Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Loved these! The only changes I made, were using garlic salt (1/2 teaspoon) instead of regular salt, and Asiago cheese instead of mozzarella since I had no mozzarella on hand, and grated the onion with the zucchini. I cooked them in olive oil (personal preference). The were so good, there was no need to use sour cream or sauce. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
This IS the world's best lasagna! My daughter first made this two years ago for Mother's Day, and her father (NYC Italian-American) and I could not get over how delicious this was. It was, and still is, the best lasagna either of us have ever had, and we have tried a lot of lasagna in our lives. The sauce is the key, and has now become my the sauce I used when making plain pasta. There is no need to alter any of the ingredients; the balance is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing recipe!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Love this easy, classic recipe. I remember my late mother making this in a covered pan, 250º oven (before crock pots), in the 1960's, so it's definitely comfort food for me! The only thing I do differently is I will quickly brown both sides in a skillet, remove meat, then add the water to the skillet, scrapping the brown bits from the pan, before I put the meat in a crock pot, then add the soups as well as the liquid from skillet. It adds a little more depth of flavor, that my family likes. If I know I'll be pressed for time around dinner time, a few peeled quartered potatoes and some peeled carrots are added at the start. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Used Mahi Mahi since it’s what I had on hand, followed the recipe to the letter. My family (especially my Italian) husband loved it! This was quick, easy to follow and bursting with layers of flavor. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Fantastic muffins! I had four over ripe bananas, so I used the extra banana. Not having enough butter, I took a chance and used 1/2 a stick. Didn’t mix more or less than I would any other muffin batter. The result; lovely light, very banana flavored muffins that my family raved about. Thank you for sharing this five star recipe!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Of all the hot artichoke spinach dips from All Recipe, this is by far a favorite in our house. I doubled the recipe for a football gathering last weekend, and it was the first thing to disappear! Thanks for sharing this classic hot dip!

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
Tried two variations on this recipe yesterday, for a local bake sale today. Both results were excellent! Two staples in my pantry are canned pumpkin PIE filling for quick desserts, and canned solid pumpkin. The recipe using the PIE filling was wet enough, the eggs weren’t required. The cake was moist and delicious, a definite keeper recipe. The other recipe using straight canned pumpkin with the suggested two extra eggs, using yellow cake mix (didn’t have a second box of spiced on hand), adding 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and made wonderful cupcakes. I love these quick desserts using pantry staples. Great recipes; thank you for sharing!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Over the past 25 years, I've tried many pot roast recipes, but always come back to this one. There's a reason some recipes, like this pot roast recipe, are classics; they are just good, comfort food. The only thing I do differently is I'll use a splash of red wine, instead of vermouth or white wine, if it's handy. Thank you for sharing this recipe worthy of five big stars!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Today is my son's birthday, and I have ruined two different batches of chocolate frosting I've tried to make for his cake. Not wanting to run to the store for "canned" frosting, though I would try a completely new recipe. After reading the reviews, decided to give this one a try. It's a wonderful, easy, creamy recipe and since I was able to make it the first time without ruining it; it's clearly idiot proof! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe and saving the day for me....and the birthday boy. Cheers!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
This is simply a wonderful little recipe and have used a variation on this for years. This recipe, however is my favorite. The only thing I do differently is drizzle a little of the brown sugar sauce/caramel over each layer of biscuits, instead of pouring it on at the end. My children are adults now, but still ask for this when we go to the beach each summer. Good memories. Thank you for sharing this little gem of a recipe.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Perfecting a pie crust has been my downfall for almost 45 years; they end up too tender or too tough, so have resorted to buying a Pillsbury pie crust. While it's a nice crust, I've always wished I could make a decent crust on my one. Today, I was going to make a chess pie for Sunday supper when I realized I was out of my store bought pie crust and thought I would once more attempt to make a crust. After reading about your Grandmother's cottage industry during the depression, I had to try this recipe. I can only say the trimmings that I sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar were so good, I can't wait for the reviews on the crust used in the pie. Thank you SO much for sharing this family heirloom; it now the recipe I will be using!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Made this recipe the first time, following the direction exactly, and it was fantastic; my family just went wild. I used Cobia, since my husband had just returned from a fishing trip in the Gulf, and we had lots of fish. The batter was so light and tasty, the next time I made this recipe, I doubled the batter and made battered/fried onion rings as well. Another big hit! The white sauce was so popular, I now have a batch on hand in the fridge to use as a dip with chips, on tacos or slightly thinned as a salad dressing. Thank you for sharing this easy and very tasty recipe!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Quick, easy and absolutely delicious! Far better than anything store bought, and much less expensive. Once again, I've just made a double batch for a cookout tomorrow, and I'm certain it will be gone within two hours, with lots of requests for the recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I made this for Super Bowl, and it was a huge hit with everyone, especially the men. By chance, I found rye crackers at the local market, that really made this taste like a Reuben sandwich. Thank you for sharing!

Southern Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This was without a doubt the best pimento cheese I've ever had! I omitted the jalapenos, and bumped up the cayenne a bit since I like my pimento cheese with a bit of a bite to it. Other than that, this recipe is flawless. Thank you so much for sharing!

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This has to be my favorite pumpkin bread recipe! The use of butter, instead of oil, gives it much richer taste, with none of the oily taste/feel of other recipes that use oil. A winner!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
I made this recipe for our Saturday night pizza, last night, without mentioning I changed recipes. My husband immediately commented on the crust being like the crust back home (Wooster Street, New Haven, CT) where he grew up. It was absolutely perfect! Thank you for sharing!

Easy to make, impossible to ruin (if you keep to the recipe), and without a doubt, a 'melt in your mouth' pie.
