Pigs in a Blanket

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I use crescent rolls cut in half to two smaller triangles. I then slather hot mustard on them, then roll up Lil' Smokies. I sometimes use an egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on the top before baking. A sure hit every time.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Had to make this three times, one right after another on the same day. I set the first one out. My 10-year-old son ate 3/4 of it with homemade bean soup. Then I made another one. That was quickly cleaned off by two little kids and a hungry husband. I then made a third -- and we're holding steady on that one. Am going to the store to get more packets of yeast. My Hungarian husband said this is the best bread he has had in the US. We may get tired of it one day, but it sure is delicious! Used rapid rise yeast and real butter. Also baked it in a Pampered Chef bread form. Don't know if makes a difference, but the whole texture was simply divine!

Kolachky

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Darn tasty! Used cherry pie filling in some, poppy seed filling in others. Sifted powdered sugar over the top at the end. Served to Slovaks and Hungarians who loved this recipe. I'm not convinced that it is the "real deal" as this is the same cream cheese/butter/flour recipe I use for mini quiches. Even so, this is sure tasty. Not quite the same taste as in Slovakia and Hungary, but tasty enough for no one to mind. Thanks for sharing!

Momma's Wine Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Delicious! Used ultra moist yellow cake mix, as someone suggested. Also cut down the nutmeg to 3/4 teaspoon and 1/4-1/2 cinnamon. Also used Pam first in Bundt pan, then buttered it and dusted pan with cinnamon sugar. Used Chardonnay from a box -- so not the best quality, but it was FABULOUS. Will definitely make again! Later review: I've made this cake about a half dozen times since first trying it in late December. I have come across with a wonderful change. I had pecan chips (the really fine, almost powdered ones). I mixed those with cinnamon sugar. Coated the inside of the Bundt pan with butter, then dusted the pan with the cinnamon sugar/pecan mix. This gives the cake such a wonderful crunchy coating, with the divine moist cake inside. Hey, definitely worth a 15 star rating, if possible!

Grandma Irena's Palacsinta (Hungarian Crepes)

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
In Budapest, we use Nesquik as a filler as well as various jams. The palacsinta recipe can be adapted to make savory meals as well. Another popular one in Hungary is Hortobagyi Palacsinta, a savory pancake stuffed with cooked seasoned chicken chopped fine, then rolled and covered in a paprka/sour cream sauce. The art and the versatility of the palacsinta is a lasting legacy from Hungarian kitchen! Thanks to contributor for helping spread the word! This recipe can be made as is or tweaked to unlimited variations!

Creamy Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Tasty, tasty! Used Durkee's fried onions instead of crackers. Cooked rice in chicken broth. Added cooked mixed vegetables. Chopped cooked chicken rather than shredded it. Mixed shredded colby jack and cheddar cheeses in with the cheese sauce. Only had about one cup of sour cream and it still worked out well. My son doesn't eat meat, so made a portion for him without meat in one tray. A guest doesn't eat onions, so put the crunchy onion topping only on part of it. Easy to adapt for nearly all picky eaters at the same table! Will definitely make again! Thanks!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Yum delish. The cheese sauce inside is fabulous. I cooked the meat in the Red Enchilada sauce from this site. Also dipped the tortillas in hot oil for 30 seconds, then in the enchilada sauce. When the tortillas fell apart, I abandoned the idea of beautiful rolled enchiladas and made chiliquilas instead. Hey, not a bad trade off! Perfect blend of spicy/cheese/creamy. This was FABULOUS! Better than any other enchilada recipe I've made or made up in the past 30 years. Did add about 1/2 cup of Velveeta to the sauce and quite a bit more cheese. Made a cheese only for my vegetarian son, strewing the layers with cheese. Great, great, great.

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Made it with a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old. They thought they were hot stuff being able to pour the liquids into the punch bowl. They loved everything about this punch and asked for it the next day. For me? Not the best punch I've ever had.. not by a long shot. Used this recipe exactly, then tried tweaking it in terms of the juice concentrations to cut the sweetness. My husband took a swig of the original recipe and said it was far too sweet. On Day Two, though, I mixed the juices and put in the fridge so that the kids can add their own soda. That helped a lot. After reading the rave reviews here, am wondering if the brand of ginger ale matters. I used a store brand which may have been sweeter than say, Canada Dry. I'll keep trying this for the sake of the kids. OK, revised this upward. Way upward. It is now the definite favorite in our house without any soda. The juices blend well together and we have a pitcher in the fridge 24/7. I did find that the best "fizz" is cranberry Sierra Mist which may only be out for the holidays. Also tried it last night with sparking apple juice and that was tasty as well.

Dairy Free Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
I have been making this for forty years, but with dairy! It is delicious! These are my changes: I always add a couple of dashes of cinnamon to the batter for a better color and zip. I add more sugar because I like a sweeter dough. We love the streusel topping, so I always make way more of that and also put walnuts or pecans in. Finally, these are GREAT as mini-muffins or regular muffins. They look spectacular but only take a couple of minutes to make.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
For always and forever, this is going to be THE chocolate chip cookie recipe around here. Perfect in every way. Didn't change the recipe. Only suggestion is that recipe needs to be doubled. These cookies flew off the plates and everyone was looking for more within one hour after I finished baking.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Wow! Used less Velveeta and threw in some heaping handfuls of shredded cheddar and Monterey jack. Also used powdered chicken bouillon instead of broth. I'm a soup person and this is one of the best soups I've ever made in my life. What a keeper! Nephew said it tastes like Outback.

