Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
These were soft (I did not flatten with a fork), but pretty flavorless cookies. Need more brown sugar and cinnamon. Disappointed, especially since I doubled the recipe!

Pumpkin Roll II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Easy and good as is. I would like a "spicier" flavor, though. Next time I will add more cinnamon, a bit of nutmeg, and ground cloves.

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I used this as my pudding recipe for banana pudding. I didn't have any trouble with lumps in the pudding, but I tempered the egg very slowly and whisked constantly during the entire cook time. Overall, it took me about 45 minutes to make the pudding, but I was cooking it very slowly so it would not scorch or separate. Overall, the pudding has a good flavor and it seems thick enough to set. The only thing that I changed was I used 1/4 c. half and half because I had it in my fridge and needed to use it before it spoiled. Next time, however, I think I will use some brown sugar along with the white for added "depth."

Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Delicious! You must work the egg in slowly, whisking constantly. I used 2 cups 1% milk and 1 cup evaporated milk. Also, a pinch of cayanne and nutmeg.

Creamy Shrimp and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
As others have said, a very good "base" recipe. I start the soup with 1/2 c. margarine, in which I saute the onion (I actually use frozen seasoning blend-onion, celery, peppers) and 2 cloves wirth of chopped garlic. Once softened, I sprinkle with about 2T. flou, and then break it with about 3/4c milk. In go the soups, chicken broth, milk, spices and corn. I add about a tsp. of crab and shrimp boil and, if I want the soup to be a bit heartier, I put in diced potatoes. Let them slow cook in the soup and stir frequently. Once the potatoes have softened, I add the shrimp. They only need to be cooked about 5-7 minutes. Overcooked shrimp are yucky! It only takes me about 40 minutes to cook and turn out much better. Not as "canned" tasting. Oh, and cut some green onions in right before serving!
