Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
WOW!!! This dish really had my taste buds going wild with the flavors of SWEET AND TANGY at the same time. At first, I wasn't sure if I liked it because of the strong tangy flavor then all of a sudden you tasted the sweet. A very nice fun balance of flavors {****}, compliment it with a COLD BEER and it rates {*****} Great job Mollypitcher, and thank you for the COAL-PACKER Barbecue recipe.

Corn Bread Hamburger Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
This recipe is a easy, delicious, 5 STAR Comforting Recipe. I followed this recipe as directed and it was wonderful. The only thing I didn't care for was it was a little scant on the corn bread topping for our preference. We Love Corn Bread! I used a 10" Cast Iron skillet, next time I will use a 8" C/I to condense mixture for a single recipe. I have since made this recipe a second time and doubled it in a 10" C/I skillet. I made a few changes my husbands preference, he likes tomato based foods but doesn't like the the texture of tomatoes or pepper. {He drives me insane when he picks them out of a beautiful dish}. I wasn't going to puree a good salsa. I always have extra unopened packs of taco sauce {that come with the boxed taco dinners}. It's a little sweeter that salsa but no chunks for my husband to pick out. My husband and children loved it. I prefer Carol's Recipe with salsa. Omitted Steak Sauce. My family doesn't care for their veggies mixed with their meat, so we had wax beans on the side. Wax beans are very enhanced with this dish. I think Cast Iron skillet works best with this recipe as it gives a nice color and crust to the corn bread topping and brings a comforting presentation to your family table. If you do not have a C/I skillet use a dark 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan. Glass baking dishes need to be cooked longer, and the food is not as golden, so the food tens to get overbaked when we're looking for that golden color. Also follow directions on side of box for corn b

Apple Betty

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2004
A Quick and Easy recipe. The orange juice made the apples a little to mushy, so I will omit it the next time. I would like to play around with some spices to sprinkle directly on the apples for more flavor [APPLE PIE SPICE]. The crumbled topping was very delicious and held the pie together very nicely after it cooled for about 1 hr. I love the idea of the pie plate, looks so much nicer setting on the table than a 9x13 baking dish. Gives your table a nice warm, comforting feeling while you eat. Presentation say's alot along with the wonderful smell. ENJOY.

Brown Sugar Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
For a change of pace on your pork chops, this recipe was good. Boneless pork chops were used in my recipe and cooked for 20 min. I had my doubts when I first lifted the foil, because they looked like boiled pork chops. I continued cooking without foil for 10 min. expecting them to glaze, which they did not. We all liked the AUJUS sauce, but the pork chops did not absorb the flavor of the juices. I will try again with a few changes. As is, I rate it a "3", but has great potential to be a "5" with other reviewers suggestions.

Apple Dumpling Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
L..ove this recipe. So easy, so simple to make. I used macintosh apples, because I like the sweet tart taste. [FILLED THE 9X13 DISH 3/4 FULL WITH THICK SLICES because of the settling of the apples cooking.] I did make a change to the liquid part of the recipe, because I do not use vegetable oil. I substituted 1/2 cup of melted Butter[1 stick] and added it to a 1/2 cup of Canola oil. It looked very oily, so I added 1/3 cup more of sifted flour, just enough so it was not sliding around the bowl, but still wet looking. I crumbled the wet dough on top of the apples and baked. The aroma was heavenly, and the topping was the most beautiful golden brown and flakey.[Forgot to pat down the batter]. We really enjoyed the taste and texture of this recipe. Thank you Amy S. for this "Recipe Box Keeper". PS. Apple Pie Spice added a nice touch to my apples for my second Apple Dumpling Cake.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2004
The best part of this recipe was the topping. PERFECT. Crunchy and Golden. I followed the recipe as directed to the tee, but the apples came out to mushy for my taste. My apples were even sliced into big slices. Next time, as suggested by the PIE TROUBLESHOOTING AT ALLRECIPES, I will only use half the amount of water, because their is plenty of juice in the apples. I give this a 3 star as written, but has the potential, to be a 5 star, because the crust on top is so good and crunchy.

