Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Very good, I used chicken tenderloins so I didn't have to cut anything. I added some hot sauce in with the egg mixture for some added kick. They still weren't very spicy, next time I'll add more.

Texas Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Yum-O! Glad I've found another "something different" recipe to add to the rotation. I added some bacon I had on hand that I crumbled up, and used the stove top instead of baking them. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet & Spicy too (like another reviewer suggested) and highly recommend that brand of sauce.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
I hated Salmon Patties growing up, my Mother would just add onions and saltines - YUCK! But now having made this recipe twice I feel like I've found the BEST way to take a can of Salmon and turn it into something that is actually quite tasty and comforting to eat. Changes I made were simply in adding a few more ingredients, being two jalapenos that I minced with the onion and garlic (actually in my food processor), some Old Bay seasoning, splash of fresh lemon juice, 1/8 cup of cheese, which was an Italian Blend as that was what I had. I left out the dill though. And since I burn everything I try to fry, I opted to broil them, 8 minutes on each side. More healthy and they weren't greasy. I served these patties on a toasted wheat bun with mayo, mustard and tomato. Yum-O!

Camp Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I have made a dish similiar to this before but couldn't find the recipe for it, so I turned to Allrecipes.com for help and this recipe best fit the one I had used in the past. I followed other reviewers advice and cut back on the sugar, using a little less than 1/4 cup. I added some jarred jalapenos and onions that I finely chopped. I cooked my in a slightly smaller dish than the recipe called for, thus cooking it about 7 minutes more. Elewise I followed the recipe as written. Very tasty, will add to my collection.

Four Layer Delight

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
I was looking for a "butterscotch torte" recipe that was similiar to a dessert I had at a local deli. This recipe is very close to what it was. I took the other reviewers advice too and used a package of pecan sandies for the crust. I used a stick of butter with the whole package and baked it at 350 for probably 12 minutes or so. Next time I will double the cream cheese layer as it didn't seem to be quite enough, and I will use a whole container of whip topping on the top.

Cream Cheese Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
These were good - next time I will try and improve them a little more by adding bacon and minced chives or green onions like some of the other reviewers suggested.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
I think you need to either increase the pretzel amount or decrease the amount of butter for this recipe. I ended using 2 1/2 cups pretzels after my first crust came out liquidized and pretzels floating around. The only other change in ingredients I made was throwing in some blueberries just for the color since it's the Fourth of July. I followed other reviewers suggestion and let the jello set up for 30 minutes prior to putting it on the cream cheese layer. Also, due to time restrictions, I put the crust in the freezer while I made the cream cheese layer, which let it harden and the cream cheese went on smoothly. I put it back in the freezer while the jello set up in the refrigerator, and the cream cheese was slightly hard which allowed the jello to go on smooth and not move the cream cheese around. This dessert went over very well at the office party - I was suprised that even the men liked it.

Chili Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Thanks MeHungry98 for a wonderful recipe!! I didn't even bother looking for the "chili sauce" as described - when I saw the recipe I already knew what I was going to use. I have a wonderful baked bean recipe that uses a can of "Hot Dog Chili Sauce" which is used to add to your own meat mixture to create chili for hot dogs. I love the flavor it adds to the baked beans so I wanted to use 1/3 cup of it for the chili sauce needed in this recipe. I used probably about the same amount of both hamburger and italian sausage. I had grill issues so I ended up broiling them. Not from North Carolina originally, but here "all the way" is mustard, chili, slaw and onions. After some time I have aquired the taste for this type of burger, minus the slaw. So I served these "Chili Burgers" with a slice of Velvetta cheese, Hot Dog Chili, onions and mustard for mine, Ketchup for my husbands. On the side I used a recipe for potato skins from this site. Definately an artery clogger but we don't eat this way everyday so once in a while is ok. Husband Loved these burgers - Really loved the italian sausage and hamburger mixture. That's what I use in my meatloaf so I knew it'd be a hit. He called it a d*mn good hamburger.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This was wonderful. I sprinkled both sides of the fish with Old Bay prior to broiling. I used Krafts Italian Blends for the cheese. Problems I ran into: My oven has low and high settings on the broiler. Wasn't sure which to use, I went with Low and it turned out to be the right choice. I broiled both sides for 3 minutes. When I put the cheese on top, the fish was already fully cooked before the cheese had properly melted. Next time I will decrease the cooking time to 2 minutes per side. Also, I misread the recipe and use the whole mixture for 2 fillets instead of 4. Since I served it with Butter & Herb rice, it was a little too buttery tasting after the fact. Next time I will half recipe. I'm excited to try this again next week, with what I've learned I know it will be even more delicious!

