Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
I think this recipe needs some detail instructions for first timers. Cook the sugar mixture briskly, unstirred and undisturbed, for 10-15 minutes, until the temperature reached 255 degrees on a candy thermometer, or a drop of the mixture in cold water forms a firm almost brittle ball. I found the 10-15 minutes, was just as important as the temperature. Next, beat the second mixture for another 10 minutes or so (very important time), loses its gloss and is firm enough to hold its shape in a spoon. Stir in the nuts at once. Great taste and texture. Hope this helps.

Texas Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2001
UPDATE: I changed the 1/2 cup shortening for 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Much better now. This is my hubby's favorite cake. He is from Nebraska and they call it a "Tommy Cake". I couldn't find his Mom's "Tommy Cake" recipe, so I looked until, I found one very similar to her's. He said it was just like the one he remembered as a child. We served it at a Christmas dinner this year and it was a big hit.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I made The Alfredo for dinner last night. My hubby and I have 3 almost grown sons at home, their friends and a long Memorial weekend, so I doubled the recipe. I switched the fettuccini for bowtie pasta and substituted the Italian seasoning with a premixed Alfredo seasonging package from the grocery store.. I mixed the bowtie with the chicken sauce and everyone loved it. Other than those 2 changes, I made the recipe exactly as it is written. I didn't omit any of the ingredients. The only complain, I forgot how difficult it is to make a good white sauce.. LOL, but it was worth it. I wish I could give it 6 stars. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I have been making this salad for about 2 years. It is the best recipe. It is better than a traditional potato salad. I added some yellow mustard and green onions. Also, I cook and dice the potatoes, add salt and pepper and let set in the refrigerator over night. Thnak you for sharing with us.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was my first time to make a real marinara sauce. It's perfect for my spaghetti, Ziti and pizza dishes. I triple the recipe and freeze the rest. Also, I make it the day before and let it set over night in the refrigerator. So easy to make!!! Thanks for sharing.

French Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
I made these French loaves today in my bread machine. I let the bread machine mix the ingredients and then I removed the dough and put it into a 4 QT glass bowl and let it rise in my warm oven for 1 hr. Brushed melted butter and garlic powder before I rolled it into a loaf and added the egg wash twice as stated in the recipe. It turned out with a crispy crust and soft inside. There is only 1/2 loaf left this evening-so AWESOME. Thx for sharing this easy recipe.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
These are so good. I cooked them at 250 degrees for 4 hours and the meat fell off the bones. I added a rub to meat before I added the BBQ sauce. My 4 sons and hubby loved them. Thanks so much.

I've been making this recipe for about 3 months. My family loves it!!! I use the "Best Marinara Sauce Yet" from this web site and ricotta cheese, instead of the jar sauce and provolone. So Good!!! Thanks for sharing.
