Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
this as fantastic! I reduced the sugar, like other reviewers, and had to boil a little longer than usual to get it to the jell point. it still turned out a little softer than store-bought or pectin jams, but I prefer it soft. it spreads much better on toast/sandwiches when soft. I pureed my mixture athe end s there were no chunks, then strained out the seeds. my 2 oldest kids looooved this jam, and my 5-year-old told me I'm not allowed to but jam anymore because this is the best, and I agree! I'm using this same recipe tomorrow but using peaches in place of strawberries- thanks for such a perfect and versatile recipe! can't wait to try with other berries/ston fruits!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
PERFECT ICING! I started out using only 1 tsp milk because I live in humid Texas, and ended up adding the other tsp to make a stiff icing. I used it to pipe my edges, then added an additional 1 tsp to the leftover icing to make it "flooding" consistency. My first try ever and my cookies look professional! I tried one batch with lemon juice instead of milk and vanilla instead of almond, and it was KILLER! thank you so much! love this recipe!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
WAYYYY TOO SWEET if you make it as directed. I used Skippy peanut butter, which is pretty unsweet in the commercial peanu butter world. I increased the peanut butter to 1 1/2 cups, added 1/4 tsp salt, and used heavy cream in place of the milk. YUM. I wanted to lick the bowl clean! Thanks for the base recipe!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
this was bland... I put a streusel topping on mine and I'm glad I did because without it, the bread would have been blah. It also had a mushy texture, not what I'm used to in banana bread. I wouldn't make this again unless I was out of white sugar, which is what my regular recipe calls for.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I love love LOVE this cake. It's very refreshing in the warmer months, and is just so delicious. I usually leave the toffee pieces off because I don't like the crunch, but it's still amazing. Anyone complaining that it's too bland should have their taste buds checked! I always use Hershey's caramel syrup instead of thicker ice cream topping because I think it tastes better. YUM!!!!!

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
I have made cream puffs many times but couldn't find my old standby recipe so I used this one. These turned out extremely eggy tasting even though I cut out one egg, and they didn't puff up and become hollow! I got 24 puffs that I had to scrape the centers out of, and after all that work they tasted disgusting! Won't be making this one again.

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
this recipe is pretty thin and sweet as written. the first time I made it, I didn't realize it called for a 3 oz pkg of cream cheese, so I made it with an 8 oz package, and I added 1/2 tsp each vanilla and lime juice. it tastes like cheesecake! and it's thick and delicious with strawberries, watermelon, canteloupe, kiwi, and grapes (all of which I served on my fruit tray). once I realized it called for 3 oz, I made it that way and liked it, but not as much as the version I accidentally made! I also use my version as a cream cheese icing on cinnamon rolls, for homemade soft pretzels, and on cupcakes. yum! thanks for the recipe!

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
ok, I have made this 3 times, twice with peanuts and once with cashews. the first time I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a burned-peanut flavor. yuck. so the second time I added the peanuts before the baking soda, and added a tsp of vanilla. spot on peanut brittle. amazing. so today I made it with cashews, bashed it up into 1" pieces, and coated in chocolate for a baby shower favor. wow. so good. now back to the kitchen I go to make 4 more batches! p.s. don't make this when humidity is above 55% or it won't set.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
this recipe is exactly what I was looking for. I dd substitute half butter and half shortening as lard isnot readily available here. we didn't miss it. they tasted excellent. I made a half batch and got exactly 1 dozen 6" tortillas. I used my hands to stretch them, much as I do pizza dough, then rolled them to even them out and make them thin. I only cooked them for a few seconds per side, then placed them in between layers of damp paper towels. I wrapped the stack in foil and placed in a 250 degree oven to warm them up before dinner. I froze half, and they thaw and reheat WONDERFULLY. thank you! much better than store bought.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
this is amazing! it's my hubby's favorite homemade chinese food. omit the salt as it is completely unnecessary. I use 1/4 tsp ground ginger since fresh isn't readily available. I hae found the easiest way to bread the meat is to put it in a ziploc container with cornstarch, seal, shake vigorously, then shake into a mesh strainer over the trash can and shake off any excess. quick and easy! yum yum!

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
