Fudge of the Irish

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2014
This was delicious! I followed the directions exactly, and it turned out perfectly. Yes, it is sweet, but that is to be expected from fudge. The flavor is delicious. To the reviewer who's fudge did not set, make sure you have a good candy thermometer, or it is difficult to know when it is done. I have been searching for Christmas candy recipes that don't involve nuts (due to a nut allergy) and this is going to be added to our new traditions. Thank you so much!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
FANTASTIC to make healthy nachos! I made these lentils for dinner one night. I placed them on a bed of tortilla chips, and added black beans and corn, then topped with shredded cheese. I baked them until the cheese melted. The kids were thrilled to have nachos for dinner. Topped with pico de gallo and sour cream. There was not a crumb left, and the kids each requested it again very soon. Even my husband ate it and had seconds. He is not usually fond of lentils, but he did enjoy this dinner! Thank you for the fabulous recipe!

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
I am the writer of this recipe, and am so glad that others have enjoyed it! I wanted to mention a few things. First, if you don't have dry ranch dressing mix, you can make your own. It makes a large amount, but is great for so many things (on meat, in soups, burritos, etc.) To make it, simply combine and store in an airtight container: 1/4 cup dried chives 1/4 cup dried parsley 1/4 cup dried dill weed 2 tablespoons garlic powder 2 tablespoons onion powder 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon ground black pepper Another variation my family enjoys is adding 1/2 cup-1 cup of Velveta Cheese. Also, for clarification, the 10 red potatoes are small-medium sized. If you buy the large ones, that are about the size of the palm of a hand, I would significantly cut back the number.

Broiled Parmesan-Lemon Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
This was incredible! I did not have sazon so I used Old Bay seasoning. I grilled the fish to start, then put the sauce on and broiled to completion. The sauce seemed just a tiny bit too thick to spread, so I added a bit of the lemon juice. it was very flavorful! Even my picky kids ate it, and I was not inclined to open the tartar sauce. This is definitely a recipe I will make again soon. Thanks so much!!

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
DELICIOUS, BUT A COUPLE MINOR CHANGES NEEDED! As written, the frosting is too runny to pipe a decent amount of frosting. You could spread it, but only a thin layer...not like the picture. This is the only reason I took away one star. (In my opinion, 5 stars should work exactly as written!) If the cream cheese and butter are softened, additional powdered sugar was needed to thicken the frosting, resulting in a too-sweet frosting. Also, For those that like a tall frosting, there was not enough. With my minor changes, it was PERFECT. 1) Do not soften the cream cheese or butter. Keep 'em cold, and beat them straight from the fridge. I have only tried this with my Kitchenaid, so I really don't know if it would work with a handmixer. 2) If you enjoy a lot of frosting, or the amount in the picture, you will need to double the frosting. As written, it is not enough to frost all the cupcakes. With those two revisions, these cupcakes are outstanding, delicious, and amazing!!! I love the orange with the pumpkin, and will be making these again! Thanks so much for the awesome recipe!

Cranberry Nut Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
AWESOME recipe! I make these for snacks for my kids (and hubby) to take to school. My daughter has a peanut allergy, and many store bought granola bars have peanut flour. So, I tried these, and we fell in love with the taste and simplicity! I make a double batch, individually cut and bag them, and stick them in the freezer. I do not use the parchment paper as a liner, but do use it to push them down firmly into the pan. I also have used a super-easy, no cook recipe on here for Sweetened Condensed milk, which works fabulously if you don't have it on hand. I only had old-fashioned oats, and did not miss the quick-cooking oats. I have tried all sorts of variations, such as chocolate chip and cinnamon raisin. Thanks for a fabulous recipe, that has become a staple in our house!

Caribbean Flank Steak with Coconut Rice

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Very tasty, different, a great combination of flavors, and simple as can be. I made it with brown rice, and liked the nutty texture it gave. Otherwise, I followed this recipe exactly. Even my kids enjoyed it. The only think I would suggest is doubling the rice and pineapple. I cut the meat in half (as we were only feeding 3), but I kept the rice the same (thinking I would have leftover). Surprisingly, I had exactly enough rice! So, I would definitely double the rice if you are wanting to feed 6. Thanks for a fabulous and easy recipe!

Grilled Turkey Reuben Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I am the writer of this recipe, and am so glad that others have enjoyed this as much as my family has. I will agree with other reviewers, that it is perfectly great to use a homemade thousand island dressing, if you don't have any storebought. I usually use a family recipe, which is very similar to Thousand Island Dressing II, but also adds a little grated onion. If you don't use all of the ingredients, feel free to freeze everything except the dressing for later use. If well packaged, the bread, sauerkraut, turkey, and cheese will all freeze perfectly for a second meal...then you just need the dressing! **On a side note, I kindly ask that if you are going to rate my recipe less than 5 stars, that you rate it based on following the recipe, not on crazy substitutions, or whether you think it is accurately named. ; ) This is my only frustration with AR!

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This recipe is a great starting point, but I did find that it needed significant changes to get it as I wanted. The cake is very moist, but I found the frosting and lemon flavor lacking. There is no way the frosting in the picture is exactly the recipe, without at least doubling. I tweaked the recipe significantly, and am finally thrilled with the final result, which I detailed (and pictured) on my blog, Carrot Top Mom. Here is a link, if you are interested in my version http://www.carrottopmom.com/?p=764 . Thank you for a good starting point, which I was able to alter to my own preference.

Hot Bacon Dressing, for Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I made this as described, except omitted the pimientos because I didn't have them, and used red wine vinegar. It was absolutely fabulous. I was nervous about the large amount of water (thinking it might not be flavorful enough) but went ahead and followed it. It was a perfect balance of flavors, and exactly what I was looking for. Definitely restaurant quality, and lots of leftovers! I served over spinach, sliced fresh mushrooms, boiled egg, and red onion. This is a keeper recipe!

Iced Maple Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
GREAT recipe! The only change I made was adding just a tiny amount of maple extract to the frosting. Delicious.

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Absolutely delicious!!!!!! If ever there was a perfect Fall soup, this is it. I love the blend of flavors. I made it exactly as described, stuck to the exact amount of spices, and it was amazing. The only thing I did differently was to add 1/2 cup of whipping cream to the soup at the end, instead of the yogurt. Yes, the yogurt probably would have been a little healthier, and I am sure it would be delicious, but I loved the creaminess that the whipping cream added. I will definitely be making this again and again!!! Next time, I will make a double batch, and stick a bunch in the freezer, as all the ingredients will freeze perfectly. Thanks for one of my new favorite recipes!!

Microwave Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I was looking for a simple recipe to make my own pudding for lunches. Wow, I had no idea it could be this easy!! I didn't watch it close enough the first time, and it got really lumpy. Pulled out my hand blender, and it fixed it in a few seconds! I have been having all sorts of fun adding things to this...frozen cherries and almond extract for a little antioxidants, slivered almonds and coconut, blueberries. It is delicious by itself. I use small storage containers, and make individual puddings. My husband and kids love them in their lunches, and with the added fruit and zero preservatives, they are more nutritious!

No Ketchup Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
INCREDIBLE! I followed the recipe exactly, except splitting it in half. It still made plenty. Highly recommend using this as the sauce for "BBQ Pork for sandwiches" found on this site. The two recipes combined taste like BBQ you would get in a good restaurant. When the recipe was cut in half, I still had plenty of sauce for 4 pounds of pork. I divide into serving sizes for my family, put in freezer bags, and reheat for a super-easy and delicious meal.
