No Fail Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I made a mistake but it came out perfect. I put 2 cups of Whole Wheat flour in separate bowls and added 1/4 tsp salt. I cut in 1 cup of butter and then measured 1 egg, 1 tsp. vinegar and cold water...forgetting that this measurement was for 4 cups of flour, I put the whole amount into the bowl with 2 cups flour and the salt. I was pleasantly surprised that the dough was perfect and very easy to roll out between layers of plastic wrap and very delicious and flaky. I will use the same measurements again. Sometimes mistakes are rewarding. I may cut back on the butter and use 1 1/2 cups instead of 2 cups. I will definitely use my "mistake recipe" again.

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I took some suggestions from other reviews about this recipe needing some spicing up. I decided to marinate the chicken in the egg with added seasonings. After pounding 1 1/2# of chicken breasts I cut it into 2 in wide strips. I beat 2 medium eggs with 3 Tablespoons Tiger Sauce (Reily Foods Co.-New Orleans) 1 tsp. sea salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder, & 1 tsp. onion powder- marinated the chicken in the frig for about 3 hours. I used 1 cup mashed potato flakes (herb/butter) and 1 cup Panko bread crumbs - mixed in some paprika and a little garlic salt. I decided to treat my familiy and fried the strips in veggie oil for 4 minutes. They were golden, crispy and OH so delicious!!! We dipped them in Honey Mustard salad dressing and Tiger Sauce. With the changes I have to give this basic recipe five stars and will definitely use it again. Sometime I will try baking the strips on a rack placed over a cookie sheet. However, I don't think frying once in a while it too bad for a treat. Enjoy!!!

Ice Cream Kolacky

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
There's hope for this recipe. After almost throwing this dough out the back door, I took a deep breath and decided there must be an answer to making this combo work. I thought about the ice cream and the fact that it needed to freeze up in order to make the dough firm up. I put a cup of the dough in the freezer for about 15 minutes to see if it would firm up. In the meantime, I mixed a cup of powdered sugar and a cup of flour together for rolling out the dough. (My mother-in-law taught me to use an old sheet for rolling out dough..an old German trick which works well and is an easy cleanup). I coated the sheet well with the sugar/flour mixture and them rolled the dough into a ball and then the dough was easy to roll out. I had to keep flipping the dough over to keep it well dusted and kept dusting the rolling pin too. I used a biscuit cutter to cut the circles and they flopped right out of the cutter on to the Pam sprayed cookie skeet. The first batch stuck to the cookie sheet and that's when I decided to use Pam. I put an indention in each cookie and used cherry jam which ran quite a bit. Oh, I also added a 1/2 cup powdered sugar to the dough because it tasted bland. All in all the cookies were a hit with my husband and they did taste pretty good. I don't know if I will try this again because it was a lot of work. Another thing confusing was the softness of the butter. Mine was soft so I did not get a crumbled mixture. I guess the butter should be cold.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
AWESOME!!!! AWESOME!!!! AWESOME!!!! I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could. Oatmeal raisen cookies are my very favorite and I will forever use this recipe. I loved how the dough rolled so easily after chilling it. I added 1 cup of raisens and 1/2 cup of pecans. I used Pam lightly on the cookie sheets and after baking I let them cool for 5 minutes and the cookies lifted off the cookie sheet very easily. After I rolled 1 tablespoon of dough in a ball, I flatened the dough slightly with my fingers and they came out just perfect after baking for 9 minutes. I thought putting more sugar on top would be too sweet since I added the raisens. Thank you Bittersweet 1 for this fantastic recipe and Merry Christmas!!!!

Chicken Manicotti Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I'm rating the Alfredo Suace only!!! I would give this Alfredo sauce 10 stars and a Blue Ribbon. I wanted something special for a family party and decided to make chicken alfredo. This alfredo sauce was rated very good so I chose to use this recipe. It was very simple to make and was more than enough for a 1 pound box of pasta. I used 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup of half and half....worked perfect. My guests were diving in for seconds and complimented the dinner over and over. I'm planning on making chicken and shrimp alfredo for Christmas Eve dinner. Yummy...can't hardly wait. Thanks Jeff for a fantatic Alfredo sauce.

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Oops..forgot to add something... I allowed the dough to rise about 2 1/2 hours. I started the oven temp at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes and then raised the temp to 375 for browning and they came out picture perfect. When I did a test baking at 400 the bottoms got to brown. And, yes this recipe makes a lot of dough so you might want to freeze half.

Pumpkin Pecan Pie Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
This recipe sounded really good so I gave it a try. I was disappointed with the first taste. The oatmeal/flour crust has a bland taste and dry texture. The pumpkin filling could have been a little sweeter and needed more spices. I don't think that I will make this recipe again.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
FANTASTIC!!!! So easy to work with. I followed a very helpful suggestion from a review on this site and I am glad that I did. I used 2 1/2 teaspoons of ginger and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 3/4 teaspoon cloves. Great taste! I also doubled the recipe with no problems at all. This is definitely going into my cookbook. My grandchildren will love them this Christmas.
