Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
I've made this several times, and we love it! I use Lipton's Beefy Onion soup mix and omit the gravy mix. I use the crock pot and add cornstarch about 20 minutes before the end if the gravy isn't thick enough. This is soooo delicious with mashed potatoes and "J.P's Big Daddy Biscuits" from this site. If there are leftovers I stir in a healthy dollop of sour cream and cooked mushrooms and serve over egg noodles for another meal. YUM!

Lobster Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Mmmm.. having grown up in a small Maine island fishing I know this is the one! This is the way my family has always made it. Luxuriously rich and delicious! For ultimate flavor I heat it through when making it, then refrigerate overnight and reheat gently the next day. Lobstah stew doesnt get any bettah!

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2004
Without thinking, I used pre-salted microwave popcorn, regular butter and added the 1/2 tsp salt in the recipe. WAY too salty! It wasnt quite sweet enough for my taste, but it was probably the salt over powering. Will try again, and omit the additional salt. Quick and easy.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
The first 2 times I made these cookies they spread too much and were flat, altho the flavor was DELICIOUS! Today I rolled the dough into logs in plastic wrap and popped 'em in the freezer for awhile, then sliced and baked on parchment covered cookie sheets. They took a little longer to bake because the dough was cold (15 Minutes) but they came out picture perfect! Rolling the dough made everything go soo quick and easy! I had about a dozen on a plate on the kitchen table when guests dropped by, and they all thought the cookies were from a bakery. The plate was empty in no time! I would imagine the dough logs would keep nicely tightly wrapped in the fridge or the freezer, to slice, bake and pop in the oven anytime! I add 1/2 cup more flour, and more raisins. I don't use the nuts. Make sure you have plenty of milk on hand..these are sooo good!

London Broil II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
Wow- this is fantastic! I used London Broil and marinated in a large ziploc bag instead of foil. After grilling I sliced the meat on the diagonal as typical for LB, but really didn't need to. Nice and tender, and oh so tasty! Will definately make this again and again!

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
These are awesome! After reading other reviews on messy prep, I finely chopped the pepperoni in the food processor, pulsed in the cheese and a little sauce then spread it over the dough. I used toothpicks soaked in water for 15 minutes (so they don't burn) to secure the logs, popped them in the freezer for 20 minutes then sliced with a very sharp knife. I bake them on their sides on sheets coated with a little cooking spray and ooze was minimal. A snap, and you can make an industrial sized amount in a very short amount of time. The toothpicks worked out great, and made a little handle for dipping. Also fantastic using thinly sliced ham and cheese with a honey mustard dipping sauce, or taco meat and cheddar! Perfect to do and freeze ahead to pop a handful into the toaster oven for late night munchies.

Dry Rub for Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
This recipe combined with "Baby Back Ribs" submitted by Ken Heffner's cooking method is FANTASTIC!!! I cut back on the salt and pepper a bit, let the "rubbed" ribs sit in the fridge over night, slow roast in a foil covered pan with about 1/2" of cider (or apple juice off season) then finish with Sweet Baby Ray's on the grill (or under the broiler during a blizzard). PERFECT ribs! Amazing! This comes out terrific even if you don't have time to marinate! Thank you Denise!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
FANtastic!! I've made this recipe several times, and it comes out perfect . It's so easy and delicious, quick to whip up! The last time I made this (5 days ago) I was short on a couple of ingredients and substituted brown sugar for one cup of the white, and used 2 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice mix instead of the individual spices and we loved this bread even more, which I didnt know was possible! I usually toss in raisins and or dried cranberries. Delicious! I just had the last of the bread I baked 5 days ago and it was even more tasty and still wonderfully moist! I bake it in 3 greased 1 lb coffee cans..everyone loves the round slices...

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
WOW! We love these!!! Helpful hints: Make sure your baking powder is fresh, and be gentle with the dough. Pat rather than knead.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
I too was skeptical, but after reading others reviews I lined my plate with parchment, gave it a quick shot of cooking spray, arranged my thin potato slices ..another quick spray and crossed my fingers. These are terrific!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
Ohhh! This is soooo good, and soooo easy! The first time I made this I tested the timing by stirring every 2 minutes for the first 6...then after adding the vanilla (Sometimes I use maple flavoring if I'm using pecans) and butter I checked every 2 minutes, drizzling a small stream of the syrup into a glass of ice water. When it is ready the thread will crack when you touch it and will be crunchy when you bite it. (Hard crack stage) If your test thread is chewy nuke it another minute or two then test again. In my 12 year old 700 watt microwave it takes 6 and 4.5 - 5 minutes. I have found that this doesnt turn out as well on rainy or very humid days (fudge doesnt either). I never dreamed peanut brittle could be this quick and easy! I use cocktail peanuts and omit the salt.
