Albondigas Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
This is the BEST recipe for albondigas that I have found. Using medium salsa, I think, gives it just the right kick. It makes a huge pot though, so be ready for leftovers! I also used half chicken broth, and half beef broth with excellent results, as well as adding fresh chopped cilantro, and a little extra (cooked) rice. FANTASTIC!!!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
Fantastic. Absolutely the best fudge I have ever made, and possibly the best I have ever tried. Perfect for holiday gift baskets!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
This recipe reminds me of childhood. I can't remember how many times I came home from school on a rainy Oregon day to warm loaves of homemade bread. I've given yeast bread a few half-hearted attempts over the years, but haven't had much success. My bread turns out heavy and flat with a tough bottom crust. I had pretty much given up hope when I decided to try this recipe. I did misread the recipe, using 1 1/2 tsp (One yeast packet) but I didn't even realize it until the bread was done, and it had baked up light, fluffy and fabulous anyway. I thought it a bit odd that others said they would use a loaf of bread for a gift, but after making this I can't wait to do the same. Thank you, Peg, for making me a bread maker, and for the lovely reminders of more carefree days!

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
These were truly excellent. Made exactly as the recipe indicates, and I rolled and cut them by hand. Let them dry overnight and added them to homemade chicken noodle soup from scratch. I even think they're as good as my mother's and her noodles are famous in our family!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
Wonderful recipe, everyone at our party was so impressed! Simple and elegant, would be pretty drizzled with a little white chocolate.

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
We went off bread (for about ten minutes-haha) and I made these tasty patties without the bun, and they are truly wonderful. Great flavor, much better than any mix, and easy as pie to prepare. Super recipe!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
This is our family's designated "special occasion" cake. I love holidays just for this cake! Make exactly as the recipe states, no additions, leave nothing out. I have to give it all away or I'll eat the whole thing myself!

Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
These are great, but the raw garlic is a bit much. I would suggest oven roasting the garlic, then adding it to the dipping sauce. Other than that, two thumbs up!

Seasoned Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
Fabulous flavor! Just the right amount of spice. I didn't have oyster sauce, and wasn't in the mood to make a trip for it, so I just omitted it, and it was still excellent. I'm sure it would be even more excellent with all the ingredients. Served with lemon herb rice and green beans--dinner for two for under 5 bucks. Can't beat that!

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
Hubby practically licks his plate every time I make this! I usually use skinless chicken thighs because they're more moist. Makes a great dish with saffron rice, but be careful, and don't use white linens because it stains! The flavor is excellent, this will be a recipe we make for years!

Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
This is my favorite birthday cake. I omitted the nuts as I didn't have any, but they were missed, so be sure to make this one as directed. A+++

Amusement Park Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
Oh gosh this is good! Used my kitchenaid for ease, and baked in a deep dish pie plate for about 45 minutes. I also added half a can of drained corn, it adds great texture. Made 8 huge portions. My new cornbread recipe, and so much cheaper (and better for you) than the mixes!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2003
These look like bakery muffins, they're beautiful! I halved the recipe to make only a dozen, and I think I used more than a cup of sour cream, just kind of eyeballed it. I also had a whole pint of blueberries, so I dumped the whole thing in there, and it make a dozen large muffins that were as pretty as they were tasty. I will use this recipe often!

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2003
I used an extra two eggs, and about 1/3 cup of milk to the mixture to make it fluffier. Forgot the oregano-oops....but my sausage was made with sage, so hopefully that'll make up for it. It did puff up with the extra eggs and the milk, probably could have used even more milk but I didn't want to risk a soggy crust. Fantastic! Thanks!

Laundry Soap

Fels Naptha can be found at almost any grocery store. Check both the laundry aisle and in the baby section. It's also available on Amazon for around $4.00. Good luck!

Sweet Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2003
By far the best banana bread I have ever made! I have long been looking for the perfect banana bread recipe, and others have been good, but nothing like this. Moist, dense, and full of rich banana flavor. Can't wait to share with family and friends!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
I too, had difficulty finding frozen ladyfingers, and after trekking to three different grocery stores, I gave up and followed the suggestion of another reviewer and made my own using a recipe here on allrecipes. It was so easy! And it had to be ten times cheaper. The end result was spectacular, and so pretty! I got rave reviews from everyone at our party, and no one could believe I actually made it. I would highly recommend this recipe if you are looking for an elegant and deceptively simple dessert. A+

No-Bake Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
Really good. They made a large jelly roll pan, but certainly not several dozen. My fiance is a golfer, so I've been looking for a good energy bar recipe that doesn't turn to mush in the arizona summer sun. I made a few adjustments to these; added about 1/3 cup of honey, substituted craisins for the raisins, added peanuts and sunflower seeds (for protein) and omitted the chocolate chips completely. The result is a very tasty, chewy, high protein golfer's snack that holds up very well. Still a little chewier than I would like, but the flavor is fabulous. And SO easy! Thanks for sharing!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
This recipe is really good, but I always decrease the condensed milk by half...the full amount hurts my teeth it's so sweet! We find that it is MUCH better to make it into banana cream pie by using the vanilla wafer crust here on allrecipes instead of just layering the wafers which get really soggy. I would also recommend putting the whole pudding mixture (minus the bananas) in the blender and pureeing it after you've mixed it in the mixer. It makes extra dishes, but gives the pudding a light, mousse-like texture.

Paydirt Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it really was pretty good. However, it did not quite have the "wow factor" that I was expecting. There isn't anything that stands out in this recipe to warrant using the ingredients plus the extra expense of the mix. A good cookie, but it doesn't knock your socks off at all.
