Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I used extra virgin coconut oil to saute the veggies in and sprinkeld curry as I went. Also, presauteed my chicken cubes in a seperate small skillet with coconut oil and curry. I really like coconut and curry together so I upped the curry in the flour /curry mix and added some as I went, here also, I added 1 small dash of cayenne pepper. After the 1/2 hr broth boil(didn't have broth, so I used 4 seasoned bouilllon cubes and 4C water because of this, I Omitted the salt, pepper and thyme), I threw in a handfull of unsweetened coconut flakes and the other called for ingredients for this point. This really does get better the longer it simmers. Just make sure to keep stirring from the bottom, as the flour will continue to thicken the soup. The curry really kicks in as it cooks. I mixed unsweetened coconut milk with half and half for the cream mix-in and it really added a nice final touch. Very very good recipe as is. You don't really have to do anything to the orig recipe, I just always add my own touches.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I'd never been able to get biscuits "just right" always wanted to be too crumbly and to fall apart. This recipe was a lifesaver. Nice texture and flavor for jam and honey, or as I like to do, I add garlic and onion powder with some ital. seasoning to use as Breakfast biscuits to sandwich sausage or bacon and eggs.

Soda Cracker Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I had just finished making the JIF buckeyes (peanut butter balls) and had some leftover melted chocolate that I didn't want to waste, so I added more chocolate, remelted it all and after the toffee had baked I just poured and spread the melted chocolate over it and sprinkled with chopped almonds. It turned out great and I think maybe it was easier using already tempered(melted) chocolate. Good recipe tho and nice flavor.

JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
As my mom always did, I dipped my pb balls to completely cover them using two toothpicks held just slightly apart so the balls wouldn't just "spin" while I dipped them. Placed on waxed paper lined cookie sheets and immediately sprinkled either sweetened coconut(my boyfriend's favorite), colored sprinkles, or chopped walnuts on them. The chocolate starts to set up quickly so sprinkle as soon as each is dipped.

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I guess I'm gonna be considered a "pith on" reviewer. I left it on, did the (3) 5 min par boils, rinsing and redoing with cold water each time. Then as some others suggested I made a triple batch of simple syrup and put my peels in, brought to boil over med heat then just reduced it a bit to slow simmer/light boil, for 45 min. I made the grapefruit peels with pink grapefruit, they looked very pretty after the first boil. A beautiful pinkish coral color and kept the color through the processing. I pulsed 2 cups of reg white sugar to make superfine to shake in when just tacky enough to hold the sugar. Nice flavor, still "grapefruity" a bit of tang like I wanted them.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
OMG after making peanut butter buckeyes last night, late, late into the night :) I just wanted a no brainer, easy fast candy to do next on my list for my Christmas candies. I preheated my oven while unwrapping the rolos, slid my pretzels into the oven to warm them then stuck my rolos on and put a pecan half on top, then back into oven for the 3 min. Brought them out, recentered my pecans while pushing them into the rolos and they turned out great. Start to finish was even less than the ready time stated. Tip here: to cut some of the cost, buy the 3oz pkg of smaller pecan halves in the baking aisle. Its around $2.50 and I'll have enough for approx 3 batches of these candies from that small bag. Rolos big bags have about 50 pieces for around $3.00. Altogether, nice easy fun delicious candy

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
No pepper in mine either.I really love this recipe though. It's quick and simple, and using the drinking glass as dip container worked really well. I like my cornmeal with honey, so I decreased the sugar by a few tablespoons and added the honey to the mix. Will never ever buy frozen again. Why would you if in the same amount of time you can have fresh homemade ones that taste as good as these do. Boyfriend raved, I raved. Wonderful!!!! ***here's a fun "plus" to this recipe. If you have leftover batter (since I only do 1 pkg of dogs for the two of us). Drop the batter by tablespoons into the hot oil watch closely, turn over when tanned on one side, tan on other.... shake these little puppies in powdered sugar or cinn/sugar to coat after draining. Not bad dessert donuts!**** I've made these like above for awhile now, found myself without honey, decided to add 2T food grade coconut oil(didn't melt it, just mixed with fork with the flour,cornmeal and b.soda before adding egg and milk) This made the coating have a very slight coconut flavor which was nice, but the real benefit was that the coating was crisper and lighter. I'll be doing this again I think.

Tortillas I

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Ok, I made these this morning. I preheated the oven to 200 then turned it off when i started putting finished wraps in to keep warm and used a 9in glass covered casserole dish instead of a towel and served right from that. This is a good, simple recipe. Easy to follow. I made my dough, then just sprinkled flour over it right in bowl to knead till elastic and smooth, then just poured about 3t olive oil over it ,turned it a couple times to coat then covered and let rest as directed. Didnt need so much time in skillet, maybe about a min the first side and 30 sec or so on other. Here's my trick though, instead of risking even more flour to roll out, which i thought maybe would make them tough, I flattened my dough balls onto waxed paper, folded it over it, then rolled it out. The oil on the balls help to peel it off paper easily. Though you will have to replace the paper every couple of wraps, as the paper gets "worn" from the rolling and will stick . After making these a couple of times, I decided to add a touch of zing to mine, a couple of shakes of onion powder added to the flour mix adds a very nice touch without being overwhelming. I never buy them in a store now, compared to these, the packaged ones in the bread aisle are like trying to swallow a wool blanket. Happy eating!

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I first made this recipe in early November,2010 and its so good I've made it many times since. This is a wonderful "base recipe" too, because you can add anything from grated orange peel to mini chocolate chips and it stays to its uniform yumminess. Now I did make one significant change to the recipe, this may help those having problems with the overwhelming "spice, or CLOVE" taste. I never ever just use cloves as they are an extremely sharp tasting spice. I substituted 2 teaspoons of PUMPKIN PIE SPICE for the sum of the nutmeg,clove, cinnamon combination stated in recipe. This gives it a more mellow pumpkin pie type flavor and makes it more appetizing to people who don't really care for a full out clove taste. Hope this helps some people with this excellant recipe. Happy Eating!

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Have a Bread machine or not, this is hands down the best, best, best cinnamon roll recipe out there. These are every bit as good as bakery rolls (if not better). I'm admittedly, a recipe tweeker, so here's what I tweeked. instead of the dry milk, I used 1/4 c buttermilk Used a full packet of active dry yeast, its a bit more than called for I used leftover whipped topping instead of the icecream and added 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to pan syrup and I upped the amount of cinnamon for filling to 2 T cause i like alot of cinnamon I frosted mine, with a mixture of 2cups powdered sugar, 3 T marg, 3 T cream cheese, and 2T pecan pancake syrup (chocolate milk syrup would work too) oh man u cant go wrong even if u tweek like me. these rolls are high, and light and have just the most Perfect texture. Thanks so much for a great recipe
