Korean BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
This is off the hook! Made it and put it on some spare ribs, baked them and wow. I'll never buy or make another sauce. Thanks!

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
I had to use 2 cups of starter to get it to pull together, other than that it turned out great. I did omit the onion because true sourdough bread has none. The flavor was excellent. Those people who have said that it did not have a true sourdough flavor should blame their starter not the recipe. If you are working with a young starter, it is not going to have the deep sourdough flavor. My starter is over 25 years old so I found exactly what I was looking for with this recipe. Thanks for sharing, it is a great recipe.

Old Fashioned Hard Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
I never knew I could make hard candy. I have tried several times in the past and had nothing but a stack of pots that needed de-sugaring. I found this recipe and decided to try one more time. It looks and tastes like I have been making candy for years. I used one dram of Cinnamon oil and red food coloring. It looks and tastes just like the old Jolly Rancher cinnamon sticks. Remember those? A bonus is the cinnamon oil makes your house smell awesome, just don't stand over it when you pour it in.... lesson learned.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
These are awesome! I rolled them out between 2 pieces of parchment paper, set them on a cookie sheet and stuck them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. I then sprayed my cutters with cooking spray to cut them. Pealed the excess dough away and baked for 8 minutes. The perfect cookie was born.

Old Fashioned Hard Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I made this for Christmas and it was gone before the rest of the candy. I used 1 dram of cinnamon oil. I am making it again tonight because my husband likes it better than any hard cinnamon candy he can find. Word to the wise... when you out the oil in, step back and make sure you have your window cracked. Broke mine up with a metal spatula, just a slight tap will do it. This is the best of the best.

Marshmallow Fudge Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
The ONLY thing I did not like about the frosting was the fact that I should have sifted the powder sugar and gotten rid of the tiny sugar clumps. My fault, this recipe ROCKS!

Deb's Cloverleaf Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
Wow, is all I can say. These rolls turned out to be the best Ive ever made, and Ive made a few. I used my Rival roaster oven and mixer with the dough hooks. I wound up making 4 batches to hand out to the homeless with hot turkey soup for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Simple, easy and very cheap to make, but most of all tasty! Thanks for sharing this. You rock!!

Sweetheart Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I made these with the classic white cake mix and added a dram bottle of Raspberry to the pink and red. I started out making cupcakes but after cutting one open and tasting it, I wound up using them for raspberry shortcakes. I cut them in two and put berries and homemade whipped cram on them. I tinted the cream red hot red. I heard several times how they were to pretty to eat, yet no one seemed to have a problem eating them. One cake mix made 12. After you get your cupcakes ready to go into the oven, if you will give your pan a few taps on the counter top, it will eliminate any air pockets you might have from inserting the colored batter into the center. This is an awesome recipe, I will be making it again and again. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
I made 6 batches of these for the holidays. They are fool proof. Rolled them in Bits O Brickle that I ran through the food processor for a few pulses. Did the same with Honey Roasted Cashews. I will NEVER pay 2.00 for one truffle again.

Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I made these as a last minute thing for my husband to take to work. They are simple to make if you can make a cupcake, you can make these. I made the glass a little different. I used the basic hard candy recipe, 2cups white sugar, 2/3 cup light corn syrup, 3/4 cup of water. Stir it till it is combined on medium heat, when to starts to slow boil, do not touch it again. When it hits the hard crack stage of 300, I removed it from the heat, added one dram of cinnamon oil, if you use cinnamon oil, be sure to open a window and step back when you add it at the end of the cooking process. Stir it well into the candy and then pour the candy onto slightly sprayed aluminum foil. Let it cool and break. If you don't have a candy thermometer just put a piece of ice into a glass of water. When you drizzle some syrup in, if it hardens right away, your candy is done. Every stove is different, but my candy took about 40 minutes. Do it slowly, and it will never fail you.

Jam Thumbprints

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
These were awesome. I made some with blackberry and I made some with strawberry. I drizzled ganache over the strawberry cookies. Masterpiece. If you are looking for a great thumbprint this is the one you will want to use.

Aunt Jewel's Chicken Dressing Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
I added some celery, carrots and onions because that's the way I like these type of dishes. That being said this came out great. It is one of those things that I crave from time to time so I make it a few times a year. It is quick and easy and delicious. What more could you ask for??

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
I've made these two ways now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and they came out simply awesome. The next time I made these I saved the juice from the cherries and used it along with the juice from the new jar in place of the pineapple juice. Since I had to use a little water to make up the 1 1/3 cup of liquid it calls for I also used 1/2 teaspoon of cherry oil. They came out equally as delicious. This is a great recipe with many possibilities. Thanks for sharing.

Basic Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
I rolled mine in Bits O Brickle which is the toffee part of a Heath Bar. I ran them through the processor for a couple of seconds and rolled away. If I would have known that Truffles were this easy to make I wouldn't have been paying 3.00 for one, and these are A LOT better! Excellent recipe. Very easy to make.
