I must add my review to the long list. This is one of my favorites.

Chicken Scampi I

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
I sort of combined the 3 chicken scampi recipes that are presently on this website trying to find the closest representation to what is on that "well-known Italian restaurant chain" menu. (Chicken scampi is the only item on their menu that I like.) So even though there is a lot of butter (and that is why it is good!), I used the sauce on Jill's, decreasing the Worcestershire sauce to more of a hint than 3 T; I added the veggies (peppers, sauteed onion, mushrooms) and WAY more parmesan; and served it over angelhair pasta like the restaurant does. It turned out really good. My husband loved it and so did I. I'll make it again. Thank you to all 3 contributers! :-)

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 3, 2003
I made this last night and my husband and I both thought it was just ok. I usually resist using recipes that call for ready-made ingredients such as dry dressing mix and canned soup because those products usually have such high salt content. But with the "Hall of Fame" section of allrecipes.com giving it such high reviews, I was curious about the combination of ingredients that make up this sauce. Not too salty as some reviewers said because allrecipes.com staff altered the quantity of the dry dressing mix originally called for. We had enough sauce, but doubling it would allow one to be able to be more generous with it per serving. I only used 4 chicken breasts, rather than 6. I won't make it again due to the sodium content in the pre-packaged ingredients and it certainly is not Hall of Fame worthy.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: May 3, 2003
I made these this morning. They taste just like snickerdoodles are supposed to taste! Very much like a recipe I already had, but I made it Mrs. Sigg's way (of course there is always an "except", so...!) :-) ...except I omitted the shortening and used all butter. Thanks, Mrs. Sigg! (May 3, 2003)

Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: May 15, 2003
My husband and I both really liked this. It makes quite a bit but I think it was all gone within a couple of days. I added 3/4 c parsley, as one of my fave trusted reviewers (Maggie) recommended, and I also put in about 1/2 c of crumbled feta, and some whole black olives. It was really good. Thank you, Katherine!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 19, 2003
This is SO good! I just made it and am waiting for my husband to get home; if he doesn't hurry, it will be too late. :-) We like hot spicey foods, but we don't like it so overpowering that the heat takes over the flavor. SO! I used only 2 tablespoons of the jalapenos and chopped them up very finely so they would be well-distributed throughout the dish. I also used 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. This is perfect seasoning for us. I also only put in one can of chicken broth on the advice of other reviewers, and I added a 4th can of beans to thicken it up a bit. Thank you, Cathy! It is great!

Peasant Bread

Reviewed: May 19, 2003
This was good! I do like the crustiness of it a lot. It's really good sliced thick and toasted with butter slathered on it while warm. We're having it tonight with ChaCha's White Chicken Chili, from this website. Thanks so much, Becki! I LOVE this website! :-)(May 19, 2003)

Fatoosh

Reviewed: May 20, 2003
Very nice salad; refreshing with the cucumber, mint, and lemon juice. No revisions made; it's good just as it is. I've had sumac powder on various dishes at my favorite Mediterranean restaurant, so it was fun to hunt it down and use it on my own. Thank you so much, Winna! (May 20, 2003)

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2003
These are very good...nice, thin, golden crepes. I filled them with sliced bananas, topped them with sliced strawberries and touch of sour cream, and drizzled them with the orange sauce recipe from this website. My husband had them with maple syrup. We both liked them. The only thing I recommend, differently, is to first mix together the milk & water & eggs, THEN add the flour because just mixing the flour & eggs alone and adding liquids after, makes a globby ball that is hard to break down again! Thanks for sharing this, Jen.

Orange Sauce for Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2003
I made this to go with the Basic Crepes recipe from this website and drizzled it over banana slice-filled crepes, and then topped with sliced strawberries. It was very good. I was thinking it might be useable with chicken, so thanks to the other reviewers for your ideas and thanks, Ann, for sharing your recipe.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2003
I'm not a HUGE fan of sweets but I'll eat them if they are worth the calories. These are absolutely worth the calories and taste just like the mall Cinnabons. Fabulous! Thanks, Marsha! Jul 12, 2003

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2003
I'm always intrigued when I see tons of reviews and the vast majority give a high rating. So I tried the lasagne last night and it is very good, but I like the veggie one my brother made up much better! Traditional lasagne recipes that I've been familiar with use sausage, so I did use 1/2 pound of sausage with 1 pound of hamburger; also used fresh oregano since I could go out on my deck and snip some; added a touch of tomato sauce to the diced tomatoes and tomato paste; and added a bit more parmesan just because I like it. Thanks, Rosemary!

Santa Fe Rice Salad

I must be missing something. I made this without any revisions, but thought it was just okay. Thanks, Terri.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
I really appreciate the sauce recipes that don't include canned soup as an ingredient (too much salt and fat). BUT I also usually avoid using fat-free ingredients because of the lack of flavor and/or texture they can cause, but I went with the fat-free sour cream (& chicken broth), based on other reviewers' input, and it worked well. This wine sauce is good and the chicken was very tender! My husband and I both liked it. Thank you, Monica!

Margaritas on the Rocks

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
This was my first try at making margaritas; my husband is the pro. I made them frozen, rather than on the rocks, and this passed his taste test, although they hit hard; stronger than what we are used to! Thank you, Carol.

Amusement Park Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2003
This cornbread, with the cajun chicken pasta, were how I was introduced to this website by a coworker. I've always served them together ever since. I haven't made it this summer so it's been awhile, but it seems to me I have to bake it longer than the recipe says. Thank you for sharing this, Trish!

Peach Berry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
I, too, added the blueberries at the end of the cooking-fruit-process so they would be more likely to stay whole and they did. Nothing at all wrong with this recipe, but not GREAT. I like great. :-) I did like the way the batter formed a sort of crunchy crust on top as it baked due to the coarse sugar sprinkling. Thanks for sharing!

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2003
Yes, it's very good. We wanted something light for dinner tonight, but if we'd been hungrier, a single recipe wouldn't have been enough for the two of us. I'd double it next time. I love cilantro, so add more as well as more cheese too; I was cautious with the jalapeno but next time, would add a whole one rather than just half of one. I also baked it in the toaster oven for the final step rather than a skillet. Thanks for sharing this one, Tony.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2003
These are very good shortbread cookies. I think, next time, I will try adding maybe 1/4 tsp of salt, as the shortbread I've had has had the tiniest hint of salt and it goes well with the sugar. Thank you, Sally!

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2003
These enchiladas are pretty good as everyone has stated. I did have a preconceived notion that the reviewers who complained about the time it took to make these enchiladas might be just a little whiney! I enjoy a long leisurely Sunday cooking project, but this WAS long! :-) By chance, I began cooking this dish around 11am on Sunday, for which I am grateful, because it was ready by 5pm. It took about 3 hours to reduce the sauce; and I got it down to only about 4 c by then. 1.) I used no-sodiumno-MSG chicken broth and no-sodium cream of chicken soup and it seemed to taste just right. 2.) Rather than using a 9x13 pan, I used two 9x9 baking dishes and made one pan with red enchilada sauce and one with green enchilada sauce. Both were equally good. 3.) I used corn tortillas and flour tortillas in each pan also and both were good and I'm not a big corn tortilla fan. 4.) Oh and I seasoned the chicken in Montreal Chicken Seasoning (made by McCormick's; bought at Costco). I wouldn't make them again; took WAY too long!
