Ganache II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I've used this recipe quite a few times. I really like it very much and it's soo easy to use. The recipe is very forgiving. Very flexible. The one thing, I never alway to cool completely because I'm using it immediately. It totally gives that satin look to it when it dries and it quite gorgeous to look at. Even though I've used as directed with bittersweet, I have also used regular semi sweet as well.

White Chocolate Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
My daughter and I made this recipe together, well I helped a some as a teacher to my daughter and let her do most of the work on this recipe on her 1st bread machine bread. I saw how easy it was put together...the bread turned out great. The one thing I have to say, if you have a bread machine that does the automatic fruit & nut drop in with watch for it, my machine, doesn't beep, rather makes the dropping noise and I chose to hold off putting chocolate in the machine because I didn't want to clean melted chocolate off my bread machine. So when I heard the machine do it's little drop lid action, I quickly opened the machine and dropped the chips in & we went to bed. In the morning we checked the machine and saw a beautiful loaf, nicely golden brown. Removed it from the machine and it felt soft to the touch, easily sliceable and smelled terrific. The overall taste was quite nice and there was no evidence of white chocolate chips anywhere in the bread(as far as seeing chips or streaks of white chocolate). It had a mild sweet delicate flavor and a hint of sweet cinnamon. The bread looks of a light honey wheat. And half the loaf was gone before my kids left for school. My daughter was pleased with the taste as well as everyone else that enjoyed it. Now I'll have to make another loaf. TY for the recipe, it's a keeper. Oh one more note to others. Warm water and warm milk is best if the temp is about 105-110 degrees. And select the 2lb option on your machines.

3 Ingredient Pulled Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Soo here's stumbling through this recipe ;-) End result was great. However getting there was like getting Little Red Riding Hood to go to Grandma's ;-) And I grin on this because, I made everything on this recipe, from scratch...no kidding. Went for dry onion soup mix, was out...came to AR, got the recipe and made it..YES! Then was out of BBQ sauce, crud-ola'! Okay made that too from scratch as well, thanks to another AR'er here named Georgi, that's a dear friend of mine, and gave me a recipe she's been making for 30+ years, and it was prefect, just made enough to complete this recipe. It's all good, had I had just the basics already, when I was making this..it couldn't have been any simplier. The only draw back I saw, was this morning, when pulling the meat out to shred it, was the meat on the very bottom had scrotched and I had to discard those pieces. I could have easily put on low and been able to save some of the meat durning the night by moving the meat around to prevent that, but that wasn't the case. Do watch the meat closely. However, the recipe turned out great, even though I had to take additional steps to get this recipe done. And it was worth it because my family asked for me to make it again. And I have soo much. This batch makes alot. I also used boneless country still ribs verses bone in because it's what I had purchased. There wasn't much discarded or wasted at all. TY it's a repeater.

Dill Pickle Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This was fabulous, fantastic, just wonderful. I had no problems putting this recipe together at all. I only doubted how much of 1 dill pickle it should be, because various pickles are various sizes. So I had chopped up a bunch of midget dills and it was roughly about 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of chopped pickles. The flavor was nice, wasn't overpowering with either the dill weed or the pickle it's self. Was delightful and my son...requested it again. Of course he prefers freshly made breads and this made me happy. We enjoyed it the way it is and wouldn't change a thing. TY very much!

Dry Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Very easy recipe!!! And super flavorful too, just what I needed to add to a recipe when I realized I was out & now I'll make my own since I keep everything on hand all the time, except for today LOL. I might add, that I didn't have the granules needed for the recipe, so I took a few cubes(probably about 7 or 8) and placed them in my personal blender(Magic Bullet) or use a coffee grinder...pulervize the tar out of them to get it to...well ground texture, I went fine texture on mine. And measure accordingly to the amount needed for your recipe. It was rather quick and simple. And this is a no fuss recipe. TY

Frijoles de Olla

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I've been making this recipe for a while, most probably don't realize this recipe is similar to basic canned beans for adding to other dishes. And has less salt then can beans. It's a perfect recipe for adding into chili, refried beans, casseroles & bean dishes. I just realized I forgot to rate it. And great for changing up other types of beans, since I have a mass amount of mayocoba beans, I tend to use them more in this recipe then anything. The recipe is very light in flavor and I don't find the recipe over powering in salt. TY just thought I'd let you know I've been using this recipre now for about 3 years in rotation with a few other bean recipes.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
After it was all said and done, it was okay. While the flavor of the meat was fine and so was the gravy, I didn't like putting the sliced onions pan at the same time as the meat(onions got to done well before the meat did & ended up turning black, even on medium heat), and the batch was very oily. The last step of the directions were simple enough, but I had soo much oil in the pan from the meat and the added oil from the ingredients list...that it was way to much. I should have gone with my gut instinct and removed much of the oil 1st, however the directions didn't state to whether to remove or drain excess or and reserve a few tablespoons(which really should be the case). But as it set up, I 2nd guessed myself and followed through with adding the patties back to the gravy and simmering for 15 minutes, that was a huge mistake because there was soo much oil that separated from the gravy and pooled on top of the whole dish, that really was not appealing at the least. Skimming the oil off was a challenge and it resulted with over 1/4 cup of oil excess. Please take the advice to use either very lean lean meat and/or drain most of your oil out of the pan after cooking the meat, so not to have a very oily gravy in the end.

Healthier (but still awesome) Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Followed to a T, was delish, however food for thought, cut the red potatoes, they took the longest to cook. Simple and easy and tasted just wonderful.

Asian Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
Very good and basic recipe...I love a good Asian salad. This was fine. I used up a bunch of mini peppers that I received and the used white corn verses yellow. But it all came together beautifully and was simply stunning with vibrant colors from the veggies.

Moroccan Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
I'm sitting between, okay and liked it. While I had all the ingredients on hand and it was rather easy to put together. The herb mixture was not a sauce, as stated in the 3rd step of the directions. It was thick and pasty and rather then a sauce, so it made me go "ohh fudge, what did I do wrong?" which I didn't feel I did but feel that there was way to much cilantro and parsley, I followed threw with the rest of the recipe as directed. However, the over all dish wasn't quite appealing as it was dark and blah looking. The smell as it was baking was not pleasant at all, and really made everyone complain....However, the dish was okay, the flavor was different, not something I had ever tried. My girls said some things in the dish was nice and avoided other things in it. I used small red potatoes and just slice in half or quartered because of their size. But will say, less peppers, less cilantro & parsley...And the dish would be better.

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.
