Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
Delicious and well worth all the extra effort this cookie takes. Some changes that I made were to use 1/2 butter, 1/2 butter flavor Crisco. I also upped the cocoa by 1/4 cup and I always, always, always use parchment paper when I bake. With this cookie, it's a must. If a couple of cookies "burst", you will not have a pan to scrub, the parchment will contain the mess. But if you bake these for no more than 8 minutes, bursting should not be an issue. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the cooling rack so they can set up. These were a huge hit last year at our annual cookie exchange and I have been ordered to make them again this year! Oh, and one more thing, if you use pecans in place of the walnuts (though both are divine!), you will have more of a "turtle" cookie, yum!!

Fudge Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Oh, these are so good!! Here are my tweaks: I don't use cooking spray on my baking sheets. I use parchment paper. But even if I didn't, my sheets are non-stick and the spray wouldn't be necessary. Second, I use margarine in place of the Crisco (in almost all my recipes that call for Crisco, or shortening, I use either butter or good quality baking margarine). And third, these are great with walnuts in place of the pecans, if you prefer. Just make sure to chop very fine. These really are very delicious cookies well worth the little extra time and effort that they take.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
These are absolutely delicious as written. On my second try, I did add 1 teaspoon of Mexican Vanilla, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I also decreased the white sugar to 1/2 cup. In place of the butter, I used unsweetened apple sauce. Both ways were excellent, but I did like the altered batch a bit better. (Cinnamon and vanilla make everything better, right?? haha) To Marsha in Jackson Hole: I think if you overfill your pans and don't make allowances for your high elevation (something you should know to do since you live in such a place and therefore should not have to rely on recipe directions to tell you...), you should not fault the recipe or its author by giving a low rating.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Great, delicious cookies! I just made another batch for a Christmas cookie exchange and they came out perfect! I did decrease the flour by about 1/4 cup and I almost never bake with butter, but I do use a high end baking margarine. It's never failed me yet! So if you like butter - go for it! But if not, know that using a good quality baking margarine will yield excellent results too. Since the margarine is salted, I omit the extra salt called for in this recipe. (Something I do for almost all recipes, really. You rarely need to add more if your butter or margarine is salted.) I also often use almond extract in my sugar cookies for that extra little something that everyone seems to love. And lastly, for the sugar in this recipe, I use 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar. It makes the cookies a bit softer and even easier to roll out.

Cheesiest Potatoes Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Delicious and pretty easy! But bake at 350, NOT 250. That is definitely a typo.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
These have been a favorite weekend breakfast muffin in my house for years. But you can make them so much lighter and healthier by subbing 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce and 1/4 cup oil (in place of the 1 cup of oil called for in this recipe). I also use brown sugar in place of white sugar in my muffins. It just makes them all the more delicious and a bit more moist - yummy!

Christmas Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Delicious recipe, but to make it even easier to roll these out, use 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Really - try it! It makes all the difference!!

'Adios, Turkey' Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Delicious and just the right amount of "kick"! The only thing I did different was to use fresh mushrooms (I have a huge aversion to jarred mushrooms!) It was a big hit at my house. Thanks for the recipe!!

Campbell's Kitchen Turkey and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Four stars as written, but it ratchets up to five if you just double the soup and the milk - otherwise it's really a bit too dry. Also, you can substitute chicken broth for the milk/water in the recipe. Add some seasoning to this dish and it gets even better! I used some poultry seasoning, parsley, and fresh ground pepper and it was a tasty, hearty, filling meal for my family.

Classic Sugar Cookies by Crisco® Baking Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
This is a pretty good sugar cookie recipe, not my favorite though. I did give up using shortening in my baking year ago, so when I make this or any baked good calling for Crisco, I substitute butter or good baking margarine.

Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
My tenderloin came out moist and delicious using this marinade. I did use low sodium soy sauce and left out the salt all together. (Even with low sodium soy sauce, there is more than enough salt in it to make adding more from the shaker unnecessary.) Scrumptious! Oh, and for a slightly different taste, try using lite teriyaki sauce in place of the soy sauce - also very, very good!

Broccoli and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
I lightened this up a bit by making a few small changes - I only used half the butter called for in the recipe and I omitted the mayo. It was still very moist and delicious, mainly because I made the Stove Top stuffing in a pot before combining with other ingredients. I added a bit more water while making it, so it would be very moist. Instead of layering, I mixed everything together and baked for 30 minutes. Delicious while being a bit lighter in fat and calories!

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Definitely cut the milk back to 1 1/2 cups! I could see right away the milk amount was too high for this recipe, so I used 1 1/2 cups and had a lovely, delicious casserole.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
This is very delicious, just as written. I did tweak it the second time by adding less sugar and it was perfect for us! But may I say to folks who come and slam the fact that this has sugar in it, please, if you don't like sugar in your cornbread, then simply leave it out of this recipe or move on to a different recipe. Why leave negative comments simply because this recipe is written with ingredients you find out of place?

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Loved this recipe! I did add a bit more cinnamon and I used the tip about heating the pumpkin and spices prior to filling the pie shell. It really seemed to make for a smoother, richer taste in the finished pie. For years I used a recipe almost exactly like this, but it called for sugar and evaporated milk - I like this much, much better with the condensed milk and eliminating the sugar. Thanks for a super easy, super delicious pumpkin pie recipe!

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Scrumptious!! I found the whole process easy and delicious. I didn't use wine though, instead I used organic chicken broth so I could make some gravy. This is my only way to cook turkey for years now and it never disappoints.

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Yummy! I used non-stick aluminum foil to line my jelly roll pan and it worked like a charm - no sticking! I also left out the lemon juice and upped the vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon. For my taste, this called for too much ginger, so I only put in about 1/2 teaspoon and it was perfect for me. I also added a dash of nutmeg.Prior to rolling up my baked cake, I dusted it with confectioner's sugar, placed a piece of parchment on top and rolled it up with the foil and the parchment - worked great with little cracking and no sticking of the cake when it was cool and I unrolled it. Though this is very similar to the Libby recipe, it's just different enough that I got better results using this version.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Yummy! But I did double the sauce recipe (except for the soy sauce. For that I kept it at 1/2 cup and used low sodium). I also left out the salt - it is definitely NOT needed since the soy sauce (even low sodium) adds more than enough saltiness. I have made this twice, once with the brown sugar and once using honey instead. While I personally love honey, I did prefer the brown sugar in this recipe - but that's just a personal preference.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Oooh, seriously good pie! My trick for really good apple pie (whichever recipe I use) is to mix up the apples in the filling. I use at least two, usually three, different types of apples in the pie. (Granny smith, macintosh, rome, gala, etc.) Don't be afraid to experiment with your apple selection. I have had great success with almost all apples that have even a hint of tart to them. I kept pretty close to the actual recipe with three exceptions... I never use lemon juice on my apples (I just don't like the underlying taste of it in my pies), I did make a bit more topping, and I always use corn starch, not flour to thicken my pies.

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
In a word, scrumptious! For the best results, use the best chips you can afford. I used the Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chips and this was so rich, delicious and decadent that it was gone within the hour (I made it as one of several pies for a baby shower). While I am a huge chocoholic, I did use a vanilla wafer crust in place of the chocolate. I felt it needed that contrast for a more complex flavor contrast with the rich filling and it really was quite delicious.
