Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
I have a newer GE Advantium microwave and added the peanuts in after the first 2 min. total cooking time for the first go around was 6 mins. Second go around was 2 mins. I did take the advice of others here and kept a glass of cold water ready to teste for the hard crack stage and it worked like a charm! Also I used the Reynolds quick release foil..WOW! This stuff is amazing. I diddnt have to spray and wasnt left with a sticky mess. The Peanut Brittle was a hit! Everyone loved it! EDIT:12/12/10: Made the mistake of using roasted peanuts in my new micro. It may be the times need to be re adjusted but it burned bad. So I am going to use raw peanuts next time and hopefully won't get the burned taste. Still a 5 star recipe!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
This was yummy and so easy! My kids and I had fun making these. I have never heard of crackers used in candy before but figured all these reviewers can't be wrong! I made a few batches, some with semi sweet chocolate chips and some with milk chocolate chips, I diddnt have dark brown sugar and used golden brown sugar and they came out great. Thanks for a keeper.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I have been brining for a few years now. I have also added Brown sugar to the water as well as candied ginger and garlic. The best way to brine a very large turkey if you dont have a pot big enough and to be sure it is fully submerged is to buy a 5 gallon paint bucket and clean it out real well, you can get this cheap at Home Depot or Lowes. submerge it and be sure to put a heavy plate on top to keep it from bobbing up. you can take a rack out of your fridge, and slide it in. Or some people just use an ice chest. The meat is so flavorful!

Maple Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
The turkey did come out wonderful. Very moist.I am changing this review to give it 4 stars for the turkey ONLY. The gravy was not a favorite for us. The gravy was very, very, sweet. I had 2 pkgs of McCormick turkey gravy on hand that I made and added to it, and still very sweet. So I added some white wine to it. That did take some of the sweetness away, but still left it very sweet. If I do make this turkey recipe again, which I probably will. I would not use the drippings for the gravy. I would use store bought or make some ahead of time.

Cherry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
Overall, this was incredibly easy to make. I threw it together in no time and let it chill overnight. The lemon juice in my opinion helps to balance out the sweetness of the condensed milk. This was more of a cherry cheese pie than a real cheesecake. But a nice dessert when I served it on Thanksgiving to the non pumpkin pie fans. I would make it again. I also took the pie out in the morning and topped with the cherry pie filling all over then put it back in the fridge to help set it for a few hours. This way the pie filling isnt oozing everywhere.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
This is a perfect recipe for fudge I have been using for a few years now. Be sure to buy a good quality of Chocolate, or else you get a waxy feel to it. This beats all the evap milk,eaglebrand, etc recipes I have tried. And makes great gifts when packaged with some pretty colored plastic wrap and ribbon.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
The aroma of this soup is wonderful. I used a hambone leftover from christmas and some extra ham. I also used fresh garlic and some garlic powder. I had only fresh Italian (flat leaf) so I used that instead of the dried. Also I had Better than Boullion paste I substituted for the cube. Everything came out wonderful and delish! It wasnt to thick or to thin, just perfect. I like to add lots and lots of fresh ground black pepper to mine.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
First let me say this tastes great. We do not like frosting and this was perfect as far as taste. I substituted pure lemon extract for the almond and came out yummy. Dries quickly.I had to give this 3 stars because you do have to keep adding more milk. I added in tsp increments. Also we had to make several batches to glaze all the sugar cookies we made and the icing kept drying out. This could be due to the dry climate I live in.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I made this tonight. I had 5 medium ripe bananas and 1 large regular banana on hand. This came out wonderful! I was able to get 3 lg loaves and 4 mini loaves. I just bought the disposable foil loaf pans from Walmart and set them on a cookie sheet since they are kind of flimsy. I did lightly spray PAM into the pans before I did the cinnamon sugar coating. This is better than my mother in laws recipe.And I will bake this from now on. I was concerned with what another reviewer said about "to much sour cream" but honestly It diddnt taste at all tangy to me. Just delish! I do like more of a banana flavor, but that could be because my 1 banana wasnt fully ripe. I guess you could always throw in some banana extract or an extra small ripe banana. I plan on giving my mini loaves out to the neighbors. Thanks for a great recipe.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I really wanted to like this recipe and give it 5 stars after reading all the rave reviews. However, it was just o.k. I will stick to making my pineapple,cherry and brown sugar glaze. I was hoping this would give me the taste and texture of the Original Honeybaked Ham, but it diddnt.The glaze was flavorful, but I found it to be bothersome basting so much and it diddnt make that much of an impact on me. Was'nt bad by any means but was'nt spectacular either.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Excellent recipe! I am not a glazed carrot fan and found myself and guests going back for seconds. The balsamic vinegar balances out the sweetness of the brownsugar nicely. I used equal portions of the two with great results. I also lightly tossed the carrots in olive oil and sea salt and roasted them in a 425 oven for 25 min. Then tossed them in the pan with some added butter with the brown sugar and vinegar..mmm also I threw in a cpl tsp of orange juice. I had a lot of carrots so I made extra glaze. These were a nice side dish,and different from the very sweet candied carrots. We loved them!

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: May 16, 2007
I doubled this recipe,and I had to use seasoned rice vinegar because thats all I had on hand. Also I diddnt have any dry mustard so substituted a sweet hot mustard that was in my fridge. This is a nice basic recipe on its own or if you want to change it up it is adaptable. I also have used half brown sugar and half molasses, and half chili sauce half ketchup...either way it always comes out wonderful.

Amazing Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
Very rarely do I give something 5 stars. This was fantastic! I did however skip the grill due to time. I made a batch of sauce and threw it in the crockpot with half a bottle of pumpkin ale. The meat was so tender! Then I like to set the glaze, so I put them under the broiler for a few minutes to set the glaze and everybody loved them. I went out and stocked up on baby back ribs to make for my company when they arrive in a few weeks! Thanks for the great recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
I followed the other reviews here and added half a pkt of onion soup mix,( I diddnt omit the onion entirely, I used maybe a 1/4 cup of it)and dbled the condensed soup. Next time I won't double that because we had so much sauce left over. I diddnt add water,I used half a can of wine instead, and sauteed a jar of mushrooms I had on hand and threw them the last hour of cooking. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste,and some garlic, and a tsp. of boullion paste. I used sliced/cubed chuck steak, because it was on sale and I seasoned it with garlic salt and pepper and shook it in flour and seared it in the skillet for a bit before adding it to the crockpot. The meat was so tender and delicious. I did add extra pepper to the sauce. I did use 4 oz of cream cheese, I even cubed it and there were still some little lumps in the sauce. I added sour cream as well. I enjoyed it and the family liked it too.

Slow Cooker Wieners in Wiener BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
sorry, we diddnt care for these. Maybe we overcooked them in the crockpot, not sure. Since overcooking in the crock is hard to do. But the taste just diddnt agree with us.
