Easy Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
I was craving chocolate late one night, came on allrecipes.com and found this recipe. 25 minutes later I had brownies. But, I didn't have shortening, so I used oil. The oil was drenching them and driping down my fingers, so that wasn't a good choice! But I made them again today with butter instead of shortening, and used 1/4 c less butter than it called for (shortening), and doubled the recipe because last time they were very thin. These were excellent!!! They would be good with nuts. Maybe even chocolate chips because they are not very chocolatey. But so simple and they really did have a great flavor. Just don't use oil and use less butter/shortening than the recipe calls for.

Sweet Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
This was excellent and so easy! I don't understand the less than perfect ratings on this one. My husband does not like sweet stuff, but even he liked them. I made these a couple weeks ago, but he asked me to make them again yesterday.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
Everyone was right! This was devine! I made it exactly as the recipe said except minus the terragon simply because I didn't have any. I didn't take half the soup out to puree- I just used my potato masher in the pot and it came to a perfect consistency that way. I will top with cheddar. It is sooo good! And makes a huge pot, perfect for a big family or gathering. YUM!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I came back to change the original review I left back in October. I halved the recipe last time and it came out dry and overdone, not moist and delicious like other reviewers raved. But I made it again today because I had 8 bananas that were turning brown. IT WAS WONDERFUL. It was moist and delicious, and just spectacular. I obviously calculated something wrong when I cut the recipe in half last time, because I followed it exactly this time, and it was the perfect bread. I loved it!!!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
What a fun way to serve spinach! It was a very unique way for my family and we all enjoyed them. I was late starting dinner though and had to cut and serve them right out of the oven, so they weren't firm yet. Next time I will try to plan far enough ahead to cool them first as directed. I might try adding some parmesean or romano next time to give it a more cheesy flavor, as the mozzarela is very mild. Thanks for the neat recipe!

Spinach and Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I disagree with those that said this recipe was bland. What else do you need when you have 7 cloves of garlic? I loved the flavor of the garlic, and I used red chili flakes from India, which were very spicy and gave the recipe some zing. Along with salt, that was all that was needed. We are a little short on grocery money this week, and my husband thinks he has to have meat or fish at every meal. I decided to try this because we had the ingredients and it could feed all 4 of us for just a couple of dollers. It was great and I will make it again! I may throw in some tomatoes when we have them, or some different white cheeses, to experiment in the future.

Baked Apple Oatmeal

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Perfectly sweeted and delicious! I wanted to make this without running to the store, and I didn't have raisins. But I didn't miss them. It was great!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
The name is no lie. These are unbelievably good brownies. The best brownie's I've ever made from scratch with cocoa and no added processed chocolate. My square pan was in the oven already, so I used a round pan and cut them into triangles. Soooo delicious- my family gobbled them up in no time.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Awesome! I used what I had on hand, which is the only reason I differed slightly from the recipe, and they were great! I used red potatoes (with skin), and rosemary instead of dill to avoid going to the grocery. YUMMMMmmmmmm.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This is the first time in my life that I've made Cornish hens, and they were awesome! I thought the lemon and rosemary flavors were divine together. I didn't taste the garlic very much though. Maybe next time I'll throw a few cloves in each hen? Don't know, but it was delicious either way!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I think next time I will try leaving them uncovered, as they were soggy instead of crisp as I could have liked. Good flavor, but soggy and stringy. I will definitely try it again uncovered. The flavors were great. Update: this time I followed some tips and cooked them for only 7 minutes. I still covered them. They were perfect.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was excellent and my husband wanted more. It's not often that he loves something like he did this. I don't have a grill and made it in the skillet with a little olive oil. It probably would have been better grilled because the outside got real done before the center was done, but it was great and we loved the flavor. My 5 year old daughter says she would not like it and then was surprised when she loved her first bite!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was SO good! I like broccoli but was getting SO bored with it. This was a great twist and my husband and I loved it. The kids did not like it, but will probably have to get used to the shock of not having the same old broccoli they are used to.

Honey-Garlic Angel Hair

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This was a quick and easy side dish that had a good flavor. I think I would have liked a little stronger garlic flavor, so I may add more garlic next time. I was planning to serve some sweet white corn separately, but ended up throwing it into the pasta. It was very good!

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This sauce was very good, but my pork chops were very dry. I see that other reviewers didn't have the same problem, so it must be something I did. My pork chops may have been too thin, or I may have needed to cover them in the oven (I did not assume this and left them uncovered). But other than them being hard and dry, the flavor was delicious.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
My pie wasn't perfect for my first time making an apple pie. But I can see the potential in the recipe if I had more experience. I made a big mistake in forgetting the flour in the sugar butter mixture! I remembered after I had finished my basketweaving on the crust, so I wasn't going to redo it all for the flour. Surprisingly, it was delicious without it. But, there was no syrup in the pie. All of the thin liquid had been absorbed by the apples and crust. But, this wasn't a bad thing, it was still very tasty. Next time I will make it correctly though. The apples were tart and I prefer more sweetness in a pie, so I may also try it with a sweeter apple next time. Regardless, my taste buds couldn't find a complaint with this one. I also used the "butter flaky pie crust" recipe and everyone raved over the buttery crust. All together, even despite my inexperience and mistake, my pie was a big hit and enjoyed by all on our family's Thanksgiving table!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Awesome! This crust was the start of my pie (filled it with Grandma Ople's Apple Pie recipe) and everyone LOVED it. We had it at Thanksgiving dinner and it was soooo good. The crust was the star and was the most talked about part of our deserts. I will keep this recipe and it will be my permanent recipe for pie crust. No need to look any farther.

Uglies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
First, I have to disagree with those that called these ugly- I think mine were pretty cute! I loved this idea of using the biscuits to make cups, and wanted to make something with them for breakfast. I didn't have any sausage, so I used about 1/4 pound ground beef, about 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning, and cracked 4 eggs into the drained meat. I scrambled that all together for a minute or so, then filled the cups. I baked according to the biscuit directions (13 minutes at 400 degrees) and then topped with a mound of sharp cheddar and returned to the oven for about 30 seconds or so. They were a big hit with my whole family, and were delicious! After having them this way, I think the sausage might have been too strong anyway. These were just right.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was quick and easy for an Indian recipe. This tasted almost the same as the butter chicken at our local Indian restaurant, except for the lemon. I may skip the lemon next time, or cut the dose in half, because I enjoy the sweetness of butter chicken and don't see a need for the tartness of the lemon. My husband is from India so he's a good judge, and he liked it a lot. I'm glad, because his mom's recipes are much more time consuming and exhausting for me to make on a regular basis. Thanks for the easy Indian recipe!

Double Delicious Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I was wondering where the substance of these "bars" would come from because the recipe seemed to contain only a crust and toppings, without a middle. They were a little thin and the edges of mine were hard and crunchy after they cooled so that we ended up cutting away the edges and eating the ones in the center of the pan. They had a great taste. Maybe next time I will make them in a square baking dish instead of a bar pan to make them a little thicker for my preference.
