Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
Wow, these were just awesome! Hubby came home with a 4-pack of Portobellas from Costco, so I found this and made it in about 10 minutes, then left it to marinate for about 3 hours while we were out and about. I made it as listed (well, increased proportions a little because of the 4th 'shroom), except I used 1 tsp of bottled minced garlic instead of fresh. We ate ours on a bun with some avocado slices on top. So amazingly tasty! 5 stars alone for the taste, and another 5 for the ease of preparation! We will definitely be adding them to the rotation. Thanks for the recipe!

Healthier Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
This is great! I made exactly as described, except I did a half batch. I made it to draw a football shape on my brownies for the Super Bowl. It's exactly the right consistency. I may never buy decorator frosting again!!

Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
These are just wonderful! I omitted the butterscotch chips, since I didn't have them in the house. I used black cherry vanilla swirl frozen yogurt, but only needed about 1/2 of a 1 1/2 quart. My sandwiches aren't as tall as some, I guess. I just used the "soften" feature on my microwave which made the fro yo the perfect consistency (it was 20 seconds). I read the reviews, and then decided to just press the dough into a large square on a parchment-covered jellyroll pan. I used another sheet of parchment over the top of it to do the shaping, so the dough didn't stick to my fingers. I cooked it 11 minutes, and after a few minutes of cooling, just cut the giant square into 20 (more or less) equal pieces. It worked really well. Thanks for the recipe!!

Wendy's Quiche

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
It was great! I used my shortening crust, fresh broccoli which I'd cooked and drained well before chopping up, and a combo of mozzarella and "Mexican Blend" cheese. Broccoli & cheese were pretty much eyeballed. Good stuff, for sure! The kids ate it, but didn't love it.

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
This was good! Megan cleaned her plate, including the zucchini, and Owen ate all but the zucchini. I had to use Mexican mix cheese for the top since I was out of mozza, but it was darn good anyway.

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was pretty good. Bill and I liked it, the kids only ate it under duress. Sigh.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Wow, great! I made it as written, except that I omitted the white sugar based on all the reviews, and it was plenty sweet. I may even do 1/4 cup of brown sugar next time. And there will definitely be a next time! I used a smoked bacon from Trader Joe's, and my husband and I loved it. The kids... notsomuch. Oh well! They'll come around!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Did not do the meatballs. Used 1 small onion from the BPG, 3 cubes frozen TJs garlic, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato sauce, and 1 can diced tomatoes in sauce. Tried to about 2/3 the rest of the ingredients. Used ~2 T fresh CSA basil. I really, really love this sauce. :)

Scottish Bubbles and Squeak Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I thought this was really good! I tripled the recipe to take to a pot luck, and it was well-received. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I sauteed the onions in a little butter before mixing them into the rest. I did cook it differently, as suggested by another reviewer -- I spread the veggies into a 9 X 13 dish and topped them with the cheese, then cooked it at 375 for about 30 minutes (until it was warm and bubbly). The food was almost room temperature by the time I did this, though, since I'd made it an hour or so before I needed it to go in the oven. I will make this again, but will probably try it as the patties next time. I will add more Dijon, too -- it was there but not strong enough for my taste. Leftovers are apparently pretty good, since my husband just ate them for breakfast with lots of Tabasco and some sunny-side-up eggs! :)

Sugared Black Raspberry Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
These are wonderful! I actually made them pretty much as written, although I rolled them in turbinado sugar instead of regular. I used Trader Joe's seedless blackberry jam, and I put it into a small zip-top bag, cut off the corner, and piped the jam into the thumbprints. I must have made mine very small, 'cause 1 batch made 47 cookies. Yum, yum!

