German Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
So there was a little confusion with the lasagna noodles, as the box said 12-14 minutes, so I boiled for about 11 total. And the sauerkraut didn't come in a 20 oz can, so I got a 27 oz. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and it was hands down and instant winner. I tried it on my family for a Saturday get together and everyone had been ho-hum about me trying this "weird" dish. But turns out, they ALL LOVED IT! It was completely gone, which is really rare. Thanks so much!

Fast Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I'm writing to update my review since I've made this several times now. Changes: 1) Only use sour cream in place of mayo. 2) 1 can cream of chick, 1 of cream of mushroom. 3) Add about 1/3 cup of milk. I mix everything together, reserving some cheese to top with. I use whatever cheese we are currently stocking. Some times I add the bread crumbs, some times I don't. They really don't add much. But the sour cream makes it. We tried doing half sour cream, half mayo, and the all sour cream was much better.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
Made it almost exactly according to the recipe, except I did not have cilantro. We all enjoyed it. However, in the future, I'd likely only add one can of black beans. But there will be a future, as it was quite good!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Yum! Very tasty. Have made several times now. Only change was to cook for 45 min at 375, turning every 15. I serve it and left over sauce on rice for an Asian feel.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Oh my is this cookie tasty! My husband and I can't stop eating them! The first time I made them, our only complaint was that they came out a little thin and crispy. The second time... THE PERFECT COOKIE. So I'm updating to tell you what I did to get it perfect. The only change I made to the listed ingrediants the second time was to add 5 teaspoons of flour. That's it. Cooked for 9 min at 350, and it was perfect. The cookies will look "undone" or "undercooked", but give them a minute to cool and they will be perfect. For me, what killed me the first time was adding the 1/4 cup butter back in that was on the Tollhouse bag. DO NOT DO. Tollhouse is wrong, Jolene is right. I made 70 cookies for a house of 10 and they were gone in a day.

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Very delicious. My only complaint is that it came out too runny, but I'm not currently remembering what I did, and my notes are not with me. So helpful, I know! Will update later if I can. But it's almost a moot point, because it was still very, very good.

Broccoli Quiche with Mashed Potato Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
YUM YUM YUM! Wow, the potatoes really did it! I used instant spuds, but they were "high quality" instant spuds. 2 C of that to make the crust, which I also had to bake for about 40 minutes. In the egg mixture my only changes were: I used 1/2C milk (1%), 4 eggs (egg beaters), no onion, colby jack shredded cheese instead of cheddar, and I used garlic instead of nutmeg. So, they were pretty simple changes, and the dish was just amazing! Hubby and I had a hard time stopping eating. This WILL be made again.

Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
NOTE: The main issue with this dish is the rice. Depending on what kind of rice you use you could end up with too much rice, or a little extra liquid. If the kind of rice you use doesn't "expand" as much as what the directions call for, you may need to make more. The first time I made it I think I had too much rice- it was hard to find the chicken! But I discovered the hard way it's better to add more chicken and broccoli than to mess with the liquid ratio. I also always use the 16 oz of half jack/cheddar instead of processed cheese (sounded too fake tasting). Small changes, but the flavor was spot on delicious, every time. A keeper!

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Yum-ee. Husband and I both loved this. I couldn't stop going back for "just another half slice." Modifications made: 3 1/4 C strawberries. (One frozen bag of whole strawberries, 2/3 sliced, 1/3 diced.) 1 3/4 C sugar. 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Same amount of oil, but subbed 1/2 C no sugar added applesauce for that much oil. That's it. Really, the changes were so small I doubt they were needed, except for the applesauce for health sake, and the strawberries. Even adding 3 1/4 cup of sliced/diced strawberries wasn't enough to give it a real strong strawberry flavor. May try adding more, but I think it just may be one of those things that you either accept, or the solution is much more crafty than I'm capable of. (Strawberry applesauce was a good idea- but I didn't see any at my store.) I may want more strawberry flavor, but this was pretty fantastic anyway.

