Cinnamon Sweet Potato Slices

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I liked the flavor, but don't do as other reviewers said and coat the potatoes in butter, they came out soft and limp. Next time, I will brush them lightly with butter then sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on the tops.

Bearnaise Sauce II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Excellent! This was so good and just like a restaurant. I did take others suggestions and cooked the sauce at 30 sec a time then took out of the microwave to stir before cooking again for 30 sec. the texture was perfect, no lumps and I minced the onion so fine in my cuisinart that you hardly noticed them. I served this sauce over asparagus and with Blue Cheese Crsted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce. My DH raved about it and he is picky! Don't be afraid to try it you won't be sorry!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
In my search to find a bread that would work for sandwiches and toast, I have tried four recipes on this site and this is it! While the others were good, Simple whole wheat bread and Fabulous Homemade bread, this was far superior in taste, texture and the ability to cut for sandwiches without crumbling. If you don't have a bread machine, you can follow this is a guideline. Combine yeast, water and a tsp sugar and let proof for 10 minutes. Meanwhile combine white flour and salt in a bowl. When yeast is proofed, add to flour and combine with 1/4 c. honey and veg. oil. Mix well. Add whole wheat flour until it pulls away from the bowl and knead well. I use my Kitchenaid. I then let rise in a glass bowl in a slightly warm oven and then formed in a loaf in a loaf pan and let rise. I cooked at 350 in a convection oven for 25 minutes. However, I did cook it once without a convection bake setting and it took an additional 15 minutes. Hope this helps.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Awesome! This is my third flour tortilla recipe to try from allrecipes. These are miles ahead of the others. First, I used butter instead of shortening due to trans fats. Second, before I let the dough rest, I separated into golf ball size rounds then let rest. My only issue is that if you want to make burrito size tortillas, golf ball size isn't large enough. After resting, I rolled out the tortilla paper thin and they were so easy to roll. Other recipes on this site were tough to roll out but this one was so easy. I then cooked them in a nonstick skillet on very high heat for not even 30 sec/side. My neighbors tried them and kept asking for more! The best, thanks!

Candy Crunch Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I followed the directions exactly and we were disappointed. The flavor is bland and tastes cheap quite honestly. If you want chocolate pudding, just eat that, this won't taste any better.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Wow! It is as good as the reviews state. I also made the orange marmalade dipping saw with horseradish, grey poupon and honey. It was just like the famous restaurant sauce and appetizer.

Jalapeno Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
I had only cream cheese and chicken on hand so searching by ingredients brought up this recipe. I am so glad I tried it. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, except that I was out of cayenne and substituted mozzarella for the monterey jack. Excellent dish!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
We really liked this recipe. My only suggestion to change anything would be not to boil the chicken, ours didn't shred well and I couldn't stand the flavor. However, my husband (who hates everything) really like these!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This marinade is awesome! The balance of sweetness to spicy was great, although we like a bit more spice so I added some cayenne pepper. We have made this once with pork chops and once with chicken kabobs. I also ran out of apple juice the second time and used orange juice. It was great both ways but I prefer with apple juice. My sauce thickened just fine too. I gave it plenty of time though.

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Followed it to a "T" with the exception of adding a leftover garlic skin? you know the part that is left in the press? We just left it to float in the vinegar. My husband loved it and so did my picky 5 yr old.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
This meatloaf has become a staple in our home. I have made it at least 10 times. I would suggest for the bread, to use a cuisinart and get it to a nice almost rice like size. The big chunks of bread the first few times were not as good. if you don't have a chopper, maybe just shred as small as you can. Make sure when you mix everything together that you really squeeze it so there are not air pockets and really form a good loaf before putting in the pan. I have also found the cooking time does need to be extended some, we don't like pink meatloaf :) I added another 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
I've tried other pumpkin breads in the past and this is the only one that my kids like better than the Starbuck's pumpkin bread. We followed others advice and used 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. It was moist and had just the right spice to it. This was added to my recipe box!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
We loved them! I too added 1 3/4 flour and 1 tsp baking soda like everyone recommended. I live above 6000 feet and they didn't deflate like most cookies do here. I also added dried cranberries and it really balanced the choc. chips nicely. My picky husband loved them and asked for more :)

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I had been making another brownie recipe on AR for over 6 months but wasn't completely happy with it even with minor tweaks. This recipe first go around is excellent. I followed the recipe with the exclusion of vanilla just because I had run out of it. I also cooked for 23 minutes at high altitude and they didn't fall either!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Wow, this stuff is amazing. I took the advice of others and used a large throw away roaster pan and sprayed with PAM. I let the sugar get heated slowly before boiling, remember if you constantly stir it you must stop at times to see if you are at the gentle rolling boil, it's easy to stir and not start the time right, then you overcook. This, however was foolproof! We couldn't get enough and it is so easy. Thanks! **Also, I forgot to mention that I cooked at 200 degrees for 45 minutes**UPDATE this is now a staple in our house. My kids love it! We always pop our own corn on the stove first to avoid the icky microwave kind. I have made this for neighbors too and they loved it as well. It always turns out great for me.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
These were really good. I took the advice of others and added some dried dill weed. I did make a mistake and processed the salmon in my cuisinart, I think it would be better flaked. I also used two eggs but I think others might be right that one would be sufficient as my husband thought they were too mushy inside. I also used a sauce for them from the Grilled Salmon Fillets with a Lemon, Taragon and Garlic sauce from this site. The sauce is fantastic and really enhances the dish.

Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I made this for a dinner party. My guests loved it. I did add cornstarch in water to thicken up the filling and also used frozen blueberries that I thawed and drained prior. I also used my own recipe pie crust. Awesome!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
WOW!!! Everyone in my family loved this bread, in fact, it was pretty much gone in about 3 hours. I have tried several breads from allrecipes but this is hands down the best. I used about 3 Tbsp fresh rosemary which I think is key! I bought a rosemary plant especially for this since so many people said it became a standby bread for them. Towards the end of baking, I also brushed the top with olive oil then sprinkled garlic and pepper on top and let cook an additonal 5-7 minutes. I forgot to try it with milk, but I'm not sure how it can get any better. I also made this from scratch using my Kitchenaid. LOVED IT. Thank you!

Pepper Steak Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
This was a great recipe. I did change it a bit. I didn't add picante sauce didn't have it. I added about a Tbsp of spiced rum for some sweetness. I used stir fry meat pre-sliced from the grocery store and the veggies I used were broccoli, red onion and garlic. I also added worsteshire sauce too. My husband loved it and he is very picky. Next time, I will double or triple the sauce because it really cooks down as it boils. We didn't have rice so we just ate this by itself and it was still really good. Can you tell I made it in a pinch? Definitely try this recipe, you will be happy you did.
