Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I love this recipe! I have made it many times and have tried a few different variations. My favorite so far has been using bacon instead of sausage. I have also added salsa to the mix before and brought it to a potluck and it was gone in a flash and went over big. Thanks!

Peach Pork Picante

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Very good recipe! Like many others, I used a jar of peach & mango salsa and I also mixed in a couple cans of black beans (next time I think I will try pinto beans instead). Will definitely make again!

Black 'n' White Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
These were some of the best bars I have ever had! When cutting the bars, keep some warm water in a cup nearby so you can clean off the blade after each cut. The bottom layer is a little tough to cut through, but it is so good! I didn't save any of the crust for the topping, but instead I chopped up some left over chocolate chips and sprinkled them on top. I had a hard time sharing these! Thanks!

Chicago-Style Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I didn't make this recipe exactly as stated, mostly because I went to the store without the recipe, but it was still very good. I bought ready made pizza dough from the deli and wasn't sure how much I would need, so I bought 2 balls of it. When I got home, I spread of both balls in the bottom of the 9 X 13 pan and baked it for about 10 mins. Unfortunately, I figured out pretty quick that I had used too much dough. But I went ahead anyway. I cooked the sausage and added 1 can of mushrooms and a quarter of an onion and sauteed all together. Then I dumped this on the cooked dough and poured on about half a jar of spagetti sauce (forgot tomatoes), and then sprinkled on an Italian shredded cheese blend. I cooked it for another 15 minutes or so and served it to my kids. They all ate it, even though the dough was very thick. Next time I will definitely use only one ball of dough and will probably season it a bit before putting it in a well greased pan. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I don't know what everyone is complaining about-these cookies were great and easy! They are cake-like, so if you don't like cake-like cookies, don't make these. I used macadamia nuts and about half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can probably make many varieties of these. I will definitely make again!

Seafood Stuffed Avocados

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Like most of the other reviewers, I couldn't waste the avocado and I cut it up and used it in the filling. I left a little layer of avocado though which was nice. I made this for a fancy appetizer for eight people and had forgotten to get more of the shrimp and crab meat, but my husband brought me a couple of cans of the shrimp, which I added to the filling right before I needed to fill and serve them. I agree with another user that the crab meat can be left out altogether. I didn't like the texture of it-fresh crab probably would've been better. I also added a little horseradish and some red onion, but not too much to overpower the other flavors. Overall a great recipe, one that I hope to make again.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I followed another reviewer's suggestion and made sure to use a Teriyaki glaze, which was a good call since it was thicker. I think even a barbecue sauce would work well here. I forgot to brown the chicken and just put it in a 9 X 13 pan and then poured the Teriyaki sauce on top and rubbed it in. I cooked it for 15 mins at 350, then I flipped the breasts, drained a bit of the juice, poured on some Ranch dressing and the bacon bits and cooked it another 15 mins. Then I turned the oven off and sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese all over it and kept it in the oven til the cheese had melted. I was very good! I think I would prefer it with real bacon next time and maybe some sliced mushrooms under the cheese. Then it will taste a lot like a chicken dish that I get at Outback Steakhouse. Thanks!

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
As with any other type of homemade pizza, by the time you buy the pitas, sauce, cheese, meat, & veggies, you are looking at a very expensive meal. But it is always fun for everyone to make their own creations, especially the kids. We tried grilling it a couple of different ways and found the best way is to grill for about 30 secs-1 minute on one side of the pita, then take it off the grill and load the cooked side with the toppings, then place back on the grill for a few more minutes til the cheese is melted. Will definitely make this again, although next time I might try doing it potluck style with some friends and have everyone bring a couple of ingredients to help bring down the cost. Thanks!

