Unbelievable Grilled Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2003
One word = YUM! Ok, two words also...RICH! Was very easy to 'whip up' and very pleasing to eat! If you don't like garlic...run! Will make again and again...such a nice compliment to grilled steaks/bbq foods. :)

Crumb Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Ok, fellow bakers, IF you like apple crisp (or some call it apple brown betty) and IF you like apple pie....then the two of them just married quite happily to this Crumb Apple Pie! I use a already made Phyllsbury Pie Crust (plus since it comes with two pie crusts I always make one for us and one to give away!). I peel and thinly slice the granny smith apples and mix them in a bowl with the white sugar and 1 T of cinnamon...it makes a really nice sugary, perfectly flavored apple slices to then layer into the pie crust. YUM! Definitely cover the pie near the end as suggested or it will be rock hard and over browned. This warmed on a plate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you are in dessert heaven baby! :) Thanks for the recipe..love it!

Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
{12/2007:An update to my review: I have simplified this for me (and hopefully you!) I use half and half for the 1T and 1 Cup (instead of milk) AND, here's the kicker ...instead of having the three spices (cinnamon, ginger and cloves on hand) and the solid pumpkin...I use instead PUMPKIN PIE MIX and am done faster to boot! I was out of the size of pudding this recipe calls for and only had the larger vanilla pudding size (I think it's the six cup version...I used the whole version of that, and it turned out fabulous!!! This pie is so rich and creamy. YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!} I had this recipe before (from another source) and it got lost, so glad it was here to be found! This recipe is so user friendly...a no-bake pie..what could be easier! The flavors are so rich and distinct. Cheesecake meets pumpkin and they hit it off wonderfully. IF you like the layers to be very defined, I recommend putting the cream cheese layered part in the refridge right away and while you mix the pumpkin/top layer. This pie has even won over some in our family that weren't pumpkin pie fans to begin with! Yep, it's that yummy! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to YOU! :)

Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
I was looking for an easy recipe for an apple pie for our Thanksgiving dessert. I had NEVER baked a pie before. This recipe was wonderful! I got soooo many compliments! I used Granny Smith apples. I took the easy way out for the crust..Philsbury Pie Crust. I took the advice of others on this site and added 4 tablespoons of flour. I used a few more thinly sliced apple slices and made it heaping under the top crust. I was generous with the cinnamon and sugar and pre mixed them in a bowl all together and then put it in the pie shell. Added 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice over the top before added the bits of butter and the top crust. Gave it an extra tang/zip. LOVED IT!! I've been asked to bring TWO pies to Christmas now! So if you wanna get out of being asked to bake a pie..don't bake this one..or you'll be stuck for life! (hee hee) :) Happy Holidays!!!

Meatloaf with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2004
Is the mother of invention sprouted sometimes from desperation?? lol. I found myself w/out onion soup mix for this recipe...so going through my packets I found a seasoning packet from a box of stovetop stuffing (in which I had used the bread crumbs for another recipe). This was the only change to the meatloaf recipe. WE LOVED IT! What a nice variation from having to use ketchup or tomato sauce, etc. Will be a 'for sure' rotation in our dinner menus! Thanks for sharing this recipe w/us! :) The gravy was 'icing on the cake'..very creamy and yummy on mashed potatoes and the meatloaf!! Ok, I'll stop gushing now lol. (honestly the submitter and I are NOT related lol)

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2004
What a great way to enjoy chimichangas w/out having to deep fat fry them! Thanks for this recipe! I didn't have bell pepper (so I omitted), used about 8oz of La Victoria Mild Taco Sauce (the rest we used at the table). Looking at the recipe I forgot to add cumin (oops) and we used cheddar which I had on hand. It was truly yummy! I double the meat mixture so we can reinvent it on nachos, tacos or quesadillas...I could go and on :). I will leave in the oven a bit longer next time...I really liked it lightly browned!! :)

Joy's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
Joy has reinvented the taco salad with this yummy dressing! This easy dinner becomes a next day follow up too! I chop it fine for a salad the first night...then the next day after everything has melded overnight it becomes a tasty lunch with Fritos to scoop it up with (dip like!) Thanks Joy! Always nice to have something new to rotate into my menu for dinner!!! A+ and then some!

Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
This casserole is sooo very yummy! It's sweet, savory and sensational! I didn't have a clove of garlic so I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of granulated garlic powder. I used 2 large grade A eggs instead of egg substitute. For the taste preferences of other family members I also omitted the canned mild green chiles and the canned mushrooms. I used regular sour cream. So because of the lack of green chiles this recipe stayed to the sweeter side, but nothing wrong with that!! I highly recommend this recipe and the leftovers are great and easy for reheating. It took longer than 40 minutes for it to brown and cook properly, more like an hour, but I kept a watchful eye. Accompanied with a buttermilk Ranch pretossed green salad..this meal became a 'add on' to our list of favorites. Thanks Michele.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
This bread is wonderful!!! So banana filled...which..not ironically...you'd want in a banana bread. The bread is heavy with moist delicious flavor. I made this recipe as given and didn't change a thing..didn't need to. Will make again and again..great way to use bananas that sneak past light green to ripe to reeeeeallly ripe!! No waste! Enjoy!

