Spanish-Style Quinoa

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
My sister and I really enjoy this recipe. The only thing I do differently is add less liquid as the first time around it was a little too mushy and we add more spices. This recipe is a keeper and will be making many times this new year.

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
These cookies were a hit! They turned out great and this was my first time ever making snickerdoodles. I didn't have any cream of tartar so I used baking powder instead. I also used the butter flavored shortening which I think added a nice flavor. My sister raved about how good they were and it's hard to get a compliment out of her. :)

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
The dogs loved them. I did add more peanut butter than the recipe called for. I also used beef broth and some bacon fat to make it extra tasty. I recommend this recipe to all pet parents who want to do something special for their canine friends.

Spinach Dip I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This recipe is great, I did alter it some but only to my personal tastes. I used the Knorr brand vegetable soup mix, added about 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, 6 ounces of chopped water chestnuts, and 3 green onions sliced thin. It was a hit at my work potluck and they are now asking that it be my signature dish.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
*Updated rating 11/28* Made this recipe again but this time I stuck more to the original recipe as it is presented here. Changes I made - I mashed up three medium sized bananas and used 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of the 1 cup of white, and did not add the walnuts. This version was more true to the posted recipe and still turned out very good. I love how moist this bread is and everyone who tries it absolutely loves it. If you are looking for an easy recipe this one is it. Original Rating: Followed recipe with the exception of mashing my bananas (used 4),, and added 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg. It turned out super moist and yummy. This recipe is a keeper!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This is a great recipe. I used red bell pepper instead of green (what we had on hand) and jazzed it up to meet a more adult palate. We added red pepper flakes, paprika, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, and worceshtire. My fiancee' who doesn't like sloppy joes, just like this so thank you for posting this on allrecipes.

Pumpkin Cake Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Pumpkin roll turned out great! My cake did crack but I'm sure with a little practice I'll perfect it. The only thing I did differently was use pumpking pie spice and cinnamon then added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the batter.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Great recipe overall, I substituted 3/4 of the water with chicken stock and doubled the onion and garlic. I also added two bay leaves. I didn't add salt until the beans were pretty much cooked and even with that I used probably 1 teaspoon of salt as the chicken stock has salt in it as well. This recipe is a keeper and will no longer be buying refried beans in a can. This is a tasty alternative.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Great recipe! Next time I'm going to use more milk and flour as this was pretty meaty but the flavor is great. I added some pepper and herbs but otherwise kept to the recipe. Loved it!

Arrabbiata Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
This is a great sauce as is, I didn't have lemon juice or parsley so I just made do with what I did have. It is inexpensive and really tasty. It is pretty spicy so if you are not that into the heat, maybe cut it down to 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. I used this as the sauce for my seafood spaghetti and it was fantastic. I will be making this one again.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is a great base for an amazing sauce. I made my own changes such as using twice as much garlic, adding celery with the garlic and onions, as well as adding some red wine and beer into the red sauce. Once I felt it cooked down I used my hand blender to smooth it out then added the butter and half and half instead of heavy cream. To finsih it off I added shavings of parmigiano reggiano. This recipe is a keeper!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This is a keeper! I did make some changes out of necessity such as using pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon and cloves and added 8 oz of chocolate chips because they were there. The cookies turned out moist and flavorful. This will be the only recipe I use when I need to make oatmeal raisin cookies. Thank you Beth!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
The title says it all, this is the "perfect pumpkin pie". I made pumpkin pie last year using the pumpkin pie mix in a can and was very disappointed. This recipe however gave me hope and everyone who tried it loved it. This recipe is a keeper and I will be making it again and again years to come. The only additions I made to the recipe was that I added a tad bit more spices and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This was amazing and I couldn't beleive how moist and yummy it was. The only change I made was instead of 1 cup oil I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 melted butter and increased the ground ginger to a little under 1/2 teaspoon. My BF and I almost finished one loaf ourselves it was so good! This recipe is a keeper and I can't wait to make another batch! :)

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
This had to be one the best recipes for lasagna I've ever tried let alone made. The only changes I made to this was I added an additional clove of minced garlic, substituted 1 cup ricotta for cream cheese, and used baby portabellas as my mushroom of choice. I had my family over and they are meat lovers but opened their eyes with this recipe! I will make it a point to keep this one in my personal recipe stash.
