American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2002
My family of 6, consisting of 5 finicky men all loved this lasagna, just when they thought I couldn't improve on my own I try this and they were flabergasted! Only two things I changed. One was I subed italian sausage for 1/2 the hamburger and second WAY TOO MUCH SALT! I cut the salt out completely and nobody noticed! There is plenty of salt in the cheeses and the diced tomatoes to suit our tastes. Stopped by to correct my spelling...and to tell you all we still love this and I make only this recipe now.

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.

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.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2014
My first time making Toffee and it came out perfect! I can hardly believe I did it. I discovered that my candy thermometer has little hint settings on it, my toffee was cooked exactly when it said "soft crack (which by the way was at the temp specified in the recipe). I did the ice water test a few times on the way, noticing how it was a bit harder but still soft along the way, I knew it was getting there, when it was ready I Knew it using the ice water test. I did stand over it for the 15 minutes or whatever time it took noticing it getting darker and stirring, keeping watch over the thermometer. I used a tad over medium heat to cook it on my electric stovetop. I am so pleased with the result I can't wait to give it away. (I gave some to my son and his girlfriend as they stopped over and they loved it).

The Best Ugly Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Like the title says, it was great, tender. but it fell apart when I turned it upside right to cut. Didn't bother anyone that it was ugly as I cut the meat and put on a platter to serve. Everyone loved it. I'll do it again.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I love it and make it many times throughout the year. The dressing is what makes it stand out. I do usually reduce the amount of sugar. When in the mood I add strawberries and some feta cheese.

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.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2002
The family goobled them up! This is the first time I've made kababs on the grill, the only problem I ran into was turning them over. the tend to stick to the grill/cage and they pull apart when turned. I'm going to invest in a special grate for the grill so I can just flip the grate/cage next time.

Emily's Famous Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
My family (of 5 men) loved these. In the past I've always made Sloppy Joe's with store bought packaged spices or from a can. What a wonderful and delicious differnce home made makes! I re rated this today because I'd only given it 4 stars previously. I realized as I was re reading my reviews, I make this every time we have Sloppy Joes. Still the best and family still love it.

Vegetable Beef Minestrone

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
My aunt called my attention to this recipe about 2 years ago, once I tried it I've made it again and again. Just made some today, can't wait to have it for lunch and then again for dinner. I usually do add more liquid, sometimes anohter can of stewed tomatoes, sometime I even add green beans. Always I cruch up some nacho chips on the top of my bowl. Love it.
