Wet Burrito

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
My family loves Mexican food, but I had never heard of wet burritos before. Ran across this recipe and decided to try it. I followed the ingredients list and instructions exactly, did not change one thing. They are quite huge, so it was more than 4 servings for us. They were a hit, and I will be adding this recipe to my cookbook. Thank you!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
I never was much of a tea drinker and didn't know how to make good tea. I was having to make tea for the family gathering for Christmas Eve and found this recipe. I followed the ingredients list exactly, but I changed the method a bit. I wasn't sure my glass pitcher could stand boiling water poured into it, so I boiled the water in a pan, turned it off, put in the pinch of baking soda and steeped the tea bags directly in the pan with the 2 cups of water. While it was steeping, I poured the cool 6 cups of water in the pitcher. When steeping time was up, I removed the tea bags and dissolved the sugar in the pan before pouring into the pitcher with the cool water. My grandson likes the full amount of sugar. I can do with a couple of tablespoons less. It's great tea and very smooth, not bitter. Thank you! Now I'm a tea drinker!

Italian Vegetarian Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
This was a wonderful main dish for our meal tonight, a tasty and much healthier alternative to ground beef, which we almost NEVER eat any more. Such a clean, "meaty" taste and an added benefit of fiber. My husband even gave it a thumbs up. The only things I did differently were to add about 1/4 cup diced onion in the skillet while browning the rice, and I used Romano instead of Parmesan, because that's what I had on hand. After cooking the rice and lentils, I did have to cook down the remaining liquid, as it wasn't as thick as it was supposed to be, but that was no problem at all. This is a keeper, thank you!

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I suggested to my grandson that we could make his birthday cake this year instead of buying one (He is 11 years old, 2010). For reasons unknown to me, he chose Red Velvet Cake, and I chose this recipe because of the nice picture and because he didn't want a cream cheese icing. Other than using only 2 tablespoons of food coloring (that is all I had) instead of 4 tablespoons, we followed the directions EXACTLY. He and his cousin (same age,11) who helped make this cake absolutely swooned when they tasted it. I agree. This was so much better than a store bought cake. Thank you, Eleanor. The cake was awesome. This will be a lasting memory.

Poppy Seed Dressing II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I'm the submitter of this recipe, and I haven't been here in a long while, but I was APPALLED when I read the recipe here. It is supposed to read ONE TABLESPOON onion juice, not a whole onion!!!!! No wonder some people said it was too onion-y! Honestly, I don't believe I submittied it that way, maybe a typo when Allrecipes posted it. So sorry it came out that way! It really is a great dressing. Additionally I've found it gets by very well with only 1/2 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup.

Rory's Most Wonderful Corn Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
This is a most wonderful cornbread variation, moist and cake-like. A great way to incorporate broccoli into the family's diet without their objections!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
This has been one of my favorite salads for a couple of years. I'm not a raisin fan, but in this salad, with the blend of the onion, the bacon, and the sweet-sour dressing, the taste is wonderful. The only thing I do differently is use pine nuts. I prefer the flavor of pine nuts, and they are larger and don't seem to stick to the bowl as much as the sunflower seeds do. I have even used sliced almonds as well.

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
Hi, all. I'm the Cathy who submitted this recipe, and I'm glad to be able to share it with those of you who have been enjoying it. It is still my favorite dressing. I just wanted to step back in and make a few comments for those who weren't satisfied. It was mentioned that the dressing tastes like biting into a plain onion, and that it was hot, and another used a red onion and not all the sugar. You will notice the onion ingredient says "1/2 a SMALL onion". This would be approximately 1/2 cup chopped, and please do use a mild white onion. The hot onion definitely makes the dressing hot and bitter. The kind of onion used will affect the flavor of the dressing. Another used just garlic salt and recommended not to use the extra salt. The recipe doesn't call for garlic salt but garlic powder, which has no salt in it. Yet another didn't use the onion at all, only an Italian seasoning packet. In my opinion, to write a review on a recipe requires you follow the recipe as written and not make substitutions, otherwise you are writing a review on the recipe as you changed it. I hope you continue to enjoy this fabulous dressing, and for those who didn't enjoy it, you might give it another chance using the instructions as written. Then if you don't like it, you'll be entirely justified in your opinion! Happy eating!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2002
Kelli, these are just great! I did as some of the others suggested and used the flaky biscuits divided into thirds. Also used only enough mayo to moisten. My picky teenage granddaughter, along with her mother and my hubby all gave them a definite thumbs up. No doubts what I'm bringing to the next Super Bowl party. Thank you!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
This is a great baguette recipe. Made it this afternoon to use for crostini for dinner. Super easy, and nice crispy crust. Followed the recipe exactly except for the egg yolk/water wash on top. I misted cold water in the oven several times the first 8 minutes of cooking. This is my first attempt at baguettes, and this is the recipe I'll keep. No point in looking any further. Thanks, Judy!

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
Oh, my! I have one word--YUMMMMMMM!!!! In order to add more fish to our diets, I was looking for a salmon something or other that would be at least tolerable, as neither of us care for salmon at all. I followed the recipe ingredients exactly except I halved it in case we didn't like it. No worries about that!! This soup is now a permanent addition to my recipe collection. Thanks, Kenulia!
