Butter Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
O....M.....G.....This turned out wonderfully! I followed the recipe as written, the only addition I made was near the end of the cooking time, it was a packet of brown gravy. I just mixed it in and let it thicken. The meat was in pretty big pieces so I took my kitchen scissors and cut them smaller. It was a hit with the hubby and all three kids! Took about 4 hours on high in the crock pot. We ate it with rice and mashed potatoes....tasted great with both. Delicious!

Margarita Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I didn't have any lime juice so I substituted lemon juice and I only had clover honey. Other than that, I made the recipe as is. It turned out nice, hubby liked it. It was light. I may try marinating it longer next time.

Jazzy New Orleans Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
This was wonderful! A big hit for dinner! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them into a little larger than bite-sized pieces. I also used one pound of turkey kielbasa. I did not add the rice to the pot, however, as my family prefers their rice separate. I had no problem with it thickening without the rice either and that was with using two cups of fat-free chicken broth. One can of diced tomatoes worked perfectly well as a substitute for the fresh tomatoes as mentioned by another reviewer. It was amazing! I couldn't get enough! Definitely making this again!

Refried Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
These were soooo delicious! I actually add 1/2 pound lean ground beef, browned and a 1/2 pound lean ground turkey, browned to the bean mixture....makes the hubby happier. I've tried with corn tortillas and flour tortillas.....flour turns out much better as the corn tortillas tend to break when attempting to roll up. Definitely a keeper, I've already made this several times now.

Salmon Tango

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
This was great! Fabulous even. The hubby and I totally loved it. I didn't have any white wine and it tasted wonderful without it. I will be making this again, possibly next week, and I will be adding some minced garlic to it and maybe some pepper. Thank you for sharing!

Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This......was.....so.....awesome! (Read that with the sing-song awesomeness it was intended to have.) :) I did make a few changes as per some of the other other reviews. I used 2 packages of turkey kielbasa, only 1 cup of ketchup, only 4 tablespoons of Best Life Spread, and I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic. The rest remained the same. Put it in a large pot on the stove, brought it to a boil then simmered while the rice was cooking. When the rice was done, the kielbasa was done. And the sauce is most excellent on the rice! I also served sauteed bell peppers. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
This was excellent! I did use cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom and added some sauteed onion and garlic as mentioned in other comments, also the 1/4 milk. Hubby loved it. Can't wait to try making it again but using more spinach, I used what I had from an already opened bag of fresh spinach....a little too creamy but it was my mistake. This is definitely a keeper!

Alternative Baked Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This was excellent! I did add in the minced garlic as we love garlic. I also didn't have any lemon juice on hand so I substituted apple cider vinegar. Turned out wonderful. I only baked it, no broiling, it didn't really need it.

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Chicken or Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This was absolutely delicious! I totally didn't have all of the veggies listed so mine was made with broccoli florets, sliced fresh carrots, and onions. It was a winner with the whole family! And regular Kikkoman works wonderfully if you don't have mushroom soy sauce. I also put the oyster sauce in with the cut up chicken and let it marinate while I cleaned my rice and prepped my veggies. I will be making this again!

Quick Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I have made this recipe many times now. I can't believe I hadn't rated & reviewed it! If you're looking for an easy chicken noodle soup, this is the one! My kids absolutely love this! I do tend to use a lot more chicken broth than the recipe calls for but maybe I just like my soup....soupier. :) Instead of mixed veggies, I slice up fresh carrots. I have made this soup using boneless chicken breasts as the recipe states and with canned chicken....both had no leftovers when all was said and done! Love it!

Honey-Orange Marinated Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This was most excellent! The hubby loved it! I followed the recipe with what I had on hand. The only changes were white onion because that's what I had, an extra T of OJ because I had no sherry or apple juice, about 1t ground ginger because that's what I had, and a clove of minced garlic because we like garlic. And I tried reducing the marinade on the stove and putting it on my rice....sooooo yummy!

Hamburger Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Excellent! When browning my 1/2 lean ground beef and 1/2 ground turkey, I added chopped onion, minced garlic and a little Kikkoman. I then added the broccoli (that's what I had on hand.) I added the 2 cups of water and the popular can of mushroom soup suggestion. I added the 3 packs from the ramen noodles and heated it all through. Then I added the 3 packs of ramen noodles and simmered while my rice was cooking. Loved it!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Awesome. Totally awesome. This was my first time making buckeyes myself and I think it will now be a new Christmas tradition. The kids loved helping and we all loved eating! I did increase the peanut butter to 2 cups and decrease the powdered sugar to 4 cups as per previous tips. I had no problems. Wonderful!

Beefy Cheesy Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
This was delicious! I've made my own hamburger helper stuff before....I really like how easy and simple this was. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, too! I followed everything the recipe said. I did use ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also added hamburger seasoning to the turkey as it was cooking...habit. The only other addition was a can of low-sodium beef broth. I alternated adding that with the sliced cheese....gave it a smoother and wetter texture. Oh, I did use penne pasta because that's what I had on hand. Excellent! UPDATE: I have also made this several times using the meat base and boxed mac & cheese. Turns out great that way, too!

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These were absolutely delicious! I ended up getting 18 out of the recipe. I only needed 12 for the muffin swap I'm going to so I had 6 extra. The extras only lasted like five minutes! I did increase the sugar to 1/2 cup as mentioned in a few other reviews. I didn't have any suggested lemon juice so I used lime juice. I did add a little extra milk as it was hard to stir. I made these with my 2 1/2 year old and it made for a lovely afternoon. My only problem was taking the wrappers off....the wrappers totally stuck to the muffins! Next time, I'll spray first. :) And there will be a next time! The hubby already asked when I was making more. :)

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was awesome! Everyone loved it. I used a clove of garlic instead of garlic powder and a cup of fat free chicken broth instead of the water & bouillon. I also omitted the celery as my hubby is not fond of it. One thing I did add that is not in the original ingredient list was a tablespoon of oyster sauce...mmmm. My hubby went and got some peanuts out of the cupboard and put some on top. Delicious! I am soooo making this again! Thanks!

5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Decided at the last minute to make cornbread with the chili tonight so I came to allrecipes.com to find a recipe......and I found this one. Since it was the first time making it, I didn't change anything. The hubby said it could be sweeter. I eat mine with butter and honey so I didn't notice. Even the kids liked it. I loved how easy and quick it was to make....and in the microwave. I'd never heard of cornbread done in the microwave before. Mine took a total of six minutes to be completely done but even at that.....it's a heck of a lot shorter than in the oven! And great for a last minute add to dinner! You definitely have to try this!

Beefy Baked Ravioli

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Excellent recipe! First time I used the cheese ravioli. We loved it but the kids weren't too hot on the cheese ravioli. Next time I made it with the beef ravioli and left out the pound of ground beef. Everyone was happy that time. This is a great meal that really doesn't take long to throw together. I used more than half the package of ravioli and I didn't measure the cheese, just eyeballed it. Tonight is the third night I'm making it! :)
