Frijoles III

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
I suggest you cook the beans the night before, drain and refrigerate. I also refried the beans by melting lard (the more lard the tastier) and adding salt to taste, in a dutch oven. Add the beans 1/3 at a time and mash with the lard until all is hot and bubbling. Lower the heat and top with cheddar or Mexican cheese. This works great as a dip with tortilla chips too.

Blueberry Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I made this recipe for a crowd of veterans as a breakfast treat. It was gone immediately. Instead of blueberries, I used frozen (thawed) strawberries. VERY GOOD!

Rum Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
An easy and yummy recipe. I used butter and sugar (instead of flour) to coat pan to prevent sticking. I also used a 5 oz. pudding mix as opposed to a 3.5 oz. pkg. This was a real hit at the birthday party for a friend!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
Easy and delicious recipe. I substituted slivered almonds for the pecans and didn't have allspice so I used pumpkin pie spice instead. It was a great hit!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
I made this for Christmas gifts and used 6 mini loaf pans. After the batter was in the pans, I added 2T of Smucker's blackberry or strawberry "Just Fruit" onto the top and worked it into the batter a bit. I baked them all at one time at 325 degrees F for only 40 mins. My friends loved them!

Holiday Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
Great recipe. I did a few variations. I added another 3/4 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of powdered baking cocoa (as my husband is a lover of chocolate, and 1 cup of chopped and toasted, unsalted Macadamia nuts. I cut the cold butter into slices and worked them into the dry mixture using my Kitchen Aid mixer. Just scrap down the sides a couple of times during the process. Once in the jelly roll pan, I rolled the top even and then rolled the nuts into the dough. Marvelous 5 star recipe. Thanks allrecipies!

Luscious Lilikoi Chiffon Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
This recipe is to die for! I made it with frozen lilikoi concentrate (found in frozen fruit juice section) and it was a great hit after our Thanksgiving meal. I live in Hawaii and have lilikoi growing in my yard, but happened to be on the Mainland when I made this recipe. It was lucious and creamy and I wish I had made two pies. Great recipe...mahalo!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Easy and delicious! I made it a little differently. I added all ingredients into a bowl and with hands mixed them all together. I also added one more egg and 1 tablespoon of worchestershire sauce and used 1 pound of pork and one pound of leand ground beef. I suggest you pour off any hot grease before serving. I also used an 8 X 8 glass dish. Yummy. Thanks allrecipies!

Walnut Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This is a good basic recipe. I added 1/2 cup of Miracle Whip and used it for sandwiches. If you do not have Miracle Whip, I suggest you use a tablespoon of sugar to sweeten it up just a bit. Yummy!

Creamy Succotash with Bacon, Thyme and Chives

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I made this for a gathering, doubled the recipe, and it was gobbled up! I made it ahead by a couple of hours and kept it warm in a 170 degree oven until I had to go. Really good comfort food recipe! I was unable to find the baby lima beans, and used regular size, and it worked fine. I also substituted green onions for the chives. Thanks for the great recipe!

Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Great brittle and very easy! I doubled the recipe and sustituted chopped macadamia nuts instead of the peanuts. Terrific! My candy thermometer was broken so I used the "hair method" described in this recipe and it worked just great! Will definitely make again, especially for the holiday gift giving! Thanks!

Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Taste-wise these were terrific! They definitely need to be cooked for at least 14 mins. though, otherwise they are too soft and don't hold their shape.

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I caution everyone to beat the whipped cream only until combined after adding the vanilla and sugar. The first attempt I made, I beat the mixture too long and the milk separated from the butter making a globby mess.

Strawberry Cream Roll

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I caution everyone to beat the whipped cream only until combined after adding the gelatin and sugar. The first attempt I made, I beat the mixture too long and the milk separated from the butter making a globby mess. Also, I would suggest using powdered sugar and not granulated sugar for the filling. It comes out lighter. Great jelly roll recipe.

Cindy's Tasty Wings

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This is an easy and flavorful recipe. To make it spicier, I added 3 Tbls. of Dijon mustard to the preserves and instead of catalina dressing, I used Mae Ploy sauce (found in the Asian dept. of the grocery store). I also baked it at 375 degrees for 45 mins. and then turned it up to 400 degrees for the last 15 minutes. Here in Hawaii, we like it spicey/sweet and hot. Aloha!
