Spinach Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I started making this on Saturday afternoon with the intention of finishing up the next day as suggested. Well I put it in the fridge, and it didn't come out until Tuesday (I was very busy). Nonetheless, I rolled it up in the tortillas, sliced it up, and YUMMM! My whole family enjoyed this recipe. It's pretty rich so you can't eat too much at once. But it is very good in moderation. I will definately make this again.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
I made these cookies for my mini Independence Day celebration and they were so good and so easy to make! I followed the recipe except I subbed 1 TBSP vanilla extract for the brandy. I used a Pampered Chef medium cookie scoop, baked for 9 minutes, and ended up with 31 perfect cookies. Each cookie is 101 calories and sooo worth it. Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I'm going to use Spenda brown sugar blend and maybe 1/4 c of white sugar to lower the calories. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!!!

Chocolate Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This was really good and really easy. I used only 3 cups of milk, per the comments of others, but next time I'll use the full 4 cups (my pan was plenty deep). I also used 160z light cool whip. I took this to an Army Christmas party and apparently it was a hit because the pan got cleaned out. I will definitely make this again, probably sooner rather than later.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This dish was very good! I made some substitutions based on what I had on hand - 1 can of chick peas instead of chili beans, 1 can of stewed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce, 1 cup chicken broth instead of beer, 1 can of Rotel, 2 packages of taco seasoning and like 5-6 chicken breasts. Mine turned out really meaty and was perfectly seasoned. I cooked on low for 6 hours because I was way from home. After shredding the chicken I cooked for 1 hour on low. We didn't eat it until the next day and MMMMM! I put half away in the freezer for another time and I can't wait.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This is by far the most flavorful tuna salad I have ever made. I only had a 5oz can of tuna so I tried to scale back the rest of the ingredients. I used only 2 TBSP of mayo to save a few calories, omitted the dill weed because I didn't have any, and I added a hard boiled egg. This was delicious and I will definitely make again. I may even try this with chicken.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
I just took this out of the oven and have already had several "samples". This was my first attempt at banana nut bread and I am very impressed and pleased. A few changes I made: used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 cup pecans in lieu of the walnuts. I also mashed up the bananas and baked for 45 minutes. Per other reviews I had intended to add cinnamon but forgot so I just sprinkled some on top before I put it in the oven. This is awesome and I'm sure the whole family will enjoy it.

Blueberry and Raspberry Pancake Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This was so easy to make and delicious! I used 2.5 cups of fresh, hand-picked blueberries. I added 2 tsp of white flour to help thicken, but honestly I didn't even wait to see if it would be needed. This turned out perfect and I look forward to making again. I used this to top "Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes" also from this website.

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This was a very easy, tasty last minute meal to throw together. I didn't use the peppers as I didn't have any on hand. I added a can of Rotel at the advice of others, which added a nice kick. The seasoning was very good. I added a little ketchup to my 2 year old's plate and he gobbled it up. Will def make again. Thanks!

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This salad looked and tasted very good. It was quite flavorful, but only in moderation. I enjoyed the first bowl so much I went back for seconds. Half way through the second bowl it became a bit much. Will def make again, and limit myself to one bowl. Thanks!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made this at my sons 2nd bday party and it turned out great. I used less sugar as others suggested but otherwise followed exactly. As for the "slush" part, I took the frozen contents out of the freezer about 3 hours before the party. The first batch wasn't slushy at all, as it took a while for the pouch to melt with the soda. The second batch was perfectly slushy by the time I took it from the fridge and put it into the punch bowl. Next time I'll take the juice pouches out of the freezer 4-5 hours before I'm ready to mix and serve. Nonetheless, great punch.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
The only changes I made were to cut the salt and sugar in half. I usually don't put sugar in my pasta sauce, but I wanted to follow as close as possible. I simmered the meat sauce in the crock pot for a couple of hours the night before I actually served it. I used the no-boil noodles and they were fine without pre-soaking. The amount of ricotta was perfect, not overwhelming as some lasagna tends to be. The day we ate it I thought it was good, but not sure if it was worth the trouble and expense. Two days later this recipe had earned it's 5 stars. The flavor was incredible! I strongly suggest preparing this a day or two in advance and allowing the cheese flavor to really sink into the meat and noodles. Fortunatley I doubled the meat sauce so I'm going to go ahead and prepare another pan to freeze for later use.

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
This recipe was fantastic! I usually use packaged gravy but didn't have any on hand. I looked online for something i could make with ingedients I already had at home and of course I ended up coming to allrecipes.com. I didn't have the beef cubes so I used chicken instead. it was phenomenal! Thank you so much!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
(8/18/07)This was a good alternative to the package if you don't have it. I already had all of the seasonings needed. At first I was going to skimp on the salt and red pepper as other suggested, but I decided to throw it all in and it was perfectly seasoned. UPDATE (9/20/07)- I used this on a pound of ground turkey and it was great! I used rounded scoops and you could on even tell it was turkey. My husband wanted tacos again the following night.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
In an attempt to eat more fresh produce this year I bought 2lbs of peeled and chopped butternut squash from Sam's Club and decided to try something new. I scaled the recipe down to 4 servings and ended up with 6 - 1cup servings. I didn't have marjoram so I subbed oregeno. I also roasted the squash for 25 minutes in the oven, per the suggestion of others. The first night the soup was just okay, but after a couple of days the soup was amazing. I had it for lunch everyday for a week, and the 1 cup was just enough to really satisfy me. I will definitely make it again, and let it sit for a day or two before I plan to eat it. Thanks!

Mexican Wedding Cakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
I made these to go along with my Mexican themed Thanksgiving dinner and they were amazing! I had no idea what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. My guests also enjoyed them and I got quite annoyed when I realized they were all gone.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I made this dish last night and had it for breakfast this morning along with 2 slices of turkey bacon, and it was GREAT! My alterations: I used 2% sharp cheddar cheese, fat free cottage cheese, five eggs, added garlic powder and omitted the crutons. I didn't have a 9in pie pan and I didn't think it would fit into the 8in so I used a rectangle pan and it fit perfectly. I baked at 325 for an hour and it was perfect. Now I have a heat-and-go low carb breakfast for the entire week. Thanks for this submission!

Pina Colada Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I halved this recipe and it was pretty good. I had to freeze it overnight and then chop it up to get it to a nice slushy consistency, which made it even better. I actually loved the crused pineapple texture.

Momma's Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
This recipe was incredible! This was my first Thanksgivings dinner and I'm no chef. My entire meal came from allrecipes.com and everything was perfect. This dressing was so good it was the first thing to go. This will be on my Christmas menu and many other menus throughout the year.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
I made this for our Christmas pot luck at work and they were great. It was my first attempt at home made meatballs and I was quite impressed. I used ground turkey instead of beef and baked the meatballs then added them to the sauce. I let them marinate overnight and the next day they were excellent.
