Tips for success:

- Look for examples. There are many made-over recipes online -- give them a try and see what you can learn from their example. (Both the Mayo Clinic and WebMD's Healthy Recipe Doctor have sample recipe break-downs.)

- Get a second opinion. When you're researching recipes on the Internet, read the user comments to see what other cooks may have done differently. Food blogs are also a good source of information and inspiration.

- Don't change too much. You don't have to dive in with an extreme makeover. If you're not happy with the results, you won't be able to pinpoint the problem areas.

- Take notes. Write down what you changed and how you liked the results. Jot down any suggestions you have for future cooking.

- Try again. Don't be discouraged if you don't achieve perfection the first (or second) time. Finding the ideal flavour and texture may take a little work.

Want to know how your changes translate to calories, fat, protein and fibre? Try a recipe analyzer tool like's Calorie Count or Spark Recipes' Recipe Calculator to find out the nutritional information.
