Mint Buttercream Frosting With Dark Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
This was great! Got so many compliments, and many people have asked for the recipe. I used the frosting on a delicious chocolate cake, so in order to not have too much chocolate, I left out the chocolate glaze. I also added the mint extract a little bit at a time so I could make it just minty enough for me. Then I added water instead of milk to thin out the consistency because the milk messes with the color. I definitely had to add more than 4Tbs to get the icing thin enough to frost my cake, it just depends what you are using it for.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
Turned out great! I took another reviewers suggestion, and used shorting to grease the pan. This does the trick much better than butter! Get's the french toast nice and golden without burning. I had just made a loaf of beer bread from the recipe beer bread I and used that for the bread. It was delicious. Melted down some strawberry jam with some water and boiled it until it made a delicious syrup :)

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I am only giving it 4 stars because I changed it, but this is a really good base to start out with. But what is great about brine is that you can really do no wrong, this is because it is more about the moistness instead of the flavor. I mean it add flavor, but if you add orange juice, your turkey isn't going to taste like an orange, maybe only slightly. But I used half a gallon of vegetable broth, and the other half gallon I used apple juice like others. I also used less salt since others complained about saltiness. I didn't have savory, so I didn't use that, but I couldn't tell the difference. I also added some Samuel Adams beer. This Turkey came out so moist and golden. My bf said he thought that turkeys couldn't really look like that. Some said it was best turkey they ever had, and my sister who doesn't like turkey told me that she even enjoyed it

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Easiest cutout cookie recipe. I followed exactly, except, I added 1 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves and 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg and you really don't need to refrigerate the dough that long. I refrigerated for like 10 minutes at the most and it is still so easy to roll out. They are kinda hard to move tho once you cut them out, so I usually just cut them out right on the parchment paper and move that to the cookie sheet. I bake for 8 minutes and they are perfect. Everyone loves them

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I always get compliments on this guac :) I usually add the suggested amount of ingredients, but always end up adding more to my taste. I use salsa instead of tomatoes. It makes it easier then chopping onions and tomatoes and other veggies. You just scoop some spoonfuls of salsa instead and it gives it a better flavor anyway.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
These are so easy and come out so good its hard to believe they are homemade. We used mint Oreos and they tasted like thin mint girl scout cookies! :) To cover them in the chocolate, we found that the best way is to drop 1 or 2 at a time in the chocolate and roll them gently around with a spoon, and then use the spoon to scoop them out and plop them onto the wax paper

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This is the best pancake recipe ever! I always use this one and my friends always ask for the recipe. I follow the recipe exactly and it always comes out perfect and fluffy, and I mean fluffy! Make sure to sift the dry ingredients as the recipe says, and once you combine all your ingredients you can fold in whatever add-ins you want. I like to do blueberries. This recipe makes the best blueberry pancakes ever! If you want a healthy version, I will sometimes add 1/2 or 1 cup of rolled oats to the batter to make hearty filling Swedish Oat Pancakes :) Yummy

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
If you do this right, its the best frosting you will ever make. People always tell me that this is the best frosting they have ever tasted. Be sure to use butter NOT margarine! I used to use margarine and the frosting would always come out oily when done and it would look like it was melting on the cupcakes. I finally realized that I needed to use butter, and of course it came out amazing, not one bit oily. For the part about making the flour mixture, I always just stir it until it looks like a doughy mixture (it never forms a ball) Hope this helps :)

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
This was AMAZING! I made this exactly as the recipe said and used the advice of some and found some sage sausage @ the store. The sage sausage really makes it good, and I even used dried herbs and left out the liver completely and it was soooo good! The best stuffing I ever had, and the best anyone else had ever had too! Everyone called me the stuffing master when I used this recipe. If you can't find turkey stock dont worry, I used chicken stock and it didn't make any difference.
