Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
I thought the flavor was decent, but they fell apart when I cut them. Not my favorite recipe.

Czech Dumplings - Yeast Method

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
These were a bit more involved than dumpling recipes that don't use yeast, but the results were fantastic! These rival the dumplings I've had at Czech restaurants in the Chicago area, and they are similar to the frozen dumplings by Chateau.

Peppermint Marshmallows

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I made these for a food day at work, and they were a huge hit. Here are some things I learned while making them: • Don’t double the recipe. I did, and two things happened: o I wound up with hard candy all over my stove top after the sugar boiled over. Nightmare. o Once the mixer starts whipping the liquid, it at least doubles the volume. Toward the end of mixing, the sticky fluff was working its way into the hole where the beater attaches to the mixer. If I’d mixed much longer, I would have had my own Stay Puff Marshmallow Man. • I can’t imagine trying to make these without a stand mixer. You could probably do it with a hand mixer with whisk attachment, but it would not be fun (my mixer went for a good 20 minutes on medium, then high before they were ready). Unless you have a bionic arm, don’t even try to do it by hand. • If I made them again, I would use the recipe as-is, and instead of using an 8x8 pan as suggested, I would use an 11x13 pan. That would result in smaller marshmallows (and they’d probably be easier to cut. • Be very generous with the powdered sugar. I sprinkled the top of the pan before I started cutting, and then I dipped my knife in the sugar after each cut. Little by little, I added them to a bowl and kept tossing/stirring them with powdered sugar so they wouldn’t stick to one another.

Cherry Mash Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
I made these to bring to work for a treat day. I, personally, would give them two stars since I thought the cherry layer was too sweet, and the fake cherry flavor was cloying. But, a number of my coworkers seemed to like them, so I bumped up the stars to three. They aren't bad, by any means - it's just a matter of personal taste.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was fantastic! I bought too many blueberries (four packages) and was able to fit it all in the pie. Because I added more blueberries, I also added a little more sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. I used the refrigerated Pillsbury crust.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
EXCELLENT! I made this for our Super Bowl party to go along side chili, and it got rave reviews. I used whole wheat flour instead of regular, and it turned out wonderfully!

Slow-Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
An easy and tasty alternative to the more labor-intensive homemade lasagna dishes. This is a great option when you don't feel like putting all the work into making homemade sauce, cooking the noodles, etc.

Chicken Taco (Tortilla) Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I felt like it was a little salty, so I'll try to use lower-sodium products in it next time. Overall, it was tasty, extremely easy to make and filling. I will definitely make it again!

Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
This is a great recipe! The second time I made it, I modified to my tastes (I like a lot of spice) by not using the sugar, and bumping up the amount of horseradish and hot sauce to 1 T instead of 1 t. I used Scorned Woman hot sauce which has a heartier flavor than Tabasco sauce. I also added some garlic salt and black pepper to taste. For me, the perfect garnish is a dill pickle spear, a celery stalk, garlic stuffed green olives and a pickled green bean. A jumbo shrimp or two would also taste great as a garnish to this drink.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This cranberry recipe has a fantastic flavor. The use of brown sugar and cinnamon really makes it a standout. I simmered it for about 2-3 hours, and it was perfect!
