Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
After about 20 minutes on med-low heat (no 4 on my stove) and constantly stirring it came to a light boil. I stuck my candy thermometer in and it came up to 220 degrees at exactly 30 minutes of cooking. I completely cooled mixture at room temperature and it thickened nicely. It looks and tastes just like sweetened condensed milk. *note: I had 2 5oz cans of evaporated milk, so I only used 1 1/4 c sugar.

Almond Shortbread I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Very tasty! I measured the flour, sifted it and then remeasured 2 1/2 cups. (I had 1/2 cup flour left over!) I think that made all the difference in the world. I refrigerated my dough overnight and the next morning, let it sit for about 10 min before I rolled it out. It was a bit crumbly, but when I started to work the dough, it all came together. I rolled my dough out to about 1/4" thickness and cooked for 20 min. (I rolled my first batch out too thin and almost burnt them!)

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This was awesome! Used fresh lemon juice and green pepper from my garden that had turned red. Neither mustard nor lemon was overpowering. Very nice blend of flavors. Marinated chicken for approx 2 hrs and grilled for about 20 min. Will be going into my recipe box!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Very good cookie! Not as sweet tasting as the Nestle Tollhouse cookie, but I really liked the crunchy outside and chewy center. Made exactly as recipe stated. My bake time was 11-12 mintues (for a little larger than a ping pong ball shape of dough).

Caramelized Onions on the Grill

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
My FIL gave me a little different recipe for onions on the grill. He gets a big sweet onion and slices it almost all the way through (think Bloomin Onion from the Outback). Stick slices of butter (1/2 stick) into the cut onion, add salt and pepper. Top with shredded parmesean cheese and before you wrap it up in foil, add 2 icecubes. Cook on the grill for at least 45 minutes. It is so good - my wholed family loves it and they can be picky eaters!

Chuck Wagon Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I didn't have the cream of mushroom soup, so I took another cook's suggestion and used a can of creamed corn. I also used a full cup of beef broth to make up for "lost liquid" and used hash browns instead of rice (be sure to brown the hash browns good if you are going to use them - I only cooked them until they just started to turn brown). It needed a pinch more salt, but my whole family enjoyed it - all 6 of us! My husband added Texas Pete to it for his taste and I also added green jalapeno sauce to mine. This one is definately a keeper.
