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!!

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
My grandmother passed away this past august before any of her daughters or grandchildren got a chance to get her recipe for cheese biscuits. This is as close as I have ever gotten! I added about a half teaspoon of garlic powder to the dry mix and I omitted the garlic from the butter mix for brushing over the biscuits. They came out perfect. Thank you so much for sharing these!!

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Timeless recipe!! Like many others, my mom loved baking these for my sisters and I when we were kids but when it came time for ME to do the baking, it didn't turn out right. I add half the salt and I use half a cup of crisco and half a cup of butter (never margarine) when making these. I have yet to try the instant pudding idea but I will give it a go the next time I make cookies!!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
For those of you leaving out the cardamom, you are MISSING OUT! I cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups and I used homemade vanilla sugar instead of plain sugar. The drink turned out FABULOUS. I've given it as gifts and everyone I've given it to LOVES it. My kids add a teaspoon or two of this mix to their hot chocolate to "spice it up" I've added it to my coffee in place of my favorite creamer. FABULOUS!! Thank you so much for sharing this, Jo!!!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Simply amazing!! I followed other reviewers' advice and let the eggplant sweat for 30 minutes first. I added 1/4 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb mix, as well as some garlic powder, rosemary, thyme and oregano spices. (No idea how much, I just sprinkled it in) I also baked at 450 F for 7 minutes each side. At this point you can do SO MANY THINGS with the sliced, breaded and baked eggplant. (I'm thinking sandwiches, dipping them in marinara sauce, eating plain, etc.) I made this more of an eggplant parm lasagna though by layering the sauce, then the eggplant, then the cheese, three times over. EXCELLENT!! I should note: I used 3 BABY eggplants for this and it was more than enough.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This chili is FANTASTIC! We aren't vegetarians so we do add meat, but I add ground turkey and ground chicken. I used to use the lMcCormick chili packets but I hated not really knowing what we were eating. THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!!! Since we aren't that big on spice I cut it down to one jalapeño, 1/8 cup chili powder and I omit the canned chilies. Simply perfect! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I have made this several times (once with chicken breasts) and every time it's FABULOUS!! Like many other reviewers I used Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) and I cut it down to 1/2 a cup. I also drizzle lemon juice over the pork chops (or chicken) just before they get tossed in the oven. These are fantastic!!! A new family favorite (and this is a family that thought we didn't like pork much!!) This recipe works well with chicken breasts too, but you'll need to use thin chicken breasts (I beat mine with a mallet to about 1/2 inch thickness).

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
I have made many Saturday morning pancakes in my life so far, but these are the best. It's silly really, I used to use lemon juice to turn the milk to buttermilk, but I never let it sit very long. I followed the directions here exactly: vinegar instead of lemon juice, letting it sit for five minutes or longer, etc. My husband could not stop raving about how these were the best pancakes I'd ever made. He said "Whatever you did this time, do it every time from now on." I can't promise I will only use this recipe from now on, but this will be definitely be my main recipe from now on. :)

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!!!

Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I have a friend in college who grew up in India. His mom made this dish often. I learned from her the order of ingredients is important. I heated the oil, added the spices and brought it to a simmer. Then I added the onions (and some more oil as needed) When the onions were almost done, I added the garlic. Then I added the water and tomatoes and brought it to another simmer. Finally I added purred ricotta cheese (which I substituted for the sour cream) and topped the whole thing off with the chicken. I put it in the oven for about 25 minutes, checked the temp of the inside of the thickest piece and then put it on top of fresh cooked rice. It was AMAZING.

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!

Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
My family and I have been on a smoothie kick lately and this fit right in. I thought mixing orange juice and milk would be a little odd but tried it anyway. Pretty good!! The next time we made this I dumped the milk (sorry) and added strawberry yogurt instead. I didn't use coconut oil or flax seed meal and I added frozen strawberries and blueberries too. Great recipe though!! We had a lot of fun coming up with other ways to incorporate Kale into our morning smoothie!!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
So delicious! I took the advice of several other commentators on here and put the chicken and spices in the crock-pot during the day and then sauteed the rest at night right before assembling them. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! It is our go to dish for rushed days.

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!!
