Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Pretty good, pretty good. It freezes for a long time. I use milk in place of water.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
I got rave reviews on this fudge! It is so creamy! This was my first time ever to make fudge and it's pretty fool proof. As other reviewers mentioned, heat the marshmallow jar for 10-20 seconds before hand and don't put it on the bottom of the pan (it will burn if it's on the bottom). I boiled it for 7 min. one time and it came out to stiff and then 5 minutes one time and it took a lot longer to set - some other reviewer said to stir constantly, but as a general candy making rule, you don't stir while it's reaching the stage you want (soft ball, in this case). The second time I made this fudge I used white chocolate and butterscotch - yum!

These are the best mashed potatoes ever! I whip mine with a hand beater to make them extra fluffy.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
VERY EASY!! I cut the recipe to about 1/3 the original (I only had 2 bananas) and I did it all in the blender and cooked it in one loaf pan. Very yummy.

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
The flavors were so great! This soup is so yummy. I did alter it a bit - I didn't have curry or celery and I only had baby onions, so I sauted the onions and sprinkled onion salt, celery salt, and garlic salt - also, the flour seemed unnecessary so I omitted that. I also added a 8 oz package of cream cheese. Yum. To cook the squash: Microwave the full, uncut squash on high for 5 minutes. Cut down center, remove seeds with ice cream scooper. Place halves face down, microwave 8 minutes (or until you see it "wilt"), one half at a time. Let cool, and scoop out with ice cream scooper.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
We loved this soup!!! My boyfriend requested that I make it every night, and then threatened to run to the grocery store to get another squash!! I used the microwave trick and scooped out the squash with my ice cream scooper. I did only use 1 thing of cream cheese and lots of salt and it turned out great!! As for blending, I made the mistake a long time ago of not letting it cool long enough - splattered boiling soup all over myself! Pour a batch in the blender and the rest in a large bowl (I use my quart sized measuring cup) until heat isn't actively rising from either bowls (It won't create a pressure when you have the lid of the blender on). Start the blender off at the slowest speed and work your way up to puree, while keeping a towel over the top.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
Very yummy - I added 1/2 cup soy sauce, next time I'll try Worcestershire sauce or a red wine. I thickened the gravy with 2 tsp cornstarch in cold water at the very end and served it over rice.

Orange Glaze II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I used 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar and I added a capful of orange extract. I let it cook over low heat until it thickened some, then I poured over my Pumpkin Gingerbread from this site. Yummy :)

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
I followed the bread almost exactly. I added 1 teaspoon of nutmeg and I used 2 1/2 cups white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar in place of the 3 cups white sugar. I think next time I'll add another teaspoon or a half of ginger - I like SUPER gingerbread. I used just one big square pan and put melted cream cheese icing (with pumpkin spice) on top (the icing tasted better after it cooled down). It was very difficult to mix the dry ingredients in to the wet - I'll try reversing it next time. This time I just added the dry bit by bit, then I stopped my mixer to stir it all up, then I turned the mixer on until all the lumps were gone. I turned out really yummy and the house smelled great while it baked! edit: Okay I added another 1/2 tsp of ginger, 1 capful orange extract, and used 1 full cup brown sugar, then drizzled it with Orange Glaze II (well, my rendition of it). Even better than the first time!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
This recipe was pretty good, in the case that I want Chicken and Dumplings but am going to be gone all day, or don't have time to devote to cooking. I used Bisquick dumplings instead of the premade biscuits, they turned out fine, as long as you add them 30 min. before you eat. I prefer my plain ol' non-slow cooker Chicken and Dumplings.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This review is for the recipe as written. it wasn't anything special, it wasn't very cheesy, and the leftovers went uneaten. I think next time I'll use the Velveeta, the packet of Italian Dressing mix, broccoli and mushrooms. I'll let y'all know how that goes.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This was really good. I used Chianti, the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce combination, and an Onion/Mushroom soup packet. It was good, but not something I'd crave more than once a month or less. Thanks for the recipe.

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This dish was okay. The flavors seemed a little off - and even 1/2 cup of sour cream was way overwhelming. I cooked it for another 30 min on low after adding the sour cream to try to blend the flavor in some. Maybe next time I'll try lite sour cream or heavy cream. Or another Stroganoff recipe.
