Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Any Oles out there? I top the "One Bowl Brownies" with this frosting and it is as close as I can get to the "Blondies" from the caf! Good combo.

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
Terrific! Have tried other recipes for this cookie and have been disappointed with crumbly cookies. This first go-round yielded tasty cookies with a delicate, but slightly chewy crumb. My preference is for using chocolate stars (Brachs brand), rather than kisses for the lower profile benefit of storing and packaging. Will make these again. Thanks.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Great chili! I doubled the recipe. Doubling this recipe made two large crock pots of chili. I cooked it yesterday, cooled overnight and re-heated today on low in the crock for dinner. Friends raved. I have made it to the letter in the past and loved it. This time, I substituted (for a double batch) 6 lbs. cubed sirloin instead of the ground chuck for tender, meaty servings and 3 lbs. ground turkey with Italian seasoning instead of the bulk Italian sausage (again, for a doubled volume). I added 3-3 ounce jars of crumbled bacon to the turkey as it browned because I like the smokey flavor of the bacon. Oh, and because of my Scandinavian family, I used only half of the chili powder (1/4 c. for a double batch). Still spicy enough, but not over the top for these native Minnesota taste buds. All other ingredients were included to the letter. Served with sour cream and shredded cheddar atop and fresh sourdough bread, this made a wonderful, hearty meal. Quite a time-intensive process, but well worth it!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Good, not great. I used a shoulder cut, rubbed with garlic powder, salt and pepper for a moist pull in the crock pot. I used A&W Rootbeer nearly to cover the roast, but supplemented with vinegar. Cooked overnight before pulled, drained and tossed with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce in the morning. Guests raved, but the flavor was a bit too sweet for me. I'll experiement with other marinades in the future.
