Spiced Chickpeas (Chole)

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Wow. Fantastic. Served this with Curried Coconut Chicken from this website and the two were fantastic together!! (Not to mention a side of white rice and rainbow sherbet for dessert!!) Had my friend and her family over and everyone loved it--she even asked me for the recipe! My husband thought it was perfect. This will definitely be made over and over again! Thanks for the amazing share!! Oh, I didn't use either of the chiles--I'm not a huge fan. I did use some red pepper (about 1/2 tspn) which was just the right amount of kick for me. Otherwise, followed the recipe and everything was delicious!

Picnic Potato Salad with No Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
I'm not a fan of potato salad, and my husband hates mayo, but this was amazing and mayo-free. I made it the night before a party we were bringing it to(boiled potatoes for 9 min), and mixed in everything except the chives, (feta) cheese, and walnuts--which I did when I brought it to the party I made it for. It was a hit! Will definitely keep this recipe!!

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Made this one for the first time after trying two other tomato sauce recipes (that didn't turn out as well as I thought they would). This one is the winner! I'm not sure if I had three pounds of tomatoes, nor am I sure if it's supposed to weight 3 lbs after seeding them, but I had a bunch of them from my crop share (along with fresh basil) and wanted to get rid of them. I also made it using a slow cooker on low and left it over night. It smells absolutely divine and I can't wait to have it for dinner tonight!!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Wow! I usually hate banana bread, but I LOVE this recipe! I follow SaraLady19's suggestions with the temp at 325 for 1 hr, 10 mins, and the Zucchini Bread IV crumble recipe. This results in the most delicious banana bread I could imagine. I've made this for my friends and neighbours, and they're always asking me for more! I'm only too happy to oblige because this recipe usually makes 2 big loaves and two mini loaves. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
My husband and I loved this. It tasted more like poundcake than bread, but it was still delicious. Next time I'll try to use fresh cranberries instead of dried cranberries (although I did soak them in hot water to try and plump them up a bit!). I think I may try to make them as muffins as well by using cake flour and by whipping the egg whites, folding it into the recipe, and then adding in the yolks. Can't wait to make this again!

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Delicious. I've never attempted to make a pork roast before, and I'm very glad I came across this recipe. Made this for my friends and hubby and everyone loved it! It turned out super moist and the flavours were extraordinary. I used apple cider vinegar and almost doubled the amount of herbs. I had a 2 lbs roast in the oven for 2 hours and 15 minutes before drizzling the glaze on (I didn't want to chance scraping off the herbs.) And I did that once every ten minutes for the last half hour. Anyway, it was perfect. I can't wait to make this for a larger family gathering! Thanks so much for sharing!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
I made this last night for my friends and hubby. Everyone loved it! The only changes I made were using premade stuffing bread (I think an herbed one), beef broth instead of turkey broth, sweet Italian pork sausage, and no liver. It really was amazing and I can't wait to make it again. I was worried that it would be too mushy, so I only used 1/2 cup of broth--this was a mistake (especially with the premade bread). I highly recommend this! Thanks for sharing!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
This recipe, with some minor changes mostly suggested by other reviewers, is fantastic! Some additional changes I made were: used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, used 2 stalks of celery thinly cut (since I didn't have onion), 1/2 tspn onion powder, 2 cups of chicken broth, and red bell pepper instead of green bell pepper. Also, I used 1/2 tbsp of chili powder since spicy food makes me queasy even though I love spicy food! Sadly, this was a little spicy for me, but I still loved it, as did my hubby! Will definitely make this again (with maybe a not as spicy version for myself). Thanks for sharing!

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
My husband loved this--and he's super picky about hot and sour soup! I kept everything the same, except I added half the red pepper--spicy food and I don't mix. It had enough kick for me, and I would definitely make this again (with a mild version for me and a hot version for my hubby!). Next time, I'll look for shiitake mushrooms instead of baby bella mushrooms. Glad I gave this a go!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Fantastic!! My husband and I devoured this, and we can't wait to have our leftovers! Took other reviewer's advice with baking the bottom crust for 5 minutes, we also sort of doubled everything for the sauce, except I was a half cup short of the chicken broth. It didn't matter as there was still a ton of sauce (enough for leftovers--maybe to use as gravy on mashed potatoes?) Anyway, I didn't add salt either (I figure people can always add salt if they want it--I find the broth to usually make up for it). Will make again!!! Many times!!!

