Addictive Texas Trash

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Totally loved this recipe. Great flavor, not to spicy on our end, with my kids being raised & from Texas...it is rather good. But for the love of Pete, hahahaha one needs to know, look at the size of the recipe, it's as huge as Texas too ;-) I never laughed soo hard because I saw the ingredients, went and bought ths stuff, not even looking at how big, each ingredient was...It was the funniest thing with my family, watching me go from one size bowl to a bigger one, then a bigger one then that and finally trying to find a pot or pan big enough to get all the ingredients in, in order to mix it all together. Glad no one snapped photos of me, standing on top of a dining room chair, over the Turkey Roaster, mixing it all by hand and saying the heck with it(funny way) and using the roaster to bake the whole batch in, all together verses, dividing it out in foil pans and clogging up the use of my oven...if you have a Nesco Roaster, it's perfect size and the recipe came out excellent!!! We will make this again and again. My husband thanks you. One thing I think I'll do next time, which is not a biggy, is leave out the Cheerios, those were a little tender soft, but it's not that big of a deal to give the recipe a 4 star, We sooo likey!

Ostakaka (Swedish Custard)

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
well...I'm not a fan. Sorry, I was excited about this recipe and since 4% cottage cheese is all I buy, I thought the ingredients would work well. Obviously it didn't. While easy to follow, the raw mix tasted rather nice. Yes, I'm one to taste something with raw eggs in it, I don't apologize for that, I totally need to know, if the flavor seems to be good. And it was. As I followed to a T, placed in the dish and put in the oven, I looked eagerly in the window of the oven, pacing back and forth, the smell seemed suttled and looked like it was right on track, but the baking took longer to get completely brown on top over an hour and a half, so I pulled it out, waited until it cooled. Used a cutting circle for the center(for presentation) and proceeded to scoop out a corner for tasting,but to see all this water like substance pouring out into the spot I scooped out & defungled over my dismay, it was just gushing with fluids. I thought ok?! tasted the portion I scooped, it was a bit odd in flavor & texture. Hubby also tried it and said, tastes like weird cheese. Yes, okay that's the thought as well, just not out loud. Each one of my kids, said, "we don't like it. What is it?" Needless to say, I went back and looked & looked over the recipe a dozen times, thinking what is wrong with this recipe, there is no water in it, other then in the cottage cheese..possibly should have strained the cottage cheese with cheese cloth 1st? Not sure, won't make again. Sorry.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
After making this batch twice, here's my advice...1. don't add 3 1/2 cups of marshmallows~~way to much and doesn't help the overall binding of the recipe, 2 cups is perfect. 2. the butterscotch/peanut butter mix, needs to cool slightly before for adding to the noodles and marshmallows, the marshmallows melted like crazy, making the recipe looks webby, hard to spoon out in small portions and not appealing...Suggestion: combine all ingredients, leaving out the marshmallows until all is combined then add to the mix so it ensures the marshmallows stay intack. My 1st batch was just horrible and followed it to a T, it resulted in not soo good or appealing treats and was disappointed at the marshmallow stringy-ness everywhere. 2nd batch way better as I made completely sure, to reduce the marshmallows, allowed the mix to cool a few minutes before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. With in mind you should have a successful batch.

Reindeer Snack Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
We liked this and it was totally easy to make, I like recipes like this. As not in my favor when getting the simple ingredients for this recipe at this time of year....shelves were empty. SO subbing Cheddar Bugles for the regular and the Duo Cheez-It's for the plain...are the adjustments I had to make...not by choice. But it still worked. I could say this could use some salt or garlic powder added at the end would be really good, not much but just a little. And knowing how well this recipe worked and the family liked it, I think personally using cheddar bugles, I would reserve the cheddar bugles(or put aside) follow through the rest of the recipes as written and add the cheddar bugles after words to get that cheesy flavor. But again, good recipe, good flavor.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
For me, this didn't hit the spot of a macaroon I was tasting in my mind. This was easy to make, super simple, but I found them to be to extremely sticky and wet and when they baked, they spread. While the kids liked them, I found them okay.

One Two Three Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
Normally, I don't look at reviews, but in this case I did after I made one batch. There is 2 things wrong with this recipe during the 1st round. #1, when melting 1/2 cup of butter with the semi-sweet chips it was very oil like(super shiny), so I proceeded to mix the frosting with the chocolate mix and to this I did follow to a T, it looked not gritty but not super lumpy either, like it didn't bind well, I checked it with a finger test and it wasn't either, just looked it but when chilled you could see whiteness over the top of the batch indicating too much butter. #2, by buttering a 9x13 pan and pouring the mixture into it...made the batch spread rather thin, the batch thickness was barely 1/2 inch thick. Wrong size pan for such a small batch, this is best utilizing an 8x8 size pan, nothing any larger. Now having said that, I looked at the recipe again and then the reviews, consulted a friend and we agreed, while it tasted more of chocolate frosting and tasty, this was slightly a miss. I proceeded with a 2nd batch that I decreased the batch to 1/4 cup of butter...used an 8x8 pan and it was a complete and utterly successful. Looking and tasting much more like a rich fudge, then the 1st batch. It was far better then the 1st batch as written. Still quick and easy-peasey, do take the suggestion of others and myself, decrease the butter to half as written and use a smaller pan. And you will come back to this easy recipe again and again.

