Sweet Zucchini Relish

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Great recipe, my review is for the recipe as stated. However, 6 cups of sugar, in my opinion is way too much. The ratio of sugar to vinegar should be the same. I used 2 cups of sugar and apple cider vinegar instead of white. I will definitly make this again with those changes.

Roasted Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This tasted good, but far too much grease. I made the recipe exactly as written and the potatoes were swimming in a pool of grease. I would cut back the cheese to two cups and use milk the next time. They tasted good but are a heart attack in the making as written.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Fabulous recipe! Who knew beer would make such delicious sauce! I followed the directions exactly as written except I used fresh polish sausage. If you're a fan of fresh polish sausage (not the name brand smoked kielbasa) try it, you won't be disappointed!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Absolutely delicious! Used 1/3 cup olive oil and doulbed all spices. I added everything all at once, cooked on high for ten minutes then reduced the heat to medium until the potatoes were just softened. Don't overcook, a little crunch is a good thing!

Quick Egg Roll Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
My two star rating is for the sauce as is. Here is my advice: Cut the vinegar to one tablespoon! This sauce will make you pucker if made as written, the vinegar takes over the taste of anything you put it on! Then add one tablespoon of white sugar or honey. Now you've got a dipping sauce!

Pasta Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Excellent! Next time I will add one more clove of garlic to the dressing. I added an 8 oz. can of water chestnuts for a little extra crunch and would suggest doing that. Mozarrella would be a good choice for cheese also. Very versatile recipe, I would highly recommend it!

Chicken Salad Balsamic

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
The first time I made this exactly as written, hence the 4 stars. The second time I made these changes: 1.Used equal amounts of oil and vinegar. 2.Added a heaping tablespoon of honey. 3.Omitted the walnuts and added an equal amount of sunflower kernels. 4.Omitted the celery and added 1 cup of dried cherries. 5.Used two cups of apples first soaked in orange juice for two hours. I used a rotisserie chicken. Served it over a bed of romaine/iceberg lettuce mix with some baby spinach thrown in, and sides of tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, and red onion. I served this at a luncheon along with “Zucchini Cornbread Casserole” also on this site and apple cake to a group of teachers at our school. It was a huge hit. Here is an exact quote from a thank you email I received later in the day. “That salad was KILLER! Perfect mix of sweet and tart, crispy and chewy. LOVED IT! Thanks so much, brother!”

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
My rating is for the recipe exactly as given. The first time I took the advice of another reviewer, lightly salted the zucchini and squeezed out the excess water (big mistake) but didn't change anything else. Well it was way too dry and lacked flavor. There’s not a lot of liquid in the recipe to begin with. I made this for the second time yesterday with these changes: 1. DID NOT squeeze out the water from the zucchini. 2. Added a half cup of sour cream. 3. Added a third egg. I took this with the above changes to a church potluck and was inundated with requests for the recipe. It was fabulous – moist and very savory. It seems the recipe author intended for it to be moist hence the last part of the name “casserole”.

Carol's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
By far the best chicken salad recipe out there! I have made it quite a few times and always get rave reviews. My advice: • Use thigh and breast meat from a store bought rotisserie chicken. • Make sure the grapes are sweet. • Finely chop the celery and onion (fresh chives may be subbed for onion) • Coarsely chop the water chestnuts. • Don’t dice but coarsely grate the Swiss cheese. Serve this to guests and you will get a lot of requests for the recipe.

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
This is a wonderful way to serve vegetables! Roasting vegetables gives them a nutty flavor that just can't be had steaming or boiling. I kept the ingredients and amounts the same however I changed the order of things. Drizzel vegetables with olive oil first and toss to coat, then spinkle with the rest of seasonings and toss again. They get coated much more evenly this way. Thanks for a great recipe!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
My rating is for the recipe as is, it's very good. I won't change a recipe then rate it based on the changes. And quite frankley I don't know why allrecipes allows that, it's certainly not fair to the submitter. Having said that, IMHO adding an egg to the cream cheese/sugar mixture turns this into a 5 star recipe!

Bella's Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
The memories of brussels sprouts as a kid can still get the gag reflex going, that said these are wonderful. I followed the recipe as written and was delighted with the results. This recipe would be easy to turn into sweet and sour with the addition of some sugar or honey.

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
An OK meatloaf, maybe. It sounded better than it really is. Mushroom Swiss burgers are tastey for sure, but this combination just doesn't work. There are about a million meatloaf recipes out there, don't waste your time with this one.

BBQ Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
Delicious chicken wings, I am from western New York and believe me I know wings! I followed the recipe exactly; I marinated them overnight and my only difference was to bake them in the oven. I chose this recipe because I am always looking for something different and the gin stood out. I will make this again however I will omit the gin - it gave a slightly bitter taste. I will also leave out the soy sauce, it didn't add flavor just more salt. I disagree with another reviewer that bottled teriyaki marinade is just as good, no way. This is a good recipe and in my opinion will be better with slight modifications.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I made this into a pizza crust. I took other reviewers suggestions and used milk instead of water and real garlic in place of the granules. I also used 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped finely instead of the dried variety. Pizza toppings were olive oil, fresh basil, sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and a light sprinkling of oregano. Everyone raved about it. One suggestion - cut back the salt to 1/4 tsp.

Awesome Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I made steak kabobs yesterday for Fathers Day in this marinade, wonderful flavor! I agree with another reviewer that the steak sauce brand is important, I used A-1. and don't skimp on the honey. I used eye of chuck steaks and I marinated them overnight. I made extra marinade, boiled it then thickened it with corn starch and served it as a sauce on the side, what a hit!

Best-Ever Texas Caviar

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
Great recipe, I would recommend using only half the amount of beans and corn, but exact amounts of everything else. Kick it up a bit with some "Frank's Red Hot". This is great party food, you will get a lot of compliments.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
A wonderful flan! It is the perfect mate for a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. I increased the sugar to one cup and used my favorite vanilla "Watkins" double strength. I also followed another’s advice to heat the pan first. Eight ounces is just the right amount of cream cheese, it enhances the texture but not at all like cheese cake. I would not recommend lessening the amount of cream cheese and increasing the amount of eggs, it's perfect as is. I did not use the towel trick but instead rested my baking pan on tooth picks to raise it off the floor of the water bath pan. This will be the center piece desert for my Christmas dinner.
