Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
The best! My husband has a much more time consuming family recipe that he has made for years. He didn't even want to try this quickie version. He reluctantly did and it came out perfect. Good bye family recipe, hello brittle in minutes! Perfect for gift giving. At the holidays, friends actually request it ~ usually with the nut of their choice... LOL!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I have to say this was a disaster for me! I was so excited when I read all the rave reviews. I used microwave popcorn and butter instead of margarine as others recommended, I baked at 225 for an hour. It just never got that hard crack candy coating that caramel corn needs, and the sugars actually crystalized in the oven. What did I do? That many glowing reviews can't be wrong. I gave it three stars, although no on in my house would touch it and I threw the entire batch away. I am still on the hunt for a caramel corn recipe. For me... this one just isn't it. Sorry.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Wow! This seemed to simple to be possible. I used Knorr French Onion. It does give the bird a bit of a distinct flavor, but still delicious and moist and very tender. I think almost any good packaged soup mix would work, and give you tons of recipe options. I did rub butter in the bottom of the crock pot to prevent sticking, instead of adding any liquid. I put it on late so I cooked on high for 3 hours and on low for a few more. What an awesome lowfat alternative in the slow cooker. I may never put a chuck roast in my crock pot again. Simply genius!!!!!

Dry Rub for Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Amazing! Be sure to 1) remove the membrane, 2) apply the dry rub, 3)marinade for 8+ hours, 4) cook 2 hours at 300. I cut each into two, or three rib sections. That way they are easier to serve to a group. I like to bake several racks at a time. Once they cool slightly, I pop them into food saver bags and freeze them in meal size portions. They are perfect for a quick summer dinner. I thaw them and reheat them on the grill with Sweet Baby Rays sauce. Delicious! In fact, I am going to go make a batch right now!!!

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Amazing! Follow Cathy M's advice 1) remove the membrane, 2) make the "Dry Rub for Ribs" from this site,3) use only the rub to marinade them for 8+ hours, 4) cook 2 hours at 300. I also cut them into two, or three rib sections. That way they are easier to serve to a group. I like to bake several racks at a time. Once they cool slightly, I pop them into food saver bags and freeze them in meal size portions. They are perfect for a quick summer dinner. I finish them off on the grill with Sweet Baby Rays sauce. Delicious! In fact, I am going to go make a batch right now!!!

Shredded Beef for Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I used this recipe to take on a camping trip. I prepared it in my crock pot at home, then took it still in the pot, to the campsite for dinner our first night. The huge recipe will definitely feed a crowd. The adults really liked it, they gobbled it up. The kids didn't. I only gave it four stars because the flavor of the wine was pretty prominent. I don't think this recipe is the best choice if you are serving families.

Jelly Bean Nests

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2007
These are sweet little treats! They are very easy to make but unfortunately they look better than they taste. I will definitely make them again. Next time I will try adding peanut butter as someone suggested, or perhaps drizzling with chocolate, or coating in chocolate instead of marshmallows.

Mom's Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
This is a great basic meatloaf recipe! I like the idea of the mini loaves it helps with portion control. I didn't have sage and substituted thyme, it worked great. The sauce was very sweet (I reduced the brown sugar slightly) and it makes a huge batch. My husband likes it layered on. The mini loaves meant I could slather his and just lightly cover mine. If you don't already have a basic recipe in the family ~ this is a definite keeper!

Egg Salad III

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
I tried this recipe because it was published in the cookbook. I figured it must be great! I didn't think much of it. It was mushy, and rather bland. I did doctor it up with several other spices and that helped. I just think at that point you are creating a new recipe and not using the one provided. Not my thing at all. If you like very bland and creamy egg salad this may be right for you.

Peanut Butter Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
My husband is a peanut butter ball NUT! He has a family recipe that he has made for ages. I suggested that he try this recipe because I thought the graham crackers were an interesting addition. This is sure to be a new family classic. The perfect combination of sugar to chocolate. The graham cracker adds a wonderful depth to the peanut butter. This recipe truly takes this from basic holiday fair to good enough to give as holiday gifts! A definite keeper!!!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
This stuff is amazing! Cheesy and delicious. It stays together and is very creamy, unlike most warm artichoke dishes. Next time I think I will try adding chopped waterchestnuts for a little crunch. I also think it would be fun to play with the cheese and herb combinations. A greek inspired dip with feta might be fun for the adventurous tastebuds.
