Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
I honestly think this may be one of those rare recipes that you just can't mess up. This was sooooo good!!! Even though I had a few of those uh-oh moments, I couldn't ask for anything better. My first "gotcha" was that substituteded canned tomatoes for fresh. I used one 28oz petite diced and one 28 oz can crushed. This didn't quite equal out to the 7 1/2 cups so I added another 14.5 oz petite diced. It was just a little shy of 8 cups... not too much over. I followed all other instructions exactly. Once everything was combined, I was like- this is good... but too tomatoey. I know, its tomato soup.. but then I realized that the sub'd tomatoes was WAY more than if I had fresh. Off to "The Buzz" I go looking for suggestions, thanks so much to "Sassyoldlady", "sueb", "misskitty", "manella" and "Cheryls cooking now!" for all your suggestions! I added 1 TBS sugar, I sprinkled Basil and onion powder 2 TBS butter and about 1/4 cup milk and let simmer for a few minutes. That fixed the flavor right up! Once it was all done... In used my immersion blender to smooth out the bits of carrts and tomatos. It had a texture I was accustomed to... I was thinking it should be more creamy. The immersion blender didn't quite cut it for me and the sieve made it too liquidy. I put it in on liquefy in the blender and voilà, it was just right. No tiny bits of carrots or tomato and extremely creamy! LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Review 5167 here!! LOL! These are just perfect. I wanted to try this recipe due to the overwhelming # of reviews. After printing it out, I went to collect my ingredients. To my dismay.. I had no milk. The one thing I always have.. milk. Not to be out done, I substituted the milk with evaporated milk using 7oz of evaporated and 7 oz of water. The batter wasn't thick. It was perfect. I did let the egg set out for about 15 minutes before cracking and I beat it a little before adding to the milk mixture. Then I added the melted butter in the mix.. After all the wet ingredients were blended well, I added to the dry ingredients. I also sifted the dry ingredients 2x as someone had suggested. These were light, fluffy and delish!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
My DH really enjoyed this, but for me it was just okay. Maybe I should try using sausage as this was right bland.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This ended up more like Chili beans. I should have read the ingredients better before selecting this one. I was looking for a tradional Pino Bean ( to go with cornbread) type. The family liked this pretty good, it just wasn't for me.
