Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
I put it in the crock pot frozen. I only made one corned beef and I used one bottle of beer (on the wall.. in my head now) and I threw in a bunch of garlic and the seasoning packet and went to work. Hubby works from home and kept an eye on it. Started on high for about 4 hours, then turned it off about 3 hours later. I turned it back on to warm when I got home and served on bread for sandwiches with some Swiss cheese. Supreme-o. Was very salty on its own... I think that is the tendency of the meat. I froze the left overs for another time. GREAT recipe! TFP!

Party Punch VI

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I made this punch for a father/ daughter dance at my daughter's school. And it was so good. I pretty much tripled the recipe (3 gallons of fruit punch, 3 2-liters, and a 5 quart container of ice cream/ sherbet (found at Publix if you are in the southeast). I would put in a punch bowl- honestly- the ratios weren't perfect. When it would get low, I would just refill the bowl with punch, then the soda, and then the sherbert to keep it cold. The frothy, cold beverage was perfect for dancing girls and their dads and the color was a nice addition to our red and pink post- Valentine's Day dance. We had 150 ppl and it was enough punch (we also served soda and water) for the night. I filled a few cups at the end with the very last of it. It was literally good to the last drop. Thank you for this simple, perfect recipe. A crowd pleaser to say the least!

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I loved this recipe. I was making this for dessert for my family. I made the brownie part in a 9 inch round (in the oven- let it bake for 30 mins and pulled it out when the edges looked done- if you let it cook to long the brownies will be chewy) and it was cooling and then company came unexpectedly. Due to time constraints, I skipped the stove part (evaporated milk/ melt chocolate) and just mixed cream cheese (I used honey nut crm chz- the premixed kind for bagels and mixed that with whipped cream from the can and a full shot of Liqueur 43- a raspberry liqueur instead of jelly) I spread it on top of my 9" round upside down brownie circle on a plate and topped it with fresh strawberries and more mini chocolate chips. Wish I had taken a pic. So pretty. It was awesome. Nice to share with the M-I-L... she was impressed at my "whipped up" dessert and nice to have something made to share with company. The brownie was soft and the crm chz/ whipped cream was perfect. RICH. Serve with coffee! TFP!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I thought this was really good. I liked the fact that I learned to make pudding from scratch. It was good and really easy. The pie itself was a little boring. Next time I will make a puree of bananas and mix a little in the pudding and I would also like some whipped cream on the top. Maybe some toasted coconut or almonds on the top to increase flavor interest. But, as just a boring banana cream pie, it was good.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
My witch fingers were made too big and they spread out to look more like ogre fingers. But, they were green and they looked like "Shrek" fingers. Still a big hit! They looked awesome and they taste great. Thank you for the recipe. Look for the pic.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I used the ratio of ingredients listed by a review. I used the 1 stick of butter and 11 cups of cereal. Pretty much close to this recipe. I also added food coloring to the marshmallow and butter mixture and made GREEN rice crispy treats for my little goblins for Halloween. My mom suggested cutting them into shapes with cookie cutters but I haven't gotten that far yet. If I do, I will re-edit this review. TFP!

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
These cookies were very good. They came out a little flat when they were cooked. The only reason I gave them 4/5 stars. I followed the directions. No changes. And rolled out the dough. They spread quite a bit, which was fine, but a little flat. They did crisp on the edges and they were soft in the center.. perfect consistency. Even so much they fell apart because they were thin, but tasty.

Banana Cream Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Really good.. made no changes. Made super last minute and rather than the fridge, I put it in the freezer for about an hour or so while we were eating dinner. Did I mention I made this super last minute? It was great. I sliced bananas and piled on extra whipped cream right before serving. I was concerned about the bananas turning. But. I gotta say, I just had a piece the next day and WOW it was even better. So, in hind sight. making it in advance and letting it sit prolly helps to meld the flavors, but for a quick throw together and serve, it was great. It was served after a heavy pasta dish and BLT salad, which was good as well. Guests loved it and it was a success! TFP such an easy and delicious summer dessert!

BLT Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I made this salad on very short notice. The mayo was added last minute to prevent sogginess. I added quite a bit of shredded chz and forgot to add croutons, but they didn't seem to be missed. I also left tomatoes on the side b/c DH doesn't care for them. Folks scooped them in as they pleased. All in all a winner. I was joking with my friend that I didn't even need to write down the ingredients.. B-L-T Salad.. speaks for itself!! Very good! Used romaine, btw.

