Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
these are sooo delicious! i had to make some modifications based on what i had on hand, but they still turned out amazing. i did use instant oats (since that's all i had), natural peanut butter instead of almond butter, omitted cherries, and did a mix of semi-sweet chocolate, white cchocolate, and butterscotch chips and they were sooooo good! didn't have to add the extra egg like other users did. boy o boy is this a calorie bomb though, but considering how nutritious it is i'd say it's worth it! =)

Devil's Food Cake I

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Although this isn't the absolute best devil's food chocolate cake I've ever had, it's the best one I've personally ever MADE! Lots of the recipes on this site gave me chocolate cake that looked lighter in color and didn't have that deep chocolate flavor I was looking for. This one was really good with tweaking that I did from others' advice. I found this a TAD dry, but it could've been from how I baked it. I made mini cupcakes with this baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes...i suspect i should've baked them for maybe 12 or 13 minutes. Also, I added 1/2 tsp of instant coffee granules and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to the warm butter/chocolate mixture and used a few tablespoons of bittersweet chocolate chunks. To make it even EXTRA chocolatey I took the advice to add 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder to the dry mix. I'm hoping this turns out even better next time I make it cuz that would be to die for! And oh yeah, i topped this with a dollop of cream cheese frosting. Perfection.

Peanut Butter Carrot Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I love the taste and the nutritional value of these cookies, but I wasn't too crazy about the texture. Like other users, mine fell apart! I can't even pick them all up without it falling apart in my hands. I'm not quite sure what I did wrong. I made these before and they turned out better. This second time around was disappointing.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Wow, this turned out great! I also followed the suggestions to sub 3/4 oil with applesauce and it turned out super duper moist! Top with a bit of cream cheese frosting and it was such a treat. Similar to carrot cake in flavor. I baked mine in medium muffin pans 350 degrees for 22 minutes and turned out great!

Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
The flavor in this was EXCELLENT! That topping was out of this world, too. So crunchy, sweet, and nutty! I tried to use a whole can of Libby's to make 2 pies. One can is not quite enough according to the recipe, but I decided to just use one can and it was just fine for the two pies. I also added a package of cream cheese just to try it out and it added a nice zing. I just wish the crust wouldn't get soggy so quickly because then it would definitely be 5-star!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
MMMMMM! This was great. You can pretty much use whatever cheese you have on hand. Also, like other users I didn't feel like adding eggs would do anything. I'm glad I omitted them because the recipe turned out great without them. Instead of using regular cheddar + Extra sharp cheddar, I just used medium. I was all out of Jack cheese so I just added more muenster. Next time I will throw in whatever cheese I have, plus processed cheese food to keep it creamier. I added parmesan and bread crumbs on top and it added an excellent touch. This stays nice and creamy as long as it's warm, because once it cools down it cakes up. I'm hoping that adding extra milk/cream next time will help it stay creamier longer. I already have requests to make this for the next party. Definitely a keeper!

Pan De Sal I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
I followed GOTOHELLER's advice and these turned out pretty good. My only criticism is that they turn out really small, and most pandesal I've eaten are about double the size so maybe next time I will make the rolls bigger. Some of the dimensions in the recipe were also confusing, like that 1/2 inch circumference thing? uhhhh....isn't that like the size of a pencil? Anyway, I didn't bother with that. Just divided them into 20 equal pieces and rolled them into slightly oval shaped balls. Turned out pretty good, but I would've liked them to be a little more fluffy. I'll make it again with some modifications.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I attempted to make this recipe after I realized that i missed our street fair today, and I refused to wait several more months until I could eat fresh kettle corn again. After trying this recipe I can honestly say that I will NEVER EVER buy kettle corn at the fair anymore! This tastes the same, if not better, than the stuff at the fair..and since you make it yourself you can control how much sugar you put in it. I followed the advice of other users and my kettle corn turned out perfectly first time around. I used a non-stick wok with a clear lid so I could see what was going on. I heated the oil to medium high along with three kernels. Immediately after they popped I threw in the sugar and the kernels and had to use a spoon to mix them up at first because they didn't seem to mix even after shaking the wok, so the spoon worked great. I covered it and did the 3-second-shake-and-wait deal and it turned out perfectly! Just sprinkled with some salt and it tasted perfect! Thanks for submitting, and thanks for the tips to make it better allrecipes users!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Even though it was a bit of a headache, I halved the recipe (but didn't bother trying to half the egg and put the whole thing in instead) and was still able to make six huge cinnamon rolls that filled a 9" square pan. Based on other reviews I also made a few modifications - -subbed 1/2 wheat flour -used butter instead of margarine, and used half as much butter for the filling than indicated in the recipe. -baked in a square pan instead of a muffin pan. -added chopped pecans instead of raisins for the filling. -Baked for 25 minutes at 375 degrees. Whew! I know that was a lot of modifications, but I'm glad I only made half because there is NO WAY we'd be able to eat all 12! They did turn out a little bread-like and fluffy, but I think they actually tasted better that way. I found these just the perfect amount of sweet, but I suppose you could use a tangy cream cheese frosting if you really wanted to indulge. Overall, great recipe! The taste is wonderful, and I don't feel as guilty eating these cinnamon rolls compared to those heavier kinds filled with a ridiculous amount of calories! Oh, and like other reviewers, I did have to add quite a bit of flour when I was kneading it because it was super wet and sticky. I just added it little by little because I didn't want to add too much extra flour. I would say I added almost 1/4 cup total of extra flour when I was kneading and rolling it out, and I was afraid this would make the dough too tough, but it still rose fine,

