Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This is EXCELLENT recipe for BUSY FAMILIES!! The first time I made it, it came out on the thicker side (maybe too much meat?), so I added a little corn starch/water mixture to thicken it even more; now it's VEGETABLE STOUP. The only thing I did differently was to add Oregano and a little Creole seasoning in place of salt. Served with Beer Bread (another to-die for recipe) & salad for a great meal!! ONE RECOMMENDATION: For a more tender, fall-off-the-bone meat, I recommend cooking it for at least 7-8 hours on low. After 6 hours, my meat was tender (and tasty), but after 7 hours, you could cut the meat with a fork.

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
**ATTENTION FANS OF TASTEFULLY SIMPLE'S BEER BREAD** This recipe is a DELICOUS (and MUCH cheaper) alternative to TS's Beer Bread! I whipped up a double batch in no time and have to say that this recipes is a KEEPER! THE BEST PART: It's made with simple staples that nearly everyone has in their kitchen. I especially love the idea from other Reviewers of putting all the dry ingredients together in a bag and attaching to a bottle of beer for Christmas gifts.

This hot chocolate is absolutely DELICIOUS!! It is SO CREAMY and FROTHY!! The only comment I have is that this only made, at most, 4-1/2 cup servings, so DOUBLE the recipe and ENJOY!!

I stumbled onto this and decide to make it for our family Thanksgiving. To me, the most difficult part was getting the tin-foil to cooperate when stuffing and trying to make the cornucopia shape. Once I accomplished that, wrapping the bread was a BREEZE! As other mentioned, I also DID NOT use the egg wash to attach the strips; instead, choosing to press the pieces together. This is a FUN project with the end result being very impressive!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These truffles are absolutely DELICIOUS and are so unbelievably simple to make. This is the second time I've made them in the past couple of weeks and I think I've perfected the process (without changing the recipe). TIP 1: Once the cookies & cream cheese are mixed, REFIGERATE mixture for an hour. TIP 2: Use a Mellon Ball scooper to scoop out onto the waxed paper. TIP 3: REFIGERATE the rolled balls another hour to harden. This makes it easier to roll in the melted chocolate. TIP 4: Try different chocolates for dipping!! I dipped some in White chocolate and some in semi-sweet chocolate; the white-dipped ones were FANTASTIC. The two flavors really complimented each other!!! Definitely a keeper of a recipe...

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2006
As a Tiramisu-Lover, I decided to try this recipe, based on the reviews. The only thing I can say is WOW!!!! The RICH & CREAMY flavor mixed with the Coffee-soaked lady fingers leaves you wanting more! VERY IMPORTANT: Let it refrigerate AT LEAST 24 hours; the flavors really need to blend!! I tasted the mixture right after adding the Marscapone Cheese and it tasted very bland. However, after refrigerating overnight, it was probably better than any Tiramisu I'd ever tasted. ONE MORE IMPORTANT TIP: As others have mentioned, doubling the coffee / rum mixture is a MUST. You get that espresso taste, blended with the creamy flavor - HEAVENLY!
