Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
Loved it! I've tried several different recipes for baked and stovetop rice pudding. This is the winner by far! It was the perfect consistency, with just the right amount of sweetness. I don't usually put raisins in my rice pudding, but I liked the golden raisins in this one. I'll probably make it without the raisins for my kids.

Pasta Sauce - Vegan

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
My picky teenage son and I are in the middle of a 21-day Daniel Fast, which limits our diet to fruits, vegetables and whole grains. It's tough to find recipes that meet these criteria while satisfying my husband and two youngest children. I'm so glad I found this recipe! I started with crushed tomatoes, as good fresh tomatoes are hard to come by this time of year. I omitted the red wine and corn starch, but otherwise followed the recipe. I was concerned about making a tomato sauce without sugar; I've never done it any other way. However, my fears were unfounded. I have never before tasted such a flavorful pasta sauce! I didn't have to puree the sauce due to the crushed tomatoes, and my finicky kids all gobbled it up all of the chunky vegetable goodness. I served it over whole wheat spaghetti, with sauteed zucchini for me and meatballs for the non-fasters. My son thought it tasted so good that he was worried that it wasn't allowed on the fast. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
I'd never tried my hand at homemade sandwich buns before, but this recipe seemed to simple to pass up. When I saw that there was no kneading and only a single rise, I was intrigued. When I pulled these gorgeous, fluffy buns from the oven, I was sold! They tasted great and held up well to saucy barbecued pork. I followed the recipe as written. This would be a great recipe for the first-time bread maker. High recommend!

Crispy Rice Candy

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
So easy and soooo good! I was short on time, so I decided to make this quick treat for a chairty dessert raffle at work. They were so simple to make and looked fantastic in cellophane treat bags. The creamy combination of peanut butter and white chocolate is addictive, but the crispy cereal, salty peanuts, and chewy marshmallows put them over the top. These little candies are definitely going to make an appearance on my holiday cookie trays.

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
So good! A friend gave me a bag of fresh geen beans from the garden, and this was the perfect way to put them to use. The garlic is a nice addition to my usual recipe. I didn't have chicken broth or balsalmic vinegar, but I thought the beans turned out great anyway. I also used a sweet onion instead of a red onion, but I'm sure the red onion would be great! I did add some of the bacon grease in place of part of the butter. As another reviewer mentioned, the beans need to simmer much longer than 10 minutes. I'm a Southern country girl, and this recipe really brought back memories!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Couldn't be easier! I had all the ingredients on hand. I had to use dried basil instead of fresh and decreased the cayenne to 1/8 teaspoon for fear that it would be too hot for the kids. It was perfect! If you haven't tried this recipe, you don't know what you're missing!

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
No eggs and no cooking... Count me in!I doubled the recipe for my 6 quart ice cream maker. I used 1 quart heavy cream and 2 quarts half and half. I reduced the sugar in the cream mixture by one third, and it was just right. I subbed strawberries for blueberries and followed another reviewer's suggestion by using prepackaged graham cracker pie crust in place of the graham cracker mixture. This is the best ice cream I've ever made, and I've made a lot of ice cream!

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Oh. My. Goodness. This is heavenly! I know that the holidays are busy, and the last thing I need is another item on my "to do" list, but... I think I'm going to have to make this eggnog a Christmas tradition! All three kids agree that it's better than storebought. Even my non-eggnog-drinker enjoyed it. This is a "must try" recipe. I goofed and added whole eggs rather than yolks. The eggs curdled, but a quick whirl in the blender took care of that little problem. I subbed a split vanilla bean for the 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract in the first step. I couldn't find light cream, but half and half seemed to work fine. I didn't add rum because of the kids, but guests could add rum according to their tastes at serving. Unfortunately, this eggnog won't be around long enough for guests to enjoy! Merry Christmas!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
So I'm not crazy about cutesy titles like "Yummy". I may have even rolled my eyes a little. But, "Yummy!" was all I could say when I tasted this chicken! I only marinated the chicken for about 30 minutes due to time constraints, so I can't imagine how heavenly it would be after marinating all day long. I skewered the vegetables separately because my kids didn't want veggies to touch their chicken. They were actually done at the same time as the chicken. As other reviewers suggested, don't forget to add some pineapple! I added it to some of the chicken skewers, and I'll definitely do it again next time... Yummy!!

