Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I modified the recipe out of necessity: I decided to make meatloaf at the last minute and didn't have mustard powder, so I used same amount of Coarse Ground mustard (has mustard seeds in it). I also didn't have beef boullion granules, so had to 'break up' a boullion cube instead. I did go ahead and double the sauce as others suggested. THIS SAUCE IS AWESOME!!! I don't care for meatloaf particularly, but my husband loves it. The sauce made me actually decide I would have to make meatloaf more often.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
OMG! Sooooo yummy!!! I was a bit concerned with the 3 cups of white sugar (too much? white?) so I used 1 cup Splenda, 1 cup dark brown sugar packed, and 1 cup white sugar. Perfect! I wanted to add icing, just because, so I made a glaze of lemon juice and confectioner's sugar. It really added some pop to the ginger, to me. But this recipe is totally delectable on its own.

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
This is an awesome 'base' recipe; I made some changes out of necessity and some out of personal preference. Before even starting, I wasn't sure about the garlic salt (fresh garlic,minced, instead) or the seasoned salt (sounded kind of salty & ick, so I omitted). I didn't have lemon juice. I had cream of chicken on hand and I had a can of sliced mushrooms on hand, so I used those instead of crm of mushroom soup. I used double the amount of cheese (we like a little broccoli with our cheese :). With all that said and done, this was SO GOOD. My 10 year old loved it. I'm gonna use left over ham (cubed) and make again. BTW//I HATE mayo, but you cannot taste mayo in this.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is fantastic! I had to make the last cup of milk heavy cream (only had 1/2 c milk)and I added 3 dashes (maybe ~ 1/8 to 1/4 tsp) nutmeg. This is the very best rice pudding I've ever had. If I change anything else, I might cut down down on the sugar by a tablespoon or two- the golden raisins make would make up the sweet 'difference'.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Very, very good roast. I didn't coat & brown my roast (I used eye round). I also didn't have onion soup mix (used dried onion instead) or vermouth (used white wine). I also added about a 1/2 tsp rosemary (b/c after trying the recipe for the Christmas Beef Stew, I found I LOVE rosemary with my roasts and stew).

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.

Eggnog I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
REALLY good eggnog... and I didn't appreciate the whole "not too thick like other eggnog" thing, until I made this: Now I realize how gross store bought eggnog can be.

Chicken Danielle

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
I'd had this at a restaurant... and then they quit serving it :( When I decided to find a recipe to make it myself, I was so lucky to have tried this one first. OMG! It's so great and so versatile (I made with 2 cans sliced mushrooms, drained and white wine the first time b/c that's all I had and it was still awesome). Great with Garlic Green Beans

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:)

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.

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.)

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
took what I had and used this recipe as a guide: no chuck, so used ground chuck; no beef broth so I used 1 can Golden Mushroom soup (not diluted); added 1 heaping tbsp minced garlic (the refrigerated kind) and next time I'll use more; used 1 regular onion instead of the green onions; no flour or other thickeners (didn't seem to need it); and closer to a cup and a half of sour cream. I forgot the mustard, but I didn't miss it. I give 4.5 stars, but since AllRecipes won't let me, I rounded up.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: May 12, 2005
Added chopped onions to loaf, subtracted brown sugar from topping (I did this the first time I cooked it, based on personal tastes). AWESOME!

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the 2 pinches ground cinnamon. This was perfect! This is less sweet than sweet potato casserole, which is great when you want something that's more like a light side than a heavy dessert.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Instead of a tired old graham cracker crust, I used the recipe on here for Molasses Sugar Cookies-placed the cookie dough in the bottom of my pan and baked for about 10 minutes. When I pulled the pan out of the stove I had the cream cheese layer ready to pour in, placed my pan back in the oven for 10 more minutes while I readied the pumpkin layer. Once the pumpkin layer is in, I allow the cheesecake to bake undisturbed until the center doesn't appear glossy anymore. As soon as that sheen disappears I cut the oven off, allow the cheesecake to sit 10 more minutes then remove. We could care less about cracking, but it's minimal anyway. The molasses sugar cookie crust makes this cheesecake over-the-top and compliments the pumpkin beautifully.

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.

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.