Nana's Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2004
You can see that fall is right around the corner here in Pennsylvania, with the abundance of squash at the local farmers market. I love acorn squash, but it takes to long to cook, the conventional way. You can't get any EASIER than this recipe. Just be careful on the cook time. If your squash are small, use the minimum amount of time, so as not to over cook. Thank you Corinne for a quick and delicious recipe. AUTUMN HARVEST KEEPER.

Dad's New Zealand Mince Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
HUM..Interesting dish. I would say this is a tweaker recipe. A good base, but you would really have to modify this dish to your taste. Maybe the amount of curry? I followed as instructed! Reviews from my family were, edible, but ple...ase do not make again. Sorry, it's just not for our taste buds. I like trying recipes as they are written, not when you have to tweak them, otherwise they become MY, recipes. TWO STARS for EDIBLE, and DELETED from my recipe box.

Peach Cobbler I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2004
REFRESHINGLY WONDERFUL, SIMPLE AND EASY. We truly enjoyed this cake topped cobbler. Followed recipe as directed, except I sliced the peaches in large slices. Because of my past experience with cobbler, if the slices are to small they turn to mush. I also doubled up the batter, that's just our preferance, because we like a good golden cake topping that absorbs some of the peach juices. As the other reviewer noted, and I agree, we had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It really hits the taste buds nicely, anytime. This is "Recipe Box" keeper. Thank You V. Monte

Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
With the abundance of fresh summer fruit, "Fruit Cobbler" caught my eye. My daughter and I followed the recipe as directed including the peaches. Because my daughter loves berries, she asked if we could mix in some assorted berries. In they went. I like nectarines, in two went with the peaches and mixed before adding to the batter. The Taste and texture of the mix of fruit and berries was so DE--LICIOUS!! Thank you Lenna for such a versatile cobbler recipe. The hardest part of this recipe was deciding on "WHAT" fruit or berries to add to this recipe. My topping was a little scant, probably because of the extra fruit, so I will up the batter 1/2 more next time. IT'S A VERSATILE KEEPER!

Mom's Potato Puffs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
I like to try recipes as they are written. This recipe brought back memories of what my mom use to make called, dofinkles , which kind of tastes like a potato donut hole. ( Back then they were somewhat bland, and we would dip them in pancake syrup or sour cream or sprinkled powdered sugar.) Today my two children and I made the potato puffs and they tasted as bland as they did 30 some years ago. I got such a good laugh, because I knew what to do, get out the pancake syrup, sour cream and powdered sugar and let the children decide on their own topping. We had alot of fun this rainy day, and the children enjoyed these as snacks. Family rating, 5 for fun, 4 for toppings 3 for potato puffs. Nice Memory. Thank You

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: May 17, 2004
Beautiful looking icing. Consistency was wonderful. Quick, easy, and I had all the ingredients on hand. I sifted my powdered sugar in one bowl, then creamed my wet ingredients with the shortening in another bowl and added my powdered sugar, heaping tablespoon, one at a time to mix thoroughly for 5 minutes. My only complaint is that it was to gritty sweet for my taste, but looks great on a cake and was easy to make.If you like sweet icing, this one's for you.

Banana Loaf Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
I had 3 banana's that were so-oooo ripe, black was so close to being their new color. They were going to be snack for my horses, when I just happened to be browsing Allrecipes, and came across this recipe. I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. WONDERFUL!!! Quick, Easy and very Moist. Sorry Shasta and Brigg's, no more banana's for snacks. Back to the carrot's and apple's. Maybe I'll give them a little taste for their sacrifice. Thank you Sandi.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2004
Applauds to Carol.The BEST chicken breast ever. I am not a enthusiastic chicken lover and I find it difficult to find a good moist chicken breast recipe with flavor. The recipe calls for 2 tsp.of garlic crushed(not 2 cloves).This could be why everyone says to double up on garlic because they are counting cloves instead of teaspoons of garlic. I used 7 BIG cloves of garlic and upped the oil 1/4c and bread crumbs, Cheese combo 1/4c for 6 breast. Baked for 30 min. Per--fect. This is not fried/baked chicken. This is a Exquisite dish and the aroma is Heavenly. IF there are left over,place on a salad for a nice lunch. Encore
