Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I don't know why people rate recipes either high or low when they have altered the recipe, added ingredients and even water... and complain that it's not right or soupy. I fixed this recipe pretty much as is except I had more hamburger so I added one more can of Cream of Mushroom soup and a few more potatoes for the top. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal. This is a great recipe, thanks STP.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
This casserole was easy to make and so good to eat! I had to rescue the last piece to take the picture for Allrecipes. The family gobbled it up. I added a little bit of onion and a small can of green chilies, used 6 eggs and 1 1/2 cups milk. This recipe is a keeper, thank you for sharing.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I made these potatoes for my Christmas Eve dinner for the family. The only change I made was to use 8 oz of cream cheese and 6 oz of sour cream because my mother isn't wild about sour cream and I thought it would tone it down a little for her. While I intended to make it early, I was not able to, so they were made the same day. Bottom line is that everyone RAVED about the potatoes. They were wonderful. I did have to add a splash of milk to make them a little less stiff, but that may have been because of my cream cheese/sour cream change up. Thank you for sharing this recipe - it's a keeper!

Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I made these potatoes to go with pork chops last night. The family really liked them a lot. My husband said this recipe is a keeper! I had to adjust the recipe some because I was serving 7 people. I started with the baby red potatoes and used about a bag and a half. I put them in a 9 x 13 pan to roast. I didn't just put a single layer, but the pan was far from overloaded either. I used 1/3 cup oil, which was plenty, and then took the oiled potatoes out of the pan with my hand (as not to get all the excess oil that pouring them into the baggie would have done) and put them in a baggie. I lightly wiped out the excess oil from the pan. I poured between 1/3 and 1/2 cup of taco seasoning on the potatoes and tossed them around vigorously until well coated. I put them back in the pan and baked them at the recommended heat of 450 degrees F, and stirred them after 15 minutes, letting them cook another 20 after that, until they were fork tender. Really went well with the pork chops we cooked on the grill. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I will definitely make this dish again!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
We made this recipe exactly as posted. We really enjoyed these stuffed peppers. I liked them much better than a meatloaf type mixture. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it's a keeper!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I had some fresh blueberries in the freezer so I decided to make blueberry muffins. I found this recipe to be wonderful. The muffins were light and fluffy and I got 30 muffins out of a batch. I added 3 cups of blueberries instead of 2, but that is the only change I made. My husband said he liked them better than the last ones I made, and that was a recipe written by a famous Food Network Chef!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
My husband and I made these rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. We had to add a lot more flour because of the stickiness of the dough. I thought they were a little dense, but they we both thought they were good. Everyone at dinner seemed to like them. They were easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, Sherlie!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
I made these the other night to go with stew. It was a really hot, dry day so they didn't cook up as big as they could have. I've learned that with baking, the weather has a lot to do with how your baked goods come out. They were, however, excellent! My husband thought they were wonderful, especially with honey. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
Way late review - I made this for Christmas Eve dinner 2007! Well, better late than never. This was excellent. It was gobbled up, the meat was perfect! I doubled the sauce as others suggested and I'm glad I did (although I forgot to add the tomato paste). Next time I will try to remember to add the tomato paste, although it was great without it. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it's a keeper!

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This recipe sounded like it would be wonderful... and it didn't disappoint us! It was awesome! I used 6 pieces of bacon as other reviewers suggested, and I added a little more butter when making the mashed potatoes. Other than those two small changes, I followed the recipe. This dish was a nice change from the normal cabbage and potatoes cooked in with the corned beef. I can't wait to have leftovers. Great St. Patty's day meal, thanks for sharing!

Split Pea and Ham Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I had lots of broth when I cooked the bone and ham, so I used 2 20-oz packages of split peas, 2 onions and 2 carrots (that was about a cup of carrots). I sautéed the onion and carrots together in a little bit of olive oil and added them to the broth once I removed the fat from cooling it all night and heated it up. I threw in the peas, and the ham, and because I had used left over honey-baked ham, I added a dash of Worcestershire sauce a teaspoon of thyme, a dash of Cholula hot sauce and 3 bay leaves to cut the sweetness a little. I heated it up a little bit, but had to stop due to unexpected company. Today I started it back and put it on low on the stove and left for about an hour and a half. Well, luck was with me, because I accidentally have hit the button on the stove and it was on High the whole time I was gone! I thought for sure the peas would be stuck to the bottom of the pot – but all that happened was the peas broke down and the soup was done! I did run the immersion blender around a little just to make sure most of it was liquidated. I can’t believe how lucky I was, and also because this soup is GREAT. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
My husband and I (ok, mostly him) made this toffee for Christmas. It was easy to make and is delicious! We followed the directions with the exception of adding a teaspoon of vanilla. I took a few pieces into work and gave a few pieces to my mother and saved the rest for Christmas - everyone loved it. My husband has made toffee for years, so when using the candy thermometer he only took it to 285 degrees; he confirmed doneness by the color and the water test. The toffee was buttery, creamy and crisp but not super brittle, almost melted in your mouth! Thanks, FunkySeaMonkey, for sharing this recipe.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
I was making this recipe for a friend who just had surgery. After I filled the container that I was taking her, there was enough for my husband and I to each have a bowl. My husband tasted it, looked up and said this is a keeper! I never thought I would be a fan of chicken chili, but this is fantastic. Because we’re giving it away, I didn’t add any of the suggested toppings, I just didn’t have any in the house, but it was wonderful without any! I couldn't find tomatillos, so I added diced tomatoes it their place. That was the only thing I changed. This is going to be a new staple in our household, and the fact that it's healthy is a real plus!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
We loved this. I did change a few things after reading a few other reviews. I only added 1/2 the jalapeno pepper, I reduced the salt to 1 tsp in the marinade, and 1/2 tsp in the sauce. I used 1 tsp of garam masala instead of cinnamon in the marinade. I doubled the sauce recipe and added 3 teaspoons of the garam masala to what was already called for. I also marinated the chicken 30 hours; I was going to just marinate it all day, but something came up and we were unable to cook it that night, so I just cooked it the next night. It was tender and delicious. We grilled it on the barbecue and served it over rice with Naan. Thanks for sharing this recipe! 5 Stars with the changes!

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
We had this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious! I changed a few things, using ideas from the other reviewers. I made this in a smaller dish because I used fresh Anaheim chilis and didn't have enough for a 9 x 13 pan (I under-estimated the amount of peppers that were in a 7-oz jar). I also added one more egg, did not use the 1/2 cup milk (again due to the smaller size dish), and switched the tomato sauce to enchilada sauce. My husband and I really enjoyed this casserole. Thanks for sharing!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
I cooked this in my rice cooker, so I didn't fry any of the ingredients first. It was very eash to make. The rice needed more liquid, it was a little undercooked. I added some more stock and cooked it a little longer, which fixed it. I used a mild salsa, I added a half a bell pepper and half a small can of black olives. My husband said more tomatoes would have been good, too. Overall, we really did like this rice. I served it with tacos. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly, and we really enjoyed it. The flavors all blended really nicely and the sauce was a great compliment for the Souvlaki we had barbecued. (I used the Souvlaki recipe on this site.) I might try to add some cucumber next time, although we loved it the way it was! This recipe is a keeper, thanks!
