Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Oh my, people....these are exceptional! We live in Belize and have too many coconuts. We needed a way to use some of them up. We doubled the recipe, increased the coconut to 1 1/2 c. and reduced the chocolate chips so we could taste the coconut more. They smelled so good, that the neighbors actually came over while they were baking! We cut them into very small pieces since they are sweet and there are plenty left over for tomorrow. Thank you Myrtis for this fabulous recipe! Happy eating!

Mom's Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
I hate to leave a bad review but I just made 2 batches of these and neither of them rose well at all. I thought the first was a fluke, so i tried again. The only thing I did differently was to double the batch both times. I did everything else exactly as the recipe stated. Really wish these would have worked out.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I love these! I tripled the recipe and it made a baker's dozen. I figured these would be great and they were! With sunny-side up eggs, these made a fabulous meal my hubby and kids loved! There are 11 of us and everyone wanted 2nds so next time I will have to make multiple triple batches. I used a pampered chef muffin pan and one corelle wear tea cup to bake these in, and both methods were great. One note though, they did take about 10 minutes longer to bake than stated but that could simply be an oven difference. Thanks!

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Wow! This is delicious! I tripled the recipe for my family (there are 11 of us) and added some okra because I had it around and it needed to be used. I omitted the beef completely and thought I might miss the flavor but I was SO wrong! It is Fabulous without any meat. I did add alittle chicken boullion to assist the flavor and I ground fresh nutmeg which was stronger but great. There's lots of chopping involved but with 5 of us it only took 15 minutes to prep and put into the pot. Thanks for a great recipe! We will be eating this regularly!

Whole Egg Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This recipe is FAB! Just finished up 2 different batches. I tried it 1st in my KitchenAid food processor and failed miserably. It never would mix correctly but my KA only has 1 speed...SO....I grabbed a quart canning jar and dumped all but the oil in and mixed for 20 sec. Then I poured in ALL the oil at once. I started at the bottom on high speed. Instantly, I saw the makings of mayonnaise! Lifting slowly, I blended until I felt it was thick enough and was holding its own form. The 1st batch i made was all veggie oil. Veggie oil is 100% soybean oil and pretty bad for men so the 2nd batch I made was 1/2 Coconut oil and 1/2 Veggie oil. The first batch tasted like store bought but the second was much more exotic. It will be great in chocolate cake!! I popped the top of the canning jar on and now there is NO MESS to clean up! How much do you love that?! It's great that there is NO waste in this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Wow!! With 9 kids, an inexpensive meal is hard to do but this recipe made it easy and delicious! Hubby said, "This was better than any Turkey dinner"! I used two 6 lb. chickens and adjusted the recipe to accommodate the weight. My chickens cooked alittle faster than stated and I did remove them from the oven at 170 degrees and let them sit and finish cooking to 180. The meat was juicy and tender. All around it was a very successful dinner!

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Made this last night and it was a hit!! I tripled the recipe to have enough for our family of 9 and it worked out very well. I mixed 3/4 tsp of pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, and paprika and seasoned the meat with it. I also added extra onion powder and garlic salt to the flour along with the pepper. I used a stick of butter and added olive oil as needed during frying. The key is to keep the temp high enough to fry but low enough to keep from burning the drippings. Depending on your stove you may need to adjust the heat up and down as you cook. Whisk the flour into the drippings and cook for 2-3 mins. or until it smells nutty and it a pretty brown color. My kids range from 2 - 13 and they loved the gravy. It is well worth the effort! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This was a simple and easy recipe! I used half butter and half shortening to get the feel I wanted and whipped it for 20 min. in a Kitchenaid mixer. I added 1 1/2 tsp. of CLEAR butter extract and I added an extra 1/2 tsp of CLEAR vanilla for an awesome taste. The frosting does leave just the slightest greasy feeling in your mouth. Next time, I will do a 3/4 butter 1/4 shortening mix to see if it helps with the greasy feel. This frosting beats any bakery or store bought frosting for taste! I used it to make a 6 car train cake for my 3 yr. old. The frosting colored well (I used Americolor gels) and held it's shape fairly well. After I frosted the "cars", I added another 1/2 cup of sugar to stiffen up the frosting so I could pipe the decorations on the train. I felt I could have added alittle more in hindsight and may try that next time as well. I used this frosting as "glue" to hold the various items on the train and it performed quite well. All in all, anyone could make this recipe and do splendidly with it! Try this one; you won't regret it!!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I made this for the first time for our Superbowl Party and it was outstanding!!! With a few picky adults, and 14 children running around I was worried about it being too spicy so I did add the chile peppers but omitted the Tabasco and Cheyenne pepper. I checked it as it cooked and the spice was perfect! We live in a small town and 1 lb. of italian sausage was not available so I substituted with a pound of regular sausage. I also added 4 cups of beef broth to it b/c my hubby prefers more "soup" to his chili. Served it up with sharp cheddar, real sour cream, and corn chips. I was also concerned about this making enough for our group of 20 but rest assured you will have plenty! As it was, this "10 serving" recipe made a full stockpot of the best chili. All our guests raved about how fantastic it was and I had to make copies of the recipe to give out before the game even started!! Kudos!!!!

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
What an AWESOME recipe! I have 8 children so I do double this up and it still turns out perfectly! I like lots of garlic and onion so I shake in more of this as well as some brown sugar if the BBQ sauce isn't sweet enough. Once I drain and shred, I put it back in the cooker. I always drain the cooking liquid off when I take out the roasts to shred them and add new BBQ sauce at that point. I have left this to simmer for hours and it only gets better!! My family likes it on good stiff buns so it soaks up lots of the BBQ sauce. The boys will add a thick slice of cheddar cheese to theirs for a different taste, especially if they think it is too sweet. Absolutely a no-brainer on this one!!

Skillet Fried Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
This is the second time I have made this recipe. I make it exactly as stated and it comes out great!! I have 8 children ranging from 1-16 and they ALL love it!! Now that's an accomplishment!! It is easy to cook and goes great with a simple potato or green bean casserole. I trimmed my bacon just slightly this time to decrease some of the fat and couldn't tell a difference!
