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.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I chose this to make as a pound cake...Oops, not one but OMG! It was devine. The smell, while baking was fabulous! And was it moist and soft when I cut into it...yes it was. We were digging into it before glazing. And hmmmm!! I used fresh squeezed orange juice for the whole recipe. And I didn't have lemon extract on hand. I actually had orange...so I used it. nummy nummy!!! TY it's a totally keeper. However, the glaze...isn't for me. It really needs confectioner's sugar to glaze it nicely, however it's like a orange simple sryup...and it soaked right in.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I loved the way these turned out. Mine spread and rosed just nicely. I did like the fact that they had that "sugar cookie" muffin top to them like my daughter said...the edges were so yummy. Mine were all light and airy but did however have that Jiffy cornbread sweetness. No, no cornmeal but that's what they reminded me of a delightful vanilla muffin cupcake. And Jiffy hands down is my favorite corn bread mix. It just reminded me of a sweet vanilla corn muffin without the corn. I think half the batch was gone before I got them cooled off to realized I had cupcake thiefs. So what did I do now that I didn't have 12 beautiful cupcakes ready??? Made a second batch. I'd make these again. Because they were nice and sweet and soft. And I got asked to make them again next week for a party. TY Marianne. WE all loved them!

Crispy Oven-Fried Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
totally liked this recipe. The only think I find that was difficult was the crushing of the croutons. So I just threw the croutons into my ninja chopper and pulsed a few times. I also used tilapia fresh from the market. It was the best looking selection of white fish available at the time. Sliced the portions in half and followed the recipe the rest of the way. I'm not sure what the point of spraying the fish with cooking spray after they were coated but I did any way. My fish took about 20 minutes in the oven on the thicker pieces. And my family loved the fish done this way. So if your out of bread crumbs and needed something to coat with...croutons is totally a great option to have on any recipe. TY this was nice.

Nutella® Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I have to say hands down...AWESOME! I had Neufchantel Cheese on hand and followed the recipes to a T. I didn't find it overly sweet as others did, just rich. The texture was smooth, thick & creamy, no problems pulling out of the pan like other pies I have done in the past. It totally held up very well. But as far as the pie goes. It's wonderful! And is going on my list of pies for Thanksgiving. My husband begged me to make sure I had it on the dessert table! ;-) TY Laura, this is devine!

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
this was quick and easy. The one thing I want to make a note on is that I normally don't care Picante sauce on hand, it's always salsa. So I used my Pacy Chunky Salsa and I added more then stated in the recipe because of the chunks. But my family loved it. And I could totally add onions in the ground beef while it's cooking. But for fast, quick, easy and simple. It's a winner. I'm glad this recipe says corn or flour. I prefer corn, it's what I was raised on when it comes to enchiladas. This recipes is very very versatile and simple so it's a winner in my books.

Oatmeal and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
So I was skeptical when xraybarb (= , did this recipe for my Hidden treasures blog. I'll be the 1st one to tell you, the thought of stewed tomatoes and oatmeal was sort of a put off. And that's the issue at hand. The sound of it. But she called me out and made a great point, about that. So I looked at the recipe again. And decided...since she threw down the "mental thinking" thing. That was it. I was totally sure I had all the ingredients and I did. I didn't put a fine chop on the onions(wished I did), crushed fresh garlic, and did the low cal butter, and the stewed tomatoes I had on hand was italian style(wished it was smaller chunks) and my oats were extra thick rolled oats(don't know if there is a difference) And above all. Good recipe. Seriously good, it's a total 4 in my book, I have to say I think I burnt some of the oats because that was new to me(toasting over the stove). My oldest said it was really really good. I can see me making again. Possibly adding a few veggies or adding the oats in place of barley in other recipes by using the technique in this recipe. Surprisingly, I no longer thing of oatmeal as a sweet dish in a bowl. This opened my eyes. Thanks barb (=

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I'm going to say, this as so so for me. The end result for the 6 ornaments I got out of the batch did great. However equal parts didn't match up for me. I ended up having to use more and more and more cinnamon to get it to a ball like stage. Then the dough stuck to the counter top, so I put on wax paper..that was a mistake because then it didn't come off the wax paper. So then I used parchment. That seem to help but by this time I was getting flustered. So I decided to shake cinnamon on the countertop like flour and that helped a lot. But after one small portion and 6 tree cut outs. I gave up. Something is a miss here. I did see someone mentioning glue. And maybe that's it. So I'll try again at a later time. And they did have a scent.

Ornament Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I've never made ornaments from dough before and this was great. I questioned the salt content but I guess it works. The only negative thing I would say was my ornaments puffed up in the baking process even after I let them sit out on the counter for about 30-45 minutes prior to baking and the dough has hard to knead on a floored surface, so I just placed the whole batch into a plastic ziploc bag and grabbed out a small porton at a time and kneaded in my hand before rolling out on a floured surface. This made it work for me and the dough didn't dry out in that process before cutting them out. But I guess the end results is what's important. The kids and I had fun decorating them.

Beef and Cheddar Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
pretty decent for a "repurpose" meal. Meaning this. As I already had some leftover taco meat made up from the night before, I used it when adding to the rest of the ingredients. And after I got to the steps of the soup...well I thought it was a can of Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup. It wasn't, it was the Fiesta Nacho Cheese, but it worked. I mixed the soup and salsa together before adding to the meat. Because I also realized I didn't have quite a pound of meat leftover. So I just added to the meat until I thought was right Which was 3/4th of the 2 ingredients combined. Had I added the whole bit, it would have been too soupy~like to do on tortillas. Now having said that. The meat, soup and salsa makes a great chip dip. (if all ingredents are combined) So where others lacked flavor, there probably a reason mine didn't. It had the spice of the taco seasoning in the meat and the cheese soup mix already had flavor as well as the salsa. So taking into consideration on those factors, I'd make again but using the extra enhanced flavors as I did to make this quick fix repurposed lunch from leftovers. Also, ya still need the extra fixings...tomatoes, onions, shredded cheese, olives, jalapenos to make it the bomb.

Mozechilli Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I make this all the time, we call it spagetti ghoulash. But never thought about baking it with with mozzarella cheese. I didnt have rotini, so I used small elbow noodles. It's a total please on those nights where you just don't want to make spagetti sauce from scratch and this is a quick fix.

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
My family said it was totally delish. I ended up making a double batch, but as I got into the recipe, I totally forgot got to make sure I had double the amount of noodles. Soo I ended up making it as planned and saved half the batch of meat mixture for the next day's lunch. Now I followed the rest of the recipe to a T and have never used cream cheese in stroganoff before and I can say, it really added texture and creaminess. At 1st I really thought it was too saucy but after I used the batch over the noodles, it was fine. Over night of course it thickened and when I reheated the 2nd batch with another bit of noodles I had to add milk to thin it out some, it was fine. Will make again. Thanks
