Glazed Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
I tried them for Christmas and they were a definite hit!! Better than other recipes that are mainly cinammon & sugar coated.

Blueberry Congealed Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
The finished product was great. Everyone loved it. Problem was, I didn't understand the bottom (?) layer, so I just inverted the jello mold and spread the cream cheese layer on top! Worked for me!!

Baked Spaghetti with Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
How easy can it get! I was worried what the kids would like and this fit the bill. I used a two pound bag of already grilled, frozen, chicken strips. I might add, the adults liked it too!

Always A Winner Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2001
Hey Debi, Was very anxious to try your recipe. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. The cost of adding 2 cans of shrimp and the fact that you wouldn't even know they were there, was not good. Also, too much celery salt and pickles for my taste. Sorry, but I did not enjoy this.

Lentil Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2001
I was so excited to try this. Well, neither my husband, my grandkids nor I would eat it. We started out trying to, but soon decided that it wasn't worth it. I'm sorry to say, I will not be making this again.

Acini di Pepe Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2001
I have tried many recipes in the past few months with much success. The reviews were so good, I looked forward to it. I made this Christmas Eve and was very disappointed. No one liked it, inclduing me. They expected it to taste like Hawaiian Salad - and the pasta turned them off! I'm sorry to say that I will not be making it again.

Baked Cranberry Almond Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2001
I brought this to a Thanksgiving dinner since I was to bring an appetizer. I really looked forward to it! I took time to decorate the crust. It looked great. My only mistake was that when I arrived I told someone to put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. It was still warm since I had made it before we left but I wanted it to tasted like "right out of the oven". Big mistake! It almost exploded and the cheese was melting out all over the place. But wonder of wonders, it still tasted great and was a hit!! Highly recommend.

Garlic Chicken And Grapes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2002
Had the girls over for a luncheon and I try to find new, interesting recipes. This one fit the bill, they all loved it and asked for the recipe. When combining sauce ingredients, do it over low heat and whisk to blend. I especially liked the flavor of the toasted sesame seeds and the grapes added an extra dimension, except when you reheat it - don't like hot grapes!!

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2002
My "meat and potatoes" man loved this dish! I can't believe we ate the whole thing, made half since there's only two of us. The taste of the carmelized onions, the balsamic vinegar and the cheese blended together beautifully to make an extraordinary pasta dish. I added additional salt and pepper at the table. Served with a plate of sliced apples and pears would've been delightful! Next time...

Substitute Whipped Cream

Reviewed: May 23, 2002
Well, indeed it is a great substitute except it will give you the worst stomachache from the high concentration of condensed air that you are pumping into it! All you're swallowing is air so don't overdue it - just be careful!

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2002
This recipe received rave reviews. I served it with apple slices and ginger snaps, as one reviewer had recommended. It went over bigger than I expected! It makes a whole ton, so make sure you're having a big crowd!

Easy Ham and Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
This recipe sounded good so I went to the pantry to see what kind of "cream of" soup I had. :( None. So I decided to concoct my own version of ham and noodles! I made a basic white sauce (butter, flour, milk) to which I added about 1-1/2 t. Dijon mustard and 2 slices of American cheese (in pieces), some salt and pepper and a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce. While boiling about 2 c. of noodles, I chopped up the leftover ham into little cubes and tossed into the white sauce. After draining the noodles, I poured the ham and sauce over them. Mixed well. Took handful of oyster crackers and put them into a plastic ziplock bag and rolled over with a can to crush. In small frying pan, I melted butter and mixed in crackers. I browned them and after scooping up a bowl of the ham and noodles, I sprinkled the crackers on top. I found that the browned cracker crumbs added a nutty flavor. It was great!! I'm on my way to get another bowlful...

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
I can't believe it! This has to be one of the best turkeys I've ever made. It was sooo moist and delectable and the skin was beautifully browned. Do not hesitate.

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
I've read every review and haven't seen the way my mother-in-law used to make the Yorkshire pudding. Here is how she always served it. Baked in a pie plate as is this recipe, but served by sprinkling sugar on top and squeezing lemon juice on top of that before cutting! I had never eaten it before so this is the only way I know it to taste. It's great! Try it, you'll like it too :)

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
Wasn't sure how good this would be but made it and was definitely not disappointed. Close your eyes and you'll think you were in a fine restaurant! Very good tasting... leftovers were just as good. Turkey sausage is sooo much better than the fatty version. No loss of flavor and so much better for you.

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
This recipe has been in our Bohemian family for generations - very similar with a few small exceptions: First, saute the onion in a bit of oil, then cover the surface of it with Hungarian hot paprika. Add a cut up whole chicken which has been salted. Stir to coat. Add the broth (or just water)and cook til chicken is tender. The biggest difference is making a small drop dumpling that we call "Hlousky". It's made with flour, egg, milk. Mix til smooth. It should be thick. Scoop up the batter with a tablespoon and using a teaspoon, spoon and drop into the boiling water. (Dip that teaspoon into the boiling hot water between scoops to clean) When they float to the top, remove, drain and add to buttered dish until all done. On each plate, pour the sour cream gravy and chicken over the hlousky and enjoy. Little bit of heaven!

Albondigas

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
This recipe appealed to me on this dark and dreary day and since I had all the ingredients, I decided to try it. I used a 4qt pot, so adjusted the other ingredients accordingly. Use our local grocery store's brand salsa which added a little spice to the soup. The meatball recipe sounded a little bland, so I seasoned that up also. With a loaf of French bread, this truly hit the spot!

Pierogi I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
Haven't tried this recipe yet and I prefer a potato dough but I'm willing to try it, sounds easier than the old fashioned way! Just wanted to add one more thing.. my favorite is the meat mixture which uses browned salted and peppered ground beef to which I've thrown in some sauteed onions, mushrooms and a bit of sauerkraut!

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I always trust allrecipes.com so I thought I'd try this recipe. I noticed some people said the roast was dry. It dawned on me that nowhere in the recipe does it tell you to add broth! Tho when you get to the last line and it says to top with onions and gravy, I'm thinkin' you're not going to get a gravy without a liquid!! I followed the recipe and after the first 30 minutes, I added a half cup of beef broth and a good splash of red wine. Now we have gravy. It tasted a little bland so I added a couple of teaspoons of Gravy Master (or Kitchen Bouquet) to give it taste and color. Excellent...NOW it's perfect!
