Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This is a fabulous recipe for quiche! It is very forgiving if you want to play with the fillers too and use different combinations of vegetables and meats.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This recipe is fabulous! I'm a huge fan of fresh basil, and this recipe hits that mark! Everyone who tried it loved it. Rainbow rotini, with its subtle vegetable flavors and rainbow of colors, really makes this a standout side salad. I always enjoy finding a recipe that has a fantastic base, but that is flexible enough to add my own twist. You could add any of your own favorite fresh vegetables and this would still be amazing. I found I only needed about 3/4 of the dressing, but it was so delish that I saved the rest in the fridge and am going to try it on a green leaf salad. Thanks Jeri for a wonderful recipe!

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This recipe is great as is. Sometimes I substitute the white sugar for brown sugar and it comes out great either way. The brown sugar gives them just a little less crunch, but a richer flavor. I like to serve these for a Thanksgiving day appetizer and they're always a hit. For a spicy twist (sounds crazy, but sweet/spicy is a favorite of mine) try adding a little touch of cajun seasoning or cayenne pepper to the recipe. This gives you a pleasant little kick in the taste buds! Thanks, BJ, for a great recipe.

Give your Aunt Jerre a hug from me! This recipe was absolutely devine. My husband devoured it. And I couldn't get enough either. Easy to make and the flavors came together beautifully. Thanks for a fantastic recipe. Your Aunt Jerre deserved FIRST prize!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I've made this recipe twice now, to rave reviews. The name says it all. My search for a great lasagna recipe is at an end. I refuse to take away any stars, because this is fabulous, but will say that you should consider leaving the salt out of this recipe. The salt in the recipe, combined with the salt in the Italian Sausage resulted in a salt overload the last time I made it. I will simply omit the salt called for in the recipe, and expect this to remain the World's Best Lasagna! Thanks, John!

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Wow! This is one of my all time favorite recipes from this site. And that's saying something since I get most of my recipes from here! This recipe is a bit time-consuming, but I promise you WILL NOT be disappointed with the results. These are better than restaurant quality since you have complete control over what you put on top. Don't skimp on anything in the oil/spice/cheese coating, and don't change the cooking time/method. Those are the keys to success with this recipe. You will impress whoever is lucky enough to partake in these fantastic potato skins.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Wow! This is devilish! Great recipe. Used this on chocolate cupcakes and have to say this may have been TOO much chocolate. I know, hard to do, right? I will probably use this for a yellow or white cake and let this frosting be the standout chocolate flavor. A word of warning; when you start to add the sugar/chocolate/vanilla, you will think you've done something wrong, because it just doesn't look right. But stick with it. The milk smoothes everything out and gives you a spectacular result. Thanks, Amy!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
My search for a great chicken enchilada recipe is at an end!!! This is IT! To some, this may look like a complicated recipe, but take the time to make it. I promise you won't regret it. I was asked "Why don't you own your own restaraunt?" when I served these. They are THAT good! I'm not a huge fan of boiled chicken, so here's what I did - substituted the boneless, skinless chicken breasts with split, bone-in chicken breasts. Seasoned with a little taco seasoning, wrapped them loosely in foil and cooked in my slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours. When done, I took them out of the slow cooker and let them rest 20-30 minutes in the foil. This made shredding them very easy. Fantastic recipe!

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This is my go-to Snickerdoodle recipe. Very easy to make and absolutely wonderful! I don't keep shortening on hand, so substituted the same amount of butter, and they were still a dream. Great recipe!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a good recipe. Relatively easy to make and the result is a nice, crispy, home made fry. I tried the batter both thick and thin (as called for in the recipe) and my husband and I liked the thin batter better. Cooked these in the deep fryer at 375 for 9 minutes. Very versatile base recipe that can be spiced to taste. I could see using this on any type of vegetable to deep fry. It's very popular in restaraunts these days to serve battered fried green beans, cauliflower, broccoli and even asparagus! I think this would work well for all. Thanks, Cassie!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
These were great burgers. Made one change; I'm not a huge fan of green peppers, so I substituted with a jalapeno. At Trooworld's suggestion, I served these on whole wheat buns with pepper jack cheese, avocado slices and roasted red peppers. Wonderful! Thanks for a great veggie burger, Lauren!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was FANTASTIC!!! The recipe was very easy to follow and the results were incredible. My first time cooking lamb, and I came off looking like a pro. I am going to try this recipe with beef. I think the dijon mustard rub and bread crumb coating would be equally delicious on a prime rib or beef tenderloin. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Hong Kong Sweet and Sour Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This was awesome! Thanks for a great recipe, Betsy. I used cornstarch in place of potato starch and simply rolled the marinated pork pieces directly in it, skipping the egg bath. This worked out well and saved significant time. I also forewent the double frying of the pork. Even after these modifications, this was still a 5 star recipe all the way. Bravo!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Oh my! This is absolutely, hands down, the BEST chocolate cake I've made/tasted. It's so dark and dense. Perfectly moist. I topped it with Rich Chocolate Frosting from allrecipes, and the flavor combo was nothing short of spectacular! Definitely my go-to when I need a major dose of chocolate! Marsha, you're the bomb!

Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
Wow! I made this recipe for a group of hungry guys and they all raved about them. I made mine in spring roll wrappers, and a bit bigger than traditional lumpia. I've since made this recipe again and used to fill egg rolls. I must say that the filling has a bit too much pork for traditional egg rolls, which generally have more veggie than meat. I'm going to try again, but cut the pork down to 1/4 and double or even triple the veggies. This is a fantastic recipe that will show you just how easy it is to make roll filling and give you a great starting point for your favorite ingredients. I intend to try this with diced shrimp, veggies and celephane noodles. Mmmmmm....
