Seafood Bake for Two

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
There are not sufficient words to describe how wonderful this was but I will try. This was the main dish for my husband and my Non-Traditional Thanksgiving meal this year. My husband prepared this exactly as the recipe called for and it was FABULOUS! Be sure to spend a little more on FRESH seafood. Frozen scallops are generally rubbery and although Tilapia would also taste good, the Halibut is just so good it wouldn't be the same if substituted.

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!

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 :)

This recipe has been a hit since our son was old enough to ask for it! The great part is it's easy to personalize to your family's taste.

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!

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 :)

Tortilla Beef Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
GREAT Recipe! I went with a couple suggestions, but overall changed little. I added taco seasoning and chopped onions to the beef as I cooked it, a layer of chopped onions between the beef and cheese, and substituted a can of rotell for the salsa just for personal taste. As crazy as it sounds, the cream of chicken soup works great. i do suggest the chips at the bottom. Crumble them and it makes a nice bottom to your casserole. This will be a keeper!

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!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Excellent! We loved this recipe and will try again. Used beer and it turned out great. I've cooked with beer many times and it's not a taste issue at all once it's cooked, it's about the ingredients of the beer working in the recipe. PERFECT for the cooler night ahead as we go into winter time. UPDATE 12/7/2013 : This has been a cold night soup, a Thanksgiving soup, and a company's coming tonight soup. SOOOOOOOO easy, sooooooo good, this is a must in our recipe book. To keep down the calories (it's already pretty healthy) use a low fat sour cream, less cheese, and white corn tortilla instead of chips as the sides/toppers.

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.)

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I can't say YUMMMMMM loud enough! This was the end to an almost perfect Italian Thanksgiving at our house this year. We always have an "untraditional" meal at Thanksgiving and with this year being Italian, I thought these cookies would make an appropriate desert......I have made them again since and even felt comfortable giving a batch to one of my college professors whose mother is from Sicily. He told me I had made his Mamma's christmas cookies...and had done a great job! UPDATE: I've made these several times and they are ALWAYS a hit with everyone who tries them.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
We always have an "Untraditional Thanksgiving" with our family and my best friend's family coming together to celebrate and eat. 2007's menu was italian and my first ever attempt at making lasagna. I was a bit scared, but there were NO LEFTOVERS! It was absolutely fantastic! I too made the dish the night before and let the flavors "meld" in the fridge over night and I soaked the noodles (as suggested by other reviewers) instead of pre-cooking them. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We had two additional guests this year (a co-worker and her fiance) and they now think I'm a great cook!

I made this for a pot luck breakfast at college and it went over great! We spread it on bagels and on toast :) I think it would also be great done with peaches (chopped up) and strawberries!

Cajun Spice Seasoning Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I made a batch of this to split...half to keep and half to give as an addition to a Christmas present. I've used it several times now and LOVE it! Wheather cooked into a recipe or sprinkled on fresh french fries or on warmed up leftovers, it's a 5 star for sure!

Tuna Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
We have made these three times now and will many times again. No kids in our house, he's grown and on his own, but we adults LOVE these! We have done them in hot dog buns and without the olives as I do not like them at all. We have tried different cheese as toppers and trust me when I say EXPERIMENT with the cheese! Thank you so much for this recipe Karen!
