Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
I used this recipe to make doughnut holes with my Nostalgia Cake Pop Bakery. It worked perfectly! The only changes I made were increased the recipe size to serve 18 (didn't want to waste pumpkin puree), substituted the Pumpkin Spice (didn't have it) and altered the glaze. I used 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger. I'm sure it would have been great with plain Pumpkin Spice, I just didn't have it. With my 1 1/2 TBSP scoop leveled out, 8 min baking time, rolled them over and cooked for another 30 seconds, this recipe made about 3.5 dozen doughnut holes with the recipe at 18 servings (a whole 15oz can of pumpkin). For the glaze I did use a reduced amount of milk instead of water and added a couple TBSP of corn syrup. This helps the glaze harden.

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
I got adventurous with this recipe and used Jello and Knox for more flavored variety. I used the new Mango flavor. Mmmm... FYI- one small box of Jello is equal to one 1-TBSP package of Knox. I used 3 packages of Jello to 1 package of Knox and the flavor is a bit strong! I would suggest 2 small boxes of Jello to 2 1-Tbsp packages of Knox. Also, the flavor of Jello you choose shouldn't change your marshmallow color at all. As I said, 3 packages of Mango Jello and they're still white! Be sure to really whip the mallow mixture before you try to pipe for peeps. You should see the mixture starting to ball up in your Kitchen Aid - otherwise you'll get flat Easter Eggs. But still tasty!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I refrigerated the peanut mix in the pan, then cut out shapes and dipped them in the chocolate with a dollop of peanut butter. They made great Brown Bear Bars for my son's Kindergarten class.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Don't add an extra cup of sugar as someone suggested... the texture is all wrong. Dust your table with powdered sugar instead of flour and try almond extract for flavor!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I gave 4 stars because the crumble needed a little more "umph." I used 1 cup of quick oats and brown sugar instead of white and sprinkled them lightly. Also I fluffed my egg whites and added the fruit 1/2 way through moistening the ingredients as to not over mix. I also frosted mine... Frosting: 2 c powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 Tbsp butter and enough milk until desired consistency is reached (about 4-5 Tbsp). Put it in a sandwich bag in the fridge then snip a tip when you're ready! **Replace 1/2 c flour with whole wheat and try diced granny apples. Add 1 tsp cinnamon to the flour.

White Mountain Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This is extremely close to my Great Grandmother's recipe. She calls for 1/2 c more sugar, 1 tsp less baking powder and 1/2 tsp more almond. I also use whipping cream instead of milk. Follow the directions! Sift cake flour THEN measure 3c. Sift all dry ingredients again. Line the bottom of the pans with parchment, do not grease them. Fluff the shortening with half the sugar so it has a frosting like consistency. This will create air bubbles in the fat. Adding cold eggs or milk will deflate the air you worked hard to create! Also be sure to beat your egg whites until soft peaks form by using the other half of the recipe sugar and ONLY egg whites. If you add yolks it will not fluff up right and you will not have enough air. This will take about 10 min. Don't deflate mix as you're adding the dry and wet ingredients. Do this by adding the most amount of dry first to coat with the fat before starting to add the cream. *Mix by hand* Do not over mix once the baking powder has been activated (mixed with the wet). You should have to spread your cake into the pans, not pour. It will be visibly bubbly! Oven temperature is also key - must be a steady 350. Even if you follow directions, a faulty oven will spoil it all. Have a suspended thermometer to make sure your oven temp is correct (25deg too hot or cold makes a huge difference). **Do not open the oven or it will fall! Send running children outside!** Let the cake cool in the parchment lined pans.

