Great 'n Easy Gazpacho

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
I really and truely loved this recipe. I didn't add much black pepper at all and glad I didn't, the veggies blended together added that peppery taste needed. The one thing that was slightly different only because at last minute realized I didn't have whole tomates but rather crushed w/basil already in the 28 ounce can I had...and based on that, my batch was beautifully seasoned. Sooo if the recipe is slightly bland..just add a few dashes of dried oregano. My Ninja food processor is a champ and I measured with all ingredients and the size of batch it makes, to be about 72 ounces total. I love it. This makes a super easy recipe, fast with little prep work, delish & go to recipe, if you're not sure what to have for a quick lunch. I couldn't be more pleased with my results.

Paleo Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I know nothing of Paleo diet, but for a healthy alternative for myself...amazing. I honestly can tell you, this never made it to the frig to siffen for frosting. The pudding like consistancy I found to be quite pleasing as well as the nip of bitterness from the cocoa...I love it when I can use avocados in another way and put a twist on something. And this is absolutely wonderful. For myself, I used a honey alternative, to cut down the sugar but with the same taste as honey. Hands down, if I want something sweet late night, I'm going for this. It was soo simple and easy to make as well as the overall thickness, smoothness and the easy of throwing a few ingredients in a little food processor. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!! And if you like a little nip of bitter chocolate, you will love this. It wasn't overly powerful and it wasn't milky sweet, to me, it was simply just right.

Easy Vegetable Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
The recipe was okay, the cooking process was a little frustrating to be honest. Not trying to bash, but I followed the steps as they were written, filled the water just to cover the meat as written and boiling it for 30 minutes on high heat, reduces your liquids, as it did mine. I could see, bringing it to a boil and reducing the temp for a bit, but to hard boil not just one round of 30 minutes, but 2 rounds was a bit much, but I kept at the directions as written and by the time I got to step 3, there was not much to drain off. I was consistantly adding water to bring the water amount over the meat and veggies. By the time I did get to step 3, the potatoes render down to partily mush, and I originally opened a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and used half but then ended up adding the entire contents of the can. This recipe to me would be a better slow cooker recipe then the steps it took to get to the end result. While it reminds me of my moms old fashion vegetable soup, we were always adding hot pepper sauce and spices to each bowl way back when, as this is what we did in the end of this recipe too. I'd try again only to be placed in a slow cooker and adding garlic, oregano, basil, possibly a bay leaf and some heat.

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Warning: Making this recipe will cause hubby to act like an ape, tell you this is caveman food, gunt, smile, and fill his plate a couple times LOL! The recipe is rather easy and flavorful. The one thing I want others to note is: do not double the gravy makings when doubling the meat. I had already doubled the gravy amount not thinking it would be a huge deal, until after the entire dish was completed and uncovered from the baking process. I had well enough gravy for several batches of mashed taters and biscuits. However, it's not a bad thing, but really if you double the meat, it's not neccessary to double the gravy. Will make again. It was really really delish.

Fabulous Colcannon (Mashed Potatoes and Cabbage)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Everyone seemed to like this recipe, hubby felt it needed more flavor, soo I looked at him rather strangely until I tried it. I think that there needs to be more seasoning in the potatoes with mashing. Adding later, tends to be an after thought and the spices don't mend well, however it was nice in overall flavor. Got one picky kid to eat it and that was a total plus.

Bara Brith

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
With just a few ingredients, this recipe was a hit with me, my son & hubby both said, it was good. And since they are more the picky eaters in the house, I tried it on them 1st. The method of the steeping the fruit in tea was totally new to me and that's what drew me in to make this recipe. I used my Kuerig Vue, to brew 8 oz of Sweet Tea(it's rather stout and not very sweet at all). And my only dilemma was, that I tried locating some currants but couldn't find any available. I recieved some help from members of AR that have eaten currants to help with the flavor to sub with. I chose to sub with a half and half with regular raisins & cranberries. Kept the golden raisins the same. The whole recipe process was very easy. I even followed the parchment paper in the loaf pan. And had the correct sugar on hand as well, which is bakers sugar or sugar in the raw brand of sugar. This recipe totally will be made again. The sweetness from the tea and fruit were a surprise and it really is a nice change to regular raisin bread. It's very dense, like a soda bread. However, I loved the sweet & tart raisin taste, even the crust of the bread was nicely sweet. You have to try it least once. I'll make again, and can see using other fruit combinations as well. TY very much.

Stained Glass Candy I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Totally loved this recipe. Totally!!! I followed to a T but used a mix of butter & rum extracts because I was using this recipe to simulate exploding bubbly out of a bottle and didn't add any food coloring because the color was just beautiful! I'm making this again!!! Word of advice, have an excellent candy thermometer!

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
I seriously loved this recipe, but ohh so rich with the chips ;-) the orange zest was mild, suttle and soo there, it really shined through lightly. I decided, I'll make again totally and ad more zest a few teaspoons of fresh squeezed orange juice...YUM! Outstanding so far as it is.

Sweet and Salty Toll House® Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Soo sorry Toll House, I seriously wanted to love THIS cookie, while I love a lot of the other recipes with your products in them, this was not one for them. The batter with all the ingredients was rockin' before I baked them, but after I baked the batch...not that great, they were more okay then anything, the peanuts and the potato chips were not great at all. And the potato chips lost their crunch and became rubbery. Really bummed over the recipe.

Becca's Barbequed Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This recipe~~very simple, but to me, it was okay, there is room for adjustments, while the kids totally liked it, hubby said it was fine(which means~~just okay). I was on the fence because even though it was hearty and thick, for I felt the sweetness over-powered the loads of meat. Either reduce the ground beef & let the beans shine OR add savory seasonings to cut the sweetness & let the meat shine. I'd have to play around with the recipe to customize the flavor combination if I make again. Thanks though.

White Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
In making this recipe, I goobered and forgot to chop the cherries, no biggie. All in all, easy recipe, but still to me tasted of more condensed milk with almond cherry flavor(and I'm basing this off of not eating much white style fudge). The batch should be lined in a pan with a sheet of foil that has been buttered, because I buttered my dish very well, but it was still very hard to remove out of a pan that wasn't lined so. I normally line all my pans with foil, if I'm making fudge, but didn't on this instance. While I thought it tasted nice & it's flavor was rich, I could see making again, however the person I made them for, loved it very much.

Kathie's Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I've not been a fan of grits, nearly my entire life. My sister made a recipe just like this one year for Christmas and I loved it, and was shocked it was loaded with grits...to my amazement, I have looked for similar recipes as the one she made and yet to find the exact one. This one was okay, slightly bland, but have more of a feeling it was the sausage and it was a bit soupy, not soupy running but like a soft yet thick pudding. If that makes sense. My sister's was a bit thicker and stood it's shape some. Possibly she used more eggs, but while this was simple, it was really nice, some tweaks are needed on our end with taste preferences. But again has a nice flavor.

Hearty Hot Dog Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
didn't care for this at all. The recipe tasted too acidic, salty and overly seasoning of spices and the cheese didn't bind well with the whole recipe. Won't make again. Sorry.

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.
