Absolutely the Best Nacho Dip Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
I have made this recipe a number of times and am always asked to bring it to get togethers. Sometimes I use light mayo, cream cheese & sour cream and it's still good. Although it may sound strange, the cocktail sauce and cucumbers really work and add to the extremely fresh taste. I like to cut the veggies a day or two ahead of time and refrigerate in containers on paper towels. Seems to keep the dip from getting too watery.

Pasta Hot! Hot! Hot!

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
This is a regular dish at my house, but with a few additions to make it a balanced meal. When the pasta is almost done, I throw a bag of frozen broccoli and about 2 cups of thawed frozen pre-cooked shrimp with the tails removed. Drain, toss it all with the oil mixture and top with parm. Delicious and impressive enough for company... If they don't mind it hot!hot!hot!

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I really like this dish (I'm crazy about pasta and the rest of the ingredients), but my sister thought it was too rich and didn't finish her plate. It takes closer to 40 minutes for me to carmelize the onions.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
Oh wow, this turned out fantastic! I followed fellow reviewer, BEEZLYS, suggestions: marinating the meat in red wine, adding garlic and Worcestershire sauce, etc. I then served over egg noodles with fresh green beans on the side. My sister said it was the best meal I ever made!

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Who knew soybeans could be so delicious?! The flavor of this salad is out of this world and beautiful to boot! Like other reviewers, I used olive oil and balsamic vinegar and honey in place of the sugar because that's what I had. Also, I used 1 less tablespoon oil and 1 extra vinegar to lower the fat content a bit. I will be making this again and can't wait to take to picnics this summer!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
If I could, I would give this recipe 20 stars. So simple, tastes great and delivers a quite a punch! There will be many repeats of this delicious drink in my future.

Pennsylvania Greek Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
I lost my recipe from the Erie newspaper for greek sauce and came back to my trusted All Recipes. This is great. I used more tomato sauce b/c I only had a larger can, maybe around 12 oz. instead of 8 oz., added a bit more mustard, red pepper, and a squirt of ketchup. I simmered much longer so the additional liquid was used up and broke up the meat very fine using the "P Chef" "Mix & Chop" (my fav tool for ground beef). Served with Smith's hot dogs and used as a topping for baked steak fries. Delicious! Wish my waistline would allow me to eat like this everyday!

Summer Beer I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly & thought it was pretty good & refreshing, but not very flavorful. Next time I will add more lemonade or a couple scoops of powdered concentrate. Don't plan on driving after 1 or 2 of these. 8/19/09, made these again last night. Added 2 tablespoons bottled lemon juice which made this a 5 star recipe.

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Fantastic! I scaled the recipe by half, mixed the beans in with the salsa mixture like other reviewers and baked at 400 for one hour. Turned out great. Topped with a little shredded sharp cheddar and served with sour cream. With Spanish style microwave in the pouch rice, this tasty meal took vey little effort. Will be making again.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Amazing! The only thing I did differently was used a whole pint of red tomatoes instead of using half yellow. Also, I'm not sure how I forgot the balsamic vinegar, but I did. I will be sure to add next time, but it was still delicious without. Served with rice and green beans and it was a hit!

Key West Penne

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
The look on our faces when we took the first bite said it all. This recipe is completely off the hook. My only changes were 2 chopped garlic cloves added with the shrimp & scallops, I chopped the artichokes & sundried tomatoes and added fresh parsley at the end. I may not add this to my weeknight dinner rotation as the ingredients are expensive, but I will make again. My mouth is watering just thinking about it now.

Reuben-Pierogie Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
This was so yummy! I used potato and onion peirogies and an additional cup of sauerkraut, just because we like it so much. It is a great variation on my standard pierogie dinner.

El Grande Borezo Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
This was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly, but did scale it down for 1 chicken breast. Maybe that's why the sauce didn't carmelize. The only good thing I can say is that the diced onion smelled good while cooking.

The Best Bacon-Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I've made this dip twice in the last two weeks. The first time I used chive and onion cream cheese and green onions, per other reviewers suggestions. But I forgot the cheddar cheese! The second time I remebered the cheese but I think I prefer it witouth. Awesome recipe!

Fusion Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was different, not bad, actually it was good. I knew it would not be like my standard hummus recipe and I did find myself missing the garlic, lemon and tahini flavors. I may try this one again with some tweaks. Thanks for sharing Hannah.

Green and Bleu Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
I saved this recipe when SunnyByrd used to blog and it is one of the oldest recipes in my recipe box. I finally had the chance to make it and all I can say is DEEEE-lish-ous! I didn't change a thing other than doubling the recipe because I took it to a potluck at work. It was enjoyed by all and one of my coworkers said that "the lovely flavors of the salad danced over her tongue." The next time I make it, I will add a little more oil because the dressing didn't "cling" quite as well as I like. Other than that, fantastic! Great mix of sweet, tart, spicy, crunchy and creamy. A real winner! Thanks SunnyByrd!

Joanne's Super Hero Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This sandwich is excellent! I made no changes other than using sharp provolone cheese which is just personal preference. I made it about 24 hours ahead of time and it held up beautifully. Can't wait to have an occasion to make it again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Parma Wrapped Chicken with Mediterranean Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
We enjoyed this dish quite a bit. I thought I was all set to make it, but my thyme smelled a little musty so I subbed rosemary, but otherwise kept the recipe the same. My proscuitto slices were almost exactly the same size and my chicken breasts so I just laid them on top instead of wrapping. I quartered the potatoes, but they were still a little firm compared to the other veggies. Next time, I will take other reviewers' suggestions of putting only the taters in first, then adding the veggies & chicken. Next time I would also add baby carrots. All, in all though, this is an easy weeknight dinner and a great way to get a couple of servings of veggies in. Oh! I almost forgot, my sister and I were able to make 4 not 2 meals out of this. Thanks for sharing Betty!

Basil Strawberry Mango Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. But it is fitting that basil is the first word in this recipe's name; you can really taste it. I will make again, however I plan on using artificial sweetener to lower the calories.
