Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
Ye gods, wonderful! I combined two recipes - Mini Cheesecakes 1 and Mini Cheesecakes III using the graham crust recipe from III and the cream cheese recipe from I. My only change was to a) cut recipe down by 3/4th (just hubby & I) and b) to add a dollop of sour cream to mix. Baking time was perfect and I had no problems whatsoever with sticking. Oh - and my cream cheese was pretty sweet so I cut sugar down by about half. Thank you so much for the recipe/s :)

Apple Hand Pies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
I know people will hate me for this, so my apologies in advance, but I wanted to make cherry turnovers (without frying) and had no idea how to do it. I used a prepackaged crust I had to get rid of and canned cherries (blech, I know), but for the record baking method was spot on. Cut dough into quarters, rolled out, and finished as directed for above pies. Husband loved. Can't wait to try it with fresh apples.

they just didn't wow us. A tad too crumbly.

Muffin Tin Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
I'm giving this a 5* rating, primarily because a) the cheese sauce is simply wonderful and b) any problems I had were probably of my own making. I used mandolin to slice potatoes 1/8" thick, then layered half into jumbo sized muffin tins (spreading 1/2 of sauce in middle as others suggested). Because I had increased the size of the tins, I decided to go ahead and bake covered for 20", then uncovered for adt'l 20 minutes. My potatoes came out more steamed and ween't crunchy on the edges at all ... so I wouldn't suggest covering them next time. We both agreed there wasn't enough sauce to suit our tastes - again, probably because I had increased size of tins. I think next time I'll try dividing into 3 ramikins with more sauce *or* (now here's a brilliant idea) make 6 regular size cupcake tins with the same amount of sauce. I didn't find any lack of flavor whatsoever and was quite pleased with the taste ... just need to work on the consistency part. Thanks so much for recipe!

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
Delicious! Half I made into Strawberry Santas, the other half I simply stuffed. The kiddos loved them, the men devoured them, the women raved. I didn't fine them time consuming to make at all and will definitely prepare again. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Chinese Restaurant Style Hot Mustard

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2014
Wonderful! It was just hubby and I so I just spooned about a tablespoon of ground mustard into bowl and then whisked in water until it reached the right consistency. Husband went absolutely nuts over this stuff. Thank you SO much for recipe!

Jennah's Famous Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Three (3) times I looked at this recipe ... Three times! Thinking to myself "Bisquick? Bisquick? Nooooooo way". And three times I came back, finally deciding oh what the heck - I'll give it a try. This was the EASIEST QUICKEST TASTIEST blossom recipe I've ever tried. No fuss - no frills - melt in your mouth delicious. I'm SO glad I came to my senses. Batter was a bit loose when I first made it - ended up throwing in maybe another quarter cup of baking mix (used the homemade stuff from AR recipe here), then let it sit in fridge for oh - maybe ten minutes. Eight minutes of baking was spot on (although I did leave them sit on the cookie sheet after pressing in the chocolate kiss while I prepared the next pan). So far I've already gotten 30 cookies ... will probably get another 10 out of them. Thank you SO much for recipe!

Banana Banana Bread

Rocky Road Candies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Awesome and super easy. I halved recipe using an 8x8" pan. Measured out chocolate using a mix of bitter & semi. Once it started to melt, I simply stirred in the sc milk until it hit a consistency I liked. Then eyeballed the peanuts and marshmallows. I *almost* added raisins as someone else suggested, but was afraid it would overwhelm. In retrospect, I think a 50/50 mix of raisins and nuts would be great. Will definitely make again. Thanks so much for recipe!

Grandma's Crispy Pork Wontons

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
So far, so good! Made a ton of wontons - some for deepfrying, some for baking, some for soup. They're all flash freezing right now, but I baked a couple to see what they tasted like and I was quite pleased. Note to self: brush outside of wrapper with eggwash before baking and try at 350 instead of 375 (mine began to burn).

