Oven Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
These are reallymoist and tender! I used EMRILS ESSENCE to season the ribs and then seared on the grill on high heat for a couple minutes each side. I then used my broiler pan with some water in the bottom and put the ribs on the vented tray and covered with SWEET BABY RAY'S. I then used foil to make a tent so it could steam while it cooked for a couple hours. when done , I put some more BBQ sauce on it and put under the broiler for a few minutes to carmelize the BBQ sauce. Fell off the bone goodness!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I have been making refried beans and after making this recipe my husband said he would rather have this instead! The only thing I did different was double the pieces of bacon because I had no ham on hand (tastes great without it!). I also didn't have the jalapeno so I substituted 3 anaheim peppers and left out the bell pepper. Will definatly make again!

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
These are good, but could use chocolate chips or some kind of flavored chip to to make them even better.Next time I make these I will also try using coffee liqueur in place of vanilla. I also sprayed the pan with cooking spray instead of using parchment paper and had no problem with sticking.

Creamy Mocha Frozen Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This was really good!I did use 2 oreo crusts instead of making my own. I also used 1/4 Cup coffee liquer in place of the coffee. I then put chopped pecans in the bottom of the crust and poured the filling over and added the whipped topping on top instead of into the filling.TRY WHIPPING IN A CHILLED BOWL: 2 Cups heavy whipping cream with 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 Cup pwd. sugar, this is enough for the 2 pies.

Roast Beef and Avocado Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
These were very good!I did double the cream cheese spread for the 6 wraps, and used fresh salsa instead of tomato. I also chopped up the avacado and added it in with the fresh salsa.I have made several wraps from this site and this one is my familys favorite.

Three Animal Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
These are great meatballs! I used ground sausage instead of beef (can't have it), then used 3 eggs,1 C.oats instead of bread, and I also added 3 cloves of chopped garlic.This made huge meatballs that I just browned in a pan and then poured over it: 29 oz. Hunts Tomato Sauce, 1 tsp brown sugar, 3 cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp. Oregano, 1/2 tsp. Thyme, 1/2 tsp. Basil,and 1 Bay leaf(let it simmer in a pan a little bit before pouring over it.)Let it simmer till meatballs are done then add 2 C. shredded Mozz.and continue cooking till cheese is melted.Also makes great meatball sandwiches!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I make this using all whole wheat flour(5 cups + 2-3 cups more) and I add just 1/2 C. honey to the water when I warm it up for the yeast.I get 2 large loaves with this recipe; I also slice it and freeze after it cools, then we take out of the freezer as needed(if you freeze while still warm the slices are harder to seperate).This recipe is also great for dinner rolls!

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
I ground up the coffee beans and melted 1C. of white chocolate chips for the top layer. I have found that cheap chocolate chips have more wax and dont melt as well.The ground coffee is a little gritty so I think I'll try 1/2 C. ground coffee next time.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
If you can find the skewers that have double prongs it makes grilling easier! You dont have to worry about the meat sliding around while your trying to flip. I make 2 batches of marinade; 1 for the veggies & one for the meat and I save the one from the veggies to brush over the meat while grilling.Have used on both chicken and pork and both are good!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
These are good and easy to make! I did end up having to use a little extra hot water to get the dough smooth.I made ahead of time and let the balls set with a damp cloth till I was ready to make them later in the day.If your worried about the frying and rolling at the same time;roll a few out ahead of time(they wont stick to each other if you stack them).

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I made these as directed and dipped in 2 1/2-cups melted chocolate chips with 1 T. of crisco added. They tasted like fudge truffles (definitely good for a chocolate fix!)Next time I'll try dipping in other flavored chips like Peanut butter, White chocolate or raspberry.

Eclairs I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
I make eclairs alot and for those who have a problem with the "shell"part not turning out....The recipe I have used for years (same ingredients and measurements for 12)calls for the ball of dough to cool for 5 mins. then beat in eggs one at a time. After putting on greased baking sheet; bake for 20-25 mins. at 400(golden brown), then cut a 1-inch long slit on side of each eclair. Reduce oven temp to 375 and bake for 10 more mins (this allows the inside to cook a little).Hope this helps. Try filling with BAVARIAN CREME FILLING: 1 1/2 C. chilled whipped cream; 1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened; 2/3 C. brown sugar; 1 t. vanilla; 1/8 t. salt...In a chilled bowl, beat cream untill stiff. Blend remaining ingredients & fold in cream.

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
These have a really good flavor. The only change I made was cutting the salt down to 1 tsp. I thought 2 tsp. was a little much.I also baked them on my broiler pan and didn't have to worry about the grease. Next time I'll try them using ground pork.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
My husband thought I had found the recipe for KK!...They are close, and if you want them to stay fresh, just put any leftovers in the freezer and defrost in the microwave when you want them ( I have a frozen roll setting on mine). I did make a couple of changes to the recipe because I made do with what I had on hand...I used buttermilk instead of milk, and used butter instead of shortening, but they still turned out great!Next time I will decrease the yeast to 4 tsp. instead of 4 1/2 to see if they might be a little less yeasty tasting.

This was good! I was lazy and bought a oreo crust and ended up having leftover filling. Next time I make it I will buy 2 crusts and just double the topping.
