Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
Very easy recipe to make! I used 2 c confectioners sugar. I did use the parchment paper and it worked well. I mixed 1 T of peanut butter in with the melted chocolate. Cut in to small pieces as it is rich. Tastes like a peanut butter cup. This was popular and enjoyed by all. Thanks to previous reviews before I made it.-The Entertaining Hen

Broccoli-Stuffed Sole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Because we don't care for sole, I stuffed basa with the broccoli. I steamed some broccoli and then cooked a pkg of wild rice with mushrooms. Used some wasabi arugula and chopped that up.Sauteed some onion and mushroom, chopped up the broccoli heads and mixed everything together. Because Basa is a mild fish, you need stronger flavors. Next time I would add additional seasoning such as a bit of chipotle. Friends enjoyed it. The next time I made it used sole, sauteed diced mushrooms, onion, garlic. Didn't use cream cheese. Steamed and cut up in to small pieces fresh broccoli. Used the wild rice/mushroom rice. Seasoned the fish first. Melted butter, squeezed fresh lemon and then sauteed additional diced onions and garlic and poured all on top. This was enjoyed by family and friends!

Brunch Egg Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Delicious! I made it the night before. I put a mixture of cheddar/mozarella and some swiss cheese. I used a combination of fresh and dried (reconstituted) mushrooms, sauted with the onions, garlic, red pepper. I topped it with diced green onions and chopped fresh parsley before placing in the oven. It was still a bit moist in the middle at 40 min, so left it in for approx 5 more min. DELICIOUS! You could definitely add some heat (chopped jalapeno) if you like. Definitely will make for large gatherings.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
This is fantastic! Light and delicious. I used unsweetened flaked coconut. The dipping sauce is wonderful too. You can make it zestier or sweeter, depending on your taste. Takes about 2-3 min per side in our deep fryer at 345 degrees. Made a sauce also using fresh mango, mustard and a capful of cider vinegar (in the food processor). Afterwards added some freshly cracked pepper. Delicious. I use the beer batter for frying other fish (ie perch) by dipping in the flour, the beer batter and then panko bread crumbs. Wonderful!

Creamy Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Instead of using dried onion and onion salt, I used finely diced fresh red onion and garlic powder. I also added some black pepper, finely diced parsley, some smoked paprika and some dried tarragon. I won't add tarragon next time as it over powers the flavors. It's wonderful served on a slice of ciabatta baguette! It's still a recipe that you can play with a bit. (I may also add some grated parmesan or cheddar next time)

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I had a craving for some really good caramel corn. This is cracker jacks, kicked up a notch! (Even our dog Spanky loves the little bits he is allowed). The first time, I made it with honey roasted nuts and I cooked it in a large roasting pan, in order to mix it easily. Next time, I'll use salted roasted nuts and perhaps add a touch of cayenne. (Remember to take out the unpopped kernels first so that you don't have any one breaking any teeth) REALLY GOOD

Sunday Brunch Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
In a 9 x 14 greased lasagna pan, I used 8 eggs and tried it with bison bacon, swiss cheese slice and grated some gouda in with the parmesan.I placed a round slice of onion on top of the swiss cheese so that the egg would not slide off as easily. The 1 c of whipping cream was sufficient for this batch. This is a recipe that one can play with a bit in terms of using a variety of cheeses (ementhal, asiago, gouda... and ham instead of back bacon). I served it on toast and not only did it look fantastic, but tasted fantastic! I was asked for the recipe immediately. Will definitely recommend this one! (What I had done was set it up an hour earlier and had the oven timer set so that company could slowly wake up and have a coffee first) Enjoy!

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Good! Company enjoyed it (see what I will adjust next time at the end) I parboiled the sliced potatoes for several minutes. I added diced garlic and some mozza/edam cheese to the sauce. I seasoned the potatoes before adding the sauce to each layer (four layers) I added some Hormel cooked real bacon bits to the top of the layer afer adding sauce to the third layer. Top layer, I added some grated cheese to the sauce. NEXT TIME: Because I prefer a stronger cheese taste, I will use a stronger cheese in either the sauce, or add it to one layer. This is quite nice and filling. I used a large lasagna pan and there was very little left. Enjoy!

Peking Duck

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I have never made peking duck; however i tried it when friends and family came over (guinea pigs). I didn't have a steamer but I had a roasting pan with holes on top as well as a rack that went with it on top. I poked holes in the duck with the fork after I had it sit with the spice marinade overnight. I did place green onions and a chopped garlic clove in the cavity. I placed water in the bottom of the pan and cooked with foil cover at 375 degrees in convection oven for an hour. I drained the fat and then placed it back on the rack with foil. At this point I basted it with the soy/honey every half hour. (still returned foil on top) I tried to turn up to 475 but smoking and too hot. Turned it down to 400 and continued cooking, basting with the sauce every 20 minutes. It did get a bit darker and not too fatty. I turned on broiler for about 5-10 minutes to make skin crispier. Delicious. Friend who doesn't like duck and had tried peking duck before truly enjoyed it. I doubled the sauce recipe but used plum sauce instead of jam and used mango chutney (did chop up the bigger chunks). Delicious. First time making duck. Definitely a hit. Will make again. Took approximately 2 1/2 hours to cook.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Delicious! Used this while camping. Changes I made: used cut up dried strawberries instead of raisins; used Hormel's bacon 1/2-1 c instead of cooking bacon; added chopped carrots; added diced colored peppers; added 1 T vinegar and a shot of chili peppers to the dressing. DELICIOUS!

German Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
I found this recipe delicious! My husband Al had requested a German Chocolate cake recipe for his birthday. I made the cake plus another batch of muffins. The only change I would make at this time is to cut down the sugar slightly. I cut down the baking time by about 5-10 minutes because I was using the convection feature on my oven. Also used silicone pans. No problems there. Made a filling with whipping cream, pudding and nuts for the cake and used a chocolate frosting from another recipe. Comments when I passed out the muffins were: delicious! Rate 4.5

Chocolate Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
Very good and moist! I'm a "scratch" baker and thought it would taste like a boxed recipe but surprisingly good! I cut down the sugar a bit for the glaze but excellent! gobbled up. Lots of ideas for variations.
