Mock Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
We are unable to eat peanuts so this snack is a sure winner. It takes care of our craving for peanut brittle. The only change I made was to use Frosted Flakes and decrease the sugar to a half cup. It is absolutely delicious!

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
This recipe was a disaster for me! It definitely was NOT easy. It created quite a mess. I first reviewed this in 2003. Now there are so many reviews to read perhaps I could find my mistake. After seeing the beautiful pictures, I'm going to have to give this another try. It was a rainy day, perhaps that was a problem.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
Excellent! Did not change a thing in the recipe. I did, however, score the sides of the cucumber with a fork before slicing to give it a fancy look. I do not use this as a salad, I serve them as you would pickles. Often times I add other vegetables such as peppers or even green tomatoes. When my vegetable garden is growing, there is always a covered bowl of "Adrienne's Cucumber Salad" in my fridge.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Delicious and so easy! I made it with cashews and used butter to grease the pan. It displayed nicely in tins and made great Christmas gifts.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This soup is superb! I used 2% milk and it still thickened nicely. Couldn't ask for better. No other changes were made but plan to make it again and add a little bacon. This recipe also works with lactaid milk.......For a most delicious clam chowder just replace the ham with a couple cans of clams in their juice and a few more potatoes to thicken. It was the best clam chowder I ever tasted! As I use this recipe so often, I now chop all the celery I purchase and keep it in premeasured zip lock freezer bags. Doing the same for a few onions makes this soup a breeze to put together. Also, if you want it thicker, just mash some of the potatoes. I suggest not to make and freeze the soup as it doesn't taste nearly as good that way.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
I made this recipe prior to the grandchildren arriving to make Christmas cookies. I was worried about it being too sticky to roll. After several hours in the refrigerator, the dough was perfect. The grandchildren had a great time rolling and cutting their cookies. We also put the dough through a cookie press making wreaths and adding cherries to the centers. They were my favorite. Everyone raved about the cookies. I felt they were a little too buttery but the family thinks I'm wrong. It's all a matter of taste!

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I used this same recipe to make gingerbread garland families. After each piece was made, I cut a paper clip in half and inserted the end into each hand. After drying and decorating, the hands then got tied together with raffia. I used "puff paint" to decorate and each "person" had their name printed down the front. I found that laying them out to dry was the only way to go. They dried flat as opposed to bubbling in the oven. This year I added a dog to one of the families. One year I had a garland family with an egg that eventually got replaced with a little girl. There is so much you can do. Each garland has a heart cookie in the middle. You can add a year or a last name. They make wonderful presents for teachers etc. Kids with hard-to-find names are thrilled.

Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Unfortunately, I read the reviews while my pie was baking. I worried the whole time that it would be runny. I did everything according to the recipe, but did leave it cook about 10 minutes longer until it was brown. We cut into it while it was warm, and it was perfect! The worrying was for nothing. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing. This is a keeper! UPDATE: I put all the sliced apples in a zip-lock bag and poured the cinnamon sugar mixture over them; shook gently, then filled the pie shell.

Cherry Blossom Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Although I got this fudge to set correctly by boiling 5 minutes, the cherry flavor overwhelmed the chocolate. Much too sweet.

Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This recipe just did not work for me. The cookies stuck to the cookie sheet which I sprayed with "Pam". The texture did not seem right. I double checked the ingredients. The taste was very bland.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Excellent! Didn't change a thing in the recipe. I did use 2 8" x 8" pans so I could freeze one. Having used fresh chopped spices, the smell of it cooking was sensational. The hardest part was waiting until it got done. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Terrific! I was amazed how plump with coconut these shrimp became. Having read the importance of chilling for 30 minutes, I took the advice of CurtisLee and put them in the freezer for 15 minutes. It sped the process up and they turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing! I served with "slam dunk coconut shrimp dipping sauce".

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This is the best! My daughter made this for Thanksgiving 3 years ago. It became a "must have" every year. She added walnuts which made it fantastic. This year I saw the recipe and couldn't believe how simple it was to make. It compliments many meals and we don't have to wait for Thanksgiving any more. She always told me it was easy. Many thanks for sharing!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This recipe was not only delicious, it was simple to make. I added a bag of baby carrots, fresh parsley, sweet marjoram, and finely chopped celery. (next time I will add potatoes) I cut the pillsbury biscuits in half and floated them on top during the last half hour of cooking. They puffed up and came out beautifully in 30 - 40 minutes. I will definitely make again. 2 packages of biscuits were definitely needed for our family.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This soup is great. I did however, use "Old Bay" to season it and skipped the red wine vinegar. I also added extra potatoes so I could mash some and make it thicker. Also, I drained a can of corn and added it. Thank you Sharon for sharing!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
The key to enjoying this recipe is cooking the fish properly once it is marinated. It needs to be cooked as you would a rare/med rare steak. Overcooking makes the fish dry and tough. The center needs to be pink. We really enjoyed this marinate and will use it again on many dishes. Thank you Carin for sharing. The marinate is excellent.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
Quick to make and easy to do. It's a recipe I will enjoy making with my grandchildren. So many steps that are easy for them to do and I know they will enjoy eating it. I would, however, double the margarine and brown sugar and spread it in the middle as well as on top. (As many suggested and I learned the hard way! lol) Using a pizza wheel to cut the dough is a great idea. (as previously suggested) For safety reasons, I would not use a two-piece pan when working with children as they could get burned by the syrup. (as a reviewer previously wrote) If you do use a two-piece pan, line the bottom with wax paper and it will not leak. (I did it that way as I did not have a bunt pan). It can be sliced with a serated knife and eaten with a fork. Warmed for 15 seconds in the microwave the next day and it is as good as fresh baked. Thank you, LuAnn, for sharing such a great recipe. Update: For Valentine's day my granddaughter, Rachel, made mini bundt cakes with my assistance. Fill the pan almost to the top, as it will "grow" as it cooks. We know, ours grew out of the pan; but, it gave us some laughs!

Barbie Doll Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I learned to make this cake at a Wilton Class 30 years ago. To make the doll fit a bundt pan, cut a slit to the center of a paper plate and make a hole the size of her waist. Put the paper plate around her waist. (Plate facing down so it curves correctly) Place the doll in the cake and adjust the paper plate to fit. Use tape to hold. Icing the plate as you would if it were cake. When it comes time to cut the cake, you lift the doll out and she is wearing a shorter version of the dress. These make great birthday cakes and bridesmaids cakes as well. The 5 stars is for the idea.

White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
White chocolate covered pretzels are a hit every year with our family and friends. A favorite variation of ours is to cover peanut-butter filled pretzels with dark chocolate, then top with assorted sprinkles. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate for you will get white streaks.
