Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Absolutely fabulous! Like others though I used canned sweet potatoes in syrup (when little ones wake up at 6am it's just easier on me) added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg. I've cooked these quite a few times both with pumpkin and with the sweet potatoes and my family LOVES them!! In half the pancakes I like to add slivered almonds or pecans too. Thanks so much for sharing this!!

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Absolutely fabulous!!! I've done this with both lemon and orange juice and it's delicious both ways, it just depends on what I have on hand when making it (I tend to ALWAYS have lemon juice on hand, but there have been times the kids drink up the last of the OJ before I get to it). Thanks for sharing this!!!

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
This was pretty bland, fairly dry and not really worth the effort. I made it twice (just to make sure it wasn't something I did wrong) and it came out dry both times. I won't be making this version of Red Velvet Cake again. I did NOT make the icing in this version, I used a cream cheese icing recipe I have at home.

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Absolutely awesome!! After reading all the other comments I didn't bother to wait the full hour. I barely waited 2 minutes before cooking them, doesn't matter though, these were AWESOME!!! They DO NOT make enough for a family of 4 though, expect to have to at least double the recipe! If you have big eaters (or boys) you might want to triple it!

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
If you're in the mood for real cheesecake don't make these. These were pretty good, but definitely not like the real deal (I love making homemade cheesecakes). I would suggest these to anyone who wants a cheesecake type dessert but doesn't want to put forth any real effort. They're pretty good with a chocolate graham cracker crust and raspberries instead of the strawberries too (if using chocolate graham crackers, omit the lemon juice). Double the butter for the crust and add about 1/4 cup of brown sugar if you don't want it to crumble too easily. Just understand this will make the crust sweeter and the lemon flavor might pop a bit more.

Indian Fish Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Had a friend of ours over for dinner who is new to America (he was born and raised in India) and he said I was spot on with this, but to him it was fairly mild. For us it was pretty spicy though. I should note that I did not add the mustard. I marinated the fish in a turmeric/garlic paste with a little salt and pepper. (Food processor, few drops of water and oil and then blend) this was a tip my friend had given me when I told him what I planned to make for dinner. I also tossed in a can of green chilies and cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/2 a teaspoon. We absolutely LOVED this dish!! We served it over brown rice and finished it off completely. I can not WAIT to make this again!!! Thanks so much for sharing this!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Perfect!! I had to add a bit more milk and a bit more corn syrup (a tsp at a time) but it came out simply PERFECT. I love the high gloss!! The only down side is that if you want sprinkles you better do them quickly!! The icing soft sets in less than 10 minutes after putting it on a cookie and hard sets in about an hour and a half. I can not wait to show these off to friends and family!! I used Wilton's gel food coloring for my colors and they came out nicely. Thanks so much for sharing this!!!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I did not care for this recipe. Sure it was moist and yes it tasted like bananas but I used 6 bananas (which came out to almost 2 1/3 cups mashed bananas) and only got ONE loaf out of it!! I've made and had better banana breads that were just as moist, made twice as much bread and yet used half the bananas. Not to mention there is very little real nutritional value here. White flour all the way through? At least add nuts to it to give it some protein. Thanks but no thanks, I will not be making this one again.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I am NOT a sloppy joe type of person, but my kids love them. Normally I just make the name brand kind bought at the store, but since I discovered allrecipes.com I've tried making the majority of foods from scratch. These were FABULOUS! Even I went back for seconds! The only thing I did differently was add an onion and a few cloves of garlic (diced) to the meat as it was browning and a splash of vinegar with the ketchup mix. Absolutely perfect. I served over garlic toast with a fork to help keep the messiness down. Superb! I will definitely be making these again!

Bread Pudding III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
When I set out to make a bread pudding I wanted one that was so perfect you didnt need to add ice cream or syrup to it at all. THIS ONE ROCKS!!! I hate raisins though so I did NOT add those, instead I added about 2/3 cup of pecans to the bread mix, they went perfectly with the dish! I also let it soak for 10 minutes before baking and used cooking spray instead of butter (it's cheaper). In less than 12 hours every single bite of this was GONE! And I have picky eaters!! I will DEFINITELY be making this again and again! I cant wait to play around with it and see what adding chopped apples and walnuts does to this! Simply WONDERFUL recipe!!! Thanks Nichele!!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Perfect, absolutely perfect. Changed one thing though: Due to the sheer volume of reviews that called for extra cooking time I lowered the temp to 325 and baked for about an hour and a half, the loaves came out perfect! Moist and cinnamon'y. Finally!! A pumpkin bread that isn't dry and bland tasting!!

Cowboy Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Awesome recipe. I actually think it would be better without the chocolate chips (kids and hubby LOVED the chocolate chips but the chef in me played around with the recipe a bit). I have made this 3 times and the only thing I keep changing is the chocolate chips. I used cinnamon chips the second time I made these and butterscotch chips the 3rd time. I like it with the cinnamon chips the best (a little harder to find but perfect with these cookies). I also put the cookies on wax paper that I sprayed with cooking spray before baking and had NO problem with cookies sticking to the pan. This is a cookie I will make often. I can't wait for the next school bake sale to show these off!! Thanks Sharon!!

Best Brownies Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
My family loved this recipe!! I only did two things differently: first I used raspberry extract instead of the vanilla extract and second I added 2/3 cup Hershey's chocolate sauce ((for added chocolaty flavor)). Next time I will use Priscilla Weaver's Hot Fudge Sauce instead of the hershey's. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Hot-Fudge-Sauce/Detail.aspx This does make a HUGE batch though, so if making it for a family of four I would suggest cutting the recipe in half. Thanks so much Amy!! These are our new favorite brownies!!! ((I will never buy store bought again!))

Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Excuse me while I pass out from the deliciousness of this recipe!!! I LOVE this recipe!!!!!! I used 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips because I didnt have the chocolate bar (but next time I will!!) and it was sooooooo good!!! Thank you so much for sharing this!!!

Country Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Wonderful!! I made this for my boyfriend for breakfast and he LOVED it! I added rice burgers which I chopped up instead of the bacon. Because the rice burgers already have herbs in them I omitted the herbs from the recipe. I would recommend beating your eggs at least 2 minutes before adding other ingredients to them. This is what I did and I had wonderful fluffy and perfectly flavored Quiche!! I will definitely be using this as a base recipe to all my quiche dishes from now on! I can’t wait to make another! I gave it only 4 stars because I changed a few things, and plan to continue to change things as I make it. Otherwise this was a great recipe!
