Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
WONDERFUL! I tweeked it along with "Ultimate Irresitable Granola" Both are fab! I used the "Splenda" br. sugar - 1/4 cup - and 1 cup honey. Also cut back 1/2cup on the wheat germ and oat bran for 1 cup flax seed that I ground. Instead of sunflowers seeds I used pumpkin seeds. This is so healthy - just got to remember all the carbs. and calories! :(

Juicy Grilled Corn On The Cob

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I'm anxious to try this again to see if it really is that good or if I just had some really good corn??!! This totally surprised me - and I didn't grill them - I wrapped them in wax paper and microwaved them. They were great - and I will definitely do it again!

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I thought this was very good - especially beings I'm not a big cole slaw fan. I will definatly try the "healthy" version with half broccoli slaw next time. I wanted to use this on top of burgers or BBQ chicken sandwiches so I tried it out last night to see if we liked it before putting it on a sandwich and ruining the meal. I made it with "Mahogany Chicken Wings" & "Juicy Corn on the Cob" and the whole meal was a hit. Next time I will try it on the burgers since I now know its good! Thanks!!

Honey-Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I really like this dressing for salads. I did use yougert to replace half the mayo (to cut some calories) and cider vinegar. Surprisingly it needed a bit of a kick for me so I added a little lemon juice. I think next time I will cut back on the oil a bit - again - for calorie sake. Now for dipping chicken...you must try "Honey Mustard Dressing II" -unbelievable!! But this is more what I like for salads. THANKS!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
My grandkids LOVED these!! I used devils food cake mix with white buttercream frosting. I thought they were good - a bit rich for me - and not being a cookie dough lover - I still liked them! My mom always said cookie dough would give you worms :) Aren't we supposed to believe everything our mothers tell us!!? Thanks for the recipe - I'm sure I'll be asked to make them again!

Gooey Chip Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Simplicity at it's best!! I didn't do the salt/vanilla thing - made it almost exactly as stated with the exception of throwing some minature marshmellows on top. They were a hit at my (bring a treat) grandsons B.Day party. Thanks!! Will remember this for the next quick fix occasion.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
First time I've ever made stuffed peppers. I used red and green - we liked the red the best. I used br. rice - extra worchestershire and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. Instead of tomato soup I used tomato paste and diluted it a bit with water and added it to the left over filling and poured it over and around the peppers. Also mixed cheese into the beef mixture and topped them with cheese towards the end of baking time. They were wonderful and plan to use this recipe again!! Thanks

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This is EXCELENT!!! I made it last night as the recipe stated for the ingredients part - although I made extra sauce & fewer sesame seeds. The sweetness was perfect - I usually think the resturants make it a bit too sweet - loved this - and sooo easy! Now for what I did different---I used two pans - cooked the chicken in one and saute'd the veggies in the other with a bit of soy sauce. None of this setting one aside while cooking the other -yada-yada stuff - much simpler using two pans. For veggies I used onion - broccoli - red pepper & carotts. Served it all on brown rice. Great - easy & healthy meal. I can't waite for leftovers!! Thanks Amber - you rock!

