Absolutely Amazing Ahi

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
I've made this twice and will make it again. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is way too much soy sauce in this recipe. I cut the soy sauce in half and we liked it much better. I also added a mango for color. (The picture shows some orange color as well). Very tasty. I had to lightly pan sear my tuna because it wasn't sushi grade. I served with cold white rice as a meal and even my kids loved it! Thank you for the amazing recipe!

Flourless Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
I have made these brownies several times and love them! No one in my family is gluten free, but we still devour these brownies as quickly as I make them. I would definitely recommend changing almond flour to almond butter. It makes a huge difference in the texture. I also subbed the rice flour for gluten free baking flour and found that also helped with texture. I have also tried one cook's suggestion to only use 2 TBSP butter and 1/4 cup canola oil. That was an amazing brownie, especially when I melted chocolate chips all over the top. I have found the bittersweet chocolate chips a little overwhelming, so I use half bittersweet and half semi-sweet. Thanks for sharing this incredible recipe!

Mom's Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Gave this recipe 3 stars as is. I do think oatmeal has a great flavor and this recipe could be great if tweaked. Mix oatmeal and milk and heat in microwave for one minute. Then add the rest of the ingredients, including an additional 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour, whole wheat flour or flax meal. If you don't have buttermilk, add 1 TBSP lemon juice to milk and let sit for 5 minutes before adding to oatmeal. Enjoy finding your own yummy pancakes!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
True rotisserie chicken taste! I chose to use pieces, as another cook suggested. I marinated them overnight and cooked them covered with foil for 1 hour at 300, then uncovered for 30 minutes. They were a feast for the nose and eyes! I attempted to make gravy and for the first time ever I was successful! It was so incredibly easy and I didn't have to season it or anything. We served it with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Really, really good. I have to agree with another comment that I think its the cooking method, not the seasonings that make all the difference. My husband has already asked me to make it again! Thanks for the amazing recipe!

(Gluten Free) Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
Wow! Amazing! Dessert can be delicious without the gluten! I subbed 1/2 the peanut butter with almond butter for the cookie and cooked it 13 minutes instead of 8. I also used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar. Because several others had mentioned it was sticky, I spread butter in the bottom of my stoneware jelly pan and no problems. This was my first try at gluten free and it was a success! I made these for a friend who is gluten free, but my son ended up eating half of them! Thank you, Jewel! I will make these again!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
Tastes like a banana bread - nothing spectacular. Very simple recipe. I prefer mashing bananas. Could stand for more bananas and some spices as others have suggested. Very moist

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
Fantastic! These muffins are light but full of flavor. I have made these muffins three times, each time varying the amounts of white vs. brown sugar, flour vs. oats and oil vs. applesauce. Each time they have come out incredibly delicious! My favorite was using only 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup oats and cutting down flour by 1/2 cup, using 1/2 cup oil and 2/3 cup applesauce. I did not have pie spice so I made my own (see Allrecipes Pumpkin Pie spice). We love these muffins and will continue to make them again and again! Thank you for such an incredible recipe!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
Hearty, healthy and delicious! These muffins are great for breakfast, but even better for a quick afternoon snack. I did make them healthier than the original recipe using some suggestions from other cooks. I replaced half of the flour with Whole wheat, substituted 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup honey for white sugar and substituted plain yogurt for the oil. I agree that the muffins were very sticky when they were warm but didn't stick to the paper at all after completely cooled. I will make these again, probably subbing more white flour with oats or flax meal. Thank you for these fantastic muffins!

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
These would be better with more juice, but the recipe never says how much you need, so you guess every time. I ended up with about 1/4 cup juice from 2 cups of strawberries. The muffins were dense and heavy. The taste was good, but the texture leaves much to be desired. If I try this recipe again, I'll go my own way with it.

Whole Grain Spelt and Flax Seed Pancakes - Got Berries?

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
The batter definitely needs to rest for at least 5 minutes or you will have flat, thin pancakes. I ate the first pancake and the flavor was like flour. I added a little vanilla and cinnamon and the flavor was palatable. We smothered them in homemade strawberry syrup (thank you Chef John!). I was disappointed because I am trying spelt flour out on my family and was looking for some good recipes. This was not one of them. I'll try a different recipe next time.

Cottage Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Everyone loved this meatloaf. Following others' suggestions, I did eliminate the tomato juice and add a little more ketchup and 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce. I also subbed Italian Breadcrumbs for plain breadcrumbs and we left out the red pepper just because we don't like that flavor. The meatloaf was a little mushy at first, but the longer it cooler, the firmer it became. I really liked the tang the mustard gave the meatloaf and my kids loved the sauce on top. Will make this again.

