Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
My mother-in-law has made this for the last two years at the holidays and we love it! I made it for the first time myself recently. I cannot find frozen cranberry juice anywhere, so I had to use another flavor. I chose White Grape with Raspberry (my MIL uses mixed berry). I also neglected to read that it only calls for 1 1/2 liters of ginger ale and I used the whole 2 liter. It's fantastic! I'm making it next week for my son's Scout Christmas party! Yum!

Quick Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
I've been making this for years. I use hamburger buns or sandwich bread, too, whichever is handy. I also use parsley instead of basil. It's such a great idea, fast, and helps use up bread that would otherwise go bad. Thanks for submitting!

Snow Cone Syrup II

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Love this recipe, but it is way too sweet! Next time I'll cut down on the sugar and make sure it's cold before I try to pour it over ice! Definitely a keeper - now I just have to find a pourable storage solution!

Beer Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were very tasty! I was so surprised that I didn't need to add extra ingredients like bread crumbs or an egg to hold the burgers together, but I didn't! They were juicy and full of flavor! I can't wait to make them again!

Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Delicious! I can't rate it 5 stars because I changed it slightly, but we loved it and I will be making it again! I used a little more olive oil and dried herbs, but that's all the changes I made. Thanks for a great recipe!

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
This is pretty much the way I've made sauteed mushrooms most of my life, except I've never put garlic in them before. Gonna have to try that! Glad this is being shared...the first time I made them for my in-laws, they were gone almost before we sat down to eat!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Divine! I took some earlier advice and lined my baking dish with foil and doubled the sauce (didn't really need to, but I'm glad I did). I will absolutely, without a doubt be making this again! Love it! Thanks so much!!!

Broken Spaghetti Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
This turned out very well in spite of me. I over-browned my spaghetti, which somehow didn't detract from the overall flavor that I could tell. Also, I didn't measure exactly the amount of spaghetti so I needed a lot more liquid than the recipe called for. Other than that, though, it's great to have the recipe on hand in a pinch, but it's quicker & easier to use something like Rice a Roni. It's still going in my recipe box, though! Thanks, Chef John!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
I probably shouldn't give this 5 stars, because I won't ever make it as is (I don't like tomatoes), so I have to rate it as I made it. Instead of tomatoes, I used mushrooms, which with the cream sauce, turned out more like cream of mushroom soup. It was DELICIOUS!! My husband said he thought he'd like it better with mushrooms than tomatoes. The chicken was tender and juicy and we loved it! I forgot to do step 3 (next time, I'm sure it'll add even more dimension to an already excellent recipe)! And instead of fettuccine, I served it over the broken spaghetti risotto recipe from this site. This one's a keeper, for sure!

Dijon-Dill Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
This is 4 star as written - and I tasted it before I made any changes. However, I didn't use the water chestnuts (don't like them and didn't have any) and I added some sour cream to give it a little creamier texture. With those changes, it was almost 5 stars....will have to do further tweaking, but I'm definitely keeping this recipe. Thanks!

Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Fabulous dish! Simple and delicious! Totally great as is, but capable of being personalized, too. My family is already asking me to make it again! Love it!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Made this last night and we all enjoyed it. However, I am not a huge fan of chunky salsa, but that was all I had. Next time, I am going to try making it with taco sauce instead. I did add a dash of cumin, salt and pepper. Oh, and I made 12 medium (soft taco) enchiladas. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Super-Easy Stir-Fry Article - Allrecipes.com

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Stir-fry used to intimidate me, but no longer! Following the directions in this article will result in a perfectly cooked dinner you can be proud of! Both times I've made this, I used country style pork ribs. The pork was tender and juicy. I also did the sweet & sour sauce both times; however, the first time I didn't use any ginger and the second, I just sprinkled ground ginger over the veggies. It was delicious both times! Whenever I'm in the mood for stir fry, this is my go-to recipe! My husband and son love it, too!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
This is a fabulous recipe and my family loves it. However, everything that goes in the slow cooker (except for the garlic) is a recipe from the Fix It and Forget It cookbook. Can't really claim this one as your own. I think adding garlic is a great idea and I'll try that next time I make it.

Carolina Style Low Carb Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
This recipe was fantastic! I followed it exactly until after it was made (so the stars come from the original recipe). It was almost too spicy for me, but I loved the flavor...until the bite! I added a little more sugar and some molasses to try to cut the spice. Didn't help a whole lot, but it was still great! My husband loved it and my son said a little less spicy and it would be perfect. I plan on keeping a batch on hand at all times!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
I made this cake yesterday and thought the flavor was outstanding. I followed the recipe directions exactly and, like some other reviewers, the cake turned out very crumbly. It wasn't dry, though, just crumbly. I think the next time I make it, I will use oil instead of some or all of the water. Very good, but not quite 5 stars as is.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Made these today for a family Easter dinner and they were a huge hit! My hubby wanted to make BIG burgers, so we ended up adding a little more of everything and they tasted wonderfully! The only change was I used mozzarella instead of cheddar because that's what I had. Also, instead of wrapping only the outer side of the patties, I wrapped the bacon around the whole patty, which worked great! They were juicy and very tasty! Will be making these again!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
My family really liked this salad! It sure makes a lot, which is great, because we like leftovers, too! I would have given it 5 stars, but I didn't add the onion, celery, pepper, carrot or pimentos. I also followed a suggestion from another reviewer to chill the macaroni and dressing separately and add them together before serving. It worked perfectly! Thanks for a great recipe!
