Inside-Out Manicotti

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
I made this according to the recipe, but ended up using 12 oz pasta when I saw how much of the cheese mixture there was. At the last minute, I also decided to stir the pasta and cheese mixture together, with the sauce layered in the middle and on top and with extra mozzarella on top. We all liked this pretty well, but the nutmeg was quite strong and obtrusive. If I make this again, I would cut the amount of nutmeg in half so it would just add a little bit of pleasant nutmeg flavor. Update: I bumped my rating up another star to 4 stars because the nutmeg flavor balanced out after a day in the refrigerator and the leftovers were actually really good! I'd still cut back on the nutmeg next time to 3/4 tsp, though. I'd also like to note that the sauce recipe is quite good for something so quick. Usually I only like spaghetti sauces that have simmered for a few hours. I doubled the sauce part of the recipe (and added extra basil) and froze half of it for quick dinners of spaghetti later. It didn't take any more work, so why not?

ABC Pudding - Avocado, Banana, Chocolate Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I made this exactly as directed, but added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. It turned out very good and the vanilla was a good addition. We couldn't taste the avocado at all, but love avocados and wouldn't have been disturbed even if we could taste it. I'm not a big fan of bananas, but really liked it anyway. Will definitely make this again, what a nice treat that even non-vegans like us enjoy!

Pink Stuff

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
This fruit salad is shamefully good. I've been making it a couple times a year (for holidays) for almost a decade, thought I'd written a review before! I leave out the pecans, use an 8 oz container of Cool Whip (because I've never, ever seen a 12 oz one- it's good either way), and add a lot more fruit. Most recently I made this for Christmas and for the fruit used the 20 oz can of crushed pineapple, a 25 oz can of peaches (diced), a 25 oz can of pears (diced), a 16 oz can of fruit cocktail, and a small can of mandarin oranges. The exact and type of fruit doesn't really matter, I just tossed in everything in the pantry and it was wonderful as always :) Not fancy by any means and definitely a dessert rather than a salad! My in-laws really enjoyed it, too, but it's pretty ugly looking.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
This is a great chocolate cake recipe! Absolutely nothing to complain about. It's easy to make, stays moist for several days, and most importantly, it tastes very good. The recipe is perfect exactly as written.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I made this tonight with two boneless chuck roasts that totaled 5 1/2 lbs. This is the FIRST time I've actually had a pot roast in the crock pot turn out right, the cut of meat you use is very important and boneless chuck roast is perfect for this. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out very well. The meat was extremely tender and the gravy was very flavorful. It made a LOT of gravy, too! Unfortunately, the gravy was extremely thin. A similar recipe here on AllRecipes ("Pot Roast in Foil") uses only a tiny bit of water and the gravy is a better consistency. Next time I'll only add 1/2 C water. Regardless, we really enjoyed this pot roast! Also, I used a gravy ladle and very carefully spooned off more than half a cup of fat from the surface when the roast was done cooking!

Easy Cheddar Biscuits with Fresh Herbs

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I used thyme (realized at the last minute I didn't have rosemary, SAD!), a bit more sour cream, a full cup of cheddar because we love cheese, and a bit more milk because it looked dry. Also sprinkled the tops of the biscuits with extra cheddar instead of the egg wash. The result was really good! Very soft and tender, herby and the cheese on top was the perfect touch. Some other reviewers complained of dry biscuits and I think the extra sour cream, cheese, and milk stopped that from being an issue with my biscuits. Perfect with Easter dinner and will definitely be made again and again. I'd love to try it with homemade baking mix.

Shrimp Egg Foo Young

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I had to use shredded cabbage because our store doesn't sell bean sprouts and added a fifth egg after reading the reviews. For the sauce, I had to add an extra tablespoon of soy sauce so it would have more flavor and an extra tablespoon of cornstarch so it would be thicker. These little changes aside, this recipe is GREAT! It turned out so well, my husband and I both LOVED the egg foo young and the sauce. I will definitely make it again! Thanks for submitting the recipe, Karen :)

Bread Machine Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I used a bit less parsley and added 1/2 t onion powder, 2 t dried basil and 1/2 t oregano, then needed to add an extra 2 T water because my dough was a bit dry. Bread turned out great though! We thought it was pretty garlicky. Not as garlicky as bread made with garlic butter spread on top, but the garlic flavor was definitely there. The herbs I added helped too since they added a lot of flavor, but it would have been good just as written as well. Dried parsley is more for color than flavor, anyway. Will definitely make this again!

