Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2001
I changed this recipe to be more like chicken and dumpling soup. I added to cans of soup and two cans of broth. I also added 1/2 cup of rice. I also made the recipe in only 1/2 an hour. I first started cooking the chicken. As the chicken cooked I mixed the soup ingredients together and started them boiling. When the chicken finished, I threw that in. I continued cooking the soup and started making the dumplings than finished off the recipe as she said. Guaranteed to take 1/2 an hour. Much better than 1 1/2 hours! This is going to be something I make often.

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2001
This is the best recipe. I mix the dough up in my food processor so it only takes a second. The dough is easy to roll out and makes tortillas that taste way better than the store. I loved that they were thicker so they didn't fall apart or rip like the store bought ones do. My husband loves them. I will never buy from the store again. It's much cheaper too!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2004
I love this recipe. I have used it so many times at gatherings with friends and family. Everyone loves it, especially women and kids. It's refreshing and different for a summer event. I've used all kinds of different fruit. I really like it with peaches, blueberries, strawberrries and apples. I don't put any sugar on the fruit, I just use a little raspberry jam to make it soupy. I also use a pizza cutter to cut the tortillas into chips, it works great. Thanks Ann for a wonderful recipe.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2004
I love this recipe. I have made these so many times. My husband and I love them, I've also made them for guests and they always like them too. The only thing I've ever changed is that I don't always have fresh lime on hand, so I've used 1/4 of a cup of bottled lime juice. It tastes just as good. Thanks Marissa, this is one of the best recipes I've ever found on this site.

Cheese Filled Triangles

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
My husband loves the Spinich Puffs from Dino's Gyros, so I thought I'd try my hand at making them. These were wonderful. I'm really puzzled by the people that said they were too bland. They tasted wonderful to us. We ate the whole batch between the two of us (4 left) with a Greek salad and homemade chicken gyros. If you like spinich puffs from Greek restaurants you will not be dissappointed by these. I was not successful in making triangles. Some directions on how to achieve that would be great. Mine were more like little hexagons, but they tasted great. I pretty much ended up cutting each sheet of phyllo in half with a pizza cutter. Then I spread each half with butter, put on a spoonful of filling and just kept rolling. The dough kept getting holes in it and falling apart, put they still tasted good. I will definitely make these again and I'm sure those last 4 will be gone before the end of the night.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2005
I love making and eating soup. I have made lots of different kinds of soup and this is truly the best. I made it because I had ham left over from a baby shower, but I will definitely make it again. I think you could easily make it without the ham. I think it would be good with bacon. The best part is the 5 tablespoons butter, 5 tablespoons flour, and 2 cups of milk. That mixture gets so creamy and wonderful. It really makes the soup out of this world. My grandma used to make me creamy potato soup like that when I was a kid. I'm so happy I found this recipe.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
My husband and I loved this recipe. We're big fans of calzones and we love spinach puffs at Greek restaurants, so I figured we'd like these. I made my own pizza dough and added 3 cloves of garlic. Then I put a jar of Ragu with some red wine on to simmer while they baked. They were an excellent dipped in red sauce. It was a great Sunday night meal that also fed my husband Monday and Tuesday while I was out.

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I didn't understand why some people didn't like this very much. I've made it a million times and we always love it. It's quick and easy and a great accompaniment to soup or stew. Then the last time I made it I actually had self-rising flour on hand (usually I make my own substitute). It was no where near as good when made with self-rising flour. I highly recommend using this substitue: 3 cups all purpose flour, 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt. I know it seems like a lot of baking powder, but if you like a buttery slightly salty bread you'll love it. I also always use butter on top, not margarine as the recipe states. Finally, if you have it on hand, dark beer makes this bread even better.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I have used this many times on steak and chicken. It's a great marinade if you're going to fondue the meat in oil.

Best Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I love this peanut sauce. It's so easy. I've used it many times as a sauce with fondue. It's awesome if you fondue a piece of chicken, a piece of onion, and a piece of brocolli, then dip it in this sauce. I have also made stir fry with chicken and various veggies including broccoli, then stirred this in as the sauce at the end. My husband and I love it. Then we eat it with rice and top it with chopped peanuts. Yum!

Chewy Oatmeal Cherry Toffee Crisps

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I loved this cookies with these changes. I used cherry flavored crasins since they were cheaper. I also perfer them without the toffee chips and with 1 cup pecans in their place.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This is great peanut brittle. The only time this didn't turn out for me was when I tried to double the recipe. I learned that from now on I'll just make multiple batches. It's also pretty quick to make. I made a batch to take to a friend's house while my husband walked the dog. Then I put it outside on our snowy steps to cool. It melted the snow and cooled the candy!