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
After a lot of research on this I just used a 1.75 Leader bottle of vodka and used 18 Grade A Madagascar beans in about 4 cups. 7 Madagascar beans (Grade A) and 10 Tahitian grade B beans in the other 4 cups. I had already ordered my beans on line before doing extra research. According to the experts(?) you should use Grade "B Extract" type beans for making vanilla. Be sure to scrape the seeds out of the beans & add to the vodka. I have ordered more Grade B Madascar beans and plan to make more with those. I'll see if I can tell a difference and add to my comments at Christmas. This is fun - I got cute bottles and corks from WalMart - $1.00 each. Remember that dark bottles are what vanilla come in-BUT - they sit on shelves for a long time at the store - most people put their vanilla in a dark cabinet - so I didn't worry about that and purchased clear cute bottles (4 oz.) - I'll just tell them to store it in a dark place. I think they will look great with a vanilla bean inside and they can add more vodka to it to replenish! I ordered from "Vanilla Products USA" rather than fighting with bidding. Have fun - its a great project and I'm sure I will have lots of happy friends - family & co-workers! The more beans you order - the cheaper they are! After 6 days-the smell & color is incredible! Use good beans and you won't need more that 4 (5 max.) per cup!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Simple and yummy - I skinned my chicken threw in the sauce mix (I doubled it - won't next time) and flipped the chicken twice during the cooking. I didn't use sesame oil - only because I have never had a recipe calling for it before and a bottle was around $8.00. I had tons of flavor and will make again someday. I also made brown rice - and saute'd zucchini and onions. Great meal. Thanks Kathy!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
YUM!! I'm not into hot food - so was happy to find this recipe. Made them exactly as stated. I used 5 lbs. of wings so I doubled the sauce. This gave me extra to drizzle on top of some brown rice. I also made "Mom's Cole Slaw" (next time I will try the healthy version) - "Juicy Grilled Corn on the Cob" (which by the way is great) and some breadsticks It was a ALLRECIPIES.COM night!!! I LOVE allrecipies and I'm very thankful to all the people that share!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This has always been one of my favorites though I make it seldom - it makes me eat too much bread!!

Hot Buffalo Chicken, Bacon, and Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I changed a few things according to what I had on hand like: turkey - bacon bits - motz. cheddar and blue cheese & sliced bread. I put butter on both pieces of bread and grilled the sandwich on the stove top. Next time I'll put a little extra sauce on both pieces of bread as I felt it was too dry with the amount I put on & try to have all the ingreds. on hand to make it according to the recipe - but we liked it the cheasy way I made it also - which left me the desire to make it correctly!! Thanks for a new quick meal idea!!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
I didn't use the corn or bell peppers but I did use a can of tomatoes with chilies. Pretty much the rest stayed the same as directed but you certainly can mix things up a bit and their sure to turn out great. They freeze wonderfully also.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I baked the seeds for 20 mins. without the sauce then mixed it in. Also did half butter - half canola oil and doubled the other ingreds along with a bit of garlic powder. It was just enough for 2 1/4 cups seeds. The BEST seeds I've made yet!! CHANGE to a new update. 4x's the recipe - 1/3 butter to 2/3 olive oil - seasoned salt in place of reg. Bake 1 hr. + 10 min. - stirring every 10 min. PERFECT!!!! Thanks for all the reviews to make this yummy!!

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
We loved this - I did microwave the squash for 4 - 5 mins. before filling it - then I threw a bunch of seasonings into some cooked turkey burger to make it taste like sausage - sauteed some onion and garlic - poured some of the br. sugar/butter over top everything before putting it in the oven. Will be delighted to make again!!

Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
My usual Pumpkin Pie is my mom's recipe which is very simular to this one BUT I just tried your topping on one of the two pies I made for a gathering and loved it - I think tradition has just been changed up a bit!! Thanks

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Liked this a lot - just a tad hot for our tastebuds. I'll probably add a bit more honey & Br. sugar next time---its that sweet tooth of mine! I saute'd some broccoli and a pepper to add a few more veggies - served over brown rice.

Black-Eyed Pea Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Didn't have all the right ingreds. so I did what I could. Instead of black-eyed peas I used black beans - used Rotel instead of the sun-dried tomatoes and skipped the feta accidentally so I threw on some Parmesan. I also sauteed up a few cut up chicken breasts and threw in some brown rice. I thank you for the general idea - the dressing was fab. and we LOVED the salad I ended up with. I was going between this recipe and a salad I just had at The Cheesecake Factory. I think it ended up just as good! Totally appreciative!!

Baked Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I have never been a spaghetti fan - but my husband is - so I though I'd make this and freeze portions for his work lunches. We also had it for dinner - I LOVED IT!! Oh yes - I did make a few additions from other reviews. I added extra beef - a can of diced tom. with gr. chilies - Italian seasoning - crushed red pepper - cayenne pepper and salt to taste. I also did 1 cup cheddar and 1 cup motz. along with fresh mushrooms (had some that needed to be used). As for layering - I put the meat sauce on the bottom - spaghetti - 1/2 the cheese - more meat sauce and topped with some Parmesan and the rest of the cheese. FABOULOUS - and I'm not a casserole kinda gal!
