Old-Fashioned Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
A nice simple recipe. I ran out of salt( how does that happen?!) and used celery, and garlic salt instead. Nice flavor. You have to soak the potatoes a bit first. A quick rinse then a good 5 minute soak to release some of the starch, then let drain. Salt the potatoes while they are draining because it helps release the water and seasons the potato better. Salt a little more when you mix it all together. Do a test cake to make sure it tastes right adjust as needed. Remember the flour and egg are only there to bind it together, not to turn it into a bumpy pancake. You want to see the potato, and better yet taste it!! Dont be afraid to cook it in grease, and may I suggest cast iron if you have it!! I'm partial cuz that is how grandma made it!! thanks for bringing back some memories!!

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
So I was desperate for chocolate frosting and had no chips, or bars, or even chocolate bunnies anywhere in the house!! I decided to use this as a base recipe and see if I couldn't get creative. I substituted baking cocoa for the chips. I halved the recipe because I figured it wouldn't turn out. So I used about 3/4 of a cup of baking cocoa and 3 more tbsps of butter. I brought all except the cocoa to a boil for 30 seconds, then stirred in the cocoa. I had to really whisk it to get the lumps out. Then I added about a cup of confectioners sugar to sweeten it up a bit. It actually turned out!!! The frosting came out smooth and satiny and looked gorgeous!!! The taste is definitely dark but compliments sweeter treats perfectly!! So thanks for a great starter and some good ideas!!

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
OUTSTANDING!! I have made this on several occasions and have gotten raves each and every time. I myself am not a huge fan of kraut but my husband is so I compramised. I used almost a whole can of Bavarian kraut and a pinch of regular. Bavarian is milder and sweeter. thanks for the great recipe!!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
It throws together in a jiff! I think I had this mixed up and in the oven in less than 10 minutes. I was a little disappointed with the flavor, I thought it could have been a little more chocolatly. Then again my husband thought it was great as is, and I am a self confessed chocoholic, so there is always room for more chocolate me!!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I just have to review again how wonderful these waffles are. I have been making them for 2 years now and no other recipes come close. I make them every Sunday now. They are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I started adding precooked chopped breakfast sausage to the batter and they are sooo yummy!!! Just can't thank you enough for such a wonderful family tradition.

Merenges

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This recipes is great! I just want to say to all those bakers out there, don't be discouraged. These are tricky little things to make, and flat little discs happen to all of us. How long you mix it, what kind of bowl you mix it in, and in particular; the humidity in the air can all affect them. And if you are having a bad day already, do not attempt this(trust me I know). Keep at it, the results are as rewarding as making a perfect hollendaise!!!! (it doesn't happen all time but when it does, BLISS:)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE! I REDUCED IT BY HALF BECAUSE I NEVER FINISH MAKING ALL THE COOKIES. I GET TOO BUSY EATING THEM AND DON'T FEEL LIKE COOKING ANYMORE. I USED BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING AND USED HALF BUTTER AND HALF BUTTER FLAVORED CRISCO. ANYWAY, THEY TURNED OUT GOOD, SOFT AND CHEWY, BUT I DETECTED A HINT OF BAKING SODA AFTER TASTE. I ADDED A LITTLE MORE SALT AND FOR LACK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO ADD FOR MORE FLAVOR TOSSED IN SOME PANCAKE SYRUP. I DIDN'T MEASURE, JUST A COUPLE OF GLUB GLUBS, BUT I THINK IT WAS AROUND TWO TABLESPOONS. I FIGURED I PROBABLY RUINED THEM AND THEY WOULD SPREAD TOO MUCH AND BE GROSS, BUT LUCKILY I WAS PROVEN WRONG. THEY CAME OUT BEAUTIFUL. THREE DAYS LATER THEY WERE STILL SOFT AND CHEWY. I DON'T KNOW WHY IT ALL WORKED BUT THEY TURNED OUT GREAT!

Mom's Cucumbers

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
tasty!! I have two words for all of you though, salad spinner! Slice your cucumbers and toss with salt and then let sit in the the spinner for awhile, give it few turns and away you go. I added a little dill, and a splash of white wine, and then cooked the vinegar solution for a bit, gives it an interesting flavor.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Just took this out of the oven and it turned out really well especially considering I only had 6 oz of artichokes. I threw in more spinach, a dash of horseradish and some paprika for kick. It turned out really well and very creamy.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
It took forever to find a cornbread recipe that I like. I had some cornbread at a wedding 5 years ago and it was the best that I ever had and I finally found a recipe that comes close!!

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
What a great recipe. Unlike other key lime pies I have made, this one is really light, and it lets you enjoy the flavor without making a sour face. I used a 1/2 cup of lime(regular lime) and a 1/4 cup of lemon and the flavor was perfect. I also didn't put mine in the freezer, just in the fridge until it was time to devour. Another nice touch is fresh raspberries on top or puree them drizzle on the plate. Keylime and raspberries is a classic compbo!!

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
Great recipe, bery easy. Since I am an impatient person and didn't want to wait over night, I used a food prosessor to chop up the rhubarb more and then tossed it with sugar. It juiced in about 30 minutes and the end consistency was great. Thanks for the great recipe!!