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This was pretty good. Nice addition to the collection - since we eat a lot of chicken, it's nice to have several different varieties of recipes to choose from. I started to buy fresh herbs but I would have had $10 tied up in them, and only one use. So I used dried like others suggested. It wasn't quite as moist as I was hoping, but I think it was because I didn't get quite enough juice out of my lemon. I'd love to try this with fresh herbs so I'm considering growing my own herb garden.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I first ate this several years ago, and made it soon after from memory based off what the woman who made it told me. I never wrote it down, and ended up forgetting what was in in. So I was very excited to find this recipe on allrcipes.com. It's out of this world!! One recommendation: Remove all of the foil from the frosting container, and heat the container until the frosting is slightly melted. You can then pour the frosting on top of the graham crackers and spread it easier. The frosting will set up after you put it in the refrigerator. Just be careful to not overheat the chocolate.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I hate pumpkin pie, can't stand it - but this cake is AWESOME!! I have officially declared I will never made another pumpkin pie but will make this from here on out. I didn't use this recipe but used one out of a Betty Crocker Cookbook - everything was the same except the cookbook called for Betty Crocker brand Golden Vanilla cake mix. I highly recommend anyone trying this recipe for the first time use this cake mix instead of plain yellow cake mix as the Golden Vanilla has a wonderful vanilla flavor that I think will take an already exceptional recipe and take it out of this world. Friends have asked me to make another one but use sweet potato instead of pumpkin. Another friend suggest drizzling the Smuckers Caramel ice cream topping on top with whip cream.

Little Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
I haven't made this exactly by the recipe, but I took several ideas from it plus reviewers comments and personalized it into my own, altering the meatloaf recipe I already had. First, I love making the individual loaves - they cook SO MUCH faster. Second, I had never thought of adding sausage, I now use 1 pound Neese's Hot Sausage (Neese's is available in NC and VA, maybe other areas) and 1 pound lean ground beef. Third, one of the reviewers comments of adding barbeque sauce led me try it myself, using my favorite Sweet Baby Ray's. Add about 1/2 cup to the meat mixture and top with the sauce. Fourth, adding italian seasons was a winner with me. Other alterations, I used bread crumbs instead of crackers, added green pepper, omited parmesan cheese & milk. My husband thinks this is the best meatloaf hands down he has ever put in his mouth. Have made it for others and they raved as well. I call it modern meatloaf :)

Raspberry Coconut Layer Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I made this last night but left off the semi sweet chocolate and opted to only use white chocolate. It was easy to make and very pretty. It was extremely rich though, a tad too much for my taste. I think the preserves I used were to blame though, will try again with different toppings.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
Awesome recipe!! Some changes I made: Like one of the other reviewers suggested, I used "Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Beef" recipe from this site in place of ground beef. I used 2 cups salsa since that's what I had, added some jalapeno for additional spiciness, used Garlic Powder instead of salt since that was also all I had. I put enchilada sauce on top, only because I had an extra can from my last mexican fiesta that I wanted to use up. This was similar to a dish I get at La Hacienda, local mexican joint in High Point, NC called Chimichangas Supreme. Next time I make this to make it more like that dish I will use beef tips and put melted cheese on top after complete. Contrary to what another reviewer stated, I think these make EXCELLENT leftovers, just had last nights for lunch today and will finish up the rest for dinner tonight. Still ended up freezing some of the mixture for next time. Recipe is definately a keeper - thanks for adding to my amazing mexican dish recipes.

Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I made several alterations to this recipe based on other reviewers comments. I used a bag of frozen white corn, 2 tablespoons butter, 3/4 package cream cheese, 2 jalapenos and 2 cloves garlic. It wasn't great, wasn't bad, my husband didn't like it but I thought it was ok. I'll make it again but with much less cream cheese, as I felt it was overbearing. I originally intended to use 3 jalapenos but chickened out while chopping, only using 2, but felt like it could have used more. I think jalapenos loose some flavor and spiciness during cooking. Definately unique and has potential, but not as recipe is posted, not for my taste atleast. I will use more spices next time, probably chili powder and cumin.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
I've made these beans several times now and they're awesome! Next time I'll try adding chicken broth like another reviewer posted. I used them in a quick and simple burrito recipe I've made up, about 2 cups worth of these beans, all the chicken from a rotissery chicken shredded, and 8 ounces of pepper jack cheese. Wrap mixture up in flour tortillas and top with enchilada sauce. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or so, until bubbly.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Finally I found the basic macaroni and cheese recipe like my mother made - baked! It was great - but like others posted, next time I'm using WAY more cheese.
