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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I picked up a beautiful box of blueberries at the store and the hubby made some noise about "blueberry muffins." So, this is the first time I've tried this recipe and I will say, it's a keeper! I did "up" the ingredients by about a 1/3 to make a full dozen muffins. I added about a 1 1/2 tsp of orange zest(awesome addition!!!)and skipped the crumb topping--as I was in a hurry. Instead I just sprinkled some "Sugar in the Raw" over the tops. EXCELLENT MUFFINS!!!

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!

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!

Hot Water Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2015
I used this in making a beef pot pie and it worked very well! It was easy to work with and I didn't even chill it. Rolling between sheets of waxed paper made it a snap! Thanks for the recipe--I will use again!

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!

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!!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I've made these several times and we always enjoy them! The first time I made them, I didn't have anything to dip them in, so I mixed equal portions of ketchup and 'apricot-pineapple perserves' and it was a huge hit. These shrimp are so yummy--even my husand loves them and he'd not eaten much shrimp before. I like the bit of cayenne pepper to give them just the right amount of zip!

Stovetop Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
So easy on the stovetop!! Just make sure to cook it long enough so it won't be sticky when it cools. I added 3 different kinds of nuts, cranberries and cinnamon...and more oats! Great recipe!

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Thank you Sarah-May for this recipe! The step by step photos were a big help in making it. I made half a recipe to "road test" the recipe and the family really enjoyed the bread. My dough did make a circle a bit larger than 12 inches, which made it a bit harder to fit all the "petels" into place. Next time I will trim off dough if I need to. At the time I made this, I didn't have a lemon on hand, so used a bit of lemon extract in the dough---next time I will wait until I have the lemon, as the lemon zest is a must!! I used a seedless, black raspberry jam, but will experiment with other jams or a cream cheese type filling. Thanks Sarah-May for a wonderful recipe.

Swedish Kringles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
Enjoyed this and expect to make it again! Next time I will add almond extract to the bottom crust, too. I did "up" the extract in the puffy layer--it just needed more! If you are not going to serve this right away, I suggest not frosting it until shortly before serving--my frosting sort of soaked in overnight and I had to refrost, but it was still great!

Danish Kringle

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
It takes some time (it is not hard), but it's worth it! Served this to guests along with the Swedish Kringle on this site. Both were very good, but they only shared the Kringle name--very different pastries. The guests gave the Dane's the biggest thumbs up! I went with the Swed's...

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.

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.
