Turkish Fish Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
I was surprised at how much I liked this. I only added 1 t. of pepper flakes which made the heat tolerable. I didn't have stewed tomatoes, so I just used diced and they were fine. Also, I had a bag of pollock in my freezer and it was really good, so I figured I saved myself about five dollars on this dish. I would probably halve the amount of couscous next time.

Root Beer Float Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I made cupcakes with this recipe and took it to a Father's Day cookout. After reading the reviews, I decided to add the rootbeer concentrate (all I could find at the store. Is it the same as extract?)to the batter. The long mixing time made these light and airy. I also made the Cool Whip/vanilla pudding frosting and added a little rootbeer concentrate to that too. Crushed rootbeer barrels on top were great, but don't add them too early before serving because they kind of melt in the topping. I was told that I had to make these again.

Vegetable Pizza II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This is a recipe I had tried before but couldn't find, so I was glad it was on this site. Along with some of the standard vegetables, I added chopped water chestnuts for the crunch and sliced black olives for the contrast. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over the whole thing. I had a lot of cream cheese mixture left over too, but I decided to use that as a dip for another day. We had it for a small New Year's Eve get together and the hostess informed me that I was not going to get to take any of it home. Her husband just loved it.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
I was excited to see this recipe. In fact, in looking over the reviews, I bought a Stir Crazy popcorn popper just for this reason. I also used butter flavored oil. My first batch turned out a little brown, but the next time around I waited until the kernels were just about ready to pop before I poured the sugar over them. Turned out fantastic!

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
This was nice and creamy. I shouldn't have added the salt, however, because with the ham and soup, it was too salty for me. Next time, I will wait until it's cooked to see if it needs any. Otherwise, It was very, very good.

Runzas II (Bierocks)

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
The recipe I got from a college roommate for this called them Fleischbrooks. I've always loved them. I didn't put in MSG, though. I usually put in some cumin and I like that taste. When they come out of the oven, I like to cut open the top and sprinkle in the cheese and top with some sour cream. One thing, though--The bread dough should probably be brought up to room temperature. I thawed mine in the refrigerator and it was impossible to roll out the dough until had warmed up. I like the idea of spreading butter on the finished product. Maybe some garlic powder or some other seasoning in the melted butter might be tasty too

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
I had originally intended to drizzle white chocolate over these, but they were VERY sweet. I chickened out and used vanilla instead of brandy but it still had a great flavor.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I also halved this and put it in a 9 x 9 pan. The only thing I did differently was to dip the apple wedges into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar before rolling them up in the crescent dough. I mixed up what was left and poured that over the top. I have to say that these were wonderful. I'm having my sister over for dinner tomorrow night and I'm making these again! Very nice recipe.

Mexican Style Sausage Hash

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
I love this for a weekend breakfast because it has what I consider the necessary breakfast items: Eggs, Potatoes, and Sausage. The green chilies just add that something extra!

Santa Fe Bean and Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This really is versatile. You can make it vegetarian by adding vegetable broth and omitting the chicken or you can make it a stew by adding less broth. You can even add or omit the beans you do or do not like. From start (opening up the cans) to finish (eating) it takes 10 minutes.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
I made this the other night and everyone loved it. The only thing I did differently was to put about double the artichokes in it, thanks to a very large jar from Costco. I served it with crackers, tortilla chips, and a boule of crusty bread--something for everbody. This was so easy and it really didn't need the sour cream or cream cheese I've seen in other recipes. I will definitely be making this again!

Slow Cooker Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I had first tried this recipe years ago when I had seen it on a PBS fundraiser. I've since lost the recipe so I thought I'd try my luck on Allrecipes. Since this was it, I decided to make it for Christmas brunch. Like other reviewers, I also cut down on the cooking time. I did the one hour on high but I only did one and a half hours on low. Came out perfectly! For those who think it's too rich, I think when I had seen it on that program I got the impression that it was supposed to be a dip. It would be great for that but you have to make sure your spinach is really finely chopped. Thank you so much for the recipe. Now I won't have to wait so long until the next time I make it.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I used a fully cooked ham for this. I mixed all the glaze ingredients with a little water to make a nice paste and slathered a little over half of it on the ham. I put about a cup and a half of water in the bottom of the pan, covered the pan with foil and put it in a 350 degree oven for one and a half hours, basting the ham twice. After that time, I took the foil off and spread the last of the glaze mix on the ham and cooked the whole thing for another half hour. It tasted great. The flavors weren't over the top. Instead, they complimented the taste of the ham. I know I'll definitely be making this again.

Easy Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This was so easy and tasted very good. Due to time issues, I had to let this marinate for about 24 hours. I'm glad I did, as I think it drew out more moisture. I think the only thing I would do differently was to add a little bit more liquid smoke. This was good right out of the oven as well as cold.
