Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
These were great! Did not use the butter on the topping and really did not measure anything except the heavy cream - used 3 slices bacon and simply sprinkled a small amount of crumbs and freshly grated Roma cheese over top. Really enhanced the flavor of brussels sprouts - if you don't care for them, remember they are the main ingredient in this dish!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
Did not think the sauce really added anything to the asparagus. They were good from roasting, but salt was really all we tasted other than the flavor of the asparagus themselves

Poppyseed Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
A very good substitute for store bought dressing. Made as directed, juicing the onion in the blender for the onion juice, but did not strain the juice, just measured straight into the mix. Thanks for sharing.

Cheesy Thumbprint Appetizers with Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
These were quite tasty. They definitely need to cool completely before they are eaten, as they taste too floury until they are cooled. Next time, will probably add cayenne to the cracker mixture as, even with the "hot" pepper jelly, we wished for more spice. Thanks for sharing.

Easy, No-Bake Nutella® Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Quite yummy. Made my own chocolate cookie crust from a no-bake one on this site and made fresh whipped cream to replace the cool whip. Awesomely decadent - special occasion only, as it is quite calorie and fat laden, especially with the changes!

Mock Chocolate Cookie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Great and easy crust. I do lower the sugar to 1 cup, though, and careful about that temp and cooking time or it will harden - still yummy, but almost impossible to slice!

Spicy Pimento Cheese Sandwiches with Avocado and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
This flavor combination is wonderful! I fixed the cheese mixture beforehand, and we split a sandwich for breakfast a couple of days during the Christmas holidays. I did sub onion powder for the onion and Miracle Whip for the mayo and left out the jalapeño, so doubled the cayenne. Delicious - thanks for sharing

Special Occasion Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I made a lot of changes and am rating for what was created thereby so it will show me in the future one of my top rated recipes. Here's how it came out: cut it in half, as there were just two of us; couldn't find scallops, so excluded them but did not increase the other seafoods. Used 4 baby bellas for the mushrooms and sautéed them with 4 green onions and 2 garlic cloves in butter for about 30 minutes. Had large frozen shrimp and thawed and dried with paper towels before adding them to the sautéed mix and continuing to sauté an additional 3 minutes before adding the crabmeat and removing from heat. Melted 3 tablespoons of butter and added 2 tablespoons of flour before adding a cup of heavy cream (in place of broth) and left out the wine. Put seafood mix in a buttered casserole, covered with the cream sauce and topped with freshly grated provolone then roma cheeses. Put all this together early in the day and refrigerated until dinner time. Removed from fridge while oven heated and cooked 15 minutes. Absolutely one of the best dishes we've enjoyed. A side of oven roasted asparagus went very well with this. Thanks for sharing and giving me the courage to try this yummy dish

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
This is really delicious. Kudos to all the reviewers who had such wonderful suggestions too - we added: 1/2 tsp ground cloves; doubled the nutmeg and cinnamon; halved the oil; used 3/4 cup brown and 1/2 cup white sugars; an extra 1/4 cup applesauce; a peeled and minced gala apple; a tsp vanilla; sprinkled the pan with sugar and cinnamon mixture after spraying with pam; used 1 cup white and 1 cup white wheat flour; and, sprinkled brown sugar and cinnamon over the top of the loaves before cooking. This made 3 mini loaf pans which were filled 3/4 full and rose perfectly while cooking to come slightly over the top of the pan. Not sure how long the cooking was - maybe 40 minutes before the toothpick test came out right. Wonderful for sharing with friends and family. Thanks for submitting this healthy (except for the sugars) and delicious (because of the sugars?) recipe for us to try!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
This is AWESOME! Hamburger steaks are one of dh's favorite dishes, so we have them regularly - they have never come out as tender with such good gravy as this tho. Next time I will attempt to double the gravy (did double the Worcestershire) and hope it comes out as tasty. Did not add the flour or salt, and cooked, covered, in the oven at 175 for several hours after browning. Thank you so much for sharing!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
These are a bit of every flavor, if you add chocolate chips, as we did. Cut the white sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 cup almond butter and used crunchy peanut butter. Only used 1/2 teaspoon salt and added an extra half cup of oatmeal, a teaspoon of vanilla and about 10 ounces of mini chocolate chips. Thanks for sharing

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
Used cream of chicken in place of cream of mushroom, as dh won't eat mushrooms. Used 1/2 can cream and 1/2 can water and, of course, left out the mushrooms -would have used fresh anyway. Used lean stew meat (already cut up). Served over a baked potato. Nice, easy, tummy warming meal. Thanks for sharing.

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
A simple recipe for one of the simplest pie crusts. Made my own crumbs with mostly graham crackers and a handful of shortbread cookies we had on hand. Refrigerated overnight before filling with key lime pie ingredients - which cooked for 30 minutes at 375 and made the crust even more delicious. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Used the advice of Shrae1 and the tip shared by them as well - didn't have key limes, so used a half cup of juice of 5 lemons and a half cup of juice from 6 limes (wonderful hint). Added that to the 4 egg yolks and blended well before incorporating 2 cans of Eagle Brand condensed milk. Had made a no-bake graham cracker crust found on this site, using a handful of butter cookies as part of the crumbs. My crust was made in my deep dish pie pan, so even with the extra can of condensed milk and double juice, it fit nicely. Cooked at a preheated 375 for 30 minutes and it came out exactly as we like it!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
Easy and tasty. One of the best ways to enjoy cabbage. Did not measure anything, just used a head of cabbage, probably a little more than 1/4 cup onion, no water, sugar or vinegar.

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Nice to see this healthy recipe here - so good. Really dislike seeing people rate a recipe even though they don't even like the main ingredient - and chose to make it even with that ingredient the lead in the title! Really a head scratcher. . .

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Good basic recipe for fried rice. Gonna give it a try with quinoa. I do not know how the submitter could have made it plainer that the rice needs to be chilled, but apparently some folks don't read directions well?

Chef John's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
We made muffins with this - got 14 large ones. Sprayed the paper muffin liners with cooking spray. Added cinnamon and grated nutmeg to the flour mix. Did not use nuts. Used more than 1/4 tsp vanilla and slightly more than 1/3 cup chocolate chips - used mostly mini chips. Took just 22 minutes to cook at 350 (directions shared by Sarah Jo -thanks!). As with most of Chef John's recipes shared here, this was easy and delicious.
