Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I got raised eybrows from people who were expecting ham instead of sausage but its the same animal - right?? I used brats that I had gotten on sale. It turned out great and honestly would be even better with the ham which I will try next time!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
My favorite. very easy, very fast, and very tender. I use it for anything that requires a pie crust. Make sure you dont over work the dough. I just rake my fingers through it until it is mixed and then plop it in a gallon sized zipper bag to refrigerate it. Then I knead it in the bag plop it on the counter and roll. wonderful results every time!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
TO DIE FOR! I just love the fact that there is no corn syrup! I made a double batch and it filled my deep dish 9 inch glass pie pan perfectly. I followed the suggestions to cook at 350 for 15 then 300 for 55 - it wrked perfectly! I also added more nuts on top which may not have been necessary as the nuts sort of float to the top as it bakes. Make sure when you add the melted butter to the whipped eggs the butter has cooled or you will get scrambled eggs! I tempered the eggs and it was fine. I used the recipe for Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust instead of a store bought. Why go to the trouble to make scratch pie and use a store bought crust? the recipe is very easy and is my favorite.

Funnel Cakes IV

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Very tasty! I added some vanilla extract for a bit more flavor. Instead of making big cakes I made "bites" that are about the size of donut holes and they are a hit sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon!

Beef and Garden Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I made this exactly with only one variation - I left out the orzo pasta. It was great! I made xtra to freeze it was so good!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I put too manuy apples in I think because I ended up with apple cobbler instead of crisp! lol! But the taste was fantastic. I cored and cubed the apples and left the skins on. I used gala and granny smith. Next time I will use less apples and maybe leave out the water - it didnt need it with the extra apples. I was very pleased with the results though - if a failure is this good imagine how tasty the real thing is!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
All I can say is WOW! I made this at my cafe one day for a quick breakfast special. One lady took a bite, then another, and ran back to me and said, "This is the best thing I have even put in my mouth!" After an awkward pause I just smiled and said, "thank you!" I did do two things differently - first I had leftover ham I wanted to use so I subbed that for the bacon. Second I used a three cheese mix instead of all cheddar. I also topped it with a bit of cheddar half way through cooking. It is a regular on my menu now! :)

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
OK when I went to make these my waffle iron broke, but I had several hungry mouths to feed!!! So I quickly thinned the batter a tad with some milk and made pancakes instead! They were light and fluffy and the flavor was fantastic! lol! I am assuming that if I had been able to make them as waffles the flavor would have been just as good! :)

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
It always dissapears quickly! I always use my own home made tortilla chips and precook the chicken breasts in the oven. That way it is so quick and easy to toss together!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Wonderful!! To make it even better use pecans instead of walnuts and you get a praline like top! Be carefule not to use too big a pan or there wont be enough batter to spread two layers. I always double the recipe and use a smaller pan or a bundt pan for that layered look.

Chocolate Nut Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Moist, easy, and very good! My only complaint is that I like a deep chocolate flavor to my baked goods and this was a bit light for me. Next time I will add chocolate chips and i think it will be perfect!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
So good! Easy to make even with the long list of ingredients. I made a huge pot and it disappeared fast. Make sure to put the shred cheese on top - it is a great touch! As good as it is the first day it is even better the next day - if you manage to have any left!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I am determined to master this recipe! I make scratch biscuits at my diner each morning and I have tried this recipe several times. Here is what I have found. First, if you roll them to the 1 inch thickness suggested they rise while baking but I have found they brown on the outside before fully cooking on the inside. When I did a half an inch thick dough it turned out much better. Second, I thought they were a bit too sweet so I cut the sugar in half. I like a savory biscuit with my sausage gravy! Third, I have decided that bigger isn't necessarily better. I DO like the flavor of these biscuits which is why I keep tinkering with them, but I no longer lust after the rediculously tall rise that is promised. I think the taste is worth it even without the height!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Very nice rise. I added a bit more salt as they were a tad bland for me. I also tried them with garlic, butter, and cheese mixed in - very nice!

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Very moist - very quick. While I usually avoid recipes that involve just doctoring up a cake mix this one had a little something more to it. It evoked more of a home made flavor and I used to to prepare an emergency dessert for a family outing. It was gobbled up!! Since I am famous for my scratch desserts no one suspected there was a cake mix involved - it was THAT good! I will keep it (secretly!) in my recipe box to use again!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Ok, I did not like this at all. It was not sticky - I don't know why they even named it that. I was looking for the famous “sticky chicken” recipe – this was NOT it. It did not resemble any rotisserie chicken I ever got from a deli at all. Like so many others I do not understand the rave reviews – it doesn’t deserve it AT ALL. My suggestions to salvage this recipe if you must use it 1) Cut down on the onion unless you LOVE onions! 2) Don’t expect a sweet glazed chicken - it will be covered in VERY STRONG red powder. Nothing sweet or sticky about it! 3) Unless you ADORE strongly spiced chicken DO NOT use more regardless of what other reviewers say! In fact, use less! MUCH LESS!!!! You can always sprinkle on more before you eat it if you like. 4) Be ready to make a gravy from the pan drippings – after such a long bake the chicken is dry - you will need it!!

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Made these and took the advice in other reviews to cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. They were great! I had to cook them an extra 20 minutes until the toothpick test came out clean. Not sure if it was something I did or just not being used to the new oven but the extra time did not hurt them. They really do taste a lot like pecan pie! I will be adding this recipe to my list of usuals!
