Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
September 2008: Perfect! I've made these biscuits w/o making any changes to the recipe. The only change I have made is that I grate the cold butter. I do that for all of my bread/crust recipes because, this way, it is a lot less time consuming to get the right texture. These taste similar to the Pillsbury packaged "Country biscuits" but much, much better for you! We eat these about once a week at my house. ------------------------- Update: (December 2008) Because I make these so often I always keep buttermilk in the fridge, but this time I was out *Gasp*. I substituted homemade using vinegar as suggested by some reviewers... ew. This batch of "homemade buttermilk" biscuits were so gross. To get the 5 star flavor its imperative that you use real buttermilk!! No substitutions.

Chocolate Chess Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Eww, eww, eww. I had such high hopes for this pie. I followed the recipe exactly & it was inedible. The pie filling was so greasy & the pie would not set. You can even see the greasiness in the photos! Sad. If I attempt to make this again I will omit the 1/4c of melted butter. Just remembering my first bite makes me shudder. I feel a little out of place because everyone just raved about this pie in the reviews. I never leave baaad reviews, but I just needed to say something.

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I made this recipe, but tried to cut the fat and calories. I used cooking spray instead of the oil, I used fat free sour cream, fat free condensed mushroom soup and boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I served this dish over rice... oh my goodness. How delicious! This is a fantastic recipe. The dill & lemon juice just give the recipe a great tangy kick. This recipe was a huge success & is a new family favourite. Thanks!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
The dough wasn't really dough, it was more crumb like. It took a lot of manipulating to make a ball stay together. The cookies did come out beautifully at 8 minutes... soo good I didn't even care that the dough was a little difficult to work with! I had such high hopes thinking I'd finally found a fantastic sugar cookie recipe. Well, I just ate one and all I could taste was flour. I will probably try it again with less flour. Maybe 2 1/4 instead.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I've wanted to try this recipe for a long time, but when I saw the calorie content for 1 serving (over 1000 calories- are you kidding me!?) I said forget it. Well, I never forgot about this recipe & I thought I'd try it anyway because of the great reviews. I cut the butter down to 1/4 cup & used skinless, bonless chicken breasts.... for all of you who claim your chicken breasts are dry and gross- try this recipe next time you cook the breast. I reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes to ensure that they wouldn't turn out dry. It was so tender & moist! I believe I used a little too much curry though b/c our kitchen smelled like curry for 2 days after I made this lol. This was delicious & a few healthier changes made this dish worth eating.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I entered a local cookie bake-off (about 25 entries) using these cookies today. I am not a really a mint fan, but... apparently the judges were because I won! I used Cadbury Pep Mint Patties (chopped into small pieces) and I melted the chocolate in the microwave & then quickly spread it on the cookies. I did that simply for time because the Pep patties are THICK and would have taken forever to melt on their own. I baked the cookies for 8 minutes resulting in chewy almost brownie like cookies. On their own, the cookies are a little on the blah side, but with the peppermint "icing"- Fantastic! I can't count how many times I heard, "Mmm this tastes exactly like a girl guide cookie!!!". They're chewy, rich & an overall winner!

Crunchy Bagel Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I took mommymeggy's advice: I put the bagel chips in a ziplock bag, poured the melted butter in & did a little dance (shook the bag to distribute the butter lol)! It's so much easier & you do get a lot better "coverage". Thanks for the tip!

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Yum! I recieved this as a gift & it was delicious-- I did use tomato paste, I just made sure it was really well blended with the beef before adding water. The house smelled delicious & the soup was perfect for a chilly winter day! I will definitely make this for others as a gift... it's great!

Chicken and Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Many people made the comment that this recipe was a good base recipe- so I made a few changes and it was just yummy! The only changes I made were: I seasoned the flour with garlic powder, pepper & seasoning salt first and I sauted a chopped onion with the mushrooms. For ease I used chicken stock. I also added 1/4c fat free sour cream & a ton of pepper right before serving the dish. My family is full of picky eaters & they gobbled this up (after making sure there were no mushrooms visable on their plate!) The chicken was delicious & this recipe is a keeper!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
A very unique dish. I ended up using twice the amount of tomato sauce because the casserole did seem very dry. I used a spicy tomato sauce which gave it a delicious kick. I didn't use the cheese to avoid the unnecessary calories & I don't think it was missed! Does anyone else find it funny that almost every other dish on allrecipes.com has a ton of cheese in it? Once it came out of the oven, the casserole was just okay. I left it in the fridge overnight & then reheated some for lunch the following day. Like most tomato based dishes- this casserole is meant to sit & "blend"! The second day it was just fantastic. Take a chance on this recipe! You won't regret it.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
To me a traditional english scone is a little more flakey than this was. This had a funny texture more like a cake/cookie- I really think the odd texture came from the addition of extra orange juice. The mixture was very dry before adding the extra juice, so perhaps you could add extra butter instead to give it a better texture? It was good enough, but I wouldn't classify it as a scone & I certainly wouldn't serve it to royalty lol. I probably won't make this again

