Irish Potato Candy

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I grew up in Philly and looked forward to eating these every year! This receipe is the closest I've found to the original Oh Ryan's Irish potatoes. Absolutely delicious! And it's supposed to be sweet, however...those that say it's too sweet and those who get less than 60 "potatoes" out of this recipe are making them too big. They should be the size of extra-large marbles. This way, the taste of the sweet filling and the cinnamon coating is balanced and tastes perfectly blended when you eat it. Also...the ingredient list isn't very clear about the amt of cream cheese. You should use 4 oz. of cream cheese, which is half of a packet. And yes, the full 4 cups of POWDERED sugar is needed so it's not too sticky. I greased my hands w/ a tiny bit of butter about 3 times total while rolling balls. If you roll them using your palms instead of your fingers, it won't stick as much. I got about 67 potatoes, but I made them smaller than usual. Thank you for posting this delicious reminisance of my childhood!

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Love this meatloaf! My husband asks for it all the time, too. The only change I made was that I use 2 slices of whole grain bread instead of 3. Also, I cook up bacon while the loaf is cooking, then add it to the top during the last 10 min. I also make extra sauce since the hubby loves it so much. Thanks for this great addition to my recipe book!

Waistline-Friendly Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
I absolutely love this recipe! I make it for my husband and I all the time, and he's a picky eater. He can't get enough. The only thing I do differently is add hot NM green chile instead of canned green chiles, but I've made it both ways and it was fantastic.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
These were almost the best pretels I've ever had, with the exception of Philly pretzels. They had a wonderful taste. My only problem was that I couldn't seem to get the dough to stretch enough to make long rolls, so the finished product came out really fat! Oh, well! They were still awesome and I'll use this recipe again next Oktoberfest.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
This was excellent! Very tastey and the perfect amount of ingredients. The only change I'll make next time will be to put the brown sugar and ketchup on the top of the meatloaf. After scooping the meatloaf out, the mixture didn't seem to stick or absorb into it. I added bacon slices to the top also, which gave it a sweet taste.
