Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Pretty dang tasty!I've never made enchiladas before. I followed the recipe with a few exceptions that didn't affect the outcome adversely. I used the AR recipe for Creamed style Soup mix in place of the condensed soup. I also omitted the green onions and chopped green chilis. The taco seasoning packet was labeled "hot" and my daughter had to be able to eat dinner, too. So had to leave out those chilis. I also had no canned enchilada sauce. I used an AR recipe for Red Enchilada Sauce. I served this with Spanish rice. It seemed like a lot of work but dinner was delicious! Thanks for this awesome recipe!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Excellent flavor. I omitted the salt and pepper (personal preference) and used Beef "Better than Boullion" Base in place of those little cubes. I wanted to thicken the broth up during the last few minutes of cooking time. I was out of cornstarch, so I made a slurry of milk and flour (1/2 cup milk and 2 Tbsp. flour placed in a cup with a lid and shook the dickens out of it!) Just prior to serving I added in 2 Tbsp. sour cream for added flavor. Thanks for this recipe. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare pork chops. This is a keeper.

Hot Chocolate Mix I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Perhaps the best hot chocolate I ever had! I accidentally put in a cup of cocoa instead of 3/4 of a cup so I added an additional 1/2 cup of sugar also. For 8 oz. of hot water I put in 3 heaping Tbsp. of the mix. Thanks for this recipe! It fits perfectly in my old Swiss Miss can.

No-Cook Never-Fail Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I did half the recipe, as suggested. Keeping the heat on low the whole time. It took longer than 20 minutes for the cheese and butter to become smooth (more like 40 minutes). I also poured the mixture out onto wax paper, thinking it would work for me. I should have put it in a pan, as it was too thin the way I did it. The flavor was awesome though. Thanks for the recipe!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Just as the name implies, smooth and sweet. I used 2 large tea bags for a 2 quart pitcher (I assume the 6 bags in this recipe refer to those little bags.) I also only needed 2/3 of a cup of sugar. It was plenty sweet for us. The addition of the baking soda really does take away that bitter taste. Great idea! Thanks for this recipe.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
In the words of my daughter, "This is better than the honey-mustard sauce at the Sonic!!" I eyeballed the measurements and doubled it to fill up an old honey bottle I had saved. Thanks for the recipe!

Home made Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I was so impressed that I could make whipped cream with powdered dry milk....So I'm sharing it with ya'll! This makes quite a bit but it doesn't keep long. I also tried it with honey instead of sugar. Came out great. Not as thick as say, Cool Whip, but very tasty and works in a pinch!

Peasant Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
Very easy to make! I even messed up and put the melted margarine IN the bread instead of brushing it on the top. Mine only took 35 minutes to bake. This made two free form loaves, one round and one long. Not sweet at all and the texture was chewy. This bread sliced very well and would make a great sandwich bread (no crumbs!). A big hit with the family, too. EDIT: I just made this again yesterday. This time I baked them in bread pans and brushed the butter on the tops before baking.....Made a more crunchy crust and I had crumbs this time. I think I prefer the free form loaves with no butter on top.Thanks for the recipe!

Crusty French Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Excellent!! Better than store bought any day. I followed the recipe with the following exception....when you add your yeast to the warm water, add your sugar and nothing else til AFTER the yeast proofs. Don't add the salt til later...I usually add it in the flour, as it kills the yeast when added too soon. After about 10 minutes the yeast was ready so I added everything else then. Let it rise in the (cold) oven with only the light inside as the heat source. It will rise fine this way. Took 27 minutes to bake. This is a keeper! Thanks.

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
This cake is awesome! Sassyoldlady's picture of this cake made me want to try it. I had only 4 Granny Smith apples and not quite enough sugar. So I used about a half a cup of home made syrup (the Absolute Best Pancake syrup from this site) in addition to a cup of sugar. Baked this in a bundt pan. I baked it for 45 minutes and topped it with the syrup mentioned above. Definitely a keeper!! Thanks

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
It was unanimous at dinner...these had too much of a soy sauce taste and not much else. I followed the recipe and marinated for about 6 hours. Then took them out to cool before frying them at 350 degrees in my electric skillet.They were saved by the sauce that I made from the marinate. I added some water (maybe 1/2 cup)and about 1/3 cup of honey, brought it to a rolling boil for about 15 minutes. It reduced down to about half what it was. Then I mixed a little cold water and cornstarch together and added it to the sauce as a thickener.I turn the heat down and stir constantly for a few minutes. Thanks for the recipe, though.

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Never made my own syrup before. This was excellent....a little on the thin side, but still SO good. Followed the recipe exactly. Be prepared when adding the baking soda....it foams up big time! I let mine cool before we had it on Moms Buttermilk Pancakes (from AR). Thanks for the recipe. I'll be using this one again.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
The whole family loved these. I doubled the recipe. I was almost out of milk, so I used evaporated milk. Putting 2 Tbsp. of vinegar in it for 10 minutes to make my own buttermilk. Definitely a keeper! I served these with the Absolute Best Pancake Syrup. Thanks for the recipe.

Haunting Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I tripled this recipe because I wanted to make enough to use in individual servings. I found that for 8 oz of hot water you'll need 5 level Tablespoons of the hot chocolate mix. This is not too sweet and not too chocolaty, with a hint of cinnamon. Very tasty served with some marshmallows on top. Thanks for the recipe.

"Casey Dias" Tortillas

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Of course, 5 stars. It's my recipe! These are so easy to make and with the variety of things you could add, they make it to our table often. One option I didn't mention in the recipe.....You can simply use one large tortilla and place the ingredients on ONE HALF and fold it over. Browning both sides may be easier for you this way. Enjoy!

Homemade Cream-Style Soup Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
What an excellent way to free yourself from the canned stuff! I made up a batch of this months ago and just never gave my review. I followed the recipe except for the vegetable flakes, I couldn't find anything that said 'vegetable flakes' in the spice isle! . I used some dried celery and dried green and red bell peppper in its place. This is so easy and convenient to use in any recipe that calls for those "Cream of____Soups".....I'll never go back to the cans!! Thanks for the recipe.

Pork Chops Deluxe

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This is SOOO GOOD! First let me say I don't use the "Cream of _____ soup", instead I use AR's Homemade Cream-style Soup Mix. I also used chicken broth to boil my rice. Other than that, I followed the recipe and this is now my favorite pork chop. The whole family loved it and we had no leftovers.

Thick and Chunky Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This is my personal recipe, so of course I had to have a review. Something that I neglected to say in my instruction is that I usually have to add about a 1/2 cup water to this sauce as it's simmering. I used to make this with the addition of green bell peppers but over the years my stomach didn't enjoy them as much. So I've left them out of the 'official' rendering. Hope you like it as much as my family does.

Kielbasa and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Being a lover of Keilbasa and sauerkraut, I thought I'd like cabbage and Keilbasa. I was wrong. This dish looks really good and is easy to prepare but, even with my addition of crumbled bacon,we didn't like this so much. I might keep it and work with it though. Thanks for the recipe.

Pumpkin Seeds with Cinnamon and Salt

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I had never roasted pumpkin seeds before. Not knowing what to expect, these had a nutty taste to them which was good. I just wish they weren't so 'slivery' (like eating the shell of a sunflower seed.) Maybe if they were soft we'd have liked them more because the flavor was good. Thanks for the recipe.
