Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
Ok, did anyone else have issues with parmesan cheese not blending and getting clumpy? I used a good quality cheese but I think parmesan is too hard of a cheese for this dish. I'd like to try again with a softer, higher moisture cheese like mozzarella for a creamier texture. Maybe then the recipe could be 4 or 5 stars.

Italian Love Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
Pretty awesome when you need a change of pace from a regular cake. My ricotta layer went to the middle which made for lovely layers. Made the cake and chilled in fridge the day before frosting. Made a half size in 9x9, used 1/2 devils food cake mix, but full amount pudding. Baked in about 55 min, in a word YUM!

Classic Gingerbread Cutouts

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
A great simple base recipe. I tripled the spices, doubled the salt, and used 1/2 c molasses and 2 tbsp water instead of 2/3 cup called for. It was perfect, good flavor and not over the top sweet if you are frosting these. Also used 2 pieces of parchment paper to roll out so I didn't have to add flour to the dough. I rolled mine thin and only baked 6 min. Mmmm, soft and yummy!!

Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This is a good basics recipe, but I too think you need the boil the initial ingredients for longer, 2-4 minutes, long enough that the sugar crystal's start to dissolve. I personally use only 1 1/2 cup sugar for the full recipe, or 3/4 for half recipe. I don't love these cookies, but it works on a warm summer day when the craving for chocolate and PB hit!

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Ok, so I really want to like this recipe, I mean I really want to, especially because me and yeast do not get along to well. But even with all the suggested modifications, increasing flour, 1 egg, baking powder, etc, I found this to be spongy, dense, and overall nothing like what a pizza crust should taste like. Dang it, I will give it two stars for no yeast and ease of on hand ingredients, but sorry to say it is not a pizza crust.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This recipe is a good template, but has a lot more depth and flavor if you use brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. Also double the water in the sauce. With those adjustments 5 stars

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This is a good basic recipe, that you can make lots of alterations to suit your taste. We used sausage instead of the beef/pepperoni and it was great. I don't understand the need for the oven, we just mixed the cooked noodles with the rest of the ingredients in a skillet and let simmer with a lid for 15 minutes, and perfect. No need for the extra baking time.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
This is a good basic recipe, but need to add atleast 1/2 - 3/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla for best flavor. Also I used 2 1/2 cups flour because I am at 4000 ft elevation and it was perfect dry to wet ratio.

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Yes, this is a great recipe! The first key lime pie and I have no need to look further. It is simple, light, fluffy, perfect level of tart and sweetness. I used a premade graham crust, and whipped cream from a can and it was delish! Next time I will add some fresh lime zest as well! Also I didn't freeze the pie but for a few minutes prior to serving for easier slicing.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This recipe is good, probably the best lasagna on allrecipes, however it isn't perfect, The sauce to noodles to meat ratios are off. Too much sauce & meat, too little noodles. If you want to keep the noodles to two layers called for so it fits in the pan use only one can of tomato paste and 1 lb of sausage and no or only 1/4 ground beef is enough. Be sure to use good quality italian sausage. Also use more than 16 oz ricotta is good if you like it cheesier. The slices of mozzarella add a nice touch, but shredded works if that is all you have on hand.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I thinks it pretty crazy that 1280 people actually reviewed a baking recipe that doesn't have vanilla extract and salt, the two most crucial ingredients. I think this recipe is great with following changes: 1-2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp salt, increase milk to 3/4 cup and use buttermilk if you have it. Also if you want a lighter texture you really need to use cake flour, if you don't have any make you own by replacing 2 tbsp of cornstarch in 1 cup of all purpose.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Heaven

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
These really are quite heavenly! I followed the recipe to exactness except I added some extra PB (about 1/4 cup) and a bit more salt because I use unsalted butter. Baked about 11 minutes to perfection, not to under or over baked! I thought the flour was right on but I live at 4500 elevation, at sea level I would decrease it a few tbsp! Also you can half the recipe fo a smaller batch!

Ultimate High Altitude Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I really appreciate that someone has finally offered their high altitude recipe for cookies. So many recipes say no change for high altitude but it isn't true, I baked at sea level for years and when I moved to Utah to 4500 ft I had to make adjustments to all my recipes so I did have flat gooey messes. While this recipe might work for the authors altitude, I find at 4500 ft the following changes perfection, only 3 cups of flour, reduced white sugar 2 tbsp, 2 eggs, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp real vanilla extract (it makes a huge difference) and 2 cups of chocolate chips. If you can refrigerate the dough for 1-24 hours is best to let flavors meld. With those changes absolute perfection!

Guy Approved Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I think meatloaf is one of those dishes that is a just a springboard for adding your own flavor flair. I really like this recipe because it introduces BBQ sauce instead of ketchup and bacon, (both big winners for the dudes in your life). The dry crumbs/chips can be substituted for whatever works for your tastes, I used cornbread crumbs and it was fab! Also we like a little heat so I added red pepper flakes, 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce, and 1 tsp creamy horseradish, also added a few tbsp of milk to make it easier to mix. Adding extra BBQ sauce on top is an absolute must!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Pretty tasty if you like oatmeal, oats give the cookie height, texture, dimension, while the pb to flour ratio is just right! I decreased the butter 1 tbsp because I am at a higher elevation.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Hugely disappointing and waste of ingredients! They came out so flat, overly sweet, even after cutting back on sugar & choc chips. Way too crispy, and the chocolate chips melted to pan because they repelled the greasy dough. I should have known better than to try a cookie recipe with melted butter, cool whipped butter is best for a light cookie.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
These tasted more like cake puffs than cookies. I don't know how they have gotten such amazing reviews, nothing about them resembles the proper texture of a cookie, I guess if you want cake.
