Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Great cookie, but use BUTTER rather than margarine. I only had 1/2 c of Peanut Butter in the pantry so I used it but added an extra 1/4 c of butter and 1/2 c of Toffee chips. They were AWESOME! Mine did spread, probably because of the extra butter, but I wanted them to. I only baked them for 10 min and took them out when the edges got brown. Also the other reviewers are correct, they really needed to cool for a while in the pan or they fell apart. I got 5 dozen cookies out of this recipe and my husband can not stop raving about how chewy and moist they are. Next time I will make them just as the recipe says, but will add some coarsely chopped skinned and salted Virginia Peanuts or cocktail nuts. Toffee chips were a nice extra too! Don't worry about them spreading, I can not stand fat, dry, Oatmeal cookies that end up tasting like woody pulp. A little thinner but moist, buttery and chewy is better to my personal taste. I am adding this recipe to my recipe box! Thanks for the great recipe!

Ellen's Beer,Potato and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
My son in law described this soup as "phenominal". You need to like beer to enjpy this soup because you can really taste the Beer. Just delicious. I am sure beer lovers and others will rave about it.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I made this recipe at least 2-3 times and brought it to work. My husband and my coworkers went crazy over it. Many have asked me for the recipe. I highly recommend this recipe when you have to bring something as a contribution for a potluck holiday party or just because your family is craving pumpkin sweets!!!

Cannoli Cake Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I made this cake a week before Easter and froze it without the whipped cream frosting. Instead of using cream cheese, I used 4 oz.(1/2c)of mascarpone cheese. I also chopped up 1/4c of shelled pistachio nuts and added them when I folded in the mini-chocolate chips to the filling.When I sweetened the whipped cream I also added 1/2 tsp of grated orange zest. I thawed the frozen cake the day before Easter in the Refrigerator and then frosted and garnished the cake on Easter morning. It sat in a cooled garage, covered for three hours before serving, and it was a big hit. My Son-in-Law said it was "absolutely delicious". I will make this again, and maybe add drained, paper-towel dried, and chopped-up maraschino cherries to the filling also, then it will really taste like my Grandma's Cannoli filling. Thanks for the great recipe! P.S. They have asked me to make it again when Family comes into town at the end of April. I know this will be a crowd favorite for years to come!
