Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
I make these every year but the recipe needs a bit of tweaking, first start with 4 cups confectioners sugar, then add more as needed some days more seems to be needed and sometimes less is needed, if the dough is real sticky then add more but you don't want the dough to be too dry because then they won't hold their shape well and tend to fall apart, add parafin to the chocolate it gives it a better shine and holds better, if you don't they get soft fast, I also love to make these using Butterscotch chips, or peanut butter chips, I always have all threee on hand every christmas. It just wouldn't be Christmas without all three varieties of Buckeyes.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
My mother used to make this from a recipe book that she picked up at a garage sale once called Cooking With Coca-Cola. She lost the biik 12 years ago when she moved so when I saw the recipe I was so excited. My mom used it on ribs, chicken, pork chops and any thing else she could think of in the book it was called Cola Barbeque, thank you for posting this wonderful recipe I can get my five year old to start eating meat again.

Mayonnaise Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
When the kids saw my putting mayonnaise in the bowl they all though I was crazy and refused to try it but I convinced them to give it a chance, and they loved them, especially with Wedding Cake Frosting From this site. There are very few left as I made 2 dozen cupcakes and they barely got one done before they wanted another one, this is similar to the recipe my mom used when I was a kid the only difference I think is growing up all we had in the house was Miracle Whip and even though I still use Miracle Whip my husband likes Hellmans, so I used that. My daughter likes alot of chocolate so she said that the recipe could have used more Cocoa but my husband is not a huge fan of Chocolate and said they were perfect, choclatey but not to choclatey and overly sweet like the store bought cake mixes. I will definately use this one again it is a big hit at my house. Thank you for the wonderful Recipe.

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I wanted a softer frosting for cup cakes I halved the recipe, and then used only 2 cups of powdered sugar, and didn't have to use any milk and it was great, I did make sure to beat the shortening and butter together until they were light and fluffy like the other reviews said. I had 2 dozen cupcakes and more than enough frosting for all of them. If I had wanted a stiffer frosting for piping I could have used more powdered sugar, with excellent results. Thank you for a great buttercream frosting recipe, I will definately use this one again and again.

Corny Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I did like the others and cut the oil in half, I also left out the onion because my son hates onion, and, added 1/2 c more sugar because we like ours sweet but I was scared when I put the batter into my baking dish due to the fact that it seemed alot soupier than many of the corn bread recipes that I have tried but it set up beautifully in only 20 minutes in the oven, I just hope it tastes as good as it looks. It does taste as good as it looks the kids devoured it.

Tuna Salad with Cranberries

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
My youngest two love plain tuna salad but I wanted to shake things up a bit so when I told them that I was making tuna salad they started to pulll out ingrediants when I told them that I didn't need certain items my three year old said "No eggs and cery (celery) I no eat" and my five year old insisted on onion in it, so I added three hard boiled eggs, 1 very small onion and 1 stalk of celery chopped, and another tablespoon of Miracle Whip we don't use mayonaisse. It was great, my 13 year old refuses to eat tuna or anythhing with cranberries in it, there was 1/2 day of school today so we were about done eating lunch when they came home and she was "Starving" because it was tuna sandwiches today at school, I had 1 sandwich left on my [late and she asked if she could have a bite before I could tell her what it was she had grabbed it and wolfed down the sandwich even though she isn't fond of wheat bread when I asked her what she thought she said it was great even though it was on wheat bread and wanted to know what it was. She was surprised when I told her that her two least favorite foods were in it. Thank you for this recipe now I can make tuna salad sandwiches for all of my kids without my 13 year old having to eat something else.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
I first tasted this recipe when my sister-in-laws boyfriend made it and he never gives out recipes. Every recipe I tried just wasn't it, after he passed away I figured I'd never get a good recipe, this was THE RECIPE exactly like his, except we use Miracle Whip instead of Mayonaisse. Even my picky 3 year-old loves this dip. Thank you for the help
