English Toffee

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Second time around for me with this recipe. The first time it separated and I hadn't read the reviews to know there is a remedy for this. drained off the top and the bottom stuff made good toffee. I just finished my second batch. First I calibrated my candy thermometer, it was about 15 degrees low, ok. Took it slow and easy. I started getting concerned when it began to boil, I thought the froth on top was coming over and got another pan ready, not needed. Finally it began to turn color about 225 degrees. Thermometer 15 degrees low? finally about 235 I felt it would be burning if I didn't get it out of there. I had a cup of ice water with me to test it, and it was granulated. Well, I am forging ahead, I may have to try it again. I had to laugh at some of the superstitions, like stirring it only clockwise and only making it in dry humidity. I live in Colorado, 20% is a humid day here.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
made as written, it kills me when people don't follow the recipe and rate it lower. The seasonings were great. I had a two pound roast so I halved the seasonings, I wish I had doubled them. In the crock pot for about 7 hours. I stuck it in the oven for 20 minutes, that was a mistake... it came out dry, not crisp. I will do this recipe again with double the seasonings. Cinnamon is widely used in Mexican cooking, I wouldn't delete it from the recipe based on the reviews here from people who didn't like it. Try it first.

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
I took the other reviewer's advice and added my own soy to taste. The next time I make it I will increase the crushed red pepper, (maybe add 1/4 tsp ground red pepper along with crushed...) I also think chunky peanut butter would be good...