King Arthur Sourdough English Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
OMG these were the BEST muffins I've ever had ... seriously good eats. This half recipe still came out with 10 huge muffins. The citric acid really helps boost the sourdough flavor and ye gods, talk about rise! Mine were HUGE. Absolutely wonderful!

Creamy Oriental Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
Oh dear ... so sorry, but we just didn't care for this at all. Made as directed, then tried to salvage by adding celery, bell pepper, tomato paste, sour cream, lemon juice - - - boy you name it, we tried it. Tasted like uber-sweet mayo. Again, sorry - just not to our taste.

One Bowl Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Someone posted this on Facebook. I was bored and whipped up half a batch using a single 9" round cake pan. There were SO many apples and so little batter I was sure it wouldn't work ... but Oh MY! Delicious! I did add a pinch of salt, a little nutmeg, and a sprinkle of cloves. Perfect warm from the oven with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Will definitely make again as it truly was a one bowl cake.

Taco Bell® Seasoning Copycat

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2014
This was okay. Only change was to use garlic granules instead of garlic salt. I don't know if it was the mix or if it was because I had to use store-bought meat for a change (we have our own) ... or maybe my spices are getting old ... but we really didn't taste much of anything. Ended up throwing some diced jalapeno peppers in to give is some kick. Not bad, just not knock your socks off. Don't really think it tastes like Taco Bell at all. Thanks so much for recipe, tho.

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
These were super easy and fun to make. I'm not a hotdog fan, (so I'll adjust rating if hubby goes nuts) so I wasn't completely blown away by taste ... but presentation wise, they're adorable. I made a half recipe and had enough dough to do 10 hotdogs and 6 medium sized pretzels. Made in KA with no problems - lovely dough to work with. *DO* use parchment paper - I was leary after reading others had problems and made half on paper, half on well oiled sheet (baking at 425) and after drying them off a bit after removing from bath. Ones with paper were fine .... ones without stuck terribly. Thanks so much for recipe.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
So sorry, but I had a horrid time with this ... #1) It's insanely sweet. #2) and perhaps I shouldn't give it a 2 rating because I did do as others suggested and baked in cake pans - maybe that was the problem, but: I let cake cool in pan 20", then turned the first one out - it was still warm and gooey and completely fell apart - that's when I saw the submitters note about making it a day ahead of time, but by then it was too late and I had to getterdone. I popped the other 2 into the freezer to chill - waited another 20 minutes, and then turned them out. Although perfectly cool to the touch, they immediately began to sink and crack, so presentation was soooo sad (grin). On the plus side, they DO taste exactly like soft chocolate chip cookies. But (as mentioned above) they are just SO sweet - nobody could finish even the smallest sliver...I'm so sorry - lovely concept. Having said all that, I *do* think this would be great to make ahead of time (since batter makes 3) and then decorate and serve *individually* like those cookie-cake bakeries you see in the mall. Final note: someone mentioned not to overcook ... perhaps I was too careful with that as well - with final layer, I went the full 20 minutes then pulled ... that was the best layer of the three.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
Wonderful! I hate fried porkchops, but husband was craving them. Preheated oiled sheet in oven; dredged chops in a mixture of Italian breadcrumbs & processed stuffing mix, then proceeded as directed. Mine were super thick and cooked perfectly 12" one side, 13" next side. Served with remainder of stuffing (which I added cranberries, celery and onion to), homemade applesauce, and sautéed fresh green beans. Mine came out delightfully crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. Even hubby (who was originally upset I refused to panfry) devoured. Thanks so much for recipe!

BLT Cheddar Biscuit Slider Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
I don't even know where to begin. This biscuit is designed as a slider biscuit for BLTs - it's insanely light and fluffy, and yet sturdy enough to hold a multitude of yummy fillings. The cheese and cracked pepper on top send it absolutely over the top. I don't think I'll EVER make another biscuit recipe again. Absolutely without question 100% perfect.
