Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
I followed this recipes exactly as it is written... That being said, these were so easy to make and they were delicious! The bread machine does most of the work. When coming out of the bread machine's dough cycle the doughnwas quite sticky, but I managed to dump it out on to a floured counter. The dough was really airy and easy to work with. I divided the dough into 10 pieces so that I had an equal amount for my family to eat. I rolled them in my hands and twisted them into a pretzel shape and lightly pressed down on them. Once they were all shaped I added 2 at a time to a stockpot filled with the water and baking soda. Waited 15 seconds and dried them all on paper towels. Baked them on a baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil spray for 8 minutes. They are crispy but not too hard on the outside and the inside is soft, airy and chewy. A hint of sweetness, but not over powering. I had a problem getting salt to stick after baking so I may try adding the salt before baking - and there will definitely be a next time, if I had more flour, I would be making another batch right now!

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I just made this bread this morning after searching for a recipe to use up my over ripe bananas and blueberries. I used unsalted butter for the shortening. Everything else I did as written. This was excellent! Moist, flavorful and just delicious.

Sunshine S'more Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
I made the cupcakes exactly as the recipe stated. I made them for a campout birthday party for my daughter. The kids thought they were neat, but most of the kids didn't eat the icing part and some even left the cupcake. I thought the cupcake was fine. It would probably be awesome straight from the oven with the kiss inside being nice and warm. They were great for the novelty idea of s'mores - but as a cupcake, they weren't what I was looking for.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This was fabulous! I pretty much followed the recipe but I didn't have fresh parsely on hand, so I used 1 tsp. dried parsley and it came out amazing! I will definitely be making this again, especially since everyone in my house ate it up!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
I made it just like the recipe said and it came out wonderful. My children and my husband ate it all up. My husband is rating this as one of his favorite meals. It was very tasty. I think it tastes best freshly made - it loses some of the fresh taste when it is reheated.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
I changed my review and gave this recipe another star. This is definitely an extreme chocolate cake. Very rich, but not heavy and pretty moist. The icing is fabulous! I made the recipe exactly as it is written and will be making it again and again. I do serve it with vanilla ice cream because it definitely screams chocolate!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
This was great! I actually cooked it on low for 8 hours and I substituted chicken broth with beef broth - since that is all I had on hand. They were juicy and fell apart easily with a fork. I would recommend this. Very tasty!

Chicken Oreganato

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
This was very good. I used all the ingredients as listed except I only used 4 thighs. I also cooked them in the foreman grill for 5-7 minutes and they came out wonderful!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
These cookies are great! They are more dense than an average chocolate chip cookie and both the paenut butter and chocolate tastes are mild - nothing is overpowering. I made these cookies last night for three of us to enjoy and they are almost all gone today!

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
My family loves this cake! I haven't tried it with icing on it, I usually sprinkle powdered sugar on it before I serve it. I've brought this to many potlucks and usually have to give people the recipe.
