Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
It took me a couple pancakes in to get it. (don't wait for bubbles!) Make sure you have enough milk, too. Lol. Mine were too thick at first. I think I didn't add enough b/c I eyed the last 1/4 cup to add. Also, I had no problems with saltiness or baking soda, but I never add all the salt in any baking recipe, and I was probably just under 3 Tsp for the powder because it wasn't coming out and I got impatient. Tastey and will continue to make it!

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
After reading some reviews, I added a little more peanut butter (a whole jar minus a bit that someone used for a sandwich, lol), and cut the sugar in half. I also added the rice crispies to the pot, thinking I was saving my bowl from messy peanut butter, but since the pot was obviously warm the mixture was harder to make into balls. So don't do that. Also, I was worried it needed to be rolled into balls immediately, but my 11 month old son decided to get into a cupboard and grab an opened box of lasagna noodles and they went EVERYWHERE and then he put one in his mouth!! So panicking I run to him to grab it before he breaks off a piece and also picked up the rest, all while my fingers were covered in peanut butter which I was so afraid I would leave behind somewhere and have him eat for the first time. But crisis averted. I then payed attention to him until nap time. When I went back to making balls it was fine, actually easier after they weren't so warm. Using a bowl of water helped to make them less sticky too. When they were in the fridge for a bit I went back to make them a better round shape, and that is currently where I'm at. I hope the chocolate part will go smoothly.. I've never melted chocolate before and don't have a double boiler. I'm planning on using a stainless steel mixing bowl! I'll also wait until my husband is home so I can do it all at once without stopping. I also used toothpicks which I hope will help with the dipping. It made 50 balls exactly. (Weird!)
