Whipped Cream Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
I filled eclairs with this and they were excellent. The only change I made was to increase the sugar to 4 Tbsps as when I tasted it before I whipped it, it was not quite sweet enough for my sweet tooth. Even with the increase of the sugar it wasn't terribly sweet but we liked it better. This is definately a keeper!

Peppermint Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2001
This is an excellent cookie. It was a little tricky to bake, though. They will brown if the oven is too hot. A plain cookie is easy to make too. Substitute 1/2 teaspoon vanilla for all of the crushed peppermint. I piped them with a large star tip and they make pretty cookies.

Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
This was too simple for words! Tasty too! I don't always care for the taste of eggs so I gave this a try just to see if it would make a good banana pudding. It made an excellent, and fast banana pudding.This pudding, a few vanilla wafers and a couple of sliced bananas and life is good. Thanks for sharing an easy recipe!

Southern Moon Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
These turned out excellent. Having said that, I must also say that they are not moon pies as I know them. A moon pie is two flat cakes that sandwich a layer of marshmallow and is coated in chocolate like coating. Also delicious.And when you bite it the marshmallow is tough and strings a little. This is more like a Whoopie pie. Tender and cake-like and the filling is tender too. I'll be adding this to my collection and using it. I don't see any reason why you couldn't use cool whip as a filling or maybe even strawberry jam or whatever you like with chocolate that would spread easily. Delicious!

Homemade Smoked Almonds

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I had never eaten smoked almonds so when I ran across a candy recipe that called for them, I went to buy them. Shortly thereafter I was looking for a more cost effective alternative. These are delicious. The one thing that I did differently was to NOT toast the almonds first. I just thought that 30 minutes at 300 degrees was plenty and I was satisfied with the end product. These were easy to make and took about two minutes to prepare for the oven since I left out the first toasting. I'll be making them again since it is the season for baking and candy making! Thanks for sharing a tasty recipe!

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2002
I have made this several times with varying degrees of success. However, I think I've tweaked it to our liking by being skimpy with the sauce and skipping the extra water and garlic. I've used all kinds of bread, French works well, too and heat and serve bread sticks slice into bite sized pieces nicely. The meatballs are good, and I'm not always crazy about meatballs. But the cream cheese mixture is what makes this so yummy! This is an excellent recipe!

Slow Cooker Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2004
This worked out pretty well. Mine didn't turn out greasy but it was a little dry, but that was easily cured with a little water. I did brown my hamburger with onions and I used my own pizza sauce. I also halved the recipe since some of the previous reviews said that it makes alot. They were right. I had plenty at half the recipe. I think that next time I'll add green peppers and other pizza toppings, this is a recipe that is easily personalizes. I think I'd like smaller pasta than rigatoni too. Frankly, I think just about any pasta that you have on hand would work beautifully. I think this is a keeper!

Pizza Crust II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2002
This was good, but I think next time I'll use vegetable oil in place of the olive oil. But a good crust. I pre-baked and I liked the texture.

Lemon Icebox Pie III

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2002
Whew! This one has been a big hit. Even my 5 year old likes it, she's not much of a sweet eater. I don't know how that happened. I did increase it to the juice of 3 lemons for our tastes. This one will be on the menu alot!

Sizzling Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2002
I must say, when I mixed up this marinade, I had serious doubts. It was very chunky. I was afaid that I was consigning my chicken to the trash. I was wrong. It was excellent. The only request I have gotten, is that next time I should make the strips thinner. My 5 year old came back for more, not that she's picky, but she saw the marinade, too. This one will be on the menu again!

Chocolate Icebox Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2002
Yum! This worked out excellent! Solved my chocolate need for the next couple of days. This one is a keeper and I'm afraid I'll be making it quite often!

Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I've made caramel this way for many years. It is delicious! A couple of hints: Don't use sweetened condensed milk with a pull tab top, think old school. The lids on these cans are already weak for easy opening. Use a BIG kettle of water. Fold an old dishrag and place under the can while boiling, or something else to lift the can off the bottom of the pot. You don't have to use a rolling boil, a simmer or a little bigger than that will do. 3 hours is a minimum for a spoonable caramel, longer makes a thicker, darker caramel. I'd guess that the reviewer that got the butterscotch flavor needed to leave it to boil a while longer. But hey, I like butterscotch, too. Allow the can to cool in the pot with the water. I wouldn't handle it until it is cool. Plus, who wants to handle a gallon of boiling water and a hot can of lava! This is WAY better than the dip you can buy for apples! My grandmother's name was Marie. She cooked for 8 kids. If she gave me a recipe, I knew it was tried and true!

Cheese Wafers

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2000
I'm in the middle of this recipe and there is no dough to form. Too dry. I'm working on it.

Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
This was delicious, I confess to a small modification. I added about double the cabbage and then I added about 2 tbsps of sugar to the filling. It didn't sweeten it so much as smooth out the flavors. Lumpia wrappers are time consuming to separate, but very tasty. I have made this several times and keep getting happier with my efforts. I substituted chicken for the pork and wonton wrappers for the lumpia wrappers once and they were still good. My 3 year old must have an asbestos mouth, because she grabs them up as fast as she can get her hands on them and they disappear. This has already become a favorite around here. Thanks Christina!

Killer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2003
I have come to the conclusion that the best recipes are also sometimes the simplest. This is an excellent recipe. Easy to make and tastes wonderful. I did find that the cake needed double the baking time and I put a large pan of hot water on the bottom rack to humidify the oven. Make sure to bake it in the middle of the oven to slow browning. The other reviews were right, the crust had too much butter for me. But this was so good that my 3 year old took off with mine, ate every bite and she's not much for any kind of cake. Thanks for sharing a tasty recipe!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2002
I've made these twice. They were a crowd pleaser each time. Time consuming, but since I don't eat alot of donuts, this is a keeper.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2002
I have bought my last bottle of Ranch dressing! Excellent! It was very thick, so I thinned it with milk. I skipped the dill, I didn't have any, and I used fresh chives. It is excellent on baked potatoes.

A Plus Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
This cake was excellent. I left the carrots as coarse as the coconut and it was really good. My daughter said she had never had carrot cake that had carrots that you could see before. I left out the raisins since it would have been a fight to get anybody to try it if I put them in and I used pecans instead of walnuts. I'll make this again.

Roast Beef and Cheese Roll Ups

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2003
This was too salty, but I can't really blame the recipe for that. I think I will try this again with my own roast beef, an eye of round roast made with onions, salt, pepper, thyme, bay leaf, a little brown sugar, and beef broth, cooled and sliced thin would make small rolls . The cheese was excellent and I think it could be used in other places, like manicotti. I'll try this one again.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
Marinated my chicken in McCormicks's Ginger Teriyaki, and grilled. I think I can pass on the cellophane noodles as they add nothing for me but I might try chow mein noodles next time. The dressing was surprisingly good for what is very few ingredients. I have a recipe for the Wendy's Sesame dressing that is excellent, but it takes dribs and drabs of about 20 different ingredients, so this was nice for the simplicity factor. It was a good experiment for a very warm January day.
