Potato Chip Cookies VI

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
Overall, these cookies turned out very nicely. They were soft and chewy and tasted yummy. I added 1/2 tsp. orange flavoring (just because) and 1 cup of dark-chocolate chips (again, just because). Good combinations. After adding the chips and nuts, it became too thick for my mixer to handle, so I had to dig in with my hands. I did not, however, give this recipe a 5. I had 2 issues with this recipe: 1st, the shortening made these greasier than they should have been. I'll try actual butter next time, maybe. 2nd, the recipe states to put the dough on an UNprepared cookie sheet. BAD IDEA!!! I left one cookie sheet UNprepared; I decided to see if it'd make a difference. Thank goodness I sprayed the rest - the cookies on the UNprepared sheet BURNED after 8 minutes!!! I had to throw out about 6 cookies - not even my toddler would eat it (and he tried to eat just the top, but he finally threw it down). The rest of the cookies on that sheet, I had to scrape the bottoms. The rest of the cookies, however, were very yummy. I even dipped half in chocolate (and others in melted vanilla). Love these cookies!!!

Healthier Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
I made these as directed in the recipe (except for the fork trick...). The cookies turned out YUMMY!!! Soft and chewy, and I feel like I can eat them without feeling as bad lol I drizzled some chocolate on some of these, and melted vanilla on a few others. It turned out quite nicely!!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
YUMMY RECIPE!!! My entire family approved (from the hubby, to the pre-teen, to the elementary kid, to the toddler!) I made this recipe as-is except for one thing. I didn't have any buttermilk. Normally, I would simply make my own (mix in 2 tablespoons to 2 cups of milk and let it sit for a few minutes until it begins to sour). This time, however, I had sour cream. I'd read that you can replace buttermilk with 3 parts yogurt and 1 part milk. So I used sour cream instead of the yogurt. Basically, I used 1-1/2 cups sour cream and 1/2 cup milk. The bread baked with the creamiest texture I've had from a bread in a long time. It was absolutely delicious!!!

Potato Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
I had fun putting this together. Mostly simple. A note - read directions very carefully!! I had no idea there was a difference in the mouths of the jars, and I didn't read closely enough, so I ended up with a ton of Regular-mouthed jars. You REALLY need the WIDE-mouthed jars - it would have made it SO much easier to press each layer!!! I can't wait to give these out as prizes at the baby shower! We'll also be making some of the cookies so that people won't be too afraid of them! :o)

Raisin Crunch Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Mostly easy to put together. I highly recommend using a WIDE-mouthed jar. It will make it much easier to press down each layer.

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Very easy. I'd recommend using wide-mouth jar, as it's easier to press each layer down all around. I shaped and taped a sheet of paper (8.5"x11") into a funnel that fit perfectly into each jar; this made things much easier and much less messy! Even the cocoa powder did not coat the sides (which the recipe warns about).

Russian Tea II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Very easy to make and very tasty! I'm not a fan of tea - my husband can't get me to drink the stuff - but I had to taste-test this one, as it used my favorite drink (TANG). I actually liked it! Very yummy!!! I am using this mixture for gifts for a baby shower - it filled up 3 pint jars!

Cappuccino Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
This was an excellent cappuccino-on-the-go mix!!! I JUST finished making this mix and putting it in jars (they'll make some excellent prizes for my sister's baby shower!). Before I jarred the mix, I tried it (of course!). It tasted quite a bit like cappuccino my mother makes (she was spoiled by Italy, so...). I prefer my coffee products a little sweeter (I like a little coffee with my sugar...), so I added a couple of chocolate chips to my sample, and they added just the extra touch of sweetness I wanted! SOOOOoooo... I added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the mixture before putting it into the jars. Yummy!!!

Food For The Gods II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
This was absolutely delicious!! I made it for a church pot luck the morning of. No adjustments. My dates came prepackaged and pre-chopped, so I put them in the food processor; I couldn't quite purée them, but I came as close as I could - smaller sticky chunks I had to break apart. I did the same with my walnut halves. The result was awesome!! By the end of the pot luck, there was almost none left, so I'm making more right now - except that I'm out of dates, so I'm trying a mixture of raisins and dried cranberries. We'll see!

Italian Hot Turkey Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
I LOVED this recipe!!! I have a ton of black eyed peas leftover from our church pot luck, so I've been scouring the internet for recipes to use them in. This is a winner! I used the 8 oz. of pasta like the recipe called for, and I thought it was just right (I actually probably used a little more). I broke each into 4 pieces. The only differences I made was to use Kielbasa and tomato sauce, since I didn't have those specific ingredients. Yum!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
I LOVE this cornbread!!! It reminds of the cornbread my daddy always made when I was growing up! Just smelling this bread as it bakes makes my mouth water. This is also kid-approved by both my kids and husband-approved! :) One trick, if you like that old-fashioned feel to it (like my dad always did). While your oven is preheating, place a larger (9-inch?) black, cast-iron pan (WITH handle) in your oven. When you're ready to pour your batter into the pan (rather than an 8-inch baking pan), pull out the cast-iron pan, spray it, pour your batter in, and bake according to directions. YUM!!! I'm planning to use this for our church pot luck this Sunday, by the way!!!

