Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This recipe is really great. I read through several reviews before making changes and this is what I came up with. First, I used spice cake mix instead of yellow and it eliminated the use of all the other spices that were needed for this recipe. Then, I left the eggs and oil out of the cake mix recipe and only added 1 cup of milk to make sure they would be moist enough. Finally I just used a regular can of Libby's pumpkin pie mix. That's it! They came out so delicious and moist. They melt in your mouth and they are so good for you. Hope this is helpful. :o)

Picadillo

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I thought this was a nice foundation to picadillo but made some minor adjustments. First off, I scaled it back to a serving of 4. Once I saw the new measurements, I scaled back the cinnamon and cloves to 1/8 of a tsp. instead of the 1/4 tsp it called for. I knew it would be too much due to their overwhelming flavor. I left out the olives and capers mainly because I didn't have any on hand. I added some pure annatto seed, ground, about 1/4 tsp, and 1/4 tsp of Mexican oregano, and cumin. I scaled back the tomato sauce to 1 1/2 cups and added a half cup of beer. Beer is very typical in chicken and yellow rice so why not in picadillo. I served it over white rice and thought it turned out pretty good.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I made these cinnamon rolls just a few days ago and got rave reviews. I doubled the recipe and was very pleased with the outcome. I added a pinch or two of kosher salt to the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture to really bring out the sweetness, and to create a bit of a salty sweet combination. And kosher salt has bigger granules to give you that salty sweet taste. For a topping I made a brown sugar glaze: 1 cup of brown sugar and butter, 1 tbsp of vanilla extract and another nice pinch of kosher salt. Bring this up to a simmer in a small saucepan at medium heat. Once melded together nicely, take off the heat and add 1 heaping cup of powdered sugar and whisk together until you achieve the glaze consistency you desire. Again, when you take a bite you may meet a bit of the kosher salt in both the center of the cinnamon roll and glaze which really makes this cinnamon roll pop.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Last week we had a soup cook off at my school and my class made this potato soup and it was a hit! It was easy to make and we got 2nd place. I also made it this weekend at homw. The only changes that I made were that I used one bag of shredded cheese and it was sharp cheddar instead of regular. It was so delicious. This is definitely a favorite in my house!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
Followed the recipe as stated but needed toad just a little it more milk in order to create the right consistency. Excellent. The cookies turned out awesome. I used a paint brush and painted my egg cookies. The possibilities are endless. Will be using this icing recipe. Simple, quick and tasty. Not too sweet. Thanks!
