Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
I decided to make this recipe instead of the one I normally use. My mistake ,please do not cook to 260 it should be 250 degrees. The divinity has a yellow tinge to it now, I used my faithful candy thermometer that I always use. I wish I would have pulled the syrup off at 250, by the way I have made divinity for over 35 years for Christmas. I don't like it but others do. I think the flavor is great if you like sweet candy. Had a perfect low humidity day here in Texas. SO disappointed in the temperature directions, should have checked the old recipe first,

Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I used this a guideline, only changes used 3/4 cup wheat flour because I had 2 cups of blueberries that I had to use up. I added 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring. These were wonderful. Great recipe.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This salad had too many flavors going on . My husband and I did not like it at all. I had intended to use this as a Thanksgiving salad this year, so thankful I made it in advance. The salad dressing taste like mustard with oil and vinegar, you would do much better purchasing a high quality red wine vinegar dressing.

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
As written it's a 3, kick it up , Do not use oil, it makes it greasy. I add 1/2 cup grated carrots, leave off mustard and only use 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup sugar.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Just made these for a church function, I was out of vanilla extract and had to use lemon extract. Yummy. Very pleased. Not overly sweet at all. If you like a sweeter cookie only add about 1/4 cup sugar to the recipe. I thought the flavor was rather bland when I tasted the dough, so I added 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves to my dough, I am sure if I had vanilla extract it would have been perfect, think I will try coconut extract next time and add 1/2 coconut the batter with 1 tablespoon milk..

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I used lemon extract and glad I did because the lemon flavoring was so mild, perhaps this is because I forgot to buy the lemon at the grocery store,Nonetheless, this muffin was denser than I expected for a cupcake. I am just rating the cupcake, since I used my own delicious cream cheese icing with lemon. I would prefer Duncan Hines lemon cake mix add 1/2 cup sour cream to the batter and 1 tsp. lemon extract and save yourself a lot of time and have better tasting cupcakes. Been baking many years. Kind of disappointed in this recipe, because the majority of All Recipes are awesome.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
These did roll out nicely,I roll mine on parchment paper then peel the scraps away. I would not use this recipe, they are rather tasteless to me, I am not a big sugar cookie fan, and if I was making these to take to a function, I suggest you make a small batch first, I believe there are much better recipes. I have about 40 years of cooking and baking experience, not sure why every highly recommended these, I won't.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I whipped the cream separately and then added it to the already combined cream cheese,sugar and flavoring mixtures. It works much better this way, it's much thicker and a better consistency, than just adding the cream to it as instructed.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I have made this twice in the microwave, I did one minute for the first minute, then descended to 45 seconds, then 40 seconds, then 35 seconds, then added butter and did it for 35 more seconds and it was done, no egg whites to strain out, after trying this recipe. I did cut the butter down to by 1/2 of what it called for the second time and it tasted more lemony than the first time. This is great to serve on the side with a lemon cake, as it could get the cake soggy, using it as a filling, unless you serve it fairly soon after making.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Excellent recipe took this to a church luncheon today and rave reviews. I did not add the white sugar and doubled the size of pork and beans in this dish. It is plenty sweet with the 1/3 cup of brown sugar, I fried bacon first then drained most of the bacon grease and saute the meat and onions together. Be sure and season your ground beef with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder.

Carol's King Ranch Casserole

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
DO not use beans nor flour tortillas. Use 8 corn tortillas instead and only 1/2 cup chicken broth. I have substituted Doritos tortilla/corn chips for the corn tortillas also. Be sure and add onion and salt and pepper to the water that the chicken is boiling in. Been a Texan for over 50 years, no beans ever in the King Ranch Casserole. Would not make ithis recipe as it is.t as is.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This biscuit was tasteless, also I followed the instructions to a T, and the middle biscuits were gummy. I would definitely separate before baking these so the biscuits can bake and not be gummy in the middle, actually, I will not use this recipe again.

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This is an absolute keeper. The best white moist cake I have ever tasted. I used a whipped icing and filled layers with pineapple. .I am thinking the next one should have strawberry layers, then trying a lemon cake mix with pineapple the next time. I made this in 3 round cake layers and it took about 38 minutes to bake. So good, don't look any further. This is better than the most expensive cakes I have had at weddings. The secret to a light cake is to mix as directed but add the whipped egg whites to the batter the last minute not with the other ingredients, otherwise, you will have a denser cake, not a light one. Absolutely worthwhile. Been baking over 38 years and this is the best white cake.

Baked Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I sauted one onion in the pan drippings after I browned meat and used 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes and left out the carrot. I had bacon drippings left from the bacon I fried for breakfast, this enhances the meat flavor. Use 1 teaspoon pepper also on the meat. Did not use cheese on mine.

Pineapple Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I am stunned at this cake,it taste more like pineapple bread. It is very heavy and dense, being an experience home baker over 36 years, I should have known better when I didn't view any oil, trust shortening or butter in the recipe. I did not due the sugary icing, trust me you would do better if you purchase a yellow cake mix and dump the pineapple in it.....will never make this again, a real disappointment ......
