Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I've made plenty of pies in my life, but for some reason I never tried to make apple. This one looked like the perfect 'introductory' recipe. Boy, was it ever! It could not have been easier to assemble and it was delicious. I took some advice from the prior reviews and mixed the sugar/cinnamon mixture (along with an extra 1/4 c. of flour) with the sliced apples (Granny Smith, natch) before pouring into the shell. Two adults and one 2nd grader finished the pie in two days. Truth be told, it was intended for my neighbor in order to return her pie dish, but she wasn't home when I went to deliver. Lucky us! She did eventually get her dish back (with a pie and a copy of the recipe, lol) and I had to tell her about the fate of my first attempt. This recipe is a keeper.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Duh-licious. Juicy and flavorful with just the right amount of heat. Double batch with half frozen for later use is the way to go. And def. use fresh minced garlic. Yum.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This is the most awesomest banana muffin recipe ever. I've made it at least a dozen times now, with excellent results every. single. time. To illustrate how good these are, let me just say that I buy extra bananas *just* to make these muffins. My guys like their bananas on the underripe side, so when they start to brown, they won't eat them. I let those "chosen" bananas sit and develop the sugars until they are worthy of this recipe. The only change I've made is to substitute sour cream for the yogurt. But that's only because the first time I made it I didn't have enough yogurt and they came out amazing; don't fix what ain't broke.

Hearty Jambalaya

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
So so so so good. I was worried about the cayenne plus the host sauce, but the spice level was just right for everyone. I did add a can of chicken broth based on the earelier reviews, but I don't think I needed all of it. I will for sure make this again.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This is really, really good. I only used a cup of oil because that's all I had left. I was kind of worried the batter was too dry, but as soon as I added the zucchini all was well. The loaves were perfect; moist and chocolatey.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Yummy. I cooked 3 breasts from frozen with a packet of Good Seasons Zesty Italian, butter, a can of cream of mushroom and a splash of white wine. After 5 hours on low I added 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms and shredded the chicken. At the 6 hour mark in went the brick of cream cheese and I cranked it to high for another 1/2 hour. I served it over egg noodles and had to stop my husband from finishing the whole thing so he would have leftovers for lunch the next day. Really delicious and easy recipe. Thanks!

Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This was really, really delicious. The chicken was so moist and the coating was so yummy. I didn't have any corn flakes so I substituted regular bread crumbs. Thanks to the subby for sharing!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
So so good and really light and fluffy; not dense and dry like most banana bread recipes. I even made a mistake and switched the measurements for the oil and half and half (which I subbed for the buttermilk) and it was delicious! I used 3 bananas, omitted the nuts because I didn't have any and baked two 8x4 loaves at 325 for 45 minutes. I think I can throw out my other banana bread recipes now because I'm not going to need them!

Tasty Baked Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Yummy, and super simple to put together. I also used Italian dressing mix in place of onion soup mix, and made them a little bigger than the recipe called for, so I ended up with about 2 dozen honkin' meatballs. I froze what the family didn't finish and the leftovers reheated so nicely in a pot of sauce. Maybe better than the first time around. Thanks for sharing!

Jamaica Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Awwww yeah. This is one awesome cake, my friends. I subbed 1 c. sugar plus 3/4. c brown sugar for the 2 c. white, cut the oil in half and used 3 bananas because bananas are made of win. I also shortened the baking time to 45 min @ 300, but that's only because my oven is electric and therefore sucks. But in the end, this is dynamite! Thanks for sharing!

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
OK, this was really yum. God bless the ingredient search feature, or else I would never have made it. My mods were as such: turkey bacon, a few dashes of hot sauce and about 2TB of grated parm, mostly because I needed to get rid of it. 2 adults and a preschooler made fast work of the entire dish. Husband is already asking when I'm going to make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Really good and really easy to make. I substituted chili sauce for the ketchup and dusted the cakes with panko instead of cornmeal, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. My husband was skeptical when I told him what was on the menu, but he ate them up! I served with a teriyaki dipping sauce and the ever popular sesame noodles on the side. Will make again.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Yummers. Funny story: I was looking on allrecipes for a dish to use up a bag of Barilla tortellini I had in the pantry, and found this one. I later realized I had saved it to my recipe box over 2 years ago. Shame on me for not making it until now. I added 4 hot Italian sausages, casings removed and crumbled, used Italian seasoning blend instead of the basil and a whole bunch of spinach, chopped. I'll be making this again for sure.

Dixie Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Yummy. I had some trouble with the gravy because I didn't get a lot of drippings from the chops. It was lumpy at first, but I added some chicken stock and worked it out with a stick blender. The end result was delicious.

Stuffed Peppers Italian Style

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was pretty good, but there was something missing. Not sure what, though, because the olive/anchovy combination added a really nice flavor. I'll probably make these again, and see if some recipe modifications will improve it.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I enjoyed this, but I'm giving it 5 stars for my husband's reaction. I made it for Christmas breakfast, and he had polished off the entire tray by the next afternoon. I didn't make any changes to the recipe. He has already asked me to make it again.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
These are spectacular. I made chocolate cake/pecan coconut frosting dipped in melted semi-sweet chips and carrot cake/cream cheese frosting/about 1/2 cup golden raisins dipped in melted white chocolate chips. For both kinds I used probably 3/4 can of the frosting, shaped the balls and chilled them in the refridge for a few hours before dipping. They look beautiful and taste even better. I actually had to hide them because my husband kept eating them! I will def. be making these again.

White Bean Chicken Chili

One Dish Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This was way better than I thought it would be. I used a lb. of chicken tenders, sprinkled seasoned salt on them and topped with some shredded Swiss. Other than that I followed the recipe exact. It was delicious.
