Please Forward

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
These are really good! I like that this recipe uses yeast (and adds more flavor!) than the ones without it. We served them with guacamole & salsa as you suggested, drizzled with honey, and also rolled immediately in cinnamon sugar. They were all delicious. I thought I would let you know that your URL for them doesn't take you to Sopapillas anymore. You'd also get more reviews and try'rs of the recipe if you posted a photo of them (either yours or one of what they look like when cooked.) Thanks for sharing! :)

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
I also have been making this roast for years (almost 20!) When I first saw this recipe, it did *not* sound like it would be good at all - but the cookbook I got it from promised it would be amazing, and it IS! A few words of advice, though - I've tried adding carrots to the crock pot, but I don't care for how it changes the flavor of the gravy, so I cook them separately if I make them. I usually make mashed potatoes, or potatoes quartered and cooked with the roast, though, to show off this gravy! Also, I've used both store brands & the brand name mixes, and the only thing I'd recommend is if you do use the cheaper brands, splurge to get the Hidden Valley Ranch brand dressing - that one really makes a difference if you use a cheaper brand. Lastly, you *can't* substitute already made dressings for any of the mixes - it does NOT come out tasting the same, so don't waste your money trying that. You won't like it, you'll be disappointed in this recipe, and will have wasted your money buying the other packets. (I speak from experience! lol I don't know why it doesn't work, but it doesn't.) You've GOT to try this at least *once*! You'll love it! :)

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I don't rate recipes very often, but these are *excellent*!! I made the base recipe exactly as written, but because it's fall I used Pumpkin Pie Spice instead of the cinnamon, and then added 1 c. of Craisins, 1 c. of flaked coconut, and 1/2 c. white chocolate chips. The batter turned out so super thick that I didn't think it would spread much, so I didn't chill it. I made my balls the size of walnuts and put them on parchment (instead of greasing the sheets), but because of the additions, it made exactly 36 cookies instead of just 24. And in listening to some other reviewers, I didn't flatten them at all and they turned out absolutely perfect! All nice and round, just like they came out of a store bought box! They were so pretty - not too thick, not too thin. They had barely crisp edges, and the insides were chewy and wonderful! I *highly* recommend these, especially for the Holidays! Thanks SO much for this recipe! :) (Even my sister, who's the biggest cookie snoot, kept making happy "mmm... mmm..." noises when she tried one! Now that's sayin' *something*! lol)

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
DO NOT make the pudding mix first, and THEN add the sour cream & whipped topping. If you make the pudding first, it's going to be a wet, gloppy, mess that will over soak your cake while chilling. Next time I might make a homemade angel food cake instead of a purchased one from the Deli. This is almost too pretty to eat. *Almost*. ;)

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This crepe batter is really, really good! I mixed the dry ingredients in my stand mixer with the whisk attachment, then poured in the milk, water, & 1/2 t. of vanilla all at once, mixed it well, and then added the eggs and mixed well again. It blended wonderfully and I only had a few tiny specks that didn't mix that were settled at the bottom of the bowl when I was done pouring & making them. I did take another reviewers advice on adding the vanilla and 1/3 c. of sugar, but it was a tiny bit too sweet after we put our strawberry filling inside and the sweetened whip cream on top. They were so good I decided to make more for the next day and some to freeze, so I made the recipe again, doubling it, and only used the 1/3 c. for both instead of each, and that was perfect for us. These were great! :) (I just wish they were faster to cook! lol)

Precious Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
I took the other reviewers advice and added another egg (4) and baked it in a 13x9" pan. I baked it until a toothpick came out clean, and let it cool. I frosted it with cream cheese frosting sprinkled with coconut on top. It cut into squares okay, but when you cut each bite with your fork it was SO crumbly it just fell apart, and could only get crumbly bits onto your fork unless you smashed them together. The only bites that tasted good were the ones that had the frosting on it. The crumbles without frosting weren't sweet at *all*, and didn't taste very good. (Usually almost all cakes taste good even without frosting, for those that don't want frosting.) I wouldn't make this again, even to try it with just 3 eggs to see if it made any difference in how crumbly it was. (I'm guessing it wouldn't going by what others have said.) :( Sad it wasn't as good as some thought it was.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This bread is so AMAZINGLY good! I won't look any further than this recipe, it's now my Ultimate Fav! The oil isn't "oily" at ALL the way it's written. The few changes I made were to heap the 1 t. cinnamon, I used 2 c. white sugar and 1 c. brown sugar, I added 1 c. chopped pecans (very nice - more "nuttier" of a chew than walnuts would have been), and I added raisins to one of the loaves. (The one without raisins was better, I think - more pumpkin flavor came through. The one with raisins was too sweet, so if I were going to add them again I would decrease the sugar by 1 cup.) I used one dark finish nonstick pan (it was done in 50 mins) and one shiny metal (it was done in 60 mins), both 9x4", filled just above 3/4 full. They started getting too dark at 35 mins (in my gas oven) so I covered them fully with foil and they came out perfect. We put butter on our slices when they'd cooled to just warm, and again, this was just amazingly yummy! I thought they'd be good, but not *this* good! Everyone's getting one for XMas! Num nums! :) You won't be sorry you tried this recipe, really!
