Green Chile Beef Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I changed nothing in this recipe as far as what the recipe called for to make. I decided instead of using jar green salsa and taco seasoning. I'd make mine fresh and use equivalent measurements it asked for to stay true to the recipe. What I found that others were talking about how, 4 hours wasn't enough time to cook the meat. And will agree to that. There is no way 5 pounds of meat being a chuck roast will cook in a slow cooker in 4 hours. Mine was done in 7. I feel there was too much broth mixture in when it was done, I did shred the meat and place it back in the broth, but I strained out about a cup and a half of the broth and reserved it to the freezer for another time. The meat held no flavor as it was in the broth. My family said it was fine but I thought it was ok. Sorry, it's not something I'll be making again.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I was so nervous about making this. Really because I'd never made it before and seeing others make and seeing on cooking shows...surely it's not that hard. And it wasn't. I think the only thing I was worried about was the gelatin setting up. And it did beautifully. The flavor was nice. The thickness of it was soft but yet firm. I can see me making again with different flavored extracts. The one thing, I won't do is try and unstick it from the vessel I put it in. That part I was worried about coming out of the bowls in one piece. I'll skip that dramatics. It's prettier looking in a burgendy still drinking glass topped with fruit any day.

Flaky Fruit Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Well, we liked. Not sure why I needed to add lemon juice to this recipe. That part, I didn't care for in the pie filling. Especially using apple. I made apple and cherry. I'm rating the use of the topping in the recipe. Using cornflakes was a different way to totally use up the last little riments in your cereal box. The only thing that sometimes gets me is the part of the cornflakes in recipes. Should it be plain dry or frosted?? On certain recipes you totally know for sure, especially if your breading meat. So with the fact there is no specifications. I used frosted. I did follow to a T. I liked the frosted cornflakes in this because it added that extra crunch. What I didn't like was when some of the flakes cooked in the filling got a bit tough or slightly rubbery. But that's to be expected because of the liquid part of pie filling. I had some left over topping because I put my pie fillings in small ramekins, and decided to top some sweet potatoes with the left overs...and MAN!!! That was the best. I loved it totally over sweet potatoes way better then pie filling. Oh man. The crunch all the way through, the sweetness of the brown sugar with a hint of cinnamon. It was the bomb. Preferablly I'll make again but with sweet potatoes, or sweet potato pie, even a pumpkin for my kids. And because I made apple and cherry "crumble" pies, the topping tasted better over apple then cherry. Because apples liquid is thicker and not runny like cherry.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I made this recipe to go with a recipe needing Italian dressing mix. The seasoning was very easy and quick to make. I used fresh parsley in place of dried because I was all out of the dried and didn't have the option to refill my stock. So becase of using fresh, I just placed all the ingredients and stored in the frig, made really nice that after I had the batch in the frig a week later ;-) As for the spice mix...great. I havent yet made a dressing with it.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I sooo needed a pick me up soup for feeling icky! And this totally helped. My dad used to make this for him and I when we were on the "Dolly Pardon Diet" in the late 80's. And way, this is just as I remember it. Other then the can of green beans. But that doesn't matter. The only thing other then following it as close to a T as possible was not having whole peeled tomatoes or quarts of tomatoe juice. I had to sub, and glad I did, with 2 cans of Stewed tomatoes & V-8 juice. And after talking to may dad..he said he never used plain tomatoe juice in this recipe, always V-8. But it tastes just great. I think with the sub changes I had to make, I'll keep them the same on the next go around. Be sure....just a huge stock pot. Because I forgot how much this actually makes. It's really a delish recipe and it's a winner in my books. While myself and my girls love this style of soup, my guys aren't so much into cooked cabbage. But you will be surprise on how delicious it is even after about 3 days in the frig. It also freezes very well in smaller portions.

Easy Microwave Maple Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
WOW, hard to rate this, other then saying I won't be making this again. I do apologize to the author but something is totally wrong with this recipe. After making it to a T, and seeing what unfolded as the result, I went back and saw, another person mentioning it was gritty. And yes. This recipe is gritty. But more so very buttery. It had the flavor of maple but butter too with the crunch of the walnut pieces. I think and don't quote me on this. I'm not a fudge expert maker. But I feel there is to much butter. While the recipe set up in the beginning and after being in the frig for 4 hours, it was still soft and slightly crumbly when cutting. 15 minutes doesn't do this recipe justice. Before adding in your walnuts, please make sure you get all the sugar lumps that it creates out of the mixture before adding. I know I sifted my powdered sugar very well and it came out very lumpy. I think getting the lumps out as it was cooling and mixing around trying walnuts was just a little understaking. The only thing positive was that this recipe was sweet and had nice flavor if you can get past the overwhelming butter taste. Sorry.

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.

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.
