Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2014
OK, so after reading a ton of these great reviews, here's what I came away with.. and it works out wonderfully! I doubled the recipe (I mean, who only wants one loaf!), using 3 eggs instead of 2, 3T of oil instead of 2, added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla. Once the batter was in the pans prior to baking, I placed a few cranberries and nut pieces directly on top, then sprinkled the loaf with sugar-in-the-raw. All of these were suggestions I garnered from reading numerous reviews. Thanks to the allrecipes.com community for taking a great recipe and perfecting it!

Chicken Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
This is a good base recipe to be adjusted depending on personal taste preferences. My suggestions: Unless you *love* celery, leave it out, definitely mix the chopped avocado in with the chicken, tomatoes and bacon. The dressing was a tad bland even after I added garlic powder and a splash of white balsamic vinegar. We ended up squeezing a little extra fresh lemon juice over the top of the salad (placed on a bed of mixed greens) and it did the trick. I would also use red onion instead of green onion. I sprinkled the top with a little crumbled blue cheese and slivered almonds, which I would repeat (perhaps walnuts instead).

Sylvia's Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
These ribs are easy to prepare and delicious! They stand up to the highly touted, laborious, all-day, jump through hoops recipes I've been given over the years. The sauce is really the key, it's fabulous.

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
As a confirmed chocoholic, I'm surprised to find this is my now absolute favorite cookie. Made them for the hubs, who is a molasses/ginger nut and WOW. Rich, chewy goodness! Made NO changes to the recipe..how original. ;)