Cheesy Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Giving this a 5 for the simplicity. It was pretty good, just lacking a bit of something. It could be that my taste was a hair different, as I used a different brand/type of chopped spinach and fat free cottage cheese. Will be making again, as the ingredients are so simple, and usually on hand.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole IV

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
We've made this several times now. We don't change it very much- we aren't exact on chicken, and do 12 oz of broccoli. We add a small can of mushroom stems and pieces. I usually decrease the milk by a hair because of the liquid in the other foods. As written, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper is way too much. We cut in half and still have a very strong pepper flavor. We love this recipe because it is a delicious chicken "slop" that is very healthy and low in calories.

Sugar Free Mocha Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Unbelievable! One of the best things I have ever tried on Allrecipes. I used two different chocolate graham cracker crusts, and mocha instant coffee instead of espresso. I wasn't sure about "brown sugar substitute" as the only kind I can find is Splenda Brown Sugar BLEND, which would call for half of the 1C if following the normal rules between Splenda and Splenda BLEND. So I compromised and used 1/2C regular Splenda, and 1/4 C of the brown sugar blend. This equals 1C of sweetness. Anyway, that was all I changed, and it came out AMAZING. I can't understand a one star review at all. YUM.

Berry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
I loved these! They're addicting. I ate four on the first day I made them. I made them pretty close to the directions. I did not substitute for butter or use more sugar. I used a blueberry/raspberry/blackberry mix. The only thing I will recommend: do not use frozen fruit. I was in the freezer section looking for frozen cranberries when i realized I would have to switch to this recipe, so I just grabbed the bag mix. Everything turned out okay, but I did drain a lot of liquid after thawing the berries and was concerned with how it would effect the sugar and cornstarch. They still turned out great, I love that berry combo, but I will definitely use fresh next time. I prefer fresh, I was just too lazy to walk all the way to the other side of the store again. Oh, and I did substitute half the sugar for Truvia in both the crust and berries, just to cut down on sugar and calories. Again, they tasted great, so for those of you watching your sugar intake, there is no problem substituting at least some of it.

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia Fillets

Very tasty. Made as written and everyone loved it. I use the extra seasoning cheese mixture on zucchini and roast it as a side to the fish. So good!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
So freaking good. I had to use almond milk instead of half and half, and I followed the suggestion of laying out the spinach, the raw chicken on top, then sauce, and cooking for 25 minutes at 350, adding cheese and going for another 10. Served over rice and it was delicious! Thank you for a great recipe!

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
Simple, tasty. I had to pan cook the onion as my husband hates it raw, and I subbed a can of cream of chicken for mushroom, simply because I didn't have two like I thought. I used what was left of a mild cheddar packet. All said, it was quite tasty! Next time I'll try to plan for it instead of just using what I have to see how the base recipe differs, but I do love a forgiving recipe like this one.

Corn Dog Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Yummy! I don't like celery and the hubby doesn't like onion, so we skipped both and the sage. I added one can of creamed corn and used turkey franks (40 cal a frank) and we both really like it. I think with the creamed corn it might have been a little too moist, so I might try decreasing the milk a bit next time, or just cooking longer.

Sirloin Marinara

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I had one doubt after another while making this (too much pasta sauce? is the steak going to be over cooked?) but I stuck to the directions and it came out wonderfully. I made this as celebration dish for my husband and I think he loved it more than I did. (Mission accomplished!) Thanks for the dish!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
So this crustless cranberry pie turned into crustless blackberry, blueberry, and exploded raspberry cake. But man oh man was it good. My grocery store did not have cranberry anything except as sauce, so we went with the berry mix, not realizing the raspberries would fall apart in stirring (even frozen!). Still, it was absolutely amazing, possibly my favorite recipe from this website yet. Highly recommond giving this a try. It's obviously foul proof!
