Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
I followed the recipe to a T and it is just right. A nice mix of tart and sweet and the color is beautiful. This is THE curd recipe to follow, especially since it doesn't require extra setting time. So perfect that I featured it on my cooking blog, GoodDinnerMom.com

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
I increased the servings to 8 so this took only about 5 extra minutes for the increase of ingredients. Yes, you HAVE to heat up the broth if you want it to take the time indicated. I heated mine to almost boiling and then kept it nice an hot scooping out the 1/2 cup as needed. We had this as the main dish and the only change I made was substituting flat leaf parsley for the chives because that's what I had. AND I did a dry sauté of the mushrooms which is super fast, healthier and easy. Thanks Myleen. This was delicious and I will be making it again with pictures and featuring on my blog soon. It was that good!

Indian Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
This was a great recipe. I wanted more sauce so I made the following changes: Doubled everything EXCEPT cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and bay leaves. Since I doubled the onions, I sliced one and sauted until slightly browned. The other onion I diced into the paste. I used 3 chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs. For the tomatoes, I crushed one can of whole tomatoes and then added a can of diced tomatoes. I have a Rometopf clay oven, so after everything was sauted together, I poured the recipe into the clay oven and cooked 45 minutes covered, and 45 minutes uncovered. This dish would be fantastic with shrimp, as well. Just don't add shrimp until last bit to avoid them being rubbery. Great recipe, this is a keeper!

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
Our new favorite burger! I made the Cajun Spice Mix by Bobbie Jean on allrecipes for this recipe. Yummmm! Broiled burgers in oven. The only change I made is, I probably added a bit more worcestershire. Try this!

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
LOVE this recipe exactly as written. I just whipped this up for the Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo on allrecipes. I was in a hurry and forgot to read the other reviews so was worried mixture was going to be oversalty. It is perfect! But as others mentioned, this is great to be able to control how much salt you want. Every ingredient is a perfect compliment to the others. Thanks for sharing!

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This is a new regular in our house! Easy, colorful and full of flavor. I took the advice of others and only used 1/4 cup olive oil. I did not want to try and push my tomatoes through a sieve, so I did chop them into a sieve and kind of raked the seeds and juice down through the sieve. Next time I will just cut them, squeeze out the seeds and cook. Try this yummy, rustic dish! Thanks for sharing Pooche!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
These were easy and delicious. I made my first batch without refrigerating the dough and the remaining after dough had been in refrigerator for at least 1 1/2 hours. No difference. They never were "fat". In my opinion, the allrecipes recipe for Best Chocolate Chip Cookies submitted by Dora yields a much better tasting cookie.

Turkey Sliders

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
I followed this as written except made full size patties. The burgers were super tender and juicy so I like the pan frying with the white wine, though on the grill might be a bit healthier. Now, here is why this recipe received less than 5 stars. The goat cheese is quite prevalent and I felt overpowered the burgers. I AM a goat cheese lover, but it was just too strong. My husband isn't a huge fan of goat cheese so he didn't care for them. This is a great recipe otherwise, and next time I think I'll just omit the cheese or substitute. By the way, a HUGE pet peeve of mine is when someone makes a big change to the recipe and then gives it a low rating. (i.e. "I substituted brie." Well, of course it would taste bad, yuck!) Try this recipe and unless you love the strong goat cheese flavor, either cut it back, switch it out or omit it. :)

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
This was easy, impressive and delicious! I used one sweet potato in place of the 2 potatoes and the texture was perfect. I think 2 potatoes would have been too much. Also, I forgot the red and green peppers but it was amazing without them. Thank you, this is on the list for a family regular! Good enough for company fare.

Melon 'n' Grape Medley

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This is fabulous! I've made this twice in the last two weeks and everyone loves, loves, loves the flavor! It is so easy (followed exactly) and gives any menu a fresh wow! appeal. Thank you! Also, I didn't have time to make the melon balls and just cut up the melons. Still looked great!

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
This was excellent with a few changes. I added some chopped green pepper and minced garlic to the saute mixture. Increased the eggs to 6, plus added some dry mustard and used sharp cheddar. I have a similar recipe that calls for the casserole to cook at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. This seeemed to work well so the top didn't get too brown and it was done to perfection all the way through. By the way, your house will smell AMAZING while this is cooking!

Mediterranean Crescent Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I made these exactly as the recipes states and they were little more than pigs in a blanket as far as the taste, really (and much more work!) We dipped them in pizza sauce. They were not bad tasting, but nothing special.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Delicious!!!! Loved it even though my food processer also couldn't get it quite smooth....I'll have to get the imulsion blender as mentioned in previous reviews. I agree it is hardy enough for a meal on it's own also. Thanks!

Fantastic Mexican Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was a huge hit! I made half just as the recipe says since kids were going to be eating some of this, and half with the changes that senoritak made with the red/yellow/green peppers and sliced jalapenos. All the grown ups LOVED the jalapeno side and gobbled it up! I didn't add alot of the red/yellow/green peppers this time. Next time I will cover it in jalapenos (which are not hot at all if you don't add the seeds). Very pretty presentation as well.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Yahoo! I've been looking for an alternative to lima beans and ham for my leftover ham bone and this is it! Delicious, nutritious and very easy to make. I hardly changed a thing. I just added a couple of carrots and used chicken broth since that's what I had. Like other reviewers I also added a bay leaf and one whole garlic clove. The broth in this soup was wonderful. Very filling and perfect for a cold winter's night to warm the family. Thanks for a great recipe.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
PERFECT roast! I followed it to the letter and it was THE most tender meat we have ever eaten. Will make again and again and I've already emailed the recipe to my mom and plan on letting all my cooking friends know that this is the ONLY way to cook an eye-of-round roast. Thank you for sharing! :)

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Delicious!!! I made just a few modifications because of items I had on hand. The only change I made is I added leftover chicken that I had (made with the marinade recipe for Grecian Pork Tenderloin on this site). Since the chicken had marinated in lime and oregano, I skipped the dill and added just a teaspoon of lemon juice instead of what the recipe called for. I also made this a little thicker with extra flour and we ate it with some brown rice. This is a new favorite and even my husband who is not a huge mushroom fan LOVED it! I will make the soup as is for my recipe exchange group this month. Thanks for sharing a fantastic comforting soup.

Shrimp Marinaders

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This was easy and delicious. Like another reviewer, I left the onions in slices and removed them before serving. I did also add green onions and the juice of one lemon. Served over ice with cocktail sauce. (Also, I forgot and bought shrimp with tails ON...worked great)

Magpie's Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
Easy, fresh and delicious. I had to use regular cucumbers as that's what I had and I did add just 1 tsp. fresh minced onion. Very nice with the mint. Thank you.
