Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
I read a LOT of reviews and made adjustments as many suggested. They came out great. After I was all done, I put them on a cookie sheet and put in a 200 oven for 1-1.5hrs to crisp up so they'd "break," also suggested by others.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
4 stars as written. 5 stars with these hints: triple the garlic & use large cloves, use only 3 T olive oil, add two bay leaves, and start with the most delicious jarred tomatoes - Del Monte Garden Select Petite Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE MARINARA WITH MY CHANGES! We mmm and ooh throughout each bite, every time we make it. Fresh parsley is a must. Double the recipe when you make it!

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
This is a cross between regular cornbread and sweet corn cakes, leaning more toward corn cakes which are a favorite of mine. Loved this very much! A winner with my whole family!

Banana Loaf Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I was so surprised to find this recipe on the site. I've been making it since I was a teenager - always a family favorite. My teenagers love it. Great for snacking on, having with tea or coffee, bringing to brunches, it travels well in the car and always, always, always stays moist. 1 small banana is all you need and it turns out perfect every time. Glad to see someone post this valued family favorite!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I've made this lots and we just love it! I double the mozzarella (a must) use regular canned artichoke hearts (not marinated), use tomato basil feta if available, and use dried rosemary chopped finely (instead of fresh). I've not had a problem with mushy cooked lasagne noodles like some others have experienced. I guess the broth could be cut down, but you can just use a slotted spoon when assembling to minimize runniness. As a rule, lasagne needs time to sit (at least 10 minutes) before serving, so that helps. One thing that I think is VERY important is your choice of marinara. I will not ever use store marinara sauce (not even Rao's!) since finding the most fresh and delicious recipe on allrecipes called Best Marinara Sauce Yet. Choose your marinara wisely and you will just love this recipe, or any other that calls for marinara as part of it.

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
I second SQUEAKYCHU's rating to a T! These cookies were wonderful! Are you looking for another great recipe for fresh figs? Use Diane's "Figs with Goat Cheese, Pecans and Bacon" (on this site), but read my review for a great tip!

BBQ Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
I have learned to read as many reviews as possible before I try a recipe, and so I opted for the ease of THEFAMILYCHEF1's changes, but I added an extra 1/2 hour to the first round of cooking (because of others' comments) and I kept the meat covered at all times. It came out perfect, perfect, perfect. As with any recipe calling for BBQ sauce, be very picky about the sauce you choose. It'll make or break the dish. I will make this over and over again. Inexpensive meat, , expensive taste, and so incredibly easy. YUM, YUM, YUM.

Texas Stuffed Grilled Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
We just loved these! We made them much, much smaller maybe totaling 1/3 pound of beef per burger and of course cooked them for a lot less time because they were thinner. Even at 1/3 pound total they were plenty big! You can cut the filling ingredients in half and still have enough. I used the scaling function and changed it to 2 servings and that fed my family of 5 with leftovers.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I just love roasted vegetables, and this recipe didn't disappoint me. Remember though, as with all recipes that call for fresh herbs, if you plan to used dried then halve the amount! This can definitely be added to with all kinds of vegetables, but I really loved the butternut squash and sweet potatoes! If you plan to add more delicate veggies, then I would cook the ingreds in this dish for 10 minutes alone before adding "softer" veggies. Really, really good! It's a great winter side dish!

Figs with Goat Cheese, Pecans and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
Deeeeelicious. My neighbor gave us fresh figs off his tree and I searched All Recipes to find a recipe to use them. I struck gold with this!! I read all the reviews and decided to try 2 versions. 1 with just goat cheese, the other with a combo goat/ricotta. Stick with just goat! The best. Also I REALLY struggled with cooking the bacon all the way through without demolishing the figs in the cooking process. So I tried pre-cooking the bacon in the micro first, but when wrapped around the figs and broiled the bacon ended up burning. The best solution was to just make a little pile of proscuitto on top of the figs!! No wrapping, no toothpicks, lower fat and not greasy, but very similar taste! I can't wait until next year's fig crop is ripe... and neither can my neighbor! He loved 'em as much as we did!!

Pesto Pita Appetizers

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
YUMMY! I had pita bread, but when I opened the package, it was moldy! Ick. Not wanting to go to the store AGAIN, I instead used flour tortillas and just reduced the baking time to 8 mins. Perfect! This was a favorite with my whole family and guests out of the array of appetizers I had out on football game day! Thanks! So easy too!!
