World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2004
Ok - for those of you that had trouble with this recipe - try these things: 1) Like many others did, I mixed the flour, peanut butter, and m.creme ahead of time (with a mixer). 2) I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk. 3) I used Swansdown Cake flour instead of regular flour. 4)I used an even cup of marshmallow creme (8 oz). I found out the temperature to cook fudge to is 238 degrees F. - so I did that, using my candy thermometer and didn't go by time. The moment it reached that temp - took more than 5 minutes on medium/medium high heat - I took it off the burner and mixed the rest of the pre-mixed ingredients in. After a LOT of elbow grease with a REALLY sturdy whisk (a square pot whisk) - when everything was blended - I let the mixture cool to about 160 degrees F and whisked with vigor again - before spreading in a glass pan that had been lightly sprayed with butter-flavored Pam. Once in the pan - I used one of those sharp gadgets that you use to hold a tomato with while slicing it (mine's Pampered Chef) - and made a nice grid pattern before it started to harden. Came out perfectly!!!!!!

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
This is a nice hearty bread! I used all whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and omitted the nuts. I baked in a square cake pan and it was done in 30 minutes! Thanks - will be great with coffee for breakfast tomorrow!!!

Great British Fry Up

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
Just like I remember after living in Yorkshire for 10 years!! However, I have never been able to find a good substitute for Lincolnshire sausage (my favorite!!!) on this side of the pond!!!! Fried bread is a must and I'm fortunate enough to be able to get Heinz baked beans and HP Sauce here!!

Beer Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Another reviewer was right - this IS what pork is supposed to taste like!! I didn't have bouillon cubes - so I used gray sea salt, pepper, a bay leaf, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning. I used a bottle of extra pale ale AND a bottle of Miller Draft. Once it was done - I removed the meat, onions, and bay leaf and poured the remaining liquid in a pot. I added more Cajun seasoning, a little water, milk, and Wondra and made a thick gravy. Topped it all off with crumbled cooked bacon - and yummy!! I will make this again and again!!!!!!! Thanks a bunch!!

Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Fantastic!! Best baked chicken we've had! I used evaporated milk in place of regular milk and I spiced up the cornmeal a bit - added more salt, garlic salt, and cajun seasoning. I also sprinkled a tiny bit of salt and pepper on the raw chicken before putting it in the milk and coating. I didn't drizzle butter on top before cooking - I just put little cold butter dots on top before cooking. Will use again!!!

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
Great! Nice recipe - I doubled the recipe and used half cake flour and half whole wheat flour. I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk, as well. I also added vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. I baked in a 9x13 pan for about 45 minutes and it came out perfect!! With the cake shape - I guess I could even frost it with a cream cheese frosting and serve as I would a cake! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

Joey's Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
Perfect!! I made my own crust and used blueberry yogurt. I also used a can of blueberries to make my own topping (there is usually a recipe for pie filling on the back of the label!) - avoid the artifical colors, etc.. that are usually in canned pie filling! This baked perfectly!! Tastes perfect too!! This is the ONLY cheesecake recipe to use! I will try it with more sugar and 1/2 cup pumpkin puree for Thanksgiving to experiment! *** 9/18/2007 - - Great 2nd time!! This time I used strawberry yogurt and strawberry extract!!

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Great!!!! - - - I used 1 pound ground bison and 1 pound ground veal. I only used 2 tablespoons cheese and increased the eggs to 3. I fried in a combo of oil and butter. Then when I was done with the meatballs - I added salt and spices to the leftover oil (and bits!) and fried some onions in it. Took those out, strained them - then put the meatballs, onions, and my homemade sauce in the slow cooker for awhile. Yummmmmm!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Since we already have an apple pie for today - I just didn't want to make a crust for a pumpkin pie...but know that pumpkin has to be on the dessert table!!! So - I made this recipe - ready in just over 3 hours in my slow cooker - and it is GREAT!!! The slightly thicker texture is great!! I might even add a touch more biscuit mix next time!!! Warning: - you'll want to forget the turkey dinner and just take the entire bowl for yourself!!! Thanks for making my day a little easier!!! Also - I wonder if this would make a good filling for some sort of spice cake roll??

No Crust Coconut Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Very good flavor - I added 1/4 cup of baking mix after reading some of the reviews that it came out runny. This did help - although it still had a custard consistency in the middle. I also added 1 tsp. of coconut extract. Didn't care about the consistency - this was very delicious!!! Will serve warm with pineapple or pina coloda ice cream!

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
I took a lot of shortcuts - based on what I had. Used chicken broth instead of water. I also used garlic powder and onion flakes. Left out the carrots and did add the milk at the end - nice touch. I used the ham bone left over from Easter dinner - as well as two small rolls of diced garlic summer sausage. Came out great!

Hawaiian Ham Skillet

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Great recipe! I used 3 8-oz cans of crushed pineapple and upped the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. I also added a dash of teryaki sauce. With the little tweaks - came out perfect! Thanks for the idea!!

Seasoned Short Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This was a very good recipe - easy to do. I gave it 5 stars for this reason. However, it taught me one thing personally - I don't like beef short ribs. They are a little gamey tasting and very fatty. Maybe I'll try this recipe with pork country ribs next time.

French Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
Great! I scaled down to 6 servings and used as a dressing for a wonderful grape tomato and basil salad. The only changes/substitions I made were: olive oil, hot paprika, and red wine vinegar. Will use again!

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
FABULOUS! I will use this for ALL my cornbread needs! This time - I used 1/3 cup sugar instead of the salt. I also doubled the recipe and used a glass 9x15 pan. I also used white cornmeal. But - the possibilities are endless - next time maybe some crumbled bacon - the next - maybe tiny snippets of dried apple? This was SOOOO quick and easy!! Tonight - the butter, honey, and huckleberry jam will be on the table!!!!!

Peanut Butter Oat Rounds

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Pretty good - not a very sweet cookie - which I think is a good thing. They are really good with hot tea. I used Smucker's Natural peanut butter. I will fix again.
