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

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!

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!

Butterhorn Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Fantastic!!! I made these last night for our Easter lunch today and would have never imagined that the bread would get more compliments than any of the other dishes that I worked FAR harder on! A couple of tips: 1) DO NOT ADD EXTRA FLOUR!! When you mix this dough together you will SWEAR that you've made a mistake. It will look far more like a batter than a dough, but after a long night in the fridge your "dough" will emerge as a beautiful, light, and fluffy dough that will produce some of the lightest and fluffiest rolls you will ever eat! 2) 1/2 inch is a little thick for a roll. I rolled these out to at least 1/4 inch (if not a little thinner) and when rolled up into a crescent they came out beautiful! Give these a shot! You can't go wrong!

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!

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!

Super Squash

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
Fantastic! I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand so I used what I had and it STILL turned out awesome. My 5 year old had 2 servings and my wife said it was one of the best side dishes I had made in a long time - and I do all the cooking in our house. I used Miracle Whip in place of the Mayo, and subbed a packet of dry Onion Soup mix in place of the ranch mix. This is now in the recipe box and has become a new family favorite!

Rosemary Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
Simple and Fantastic! Used all the ingredients that most anyone would have on hand in their kitchen and produced a BEAUTIFUL cut of pork. I didn't alter the recipe a bit other than to stuff the slivers of Garlic down in some holes poked in the loin and this thing came out as great as some pork dishes I've had at 5-star restaurants here in Dallas. TRY IT - you won't be disappointed.

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!

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.

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!

Shelby's Microwave Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Awesome! Raising three kids has made me MORE and MORE appreciative of short-cut recipes like this one! I double the sauce to serve on the side and have meatloaf (my 7 year-old's favorite!) on the table in 30 minutes flat.

Super easy and delicious change to plain old potatoes. Might be even better with the addition of a little garlic.

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!

Chef House's "Mature Moment" Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
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!
