Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I loved this because I can put it all in the crock pot first thing in the morning, go about my day and have a wonderful completed meal when I return home at 5pm. Few observations: the recipe definitely meant to say 8 hours on LOW, I can't imagine how it would have turned out otherwise, nor can I think of any crock pot recipe that is cooked THAT long on high. Secondly, use beef broth instead of water, it gives that much more flavor. Finally, I took out the roast and let it rest for 20 minutes and threw the cabbage in. It was perfectly cooked in the 20 minutes and not soggy at all.

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I gave this three stars because the recipe should state that it needs to be made in a FLAT 2 quart casserole. The first time I made it, I used a flat casserole and it turned out perfect. My mom made it for christmas dinner this past week, but used a bowl type casserole and baked it for the full amount of time and it was very very runny. It looked like it was cooked through until we served it. Very disappointing the second time, but I will continue making it using my flat dish.

Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
This is exactly how my sister and I grew up with my mom's mac and cheese. I added extra cheese and milk so that it was very creamy and cheesy. Perfect!! And yes, it is a bit grainy. ALL homemade mac and cheese, made with REAL cheese will come out slightly grainy in the end. If you want the smooth kind, then quit making REAL mac and cheese, go buy some velveeta and be happy with your processed version.

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
These are excellent. I have made them 4 times and had success 3 times. DO NOT USE A GLASS PAN. They did not cook through all the way and were very bad. I used a metal 9X11 pan the next 3 times and they turned out perfect. Very moist and chocolately.

Apricot Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This was really delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. The only problem I had was getting the butter to stick to the loin. I patted it dry first, but the butter just continued to come off on my hands, so I mixed the butter with the salt, pepper and herbs and was then able to get it to stick to the pork. I will definitely make this again, we loved the contrast of the sweet preserves against the salty pork.

Candy Cane Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I have been making these cookies since I was a little girl. My family has made a couple changes to the recipe through the years though. First, if you are having problems with the cookies breaking, use regular white sugar instead of the confectioners' in the recipe. It still yields a delicious delicate cookie, but the regular sugar makes a cookie just slightly chewy and alot stronger. I have never had them fall apart after doing this. Secondly, we never coat them in crushed candy canes. I don't feel that peppermint and almond extract really go together. We instead coat our candy canes with confectioners' sugar before serving. It just adds a little something extra and gives a nice presentation. Enjoy!

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
I bought a small turkey to try this recipe because I didn't want to serve something that wasn't perfect on Thanksgiving day and boy am I glad I did!! Yes this turkey was moist, but the flavor and moistness was exactly the same as when you use a turkey oven bag. And I COULDN'T stuff it with this recipe. I'm sticking with what works.

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This recipe was good, however, I think I will stick to Grandma Ople's apple pie from this site and use the crumb topping from this recipe. The apple filling from this had too much of a flour like taste and there are no spices in the recipe?? I added some apple pie spice, but it still needs more flavor.

Pizzelles I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This is a cookie that you either love or hate (depending on how you feel about the licorice flavor). I grew up with these as both my mother and grandmother make them every holiday season and they are hands down my favorite cookie. Definitely use the anise oil though instead of the extract (use half the amt called for), it gives much more of a true flavor.

Parker's Famous Margaritas

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I made this recipe for cinco de mayo and they were a hit. They taste just like the margaritas served in authentic mexican restaurants. I didn't have time to squeeze fresh lime juice, so I bought a bottle of the pre squeezed and they were still excellent. This recipe is going into my family recipe book!

Starkey's Mashed Potato Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This is a great recipe. I use to get something similar at a nearby pizza place when I was in college. I add green onions to mine for extra zing.

Cranberry Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
These are amazing. The only thing I changed is I made homemade cranberry sauce the night before and chilled it overnight. I added the cornstarch and brown sugar just before layering it ontop of the cream cheese layer. Awesome . . .absolutely awesome!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I didn't realize that "chewy and fudgy" meant a raw consistency. Mine were definitely cooked. The toothpick came out clean and the top was nice and firm. But when I served these the next day, not only were they hard, dry and crumbly, they tasted raw and grainy throughout. A terrible texture. I will continue my hunt for the perfect brownie.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I don't know what I did wrong. I used a really high quality chocolate to make them even better and the texture was nothing like described in the other reviews. Mine were cakey and barely tasted like anything. Very disappointing.

Authentic Mexican Breakfast Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This was good, but very messy. Perhaps I will actually fry the tortillas next time until they are crisp before I top them with the ingredients.

Cherry Yum Yum

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
This really does taste like cheesecake bars. I made them for work because I had a package of cream cheese that needed used up. The only subsitution I made was that I used coolwhip rather than the packaged stuff you whip yourself. Excellent, they were gone almost right after I put them out.

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
This was just ok for me. I followed the other suggestions and doubled the peanut butter, halved the curry powder and soy sauce and while the peanut flavor came through nicely, it still tasted too salty to me. I even used low sodium soy sauce. I will probably not make again.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
The sauce for this recipe is phenomenal, however, our ribs were very very chewy and hard. I was hoping for fall off the bone type of ribs. I think it might have been the lower quality of the ribs we purchased, so we will try again with better quality ribs. I also want to find a different method where you do more than just wrap them in foil and bake them, so that the cooking method will also lead to a more succulent rib. . ..still looking.
