Cinnamon Pancakes in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Wow. I mean serously ... wow. I was *not* expecting much from recipe after reading reviews, but I'm SO glad I tried. 4* for taste (they are a tad bit on the heavy side), 5* for ease of prep. Made exactly as directed - only change in preparing was going with the 1 cup milk to 1 1/4 cup mix (but didn't use it all - shy about an 1/8th of a cup). One "batch" gave me 8 nice size pancakes which we devoured. Thanks so much for recipe!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
It was a dark and stormy night ... and this Posole was absolute perfection. I ORCA'd it and scaled way down on the liquid, but YUM! Have never tried hominy before - love at first bite. Thx so much for recipe!

Grilled Flatbread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Ye gods but this was good. We made BLT's using the flatbread with a spicy chipolte sauce. Kind of like a thick chewy tortilla, only not. Would be great by itself with a huge bowl of stew or chili.

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
TYFTI (!) I thought these were lovely. My only problem was using (I halved recipe) "1/2 cup cranberries, chopped" and not "1/2 cup chopped cranberries". In other words, I measured out a half a cup of cranberries and then chopped them (yielding me about 1/4 cup). Not enough of that wonderful cranberry kick I was so looking forward to. Note to self: add a bit of orange extract and baking powder, oven to 425 and when ready to bake drop to 375 for 18". Perfectly cooked - nice and light with good texture.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
This was my first time trying acorn squash and while it's something I'll have to get used to (texture thing), the taste was phenomenal (I know I spelled that wrong, but am rushing). Thx so much for recipe!

Home Made Farmer's Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This was great! I had some milk that was going to spoil anyway, so I thought what the heck and gave it a whirl. I only had 1 1/2 cups of 1% and 2 1/2 cups of 2%, but it worked out wonderfully! 4 cups of milk + 20g of vinegar and a squirt of lemon. My own homemade *lowfat* cheese!

Killer topping. I used on Heather's Spinach and Feta Pita Bake and it was simply wonderful!

Mexican Pizzas

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
OK - after having this recipe in my box for YEARS, I finally tried it using a Taco Bell clone for the beef and another Taco Bell clone for the sauce. This stuff absolutely ROCKED! Better than the Mexican Pizza @ TB.

Perfect Cooked Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
I never in a million years would have thought this would turn out - especially as I only had long grain rice available - but it was fantastic! Slightly sticky (which I love), but with plump individual pieces of rice - not an ooey-gooey mess. Very nice.

Best Beef Dip Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
This. Was. The. Best. Beef. Dip. Sandwich. I. Have. Ever. Had. Period. We mixed up a bit of horseradish/mayo and served on toasted buns with provoline cheese. The. Best. Seriously. My only change was to use low sodium soy sauce and I only started off with about 4 cups of water (adding extra periodically until it reached a to die for taste). Note to self: save this recipe as soon as AR fixes the save to box clitch.

Grocery Store Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Fantastic! I was afraid to beat the entire 15 minutes (and with 5 grandkids screaming to decorate cupcakes any excuse to hush them up would do) so I only beat for about 6 minutes. Mine came up beautifully without (as others have mentioned) any overt powdered sugary or greasy shortening taste. She was a little stiff, but I'm sure with the full mixing that glitch would be eliminated. New go-to recipe. Thanks so much!

Carne Guisada II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Killer Killer Killer Stuff! I don't get lower ratings - I thought (change that to *we*) this stuff just rocked. Made exctly as directed with exception of scaling back a bit on tomato paste by about a heaping tablespoon or so and didn't need to use cornstarch to thicken. We served with refried beans, lotsa cheese, a small green salad, and fresh corn tortillas to scoop it up with. Yum! Oh -one more side note: I didn't use crockpot - just seared beef, then pretty much braised on stovetop for 3 or 4 hours.

Dessertlover's Classic Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I was quite pleased with the end result. I will note it took 7 minutes for the sugar to dissolve and then another 10 to 13 minutes for it to reach the right shade. Added cream and then let it simmer for another 10 minutes. Set up lovely.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I didn't care for the taste of the sauce at all in the beginning. Even after reducing and thickening, I was thinking to myself "blech - I hope this turns out". And turn out it did - I couldn't get enough of it! I was only cooking for 2 of us, but I made a full batch of sauce and cooked each chicken thigh in individual ramikens (covered with foil for 35", then without for 10). I let them rest for 10 minutes and when we were ready to eat, they were fall of the bone tender. We ladeled the sauce cooked with the chicken over steamed rice and were in heaven. We'll be trying this grilled, on skewers with pineapple, and - oh, I have 20 different ideas! Thank you so much for recipe - a real keeper! So happy I made a full batch of sauce as we'll be using the rest as a marinade later on in the week.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Penny, thank you so much for this recipe - I thought it was delightful. Such a refreshing change from your usual green salad. My husband is allergic to walnuts, so I subbed smoked almonds. They gave a lovely subtle taste to the salad. I also had threw in a few dried cranberries as others suggested. Will make again.
