Black Eyed Susan Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I have made black eyed pea salads in the past that had a lot more ingredients and weren't nearly as tasty as this one. I can't wait to give this one a try in the summer when I can use leftover corn on the cob in place of frozen corn. The dressing definitely MUST sit for several hours, I tasted it two hours after making it and feared for the worst. After four hours, it tasted delicious and gets better as it sits.

Chops with Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
These pork chops were delicious and easy to make. I had boneless pork loin chops from Schwanns. Having read previous reviews saying the meat was tasteless, I browned mine in bacon fat with onions. I then followed the recipe to the tee - except I had no brown sugar so used a bit of molasses. The chops were tender and flavorful, the combination of sauerkraut with applesauce was delicious and the kraut still tasted like kraut with something extra. I did not rinse my sauerkraut although I did drain it. Served mine with mashed potatoes but think this would go well with pierogies or spaetzle.

Prosciutto and Parmesan Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
I made these very differently than the recipe called for, but thank the author for the inspiration. I used 1/2 pound shaved brown sugar ham (you could use honey or even virginia ham or something), and shredded swiss. What I did that was different was I whisked together the dijon mustard with two spoons of seedless raspberry preserves, spreading this on the bottom. That bit of sweetness went great with the ham and sharp swiss. I'm glad I thought these up they were great.

Pink Sauce Beef Tips

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2002
This was a really good meal. I made it on a Saturday night, good because it takes a little time to cook. I made a from scratch alfredo sauce. I also used vodka instead of marsala wine, because vodka was what I had. It turned out really good. Vermicelli was a little fine for the beef, I would suggest linguine or fetuchine. I also would suggest simmering the meat for about 45 minutes, I only did it for 15-20 minutes, and it wasn't that tender. Good though, and the kids liked the pink sauce.

The Best Banana Pudding

Reviewed: May 29, 2006
This was a delicious and easy banana pudding. I added one 8 oz can of crushed pineapple to my first layer of bananas, which is minimally detectable and gives the pudding a nice depth of flavor. My family had this packed away in no time.

Creamy Dreamy Chicken and Spirals Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I thought this casserole was rich and delicious. I served this up for a Sunday dinner, adding mushrooms and broccoli florets to the casserole to round it out. The cheese sauce was comforting but was different than normal due in part to the wine. I used penne pasta, and would recommend a tube pasta with ridges to hold and soak in the cheese sauce. This doubled easily and the leftovers were just as tasty.

Chicken-Stuffed Shells with Sherry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
The only mistake I made in attempting this meal was being overly ambitious on a weeknight - I was in the kitchen much too long tonight, but it was worth it. I bought the Gruyere, it was expensive but worth it, sharp and delicious - it does not taste like swiss cheese to me more a cross between swiss and sharp provolone. I too chose to use marsala wine instead of sherry, I think marsala is not as strong and the substitution was delicious. My sauce needed a lot of thinning from chicken stock, the roux stayed in roux form once i added the liquids slowly... it seized right back up. Delicious, even if it took a while and dirtied a lot of dishes.

Bacon-Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
I have been trying different salad dressings off of allrecipes for quite a while now. Of all the ones I have tried, this recieved the most positive reviews, from my entire family. There were a lot of flavors going on but the lite sour cream created a light, creamy taste and texture. I appreciated the bacon flavor, which came from very little bacon (just one piece), so much flavor came from deglazing the pan with the orange juice, I was shocked. This was the perfect amount to dress a salad for four people, and believe it or not all of the salad was gone at the end of the meal, rare indeed. The combo of sweet, tangy and smoky is a definite keeper.

Chicken and Sausage with Bowties

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
This is a hearty but quickly prepared pasta dinner that tasted like I put a lot more effort into cooking than I did. I love the flavors of sausage and chicken together, and thought it was great to use turkey sausage instead of pork sausage for the sake of good health. I used a little bit of tomato paste to thicken my sauce, and doubled everything so we'd have plenty of leftovers. I added several other seasonings including a bit of marjoram, oregano, onion powder, sugar (to cut the salty taste of canned tomato), and a pinch of allspice - all of which made this sauce taste delicious and slow cooked. I also used ziti with lines instead of bowties - we don't like farfalle much. Everything was delicious and everyone's looking forward to taking leftovers to work tomorrow!

