Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
This recipe took a bit of prep work, but it was well worth it according to my DH. I was planning on using cheddar cheese in the potatoes, but surprisingly I found the Dubliner Cheese at Trader Joe's. I wanted to keep the recipe as close as possible to what was submitted. I did use ground beef and skipped the cayenne pepper. Other than that I made it as listed. This is going into my recipe file and will be my go to recipe for Shepherd's Pie from now on.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
My husband really enjoyed this soup. I have a corn chowder recipe with meatballs that uses cheese whiz. I have been trying to find a recipe using real cheese. This fits the bill well and I don't have to make meatballs. The only changes I made were to double the ground beef and I halved the potatoes and used corn for the other half. My husband thought adding some green beans would also be a nice addition. This is not a healthy soup and I will not make it often, but I know it will be a nice comfort food when the need arises.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
I gave this recipe to my DIL and she tried it with the leftover meat from Thanksgiving. It was easy to throw together and it was a BIG HIT!!! We thought there would be leftovers for the next day, but that was not the case at all. The men just kept taking a little more and a little more until it was gone. Make sure to let the recipe set for awhile after you take it out of the oven. We did not have a problem with it being too runny. Just perfect!!!

Roasted Green Beans

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
Simple and easy recipe. I find I need to cook longer than the 20-25 minutes suggested. Forty five minutes seems to work better. Sometimes I also add onions and carrots. It is a nice combo for some variety.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
I have made this recipe twice. Once exactly as written and it was good. I am not one who is going to say it was the best chocolate icing I ever had, but it is a very easy to make recipe and it does come out very creamy. The second time I made it I used more cocoa (thought it was too sweet the first time), used whole milk, (I didn't have evaporated), and did not sift the flour and cocoa. Not sifting did not seem to have any effect on the smoothness or creaminess of this icing. This is a keeper, that is for sure.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Absolutely Awesome!!! Loved it. I never expected to enjoy this dish as much as I did. I get a box of organic fruits and veggies delivered every other week. Yesterday there was a bunch of chard, which I don't normally cook with. I came on All Recipes and looked up recipes and decided on this one. I used veggie broth instead of wine and did add some cannellini beans to make it more substantial.Just before serving I added some fresh ground pepper. When my DH tried it and liked it, I knew I had a winner on my hands. Will definitely be making again!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
This is a great recipe, but I assemble a bit differently. Typically I double or triple this recipe. I assemble with three layers and do not add the cheese to the cream sauce. I layer a third of the potatoes, sauce, chopped onion (rather than rings) and sprinkle with sharp grated cheddar cheese. I repeat with a second layer of potatoes. Lastly I place the third layer of potatoes on top and pour the remaining sauce on top of the potatoes. Then I shave some butter and dot the top layer with the butter. I use between 1-3 Tablespoons of butter, depending how many potatoes I have made used in the recipe. We prefer using redskins to russets. This recipe is a hit at our Easter and Christmas dinners.

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I made this recipe as is except for using a 10 oz. package of mushrooms. When completed I took half of the mixture and added fresh spinach and cooked until it was wilted. The other half I left alone. I am surprised this recipe gets four stores as written. It is a very bland recipe. I would definitely add double the mushrooms and play around with some herbs. If you like plain foods without spices, you will probably like this. If you like more flavor, this recipe will probably not cut it for you. The half with the spinach was definitely better, but it still needed some other flavors to spice it up a bit. For those saying the mixture was too soupy, you need to cook the quinoa and chicken broth longer. I cooked mine for 20 minutes and it was perfect.

Quinoa Almond Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This is a great quinoa recipe, and simple to prepare. I loved it!!! It is an easy recipe to add or subtract ingredients according to your likes and dislikes. I didn't have raisins so skipped those. I could tell by the seasonings amounts that I would want more so I upped them to 1/2 tsp each except the salt. Probably could use even more. I didn't even add salt except with the quinoa and will decrease the salt the next time I make this. I decreased the olive oil to 1 tablespoon and that was plenty. I am trying to add more G-Bomb veggies to my diet, so I added some fresh spinach and mushrooms!! I recommend adding more tomatoes. I think this recipe definitely needs something green to make it look more appealing. The spinach did the trick! I will surely be making this again. Thanks Ann for a great recipe!!!

