Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Really loved this recipe, but based on other reviews I was worried it would be too salty. I suggest cutting the salt back to 1 cup. I only brined mine for 1 day, which seemed more than enough time. I also used Alton Brown's method of cooking. My turkey was very tender and moist. The first bite seemed salty, but after that I didn't notice it. I am making this again this year.

Carol's Butter Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I don't know what I did wrong, but this cake was very dry and had no taste. I re-read the directions, and couldn't figure out what I did wrong. I won't be making this again. Sorry

Tres Leches Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I wish this recipe described how to fold in the egg whites a little better. My cake sank, just as a lot of people said. I thought maybe this was normal because my son says it is supposed to be dense. Well, I looked up how to fold in egg whites after the fact. Put about a third of the whipped egg white into the batter, and gently mix it in to 'temper' the batter, which will make it easier to mix in the rest of the egg white. Hold the bowl over the mixing bowl containing your batter, and tilt it so that the egg whites slide out into the batter. Using a large spatula, cut a path down the middle of the mixture with the edge of the spatula. Then gently turn half the mixture over onto the other half. Continue cutting down the middle and turning a portion over. Don't stir. The purpose of folding is to retain the air you have beaten into the whites. Be careful to only work the batter enough to incorporate the whites, and never use an electric mixer for this step. Mixing the egg whites into the batter too much will cause your cake to sink. My cake still tasted good, even though it sank. My son requested it for his birthday, and my husband thought it sounded gross. But once he tried it, he loved it!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Very good! Needed 1 cup water instead of 1/2, and you should omit the extra salt. It is not needed. I also added potatos. I loved it, however my son and daughtger-in-law have decided to go "vegan", so they drooled over it, but resisted eating it. I could not have done that. The smell was so delicious! I brought some leftovers for lunch, and the smell is making my co-worker drool. Now she is not looking forward to her protein bar for lunch :)

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Loved, loved, loved this bread! Moist and delicious! I picked this recipe because I only wanted to make 2 loves and only waned to use a 15 oz can of pumkin. I only used 1 tsp of ginger because I was afraid 2 would be too much. It was perfect! Used nutmeg instead of allspice (didn't have allspice). Will definitely make again.

Sweet Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Have to add my 2 cents. I LOVED these muffins! I used canola oil because I wasn't sure about the shortening. I used a tad less sugar and they tasted great. I think I overmixed them, because they were a little crumbly. I think I should hand mix them next time and that might help. Will definitely make again!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
I made this soup last night and loved it! My husband and son instisted that I put Italian Sausage in it instead of ham (even though I would prefer ham). They doctored their bowls up a little bit with Mrs. Dash, etc., but I thought it was just right with salt and pepper. Great recipe!

Cajun Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
My son and I made this lasagne for a school project. According to him the kids and his teacher loved it! We had trouble finding the andouille sausage, but the guy in the meat department pointed out that Johnsonville New Orleans sausages was andouille sausage. It says so right on the package. This lasagne smelled wonderful baking! It doesn't take a whole package of noodles, and I would use more alfredo sauce next time.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
I have made this recipe a bunch of times now. My husband loves it, but I add walnuts for him. It is so easy and tastes great! I make muffins out of mine and bake for 35 minutes instead of 1 hour. Making muffins cuts the baking time down. I want to add that I now make this with 1 cup flour and 1 cup oatmeal. It is less dense and more moist this way.
