Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I tried this recipe the way it is written, well--opps on my part the 1st was with all-purpose flour was okay but dense. My mistake. Then 2nd time with the bread flour---just perfect, light and sweet. Also made a 3rd batch in the same day, and took the suggestion from breadguy to use only 2 tablspoons of sugar and tasted wonderful as well like a white yeasted bread. Totally satisfied with the recipe and WILL make this again. 2 thumbs up from the rest of the family. Thank you.

Slow Cooker Dump and Go Cheesy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
well one can only assume, when you put all this in the crockpot, make a pan of rice to go along side it, and then telling your hubby that dinner is at such and such time, you expect waking up from a nap, to find there's still food in the pot to at least try....in my case, there was not. What I can tell you is that the recipe was easy. I had no plain boneless chicken breast in my house...what I had was already seasoned in Italian herbs. So I used them, Follow the recipe to a T for everything else. And gave hubby the time line....Everyone raved how well it tasted, but there was nothing left for me to sample to verify. I did read some where about this recipe being bland. And in my case the chicken was not. Because the chicken was already seasoed. I will make again, because the family like this. Thank you.

Mom's Caramel Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Really yummy treat, serve it up with drizzled Hershey's Caramel Syrup over the top...Yummy. The only thing I did slightly different was use Mini Snickers bars, only because I have 2 children with chewing and swallowing issues, so I cut eat mini into 4ths and cut the apples smaller pieces to accomendate them. Other then that I was true to the recipe. Will make again. It was quick and easy. Thanks Sarah.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
We had too much fun making these. But I have a trick with the heads...I inserted the carrot piece threw the big whole that points to the back...and with a toothpick pushed the carrot piece gently through the already cross tipped whole for the beak...And I used the Chive and Onion Whipped cream cheese that I had on had...talk about cute, adorable and a conversation piece. Thank you...all my penguins thank you too. ;-)

Jan's Brown Edge Wafers

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Very decent crisp cookie. Mine didn't spread so much as I thought. Possibly because I kept the mix in the frigerator overnight. My son said they reminded him of Pettridge Farms Cookies. You can totally change the extract to any given flavor to match up with your taste buds for the day. Mine was coconut. While the cookie mix was easy to make, simple in preparation, the cookie was light and not heavy at all. ;-) Thank you WFDM!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This was a wow dessert served over Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. My kids loved it. I even surprised my hubby and my son with this as well. Neither are a cooked apple type of fellas, and both Were in heaven. Which was totally awesome to say. I have had others tell me of spin off's of this recipe on facebook when I told them I was making it. And thanks to xraybarb(= for recommending this recipe to me. It is a totally keeper. I didn't change anything. But I soo could when it comes to reduced fat products and sugar free replacements. But I totally would add a little more cinnamon because we love love cinnamon. But as is...it's really really good!!

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Delish, one slight change. I just didn't add a whole stick of butter. My kids like to add a bit on their own. So, I'd rather them put a pat on themselves then to over butter their potatoes. But all in all, simple, easy and tasty. Thanks. I'll make again this way.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breasts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Well, this was just excellent. Thanks Laurrie, ya out did your self on this one. Hubby loved it, other then it was a bit to much on the onion/shallot flavor for him...he doesn't care to much for onions, but I knew that going in. But he ate it all gone. And said it was a man's meat lovers meal. We loved the fact of the bacon infusing with the chicken and taking in that rich Wright Brand Applewood Smoked Bacon. I bought the nice thick premium bacon. And the chicken was tender. I did make up enough to fill 3 chicken breasts and I put a sear on the bacon when I removed it from the oven, on the parts that didn't get crispy all the way. I will make this again for sure, just knock hubby's down a notch on the shallots. My kids even in enjoyed what samples I was passing out. And wanted more...But darn there wasn't enough to go around to them. ;-) Thanks for the additional help Laurrie on the taters for the side. Hugs!

