Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
I was surprised that this was really good. I was hesitant, and even thought it may not be good after putting it together, but we realy liked it. As some others suggested, I added 1/2 cup red wine (merlot) and used 1/2 the onion soup. I served with garlic mashed potatoes and the whole family liked this!! Will make again!

Mrs Espy's Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
An excellent sauce that I will use, unless I find something even better. You can adjust the chili powder for more or less spice; I used standard chili powder and some Chipotle and Ancho chili powder and not even the full amount the recipe calls for and it was too spicy, so I added 2 8 oz cans of tomato sauce to reduce the burn! I also added a couple tsp. of sugar as others have suggested. I used chicken bullion in place of water for flavor. I HIGHLY recommend this sauce!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
FIVE stars just isn't enough for these!!! One week ago, my husband and I ate a Cinnabon, and when my husband tried these, he said "OH MY GOSH, that is EXACTLY like a Cinnabon!!" It's true, and these are extremely awesome. My mom said, "Those aren't Cinnabons, they're better!" I've made other "clone" recipes before, but this one truely is the same thing. I don't have a "bread maker," but instead a mixer that has dough hooks, and that's how I made them. I used fast rise yeast, and combined it with the dry ingredients. I mixed (separately from the dry ingredients) the melted butter with the warm milk, then I put in the eggs, and added all that to the dry ingredients. The dough hooks worked great; I "kneaded" with those for 6 minutes. I sprayed a large glass bowl with cooking spray, and let it rise in a heated oven (I put it on the "warm" setting). One thing that was strange for me was that it took so long to rise, both times. Don't know why...anyway, I will surely make these again and again and again!

Caramels

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
This recipe is sooooo awesome. It is a clone (tastes exactly the same) as Leatherby's ice creamery near my house. I did not cook them so that they were hard caramels, as I was looking to make a caramel ice cream sauce. I have found the perfect caramel recipe. It does take a bit of time to get them to 250 (It took me over 1/2 hour just to get it to reduce to make a sauce), but it's worth the time. Also, I used a 3 qt saucepan, which was just big enough. I, like others, recommend using a large saucepan.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I make this for my MOPS (young moms) group at church. It's wonderful!!!! I use that thick Texas Toast (Winco carries a maple-flavored) and cut the crusts off. Don't use plain, thin bread--it won't do. Also, I leave out the Grand Marnier...you can add more vanilla or sub Wilton's butter flavoring, if desired. If possible, let bread come to room temp before baking. Oh yes, and I recommend using a glass pan, and not a metal pan-the caramel bottom gets too hard in a metal pan.

Steak Tip Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2004
This is a GREAT marinade. I was a little unsure, with the BBQ sce and the Italian dressing, but truly, when I smelled it all put together, it was excellent. It smelled so good marinating the top sirloin steaks I used! I marinated them for about an hour and a half, and they could have been done longer, but the time was sufficient. The only thing I may add next time is a little more salt. Oh, also, I used Bulls Eye BBQ and Bernsteins Light Cheese Fantastico dressing. This marinade has the perfect amount of sweet and tangy, and did not overwhelm the beef taste. I may add a little salt next time, but otherwise, will make as directed.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
OUTSTANDING. This recipe is great, company worthy, food! I halved the recipe, which was enough for my family of three, and I think the whole recipe would make a lot. I mostly followed as directed, except I did add the sauce directly over the noodles as some suggested and I added a little garlic and onion powder (I left out the onion) to the Prego Traditional sauce I bought. The provolone cheese and sour cream made this just so creamy and DIFFERENT, which is why this was so great. I found it easy to prepare and cannot say enough good things about it. FIVE STARS is not enough!

Funnel Cakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
These were great! I agree with someone else who said skip the funnel, use a measuring cup. The funnel didn't work too well. Also, I had to use more than just 1 cup milk to make it thin enough. I would recommend at least a cup and a half, maybe more. I didn't actually measure what I was putting in, I just poured and stirred in the milk until it looked runny enough. I topped these with the Supreme Strawberry topping from this site. Overall, not healthy at all, but soooo good! Oh, also I added a little more sugar to the batter as well as some vanilla extract.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! That being said, these are more of a caramel roll, and a little less of a traditional cinnamon roll. I would recommend the Clone of a Cinnabon recipe if you want a traditional cinnamon roll. Also, I used regular milk instead of the powdered milk and they came out great. However, I needed to add quite a bit more flour to make the dough workable. I think even without the addition of regular milk, it may have needed more flour . The Dough is hard to roll. I recommend following the instructions and simply patting into a rectangle. This way the dough will stay soft also. I patted into approx. 12 by 6 rectangle, which made 12 rolls. I think doubling the caramel sauce would also be good. And, I cooked the sauce only 1 minute as another suggested, which was a good idea. It kept the sauce softer. Don't know that I would ice these, although I did consider it. Next time I think the double caramel sauce will suffice in keeping this a traditional caramel roll. I used a little more than 1 tsp of yeast. I don't know why all cinnamon roll recipes say that the dough will rise in 30 minutes. Mine never ever do. It usually takes 2 hours. However, I recommend BEING PATIENT. The last 2 times I made Clone of Cinnabon, I got impatient and tried sticking the dough in a low heat oven, and it ruined the dough.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2005
Great pancakes. Not overly sweet, since you only use 3 T of sugar, which is nice since syrup is so sweet. These pancakes are a little spongy, and they taste more like restaurant pancakes than most I've tried. I topped some with syrup and some with strawberries and both were great. Also, they re-heat well in the toaster oven. Try these, you won't be disappointed.