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I had chicken rice that I had left over from the night before. (White rice cooked in chicken soup broth and a box of Rice-r-Roni chicken rice mixed in for color/flavor). Had broccoli, one can of mushroom soup, and Velveeta, butter, and onions. No celery. Went looking for a recipe and found this one. What a great find! The rice mixture from the night before had a lot of pleasant spices in it, so didn't season it more than pepper. I certainly reduced the Velveeta as my version didn't look anywhere near as cheesey as the pic on this one. (I eyeball ingredients when I cook, not follow recipes to a "T"). Now the secret ingredient made all the difference in the world! I sprinkled a thin layer of Durkee's fried onions on the top for flavor/texture. Served this at Easter. 15 guests and family members went NUTS for this recipe and I've made it several times since then on request from family members and guests. Remember to use the recipe as a foundation, then go from there. No need to complain about it being bland or whatever else. Kick it up with your own variations! Great recipe for that! Five stars for sure!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I cheated with delicious consequences. Didn't have vanilla, but did have a box of vanilla pudding mix! Made exactly as directly, but sprinkled the small box of pudding into the creamy mixture. I will never ever make it another way. Simply divine! Doubled the recipe, thank goodness! Thanks for the recipe!

Creamy Pineapple Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Easy schmeasy! I used pineapple jello as I was in a rush at the supermarket and thought I bought lemon. Even so, yummy! I bet with the lemon there would be an added tartness to it. My son, who adamantly does not like cottage cheese, loved this. Reminds me of a recipe my mom used to make a long time ago. Thanks for sharing!

Bisquick® Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This has been a family favorite for 40 years or more! I have a couple of adaptations, though: Add a dash or two of cinnamon in the cake part. It improves the taste and color. Add a tablespoon or two more of sugar in the cake part for added sweetness. WE LOVE THE STREUSEL TOPPING! So I double the recipe for the topping. Also include nuts (walnut or pecans). Which brings me to the next point: Not everyone likes nuts, so I bake these as either regular muffins or mini-muffins. Half the batch is made without nuts in the topping. The other half has nuts as indicated by a piece of nut clearly showing on top. The muffins/mini-muffins work spectacularly well with this recipe. They are cute as buttons and everyone can choose their preferred style.

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
FABULOUS! Or at least the idea was! I'm a pretty lazy cook, so I used leftover mashed potatoes (day old). First sauteed a whole onion in one stick of real butter, then dumped it in with mashed potatoes, two large spoonfuls of sour cream, three heaping handfuls of grated cheese (I used cheddar), and a couple of dashes of seasoned salt. Then did the noodle/potato mix/noodle layering. Did not use bacon or garlic this time around and may never do so. Oh my goodness, this is divine. Five stars just for giving me the inspiration! Foolproof for nearly every cook!

Easy Never Forgotten Guacamole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This is nearly exactly like our family recipe we have been using for decades. We call the cream cheese "Guac Extender" as it really helps bulk up the guacamole, even with few or less than perfect consistency avocados. I grate a bit of onion into mine and also crush a clove of garlic, rather than use garlic salt. Put a dash of chili powder in and voila! It is fabulous! We have people come visit sometimes just so that they can get some of this guac. Am glad someone shared it here on this site. It is definitely a keeper and highly recommended.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Being the party pooper here and giving it only 4 stars. After reading the breathless reviews of how great this cake was going to be, thought I would make it for my husband's 35th b-day yesterday. It was a great cake, but not the best, the most delicious, the most penultimate ever, the take-me-to-the-moon cake I was expecting after reading the reviews. That carrot cake would have been made by the "Carrot Cake Man" in West Philadelphia, a type of cake I've been searching for years. In the end, hubby and guests liked it. I was less than impressed as I like a denser carrot cake and expected to swoon with delicious delight. No swooning. Mine looked just exactly like the picture here, but I didn't add nuts. Grated the carrots not only the smallest grate and not one that we would use for cheese, but the medium side. That worked out well as there was virtually no carrot juice and yet there was still texture. Good cake and one that will certainly get the baker compliments, but I won't be making this particular recipe again. Back on the quest for the perfect carrot cake on allrecipes site!

Sweet Potato Casserole IV

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This is it. For always and forever, this is going to be the sweet potato casserole around our home! Off the charts, five stars simply doesn't do it justice. Made a couple of minor changes: 1. Used canned yams, drained. 2. Used a lot less sugar, because of the canned yams. I started out with a 1/3 cup and kept adding for taste. 3. Used unwhipped whipping cream as I forgot to get evaporated milk. Worked fabulously. 4. Before putting on pecan streusel, dusted the top with cinnamon. 5. Made even more topping, as suggested by others. These changes were more about what I had in the house, rather than any problem with the recipe. Thanksgiving guests went wild over it. Look no more, this is THE recipe for holiday meals! Thanks for sharing it!
