Garlic Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
Four stars for giving me a good idea and the basic recipe but I also changed it to give it more flavor and more sauce to go with all that pasta. Added more butter (just shy of a full stick) and some olive oil ( abt 3 tablespoons). Used 1/4 cup of white wine. Also added 1 teaspoon basil and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. And lastly about a 1/2 cup of light cream. It turned out so wonderful the Olive Garden couldn't have done better. It did remind me of something I'd had there.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
Terrific! I did adjust a bit because of my family's taste. I greatly reduced the sugar (to 1 Tablespoon)did not add oil at all, and I added an additional tablespoon of vinegar. I loved it! I think using the Miracle Whip instead of regular Mayo did the trick as well as the poppy seeds.

Easter Bread Ring

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
I actually came to All Recipes today looking for this recipe. An old friend used to make this for us when my kids were small and I haven't had it in years. After trying this, it's exactly what I was looking for! I did use less salt ( I usually do no matter the recipe). I had golden raisins and dates and sliced almonds on hand so I used those instead running to the store for the candied fruit. It turned out wonderful. I did have anise seed and I used it, and I was pleased with the taste. I did cheat and used my Kitchen Aid mixer instead of doing the work by hand. I started with the batter paddle and then switched to the dough hook for the ten minute knead. Do be careful about not adding too much flour as I feel that this is just on the border of being too dry. If you add a touch too much flour I suspect it will make a difference. Even so I was very pleased with the consistency and the taste, oh and the look of it too. I'd have taken a picture but we started tasting it and had trouble stopping so there is isn't much left, it was supposed to be for Easter. Oh well.

Wonderful Gluten Free White Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2014
I make bread for my little grandson who must eat Gluten Free. It's hard to tell it's gluten free, the taste is good. I've tried many other recipes and this is one of the best if not the best. I wrap each piece separately with plastic wrap and then but all the slices into a freezer bag so his mom can freeze them and take out at will. Now he enjoys PBJ's and grilled cheese like the rest of the kids.

Baked Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
I just realized I hadn't rated these and I'm about to make them for about the 7th time since discovering the recipe. Hubby and sons love them and so do I. We like to dip them in some ranch dressing. So happy to find a good taste without all the oil of deep frying. I can now have these more on a regular basis instead of the once in a great while of the deep fried ones. Good for the diet and more healthy. I do let the chicken marinate a bit in the sauce.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I used a tiny 12 hole Bundt cake pan ( a bit smaller than most regular cupcake pan holes. The recipe made 12 with the recipe as follows. I didn't have frozen spinach so I took about 2/3 of the fresh packaged spinach I had and cooked it in water with some chopped mushrooms. Drained the lot of it once it was cooked down, then followed the recipe as stated, I used Swiss cheese. I should mention that I did not have as much spinach into my batter as the recipe called for due to the fact that I was using fresh spinach cooked down, however I loved the way it came out and did not feel at all that there was not enough spinach once it was done. 350 degrees for only 25 minutes with the pan I had.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
Add me to those that loved it. Just prior to serving I put some of the remaining raspberry sauce on top. It looked scrumpsous and the taste lived up to the sight of it too. My thanksgiving company agreed with me. When next I wish to impress, I'll make it again.

Chicken Junk

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
One of my families favorites, this is an easy version. You open a lot of cans. I sometimes make rice to go with it.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
Excellent. Hubby likes them soft and chewy and these delivered. I did both, squashed them down and not (just before baking). I prefer the Not.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
I didn't want to use canned mushroom soup for a recipe as I was trying to cut the sodium, so I looked up how to make it. I tried this recipe and ended up eating most of it before hand, it was good. I did still use the remainder in the other recipe. It worked great. More trouble but I controled the salt content, I used a broth that was reduced sodium and then I didn't add additional salt as called for in this recipe. Tasted great. The other recipe came out just as great. I'm all for reducing the sodium in my recipes and this helped.

Homemade Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
I liked it and I will use it again. I changed it only because I only had one can of whole tomatoes in the pantry. What I did was to put them in the blender and made puree, then since I didn't have the other can of crushed tomatoes on hand I just reduced slightly the herb and spices as stated. Came out great.

Egg Foo Yung II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
First time I tried making egg foo young and it came out great. I made rice and had them over it so next time I will double the sauce. I did not add any meat. I did add about 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger to the recipe. Also I used my big fry pan and made one at a time but what happened was the 1/2 cup of egg mixture spread out too much making them thin. Next time I will still do the 1/2 cup per serving however I will try using a smaller fry pan in hope that they will come out a bit thicker.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
I whipped this up on the spur of the moment. I already had left over rice so that I wanted to use up so that made it quick for me. Loved it. Just the right sweet, and not overpowering soy sauce. It's a keeper.

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Delish! I will make this one again. What I did as per reviews: I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar in place of 1/2 cup of the white sugar. I had an orange on hand so I squeezed it for the 1/4 cup of orange juice mentioned in recipe. I did add an extra cup of diced apples. Lastly I drizzled it with a confectionery sugar mixed with a tad of water and some vanilla.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This was great, I used it to decorate a large chocolate chip cookie/cake. There was plenty with about a cup of frosting left over. I also used butter ( I never use margarine in anything). I will use this recipe again.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
It came out great. I used a pan with sides for two reasons. One was the over spill everyone was mentioning. The other was I wanted the cookie itself to have sides more like a cake instead of having side like a regular chocolate chip cookie. I decorated the cookie for a Birthday. I'm going to make it again today for my grand daughters Birthday, maybe I'll get more creative with some frosting on the top.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I had never done chicken wings before when I decided to try this recipe because of the rave reviews. I am adding my own rave review with 5 stars! These came out better than all the take outs we've had around our home, and better than or equal to what we've had out at a restaurant. When and if the mood stikes me again (I don't often fry anything)I shall use this same reciepe just as it is. Hubby and adult son thought they were the tops too!
