Classic Irish Boiled Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This is a really easy dinner to put together. Not much to it but waiting on it to be done. I usually use a pre-seasoned pork shoulder for this, but it always comes out really TENDER! I've never had room for all the vegetables, so I always omit the cabbage and add in whatever I like until the pot is virtually overflowing. Perfect meal every time!

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I've made this cookies a few times and every time I have to get them out of my house as soon as possible or else I will end up eating them myself! I prefer to use dried cranberries and I leave out the rasins or it's too hard for me to mix the batter. But it's delicious every time! : )

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I made this just a few weeks ago. Very easy instructions, the cooker was much smaller than the recipe called for so I bought corned beef that was about 2.5 lbs, and I still ended up cutting off some of it to make it fit better. I didn't use the beer (don't like the taste), just beef broth. The corned beef was SO TENDER! We could've used a spoon instead of a fork to eat it. I just didn't like how the vegetables turned out taste wise. I know I wouldn't have liked it with the beer definately, but the potatoes were saturated with the flavor of the broth, but the beef, carrots and cabbage were delicious! I want to try this again only trying a different broth that's not so salty. : )

A Plus Fair Corn Dogs

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Tried this out over the weekend with friends. These turned out really well, the dusting of flour on the hot dogs before dipping them in the batter definately helped! The only problem we had was that if the oil was too hot cooking the batter on the outside, there would still be some uncooked batter on the inside. Just try not to cook the dogs up too quickly! I'll be making these again, they were great! : )

Cinnamon Supper Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
I just made this cake for my husbands birthday. He LOVED it! I substituted applesauce for the shortening to help reduce the fat content and I doubled the recipe. (doubling the baking time) It turned out great! I was a little worried when I tasted the batter that it might be too sweet, but it was just right after baking. I didn't use all the 'topping', but put on enough to where the butter had stopped soaking through. (about half, I'm not big on powdered sugar, I also added more cinnamon to it.) This is a great simple cake to make. I know I'll be making it again. :)

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
I'm not an expert bread maker, but this recipe was easy to follow and my bread turned out great! I wasn't sure if I would actually get the 3 loaves lised as the yield, but I sure did! I wish the bread was a bit sweeter, next time I'll just try to add a whole cup of sugar instead of just a 1/2 cup. Although, my husband did eat half a loaf by himself the first day I made these. I had to hide the other two so they'll last. It is a great recipe, I'll definately be making this again!

Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
This pie turned out pretty well. I did follow the advice of others and only put in 3/4 cups of sugar after tasting the strawberries, and also putting in 1/2 cup flour instead for thicker juice. There was another person who suggested baking it on high heat (425) for the first 1/2 hour, then lowering the heat to 350 for another 20 minutes, I did follow that. It turned out really well! I must also add I left out the cinnamon, and totally forgot about the butter until it was in the oven. Once it cooled, and it was cut up for dessert there really wasn't any juice spilling out anywhere, it had all been congealed. Everyone loved it! And on the upside, it also made the house smell like warm strawberry jam. I'll definitely be making this again. :)

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
I'm giving this two stars because I was able to eat the meat, but nothing else. Granted everything was cooked right, it just all tasted like Guinness...except the meat for the most part. I'd strongly suggest only making this dish if you actually LIKE the taste of Guinness because no matter what you do, the vegetables, especially the potatoes will soak up the beer flavor. If I try this again I will only be using a beef broth or something similar.