Fudgy Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
Very good!! The best thing about these is that they are dairy free!!! I cant have dairy products and these don't require butter or margarine which both contain dairy. I sifted the cocoa and soda as another suggested and also added the salt and vanilla right to the batter instead of w/flour. These are fudgey and moist and great. Highly recommend.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Simply outstanding! Moist and flavorful. I used dairy free margarine (some are not dariy free, but the one I used was) for both the muffins and topping and we loved them. This made 12 large muffins for me. Two of the bananas I used were the overripe kind and one was fresh. I found it to be enough banana flavor. Also, the topping was superb!! I disagree with others who said the flavor did not go well with the muffins. It did and it was just the right amount. The only thing I may add next time is some vanilla to the batter. Oh, and I also added about a tsp of rolled oats to the topping. A nice addition, but not absolutley necessary. TRY THESE.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
Simply wonderful!! Marinated all day 3 chops. Would recommend the full marinade recipe for only 3 chops or double the marinade for 6. These were the best pork chops I've ever made. They were moist, tender and tangy. Will make again and again.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH! You must try this recipe. I did not have any problems at all with this. I used a Fudge brownie mix from Duncan Hines, followed the cheesecake recipe exactly, except added 1 tsp lemon juice for some tang (oh yes, and low fat cr. cheese) and made my own fudge frosting with 2/3 C unsweetened cocoa pwdr, 3 C pwdr sugar 1 tsp vanilla and enough milk (anout 1/3 C) to make it easy to spread. Got ABSOLUTE rave reviews. I would not double the cheesecake, it is roughly the same amt as the brownie. Oh yes, and I would recommend less cooking time, mine only took about 30 minutes. You'll love this one!

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
FIVE STARS is not enough!! This tasted so great...tasted kind of like a cinnamon roll. Course, I sprinkled on some cinnamon after dipping bread... I used 4 eggs, 1 c milk and 1 cup half and half with the vanilla and had just enough to soak about 1 lb of bread quite well. I made it at about 10:00 AM, and started cooking about 5:30 the same night...it was great!!! I served with some home fries (pan fried round potatoes) and milk for the kiddos. EVERYONE LOVED IT!!! Can't say enough good about this recipe!! Easy and tasty! Thanks

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
Another UPDATE--last night I made these in an 8 by 8 pan. I halved the recipe that I had increased by 25% already. If you make in an 8 by 8 pan, I recommend these measurements: 1 1/4 cups flour, 3/4 cup powedered sugar, 1/2 cups plus 2 TBSP melted butter. For filling I used 2 and about 1/2 eggs (if you can separate and egg into halves, otherwise 2 will be ok too), 1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 plus 1/8 tsp baking powder, 1/2 plus 1/2 TBSP flour, 1/3 cup plus 1 TBSP and 1/2 tsp lemon juice PLUS the zest of 1 lemon. I know this sounds like a lot, but they really do work well. For the crust, bake at 315, but only until the crust is still soft. It should still look slightly raw in the middle. Bake the crust plus filling for about 40 mins in the 315 oven. Seriously, these are SO AMAZING, I could eat the whole pan. Baking them this way keeps the crust soft and not brick hard. Good luck! UPDATE--shortbread crust is only hard if refrigerated. I do not recommend storing these in the fridge. Keep them on the counter and they will be fine. Love the flavor, and as suggested by someone else, I increased whole recipe by 25%. HOWEVER, the crust never browns, and so I kept waiting for it to do so, and as a result the shortbread crust was like a ROCK. As a warning, do NOT cook the crust more than 15 mins in a 315 degree oven. Do NOT wait for it to brown. In fact, if I did it again, I might cook the crust 10 mins only.

Cream Cheese Bars II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Made these and my husband told me that I had been holding out on him for this great breakfast/dessert item. I use 1 1/2 blocks of cream cheese tho to make a slightly thicker middle. Use the full 1/2 cup of butter.
