Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This pastry cream tastes great. Just like a bakery. I followed this recipe exactly except I used vanilla extract at the end instead of the cooking with the vanilla bean. I did read some earlier comments stating that this recipe was too "eggy" and they used less egg yolks. I almost cut back on the egg yolks but I did end up putting all 6 yolks. I am glad I did. This was perfect. Keep in mind, this recipe is not for vanilla pudding, it is for pastry cream. Keep all the yolks and butter. I stirred constantly and didn't have any lumps so no need to strain it.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

This is a great recipe. I have made this several times now and people love it. I substitute salt pork for the ham hocks but otherwise I follow exactly.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
These were so perfect for Halloween. They were a huge hit at the party. I read the reviews regarding how these cookies were bland and I almost didn't make them. I'm glad I did make them. They tasted excellent and I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I didn't find them bland at all. These are shortbread cookies after all. They aren't suppose to be sugary. Definitely a huge hit!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
This recipe is so easy and excellent. I used a pork shoulder instead of the ribs which turned out very tender. I used Big Al's KC BBQ sauce recipe off this site which was also outstanding. Will make again.

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
This recipe is great! I added some italian seasoning, pepper, and garlic. I also prepared the loaf pan with a layer of brown sugar and then some ketchup. Then I put the meatloaf mixture on top of that. Makes it really tasty after it's cooked.

I've made this several times exactly as written and it is awesome! Don't need to change a thing. I usually serve with nacho chips and sometimes the bagettes.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
This pie was easy to make and it tasted great. I halved the recipe to make one pie and used an Oreo cookie crust and topped with crushed peanut butter cups and real whipped cream. I also left mine in the fridge and didn't freeze it. It was really like a mousse this way and did not hold the form to well but still tasted great. Next time I will freeze it.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This is great tasting chocolate frosting! I used half and half instead of evaporated milk. Other than that change, I followed the recipe exactly. There was just enough frosting to frost the top and sides of a 2-layer cake. It wouldn't have been enough to frost the inside but I made a Boston Cream pie so I had pastry cream for the middle which worked out well.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as written and beat the batter for 10+ minutes. I didn't care for this recipe at all. The cornbread was very dense after cooked and did not have enough corn flavor.
