Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2000
I have been making this recipe now for over a year and I absolutely love it! I always make it the day before (it's one of those things that's better the second day). Also, my husband put hot peppers on his sandwich tonight with it and said it was a perfect compliment to the meat. I don't like hot peppers, but if you do, he recommends trying it.

Tuna Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2000
The "cook time" at the top needs to be changed - it's not 10 minutes, but besides that, this recipes was very good. Even my picky 3 1/2 year old ate it without questions (that's a miracle). I was afraid to overstuff the rolls with the mixture, but next time I'm definitely going to add more of the mixture to the inside. Great recipe.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: May 24, 2001
Actually, I was pressed for time so I made this in my crockpot. I made rice when I got home from work to serve with it. My family loved it! My picky 4 year old wanted 3rd's! My husband definitely wants me to make this again.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2001
I've been making this dip since 2003 and the first party I took it to back then, I got a few comments but nothing like I expected. I must've been with a bunch of snobs because lately (and I mean over the past 2 years) I've had nothing but rave reviews about this dip. I get requests to bring it to parties and to my poker nights. I use the already cooked Oscar Mayer bacon and nuke each sheet for 45 seconds to crisp it up. I also add a little shredded lettuce so that it's a true B "L" T. I rated this 4 stars back then, but it truly is worthy of 5. I also serve it in a bread bowl for convenience and appearance.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: May 30, 2002
It doesn't matter what I think about this recipe...what matters is that my husband said it was better than his mother's beef stew!!! HA! (I did like it though).

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
Tasted good, but I had trouble keeping the cheese inside the meatloaf (actually, anything I've cooked with cheese inside, the cheese always oozes out).

Butterscotch Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2002
I really had my hopes up for this recipe. This recipe took so much time to prepare for. The cookies turned out "cakey" and I like them to turn out more crunchy. However, my husband took them to work and they scarfed them down so I guess they weren't too bad (but not what I expected).

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2002
My ex-husband has always said that you can never make "restaurant quality" ribs at home because the restaurants must use a really good quality meat, plus their grills are better, etc., etc., etc. Well, that gave me a challenge to find the perfect rib recipe. THIS IS IT!! I got total enjoyment watching him and my daughter eat these ribs down to the bone. This is definitely a keeper and I won't make ribs any other way.

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2002
This is a great cake. I took the advice of a previous review and used ginger instead of nutmeg. Also, it did take a little longer than an hour and 10 minutes to bake. I added 5 additional minutes and it was perfect. Keep checking it every few minutes because if the cake dries out, the whole thing will be ruined. The taste is great! I wasn't sure it would turn out at first because when I "poured" it into the bundt pan, it was SO thick. But, it turned out really, really, good.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2002
I didn't particularly like the zing that the lemon gave to these potatoes (but I'm not much of a lemon fan either so that may be why). Plus, they needed to cook longer - a lot of them were too undercooked. I'll probably try this one again, but leave out the lemon and add more garlic.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2002
Definitely easy to make, but I didn't think it was as "amazing" as people were saying. It was actually dry. Probably won't make it again.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2002
I didn't like this recipe at all. Other people at the Thanksgiving table liked it, but for some reason, I didn't. I probably won't make it again, but for those who do, I'd use fresh green beans instead of canned.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
I have been making this shrimp recipe for 6 years now and it really is, by far, the best shrimp recipe ever! I always ADD CILANTRO! Thanks for the tip regarding the tomato paste (I too hate wasting it).

Bellyful of Barbecued Bananas

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
This dessert is awesome! I've been making this for years now and I continue to get rave reviews on it. I always make it in a pan and the goo that forms in the pan, I just pour over the bananas and ice cream as a topping! It's perfect. I'm not sure why other reviews commented that it was messy. I used granulated brown sugar - maybe that made the difference - but I didn't think it was messy at all.

Johnny's Spice Rub

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2003
This was a very good rub. I used it on a whole chicken that I put on my rotisserie. It gave the chicken a really good taste. I want to try it on some steaks next to see if it's just as good.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 6, 2003
These were pretty good burgers. Not dry or anything and not too salty tasting. I don't think my husband would've been able to tell that it was turkey and not beef if I didn't tell him. I didn't give it five stars because it's not one of those "Oh my God, I love this" type recipe - but nothing bad about it.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: May 22, 2003
Considering all the rave reviews, this recipe didn't "do it" for me. It was pretty much as bland as the ingredients (bread crumbs and parmesan??? not very exciting). Anyway, you definitely need to pound the chicken and at least double the amount of garlic. I'd maybe have given it 4 stars if I had doubled the garlic and if it would've given it more flavor. Thank goodness I added salt and pepper to those bread crumbs.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 28, 2003
I've been making these muffins for years now, since they first debut on All Recipes. They are, by far, the best. BUT, you need to double the amount of blueberries! I'm not really a big fan of muffins because they're usually dry. Not these! And actually two or three days pass and they're still moist.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2003
These potatoes are REALLY good. I am not a big fan of sour cream, but it didn't really bother me in these potatoes. One word of caution - there are a lot of steps involved with this recipe so it's not something to make if you are pressed for time. I'll definitely be making these again.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
I made this salad over the 4th of July weekend. Non-salad eaters were eating it!! I didn't change a thing. It's perfect the way it is. A nice change from traditional garden salads.
