Almost Eggless Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
I agree with SpecialK (Feb. 28, 2011); this truly is pretty darn close to the real thing. Although I liked it immediately after preparation, I found that the waiting time does improve the flavor. I have a "go-to" tofu egg salad recipe that I THOUGHT was pretty good until I made this. The ingredients' proportions are right on. I THINK what put it over the top was the real (Hellman's) mayo. Only two T. for the entire recipe..not a deal killer IMHO. My other recipe uses "fake" mayo. Fake is OK for some applications, but not particularly for a recipe that already reduces the cholesterol tally by a landslide. As usual, moderation is the key to a healthy diet. Jeninga75...try it with less or no turmeric if that ingredient is off putting, as it can be at times. I will be making this again:) Oh! and I like the idea of using it on toast (brioche?) Perhaps add a crispy leaf of lettuce? Hint: Use a pastry blender/knife to mash the tofu. Works like a charm:)

Crab Salad III

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
I was searching (again) for a crab salad recipe for sandwiches and came upon this recipe. What I find absolutely fantastic is the dressing! It is THE ONE for which I've been searching forever. I mixed the dressing ingredients and added it to my crab/celery/chive mixture and WOW!!! Placed on white bread, this crab salad recipe is PERFECT!!! Why white bread? Crab salad DEMANDS it. Save the whole grain breads for more assertive sandwich fillings. This will be my go-to dressing recipe for all future mayo-dressed salads.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This is an absolutely fantastic recipe. The pancakes are truly a work of art. Fluffy as a pillow and you can't beat this buttermilk base. I took a few posted suggestions, such as reducing the ingredients by half, adding an extra 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and a tsp. of vanilla. By barely mixing the wet and dry ingredients together, it produced a batter that was very puffy and light. This will be my ONLY pancake recipe for now on.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This is an excellent treatment of kale! So light, crispy, and delicious. I ate the first batch by myself. After I took a second batch out of the oven, I sprinkled some powdered vinegar over the still-hot chips. I had ordered the powdered vinegar online a while ago for homemade potato chips. The kale chips had a great zippy salt-n-vinegar taste. It's difficult trying to stop eating them!

Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Look no longer for THE BEST FGT recipe because this is it. I used my deep fat fryer in which to cook them with great success. The coating adheared perfectly to the sliced tomatoes. My husband, who dislikes vegetables, ate the equivalent of two whole, large tomatoes! I served these with homemade buttermilk ranch dressing. This recipe is certainly a keeper.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
This recipe is exceptionally delicious. I took the advice of others and doubled the sauce ingredients, used a T. of brown sugar, and swirled in a T. or so of butter to finish the sauce on high heat AFTER removing the steaks to a platter. I used a stainless steel fry pan and cranked the heat to super-high; my steaks became crusty and deeply browned. After browning, I removed them to a plate where I loosely draped foil over them. With the heat still on high, I added the balsamic, wine, garlic, salt and pepper and SCRAPED THE FROND from the bottom of the pan. For folks whose sauces remained watery, I suggest that this technique be used in the future. It is vitally important, as well, to use real aged balsamic, as it is pretty viscous with which to begin and helps create the desired glaze. The pat of butter added after the sauce was reduced further tightened my sauce to perfection. Don't be skimpy on the salt and pepper, either! I'm looking forward to making this again and urge others to do the same.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
This is the taste for which I've been looking! Today is the third time I've made it since I placed this recipe in my Allrecipes.com Recipe Box. The ONLY problem is that I can't stop eating it once I start. I eat it for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert! Today, I didn't have nearly enough salad dressing, so I had to substitute fat-free plain yogurt. It turned out fabulous, nonetheless.

Cherry Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I have made these on two occasions and everyone simply LOVED these! Even before they are served, people tried to get a little taste. They are so simple to prepare and I've yet to have any leftovers. I always get tons or requests for the recipe and just give folks this website. Friends call them 'cherry crepes.' I'm going to start experimenting with various pie fillings. To celebrate the 4th of July, I'm going to make a 3-batch combo of red, white, and blue...cherry, apple, and blueberry fillings!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
The older I become, the more I realize that a simple recipe made with great ingredients can be absolutely FANTASTIC. This recipe is OUTSTANDING. This may sound truly strange, but I'm going to make eggrolls with this cabbage recipe!

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
This is a "keeper" recipe! When I enclosed the filling, I pleated the edges for a truly authentic presentation. They were delicious and my husband and I ate the entire recipe in one sitting. Oink. I then made more and froze them so that we can have them at a (nearly) moments notice. I didn't change any of the ingredients or cooking procedures and was thoroughly pleased with the results. I also served these with hoisin sauce, a wasabi/soy mixture, and plum sauce for variety.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
My husband loved this meatloaf. I made it exactly as stated in the recipe except, as suggested by others, I placed the brown sugar/ketchup on top. It was moist and the flavor was right on, which is great if your family isn't enthusiastic about highly seasoned food. I, too, liked the light hand with the seasonings, which is unusual for me (hotter, spicier is my thing). I gave it only four stars and, perhaps, it's my fault because I believe I packed the meat too tightly; I prefer a less dense meatloaf. It will be great for meatloaf sandwiches...with REAL mayo, salt, pepper, and white bread! Yum! My husband ate it for dinner, lunch, and then dinner again, so I will continue making this recipe:-) I'm certain it will be five stars next time since I now know to use a lighter hand when mixing the ingredients.

Dennie's Fresh Lobster Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
WOW!!! This is now my favorite lobster salad recipe. I did add a little salt and a very tiny bit of minced celery, but that was it. The amount of butter and mayo (Best Foods REAL) is perfect...I wouldn't change these measurements.
