Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
Fan-Freakin-Tastic! I followed other's advice...1/2 c oil, 1 egg, cake mix, 2 tbsp water, 1 cup of mint choc chips into Betty Crocker Triple Choc Fudge cake mix. Baked at 350 for 9 minutes. The cookies turned out thick and chunky looking with the right amount of crunch on the outside and little bit soft on the inside. I don't care for chewy cookies so these were perfect. One of the cookies didn't get any mint chips and I tasted it "plain"...the taste was a little dull as other's have reviewed. These cookies are best with something incorporated into the batter...nuts, pb chips...something. This is how I will make cookies from now on. Love this!

Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
Getting an angel food cake out of the pan is the toughest part, regardless of the recipe. If you baked yours in a bundt cake pan, turn the pan upside down and let the cake “hang” on the neck of a glass bottle for at least 2 hours before you attempt to remove the cake. Should be a lot easier.

Chicago Style Stuffed Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
The crust is the key to knocking this recipe out of the park. But, if you've never worked with dough before, read on... Here are Tips for working with/making your own bread/pizza dough: 1) if the water you add to the yeast is even 1 degree too hot, the sugar/yeast/water mixture will not foam and your dough ultimately will not rise. If you proceed not realizing that the mixture isn't foamy enough, you may try to use this dough and the results will be unflavorful, tough dough...like the way a piece of white bread looks after you've rolled it into a ball. The temp of the water really matters b/c it can kill the activity of the yeast. If you don't have a thermometer, your Safe bet is to use lukewarm water. Better than too hot. Once the yeast mixture is foamy, mix in the dry ingredients and put the dough ball into a bowl greased with olive oil. Cover with a damp kitchen towel in a warmer part of the kitchen...dough should expand twice it's size. 2) for the chic pizza dough...use the cornmeal. Makes it authentic Chic style and personally, I prefer the taste. 3) bread flour, sifted, is always better than all purpose flour for bread making. I only use all purpose flour if I'm desperate. 4) for the pan...springform is a good and easy way to get deep dish effect and super easy to remove (obviously)...but if you don't have one, use iron skillet if you can. This is a good recipe. With fresh ingredients and some HOT Italian sausage, it's a showstopper!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Fluffiest is right. These pancakes were over an inch tall. I added a touch of vanilla and chocolate chips. I prewarmed the skillet on my ceramic cooktop range on 4 and cooked each pancake for exactly 1 min 45 seconds on the first side, then 20 seconds once flipped. They were perfectly golden! I love this recipe and will continue to use it. I recommend it.

Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
Heated the condensed milk and butter in the microwave for 2 mins first, then just stirred in the choc chips. They melted just fine. ...did it that way b/c I was afraid to accidentally overheat the chips and "cook" them, you know, where they get crusty and then unusable. So, I didn't even microwave the chips. The recipe was done in less than 5 minutes and my family literally thought I spent hours... hee hee! It was great!!

Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
This is seriously the best soup I've ever made. I threw it together bc I had some leftover broth and about 6 carrots I that I didn't have plans for. I used beef broth instead of chicken. It's fantastic!

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
SOOO GOOOD I ate it for breakfast the next day! I had to improvise a little because I didn't have chicken or the enchilada sauce. I cooked ground turkey in taco seasoning instead of the chicken. And I mixed tomato sauce with taco seasoning to substitute the enchilada sauce. Oh, and I added waaay more cheese. It was crazy good and I'm eating it right now!

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Had to seriously revise because of lack of ingredients! You'll laugh when you read this I'm sure... substitute nutmeg for cinnamon, garlic powder for onion salt, add a little ground ginger, substitute milk for plain yogurt mixed with water until just a little runny. It was AWESOME!

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Almost too greasy to eat but the flavor is pretty good. I used green onions instead of regular - it's all I had. I spooned 8 tablespoons of grease off the top. Way too much for me. Maybe less cheeseore butter next time and/or an added starchy ingredient to absorb the grease. ?

Spaghetti Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Slight modification make INCREDIBLE flavor improvement. When you're simmering the spaghetti sauce, mix a packet of Old El Paso taco seasoning with water according to packet directions. Add the taco seasoning to the spaghetti sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes on low so the flavors will blend. Add browned groud beef if you wish. This significantly changes the flavor and is deeeelish! You'll love it!
