Cornish Pastie II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I grew up in Butte,Montana where these are famous. My mother made the 100's of times and I must be nearing the number myself. It seems to me any kind of beef is good to use, but freeze and before all the way thawed, cut into pieces of 1/4 " squares. (If you can find in a local store, Taco meat it is perfect and already cut) These can so good cold with catsup for days. I use 2 # of meat and about the same amount of potatoes (not in pounds, but diced up 1/4 inch) and appears to be the same as meat. In a blender with water, I mix my carrots and onions the strain for at least 1 or more hours. Season with salt, pepper and if you can get it Vegeta which can be found in European stores.

Cinnamon Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
As someone said, they added a little extra flour. I made it with 2.5 cups and worked well. They are like sugar cookies, but with cinnamon and molasses. Definitely will make again. Recipe said it would make 36. I made 78. Came out perfect size. Instead of dropping by teaspoons, I rolled into a log form about the size of a nickle circumference and cut into about 1/2 inch pieces, rolled into a ball, slightly flatten them. Regular size 1/2 sheet baking pan, used parchment paper and baked for 11 min. Definitely will make again. 35 cookies fit perfectly on one sheet.

Caramels I

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
I have now made these for the 5th or 6th. time. Each time , getting better and better. My candy thermometer may be a little off, as 250 is too soft. Good time though to start testing by dropping in cold water and feeling and tasting the consistency. This last time I used about 2 cups of cashew nuts at the last minute, and I don't know how to describe the goodness. This is one that you can honestly say, "You can't eat just one." I STRONGLY suggest that you use parchment paper in your pan. No grease necessary and it will NOT stick. I also use a pastry cutter to cut into pieces. I also use plastic wrap as long as I can fit on the counter, space the pieces along both edges and roll up to center. Cut with scissors, then just tear pieces apart to finish the wrap. As I write this I see it is 242 degrees on thermometer, sorry, it should be slightly above 250. (MY thermometer may be off, but the water testing is the best)

Caramels

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
You know what is like, if you believe Jays old slogan, "Bet you can't eat just one". Definitely 5 star rating. Definitely use large pot. Regular sauce pan will NOT be enough as it does boil up especially at the beginning. 1st time I made these, my candy thermometer measured 250, but caramels were harder than what I expected. My thermometer may be the problem. 2nd. time, I used the cold water method. When a small amount was placed in cold water, I felt the consistency I wanted. I strongly suggest you use both, and when temp rises you can begin to drop into the cold water. I also wrapped in plastic wrap. Using the kitchen table I could wrap about 20 at a time. Just space them far enough apart and spreading them out along the long end of the wrap. I did this on both sides and rolled them toward each other. Then cut with scissors to slice the wrap in half length wise, then for each individual drop. Wrapping does take the most time. 1st. time I had a difficult slicing as it was just too hard. 2nd time much easier. Next time I will cut while still somewhat warm. Please try these. You won't be sorry. I'm sure if you have family members, it won't last long. Hope this all is a great help to you.

Apricot Pineapple Jam

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Apricot/Pineapple was my favorite jam of both my mother and myself. This I had to try. It is superb ! Since I didn't have dried apricots, I used two cans of them. I drained and saved the juice, then added enough orange juice (medication doesn't allow grapefruit juice) to make 1 1/2 cups. I then added only 1 cup of sugar. You MUST try this. Makes about 3-4 cups, and that isn't enough once people start eating it. Better buy extra bread. Superb with toast. I have to make English Muffins tomorrow, to put the icing on the cake. I made this again (2nd. time) this time with dried apricots. Made no difference in my opinion I used 1/2 cup BROWN sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. You can judge if it is sweet enough. If you wish, add more sugar. Again, I used 1/2 cup orange juice. Just excellent. To soften apricots I used about 1 1/2 cups water. The more I read of this recipie, you cannot mess it up. Add the kitchen sink.

Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Excellent, but was afraid to make it exactly as indicated. I added extra oats and extra flour. Guessing, I would think about a total of 1 cup oats and 1 extra cup flour. They are terrific and done in 12 minutes. Excellent. (Next time I'll add the chocolate chips) DEFINITELY a re-do. This made 40 cookies.

Followed recipe exactly. Excellent. Amazed me. Love to do with little kids helping. No mixer needed. Must make again. Although I have not tried it, I am sure this can work with other flavors of cake mix.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
I now have made these muffins twice. Before the end of this week, it will be again. Because I love making bread with much experience, I've made some changes. SOME CHANGES I'VE MADE. I did NOT roll out and then cut with circle. I rolled them into a log and cut with a knife or pastry cutter. 18 slices perfect size. You can press into shape once cut. Easier to get into a log if get a log and cut in half. Then cut into 9 equal pieces. Add a good TABLESPOON Salt instead of the teaspoon in the recipe. Salt is the only ingredient that gives bread its taste. Also, I used NO Cornmeal. Instead I have a pancake eletric grill. Once formed, I place them directly on grill, let rise 1 hour then put on 11 minutes 1st side on 300 F. 10 minutes 2nd. side. I do spray the grill with food release. (Pam) The shortening, I used butter flavor Crisco. What a great thing ! THESE will be gone before breakfast which you made them for. Wow! Please enjoy!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
Upon reading the reviews of people, this is the one I chose to do. I used 4 bananas. This is the very BEST banana bread I ever made. One whole loaf was gone before I turned around. It is almost like Lays Potato chips....you can't eat just one. I chose also to use 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup brown sugar. Turned out to be a great combination.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
I am first of all a long time yeast dough maker and familiar how things should be done. These are excellent! Because I have a dough hook, I put all wet ingredients including the butter (I warmed it with the milk)...then the dry ingredients from smallest amounts to the largest. Dough is slightly wet, and it would not hurt to add a little extra flour, perhaps a 1/2 cup. I also egg washed (beaten egg with 1 TBL water)and brushed them. The rolls shined coming out of the oven. Will make these again. Urge you to give this a try.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Followed recipe pretty close, may have added a little more Zucchini. I also added a cup of walnuts. Superb ! Definitely will make again. Made 2nd. time with other berries. Just as good, but liked the blueberry better. Walnuts really help a lot. Excellent recipe

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 15, 2007
I used walnuts instead of pecans, simply because I didn't have pecans. These are better than I expected. Saved to my recipe box. Highly recommend these.

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Superb ! Wish I could give more than a 5 rating. Needed about 1 hand of flour when forming them into a ball for 2nd. rising. I never tasted a better roll. ! ! ! Nothing like these 'old time' recipies. Strong suggestion, you double the water input. I use butter flavored Crisco as shorting, and so much nicer and lighter. Much nicer roll. Made several times already.
