Jenny's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2001
I've been coming to AllRecipes.com for a couple years now, and while so many recipes are wonderful this is the FIRST time I felt so inclined to return to write a review. The flavor and kick was just what I was looking for in a jambalya receipe. The family can't shovel it in fast enough. Mmmmmm good!!!!

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2002
This was great. I can never cook fish right. This turned out absolutely divine. The filet fell apart and was moist and not too fishy--even the house didn't smell overwhelmingly fishy. My son raved over it. Way to go!!!! Thank you!

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
I don't think I ever knew real stuffed pepper love until I met these. Wow. Other than using red bell peppers I didn't change a thing. Confusion over when to add the cheese, in the mixture or as a topping, or 1/2 and 1/2. I added it to the mixture and it was very noticeable and worked out well there. It would've been difficult to sprinkle on top as there was a LOT of stuffing, so much I piled it as high as I could on each pepper. Not cooking the meat first seemed stranged to me, but I think this method adds to the flavor and everything cooked to perfect doneness in the time frame given. Spoon the sauce from the pan on afterwards for flavor and to make it look even tastier. If you think is good the first night, it's double WOW reheated the next day.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
The kids enjoyed this, even the picky one, but he didn't eat much. The adults felt it was way too sweet and would've been better to use the pork with a nice BBQ sauce than this too sweet one. I'd suggest using less sugar.

Chocolate Meringue Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
This is an excellent creamy, easy to spread, icing. The flavor is wonderful, not too rich or too sweet; just melt in your mouth goodness. Definitely whip your egg whites to stiff peaks. Recipe lacks the instruction of when to add the vanilla, but be sure to add it. The description indicated there would be flecks of chocolate but since the receipe directs you to melt all the choclate I'm not sure how you obtain this. I guess you could grate some in afterwards--it might make the icing even better, if that's possible. Just what I was looking for. Thank you!

Vegetable Dill Dip

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This was excellent! Not too overwhelming on the dill and I found it strangely appealing with pretzels. I also could not find the store bought Beau Monde seasoning, but simply created the recipe from scratch: 1 T. ground cloves 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 T. salt 1 T. ground bay leaf 1 T. ground allspice 2 T. ground pepper 1 T. ground white pepper 1 tsp. ground nutmeg 1 tsp. ground mace 1 tsp. celery seed Plenty of seasoning left over for the many times I will make this recipe.

Broccoli Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
I ran across this recipe while searching for a cheeseless side dish to serve to my in-laws who were coming to dinner for the first time....my mother-in-law could not get enough of this. The stuffing mix on top really makes this one! Even my son who hates stuffing devoured it. Simple flavors, easy to make.

Cheesy Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2002
Gosh!! I hate to be the sourpuss, but this turned out to be one of those recipes that sounded like it would be great, and was a big disappointment. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I had expected the creamcheese to melt and blend with the cheddar adding a creamy texture. Intead it was just a blob of melted cheese in a shell that while melted did not blend well and tasted overwhelmingly of cream cheese. Very unmexican and the family was disppointed that I had used their favorite cream cheese for bagels to make this disastor.

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: May 17, 2004
I need to re-do this recipe a bit before 5-star rating. Definitely drain spinach on paper towel, as suggested by another user--frozen spinach never drains well and leaves dish a bit soupy and more spinachy flavor than spinach haters would tolerate. I also would like to try ricotta rather than cottage cheese; even if it's more calories, it is atkins friendly and will blend much better. The flavor was very good as is. I just want to work on the appearance and consistency of the final dish.

Man-Lovin' Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Most excellent. Everyone loved them and said they were better than twice baked potatoes. I used cheddar cheese and small multi variety potatoes (black, red, white and yellow) and cut them in half. Used baking grease to season my pan. The "dressing" didn't look like there was enough to mix through the potatoes, so I just put dollops across the entire mixture to sink in while it baked.

Chicken Mushroom Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
This was okay. As stated in the description it does have a light, fresh taste. Not overly flavorful and I was looking for more of bang.

Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was most excellent with a delightful tangy flavor thanks to the Balsamic vinegar. I wouldn't change a thing and it is certainly a nice change from the regular oriental type marinades I've been using.

Eggplant Parmesan from Betty's Kitchen®

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
Wow!! This was wonderful. While we love the sweet taste of eggplant, I almost forgot it was eggplant. I did cut mine thin 1/4 ". I swore I was eating a miniature bite-size pizza--NOT one of those frozen kinds you get in the store. Would make a great appetizer, no utensils required. Not even children can resist this one. VERY tasty!!!

Sunday Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I'm not even sure how to review this, because it wasn't bad, but it wasn't Brunswick stew. I guess it could be most likened to Pork BBQ soup tasting like BBQ pork smothered in BBQ sauce and baked beans. The butternut squash softened up like a substitute potato to add some thickness. The flavor the other ingredients could have provided were completely drowned out by the baked beans and BBQ sauce. It's just not a flavor you're expecting in soup. This recipe makes a LOT. My large crockpot was overflowing. I'll be freezing a bunch for an emergency meal, but we won't be making this again.

Eggs Benedict Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
I thought I used a good Hollandaise sauce (McCormick), but it was seriously lacking. Just another egg casserole dish; far removed from what would be considered Eggs Benedict as the eggs are not poached.

The Best Spinach Salad Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
Loved this. Reminded me or broccoli salad, which we usually make with raisins and red onions, the nuts and spinach with broccoli made a nice change to the dressing salad.

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
We enjoyed this recipe, made it for Easter morning. Woke up to a nice aroma, and no fuss no muss. Made exactly according to the directions--except 12 eggs wasn't enough to cover everything so I added 7 more so that it just barely covered. Also added 3/4 cup more cheese Cooked 9 hours and it was very moist, not leftover tasting at all. Husband asked me to make this a regular; he loved the great combination of flavors.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
MMmMmmMMmm just finished too many plates of this. Thank You for teaching me the secret of peeling off the leaves by boiling and pulling off one at a time. After that, I skipped the egg to hold rice and hamburger together and had to cook way more filling to go with all the leaves I was able to pull. The sauce needed help. Added tomato paste and 2 cups of water, along with some brown sugar, vinegar and wooster as suggested by others. I can't give exact measurements, but it was as good if better than I remember....will make again and again
