Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This was very yummy and my husband said it was just like his mom used to make. I used the entire 16oz box of macaroni and added 1/2 teaspoon of pepper to the cheese mixture. I also upped the breadcrumbs to 3/4 cup as we both like the crunchy topping. I think next time I'll add more cheese to the top and maybe some garlic salt.

Stir Fried Snow Peas and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Delicious!!!! I upped the teriyaki sauce to 3 tablespoons and added about an 1/8 teaspoon of pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Gave it a bit more flavor since some of the reviewers thought it was bland. Oh, and I also added about a 1/2 cup of pineapple, it went well with the teriyaki. I served this as a side dish with grilled steaks. Yummy!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
This was delicious! We love Indian especially Tikka Masala but in Chicago our favorite restaurant is soooo expensive. I think this will be our new go to when we are craving Indian. The only changes I made was that I used 2 tablespoons of butter instead of ghee, light cream instead of whipping cream (to cut the fat content), upped the cayenne to 1 1/2 teaspoons for more of a kick, 1/4 teaspoon sugar (next time I will omit completely), added 3 small cubed potatoes towards the end of simmering (I cooked them in the microwave first). My husband loves Vindaloo, that's where I got the idea for the potatoes and they were delicious in the sauce. I served it over organic brown basamati rice. My husband was impressed I can cook such delicious Indian food! Quick, easy, and I will definitely make again! We are having the leftovers tonight for dinner, I can't wait!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
This is a delicious and easy recipe! I left out the chili beans, beer, and tomato sauce because I didn't have any, I added a cup of chicken broth. I also used frozen chicken breasts. I was worried there wouldn't be enough broth but it turned out perfect. Both my husband and I weren't sure if it was soup or chili, but it was hearty and spicy...perfect for a cold winter day. I loved the Bill Echols taco spice blend, hot and simple to make. I served this with shredded Monterey Jack cheese and crackers. I will definitely make again!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
Very good! It made 11 generous sized muffins. I was worried that there was too much topping, but it melted into the muffins well. I made it as directed and will definitely make again.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
Made this this evening in my bread maker and did it exactly as written. (I noticed in the reviews many just put it in the oven.) It turned out great and my picky husband loved it too. Very soft and flavorful! I put it in my bread maker at the 1 1/2 lb loaf with a medium crust. PERFECT! And I will definitely make again!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
Made this tonight and it was delicious! I think this will be my go to chicken soup recipe! Only changes I made was I omitted the veggie broth and celery, but only because I didn't have any and i didn't want to make a trip to the store. I served it with Jos Rosemary Bread from this site and it was a fabulous dinner for this cold, windy and snowy night.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I have used this recipe many many times. And it's the BEST. If you're looking for a truly homemade yummy pancake this is the one. Sometime I add a little more milk or add blueberries, but otherwise it's perfect as written. One time I made it and realized I didn't have any eggs so I substituted 1 1/2 mashed bananas. It turned out yummy and the banana added a delicious sweetness. This recipe will be a classic in this house for a very long time. Yum!

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
These are delicious and have become a staple at our holiday dinner table. I usually cook them longer than the 3-5 minutes as stated in the recipe. Cooking them longer really helps the flavor to set in. Yum!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
DELICIOUS SOUP! I made this with a cup of left over ham from Easter. And lets just say I should have doubled the recipe. My husband had 2 big bowls for dinner, and he rarely has seconds of anything. I also added a cup of diced carrots and only used 1 tablespoon of bouillon. I omitted the salt but next time I'll add it. I think this would even be good with chicken or adapted for the crockpot. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe and I can't wait to make it again. And for people who had issues with the milk mixture, you need to make it slowly over low to medium-low heat.

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Excellent recipe!!!!! Makes tasty and moist banana bread. I especially like it because it only calls for 2 bananas, I never seem to have 3 ripe ones for some reason. Only change I made was I used 1/2 cup light vanilla yogurt instead of buttermilk. It makes it even more moist (and I never have buttermilk on hand). Next time ill try applesauce instead of oil like others have suggested.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Just a side note: I used this recipe as muffins and it made just over 2 dozen. I baked them at 350 for about 27 minutes. Perfect!!!

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
I made this as written except substituted boullion for broth and corn for the peas. It was good, my husband said he could eat it everyday. But my only thing is that I think baking it all together is pointless. I think the sauce could just be made on the stove, then biscuits in the oven and then sauce just poured over the biscuits. It would save the step of putting it all in a baking dish and baking it. I hate washing those big casserole dishes.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
Thought this was the base for a very good sauce. I used tomato sauce instead of tomatoes since all the reviews stated that the chunks were gross. Omitted the sugar and oregano, I think the basil added enough sweetness. I also added 2 small cooked diced chicken breasts and 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper although more could have been added. I poured it over rigatoni. Delicious! I know I altered the recipe quite a bit, but it's a good starting point to an even better sauce. I also think a few tablespoons vodka (making a vodka sauce) would be delicious! And use fat free half and half or regular whipping cream, heavy cream has way too much fat.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Delicious! Very moist, airy and tasty. I was skeptical since most breads require yeast. I did make a few small changes. I omitted the buttermilk and used 1/2 cup low fat vanilla yogurt and 1/2 cup 2% milk. (Many reviews stated the bread was dry, and I think mine wasn't because of the yogurt.) I also let it sit for about 15 mins before baking to let the ingredients rest (think that's why mine was airy and not too dense). I baked it at 350 for 55 mins. Came out perfect! Next time I might even used less sugar. (I was nicely sweet but would be good less sweet too.)

Chicken Riggies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
Of all the Riggie recipes on Allecipes this one is the closest to the traditional NY recipe. My husband is from Mohawk, NY, near Utica, and this is one of his favorite all time meals. I did make a few changes so that it was more like his sisters recipe. For the peppers I used 3 jalapenos, 1 habanero pepper, and 3 teaspoons of Asian chili garlic sauce (for all of you who thought this needed a kick you should try adding the chili garlic sauce, it makes any dish pop!). I also added a small can of black olives, a small can of mushrooms (you could use fresh), and I increased the the cream to 1 cup (to save calories you could use milk). The key to this recipe is letting it simmer before adding the rigatoni and cream. Just let everything else simmer on low covered in the pan for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. This makes everything soft and flavorful. Them after an hour or so add the cream, let simmer for 10 minuets. Then cook your rigatoni. Then add the sauce to the cooked rigatoni. Stir well and serve. It's even better the next day after the sauce has absorbed into the rigatoni. Delicious! My Upstate New York Husband loved it!

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
Very good goulash! I only changed a few details and I decided to half the recipe. I omitted the salt since others said it was too salty; I used 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce; and upped the macaroni to 1 1/2 cups. It came out great and my husband said "Goulash....Good!", which is quite a compliment.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
Very good! I made this because I didn't have much in the house but I did have about 1 1/4lb of ground beef...so meatloaf it is. Only changes I made was that I sautéed the onion with some garlic, I got that idea from Ina Garten. I really liked the topping so next time I think I'd double that. Some reviews said it was too sweet but I thought it complimented the meat nicely. I served it with mashed potatoes, of course. I'm looking forward to the leftovers tonight! This will probably become my go to recipe! Thanks! Update: I make this recipe all the time. But recently tried it as meatloaf muffins, and it was great. Just placed the ingredients in a muffin pan, to make individual servings. 450 degrees for 20 mins and Perfect.