Early Times Mint Julep Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I had some mint-infused simple syrup in the fridge for mojitos, so I thought I'd give this a try. Of course it's strong... Anyone can see that by reading the recipe. Mint juleps are supposed to be that way, so use a nice, smooth sippin' bourbon. I used Early Times this time around and, although technically not "bourbon", it was great! Another reviewer mentioned adding a bit of tea, and I think that sounds really refreshing! Time for another sip...

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Oh my! These are so easy and soooo spooky! Even my 7-year-old was able to make the creepy little digits! The dough was the consistency of playdough, so it was very easy to work with. The cookies are similar to butter cookies. I was out of almond flavoring, o I used extra vanilla. The almond would definitely put them over the top!They're not overly sweet and aren't the best cookies I've tasted, but the presentation more than makes up for that. I used sliced almonds and tinted the dough green. Amazing! I can't wait to see the reactions I get when I serve these tonight.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
So good! My family loved this. It was a great alternative to an expensive visit to the local Mexican restaurant, and was quick enough to prepare after an afternoon of soccer practice. I added a packet of burrito seasoning to the ground beef and followed the suggestion to spread the refried beans on the tortillas rather than adding them into the beef mixture. I used fat free refried beans. For the tortilla layers, I placed one layer of bean-coated tortillas, bean side down, and topped with a second layer of plain tortillas. I placed the sliced olives on top of half of the casserole and omitted the olives from the other half (picky kids). Everyone seemed to enjoy this topped with fat free sour cream. Great recipe!

Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was a hit at our Memorial Day cookout. The pie set up nicely and was absolutely gorgeous. I used a prepared shortbread crust, and I'll definitely do that again next time. I chopped the strawberries to fill the pie shell and arranged sliced strawberries in a pinwheel pattern on top. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion by using 1/2 cup sugar and 1-1/2 cups water. Perfect!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I loved this recipe because it was quick, easy, and set up without becoming hard and brittle. I microwaved mini chips, butter, and corn syrup for 30 seconds and stirred in the vanilla. It was a little thick, which made it more of a challenge to drizzle, but it looked great and stuck to the cake. The taste is superb. I was worried that it would taste like plain old chocolate chips, but it didn't taste that way at all.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I've made Bisquick dumplings for years. I was out of baking mix, s oI tried this "from scratch" version. These were almost as easy and were much fluffier. Even the kids noticed the difference. The cooking time was shorter, as well. This will be my new dumpling recipe.

Treasure Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I clipped this magazine from a recipe about ten years ago. These cookies are so simple to throw together, and the results are out of this world. They are super sweet and rich, but I wouldn't want them any other way. If you like Magic Cookie Bars, you'll love these chocolatey, chewy cookies.

Best Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Very good! This is a great cocktail if you don't care for a strong alcohol taste. I subbed club soda for the lemon-lime soda. I rimmed the glass with granulated sugar. I recommend sweetening the drink with simple syrup or superfine sugar, as the regular granulated sugar can be a little gritty. Use extra soda instead of rum for a refreshing mocktail. My kids love to drink these (without the rum, of course) in a fancy glass rimmed with sugar and garnished with a lime wedge. Delicious!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Absolutely the flakiest and best pie crust I've ever made, and I've made a lot of them! I didn't let the shortening chill, nor did I chill the dough before rolling. It was a little crumbly when I began rolling it out, so I'll take time to chill it first in the future. I like this recipe for its simplicity. It was the perfect compliment to the fresh cherry pie filling. I doubled the recipe and had enough to make a double-crust pie. I had enough dough left over to make a 9-inch pastry shell to freeze. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
As other reviewers stated, this recipe makes A LOT! That's okay with me, because it's so good! Children and non-drinkers can enjoy this without the rum. Also, you can add the batter to your morning coffee for a treat. I use two tablespoons of batter (sometimes three) per 8 ounces of boiling water. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
Simple and delicious. I made these for my daughter's third grade class. I followed the ingredients, but I did roll the dough in sugar before baking. I'll make them again with colored sugar for holidays. I used butter, but I may try margarine next time, as suggested by another reviewer. We used teaspoons to measure out the dough and ended up with exactly 6 dozen small cookies. I cooked them for 9 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. They didn't appear to be cooked all the way through because they hadn't begun to brown on the edges, but the cooled to a wonderful, chewy texture. I accidentally spilled an extra half-teaspoon of vanilla into the mix, but I'll do so on purpose next time.
