Buddy's and Bubba's Homemade Dog Food

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
This was my first attempt at making dog food at home. It is a raving success. "Buster," our 7 year old Beagle mix rescue dog devoured it on the very first serving and continues to do so. After several days on it now, I can say that it treats him and his digestive system much better than the very expensive dry commercial dog food we were feeding him. This recipe is a bit time consuming and I will check this site for other dog recipes, but I will make this one again. The only other issue is that he would not eat the kidney beans, so I'll maybe double up on the rice. This recipe made 8 pints and he gets two of them a day. Checking on the calories, this falls within the requirements for a 28 1/2 pound dog, and allows for a milk bone or two a day. I'll do some checking on the need for any additives, but like one blogger said, "Yeah, and where do they come from?" Thanks for a great recipe from me and from Buster- his tail wags constantly while "dining" now!!

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
This is the BEST fish fillet recipe I've ever done! And, as an old traditional "mackeral snapper" I have many. I scaled it back to three fillets and used seasoned bread crumbs instead of flour. Otherwise, followed the recipe exactly. I used a cookie sheet with aluminum foil sprayed with vegetable spray and it was done in 20 minutes to perfection. The coating was browned, not quite as crisp as deep fried and that's fine. The texture of the fish was perfect- moist and flavorful. Wife usually uses tarter sauce and I usually use liberal amounts of lemon juice. This needed NOTHING ELSE, just fine the way it is. This would probably be a "five" without the seasoned bread crumbs, but I think it causes it to be a "BAM!-kick it up a notch" to even higher. This goes to the very top of my fish fillet list. This is definitely "company good." Thanks Deborah- you rock!!!

Saltimbocca alla Pollo

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
This is the first recipe on this site that we were disappointed with. I followed the recipe exactly although I scaled this back to four servings. We like garlic, but this was waaaay too garlicky for us. There was also way too much sage. I had not used proscuitto before and I lightly salted in the two places in the recipe. It was way to salty. If I were to make this again, I would cut back on the garlic, sage, salt and Prosciutto. At the cost of the prosciutto over a dollar an ounce, it is unlikely I would do this again. Wife said to go back to the chicken cordon bleu with the ham, cheese and seasoning. Sorry.

Smoked Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
This is a very good chowder and I'm always looking for seafood chowders. I halved the recipe and still ended up with a 5 quart dutch oven quite full. I didn't have any fish stock, so instead I used two cans of chicken broth. The only other change I made was that I backed way off on the pepper and the dill, only a teaspoon each. (To each his own.) This turned out very well, very rich full bodied flavor and very satisfying. The flavors of the bacon, veggies and salmon all came through together without needing so much spice, otherwise I would have given it a 5. I will put this in the rotation and the only change I would make would be to use the fish stock. Wife was happy and said to put it in the "do again" file. Thanks for the recipe and thanks for THE ABSOLUTE BEST cooking website.

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
I am a born and raised what some people call a "mackeral snapper" and I grew up having to eat non-meat dishes EVERY Friday and I wasn't always thrilled about it. Where in the world was something like this back then? (Sorry Mom, up in the Great Kitchen.) This is delicious!! And, it's very easy to make. I went by the recipe, except I doubled the cheese. (Wife is a cheese freak.) I did three tilapia fillets that weighed in at just over a pound all total. But, I used my gas grill at 500 degrees. I used a 9 X 12 pan with aluminum foil sprayed lightly with vegetable spray. The fish turned out perfect after 12 minutes...moist but not overdone. I put a similar pan next to it with frozen Orida french fries. Next time I will sprinkle some dried dill weed on the fish, just because I always use dill in my fish batter. I may try catfish fillets next time. They are cheaper, especially if I do some good at the lake, and we like them. Wife who grew the same way raved about this. Thanks for the recipe and thanks again for such a great website!!!

