Creamed Cucumber Slices

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I have made it several times and we like to add a bit more vinegar (reminds me of gramma's!) and also added dill one time like one user had suggested. The sauce is a perfect consistency. Thanks so much!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Absolutely amazing! I was looking for a carrot cake to take to the inlaws for Easter and not only were the *stars* rating the recipe awesome, our son's name is Sam so I had a fondness from the start. I have never been a fan of carrot cake; however everyyyybody in my husbands family loves it. when I took this I felt like a rockstar at all of the praises, oohs and ahhs :) And, it's true - it was DELISH! Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that will ALWAYS be my carrot cake staple.

Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Awesome! This is definitely a five star recipe, but I made personal changes to make it a 10 star for us! I added 1/4 cup of sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon to the dough from another reviewers suggestion. I cook at lot but am not an experienced baker - I was nervous to make them but they were SO EASY! The one mistake I made was I melted the butter (it was in a stick in the fridge) and than mixed together the brown sugar and cinnamon with it, then spread it over the dough I had rolled out (about a 10x14 rectangle). So when I went to roll it up...it squeezed the mixter out to the end of the roll and made a huge mess (my fault!). I ended up having to scoop up the mixture that squeezed out and spooned it over the top. Next time I will take the instructions from another cinnamon roll recipe on here and use a pastry brush to brush on the butter, then just sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over it. the idea to cut it with a string - genius! I put it in two round cake pans, covered in fridge over night. Took them out the next morning and let them sit for about an hour and then baked at 375 for 20 minutes. Great New Years day breakfast! Awesome!

Easy Spicy Mexican-American Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
Awesome! I did not change a thing but increasing the amount of chicken and sauce. I put 8 small, boneless, skinless chicken thighs in an 8x8 baking dish. For the last 5 minutes or so I flipped them over to really immerse them. Paired with Mexican Rice III on allrecipes and corn cake - spectacular!

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
WOW! I love mexican food and this is going in my favorites. I did make a few small changes - fried up one medium onion with the beef, 10 ounces of salsa and one can of cream of chicken soup and then topped it all off with 16 ounces of red enchilada sauce, then more cheese. We like them to be really wet so I added more sauce although I had to cook about 8 minutes longer. All in all super good - I was skeptical about the cream of chicken soup but it was fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
We have made this exact recipe several times for ourselves and friends and it always gets fabulous reviews! It is a little time consuming so I make them early and put them in the fridge until ready to cook. I actually like the sharp cheese poppers as opposed to the cream cheese ones so the last time I made them with just sharp cheddar and they were awesome, too. Thanks so much for sharing something that I will never have to buy frozen and deep fry myself again!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
ARE YOU KIDDING ME! This crust is the BEST homemade crust ever! We rarely get "take out" pizza since we really enjoy making our own. However, we've also tried lots of dough recipes and never really found one we love - well this is it dangit! EASY and absolutely fab! We typically (because we've made it several times now) do one pizza and one cheese bread - fantastic every time! Thanks, Jay, for ending our perfect pizza crust search!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
We are huge fans of gumbo and make it 3 or 4 times a month. How I've never ran across this recipe is shocking to me - but made it last night for the first time and it rocks! Our favorite by far! Did not have red chile peppers so I used a good tablespoon of red pepper flakes and my "bunch" of fresh parsley from the store was huge and I was worried it'd be too much so I chopped up a heaping cup and that was perfect. Our guests raved and my dh and I couldn't be happier with our new favorite gumbo - affectionally called Stomp Gumbo in our house. Thanks so much for sharing!

Stuffed Shells with Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Yummy! I have made this in the past and the recipe I had did not have egg in the shell mixture - that really helped them stay intact. I was just shy of the 2 cups of mozerella so I added a 1/2 cup of feta. I also thought that there was going to be way too much sauce but continued to follow the recipe and it was just the right amount. Our family thought this was "the bomb"! Thanks!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I've been making a variation of this recipe for a couple of years now. I received the original recipe from my friend whose mother in law is spanish. I add garlic and a little bit of diced green peppers, pepper, and cumin (or cumin seeds). I've also used bottled lemon juice if I do not have fresh limes on hand. Do not add the seeds if you don't want it hot. I sometimes use jalapenos in place of serrano's (I have them on hand a lot) - don't use the seeds in them either unless you want hot! She also taught me that if you have any left over that's been sitting for a few days (or have "mealy" tomatoes) you can fry it up in a pan, put it in a jar in the fridge til it cools and it will get a consistency of a store bought jar of salsa. I've only done that once or twice because we rarely have any leftover - but it's equally as good! Thanks for sharing - I always have people asking me for the recipe and I actually don't have it wrote down anymore as I just make it by eyeing...now I can point them to your recipe. Fabulous! Thanks!

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I have never made any sort of bread be it banana or zuccini. However I searched for a recipe because everyone seems to be giving us zuccini and we had a surplus of bananas. IT WAS SO GOOD AND EASY! My husband said it reminded him of being a boy sitting at his grandma's kitchen table - a very nice compliment as she is a great cook! I have since made this several times now as we still are getting lots of zuccini although I suspect that the givers of the zuccini just really like the bread in return! Thanks so much for giving me the confidence to try MORE baking - this bread was awesome and easy!

Sausage Gravy III

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This was my first attempt every at sausage gravy and I've really only made gravy a few times before this. EASY though and delish! My husband said we will NEVER buy sausage gravy in a can again and I totally agree. The second time we made it we used hot sausage and made it over biscuits with omelets for breakfast - too die for! Thanks for sharing!

Grandma's Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
We loved this! It is more cake like but holds up well to eat with your hands - put some in the kids lunches (goes well with coffee this morning too!). I ended up putting three cups of zucchini because I over-shredded and just tossed it in. It is very thick and "pudding" like. I put it in a 9x13 pan and cooked for 30 minutes. I don't have to worry about hiding zucchini- kids will eat it - but it is not terribly visible for those who do want to hide it (chocolate covers it up). I had a ton of M & M's left over from something else so, crushed those up, sprinkled on top, for fun. When the bumper crop of zucchini rolls around every year this will be a staple!

Home Made Farmer's Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I'm glad I read the reviews! The first go round I had about a 1/4 cup of cheese and thought - that doesn't seem right? So I read the review that stated what was left over and still white, boil again. And VIOLA! This time instant curdle! Fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe and the helpful reviews!