Jimmy Dean Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
I made this for breakfast on Christmas and halved the recipe since it's just 2 of us. It was okay. We ate it as well as the leftovers, but it won't be a repeat. The egg mixture so thoroughly soaked the bread that my husband didn't even realize there was any bread in it! The casserole did not taste soggy per se and it wasn't wet, it was just softer than we prefer and almost mushy. This recipe is worth repeating though with less milk (for a full recipe I would cut the milk down to 2 cups) and maybe cooked, diced potatoes instead of the bread. That sounds yummy! I'll bet the suggested additions of mushrooms, tomato, and green onion would be really good, especially if you saute the mushrooms first.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
VERY good cookies! They are a nice, crunchy shortbread, not soft, which some people (like my husband) do not appreciate. I love the hint of almond flavor in the dough. I rolled some of the balls in sugar before filling them with jam and that was nice, especially since I chose to leave off the glaze. My tips are to fill the thumb print with more jelly than you think you will need, and bake until the cookies are light golden so they're firm enough to hold up to the wet jam. Made mine 12 hours ago and they're still just as crisp as they were with no signs of sogginess from the jam, but that may change. Regardless, these are definitely a repeat for me and maybe next time I will try the glaze!

Laura's Famous Aebleskiver

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Made these for breakfast today and they were great! My first time eating aebleskiver, but they turned out very well. I followed the recipe exactly except found you got the nicest, roundest aebleskiver if you fill the pan almost to the top. Put a teeny tiny piece of butter into each hole between pancakes so they don't stick. You can keep them warm in the oven until they all finish cooking. This recipe made more than 5 people could eat, including 2 young guys who can eat a ton.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
My husband and I really did not care for this, which was a bit of a surprise. I thought he would love it- corn, cream cheese, and lots of butter! But it was a total flop, neither of us could finish our tiny servings, and I actually ended up dumping the leftovers straight into the trash can. We didn't hate it and it certainly wasn't terrible, it was just very unappealing. The tangy flavor of the cream cheese combined with the corn was not very good. I added more sugar and that actually helped, but not enough to make us like it. It was also just so creamy and rich and the sauce so thick. We don't shy away from trying rich foods usually, but this one just turned us off. Sorry! Next time I will try creamed corn with corn, a bit of cream, a bit of butter, salt, a bit of sugar, and a quick hit with my immersion blender just to chop up some of the kernels. Oh and if you DO want to make this recipe, know that you basically just need to cook it long enough to heat the ingredients through and then stir everything together. The corn starts getting chewy if it cooks past that stage.

Pineapple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I used more pineapple juice and added ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. It turned out great and I think the seasonings helped. We both loved it! Makes a good amount of sauce and is perfect over rice.

Texatini

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This is quite good, but the sweet and sour mix is pretty strong and makes it very sweet. I suggest swapping the amounts of orange juice and sweet and sour mix for maximum deliciousness :) Will definitely make again!

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
These noodles are decent and are nice and creamy when hot, but the soy sauce flavor is too strong. I suggest using just 2 T soy sauce and adding 2 extra T hot water. You may need to add a little salt if you do this, but hopefully the soy won't cover the other flavors. Will definitely try this again with a few more tweaks because it has lots of promise. Oh and whole wheat spaghetti worked with it really well, you couldn't really tell it was whole wheat.

Shortbread Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I made this and left out the baking powder because I was afraid it would puff up too much. Even without the baking powder, the crust was so thick that there was no longer space in my 9 inch pie plate for the pie filling and I had to use a different recipe. Sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, cut it into wedges, and called it shortbread cookies instead. Tasted good, but was impractical as a pie crust. I think it would work nicely as a crust if you cut the recipe down by a third.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I followed the suggestion to emulsify the dressing in my blender, and the texture was great! I'd never done that before but definitely will with other oil vinegar dressings. The flavor of the dressing was good, but holy moly, it was like being punched in the face with vinegar. We love vinegar and I regularly serve cucumber salad made with just sliced cucumbers floating around in balsamic vinegar (with a pinch of sugar and salt), so I'm not sure what the problem was. My husband had tears rolling down his cheeks! In 6 months or so (once we have time to use this batch up a teeny bit at a time, I scaled it down to make 2 1/2 C using 1 1/3 C red wine vinegar and 1 C oil), I will try again but swap the amounts of oil and vinegar because I think this has potential to be amazing dressing.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I tweaked this a bit, but the only significant change was that I needed to add quite a bit more mayonnaise for it to hold together and not be dry. It's really good though and surprisingly similar to tuna. I will definitely make it again, what a clever idea :)

Piquant Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
This is SO good! No meatball recipe that I've tried has come close to being as good as my mom's, but these meatballs are very good. Nice to have 2 options for meatballs since Mom's recipe includes 1 1/2 C parmesan cheese and would be a bit odd in a recipe with this kind of sauce. Speaking of the sauce, it too is wonderful. I've made basically the same recipe with grape jelly instead of cranberry sauce and we like the cranberry sauce based one better. Tip: use a potato masher to mash up the cranberry sauce, things will go much faster that way!

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
My only change was to add 1/2 t salt and mine was done cooking in 50 minutes. It turned out great, just how I hoped! Not as rich and wonderful as my grandmother's which features heavy cream, but very yummy and much lighter so more acceptable to cook on a regular basis. To those who have only had "corn pudding" made with cornbread mix, this is quite different. It has a custard-like texture from the eggs and is somewhat sweet. This is a real corn pudding and in my opinion much better than the corn bread mix based ones. Thanks :)
