Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
This is one of my favorite recipes. I love eggplant and was looking for something easier to make than eggplant parmesan. I didn't think my 2-year-old would like it but he called it "pizza" and ate it up. Even DH liked he's not a big fan of eggplant. The only thing I changed was cooking it with foil wrapped around the baking dish. This made the eggplant more tender and easier to eat. Thanks for the tasty, easy-to-prepare recipe!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Excellent gumbo recipe. I made this weeks ago but didn't have any cajun seasoning or red pepper, but the 1/4 cajun seasoning and the pepper really spices this up and makes it delicious instead of just good. I made the roux a dark brown and let the cajun seasoning heat up with the roux. I also used half a cup of olive oil and added some butter to make the roux. I know, it's annoying when people make changes in the recipe, but this recipe is good just as it is or gives you some wiggle room to change things up a bit and make it your own.

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I saw this cooked in the movie Moonstruck back in the eighties. I tried it for the first time yesterday and loved it. I used a nice, dense piece of white bread. I cut out a hole with a small jelly glass, melted some butter in a pan, laid the bread down to brown, cracked an egg into the middle, added a pinch of salt and pepper, then flipped it to brown on the other side. Delicious! I don't like runny yolks so I cooked mine till just done. I spread a little grape jelly on the bread and cut a piece of toast and a piece of the egg for the perfect bite. An easier way of eating egg and toast, if that doesn't sound too odd.

Speedy Oven Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Fudge intimidates me, but I mastered this one. Cooked according to instructions and it came out perfectly. Poured it into a buttered 11x7 dish and it cuts beautifully. I forgot to add the vanilla, but it's still tasty. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper!

Cajun Crab Cakes (No Breadcrumbs)

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
So flavorful with all the spices and you can taste the crab because of the lack of breadcrumbs that are so much a part of other crab cake recipes. I broiled mine and they were light and tasty. I'll try frying and baking in the future just to see what a difference it makes. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Honey Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This dressing is fantastic! The only things I did differently was to mix some Grey Poupon course ground mustard in with the Dijon mustard, and I didn't add the lemon because I didn't have one. I prefer to make freshly prepared salad dressings and not eat the chemical-ladened dressings at the store. This is a keeper!

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Delicious! and simpler than another similar slaw recipe I have. The only thing I did differently is use sesame seeds since I had no cashews and toasted them and the ramen noodles in a frying pan on the stove instead of the oven. Thought I could control the toasting this way. I also added a T of sesame oil since I love the flavor it imparts in dishes. Thank you!

Great Grandpa's Garlic Pickles

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I've had a jar of dills sitting around for a while and have wanted to try this recipe for a while, so last night I made these pickles. When I made lunch I remembered them in the fridge and ate some with my meal. At first they just seemed good, but then I couldn't stop eating them! They are delicious and I'm going to make some for gifts this Christmas. Thank you for this wonderful sweet and spicy pickle recipe!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I prefer to make my own dressings rather than buy the artificial-tasting ones from the grocery stores. And why not? They're so simple to make. This delicious dressing recipe is light with just the right amount of tartness and flavor. I use this on a simple salad I prepare with the rich French Leek Pie recipe at AR. Thanks for this great recipe!

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
One of our favorite recipes from Allrecipes. Whenever I make pie crust for dessert pies, I will make extra so I can fit this dish into our menu plan. It is simple, rich, and delicious. My husband loves it. Since it's so decadent, we pair it with a simple salad with a tart vinaigrette dressing.

This is the easiest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. It makes a crunchy cookie, which is what I prefer. Thanks so much!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
One of the best Alfredo sauces we've found. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding the parsley at the end because I didn't have any on hand and I like my Alfredo sauces with just the cream, butter, and cheese. Thanks!

Best Oven Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
Oh, my goodness. This is one of the most delicious baked french toast recipes I've ever had. I first made it for Christmas last year, and used ordinary, cheap sandwich bread with the crusts on and it was OK. But now I buy the good quality farmhouse bread and cut the crusts off. I add more brown sugar to the bottom of the dish, too so when I cut it and flip it over on the plate, it's buttery and sweet. Served with grits and breakfast meat this is one of our favorite meals. Oh, and I don't refrigerate over night either and it's still great. I will for this year's Christmas morning meal. Thanks!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Best bread recipe I've ever tried. Make two loaves, or one loaf and rolls or buns, every week. I haven't made sandwiches with store bought bread for months and don't plan to. This bread makes every sandwich I make special and delicious. On weekend morning I put some pats of butter on a slice and bake it for 10 mins., then spread some grape jelly on it and eat it with my coffee. Will be no more settling for me.

Leek and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
Excellent quiche recipe that can be modified for any ingredient you'd like to include. The only things I did differently were to add a little nutmeg to the cream/egg mixture,didn't put the tomatoes on top because I don't like baked tomatoes, and I used a homemade pie crust that wasn't frozen. This led to the edges being burned during the 15-min. first heating, so I will either freeze the crust in a pan next time, or play around with the temps. Thank you so much!

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
This was my first time making homemade corn dogs and it's a lot of fun and not as much trouble as I thought. The batter is delicious and tastes better than the frozen kind (I left out the pepper because I don't care too much for pepper in certain foods). I'm a vegetarian so it's been a long time since I had one at the fairgrounds, but my corn dogs made with Morningstar Farm veggie dogs came out perfectly and tasted like I remember them. Will definitely place this in my permanent recipe box. Thanks!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
Update: I never do this, but just had to pop back in to say that this is our favorite soup ever, and I make it at least once a month. (Just had a bowl for lunch.) This time I forgot to buy fresh basil so I threw in some that I had dried from last year's garden, and it was just as flavorful. Thanks for this great recipe! **** So simple and delicious my so was slurping it up before he even knew what was in it. I thought he hated tomatoes—apparently not. Like others, I didn't peel or seed the tomatoes, but pureed everything right in the pot. I enjoyed the texture of the small seeds. Thank you for this delicious recipe! We had it with grilled cheese made from the Amish white bread recipe I found here and make every week.
