Kentucky Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
I tripled the recipe (and needed to add another stick of butter to get the right consistency) and got about 120 big bourbon balls (bigger than what you buy in the stores). They taste just like the ones on the tour at Woodford Reserve. Also, this is how the bourbon balls should be...not the ones made with cookie crumbs with powdered sugar on top. Here in Lexington, KY, you can buy various brands and they all are chocolate covered. I finely chopped the pecans and let them soak in the bourbon for two nights. There was no need to drain. There was little excess bourbon. I chilled the sugar/pecan mix for a few hours before rolling into balls and then again before dipping in chocolate. I used a mix of semi-sweet and dark chocolate chips and melted via a double boiler. I also added a TBSP of shortening for each bag of chips I used. This really helped the consistency of the chocolate. I used a spoon to roll the balls (toothpick method didn't work for me) and placed a pecan half on top and put them in the refrigerator.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I always used Rice a Roni Spanish Rice, but didn't like how much sodium it had in it. This recipe tastes so much better, especially the next day if you have leftovers.

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I don't really taste the white chocolate, but it's a really good cheesecake. I've made it a few times.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This recipe is extremely similar in taste to a well-known German restaurant in the area owned and run by older German immigrants. To make this recipe more like the restaurant's, I boiled about 3.5 lbs. unpeeled red potatoes until tender. Drained them, rinsed in cold water, and added ice cubes to the colander to speed the cooling process. When cool, I sliced them (not thin). I doubled the dressing ingredients, but only used 2 tbsp. of sugar...my husband and I thought it still tasted too sweet, so next time I will try just 1 tbsp. (even with doubling the dressing ingredients.) I also didn't add parsley. We had enough for two meals, and the potatoes tasted just as good the next night re-heated in the microwave.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
I've tried several recipes, and this is the only one I will ever make again. I made it one day for my husband's friends, and within an hour the guys had eaten it all! It tastes just like the guacamole we had on our honeymoon in Mexico...perfect!
