Peanut Butter Temptations II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
These were really good, however, you really need to watch the baking time. The first batch I baked the minimum amount and when I removed them from the pan they were rather dark and when cooled became very dry and crumbly. The next batch I underbaked a bit and came out golden brown and stayed soft but not doughy when cooled. These are very very rich and peanutbuttery so be prepared.

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
This was an awsome coffee cake and so easy. I did change a couple of things. First, I added some cinnamon and madagascar vanilla to the cake batter for a little extra flavor. I only used 6Tbs of butter for the struesel topping and the consistency was perfect. I pour about 1/2-3/4 of the batter into a greased 9x13 pan. I then sprinkled 1/2 of the topping evenly over the batter. I dropped spoonfulls of the remaining batter over the topping. I made large circles with a knife to distribute the top batter and mix in the struesel topping (don't stir, just swirl a few times) I then topped with more topping. Baked for 30 minutes at 350 and did not use the drizzle of powdered sugar as it did not need it!! Great recipe!

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I used boneless porkchops instead of pork steaks. First, salt and pepper both sides, then brown in 2 TBS melted butter over medium high heat for 1 minute per side or until golden. Don't peirce porkchop, use tongs to flip. Place chops into crock pot. Add rest of ingredients substituting Condensed Cream of GOLDEN mushroom soup for one of the cans called for. Also, I subbed 1/2 the amount of water called for with a little white wine and chicken broth. Cook on low for 6 hours or until chops are cooked through. So good with sauce served over chops and mashed potatoes.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
These cookies are by far the best PB cookie I have ever had. Right out of the oven perfect, cooled, even better! I chilled the dough for about 45 minutes and kept it in the fridge while one batch baked. I lowered the temp to 300 and baked for about 12-13 minutes. They are golden and chewy with a wonderful texture. I have searched long and hard for a recipe like this. Thanks!

Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
Hands down, THE best oatmeal cookie I have tried. I don't use raisins but instead sub in choc chips or butterscotch chips. Awesome. You can also roll the balls of doung in sugar before baking for a nice shiny crisp outside and tender inside. FIVE stars all the way!! Add ingredients as directed!!

Oatsies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
So good. The only thing I changed was I melted about 1/3 cup creamy PB with the chocolate chips and then spread over the bars. The PB adds a little "extra" and pushes these over the top IMO!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This is by far the best homemade sauce I have ever made or eaten. I have even made it without the meatballs, subbed turkey balls, spinach balls, vegies, etc. You just can't go wrong here. Add what ever you want, heat through and serve. Very good the next day as well.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
These are so quick and easy. I love how versitile they are. I always use Fatfree Sweet and Condensed Milk. You can make these as 'healthy' or as sinful as you like! Some of my favorite combinations in addition to the oatmeal: Add 1 TBS almond paste to the Milk, slivered almonds, coconut and dried cherries or blueberries. Add 3-4 TBS Peanut Butter to the Milk, Peanut Butter chips, Reese's Pieces and Chocolate Chips Add 2 TBS Caramel topping to the milk, Mini chocolate chips, coconut, pecans, butterscotch chips

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This recipe was pretty good. The first few spread out WAY too much. I chilled the dough and the second batch turned out much better. These are best eaten warm as they tend to crisp up when cooled. These are good with icecream and hot fugde.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
These are some of the best bars I have made and I bake a lot. I did decrease the butter to 2/3 cup, and increased the peanut butter to 3/4 cup and used a little more than a cup of chocolate chips. I used a mixture of Milk chocolate and semi-sweet chips. YUM! I used an 8x8 pan and placed 1/2 the mixture in the bottom, topped with chocolate/pb filling and then genlty crumbled the other half of the mixture over the filling. Chill for a couple hours and these are great. I may add chopped Reese's cups to the topping next time for an extra PB flavor boost!

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
These bars were really really good. I added chopped Reese's PB cups to the baked cookie layer before adding the marshmallows. This was a GREAT addition and provided another peanut butter flavor dimension with just a hint of chocolate. Perfect! I did not top with syrup, it seemed like overkill. My only complaint with these bars is that they are very difficult to cut and serve. The marshmallows stuck to the knife and upon taking a bit the marshmallow topping seperated from the bar. These were wonderful when eaten with a spoon along side some icecream!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
These cookies were just "alright" nothing too special at all. I found that they became very hard after cooling to room temp and seemed rather dry. I even baked for the minimum amount of time. We love sugar cookies and thought this would be a nice change, I was wrong. No one cared for this recipe at all, sorry, but not worth 4 or 5 stars.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I really enjoyed these but they will not replace my fave brownies. As is they are fine but I made them a few times and prefer them by subbing 1/4 cup butter for 1/4 cup of the oil. I also replaced about 1/3 cup of the sugar wtih brown sugar for a more intense flavor. I would hightly recommend using the walnuts or some chocolate chips (ii like milk chocolate)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
These cookies were "OK" but I wouldn't say worthy of winning an award. They baked up puffy and browned well but the flavor was off for me. They tasted very artificial and were extremely oily and greasy. So much so that some of the kids needed a napkin to wipe their fingers off after eating one after they cooled. I would say there are much better cookie recipes out there, the flavor of these is not worth the calories on this one!

Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2006
I thought the cookies were way too dry and crumbly. I was expecting a more chocolate tasting cookie. I really did not care for the frosting because not compliment the bland cookies at all. I was expecting something a lot more sweet than this frosting. May try again with a different filling mixture.
