Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2005
This is the best fruit pizza! I had a friend in college who made fruit pizza with a glaze on top and could never find a recipe similar until now. I made this for a pot luck breakfast and followed all directions. It turned out great. I even made it the night ahead and refrigerated all night. No soggy crust! Don't skip the glaze, though. It makes this pizza stand out from all others. I may double it next time, because I didn't have enought to cover the entire pizza. The taste makes the long preparation time definately worth it! Update: I made this a 2nd time in a 9x13 baking dish. It turned out just the same and was very easy to store in the fridge.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
I LOVE this recipe! It makes wonderful leftovers too. I make this on Sunday nights and have leftovers for lunch all week! I've made this dish for years with a few adjustments, because it does have too much cheese. I only use 15 ounces of ricotta. Instead of mixing 1 pound of mozzarella with the noodles, I only mix about 2 handfuls. Just enough to see it melt, but not overpowering. Then I sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top of the spaghetti sauce before putting it in the oven. This way I can monitor how much cheese I've got. Try these adjustments and I bet you'll give this 5 stars! (By the way, you can always add meat, mushrooms, etc.)

Quesadilla Jalapeno Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2005
I used this in place of sour cream with my quesadillas. I was surprised that it was not as flavorful as I thought it would be, but not bad. I think I'll stick with sour cream next time, though!

Green Onion Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
The flavor to this dip is OK. I make a dip that is similar to this but adds flavor and presentation. Add real bacon bits along with the green onions to the mix instead of salt. Once the dip is chilled you can roll it in chopped pecans to make a cheese log. It's delicious when you dip in Wheat Thins!

Yum! I followed others' advice and cooked my sauce on the stove and added some cornstarch. My husband and 3 year old loved them! Thanks!

Au Gratin Potatoes II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I thought this was OK. My husband loved it though. I think it should have been a bit cheesier. The only change that I made was using Ritz crackers instead of cornflakes and added salt and Italian seasoning .

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I'll never look for another key lime pie recipe. This was perfect! I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks to the users that suggested juicing the key limes with a garlic press. I also heated them in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and they juiced much easier.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Now I know why this is the highest rated recipe on Allrecipes. The muffins are quick and easy, but look like you've spent a lot of time on them. I'm not much of a baker, but I love that every ingredient is something you always have on hand. And best of all is that they are delicious!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I don't know what I did wrong, but this was not nearly as good as I expected. It wasn't terrible, but I won't make it again. It was too creamy and not very spicy.

Old Bay® Shrimp Fest

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This was not as spicy as I thought it would be, and I could not taste flavor from the beer. I believe the cooking times were a little off also, because the corn was not done. I'll be looking for another recipe.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
I just came back from the Cayman Islands with a craving for rum cake, especially after having all the different types on the island. I can honestly say that this version tops any rum cake I had on the island! I followed the recipe exactly, but didn't use any nuts. I also used skewers to poke holes in the bottom of the cake to drizzle the sauce. The first day it tasted great, but the next two days were even better. Make this one a day ahead!

Orange Honey Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
I was really disappointed in this dish. It looked much better than it tasted. I did make a few changes. I used chicken breast tenders cut into pieces, which turned out nice and juicy. However, I took the advice of another reviewer and used orange marmalade instead of orange juice, and it turned out too orangey. I'm not sure if I'll make this again, but if I do I will use more honey, which I could not taste at all this time.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
Amazing! This is a great recipe. My husband used to work at Outback and it met his approval! I kept the same ingredients, but made a few preparation changes. I used chicken breast tenders to shorten cooking time. I followed others advice concerning the bacon grease. First, cook the bacon. Then saute the mushrooms in the bacon grease. Then I set the mushrooms on paper towels to drain and cooked the chicken in the remaining grease. This adds a lot of flavor and uses only one skillet! I had very little clean up, which others complained about. I also mixed the honey mustard ahead of time. (Make sure you whisk it!) When I was ready to bake it took no time and little clean up!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Surprisingly good! I had a bunch of broccoli, that I decided to cook instead of eat raw for the first time. My husband and 3 year old both loved it too. This is a keeper, thanks!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Very good! I was scared of cooking the meatballs in the sauce also, but they turned out great and added a nice flavor. I'm sure it's not nearly as healthy as cooking them separately, but it sure was easier!
