China Lake Barbequed Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
Great! I've been using this recipe for a few years now and always get rave reviews. It's great on any type of meat especially chicken. I use fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, and low sodium soy sauce.

Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I gave this 3 stars because I followed the other reviewers advice and made some changes. I used 16oz of cream cheese, 6 green onions instead of a regular onion,2 cloves of garlic minced instead of garlic powder, 3(6 oz.) cans of crabmeat, and added 1 cup of sour cream, 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar, and 2 tsp. of Old Bay seasoning. I just put it all in a 2qt crock pot and let it cook for several hours. It was fantastic!! Everyone loved it. One of my coworkers said she doesn't like crab dips, but she loved this one!

Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I only gave this 3 stars because it's a little bland as is. I made a few changes and now it's a 5 star recipe. I used a stick of softened butter and a 3/4 cup of shortening instead of the 1-1/4 cups of shortening. I also increased the salt to 1-1/2 tsp. This is perfect for meat pies or dessert pies.

Caramels I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Great recipe. I make this all the time.I used half white and half brown sugar. I also used 2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp. of butter flavor. I cooked mine on medium heat, stirring often until it started to boil, then added the remaining cream and left it alone until it reached 248 degrees. This is a good temp for caramel apples. I'd probably cook it until it reached at least 255 degrees for caramels, though.

Rocky Road Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
Good, but I had problems with the caramel and toppings sliding off the apples, too. I found this tip on the internet that says to melt the caramel in a 4 cup glass measuring cup in the microwave, then let it cool to about 170 degrees. Place a folded dish towel in a skillet and place the glass measuring cup on top of the towel, place the skillet on a burner set on low. This keeps it at the correct temperature while dipping. Dip an apple, turn in upside down for a few seconds to help set the caramel. Immediately roll it in the toppings. Works great!

Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
This caramel has really good flavor. I added 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of butter flavor instead of the 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I cooked it until it reached 250 degrees. This is good for making caramel apples, which is what I wanted it for. I had some left over and just poured it into a pan sprayed with cooking spray. It was still a little too soft for individual caramels. I will try cooking it until it reaches about 260-265 degrees for just caramels. Great recipe!

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
THIS IS THE CREAMIEST! I DID MAKE A FEW CHANGES. I USED A STICK OF BUTTER WITH THE 1 1/2 CUPS OF CRUMBS TO MAKE THE CRUST, ELIMINATED THE SUGAR, AND PREBAKED IT FOR 10 MINUTES AT 325 DEGREES. I THEN TURNED THE OVEN DOWN TO 200 DEGREES. I ALSO ADDED 2TB OF VANILLA TO THE FILLING. I SLOW BAKED IT AT 200 DEGREES OVERNIGHT FOR 7 1/2 HOURS. IT WAS THE CREAMIEST CHEESECAKE I'VE EVER EATEN. I TOPPED IT WITH THE HOT FUDGE SAUCE RECIPE FOUND ON THE INSIDE OF THE NESTLE'S PREMELTED CHOCOLATE(CHOCOBAKE)BOX. EXCELLANT!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2005
I thought this was a good recipe. I melted the caramels with 3Tbs of canned milk over low heat and let it cool while I mixed up the cookie batter. I also added a 3oz pack of chocolate pudding to the recipe. I then just scooped out about a tsp of the caramel and rolled it into a ball and rapped the cookie dough around it. This keeps the caramel a good gooey consistency after they are cooled. I make fairly large cookies, so I use about 2 heaping Tbs of dough per cookie and use a spoon to put a small indentation in the dough and place the caramel in the center and push the dough up around it. The caramel doesn't come out of the cookie then.