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
I made this last night, and my hubby and I were going to originally give it 4 stars, but we had leftovers today and this is unbelievably delicious! The reason for the 4 stars was the pork was a little tougher than we would have liked it. Some changes I had made: we used beef broth instead of chicken (since it was what we had), and we didn't precook it, and I did double the sauce. It did stay in the crock pot for about 5 hours (so maybe that's why it was tough). But the leftovers--holy cow, five stars! The meat was so tender (literally falling apart), and it was so infused with the teriyaki, that I wish we had more! We served it with Spanish rice. Can't wait to make this one again for dinner with my family and in-laws! Next time I may add some mushrooms, carrots, and green onions as well!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
Wow. Absolutely delicious! As others suggested, I mixed the oil and curry for 5 minutes, then added in and mixed the onions for about 10 minutes. Once the chicken was done I added in freshly sliced tomatoes and some yellow squash and just one tablespoon of sugar. And I ended up using some garden vegetable pasta sauce instead of tomato sauce. Everything was so good, and the smell was so aromatic and soothing, it was a wonderful dining experience. There's a ton of sauce, and while we didn't have any Naan, I served it with rice and some bread. Will make this so many more times!! Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! Probably one of my AllRecipe favourites!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
An excellent find! I had bare ingredients--one yellow onion, no herbs, no wine. I quartered the recipe and used two beef cubes with two cups of water. As I was stirring in everything, I thought it needed something a little sweeter, so I first added a tablespoon of brown sugar, followed by another tablespoon after tasting it. Then I added a chicken cube since it had become too sweet, and I must say, this hit the spot. I also only had romano cheese, but this actually tasted pretty good. I will definitely make again, and probably keep my changes!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I really am amazed at how simple and delicious this was. I had my oven at 350° because I was also making a marinated baked pork chop and I didn't want to change the temp. So I put the broccoli in for 25 minutes at 350° and it turned out very tender and fantastic. I omitted adding the salt (since I figure people can always add salt if they want it) and the flavour was quite exquisite. Thanks for the recipe--will be using this one again!

Chef John's Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
This recipe was fantastic. I omitted using additional salt, though I did use salted butter. I also had beef stock paste (1 tspn per 8oz of water), and only used 2 tspns of it so it wouldn't be as salty. I probably should have only used 3 cups of water instead of 4, as it was more liquidy than I wanted, but I had already added all of the water, and ended up adding some extra flour to thicken it. Absolutely delicious. Used on chicken and baked fries. Will definitely make again!! Thanks!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Wow, this was surprisingly easy and it tasted delicious. I've never even attempted making something like this, but you really can't go wrong. I doubled the recipe for the sauce (minus doubling the extra sugar) and it was still yummy. I also forgot that I wanted to boil/simmer the sauce first to make it a little thicker when the pork chop was cooking for the first half hour and when I checked on it the sauce had run off the chop. But I simmered the second half of the sauce and it stayed pretty well on the pork chop after that. I served with roasted garlic lemon broccoli found on this site along with sarah's applesuace (also on this site). Everyone loved it and I'm making it again tomorrow. Thanks Kim. ;)

Microwave Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I had bought these 6 mini graham cracker pie crusts that I really wanted to use in an apple pie recipe, but my husband and I ended up using this recipe for the filler; what an amazingly delicious recipe this turned out to be! We did split the flour, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, and butter part in half (which we then mixed separately in a bowl, and would then use to coat the apple mix once we transferred it into the graham cracker crusts. We ended up nuking the initial apple mix for 6 minutes, then baked it in the mini crusts for 10 minutes at 350°F. SO GOOD. I had mine with a bit of caramel sauce, and my hubby had one mini pie with whipped cream, followed immediately by a second one with vanilla ice cream. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone! :) Thank you for sharing!