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Fabulous!!! With only one change...used a whole package of cream cheese & 1 cup of confectioners sugar replacer(Ideal brand) And whipped the snot out of my heavy cream before folding in everything else. But will say. I'm going to omit the almond extract next time, it was fine, but rather it didn't over power the other flavors that were trying to come threw. I could see adding strawberry extract in it's place. But My favor part about the whole recipe was making the glaze....it was outstanding. And quick. Very flavorful...no more will I buy what I thought was a decent strawberry glaze from the produced department..now is on my ugh nasty list. It was always ok..BUT this glaze...by far hands down...AWESOME! It totally made the whole pie for us. The pie feed my hubby & 5 kids. Just hmmm! Thank God for premade pie crust. TY Julie, It's going to be a staple for summer desserts.

Hot Dog Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
this was really delish! I was sort of skeptical about putting sugar and vinegar in this. But quickly changed my mind after I got to tasting it. I saute'd my onions in the oil before adding the rest of the ingredients. And used a No Corn Syrup ketchup and relacing the sugar with an alternative(Splenda). Worked out great. But stayed true to the recipe. Just modified to suit. I'd make this again in a heartbeat. Nice mild zing to it. You could easily add a few jalapenos to kick this up if you like it spicy. It would work very well. TY sal.

Holiday Hot Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Loved this...I doubled the recipe and it turned out great...then came to the recipe and looked at the heavy cream...opps! I didn't double that. But you know what? It was still delish! Not sure if I want to double it the next go round. Didn't really taste the artichokes or persay, they weren't overwhelming at all...it my spinach fan in the house devoured it completely on her own. So I guess it meets approval. She grabbed the pan and a bag of chips and said thanks for dinner! ;-) The rest of us that liked it...well we didn't get but a few chips in. Totally will make again. Just the way I made it.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I tell you what. I'm so glad these are called pretzels, because I sure did get turned around and twisted up in the recipe a couple of times LOL...recipe is excellent. I goober in a few spots but it sure wasn't the recipe...it was the baker...aka ME! ;-) so next time and I hope some take the advice on what not to do in this recipe. So not add all the flour at once... ya might not need all of it. Use what is left if any for the flour board to knead on. Also do not forgot if your warmer box has a proofer button to forget to add a little water cup for moisture reasons...just learned my oven had one and totally didn't clue that in, when I pulled my dough out of it with a slight crust. And also don't roll your dough on a flour board when you pull it out of the proofer either...it won't be able to roll out into a rope like strip when you need to. ;-) I also brushed my pretzels with butter and sprinkled salt on BEFORE I put in the oven to bake...not reading that part of the recipe resulted in a beautiful pretzel because when I saw that part and went opps, I then did it the way the author said...and didn't have the same pretty affect not did the salt stick on like the 1st baked batch...so because of my little goobers, I ended up making pretzel nuggets, brushing them with butter and the salt, made them so easiby pop-able. My kids LOVED these!! They were awesome even after my foo-barbs. I will soo make this again and again!!! What a keeper!

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!!!

Grandma Gudgel's Black Bottom Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
This recipe has been sitting in my recipe box for 3 years and 4 days...wow! I have made another recipe like this. And didn't realize until I went back into my hidden treasures and discovered this. The recipe was totally simple and easy. I will have to say, that 1st make sure you cream the cream cheese very well before adding the egg, sugar and salt. Because your cream cheese will be lumpy if you don't. I also used mini semi-sweet chips and it worked out nicely. The chocolate batter was devine, so we thought and this is a total keeper. When they were done, the cream cheese batter was ligtly soft and not thick, still creamy and not overly sweet. It was totally spot on. The cake, pulled threw with a perfect balance of chocolate flavor. I was totally surprised. My cake was completely done and very moist and I found, the kids were gobbling them up. I don't know why, I hadn't tried these sooner. TY!