Almond Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I was really excited about the idea of this, however in order to get the candy to 300 degrees it burned on the bottom of the pan. I also managed to burn my finger with 300 degree candy while I tried to stop the burned part from flowing onto the pan. I think I'm done cooking for the night.

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
These turned out so great. I made them for a party on New Years Eve and everyone loved them. I didn't think they were that big of a pain to make. The adjustments that I made were using about 2 Tablespoons of Italian seasoning and using 1/2 a pound ground beef and 1/2 a pound Italian sausage. I also added some crushed red pepper. All of those things spiced it up nicely. I'll definitely make it again.

Potato Dumplings with Bacon and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
I made these dumplings tonight for dinner with pork cutlets and peas and pearl onions. The dumplings were by far the star of the meal. I didn't think they were that hard to make, especially with a food processor. Once the potato and egg were mixed together it was really soupy. I was afraid I would need another potato, but I just kept adding flour until it was like bread dough and they came out great. I used four good sized pieces of bacon and buzzed those in the food processor to cut them into small pieces. It made the food processor very greasy, but it was a lot faster than cutting with scissors and the pieces were nice and small. It's definitely not low fat or low cal, but they taste great and are easy to make. I think you could come up with a good soup based off of these dumplings. Maybe a corn chowder with bacon dumplings, yum... I'll have to experiment.

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I really wanted a monster cookie with butterscotch chips in it. I have found what I've been looking for! I made the dough one night, kept it in the fridge and then baked it the next day for guests. They turned out great. I used 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips. Next time I think I'll try some mini M&Ms in the mix. One thing to note, at least after being refridgerated the dough didn't spread out much so I could have put more on a sheet and bigger scoops of dough. I was also happy to find them still chewy the next day, just the way I like them.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
These muffins were so good. I had lots of rotting bananas and I needed something to do with them. I figured banana nut muffins would be good for breakfast. In classic All Recipes style, here are my changes. I used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup wheat flour. They tasted perfect that way. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. good cinnamon, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, and 1/2 cup walnuts. I will definitely make these again. I was very impressed that even when the muffins were hot they came out of the muffin papers perfectly. The muffins were moist and tasted good hot or cold. I did not use any coconut. I also baked at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. I can't wait to make them again!

Brie and Cranberry Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
I had to review this recipe. I've had it in my recipe book forever and I finally made it for bridal shower. I read some of the reviews and I think some people are not making this quite right. First I took the idea from the recipe to make it in a 9/13 inch pan. The refridgerator crescent rolls fit perfectly into the bottom of the pan. I cut the brie into little pieces and sprinkled it over the crust. Then I stirred up the cranberry sauce and dropped it in little dollops. I only used the 3/4 of a cup that was called for which is about 1/2 the can. Then topped with the pecans. It seems like other people smeared the jam all across it as you would pizza sauce. This really isn't like a pizza. It's little bar like appetizers. They are wonderful. Don't overdo the toppings. It was the first thing to be completely eaten at the shower. I will definitely be making it again. The picture posted is nothing like what I made. It looks like they used pizza crust. Mine was visually appealing and tasty. I think the people who complained about it running overloaded the pizza with too much jam. I just wanted to update this by saying I've made this for so many events over the years and always get requests for it. It is always the first thing to be eaten. Sometimes men need convincing to try it, but once they have you can't keep them away. Thanks for an excellent, easy recipe that I've used over and over.

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I just made these for brunch. Everyone loved them. They truly are just like hash browns at a restaurant. I cooked 8 russet potatoes from the "perfect potato" bag. They are the kind that are supposed to be the perfect size. I think that worked well because they cooked really evenly. I forgot to cook them the night before, so I cooked them and then put them in cold water to cool them off. Then peeled and grated. It worked very well. This does make a lot of hash browns. It made 2 batches in a very large pan. I didn't have any problems with the butter. They didn't burn. I used a large platter to turn the hash browns over. Works like a charm. Finally a secret to great hash browns instead of a gluey gray mess.

Cranberry Sauce with Raspberry Vinegar

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
This was a simple, quick recipe and the results were delicious. I was a little concerned about the vinegar. I didn't want it to taste like vinegar and it certainly can overwhelm a dish sometimes. I also discovered that I didn't have raspberry vinegar, so I used red wine vinegar. I used 1/4 of a cup since it wasn't the right kind and I didn't have a completely full bag of cranberries. I left out the orange zest since I don't like orange flavor in anything. The cinnamon stick was perfect! It made our Jan. 29th Fakesgiving a hit.
