Boardwalk Quality Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I hate making fudge because I never get that smooth melt in your mouth taste, so I stopped making it for that reason. I was asked to make fudge for a tasting so I search for one high and low... I found this one, read the reviews and decided to try it. Im glad I did.. it was smooth, the only thing is I tasted more of the condensed milk that I would have liked too but that's ok. I think this fudge can be made in so many different variations that Im willing to experiment with different flavor of chips and extracts. thank you for sharing. I finally found a fudge I will continue to make.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This was the easiest soup I ever made, and as others posted it was a base it did need a few things, first I don’t care for canned veggies, so I used frozen corn, peas and a few black beans I happen to have in the freezer. I shopped at Costco and bought the rotisserie chicken and shredded some of the meat to use in the soup. It was perfect… I also seasoned it with cumin, seasoned pepper and salt. You can use any veggies you like in this soup there’s no wrong way of doing it. I topped it with corn tortilla strips, shredded cheese and avocado. It was fast and easy… Thanks for sharing……..

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This was the first time I made this cake, my son wanted me to try it so I did. I always read reviews to see what others have done to modify the original recipe.. I did follow one reviewers suggestion on cutting down the sugar and whole milk.. We don’t drink whole milk so I used 1% and only 1 cup of it. For the topping I didn’t bother with the original recipe… what I did do was use 1- 8oz cream cheese, 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, 1- 12 oz container of cool whip.. I creamed together the cream cheese and powdered sugar till light and fluffy then I added the thawed out whipped topping and mixed them till I had the thick consistency I wanted. When I made the holes in the cake I found it easier to use a straw, some of the cake will be inside the straw but I just pushed it out. Once I mixed the “ tres leches” instead of just pouring it into the holes I filled a bottle with a tip and just inserted the tip into the hole and filled it in.. It was so much faster that way especially since I used a bunt cake pan instead of a 9x13 pan.. This recipe is a keeper… Thanks for sharing…………

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
This is great.......... I was making omlets in the morning for my son before school, now all he has to do is heat them up and he's good to go!! I baked them in a cup cake pan which makes it really easy to just grab n go......... I added some spinach and mushrooms just to get more veggies in him and he really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
These are the best, after reading a few reviews I did make some changes, first split the sugar, instead of all white I did 3/4 c brown, 3/4 white, next I did 1/2 & 1/2 of butter and shortening, and used 1 c milk chocolate chips, 1 c white chocolate chips, once done, I used a med size scoop to form the cookies and put them on the cookie sheet, i chilled the whole pan and dough for about 1 hr while doing other things, then I baked them in the oven, they did not flatten out like some other people mentioned, it helps chilling the dough prior to baking. I'll be making these next christmas.. I only bake once a year and I go nuts when I do, these will be on the Christmas list for years to come. Thanks for sharing. Happy Baking!

Chile Rellenos

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This was the best and easiest recipe for rellenos, I tweaked it just a little and instead of going thru the hassle of cutting the cheese, I used string cheese, the combo stick with cheddar and mozzarella cheese, I sliced it in ½ (long way) and with that, I was able to get 2 rellenos out of one stick, it fries nicely and it doesn’t splatter like some cheeses do.. I made a tomato gravy type sauce to pour over the rellenos, that calls for one can of diced tomato with juice, 3 finely chopped celery sticks, ½ cup finely chopped onions, 2 finely chopped fresh jalapenos (remove seeds and membrane) and handful of chopped cilantro, sauté celery, onions, and jalapenos till soft, let cool and pour into blender, add the can of diced tomatoes, cilantro and blend till smooth, season with garlic salt and pepper to taste, Just pour the amount you want over the rellenos,

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Buster & Maggie went nuts when they ate the first cookie, I did omit the cheese and cornmeal and added one cup of peanut butter, that's probably the reason Buster was hanging out in the kitchen till they were done.. I poked a hole using a straw in about 6 cookies to hang on the Christmas tree, probably not a real good idea but they are part of the family.. I even made a couple of treat bags for my friends pups as well.. thanks for sharing

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was an awesome and easy recipe, I did modify it according to one review. Rather than using tomato sauce i used diced tomatos and added the sweet chile sauce, it turned out great! Next time I'll double the amount of shrimp, they were gone in no time...... thanks for sharing

Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Next time I'll use the rice it called for, i used jasmine rice and it was just too sticky, i did split up the oil by using sesame and veggie, it gave it a real good flavor. I skipped the sprouts and used other veggies i had on hand, thanks for sharing

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I was very good, but for some reason the Roughy had a very fishy taste to it, i think the next time I’ll use sword or halibut, our favorite is Tilapia so that’ll be on the list for next time. The only thing I did different was broil the fish for the last 2-3 minutes to give it a crispy topping, I’ll definitely use this recipe again, I just wont use the Orange Roughy...

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
Wonderful cake,I used my pampered chef bundt stoneware , it took a little longer than the 70 minutes, i had to bake it for another 8 minutes due to the stoneware. Came out fantastic... I decorated it with white chocolate covered strawberries and powdered sugar. Stored in fridge overnight and served it the next day, some reviewers stated it tasted better the next day and it did. thanks for sharing

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
This was a very moist and delicious cake, it did taste like the Tres Leches cake my brother makes, I love the taste of toasted coconut, so I toasted the coconut flakes and sprinkled them on the cake, it was a hit with the family..

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I’ve always had trouble with dried baked chicken, this recipe solved that problem, I like to experiment with recipes to see what works and what doesn’t, while I was crushing the crackers I soaked the pierced chicken in the beaten egg, then added coconut flakes to the cracker crumbs, I know it sounds wired but it came out really good.. It was semi sweet with a buttery flavor, everyone loved them and the chicken came out really moist, I baked them for about 25 min. covered then broiled them for about 3 minutes uncovered to toast the coconut.. Fabulous.. This is a keeper.. Thanks for sharing
