Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
THESE ARE GOOD! Don't believe any bad reviews on these cookies (they must have done something wrong)! I used 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. ground cloves and rolled the balls in sugar before baking. Baked for 11 minutes. EXCELLENT soft molasses cookies!!

Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Pretty good, different from other cobblers. I used 6 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced and about 3/4 can of cherry pie filling I had leftover. I buttered an 8" x 12" glass baking dish, piled in the peaches and dropped spoonfuls of cherry pie filling on top. I sprinkled about 1/8 cup brown sugar on top of the fruit, and then sprinkled with cinnamon. (Next time, I think I'll add some cinnamon to the flour mixture too for added flavor.) The crust on top was about 1/2" to 3/4" thick when baked and had a crispy top layer to it. The fresh peaches and cherry filling gave it a tart/sweet taste which I liked. I had to bake longer, probably 20-25 minutes longer and cover with foil because it was getting too brown - the crust "looked" done, but wasn't in the middle. Had some with vanilla ice cream.

Classic Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Hip Hip Hooray!!! My husband is the world's pickiest meatloaf eater. His favorite meatloaf is Boston Market's. I have tried a gazillion recipes (well, maybe not quite a gazillion). Many friends have said, "Oh, I make REALLY good meatloaf... here's the recipe". He didn't like any of them. THIS RECIPE HE LIKES!! I asked him if I should make it again and he said YES! Thank you, Chef John. You ROCK! I basically halved the recipe because there's only two of us. I sauteed the pureed vegetables for a few minutes. I used 1-1/2 lbs. 80/20 ground beef, 3 mushrooms, 1 clove garlic, 1 whole egg, a PINCH of McCormick's Italian Seasoning, no cayenne, seasoned bread crumbs AND a squirt of ketchup in the meatloaf mix. I reduced the mustard to about a teaspoon and added another squirt of ketchup after tasting. Shaped it into about a 3x8 loaf and baked for 1 hour, 5 mins. total (internal temp 160).

Hawaiian Tarts

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Excellent! Made these today, exactly as written. Followed a couple of reviews, saying to remove tarts from the pan after 5 minutes - DON'T DO IT - they are too fragile when warm! Let them cool off for 15 minutes or so. Ran a thin paring knife around edges and they came out easy. I would recommend: Making 1" balls of dough, then chilling before molding into cups (I had to keep flouring my finger to keep dough from sticking to it). Also, don't press dough above the top of the cups. Taste is very good!!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I made this with 4 c. very good Jersey sliced peaches, no berries. (Put in boiling water for a minute or so and the skins slipped right off - slippery suckers, though!) I added some cinnamon, a little nutmeg and a little ginger. I also added 1 t. cornstarch and did not drain the peaches. I used about 1/4 c. Demerara sugar (like coarse dry light brown sugar) instead of all white (brown would probably work well too). I put a sheet of foil on the shelf under the pie just in case it leaked, but it didn't! Sprinkled Demerara on top of crust. Very good flavor. Will use this recipe again! Everyone that tried it, loved it.

Pretzel Turtles®

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
These are really pretty good! A couple of suggestions: Use Dove Chocolate Caramels; put the pecan half on top of the chocolate before baking. Press gently on the pecan to "set" it in the chocolate. Don't push too hard or the caramel will squish out and it doesn't really harden, so they will be messy when storing and eating.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2014
Some people making this may be slicing the meat "with the grain". You should slice "against" the grain. If you see long strands of meat when you slice it, flip it over! Slice it at an angle.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
These are great! I used 90% lean hamburger, didn't drain either. I didn't simmer for 30-40 minutes, but I bet that's good! I left the lid off for a while simmering, which cooked off some of the liquid. Very, very good. Thanks for the recipe. (BTW, my family in PA always called these "Wimpies") - I had to add this little note: I put this mixture on hot dogs! And I call them Sloppy Dogs!! It's very good - kind of like a Chili Dog, but sweeter.

French Quarter Bread Pudding

As far as anything you're baking with raisins, push the raisins down with your finger and they won't burn.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I must have done something wrong! My "caramel", after baking on the popcorn is somewhat grainy and it didn't coat the popcorn as I anticipated. I either cooked it too long in the pan or I messed up when I added the vanilla and baking soda to it (I added the vanilla and stirred, then the baking soda and stirred). Still tastes great though! Will definitely try it again soon.

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
You don't have to deep fry this sandwich! I fried in a non-stick pan with a little veg. oil and butter. Put the toothpick all the way through at an angle before battering & let some of the batter drip off before frying. Turned to cook all sides. I used regular bread and didn't have Swiss so used American (I know....). Swiss would have been even better, but this was an excellent sandwich, if you like Monte Cristo's!! Dusted lightly with powdered sugar. Heated raspberry jam, strained the seeds and used to drizzle on each bite. Could only eat half but will reheat the other half later :O) !! Used to love Bennigan's :O( - Friday's has one they deep fry - I don't like it.

Danish Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
Really good cookies. Buttery, light and crisp and delicate. Used regular oatmeal right from the container (did not process) - these are supposed to have flakes of oatmeal in them. Chopped my pecans up pretty small. Easy to mix up with a wooden spoon and probably don't need parchment. Excellent! Give 'em a try!! **** OK, I wanted to make them smaller so I made 1" balls. Def the way to go - makes the shape more uniform too. Didn't dust with powdered sugar. Posted pics. Man oh man, these are delicious! ***This is my third update: I chilled the dough and then rolled into balls. They stay a little puffed up that way and I like them better than flat.

Apple Crunch Pie with Vanilla Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
I didn't make the pie, but I did make the vanilla sauce!! OMG - this is wonderful! I did not use a double boiler, just a small sauce pan on low heat and stirred constantly. I slightly decreased the sugar and used Demerera sugar. Didn't think it was ever going to thicken up, then voila! It took about 20 minutes I think. When it was done and I added the vanilla, I then put it through a fine strainer to get the egg bits out. (Using it on bread pudding.) It is sooooo good - I'm saving this on my PC! Thanks so much! ;-)

Potato Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
We call these "Potato Cakes" and those made with raw grated potatoes are "Potato Pancakes" (like latkes). We add flour to the mashed potatoes and also dredge in flour before frying. We don't add cheese or onions or garlic (never tried that). My friend puts bread crumbs on them (I'm not sure if she also puts it IN them?), but they're good that way too.
