RWOP Finalist: PHILLY Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
These were great and easy. When you first mix up the cream cheese filling it tastes a little spicy, but once you stuff and top the mushroom it isn't at all. I ended up making these twice in two days they were so good.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
This was an enormous hit at an office party I brought it to. I used a total of 16 sandwiches. I put down a layered, spread the natural peanut butter right on top, then drizzled chocolate syrup, then another layer of sandwiches and froze it in a Tupperware container. Just before I served it I turned it out onto a platter, iced it with cool whip and drizzled it with more chocolate syrup and crumbled butterfinger. I iced the sides of it with cool whip too, and you could not tell it was ice cream sandwiches. When you cut it, it looked like an intricate layered dessert. People went nuts for it, there was not a bit left. I even had people asking me where I bought it and others were like, "wow how did you do that?" It totally cracked me up knowing how easy it was. It took about 10 minutes, I made it right here in the office kitchen.

Alfredo Blue

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2001
This came out tasting great. I had trouble getting it to thicken up, finally added some flour. Instead of using regular salt, I used garlic salt (in additionalt ot the garlic in the recipe), and that seemed to give it more flavor. I sauteed shrimp and crabmeat in butter and lemon, then added to the sauce while it was simmering. Turned out great!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I used 3/4 of the seasoning pack, put on crackers and used regularly sliced cucumbers (not too thick or too thin) and topped with dried dill. I made the cream cheese mixture the night before. Several people asked me how I made them and told me how good they were. Very simple and fresh tasting appetizer (I made them for a baby shower but my dad sampled some too and said they were really good). Super simple/easy to make/complimented = great recipe.

Chicken Jerusalem I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2001
This recipe is AWESOME!! I added some extra garlic salt and a little extra chopped garlic, as well as some mushrooms and just a little finely diced red onion to the sauce. It was not bland at all, very juicy and flavorful. It was also SO easy!! I halved the recipe (since there are only two of us here to eat it), but wish I hadn't! Truely awesome!

African Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I agree with the people who said this turned out great because they are great cooks. You do need to customize the recipe to your taste. I used about 2 teaspoons from a jar of minced garlic. After sauteing the onion & garlic until the onion was tender, I added the tomato and sauteed garlic, onion, tomato together for about 10 minutes on low. I used the canned whole peeled tomatoes, but I diced them myself. Instead of throwing out the juice, I reserved it. While cooking the chicken I slowly added the reserved tomato juice and reduced it. My grocery store only had sweetened coconut milk. If you can only get the sweetened coconut milk, don't add a whole can. Add a little, stir, simmer, and taste. I added about 1/3 of the can and it was perfect. I wanted my chicken to be fall apart tender, so I cooked it on low heat. I used about 1lb of chicken. After I added the coconut milk, I added about a pound of cooked shrimp, 3 more diced peeled tomatoes (I used 1 14.5 ounce can, plus 3 out of another can), 1 tablespoon of butter, then covered and simmered for about an hour. I was very heavy handed with the garlic salt and the curry. I used hot vindaloo curry paste and some tumeric based curry powder. I also added some cayenne (we love spicy food). The butter added some richness to the sauce, and the extra tomato juice helped give me a nice rich sauce as well. If I had not only been able to get sweetened coconut milk I may not have needed the butter or the extra tomatoes.

Linda's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2001
This was a really awesome blue cheese dressing. I've never made salad dressing before (except for premixed seasoning packets), and the idea of making my own blue cheese dressing instead of buying it at the store kind of amused me. But it sounded so easy, I went for it, and am so glad that I did! It is MUCH better than any store bought dressing I've ever tried. I also spent the money to get a good quality blue cheese, and think that was worth it! Thank you for a great recipe!

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I made this last night and am still thinking about how good it was. I did change up the prep a bit. I let the cucumbers drain for about 30 minutes (next time I will do this overnight) and then let them swim in a rice wine vinegar bath for about 30 minutes. I didn't rinse off the salt before throwing the cucumbers in the vinegar. I mixed together the sour cream, green onions, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, black pepper, and 2 teaspoons of rice wine vinegar while the cucumbers were draining/marinating. Then I removed the cucumbers from the vinegar, blotted them dry again, and mixed them with the sour cream. I added some paprika on top. It was delicious. Served it with the spicy salmon with caramelized onions recipe from here.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
These were so good! I made some updates based on the reviews and what I had, but I bet the original is amazing too! 1. Like most people suggest, I partially baked the bottom. 2. I topped the bottom crust with 6 slices of cheese - 3 Swiss and 3 Muenster. I had this multipack cheese thing. I'm a huge fan of Swiss, but I actually think the Muenster pieces were tastier. 3. Put a layer of sun dried tomato pesto over the cheese. Next time I will add a second layer of sun dried tomato pesto between one of the meat/cheese layers. 4. Sliced up the salami and pepperoni a little (didn't both slicing the ham) so I could cut it into squares easier. 5. After crust/cheese/pesto I layered salami, then ham, then some shredded pizza cheese (I didn't buy enough cheese and that's what was in the fridge), then pepperoni, 3 slices of provolone (I will use 6 next time), diced (blotted with paper towels) red peppers and then egg/black pepper/Parmesan mixture, to which I added a little garlic powder. (I totally forgot to buy Parm and my mom had some of the wretched green can stuff in the fridge that I used.). I only poured egg mixture (3) inside and did not use any as an egg wash. It was freaking delicious. I served it as lunch and we had to stop ourselves from eating until we were uncomfortable. I was worried about greasiness/saltiness, but it was neither. I purchased really good quality deli meats which I think helped a lot.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
I took this to a party yesterday and the WHOLE thing got eaten. Everyone was asking "who made that cake?" and asking me what was in it. I used 4 skor bars, 3 on the cake and 1 on top of the cool whip. BTW, for the people that said the whipped topping melted, use cool whip, not the whipped topping out of the spray cans. The cool whip won't melt.

Ingrid's Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
this was absolutely delicious. We ate it all weekend on Caesar salads with bacon and tomato. I was nervous when I got back from the store and thought maybe I should have grabbed a store bought dressing as a backup, but it turned out wonderfully.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2002
Absolutely awesome! And so easy! I added a dash of cayenne pepper (not enough to make it hot, just enough to flavor it slightly) and a dollup of sour cream in the middle. It was great.

Three Cheese Manicotti II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This is a great recipe. I've made it twice so far. I wasn't able to find the manicotti shells (seriously!) so made it layered between lasagna noodles. I added about 1/3 cup of water to the sauce on the bottom, then covered with a layer of (uncooked) lasagna noodles and used the "no boil" method mentioned before. The first time I added spinach and mushrooms. The second time I skipped the spinach but added more garlic and more mushrooms. The second time I made it I was short mozzarella and had a little extra ricotta, so I made the normal mixture and then "iced" the top with the extra ricotta. It was delicious both times but I liked it the second time a little more. There is a lot you can do with this recipe. Next time I am going to add some sausage.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
This really was amazing chicken. The mayonaise kept it unbelievably moist. I used the advice of others to use a brush to apply the mayo, added some italian Good Seasonings dry dressing to the mayo, and added some garlic, parmesan and parsley to the bread crumbs. Extremely easy and very good.

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
Very good. I too left them a long "logs" and pinched the ends to keep the cheese from escaping. They were great.
