Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Very delicious soup! The toasted slivered almonds are an amazing touch. My dad had 4 bowls, and he's not what I would call a fan of healthy food. He requested more barley and less potatoes. Like most people, I made my own adjustments. I hate mushrooms, so they didn't make the cut. Also, I used half no salt added chicken stock and half no salt vegetable stock. Next time, I will add some fresh herbs during cooking to compensate for the lack of salt. Still a 5-star recipe because I know that my alterations changed the outcome of the recipe. This is a keeper! Truly a wonderful, hearty (and healthy!) soup perfect for a chilly night.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I strayed from the recipe a bit, mainly because I can't stand pork and beans. I 1.5ed the "sauce" ingredients and used a 30 oz can of pinto beans, 15 oz can of light red kidney beans, 15 oz can of red beans, and 15 oz can of butter beans. I drained, but did not rinse the beans (why rinse away that great bean flavor?). I also added several shakes of a basic Louisiana hot sauce. Everyone loved the beans, with several people have third and fourth helpings. What I like most about this recipe is that the sauce is NOT a thick, syrupy goo that takes over the beans. You can see what you're eating, and also get the great flavor from the spices in the sauce.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
First time out the gate making fondant of any kind. I used the kitchen aid mixer for all but the last cup of powdered sugar, kneaded the rest and it worked perfect. I made it the day I used it and chilled in in the freezer for a couple hours and had no issues working with it after that. The kids loved the flavor and my wife is impressed with the cake I made.

Simply the best. Not one thing needs changing. Possibly the best recipe I've ever found on Allrecipes.

Baked Beans from Scratch

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
I give this recipe a two as kind of an average. Please note, I followed the recipe to the letter. People at the party left their beans on their plates. Here's how I came to the two average. The flavor is terrible. Too sweet, no kick and no dimension. The cheapest canned beans have more complex flavor. For technique, I would give this recipe five stars. This has got to be the way to cook beans for perfect texture. The problem here is in the ingredients. It should have been a red flag when there was no vinegar, no mustard, no roasted peppers, etc. The Worcestershire sauce and chili powder are no match for the syrup, molasses and brown sugar. I'll use this recipe as a guide to come up with beans that please a Midwestern crowd.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Very, very good. My son wanted mint chocolate chip ice cream for his birthday party and this one is a winner. If I had any issues, it's that even the mini chips are still a bit big on the tooth for ice cream. I think a few pulses in the food processor would knock them down in size and make them more appealing in the ice cream. Still, this is a great recipe.

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
This was my first venture into making ice cream and it was a huge hit at my son's birthday party. My wife declared it the best ice cream she's ever had.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Very good! These were a huge hit at tonight's "Breakfast for Dinner" gathering. I thought I had everything on hand, but realized I had no plain yogurt. A quick scan of the fridge revealed some sour cream, so I used that. Tasted great!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
My wife kept asking me if it was worth all this trouble to make pizza crust. I told her that the reviews for this recipe were all good, so I forged ahead. We were not disappointed. My 6-year-old son proclaimed "You make the best pizza ever dad!" The only thing I added was a teaspoon of pizza seasoning along with the olive oil and salt. We have a 12-inch pizza stone and half of the dough is too much for a stone of this size. Next time I will divide the dough into thirds. Thanks for a great recipe!

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
Outstanding cookie for making cutouts. I made a batch for my son to take to daycare and they were a hit ... of course kids will eat just about any cookie. To be sure, I took the extras to work and the tray was empty in minutes. Several people commented about how good the cookies were, and my co-workers are not polite by nature. I did screw up the frosting, but it still tasted great. Attempting to double the amount of frosting, I used 4 tablespoons of butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 5 cups sugar and 6 tablespoons milk. I quadrupled the butter (math skills: not so good), so the frosting never got rock hard. It had a nice firmness on the outside, but soft and creamy underneath. With this recipe, I think I have finally convinced my wife that we can stop buying tubes of sugar cookie dough. Ugh.

Great Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
This was outstanding and will most likely become my "go-to" recipe for grilled chicken breasts. Typically, I hate the reviews that say "I substitued this, this and this," but I had to make one switch because I didn't have any Italian Dressing packets on hand. I used a recipe I found here for "Italian Dressing Mix Submitted by Debby" that worked just as well. My 10-year-old nephew come runnning out to the grill yelling "These are awesome! Start cooking more!"

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
Wow. I had always been a Bisquick pancake kind of guy. That's what I grew up eating and that's what I always made when the family was in the mood for pancakes. No more. This morning, a misplaced wild hair sent me here to find a "from scratch" recipe. The reviews on this one don't lie. I didn't change a thing and the pancakes are awesome. The batter is a simple mixture of things most occasional cooks will have on hand. The pancakes brown up beautifully, just like the ones at your favorite pancake house. Some folks have suggested adding more sugar. I chose not to as I like the sweetness to come from the syrup selection.

Down-South Style Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
This recipe turned out awesome. I used 4 lbs. of beans and only 6-8 cups of water ... worked just fine in the slow cooker. I also used smoked ham hocks which added another layer of flavor. Everybody at dinner raved about these beans.
