Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I was very pleased with how this turned out and my husband loved it! I read all the reviews and, with a few changes, this recipe is to die for! I used 1 can of Grand’s instead of 2 cans of crescents and separated them into 16 pieces. I only used ¾ cup of real butter (1 and ½ sticks), ¾ c. brown sugar and ¾ c. white sugar and let that simmer on low until it thickened up a bit. Then after I removed it from the heat, I stirred in the cinnamon, 1 tsp. vanilla and ¼ tsp. of nutmeg. I used Diet Mt. Dew but, only about half a can and I sprinkled cinnamon red hot candies on top. The dumplings really puffed up and filled a 9 x 13 pan and were not soggy after baking for 40 minutes. The red hot candies melted into red polka dots on top of the slightly crispy tops of the dumplings and the whole house smelled wonderful! This is definitely a keeper and next time I may try sprinkling pecans on top, too.

Pumpkin Pie Bars by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I made these for a bake sale fundraiser and they were a big hit. I had some sweetened condensed milk and canned pumpkin leftover from the holidays, so it was a good way to use them up. My husband said I should add raisins next time, too. I doubled the recipe with no problems.

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
I didn't have buttermilk so I used buttermilk powder. They didn't turn out too good, way too sticky, but I think that is because of the buttermilk powder. I ended up making drop biscuits and even though the dough was sticky, the biscuits were way too dry. I will try these again and re-post soon.

Oklahoma Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
I made these using some of the hints from previous reveiwers. I used 1/2 stick butter instead of 3/4 and 1 tsp. less of salt. My husband really liked them but all I could taste was the Worcestershire sauce. He wants me to make them with some bacon next time.

I have a small catering business and people go nuts for these! The shortbread crust really makes these a special treat.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
My husband said this was better than any salmon he has ever had! I only marinated for about an hour and it still turned out good. I have a basket to put on the grill so it is easy to flip the fish over without it sticking. I put all the seasonings in with the liquids too, and it turned out great!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This is a simple, basic way of oven cooking pork chops and my family loved it! I had 8 boneless chops, so I increased the ingredients with the exception of the butter. I only sliced up about 2 tablespoons and it was plenty to place around the meat. Also, I crushed up 2 sleeves of crackers and had plenty left over. Next time I will only use 1 1/2 sleeves. I placed them in a Ziploc bag and used a rolling pin to quickly turn them to crumbs. After dipping the chicken in the eggs, (I only used 2 eggs, too.)I dropped them in the bag of crumbs, shook it a little, then really pressed the crumbs into the meat. Next time I may try the garlic crackers like other reveiwers suggested. Also, during the last few minutes of cooking, I turned on the broiler and flipped them over to crisp up each side. I baked them on a Silpat in a sheet pan and they turned out crispy, yet juicy on the inside!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This smells wonderful when it is baking! I read through most of the previous reviews and took some advice. I used a bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut up in thirds and doubled the sauce. I also reduced my baking temperature to 400. It did not need to bake the whole hour either! I baked mine for about 50 minutes and it was a little tough. Next time I will try baking it for about 30 minutes. Very good served on rice!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I am only giving this 4 stars since I did take the advice of many reviewers and modified the recipe quite a bit. Instead of using a slow cooker, I cooked this in a dutch oven on top of the stove and it turned out really good. I served it over egg noodles, but my family likes it on rice better. I love the addition of the cream cheese instead of sour cream, too! Instead of buying exspensive stew meat, I bought a chuck roast and cut it up myself. ***Update: I made this again and didn't add the cream cheese due to not having any. It was still delicious. Probably not truly considered stroganoff, though. My family prefers it on rice, too.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I would have given this 5 stars, but since I made a few changes, I am giving it 4. I love All Recipes because I can read the reviews of other people and it is extremely helpful! I used a can of diced Mexican-style tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce and enchilada sauce intstead of taco sauce and omitted the green pepper. I also used a Mexican blend cheese and my family loved it! My husband took leftovers to work with him the next day and said they tasted even better when re-heated! This one is definately a keeper!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
I made this instead of baked corn for Thanksgiving and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I do agree with some of the other reviewers that it could be a little sweeter. I think fresh corn would be better than can, too. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan for about 55 minutes and it was cooked in the center. I will probably make this again with the addition of a little sugar.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I made this exactly as the recipe is stated and the cookies came out very thin. They had an excellent flavor though. I am going to read the other reviews and try again. Update! I made these again with 1/4 c. Crisco stick and 1/2 c. butter and they did not spread out as bad. I love this website because of all of the helpful reviews, too!

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
I first made this recipe in Home Ec class when I was in high school many, many years ago. This is a perfect no fuss recipe with basic ingredients and I make it often in the summer so I won't have to turn on the oven. I have made it with crunchy peanut butter too, and it tastes just as good as it does with smooth!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
The first time I made this, I went exactly by the recipe and it was pretty good. Since then, I have read most of the reviews and made a few changes. I substitute 1/2 cup of melted butter for 1/2 cup of the vegetable oil, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and pecans. This is the perfect fall recipe and makes my house smell wonderful while it was baking! I have a part time catering business and this is a customer favorite, especially in the fall! Being able to read other reviews of recipes is one reason I love this web site!!!!

Sand Castle Brownie Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
I have been using this recipe to give as gifts for several years. It appeared in a Taste of Home magazine 4 - 5 years ago. I sell real estate part time, and I like to give this as a thank you gift to clients. I use the pestel from my mortar bowl to pack down the ingredients tight, too.

Cherry Swirl Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
I have been making a similar recipe like this for over 20 years using Bisquick baking mix. I have made it using blueberry, strawberry, and cherry pie filling, too. I have tried making it in a 9 x 13 pan and it doesn't bake very good in the center. A jelly roll pan works the best!!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
I have made these several times for tailgating parties. I put the brown sugar in a ziploc bag and shake a few pieces of bacon and a couple smokies then wrap them up. I also sprinkle more brown sugar on top before baking. If your bacon isn't crisping up, put your pan under the broiler for a few minutes. Be careful, though, I almost caught the toothpicks on fire!!!

Slow Cooker Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
I have made this several times and with a little tweaking it is a family favorite. Using the advice of previous reviewers, I used italian sausage and ground beef and added about 3/4 cup of water. I did not add the tomato soup, either. I found wagon wheel shaped pasta and used it since it resembles a sliced pizza. I also under cook the pasta, because it will soak up a lot of moisture and turn mushy. You may need to add a little extra water after this has been cooking for a few hours, too. This is a keeper!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
This recipe is named appropriatey!! These are far better than any I have ever made or bought. I took advice from previous reviews and cut the topping amount in half. I also doubled the blueberries. I had enough batter for 12 normal size muffings and I used paper liners for easy removal. I have a small catering business and this will be my blueberry muffing recipe from now on!!!
