Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
My husband usually prefers boxed mix but since we were all out I decided to give this recipe a shot. Perfect! Other than being really thick and difficult to measure out (probably because I mismeasured the milk) they were better than boxed, and almost as easy too!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Very good, very quick, and super easy- all important parts of recipes in this household! Yummy in a taco shell or over rice.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Very quick and easy to put together. I loved being able to make a family favorite but not spend the time putting it all together. I definitely prefer a more traditional lasagna over a slow cooked one, but I will definitely make it again in the future in order to save time.

Basic Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Very easy and basic recipe. I followed it exactly and they turned out as I expected. In the future I might add herbs and cheese for a more cheesy biscuit.

Pasta with the Works

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
Quick and easy, but also a bit bland. I added some extra salt and pepper upon serving. I did have to leave out the green peppers due to an allergy so I threw in some fresh spinach instead. I doubled the recipe because I was making this for a pasta dinner work function and I still came home with an empty crock pot (used to keep warm).

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
For me the coffee flavor still overpowered all of the other flavors so I ended up adding .5 tablespoon of cocoa powder and a little extra milk. I also added some vanilla flavoring like some others suggested (after taking a sip of the original recipe!).

Corn Dog Bites

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Really easy to make and a hit with toddlers. I do think they were a bit on the sweet side so next time I will cut back on the sugar. Also, they broke apart very easily so I might add a little extra milk. Definitely a keeper though.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
Very grainy. If I were to make this again I would definitely follow other reviewers suggestion to grind the oatmeal through the blender first.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Delicious! I love balsamic vinegar and this was super easy and yummy. Leftovers were even good the next day.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
Although not very quick, this was a fairly simple recipe. Other than the mushrooms, I had everything on hand and was able to throw it all together. I did not have unsalted butter so I just used salted butter and omitted the extra salt. I also added in some garlic, but I tend to do that with pretty much all of my recipes. My husband and I enjoyed this soup with some chicken salad sandwiches.

Wiener Winks

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Super easy and quick, and a hit with the kiddos! I had an issue with the bread tearing when I used butter so the second time around I just sprayed the bread with some butter flavored pam and they came out nearly perfectly. My 2 year old son loves hotdogs and grilled cheese so this was a great way to combine his two favorite things! I think next time I just might make them on the stove to save some time.

Cream of Tomato Soup with Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I can't believe I haven't rated this recipe yet! I make this often (at least two to three times a month!) and separate into single serving containers so my hubby can take them to work with him. It's a super easy and delicious recipe that I occasionally change up with different spices.

Bobbie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
My husband LOVES oatmeal cookies so this recipe was a hit for him. I am docking it a star because I didn't have enough oatmeal on hand (only about 1 1/2 cups) so that is all I used. I think anything more than that would have made the cookies too dry. I also omitted the raisins and pecans and used the same amount in chocolate chips instead.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
As another reviewer said- these are very time consuming and not worth it at all. They didn't stay together at all and ended up coming out a bit soggy.

Apple Ham Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
This was the 1st recipe I ever tried out on allrecipes and I was not a fan. The mayo seemed to overpower the entire sandwich. Whenever I tell my husband that I am going to try a new dish he always brings up my disastrous first try at making something new because (as I put it) "but it has 4 stars!". Definitely a less than 1 star meal for my family.

Buttery Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Delicious! I didn't have any lemon pepper but the dish didn't seem to be the worse for it. A great way to add some veggies into any diet. Next time I think I may add some lemon juice for a little extra flavor.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Really easy and yummy. I didn't have any wine, so I left it out. The first time I made this I wasn't a fan because my eggs seemed to cook too much. The second time turned out great, making the dish very creamy. It did seem a little bland so next time I think I will add some lemon juice and a little basil as suggested by another reviewer.

Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
I'm not a huge fan of carrots but I loved this recipe! Sure easy and quick, and a great way to add some flavor to any meal. I didn't make any changes at all- I was even able to get my picky two year old to eat some, which is always a major plus!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Made the first time according to the directions and it came out really yummy. Because I served the shrimp over pasta I chose to use all of the butter but think that a little less would have been okay too. Each subsequent time I have this I have chosen to cook the shrimp in the sauce over the stove instead of baking in the oven. I only prefer the stove method because it is quicker.

Green Curry Lamb Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Love, love, love this! I use all of the listed ingredients but cook it a little differently. First, I brown the meatballs for 5 minutes and then add in the curry and coconut milk, letting the meatballs finish cooking in the mixture. I serve the meatballs and sauce over yellow rice. Like other reviewers have said, this recipe is even BETTER as leftovers!