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
Wendy's fast food restaurants have what is called a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough blizzard or freeze. It's vanilla ice cream with a mix-in of these round, small bits of heaven in the form of chocolate chip cookie dough yumminess! THIS is what this recipe provides. As a surprise for our recently Jr. High graduate son's party I made this recipe. The ONLY changes I made for us is NO WALNUTS (to ME AKA I call them 'dirt clods' lol) and I added the whole two cup bag of chocolate chips. This provided the mix to go further for the party and also a guaranteed chip in every cluster! Rather than the messiness of forming the 'balls' of dough by hand, I used two small measuring spoons and scooped up the dough with one and dropped little piles of the soft dough onto two cookie sheets. I froze them in the freezer for only 30 mins and then spatula'ed them into a ziploc bag and back into the freezer until dessert time. I got rave, rave reviews with this recipe. You will too. On the make-your-own-sundae bar our guests sprinkled the dough bits on top of scooped vanilla ice cream and drizzled hot fudge and topped everything with Cool Whip in a can spray. You won't regret this one people. :)

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
THE easiest recipe for bread machine bread with the most flavor ever! Thanks for the reviews that mentioned to bake on 'light' crust. Comes out perfect everytime. I always rolled my eyes when I read that some people make bread every night (why when you can buy it!) not anymore! This recipe is soooo easy and yummy (I know it by heart now!) it's so simple to make and have on hand. PLUS the family LOVES the aroma through the home...free potpourri! lol. :) THANKS!

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
Very good recipe for 'something different' from the norm' rut and routine. I did not have the 1oz. of onion soup mix (but according to other reviews I didn't want that 'overpowering flavor' competing). I did however use 1 T. of dried onion and 1 t. onion powder. My bottle of russian dressing was only 10oz. The sauce this makes tastes so very wonderful (sweet and sour chinese like) over my rice cooker's sticky rice! IF my husband and son weren't opposed I would of added onions, mushrooms and maybe bell pepper diced into the 'gravy' and let the flavors meld in the oven. This recipe is number one on the 'super easy to put together' list for sure!!! Thanks for submitting this recipe, it will go into the mix for future use. :)

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
This sloppy joe recipe is SO GOOD! I love that it is tangy, but not too sweet, zesty but not spicy. I like that it did not include green bell pepper, which is just a preference in MY opinion. I'm glad I didn't rush it and let the sauce simmer as directed because it made for the perfect not-too-sloppy consistancy. This is YUM-O to the max. My 13 year old gobbled it up with two buns and then ate the last little spoonful just with fork and plate lol. This will go on my list of 'what to make' for sure and it's super easy to pull together..it was a finger foods dinner (with forks just to pick up any stray-runaway bites of sloppy joe) with the sloppies on the buns and carrots sticks! Again YUM-O!

Pickled Red Beet Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2004
This is such a good recipe! I dislike beets a lot, but what it does for boiled eggs redeems them to yummy by my vote! Very easy recipe with great tasting results. This liquid didn't 'cover' all the eggs so I rotated the mix every so often. Thanks for sharing this recipe..reminds me of my Grandma's when I was growing up! :) (Only used 1/2 of a brown onion and it came out just fine)

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2003
Even the 'potato eyes' have it with this yummy recipe! So easy, but tastes like you slaved over it allll day with the exotic flavors! I was in a time crunch so I put the crock pot on high for an hour and was good to go! Wonderful with our grilled steaks and yummy cheese bread and salad! VERY GOOD! :)

Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
This is a GREAT way to use up dinner leftover mashed potatoes for a Saturday hot family breakfast together. What I love about this is I've tried to achieve this potato pancake to no avail in the skillet...the 'pancake' would always fall apart. This recipe is great because there's not hot oil or margarine to soak up in a skillet. The oven method gives a perfect patina, and it marries so beautifully when you eat it with a egg over medium on top! YUM-O! A biscuit or toast and you've got breakfast people! :)

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
I made this recipe today for an easy dinner tonight. (4.5 hours on high) It was SO good! I was disappointed to find that after thawing out the beef roast I didn't have 2 cans of Cream Of Mushroom soup! I was forced to use Cream Of Chicken, but all was not lost. I took another allrecipe clubber's advice and used a turkey sized oven bag to line my crock pot...it made clean up (and pouring the gravy into a serving bowl) a breeze! I will make this again for sure, and the family said to add this to our favorites! Woo Hoo..always nice to have a fresh idea mixed into the usual routine/rut recipes for dinnertime. Hope you get a chance to try this recipe too, you won't be disappointed. Oh BTW..I added seasonings to the roast before baggin' and saucing it up (powder garlic, salt, pepper and seasoning salt on both sides). YUM-OH!

Breakfast Casserole III

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
This recipe was quite good! I decided to follow it exactly since I have a tendency to want fidge around with recipes. :). So, the next time I make this I will mix the ingredients together and maybe top it off with additional cheese. We found the bottom all potato and needing something. I did season as suggested too. Also, I didn't have time to bake and such as the recipe called for the potatoes...so I washed, peeled and boiled them in salted water to speed that process. Worked out great. Thanks for sharing this casserole. We had it for dinner with fruit salad..quite yummy! :)

Pork Chop Casserole III

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
This recipe was very yummy and super easy! Only thing I would watch...which I caught on the first attempt at this...check the rice after a while in the oven and you might have to 'lift' with a fork or spoon to have the sauce get down to the rice/bottom of baking dish. Even my hubby and son loved the cooked onions since they get so soft and add great flavor to the whole casserole!
