Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
This was my favorite item at our cookout yesterday. After taking the silk off the corn (with the husks still attached) soak them in cold water for a couple hours; then you won't have to wrap them in foil but can cook them directly on the grill. YUM!

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
I cooked breakfast for a few friends this morning and was trying to think of something to do with eggs, green pepper, and onion. Voila! I had lil Smokies on hand, rather than the typical breakfast sausage, but those diced up worked just fine. Everyone loved these and they were SO easy to make for a group! I served them with optional sides of ketchup, salsa, or hot sauce.

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
For once I was trying desperately to follow this recipe exactly so I could give it a fair rating! Unfortunately, I discovered I didn't have any vanilla extract, so I had to substitute almond extract. I think these were still delicious. They are definitely SWEET. Don't expect otherwise and you won't be disappointed!

Eggplant Rollatini

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This was great. I don't see the point though in rolling up -- unless you are having company or a nice dinner, and then it's a great touch. Otherwise, save yourself some time on a weeknight dinner and do as others have suggested and layer. I followed some other hints and sweated the eggplant and also broiled the breaded slices to avoid frying them. I did this for five mintues per side. Then I layered this way in a glass baking dish: eggplant, ricotta, spinach (another addition that caught my eye in someone else's review), prosciutto, tomato sauce, and mozarella cheese. Baked at 350 for about 20 minutes or so, until the cheese was melted and starting to brown. We loved this and will make it again.

Shrimp, Broccoli, and Sun-dried Tomatoes Scampi with Angel Hair

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I made this a couple years ago (using this site) and am about to make it again tonight! I forgot to rate it before, but it is yummy! I'll serve it with some sort of fruit to round out the meal.

Perfectly Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This was really good. I used an organic Italian dressing instead of Caesar, just due to personal preference. Otherwise pretty much followed the recipe to a T. Thanks for sharing!

Green Bean and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
My good friend made this with our dinner last night -- it was SO yummy! He used olive oil instead of canola and added grape tomatoes. I will definitely make this.

Awesome Chicken and Yellow Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
I honestly did not think this was that amazing. It could have been heated together on the stovetop, no need for the Dutch Oven or the casserole dish. If I could make it over again, I would use only breast meat, but that's just a personal preference. Overall, this was just kind of "there" to me -- not great but not bad either.

Chicken with Red Grapes And Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This was delicious -- probably one of the best recipes I've made thanks to Allrecipes! I used more mushrooms than the recipe called for (a whole large container of sliced mushrooms). I also used a little flour to thicken the sauce, as other reviewers suggested; that worked perfectly. I also used white cooking wine instead of red, and I served the dish over egg noodles and with a green veggie side -- yummy!!!

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
My family and I have been making this exact recipe for years at Thanksgiving, so I know it is amazing! This recipe is the reason I don't like to try other squash casseroles -- honestly, the other ones I have tried NEVER stack up! Things I do differently: I don't peel or seed my squash. I cut the squash instead into about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slices before boiling, and I do not mash them after boiling -- I just put the slices in the casserole. It tastes delicious this way, although I imagine mashing is good for tricking picky eaters. Another good tip -- you can swap out yellow squash for zucchini in this recipe, or do half and half for some variety and color -- the taste is about the same. Delicious!

Bacon-Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was pretty good. I don't LOVE bacon so it wasn't my thing (four strips may be a little much). However some other people at our fourth of July get together thought they were great, so if you love the ingredients I say it's worth a shot. I used spicy mustard instead of honey, based on what I had, and added green onions because I had some leftover from another recipe. Overall just okay. Too bacon-y for me.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was really good. I read some other reviewers' comments and included some garlic at the end of sauteeing the mushrooms and onions, and also added some worcestershire sauce while cooking the ground beef. I eyeballed the flour and beef broth amounts, and added more of both as I felt was needed. I used low fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream. The sauce had a nice, thick consistency and was really yummy.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I made this for dinner (and dinners all week!) last night, and I couldn't think of a reason to rate it less than five stars. Here are some things I did a tiny bit differently: -A tiny bit of EVOO (instead of Canola) -I bought Habanero and Green chile turkey sausage -Did not use ham -Used fresh roma tomatoes from a friend's garden, instead of canned (tried to reserve as much juice as possible) -Added a diced, seeded habanero and red chile pepper (it actually didn't end up too spicy, although my nose was running a bit!) The stew was so yummy, and so colorful and pretty to look at! I noticed someone had trouble with the sweet potatoes softening fast enough -- just make sure you dice everything in small, bite-sized pieces and you won't have a problem with that. This was SO GOOD. One of the all-time best recipes I've made from this site.

Herb-Stuffed Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
These were SO GOOD! The only thing I added was a bit of chopped jalapeno, and a bunch of extra cayenne pepper because I like my food spicy! I will definitely make this again.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
These were really good. I forgot to put the cheddar cheese in, but still delicious. I do think that the amount of cream cheese was too much for four large tortillas -- I would have preferred it spread a little more thinly on maybe five.

Cilantro and Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
You do NOT have to deep fry these! Slice your potatoes very thin and sautee in a pan with some olive oil. We didn't have lemon juice on hand so we left it out, but these were AWESOME! I'm rating it a four only because I changed the cooking method.

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I made these for a baby shower we had for someone at work. They were a big hit! My boss had some and told me later "whoever made those cheese roll-up things did a great job!" I used diced red pepper instead of green onion because the onions at the store were awful looking. Delicious!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This was pretty good. I would add sea salt next time. I'm not normally a big salt person, but this was almost too 'simple' of a taste for me.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This was great. I made exactly as described in the recipe. I think this would be good without cheese, too. We served over whole grain couscous.
