Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
If you like the Girl Scout Thin Mints, these are the cookie for you. I used Andes Mints for the top. I hate mint and I ate 3 of them. LOL!!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I used 3 kinds of apples, Gala, Honey Crisp and Golden Delicious. After I cleaned and cored them I had about 4-1/2 pounds of apples so I cut the sugar to 2 cups. I think when I make it again I will increase the sugar by 1 cup. It is still very good but I think my family will expect it to be sweeter. I cooked it on high for the first hour then another 15 hours with the lid on then 3 more with the lid off. Then I used the whisk attachment on my hand mixer and mixed it for a minute. It is a beautiful rich dark brown and am very happy with the result however it only made 5 half-pints. I will make it again but would make several batches so I could share some.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I made this just as written with one addition, I added a half of a hot banana pepper in with the onion. I used home canned salsa and it was so good! I made chicken breasts in the oven while this was on the stove top. When they were both done I put the rice in a baking dish and put the chicken on top then sprinkled cheese over the top and put it back in the oven to melt the cheese. My hubby said it would be good with hamburger in it too like Hamburger Helper.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
You add a cup of water too. This should solve the thickness problem.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This was excellent! I went with other posts and added corn, shredded carrots & cheese with bacon bits & cheese for garnish. I used homemade chicken stock instead of stock granules and left out the salt. I will make this one again!! Thanks!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
These were really good. I agree with another post on pouring in the milk a little at a time, the amout depends on how big your potatoes are. Next time I will bake my potatoes longer , one hour wasn't enough in my oven. My hubby said some chopped broccoli might be good in the filling too. Thanks for a great recipe!

Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Very Yummy!! Thanks for a great tahini-free recipe, I can't get it in my area. This is the 3rd recipe for hummus I have tried and the 3rd time's the charm! I like the flavor of the 2 beans together though the color is a little unappealing. I didn't have any curry and didn't use salt or pepper either. I also used the liquid from the chick peas instead of the water. The blender worked better than the food processor, it was much smoother than my first 2 tries.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This was a big hit! I used less sugar than it called for, I used 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar for the topping and just 1 egg based on other reviews. It was very good even without the orange zest and pecans (I didn't have either on hand). Eveyone loved it! Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This was very good frosting! I used it to frost the Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake II SUBMITTED BY: Cathy. I did need to use 2 cups of powdered sugar and I used brewed coffee instead of the water to make it less sweet as my cake was a dark chocolate flavor. It also "crusts" up nice so it would be easy to decorate. Other reviews said it didn't make enough for a 9 X 13 cake but the cake I made was only 11 X 7 so I had plenty. Good thing since I ate a tablespoon or two of it before I got it on the cake!!! Checking to see if it was missing anything of course!! Thank you for a great recipe.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This recipe is awesome!! If you are expecting a milk chocolate flavor you might be disappointed. It has a dark chocolate flavor. The only change I made was I added 1/4 cup of cold brewed coffee (an idea I got from another recipe) and only because after I had it all mixed up it seemed a bit thick for a cake mix (more like brownie batter). I don't know if it changed the flavor as this is the first time I've made it (maybe why I think it has a dark chocolate flavor). I will make it again though. I love the size too since I usually end up throwing part of a 9 X 13 away. I used a frosting recipe, Chocolate Frosting I SUBMITTED BY: K. Myhre

Sweeper Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
This was delicious!! I made it in the crockpot, it took about 5 hours on high. I sauteed the beef before I added it to the pot. I made 2 additions, fresh broccoli about 15 minutes before I served it and I didn't find the final color very attractive so I added some Kitchen Bouquet gravy darkener and served it over rice. I used the mushroom and onion soup mix and I think a can of mushrooms would be great in addition to the soup, I like them alot!! My mother made a similar dish we called Beef and Bacon over rice (I'll try to post it here). There weren't any leftovers, I might have to double it next time!!! I will make it again.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
These are yummy!!! I made 3 batches in 1 week! I never dipped or drizzled them in chocolate or they probably would have gone faster!! I have a couple suggestions when baking though. The batter is a the consistence of a thicker cake mix so just spoon it right onto the cookie sheets. My sheets are old and not non-stick so I definetly recommend the parchment paper (you can get it on a roll in the grocery store near the aluminum foil and wax paper). Cut them with a pizza cutter when they are right out of the oven, the longer they cool the crispier they get, then turn them on their side when they are cool enough to handle. These are so good!!! Coffee isn't the same without them!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This recipe will change your opinion of canned tomato soup forever!! We grew a garden and I had so many tomatoes and I was looking for something to do with them other than canning them. I made this soup to serve with sandwiches and it was a big hit! I don't have a food mill so I just strained it with my finer-holed colander and it was fine. I will make this again next fall when the tomatoes are coming in faster than I can use them!

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
These breadsticks are awesome! I've never had alot of success with yeast breads but these were very easy to make and turned out great. I did need more flour than was called for but I expected that after reading the other reviews. I added some Italian Seasoning to the dough and I brushed the Parmesan Butter on top of half of them before I baked them, leaving the other half plain. I served them with homemade pizza and we dipped them in pizza sauce and the remaining butter mixture. They are like little loaves of bread!! I served the plain ones for breakfast this morning with jelly! Yummy! I also used some of the dough to make dinner rolls for tonights dinner. I just formed the dough into balls instead of sticks and put them into a greased pie plate to rise then baked them. They came out perfect!! They baked all the way through and the sides were touching. Next time I make these as breadsticks I might try to bake them in a sheet and cut them apart after cooking so I can sprinkle them with mozzerella and cheddar cheese without getting it all over my cookie sheets. I will make these often!! A great recipe!!

Christmas Morning Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This was a great Christmas morning breakfast and a great use for 1 leftover pie crust after making my pies!! I used spicy sausage and sharp cheddar & pepper jack cheeses. I didn't have any red pepper so I just used green, not as colorful but soooo good!!! This is a keeper!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
For the people having trouble getting their fudge to set...Make sure it isn't raining when you make it!! I assume it's a humidity thing but my sister-in-law swears "you can't make fudge in the rain".....I love hillbillies, they know all the tricks!!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
My mother made nearly the same recipe for our turkey except when you are cooking the celery and onions you add 1/2 pound of Bob Evans Sage flavored Sausage (The smell is awesome when it cooks!!!) and she stuffed it in the turkey. My Hubby hates celery so I tried using apples instead of the celery but it was no where near the same so I probably will never eat this again but OHH the memories!

Instant Cappuccino

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This is a great treat!! I did change it a bit since I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. I used instant chocolate pudding powder for the chocolate drink mix. I also used allspice instead of nutmeg and I didn't have any instant coffee so I just made a pot of strong coffee and used this recipe as a "creamer". I added it all to the food processor and made sure it was well mixed. I plan to try it again after I get all the right ingredients and give as gifts along with a mug, a serving spoon and one of the biscotti recipes I found here too!!! A++
