Microwave Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Made once and then made modifications using another recipe and cooking for a 1000 watt oven. Increased the butter to 1 tab (thinking about using 2 Tab next time) and increased peanuts to 1.5 cups. For my 1000 watt I reduced times on the second and third cooking: 3 min instead of 3 1/2 and 1 min instead of 1 1/2 min. Cooked perfectly.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Worked beautifully! Balanced sweetness. Made second batch as chocolate dough by subbing 1/4 cup of the flour with cocoa powder and used white chocolate chips instead. For the chocolate dough, I only used 1 cup white sugar and no brown sugar. I bet that the dough can be used successfully for M&M cookies, Macadamia cookies, snickerdoodle cookies and white chocolate chip with dried cranberries cookies. Baking them for 15 min was perfect. The key was to set the oven to preheat while preparing the dough. Thanks for the great recipe Elizabeth!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Light, fluffy and easy to put together. I melted the butter after measuring and use half and half for 1/2 of the milk. The other 1/2 was fat free milk. Will attempt with gluten free baking mix.

Best Stovetop BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Maybe the sauce needs to be doubled for the stove but I watched the ribs and made sure to simmer on medium low. It didn't take 45 minutes since I first browned the ribs on bacon grease. I drained the grease and then simmered on the marinade. I diluted the remaining sauce and poured on top the ribs. Made rice with herbs from the site to go with the ribs.

Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
I just doubled the glaze so that cake would be soaked in lemony goodness! I also used canola oil instead of butter for a moister cake.

Fresh Apple Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
The batter was too thick for me so I added 6 tab milk. I wanted spices in it, so I added 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp each of cloves, nutmeg and ginger. Very moist! Baked in a bundt pan. I didn't use walnuts but didn't miss them.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
This recipe is amazing! I followed the recipe exactly and used the tip on dropping the balls in the ziplog bag with the sugar and cinnamon mix. I used regular Crisco for the shortening. The mix didn't stick. It worked out great!

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
Great recipe, kinda sweet. I would cut back sugar by 2/3 cup since the gelatin has sugar already. Everything else is just perfect! As for different flavors, I made this recipe again, without strawberries and using chocolate instant pudding mix (small) and adding melted unsweetened chocolate squares ( 4 - 2 ounce each) for the full recipe. This was delicious! Maybe you can try it with other pudding mixes too. Again, I suggest to cut down the sugar by 2/3 cup. The cake turned out moist and fluffy.

Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
My 10 year old daughter and I loved this recipe. The dough was very easy to handle. I made all the variations, and I used a small plastic egg (one half makes the shape of half an egg) sprayed with Pam to shape the dough. Awesome! You can also press these on any other molds and make candies for all occasions. Sprinkle with decorations immediately after dipping in chocolate since the coating sets quickly. Keeps really well at room temperature!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Awesome! I soaked the raisins in water and then drained. It was easy to make, my daughter loved it and even asked to have some in her lunch box for St. Patrick's day. It was easy to halve the recipe for the two of us. I used 2 tab sugar instead of 1. We had it with jelly.

White Bread For The Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I wouldn't change anything on this recipe. The bread was wonderful and tasty. My only recommendation for those that use the bread maker is to check your dough within the first 5 minutes of mixing. If your dough has the right consistency, it will be wonderful bread. Remember to let the ingredients mix well and add flour or water 1 tablespoon at a time if the dough is moist or dry. Sometimes the way that we measure the flour affects this. Remember that the perfect dough mixes into a nicely even rounded ball that doesn't stick to the sides of the mixing container.

Refrigerator Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I made half the recipe and it was awesome! I would make some changes to the amount of salt and actually have 1 teaspoon salt for half the recipe. I could barely taste it when I did 1/2 teaspoon for half the recipe. For shortening, I used canola oil. I also baked my rolls at 350 F to let them brown nicely. They puffed up beautifully. I baked them at least for 12 minutes and then I waited until they browned slightly on the top. Thanks so much! I will use this as my standard for making rolls. Next time, I will substitute 1/3 - 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat and I might play with the sugar amounts and add some honey. I might even substitute some of the flour for oatmeal to make honey oatmeal rolls. Who knows what I will do next!

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
I was delighted with this recipe but since I made some changes, my review is on the recipe with comments on my changes: First, I substituted the bread flour for all purpose and used 3 cups all purpose flour. Seconds, I used 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast. Third, I made this bread by hand. Fourth, I mixed all the dry ingredients together and warmed up the water to 125 F - 130 F degrees and then added with the oil to the dry mix. I am though, very careful and make sure that the water is exactly 130 F degrees and no more. I use a candy thermomether for this. I used the measurement for water mentioned: 3/4 cup plus 2 Tab. I needed to add 1 more Tab. The dough should feel soft and a little bit sticky. When you touch it, slight traces of dough should remain in your hand. Make sure that you knead that dough well if you make this recipe by hand folding the corners towards the center of the dough and punching down with your knucles. 5 minutes of this should do. I turned on the oven to 200 f for 2-5 minutes and turned off to get oven ready for rising. I then made the first rising cycle by brushing lightly all the dough with oil and covering with a towel on a glass bowl. The second rise was done after punching down and kneading the dough some more,in the baking pan with non-stick oil on it and covering with the towel again. I baked at 350 F for 25 - 30 min. This bread has a very soft and evenly brown crust. :-)

Mini Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I made modifications to the recipe. First, I upped the corn meal flour to 1/2 cup and added 2 Tab sugar (will up to 1/4 cup sugar since my child eats corn dogs without sauces)and added some honey.I will start with 1/2 cup milk first and move up to 3/4 cup and no more next time. I forgot to account the effect of the honey on the dough stickiness. If the dough was too sticky, I added white flour around 1 Tab at a time. I ended up with a dough that was somewhat sticky but could be rolled. I also bought some hotdogs and cut each in 4 pieces instead of buying mini hotdogs. The mini corn dogs turned out great and my child and friends loved them. They even helped on rolling them on dough. From now on, I won't be buying corn dogs but will make them this way.

Martha Washington Candies

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
This recipe is very easy to make but I would cut down the margarine to 1/2 cup. I have added cinnamon to the mix and it has been great. I am thinking of varying the recipe in several ways. First, I will change the butter to cream cheese the next time to make the mix firmer and reduce condensed milk to half. I will also consider different types of nuts and dried fruit, flavorings, some orange peel and spices. Another idea that comes to mind is omit the coconut and to add two or three melted unsweetened chocolate squares (cooled down) to the mix and then use white chocolate chips for the coating instead. Then maybe, I would drizzle them with melted caramel once it is set. The second idea would be to make it chocolate and dip on some melted mint coating. I tried the melted chocolate chips for dipping the candy and I needed to add a little bit of oil to make it thinner (1 Tab oil for 3/4 cup chips). I choose chips that have sugar and chocolate liquor as the main ingredients. Surprisingly enough, there are generic brands that have these ingredients and are better than the name brands.
