Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
This was such a lovely preparation for my heirloom tomatoes - I think sometimes we forget how wonderufl simple can be when the ingredients are good.

Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I can't speak highly enough of this. What a nice change from mint jelly or rosemary! Everyone at the table loved it, even those who were not (previously) lamb fans. I did cut down the vinegar a bit per other reviewer's recommendations. This has already been requested for hunting season with venison, and I know that it will be a big hit.

Summer Squash and Onion Cheesy Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
With a very minor change this was great! Following another reviewer's suggestion, I sauteed the squash with the onion, and it was fantastic. I was a little concerned about the condensed milk, so I drizzled it lightly off of a spoon onto the top of the cheese layers. I'm not sure that I used quite the amount called for, but it added just the right touch of sweetness for our family. Thanks for another great summer garden recipe!

Hearty Creole Okra and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I made this without the sausage due to allergies. This is a wonderful side dish. Okra, onions, and corn were fresh from my garden! The tomatoes were also homegrown, I canned them whole a few weeks ago, and the fresh flavors were amazing. Thanks for the wonderful fresh recipe!

Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Thanks Sunny! I have cherry tomatoes growing out the wazoo this year and am always looking for new things to do with them. I used fresh basil and they were lovely. I also really like making these to put into salads - like pasta salad and such - a nice change of pace from regular tomatoes!

Clam Chowder Tart with potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
There is clearly a major time error in this recipe - it needs to cook for at least 40 minutes, maybe a little longer. It's basically a quiche, and that's a fairly constant baking time. The recipe does note that a toothpick should come out clean, so if it doesn't keep it in the oven a little longer. That being said, I did make 2 ingredient additions to this recipe. I added one diced celery stalk and 1 diced potato, because good clam chowder has to have both of those (in my opinion of course)! Without the potato I would not have felt satisfied by this dish, but with it, this was great! I used turkey bacon due to allergies as well. The man ate 2 large helpings, and asked when we were having this again. This was wonderful with a side salad, and relatively easy to throw together. This will definitely be in my weeknight meal rotation! I don't normally rate 5 stars when I feel a key ingredient was missing, but this was truly a great find - thanks again!

Lentil and Buckwheat Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I loved this and will definitely make it again. I had trouble finding buckwheat so I used bulghur wheat which is similar. Other than having to adjust the times slightly due to the wheat this recipe was fabulous. The only recommendation that I have is that the water/broth from cooking lentils/legumes can add to the unpleasant after-effects of eating them, so I used fresh vegetable broth instead. Thank you for this recipe - it will be a household standby!

Cheddary Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This is the recipe that cemented my relationship with Allrecipes. So many years later, I can't believe I haven't reviewed this one yet! I tend to make my own cream sauce these days instead of the canned condensed soups, but I STILL love this pot pie, and think that the pancake mix topping is genius!

Hot 'n' Spicy Buffalo Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Loved it! I made it as a cold chicken salad to use up some shredded chicken and it was just what I wanted for a nice light dinner. I'm looking forward to trying it again as a main meal salad not on a sandwich too. Thanks Celeste!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This is a standby side dish at my house, especially during the summer when my basil is growing! Tonight I tossed some chopped cherry tomatoes in after the pasta was cooking, and served it chilled with grilled chicken. It's versatile and a wonderfully different accompaniment (hot or cold) to grilled food in the summer or baked in the winter!

Pecan Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
We loved this. As a nice easy side dish, with a different spin, it went great with a simple grilled chicken breast and veggies. Next time, I will be more careful with roasting the pecans, since a few burned.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Such a simple, wonderful combination. I was lucky enough to have fresh pecans so I doubled the nuts, and cut the sugar a bit. This was fantastic on top of Clara's White Chocolate German Cake from this site.

Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
This was really great! I modified it to work in a crockpot - but hands down one of the best cacciatore's I've had in ages! Sauteed the veggies in butter and set aside. Added two chicken breasts, two thighs and two legs to the crock pot, added salt and pepper. Poured in the wine, added the sauteed veggies and italian spices (I had garden fresh basil oregano and rosemary) then topped with one drained can of tomatoes and one undrained can and a can of tomato sauce. I added the extra can of sauce because I needed a little more liquid for the crockpot - but I reserved (like it said i the recipe) the drained juice. And used that with flour to thicken at the very end. 4 hours at high, pulled the meat out and shredded off the bone added back in for another 1 hour on low. it was fabulous and I am thrilled I have so much leftover!

Blue Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I can't believe that I forgot to rate this one! I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I did add some blackberries and raspberries as well and my cranberries very exceptionally tart, so I used a little more sugar than called for.

Cuke Baguette

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
This was really nice! I whipped up some dillspread using greek yogurt, and garden fresh dill, thyme, oregano and bail with some cracked pepper and paprika. Homemade whole grain baguettes and cukes from the garden. I think this might be served for lunch today as well!

Moroccan Lamb with Shiraz Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
As soon as I saw this recipe I had to make it, but I didn't have lamb on hand. So I made it with chicken breasts. It was phenomenal. Watch out because the sauce is so sweet, you just need a dribble - I will make this again.