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
First, this cake is yellow, not white. This cake was also flat, gummy, and not edible. I followed this cake recipe exactly as written. The batter was very running, but after reading the reviews, I wasn't concerned. I put it in a 15 X 10 as specified. After 20 minutes of baking, the cake tested done and the edges were browned. After cooling for 20 minutes I cut into it and it was as many reviewers have said - the cake was wet, gummy and flat. Very disappointed. I have used many cake recipes from the All Recipes sight and never had a problem with a 5 rated recipe before. I will not be making this one again.

Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
Love this yummy, easy recipe! I followed some reviewers' advice and added 3/4 cup more pumpkin and extra spices (a little Allspice, doubled the cinnamon). The result was two very full, very yummy pumpkin pies. Thank you all!

Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
Yummmm! I don't think I can go back to jar sauce after making this delicious tomato sauce. I made it twice in one week. I did cut down on the amount of tomatoes by half(because that was all I had) and cut down on the pepper as others recommended. I also left out the chili powder just because we don't like it. I added a tsp of dried basil. The tomatoes were very acidic so I added a little extra sugar and 1 tsp baking soda and cooked for 2 hours instead of 1. The sauce was thick and oh-so-yummy! Will be making this again and again!

Mango Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This salad is a beautiful combination I would not have put together myself. I'm so glad I tried it! (Have to admit, I left out the carrot - the color just didn't seem right in this beautiful salad). We don't like our salads dry so mixed up a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar with a few teaspoons of brown sugar, dash of salt and pepper, to taste. Wonderful tangy sweet salad. Edit - we tried spinach and mixed greens and liked it even better! I would highly recommend using those instead of red leaf lettuce.

Grilled Squash with Piquant Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Five stars for the grilled squash. We loved it, without the sauce. The sauce is not great. I decided to switch the amounts of yogurt and mayonnaise and it was much better. Did not add taco sauce but added Asian chili sauce. Very light and tangy. We put it on grilled chicken marinated in a yogurt & lemon sauce. Very good.

Gramma Momo's WW Pancakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I was surprised at how good these tasted! The grainy texture might throw some people off who are used to white flour pancakes, but the taste is so yummy! My kids loved them and so did I! I decided to take some reviewers suggestions. I added an additional 1/2 tsp of baking powder and cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup. The pancakes rose well and had a wonderful sweetness to them. If I had had applesauce I would have used it as suggested, but I didn't so I added 3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil. I just couldn't stand the thought of pouring 1/2 cup of oil into my pancakes. They turned out wonderful. I think I'll add 2 tsp cinnamon next time when I make these again with the applesauce. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!

Coconut Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Scrumptious! I made this for my mom's birthday and everyone raved about it! The pound cake was moist and just the right density. The crisp outside was a wonderful surprise. Awesome recipe! Every year my mom requests a coconut cake for her birthday. Usually I make some kind of layered coconut cake with frosting. This year I wanted something different so I tried this recipe. I'm so glad I did! We are going to make this again and again and again! Thanks to all the reviewers who suggested adding a little more coconut extract. We love coconut so I doubled the amount in the cake and in the glaze. Then I toasted some coconut and sprinkled it on top when the glaze was still warm. I left it overnight and served it the next day since many said it was better the next day. I also put the coconut into the food processor before adding it to the cake and I substituted buttermilk for the milk because we love our pound cakes heavy. YUM! I'm looking forward to tying different things with this recipe - like adding pineapple.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Want a real rating for this recipe - unchanged? Here it is. Blah. Not bad, blah, just ok blah. These muffins are just OK as is. I made another batch added a tablespoon of lemon juice, another 1/2 cup strawberries (to total 1 1/2 cups) and 3/4 tsp cinnamon. Much better. I would have rated them a 4. Then I took the advice of several reviewers and changed the flour to 1 1/4 wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour, changed the canola oil to Greek yogurt, added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and changed the sugar to 1/4 cup brown sugar. The muffins were heavier, denser, drier, and not very tasty. My kids said the best part of the muffin was the top that I had sprinkled with chunky sugar. They also stuck to the muffin wrapper. Not much of an improvement from the original recipe in taste. Rate those a 3 also. I think I'll move on to another strawberry muffin recipe that will yield a better tasting muffin.
