Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
This chicken turned out delicious, however, it needed some tweeking so I only gave the original recipe four stars. Thanks to other reviewers I increased the recipe for the sauce quite a bit. This is necessary as having extra for a dipping sauce is a MUST! I did add a little water (tried olive oil too, but didn't work as well). It is too thick if you don't. You have to really watch this on the grill so the sauce doesn't get burnt. Also, as one reviewer suggested, I added some brown sugar just to the dipping sauce. This makes a huge difference also. I probably increased the sauce by 4xs, but I was cooking 8 breasts. We will definitely make it again. Thanks!

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
EVERYONE loved this!! From my picky husband and 4 year old son, to all my guests on Easter day. Have made it twice in the last week! Using advice from another reviewer, I didn't change a thing the first time and it was perfect. The second time, I tried it without the coconut. It is much better with the coconut IMHO! Also, 2 cups of bananas is 4 average-size bananas. This should help so you're not having to measure your bananas after they're mashed. I usually have a hard time not making my own little changes to a recipe...which is why I tried to change it the second time. Don't change a thing! This recipe is going to be my Christmas neighbor-gifts for next year! Very colorful and easy to make. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! P.S. Added on 8/24/07, I have now made this recipe MANY times and here are a few more helpful tips (hopefully). First, this recipe will fill three of the aluminum loaf pans that you can purchase for gift giving. Also, the last time I made this I added ALOT of pineapple. That is a big mistake! It makes the bread too gooey, so if you experiment, this is not the ingredient to increase. And one last thing. At least when I bake this, it takes around 55 minutes to be done, at least. My oven is right on, temperature wise, too. ENJOY!!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I made this the other day for a house warming party and it was absolutely FABULOUS!!!! Beautiful presentation/looks like it was much more work than it was. I used all the fruits called for in the recipe but substituted orange marmalade for the raspberry preserves. This gave the salsa a great hint of citrus plus just one more great bit of color with the orange. I too cut out the white sugar. It doesn't need it!! I added fuji apples at the end instead of the golden delicious. One suggestion I have when making the chips. Buy thin flour tortillas, not the thicker ones. After reading the reviews, here is how I made my chips. As suggested here, I put my tortilla shells on a plate in the sink, sprayed butter flavored pam on both sides, then sprinkled both sides with cinnamon sugar from a shaker. Then I cut the shells with a pizza cutter and baked for NO MORE than 9 minutes. They do get more crisp as they cool. Great recipe and I'll be making it again and again!!!

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.

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.

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
This was very easy....I had to make it in the crockpot. I also placed the meat with rub in the fridge overnight. Also cooked on top of two quartered onions. Huge party hit. Served with potato rolls and swiss cheese as suggested by another reviewer. We made the sauce that came with this recipe, plus offered Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy for options. We ALSO had some of my famous home-made cole slaw and mashed yukon garlic potatoes for those who weren't in the mood for a sandwich. Great meal!

Festive Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
Excellent salad! This will go with any meal. I took it to a luncheon and we all especially LOVED the dressing. The other ladies made chicken salad sandwiches and strawberry soup. Perfect combination if you're looking for a good menu! I did add some walnuts and they were very good as well. Great color and easy to make. Thanks!

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)

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This was a HUGE hit! Super easy and delicious! I followed other reviewers and made the following changes as well. I used a yellow cake mix, tossed apples with cinnamon and nutmeg, reduced watter to 1/2 cup plus 1 T vanilla, added 1/2 cup oatmeal, changed butter to 6T, baked 50 minutes. Topped with ice cream...YUMMY! Now I'm off to send the recipe to everyone who asked for it. Thanks!

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!

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!

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.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I too used frozen green beans for this recipe and it was a HUGE hit! Next time I'll use fresh green beans. I really can't imagine this being very tasty with canned beans, personally.

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.

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.

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! :)
