Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I don't know what happened but I could not get these to turn out the way they were suppose to. I followed directions exactly EXCEPT I kept them in the refridgerator longer. They just didn't cook correctly. Also, after tossing in powdered sugar they got real mushy as the sugar didn't 'dry'. I made this twice wanting them to work but I couldn't do it. I won't make again b/c I just can't do it correctly (DRATS)! I wish it would have worked.

Roasted Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I am so glad that I tried this recipe as I found it to be a great 'base' recipe. I only had turkey thighs. I 'brined' the turkey thighs with salt water for 4 hours and won't do that again as it came out to salty (my fault). Put lots of butter under the skin and used s/p/season salt. Put butter under thighs in pan also. Needed to add about 15 minutes cooking time. Worked great!!! I will def make this again.

Milk Braised Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I am glad I tried this recipe but found that it just wasn't for me. It was too salty and the meat turned out dry. I did like the 'milk curds' but again...too saltly. I prefer more seasonings. Interesting recipe though...

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I will make this dessert over and over and over again. It was a HUGE hit! I got so many compliments that I starting getting embarrassed. I altered slightly. 1. Used 2 SaraLee frozen pound cakes. 2. Used International Cafe French Vanilla coffe with some Bailey's Irish Cream 3. Layered in triffle bowl as follows- cake, coffee, frosting, Heath Bar Crunchies, cake, coffee, frosting, Heath Bar Crunchies. Made the night before. There were no leftovers. I should have made two! I can't wait to make this again and again. Everyone must make this at least once!!

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
These were just ok. Not much flavor (even after I added seasonings). Probably won't make again.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
OMG! I have never been able to get these cookies to work...these did! Based on reviews I changed a few things. 1. Rolled the dough into small, teaspooned sized balls. 2. Used the lid of a chapstick container to make the indentation for the jam. 3. Placed jam in a baggie and snipped end so I could squeeze into hole without getting it all over. (Worked perfectly!) 3. Placed in fridge for 15 minutes. 4. Baked for 10 minutes and then added just a tad more jam to the cookies cuz a lot melts (I like a lot). 5. Placed back in oven to finish cooking. 6. Used the baggie method again to drizzle on the icing. I can't wait til the next time to make these cookies! Yummy!!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
...FIVE STARS +.... These are awesome. I made the cake and mixed in icing using a fork (I didn't want it too mushy). Left in fridge overnight. Shaped into balls and put balls in freezer for at least 3 hours. Then dipped in the melted chocolate and white chocolate bark. I sprinkled some with crushed pecans and some with crushed Oreos. They are a major hit! They are perfect to place in a box and give as Christmas goodies. I already have another batch in my fridge. I have gotten so many compliments!! Woohoo...my new dessert staple has been found! Thanks much to whoever created this recipe!

Fideo

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
EXCELLENT! I sauted 1/2 onion along with the fideo for about 7 minutes stirring constantly so that the fideo wouldn't burn. Added 2 garlic cloves for 30 seconds. Added 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 can tomato sauce, cumin, and salt. After liquid became creamy I added the 2nd half of the sauce as directed.So I really didn't change it up that much. Just added personal tastes. I will definetly use this recipe again. Oh..when I ate it I had shredded chicken with white corn tortillas on the side. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!

Dreamy Nighttime Drink

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I doubled the honey, the vanilla and the cinnamon. I also added a little Splenda. IT IS WONDERFUL! Reminds me of Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Oyster and Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I used fresh oysters (16oz) and kept everything else mostly the same. I didn't have any sage. I used 2 Jiffy cornbread mixes and that was a little too sweet for me. Next time I will use a non-sweet cornbread. The recipe was wonderful! I did need to add a lot of salt after it was done but I am a salt addict. I like my dressing crunchy and extra done on top so after 45 minutes I turned on the broiler and broiled for about 5-7 minutes and it was yummy! I can't wait to make this for Christmas!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I am glad that I tried the recipe as I had never had brussels sprouts before. The recipe was okay but I found out that I am not a fan of brussel sprouts. I think others will like the recipe a lot as it had a lot of flavor...just not for me.

Day-After-Thanksgiving Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Not happy with the way it turned out. It was pretty mushy and not too much flavor. I won't make again. Others may like it, it just isn't for me. Glad I tried it though...now I know.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
WOW! I made these two days before Thanksgiving to test the recipe. They were so good I almost ate all of them! I will be proud to serve these at Thanksgiving. To add my own special touch I used Truffle Salt instead of regular salt and it was G-R-E-A-T!

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Surprisingly delicious! Based on other recommendations I did add a teaspoon of peppermint extract to the melted almond bark. Next time I will add crushed peppermint candies to the bark before letting it harden. Also, when you add the crushed peppermint on top of the spread out bark you need to smush it into the bark. If not, it won't stick. It didn't harden as well as I would have liked it to. Next time I may add a bit of cornstrach to see if that will help. All-in-all a great dessert! I will make again!

Nana's Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This was wonderful. I will always prepare acorn squash this way from now on. The salt/pepper really help bring out the savory taste.

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Very good recipe. Easy, easy, easy. I doubled the 'cream sauce' as suggested and am glad that I did. I also added bread crumbs to the top while baking and that added a lot of flavor. My 'secret' ingredient...added a pinch of fresh nutmeg to cream sauce. Will def make again. Yum!

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
My boyfriend made this for guests and it was perfect! We didn't have to worry about cooking on the morning of our football game. Everything was done the day before. Made it again on the next football weekend! We make again and again.
