Caramel Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
Really, really delicious! This cake is definitely sweet and rich. I could've sliced mine even thinner and been happy. I didn't change a thing with the batter. The only tiny thing I added (per the suggestion of another review) was a little bit of kosher salt. Probably not enough to even taste it, but next time I may add a little more. The caramel sauce is delicious, but I think it's too much. Next time I would definitely half it because I threw a lot out. I used a bundt pan and it took about 85 minutes to cook fully. Came out with no problems and didn't go over the edges at all. I served it with vanilla ice cream and the hot caramel sauce. It's very decadent, relatively easy to make and tastes delicious!

Crispy Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
I have never made a rhubarb pie, so I had no idea if it would be any good. Being from the midwest, I've had rhubarb pies/crisps quite a few times. It's one of those things that is so specific, you don't know if everyone will like it. I decided to try this recipe and it was absolutely delicious!! And, very, very quick to prepare and easy to make. The topping really gives you the best of both worlds - pie and crisp. I used a premade pie crust and it worked great (put tinfoil around the sides, take off about 15 minutes or so before the pie is done). I was worried about the rhubarb being too tart, so I added a bit of brown sugar to the white sugar/rhubarb mix. It set up perfectly, went great with vanilla ice cream and everyone loved it. Thanks for a great, simple, delicious recipe!!

Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I used to eat at Killer Shrimp quite a bit. The thing that is great about this recipe is that it's a great base to something that I thought would always remain a mystery. Everyone has a different memory of what Killer Shrimp tasted like, so I'll tell you how I did the recipe. I added a lot more garlic than was called for. I just kept tasting and adding. Next time, I would half the tomato paste - I ended up adding more beer (another change I did) because I thought the tomato flavor was too strong. I also added thyme because I thought I remembered little sprigs of it floating around, and I think it added to the dish. I put in a few more dashes of the celery seed, added a little more butter (mostly to cut the tomato taste) and also used a little cayenne pepper because that kick was missing for me. I do not think that Worchestershire sauce was in the original - I added a litte, but could tell it was going to be overpowering. Just my opinion. All in all, this is a great, decadent dish. Thank you for posting it! And, apologies to the purists out there for modifying. The basics of this recipe are great - season to taste!!

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Fantastic! I've never made homemade ice cream before, but got a great deal on a cheap sunbeam ice cream maker, so we decided to try this. It was delicious! I forgot that the recipe called for heavy cream, so we ended up using whipping cream and it was great. Nice and easy - loved not having to deal with eggs. thanks!

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This chicken is fantastic!! My sister made me try it and I was skeptical at first - it was like nothing I'd ever made. It turned out great the first time and every other time since. A couple of things that I added to the recipe - when I mix up the flour mixture, I add more garlic, some cayenne pepper and some blackened seasoning. It's not spicy, it just gives it more flavor. Each time I've made it I try some new spices in it and it always turns out great. I also use Italian bread crumbs. I, too, spray the pan with cooking spray, but I like the butter on top, so I always do that. This is a great simple, delicious recipe. Thank you!

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This is a great recipe! All of the ingredients work so well together and it doesn't taste heavy (like so many recipes with heavy cream in them do). I did the recipe almost exactly as written. While cooking the 2nd half of it (after shrimp is removed), I added some parmesean cheese and mozzarella cheese to make it thicker. There is another recipe on this site that I love, cajun seafood pasta, but this recipe is perfect if you want something lighter with great flavor. But, that is where I got the idea to add parmesean. I used a fettucine pasta, which I would not use again - it holds too much of the sauce and overpowers it. I would definitely do angel hair next time. Also, I would double the recipe if you like sauce. I found myself adding a little more cream. Definitely do fresh basil - it makes it all taste so fresh. This is a great recipe and doesn't seem really fattening. Thanks for a great recipe!

Sauteed Chicken with Greek-Style Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent dish! The flavor was amazing and I had a lot of leftover sauce. I served it with white rice and it was great. Great for young kids too. I wanted to make sure the chicken was really well done and after the oil had burned off, the only modification I made was to put some white wine in the pan to let the chicken simmer in something longer. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
I joined allrecipes simply to be able to review this amazing pasta! I have used a lot of recipes from here, but never felt compelled to review any. This pasta is out of this world. I used cayenne pepper (it's what I had on hand), used all shrimp, added one garlic clove, cut back on the parsley, used 1 1/4 cup of the whipping cream and 1 cup of half & half. I may try it with some milk next time to bring the fat down. I didn't use any white pepper, but it still had a nice kick. You could do spicier or less spicy - it's such an easy recipe. Thank you for this excellent recipe! Next time I'll add some sauteed chicken.
