Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Very good! I made a few changes, though: I used apple pie filling instead of apples to make it easier, cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup (thought the filling would be pretty sweet), added about 3/4 cup of rolled oats and poured 3/4 cup of margarine over the top. The top ended up chewy and crispy. I made it for a dinner party and was asked for the recipe a number of times!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
This cake was super easy. I didn't care for it at first, so I sliced it up after a day or two and froze it. I liked it better the second time around...I think that the longer it sat, the moister it became. FYI, if you don't have buttermilk on hand, just use 1 tbsp. of cider vinegar then fill up the rest of the cup with milk and let it set for a bit and that will substitute the buttermilk.

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This is very, very good. I added the ingredients (minus the rice) and let it simmer for a couple of hours. I also added some flour and water to thicken it up a little bit. I seasoned it a bit more with some cayenne and pepper. Will make it again!

Deviled Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2001
This tasted great; however, next time I will double or even triple the sauce mixture so I will have enough left over to spoon over rice or noodles. Unfortunately, there was no sauce left over after I basted the chicken with it. My five year old loved the chicken when he finally sat down to eat it, but he complained the entire time it was cooking that it "stunk." The end product was very good, however, and I will definitely make it again!

Fish and Things Teriyaki Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
I have always doubled the marinade recipe for "Baked Teriyaki Chicken" by Marian Collins on this site when I need teriyaki sauce (that sauce has cider vinegar and has more of a bite). "Fish and Things" was a sweeter sauce and was different for us, but still was very good. I scaled this recipe back to 12 servings and used just a little less honey than was called for. One thing I wasn't prepared for was how fast it foams up when you add the honey...I wasn't ready for it and it spilled all over my stove. I will definitely make sure that doesn't happen next time :o).

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I have been making a pie like this for about ten years...almost identical to this recipe. It is very, very rich but it is one of the best pies that I have tasted. Tastes even better after a day or two in the fridge. I am not a peanut butter fiend...I imagine that my rating would be off the chart if I was. Sinful!

Christmas Casserole Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
I will admit that I am a follower when I am trying new recipes. This is the first time I have tried one that had no ratings, but these turned out great. I was a little suspect about them and how they would turn out. They weren't as hard to roll as I thought and they really stuck together as they cooled. I have no idea how the orginal recipe yielded five dozen...I got maybe two dozen; I'm sure I made them too big! They smelled heavenly in the oven and my four year old loved them. Thanks!

Cheesy Ramen Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I had nothing in my house to make as a side dish to chicken but I had plenty of noodles (ramen included!). I looked up "noodles" in Allrecipes and stumbled upon this recipe. It was really very good! I had some Velveeta that I didn't know what to do w/ in my fridge so I used that. It tasted like those packaged noodle mixes from Lipton but was WAY easier!!

Broccoli Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
My all-time favorite broccoli salad! I chop 1/4 of a small red onion and add that, too. Light Miracle Whip works well instead of regular mayo and I use either apple cider or white vinegar ~ whatever I have on hand :-).

Best Ever Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
I did several things differently, 1.) I boiled the chicken with onions, celery and a boullion cube for extra flavor, 2.) I put a layer of egg noodles on the bottom of a pan before I put the chicken mixture on top of it, and 3.) I put some Swiss cheese slices on top of the chicken mixture before I sprinkled the remaining corn flakes on top. It turned out so excellent; my whole family loved it.

Creamy Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
I can't believe I am saying such a thing, but this was reeeeealllllly sweet. It definitely needs the Cool-Whip type topping on top to balance out the super-sweet chocolate body. Easy, though, and my kids thought it was a great treat.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I used this recipe on Thanksgiving when I couldn't find my usual egg and sausage bake casserole. As others suggested, I added a small amount of milk and increased my eggs to a dozen. I also added some dry mustard (one ingredient that I could remember from my recipe), dried parsley and garlic powder. I didn't particularly care for the crescent roll crust, but everyone thought it delicious...so I am in the minority.

Pig Pickin' Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
This. Is. So. Good. My recipe calls for 1/3 cup of water, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and three large eggs (instead of four eggs and just oil) to be mixed in with the yellow cake mix. I make it in three cake pans, and frost in between the layers and on top I sprinkle pecans. It is SO pretty and ridiculously easy.

Christmas Wreaths

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I wish I would have read the reviews before I made this, because I wasn't expecting such a gooey mess. I panicked because I thought I had made a mistake, and pressed them into a square pan (like Rice Krispie bars). So...we had green bars, which was fine. The kids loved them :o). I'll know what to expect next time!

Royal Icing I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
This recipe was super easy. I used almond extract instead of the alcohol and used the frosting to decorate individual brownie bites with a ganache frosting I made (also from this site). I'll definitely use this again!

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I only had a 4 oz. bar of bittersweet chocolate but I had a 1/3 bag of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and used those and it turned out fine. It didn't dry like I would have liked and still is a little moist about 8 hours later. I used this ganache on individual brownie bites and decorated them w/ white stripes on top with a royal icing recipe. The taste is phenomenal ~ kind of like mini Hostess cupcakes and they look like they came from a bakery. I will use this recipe again because it was so tasty and easier than any frosting recipe I have ever made.

Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I added some onion, a couple of stalks of celery and one carrot. Before I put the top crust on I sprinkled celery salt (instead of regular salt), pepper and basil. I thought this was awesome, but my family grumbled about it. It was easy enough, however, and is a great recipe.

Spicy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
I took the advice of the others who tried this before to put chunks of orange peel in the stir fry to "infuse" the essence because I thought that the 1/4 cup orange peel wouldn't go over well with my family. I also added stir fry vegetables and water chestnuts. It was excellent! Easy and great for something different. Thank you!

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
I have never used Chinese Five Spice in anything before so this was a very different taste for us. I also used the "Fish and Things" teriyaki marinade, scaled the recipe back to 12 servings. I used the full 12 servings in the chicken and mixed a little more flour w/ water to thicken the sauce up... and it was pretty saucy. I agree that it tastes like something from a restaurant. I will definitely make it again!

Cheesy Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
Very tasty, especially with how easy it was. I will definitely use two cans of soup next time, though. We like to have a little gravy to spoon on top of the meat and potatoes. This didn't leave much for that! Overall, EASY and YUMMY!
