Old Fashioned Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I tried for years to make my mothers old fashioned fudge only to come up repeatedly with thick goo that never set. This recipe not only worked, but tastes exactly like my mothers. The key, and I can not stress this enough, is to let the temperature go up two to three extra degrees on your candy thermometer. No more goo ever! And now my grandchildren are in love with this old fashioned fudge too!

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
OMGosh! This recipe was fabulous! I never made peanut brittle before and this turned out better than I had ever hoped. I have heard horror stories about too thick and too hard when making peanut brittle, so my expectations were very low and this was better than the most wonderful in any shop I ever bought from. Making it again this year to go in my neighbors goodies boxes. Now you know that it has to be good to do that! :)

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This recipe was good, but I overcooked it because it didn't brown the way suggested and by the time it did brown, all the cinnamon sugar had melted out the bottom and both bottom and top were hard as stale bread. My oven is 3 months old and a perfect tempature, so I know it was not that. Next time (and I will try it again using the exact timing) I will brush the top with egg yolk wash before baking. I can't give it a five star though because of the browning thing.

Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
A great recipe and one I modified to make quicker by using Rice-A-Roni wild rice. The vegitarians in the family loved it. The only problem I could see is a whole half of squash is a very large portion, especially for a child, so we cut ours in quarters after we stuffed them, but the next time we will cube up the squash and serve it in individual dishes as others have suggested. I do not like squash, but from the raves I got, everyone else does! A very happy cook!

Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
We have vegetarians in our family so this recipe is a wonderfully hearty main dish and the meat eaters in the family love it to. The cranberries hold in the moisture and add a decorative flair! It is a holiday favorite when our table is crowded with the entire family! Yummy!

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
I found this recipe perfect as is, and with a side of spanish rice and the refried beans, my husband said it was better than any he had eaten in Mexico City! I did find other uses for the sauce. I combined the enchilada sauce and green chilipeppers in a sauce pan and heated thru. Now I can use it with all of our Mexican dishes since everyone (but me) likes thier food swimming in greenchili! Thank you for that! Now if I could just master sopillas!...sigh... :D

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
I love making bread and this recipe held up well to my extra ingredients, like shredded cheddar and onion flakes or garlic salt, oregano and parmesan. I roll out the bread and sprinkle my 'extras' on top then roll it back up, brush tops with egg yolk wash and sprinkle more of the 'extras' on top, pop it in the oven. No additional time is needed for the baking. The family and friends take big chunks slathered with butter and call it a meal! Even the white bread goes as fast as I can make it! Yummy!

Beef Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Excellent recipe and to keep the time cooking the beef down, I cut up leftover pot roast and roast beef I had on hand in the freezer. Fast and very easy!
