Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Extremely Versatile! These turned out exactly as I imagined they would...only better! I agree with other reviewers that you have to watch them a bit, but as ovens vary it's always good to keep an eye on a new addition to the family recipe box. I use these instead of refrigerated dough as it is unavailable where I live. This will come out perfectly whether you are using it for Pigs 'n a Blanket or for Cinnamon Rolls. This, like any good pie crust recipe, is a wonderful canvas for the create cook's imagination. It isn't as much work as it seems, and is well worth the effort.

Chili Seasoning Mix I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This worked perfectly for me. I'm in a location where I can't find pre-packaged Chili Seasoning Mixes and this did the trick! I found the amounts to be a good start and allowed me to feel more confident in altering the flavors of the chili I was making. I made extra, placing in little jars and gave it to the people who attended the gathering, with a list of suggested uses. It was a big hit.

Prune and Olive Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
I doubled everything, except the chicken. Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. While chicken breasts tend to be dry, this recipe solves the problem. I chopped the olives and the prunes so the sauce would be a bit more uniform and more flavor would be infused in the sauce. I served with rice, which is why I made so much extra sauce - to soak up into the rice and share the goodness. Don't be afraid to serve this at a dinner party or special event without trying it before (we know we all do it) While you may get a few who snub their noses, I suggest you encourage them to try it before telling them what's in it.

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2001
This recipe would have gotten all 5's except for the need to make doce de leite. If you are living in Brazil or another country which eats it by the truck load, then you can find it already made at the grocery store, however, I found when making it with pre-made doce de leite that the pie did not "set" very well, it was very goopy and had to spend a day in the refridgerator. If you have kids I recommend using premade so they can make it themselves, but if it's for yourself make the doce de leite. Also, for the crust, since it's hard to find graham crackers, I used frosted flakes (ground up) and nutmeg, and reduced the amount of butter in the pie crust and it turned out REALLY well.
