The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Excellent! Thanks SMDAILEY and KELLY for the tips on using the parchment paper & the additions. I ended up using an extra 1 cup of sugar and extra 1 tsp of vanilla extract thanks for the suggestions. We loved them. I also added 1 tsp lemon extract to the dough. I may try orange next time as well on some. It is just enough to give a subtle taste to this cookie. I used the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe on this site. It is a perfect compliment to this cookie. Thank you so very much for a fun day of baking.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Great Tasting and Very Easy to Use recipe. I used lemon extract in place of the almond and just eyeballed the milk and syrup (I actually used less syrup I would say). It worked great and my cookies look so adorable. Thanks for the fun recipe.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Great muffins! Thank You! I doubled the muffin Recipe which made about 12 average size muffins. I kept the topping the same as written except used brown sugar in place of white. The topping is enough to cover a double batch. I also used frozen berries and dusted with flour. My family ate these up in one sitting. I am happy to reuse this recipe.

This recipe was very good. I am sure that I will continue to use it. Thank you for posting it. I am not a relish lover but still used some and am glad that I did. I did add 1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar to potatoes after draining the water off of them. and added 1 TBSP White Sugar to mixture. Garnished with boiled eggs and paprika. Used 1/2 mayo 1/2 miracle whip and my family loved it. Thanks again!

Chocolate Turtle Brownie Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Oh Wow! Yum! Yum! Where are the bakers? I can not believe this only had 2 reviews before mine. This is an awesome brownie :) If you are unsure don't be! This recipe is soooo simple and looks like it came from a bakery! The pecans were heavenly in this. I did not use caramel as I was out but I drizzled Hersheys Syrup right over the top and it was perfect! I did bake mine in a 9.5 inch glass pyrex pie pan instead of the spring form pan and it baked for around 40-45 minutes and came out perfect. What are you waiting for? This recipe is a keeper.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I took suggestions of others and improvised in my own ways as well. Wow! What a flavorful dish. I thought that this was packed full of flavor and was delicious. MY ALTERATIONS: #1 I doubled the recipe keeping cream cheese and worch.sauce measurments the same. #2 I also added Salt,Pepper,Garlic and since I only had one can of golden mushroom soup (and I was doubling) I used Cream of Chicken for my second can. You would never know. #3 Added 2 Heaping Tbsp Sour Cream Add A Bullion Cube Add 1/2 Packet of Onion Soup Mix #4 I also used chicken instead of Beef. I cooked my cubed chicken in a pan with 2 Tbsp Oil and seasoned it with garlic pwdr, onion pwdr, salt,pepper,cayenne and steak seasoning. The meat was a wonderful compliment to the sauce and egg noodles. I definitely will be remaking this dish. Thanks so much for the recipe and thanks to those that gave other flavor suggestions.

Hard Rock Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
Worked perfectly! Thanks for the great recipe. The last recipe I had tried used 4 cups of sugar and it was too sweet! I made cinnamon since I wasted my orange on the last failed recipe. I cant wait to try other flavors now. This was my second time making this type of candy but this was my first success. I bought a candy thermometer and it helped keep the guessing work and mistakes away :) My kids love it as well but asked if I could not make it spicy next time LOL so for those that want a lil spice but not hot maybe go to 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. My husband and I think this is just right though. I will try the 1 1/2 tsp for the kids next time. I did not use confectioners sugar to dust with. I also would definitely follow the recipe exactly and take the advice of others who said DO NOT STIR DURING BOILING. Thanks to those that mentioned it.

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Very Good and Simple Recipe! Thank you so much. My family all raved over this on Day 1 and Day 2 they wanted more (the leftovers). It was just as wonderful on the 2nd day along with some homemade rolls from a wonderful recipe on this site: Portuguese Sweet Bread I. I will be making this regularly. I changed a few things to our liking and to what we had on hand. I took the pepperoni and pulsed it in the food processor until I had little bits and I used breakfast sausage (what I had on hand) I also added onions (sauted with the meat), italian seasoning,garlic powder,salt & pepper. I also threw in some hot banana peppers that I pulsed in the food processor. Yummy! This was delicious :) Thanks again!

Meatballs in Apple Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
These were good. Tasted just fine but they did not go over well at my gathering. People tasted them once and never went back. Some never tried at all. The color could have been the problem lol. Not exactly a wowing color (apple butter color). I thought they were ok. I probably wont make again though as I ended up having to pitch some :(

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Very Good. My family loved it. I changed nothing other than tossed the blueberries in flour (I used frozen). I did have to bake it longer than suggested however (possibly due to the frozen berries). Thank You for the great recipe.

Venison-Bacon White Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This recipe as is is good. I think it can get a little better. I ended up tweaking slightly to what we had on hand and what we preferred in the Chili. This is a great base recipe. I used this recipe in a crockpot by adding all ingredients except the venison and some butter to cook it in and once cooked through I added salt and pepper to it and 1/3 cup flour to coat the meat and then threw that in the crockpot. I HATE the cinnamon and nutmeg in it though. I can still eat it but find myself not wanting much due to these ingredients. I even got nauseated when reheating it for the husbands lunch thermos this morning (due to the smell of that cinnamon and nutmeg in there) LOL apparently I am not a fan of these ingredients in this dish. I love the overall flavor beyond those ingredients and next time will simply Omit those. I did add a 28 oz can of petite diced tomatoes and 1/2 taco seasoning packet as well as about 2 TBSP Taco Sauce and about 8 diced pickled Jalepenos to the mix. I substituted dry northern beans (1 Cup) for the crockpot method instead of using canned. My family enjoyed this dish. I am new to eating venison so I have to say this recipe is great in that I didnt feel like I tasted a gamey flavor in our meat.

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
WOW! I dont know who said to add the chives and onion cream cheese but yummy! I also used the yukon gold potatoes as suggested and some extra milk and butter and garlic powder :) This was a great recipe. I made it the same day and kept warm but loved it. I think this is my new mash pot. recipe. I want to try it with cheddar cheese and bacon pieces next time :)

Rustic Autumn Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
My family loved this but we made it into a pie instead. I used double the pastry recipe and double the tart recipe and added to a pie dish and baked as I would a pie until done. It was a little more tart than I care for but very good. I would probably increase sugar to reduce tartness (I used 6 Granny Smith apples to make the pie) or use different type of apples. I will definitely make again as it was very good and theres not a bite left after the 2nd day :) Thank you so much. The pastry is very easy to make in the food processor.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Very Good! Husband raved over them. I know that if they had been on a grill they would have rocked but it was cold and I was looking for a good recipe for the oven and this was it. I had to make a homemade chile sauce since I didnt have any on hand and did not have rum (but used 1/2tsp rum exract) but hoping to make exactly as written next time minus the rum (personal choice). Very tasty. I enjoyed them more after they sat and rested and cooled off I think. The flavors seemed to have come together more at that point. Thank you for a great oven rib recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I thought I had rated this! I cant belive I hadnt rated this yet. I made this a long while back ago and I have to say this is the closet and easiest thing to homemade Chicken & Dumplings that I have tried. I was quite shocked at how well they came out honestly. Thanks for sharing. I will be making these again soon!

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Really different and very good. I dont like pumpkin pie but like pumpkin bread so I was hoping these would be something I could enjoy :) I was right. These are a nice change to cookies. I think the icing makes the cookie have just enough of what it needs to make it perfect for me. Thank you for sharing. I am a major cookie lover so this is going into my cookie recipe folder :)