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
BEST MEATBALLS EVER!!! My 6-yr-old hates meatballs, but I made her try one of these anyway. She went back & attempted to load her plate down with as many as she could get! I did make one major change to this recipe: Spinach. Instead of the ground pork, I used a 10-oz pkg of chopped spinach (squeeze all the water out after thawing). I had to stop myself from eating these before dinnertime! YUMMY!!!!!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Great melt-in-your-mouth flavor! This is the best - and EASIEST - beer bread that I have made yet. I actually had to go back for more! 6/24/14 - I'm making Mixes in Jars for prizes for a baby shower, so I decided to make this mix. Turned out very pretty, and I'm sure it will be a hit! If you would like to do this, simply mix all the DRY ingredients in a Quart-sized jar (WIDE-mouth is the best!!!). Press down each layer as you put them in the jar (I used a sheet of paper as a funnel to make less mess). Then add instructions explaining the oven temperature, additional ingredients (beer and butter - what better??), and how long to cook.

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
We grew up eating these! Always one of our favorite treats! Except we called them "Eggs in a Hole." A few tips... 1. To cut the hole in the bread, use a small cup (with an opening smaller than the bread); place it top down on the bread and press down until you can remove the center piece. 2. After you add the egg into the frying pan, sprinkle salt & pepper to taste, while still unset. 3. Put a little butter on that little circle of bread left behind and fry it up beside your Egg in a Boat. 4. Do not keep the fire up too high - Medium at the most. Place a lid on the pan so that the heat is kept in and circulates - this helps to cook the top of the egg at the same as the bottom, so you don't have to try the tricky task of flipping. 5. Enjoy!!!

Homemade Bagels

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
These are absolutely wonderful - and my 10-yr-old and 4-yr-old both agree! I eat bagels most mornings for my on-the-go breakfast; I'm tired of the store-bought, so I tried making my own. Million times easier than I'd feared. I highly recommend following the tips in the reviews by "etirniti" and "Mrs. Tran." (Click View All Reviews and sort reviews by Most Helpful). My dough made 6 normal-sized bagels. I'll be making this again and again!

Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I loved these rolls, as did everyone else who ate them! I used butternut squash, so my rolls had a very nice yellow tint to them. Many previous reviews mentioned the large size of the rolls. I found them to be too large, as well, so I simply made 24 rolls instead of 12. They were the perfect size!

Turtle Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This pie was wonderful, but be warned! It's very RICH! I made very few adjustments. I made my own pie crust, which added to the flavor: 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. softened butter, 1/2 c. chopped pecans; blend; press into the pie pan bottom & sides; bake for 15 minutes. Then follow the directions from there. I didn't have 2 boxes of vanilla pudding (& not going back to the store on Thanksgiving!!), so I used 1 box of vanilla & 1 box of chocolate pudding. WOW!!!!! :o) I also used my own whipped cream, with coconut flavoring and about 1/3 c. of coconut flakes mixed in. :o)

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Absolutely Fantastic! We were salivating as it baked! I did make a couple of adjustments: 1. Rather than pumpkin puree, I used a mixture of Acorn Squash & Butternut Squash - 2 cups. 2. I was REALLY in a Ginger mood, so I used 1 tablespoon of Ginger. 3. For reduced sugar, I used 1-1/2 c. of sugar and 3/4 c. Splenda. 4. I was short on eggs, so I only used 2 eggs. Then, I pureed together 1 cup of applesauce (in place of the oil!!!) and 1 banana. You can't really taste the banana for all the other flavors!!! Also, rather than 2 loaf pans, I used 2 square cake pans; they baked in only 50 minutes. I can't wait to share this with my co-workers tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
I made this dish for a pot-luck dinner at church - there was NOTHING left!!! :o) I only made a few adjustments, due to my own lack of ingredients. I was out of milk, so I used evaporated milk in its place. I figured out too late that I had only 1 bag of frozen corn, so I used 1 bag of corn and 1 bag of frozen peas. Surprising mixture, but wonderful result!!! I also used 1/2 tsp of pepper - I like pepper :o)

Tortilla Surprise

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
My 4-year-old is a Slow, Picky eater. We are constantly having to make sure she's eating her food because she gets easily sidetracked. Well, I made Tortilla Surprise tonight, and she scarfed it down - and asked for more!!! This was a wonderful dish! I did make a couple of alterations - I did not have chiles, so I left that out. In its place, for the flavor, I added a layer of enchilada sauce on top of the beans. Also, when cooking my ground turkey (healthy option), I added onion powder for an extra kick. Yum!!!
