Haunted Oreos®

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
The Oreos are so festive for Halloween. I melted the white chocolate chips in a heat proof glass large measuring cup. I placed the cup in the microwave and stirred after every 20 seconds until melted. Insert a toothpick before coating the Oreos. I also placed the oreos on cooling rack so I didn't have to scrap off the extra melted chocolate around the edges. I added some yellow and red food coloring for the pumpkins. I also bough some black food coloring for the pumpkin eyes. The container is a 12 oz. cup cut down to two inches. I used tacky glue to add scrapbook paper and added a ribbon. Add candy and Oreos to make a cute give away Halloween treat.

Delicious Popcorn Crunch

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
The sweet popcorn was easy to make. The sugar syrup was not too hard or too soft. I made some witches' shoes out of black cardstock and scrapbook paper. I added the popcorn to a clear bag and tied it with a ribbon and placed in the witches' shoes. It was so fun to blog about the project here on AR. See my blog.

Erin's Fun Turkey Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
I really thought this sounded like a fun recipe. Maybe it is me, but I had trouble with this recipe. First, I couldn't find the string licorice. Next, when I dropped the cookie on the baking sheet the cookie did not spread, it just stayed in a ball. I was wondering if butter was left out. Last, the directions do not say whether frosting is used even though I assume it probably was to adhere the candy corn and other candies to the cookie. I think that was not stated clearly in the recipe. I hope Erin can tell me what I did wrong.

Slow Cooker Chocolate-Covered Nuts

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
Excellent! A nice way to make a bunch of candy for gifts. These were so easy. I used a melon ball scooper because I wanted small servings. You could probably add some mini m & m's, or other candy. Very easy to make. I was worried the mixture would dry up before I finished scooping the candy onto the waxed paper. The recipe made so much that I better give some away to prevent me from eating it all.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
We love pulled pork. My family was surprised they liked the slaw on top of the pulled pork. Be sure to have extra BBQ sauce on hand, in our case it is Sweet Baby Rays. This was an easy clean up with the Reynold's slow cooker bag.

Texas Hotdog Sauce-

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2014
I really wanted to like this recipe. It sounded so good. I let my family rate this recipe. My family was not a fan of this recipe. In order to please my family, I did tweak the recipe. I doubled the recipe. I used a whole can of tomato soup, 1/2 cup of ketchup, 1 tsp. mustard, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. of onion powder. Also, the cinnamon was not something my family likes in a topping for hot dogs. My family also didn't like the bread crumbs. So, I would leave those two items out. To thicken it, I would make a roux with flour. After all the changes, my family rated this recipe as a 4.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
A comforting stew with a zing. I only used 1/2 tsp. of New Mexico Chili powder because it is so hot. I did make a roux so the stew was thicker. The bread bowl was the perfect way to eat this stew! I used the Reynolds liners which makes it a breeze to clean up.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
This salad is excellent. I used almonds in the salad because my family is not fond of sesame seeds or poppy seeds. I also used 1/2 the sugar as suggested by others. I could eat this salad every day!

Morning Delight Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2014
My daughter and I enjoyed eating this quiche. The quiche has sausages in every bite along with plenty of cheese and a hint of cilantro. I liked the hash brown crust instead of using a dough crust. Make sure you thaw out the hash browns and then blot the hash browns with a paper towel.

Refreshing Cucumber Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
Very easy to make. Make sure your dry the spinach well or you will have a lot of liquid in the salsa. I love cucumbers and this recipe with spinach was lemony good.

Jenny's Lime Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
The chicken was very moist. I only used 1/2 of the mayo and 1/2 the parmesan. I added some garlic powder and parsley. If your chicken doesn't brown at 17 minutes broil under the broiler for a few minutes.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
We make these beans all the time. Everybody has different tastes. So for my family, I had to make a few adjustments. We like our beans less salty and with less pepper. Use 1/2 the salt, only add 1/4 tsp. of pepper, 1 T. garlic, no cumin, or jalapeno. Kids will eat the beans.

Chef John's Rustic Italian Corn Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
An easy bread to make. I kneaded the bread by hand and was surprised how easy it was to do. The bread was crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. My husband loved the bread with butter.

Easy Skillet Sausage and Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
My husband loved this easy to make sausage combination. I served the sausage combo over quinoa. Adding onions would make it perfect! There were no left overs. I would say it is a winner.

Sweet and Sassy Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
I cut the recipe in half, cutting the ingredients down to a fourth would be better. The popcorn was very sticky and the heat was not what I was expecting.

Cream Cheese Shortbread

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2014
I had trouble with the dough being too sticky even though I tried to use a small amount of the milk. I tried refrigerating the dough. I ended up rolling the dough between two sheets of waxed paper sprinkled with powdered sugar. When I baked the shortbread, even though I used parchment paper the bottom was very brown. After tasting the shortbread, it was like a biscuit.

My family liked the salmon. I think the yogurt added a lot of flavor to the salmon as well as the lemon.
