Garlic and Herb Pull Apart Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
Is there anything more annoying than a cook that substitutes near everything and then gives the recipe a low-star rating? If you sub biscuits with bread dough, garlic powder for fresh, thyme for rosemary and bake it in a loaf pan, you have just created a NEW recipe! Whew. With that being said, this is a terrific little go-to when you don't want to knead and wait (like when you're using a sauce for leftovers) for fresh bread dough. Because of the unhealthfulness (New word there!) we limit the amount our little people eat, however it is very easy to just keep picking away at it. Without the appearance of a slice of bread, it's no problem at all to grab about 40 little knots and think it is the same serving size. Great recipe. Thanks!

Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Added a good amount of cinnamon and grated some fresh nutmeg (REAL nuts, not the powder), stirred forever and got the food of the gods. Wow wow wow. Make sure you only use 1 cup of rice. It really will thicken up. Use vanilla and maybe even some lemon zest but keep stirring and it will be alllll good.

Smothered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
My pork chops came out so tough and dry! I added more of the browning sauce, garlic, salt and pepper an still found the gravy to be bland. Maybe a good starting point for a nice pork recipe but it definitely needs some tweaking!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I don't think I have ever given 5 stars on any AllRecipe....until now. These are amazing!!! They are simple (don't even bother stirring!), quick, cheap and easy to customize. The taste is Heath Bar Gourmet. I am putting them in cello bags for teacher gifts....if I can keep them out of my evil clutches first!!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
Once again, a five-star recipe that is....good. The taste is quite good but the breading needs help. I suggest skipping the breading altogether and simmering the pounded breasts in the juice of a lemon, a 1/2 cup of chicken broth, a splash of white wine and adding a few minced cloves of garlic. Towards the ends of the cooking time (20 minutes) add a tablespoon of capers in juice. Thicken to a sauce consistency and pour over.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
This is very good but, considering the cost of the cheese and cream, it's not worth it to make....just buy a jar of the good Alfredo sauce at your grocery store. I hate to say it but this is not one of those sauces that you need to make from scratch.

Roasted Butternut Squash, Olive and Parmesan Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
Like the other reviewers suggested, I left out the olives. I understand that the olive company created this recipe but there is no need for them in this risotto! The result of 45 minutes worth of stirring is....good. Not spectacular or even very good. It is cheesy so you may want to adjust that. Also, I would suggest topping this with roasted asparagus. As far as roasting goes, I slit the squash in half and roasted them for an hour alongside an oiled and foiled head of garlic. Add these at the last minute. Good side dish but A LOT of work so make sure your main dish is a crock pot recipe!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
Ok...I feel like a heel giving 3 stars to what is apparently a fabulous recipe - for everyone else. For me, this was a lot of work for a so-so result. I used 1" chops, white wine and everything else exactly as stated in the recipe. The chops were just as tough as with other recipes! I was really hoping to achieve the tender results so many others have claimed to get from this method. They were juicy and the sauce was fine but nothing spectacular. I have noticed lately that a lot of the 5 star recipes I try are just not that good. Am I expecting too much?

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
These are fabulous!! I used 3 cups of diced apples and 2 containers of lowfat Apple Turnover yogurt along with a teaspoon of cinnamon. Spread it with some cinnamon butter - YUM! I even doubled the recipe to send some to my son's preschool for snacktime. Thanks for a great and versitile recipe!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2005
This was an excellent recipe for peppers fresh from the garden. I omitted the cheese to save a few calories and it was still wonderful with just sliced tomato on top.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2005
I must have done something wrong but this didn't come out well! There wasn't nearly enough batter and it was crunchy and hard. It might have been better using applesauce in place of chopped apples.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
Did I do something wrong?? My cake was grainy and lacked that smooth truffle-like texture. It also had a noticable fat layer at the bottom from the butter - ewwwww! I used a silicone cake pan with good results, as far as being able to remove the cake without a lot of the hassle of all those foil layers.

Honey Nut Granola

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
Very good. I used the reviews as a guide and maybe I should have started with the original recipe and modified from there. It was too cinnamon-y and not quite sweet enough. It also took a very long time to brown up enough. I think sticking to the original would have been a better starting point for me!

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2005
This has very good flavor. It tended to be a little dry so next time I will make extra dressing. I also added a handful of olives, cut down the spinach to 10 ounces and used only 2 hardboiled eggs. It still made a ton!

Leftover Pot Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
Bland. Maybe turkey stock would make this a little less glue-y but the flavor is less than stellar.

French Canadian Tourtiere

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
This is somewhat similar to a dish my grandmother makes. However, she adds a cup or two of small-dice potatoes or even leftover mashed potatoes and a pinch of nutmeg. For meat lovers only!

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
Sorry but this didn't do it for me. The chicken was dry and rubbery, not crispy-skinned like I prefer. Maybe using fresh chicken that has not been frozen first would help.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
I've made this recipe a few times now and it's delicious. They do tend to dry out after a day or two so make it your mission to spare them that fate and eat them right away!