Amazing Muffaletta Olive Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I just made this wonderful olive salad...now here's something...I put it all in my Ninja chopper.....and well it looks like a chunky spread. But that's okay by me. I followed the ingredients to a T and only added just a 1/2 tbsp more brine. And used Light Italian Dressing in place of regular...and wow!! yum. I put on some multi grain crackers and topped with a slice of cherry tomatoe...WOW I couldn't wait the 12 hours to try. So if it's wonderful now...12 hours from now it's going to be the bomb! TY AZ!!! this is so light and yummy and pack full of olive & artichoke flavor...it's hmmmm hmmm delish!

Smoked Sausage and Red Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
When looking up recipes for a massive amount of keilbasa I had smoked in my smoker the day prior. This recipe came up. No photo, so I checked out all the ingredients..right up my alley..But then I normally don't look at the reviews unless it's a low number. With only a few reviews and some being very poor. I saw that the author of the recipe noted that the recipe was wrong. Having looked at that, then back on the ingredients and directions and realized the author said rice on the side. I decided to make it anyway. I used all ingredients and left out the rice. There's no way I could have added rice to my 6 quart slow cooker. NONE! It was filled to the brim. I cooked it on high for 5 hours, and took the lid off for the last hour, I made up a batch of rice in the rice cooker(2 1/2 cups uncooked rice and 3 1/4 cups water, dash of salt) when the rice was done, I added it to my sausage and beans. And served immediately. And my family just absolutely loved it. It wasn't over powering with heat (only 3 shakes of hot pepper sauce). Will make it again. I feel the recipe was intended this way. And not add the rice in the beginning. It would have been awful had I done so. I scooped out a bowl of the sausage and beans before adding the rice for myself and it was awesome with cornbread crumbled right in. YUM!! Hope my advice is taken. Do Not Add The Rice, make a pot seperate and then add at the end.

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Will the flavor didn't change with the cake mix, this was totally fun to day. It worked out so well with the cake style I made for my daughter, to let her know how proud I was of her, doing so well in school. I took the mix and divided the 6 colors into 2 small 8 inch round cakes, and I had a blast!! My kids went bananas over the whole appearance of the cake...cutting was another story. I had the darn thing loaded down with 48 ounces of M&M's and 10 standard size Kit Kat Bars....Worth it....It made a great conversation piece with my kids. Thank you so much for this Rainbow Clown Cake recipe....I know have a purpose to make it again for an upcoming event.

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
WOW, what can I saw about this one.....SWEET!!!! EYE Rolling Greatness. OH HOLY COW, batman!!!! 1st of all, I ment to make this a couple of weeks ago, and I had been eyeing every photo since. I made this 3x, 1st batch I totally goofed on BIGTIME!! It wasn't melting down like I thought it should and by the time I added the c.s. and tasted it...it tasted burnt and was thick like fudge....didn't taste at all well. So when I was making the 2nd batch(I'll get to that in a sec, because it's different) I realized I didn't need to overly nuke the tar out of it. STAY WITH INSTRUCTIONS. The 2nd batch turned out totally awesome as far as following the instructions as written, and same with the 3rd batch. Now back to the 2nd batch. When I picked up the candy bars, I saw the 3 Musketeer Mint Mini bag, and thought, hmmmm, we love mint..can I adapt the recipe to it? It worked beautifully. So 2nd batch was made with a 9oz bag of Mint Minis and I replaced the vanilla extract with Pure Mint extract, and it wasn't overly powerful in mint, it was just right....OMG!! So the only thing was, I did see reviews that said to wait to frost when the icing came to room temp or cooled. I did that and I totally waited 2 hours after my cupcakes cooled, it set up nice, but quickly started to flatten. I think it would need 2 1/2 more cups of c.s. to totally stand up and not flatten. However, I'm not going to change it anytime soon, just use less icing to each cup cake and be happy happy. TY!!! WE

Sweet and Tart Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
Surprisingly excellent. I didn't have plain balsamic vinegar in my pantry, I thought it was raspberry...but nope it was pomegramate balsamic vinegar....well it worked out great. I was very skeptical about doing this. But the strawberries needed to be used up and what a excellent recipe. I wouldn't do anything different then I did with this recipe. Bravo, to the one that recommended ito me. YUM!!
