Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I made the cupcakes yesterday for a school function. I did not make the icing. I did make some changes. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar for a total of what was called for. I did not have pumpkin spice so I used 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I baked at 325 for about 15- 20 minutes - I never really time my baked goods I just keep an eye on them and take them out when they are done. These turned out vert fluffy like a cupcake should be not dense like a muffin. Very moist and tasty. These were the first to go at the function. I will be keeping this recipe.

Fast Apple Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Very good recipe. I used my own butter crust recipe and this for the filling. I never thought to mix apples and rhubarb. It was very tasty.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This just did not seem sweet enough to us. Next time I will use milk chocolate chips for the top layer, and add more powdered sugar to the bottom layer. Not a bad recipe but it needs a little work.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I read this recipe and reviews and was very skeptical but gave it a try anyway. It was great! I first creamed the brown sugar and butter, then added the egg and then the pudding powder. You really have to stir and stir and stir for the pudding to dissolve and become incorporated. I added 1.5 tsp each of giner and cinnamon. I got exactly 24 gingerbread men using the Wilton comfy grip cutter. My boys loved these and they disapeared before I could get them iced. This is a keeper. Just remember to stir and stir and stir some more with the additions.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This is very very good! I left out the raspberries becuase I do not like them. I did this for a party and it got rave reviews. Learn from my mistakes...do not use corn tortillas! I made a mistake and they were very gross....back to the store I went for flour tortillas.

Egg Roll Wrappers

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
These are good. This was the first time I tried to make egg rolls, so I have nothing to compare them to. Mine ended up a bit too thick towards the end. I needed to thin the batter out some as I went. The taste was very good - filled and plain! If I make egg rolls again I would not hesitate to use this recipe again.

Talerine

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
I did a combination of this and the "Husband's delight" dish also posted here. I added 16 oz of sour cream, and about 5 oz of cream cheese, 1 can of diced tomaotes. I also added bell pepper, minced garlic, and chili powder. I boiled the noodles separately and then mixed everything together and poured into a casserol dish and baked for 30 min. I will use taco seasoning next time. I may also try this with left over chicken one night. The family loved it and scarfed up the left overs right quick. Thahks for sharing.

Husband's Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
I tweaked this a bit, using 1# of lean ground beef, added finely chopped onion, bell pepper, added stewed tomatoes, and a can of diced tomatoes, adding salt, pepper, chili powder (will use taco seasoning next time). I par boiled the bag of egg noodles and drained mixed the sour cream (16 oz) and about 5 oz of cream cheese. I stirred everything together and dumped into a sprayed casserol dish, topped with 2c mexican shredded cheese and baked 30 min. It was a great hit with the family, DH continued picking at it before I could get it put away, and he scarffed the rest down 2 days later (unusual for him). The sour/cream cheeses mixture gives it a tany in the first bite but it definately grows on you and is a great dish! Next time I will add taco seasoning, and more chili powder. May try making it with left over rotersire chicken. Great dish thanks for sharing. I will be adding this to my normal rotation.

Cream Wafers

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
These are great little cookies. I omit the raw egg in the filling. They are light and buttery. They are a bit time consuming and the ingredients can be expensive but they are great.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I made this for a lenten Friday dinner. To make it truely meat free, I used 1 can cream of onion soup, and 1 can cream of celary soup. I used 1 pouch (6oz) of tuna packed in water. I dumped it into a bowl and patted it dry with paper towels. I also added a can of drained peas and carrots. I did not have french fried onions for on top. I baked in a sprayed 7x11 glass dish. It turned out very good. I used 2C uncooked rotennie (springs) pasta that I parboiled for about 5 minutes. The left overs are not 'fishy'.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Made this as is except only used 2 cloves garlic. This was still too much garlic. Overall taste was very good. I would make this again, except use less garlic.

Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
This is a great recipe, thanks for sharing! Here are a few tips... I made the recipe as stated but added 2Tablespoons of melted butter. The batter thickens as it sets but that is ok. I made a template by cutting a 3" diameter circle from a peice of plastic (like a butter bowl lid). They key to these turning out correctly is 1- the whiping of the egg, and 2- keeping them thin. I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and did not grease it. Make sure you whip the egg ad vanilla until it is very frothly but not stiff peaks. Using an offset icing spatula really helped in spreading the batter in the template circle and getting it smooth and thin. I baked about 5 minutes then pulled them out (I was able to do 3 per sheet), using a heavy duty hot glove and a long icing spatula I managed to fold the cookie with the spatula, touch with gloved hand and pick it up and bend over a coffee cup rim. The regular standard mufin pan helped keep their shape until they cooled. I made 3 batches, the first turned out great, the second turned out chewy - then I figured out it was the whipping of the egg that I did not get stiff enough so I tried it again and it worked out great. Hopefully the kids and the teacher will enjoy these as much as I did making them.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
I made these outright not just put the ingredients in a jar. These are really good cookies! I used slated pecans and salted butter so I omitted the salt. They flatten out while baking so give them room. I got 3dz cookies. They stay very pale and pretty. The crandberry give the cookie a nice tangy surprise. Very good.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
These are fantastic! They work up great, will be a bit sticky but that is ok. Refrigerate them overnight then roll out on a lightly floured surface. They hold their shape great and are so tastey. I do add about a 1/4 cup more sugar to them. The frosting is great as well.
