Paleo One Minute Muffin

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
For the amount of effort, these are spectacular. It's not angel food cake, but it does rise a bit, tastes good, and lends itself to plenty of variations. After the first 30 seconds, I had to use 50% power on my microwave, which is prone to having things overflow. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily they came out of the ramekins. This may be about the quickest hot breakfast you can make from scratch!

Southern Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
This is a keeper! I've been looking for creative things to do with leftover chicken giblets when I roast a chicken, and I think this will be my "go-to" recipe. I halved the recipe, and there was enough liver/gizzard/etc. to "dirty" the rice.

Injera

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
Teff and millet are not actually the same grain: Millet, for one thing, is gluten-free, while teff has gluten. So, cooking with millet may be one reason this recipe hasn't worked out, because gluten gives dough elasticity and makes it rise better.

Deviled Eggs I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
This is a classic, no-frills deviled egg recipe, which was exactly what I was looking for. They turned out beautifully, and there's plenty of room for additions/experimentation. I just added a touch of garlic salt.

Easy Masoor Daal

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Amazingly good, and I had everything on hand to make it without making a special trip (powdered ginger worked fine). It's even better after a few hours or the next day. Use your judgment on the cayenne pepper; I found a heaping 1/4 tsp. to be enough to make things interesting.

Vegetarian Chickpea Curry with Turnips

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This was everything I hoped it would be. I doubled the recipe, soaked dry chick peas overnight, drained them, and cooked everything in the slow cooker with 3 cups of water added -- I'd suggest a cooking time of 6 hours if you try it this way. I've got another bag of dry chick peas in the pantry, and I know what I'll be making with it. Might add some potatoes and/or lentils next time, too.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
This needs 6 stars or more. If I hadn't made it myself, I wouldn't believe there are garbanzo beans in it! Mine came out like a very moist, but surprisingly light batch of cakey brownies. This is one of the best recipes I've gotten from Allrecipes, period.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I will most definitely be making this again. I had never used cinnamon in a savory dish before, but it really adds something good. I served this on homemade corn tortillas, garnished with fresh chopped cilantro. Simple, delicious, and very cost-effective.

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Great idea. I'll be making this again, but with a little more salt and quite a bit less oil. I served mine over brown rice, which helped balance out the oil when prepared as-is. Also, as an alternative to the steamer basket, I like to put fresh spinach in a colander and pour a kettle of boiling water over it.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I was looking for a winter squash recipe that didn't call for a ton of sugar/butter/etc., and this fit the bill. Mine never got crispy like traditional fries, and I found I had to cook them a bit longer than 20 minutes. That may just underscore the need to slice them somewhat thinly. Mine weren't as close to sweet potato fries as I had expected from the description, but they were a welcome and healthy change of pace.

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
This is my favorite kind of Allrecipes recipe: One that is solid as-is, but ripe for variations. Prepared as written, it's not "too" anything -- salty, spicy, etc. --leaving room to add according to one's preference, and the flavors balance well. The proportions of the recipe also lend themselves well to making a half batch.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I've made this as-is, and I agree with other reviewers that it's also a great base recipe for experimentation. My latest variation was a low-fat, non-dairy, non-wheat version (applesauce instead of oil, rice milk instead of dairy, masa harina in place of flour, and egg substitute just because I was out of eggs). That also worked well, if you need to adapt the recipe for dietary needs.

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I'm giving this four stars because I thought it was too salty as-is. Still very good, though, and it smelled amazing as it cooked all day. I separated the cooked pork roast to shred it and kept it in its own bowl away from the beans so I could control the saltiness by adding them in smaller doses. I served it on homemade corn tortillas with diced tomatoes, onions, a shake of cilantro and a squeeze of lime. I'll be making these again, just with less salt.

Tahini Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
These are delicious, and taste almost like a hybrid oatmeal/peanut butter cookie. It really is important to let them rest for several minutes after they come out of the oven so they will hold their shape and not crumble. Using baking parchment makes it easier to remove them from the cookie sheet undisturbed -- then, remove them from the parchment after a few more minutes.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This is even better than I had hoped: My kitchen smells like I cooked a Thanksgiving turkey! I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and just rubbed on the onion soup mix to coat the turkey rather than using all of it. I also poured in enough water to cover the bottom of the pot, and cooked it for 4 hours. Tender, flavorful, and definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Delicious, and it doesn't get much easier than this. I know I'll be making this one again.

Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Yay! I can make my own pasta!!! I took other reviewers' advice and added 1 tbsp of olive oil, and cut back on the salt. I'm thrilled that I got perfect pasta on the first try. I'll be making this again and again, and sharing it far and wide.

Rice Cooker Crawfish Tails

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I was skeptical about cooking all this in my rice cooker, and that everything would be cooked all the way through. Rest assured, it works great. In addition to working as-is, it's a fine base recipe for variations depending on what you have on hand. The crawfish is good, but you could make it cheaper (save money on pre-peeled crawfish or time on peeling it) with shrimp, tilapia, catfish, etc., etc.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Excellent. Use your judgment on the level of spices; it's always easier to add than subtract. It's a solid recipe. I soaked the beans overnight, and they were definitely done after 4 hours in the slow cooker. I just finished making a batch with smoked pork neck bones added for extra flavor -- I highly recommend this recipe either way.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Delicious and economical. I know chili recipes vary widely depending on the region, but this is good as-is, or as a point of departure for variations. I'll definitely be making this again, and I'll probably substitute a can of tomatoes, and add a clove of garlic and a green pepper to make it like Mom used to make... only gloriously spicier.
