Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
This was absolutely wonderful! My husband loved it and had two large helpings. The only thing that I changed was to add a teaspoon of minced garlic. I mixed the soy sauce, sugar and salt into the bouillon cube mixture before adding to the crock pot. The only other thing that I did differently was to use stir fry beef that was already cut instead of a whole beef sirloin. It cost a little more but saved a lot of time and was so much easier. I will definitely be making this again!

The Best Slow Cooker Cream Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
After reading all of the reviews I was really excited to try this recipe. However, at least for our family, it didn't live up to it's hype. It was just okay but no one was crazy about it. No one asked for seconds or wanted any of the left overs. Except for halving the recipe I made it exactly as written. It even left kind of an aftertaste in my mouth. For me, it's not worth making again.

Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
This cake was very easy to make and came out very moist. However I can't taste any apple flavor at all. I think that the cloves kind of overpower the taste of the applesauce.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
I really wanted to like this recipe but no one in the family liked it at all. It took longer to bake than stated but that would have been okay if we liked the taste. That didn't happen. I couldn't even finish the one piece I tried. Except for an eggy taste it didn't seem to have much flavor at all. If I am going to be eating all of those calories it had better taste good!

Meadowwood Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I made this exactly as written except for reducing the sugar to 1/2 cup. At first I was worried about the consistency because it looked thinner than I am used to when it was done. However, it thickened up nicely when it cooled. Something about the flavor is a little off for me though and it also tastes a little salty. I may try making it again but use only 1/4 tsp. salt and maybe use two whole eggs instead of two egg yolks. As much as I like vanilla I think that I would only use 1 tsp vanilla next time too, so I can really get the tapioca taste I'm looking for.

Oven Fried Chicken II

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Maybe it's just a matter of taste since other people liked this recipe, but no one in our family liked it at all. I cooked it according to directions except that I used chicken drumsticks and I used butter instead of oil. It took longer to cook than 60 minutes, maybe because of the drumsticks. We found it to be too greasy, and the flavor was very blah. I didn't even bother saving the leftovers since no one wanted any more.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This was very good. I made it exactly as directed and am rating it 4 stars only because the baking time is off. I took it out of the oven after 30 minutes and didn't discover until it was cooled and cut that the center wasn't quite done enough, even though a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean. I will make it again but will try baking it for 40 minutes next time. As a side note, the batter was very thick, more like a dough so you can't really "pour" it into the pan.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
The first couple of bites tasted delicious, but after that it was just too rich for our tastes and I ended up throwing most of it out. It's just a matter of taste I guess and if you don't mind super rich deserts than this one is for you.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I made this according to the recipe, my only change being that I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and I tempered the eggs before I added them. We loved the taste but when it cooled it was much too thick and pasty, which made it difficult to eat. The next time that I make it I will try adding either less rice or more milk.

Bread Machine Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This made a pretty decent basic white bread, but for a garlic bread it didn't pass the test. We couldn't taste hardly any garlic in it, even though I added extra garlic.

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
It was very easy to do but we were not impressed with the results. It was very dry and overcooked. I cooked for one minute, stirred and then cooked for 1 minute more. It was so dry I gave it to the dog.I might try it one more time and reduce the cooking time.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
We loved this recipe. What an easy way to make tapioca pudding! The only thing that I changed was to add some vanilla at the end. It didn't require a lot of stirring until the last hour when it began to thicken. Then I stirred it about every 15 - 20 minutes. My slow cooker doesn't have a medium speed so I cooked it on high for 3 hours. It was the perfect consistency and there was no sticking and no browning on the bottom of the pan. The only thing that I would do differently the next time is to use a little less sugar. It was just a tad bit too sweet for me.

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
We loved this recipe. As far as the ingredients go I followed the recipe exactly except that I only used two teaspoons of caraway. For the preparation and cooking I sauteed the onion and garlic in the bacon grease before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also precooked the sausage in a separate pan while the cabbage mixture was cooking, and then added it to the cabbage mixture and cooked it 15 minutes more. The only thing that I would do differently the next time is to reduce the sugar to 1 tablespoon. It tasted just a bit too sweet for us.

Raspberry Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
I made this pie as written except that I only used two tablespoons of water and the pie was still too runny. I let it set for 8 hours before cutting which should have been more than enough. The filling also tasted a bit too tart for my taste although that may have been the fault of the raspberries (I used fresh). I may try making it again using no water at all.

Highway Cafe Chess Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Maybe it's just a matter of taste but I found this pie much too sweet. After the first couple of bites I just couldn't eat any more. I followed the directions exactly except for omitting the walnuts.

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I have used many recipes from allrecipes.com over the years but have rated only a few...and never this quickly. I made these pork chops tonight and they were amazing! My husband could not stop raving about them. He is normally not a big fan of pork chops, but he loved these, saying they are the best he has ever had. They were very tasty and very moist. I followed the recipe and directions almost exactly except that I made the sauce earlier in the day and used some of it to marinate the chops for a few hours before grilling. Great recipe!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I guess it's mostly a matter of taste on this one. I made it as written except doubled the sauce and marinated the chicken for a couple of hours before grilling. My son loved it but my husband and I thought that the sauce had too strong a flavor for us when used for dipping. I will probably try making it again but marinade it for longer to try to infuse more flavor into the meat without having to use extra sauce for dipping. The chicken was very tender and juicy.

Broiled Lemon and Garlic Tiger Prawns

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I have been using this recipe for quite awhile now and everyone loves it. I often use regular shrimp instead of prawns with equally good results. Very quick and easy to make and very delicious.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I love good guacamole but have yet to find a recipe that is as good as that in a couple of my favorite restaurants. When I saw all the positive reviews for this recipe I decided to try it. My husband and I found it just "okay" for us. It may be just a matter of preference but for us the cilantro was too overpowering. It was all we could taste. I made the recipe exactly as stated.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
I have tried this recipe twice now and am still perfecting it to try to get it to a 5 star rating. I followed the directions almost exactly the first time and it was a bit too tart for our taste so the second time I only zested one lemon. That was much better but I am still playing with the right amount of lemon juice. Juicing two medium lemons with an automatic juicer resulted in almost a whole cup of lemon juice which was a bit too much even though the pie was not runny. I have found that whisking the 1/4 cup hot sugar mixture into the egg yolks before adding them to the remaining mixture really helps the pie to set up well. The first time I didn't do this and the pie had some juice under the crust. My only other problem is with the meringue. It looks beautiful when the pie is finished and tastes great, but after being in the refrigerator for several hours the meringue becomes sticky and makes the pie difficult to slice. All in all I think that this is a very good recipe. There is never going to be a lemon meringue pie that will be worth five stars to everyone since many people like different degrees of tartness. You just need to take a good recipe and tweak it until you get just the right degree of tartness for you. This is one of the best lemon pies recipies that I have tried.
