Linguine with Clam Sauce and Baby Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Thank you, Mountainrider! I am not a pasta fan, nor do I know much about clams, but your recipe is such a fantastic balance that I couldn't stop eating. It is inexpensive and easy and will definitely go to the top of my "company dinners" list. I did cut the butter in half after reading other reviews, and needed to cut some of the bouillon because of the sodium. Still, the flavor was fantastic!!! I've been cooking for over 50 years, and it's nice to know that there are still some surprises out there.

Cream of Celery Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
Just left the dinner table - yum, yum, yum!I followed recipe pretty much, but took advice from other reviewers and made these changes: added garlic and a pinch of nutmeg, did not strain the veggies, just pureed them in my Cuisinart (the immersion blender others suggested just did not make it smooth enough for my taste). Also, because there are only two of us here, I took the advice of others and omitted the roux so I can freeze 2 cup portions and add the roux (2 T. butter. 2 T. flour and 2 cups milk) when I thaw and heat it. Thanks for the very tasty soup, and because my husband is on a sodium restricted diet, I can make it and use it in all those wonderful, easy casseroles that I used to make with Campbells Cream of Celery Soup, but without the high sodium count.

Butternut and Apple Harvest Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
Would give it 10 stars if I could. Absolutely perfect! I added celery, but otherwise followed recipe to a tee. It also freezes well, which is wonderful when you're cooking for two. Great with a loaf of crunchy hot bread. I've also used it as an appetizer by serving it in little shot glasses (you can get them at a dollar store in packages of four) - put them on a silver tray -always impresses! Thanks for a GREAT recipe.

Thanks for the post, Bridget! Have made it 3 times in 3 weeks - we LOVE it! Have served it with steak, with pasta, and tomorrow and am taking a neighbor's advice and will serve it with scrambled eggs for breakfast. I ad never had Asiago cheese, but really enjoyed it.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
My husband is on a very restricted diet and needs more grains - this fits the bill! It was delicious, and I really appreciate the help in meeting his dietary goals. Thanks for posting.

Best Hamburger Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Have used the recipe many times before, but never put in a review. Excellent! I omitted the onion soup because of the high sodium content, but followed the recipe other than that. Also, didn't have a grill handy, so did 5 minutes on each side in a skillet. YUM@! Thanks for a tasty "upgrade" to regular burgers.

Cross Rib Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
This is my favorite recipe website, have been using it for years. But YOU, CINDY B., may have just become my all-time favorite submiter! Wish I could give it 10 stars! Just had it tonight (went a bit light on some of the spices because my husband is a sissy when it comes to"hot", but otherwise followed it exactly). It was SOOOO wonderful!!! Was trying to decide what to serve for Christmas dinner, as we have a zillion kids coming, but you've solved my problem - this is it!!! No big, bulky turkeys. Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe. I'll be using it around here often. :-)

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Had a disappointing experience at a very good local restaurant with their fish chowder, so decided to try one on my own. So glad I did - this is FANTASTIC!!! As many other reciewers, I cut the half-and-half with 1% milk, and it was still wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe - it will be present at out next dinner party.

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I've been cooking for over 50 years now, and this is the BEST corned beef I've ever made! Followed suggestions from other reviewers about adding onion, and especially adding the glaze for the last 40 minutes in the oven. I'll never make it any other way. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Following some other reviewer's suggestions, I made the following changes/ additions: used 4 c. chicken stock and 3 c. water, 1 c. each of carrots and celery. I soaked the beans overnight and then let it all cook in the crock pot all day on low. It's the most delicious soup I've ever made (and I'm 70 years old, so have made more than a few soups!) - Thanks for sharing, Pat!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I would give it TEN stars if I could! Not being a fish lover, that's a huge compliment from me. Besides beling delisious, it was so easy! We're having a dinner party this weekend and I had the menu all written up, but I just changed it - we'll be eating Maple Salmon. Thanks Starflower!

Baked Cod

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Absolutely delicious (and I am not a fish-lover)! Cod does have one strip of bone, but you can ask your butcher and he'll remove it for you. This was even good the following night, reheated in the microwave.

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
This recipe really is "the best of the best" - WOW! Absolutely delicious, and so easy. I'm forwarding it to my daughter so my grandsons, age 10, can make them. I LOVE the fact that it only makes 12 - there are only two of us, and just so much room in the freezer. As for Renee's overflowing muffins, could she have forgotten the baking powder? I was concerned, as I filled the muffin cups, that it would be too much, but it worked out perfectly, a few quite tall, but none running over. And Tricia Jaegar's problem of the muffins sticking to the pan: the recipe says to spray the top of the muffin tin with non-stick coating, AND LINE WITH PAPER LINERS. (I do symathize with her, having it happen in a clean oven). Thanks for a great recipe, Lynn!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Simply put, my husband said this is THE BEST dessert I've ever made (and I've been baking for MANY years and have made some pretty spectacular desserts)! It certainly was one of the eastiest, as well. I used nectarines and blueberries - it was absolutely delicious. One of the things I loved about this recipe is that it makes a relatively small amount (there are only two of us) - most recipes seem to call for a 9" x 13" pan. I served it with whipped cream the first time and when we ran out of that he started adding vanilla ice cream. Either way, it's delicious. Thanks for posting, Pam!

Honey Brie Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
OMG! So easy! So delicious! Last night I had unexpected company on their way, so had exactly 30 minutes to come up with a plan to feed them something with a glass of wine (no time to go to the market). I went to my favorite recipe site - allrecipes.com - and did an 'ingredient search'. I put in 'brie and crescent rolls' and got this fantastic recipe. I did follow another reviewer who suggested putting some honey and pecans on top of the brie before wrapping up in the crescent roll, then brushed with egg, drizzled with additional honey, and added additional chopped pecans. This will become a favorite recipe for me, even when I'm not short on time. Thanks, Kim!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I first made this about two years ago, and am not sure if I rated it then. I've used the recipe several times since then, but just made it again in cupcakes, and just HAD to sit down and review it. FABULOUS!!! Thanks, Sue, for sharing. And thanks to all the reviewers who offered tips on what brands of vegan chocolate chips are available, as well as ideas for making (or buying) vegan frosting. It's very helpful to a non-vegan like me who is just trying to accomodate the tastes of vegan friends and family.

Great Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
GREAT recipe! It was so delicious, fast, easy, and I had everything on hand I needed to make it. I did use half butter and half "Can't Believe It's Not Butter", and it turned out fine. An extra thing I appreciated about finding this recipe is that it's easy to cut down (tonight there were just the two of us, so I just made four slices. Thanks for sharing, Noelle!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This salad is indeed SUPREME! But the first time I made the dressing I used fresh garlic (and perhaps too much) and it was too spicy for my "sissy husband"(his words, not mine). I liked the basic taste so much that I made it again the next day, using minced garlic in a jar, and it was FANTASTIC! The reason might be that you get an accurate measurement - 3 cloves = 1 1/2 teaspoon, rather than just guessing that your 3 cloves (of fresh) are the size the recipe intended). Thanks, Karen, for a wonderful recipe that we'll enjoy often

Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Excellant and easy! I'm sure I would give it 5 stars exactly as written, but I did make some changes, according to personal preferences. I used turkey Italian sausage and squeezed it out of the skins and browned it, so had a crumble rather than slices. I took the advice of other reviewers and added 1 teaspoon each of basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic - also 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning. I added one red bell pepper, chopped. Prepared it early in the day, then heated it in 300 degree oven for 30 minutes. Served with rice, but will try it with egg noodles next time. Thanks, Michelle.
