Hi Elizabeth - Happy New Year! Many people are wondering whatever happened with Round 4 of the recipe contest. Was there a winner? Will there be a round 5?
Jan. 5, 2011 1:07 pm
Thanks Elizabeth.. of all those recipes, I've tried #4 the Sweet Potato Casserole. I can see why it was ranked as one of the top 10 - it truly is fantastic.
Jan. 5, 2011 2:14 pm
Not a one! Sorry! I have enjoyed a good number of new recipes from this site this year, but not one of them is on your top ten list. Thanks for the hard work to keep this site running! Am looking forward to what new things you have for us this year.

I havnt tried any but will be trying the Marinade for sure

I tried the Chicken Marsala and the Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole. I made crepes to that were wonderful, but I am not sure if it was that recipe or not? The chicken marsala turned out pretty good. Although, I just used wine I had on hand. And, it is not a quick or low cal recipe. But, we did not care for the sweet potato casserole at all. There is another one from on here that I use and really like. I thought this one had no flavor and the toppping just tasted like over-cooked pecans, not sweet, crumbly, and tasty, unless I did something wrong? The first 3 are good picks as they are always requested along with the alfredo sauce though.

We have used #3 several times. I may try the Chicken Marsala this year. We're not extremely fond of sweets.
Jan. 5, 2011 3:03 pm
Yep, the crepes were the ones I made. They were perfect!
Jan. 5, 2011 5:05 pm
I can't believe the Donut muffins didn't make the list! LOLOL!
Jan. 5, 2011 5:18 pm
@Pam - 3 boys Mama: Sorry! We took a break for the holidays! We'll be back in action later this week. :)
Jan. 5, 2011 6:10 pm
The best-steak-marinade-in-existence has become a staple in our house! We make extra, aside from the actual marinade, and cook it a bit so we can use it as a dipping sauce. SO good!
Jan. 6, 2011 10:41 am
I love the Chicken Marsala at Carraba's, so I'm going to try this recipe.
Jan. 6, 2011 2:53 pm
I added most of these recipes to my recipe box. I can't wait to try them out!
Jan. 6, 2011 6:28 pm
I've made the chicken marsala many times. My husband and I love it! Thanks for all the great recipes.

I was wondering which brownie recipe is it that's photographed in What's Cooking? This Week at Allrecipes? Those brownies look fabulously outrageous! I know a few people who would love to go into a chocolate coma on those brownies! Please please point me in the right direction... mahaloz!
Jan. 6, 2011 11:31 pm
Best brownies are my fall back recipe whenever I need to bring something for a crowd, I have yet to have had complaints about that recipe. I think they really are the best brownies I've ever eaten :) I'll have to check out the other recipes on the list too :)
Jan. 6, 2011 11:41 pm
I have made the pulled pork and steak marinade from the list above.. both were EXCELLENT and are now part of my regular meal plans. Thanks allrecipes.com!!
Jan. 7, 2011 12:21 am
Hi, Happy New Year and thanks for such a wonderful site!! From the top ten I have only tried #4 the sweet potatoes which I did not actually care for; I will surely not make it again - it tasted too much like a dessert. I have tried many other delicious recipes that have not made it to the top ten and have enjoyed them all!
Jan. 7, 2011 3:30 am
I have made the sweet potato caserole and the no bake cookies and they are some of my favorite recipes. I'm anxious to try the crepes with some Nutella and bananas. I always thought you needed a "crepe maker" for those. A question on the chicken marsala, I really want to try it. Do you know of a good substitute for the wine if you don't use alcohol?
Jan. 7, 2011 4:44 am
a million thanks elizabeth. who needs cookbooks these days ? when an idea hits me, instead of searching the volumes of cookbooks i have, i immediately access allrecipes. i have tried the sweet pot casserole, it was a wee bit too sweet for my taste buds so toned it down a tad and it is the best ever. ive always "hated" sweet potatoes (thats after 20 years in the navy and trying "their" version and am really happy now that i like them especially as they are allegedly good for one.
Jan. 7, 2011 6:03 am
I have made the pulled seveal times and is now my go bbq pork recipe. Thanks for the work that is done by your site and look forward to using more or the recipes on the site. I already have over 300 in my recipe box. And have tried over 3/4 of them.
Jan. 7, 2011 6:27 am
I would like to know which brownie recipe is it that's photographed in What's Cooking? This Week at Allrecipes? Those brownies look amazing. The photo on the best brownie recipe doesn't match. Just wondering.
Jan. 7, 2011 7:20 am
The slow cooker pulled pork has become a favorite with my family! My teenage boys absolutely crave it, for good reason it is excellent!
Jan. 7, 2011 7:59 am
Not one of these recipes is anything I would ever try. Crepes? Every cookbook has a pancake recipe & this is nothing special. Sweet potato mush? Every cookbook in the free world has ten variations on this one. Did anyone try anythign UNUSUAL???
Jan. 7, 2011 8:09 am
What's your answer to the pictured brownies/cake? It looks like something called "Texas Cake."
Jan. 7, 2011 8:13 am
I have used the "the best chocolate chip" recipe and it's truly that! My DH and I always fail at making choc. chip cookies and this recipe is successful every time. I'm going to try the pulled pork for sure.
Jan. 7, 2011 8:22 am
The correct name for the "brownie/cake" picture is Texas Sheet Cake. (It's made in a cookie sheet) My mom used to make it when I was a little girl.
Jan. 7, 2011 8:37 am
I have made the sweet potato casserole and it was fantastic! I made it for Thanksgiving and again last week. Even my daughter who doesn't like sweet potatoes likes this and my niece has been asking me to make it again! Thanks for the recipe.
Jan. 7, 2011 10:04 am
Hi there! For those of you that are wondering - the photo in the newsletter is a photo a member took of the Best Brownies. :) Members sometimes modify the recipes slightly but it looks like member Chrysanthi (who took the photo and submitted it to Allrecipes) made the brownies and frosted them while they were warm, making them look like a delicious, gooey version!
Jan. 7, 2011 10:05 am
Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences with these recipes! Chicken Marsala has definitely become a staple in my house, too!
Jan. 7, 2011 11:02 am
I saved and printed most of the recipes on your list! I can't wait to try the chicken marsala and the brownies!
Jan. 7, 2011 11:05 am
Texas Sheet Cake has cinnamon in the recipe, no honey & pecans in the icing...NO M&M's. The 'brownies'pictured look dry or stale, which a true Texas Sheet Cake (cooked properly)is not.
Jan. 7, 2011 12:28 pm
I am new to allrecipes and I love it! I have taken some recipes and made fabulous dishes, it gets me out of the same old rutt. Thank You! Thank you! Thank You! Everyone... lilwobbies
Jan. 7, 2011 12:39 pm
this is for MSRM, I tried the Tangene Chicken and it was fabulous, sometimes when cooking you have to add your flare to the recipes that suit you. I put other veggies in this recipe. Lighten up and enjoy the journey... Much happiness to you Lilwobbies
Jan. 7, 2011 1:31 pm
I have used allrecipes.com for years now. It is the first place I go to find ANY recipe. Now my daughter uses it, three nieces use it and anyone else I offer cooking advise to, I send here first. No others are as easy to use, nor find whatever you are looking for. Thanks Allrecipes! You're the best!

