Colonial Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I've been making these bars for several years, but just joined AllRecipes. Every time I make them, people rave about them and ask for the recipe. Most recently, a coworker said, "I don't like pumpkin, but this is like cake. Really good cake." Highly recommend this recipe!

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Great recipe that's easy to customize for personal tastes. I've made this several times now, and it feels fancy but it's easy to make. My only word of caution is that the walnut oil is fairly expensive. Good thing you only need a little bit each time.

Chicago-Style Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Delicious! We used pre-seasoned diced tomatoes so omitted the garlic, salt and oregano. We also added some diced bell peppers and used only half an onion. I'll be making this one again for sure!

Jay's Hearty Breakfast Skillet

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Fantastic! My boyfriend says this is as good as our favorite breakfast restaurant. The great thing about the recipe is that you can substitute nearly anything for the suggested ingredients, as long as the potatoes, cheese and eggs stay the same. We've used breakfast sausage, mushrooms, bell peppers and spinach.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, just rubbed the inside of the crock pot with a little bit of butter. It turned out perfectly! Fell off the bone -- barely needed a knife! I will make this again for sure!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
I've made these twice in two weeks and they were a hit both times! My entire department now has the link to this recipe. And at a Labor Day potluck, I was the only one without leftovers. I used egg roll wrappers instead of tortillas. I grilled the chicken on my Foreman instead of pan frying. I froze them overnight. Instead of deep frying, I brushed them with olive oil and baked about 8 min. a side at 450. The first time, I only froze for an hour, sprayed with cooking spray and baked at 425. They were good, but the second time crisped up much better.

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
Delicious! Exactly what I was hoping for! The ONLY thing that might make it better is if the cookies were thinner -- it was slightly thick for a hard cookie.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
"I just had what may have been the best steak of my life," -- boyfriend. I don't give five stars often, but that is a five-star comment! Our plans changed, so the steaks marinaded for almost three days. They were so tender they were falling apart on the grill. The flavor was amazing. I didn't, and wouldn't, change a thing. We'll be grilling these many more times this summer.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Doubled the recipe and added a dash of liquid smoke. We cooked ribs in the sauce. It was a very good basic recipe. We'll be making it again, but spicing it up a bit.

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
This is very good. I cut the recipe in half and it didn't seem like enough sauce, but it turned out very well. My boyfriend requested additional red pepper flakes next time, but all in all, very tasty.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I couldn't find mahi mahi, so I just used frozen tilapia fillets that I had on hand. Very good flavor. The ginger is noticable but not overwhelming, giving it a nice fresh taste.

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
I made this for the first time and I'm eating it right now: delicious! I used hot Italian turkey sausage, uncased, and shiraz for the wine. I also took one reviewer's suggestion and sprinkled with a little mozzarella before serving. My only complaint: the directions didn't say anything about cutting the tomatoes, so I have a about 10 whole tomatoes floating in the finished soup, which was a little weird. I also should have cut the pasta -- it's a bit difficult to eat full linguini strands with a spoon.

Wouldn't change a thing -- very nice blend of flavors.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I used onion powder instead of the finely chopped onion, but otherwise followed the recipe. I'd use real onion next time, as the recipe states, and maybe add a bit more seasoning, but generally very good. Makes a lot of nice, thick gravy.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I substituted lite coconut milk for regular, and used instant jasmine rice instead of making my own, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Smelled and tasted delicious. I will be making this one again, although I may add a bit more curry to increase the spice level, and experiment adding different vegetables.

Kielbasa Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I wouldn't call this an exceptional dish, but it is an easy, tasty way to use up leftover white rice from Chinese takeout. And, since leftover white rice means I've had Chinese food recently, I appreciate that the kielbasa changes the flavor profile a bit.

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I used fat free cream cheese and fat free Cool Whip, along with 2 tbsp. lemon juice -- still had coworkers commenting on how good it was and asking for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
SO good and SO easy. I only did two chicken breasts in a small crock pot, 1/4 packet of ranch mix and 1/2 to 3/4 bottle of Franks wing sauce. I forgot to add the butter, but it was excellent even without it. It was spicy but not too spicy, moist but not runny... just perfect. This is going to become a regular recipe for me.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This was delicious -- exactly what I was craving. I took everyone's advice and only used 1/2 c. sugar. I didn't have celery seed, so I used 1 tsp celery salt and omitted the salt. It might actually be a little too creamy, so I think I'll add a little more macaroni plus extra celery and bell pepper next time.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Great flavors! Just the right amount of spice in an often bland dish. The directions don't include baking the potatoes before including in the soup, but this is a KEY step! I'll be making this again, but I'll bake the potatoes first next time.
