Raisin Tea Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2015
"Can't talk. I'm raisin tea biscuits. Gotta concentrate so it doesn't turn into raisin hell!" These were definitely delicious, easy to make and no one raised hell about them so I guess that means they enjoyed them. Although it might have been because the egg I used had two yolks in it. Must've been twins. Twins make everything more delicious apparently. Anywho we tried these with jam, honey and cinnamon roll glaze and the winner, by far, was the cinnamon roll glaze! If you go that route be sure to use a thicker glaze so it doesn't soak into the biscuit as much.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
These are great! I LOVE the Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies better than any other brand. This is my first time making the bar version and it worked pretty well. The only thing is I used a 9x13in pan for a thicker cookie which drastically increased the cooking time to at least 40 minutes. Also JDLAMBERT is right...the secret is all in the butter. While making the drop cookie version I once melted the butter too much (it was liquid) and the cookies turned out very spongy and cake-like. Couldn't figure out why until it kept happening every time I made the cookies. If you melt the butter it doesn't cream well with the sugar. You want to achieve a fluffy, airy texture like scrambled eggs when you beat the butter and sugar together. So now what I do is get the butter out first thing and set it on the preheating oven to soften a bit (don't use the microwave). Usually it is still cold by the time I'm ready to use it but using a solid stick of cold butter is better than using liquified butter because you can't achieve the same scrambled egg consistency with butter that is too soft or melted.

Carrot and Raisin Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This is excellent! My mom used to make carrot raisin salad all the time when I was younger. I omitted the brown sugar and added 1 8oz. can of crushed pineapple and 1 cup of coconut for a tropical summertime treat that's worthy of a picnic!

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This is good! I make it with rotisserie chicken. It's really flavorful and a great way to use up any leftover rotisserie chicken! It's pretty basic and works well with many variations such as waldorf chicken salad with apples, grapes and walnuts.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This is really good and super simple to make! LOVE IT!! Just don't forget to season it with salt and pepper at the end! I did the second time around and it didn't taste the same...it had a stronger sausage taste or something.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
These things have GOT to be illegal in 49 states!! They're just too good to be true!! I followed pretty much all the reviews but got frustrated after awhile! There are just so many reviews and so many changes! So here's another one for ya: I reduced the amount of sugar to 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown since people were saying they were too sweet (turned out perfectly). I also used Pillsbury pre-made pie crusts instead of biscuits.
