Man Pleasin' Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
I signed up to be a member of allrecipes.com just so I could review & rate THIS recipe. It was fabulous; just made the following alterations: used linguica ( portugese sausage) instead of smoked sausage, added 3/4 lb of shrimp at the last 10 min, omitted carrots, doubled celery, added Tony's Cajun seasoning to chicken when browning, and the added another Tbsp to broth when I put the rice in. I also added 4 cloves of garlic when sautéing the veggies. I did not add tomatoes, as my husband is allergic, so that's what attracted me to this recipe. The tomatoes were not missed! This made a TON of food, but it's jambalaya-it's supposed to! Leftovers were AWESOME!

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Very yummy, but made a few alterations: added about 4 tbsp of truvia to add some sweetness. Also added an extra tsp of powdered Ginger, as we really like a strong Ginger flavor. Used lite organic coconut milk. Next time I will add more chicken and mushroom as well. Overall a great base recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
My dog loves them! Used 1/4 more PB and oatmeal instead of wheat germ. Flattened with fork & fingers instead of rolling/cutting. Such an easy and super fast treat! I feel so much better knowing exactly what I'm feeding my pooch. Break them apart and stuff in his Kong with extra PB or cream cheese and he's busy for quite a while! Thanks for the recipe!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Holy YUM! Took another reviewer's advice and used 2.5 cups white sugar and .5 cup brown sugar. Also, my family loves the peanut butter/chocolate combo, so I used Reese's peanut butter chips instead of chocolate ones. I'm sure glad I did as the brownies are very rich and chocolatey. Will definitely make these again and again!

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Very bland. Couldn't taste the jalapeño at all, as some other reviewers said. Just tasted like warm peanut butter. I'll stick with stuffing them with cream cheese and wrapping them in bacon.

Blueberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
These were very good, but next time I won't use as much of the crumble mixture in top-it was too much. I used 3 cups frozen blueberries and 1 cup fresh raspberries. My whole family loved them!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
These are pretty good! I tried to make them a bit "healthier" as some others did. My adjustments: 1/2 cup butter with 1/2 cup applesauce, 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, used all brown sugar, only 1/2 tsp of salt, no nuts, 1 cup 60% cocoa chips and 1 cup white choc chips, and refrigerated the dough for 3 hours before baking. Lots of adjustments, but they are yummy! My 8 year old loves them!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
This was RIDICULOUSLY awesome and easy! Used a little over 2 cups of chicken broth and about 1 cup of water to boil 5 chicken breasts. Added some frozen peas and carrots and 3 bay leaves. Used 1 can cream of chicken and 1 can cream of celery. Used 1 can (~12 oz) of Grands reduced fat buttermilk biscuits. My family devoured it! Can't wait to make it again.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
YOU MUST TRY THIS. I make it all the time, but it is especially great for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. People always ask for the recipe and I know it by heart, so it's easy to pass on the joy! If you ARE making it for a holiday meal, double the recipe. Trust me, you will not have leftovers.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
These are my husbands FAVORITE cookies. I'm not much of an oatmeal raisin lover, but I have to admit, these are GOOD! My modifications: used 4 eggs, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp of salt, unsalted butter, and I always bake on parchment paper. Perfect every time!

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Easy and delicious. All I had was bone-in chuck roast, so next time will increase the cooking time by a couple of hours so it falls apart more.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This was FREAKING AMAZING. Do yourself a favor and make this--exactly as written. Don't change anything. You won't be disappointed. I used a rump roast and served on toasted hoagie buns! We ate this 3 days in a row until it was gone, and STILL wanted more! I used about a quarter of the juice in the jar and it was perfectly spiced for us.

Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Been making these for years; they're delicious! I also recommend using the chive-flavored cream cheese - makes them extra special!

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
My family liked these "OK,", but we found them to not have as much flavor as we hoped. We'll stick with our BBQ Saurkraut Crockpot meatballs.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
These were great! I accidentally added too many blueberries, so they were a bit soft and heavy, but that was my fault. My 9-year-old LOVES them and I feel great about letting her eat them!

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Restaurant quality food right here! My tweaks: used chicken & shrimp instead of pork. Didn't have already-cooked chicken, so I marinated the chicken in 2 TBSP soy sauce, 2 TBS Fish Sauce and a pinch of brown sugar about an hour ahead of time. Didn't have oyster sauce, so used the chicken marinade instead, and added about a TBSP more soy to the dish at the end. Used cabbage instead of Bok Choy, as that is what I had on hand. Left out the red pepper to see if my kid would eat it, and she LOVED it (9 years old). Hubs and I added red pepper to our own bowls. Superb!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
This was great! I doubled the recipe, made in the crock pot, used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and took a little help from the store and used the meat from a ready-made rotisserie chicken. I think the rotisserie chicken added a ton of flavor! Superb!
