Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
I am updating my original review to 5 stars. My hubby had told me the first time I made them they were better than any bakery. I thought he was being sweet. But, I made them today and sent 2 home with a Mexican man who is doing some tile work for us. He actually called my husband when he got home and told him they tasted like what he used to eat in Mexico and both his wife and kids absolutely loved them! That made me feel pretty good since I am just a white girl...lol. I only made one change to the recipe---I added an extra egg yolk. I will be making again and again.

Sour Cream Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
This is a great mac salad recipe---the only one I ever make. Easy. It will seem soupy but when left overnight the macaroni absorbs all the liquid. I use a tad bit less seasoned salt.

Watermelon Sangria

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Thought I would update my original 5-star rating since I made this again this summer. It's still excellent. I used Marq Phillips Hollys Blend wine and Agavero Orange liqueur. Wow, sensational! I used as little pulp as I could. Excellent. I froze it so it got slushy. I was skeptical to use a whole bottle of wine, so I made a half recipe and then went and made the other half.

Best-Ever Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I used ground turkey and it was really good. Will probably cut back on the thyme a little bit next time. I also used monterrey jack cheese.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
I gave this a 5 star rating---it was very good, but I admit I modified it slightly. I added seasoned salt (Lawrys), omitted the celery, cut back on the butter, and I used the cheese on top and then crushed potato chips. It was seriously a good casserole and I will definitely make again. I paired it with some sliced yellow squash, fresh green beans and mushrooms steamed.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I used Grands buttermilk biscuits but split them in 2 and used half per muffin tin. It worked great. I made 12 muffins with the egg mixture as written. I think it will be good next time to add some salsa to the sausage. Very good and will make again.

Strawberry Pie Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Gosh...very easy! I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and it was plenty sweet. I pulverized the strawberries with my cuisinart stick blender, then strained it for seeds. I used all the purée. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
The first time I made this recipe, it was delicious. I mashed the bananas and baked it for an hour. The second time I made it I made a few changes. 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar, 3 bananas, 3/4c whole wheat flour and 3/4c white flour, 2 tsp vanilla. I gotta say it was delish too!

Martha Washington Candies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This recipe made as is, is a joke. It is a frosting recipe. It doesn't set up near firm enough to make actual candy. After refridgerating it for a week, I opted to put it on the stovetop and cook it. I let it boil until it turned a nice caramel color, then I scooped it with a melon baller onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. The flavor reminded me of a vanilla haystack but not as creamy.

Chocolate Caramel Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Very good candy. Next time I will leave out the peanut butter----but it's very good with it too. The nougat is what I love!! I lined my pan with parchment paper and had no trouble getting them out of the pan. A huge hit at work!

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Wow---these were phenomenal! I used 1 T brown sugar and 3T white sugar. I used less flour (by accident) and the dough was relatively sticky. I also used fresh yams. They turned out so tender and fluffy. My guy said they were definitely restaurant quality. They were the hit of the Thanksgiving dinner!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I followed the recipe but honestly, it was not like any Salisbury steak I've eaten before. I won't make it again.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
This is 5th time I've made this fudge--perfect everytime! I put my PB, marshmallow cream and vanilla in my kitchenaid so when the 7 minutes is up, I CAREFULLY pour it over and let it mix until it has a little sheen. Then I pour it into 1 8x12 glass dish and I only pour what will freely come out of the bowl---this gives the pan a beautiful texture that looks creamy. What is left in the bowl, I scrape into a little container--can't waste any of it! Note that the jar of Jif is 18 oz, recipe calls for 16oz but I used it all and it always comes out perfect.

Anisette Toast

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Worked good. We left it in the oven a bit longer after the 2nd baking. It was just a tad too rare for my liking. But---overall very good. This is the way my entire family makes a prime rib.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I made 1 batch yesterday and I used bread flour. I proofed my yeast till it was very bubbly and I ended up with a very nice and tall loaf of bread. Since that turned out well, this morning I am making a full batch with all purpose flour. I put 2 mini loafs of dough in the freezer for future use--figured a mini loaf would be perfect with a spaghetti dinner some night. I also 2 small loaves which are in the oven, and a pan of 10 cinnamon rolls. The dough was the perfect consistency, it reminded me of a bakery yeast dough. Can't wait until it is out of the oven! My plan is to bake the bread and dry it to use in my Thanksgiving dressing.

Vegetable Beef Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Every time I make this recipe I have to give it 5 stars cause it is that good. I use fresh veggies instead of frozen and I use V8 juice. YUM!

Thick Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This was very good and very easy Next time I will stick to the 1/3 cup sugar (I used just shy of a 1/2 cup and it was too sweet for my taste). I used a stick beater to make it smooth, but next time I will sift the cocoa and cornstarch first.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Sifting the sugar and cocoa was definitely a plus and using the evaporated milk. The frosting is so smooth and creamy. Not to mention, it tastes great. If you want to ice a layer cake, you will need a recipe and a half.
