Acorn Squash with Apple

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
I have used a similar recipe for a long time that uses more butter. I put a little nutmeg and cardamon in mine as well. I am giving this 5 stars because it is a delicious way to make squash, and also for the tip on how to peel those buggers-they're not easy!! Thanks for the tip!!!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
Wow! They are the best! I didn't use quite a cup of peanut butter because it just looked like too much, but they were fantastic! The dough was very fluffy (I used my Kitchenaid mixer), but workable. I rolled them in sugar and made the traditional criscross design. Make a double batch if you're a cookie lover!

No Roll Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2005
Super easy! I can't roll pie crust either, and this is tasty. I added nutmeg as suggested, and placed the crust in an 8x8 spuare pan, topped it with fresh apple pie filling and a little crumb crust to make apple pie squares. Yummy-and you don't have to eat a big piece-thanks!!

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
Very easy to make! I use margarine for the shortening. They remind me of Lofthouse cookies-only a little smaller. I make a glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and a little vanilla (and some fun food coloring) to glaze these. You can add sprinkles at this point also. Kids LOVE them. I've been bringing them in for school b-day parties (and the teachers like them too!).

Easy Crab Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
Fast and easy. All four of us liked it. I did make a few modifications: I added a little wine after sauteing the garlic and onions to soften them a bit, threw in a chicken bouillon cube with the milk, and added some chopped chives in top of each serving. These all probably helped to boost the flavor a bit. I like the fact that you get the creaminess, but don't have to add the fat by using milk instead of cream. I will make this again, and would serve it to guests.

Portuguese Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2005
I didn't follow the recipe to the letter, for instance, I added some diced carrots, onion, celery, and garlic; and used sun-dried tomato chicken sausage, but my family really liked it. My five year old son said it was "really good soup". I blended up a few of the vegetables and about half of the beans. Yummy soup-thanks for the recipe-we need to eat more kale!

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
Super easy to make, and keeps well too. Head and shoulders above the commercial stuff. People always rave about this dip, and it's perfect for the fresh autumn apples. I add a little vanilla as was recommended by a previous reviewer.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2004
I've used a different Blueberry muffin recipe for at over 20 years. They always were dry by the second day. These were wonderfully moist and dense. I used light sour cream, maybe 50% more berries, and a little cinnamon/sugar sprinkled on top before baking. I also halved the recipe. Now I wished I hadn't as I will have to make more! Everyone loved them-thanks! UPDATE 2012: I use melted butter rather than oil - the flavor is much better. A streusel type topping is very good on these, but you don't need it. People still tell me how good these are, and they ARE good!

Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
Terrific recipe!! It's simple to make, my kids helped make the dough balls and tamp them down. They turned out delicious (we made raspberry tarts from raspberry pie III from this site). We ate 12 between 3 of us within the first hour. Thank you for an easy and yummy recipe.

Salmon With Green Fettuccine

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2004
I added the lemon pepper and some fresh garlic as suggested. I also added about 10 oz of frozen peas and carrots when sauteing the onion. We all really liked this, and my four-year old ate it plain on the side. Thanks!

Ham and Swiss Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2004
I have to admit I made a major change in the recipe. I had some leftover rice pilaf, so I added 4 C of that to substitute for the noodles. The pilaf had sauteed onions and garlic in it and was cooked in chicken broth. So I did not add extra onions. Also, I added the parmesan to the mixture (and added maybe a little more, too). Otherwise, I made the recipe as written. We all liked it and did not find it bland at all. I think I'll make it this way again. Thanks for the recipe. It's always good to find a new way to cook with ham.

Mediterranean Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
Very good flavor and easy to prepare. I took a few suggestions from previous reviewers-I marinated the chicken (boneless, skinless breasts) about 2 hrs prior to cooking. I kept the chicken covered the whole time. It did not dry out at all. My husband and kids (4 and 7) really ate it up. Thanks!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
I have made (no exaggerating) dozens of batches-it makes a great gift! I use a 9.5 oz can of Planters lightly salted cashews. Here's what I have found to be helpful: I reduced the baking soda to 1/2-3/4t. baking soda (I could taste the soda-yuck), and I add the nuts after the mixture starts to turn slightly brown (about 4 min. in my microwave). The mixture stiffens up some, but will then soften when you cook it again-that way, the nuts don't burn at all. Keep adjusting the times for your microwave-it's worth it! Add Tip: to thin/spread out the brittle, try using forks to "pull out" the candy along w/ heating your cookie sheet.

Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
Really tasty and couldn't be easier! This is a great one to make ahead of time and pull out when needed. I agree that it's easy to adjust the amount of seasonings to fit your taste-you can even adjust the amount of feta. Thanks, Bronte! 2005-This recipe was featured in the USA Today weekend section. The REAL submitter is my sweet s-i-l, Susan Getter-You're famous now!

Fudgy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: May 13, 2003
Amazingly easy to make and tastes amazing too! I made this in my Rival "Little Dipper" crockpot. It fit just perfectly. I took it to a school board meeting and got outstanding reviews. We dipped fruit (I dried it with paper towels after washing), pound cake, and pretzels. It is addictive-people kept returning to the pot to try something new to dip. Thanks for a super-easy recipe!!

Asian Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2003
Thanks for submitting this-it's THE recipe that makes it to all the potlucks these days. I found that it is important to wait until just before serving to add the noodles so they remain crunchy. Either I had a very small head of Napa cabbage or I like veggies, because I needed to add a second head to get the balance of noodles/almonds to cabbage correct for my taste. I'm going to try oven-toasting my noodles, seeds, and almonds next time for a healthier approach. (Although the butter did make the noodles very yummy!)

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2003
This soup has a wonderful, mellow flavor! Prior to adding the barley, I pureed half the soup as my family doesn't care for vegetable "chunks". I also made a quadruple batch of this for a Soup Supper at church. It was a big hit. Thanks! More info 10/08: Can't tell you how many times I've made this soup and always, always get positive comments from young and old alike from simple and sophisicated palates. My advice: don't add any extra flavors such as basil. Resist the temptation! I also thought it would be good, and luckily just modified a small amount of the pot. The results made for a different soup entirely. The only thing that I've changed is to omit the water and substitute all chicken broth (low sodium is best) I do agree that drastically changing the recipe makes it hard to rate what is written for the original, however, I often find it helpful to read what others have tried, and sometimes substituted in a pinch. In my opinion, please keep sharing. That's part of why I come to allrecipes.

Wanda's Chicken Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
An absolutely yummy way to use that leftover turkey. We are "noodle lovers" so we added twice the noodles (and added more milk and a chicken bouillon cube). I also used all fresh veggies which made for more work, but the taste was great. I used buttered bread crumbs too. Even my 75 year-old mom who no longer cooks said she had to have this recipe. Thanks!!
