Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
This was great! My two year old even ate it! I added a can of black beans for some extra nutrients. Added just 1/3 c rice and used my whole carton of broth (4 cups). I added a can of green chiles along with my can of corn because I didn't have the corn w/ peppers. I was also missing the cilantro :( It was still delicious but I'm sure it would've been even better with some extra cilantro!

Portuguese Sweet Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
This was delicious! I followed the submitter's suggestion for thicker pudding so I used 3 eggs and 1 1/4 c rice. I was a little nervous that it still wasn't going to be thick or cook enough but the last 10-15 minutes it thickens quite a bit. Plus the egg thickens it as well. I added vanilla and sprinkled cinnamon on top when served. Mmm mmmm.

Fresh Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
This was great! The combination of colors makes for a beautiful presentation plus it works with a variety of fruits. I've added peaches to it and left out the blueberries because that's what I had on hand the second time I made it and it was still delicious. To prevent the fruit from going brown, I mixed about a 1/2 c lime juice into the fruit. That keeps the color and adds a little tart contrast. Mmm mmmm!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
The muffins are DELICIOUS! Very moist and the crumble topping makes them even more yummy. Wouldn't change a thing! I am curious if anyone has ever made this into a coffecake/buckle before?

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
I loved these pancakes! I made these only because I ran out of pancake mix and now I don't think I'll buy pancake mix again. This is much cheaper than purchasing pancake mix and it tastes better too! I wouldn't do anything different! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out PERFECT! I even froze some for later.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
These had great flavor and great texture! Definitely don't take these out of the oven before they have a golden brown crust around the edge. I took my first batch out before that point and they were doughy. I had to throw out my first batch. I also recommend beating the egg before mixing with dry ingredients just to ensure it blends well.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I made this for a freezer meal group and used an apple butter recipe from this site. It had great flavor. Just watch the temperature of the pork loin Mine got really dry after cooking very quickly in the slow cooker.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This recipe tasted great! I followed the advice of others and cut sugar to 2.5 cups, reduced almond extract to 1/2 tsp., and used 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Used strictly cake flour and baked in a Bundt pan. Many reviews suggested beating this cake to death. If you want a dense pound cake, don't over beat it! My cake was more spongy because I beat it so much, similar to angel food cake/pound cake cross.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Mmmm I loved it! It gave a little bit of a steak flavor while still having a healthier piece of meat. I took it out at 145F and it was THE BEST pork loin I've made. SUPER tender! It was even good as a cold leftover the next day (my power went out). I had it marinate for 24 hrs. Served with roasted asparagus and mashed potatoes. Mmm mmm mmmmmmm.

German Baby

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
This was delicious!! I was craving German pancakes since I ate them at a restaurant and these were great! I did change two things. I added a pinch of salt and blended everything in a blender. I figured it was less dishes to clean and it worked well. My pancakes were the perfect texture and flavor! Will definitely make again!

Sylvia's Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Delicious! Guests said it's better than The Outback's ribs!! I halved the recipe with same amount of ribs and still had plenty leftover. Made for a freezer meal group. I did initial boil for 1 hr and then cut up spareribs, placed in Ziploc, poured in sauce and froze. Freezing didn't change the flavor at all and letting them thaw gave them some time to marinate in it.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
I've made them this way for years. My husband grew up hating brussel sprouts until I made them this way for him. I also add garlic sometimes. This is also how I convinced my husband to eat asparagus. Works for those too :)

Red Sauce Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I LOVE these enchiladas. I've shared this recipe with a few friends who don't use Allrecipes.com and they say these are delicious as well. Pretty simple and straight forward directions. Definitely a keeper. To cut down on time you can boil the chicken breasts first.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
DON'T leave out the whipping cream! The first time I made it I made three changes: fresh pumpkin, 1/2 c brown w/ 1/4 c white sugar, and added a simple topping (1/2 c pecans, 1/3 c brown sugar, 1-2 T butter). It was the most delicious cheesecake I've ever tasted. The second time we forgot to add the whipping cream. 2T doesn't seem like much but the cheesecake was 1/2 as tall. Instead of firming up at 3 in tall, it was 1-1/2 inches. So USE THE WHIPPING CREAM!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This was delicious. I added 4 tsp of dried basil leaves and then pureed the soup when it was done to give it a creamy consistency. I think it would be just as good with milk and served with a crunchy bread. Mmm.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Very good! I used a multi-grain penne and it was yummy. Next time I might add chicken or broccoli in place of spinach would also be good. I will also add some more basil. I cooked a bag of fresh spinach in place of the frozen and doubled the mushrooms. I love this recipe because can make it really healthy without sacrificing flavor!

Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
DELICIOUS!!!!! I used 1 jar of home canned apples and made it into "apple pie filling" by following the recipe called Apple Pie Filling (skipped cooking the apples as mine were already cooked). This made enough filling for TWO cheesecakes. I also made my own graham cracker crust and added chopped pecans to the crust. It was an easy recipe to follow. If followed exactly, it will not fail! The pecans in the crust AND mixed into the caramel topping were the two things I added that made this even more outstanding than as written! Seriously, use pecans!! The best part is this cheesecake doesn't have to set overnight! It was ready to eat 2 hours after coming out of the oven. 1 hr to cool to room temperature, add topping, cool in fridge 1 more hour, DONE.

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
The parmesan cheese adds the perfect touch! I, too, changed this to be healthier by using only 2 T olive oil to saute everything. While cooking this seemed like it wa going to be REALLY bland but after adding the parmesan cheese it all blended together perfectly!

Sweet-and-Sour Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I had leftover pork loin I wanted to use up and this was PERFECT for that. I skipped the first step of cooking the pork and I divided the sauce mix in half (since I skipped the first step). I added 1/4 c pineapple juice and there was plenty of sauce and plenty of flavor. I started out by sauteing the pepper and onions until they had a soft crunch. Then I added the cubed pork, ginger, garlic, and sauce. I didn't have any carrots but this was still DELICIOUS!
