Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I'm not sure why I was sort of leery of cooking the meatballs right in the sauce, but I was. Boy, was I wrong on that one. They were excellent! I did have about 1/3 cup of ricotta I wanted to use so I threw that in the meatballs and only added 3 tablespoons of sugar. This will be the only way I cook meatballs from now on. Thanks so much!

Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This is absoultely delicious! After it cooled I tried a small piece and I wasn't overly impressed. I stuck it in the spare fridge out in the garage. I wasn't even sure if I should serve it or not on Thanksgiving. The next day I tried another small piece and I was dumbfounded. It was a whole different dessert. Straight out of the oven, the topping was all hard and crunchy. When I tried to cut it, it just sort cracked all over. Sitting overnight in the fridge totally improved the topping. It was one of the first to go on the dessert table. Thank you Bea!

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Everyone loves this! My family tends to go a little (a lot) overboard on special holiday dinners so we wind up making several pumpkin rolls so everyone has one to take home with all of the other leftovers we divide up. Thank you Libby's for another timeless classic.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Thank you for the tastiest prime rib recipe ever! After letting my 12 pound roast sit out for 2 hours, I studded it with fresh garlic. I added a teaspoon of herbs de provence to the other spices and rubbed it into the roast. I followed the cooking directions as written and after the second baking I checked the internal temp with an instant read thermometer. Because of the size of the roast I did have to cook it a little longer to get the temp up to 120. After resting for 15 minutes the outer cuts were medium rare and the middle was more on the rare side. I took a short cut and used a couple envelopes of McCormick brand of Au Jus. It was simple to swirl some beef around in the hot au jus for requests for a more medium piece of beef. This was so tender and so delicious that I see no point in cooking it any other way. Yum!

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
So rich and so good! I made mine carb friendly by using Splenda instead of sugar. I also left the brown sugar off the top of mine, but made the rest of the fam's with and we all loved it.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Excellent! I learned my lesson about adjusting recipes before I have even tried them. Based on many reviews I decided to add about 3 tablespoons of flour. I also baked at 400 for 15 minutes, then dropped the temp to 350 and loosely laid some foil over the top when I thought it was getting too brown. Thank you LEHOUX! My family thinks I am so cool, haha ha.

Chocolate Banana Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Yum!! I made this for a "Super Bowl" party. I didn't whip the cream for the top until an hour before I was ready to serve it. I garnished it with a few chopped pecans and some shaved chocolate. It was so pretty and so good! Everyone loved it! The next time I made it, I took it over the top by making the homade pie filling for "Double Chocolate Pie" which was enough for the two pies I needed. I continued with the recipe as posted and it was to die for!

Strawberry Refrigerator Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Everyone loves this one! It's so light and refreshing in the middle of summer. I chill my cake in the fridge while I'm preparing the strawberries and also used the handle of a wooden spoon to make big holes for the berries. I make this (and other poke cakes) often in the summer so I bought a clear plastic, ketsup type squeeze bottle and cut the end down so it has a very large opening. This makes it so much easier to fill the holes. It works great for cupcakes and layer cakes also. I store the cake in the fridge while I make the frosting. When making the frosting, I make the pudding first and allow it to thicken a bit before gently folding in an 8 oz container of cool whip. In the summer "Cool Whip" does sell a strawberry flavor, but if that isn't available, I add a bit of strawberry extract and a drop of red food coloring to the frosting because if you use the vanilla instant pudding without it, it's sort of yellow looking and not very pretty looking on a pink cake. Before frosting the cake I go back and refill the holes as the cake will absorb some of the berries. Try this one you will love it!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Oh yum! This was so good! I was sure that Alfredo sauce from a jar would be like canned gravy, not good at all. With the great reviews I decided to try it anyhow. I must have picked out the perfect brand of Alfredo because when it all came together it was simply wonderful. I used more garlic and regular mushrooms because that's what I had on hand. I changed the cooking directions a bit to suit my taste. After cooking the vegetables I removed them from the pan because I wanted my peppers to have a little crunch with the soft pasta. I cooked the shrimp quickly and removed them from the pan while I made the sauce. I used less cayenne because I wasn't sure if I would care for it. I made the sauce and adjusted the flavor with pepper flakes and more cayenne. When the sauce was hot and thick I added the pasta to warm and then the vegetables. Last I added the shrimp. I was amazed at how good the sauce turned out with the jar of alfredo. It was also a pretty dish with the red peppers and a sprinkling of fresh parsley. It is a rich dish so I won't make it weekly but I will make it often. I would be very proud to serve to company. Thanks JZELLER!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
So Good! I try to follow a recipe the way it's written but like everyone else I will adjust recipes a bit to suit our tastes. I happen to like a few chunks of potato in mine so I use less peas and carrots. I also added a few more spices that I like with chicken. Thank you Robbie Rice for a 5 Star recipe!

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
My search for the perfect chocolate pie is finally over! This is so good. The second time I made this I combined it with another recipe "Chocolate Banana Pie" I am not a fan of boxed pudding and this was the perfect answer. I needed 2 pies and combining it with the other pie recipe, it was more than enough for 2 pies. I followed the other recipe but used the filling for this pie instead of boxed pudding mix. I also didn't add the layer of whipped topping until I was ready to serve the pies. Chocolate curls and a sprinkling of chopped pecans on top of the whip cream made for a beautiful presentation. Thank you for a great recipe!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This is one recipe you really must try! Excellent ending for any Mexican themed dinner or anytime. If you use the Pillsbury Crescent Sheets it goes together really fast. I found if I melted a couple tablespoons of butter in the microwave and used a pastry brush, I could brush a thin layer of butter on the top crust. I mixed 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with about 2-3 tablespoons of sugar and lightly sprinkled it all over the top. I drizzled a couple of tablespoons of honey on the top and it was just perfect. Thanks again CandleB and allrecipes!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Great gift to give away at Christmas when you want to remember someone but not necessarily spend a lot of money. It's especially nice for your non-baking friends. It's a great cookie also. I simply change the amount of servings to 36 and bake 3 dozen at a time during Christmas. And you just have to love that name!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Thank you for a great recipe! Who cares about how authentic it is ... this is really good! The first time I made it as stated by the submitter and the second time I jazzed it up with more seasonings and a little red and green pepper for a little crunch. Either way it's really good, so thank you very much!

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
You just can't go wrong with this recipe. It has been around for a very long time and we all know why. It's pretty simple to prepare and it never fails to please. The only problem I run into when preparing it is, I can't seem to keep out of it!

Chocolate Billionaires

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Yum! I wanted to try something new for my gifts of "Christmas Goodies" that I'll give away this year, and these did not disappoint. I gave most it away at the Senior Center where I do volunteer work and they loved them. Then again, they always love it when I experiment in the kitchen and let them be my taste testers, haha. I used a small scoop sprayed with Pam to drop the candy. Last year I bought a Wilton candy fork to dip candy into chocolate with and it makes the job so much easier. I used my double boiler to melt the chocolate and was able to let the chocolate sit over the hot water while dipping the candy making it all so much easier. Thanks June

Moist Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Wow! Was this ever good! I don't know why I had to change it around without even trying it as written, but I did. I left out the water, added 2 tablespoons of olive oil and used dill weed because that's what I had on hand. Everything else was the same. This is now one of my favorite recipes. Thank you Nancy.

Calico Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Excellent, but far too sweet for our tastes. No big deal though, I just cut the sugar in half and it was so good. You can throw any beans you want in and it's always good. Family wants this at all the BBQ's. Thanks Kathy
