Peppermint Patty Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I ended up making Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cup Brownies. I placed nine snack size Reese`s Pieces half an inch in from the all four sides of the pan as suggested. These were snack size, not the mini size chocolates. I will add a few mini`s next time here and there I think. I just like more of a good thing, but they were delicious as made! OH MY GOODNESS they were a hit. I followed a tip, and used butter, as I have very soft healthy spreadable margarine. This type of margarine gets very watery when melted. **Hard squares of margarine like Imperial, are much better for baking purposes. I used all 5 eggs, and used the measurements given for each ingredient. I also carefully spread less then half the batter in the bottom of the pan to make sure there was enough batter left over to cover the larger Peanut Butter Cups. I found that saving more batter for the top worked well. I checked them at 50 minutes and they were a little under done. It was hard to judge with the chocolate`s melted inside, I tested in several spots. I followed the directions, and baked them for the full 55 minutes. I had perfect results. I set my oven to the stated temperature, mine is a convection oven, this automatically changes the temperature to convection. OUR FAVOURITE results, they were fudgy, chewy, inside with a thin, crispy top. Perfect!**We made mint brownies too with 35 mini mints, topped with fudge icing from the back of the Hershey Chocolate Chip bag. **Make these !! So delicious! OUR new fav!

Coconut Gumdrop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This recipe has been number one with me for years. I am so excited to find it on here. My gramma made these when I was a child, and I lost her recipe. I would call them Christmas light cookies, and hold them to the light. They are chewy from the gum drops, yet crispy, and the coconut adds sweetness these are a wonderful addition to a Christmas tradition. This is a top notch cookie. Bake with confidence and enjoy! mmm is all I can say!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I did not have all the ingredients, I was missing basil, onion salt, parsley, and garlic powder. I used Onion and Roasted Garlic soup mix instead, I used the dry Italain salad dressing, and teaspoon each of, garlic plus, Italiano seasoning, fresh ground pepper, 3 bay leaves, (mine were small), 5 pound rump roast, 1 can of beef broth and water to equal 3 cups, did not add salt because of the soup mix. I trimmed all the llittle bits of fat off the roast, took the strings off. and followed the recipe directions. The meat fell apart with a fork, I added the meat back to the yummy juice. I melted cheddar cheese on warm NAAN bread piled on the beef. My husband LOVED it. I will make this again and will have the missing ingredients. But this version was wonderful!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This August 27/2011 and I am still making this dish! THIS IS WONDERFUL!!!!! Oh My!!!! !kinda good. I have made this several times now, not one complaint of any kind, except, ahhh, it's gone! I have made this for brunch, breakfeast, and a supper just becasue I really wanted it! You have to try it with the blueberry sauce, it is so wonderful! I will always make it, I was a syrup user but WE are so glad I tried the sauce! Our overnight guests loved it and went for seconds, and thirds lol! I added 1/2 cup less milk, and a half a slice more bread cubed, the second time I made it, it helped with some wetness, (which did not stop us from eating it, mmmm). I use the LOWEST FAT Cream Cheese I can find in the store. I cut it into small cubes and drop it everywhere in and around the bread. I used fresh white bread once and it was fine, I had that on hand. I used heavier french bread as well and this is WONDERFUL too! It is a real keeper, I will make this often, for friends and family, and for me! YOU SHOULD TRY THIS! PS We pick and use fresh blueberries, or I buy frozen, never from a can, that ruins the taste of the berries, and the texture is not as pleasant. I have added one cup extra blueberries to the sauce, I sprinkled 1 cup extra in and through the bread as well, with taking out 1/2 a cup of he milk the wetness with the extra berries was just great. Then it melds together overnight and mhmm mmmm when it comes out of the oven!
