Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
These were very good. I made them to bring to a party. It agree with other reviewers, a pastry tip would have made it easier to fill. I used a plastic bag with an end cut off. I topped them off with milk chocolate. I put that in a small plastic bag too and drizzled it over the top. They look like it took me a long time to make, but it was a quick and easy dessert. YUM!

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This bread was really good. It rose a little too much for my bread machine. It hit the top. I deflated it and put some Pam oil spay on my hands so it wouldn't stick (I read the suggestion on another site, it worked and I didn't have to add more flour). I did substitute 2 Tbs canola oil for shortning and white sugar instead of brown sugar(I didn't have shortning or brown sugar). I didn't put the raisins in the dough, I rolled out the dough, put on the sugar/butter mixture and sprinkled on the raisins. I than rolled up the bread. I was out of butter and eggs, so I brushed the top with water and sprinkled on some cinnamon and sugar. I might us an egg wash next time. I froze one loaf and baked the other. Oh, mine only needed 1/2 hour to rise. I then set the oven to the temp and left the bread in for 30 minutes. It was perfect. This bread was great!!! I would definately make it again.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
These are very good. It is very close to the recipe Bobby Flay used on the Throwdown show. I threw the ingredients in my bread machine on the dough setting. I put it on a lightly floured surface and cut into 6 pieces (I only made a half recipe). It was kind of hard to roll out. They were very thick. I might try one of the suggestions and roll, then let it rest and go back to it. I boiled 4 cups of water and added 4 tsp baking soda. I dropped in for a few seconds and then put on a greased cookie sheet. I let it rise for 20 minutes in a warm oven. I brushed it with an egg wash and put cinnamon and sugar on some and salt on others. Then baked for 12-15 minutes in a 425 degree oven. They were very thick (my fault for not rolling it out more) but tasted very good. Will definately make again, but next time with all purpose flour.

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This was very good! Would definately make this again. I used a little less than a cup of soy sauce (just didn't fill the cup). I added some worchesteshire sauce and garlic powder (probably close to a TBS - didn't measure). I also added extra onion powder and ginger (probably about a TBS of each too). I couldn't find chile paste. I used red pepper flakes and some crushed cayenne pepper (about a tsp at first). After marinading, I cooked on my stovetop grill and boiled half the sauce to use later (10 min to kill anything from touching raw chicken). I added some extra red pepper flakes to the sauce (we used it, the kids don't like spicy). Served with rice, broccoli and fries.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I can't believe this worked. I have made this twice. My son loves it. It tastes like air popped popcorn. The second time I cut the kernels to 1/3 cup. 1/2 cup had too many wasted kernels. I might even cut it to 1/4 cup next time. It filled a brown lunch bag. We added some salt before serving. UPDATE: I made kettle corn. I put 1/4 cup kernels, 1/2 tsp oil, 1 Tbs sugar. Popped in brown bag until popping slowed. There were hardly any kernels unpopped. Added some sea salt to taste while hot. YUM! Tastes just like the Kettle Corn you get at the fairs!(Definately think 1/4 cup kernels is perfect for my microwave and paper bags.

Roasted Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This was great. I usually cook corn this way on the grill. I cooked the corn on 425 degrees for 20 minutes. I didn't make the sauce, just put some marg. and wrapped in foil. Great corn!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
These were very good. I made a few CCC with the rest of the cookie dough. Everyone loved the cupcakes. It was a surprise when they bit in and found a treat inside.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
These are very good. Everyone loved them. I used margarine instead of butter b/c that is all I had. Definately won't look any further for a Snickerdoodle recipe.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Definately the best cornbraed I have made. I cooked it for 25 minutes. It was perfectly golden brown. Not dry like some said. I did soak my cornmeal in milk for about 15 minutes before mixing in the rest of the ingredients. I followed the ingredients exactly, except I ran out of flour, so I substituted a small amout with cornmeal (probably about 1/8 cup). This was good without butter. Yum!

Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
This was very good and easy. I didn't add the can of tomato sauce or green peppers (my family doesn't like them). I used diced tomatoes (w/garlic and onions b/c that is what I had in the cabinet). I also took someone else's suggestion and added some white wine that I had in the fridge, about 1/4 cup. My whole family loved it and it was low points for weight watchers. Thanks!

