Cindy's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2015
Used with Dr. Pepper pulled pork sandwiches. Was so simple and tasted just as good or better than any other slaw I've tasted. It really made the sandwich and I felt there was nothing lacking what-so-ever. Very happy with this recipe!

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
This was really good! I had my reservations after others comments and I was going to buy a choc. flavored powdered creamer like others suggested but forgot to adjust my grocery list so when I got home, I used half of the plain I purchased and substituted the other half with store bought cocoa mix I didn't care for at all. It was like a half a cup to a huge batch and I don't think it made that much difference but all in all, I thought it was great! I thought it had plenty of chocolate flavor and even though you do have to add a lot, which you have to with store bought too if you want it rich, it still had a richer, darker tones, more like a gormuet cocoa in a shop but it was MUCH better then what I have picked up for my kids in ANY coffee shop I've been to. I didn't think it was bitter at all and the pudding was good in it. Only downfall? The powdered milk especially was too expensive! Yikes The whole thing was spendy but still probably less then at a shop, cup for cup, and of coarse, better.

Chex® Muddy Buddies®

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
These were real easy and the kids loved them. Mine stuck together pretty bad though and the powdered sugar just absorbed in, more like frosting then dry like in the picture. If I make again, and I'm sure I will, I might try a different kind of Chex other then Wheat. I'm thinking the other kinds aren't as firm a crunch. It was still a hit with adults and children alike.

Moonbeams

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I made these rolled in four different things; nuts, choc. sprinkles and even had raisins in some. The best was the coconut and I must agree with others about not having the need for that much honey. They were very soft, too soft. I actually thought ice cream could help to firm them up. My kids love cookie dough Blizzards so next time I'll add some choc. chips and stick it in some vanilla. No raw eggs either. Bonus! Still, probably half a cup of honey, you can always add more if needed. The wheat germ was actually yummy too. Go figure. After people would comment how good they were I found it fun telling them what was actually in it and seeing their suprise. Especially the men! Tee hee My mother used to give us wheat germ OIL by the spoonful. Yuck! I can remember some rough mornings at the bus stop. Ug

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I have always been too afraid to make this being told it was so difficult, but after my grandmother passed away and several years went by without her special once a year treat, I decided to try to carry on her tradition. I had my pan greased, butter at room temp. and baking soda ready. I used Spanish peanuts instead and added them at 280 degrees like someone suggested. Had hot soapy water ready, stirred pretty much constantly, had difficulty reading my candy therm. cause candy was shallow in pan. (Note: double batch) It took a lot longer then I thought to reach that high and someone was right about keeping a close eye on it after 250 degrees because it does jump. I was sweat'n bullets toward the end, there was no color forever and I wasn't sure what it should look like. Thank you to the person who explained what the soda does and that not to stir too much or pop the bubbles after pouring because that's what gives it it's perfect light, crunch. I reached 300 degrees so not to be chewy, and at honey color, took off the stove, thru in the butter and soda, stirred as fast as I could to incorporate and poured onto cookie sheet. The fork thing did not work and it hardens to quickly to mess around, just lean side to side and shake a little. WOW! I had over 50 people try this and all couldn't believe the crisp, perfect texture. It was so light (even those with dentures could and did enjoy this) the flavor was great and my family said it was the best they'd ever had. Thank you!

Remarkable Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I hate to say it but I was disappointed. I was okay but I really didn't even want to eat them. I gave it 4 stars because others seemed to really like it but wasn't chocolate enough or all that smooth. To me, fudge should be like silk.

German Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I made this and "Remarkable Fudge" for Christmas gifts and this one was MUCH better. Plus it was easier too. I haven't made many different kinds of fudge but I am starting to think that I don't really like recipes with the marshmellow cream in them. This has it but was still yummy, I just think the cream changes the texture and it's not as smooth as it should be. In both recipes, as soon as I added the cream, it looked like it was beginning to sugar, (which it wasn't) but I think next time I want marshmellows, I will look for a recipe that folds in mini-marshmellows instead. This is still a good recipe when making in mass.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Wonderful! I loved it. It compares with my favorite zuccini bread. I put in a half a cup butter and a half cup oil just because I thought it might give it a better top crust. I also substituted one of the cups of white sugar for brown. I'm not sure it made any difference but it was absolutely mouth-watering. We had them Christmas morning. It's a new family favorite. What a keeper!

Dad's Candied Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
This was very good and a fast easy recipe. There were no conplaints but the next time I will alter it's cooking method, perhaps try it on the grill, because it was extremely juicy. The fish let out so much liquid, most of the flavor washed off in the juice. I had to spoon it back over before serving. Maybe it had to do with the freshness of the fish here locally in Oregon, or not, don't know.

Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Warning! Very hot! should be on this recipe. One review said "way to spicy for her family" was absolutely right. It was rich and flavorful, very good, but needs way less pepper flakes. After all the extra time it takes to make these and then to have your children not be able to stand the heat? Disappointing, but I will definitely make again.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Perfect! I tought this recipe was fantatic just the way it was. I made it last night for a group of nine and even some who raised a lip and only took a bite size amount (just to be polite Lol) absolutely loved it. Sure, you could change it, perhaps make it a little healthier, but with men that don't cook and hate spinach asking for the recipe so their wives can make it at home, why would you want to. Excellent! Plus simple and quick.
