Sour Cream Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Found this recipe while browsing for something to cook for dinner. It was a real hit at my house! I did add a bit more sour cream after reading previous reviews. I had a bit of leftover rice which I put under the chicken, so it made it more of a "one dish meal.". I used "garlic and herb" seasoned bread crumbs. This one's a keeper for a quick and easy dinner. Recipe does need some corrections in specifying "chicken breasts" and to "cover" for first 30 minutes.

Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I made these to take to a Christmas dinner we were invited to. I love potato rolls and these didn't disappoint. They were easy to make and were very soft, fluffy & moist. I recommend oiling your fingers when you start to shape the rolls, as the dough can be a bit sticky. I did use butter in place of the shortening. I put them into cake pans--a dozen in one pan, and a bakers dozen in the other pan. Everyone raved about the rolls, so this one is a keeper!

Breakfast Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I made this for Christmas brunch. I'd never had a breakfast casserole that I really cared for--now I do! This was WONDERFUL! I admit, I thought that 2 pounds of meat was overkill. I only used the sausage--it was plenty of meat and still made a good size dish. I didn't have cream on hand (did it really need anymore fat??), so just used 1% milk and it was fine. The combination of onions, peppers and mushrooms was heavenly, although next time I will add more mushrooms since they shrink so much. This one's a keeper!!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Yep, this makes perfect eggs! No more gray-ish yolks for me! Wish I would have know this method 30+ years ago! Thanks for the instructions.

Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is the first time I have made a shepherd's pie and I had a good result. Easy, satisfing comfort food! I did add the onion with the beef so it cooked up before adding the other ingredients. I added a can of green beans and a can of corn, which makes a good combo. I also added a bit of garlic, which I think enhanced the flavor. I agree, it could use a larger portion of mashed potatoes. I cooked up my potatoes fresh, and ended up with about 3 1/2-4 cups of mashed potatoes...just right, in my book. I know this will grace our dining table again and again! Thanks for the recipe!

Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This is a pretty salad to add to the Christmas dinner table. I made it exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. My cranberries were from the freezer and I chopped them with my Pampered Chef food chopper while they were still frozen--worked really well! We ate up the leftover salad today; still good, but is best on the day it is made. You can mix up the cranberries and sugar and refrigerate overnight, if desired, then add remaining ingredients just before serving. This one's a keeper!

Ham and Lima Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I really liked this recipe! The chicken broth keeps it from tasting so "beany," and the jalapeno adds a nice flavor. I used large limas as that is what I had on hand, but I used a full pound, keeping the other ingredients the same. I did do this in the crockpot and it worked great. I soaked the beans overnight, cooked them about 3 hours on high, drained the water and added the rest of the ingredients, cooking about 6 hours. I'll be making this again!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2015
This is GOOD! I've tried a couple of recipes for ranch dressing that weren't a hit, but this one is "just right!" It's also easy to make in a smaller quantity for us empty nesters!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
I was just browsing, looking for something to do with the chicken breasts I had thawed for dinner. So glad I came across this recipe and gave it a try! Loved the easy spice mix--will use it, as is, to season other recipes of chicken, too. The lime/garlic mix was just right and made a wonderful sauce. Thanks for this recipe!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
I've seen this recipe over the years here on allrecipes and thought I needed to try it! I made it for Christmas dinner and what a hit! We are empty-nesters and I have a small ceramic pie plate so I scaled back the recipe to fit. The directions don't say how long to cook the sauce and I think mine cooked a little too long, but it was still delish! After the pie was in the oven, I watched the video instructions (which I should have done first!)and it says to cook the sauce about 5 minutes. I'll know for next time...and there WILL be a "next time"...my husband is all ready asking when I'm going to make this again! I was surprised how good this pie was without any cinnamon...it just doesn't need it! Thank you Moshasmama for sharing this recipe!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I made this for a family gathering on New Years Eve. I wouldn't have believed you could make scalloped potatoes without milk! Everyone really liked it. They were surprised when I told them it didn't have milk in it. Definitely will make this again!

Sugar Cookie Drops

This was easy to make and produces a very acceptable cookie! I did add about a 1/4 tsp. of salt, per other reviewer's suggestions. I will certainly make these again! Thanks!

My Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
This is the 2nd time I've made this chili and while it is basic, it is very good! I've always struggled to get the right mix of spices when I made chili--sometimes it was good and sometimes, just OK. I never would have thought to put oregano in chili, but I have never cared much for cumin, so this recipe works for me. While we don't like really spicy food, I do put in a few shakes of red pepper flakes in--just enough to give it a little kick. I used my own crockpot cooked pinto beans, so very economical. I definitely used more than one can's worth, though!! Thanks for the recipe, Michelle!

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
Oh my goodness! This was a great starter recipe. I followed another reviewer advice and slowly added the cheese to the hot cream/butter mixture, stirring constantly. Then to take it up a step, I added a couple of handfuls of thawed, and pressed dry, frozen spinach; a very large clove of fresh garlic (pressed); and some pepper. I served this over spaghetti squash (my favorite 'pasta') and it was totally awesome! My hubby said it was "excellent!" Thanks for this recipe!

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Easy to make, old-fashioned comfort food. I made this in the microwave because it's so easy to scorch on the stove--no matter the burner temperature or the constant stirring. You still have to watch it cafefully so it doesn't boil over in the microwave.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2015
I was looking for a quick and easy cinnamon roll recipe and this fit the bill! I put 12 rolls in a 9 inch, round cake pan and the 2 end pieces in glass custard cups...for taste testing! I smeared a touch of cream cheese icing on the 2 rolls for my husband and I to try. The rolls are going to a men's breakfast in the morning, so I will frost them with cream cheese icing just before my husband leaves the house with them. The only change I would make would be to add more cinnamon to the filling...about double the cinnamon (think Cinnabon!). The dough was a bit sticky, so I will probably add just a touch more flour to make it easier to work with. Al1 in all, a very good recipe!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2015
Excellent recipe! I make these for my husband's co-workers and the orders keep coming in! I add the nuts when I scoop the cookies, otherwise it is hard to get them evenly distributed. Thanks for a great recipe!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
YUM! These are wonderful. Had several people say they were the best cinnamon roll they have ever eaten. Next time I might turn the oven down to 375 degrees and bake just a little longer. The center ones were a little doughy, but, hey, some people like them that way! These are worth it!
