Pickled Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
My friend Toni, had my husband and I sample some pickled garlic...that was just fabulous! I came in search for a recipe. And tried this 1st. Decent recipe, however I double it and I felt I had more red bell pepper then needed after the fact. I made it to a T, so when it said large...that's what I had. But the bell pepper had a wonderful tanginess flavor to it and the garlic is nice it's not as tangy as the bell peppers. I'd see making this again. And if I double it, I'm going to not double the bell pepper in the recipe. But it does have that nice zing affect in the peppers and sauce. It's not like the recipe she had, but this is fairly nice.

Crab Spread I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Delish. My mother in law came over on Christmas and made this and I was soo addicted! I found this recipe and decided to make it...wondeful wonderful!! The only thing I didn't do because it's what she didn't do, was use lemon. I suspose, that if the crab meat was fresh, that would be the way to go, but I used a pouch imitation in the seafood dept from our grocery store. And I'm still addicted. What a neat little appetizer, for parties or just when you want something with crackers. I'll be making this again and again. Myself and my 3 daughters just love this. I didn't expect my son and husband to, but that's more for us. I love love this!!!

Black-Eyed Pea Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
It's always been a tradition to eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day...no one has yet to say, how to eat them on New Year's Day...so I ate them this way. And I loved this recipe. I made my batch with an Italian Dressing Mix from right here on Allrecipes and converted the portion I needed from the batch to fit the recipe, about 1 tbsp & 1/8th tsp to match a .7 ounce packet. But followed the recipe to a T, but used a mild salsa due to kids eating it and it was rather easy and quick. It wasn't hot at all for my kids and my 2 pickiest eaters actually enjoyed it. Great way to use up pantry items and still have a solid and yet light dish to treat the family with. I have no complaints for this recipe. We liked it very very much.

Smoked Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
nummy nummy nummy!!!! I've always eaten my dad's smoked turkey and never did one on my own until today. Being Christmas eve....Thank God It took little to no effort and it was fabulous!!! Wasn't planning on making a turkey for Christmas but hey it was free ;-). Followed the directions to a T, with my electric smoker. And the turkeys skin was that amber leather that kept all the juicies in and meat suculant! Will totally make the bird again this way. I even threw in 5 chicken leg quarters in the smoker with the turkey and my husband and son said it tasted like cowboy heaven! Totally pleased! TY

Original NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
Ohhhhh!!! just fabulous. Make sure to have a very tall glass of milk with these! I haven't made Toll House cookies in quite some time. And these are wonderful. My suggestion is that in between scooping and placing on pans...I keep the bowl of cookie dough in the frig. I also do not grease my baking pans, I prefer parchment for all my cookie baking. I'll make again. The dark chocolate totally made these worth while. Easy recipe, easy stock of ingredients on hand. Super fast to throw together.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I normally make peppermint patties and I've done a huge huge batch this year. Decided to make this recipe but make them thick, because I had leftover candy canes and almond bark. It worked out with the leftovers I had and set up quickly. Peppermint anything is great in my house.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
This is a recipe my mom used to make, in my teens. Loved it. She used plain dried cornflakes and even as I love them, I always found the corn flakes to be a tad flat after the mixing of everything. And I always question whether to use or not to use Frosted Cornflakes. And in this case I used Frosted. That's where there is a crunch factor. I am glad I did so. I probably could have used more cornflakes, possibly a half of a cup more. But as is...it's a great recipe. As is, the dropfuls were still moist on the mixture side but the crunch from the flakes were a bonus. The peanut butter mixture melted nicely in my mouth and that made me happy happy. And to be honest. Wax paper is just fine...there is no sense on adding cooking spray to the wax paper at all. It just made them spread and go flat when cooling. After I saw several spread. I took them off the wax paper, threw the paper away and re-dropped them onto another sheet with out the cooking spray and they held in place. So if you can cut the oil as much as possible...do so. I recommend it. Otherwise, the recipe was a totally success with my family and they still had the same softness and crunch the day after. Thank you Tammy, delish!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Totally good cookie, despite not adding the pecans. I needed to avoid nuts at last minute when I was making these because I found out someone I was donating these cookies to, had a but allergy. But I'll totally make again. I love a good oatmeal and raisin cookie, it's my downfall. And I can see adding a bit more raisins for it to be a tad chunkier ;-)

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Totally yummy! I'm thinking in our process to make these cookies, my daughter didn't add quite enough peanut butter chips. There was more cookie and little amount of chips to the batch...can't blame the recipe...really think it was my kiddo. Other then that, we loved the cookies. Made them to donate to the Veteran's Center for Cookies Across America. And they went over nicely.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This was a 2nd attempt at this cake. The 1st time I made this, I totally thought I'm NOT going to try this again. Because it was so heavy and dense in the bundt pan...that when it cooled off, the cake split in half and not all of it came out of the pan and dumped everywhere. I was very disappointed. So nearly a year later, I thought about it again and figured, I'd try again. So, with that in mind...different results, and I now understand what happened. While others have success with making their's in bundt, it was way way to dense and it doesn't rise very much...matter fact very little. I ended up using a 8x10 perfect brownie pan..without the brownie insert, and it worked out very well. The cake was very moist, and still lightly dense, but it cooked through all the way, so I can't complain on that. It sure wasn't the prettiest cake at the ball coming out of the oven. So I just used a biscuit cutter and stacked little mini cakes onto a plate with leftover buttercream frosting and called it a day. I'll make again just as I did the 2nd time. But never put it in a bundt pan. The smaller the baking pan, the better success.

