Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Just made this, can't wait to make bread or something for it to go on tomorrow! 1 pint of cream made 12 tbsp. for me, and yielded about 1 1/2 c. buttermilk. First the cream roughly doubled in size (use a large bowl) then after about 5 minutes of beating reached about whipped cream type consistancy. It remained that way about another five minutes, then quickly went to cottage cheese looking and then super dense and flinging milk all around the bowl...when little splatters went on the counter and I thought the motor would go out on my hand mixer, I knew it was butter, lol. Next time I will have cheesecloth handy, as pushing it around with a spoon to squeeze out excess milk got old fast. Other than that, really really easy to do, and hopefully tastes awesome...but how could it not, it's butter!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Soooooo good, and easy. I think I have a new snack, as I always have these ingredients on hand! I followed the 3-second method as suggested by others and used a pressure cooker pan as I wanted to ensure a lid that was tightly on since you need to shake it around. I used sea salt and next time I think I'll just use table salt and sparingly so, but that's just me. Thanks for making a treat I normally only get once a year so easy, and just as delicious!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
I sub the shortening for an equal amount of butter and then bake at 375 for 9 minutes. These are always outstanding, my sister says they are the best snickerdoodles she's ever had. I sorta hate making them as I can feel myself getting fatter...one is NOT enough!

Chili Seasoning Mix II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
As others did, I omitted the flour and as always cut out the salt. This was easy to scale down--for one large pot of chili I scaled it down to 1 serving. It was roughly the same amount of mix as you would get in a premade packet. Wasn't overly spicy but gave my chili a nice kick. My boyfriend noticed the difference and thought this was the best chili I've made. Will definitely be using this from now on, thank you!!!

Almond Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Almost exactly like the side dish served at Applebee's. Easy to recreate, and while it's not an exact replica it's still really very good! Have made it before, and will be making it again this week. It's a keeper.

Cajun Spice Seasoning Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Awesome, easy and great for me as I can nix the salt! Why buy premade mixes, when you can do this in about two minutes!!

Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I've had this in my recipe box forever and finally got to making it. Really, it tasted like any other alfredo sauce. I guess I had it ramped up in my head that it would be just a little more. Still good, but not sure if I'll make again as it didn't wow anyone.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Not sure how authentic this is but it tastes amazing so oh well!! I prefer to use ground chicken instead of cubed chicken breast, as it gives a more uniform texture, is easier to roll the enchiladas, and faster to prepare. I think someone else suggested using corn tortillas, which I did and feel it gave it a better taste and were maybe easier to work with. I ended up needing two packages of corn tortillas, as this made a lot of filling. Really really good, and easy.

Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Zataran's is the closest I've been to cajun cooking, and that said, this is SO MUCH BETTER! This is one of the easiest meals to make, adaptable (I use brown rice and turkey kielbasa) and is really fast. The funny thing is, it's a lot healthier than the boxed versions and it takes the same amount of time. Win, Win. Thanks for a great recipe!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I'm not sure what this was missing, but I definitely like the Jiffy box mix cornbread better than this. I followed the recipe, and it was good, but not as good as the box mix stuff. Not sure if my inability to locate my cast iron skillet is what detracted from this or not. I may try again after trying a few other recipes on here.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Great base recipe to play with. I like to use ground turkey and make the sauce using one can cream of mushroom soup, one can beef broth, two tbsp. ketchup, minced garlic, pepper, and ground mustard. So fantastic with mashed potatoes, and WAY better than ANY frozen meal version--which is the only way I'd had Salisbury Steak prior to this recipe. Never Again!! This also comes together really fast, adding even more to the allure.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
I thought this was way good, and my picky boyfriend liked it all right. May have been better if I hadn't experimented without reading other comments. Not sure if anyone else has said this, but mine came out thin when I used half & half. Next time I'll start the sauce by making a roux to help it thicken. Or hopefully the store won't be out of lowfat cream. I could fully imagine eating this every week, great flavors I thought.

Campbell's Kitchen Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I use Heart Healthy bisquick, frozen stew veggies (corn, green beans, carrots, potatos, lima beans, peas)and one of the healthy request cream of chicken soups that I mix with about 1/2 can of water. My boyfriend always thought it was just meh but I'm persistent since it's a healthy meal...now I season it with garlic powder, black pepper and crushed red pepper for a kick and it's awesome. This is a great base recipe to play with.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
My mom made this all the time when I was a kid, so I was glad to find it on here so I could share it with my boyfriend. As we try to eat healthy I used ground white meat turkey, used cream of chicken soup since he doesn't like mushroom, and spiced it up with some crushed red peppers, black pepper and garlic. It was alright, I might play with it a while since it was so FAST--by the time the oven was preheated, I literally had the meat cooked and everything ready to go in the oven, love that!

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Unlike most other "beer" related recipes I've had, the beer taste didn't totally cook off, which is bad for me as I'm not a fan. I think next time I'll nix the beer and just use my favorite lime salad dressing as a marinade.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Amazing, fantastic...there aren't enough superlatives to describe how great this tastes, especially on top of chocolate cupcakes!!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
The taste was fantastic, but heads up to others, this makes more mix than a standard cake mix (i.e. more than 24 cupcakes in my case) so be prepared for that.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Not only do these taste fantastic, but they don't require refrigeration before baking, which I never have the patience for. They are still great with whole wheat flour and other figure friendly alterations I tend to make.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
These were okay to me, but I think I'll just alter my handed down oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe next time I want an oatmeal cranberry cookie. It just didn't have the specialness I was hoping for, though I can't place why.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
My boyfriend and I had a late night, must have cookies now! attack, and were also low on ingredients...luckily we had enough to make a half batch of these and I think we had two cookies each they were so chocolatey and fantastic! We made no changes aside from halving the recipe, will definitely make again and again.
