Upside Down Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
I orginally rated this recipe a few years ago and felt I needed to re-rate it with updated comments. The only thing I do different from the original is to use 1/2 brown and white sugar. This was the first recipe I made from allrecipies.com and it continues to be one of our favorites for the holidays. My husband calls it "pumpkin surprise" and he looks forward to it every year. :)

Alison's Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
I originally rated this a 5 in 2004. I've been making it every couple of months since - so yes, it's still a family favorite. I do agree with those that say that there is way too much salt and pepper in the original recipe - use as much as suits your taste! I've also started using beef broth rather than water and bullion and it makes a big difference - great flavor without all the salt.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2004
I made this tonight exactly as on the recipe and it was very good. I will definitely make it again, however, I think I'm going to play with some spices... maybe add some chili powder to add some spice.

I've made this a couple of times and have received rave reviews every time. I add celery to the original recipe and it is wonderful!

Too Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
I tested this recipe out on my daughter and boyfriend yesterday and they really liked it (as did I). Easy to make and yummy. I made a few changes - I used a large can of sliced cling peaches in Lite syrup (drained) and used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I also used honey wheat bread (it was all I had) and I topped the whole thing with a nice sprinkling of ground cinnamon. I served warm (not hot) and topped it with whipped cream, which was good, but my boyfriend thought it would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
This was OK... too salty (and I only used a pinch of salt. This is definitely not a 2-helping dish. If I do make this again, I may add diced green chiles to the egg mixture and use a mexi-melt cheese combination (even mild cheddar was a bit "much" in this recipe); a more mild, creamy cheese might work better.

Baked Brunch Omelet

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2004
This was simply, "OK". IF I do make this again, I'll add diced green chiles and a smoother tasting cheese blend (maybe monterey jack & colby). Also, no salt! I may also toy with other meats such as breakfast sausage rather than ham. This was overrated as is in my opinion.

Honey Mustard Beer Brats

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2004
So I took this recipe and cut corners... it worked! I sauteed onions in butter in a pot and then added 4 12 oz beers, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/4 cup dijon mustard; heat to boiling. I boiled the FORK-POKED ONCE bratwursts (I only buy Johnsonville) for 20 minutes. After that, I grilled the bratwursts for 20 minutes and they came out beautifully brown. The beer-onion mixture I simmered the whole time on LOW until 5 minutes before the bratwursts were done. I drained the mixture so that the onions and pepper remained.... what a heavenly topping! Serve on buns!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2004
I made this for a vegetarian guest who was the only one amongst meat-eaters (we had NY Strips and he had the mushrooms)... frankly, most of us were dying to try the mushrooms! He raved about them and requested the recipe immediately!

Three Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2004
OK, here's the deal. These were good (instant potatoes and all) but quite a chore to make; not to mention kind of messy. Also, it boggles my mind how anyone is able to mix ALL THAT CHEESE in this recipe. I found myself using only 1-2 slices of American and 1/2 of the other cheeses; the recipe still turned out very good. The onion adds a nice flavor also.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2005
One word to describe this recipe.... YUMMYYYYYYYY!!!! I used whipped cream cheese so I wouldn't have to hassle with whipping a block of it. I also added a box of banana cream pudding mix to the recipe. Took it to a dinner party and it was a hit!

London Broil I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
Absolutely delicious! I have never had such a flavorful and tender London Broil! My fiancee was VERY pleased as well! I didn't have soy sauce on hand so I used worcestershire sauce and a dab of teryaki sauce. In addition to ketchup, I also added 2 tbsp KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. Whatever you do, poke lots of holes with a fork (front and back) and marinate overnight... oh, the flavors!

Elbows and Ground Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2005
My mom has made this dish since I was a little girl. Like her, I add 1 1/2-2 cups of water and some garlic to the sauce and actually cook the pasta (1/2 of what the original recipe calls for in the sauce once it comes to a boil. I sometimes add a tsp of chile powder for a slight kick.

Bahamian Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
The presentation was nice but the flavor was just "ok" to me. Also, my husband made the mistake of squeezing the lemon on the fish before he tasted it and overwhelmed the fish. Mahi mahi is a mild fish, therefore, the baked lemon flavor was all it needed. I may try again and play with different spices and herbs.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
This was really good. I did what others suggested and used another can of chicken broth rather than the water. I also, in the interest of time, used a store-bought rotisserie chicken and shredded it rather than boiling or roasting my own. I also added a can of whole pinto beans (drained) rather than black beans (I'm not a black bean fan). Together with tortilla strips, sliced avocado and shredded cheese... YUM!

Squash Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
Wonderful recipe idea! I made some substitutions for some of the ingredients (diced zuchini and yellow squash instead of acorn squash and 1/2 a yellow and 1/2 a red pepper rather than a green pepper). I also didn't use flour to coat. I dipped the chicken in beaten egg and then seasoned breadcrumbs. As others did, I used a toothpick to hold everything together. I didn't pan sear the chicken... I baked them for 40 minutes. They came out sooooooo yummy!
