"If you replace the tomatoes and chicken broth with no salt added/lower sodium products, you can reduce the sodium by about 500grams per serving... I'm sure there are other areas you could reduce too, but those are the easiest."

"I also use a can of baked beans. The beans flavor the chicken, and the chicken the beans, so you have a side dish ready to go with your chicken! I use a stand, but the bean can works too. I wrap my chicken in foil for the first part of the grilling to keep the skin from blackening."

"My family raved over these taco's. I loved the ease of the recipe. I did use a soft flour torilla though the kicker was the slaw mix. My changes were: 1 pack of broccoli slaw, only 1/2 package of taco seasoning and a couple of tablespoons of milk. And like I said the soft shell which I warmed in a ungreased skillet for about 15 seconds per side. My husband ate like 5 of these and just kept saying how good they were. Even my picky eaters raved over them."

"I made these and they were surprisingly easy. It is slightly time consuming, but a great way to give a fresh candy gift. I recommend using peanut butter if using a milk or dark chocolate coating, however try the marshmallow cream with a little fruit preserve and coat it with a vanilla bark or white chocolate. It is a nice surprise! I too rely on ratings before I prepare recipes, and posting a reply but leaving the rating at a one spoon only lowers the average rating. Just my two cents."

Cupcake cones are a huge hit with kids, but baking inside the cone often results in a soggy cone, especiall if not served the same day it is baked. This recipe eliminates the soggy cone syndrome. I highly recommend using this method... Mine turned out wonderfully.

Not a bad dish, but definitely needs some extra seasoning...and not with salt, the sodium is already high. A nice addition would be with some fresh herbs...

Big hit in the office! Very easy too. Prepared it before work and served it warm. I started with whole pecans, toasted them, then chopped them. Thanks to other reviews, I just concocted my own icing to where I thought it was ready. I highly recommend this for a quick, easy treat.

A sure fire favorite! This is a very easy, few ingredient recipe. It is a wonderful breakfast staple. The last time I baked this, I poured all of the batter into the baking dish, topped with the cinnamon/sugar, then swirled with a knife - verses layering. It turned out well and I found it was a little easier than layering because the batter is thick. Either way, it's a great cake!

Crunchy Ranch Tuna Pasta

Rating:
I was looking for a quick recipe and I had all of these ingredients on hand. It was very easy to complete, and I made these additions: 2 cups of chopped broccoli and I did as others posted - right after adding the ranch and sour cream, I placed the pasta in an 8" dish and baked it at 350 for about 5 minutes - long enough to crisp the onions and thicken the sauce. Everyone enjoyed the dish, and my picky pasta eater even went back for seconds. My husband said the only thing he would suggest was backing down on the ranch a little - but it could have been the brand I used... I would recommend.
