Bread Machine Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
This is one of the best recipes for the bread machine I have. I do things slightly differently. I use olive oil instead of butter, fresh oregano from my garden chopped instead of parsley, 2 t. garlic cloves crushed instead of powder, and splenda instead of sugar. I put almost everything in the warm water first than the flour than the oregano and yeast go on top. The taste with these changes is excellant. (I tried it to the letter first and didn't like it.) If you find the bread doesn't raise very much just use the "scale this recipe" to adjust it. I find that 16-18 servings uses my 2lb. machine to capacity better than leaving it at 12 (the original setting on the recipe.) Good luck! ~jllebow

Fresh Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2004
This turned out pretty good. I did have some slight changes. I didn't have enough frozen cherries so I added half the amount in frozen peaches. The peaches and cherries tasted great together and complimented perfectly! I didn't have any shortening so I used 1 c butter. The cooking time seemed right on. All in all the only thing I would change would be to cut down on some of the topping. There was just a bit too much so you didn't taste as much fruit as I'd like to, just a mouth full of sugar! I would say cut the topping by 1/4 or even 1/3. I'm going to experiment to find which is best. Oh also, I had a little juice spill out so it got burnt on the coil. It smelled AWFUL! Just in case, I'd lay down some foil underneath.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
I cheated and cooked it for three hours on high and one hour on low heat. It turned out fantastic! My 2 year old gobbled this up! I will definently be making this again and again. Thanks so much for this recipe!! Be careful, it will boil out the top if your crock isn't big enough.

Vegetable Cheese Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
This soup was wonderful!!! I didn't have the processed cheese so I just used cubed sharp cheddar and colby jack. Did add a little more potatoes and some broccolli. Didn't have vegie broth so I used four chicken boullion cubes with package directions for broth. Had on hi for four hours bacause I started kind late. People who don't like soup liked this! Goes perfect with the "Italian Soup Bowls" also on this site. Enjoy!

Easy Baklava

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2002
This is my husband's favorite desert and he said it was better than the gourmet stuff we usually buy. I thought I could have used a little less of the syrup and more phyllo (it was VERY nutty) but it's still very good. Great to eat alone or on vanilla ice cream! I used pecans as the nuts and they definently added to the overall flavor.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2002
These taste great. Be careful not to overmix the topping, every time I did it my children "helped" and it was syrupy. Put it on anyway, made the top sink in. Still tasted great though. These went fast at neighborhood potluck!

Cola Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
My husband and his friends loved this recipe and it was so easy. There is another similar recipe on here that calls for some ketchup which I didn't have but next time I would like to try adding it. (1/4 - 1/2 c) I had five pork chops and it worked out great. Thanks!

Beef and Rice Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
I loved this! I found it to be creamy and comforting. I did a few things differently. I used brown rice. So I cooked it by itself (1c. nishiki brown rice + 2 1/2 c water) for 30 minutes. Than I put it with the meat for 15 minutes together. By then it was more than ready for the tomatoes. I used one 10 oz. can of diced tomatoes and green chillis. This took care of any blandness others may have found. I used one 8 oz. block of monterey jack cheese that I shredded. I mixed it in a little while it was melting so it made it really creamy. This was EXCELLANT! I love it! The only problem I have is that the kids (5,4,2) didn't like it but the baby (1) did. Go figure. If my husband were here it would be gone. This made more than enough for a family of six.

Hearts of Palm Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
The end product was outstanding despite not having the perfect ingredients or being able to follow the directions exactly. Used long grain white rice(one less cup of water and chicken base), no broth, and put the palm in with the onions(oops!). served with chicken and asparagus stir fry.

Norwegian Flat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
YUM!!! I follow this recipe exactly but cook like pancakes on a griddle just because it's faster. They are crunchy outside and a little more like gyro/pita bread on the inside. Perfect for my Hummus!!! Made several times over, perfect every time. THANKS FOR A GREAT RECIPE!!!

Super Hot Cereal Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2002
I love this recipe! Really you can put in any type of fruit and/or seasoning you want. I have a dehydrator so I dehydrated strawberries and put them in. My kids are too young to know the difference between this and the store bought stuff. Be forewarned, the texture of this oatmeal compared to store bought oatmeal is VERY different, heavier. But much cheaper and you control what goes in...

Lentil Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This turned out really well. I have a few things I changed. When adding onions to soups I find my kids complain about the texture of them so I GRATE them into the oil first! You get all the flavor but without texture issues with picky people. Also added a bit of garlic. After that turns into a sizzling yummy paste I add chopped celery (3+ stalks) and 1 tomato. I used 2 5.5oz cans of V8 in place of paste, didn't have any on hand. Doubled the cumin. Added fresh cilantro. Added 1 cup dehydrated spinach (I add that to almost EVERYTHING! LoL). Added water as it cooked down. Next time I would add carrots, I didn't have any on hand this time. I would also cut back on cumin to about 1 1/2 T and add some chipotle tabasco sauce. Perfect amount of salt even with none added. Served with sprinkled grated parmesan cheese. Next time will also sprinkle fresh ground pepper.

Served with a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Yummy!

Eggless, Milkless, Butterless Cake IV

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2002
I did a few things differently with this one. I took out the raisins and instead put a can of sliced peaces (in natural juices, drained) on the bottom of the pan. I also added a dash of allspice. Did this in the microwave for 12 minutes on high. It turned out great! It was the perfect breakfast treat when I was out of eggs and out of ideas. It was a little dry but I'm wondering if that's because I took out the raisins and it wasn't anything that hot chocolate or coffee/tea couldn't fix. I will definently be making this one again! My 1 year old and 2 year old both loved this and it is cut back on fat for me.

Hush Puppies II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
This was very good, even my children LOVED them. I did not have "self rising" anything so I used 1c flour 1 c cornmeal + 2 t. baking powder to cover that. Now that I think about it I could have used something like Krusteaz or Bisquick, but I really enjoyed the cornbreadish taste/feel so I would still use the cornmeal. I also added a little bit of Turbinado (natural grain)sugar, maybe a T. I've never fried before, this was my first go and it was GREAT! I'd say the secret is to actually wait the 10 minutes they suggest, before that it was way too runny. It thickened up perfect though. This recipe made 29 "pups". (Boy they went fast!) GOOD LUCK!

Microwave Tater-Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2005
Hi all, I just watnted to note that some of my suggestions were deleted by allrecipes when they posted this. I make this using a round dish not a square one. This makes a difference in how evenly it cooks. I have used the stack cooker by tupperware and the largest round stainshield by rubbermaid. I'll post more of my tips as I find them.

Whole Wheat and Quinoa Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
These came out ok, I used cornmeal and baking soda for powder. The result was a very crunchy puffy pancake. I think it was a good recipe and will make it again but I think with all things quinoa/cornmeal it's best if you let it sit for a while before you cook with it. Next time I will have this maybe prepared the night before so it has a chance to really soak up some of the liquids and pick up the flavor.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
These didn't turn out well for me. They were soggy and didn't taste at all like enchiladas. I think it would have been better if the chicken were shredded instead of cubed, otherwise you end up with some bites with no meat and they don't roll well. You can shred chicken easily by boiling it instead of pan frying it and puling it apart with a fork. It's much quicker too, especially if you use frozen chicken.

High Flavor Bran Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2004
Love this bread! I followed it exactly except I didn't have any bran anything so I used one cup of "Honey Bunches of Oats" cereal. Came out great! It rose well, has nice coloring, great taste. Even my four and three year old kids fight over any piece of this! I made this while my husband was away on business and chances are there won't be any for him when he gets back, he'll just have to listen to us talk about how wonderful it was!
