Apple Crisp I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
I just pulled this from the oven, and practically ran to the computer to give it a 5 star rating. The topping on this apple crisp is heavenly. I was a little concerned with how dry it all looked before going into the oven, but never should have worried! I used granny smith apples, and tossed with a little sugar and cinnamon, and I also added some extra cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping, as well as a little extra walnuts. This is fabulous! The whole house smells heavenly. My family is always looking for great recipes to share, and I'll be emailing this one tomorrow! Thanks!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

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!

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!

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!

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+++

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
