Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
for those of you adding baking soda, etc. - those recipes are also on allrecipes, so you're kind of rating the wrong recipe. For a THREE INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE this recipe is perfect. If you want more than 3 ingredients, go to another recipe for peanut butter cookies.

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I don't like quiche. That said, I actually liked this quiche. I made it for my 8 year old, who likes quiche (and what a good protein meal for him), and I sampled it because it smelled better than any quiche I had tried before. I was really surprised. I sauteed the onions in a combination of butter and olive oil; left out the salt. I gave it 5 stars because any quiche I like has to be good:)

Sweetened Condensed Milk

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
First: I don't buy the expensive SCM, so this isn't that big of a money saver (b/c instant milk ain't cheap). Second comment: It's a good bit thinner consistency than canned SCM, but it worked just as well in my Cafe Latte. Third: Great for saving calories b/c Splenda can be substituted for much (if not all)of the sugar. Finally: I may be an idiot, but 16 servings is just over 1 can. I didn't realize that until the end.

Southern Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
The eggs was kind of weird, to me, so I did not use; I also made 2 pans of actual cornbread and used no bread (also strange to this Southerner). I put my onion, celery, and a can of corn in the food processor and pulsed til teeny-tiny, so each nite of dressing would have veggies in it. Had to take 2 stars away for each weird ingredient (in my mind casserole has eggs).

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I substituted 1 can of Cheddar Cheese soup for 1 can of Cream of Potato; I shredded my ham in the food processor rather than dicing it; and I used colby jack in the casserole and monterey cheddar on top. The casserole came out well, and is good - however, I found it a little lacking in flavor. (My 14 year old son thought it was "plain".) I will make again, but I think next time I'll add some onion powder and possibly garlic powder to the mix.

Popovers

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I've been using this recipe for years (I got it out of Paula Deen's first cookbook). I did try the different baking method in Christy's recipe, but find my popovers turn out better if I follow P's recipe and start with a cold oven, baking at 450 for 30 minutes (I have a gas stove) then pulling them out.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Let me start off by saying that I made some substitutions: chopped, fresh spinach for zucchini; orange bell pepper for green; canned mushrooms for fresh (forgot to buy fresh). I also halved the recipe (except the cheddar, which I only cut by a third). I mixed cheeses and wet ingredients in food processor, as well as my fresh baked bread (forgot to 'age' it) to kind of expedite mixing time; I used a vidalia chop wizard to cut down on chop time... and I still had 45 minutes in the prep, so I think 45 min. prep is for someone REALLY fast or it's off a bit. And I baked it every minute of the recommended bake time, was a little skittish that the toothpick came out clean but there seemed to still be wet egg mixture, so I baked an extra 10 minutes for safety reasons as much as anything. All that said, this strata is really, really good. It's not jump up and down, have it every weekend great, but it is really good for an occasion(al) brunch. I also think it's too much trouble for an every weekend or every day breakfast/brunch. I would

Down Home Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
This is a really good recipe. The beans were very, very good. I did cut the brown sugar back to 1/2 cup because the beans I had (Bush's Homestyle) already had brown sugar in them. Also, the bacon I keep isn't 'regular' bacon, but Nueske's Applewood Smoked (the BEST bacon in the world!!!). I actually had guests taking baked beans home and then calling back to compliment again. That's gotta be pretty good.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I used the ingredients of a recipe for 8, but used a 2 1/4 pound roast instead. I doubled the spices, rubbed it, then let it marinate in the spices for 5 hours. I made 2 batches of the sauce, both with only half the sugar, but the first without the cornstarch. I would soak the herb-crusted roast every 1/2 hour it cooked. The thickened batch was set aside, and each sliced piece of meat was dipped before being placed on the plate. AWESOME!!!!!

