Pasta Hot! Hot! Hot!

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
The basics of this dish are very good, however it came out kind of bland to me: I used minced garlic because I had it on hand, and sauteed it in the olive oil with the red pepper and poured it over my pasta. I'll admit I didn't have spaghetti so I used an elbow noodle, and cooked way too much so I doubled the sauce - and I could taste it but it was, again, bland. So I added a can of cooked chicken, plenty of parmesan, and quite a bit of lemon juice (after a favorite lemon pepper pasta dish). Delicious! And easy - just enough heat with the recommended amount of red pepper!

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Delicious! I added garlic and feta cheese and didn't have green chiles. I also used fresh spinach. Next time I will add another can of artichoke hearts and more spinach.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Not a huge fan of beans, but this is great! And healthy! I did follow some of the other reviews and added 2 packets of taco seasoning and garbanzo beans. I had tomatoes on hand, so I used them instead of canned (took me about 2 1/2 to make it the consistency I like). I also skipped the onion due to personal preference. I planned on adding jalapeno for spice but decided to add sriracha (my weakness) instead, and it took quite a bit, to get it to my spicy level, but its good. I wish I had another avocado to add, and I did add 2/3 c lime juice and a little extra olive oil. Bringing it to a work potluck tomorrow, but I don't care if no one likes it, because I have no guilt eating this very healthy snack!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
So I made a steak for the first time ever today (I'm only 22, give me a break). I used Allrecipes to find a good steak recipe since I had no idea what to do, except that I was going to pan-fry it. This marinade came up on top of the ratings list. I used the hot sauce and extra garlic, and the only thing I changed was I used minced garlic instead of the garlic powder (didn't have powder), and used italian seasoning instead of the basil (once again didn't have basil). This turned out amazing! I can only imagine how much better it would've been if I was more experienced cooking steak! Definitely recommending this one to friends and family. Thanks for posting it!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Maybe I didn't do it right, but this didn't turn out at all like I hoped. The flavor was good, but I just couldn't get past the texture. Not like the chicken and dumplings I was expecting.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Delicious. I am particularly fond of the crisp part so I doubled that. And my apples had been previously frozen, so I think it would've been better if I had added more flour to the apples to soak up more of the juice.

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Good easy egg recipe, however not up to par with my favorite scrambled eggs (the kind you get in catered breakfasts). I used mayo with cracker pepper because it was what I had on hand, and had to add salt in the end. The "low heat" instruction isn't very specific. I used 3.5 on a 9 scale and would probably do at least 4.5 next time as it took forever! And I think the slower you cook it, the harder it is to tell when they are done. Better than just plain old scrambled eggs for sure though.

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Delicious, easy, and with so few ingredients. I was worried the cooking process would dry out the chicken some, but the tomatoes were more than enough to keep it delicious. And its very fresh and good for you as well. Will definitely make again.

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Very good and very easy. Made a more filling than I could stuff mushrooms with but probably due to different size mushrooms and what not. Thinking about trying the extra in a quesadilla. Would definitely make again!

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Delicious! And so easy. I've only tried it on toast so far, but I will try it on so many things! Makes regular old white bread taste like cinnamon bread. Yum!

Homestyle Potato Chips

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Not bad. Don't have a mandolin so my slices were uneven sizes, and I used red potatoes. Also found out my deep fryer was broken after the potatoes were prepped so I made them in a large pot on the stovetop. Just didn't taste spectacular to me though.

Apple Milkshake

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Tastes good. Needed one more scoop of ice cream for the consistency I like. Took me a minute to get past the texture as the apples don't completely blend. But good!

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Very easy, very good! I didn't have garlic powder, but used dried chopped garlic, and it was still delicious!

Creamy Mushroom Macaroni

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Very good! I added garlic and some diced red peppers I needed to get rid of. My only beef is that the cheese needed to be a little more creamy and a little less thick. But it was yummy!

Avocado Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
1 lime is too much lime juice, but it was tasty despite. I used serrano peppers instead of habaneros because I wasn't sure I could handle the habaneros, but the serranos weren't bad either.

Avocado-Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Delicious. Tasted like a mango-y margarita almost. A little salty, but once it soaked it up a little, it was amazing!