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I doubled everything except the sugar. Might cut it to 3/4 cups next time. I did use 1 1/2 Tbs minced garlic. I couldn't find chile sauce and didn't want to make the mistake that others made and use chili sauce. I searched everywhere. When I couldn't find it, I bought a can of diced tomatoes with chiles. I used the whole can. I used my Braun hand mixer to puree the sauce, since it had pieces of tomatoes. Next time I might cut out the ketchup, since I used extra tomoatoes. It smelled very sweet when cooking, but wasn't sweet at all. I cooked it for 8 hours on low in the crockpot. The meat was falling off the bone. The only problem (at no fault of the recipe) was the sauce was very fatty at the end. We used a jar of Sticky Finger bbq sauce heated to dip the rib meat in. I don't think I will use spare ribs next time. I might try a different cut of meat. Overall an excellent recipe!

Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Excellent. Definately a keeper. I followed the directions exactly as stated. I did add a tsp of cinnamon to the crumb topping. The only change I might make is make some extra crumb topping without nuts too and add that on top. My glaze was just powdered sugar and water, no butter. Everyone raved about it at work. When I went for seconds, the whole tray was already gone! Thanks for a great recipe.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
This was very good. I did modify it a bit. I usually make mince and taties (meat and potatoes b/c my mother inlaw is from Scotland). I decided to try this recipe b/c it is basically the same just put together and baked. I only used 2 med./large potatoes (cut up), 1 tbs marg. and salt and pepper to taste (skipped the chopped onion and cheese). I started the potatoes at the beginning and preheated the oven. The potatoes were ready to mash by time the meat was cooked and the oven was preheated. I skipped the carrot mash. For the meat, I used one medium onion, about an 1/8 cup minced garlic (from the jar), ground beef, flour, ketcup, low sodium beef broth, 1/4 cup worchester sauce, a little onion powder, salt and pepper. I added about a cup of frozen mixed corn and peas at the end before putting in a small round casserole dish. I skipped the cook flour for 1 minute. Just mixed in all the ingredients. I also skipped cheese in the whole dish. I basically followed directions 1, 3, 4, and 5. Very good. Thanks for the recipe (even though I modified it a little)!

Chocolate Peppermint Candies

These are delicious. It is the same as the Peppermint Patties recipe on this site. (That is the one I originally used. They taste just like the real peppermint patties. I used dark chocolate. Yum!

After-Christmas Turkey Potpie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was really good pot pie! I used 3 cups of turkey (we still have leftovers), some leftover green beans and mushrooms, 1 med. potato (diced small, boil for 8-10 minutes and cooked with the veggies), 1/2 cup frozen peas and corn. I sprinkled a little garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper on the veggies. You definately need the golden mushroom soup, don't substitue with anything else. That is what made this dish. For the crust, I used a Pilsbury roll out crust. Brush bottom crust with egg before filling, brush rest on top instead of milk before baking. This was perfect for all the Thanksgiving leftovers. We had stuffing and cranberry sauce as our sides. I will try it with chicken during the year. Definately a keeper! Thanks for a great recipe. :-)

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I cooked it for 12 hours on low. It fell apart. Didn't need any longer. I bought a pot roast. I used 1/3 cup soy and then filled the 1/3 cup half way with worcheshire sauce. It was very good.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This was really good. I used 2 cups bread flour and 2 cups all purpose flour. I skipped the cornmeal. I made rolls and froze half before the second rise. These are great! Also good if you sprinkle some garlic powder on them before baking.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I used someone else's suggestion and used rice vinegar and low fat mayo. I mixed the full about of dressing, but only added about 1/3 of it. We don't like our slaw drenched. It was very good. Needed some salt and pepper, but that was easy enough to add at the end. I let it sit about 2 hours. Maybe it will be even better tomorrow. Update: Only made 1/2 of the dressing this time. More than enough. Everyone raved about this recipe. I did cut the sugar in half and didn't use poppy seeds. I added some pepper.
