Chiles Rellenos (Stuffed Peppers)

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Good but NEVER EVER rinse the peppers after roasting. A big no-no. It washes away the smokey-char of the skin that adds depth to the roasted pepper. Just remove what you can and the rest of the small burned bits remaining add to the dish's authenticity. I also am a purist and omit the meat.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I had this recipe saved in my recipe box for a long time since I've enjoyed quinoa by itself. And mixed with other veggies stuffed into green bell peppers etc. I gotta tell ya, this one kicks! This recipe can take you to the next level of your choice. Play with it and add whatevers and it still more than satisfies.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
4.5 stars. I've never met the perfect bean/ham soup but this one is the best so far. Better than my old standby too, which was quite good. It's even better the next day! This one stays in my recipe box.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I've made this for many years. Guests just stand at the grill to get them when done. They usually don't get a chance to make it to a plate! I use kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper placed in a ziplock bag along with a very good quality olive oil. Let rest for an hour before grilling. EXCELLENT!!

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I considered all of the recommendations in the reviews and adjusted to my preferences with outstanding results! The changes were: 1) Used regular ev olive oil 2) Omitted garlic powder and roasted 6 whole cloves garlic along with the cauliflower 3) Reduced salt to 1 teaspoon since I was using regular chicken broth as opposed to low sodium 4) Used 1 tablespoon flour It was thick so 1 more can of broth was required along with a tad more milk. Instead of a regular blender I used a stick-type and pureed all right in the soup pot for less clean-up chores. Excellente! This is definitely a keeper.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I opted for the slow cooker since it seamed fool-proof and should have been very tender. But no. Started the cooker at 7am St. Patty's Day. 11 hours later I stuck a fork to it. Brick. Fork wouldn't even penetrate it. Same after 14 hours. Ended up cooking this center-cut beef all night and pulled the plug after 21 hours with slight increase in tenderness but it sure smelled great! Had it for dinner the next night and everyone loved it even though it was still very firm. Next time I'll use a more conventional recipe from Allrecipes and just drink the beer on the side :) UPDATE: I believe my problem was in using Guiness EXTRA Stout. This, as I found out later, has a much higher alcohol content than regular draft. Almost 4 times as much. Too much booze would certainly toughen the roast.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
No tartar sauce in the fridge and baking cod tonight. Price of gas negates making a special trip to the store so turned to AllRecipes for help. So simple and a GREAT taste even using low fat mayo. I threw in a couple of dashes of tobasco sauce since I prefer a little kick and now I'll never buy store-bought again! And super cheap too!! THANKS!!!!!!

Dill Gazpacho

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
Absolutely the biggest hit at our Labor Day family get together! I increased the amounts by about 50% or so using 1/2 reg. and 1/2 plum tomatoes plus 1 red bell pepper in addition to the green one and 2 jalapenos (1 seeded, the other not). Since half was going to be blended anyway I fine chopped 1/2 and the other was course chopped for the blender,saving prep time. Speaking of which, the listed prep time was VERY conservative, more like double for me. Also seeded the cukes and put all seeds in the blender. I think it made for a less watery soup. Served with crusty Italian bread and a bottle of Tobasco sauce on the side and it's a meal itself!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
Fantastico! For the final broil I used a toaster oven so that these could be done in smaller batches and eaten immediately. My family waited eagerly for each batch! Since the sun dried tomatoes were already packed in oil, next time I'm going to reduce the amount of olive oil a bit. And I will be making it again very soon!

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2004
Varied this for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it (kids included!) : Used frozen petite green beans instead of fresh along with a generous pinch of red pepper flakes. In a large wok with 1T of olive oil cooked beans with other ingredients for approx. 5 mins. and then added 1/4 cup water, covered and let steam for 3-4 mins. Remove lid and cook until liquid has evaporated. Green beans still have a little crunch to them and these are awesome!!
