Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
WOW...WOW...WOW! This is an excellent marinade for pork, and I bet it works well on beef and chicken as well! The only thing I did different was add 2 tbs Worcestershire because I was a bit short on the soy sauce. I don't know if that did anything to this, but I do know I will use this marinade recipe over and over again. Thanks so much for sharing it WKELLER! Awesome!

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
The "L" in BLT is for lettuce. This recipe doesn't call for lettuce, but I added about a cup or so of shredded lettuce to this salad. I also used the dry package, Hidden Vally Ranch mixed with mayo, sour cream and milk and some black pepper. Pretty tasty!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Been making my roasts, both beef & pork, this way for over 30 yrs now. I add about a tbs or so of Worcestershire to the soup mixture. This is just as good in the oven. Just roast for 4 hours at 325 degrees, covered tightly with foil. The gravy is a lot thicker with the oven method. The gravy is pretty thin using the slow cooker, but you can easily fix that with 2 - 3 tbs of cornstarch added to 1/3 cup of water, then mix that into the gravy after you have removed the roast to a platter (cover roast with foil) and let it cook in the slow cooker about 10 minutes, stirring here & there, while your roast is resting. Very flavorful and tender. The gravy is awesome too!

Great Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
I substitute parmesan for mozzarella and don't melt the butter...just soften it, mix the other ingredients in and spread it on sliced Italian or French bread. I've also used sliced onion buns, which are also very good! Much better than any frozen garlic bread.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
These are excellent enchiladas! I substituted ground chicken and browned it with the onions instead of cooking the onions separately in butter, but otherwise followed the rest of the directions. This is a keeper! Thanks Angela!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
This is a very good recipe, however, I see this exact same recipe listed on many different recipe sites, several of which are dated older than this one. I thought recipes submitted to Allrecipes are supposed to be original recipes. Am I wrong?

French Onion Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
As is, this recipe rates 3 stars from my family. With my additions, it gets 5. I add 1 TBS Worcestershire, I TBS garlic powder, a dash of red pepper and 1/2 tsp celery seed, omitting the milk. I get many raves about this dip made my way and constant requests for the recipe. People love it with pretzels!

Cranberry Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
This was pretty good. I don't much care for cranberries in a recipe...too tart for my taste...but this was good. I do want to say that I am tired of posters like "Auntie Pat" as her/their reviews are always based on healthy ingredients, as if they are the food police and know better than the rest of us. This is NOT a site based on healthy ingredients so she, and others who feel the same, should just stick to sites that only promote healthy living. If I wanted only recipes that are good for me and my family, I'd seek them out. OK? LOVE this site!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
This was awesome! I did change it a bit...don't we all, LOL? I used no sodium chicken broth vs water (omitting the chicken bouillon granules), added some diced carrots, which I lightly sauteed with the potatoes, onions and celery first, replaced 1/2 cup of the milk with Half & Half, a tad more black pepper, a few shakes of garlic & onion powder, pinch of nutmeg and added about a 1/2 cup of Velveeta cheese (I know...some folks think this is a bad cheese but I love it!), which I cubed for easy melting. I served it with a side garden salad and homemade baked crusty french rolls! Family LOVED it and thought it was the bomb!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Been making my beef & pork roasts this way for years. Only I don't brown them first and I roast them for four hours at 325 degrees for a 3 - 4 lb roast. I also use beef broth vs vermouth or wine, the onion soup mix and roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup for the beef roast and chicken broth, golden onion soup mix and cream of celery for the pork roast. The meat falls apart and is very tender & moist. The gravy is wonderful and you don't have to do a thing to it.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

This was good, but not great. Too bland for me so I will not be making it again.

Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
I have never bought a tri-tip roast before and found it to be very tough. The marinade was pretty good so I gave it 2 stars, but the cut of beef was too tough for grilling and we couldn't eat it. Maybe better in a very slow oven or crock pot?

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I made this cake this morning. I made it exactly as written and followed the directions to a "T" with no alterations. It baked for 60 minutes. It did not cave or fall. The blueberries did not sink to the top, they stayed throughout the cake just fine. I waited until the cake cooled completely (about an hour) before inverting it onto a plate and it came out of the bundt pan beautifully with no sticking or breaking apart. And the taste? Simply amazing!!! I think that, too often, some cooks do not follow the recipe as written, adding their own touches and experience, but then wonder why the recipe did not turn out well for them. Or maybe their oven isn't heating properly and it's time to have it calibrated. Or perhaps they live in high altitude areas and provisions need to be made for this. I don't know...but I do know that this cake, made as written, is a wonderful cake that I will make over and over again. Thank you so much for this recipe d newman!

Mom's Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
Been making grilled cheese sandwiches like this for years. I add a sprinkle of garlic powder to the Parmesan butter before spreading and spray the pan with a light coating of olive oil for a very nice crust.

Onion Pan-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
This was quick and easy and very good too! I followed directions as written. Used Olive Oil as it does not smoke at higher heat. Worked perfectly. Had no problem with onion soup/flour mixture adhering to the chops. Just added some garlic & onion powder and pepper and I did cook the chops for about 20 minutes, flipping every 3 or 4 minutes. These were great! Thanks for the recipe OP!

Quick Taco Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I have been making this for many years now, but instead of using corn chips, I make taco shell bowls out of burrito sized flour tortillas and serve it with taco sauce on the side like a salad dressing. Just use oven safe small bowls (soup size works best), invert them on a cookie sheet (only 4 will fit each sheet), spray them very lightly with oil and place a tortilla over each bowl. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 - 10 minutes. Let cool for about 2 minutes then remove the shell from the bowl and continue to cool a few more minutes on a rack. The tortillas will take on the shape of the inverted bowl while baking. They are light and crispy and I think taste much better than corn chips.

Easy, Cheesy Tortellini Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I just cannot suffer kitchen snobs! So what if the ingredients come out of jars/boxes/bags? It's all in how you put it together! This was fast, easy and more importantly, tastes good!

Calico Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I have made this dish for years, but I've always called them "Cheater Beans." In place the of kidney beans (not a fan), I use pinto beans and Bush's Bourbon & Brown Sugar Grillin' Beans in place of the baked beans with pork. Instead of 1/2 cup of ketchup, I use 1/4 cup and another 1/4 cup of chile sauce with a dash of hot sauce for a little kick. I also use a pound of bacon and cook it separately from the ground beef and onion, to give it a crispness. Cooking it chopped with the beef/onions can make some of it burn and not cook uniformly. I cook the bacon in strips, then crumble into the rest of the mixture after it cools and drains a bit. And I use a whole sweet onion. This dish is wonderful for potlucks, BBQ's or just a simple, delicious mid-week meal!

Amy's Sensational Summer Salad

Wonderful. I like the idea of using blackberries like in the photo by member LMF443, who reviewed this back in 2009 and submitted a photo for this recipe.