Honey Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Just didn't enjoy this recipe. Followed the recipe as written, but we did not find this suited our taste buds. I prefer roasting carrots without the honey and that way you taste the natural sweetness of the carrots. The honey really masks the natural sweetness.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This was a hit. Did not have Swiss so used additional cheddar. Skipped the onion because of children eating it. Will make again. No need for additional salt if using the processed cheese food. That will add all the salt you need. Very easy and tasty recipe.

Slow Cooker Lentil Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
As so many others stated, the liquid proportions are way off to call this a soup.(Perhaps a typo??) However, I am still giving it a four star rating, because the flavor is just what I was looking for. Having to add extra broth (which I chose over water) was no big deal. I would have liked more spices, but I was serving this to children and needed to keep it more bland. For those liking a spicier lentil soup, you will want to add a few of your favorite spices. I did not add mushrooms, once again, because I was serving this to children. I will definitely be making this again, just knowing I will add much more broth. Actually I think I will use one cup rice and one cup lentils and then go from there.

Italian Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This was really enjoyed by the adults that ate it, but not by the children. They couldn't get past the zucchini in the soup, so they ended up eating the lentil soup I had made for me. (I am a vegetarian). The only change I made was to substitute cubed chicken for the kidney beans. ( I thought the kidney beans would turn off the children) All in all a great recipe that was loved by all the adults who tried it. Will definitely make again.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Excellent filling!!! Since I had no idea how much lemon juice the poster of this recipe really used, I went with 2/3 cups and it was just the way I like it...on the tarter side. For the crust I reduced the ingredients by 1/4 and used a 9 x 9 pan to get a thicker filling. Next time I will probably make even less crust. All in all a great recipe.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Very easy recipe to make with great results. I did divide the white flour into half white and half whole wheat to make it a bit healthier. Also cut the butter to one cup. I also used six cups of fruit. Next time I will use twelve cups of fruit. I just felt the six cups was not enough.. I can't imagine what it would be like with 4.5 cups as the recipes calls for. I found the crisp on both the top and bottom was nice, but it definitely needs more fruit in the middle.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Gave it four stars because I made a couple of adjustments. Instead of lemon juice I used balsamic vinegar and I skipped the crushed bay leaves. This turned out very well and even my DH, who isn't fond of this kind of dish, tried and really enjoyed it. I put it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the veggies a bit. It is a forgiving recipe as you can use whatever vegetable you like/have on hand.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I gave this recipe four stars because I decided to use the suggestions of others and increase the flour by 1/4 cup and added 1/2 tsp. baking powder. With these modifications, these cookies came out wonderful. I baked them on air bake cookie sheets so I increased the temperature to 380 degrees. I baked them for 9 minutes. Two days later they are still nice and chewy, just the way I like them.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I followed the directions except skipped the salt, and my guests just thought it was okay. I usually make a breaded, baked pork chop, and they much prefer that recipe. It smelled good, but that as about it.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Bread is tasty, but as some others mentioned I think it needs a bit more salt, although some of my guests thought it was fine as is. I used the ingredients as written, but prepared it the traditional way of dissolving the yeast in the water. Once the bread was prepared, I let it rise for a couple of hours before baking. It turned out well. I did not use the full amount of flour as called for and next time will not use more than 2 cups. I think this will help solve some of the denseness issues.

Boston Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Only change I made was to use butter instead of shortening in the cake. The cake was a big hit for New Year's. I have made several different recipes over the years, and this is our favorite. As others have mentioned, use a whisk when making the puddding to smooth out any lumps that may form. I put plastic wrap on top of the pudding while it cooled to avoid a skin forming. I am not sure if this was necessary, but didn't want to take any chances. The icing turned out great!!!
