Jan 21 and then do it the next week, right? Well, for next week I'm doing a crispy oven-baked chicken recipe. Will let you know how it turns out.

That made me have to go look up farro. I had never heard of that before.

Did get my fresh ginger today. Should be trying the recipe tomorrow. Hope we like it. I hate to make a new recipe and then no one in the house likes it. I think that is why sometimes I am not willing to try something new. Basically I do try and minimize food waste.

I've been looking at this recipe for awhile but have yet to make it. I think that I'll give it a try now. I love farro, butternut squash and fresh herbs so I'm optimistic about much I'll like it. www.cleaneatingmag.com/Recipes/Recip

My family love fried burrito. I made mine with a whole wheat tortilla, fat free refried beans, a little hamburger, and a little cheese. I only ate one and it was taco size! Yeah for me! emoticon

I just made the Pineapple Salsa Mahi-Mahi. Yes, I went to the grocery store and bought the pineapple and salsa. I entered the recipe with a picture into SparkRecipes. I made 2 changes to the recipe on the Mahi-Mahi bag, so hope I'm not infringing on Publix Apron's copyright. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

It was really good. Hubby liked it, too, and he is hard to please with fish. Also, it was quick and easy. So, I call it a victory!!

Ooops! I didn't realize that the ingredient list I typed for the nutritional calculation would not show up. Does anyone know how to edit a recipe submitted??

I knew about this challenge, but didn't think I could find time, but wish I had taken a picture of the corn, potato, ham chowder I made for a potluck lunch today. Made it with 2% evaporated milk to make it rich and cut some calories and everyone said it was fabulous. really hit the spot on a cool Oregon winter day.
But since I do a lot of light cooking and am always reading cooking sites will try to post something tantalizing.
About the fresh ginger. Buy a small piece if you will only use it once in a while and freeze it. I grate mine frozen , don't even have to peel. It can really make a difference in dishes that call for it.
Since I hardly use salt, spices are what I use to make my food tasty and delicious.
Some of the recipes are sounding real good. .
Love the butternut squash. I make a couple of items with that and have to watch how much I eat.
Have fun.

Well, LOL, hubby is back from the grocery store and I can't make any of the recipes without going back!! You can tell I've been cooking so plain, partly because I don't like to spend calories on anything that doesn't fill me up and partly because we are usually feeding a 2 and a 5 year old who eat plain food better.

BUT, he got Kretschmer Toasted Wheat Bran instead of Wheat Germ. I'll keep it anyway. It is good stuff. He got light mayo instead of fat free. He got refrigerated marinara pasta sauce instead of refrigerated salsa.He forgot the fresh pineapple. He got Special K instead of Corn Flakes because it was on sale and he thought it was the same thing.

Alright, if I'm going to fix some recipes, I'm going to have to break down and go to the grocery store myself!!!

This saga will continue.....

My hubby does the grocery shopping. (partly because he likes junk food I won't buy and partly to help me out) I've asked him for the ingredients to 3 easy recipes: Crispiest Oven Fried Chicken, Oven Fries, and Pineapple Salsa Mahi Mahi. I'll make them all if he finds all the ingredients!! Will let you know. When he gets back from the store, I'll post the recipes of what I'm going to make.

Have a great and healthy day, everyone!!

In my house, it's what's reheat'n! Tonight was "must go" which means leftovers or that everything must go out of the refrigerator. The choices were whole wheat pasta, hamburgers or homemade chicken pot pie. Nothing special, but edible!

Yup most stores have it, and I've never had a problem with tearing off and buying just the amount I need. I shop at a big supermarket that is owned by Kroger. They come in big pieces like this, usually near stuff like the peppers and snap peas: us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/my123rf88
/m
y123rf881204/my123rf88120400065/1320R>5870-ginger-root.jpg
so I usually just take off one of those little "nubs" since I rarely need more than 2-3". It also freezes really well, and will keep in the fridge for at least a few weeks. It also smells delightful :)

But yup, to use, just peel and chop according to your recipe. A lot of recipes also use grated fresh ginger. Some people say peeling isn't even necessary but I prefer to peel mine. This is the spoon method I was talking about: www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9zgX
SdnPGI
I also will cut off any "open" ends before using it, as the exposed ginger (like where you tore it off at) will get a bit dry.