Cranberry Chicken III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
The recipe was great! The flavor was suttle to me and I'll make again. It will totally be on the grilling rotation. Plan on doing this with plain chicken breast and trying whole cranberry sauce next time to see which way is better...thank you though ;-)

Gluten Free Rice Chicken Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
This was fabulous! The recipe itself was very delicious and savory. Could see making this again. Husband said he's had it before and I giggled because I'd never made this recipe before and it's a really good verison on Rice-a-roni, but totally worth making. And I mean totally. Will be making for Christmas dinner this year for the non glutens in my family ;-) TY

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
While excited about this recipe but still on the fence...I went forth. 2 of my children liked this, my son didn't, my husband said the bacon was good but the green beans were off putting. I had to agree as well. The sweetness added to the beans was totally wrong for us. Sugared green beans just wasn't right. Won't be making this recipe, believe it should be savory....not sweet. Sorry, won't be making these again. NOT with brown sugar.

Savory Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I can't rate this very well. I myself could only take a small bite....In that bite it was not right and was off putting. While 2 of my daughter's tried in and said it was sweet like an apricot, I was like what? the flavors that are combined with the squash, are not up to par with the pairing with the squash. The squash's sweetness is overpowering and you couldn't taste anything else. I didn't like this at all and neither did my husband and son. Sorry followed to a T and won't be made again, my apologies.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Not a bad through together in a pinch and don't want to do a lot of slaving over the stove recipe. My husband and I liked it, while it was just a tad on the powerful spicy side for our children, however I used up some cooked chicken verses the can and just measured out the amount stated in the recipe to match. Can see making it again.

Southwestern Cauliflower and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
I thoroughly loved this soup, made it twice. The 1st time I had to sub regular colby jack mix for pepperjack for the company I was serving and used seasoned potato flakes that I had on hand. The 2nd time I made it, I used the nacho cheese blend that is made from a local company with the pepperflakes and cilanto already in it...man both times, top notch. The one thing I like about this recipe is, that it may look like a cream based soup...without the cream persay and the potato flakes addition. The potato flakes help skip the dislike part on liquid separation in the recipe. Without the cream, a lot of times I see the liquid separating from recipes and makes the recipes look watered down, this nice little step of adding the potato flakes takes that irraition I get right out the window. I might have to use that trick in a few different recipes that I love. Great addition to winter weather soup rotations for sure and soo simple to make. Thank so much, my family truely loves this recipe.

Basic Brine for Smoking Meat

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I have never ever brined like this before. Marinading meats yes, soaking them in sugar, salt and water...no. I had been debating for years to do so and stuck to my guns and did. This was the 1st recipe I tried and decided to make 2 chickens opposite soaking methods and then smoke them...well as the voters in the family had it...the brine won. And in that I'm pleased to say I'll be brining again thank you. It was simple and yet super easy. I kept to the recipe but as I see the recipe can be built up on with layers of flavors. I'm impressed by the result of the mmm's and aww man's out of my family. TY for the great 1st experience in brining***note after brining for 2 days, I wrapped in bacon before smoking and it turned out quite well.

Spooky Homemade Marshmallows

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
You would have thought I would be such a pro at making various recipes...but this recipe honestly had me by the goat for quite some time. I've always been tempted to make homemade marshmallows but feared with over boiling(even with a candy therometer). I have to say, it was a rather funny mess with this recipe, that made me realize...what was I thinking being frighten by this recipe. Now, that I've experienced it...I will soo be making this again. Light and fluffy and really easy to do, so long as you prep and stage your recipe in the steps for proper marshmallow making. And even though I was a mess, the recipe was quite tasty and just really fabulous. Experimenting of the extracts in the future for all sorts of holiday plans are in order. TY I no longer fear this awesome recipe.

Breakfast Quiches to Go

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
While these were easy and nice, I thought I added way to much chopped spinach. I think that was my doing and not the recipe, however, it lacked just a tad bit of flavor, needed a little more umph in my case. My girls thought they were okay and my guys passed before giving them a chance. Darn guys! As is, recipe was simple.

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
The recipe was really totally easy and simple to do. The only thing I can add that helped me with making the recipe successful, was to incorperate the bacon, eggs & cheese together before topping each crescent triangle. My kids and hubby totally loved them. I can see it being something I can make on a lazy Sunday morning. TY

Caramel Corn Treat Bags

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
I liked this recipe, it really helped me break in a movie theater style popper. I used the last quarter cup of dark corn syrup with the clear light. While the flavor was overall nice, it didn't stay crunchy very long. The longer it set in bowls on my buffet for a party, the softer it got...not understanding why when I followed it to a T (and thought I baked it too long) like I said, flavor was great. I used dried blueberries(oh my gosh good!), mini pretzels, sour gummie worms, assorted candy corn mix, gummy eyes, Reece's Pieces, and dry roasted peanuts. Gave that salty sweet flavor, yum. But no one complained on the caramel corn being too soft later in the evening(I'm just the one that noticed).

Italian Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabellas

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
I've made this twice now. And it's rather good. I love the cream cheese in this heated up...hmmm mmm hmm!! The recipe I have to say over all is really good. But what I find in this is....the portion size. I have tried to find the size in this recipe, and it's a no go. Either small ones about 1 1/2 to 2 inches OR 5-7 inches...I've purchased the largest and the filling doesn't match up at all. I can get 3 to 3 1/2 filled with the amount that is written for in this recipe but no where near 8. Which is fine. Other then that. The recipe was fine.
