German Anise Christmas Cookies (Springerle)

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
This is very much like my Grandmother's. that being said; She also used Hartshorn salt which is ground antlers(horn) which back in the day was use as a leavening agent. She stated using baking powder as soon as it was avaible and said it did not change the flavor. I have used both and believe that to be true.

Wisconsin Bratwurst

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This is a great recipe. been using this for years except for the butter. I make mine in a slow cooker, then take out the ones for the children then add the beer. I would never give anyone under 15 anything that is slow cooked in beer, not all the alcohol evaperates, People that are senitive to alcohol can have a bad reaction. I always inform they are cooked in beer by placing a sign in front of them. My friend who has this problem warned me years ago that this has caused her problems in the past, she said it is mainly things that are cooked for a long time.

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I always make 2 apple pies,some family like tart and this is it. In answer to others the trick to a good pie is to mix golden or yellow apples with red more tart apples together. The sweetness of one offsets the tartness of the other and less sugar. My family likes cheddar cheese slice melted on top in mirowave just before serving.

Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I had to read the reviews again and felt some were unfair,Yes I did add more rhubarb only because I love the stuff and I did lower the sugar because I love the tart flavor of rhubarb.I use to pull it out of my grandparents garden ,rinse it off and I had sour candy before they came out with sweet tarts, The tops are thick and that is a personal thing,as with the amount of butter and sugar,as for adding other berries to it,it then becomes strawbery rhubarb crunch and not rhubarb crunch. When you change a recipe to your own taste and ideals of what you like should'nt take away from someones recipes. There will always be changes in recipes even though handled down from moms to their children.

Peach Cobbler III

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
easy recipe,my son loved it. although not all the peaches went to the bottom it made the top crust even prettier. The bottom was a little soggy I will just lessen the liquid the next time. With a little cinnamon and vanilla it had a great flavor,the fact it was'nt sickingly sweet is a plus. I rated it a five because I take in the factor that everyone likes different flavors and texures and this cobbler has more plus than not. It is pleasing to look at,is easy,not time consuming and not overly sweet.