Peanut Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Awesome coleslaw, I used cabbage mix from the bag, and thought the combination of the crunch of cabbage and peanuts, creaminess of the dressing with the tang of the mustard all went really well together. Don't skimp on the peanuts, they make this. Everyone that had this raved about how it will be especially tasty this summer.

Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
This recipe is exactly like the one I use to make this casserole at home, and I find it to be one of the quickest meals I can throw together. Instead of putting the cheese on top, I instead butter the tops of the slices of marble rye, and place the cheese under it. The rye crisps up and gives a nice presentation, the cheese melts into the casserole, and I don't have to do anything with it while it bakes - I essentially pop it in for 30 minutes and I'm done.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
My grandmother made this dessert for us and I always loved it, especially good for the summer! I recently made this recipe and almost think next time I might add another box of pudding so as to make those layers a bit thicker. Also, my grandmother made this extra special by making a batch of fudge to spread over the top and harden.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
A mainstay of mine these are marvelously simple and off the charts good with tangy or spicy mustard to balance the sweet. Use good quality bacon as it is such a major player in the flavor. Can't imagine Super Bowl without these puppies.

Maple Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I'm not a lover of marinated chicken, especially at the end of summer when I've gotten tired of grilled chicken. This marinade was excellent. Not only was it easy to prepare, it permeated the meat and added nice flavor after only 2 hours of marinating, and all of the flavors complemented each other without one flavor being overpowering. I was afraid this would be too sweet but the maple syrup added subtle sweetness. Make sure to use real maple syrup. This was excellent, the only change I made was to use one clove of garlic. Will definitely keep on file!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Cornbread couldn't have gotten any easier, it came out moist with a great texture, and came together fast. I like mine a little sweet without losing the cornmeal texture traditional cornbread has, and this recipe did the trip.

Tzatziki II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2001
Where I live there is this delicious Greek restaurant that is famous for this dip. They serve it with hot pita bread and feta cheese and it is excellent. This stuff tasted just like it, took me ten minutes to throw together, and kids don't even realize that their eating cucumber, onion and garlic. I used parsley instead of mint. This is a keeper!

Straccetti

Reviewed: May 18, 2003
I thought this recipe was very easy and flavorful. I was afraid of the recipe list because I thought it would be a budget buster, but it turned out to be not so bad. I added some balsamic vinegar when I added mushrooms, which I think improves the flavor. I would definitely try to thicken the sauce next time though, perhaps with some cornstarch. I used strip steaks, I would double the amount of meat called for if you're feeding a family, but the marinade was great and the meat was tender. The whole dish was very unique and certainly worth my while.

Broccoli Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: May 19, 2003
Now that it is spring time and families hit the concert/baseball game/awards dinner rush that accompanies the end of the school year, I find it difficult to make a meal that tastes good and demands little of me. Usually soup and sandwiches, consists of condensed soup and bologna. Tonight I made this soup, it tasted great, demanded hardly anything of me and I didn't feel rushed making it. Nice and thick, I added an additional spoon of cornstarch, and also another half cup of cheese, definitely looking forward to trying this with the carrot as well.

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
This was ridiculously easy and relatively fast, most of my ingredients were already on hand, and the taste was interesting and a big hit with adults and kids. I served this with pita triangles and crackers, and it went over really well. A great option because of its ease and taste.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: May 23, 2005
I have the best luck with soups from this website. This was delicious, easy and filling. The whole family enjoyed it. I may try elbow noodles in place of the potatoes to make my life a little easier (less chopping), a great weeknight throw-together dinner. This soup is rich enough to stand alone, and economical to boot.
