Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Best biscuit recipe I've found yet! Easy enough to make for breakfast with my 17 month old running around my legs and a hungry 135lb Mastiff growling at me and still come out perfect in no time with no changes at all to the original recipe!

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Excellent quick-fix dinner! Toss it all in one pot and skip the oven. I took some of the other reviewers advice and mixed in a can of chili beans (and I also used beef broth in place of the water) and simmered everything together (along with a few special ChefHouse ingredients to kick up the heat a few levels!) for about 20 minutes on the stove. Topped with cheese and served with sour cream and warm tortillas and tada! A great weeknight meal in no-time from the stay-at-home dad/grad student!

Tomato Green Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
This recipe was a fantastic and filling meal when combined with salad and homemade bread sticks, even for a meat-eater like myself! I made a few changes, as I didn't have any fresh tomatoes on hand, so I substituted with one 6oz can of tomato paste and one 28oz can of crushed tomatoes. Since I also didn't have any fresh basil, I substituted about 2Tbs of dried and by the time it was on the table everyone in the room (and even my 2 year old from his high chair) was giving the soup rave reviews! Definitely a keeper!

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
Fantastic recipe! I made only a few minor adjustments, including about 1/4 cup corn meal into the breading and a few extra spices like seasoned salt and extra red pepper since I'm a pepper head! I couldn't fit all the chicken I made in my skillet, so I decided to try it both fried and baked (based on some other reviews) and found that both came out crispy, juicy and delicious. Definitely a keeper in my book!

Oven Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
These were very good and had a terrific flavor, but I'm still a little disappointed in the crispiness. Some things I guess can only come from scalding hot oil!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Fantastic!! My wife has been on a no-dairy diet since the arrival of our newest little bundle of joy and I've been HURTING to find recipes that use no milk products and still taste like something you actually want to eat! With the simple modification of using vegan margarine in place of the butter we've found one of our newest favorites! Thanks so much for a super recipe to help cure our sweet-tooth!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Fantastic Recipe! We had this for Christmas breakfast and couldn't have asked for a better cold-weather treat! I did adjust the recipe a little, but only by baking the recipe (as is) in a 9x9 metal cake pan and adding about 10 minutes to the cooking time since our 2 year old was excited about making a B-day cake for Jesus on Christmas morning. The strudel topping made an excellent "icing" and he had several big pieces all by himself. Delicious, moist, and filling, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Fantastic! My wife iseven on a ZERO-dairy diet so I had to substitute soy milk (with a little vinegar) and margarine for the butter and buttermilk and it was STILL amazing! It definitely took a LOT longer to cook than the directions indicate (mine took over 2 hours) but still comes out moist and delicious. This one is added to the recipe book and will be brought out regularly!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Fantastic! I found myself short two-pie crusts on Thanksgiving afternoon when the two refrigerated crusts from the store turned out to be far too small for my apple pie. - ONE TIP - Don't be surprised when even a single recipe rolls out FAR bigger and thicker than you expect. Mine went into the pie pan far thicker than most pie crust recipes, but I got rave reviews and had many requests for the recipe. This turns out wonderfully moist and flaky. Perfect for a moist pie like apple or cherry where the extra crust helps hold in the filling.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
ABSOLUTELY fantastic! Don't change a thing if you don't have to! The only thing I modified was I was to leave out the nuts because of a 3 year old who is allergic. I have never tasted a more delicious and moist coffee cake! Couple that with the incredible simplicity of this recipe and you've got a 5-star recipe that is my new go-to for breakfasts and family get-togethers. Thanks so much for the amazing recipe!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Perfect! I MIGHT have added just a touch of cinnamon and a tsp or so of vanilla, but nothing that would fundamentally changed the recipe and it could not have been better. Far and away the best banana bread recipe I've ever tried. I mixed up everything other than the dry ingredients in my KitchenAid - threw everything in at once - and then folded in the dry ingredients by hand. Only two dishes to clean up. I then baked on the next to lowest rack in the oven for about 50-55 minutes and it came out browned and beautiful, smelling like banana heaven! Look no further - the banana bread recipe for everyone is right here!

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
Fantastic flavor! I'm a spice-loving man so I doubled the ingredients for 1.5 lbs of ground beef and took the advice of another reviewer to brown my meat in water. You would have thought you just sat down to dinner at your favorite Tex-Mex restaurant! This one is definitely going in my box as the go-to taco recipe. Thanks for a super recipe!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I made this one to spec to be fair and found a number of serious problems: 1. The dough comes out extremely dense for a cinnamon roll - I even cut back by almost a full 1/2 cup and, while the rolls rose in the oven, they were still quite heavy. 2. The filling was terribly dry - I think this could have been influenced by the consistency of the dough, but while the lack of any kind of fat (i.e. butter) in the filling may make these a little healthier there was nothing to allow the cinnamon/brown sugar mix to properly melt and give that gooey consistency you tend to crave in a cinnamon roll! (Besides, who's going for healthy in a cinnamon roll anyways?) 3. The icing needs some major work - this is little more than a basic sugary glaze. Combined with the sand-like brown sugar/cinnamon filling which dissolved into pure sugar in your mouth, this topping was the sugary straw that broke the camels back and simply overpowered the entire recipe. I was interested to try a new recipe, but know now that I'll stick with my original cinnamon roll recipe - "Clone of a Cinnabon" - also from Allrecipes

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
My absolute go-to bread recipe even in a recipe box overflowing with bread recipes! By simply following the steps you can't go wrong and this is quite possibly the most versatile and adaptable bread recipe on the entire site. I've made it just as written and gotten rave reviews and taken other's advice, dropped the sugar to around 1/4 cup, and had the same people raving again! The sugar content definitely makes all the difference in the world with more sugar equaling a denser bread. I've used this recipe to make everything from sweet breakfast breads to salty herb-filled Italian bread by tweaking the sugar and add-ins and just couldn't be happier with it either way. Take the time to give this one a shot and you may just toss your other recipes - with this one, one is all you need!

Herbed New Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Super easy and delicious change to plain old potatoes. Might be even better with the addition of a little garlic.