R and R Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This was pretty good. I used brown sugar instead of white, and used a package of Trader Joe's Frozen Organic Brown Rice. Otherwise I actually followed the recipe! My kids ate it (I sprinkled a little cinnamon-sugar on theirs and told them it was dessert :D) and my husband had seconds. He ate his with Tabasco. Rutabaga will never be my favorite thing, I think, but at least we tried it and now the CSA rutabaga that's been in my fridge for a few weeks is gone. :)

Top Shelf Margaritas on the Rocks

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
Wow. Yum! I made the recipe to take to a Cooking Light supper club tonight, and it's a very authentic-tasting margarita! It's a fair amount of work, juicing all the lemons & limes, but the final taste is worth it for sure. I rated the recipe a '4' because I used 1/2 the amount of tequila (using the whole amount would have been waaaaay too much, for me). I also omitted the egg white; although I'm not too squeamish about raw egg myself, I'm bringing it to serve to a group. Plus, I want to use the leftover sour mix to make lemonade for my kids. Thanks for the recipe!!

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
This was wonderful... I did as ROBINBRADY did, halving the whole recipe, using 1/2 tsp of baking powder and cooking for 25 minutes in an 8 X 8 pan. I omitted the nuts but sprinkled the top of the batter with 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. We had it warm for dessert and it was chocolately banana goodness!! The whole family loved it.

Banana Oat Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I have been making this for a few years now. I use an egg, applesauce instead of the butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1 tsp each of cinnamon and vanilla, 5 slices of bread, and usually only 2 chopped bananas. So, yes, I make some changes. :) But anyway, it's wonderful and obviously very easy to tailor to your liking. We had it last night for dessert while warm (the kiddos put a little choc. chip ice cream on top, and I drizzled it with a little Hershey's syrup), and I just had some cold. It's a great and easy way to have just a little something sweet and use up the stale bread ends and over-ripe bananas you have in the house!

Porcupine Meatballs III

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I've been making these for a few years now -- this recipe is one of my regulars. The whole family likes them! I add one tsp of Worcestershire and also a dollop of jarred garlic (mixing them into the meat). Also, I typically use brown instant rice and after browning the meatballs in a small amount of olive oil (no shortening), I pop 'em into my crockpot! About 2 hours or so on low and they're perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Wow, I actually followed the recipe pretty much exactly! The only variation I made was to only use 1/8 tsp cayenne (I'm a spice wimp) and to omit the olives since I'll be using this as sandwich filler. This was simple and fabulous, and I will make this many, many times. This may help some people: mine made 1 1/4 cups of hummus, which translates to 1 Weight Watchers point per 2 T serving (58 calories, 2.3 fiber, 1.7 fat, according to the ingredients I used). Thanks for this simple and tasty recipe!

Spaetzle I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I use 1 cup of milk instead of the water, and tend to let them sit for awhile, stirring occasionally, before cooking. I *love* these -- I usually serve them with (like tonight) my mom's Chicken Paprikash, or some type of stroganoff. My kids will eat them just with butter. :) Also, these freeze wonderfully -- just butter them up a bit, then put in a freezer zip-top bag. It's great when the hard work of getting the rubbery dough through the spaetzle press makes TWO meals instead of one!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
These are great! I did make changes... (I know the purists out there don't like ratings when there have been changes, but *really,* isn't that why we all come to allrecipes.com? ;) To see how the recipe can be tweaked?) I only made a half-batch, and I decreased the brown sugar to 3/4 cup and omitted the white sugar entirely. I used 1/2 cup of ground oatmeal in place of some flour, skipped the dissolving-baking-soda step, and omitted the nuts. I only used about 3/4 cup of mini chips instead of a whole cup since that's all I had. I made them slightly smaller (my half-batch made 28 cookies), refrigerated them while the oven preheated, and cooked them 12 minutes. I'm really happy with them! Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Wow. These are unbelievably good. I did what many did -- used 1 cup AP and 3/4 cup WW flour, 1/2 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar, increased bananas to 3, decreased oil to 1/4 cup, and used sour cream. It made 12 big muffins, and cooked 30 minutes in my stonewear muffin pan. My 3 year old and I made these today and it is only sheer January willpower that keeps me from eating them all while snarling and swatting at the other family members to keep them away. :) Thanks for a great recipe, Lois!
