Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
OK but not what we were hoping. Basically it's just meatballs.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
I too was fearful of the mix it all together approach but it works! Third time making it my yeast was bad, but otherwise this has been a go to keeper!

Cabbage Hamburger Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Not bad but it reminded the husband and I of a boxed hamburger meal. Easy enough and we might try it again sometime but it did not WOW us.

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Excellent recipe. Next time I think we will try baking, just for the health aspect. I did add extra pepper and garlic due to our tastes, but it would have been good as directed. For bread crumbs I ALWAYS use crushed croutons. This time I had garlic and parmesan on hand which was nice without being overbearing. Do use enough oil to keep your chicken from sticking!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
I gave this 4 stars due to changes needed to the original recipe. As suggested by others I cut the butter and the time. I will add more pepper next time, maybe play with some other spices too, but there WILL be a next time in our house. This was a very good starter recipe for just about any combination of spices one might want to add. I cooked it for a birthday dinner and everyone liked it, well almost everyone. I made some nuggets for my great nephew but being the VERY picky eater he is he didn't want to try them, so I took them for lunch the next day....his loss! Very tender and juicy and they look so crunchy even though they are actually soft breaded.

Southern Baked Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Halved this one for just the two of us and it was FANTASTIC! As suggested by others I cut down on the butter on top. I used fresh candy apple sweet onions and fresh yellow squash from one of our local farmer's markets. Not having time, room, or energy for a garden I find the farmer's markets a huge plus to our meals. Only thing I may do different next time is skip the sugar. I just didn't see the use. (Maybe it's because the onions we use are sweet enough.)

Chicken Diablo

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
FANTASTIC! I was honestly expecting just a nice meal but this was much more than expected. Husband made this while I was at work and WOW! He substituted salsa for the hot sauce and served it over a bed of white rice. We will opt for wild rice next time but otherwise no changes! This one is a definite keeper! ADDED AFTER EATING AGAIN.....Brown rice works very well also. This recipe is just fantastic!

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms with Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
EXCELLENT! We had guest comming for dinner and one of the girls is a veggitarian. We were having country style ribs, so I prepared vegie kabobs for her and these mushrooms for all of us. The ONLY reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I did alter them a bit. I skipped the onions all together and used Gorganzola cheese as per another reviewer. EVERYONE loved them and they were gone in a big hurry!

Meatball Sub Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Very good meal sandwich (not a lunch thing unless you're REAL hungry). I will definitely double the sauce next time as others have suggested. It was VERY good and there just wasn't enough. We used wheat sub rolls as we prefer wheat bread.....tasted great!

Mama's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
I get rave reviews from everyone I serve this. My husband does not like the traditional sour cream based sauce used for Chicken Enchiladas so I use red and green enchilada sauces combined and use only chicken breast meat for the tastiest chicken enchiladas ever :)

Caribbean-Spiced Pork Side Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I made these for our traditionally untradtional thanksgiving this year and good rave reviews. I made three racks for 7 people and only had enough left over for two plates to send home. The flavor was fantastic, they weren't dry, the lime flavor snuck in but didn't overwhelm, the ginger stood out and the rest blended very nicely. Everyone was pleasently full. The meal was ended with jamaican plantain tarts, also from this site and ......... My best friend made the carribean holiday shrimp and the hard do bread for our appetizer and bread while my adopted little sister made the jamaican rice (also from this site) as a side dish as well. The meal was fantastic and every bit of it was from this site! THANKS AGAIN ALLRECIPES.COM!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
After reading the reviews I started w/2 1/2 cups of flour and did have to add a bit more to make workable dough after rising 1 hour. Pre-baked 5 mins in 400 degree oven. Topped w/sauce, mozzerella, pepperoni, italian sausage, onions, mushrooms, and black olives. I made 3 batches and made 1 thin crust on a large cookie sheet, 1 "hand tossed" type of crust on a small cookie sheet, and 1 batch of breadsticks. Pizza was really good (even though I forgot to add garlic powder and italian seasoning into the dough) but the bread sticks were only so-so. After we finished the breadsticks I realized I should have let them rise again after shaping, so no fault of the recipe at all !LOL! I do suggest starting w/the extra flour and adding seasonings before cooking. I wouldn't call the crust "dull", but it would have been even better had I remembered to add the seasonings.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This is the roll recipe I've been looking for :) These got GREAT reviews from family and friends. I was asked why i didn't make a double batch and my brother-in-law asked me to make them again for his b-day dinner. I made 12 clover leaf rolls from deviding the dough into 36 balls and placing 3 balls in each cup of my muffin tin. Next time I'm trying the 9x13 pan and 18 balls. GREAT recipe....Thanks :)

Slow Cooker Venison Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I'm giving only 4 stars due to the changes I made....This was a wonderful "base" recipie that was easy to adjust. I adjusted as follows: No Soy or Worchestishire sauces and substitute garlic powder or crushed garlic for the garlic salt. Salting venison will lead to dry meat.....even from the crock pot. Next I only used 1/4 to 1/2 of the soup mix (also because of salt content)and substituted cream of celery soup due to a mushroom allergy in the family. I used this modified recipie to cook two-2.5 lb rump roasts and they were OUT OF THIS WORLD YUMMY! Moist, tender meat with flavour galore :) I did have to prepare my vegies (carrots, celery, tatos) in a pot on the stove due to lack of room in the crock pot, but that was fine. The soup makes a WONDERFUL gravy in the end. I did thicken it slightly w/ corn starch, but only a tad. Everyone loved the meal and today THANKSGIVING) I have been elected to attempt it again:) This time I have a 10lb venison rump roast, so I am doing it in the oven. I'll let ya know ;)****UPDATE**** The 10lb Runp Roast was.....well let's just say it's TOO BIG a piece of venison! I was forced to cook it in the oven due to it not fitting in my slow cooker. I still used this recipe and the gravy was again fantastic. The roast's flavour was good, but such a large cut of meat requires more cooking time than the moisture could take and it was dry. So stick with the smaller roasts :)