Spaghetti Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Good concept! I used a 10 1/2" spring form pan, 1 lb of ground buffalo, 1 lb of thin spaghetti, 2 jars of spaghetti sauce, 4 eggs (medium), and 2 cups of shredded mozzarella. Brown up the meat (I add 1/4 tsp ground oregano, 1/2 tsp sweet basil, 1/4 tsp season salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp minced onion and 1/2 tsp minced garlic), add 1 jar of sauce, set aside. Cook the spaghetti, rinse with cold water, add beaten eggs to cooled spaghetti (otherwise you'll get egg chunks in your cake), mix in other jar of sauce. Layer half of spaghetti mix, pressing slightly. Next layer the meat mix. Then layer the rest of the spaghetti and top with mozzarella. I cooked mine for the time allowed in the recipe with a cookie sheet underneath to keep any seeping off my oven. Sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese. My 3 and 4 year olds ate 2nds of this "cake"!!! Happy April Fools! I'll be making it again!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Add 1/2 can of jelled Cranberry sauce to ketchup mix! Leave the brown sugar/ketchup sauce on the BOTTOM OF THE PAN! TIP: Put a piece of aluminum foil over the top and fold over the edge of the pan. This keeps the mixture on the loaf and not all over your kitchen. This way the sauce stays "saucy" and not cooked on the loaf. It also mixes with any juice that cooks off and makes it extra yummy (Don't cut the brown sugar for this reason)! :P Plus, it makes wrapping up any leftovers and clean up a breeze. For the loaf, cut the milk to 1/2 a cup, use about 2/3 package of saltines, 1 tsp. minced garlic and 1 tsp mustard seed. Not like Mom's... BETTER! Something great for my kids to strive for in the future! :D

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
Very good! I also coated mine in a nice chocolate shell. I made orange flavor with minced orange peel/cinnamon coating (dark chocolate shell), rum with coconut, mint with crushed candy canes. I also tried this recipe with white chocolate chips, 1 1/2 tsp rum and 1/2 tsp nutmeg (dark chocolate shell) -- an eggnog truffle! These are rather rich so don't make them too large. Perfect Christmas delicacy! Merry Christmas!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
Excellent.... but next time I'd make a couple changes: The milk should be scalded - this would lead to enough evaporation so the flour is just the right amount *Make sure it cools down to luke warm before adding to yeast to prevent killing it!*; 1 1/2c sugar; vanilla (1-2 tsp) - my fiancé said that the bread flavor was lacking; 1 1/2x the glaze (I only coated once). Other than that, good stuff!

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
Very good jar recipe. I took the advice of other reviews and used 1 c. butter and 3 eggs. To make it look less like a jar of sugar, I made up the flour mix and put half in the jar first. The other half I divided again and mixed in 1/6 c. cocoa, & 1/2 c. sugar and added it to the jar. The next layer I added 1/3 c. cocoa (funnel with printer paper), the 1 c. sugar. I then mixed the rest of the flour mix with remaining 1/6 c. cocoa and 1/2 c. sugar and added it to the jar. Since not everyone likes nuts I made half of my jars with half white chocolate and chocolate chips. Another option would be to wrap nuts in saran wrap so they could add them or take them out if they wish. I used chopped macadamia nuts. USE A WIDE MOUTH JAR! Very tasty!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
oooo so good! I wasn't planning on baking any up, I just making up jars as christmas presents but I made the mistake of pressing down each layer so I had a big gap on top and decided to bake them up and refill the jar. I used a regular quart mason jar and layered them in this order: flour, oats, flour mix, white chips, cranberries (pack the berries when you measure), walnuts (instead of peacans - cheaper), brown sugar and white. You can also wait to put the nuts in until the end, just incase they don't want nuts. Very pretty... and oh so good. I've definately found my new favorite cookie! Update: Through travelling the jar got all mixed up.. I'd reccomend one and a halfing this recipe and pressing each layer for a more compressed fit.

Excellent -- I took the advice from other raters and it was prefect! Here’s what I did: 3 cups cooked pasta shells, no cashews, 2 full chicken breasts, 6 oz pineapple tidbits, 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice, 1 big red delicious apple (peels on), 1/3 cup celery, 1/3 cup carrots (shredded with a serrated knife), 1 can mandarin oranges, 1/2 cup red grapes, 1 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 3 tablespoons mint flakes. I also used the remaining pineapple juice and the mandarin orange juice to boil the pasta. Good stuff, very pretty! Update: Didn't like next day...
