Steve's Famous Garlic Home Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Super easy and super delicious. I used three cloves of garlic for half the recipe (3 cloves for 2 potatoes), and it came out garlicky enough for me! A great addition to brunch.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I liked this recipe, but it's a bit different from the one I often make with sour cream or cream cheese. I added five cloves crushed raw garlic, a little pepper, and about a teaspoon of finely chopped fresh rosemary. That much garlic might be too strong for some, but we enjoyed it :)

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
My boyfriend really liked this. I still prefer the Korean style short ribs (sliced thin), but these were tasty and tender. I used chicken stock instead of beef stock, and I thought the flouring and frying of the ribs was a nice touch. Served over brown rice cooked in chicken broth.

Glenn's Marinated Pork Shoulder

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
My family is not big on pork, so I never had much growing up. Pork shoulder was on sale at the supermarket and I picked up 10lbs...the price was too low to resist. I was at a loss as to how to cook it, and wasn't expecting much, given my lack of experience with pork. I used this marinade overnight in a nearly airtight container and it was up there with the best meat I have ever had. (We barbecued it.) Substitutions: I used red wine vinegar instead of white vinegar, and added a pinch of Old Bay.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Spaghetti carbonara is possibly my all-time favorite food. This recipe is good, easy, and true to the principles of the dish: eggs, parmesan, fatty pork, and pasta. I recommend sauteeing the onions until they are super soft. Rich (I get the feeling this is an Americanized version of the dish) but good.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I liked this, and I had three guys helping me making it, which cut down on the prep time. We went to the Mexican grocery market for fresh chorizo, and bought saffron boles there as well. (Thanks to the reviewer who pointed me to Mexican saffron! Or azafran, as the package label calls it.) We steamed mussels and added those. Yummy. You can also add the steamed "juices" from the shellfish to the paella sauce, if you so desire. The rice turned out wonderfully. I gave this whole recipe four stars as I wasn't thrilled with it necessarily, but it was good and certainly worth making. The rice was five star rice for sure.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
I made this last night, with chicken, and it tasted like what you'd get in a restaurant. So said my boyfriend and his roommate, anyway. I used peanut oil instead of vegetable oil, and did not use the tamarind pulp because I couldn't find it at Safeway. (The Asian + Hispanic foods aisle failed me!) Instead, I used lime pulp. Nor could I find chives, oddly enough, so I used green onions instead. I chopped the peanuts in a food processor, and added a little extra (1.75 cups instead of 1.5). If you're a meat eater, I seriously advise the addition of chicken and/or shrimp. You can add these in the beginning stages (with the oil + garlic), and they'll make it a more filling dish. Remember to soften your noodles in SUPER HOT water for 25-30 minutes. Oh, and I think 1/2 cup is way too much oil. I love oil as much as the next person, but if you use enough to cover the bottom of the wok (1/4 cup or so), that should be plenty.

Chocolate Caramel Nut Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
It's delicious, for sure, but how could you not throw those ingredients together and end up with deliciousness? I could only eat three or four bites at a time. That kind of detracted from my enjoyment of the pie. It was just too rich. But that was the idea, I guess.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2004
I loved this banana bread. I know one reviewer commented that this is not supposed to be a banana spice bread, but I modified the recipe a little anyway. I added toasted walnuts, chocolate chips, a little cinnamon, and some vanilla. I made it in my dorm (apartment-style) room, and the whole loaf was consumed in less than 15 minutes. Never underestimate hungry college students.

Blue Ribbon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2004
These cookies worked for the whole family. My parents, who don't really have a sweet tooth, enjoyed the non-frosted ones, and my brother and I really liked the ones I spread with Sugar Cookie Frosting, also from allrecipes. I found the dough really easy to work with and not too greasy.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2004
I remember making this last year...I was surprised that a dessert made with olive oil could taste so good! I brought a batch back to college from winter break and my friends and I finished them in no time. I too recommend using a serrated knife to slice.

Sour Cream Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
This recipe has replaced a years-old favorite. It's really incredible. I too add some cinnamon to the sour cream mixture, and I add 1/4 c rolled oats and 1/4 c chopped walnuts to the cinnamon topping. Mmm...

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
My first pie crust off this site, and it was a definite success. You can't go very wrong with this recipe. I used it with Sour Cream Apple Pie I, and I received rave reviews.

Pakistani Spicy Chickpeas

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2004
I just made it, yum. Make sure you heat the oil on low, as specified, because the cumin could burn when you least expect...

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2004
This is my standby bread...I always make it with butter instead of shortening, and it turns out lovely. Last time I added a couple tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce and the bread was even moister, yum.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2004
Awesome, very simple to make. I halved the recipe, substituted 1 c whole wheat flour, used 1/4 c applesauce and 1/4 c canola oil, and added some cinnamon, nutmeg, and extra blueberries. Delicious, especially with milk or coffee.

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
Great recipe! I always throw in chopped walnuts, raisins, crushed pineapple, applesauce, chocolate chips and an extra egg. They turn out PERFECT--chewy and filling.
