Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Great recipe, easy to make, but I would like to point out that the amount of graham cracker crumbs is in no way enough for a 13x9 pan (which is strange, because the rest of the recipe seems to be for that size except the crust). It's enough for a 9x9. So if you want to make it better, use at least 2 cups of crumbs (2.5 would be perfect I think) and I would use just a tiny bit more butter, not to scale because the way the recipe is originally makes for a VERY greasy crust and that's not great, nor does it hold together very well. Another big tip: premix all the ingredients that go on the crust in advance, then spread them over. It makes for a more uniform filling and easier to spread over the crust.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
My first time making chili, I wanted to find a recipe that would be simple but good. As soon as I mixed everything in the pot, I knew it was a good recipe because the smell just spelled "chili". I haven't tried making a lot of changes to it yet, in the future I will experiment. I cut the recipe in half because it was a trial portion, and this time I just added more cayenne (x3, I like spicy!), about a tablespoon of agave syrup (in addition to cane sugar instead of white sugar), and a few splashes of chipotle tabasco sauce. Also, some raw cocoa powder (about 2 tbsp) - I heard this does wonders for subtly enhancing the taste. I only used kidney beans because I prefer them to pinto. Next time I might try diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce because I do like thicker/chunky chili, plus fresh tomatoes might add an extra zing to it. I also browned the onions for about a minute before throwing the rest of the stuff in, I think it works well. The recipe worked great though, thank you!

Candy Cane Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Overall good but lists too much butter/shortening and too much salt. Fat starts to separate out and a teaspoon of salt is way too much for this recipe. You could taste the salt too much.