Grilled Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
I've always had a problem getting the taters done when the rest of the bbq was done, or vice-versa. NOT ANY MORE!!!This is a wonderful and very tasty recipe and I'll use it probably exclusive when bbq'ing. I followed it exactly, except I didn't have fresh fresh parsely, so I just sprinkled dried parsely over it. The other thing- I used a disposable 11 3/4 X 9 3/8 X 1 1/2 inch Lasagna pan and it worked great, just covered it tightly with aluminum foil. For the three of us, there was plenty left over that went nicely the next morning, nuked, with our eggs and bacon....Yummy. Thanks Kelly and much thanks to Allrecipes for a "drop dead good" website.

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Really great recipe!! I used flavored bread crumbs and skipped the Italian seasoning. Next time, however, I'll use more sauce. We like to drench things in sauce. This is the first time I've made my own meatballs. I'll never buy them at the store again. My visiting college student niece said, "If Subway could make their meatballs like this, I'd eat there every day." I used French bread and served open-faced. Thanks so much!!

Quick Hoppin' John Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Too bad the ratings only to 5!! I'm not from the South and I've never had this soup before. It's a welcome change and easy to prepare. I pretty much followed the recipe, but added two stalks of celery,diced and one medium onion, chopped, and cooked them in with the saugage as a reviewed suggested. I used a 16 oz frozen pkg of black eyed peas, thawed, because we like fresh or frozen veggies much better than canned. I gave the peas about a 20 minute head start in the broth and water. I also added about a cup of thinly diced cooked ham, per a reviewer. Served with made-from-scratch cornbread. Yum!! This goes into the rotation file, for sure!!

Turkey Soup with Slickers

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
Christine,I can't wait to use this recipe. The turkey is still thawing in the fridge and I'm already looking forward to the carcass soup. So far, I've just been "winging it" every year. But, please bear with this old man...I didn't see the noodles listed and I really wanta do this one!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!! (I'll rate this now only because it's required, but I doubt I'll need to change it.)

Quick and Easy Ham with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This is easy and delicious. I gave it 4 stars only because it is a bit sweet and we would fix it only occasionally. We love ham. The only variation is that I coated both sides of the ham with spicy brown mustard. Next time I'll use fresh sweet potatoes to cut down on the sugar. Thanks.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
Like everyone else, I've cooked chicken a million different ways. (Slight eggageration, maybe.) But, this is the best "fried" chicken ever!!! I'll never go back to the pan fried again. I cooked it per the recipe, except I doubled the recipe and used a package of six leg quarters. I separated the legs and thighs and had to use two pans. (Quite reasonable at $.69/lb.) The coating was as if it was fried and had a beautiful golden/brownish color. My octogenarian father raved about it as soon as it hit the table. Wife made excellent gravy..I'm good with gravy only out of a jar. The flavor was great!! This is now my new staple. Thanks Candy!!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
This is a great recipe! I gave it 5 stars, even though this is the first time I've done twice baked potatoes. I've had them many times from the store freezer and other places and there is no comparison. I followed the recipe exactly and used Plumrose Smokey Maple Bacon..Yum. My wife gave this a "9" and she refuses to give anything I cook a "10"....says it's not good for my ego. Almost every recipe is just a beginning point and this one is no exception. Next time I'll try to sneak in some garlic, but that's just me. Thanks!!!!

Wisconsin Bratwurst

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
This is by far the best brats we've ever had, and this is a German household.(My wife is actually Irish, but very German in the kitchen.) We skipped the buns, just served with the cooked onions piled on high,along with yellow mustard. Served along with Allrecipes "Authentic German Potato Salad" and Aunt Nellie's red cabbage. I got rave reviews from spouse and guests. They said this was more authentic than at German restaurants.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
I am German, 100%. I have been eating German Potato Salad almost all my many, many years. I've cooked many German Potato salads myself. I cooked this one today and my spouse and guests raved about it. We all agree it is better than what is served in our authentic German restaurants/German societies. I also cooked "Wisconsin Bratwurst" from Allrecipes. Opened up a jar of Aunt Nellie's red cabbage to go along with all this. What a feast!!!Vundabar!!!
