Ham and Beans

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I forgot to read the reviews before I starting making this. Wished I had, because it is too sweet. One tbsp. would be enough. Used only 1/8 tsp. cayenne and it was plenty spicy. The flavor is similar to baked beans with all that brown sugar. I will keep searching for a creamy white bean side dish.

Farmer's Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I've made this salad before, making only half the dressing along with a splash of milk to thin it just a bit. I also halve the bacon, who needs an entire pound of bacon in their salads?!? Doing this will cut the fat and calories, but retain all the flavors that make this salad so yummy. Adding some red onion, peppers, cukes, tomaotes, etc. is also delicious.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
LISTEN UP: for those of you who want more of a bar and less cake-like consistency, double all ingredients EXCEPT for the egg, and use a 9x13 pan. Less egg=less fluffy. I used 1/2 wheat flour and added raisins and they were TERRIFIC bars.

Cathy's Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
very good recipe. used a meat probe thermometer set to 234*, mixed 1/2 tsp cornstarch into the vanilla instead of water. kept stirring to a minimum after boiling to avoid it turning grainy. so good! will never make with marshmallow creme again!!

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I did what others said about reducing the powdered sugar 1/2 cup and adding 1/2 cup of peanut butter in it's place. Rich and creamy and full of peanut flavor! I dipped in melted 60% Giradhelli chips (my favorite), made 100 little balls and put them in festive paper cups for gift giving. Thanks for the recipe!

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Very good! Didn't let the semi-sweet harden completely before adding the white, so they wouldn't seperate later. Didn't add extract or oil, used 7 candy canes, crushed instead of the candies. My son loves this!

Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
OMG!! What can I say? I've been an allrecipes user for years, and rarely do I bother to rate a recipe. But, I just had to this time. I made this for a breakfast dinner with bacon, sausage, and OJ for a change of pace. I made the recipe exactly, except that I only used one stick of butter (1/2 cup instead of 3/4 cup) and swapped out 1/2 cup flour for 1/2 cup wheat flour, and it was plenty rich. I let it rise all afternoon and must say they are soooooooo delicious, crispy, tender inside. DON"T OVERHEAT YOUR MILK! you will kill the yeast. just lukewarm is plenty! It made 10 full size waffles. Will make again and again.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
I decided to use this version after reading reviews on the original recipe, some saying it was too sweet and rich. This recipe was PERFECT! I used diet Mountain Dew because that's what I had in my pantry. Using 8 oz. (instead of 12oz. in the original recipe) made it perfectly gooey with out being too soupy, and no one could detect the soda flavor! Thanks for the customized recipe!!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
So good! I subbed 1/2 tsp onion powder for the rosemary (didn't have any), used 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar for a terrific flavor! Sprinkled 1/2 cup pizza cheese on top after brushing with olive oil. All else remained the same. Used this to make a turkey BLT sandwich- TO DIE FOR!!!

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
For those of you who say your buns were dense and tough, is it possible that your liquid was too hot and you accidentally killed the yeast? If you are using a bread machine, just warm your liquids in the microwave SLIGHTLY, then add your yeast after the flour. Just a helpful hint.

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
These are fantastik! I, too, had no potato flakes and substituted oatmeal. These have a great bread flavor and texture, SOOOOO much better than those 'puffs of air' hamburger buns. Made exactly as directed, except for the oatmeal sub. Will definately make these again for chicken salad sandwiches and burgers! Thanks for the recipe!

Texas-Style Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
I agree with the others, replace the ground beef with sausage. Also, trade 2 of the cans of pork and beans with great northen or pinto beans (really any kind you like). They're colorful and not so soupy this way.

Ranger Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
This recipe really should be rewritten to reduce flour to 2 cups, which is all the flour it can take. Oatmeal could be reduced a bit too. I added 1 cup of Craisins and used 1/2 shortening, 1/2 real butter and they were delicious! My oven is very accurate, and I baked them @ 350* for 12 minutes for perfectly baked, chewy cookies.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Delicious! I made it easy on myself and cut the chicken into strips instead of cubes for chicken sticks. I also omitted the salt and it was plenty salty for our tastes. Even yummy cold the next day, Thanks!

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Using the blender makes this sauce very smooth and creamy, don't skip this step! I, too, added a handful of semi sweet choc. chips to the mixture, but could've added them while it was blending instead. I stirred in a 1/4 tsp of instant coffee granules along with more cocoa for a decadent, rich, deep chocolate experience. try it!

Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Delicious recipe! Make sure to use a pizza stone that is preheated in the lower rack of a hot oven. It helps to use a pizza paddle dusted iwth cornmeal to slide it on and off the stone. This is key to a crispy crust like that in a pizza parlor. I, too, sprinkle oregano and garlic powder before putting in bread machine. Also, 1/2 tsp more yeast. Try it, you will LOVE it!

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
I've canned 3 batches of this already, but added 1/3 cup bourbon whiskey to it. Also doubled the garlic,onion,pepper, and celery seed. Made the first batch exactly as written and it's still 5 stars. Thanks!