Shrimp Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
MMM MMM MMM good! Thankfully I had the fixings on hand when I had no idea what to do when I had some shrimp needing to use. TY...this was really really addicting. It totally hit the spot from the ordinary chip fixings. Was light and full of flavor from the cilantro and lime. My daughter asked after I mixed it up to add 2 avocados that I also had linguring around and between myself and 4 girls ranging from 10-15...it was almost polished off. Yummy yum!

Stuffed Mushrooms IV

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I've made this a few times. My daughter has requested them. I like the fact of the hamburger mixture taste like strognaff. It's really simple and easy and I shake a few extra dashes of chili powder on them. As is...very nice, just needs a little more spice for flavor.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
Followed this to a T, but in an 9x11 pan, I added an additional ring of pineapple and cherry. I can say hang on to your hats ladies and grab a glass of milk. It was very rich with brown sugar sweetness, it will knock your eye balls back a few times. It was delish. I can say I might reduce to 1 cup of brown sugar next go around. But it is very good. And the pineapple flavor totally comes through in the cake mix its self. This was fast and easy to make and can be a great staple in my house. It's a recipe I'd make again, hands down.

Crispy Chocolate Log

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
YUMM! shall I say more! my pan was smaller when I put the crispy mixture in so it made for a thicker roll. And I didn't have butterscotch chips...they were peanut butter by mistake..don't think that matter. It was still a great treat. Will make again because the family asked me too. Fun to make and the end result was great.

Cornucopia

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I made this for Thanksgiving this year. Didn't get a chance to photo it, but it was so much fun to make. I made the foil shape a week or so ahead of time as not to run out of foil the day of and my youngest thought it was a dead fish with it's head cut off before I started the actual process of wrapping it with bread stick dough. Which was soo funny. Will make this again for future centerpieces. It was a great way to draw attention to the table. TY

Sweet Potato Pie VII

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This pie went QUICK! I made exactly to a T. However, the part of the directions in step 2 that states "mix in spices if desired" really stumped me for a moment. I really didn't want to over spice the mixture nor did I want to add the wrong spice at this point. So I did 2 shakes of Pumpkin Pie spice and 2 shakes of ground cinnamon(can't tell you if that was an offical tsp or not, but that's what I shook in. And my BIL said it was seasoned just beautifully. I'll make this again. And to think I've never made a sweet potato pie before. I have to say, it was my favorite pie that I made for Thanksgiving.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
The end result, was a juicy brisket. However getting there was different. I normally smoke mine in a smoker or low heat on a covered grill. However, I started this out in the oven, Followed it to a T, with the temp at 350 for an hour and then I lowered the temp to 300 and after 3 hours, meat was still tough, not up to 160 degrees but the internal temp...and totally needed the oven for other things. Made the choice to pull out the Nessco roaster. Placed the brisket in it and poured extra broth in it and turned the temp down to 250 and by in the morning. It was tender and just right. I will say nice flavor, but it was on the salty side. I'd make again but I'd cut the salt way down by half. It's a good and decent recipe. TY

Baked Yam Fries with Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I've never made yam fries but I bought some I really needed to us. The season salt was...okay on them. The sweetness shined through so it was a nice contrast. It did take longer then 25 minutes, and even though the yams looked done, they were very soggy to pick up, so I turned the heat on the oven up to 350 degrees to help get a crisp edge on them to pull off the pan. The dip was fine but mild in flavor, so I added an additional tsp of taco seasoning and it turned out prefect. However. I tasted the yam with the dip before tweaking and I didn't really think the dip matched up with yams. Yams were good, Dip was good...just didn't seem to think they went together well. But that's my opinion.

Czechoslovakian Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Well....this didn't turn out as I thought it would. Easy ingredients. Easy to put together. The batter was stiff when putting in the pan. I followed it to a T. Baked it and it didn't look done. It was in the oven an hour and a half. And I took it out. Waited until it cooled and it was gooey in the center. I think I should have prebaked the bottom a little bit before adding the jam and top. And even though it add little cardamom, I preferred the flavor before it was baked. After, just wasn't to my liking...totally sorry.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Hands down excellent recipe. I normally use another one on here, but decided to switch it up a bit. Light and airy, and really creamy. I'm pretty pleased with my overall batch. Used this to make Turkey bird cupcakes and really ones. TY I will use this again.