Never cooked with fresh ginger before. I assume the store has it and may take a look. But you say you can break some off in the store and they don't mind? Most produce they would mind. Then basically peel and shred for recipe?

SKIRNIR, does your store not have fresh ginger? It really does make all the difference w/ asian dishes. My regular store has it, and I just tear off the amount I need, instead of buying the whole big root. They sell it by the pound so there's no reason to buy the huge thing if you don't need it. I use a spoon turned over to peel it instead of struggling w/ the vegetable peeler. I bought about 3 inches the other week and it was under a dollar.

OMG, I didn't sign up for this challenge because of time limitations (I have oodles of Cooking Light issues with dog-eared pages of untried recipes), but now that I see some of the recipes you all have posted, I want to try some of your recommendations. The first one I'm printing out is the pasta with butternut sauce, spicy sausage, and baby spinach.

I make that recipe a lot, NUOVAELLE, and I really like it! One suggestion: I find the filling to be a bit on the bland side and lacking in salt. I often add a bit of garlic salt for a bit of flavor and to add a touch of saltiness.

I had homemade chicken pot pie for lunch. I made whole wheat spaghetti with sauce and cooked carrots for dinner. Hamburger crumbles were optional since I have one vegetarian in the family. A slice of low calorie bread rounded out the meal. Now for a cup of tea emoticon or coffee emoticon .

As I do not have fresh ginger, I will have to figure out the substitution using the jarred dried ginger. Hmmm, websites suggest dried ginger is not a good substitute, but they do have ginger in jars. May see how much such costs, or substitute dried.

I love Latino food and am going to take a stab at this Carne Guisada (Latin Beef Stew) recipe this weekend:

I've been making a Dominican Pollo Guisado recipe for a few years that I love so I'm really curious to see how one with beef turns out. I make my own seasoning blend so I already know I'll be modifying a few things from the original recipe. I also plan to make the suggested Aji Picante recipe to go along with it:

My BF will be out of town for work next week, and doesn't like Butternut Squash, so I am going to take the opportunity to make this Pasta with Sausage and Butternut Sauce on Wednesday night. I've been saving it ever since she posted it back in November. www.skinnytaste.com/2012/11/pasta-wi
th
-butternut-sauce-spicy.html


Looks like a good weeknight meal to me, and it will provide me with good leftovers for lunches. I already have a bag of cubed butternut squash (from the last time I made something w/ it and he hated it LOL) in the freezer, and 8oz of cavatappi noodles to use up. I"ll leave out the sage since large amounts of sage don't usually sit well with my stomach. I worked it out for 4 servings instead of 5, at just over 500 calories per serving.

BTW, if you are reproducing a recipe from a paper source, it's usually best to paraphrase and to cite the source, as most cookbook recipes are copywrited material. Another food board I'm on does cookbook challenges all the time, but they strictly prohibit anybody from copying from books word for word and remove posts that do.

Everyone is welcome to participate (or lurk!) and it's not necessary to take part every round. Join in when you can and sit it out when you can't!

Step 1 - Pick and post a recipe! (post by Monday 1/21)
This can be a recipe from an online source, a cook book, or a magazine. Post the link here or if you are reproducing it from a paper source, do that here. The general idea is to try something new. This round can be any recipe you like. In other rounds we may do categories (beef, soup, dessert, etc.) Here are some great websites to browse...

www.3fatchicks.com/diet-recipes/
www.skinnytaste.com/

Step 2 - Make recipe and EAT!! emoticon
My favorite step by far! This step will also include some prep work for your review. Ask your family (if applicable) what they thought of the recipe. Note any changes that you made or would make if you were to prepare the recipe again. Maybe even snap a pic of your delicious dish.

Step 3 - Review! (post by Monday 1/28)
On your sparkpeople blog, review your recipe. Include a link to your recipe for folks who aren't playing the game. Post the picture if you took one. Describe any changes you made or would make if you made it again. Was it a hit with the kids? Would the leftovers make a great lunch? Maybe it was a flop and you ended up throwing it all out. You get the gist. Come back to this thread and post a link to your blog so we all can "Ooooh and Aaaah" over your recipe! If the website that you got the recipe from has reviews, comment there so that even more folks can benefit from your awesomeness.


Let's have fun trying new recipes! If you have any questions, be sure to ask! You can ask here or sparkmail me.
