Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
Good as recipe is. I did add color with fresh parsley, and drained some of the fat before making the gravy.

This recipe is perfect as it is written. Better than Schwans and worth the effort!

Taco Soup

This recipe from my awesome mother-in-law is an easy, hearty, and fun to assemble meal! Left overs are even better.

Apfelkuchen

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
Delicious, but this does not "keep" ~ if not eaten right away it gets soggy. A German woman in my neighborhood says she cubes the apples in small pieces.

Garlic Prime Rib

Excellent followed exactly. (I don't know why people can rate a recipe and change the whole thing. Thanks to Dani's review, I was confident; and thanks to Chef Mike for sharing!)

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Trying the recipe as written was good Stroganoff and is a terrific starter if someone wants to have a base recipe. Stroganoff isn't supposed to be gourmet - but harty, tasty, and filling. Tonight I used 3/4 pound of a tender steak, cut it into pieces salting & peppering sauted in with chopped onion and canned mushrooms. (I even sprinkled in some ground flaxseed since we try to use that wherever possible for health reasons.) Upped the sourcream and added worchestire because I had no mayo (only Miracle Whip). Since Stroganoff is a bit sour, I made STARNETSA's "Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes" to bring the meal into balance.

Dressing for Garden Lettuce

Was not for us. Tasted like milk, vinegar, and sugar. Maybe try it with rice vinegar?

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Sounded so wonderful including the reviews, but the flavors just are not for us.

Yogurt Spinach Dip

Way too much salt. After I doubled the recipe without adding the seasoning salt and garlic salt, it was perfect.

South Texas Carne Guisada

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I love beef and buy sirloin frequently on sale for cooking in allrecipes.com recipes. This site helps me tremendously to make interesting meals on the fly. And this was good stuff - and called for just the right amount of cumin! Flavors are great together. If you're using a cheap cut of meat, cook it right or it'll be tough. This recipe is also a great starter for green chilie stew. I added chopped, boiled potatoe to stretch it, but it definitely took away from the flavor. Recommend making as is. Wrapped it up in flour tortillas, served with shredded cheese and sour cream. Thanks for the recipe.

Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken with Onion Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
It's always tempting to cook chicken longer, and I'm glad I didn't in this instance. Using 3, thick, bonelss, skinkless breasts, the cook time was perfect. (Nothing worse than overdone, dry chicken.) Cooked the bacon to a crisp and crumbled them in with the feta mixture. I recommend a little more sour cream in the stuffing. Well worth the prep - both were delicious. Thank you for the recipe, the next day at work every passerby saw my leftovers and wanted the recipe.

Ground Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Wondering what to do differently with that pound of thawed groud beef? YOU FOUND IT. AND IT CAN BE AS GOOD AS YOU WANT IT. I've got some eaters that just like bland stuff and they wonder "oh gosh, what is she trying next." So, after reading other reviews I did two things differently: browned the ground beef with some salt and pepper so my "boring-preferred" eaters saw ground beef. THIS WAY I COULD DRAIN THE MEAT, too and not end up with a soggy mush on the cookie sheet. Separetly sauted diced up mushrooms, onion, celery and garlic; then added a can of cream of mushroom soup with some 2% milk (no cream on hand). Used a whole wisked egg and some of "my" sauce to help form the loaves for each. Baked until the crust was golden. Used sauce on the side. Try this, you may really like it. Thanks Julie!

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Fun and delicious. Salsa is key. Here in New Mexico we have lots of choices in our International aisle at the grocery store. Try crushing your pinto beans while simmering on the stove and maybe add a little garlic Powder. Omitted taco seasoning in ground beef and only added salt, pepper, and garlic Powder. Fry bread dough is very thick after kneading for several minutes. Roll or make by hand Very thin discs. Another reviewer said cut a little hole in center of each bead to fry, and also another reviewer who didn't have a thermometer said they tested a few small amounts of dough until they fried right-both were INVALUABLE pieces advice! Quit worrying about making them perfect circles - they're still yummy. Everyone had great fun adding fresh ingredients and North of the Border Green Chilie Salsa.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
5 stars made EXACTLY AS IS. Used on Sam's Carrot Cake from this site. Easy, delicious. Why do I ever pay for this stuff at a restaurant when I can make it myself and it tastes better? Dessert at home from now on!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
6 years later and this cake continues to get rave reviews - let me add my 5 stars. This is the first cake I've ever made from scratch in my 48 years, and it was cheered by everyone. Used lowfat buttermilk because it was all the store had at the time. Also cooked in two round cake pans and made a double layer cake. Moist, full of good stuff. Used Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site and it was the exact right amount - I chopped a bag of walnuts so I used the leftover and put it on the frosting. YUM!

10 Pound Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Cheers to the party-sized portion! I had to make this immediately upon seeing the photo today. Used whipping cream from the refrigerated carton (on-hand), and it worked out wonderfully. This is a Restaurant-Style cheesecake for sure, only better. Used fresh, cut up, lightly sweetened strawberries on the side after chilling the cheesecake instead of using the strawberry pie filling. Wonderful! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Lemon Lush

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Made to specifications and it was a huge hit! Not having worked with pudding and jello mixes before, I was unaware that this would take Several hours to set. It was suggested by my mother-in-law that when she adds fruit or anything else to jello and pudding mixes, it takes much longer. The recipe was incredibly rich and delicious. Thank you for sharing.
