Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
This is delicious!! I made it with an Italian cheese blend (its what I had on hand), but I think next time I am going to follow the recipe closer and use just parmesan, meunster, and feta it calls for. The mozzarella in the blend was a bit much for this dish. I also think I may add some fresh basil, I think it would really give this dish the final "oomph." Really, really tasty though, and I am happy I found something we all like with eggplant beyond Eggplant Parmesan. I'm going to play with this a little, but its definitely getting added to the rotation!

Mediterranean Turkey Pita Fold

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I only loosely followed this recipe, but we really enjoyed it. I opted for a "real" tzaziki sauce, and seasoned my turkey with a a Greek seasoning recipe I found here on allrecipes. I did use the suggested fillings listed here though (except I forgot the feta...darn it!), and absolutely love the concept --totally low-fat and flavorful! We will be having it again because it was very tasty.

Greek Seasoning

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This made some very flavorful ground turkey pitas, however, I had to add a LOT more garlic powder (didn't have the flakes). I'm thinking next time I will just omit the garlic powder, and add 2 cloves of minced garlic to what I am cooking. I just think fresh would go a lot farther than flakes or powder. All in all though, this is the most authentic seasoning I have tried yet, so kudos to the creator!

Oven Fried Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I make something very similar to this often. My proportions of ingredients are a bit different, and I add in Italian seasoning. If you want to cut unneccessary trans- and saturated fats, and up the "good" fats (poly- and monounsaturated), then opt for olive or canola oil in place of the veg oil. I love fried chicken, but I hate that its usually so drenched in bad fats, so this is a great alternative.

Rice Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This really looked tasty, but to me, it ended up tasting like a ranch dressing packet stirred into rice. It had a lot of flavor, but just not the flavor I was looking for at all. Nobody in my family finished their helping.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
We really thought this recipe was only "okay." The dip and the fish were both good alone, but we didn't think they worked together all that well. I am going to try the leftover dip on a wrap tomorrow, but unfortunately, I don't think I am going to be making this one again.

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
This recipe redeemed me after a really bad batch of cornbread! It made way more than my family of 4 could eat, so next time I am going to half the recipe. But it was quite tasty as a side to my chili, and my kids want me to make it again.

London Broil

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I made this in a crockpot, and it really wasn't bad. I'm not giving it a 5, because I don't think it was great, but it wasn't bad. While cooking, the garlic and spices smelled awful, but in the end it tasted okay, which was a relief. I cubed it up and used it in a beef pot pie the following day, and it tasted great in the pie. I just wasn't totally thrilled with it on its own.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This is a great, easy dough! As suggested, I added some oregano and basil to the dough, and I think it helped. I had the same issue with it being a bit too soft (almost soggy) when baked, but I think if just the crust was baked for 5 minutes before adding toppings (a cookbook I have suggests this, and it does help it crisp), that would take care of the problem. My kids LOVED being able to help with the pizza, so I have a feeling I will be making this a lot!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
These are delicious! And I love that they're so easy too! I didn't have any eggs on hand, so I just upped the amount of milk to 1 3/4 cups, and it worked just as well. I think the frosting could be a bit thinner, but that's just personal preference. But it does yield enough for 2 batches, which is a time-saver the second time around. These are a great breakfast for company, or just our family. Very yummy and foolproof. No wonder its got such a consistently high rating!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I have made this a few times, and I really like it - its hearty and tasty. I have, however, changed a few things up. Instead of using 2 separate pots, I saute the onion and celery (and I add a clove of minced garlic) in the butter, then stir in the flour to make a roux, then add in the broth. I just don't like unneccessary steps and extra dirty dishes. (Call me lazy if you want...) I also use less onion (about 1/2 an onion, as opposed to a whole one) and more celery (3 ribs instead of 1). And, as some others suggested, I use half and half in place of milk to make it creamier. Even without modifying though, its still a good soup with lots of flavor.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I have made this many times now, and haven't had a bad loaf yet. This is really good bread and quite versatile - it tastes great for sandwiches, toast, or just plain.

Maple Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This got rave reviews at Thanksgiving dinner! I had never made cranberry sauce before, and was shocked to see how easy it was. I picked this recipe because it looked unique and sweet, and it was both. The maple didn't overpower the sauce, and I thought it was the perfect balance of tart and sweet. And the maple gave it a really unique undertone. I thought this was great, and plan to make it often for holiday meals. I suggest though, using a higher quality syrup. I have made it with 3 different kinds of syrup, and the better the syrup quality, the better the sauce has turned out. Cheap syrup doesn't do it justice.

Rosemary French Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
This bread is awesome in taste - by far the one of tastiest ones I have tried on allrecipes so far! But, my loaf fell both times I made it. The first time I cut it into small pieces before serving so no one could tell, and it was devoured in no time. But the second time, it fell, and came out rock-hard. I ate 2 pieces, then threw the rest out. I like the taste, but think I have given up on this one. I just can't rely on a bread that falls time and time again, or comes out a brick. I'm disappointed.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
While this is very good, and went over big at a potluck, I am not convinced its much different than any other homemade spinach dip I've tried. I doubled the spinach in mine - it just didn't seem like enough to me. I also would suggest to others adding some extra mayo and/or cutting back on the sour cream because if it sits out long (any more than an hour), it gets soupy.

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
These taste amazing, and the filling is very easy to make. I got rave reviews when I took them to a potluck. However (and the reason I am docking a point), they are extremely tedious to fill, and took much longer than 40 minutes to make! If I make these again, I will probably use slightly larger tomatoes, because the filling is so good that I think they still would taste great in a bigger tomato. I just don't feel like spending so much time stuffing them in tiny tomatoes again. Definitely 5-star worthy on taste though!

Drumsticks with Peach and Honey

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
We didn't care much for this recipe. Of course, I didn't have ginger or the lemon (hubby doesn't like them anyway), so maybe that's the problem. Also, the garlic at that heat got burnt. Still, it had a wierd combo of flavors for our liking. Hubby and the kids wouldn't even touch the peaches because they said the sauce made them taste wierd. Also, I found eating drumsticks through such a sticky sauce messy and tedious. I really wanted to like this, but didn't really. Unfortunately, I won't be trying it again.

Brigid's Blackberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This was pretty good. The filling is delicious, but a little too sweet for my taste. And I really think the pre-made crust detracts from the taste. I will try making this again sometime with a homemad crust and scaling back the sugar in the filling. Otherwise though, a good recipe.