Classic Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Made this for my mom, who enjoyed the taste. I did double the pure vanilla extract as a few others mentioned and I'm definitely glad I did, because the vanilla flavor was still mild. My only complaint - and I wouldn't have deducted a start but a couple of others mentioned this as well, so I don't think it was just me - was that this pudding was beyond thick when completely cooled. Mind you, except for the vanilla I followed this recipe EXACTLY. Not one single deviation in timing, measurements, heat settings, anything that could have caused the pudding to set up so thick. It was truly beyond thick, it was gelatinous. My stove is a very precise, professional grade, gas stove so it's not like my electric burners were wonky. Because I have no clue how this pudding turned out like this (my Mom assures me it's not supposed to be like that...and she's a Tapioca pudding fanatic)because I am certain I did everything exactly according to the recipe, that's why I only deducted one star because I'm wondering if the consistency has something to do with something unwritten (stir, don't whisk; humid days it should cook less; something). I will use this recipe as a guide and make it again, but I will increase the milk to 3 1/2 cups or 4 cups (like in the Meadowwood Tapioca recipe on this site) to see if that makes this a Tapioca pudding and not a Tapioca gelatin.

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
I used 1 stick (8 tbsp) frozen butter instead of 4 tbsp frozen lard and butter, and I increased salt to 1 teaspoon instead of the 3/4 tsp the recipe called for; the biscuits tasted really good. The only thing is that, next time, I will roll out to 1" thickness, otherwise these are really flat biscuits.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I'd never eaten molasses cookies before, let alone baked them, so this is a new 'flavor' for me - and as far as the flavor:These cookies are really good in a 'different' or 'holiday' way (I'm not able to eat more than 2 at a time, and I probably won't bake but once a year). As far as the smell while baking: Wonderful! My home definitely has that 'holiday baking smell' that no candle can replicate. CHANGES I MADE: I was leary of the 'greasy cookie conundrum' that some other reviewers talked about, so I used 1 cup margarine, 1/4 cup butter flavor shortening, and 1/4 cup butter. My cookies turned out perfectly, without a strong butter flavor nor were they greasy. CHANGES I WILL MAKE NEXT TIME: I will cut the sugar back by 1/3 cup, because my taste buds felt like the unique flavor and spices were competing with the sweetness, and I think the sweetness should be a little less than, say, a chocolate chip cookie as this is a spice cookie, to me. (I've eaten sugar cookies that were less sweet than these, so I do think it's for sure too much sugar.) I give 5 Stars because I think it's a fantastic recipe to build on, and it's a fantastic treat for the holidays that is 'special', not just another sugar cookie.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I'm on Dukan Diet, so I used fat-free mayo and sub'd fat-free greek yogurt for sour cream; also, I only have dried dill weed... and this was FABULOUS over cod. My go-to dill sauce from now on.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I didn't have fresh squash or onion but did have canned squash with vidalia onion, so I completely drained and used three of those; I also was out of crackers so I used 2 cups of boxed chicken flavored stuffing mix (and left out the salt). This was the best squash casserole I've ever made and I didn't even have all the right ingredients!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
You HAVE to try this recipe: There's a reason it has 1500+ high ratings. If I could give this 10 stars, I would, it's THAT good! Like others, I did change it up a little... I tossed the diced (gala) apples in a few tablespoons lime juice to prevent browning; I added no sugar whatsoever; I also added blueberries. With the chips, I found the cheaper flour tortillas, the thicker kind that are on the shelf, were better than the more expensive refrigerated kind. That's just my opinion. Also, I sprayed the chips (after cutting the rounds into quarters with a pizza cutter), cinnamon-sugared them, resprayed, then second coated with cinnamon sugar. They were awesome by themselves. I 1 1/2 times'd this recipe and it made 1/2 gallon of salsa... which was the only food at the party that was gone before it was over.

Christmas Eve Beef Stew

Who'd-a-thunk that rosemary could make or break a stew? This is the way I will make it (with my own improvisations to vegetables) from here on out.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
I, too, tweaked the recipe... I didn't get the milk in it... what taste it would enhance, so I used some of the pineapple juice -as suggested by another reviewer. I left out the marshmallows, too, because I was afraid they would make it too (artificially) sweet with the whipped topping. It turned out pretty good, therefore it's a good base recipe for each to tweak to their own taste.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
I just recently dug out my Black & Decker Electric Citrus Juicer, so I'm making every lemon and limeade recipe I can find... I made this, subbing 1/2 C Splenda and 1 C Erythritol for the sugar (hate hate hate the taste and after-taste of anything with straight Splenda). Fan-freakin'-tabulous!!! And with the electric juicer it only took 6 lemons and about 6 minutes for all that juice.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
Made with Rice Milk, as I didn't have any milk on hand, and it still turned out great. (Also, my son is dairy-free, so he was able to have sausage gravy and he loved it.)
