Sweet Potato Pie from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
A 40 oz can of "Bruce's Sweet Potatoes" netted me only 24 oz of potato by weight, the rest was water. Since I DOUBLED the recipe I needed a small can also. Btw if you cook much a small digital scale isn't very costly. I use mine often. I warmed potatoes, (minus the water of course from the can) for about 90 seconds in the microwave & mixed room temp butter with mixer until smooth. Then mixed the other ingredients. I made the filing just before bed, refrigerated in covered mixing bowl & baked it in pie shells the next morning. For those asking measurement for pound of potato I would guess its about 2 1/4 cup per pound. Using the can potato makes this a really simple pie anyone can make. Never substitute can milk for condensed milk cuz you will surely miss the sugar. I added 1/4 tea of cream of tarter cuz I just can't leave well enough alone.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
Loved this. I doubled the recipe and it worked out fine. I took strawberries that I had sliced with sugar, put about 6-7 raspberry on top of that & finished with whip cream. I made them in dessert glasses. My only regret was adjusting the recipe by adding vanilla bean. The bean mostly settled in the bottom of each dessert glass. I will stick to the recipe as written. I did put the pot in ice water while cooling it down, stirring the whole time. Only took a few minutes to cool this way.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
I added the 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tarter as someone suggested . These are now my favorite after 35 years of making various chocolate chip recipes. Took 13 min in my electric oven. Thanks so much for sharing! The 2nd time I made these I added 3/4 c of white chocolate chips instead of nuts.

Fluffy Seven-Minute Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
I'm writing a review because they're so many versions of this recipe & I don't want to lose which was my favorite. This is the frosting I use when making coconut cake. I've tried a dozen from here & Food Network & like this best. I use my kitchen aid mixer.

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
Followed the recipe with the exception of adding a tablesoon of dried chives. Oh it did take little extra buttermilk. I baked them on buttered pizza stone, which took only a couple minutes longer. I made them small out of preference. I've made many different biscuits this one rocks. I was surprised the dried minced onions worked so well. I plan to use this recipe for appetizers soon.

Broccoli with Poppy Seed Butter and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I won't make this again as its low on flavor. My husband didn't care for it either. We ate it & it was ok, but I was happy I didn't serve it to guest.

Mom's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I couldn't find a recipe exactly like I wanted, so I adjusted this one. I used half Mayo & half sour cream, & added a thinly sliced sweet onion. I also salted sliced cukes a couple hours & drained/rinsed before making. This is best if made at least a few hours before serving. Fresh dill is always best but dried worked ok in this.

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Loved it! I made the whole box of Orzo as directed, doubled both squash, added red & orange bell pepper, & more onions. I increased the oil because of the additional veggies used. I added Tbs of butter & approx 6 oz of feta cheese after draining pasta. Further I used salt free broth instead of water, in addition to the bouillion. I added about 8 chopped basil leaves & equal amount of parsley to the oil before tossing the veggies. Everyone loved this dish! Keep in mind, never use cooking wine, it will make any dish taste nasty. Buy wine you drink for cooking.

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Don't forget roasted garlic is good in home made vinegar & oil type salad dressings. Mixed in hummus or probably 1000 other dishes. It's mild when roasted & you can use the whole head easy.

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I make this often for parties & it's always a hit. I've only made it with fresh corn. This is one of those recipes you gotta try. Never a kernel left over! Update: I wondered why some didn't rate this as high. I found the trick to this salad is to make sure your corn is sweet. This winter I made it with corn that was bland. I will taste the raw corn b4 I buy it now. When it's sweet this is great. I've also now tried can & frozen, nothing beats fresh sweet corn. When the corn is right this is one of my favorite side dishes.

Bacon Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Love these & make often. I add a teaspoon of chili powder (give or take) per cup of brown sugar to give it a little spark. Try various crackers. Do use parchment paper otherwise these will stick if you don't get them out fast. Great appetizers to serve but you will need a lot of them, they go fast.

Frosty Mochas

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I freeze left over coffee in ice trays & use it to make these often. I also add a handful of ice & blend in my ninja machine. Top with whip topping. Cocoa powder works if you can't have sugar. I make these like a slushy. Love love love these!

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Great! I've made these numerous times & folks claim I make the best they have ever eaten, thanks to this recipe. I fry mine in deep oil at 345 degrees as I find this temp keeps the onion from pulling out of the coating when you bite into the ring. I do add various seasons to the batter depending on my mood. I discovered it's not a bad coating for fish in a pinch, cut the fish smaller pieces & dip.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Made this for a football party & everyone loved it. I made mine in a bowl & poured it into a greased pan. Made a cooked chocolate frosting & poured it over while cake & frosting both were still warm. It is heavier/different than the average cake & very moist. This is a keeper, thank you very much. Highly recommend you try this for something different.
