Caramel Pretzel Nut Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
GREAT..but a couple changes make it AMAZING... used 2 bags of (lowfat-ha ha) kettle corn. made exactly to directions using pretzels and cashews. Put in large stainless bowl sprayed w/cook spray. (you could also spray inside of paper bag to prevent sticking) Mixed well. Put 2/3 of it in a foil (for easy clean up) roasting pan in oven for only about 5 minutes and then I melted about 8 Dove dark chocolate candies in microwave, tossed chocolate in remaining 1/3 caramel corn and put in fridge to cool. Took about 15 min. Broke up large pieces and added it to remaining cool caramel corn. This is a real treat. Trust me, try it!!!

Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Was origanilly 4* but after making some changes the second time I made it, it definately turned into 5*'s+ > I sprayed the bottom + sides of 9 inch springform pan with cook spray. Pressed the crust up the sides about an inch & 1/2 (alittle thinner on the sides than the bottom.)Definatley use butter in the crust. Couldn't find French vanilla pudding so I did add an xtra 1/2 t. of vanilla to the crust & I upped the brown sugar to 3 Tablespoons. Took about 1/2 cup of chopped up Heath candy bar and gently pushed it into the top of the crust. > I added a Tablespoon of flour to the cream cheese mixture, needed to be alittle firmer. Cooked for 45 minutes @ 350 then sprinkled another cup or so of crushed Heath candy bar on top of cheesecake, but not on the edge of the crust. Turned oven off and left in oven for an additional 15 minutes. Refrigerated in pan till cooled. (at least 5 hours or overnight) Released sides and gently ran spatula under bottom crust to release cheesecake. What a great chocolate Creme Brulee flavor & beautiful presentation. Next time I will double up filling and make a little taller in a 10 inch springform and use for holiday dessert. ENJOY!!!!

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
THESE MERINGUES ARE VERY GOOD. DID MAKE WITH 8 EGG YOLKS AND 2 CUPS OF SUGAR. CUT THE SUGAR IN HALF AND USED "SPLENDA - MEASURES THE SAME AS SUGAR" FOR THE OTHER HALF. CUTS WAY DOWN ON THE CALORIES. YOU CAN ADD ANY TYPE OF EXTRACT, VANILLA, MAPLE, ETC...OR EVEN COCOA POWDER TO THESE TO CHANGE THE FLAVOR, BUT REMEMBER TO ADD ALITTLE EXTRA SUGAR IF ADDING THE EXTRACT TO KEEP UP THE CONSISTENCY OF THE MERINGUES. THE MORE SUGAR THAT YOU ADD THE CRISPIER THEY BECOME. ALSO YOU CAN SPINKLE THESE WITH COLORED SUGAR, CINNAMON AND SUGAR, OR EVEN FLAVORED JELLO (ALSO YOU CAN PUT JELLO IN THEM FOR FRUIT FLAVORED MERINGUES) FOR FUN COLORS AND TASTE, ADD MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS, KIDS LOVE THEM. ALLOW TO BAKE FOR THE FULL 90 MINUTES AND THEM SHUT THE OVEN OFF AND LEAVE IN OVEN FOR ANOTHER HOUR. IF COOKING MORE THAN ONE TRAY ADD ABOUT 10 MINUTES COOKING TIME FOR EACH TRAY AND ROTATE TRAYS 1/2 WAY THROUGH COOKING. THIS HELPS FOR ALL THE MOISTURE TO BE EVAPORATED. MERINGUES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CRISP ALL THE WAY THROUGH, NOT CHEWY IN THE CENTER. CAN PIPE THESE THROUGH A PASTRY PAG WITH LARGE DECORATIVE TIP TO MAKE FANCY MERINGUES. BEST TO BAKE ON PARCHMENT PAPER.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
THIS IS A WONDERFUL RECIPE. I USUALLY DOUBLE IT WHEN I MAKE IT BECAUSE IT DOESN'T LAST VERY LONG, EVERYONE ALWAYS TAKES SOME HOME. WHAT I NORMALLY DO IS START MY HOUR WHEN IT STARTS TO BOIL. I USE WHOLE MILK. I COVER AND SIMMER FOR ABOUT 50 MINUTES, GIVING IT AN OCCASIONAL STIL. MEANWHILE I'VE TAKEN 7 EGGS (1 EXTRA BECAUSE I DOUBLED THE RECIPE) AND BEATEN SLIGHTLY, ADD MY VANILLA, AND FOR THE ADDITIONAL I/2 CUP MILK I INSTEAD USE 1/2 CUP HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM. THIS REALLY HEIGHTENS THE FLAVORS. WHEN IT IS TIME TO ADD TO THE PUDDING I FIRST WHISK ABOUT A CUP OF THE HOT MILK INTO THE EGG AND CREAM AND THEN SLOWLY WHISK MIXTURE, WHILE ON LOW HEAT INTO THE PUDDING STIRRING CONSTANTLY FOR ABOUT 3 MINUTES. I LET SET FOR A MINUTE ON SIMMER AND THEN I STIR IN ABOUT A 1/2 CUP OF BAKING RAISINS. THIS RECIPE DOES FIRM UP AND GET THICKER AS IT COOLS.

Moist Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
THIS IS AWESOME RECIPE FOR CARROT CAKE, THE BEST I'VE EVER MADE, BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT PUTTING IN THAT MUCH OIL IS NOT NECESSARY. INSTEAD I CUT THE OIL IN HALF AND ONLY USED 3/4 C. AND THEN ADDED 3/4 C. OF UNSWEETENED APPLESAUCE. CAKE TURNED OUT MORE FLAVORFUL AND MOIST BESIDES LOSING ALL THOSE CALORIES AND FAT. WILL DEFINATELY MAKE AGAIN. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
EXCELLANT TWIST ON PUMPKIN PIE. I DID PREBAKE THE PIE CRUST (LINED IT WITH FOIL AND ADDED SOME DRY BEANS FOR WEIGHT) FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES THE SECOND TIME I MADE IT AND IT MADE THE CRUST NICE AND CRISPY ON THE BOTTOM. MADE A HOMEMADE CARMEL SAUCE AND DRIZZLED IT WARM ON THE PIE WHEN I SERVED IT. ALSO SERVED IT WITH FRESH, HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM.
