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!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
This is excellent. I cut the recipe in half, and let it simmer for a couple of hours. I used all the ingredients, but did use a whole can of kidney beans because I didn't know what I would do with the leftovers. There isn't much broth, it's hugely thick, but the flavor is excellent and I highly recommend it for a cold day. (Also a bonus, no meat and basic ingredients make it very convenient, and very thrifty to make. I think I spent less than 5 bucks for the whole pot)

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
This is great, but does need some modifications. Fresh jalapeno instead of canned chiles. More lime for an authentic flavor, a bit of salt, and a splash of vinegar. Also better with extra cilantro. Best if allowed to sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 or 5 hours, preferably overnight.

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
This is fantastic. I don't care for bacon, but I did use bacon grease to brown the lamb, and omitted the bacon itself. I also had to simmer quite a bit longer than the recipe called for (about 3 1/2 hours) to soften the potato and carrot, and I did add quite a bit more beef broth to the stew, as well as using broth to deglaze the pan. I didn't add water at all. The end result was delicious, the lamb tender, and the flavors very savory. A great comfort dish. I won't make this often (holy cow, check out the fat!!!) but it will be a treat.

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+++

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!

Saucy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
I'm giving this recipe a 5 star rating because it makes an absolutely beautiful presentation, it's easy, and the breading rocks. The sauce I wasn't overly impressed with, however. After all the raves and standing ovations other reviewers wrote about, I was a tad disappointed. The flavor is okay, but not overly savory, and it's so rich we could hardly finish our servings. I will absolutely use the breading again, but the sauce I won't make again. I'm glad I tried the recipe though, thanks for sharing!

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.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
Great flavor, makes an enormous amount of fudge. My only negative is that this fudge is very soft, and must be kept in the fridge.

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!

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!

Apple Shortbread Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
I fixed this for hubby's potluck to go with the Irish chicken & dumplings recipe here on allrecipes, and I have to say, I had a hard time letting it go out the door! The shortbread is fantastic, and the golden delicious apples are a nice change from my usual granny smiths. Wonderful flavor and aroma, all though the apples were really juicy, and the pie was a bit watery. Maybe tossing the apples with a bit of flour along with the brown sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg combo would help? Highly recommend for a very simple apple pie, without the hassle of rolling out dough!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
I made this for an Irish potluck at hubby's work (didn't even know chicken and dumplings is irish) and doubled the batch, all except the dumplings, as I read others thought it had too much dumpling mix. I also used a bit less potato, and diced them into bite size pieces, as with the onion, to make it easier to eat. The flavor is great, very homey. Definitely a mellow dish, and not heavy on the spices, but a nice meal for a cold rainy night....I'll have to try it during the winter! Thanks!

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!

Nana's Favorite Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
We loved it! I've made this twice now, both times using only peaches and increasing the cornstarch to 3 tbsp as BN suggested. The second time I made sure to invite enough people over to share it, because it's definitely best served warm out of the oven. Thanks BN, you've made me a cobbler convert!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
I'm always looking for dinners that don't require the use of the oven--not very energy efficient in the Arizona summer. The roast itself was a little dry, I think maybe because it's not seared first, or possibly because I used a roast half the size of the one recommended (the two of us can't eat six lbs of red meat), but the gravy is sensational. I think next time I'll sear the meat first to lock in the juices, and add the wine/broth mixture as previously suggested, and add some fresh sliced mushrooms. I also had to thicken up the gravy with cornstarch, but for as simple as this is, it is truly a keeper. So nice to run errands all day and come home to dinner all ready!

Easy Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2003
I made this for a work function (not mine, the hubby's...that work stuff is for the birds :-) And it looked sensational. I used granny smith apples, and they were fairly large, so by the time I sliced up 4 it looked like more than enough, so 4 is what I used. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly minus the pudding mix, as the cake mix was "double pudding" and I heeded the warnings about soggy cake. I did manage to sneak a taste where it wouldn't be noticed, and it was excellent, tangy, soft, and moist. The perfect companion for a good cup of coffee!

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!