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I made this twice. The first time I used an iron skillet and hubby cooked sausage on grill. I sauted onions and garlic in pan. Then added red cooking wine and beef broth and let it boil for a while. Then, I added the sausage and let it cook a little longer. Then I put in crock pot and put in seasonings and tomato sauce. I left out the tomatoes. I let it cook for a couple hours more. Kids loved it. It got left out overnight and I had to throw it out. :( Second batch I used chicken broth and cooked the sausage in the skillet. I put it in the crock pot again with the sauted veggies and instead of tomato sauce I just added a whole jar of spaghetti sauce! I left it thin enough to be a soup and the seasoning were enough to keep it tasting great. The second batch was a little oilier because of the cooking the sausage inside in a skillet rather than the grill. I think the flavor of sausage was better the first time, but the spaghetti sauce worked great. Then second batch I

Mini Butter Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
WAY to much butter. They were actually sizzling in their own butter in the oven. They didn't cook through. I had to split them open and put them back in the oven. They still didn't cook well. Doughy and greasy are the only two words I can think of to describe them. Nothing worse than having to clean up a mess of an unsuccessful recipe. I will not be making these again. :(

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I followed the directions, but I also added pecans and craisins. (like dried cranberries, but sweeter). The time to cook seemed a lot longer than 50 minutes, more like 60 or 65, but it might just be my oven. I had rave reviews and when combined with a cream cheese icing, it is like cake for breakfast. Wonderful!

All Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
I have never made anything like this before. I had no idea it was so easy. I peeled the apples completely, cored them, and chopped them in the food processor. Then, I dumped them in the crock pot and added the spices that were recommended by a reviewer (cinnamon, cloves, pumpkin pie spice) and I used a little less than three pounds of apples and a little less than 4 cups of sugar. I cooked it on high overnight for 6 hours then 10 hours on low and maybe a bit longer than that on low. It came out great. I chilled it overnight in containers and we had oven baked biscuits this morning and they were wonderful. I am considering learning how to "can" them to make them for holiday gifts. TFP!

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
We loved this dish. If you can, get someone to help you in the kitchen. Hubby made the rice and chopped the chicken. That was quite helpful as this was a three step process to make. I didn't have enough corn starch on hand so I used some Bisquik to supplement a bit. I did only use three tablespoons for the first part and I am not sure how much for the breading. I think a little more breading makes this more of an authentic tasting dish. (and we like the breading, let's face it... if you are making this, you are not watching what you are eating too much.) :) The dish was great. I felt like a "gourmet cook" due to the nature of the dish. The flavors were at three different levels we decided: sweet (from the sugar), spicy (from the sun dried chilli peppers), and the ginger really cleanses the pallate (sp?) in between each bite. Really great and makes you feel like you are a great cook! TFTP

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I do not like to buy processed cheese food. The words just make it sound gross. But, for this recipe I thought I would try it because cheddar cheese would have melted all clumpy. I am glad I did because this soup was excellent. I will definitely be making this one again. TFP.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
The sauce wasd good but the meat was rather chewy. May have just been the cuts of meat, but I am not sure. I think I will try it again, but with a different cut of meat.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I used chicken and I roasted the chicken in the oven. Then, I put it in the food processor which gave it a nice texture. Then, I added the spices and they came out great. I really enjoyed this authentic tasting recipe for wonton soup.

Italian Roast Beef I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Very good. I actually used a wok pan (I know kind of odd- but it worked.) and the roast fit in nicely and the heat was able to convect around the roast. The meat was tender and the juices were good to make a nice light gravy. The seasonings were a little heavy, but that might have been my fault because I wanted to ensure that there was flavor. All in all, it was a nice way to make a roast.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Excellent recipe. I made it in the crock pot early in the morning and let it cook all day. Hubby brought home med. spicy sausage and grilled it. I added celery, corn, and carrots a little late in the day so they were crunchy for dinner. So, I left it in the crock pot that night on low and in the morning it was delicious. It made a ton I even gave some to a pregnant friend who has two little ones at home. We had it for dinner tonight and it was even better after all the flavors blended. Yummy!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
This recipe was run of the mill chicken soup. I added celery and carrots because I have never heard of having chicken noodle soup with out it. Other than that, it was good. It made a ton. I actually will cut it in half next time.
