Chocolate Martini a la Laren

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Oh my gosh.. its not often i've had a seriously terrible drink.. but this one is just that in my honest opinion. I'm not a huge fan of martini's anyways, but i figured a chocolate one might be decadent and delicious...all you could taste was strong liquor- almost overpowering. i used vanilla vodka for extra flavoring, choc syrup lined in the glass and a shot of half and half per suggestion of other reviewers, thinking this would calm down the heavy liquor taste. no way. I won't be making, or experimenting with this recipe again.

Mexican Style Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I was quite disappointed given some of the great reviews here. I followed the recipe exactly and even threw in some chopped onion and southwest chipotle seasoning for extra flavor. We had it in tacos with tomato cilantro and cheese garnish. It was extremely bland and lacking flavor. I was surprised even after using the entire bottle of chipotle sauce. I won't make this again.

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I have to say using the thyme made the chicken have excellent flavor, and all in all this was an ok dish. I found it extremely hard to pound out chicken breasts that thin, and then rolling everything up to be even more of a challenge. Even after using toothpicks to secure the sides and hold everything together, the presentation was pretty awful, and the insides still oozed out. I used provolone cheese(do not like swiss) and only italian bread crumbs and butter for the coating (which turned out very soggy and mushy-even after the recipe took 20 minutes longer than stated in the directions) I thought it would be sort of crispy. The over all flavor of the chicken and ingredients was pretty good, but the time consuming prep and ugly presentation is a deal breaker for me. =(

This was pretty good. put in stuffed shells and topped with homemade tomato basil sauce and mozzarella cheese. Made enough filling to do two full meals, froze the second one for another time.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I've made these about 10 times since I saved the recipe, and its the most requested recipe I ever get. Theres never any leftovers! However, I always double the recipe, and even then I don't use the entire .7 ounce package of dry italian seasoning, if so the flavor is way too strong! I can't imagine using the whole thing with only 1 block of cream cheese. I also add garlic and onion powder to the mix, and sprinkle a little paprika on top when they are done. Awesome!! =)

Weeknight Lasagne Toss

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Wow!So much faster than the usual layered lasagna, but tastes just as good if not better! I was honestly impressed. I threw in a small can of mushrooms,diced up an onion also.. and I did the extra step with ricotta cheese (I think this is what makes the dish so great) I will be printing this, and keeping it in my allrecipes binder for continued use!! =)

Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Beer

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
Although i'm not a huge sauerkraut fan, this was pretty good. I too read other reviews and decided to brown the sausage for about 5 minutes first, then add some sauteed onions and garlic. Used 2 cans of 14oz sauerkraut instead of recommended amount (didn't seem like enough) Coors Light beer, a splash of dijon mustard, splash of honey, and simmered on low for about 5.5 hours. Pretty good!!

Easy Lemon Cake Cookies with Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
These were great! very light and airy. I will add that putting the cookies on foil- covered sheet pan did not exactly work, I just lightly sprayed a cookie sheet with cooking spray and baked exactly 10 minutes- 8 minutes and the cookies were still gooey and falling apart. To me, lemon extract is a little pungent and over the top, so for the glaze i just used vanilla in place of the lemon extract. Excellent! Will definately make again.

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Really happy with how this came out. Moist and flavorful. I used 3 over ripe bananas instead of 2 and added a little nutmeg. I still wish there was a way to make sure the outside doesnt cook faster and get crusty..cuz I'm one of the ones that hates the crust on the bread! But all in all it was fantastic.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Just awesome. Made as a side dish to go with grilled pork chops and parmesan risotto. Took a little longer to cook and for apples to tenderize than the recipe stated.. but man was it delicious. Added a little vanilla extract. Will definately consider using this as an ice cream/pancake/waffle topping in the future. Loved it!!

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
awesome. It never fails when I make this people actually want to take leftovers home! The sweet and salty pretzel crust in combination with the cream cheese layer and berries is pure heaven..I've been asked to bring this to a Christmas party this year.. and its not even a winter kind of dish! Oh well.. try it and love it. =)

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
Im not a fan of french onion soup.. but I'm starting culinary school really soon and I want to try all different things, just to gain more knowledge. Even though i don't like it, it was pretty tasty- and my fiance whos a big fan said it tasted better than any he'd ever had. I didnt have big enough individual ramekins, so i took a chunk of italian bread and topped it with swiss and provolone and put in toaster oven for a few min to melt- then put on top of soup...sure looks pretty too! I'd make this again for a crowd, if they like this type of soup.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
5 stars! These really do taste so similar to the famous RL restaraunt. I added onion powder,parsley flakes, and a little garlic salt to the dry dough mixture. Like other reviews state, definately don't overmix. The dough is very sticky and sort of hard to work with, but they came out light and fluffy and declicious! Will definately try these again. I will double it though, these only made about a dozen- and that just wasn't enough to go around!

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
In my opinion, it was terrible. This doesn't happen too often in my experiences at Allrecipes.com. I followed the recipe exactly and everything about it was wrong, I wouldn't even call this mac and cheese. Just a cheap quick sauce with some cheddar thrown in, no flavor whatsoever. I even used real sharp cheddar in block form that I shredded myself (the expensive kind.) Kielbasa deserves better. Won't be making again

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Really left something to be desired. I wasn't crazy about this at all, neither was my husband. Followed the recipe exactly, minus the butter in the beginning because I couldn't justify adding all that unneccesary fat. Served over brown rice..and it was just bland. We were picking the sausage out and leaving the rest. Not making it into my recipe binder unfortunately! =(

Cheesy Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
This was a bit softer and more soggy than usual cornbread. The flavor was alright, but like the other reviewer stated, I missed the hard, sort of crunchy bottom that regular cornbread gets. Not sure i'd try this again.

Spaghetti Salad III

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Pretty tasty! I used farfalle noodles (bowtie) since I think they hold sauces better. I also threw in some deli salami slices, and used shredded asiago cheese instead of cheddar. Tastes awesome if you let it sit for a while before serving. Will make again!
