Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2004
I've made this recipe a few times allready. For a long time I have been searching for a pot roast recipe with a brown gravy that was "good". I tried and read through many pot roast recipes and none met what I was looking for. They were either flavorless/boring/just blah. FINALLY I have found what I've been looking for many years. Thank you Becky, you've made my day. It is a FANTASTIC recipe and a definate keeper!!

Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
This is a GREAT recipe. The natural flavor of the sugar snaps are utmost. One thing to remember, which I didn't do my first time making this recipe, is to remove and discard the stem end and the string from each pod. If you don't do this you will be chewing on the stem and string and will have to spit it out which is not too appealing, other than that this is a very, very good vegetable dish. Way to go CC!!

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
Sorry to say, I didn't find this recipe to be that great. I've had ratatouille before that is pretty good, but this recipe didn't quite make the 5 star. Sorry.

Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and found it to be DEElish! However, I added some coconut and butter extracts which realy did make it great. Put it this way, there was no leftover to take home.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
These were real yummy. A good crispy onion ring. Left overs are excellent re-heated due to the crisp factor. I did add some garlic powder to the flour mixture and soaked the onions rings in water (this process of soaking takes the strong oniony flavor out of onions if that's what you prefer. The water coating also helped the flour mixture to adhere better). The only problem I had with this recipe was that after you coat the onion rings with flour mixture, it doesn't realy specify how much you flour mixture you are left with. I had to make more flour mixture in order to have enough when adding egg mixture (maybe this was the case due to my decision to soak in water. Overall these were realy GREAT and I'll def. make it again. Thanks Jeanharmon:)

Barley Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
I didn't think this dish was anything to write home about. Sorry. I like barley, but though it was edible I wound up throwing out about 3/4 of this dish because no one in my family was interested in eating it again. That's too bad considering the pricey pine nuts.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
These were only O.K. Wouldn't make again not because they were horrible but because I've had better.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
This wasn't bad but didn't find that it was Great!! Sorry to say that I've had better. I made this into burittos and found that the pork flavor alone was nothing to write home about (needed some umph). What did make my burittos better was the addition of sour cream, guacamole, refried beans, etc. Without these additions it would be bland. Only with more spice/modification would I make this Roast again.

Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I made this recipe and added more of the cheese and also added little hot pepper. It came out good, but I think next time I'll make it exactly as called for. I think the extra spice I added took away the mushroom taste.

Seven-Up™ Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
I would have given this 5 stars if it wasn't for the additions which I added and find necessary. I added about 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and instead of 2 tsp of lemon extract, I added 3 tsp. I have been making this cake forever and have recently lost the recipe. So when I made my search here on AllRecipes I was delighted to find a recipe so close to the one which I had been making. One thing to keep in mind for this recipe is watch your cooking time, especially don't let it overbake more than necessary. Once it is just done, this cake is so delightful that you won't want to make any other coffee cake. Many people who've had this cake are surprised that it is made with 7-up beverage. To be honest I use mostly ginger-ale because that's what I have on hand (therefore, reason for the extra lemon extract). Anyway, you must try, try this recipe.

Badgers Cheddar and Ranch Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I really liked this recipe. It is much better than some other cheese fondue recipes I've tried. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is that I found it to be a little too pungeant. Others who try this recipe might disagree. The second time I made it I tried using mild cheddar as opposed to sharp, but it still had a pungeant flavor. I love the addition of the tomatoes. Definately a keeper.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This was a very good recipe and would def. make it again. The reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 star is that it lacked I believe sauted onions at the beginning. I think that would add "omph" to this recipe. I'll try and let ya know.

Coconut (Haupia) and Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I really loved this recipe. It has a wonderfully pleasantly mild taste. The only thing I did wrong was to overcook my pie crust (reason for the 4 stars otherwise, I'd give it a 5 star. No fault of the submitter). I made this around Thanksgiving and I was working on a million things at a time and forgot to check the pie crust. Next time I may try this recipe with a graham cracker crust. I definitely will make again. Thank you!!

Kim's Prime Rib

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I used the concept of the soy, worcestershire, etc. in this recipe and added it to my version of Beef Roast. I've been making roast by making slits into the meat and squeezing in garlic cloves sliced in half and coating with Lipton Onion Soup Mix. This time I followed Kim's recipe and coated with the Lipton Onion Soup Mix (I cut down on the soy because Lipton Onion Soup Mix already has salt. The flavor was outstanding. Highly recommend this recipe. Thx.

Roast Beef and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This recipe was great. I don't consider this a roast beef (roast beef is oven roasted and produces a completely different product), but rather a brown gravy pot roast. I added some hot sauce (equivalent to Franks) which gave it a zip. When I make it again I will make sure to add hot sauce again. It didn't make it hot but gave it another dimension that went pleasantly well to the overall taste without changing the brown gravy concept and taste. A keeper

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This is a very nice apple crisp. A classic. Have made it 2X in the past couple of weeks. The first time I followed it to a T, the second time a added a bit of lemon juice. Next time, I will add the lemon juice but less than what I originally added. The lemon juice is a "sometimey" addition, as it depends on the type of apples used. If using sour type of apples, such as granny-smith, lemon juice won't be necessary, otherwise I like "just a hint" of zip. Loved it and so did everyone else in my house.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
This was very tasty!! I have been looking for a bean salad/salsa type of dish for a while that is like one they sell at a local grocer. Even though this recipe wasn't as good than the one at the grocer, it was definately a keeper. I did add Franks hot sauce to add some zip, but found that it added more acid than it needed. It does have alot of acid in-of-itself, so next time I will tweek a bit.

Brown Sugar and Port Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I wish I could have given this sauce 5 stars but felt that it came under that. I think that the sauce had too much port wine taste therefore adding to it's acidity and contributed to a lack of smooth taste. I've made cranberry sauce in the past which contained port wine that was marvelous, but unfortunately I can't find the recipe. I'll keep looking though.