Nannie's Hot Milk Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
mmmm! Very good! I halved the recipe and was still able to make a dozen cupcake versions of this. I just baked for 30 minutes. I did tweak it by adding a couple teaspoons of instant coffee, cocoa, and butter to the hot milk and it made somewhat of a mocha version. I did find that it was a little sweet for my taste though so maybe I will try only half or 3/4 of the sugar next time. But still a keeper!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
Delicious! I halved the recipe and still made 18 good size cookies! Didn't have any walnuts so I subbed pecans (and doubled the amount since I had LOTS on hand). Also subbed half of the flour for wheat flour and it still turned out perfect! My favorite allrecipes cookie so far!

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I agree with other users. It's really good with balsamic vinegar, too! If you want an extra little punch, green olives or capers are delicious with this as well. I've also seen roasted red peppers used in this dish too. All equally delicious!

Diamond Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I liked the flavor combination in this dessert, but I found that the actual bar part/crust was a little weak and crumbly. Maybe next time I will try a graham cracker base or something else. I decided to toast the coconut and walnuts and that added a delicious touch! Overall pretty good and I just might make it again to get my chocolate-coconut fix!

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
i added semi-sweet chocolate chips and a couple teaspoons of instant coffee (added to the milk to dissolve). i did have to bake for an additional 7 minutes, similar to the experiences of other users. I topped it with vanilla cream cheese frosting. Thanks for this easy recipe. =)

Chocolate Applesauce Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
the cake by itself definitely didn't seem chocolatey enough, but what do you expect for using just a couple squares of chocolate? I also didn't have any condensed milk so I had to make a substitute using evaporated milk and sugar and it still turned out okay. This might explain why I had to bake 10 min longer than the recipe called for. After adding the frosting (I used the sour cream chocolate frosting on this site) it tasted great. Overall, it was easy to make. I'm subtracting a star just because the actual cake needed more chocolate, but after tweaking it a bit, I will make this again.

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
very good! i didn't bother measuring the powdered sugar, but i'm pretty sure i didn't even use a cup of it. My mixer broke so i had to do this by hand with a wooden spoon and the frosting still turned out wonderfully!

Double Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Delish! I had to modify the recipe a little bit just because of the ingredients that I had on hand. I ended up using half salted butter and half shortening. Also, before adding the chocolate and nuts, I divided the dough in half and made one half white choc. macadamia (with a dash of cinnamon...trust me it works), and the other half into chocolate chip walnut. I think this is also a good base recipe for a cookie that you could add whatever you wanted to. They did end up a little on the crispy side (which I LOVE), but to keep my chewy-softer-cookie-lovin' husband happy I'd bake it for a minute or two less.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
these muffins were so delicious!!! i just made these at the spur of the moment so i didn't have all the ingredients and supplies at hand but it was still soooo good. i used a greased 6"X9" glass pan sprayed with Pam, and had to use regular vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt but it was still good. oh, and i still used the whole egg even if i halved the recipe and it was totally fine. i will definitely make this one again!
