Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This was my first experience with fondant - making it and decorating with it. I was very happy with the taste and the ease of using it for decorating. However, I felt the directions for making it are very difficult, particularly step 2. Since trying this recipe, I found a way I like much better. I pour most of the bag of powdered sugar onto a mat on my table, and make a well in center of it. Then I add the cooled melted marshmallow mixture to the well and begin scooping the powdered sugar up and over the mm mixture with my greased hands. I keep doing this over and over for several minutes until the mm mixture is no longer runny and not as sticky to the touch. Then I begin the kneading process. When I tried adding the powdered sugar as stated in this recipe, it was nearly impossible with the beaters after about one cup of sugar. I've made the fondant now about 6 times with my new approach and LOVE it.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
My first experience with Apple butter & canning. I used Fuji apples, 2C white sugar and 1C brown- and could have done with a little less sweetness. I will try one cup of each next time, and there will be a next time because this recipe tastes great! My only problem with recipe--like many others--the time seems to be way off. I read others' reviews so I was expecting it, but after cooking with lid on for 12 hours, I cooked it w/o lid for another 5+ and it still seemed as though it needed more time. But I was impatient and wanted to can, so I am hoping for the best. Also...sauce was still very lumpy at about hour 15 so I put in blender and returned to crock for another couple hours before calling it done. And, finally, I got five full 8oz mason jars out of it.

Spicy Avocado Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
Very Good! I made this exactly per the recipe and thought it was good, but a little spicy. I added an extra tomatillo and a little garlic powder, lemon juice and water, and that made it a 5-star for me. Used it on cicken flautas made from here.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This should get 10 stars! I have made this recipe several times and every time I receive many compliments, better than the store in the mall! I use a bread machine to make the dough and I let it sit for a long time after the cycle is done, before rolling it out. I also like to leave them (after cutting up) in the refrigerator overnight and bake in the morning. They come out huge.

I've made this a few times and just recently again for a New Year's party. Everyone loved it! I like eating it with celery or tortilla chips.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
My first attempt at homemade spaghetti and meatballs and it turned out pretty great! I did not make any changes, but if/when I do it again I will try what another suggested and either blend the tomatoes in a blender or buy them already pureed?? I really liked the meatballs.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I cooked the recipe exactly as stated, and while the chicken was very moist and juicy (without skin) I thought it should have been cooked a bit longer to get crispier. I will try again cooking an additional 15 minutes or so and raising the temp to 375 for that add'l time. Also, I will use a little less pepper as my kids thought it was a tad 'spicy'.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
These were cookies my mom made for my siblings & I when we were kids and I absolutely loved them. This recipe is exactly what I remember and they are just as good now as they were then! I used butter (didn't have margarine) and they came out great. Thanks!!

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
Very good, easy recipe. I used my own homemade bread crumbs and added a little garlic salt, basil, parsely, oregano, and salt & pepper to the crumbs & cheese. I used olive oil & butter to fry and the chicken was very tasty and moist. I served with spaghetti & marinara. Yum!
