Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
What a pleasant surprise this soup is! Good, humble food. Served with some bread, it makes a perfect meal on a chilly evening. I wanted to use the leftover bone from Christmas ham and found this recipe. I was skeptical upon reading it. I really thought it would turn out bland. On the contrary, it is full of flavor without any additional seasoning. The ham bone does all the work.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
I always get a kick out of the reviews that change a recipe so much that it is no longer anything near the original! Look, the whole point of this recipe is that it is uncomplicated. There are plenty of really good fancy-sassy tomato soup recipes to try, if that's what you want. But this soup sticks to a great principle: simple recipes are often the best. And the result is what tomato soup should taste like. Few additives and fresh, ripe tomatoes. Real tomato flavor. Don't change a thing and you will be rewarded.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I've been making this recipe for a long time now. I absolutely love it. However, you can DEFINITELY simplify it to where it really isn't a chore at all, if you don't mind chopped chicken rather than shredded: 1) dice the chicken 2)saute the chicken in a large skillet 3) dump in all the remaining ingredients and simmer until it is reduced and not too watery. Leave out the broth. 4) build your enchiladas and cook! It tastes just the same as the long method and is super easy!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Don't go any further if you are looking for a French Dip! This recipe is perfect. Do NOT change a thing to this recipe. If you follow it, you will be rewarded with an awesome sandwich. I have made this countless times and it needs no adjustments. It's fun to make when entertaining: great casual meal with almost no fuss. Serve with french fries!

Cajun Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This is a really good sandwich. Super easy to prepare and makes for a hearty meal. The tomatoes and lettuce are critical to its flavor...don't omit them. I used a cheese Kaiser roll, soft and perfect. Don't forget to pound the chicken thin. It grills in under ten minutes. Consider spreading the bread with a little thousand island dressing, too!

Peanut Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Pretty tasty! Sort of Thai inspired. Make the recipe as written but try serving it on large lettuce leaves. Top it with freshly shredded carrots and a little cilantro.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
Outstanding recipe! My only minor tweaks would be to add some red pepper flakes in the sauce and make more of it. Trippling it seems about right. Also, I add somewhat fewer sesame seeds in the sauce.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
A really simple recipe that looks and tastes as though you worked on it for hours. Great mid-week meal. Love the creamy filling. Pour some enchilada sauce on it before you cook it though.

BBQ Tuna Fritters

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
This is an odd recipe. I like the flavor of barbeque sauce and I like the flavor of canned tuna. Together it doesn't work: it's way over the top barbeque sauce flavor, and I even cut it back to two tablespoons. You really can't taste the tuna. I wanted this to be good because it is very easy to make, but it misses the mark. I think canned tuna requires more delicate flavoring. In fact, this recipe would probably be better with no BBQ sauce, but then the name would have to be changed! You know what, just fry 'em up and serve with mayo mixed with a little dill instead.

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
Pretty tasty, but I find that it works best to double all the ingredients, except the pasta -- use about 3/4 lb. of linguine. Also leave out the salt -- the bacon makes it salty enough. Use just a little of the bacon drippings to saute the onion and garlic. Finally, toss in the bacon and cheese just before serving.

Tuna Curry in a Hurry

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Although I was skeptical before trying this recipe out, it turned out pretty tasty. Like others have noted, the sour cream flavor is a bit much. The next time I make it I wouls 1) cut the sour cream in half, 2) increase the curry and 3) Use two cans of tuna. Serving over rice is a good idea.

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
Hey, for what is is, this is the best. Sweet and sour sauce is not a sauce for any kind of "cuisine", but when you have a ten-year-old boy like I do, it's tops. It's basically an American sugar-coating for anything! I never follow the recipe exactly and it always turns out fine. If you have kids, slop this sauce on anything and they'll eat it!

Spinach Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
This is not an bad soup, but seems to be lacking in something. Usually, I can read a recipe and guage what is missing, but not on this one. I added a little fresh italian parsley from my garden to give it a little texture. Maybe something spicy to give it a little bite? I'm not sure.

Roasted Roma Tomatoes and Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
This makes a very tasty side-dish to serve with lasagna, or other Italian dishes. Super simple to make: takes about 5 minutes to prepare. Watch the tomatoes carefully near the end of their cooking so they get dried out. I like to sprinkle a small amount of parmesan cheese on them near the end of baking. The full cloves of garlic are really tasty: just don't eat this on a weeknight if you have a meeting to attend in the morning!

Fresh Salsa I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Not a bad salsa recipe, but I have a couple suggestions: 1) add some fresh cilantro. About 1/2 a bunch. 2) After blending everythihng together, add a couple of hand-chopped tomtoes for texture. 3) Add some lime juice: about a teasooon. Otherwise, a nice salsa for chip!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
After ordering this soup many times at restaurants, this recipe reproduces precisely what French Onion Soup is supposed to taste like. Look, French Onion Soup a challenging soup to eat: chunks of chewy cheese and soggy bread floating on top...but it's supposed to be that way. I often suggest additions or subtractions to a recipe, but here I suggest you stick with the recipe as is. I've made this recipe many times exactly as indicated and everyone loves it. Nice job. Easy to make. Tasty.

Brian's Favorite Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
I make a double batch at a time of this sauce. It freezes well and seems to actually taste better when re-heated on the stove. (Not microwave.) The recipe makes a delicious sauce without many changes. I usually add meatballs when it's nearly done and omit the sausage. Sometimes I increase the ceyenne pepper for more of a bite. I've added fresh mushrooms, black olives, and fresh tomatoes. They all work well. Also it REALLY benefits from a long simmer: I simmer it on very low heat for up to three hours and the flavor is drastically improved. Excellent recipe. But give it time to cook!!

Mixture for Meatballs, Meatloaf or Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
I have made this recipe time and time again over the past year or so; only now deciding to review it. I have only used it to make spaghetti meatballs combined with "Brian's Favorite Sauce", also on AllRecipes. I have worked out a simple preparation and can whip these meatballs up in short time. They are perfectly tasty meatballs. My changes: I use dried bread crumbs instead of soaked bread. I don't add onion, since it is in my sauce. Often I use canned parmesan cheese instead of romano. I don't measure out any of the ingedients; I just eyeball it and it turns out fine. This is a good, simple, flexible meatball recipe recipe.

Asparagus Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
Wouldn't change a thing. This is quite a tasty recipe. With so few ingredients, I was skeptical; assuming it would be bland. On the contrary. It's super easy, creamy and scrumptious. A perfect mid-week meal for the family that looks like a gourmet dish. My 8-year-old son and my wife loved it. I will make it again.

Restaurant-Style Chicken Tenderloins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
There is a lesson to be learned with this recipe: often times, the simplest concoctions are the best. I have made this many times and everyone always raves about it. I don't change a thing, except marinating it overnight, simply for convenience. It literally takes 5 minutes to prepare. It is good grilled, or simply fried up. I've even tossed the cooked chicken into a salad. Quite splendid.
