My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Awesome recipe. I used 1/4 light corn syrup and 1/4 molasses per another reviewers suggestion. Boiling 5 minutes just took it to the edge of burnt, so I will reduce it to 4 minutes next time.

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
I believe the key to getting the caramel to stick to the apple is the consistency of the caramel. It should be thick and goopy. I used a very small saucepan on the stove top so that I could easily control the consistency of my caramel. Don't be afraid to let it get pretty thick. If it's too thick, just turn the heat up. I rolled my apple around in the saucepan and got it really well coated, then I would hold it up above the pan and spin the apple around and up and down to even out the caramel. I spun it around for a long time, allowing the caramel to cool and set before I placed it on the wax paper. Tasted and looked great!

Chile Verde II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This is exactly the restaurant style/flavor Chile Verde that I love! So. Good. Be aware the 4-1/2 quarts chicken broth I believe should read 4-1/2 CUPS! I followed "Motherof4bigeaters" (April 8) and "Debra's" review (July 6) and it turned out perfect. Remember to add salt and pepper to each step as per Motherof4bigeaters suggestion. I can't believe I finally found the ultimate Chile Verde recipe! I am a beginner cook and this turned out great for me. Thank You!

Chocolate Nutty Mini-Football Treats™

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Cute idea! Though didn't care for the cocoa crispies/peanut butter in this recipe. Next time I will try a traditional rice krispie treat recipe and add food color to the marshmallow mixture to achieve the brown color. Making the football shapes is SUPER easy: cup your hands together with the mixture, massage and press - and voila! It will come out in a football shape. I put icing in a ziploc bag and cut a corner to dispense the frosting for the "stitches" on the football.

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
LOVE THIS CAKE! I add 1 tsp. coconut extract to the coconut/condensed milk mixture for more intense coconut flavor. But still, it's not overwhelming. And I use only about half the can of the condensed milk rather than the full 14oz. Husband requests it every birthday and says it tastes better than any coconut cake he's ever had.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Delicious! It really doesn't need any butter. I only added 1-2 tablespoons at the end to just give it a more rich flavor - but could easily go without. The soup was very very dense, so I added more stock. Next time I will also reduce the amount of flour to only 1-2 tablespoons. Added rosemary, chopped parsley and thyme. We all loved it!

Granny's Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
The texture is great - gooey in the middle and crispy on top. But they are too sweet - not chocolaty enough! I would try them again this time using 1.5 times the chocolate. Maybe even 2x the chocolate. You can see from the picture that the brownies are a light caramel color - and they should be a dark chocolaty brown~! I used a glass pan instead of metal. Too bad there is so much confusion with the time and temperature.... I just sort of winged it. I like my brownies really gooey and not cake-like so the undercooked-ness of them was okay for me.

Caramel Corn IV

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
Excellent! Upon some reviews that the corn came out a little burned, I, too, adjusted the temp to 250 rather than 300. The only negative - I think there is too much popcorn to caramel ratio! I made this again and used 1/2 C unpopped popcorn rather than 1 Cup. This allows the use of only one roasting pan to mix the popcorn, and gets more caramel on each kernel.... I have all non-stick cookware and had no problems with clean up.
