Rainbow Citrus Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2003
This cake is FANTASTIC!! Here in Louisiana, it is sometimes hard to find recipes that are light enough to serve in the summer yet still presentable enough for any important occasion... I baked this one for my mom-in-law's retirement party, and there wasn't a scrap left! I'm here printing it again a year later to bake it for a baby shower I'm hosting... Here's something I did to decorate the cake: I stuck with the original recipe, because I like the delicate flavoring of the citrus fruits (I'm sure the oils makes it wonderful, but I like the light flavor!) and I candied orange, lemon and lime peels and used them to decorate the sides of the cake! It's a really easy way to add to the cake without overwhelming it! (Brandi, Baton Rouge, LA)

Mushroom-Stuffed Chicken Breasts in a Balsamic Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
My hubby and I have lost a bunch of weight, and we're always looking for new, tasty recipes that are within our caloric limits. This recipe totally exceeded my expectations! It was savory, flavorful and very, very good. I did six smallish chicken breasts. I never cook skin-on breasts, so I cut pockets and stuffed the mixture inside the breasts. I didn't use the food processor; I cut the mushrooms by hand. I had some left over, so I added it to the sauce I made from the pan drippings. This was AMAZINGLY good, and I didn't tweak the recipe itself really at all. I like to try it the way it is written first before I tweak it!

Chicken and Dressing Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
I almost never make a recipe without tweaking it a bit... I added sauteed onions, bell pepper and garlic and a can of mushrooms to the stuffing and I thoroughly seasoned the chicken with sage, onion powder, salt and pepper. I didn't have cream of chicken, so I used cream of mushroom with the cream of celery. This was very easy to make, even with the additions, and it tasted more "complete" with all the extras in the stuffing and the chicken turned out tender and flavorful. This one's a keeper, and I'll definitely make it again.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
These were very good, and very easy. I think the next time I make them, I'm going to add some mushrooms, and maybe some onions, possibly some wine with the bouillon, just to see how it works. Great "building blocks" recipe, though!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This is probably the single best recipe I have ever gotten off All Recipes! It is by far the best chicken'n'dumpling recipe I've ever used... My hubby ate himself into a stupor, and I even ate the dumplings, which I rarely do. Brava!!!

I love empanadas, and as someone always looking for healthier versions of my favorites, I was excited to find this one. They were great, and my family enjoyed them a lot.

Light & Tasty Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
We stayed briefly with my inlaws after Hurricane Katrina, and I took over the cooking while we were there. I used this recipe the first night, and my hubby and father in law asked for it again while we were there, and again when we stayed with them during Hurricane Rita a few weeks later. Great recipe!

Easiest BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This was fantastic! And really, really easy. My hubby's always suspicious of recipes that use ketchup, but he loved this. I added a little garlic, but otherwise left it alone, and it was fantastic.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
I moved and couldn't put my hands on my trusty chocolate chip cookie recipe when I wanted to surprise my hubby with a batch. I browsed AllRecipes until I found this one... And he loved them so much that this recipe has now replaced my old one!

Baked Chicken on Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This was very, VERY easy. I added sauteed onions and a little garlic to this, but it didn't really need it. I'll definitely make this again, and I'll enjoy adding new things to it to make it different... A great "building blocks" recipe.

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
I started making this before I realized that I didn't have enough ketchup so I substituted 1/3 cup of barbeque sauce for the missing ketchup. Then I realized I didn't have regular vinegar, so I had to use red wine vinegar. My family absolutely LOVED this recipe! I'd like to try it with regular vinegar, but I think I'll keep using a little bbq sauce with the ketchup. Fantastic!!
