Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This is the second time I have tried this fondant. Im not really sure what Im doing wrong. I have learned a bit more about fondant then I had known the first time I attempted it and still I got a big ole flop! The first time it was too greasy and literally slid off the cake and this time it was too heavy and cracked. I ended up tossing it and making the marshmallow fondant I am used to. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Anyway, it seems to work great for some people so I still gave it a couple stars. It tastes good as well. Maybe I will try it again some day.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
WOW!!!!! EASY!!!! I tried the buttercream fondant recipe the other day and it just didn't come out right. I know why but I wanted to try this recipe rather then practice again with the other fondant. I LOVED IT!! It was so easy and it tastes so much better!!! I didn't have mini marshmallows so I used the large ones and as long as you keep adding powdered sugar till the sticky is gone it works. I don't have a mixer so my hands got really tired but it came out so perfect! My cake was beautiful and it tasted wonderful!! Which says a lot about a recipe if you have never used fondant nor had any previous experience with decorating a cake!

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Aside from me misreading the directions (isn't sauce a topping??) and the funny way it looked. This crust turned out pretty good!! My husband and I like thin crispy crust and this turned out thin and crispy. I mixed the batter exactly as directed. Sprayed a baking sheet with cooking spray, added the batter and then put sauce, mushrooms, onion, bacon pieces, and chopped up meatballs (had left over sauce and meatballs from spaghetti night) Put a light layer of cheese over the top and cooked for 20 min. Once it was done I added more cheese which melted on its own. WORKED GREAT!! Except, I must have made it too thin cause the edges were a little burnt. Still good!

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
OMG!! Fabulous!! Don't put the food coloring in there....thats just dumb...you don't need it the strawberries give it such a beautiful pink color. The flavor is extraordinary! The only change I made was I used half n half instead of milk because I had some. Its so rich and creamy with out adding any extras like strawberry extract or the food coloring!!

Cheesy Brat Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I wanted a brat recipe that was different from the traditional beer n brats and saw this. I think it is an awesome start to a great recipe. I read all the reviews and tips that everyone had left before I made this and ended up with something wonderful....a crowd pleaser! For starters many people commented that the potatoes were uncooked after three hours. Since I didn't have anything but canned/diced potatoes I used 2 cans and they were perfect. I broiled 8 brats and cut them into small bites as suggested. It was also noted that in some cases the stew was too greasy. For this I used one can of cheese soup and two cans of cream of mushroom. 30 min prior to eating I added one cup of shredded cheddar. It was not soupy or greasy at all and had a wonderfully cheesy taste. (I wonder if some people had greasiness because of poor quality brats.) I used a teaspoon of minced garlic, 1 whole onion, and 1 red pepper sauteed together prior to adding to the stew. I used one can of green beans, 1 cup of frozen corn and it was suggested that I add broccoli however, I had none on hand. I am so glad there are left overs!!!!