I tried the no bake cookies. They were very easy to make and everyone loved them. Will add them to my christmas cookie list. Love this website. Thanks
Jan. 7, 2011 6:57 pm
I have made the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies MANY times ~ we love them! I have added a few of the top ten to my recipe box and will be making them soon!
Jan. 8, 2011 8:05 am
I have made the pulled pork many times and have discovered that using a brand name root beer ( I use A&W) there is a difference in the taste. This is keeper at my house.
Jan. 8, 2011 4:07 pm
I love coming to the AR site! Even though some of us try "tried and true" recipes, I'm glad there are opportunities for people like me who love "different" recipes! I'm surprised by and pleased with the amount of information I keep on learning here!
Jan. 8, 2011 5:33 pm
I haven't made any of the top ten receipes but I did add a few to my receipe box. Since I started using this site my husband has been raving about all the new and yummy foods I have been cooking.
Jan. 8, 2011 5:33 pm
the pork was awesome..have made it several times and the sweet potato was good too. those are the only 2 I've tried but this is where I get all my recipes now and I have started about 10 newcomers to the site in the last 2 weeks...great!
Jan. 9, 2011 4:38 am
Try allspice to flavor beef stew, add to personal taste
Jan. 9, 2011 7:40 am
i tried #5 and #6 this year - we LOVE the alfredo sauce, my 13-year-old son was just asking why we don't make it more often! and no-bake cookies are one of my all-time faves, since an aunt brought them to a party when i was about 6. i can't make them because then i EAT them ALL! lol now that i have a printer hooked up again, we'll be printing more and trying more this year - i've already used the wonderful spicy garlic-lime chicken recipe from near the end of the year and it was amazing! a wonderful, easy company dish!
Jan. 9, 2011 1:10 pm
I only made #10- Basic crepes- one of our faves; we even had them today.
Jan. 10, 2011 6:55 am
I made the sweet potato casserole #4 for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas. Hugh hit. Just made the pulled pork #1 this weekend and my husband loved it. I have tried so many of your recipes that are not on the list. Those I've tried, I really enjoyed. Keep up those awesome recipes coming.

I've made the chicken marsala 3-4 times and LOVE it!!!
Jan. 10, 2011 10:03 am
I gotta try the crepes and the steak marinade. And if my husband is extra good I'll even try the brownies. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time and effort to post their recipes and photos on Allrecipes.
Jan. 10, 2011 12:08 pm

Jan. 11, 2011 9:30 am
I tried the chicken marsala. It was amazing!!! My family loved it and requests it often. :)
Jan. 11, 2011 1:41 pm
Well, I have to confess that I look up the pulled pork recipe A LOT! maybe that's why it's Number 1! Every time I make it some one wants the recipe so I email it to them. All of my grandchildren, neighbors, friends and church love this tastey dish! and it's sooo easy!
Jan. 12, 2011 5:53 am
Sitting here watching it snow (12 inches and counting) and finally got around to checking out this list. I have a very similar pulled pork recipe but I use cola instead of root beer. I haven't used any of these recipes but I plan to starting with the no bake cookies. I received some of these in a cookie swap and loved them.
Jan. 12, 2011 2:54 pm
I made the brownies this morning! I only had a little white sugar and subbed brown for the rest-still REALLY good and needed no icing IMHO. They were fast and easy to throw together before work and baked while I was getting ready :) Going to do the potatoes tonight... and I HAVE to try the pulled pork soon!
Jan. 20, 2011 12:57 pm
Chicken marsala was yummy! I plan on trying the Alfredo sauce, brownies and cookies next!
Jan. 23, 2011 12:32 pm
