Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Super easy, I first made this as a trial run for a dinner party. Then as I have been asked to make them more often I started reading through all the reveiws of all the recipes (hundereds!!) After reading, this is what I found out... All the cream puff recipes have the same ingredients and measurements. The difference is the baking directions. I did find a review (by Magique) that said that Cream puffs need a high temperature so they will rise quickly and leave a hollow center and to set the shape of the shells. Then they need a lower temperature to continue baking, which allows the insides to dry out. So, following hers and several others suggestions I started with 450 degrees for 10 minutes, reduced oven to 350 degrees (too low causes the egg or butter not to bake right) and continued to bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and sound hollow when tapped. Remove puffs to wire racks to cool. Immediately cut a slit in each for steam to escape (or poke a hole a few minutes before removing from oven, I’ve done both ways, and either way works fine.) I have never had to “scoop out” soggy dough. I also have never had too leave in the oven to prevent falling. Once cooled, I just pipe in some filling (ziplock baggie works great) If I don’t have pudding on hand, sprayed reddi whip into puff, and topped with chocolate, kids loved them. They are so wonderful, elegant and easy!!! Also, I sometimes cut the recipe down to 1/4 (so only one egg, "5 servings") and get 6 nice sized p

Dry Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
not sure how to quite rate this, as it was a base to what I actually made... I used the dried parsley, garlic salt, onion salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried dill weed but subbed 1/2 cup dried buttermilk for saltines. also used teaspoons instead of cups for smaller batch. was a good base though.

Egg Noodle Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Quick, easy and yummy. I also cooked it in the oven and instead of layering, I mixed the noodles, meat, sauce together and put half of it into a 9 x 13 casserole dish. (I had added onion and some italian seasoning to the beef) Then, I had some provolone cheese and sprinkled mozz. cheese on top. Then layered the rest of the meat, sauce and noodle mixture on top of that. I topped that with more mozz. and parm. cheese. (I'm not a fan of processed cheese) I baked at 350 for about 1/2 hour - to melt the cheese and warm it through. *I omitted the butter completly and probably used a little more sauce than called for.

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Excellent and easy, even my kids liked it. I try and use as many fresh ingrediants as possible to offset the canned. I start by melting the butter, then adding the fresh garlic and I use olive oil. Then I add a little lemon zest and fresh squeezed lemon along with the juice from the clams. I omit the basil, but add fresh parsley and a little pepper. When noodles are al dente, add the Whole Baby Clams (not minced) and then add drained noodles. Toss together over heat and top with lots of fresh parmesan. Yummy!

cooked chicken in crockpot with water. Used this broth for the rice. Added chedder cheese and milk to shredded chicken along with some taco seasoning. Sauted onions with oil. Added half the onions to shredded chicken. added 1 1/2 cups of rice and browned. Added chicken broth and a little extra water to equal 2 cups. added a little salsa and left un covered to be done quicker. Added chicken mixture to tortillas and bakes as directed. YUM!

Pan de Muertos (Mexican Bread of the Dead)

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
easy and yummy. I actually brought the recipe down to 8, just to try it and it worked out wonderful. Loved the glaze and sugar topping, omitted the anise (I didn't have any) but thought the orange added a nice flavor. Much like a cinnamon roll with a different flavor.

Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
yummy! Used stand mixer, and about 4 oz. of cream cheese and 4 cups of sugar. Mixed food coloring in before sugar and got a nice even color. We rolled them and then cut them like in the picture, but excited about all kinds of ways to form them.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
YUMMY! Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Followed suggestions and baked for 8 minutes, came out perfect! Refridgerated for a little bit to make it a little easier to work with. If is was a little to dry I added a splash of milk - JUST a splash. Everyone loves them!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
only used 6 eggs, and followed reviews and flipped half way. Think if I had diced the bread it would have been even better. Turned out pretty good though, will make again.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Yummy! I actually subbed squash for the pumpkin (to use it up) but kept everything else the same. Loved the apple chunks, and while it was a bit oversweet, loved the streusel topping. May decrease the sugar next time and keep the topping.