Blackened Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I needed to bring a side dish to Thanksgiving dinner but was tired of the same old Green Bean Casserole. This recipe inspired me! I used canned green beans since I'm not too fond of fresh, but next time I will try frozen since mine turned a bit mushy. I also added a can of golden mushroom soup (which is so much better than cream of mushroom) and I only used half a pound of bacon since I already had it left over. It tasted great, although it didn't look too appealing. I invited some friends over the next day and we served left overs and one of the husbands said, "You know, I only took a little bit to be polite because it looked kind of gross, but it is actually really good!" Next time I will try to stick closer to the original recipe, but overall the idea was great!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I loved this recipe! I didn't realize it only needed to cook for 5-6 hrs when I put the chicken in the crockpot before I left for church and I was worried we would end up having to eat it for lunch. When we came home, the house smelled great and the chicken had a nice color to it. When I added the brick of cream cheese and one can of soup, I was worried it would taste too much like cream cheese. I was also worried that since I was going to try to keep it in the crockpot til dinnertime that it would thicken up too much or dry out, so I added another can of the soup and never turned the heat to high. It was wonderful! I cooked the noodles and threw them in with the soup for the last ten minutes or so. Everyone had seconds and it reheated well too. Thanks!

Easy Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I made this for a girl's night in and it was a hit! The only changes I made were that I used about half a small onion (the recipe says one slice?)and after I had sauteed the veggies and added the liquid (I eyeballed it using some chicken stock granules), I cooked the pasta right in the broth to save time and dishes. When the pasta was al dente, I added one can of tomato sauce (15 oz. I think?) and one can of diced tomatoes with Italian herbs in it, plus the can of white beans. Oh and I also had precooked some Italian sausage and drained it realy well, and then added it at the end with the beans. I also put a couple of teaspoons of sugar to balance the tartness of the tomato. Very good recipe, especially with some crusty French bread. Will definitely make again!

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
These were the best turkey burgers I ever had! For the peppers I just bought the smallest can I could find, ground them up in my mini food processor (although a blender would work too) and I used about a tablespoon of it total for all four burgers. I might use more cilantro next time. These were just great!

Easy Cheap and Yummy Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
The recipe title says it all-easy, cheap, and yummy! I think I only spent like $4.50 total on this meal. I did change the recipe a bit because I wanted to squeeze a veggie in there. I put in 2-28oz cans of Bush's Original Baked Beans, then a whole package of sliced hot dogs (8 total). For the topping, I mixed two boxes of Jiffy Cornbread mix with one egg, 1/3 cup milk, and 1 can of creamed corn. I baked it at 400 for about 40 minutes. It was very good! With the top the way I made it, it was almost a bit like one of my other favorite recipes from this site, Awesome and Easy Corn Casserole. I will definitely make this again!

Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I really liked this recipe and had fun playing around with it a bit (although one time I added way too much orzo and it was way too thick). You can use different spices, although I used a Cajun seasoning mix that I already had on hand. I left out the green peppers because I don't like them, but otherwise kept the recipe pretty much the same. Thanks!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Hands down my favorite recipe from Allrecipes.com! Every time I make this I get the best praise, but I've only given out the recipe once (okay, so I'm a bit selfish, I admit!). I like to mix it all together in the casserole dish so I only have one dish to clean. Thanks!

Easter Leftovers Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I made this recipe with leftover Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and some ham and I wasn't sure how good it would be. But I was very pleasantly surprised. I actually burned my mouth a tiny bit eating it before it had cooled down it was so good. Thanks!

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
These were the best! I wish I had made more though. Next time I want to try some of the different flavored kisses and M&M's, like maybe mint chocolate. I used square pretzels because I couldn't find the round type. Thanks!

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Oh, this was so easy and so good! I have never made fudge (or any other type of candy for that matter) and I had no problems making this. Will definitely be making again!

Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This quiche is so quick and yummy! I usually just make it with a bag of shredded Italian cheese and leave out the onions because my kids don't like them. I also use the Oscar Meyer bacon pieces instead of bacon bits, or I use real bacon. And to keep the crust from getting too dark I wrap it with a bit of tinfoil. Thanks!
