Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
This was great. I used olive oil mayo to help with the fat content. It is also great with crasins instead of raisins.

Fruitcake Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
My husband loves these. I am not a fan of fruitcake, but I really like these. They do get better with age.

Simple Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I consider myself a really good cook, but I cooked per the recipe, and my steaks came out extremely tough

Bread and Butter Pickles II

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
These were great! I used red pepper instead of green, because I like them better, but other than that, I didn't change a thing.

Asian Style Country Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
These were really good. I made them twice before I reviewed them. I made it as is, and I thought it needed something. The second time I added 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce, and it helped make them perfect!

Sweet Italian Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This recipe was great. I made it as written the first time, and the second time I made changes. I sauted 1 diced medium onion in just a little bit of the bacon grease after the bacon was removed. Instead of the diced tomatoes, I used 1/2 a can of tomato puree. I thought it had a more consistant tomato flavor than with chunks of tomato. It turned out great! I will be using this recipe frequently.

Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This shrimp recipe was great. I used 1 tsp of regular paprika and 1 tsp of smoked spanish paprika. I only added 1 TBS of brown sugar, and it was perfect. I would add a little more sugar if you had a bit more that 2 lbs shrimp, or if they were larger than 21/25, to make sure they are coated.

Tiramisu Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
This turned out really well, but I had to double the Kahlua and add 4 TBS of expresso powder to help the flavor out a bit.

Cajun Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This had way too much meat in it. I would do half or less of the andouille, and maybe try it with ground beef, instead of chicken, just to mix it up a little. The flavor was great, and it tasted better the 2nd day, but my husband didn't seem crazy about it, and he loves spicy things.

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This was one of the best recipes I have used on Allrecipes. My husband raved about it. I used an immersion blender to make it a little smoother. It still left small chunks, which I like better. I didn't have any red pepper, but next time I am going to try roasted sweet red peppers.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I liked this recipe. I seared them until brown on both sides, after dusting them with flour and seasoning. I then made the sauce, returned them to the pan and cooked them through. They came out very moist and had great flavor. I put it all on a bed of egg noodles. I used a roux of a little oil and flour to thicken, and I also used chicken stock, instead of bullion.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I loved this recipe, but I changed so much in it, I didn't give 5 stars because I almost made up a different recipe! I used 1 can cream of mushroom, 2 cans cream of chicken, and 2 cups milk, since many said it was dry. I used whole wheat egg noodles, instead of shells and cooked them for 5 minutes, so they were a little under done. I added 1 bag of frozen broccoli florets (peas would be great also!) to the last 2 minutes of the pasta cooking, so they would thaw quickly. I added 1 4oz can of mushrooms, 2 ribs of celery finely chopped, the tops of 3 green onions, 1 tsp of white pepper and garlic powder, and no salt. I used 8 slices of American cheese. Instead of using chips, I used the same amount of crushed croutons, which I microwaved with 1 pat of butter to coat before I put them on the casserole. I only cooked it for 20 minutes, then shut off the oven and left it for 10 more. It turned out wonderfully! Usually, tuna casserole will come out dry (or mushy) if you overcook the noodles, or add too many extra things without adding extra liquid.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
I thought these turned out great. I added an extra 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp chipotle powder, 1/2 tsp cajun spice, 1 tsp liquid smoke, and a little extra salt and pepper to taste. My husband thought they were really good.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
This recipe turned out well. I used 6 TBS of cocoa and 2 TBS of shortening because I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate. I also cut the oil in half and replaced it with no sugar added applesauce. As far as it sticking, I sprayed with butter and flour spray and added parchment to the bottom, and it didn't stick at all. Some people may be having a sticking problem because the chips tend to sink to the bottom. If you mix the chips with just a little flour before adding them to the batter, they will not sink as much.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I don't know why I didn't read the reviews ahead of time, as I usually do. My husband and I LOVE spicy hot food, but this was way to much. I had to rinse off my pork just to eat it! I wonder if they meant 3 tsps, instead of TBS. The smoky flavor was great, though. Next time I'll use 1 TBS chipotle pepper and make up the rest of the smoky flavor with smoked paprika, which is mild.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
The flavor of this recipe was good, but it definately needs more spice, like hot pepper flakes. Also, it took longer to cook by about 25 minutes. Next time, I would add the salt after the cauliflower is roasted, since too much water leaches out during cooking if it is added before roasting, hindering the carmelization of the veggies.

Thumbprint Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
These turned out well, but if you didn't get a good bite of jelly, they weren't sweet enough. I would probably add 1/4 cup sugar to the nuts and roll the cookies in that mixture, that way you are adding sweetness without altering the dough recipe.

Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I thought this was good, but I would change a few things next time. I think the sauce was a bit too sweet, and I didn't even use sweet BBQ sauce, so I would probably elimate the honey, unless the mango was not as ripe as it should be. Or just use the jarred mango in the refridge section, as they are always sweet. I would also mix in just part of the sauce to simmer with the pork at the end, because the whole amount seemed to overpower the pork to the point that all you could taste was the sauce. That way when it is served, each person can determine how much sauce they want to add. With these changes I would make it again, since it is cheap, easy and feed a large crowd! On another note, you can get Chipotle Powder at Penzey's Spices. If you don't have one where you live, you can mail order it through their catalog.
