The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I've probably rated this recipe before but I just wanted to add that my sister just informed me that it's not Christmas without these cookies! I make these every year and so many people love them. They are always a hit wherever I take them. Making 3 batches this year!!

Simple Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
When I worked at Baskin Robbins, we made our shakes with a squirt of Simple Syrup, that came in premade containers. I'm sure this was all it was, sugar water. Thanks for the recipe, I never thought about making it at home to get that true Baskin Robbins taste - ice cream, a little milk and a squirt of simple syrup. Also going to try this on my cakes like the other reviews say!

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I think this recipe is GREAT for smaller projects, like cut-outs, making small animals or people or shapes out of it for the cake. However I don't think I would use this recipe to cover an entire cake, or if I did it would definitely take some practice. I was also worried after reading the reviews about how some people said it was too greasy. I cut the recipe exactly in half, and although it was pretty greasy, to me the secret is to refrigerate the fondant overnight. The day I made it, it was glistening and very greasy to the point where I wanted to wipe it off on a paper towel. But after it set up in the fridge overnight, that wasn't a problem at all. And if you do have any pieces that are too shiny, just rub them with some powdered sugar and they will look more matte right away. BUT let me say this!! The taste is FABULOUS! especially compared to other fondants. I would like to play with this some more because this is a fondant I actually wouldn't mind covering a cake with. But as the recipe is now, I don't see how you could lift it up off your work surface in one piece and get it onto a cake. It is just too sticky, even after a night in the fridge. I feel like this recipe is on the right track, just needs something to help with the stickiness. Cornstarch maybe? I don't know. :)

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2003
This chicken was so tender and flavorful, it just looks different with all the spices you can see on the chicken itself. We had a lot of leftovers after our tacos that night and we had the leftovers for lunch on a salad. Very good!

RamJam Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2002
This marinade was pretty good, but not as good as I expected after reading all the reviews. I made this with boneless skinless chicken tenders and made extras to have for leftovers. It is a good marinade that would be good for many different meals, like fajitas, sandwiches, etc. Also great to go along with rice, and good for eating healthy.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 11, 2001
I have made this about 3 times now. The first time I used regular condensed mushroom soup and spaghetti noodles and regular italian dressing mix--it turned out okay. The second time I used the golden mushroom soup and fettucini noodles and mild italian dressing mix--AWESOME. I can't believe the difference it made. I think the change in soup made the biggest difference. I am making this on Mother's Day for 11 people, if that tells you anything!!!!!

Wonderful Almond Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2001
I was looking for a quick cookie recipe using ingredients I had around the house, and these were very quick and wonderful. Didn't have almond extract so I used lemon, and they were so light and airy, just very good. Will make them again!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2001
This was an okay recipe, I liked it, my husband didn't. I butterflied the pork chops because they were so huge, and they came out kind of dry, even after being cooked in the sauce for 6 hours on low. I don't think I would butterfly the chops next time, because the thicker parts tasted better than the edges.

Cola Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2001
I don't know if I used too much ketchup, because I cut the recipe down, but the ketchup flavor was a little overpowering. This turned out okay but I don't think we'll make it again, at least for a while.

Butterfly Honey Pork Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2001
I couldn't believe how well worcestershire sauce goes with pork. It is a large amount which was a little surprising but it was AWESOME. We will definitely make this again and the butterflied chops were so tender after being made on the grill.
