Anzac Biscuits with Macadamia Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
These cookies are habit-forming! I've used this recipe several times because I love the taste of macadamia nuts and coconut. The only thing I do differently is add more water; about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons. The mixture will not hold together for me otherwise. For a uniform product, I press the cookie dough into a small cookie scoop, place them on an airbake cookie sheet then flatten them with a greased and sugared glass bottom (make sure it's flat-bottomed.) At 12 minutes, they are chewy; at 15 minutes they are crunchy, as stated.

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
We all loved it. I only strayed from the recipe by using more mushrooms. The add-in possibilities are endless. Next time I might try adding pine nuts...or not. It's delicious the way it is. Thanks for posting!

Sweet-n-Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Super easy; always well received. I usually use grape jelly since that's what I have on hand. Do try!!!

Classic Fish and Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I used swai (basa) fillets with this recipe and it turned out great. I chilled the batter an hour before using, as suggested by a reviewer, and sure enough, the batter thickened nicely. Keeping the temp steady was easy with an electric skillet. Will definitely use again!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Delicious! As per others, I used half the amount of sugar and found it quite sweet enough. Same feeling the second time using this recipe using cranberry vinegar instead of raspberry. Very versatile, I'd say. Do try it!

Spicy Lamb Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
These were a great departure from beef patties...enjoyed the zing nicely tempered by the refreshing yogurt sauce suggested.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This recipe has consistently worked well for me. I use it all the time. It's soft and tastes great. Just a note if you're feeling creative, don't try putting too many sesame seeds on it like you see in Italian bakeries. They really overpowered everything. I have to think back to my childhood and remember if that was a heartier bread.

No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Love it! Love it! And we like mayo, too. It's a great all around dressing to doctor up or not. Do try it! Leftovers a long time in the fridge, too.

Butt Stompin' Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This sauce is terrific, with just enough heat to make it addictive! I was unable to find fresh habanero peppers so I used dried ones. The only mistake I made was to puree everything at the end since I was after a smooth basting sauce for baby back ribs. The aeration from the blender made the sauce lose it's slick, rich color, so I won't do that again. I will probably just dice the onion much smaller next time. These are not for the faint-hearted!

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Oh, yeah! These rolls are the cat's meow, awesome, da bomb! I, too, have baked up many a disappointing batch of rolls. These are what I have been looking for. Nice with or without the onions on top. Try them with Dan's Favorite Chicken Sandwich from this site and some pan fried pickled jalepenos. Oh, WOW!

Ponzu Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
My family and I loved these sandwiches! I must confess my cilantro was out of a tube and I had to use dehydrated jalepeno, but still, the taste was wonderful. My chicken marinated for three hours, but longer would be even more flavorful, I'm sure. I thought the melted Swiss cheese was going to be weird on it but it worked. One thing I might try differently next time is slice the chicken so it will stay on the roll better. The cubes kept falling out or perhaps I will cut the cubes smaller. Do try the recipe and see what you think!

Glazed Cornish Game Hens With Apricot Pistachio Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
These hens are a wonderful holiday or company entree making a lovely presentation. I'm glad I read the other reviews; even at 350-degrees the hens started to get dark brown before they were cooked through, so tenting with foil may be needed. Keep a watch on them. Also, there is not an abundance of fruit or pan juices, so if you like lots, you might want to increase the amount of fruit and deglaze the pan with chicken broth or white wine at the end. Definitely worth making!

Coconut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
This is a delicious quick bread; better than the recipe I've always used. The second time I made it, the only slight changes I made were to include a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract along with the other extracts, which gave it a nice flavor and to chop the coconut so the bread wasn't so chewy. Several people asked for the recipe after they sampled it at choir practice. Do try it!

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Was enjoyed at dinner by four adults. We thought the amount of heat was perfect. The seasonings lean toward Cajun but I served it with the Italian dish Pasta Pizazz from this site. It worked pretty well ( with more garlic in the pasta, but that's another review.) Try this recipe, you'll not be disappointed.

Honey Peanut Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
This has become my starting point recipe for granola, although I agree with GrannyLooHoo and have reduced the sugar and oil content and have added a little cinnamon. Also, I often add dried fruits but only after the granola has finished baking. That way the fruit stays soft and doesn't stick to your teeth, if you can chew it at all! The exception to that is coconut; I like mine toasted, so I add it with the rest of the ingredients if I'm using it. Enjoy; you may never buy granola again!

Grand Marnier Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
These are GRAND (!) and have become a regular item for company and gift-giving. Note: A small piece goes a long way. I found mini chocolate chips work best; standard size sink to the bottom. I believe most people will enjoy these brownies.

Yogurt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This recipe turns out well time and time again. I usually don't have lemon yogurt on hand. I use it when I do, but normally I use plain yogurt and double the amount of lemon extract. It's a winner; thanks for posting.

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
What a wonderful soup!! After reading the reviews, I used only 6 cups of stock and found it to be just right. It wasn't bad without the cream, but I crave that velvety goodness of cream soups. Use a dusting of curry powder or not; delicious both ways.

Celery Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
I prepared this yesterday for a potluck. Rummaging in the fridge I found two bunches of celery. Came right to allrecipes.com to find a salad using a lot of celery. Bingo! Used toasted walnuts and cherry flavored Craisins. Delicious! Hubby said its a keeper!