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I'm only rating the topping because I prepare my apples the way I would if I were making an apple pie. I was looking for a crisp apple topping similar to the one my mom made when I was a child & I've searched high and low trying dozens of recipes. Not using oats makes this into a sweet treat that compliments the tart apples perfectly- It has that classic apple crisp taste! I also never thought to cream the butter and sugars (1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 white) together FIRST and then add 1tsp cinnamon & flour. What a difference in the actual crumble. This will be my new go to recipe! Yum!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Surprisingly delicious! I didn't use the flour that was called for, but other than that I followed this recipe exactly. Very easy, quick & full of flavour. I was surprised at the sweetness of the balsamic reduction! Yummy. I'll be making this again.

Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I just finished making these cookies: YUM! I mixed the cookies using my food processor-- it took no time at all & no mess! I used 1 pkg of devils food cake & 1 pkg of chocolate fudge cake mix. I cooked the first batch at 350 for 10 minutes & they actually BURNED while sitting on the cookie sheet. So the next round: I turn the oven down to 325 & cooked for 8 minutes & let them sit for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet. This produced PERFECT, moist cookies! I used the whipped DH packaged vanilla frosting. YUM YUM YUM!

Salsa Biscuit Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
My sister-in-law (we're both addicted to allrecipes!) made this for her kids one evening when I was over & I had a bite of the chicken mixture... the inside had an excellent taste, but due to the high calorie content I'm giving it a lower grade. I read some of the other reviews & many people have said they give this to their kids as a "snack". Well in no way is something that is 1200 calories & 63g fat considered a snack- its a future full of diabetes and obesity! I would suggest using the mini-muffin pan idea that came from another reviewer & bring it to a potluck. There is nothing nutritional about this meal.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This is foolproof. lol its like "Chicken for Dummies". I usually add whatever I have on hand and stuff it in the cavity: either onions, celery, apples, fresh herbs... you get the idea. It's nearly impossible to mess this one up! :) Instead of just "arranging" the butter around the exterior of the chicken, I mixed some extra onion powder in with the butter and rubbed it under the skin. The skin will already crisp on its own without the additional butter. By rubbing the butter compound on the meat it produced a perfectly moist bird!

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
The sauce is just wonderful. To those of you who didn't like the sauce, you must have been using inexpensive port. It is usually very sweet because it is not aged. I used a tawny port which made a rich sauce that only enhanced the flavour of the meat. I really think the type of port you use will affect the taste- it really shouldn't take away from the beef (like many of you have suggested). I agree that filet mignon doesn't need this much fuss, so I used ny strip instead. I didn't really make any modifications other than using finely chopped shallots instead of white onion and I used 1/2c of Stilton instead of 3/4c- A little goes a long way!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
The best use for banana's! The only changes I made were, adding extra cinnamon to the batter, using oil instead of melted butter. For an extra little treat I added 1/4 peanut butter to the batter and I sprinkled a teaspoon of chocolate chips on top of each muffins. It melts nicely with crumb topping.. mmm. These are dangerously good. I can only make them on special occassions because my family loses all self control when these muffins are around. :D

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I've never been a fan of sloppy joes, but my family begged me to make some after watching a kids camp movie lol. I've only tried the canned version before, which I thought had a bad after taste, so I came here & found this one! Yummy! I used ground lean turkey breasts instead of beef, but kept all other ingredients the same. It's so good I'll consider adding this to the monthly rotation!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I cut the oil down to 1/2c and I added extra warm water to get a good consistency. The recipe made 12 cupcakes & 1 round cake pan (w/ bundt piece inserted)... I baked the cupcakes for 16 minutes & they were perfect! Just make sure you do not fill past the 1/2 way mark because this recipe nearly doubles in size once baked. I made the cupcakes in oversized Nut & Party cups (from Wilton) & we ate them warm- it tasted like a molton lava cake w/ the melted chocolate chips! Yummy!! And unlike most cakes, this gets better the day after. It was so moist & it reminded me of a chocolate muffin from Costco! Mmmm this is my new go-to recipe for chocolate cake.
