Cajun Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I loved this -- such comfort food. It smelled a little odd to me while it was cooking and that made me nervous. First bite told me I had nothing to fear. I changed the proportions around on this a bit since I had more ground beef and no sausage. I also made a double batch and froze half for later. When cooking the frozen one, I added a bit of tomato juice to the top , covered it with tin foil and baked for an hour and it came out fabulous. If people are looking for some variety in their cook & freeze repertoire, add this one.

Tuscan Bean 'Goppel'

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I ate this two ways -- once as a warm dish like the recipe said and once as a cold salad for lunch. Both ways were great. I'm not a fan of cilantro so I substituted curly leaf parsley.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I did a head-to-head bakeoff between these muffins and "Best Ever Corn Muffins" from this site. These were the winner by far. Perfectly sweet, tender get grainy cornbread muffins.

Vanilla Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I loved this. It was a really nice change of pace from the typical vinaigrette. I served it on tossed on field greens with red onion, feta and dried cranberries. I thought I'd try it again with bitter greens, blue cheese and fresh pear slices. Make a very gourmet salad.

Tangy Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
This didn't quite set up as much as I'd like and I really wanted more horseradish flavor. If I make it again I'll double or triple the horseradish.

Pork Chops with Apples, Sweet Potatoes, and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Good flavors, but something went terribly awry with my chops and the texture was not good. Might try it again in the oven instead.

Tasty Spinach Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
These were great and so easy. I made them for appetizers along with the "Bacon and Tomato Cups" recipe from this site. Nice combination.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I don't really like pecan pie, but this smelled so damned good that I had to try it. Wow! Delicious! The chooclate chips make this fudgy layer that is way good.

Mashed Potato Timbales

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I love rosemary so I loved these potatoes. I did, as the other reviewer suggested, make these ahead and froze them. This works just fine, but it's important to note that they won't hold their cute shape while reheating. Still, I really like putting them into my Bento lunches.

Cheesy Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Two stars because there's nothing technically wrong with the recipe. It cooked as promised. No stars for taste and I should have known better. I keep trying these "easy" meals that use soup for flavor and keep not liking the bland, salty results. Know your preferences before trying this recipe.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
These are my favorite granola bars on all of allrecipes. They're versatile and delicious. The key is the mix of rice cereal in with the oats -- lightens everything up to make it easy to eat.

I'd prefer a slightly thicker soup but the flavor was great.

Green Bean and Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I love this. By mid-summer I was tired of traditional potato salads and this really hit the spot.

Watermelon Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
My guests and I really enjoyed this. Next time I'll put even more watermelon and maybe use a sparkling wine. But the recipe is delicious as is.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I really enjoyed these. I made them with the Tasty Spinach Treats from this site and they made an attractive platter of appetizers.

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I didn't have any nuts (for once) and I was hoarding my chocolate chips so I subbed in chopped dates. They're a little drier than I usually take my quickbreads, but it has a really nice crunchy crust which is tough to get and tasty.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Not as bad as the reviewers might make you think. It definitely needs some presentation help -- sliced lemons and fresh parsley? It's not a pretty platter of chicken...

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I threw away my other stroganoff recipe after I tried this. Hands down the best I've ever made.

Berry Creme Parfaits

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
This was always a special treat in our house growing up, and here it is made with milk instead of heavy cream! Thank you!

Cranberry Gelatin Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
This is almost identical to my grandmother's recipe. We top it with cream cheese whipped into sour cream. You can use different gelatin flavors if you like. It's much prettier made in molds.
