CARNATION® Famous Fudge

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I made the CARNATION® Famous Fudge yesterday and it never hardened. Also the sugar didn’t dissolve thoroughly and it was grainy. I used the microwave method. I didn’t notice if anyone else mentioned that when they said how successful theirs came out. I have another microwave fudge recipe which always comes out good maybe I should use some of those directions. It takes one can of condensed milk, 1 T butter and 1 and a half packages of chocolate chips. Stir these together and cook in MW oven for 5 minutes. Then take out and stir, if chocolate chips are not melted. (Or you can put back in oven for 1 more minute.) Add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour into buttered 8x8” glass pan. I used foil in the bottom of the pan in the new recipe but it wasn’t really necessary as I have to scoop out the fudge with a teaspoon in order to eat it. Next time I will cook for 5 minutes and maybe add more chips. I put in a cup of chips which should be 8 ozs. But my package had 11.5 ozs in it. I will definitely try this again but with slightly different directions.

Potato Pancakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I was looking for a recipe for potato pancakes like my mother made years ago. Several of the reviews said to "grate" the potatoes and not shred them but they didn't mention how to grate them. Use the smallest side of your box grater. The potatoes should be like a mush. Then grate the onions the same way using regular onions not green. Putting the grated potatoes in a sieve was a new one for me but sounds like good advice if you will also press down on the potatoes after they have dripped off on their own. My mother fried them in bacon grease so I guess she got more flavor in them that way. She cooked them in an iron skillet. I have never made them successfully like she did because I think I'm afraid to get the pan hot enough. The four pictures of this recipe all showed shredded potatoes. If I ever make them successfully, I will send you a picture.

Corned Beef Omelet

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Has anyone tried canned corned beef instead of fresh cooked? I have trouble chewing corned beef, it's never tender enough. But it was delish with this recipe.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I made these muffins yesterday. They didn’t come out exactly right but it was my fault. I wanted to use buttermilk instead of whole milk but I didn’t have any in the house so I used a powdered buttermilk combined with water. Big mistake!! I put frozen blackberries in because that’s all I had. I also used a regular muffin tin because I don’t own the jumbo kind. I got 18 muffins from the mix by filling each cup ½ full. The muffins rose just below the level of the paper cups. In the first 12 muffins I forgot to add oil. I did add about 2 ozs of applesauce but that wasn’t enough, evidently. I also forgot to put the topping on the first 12. I made cinnamon and sugar and then put it on after they came out of the oven. Another big mistake!! I put some oil in the last of the dough and made 6 more. I put the topping on them and they came out alright except they weren’t very big. The paper cups seem quite small. The cups in the pan seemed larger. I have one question I ’d like someone to answer. When you use the paper cups do you spray oil inside the paper cups? The dough sticks to them pretty good. I also reduced the baking powder as you would for high altitude. Another big mistake!! Next time I will use real buttermilk, the full amount of baking powder, and put more dough in each cup. I ’ll use oil instead of using any applesauce. The texture of the first batch was coarse and the second with the oil added was fine textured. But they tasted go

Chocolate Waffles I

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
For some of the people who said they couldn't taste the chocolate flavor, try using chocolate milk instead of white milk and also use the Hot Chocolate Sauce that came with the Gingerbread Waffles. Update: I made these waffles this morning and used a European Style of Cocoa, chocolate milk, and 1/2 t. cinnamon, to enhance the chocolate flavor. I don't think I really needed that cinnamon. The cocoa was strong enough added to the chocolate milk. They were really cholatety. But next time I will try it with white milk and no cinnamon to see if that cocoa is strong enough.

Malted Milk Waffles

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
My wafflles turned out GREAT! I was in a bit of a hurry so didin't separate the eggs and just put them in whole. The waffles still turned out very fluffy. I also used buttermilk powder and water instead of fresh buttermilk. You put the buttermilk powder in with the dry ingredients and then put the water in with the wet. You don't make up the buttermilk first. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I've never had Chai tea before so I don't know if mine tastes as it should. I halved the recipe as I didn't know if I would like it. I haven't as yet run it through my food processor. I thought it was already fine but maybe I am wrong. I just tasted like milk with some spices in it. I didn't cut down on the sugar but it wasn't very sweet anyway. I went to a health food store and bought the cardamom by the tablespoonful. It's much cheaper that way and is much fresher. I didn't add the extra spices because on my copy of the recipe which I printed on 3/21, it didn't mention them. I will try adding them now.

Lemon Barbeque Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This recipe sounds terrific!! I have a type of muffin pan that makes small loaves instead of round muffins. I'm going to use this. I print the recipe and then look at the reviews and make notes on the side of the copy of the recipe. I would like to suggest to the person responsible for this web site that they put high altitude adjustments on it. We don't all live at sea level.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I reviewed this recipe before I made it by telling how I’d do it in a Microwave Oven. I have since done it and will tell you the results. First, I used ground buffalo but only 1 lb. I used oatmeal instead of cracker or bread crumbs. Big mistake, will try bread crumbs next time. I reduced the water, another mistake, as you need to use more in a microwave. I used barbeque sauce instead of ketchup and mixed it with the brown sugar and put it on top. I also used the onion soup mix instead of an onion. I’ll try the onion next time. I will also save out some sauce to put on the meatloaf when eating. I cooked it for 20 minutes in the microwave. That was too much time. It was done but the top got kind of hard. Hope this helps anyone who tries the microwave method.
