Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
My husband had never had sloppy joes from scratch and I had never had sloppy joes PERIOD. We both enjoyed the meal very much and the kids loved it, too! My husband still likes the canned kind better, but he gave this recipe his seal of approval as well. :) This freezes and reheats very well.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I used a Pillsbury roll-out pie crust (the kind in the long red box) and frozen mixed vegetables for soup, added some oregano, and used 1 1/2 cans of cream of celery soup rather than 1/2 can celery + 1 can potato. As other reviewers said, the thyme was a bit much, but not enough to keep my family from pigging out on this pot pie! It was incredibly delicious. My husband isn't normally a fan of chicken or mixed veggies but he raved about this pie. My four year old son, who has shunned every single chicken pot pie anyone has ever given him, said, "Mmmmm, this is yummy, Mommy!" I doubled this recipe and froze 1/2 of the chicken/veggie mixture so when I want to make it again, all I have to do is thaw it and put it in a pie crust to bake. I can't wait to have it again, and I think I'll make this next time I bring a meal to someone.

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

This is a favorite among the young children in my house. It's great along with some fresh fruit on the side.

Golden Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I looked through other reader reviews and made some changes to this recipe: - no foil in the pan (because I was out of foil...there was no other reason for that) - poured some frozen mixed veggies as well as some frozen southern-style hash browns in the baking dish before putting in the chicken - added a bit of chicken broth to the stuffing to moisten it up - seasoned the chicken with paprika, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder - baked about 15 minutes longer than indicated because the chicken was still partially frozen when I put it in the oven It turned out great. The chicken was tender and juicy, and the stuffing gave it a nice crunch in contrast. I think the veggies were a good idea and the seasonings pulled everything together nicely. My husband commented that he liked it, and my son, who said he didn't want the chicken "because it has brown things on it," ended up gobbling it down. I had seconds. Okay, I had thirds. And then I ate what my daughter didn't finish. It was really good!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I have used this recipe more times than I can count, and it is a huge hit every time. I've prepared it for many guests and everyone who tastes it raves about how delicious it is! I love to make this recipe and freeze it. You can freeze the patties and gravy together in one Ziploc bag, or put them in seperate bags and containers, then reheat them in a large frying pan over medium heat. Delicious.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I made this as an appetizer for a Girl's Night Out and it was a huge hit! I made a ton of salsa and chips, but came home with a few scrapings at the bottom of the bowl. I used orange preserves and premixed cinnamon sugar. People have requested that I make this again.

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This gravy turned out beautifully! This Thanksgiving, we realized at the last minute that we had forgotten to buy jarred gravy, so I quickly found this recipe and whipped it up with moments to spare. It was so easy to make, and everyone raved.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This recipe also works very well with boneless pork chops. Make it the same way, just with a different kind of meat. I hate mayonnaise, too, but the taste is very subtle and the meal turns out very nicely.

Cajun Corn and Bacon Maque Choux

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Turned out great with no modifactions. If/when I make this again I'll dice the onions rather than slice them for the sake of consistency and to make it easier to eat. It went over really well at a covered dish luncheon.

Meringue Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
These are AWESOME!!! I would give them a higher rating if I could. They were so easy to make, despite that I have only made meringue once or twice in my life. I didn't find it time-consuming at all - the prep was simple, and the long part was the bake time which requires no active work. The mushrooms look great, and as a plus, they are absolutely delicious...I had to make myself stop snacking on them so I could use them for my buche de noel. :) Thank you so much for this excellent recipe.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
These were INCREDIBLE! This was the first time I've ever attempted to make scones, so I followed the recipe as written, with the exception that I drizzled them with a powdered sugar and water glaze when I was finished. Putting the butter out at room temperature until it was slightly softened made it easier to cut it in with knives (I don't have a pastry blender). I can't wait to make these again with various fruits or chocolate, they were absolutely delicious and the whole family loved them.

Ultimate Party Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Don't let the short and somewhat odd ingredient list fool you: These really are the ULTIMATE party meatballs. We have had these at several different parties now, and each time, our guests look a little embarrassed and apologize for stuffing themselves with so many meatballs. They are incredible!

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
WE HAVE A WINNER!!! I am infamous for being really bad at baking cookies. I am usually a good cook but my cookies always come out thin and feel like bricks. Finally, finally, FINALLY I have come across a recipe that is so perfect that even I can make *delicious* and perfectly-formed cookies out of it. I made a batch yesterday and they're all completely gone, so I'm doing another one today. Excellent!!!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I have paid a lot of money at gourmet bakeries to buy cookies that are right on a par with these. I am notoriously bad at baking cookies, but these turned out perfectly! I frosted about half of them with Kathy Brandt's Sugar Cookie Frosting (on AllRecipes.com) and left the other half plain. Both kinds were big hits with everyone. I had a problem that some other reviewers mentioned...once the dough was introduced to room temperature after overnight refrigeration, it started to get very sticky and hard to work with after a few minutes. Solutions: Put it back in the fridge while you're waiting to free up cookie sheets, or measure out dough with a spoon, roll it into a ball, and flatten it on the cookie sheet. I did the latter and they turned out great. Try dying half the dough with food coloring and creating a marble cookie - very fun!

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I am adding this recipe to my regular circulation. I thought it was delicious. I had to make a few adjustments: I omitted Worcestershire sauce to make it vegetarian, I omitted tomatoes because my son has an allergy, and I omitted curry because I didn't have any. I thought the tomatoes would have been a nice touch but even without them, this soup was outstanding, and had the perfect consistency. I served it alongside grilled cheese sandwiches but really, the soup was hearty enough to eat by itself.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
I don't care for spaghetti, but my husband and kids love it so I make it every once in a while. Now that I have found this recipe, I might do it every week. It is preposterously good!!! Like others, I was hesitant to cook the meatballs in the sauce, but I'm glad I followed the recipe as written. When my husband got home and tasted a meatball, he was raving about how delicious it was: evenly cooked, not falling apart, and restaurant-quality (a big compliment coming from him!).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
These are almost unbearably delicious! I have never made muffins from scratch before and I'm sure I made a few mistakes, but the muffins still came out wonderfully. My husband raved about them and it was hard to convince my kids that they should only eat one. I would love to test this with bananas and nuts or other fillings, but I doubt I'll ever try another base recipe!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I was floored by this chicken. WHY was it so good?!? Even the white meat was incredibly moist and delicious. I have never seen my kids vacuum up chicken so quickly; one of them didn't even like chicken until I put this on their plate! I didn't have celery and I used butter instead of margarine. My chicken was 7# and of course I can't remember how long it took to cook, I just set the timer for 2 hours and then checked the temp until it was done. I served with stuffing w/ apples and onions and it was a huge hit. Thank you!!!

Seven Layer Dip I

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Wow, AMAZING!!! This was a HUGE hit at a recent barbecue. I am not a big fan of this type of food, but I thoroughly enjoyed this! Having had it both ways, I agree that it is better at room temperature (and it's easier to scoop when it's not cold). The guacamole added such a fresh taste to this dish. I will definitely make this again, this recipe is a keeper.

Sweet and Sour Drumettes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This meal is going to be part of my regular rotation. I could not believe that such a short recipe yielded such an AMAZING meal! I doubled the recipe so I could use it for chicken drumsticks instead of drumettes. In the future I will turn the chicken halfway through cooking to make sure it is completely covered in the delicious sauce. It was a big hit with my children, ages 18 months through 9 years - my normally picky daughter asked for more, as did my toddler.
