Candied Apples II

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I made this recipe more than once! Candy making is not forgiving a candy thermomorter a must! if you under do it is sticky if you over do it is rock hard. Try using this recipe with red hots (a bag) to flavor and color unstead of red die. makes the flavor good. also can add a little cherry extract. taste like the fairs. Let the candy thermomorter read about 260 than turn heat down to cook rest of the way. this receipe can burn in a half of second after hard crack ball stage. must watch. Also don't kid yourself candy making is dangerous I burned myself trying to save my expensive pan. Heat and water don't mix. I went into the hospital and had my baby that night with a burned scar on my hand. So don't do like myself and have a bunch of screaming kids at the table. the less distraction the better. Oh must have apples layed out on wax paper. use popsicle sticks unstead of the pricy apple sticks. spray wax paper with pam. after apple is dipped and dry use a cheap sandwich bag and tie off with red or green curling string. To remove excess wax peper off apples use a clean new wet rag. To clean pan pour excess syrup in some old crisco can or something you will throw away. soak your pan in dish liquid and water. Recipe is a keeper once you've mastered it. This receipe is not your every day and is very tricky but well worth it! so go ahead and charge like the fairs. or give away. Most likely will ruin a batch or two. but once you've found your magic stick with it! well good luck!!!

Cheesy Potatoes II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Used shredded potato sticks unstead of hashbrown. I also believe my frozen pototoe sticks had seasoning in it like red pepper. also added some jalopine peppers about 5 or 6 whole ones. really added good flavor not spicy just right. did'nt taste like something was missing as usual! didn't need a ton of different cheeses and seasoning to wake it up!

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
This dish has everything in it that my favorite old fashioned receipe does. Wanted to share that they now make lasagna stripes that don't need to be boiled first just put them on the dish layer by layer straight out the box into the pan that bakes in the oven with the rest of the stuff!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I probably will give this 5 stars after I fix my water down fudge, that didn't set up. Thank you mommycherly for sharing to watch the evoporated milk measurements bec thats actually what went wrong. I used a can which is 12 oz when receipe only calls for 5 oz, U bet i'm gonna double it up. It has a good flavor. I used Huge milk choc candy bars too instead of the semisweet choc chip, but thats only bec thats what I have. Thanks 4 receipe!
