Layered Eggplant Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
YAHOO!! I just sat through a dinner with my twin 3.5 year olds telling me "This is delicious" while shoveling eggplant into their mouths. I made a very simplified version of this recipe. The tomato etc that gets mixed with the ground beef sounded like spaghetti sauce to me so I just used Mids (A.K.A. "the best") jarred sauce. Like some other reviewers I skipped the onion layer. Assembly took 10 minutes! Cook time was just a little less than a Disney video on a rainy day. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you allrecipes.com_______ Too funny. It is 4 years later and I just came across this review from one of my first uses of this website. Guess what? My kids still ASK for this dish about once a month.

Pork Chop Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
So GOOD! I wish I had made a double batch. I did use 4 pork chops instead of 2 (they were kind of thin cut) I also doubled the broccoli and halved the potato. EDIT: I have made this soup many times now so I wanted to add to my review. I now use the full amount of potato but have increased the chicken stock and water by 1 cup each. I start with the called-for amount of each spice then add according to taste after the first boil. Celery salt makes a good addition. I still double the broccoli but I hold half of it out and right before I serve the soup I flash-steam it for about 2-3 minutes in the microwave then add it to the soup. That bright green of the broccoli makes the soup look extra appetizing.

Hungarian Noodle Side Dish

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Very tasty. I added chunks of chicken that I sauted with some red pepper. I didn't have poppy seeds so I used caraway seeds, they added a great underlying flavor. Next time I will make a half batch or freeze half because this was a TON of food. Almost wouldn't fit in my crockpot.

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
To make room for more veggies I used only drumsticks, no thighs. I cut the seasonings in half and it still seemed like a lot. I will go with even less next time. I added some brussels sprouts, they came out PERFECT. After reading the other reviews I decided to try the bacon both ways, wrapped and on top. Will definitely ONLY lay it on top next time. Wrapping it around the chicken made it so neither of them got crispy, which we prefer.

Fettuccine Italiana

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
I love a recipe that has flexibility. I substituted shredded leftover turkey for the sausage and since I did not have mushrooms I used celery. I used a multicolor spiral pasta that my kids love and the whole thing came together very quickly. It did need a bit more seasoning but most likely I lost a little flavor because of not using the sausage. This one goes in the quick-easy-good-on-a-school-night file. *UPDATE* Made this with Turkey sausage this time and the flavor was perfect. 4.5 Stars!!

Anginettes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
Easy to make. Add nice color to a tin of gift-cookies. I made the dough balls fairly small to keep them bite size so I had to almost triple the frosting amount. Next time I will use the juice of a WHOLE orange instead of just half becuse they came out a little on the bland side until they were frosted.

Green Bean Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I added brown rice which turned this into a complete meal in one casserole. I pre-cooked the brown rice and made it into a bottom layer. My other changes were cutting the chicken into serving size portions for each family member then just laying 2-3 strips of that pre-cooked bacon over each one. I decided not to use bread crumbs cuz it seemed like there was enough going on in that pan already!! Came out delish. Even the leftovers were yummy.

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Good basic dinner. The roux/sauce tasted great before I poured it over the potatoes and it smelled WONderful while cooking but somehow it ended up tasting a little bland. Some garlic and minced onion next time.

Country House Bed and Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Be careful if you double this. I tripled the amount of croutons and used 7 eggs instead of 8. It would have been better with still more croutons. I used Zesty Italian croutons which gave it a zippy flavor. Actually a bit too much flavor for one of my guests but everyone else really enjoyed it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Easy & tasty. My favorite combination. Plus it smelled great all day. Will definitely cut back on the butter next time. Used cream of mushroom instead of cream of chix soup. Served over tri-color past. Added steamed broccoli before serving.

Ham, Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Super easy prep. I used 2 stalks fresh broccoli. Came out a little runny and French Fries were undercooked so I left it in the oven 12 more minutes then turned the oven off and let it stand in the oven another 10 minutes. Came out much better. Next time I will bake the FF by themselves for about 20 minutes THEN add the rest of the ingredients. Just needed a little salt & pepper at the table.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is my 3rd or 4th year making these. IMO the seed quantity is off. I have found that using 3 cups of seeds works much better with that much sugar. If you don't have that much seeds then definitely cut back on the other ingredients. Also, I use cinnamon instead of pumpkin pie spice.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Instant classic at our house. Only change I made was spicing up the flour with some white pepper and paprika. My chops were on the thin side so 4.5 hours in the crockpot on low was plenty. Sauce could have been a bit thicker. Next time I will either remove some of the broth before adding the flour and sour cream or maybe use more flour. Served this with Peppridge Farm Stuffing and asparagus. Dinner hit the table 30 minutes after I hit the door. YAY!!!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
The taste of the dressing is PERFECTION. Just be careful how much you use. I tripled the Salad ingredients and only doubled the dressing ingredients but still had WAY too much dressing. The first time I made this I took it to our church picnic (that's how much I trust allrecipe's ratings!!). When I retrieved my bowl to take it home, it was the only one completely empty!!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
YUM-mee!! I minced some leftover broccoli to add mostly for color but it gave a nice texture too. I froze the leftovers and they made handy lunchbox fare. Microwave, wrap in foil, then a sandwich baggie and it's good to go.

Hearty Harvest and Ham Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
What a great Fall dish! Potatoes definitely need to be cut large. I wanted to speed up cooking time so I cut the potatoes a bit smaller and ended up with mashed potato stew BUT the flavor was still fantastic. Love that caraway kick. A definite keeper, YUM!

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I used 2 frozen chicken leg quarters. Boiled those (for about 1/2 hr+) while I prepared the rest of the ingredients. Used fresh mushrooms and did not miss having the liquid. Cut back on gr. pepper and added leftover corn on the cob. Served over mashed potatotes but will definitely use chow mein noodles next time. Thanks for the tip Tennismom, that is how I remember this meal as a child. No pimento handy so I just sprinkled Paprika over each bowl. Both kids LOVED this, even the gr pepper hater! Definite comfort food and makes you feel like a real cook even though it is easy to make.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
O how I LOVE the helpful reviews on this site. I added almost 1/2 cup more rice to the recipe so that all the liquid would absorb. (Worked out great for leftovers!) It still took over an hour to finish cooking. I kept the dish covered for the first hour then uncovered for 15-20 until the last of the liquid was absorbed. Even with that short time being uncovered it got a little crunchy on top. I used 3/4 tsp garlic powder instead of 1 tsp garlic salt. I knew before I started that I would add steamed peas before serving but at the last second I noticed a handful of roasted peanuts and peanut dust in the bottom of a jar so I added those, too. The kids really liked this except one commented that it was "too buttery" so I'll cut back on that next time. I served it with a whole baked chicken. After dinner I pulled all the meat off the carcass, shredded it, added it to the leftover rice, froze the whole thing and now the sitter will be able to give the kids a home-made meal next week. Yippee!! all the way around.
