Overnight Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I've been searching for a really great breakfast casserole for many months now. This recipe was good, but not great. I followed the recipe exactly as written; which is what I typically do the first time around so I can give the recipe a fair review. It was easy to make and the ingredients are typically readily available without a special trip to the grocery store. Since most egg casseroles contain a lot of fat, I'm always expecting a rich and decadent taste that is filling and satisfying....a real comfort food that allows the preparer to get the prep work out of the way the night before so a relaxing morning can be had. Yes, it was nice to get all the work out of the way the night before, but unfortunately, this recipe didn't really meet my high “taste” expectation (maybe I’m simply setting the bar too high). I guess I'll have to keep looking for the "perfect" egg casserole.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This was just delicious and very simple to make. It would be a wonderful dish to bring to a holiday celebration. Leftovers also heat up beautifully.

Toll House Crumbcake II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
I made this crumbcake for a church gathering and it was very well received. As per the suggestions of other "raters," I basically doubled the ingredients used the crumb topping (excluding the chocolate chips - 2 cups for the crumb topping is plenty). I also simply used a whole bag of chocolate chips for the cake portion of the recipe (it only resulted in maybe an additional 1/2 cup of chips being used). Everyone loved it. Many guests asked for the recipe which gave me the opportunity to brag about the "allrecipes.com" web site. Delicious crumbcake that was very easy to make. I wouldn’t hesitate to make this again.

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
The first time I made this recipe, well it was a disaster. The double boiler method to make the sauce was a huge failure despite my best effort to follow the directions exactly. I ended up with a lumpy, very unappealing hollandaise sauce. The 2nd time I attempted this recipe; I used the suggestion of other "raters" and mixed the hollandaise sauce in my blender. Much, much easier and the results were perfect - a nicely incorporated sauce, not a clumpy mess. I still haven't determined however what our preference is regarding the lemon juice. 3 1/2 T. of lemon juice seemed like too much however during the 2nd try, we reduced the lemon juice to 2 T. and that actually didn't seem to be enough. I guess we'll just have to keep experimenting with the lemon juice. Over all however, a really easy recipe. The only down side is that this is a recipe that should be piping hot for the best results. A real challenge when you are preparing this for 4 or 5 people (the eggs will get ahead of you, the muffins will start to brown too quickly, or the bacon or sauce will start to get too cool). I'll definitely try this again.

Three Pepper Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Considering all the fresh vegestables in this recipe, I was expecting a very flavorful dish. Although it smelled good, I found this to be vitually tasteless. It also required a fair amount of prep work due to all the chopping. The portions are also very large and I'm not sure what to do with all the leftovers as no one in my family liked this dish. This recipe just didn't work for my family and I won't be using this again.

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
These were sooooooo good that I had to have my husband get them out of the house before I ate them all! I was a little concerned about the "soft ball" stage since I didn't have a candy thermometer however after about 8 minutes it reached the stage perfectly. Note however that I attempted to double the recipe the 2nd time around to save some time and it didn't work out as well. I would definitely make these again (and again and again and again).

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
My husband LOVED these nuts. So much in fact that when he is away on business, he asked that I make some and mail to him. I personally found these nuts to be just "okay" however they were very easy to make and since my hubby loved them so much I gave it a 5 star rating.

Simply Divine Meat Loaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
Very easy to make and it tasted great. My 15 month old also loved it. I used Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix because it was the only packet I had on hand. I would definitely make this recipe again. Next time I might use a light or fat free Italian salad dressing to try to cut down on some of the calories.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Very good taste and quick and easy to make. Also, most people would have all the required ingredients in their pantry so it's a great "last minute" breakfast idea. If you're looking for a simple and fail proof recipe.....this would be the one.

Salsa II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
I loved this recipe. It was my first try at making (and canning) homemade salsa. The recipe was easy and it tasted delicious...even better than store bought per my husband. I added some minced garlic and tossed in some chilli peppers from my garden. Although it tasted great, next time I plan on chopping the onions and peppers up a bit finer so the overall texture is not so chuncky!

Herbal Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
Rather than making my traditional tuna salad, I tried this recipe because it had received so many high ratings. I was however unimpressed with the taste and the texture of this tuna salad. Placing the eggs in a food processor with the mayo and other ingredients (minus the tuna of course) resulted in a tuna spread rather than a chuncky tuna salad. In addition, I thought the overall result was rather tasteless. I personally didn't care for this recipe and won't be using it again :-(
