Jeanne's Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
GOOD FLAVOR , YET NOT THAT RICH . NOT TOO HARD OR SOFT . THEY WORKED WELL FOR EASTER COOKIES . RECEIVED "MELT IN YOUR MOUTH MINTS" , THEY LOOK JUST LIKE THE KISSES EXCEPT THAT THEY ARE MINTS IN PASTEL COLORS . USED THEM IN PLACE OF THE KISSES ... EVERYONE LOVED THE MINT WITH THE CHOCOLATE .

Java Chocolaty Cookies

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
GOOD RECIPE , SIMILIAR TO TOLLHOUSE EXCEPT FOR THE USE OF SHORTENING. I USED HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK EXPRESSO (4.5 OZ.) BAR THAT I BROKE UP INTO CHUNKS . ALSO ADDED CHOPPED PECANS . THE EXPRESSO CHOCOLATE REALLY GAVE IT A GREAT TASTE WITH THE KAHLUA . NEXT TIME I WILL ADD AT LEAST ANOTHER HALF A BAR IF NOT A WHOLE ONE AND GO BACK TO BUTTER .

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
I WAS LOOKING FOR A CHOCOLATE COOKIE RECIPE THAT I COULD ADD PEANUT BUTTER CHIPS TO TO MAKE REESES PIECES COOKIES. THIS IS THE FIRST ONE I PULLED UP . THE TEXTURE WAS NICE AND MOIST AND HAS A GOOD FLAVOR . WHAT I REALLY WAS LOOKING FOR WAS A MUCH RICHER CONSISTENCY . ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA ? I WAS THINKING OF TRYING EITHER A HERSHEYS CHOCOLATE SYRUP OR , MAYBE , EVEN AN ICE CREAM FUDGE TOPPING .

Dog Biscuits II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
I BAKE EVERYDAY AND SOME OF THOSE DAYS ARE MAKING DOG TREATS . THESE WENT OVER AS ONE OF THEIR FAVOTITES ( GERMAN SHEPARD , BLACK LAB , TN WHATCHAMACALLIT DOG AND A NEW DACHSHUND PUPPY). THE ONLY THING THAT I CHANGED WAS TO USE BABY FOOD ( BEEF , CHICKEN ), FROM JARS ,IN PLACE OF THE MEAT . IT WORKS OUT GREAT. YOU REALLY ONLY NEED ONE ( 2.5 OZ. )JAR , BUT I USED TWO. DO AS MANY AS YOU WANT , JUST ADJUST THE AMOUNT OF FLOUR . I ALSO PUT SOME CHOPPED PARSLEY IN , A COUPLE OF TABLESPOONS IS PLENTY , TO HELP THEIR " DOGGEY " BREATH .

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
FOR ALL OF YOU COMPLAINING ON THE CLEAN UP . USE RELEASE ( ALUMNIUM FOIL ) . JUST WRAP COOKING DISH , INSIDE , WITH RELEASE , THROW OUT WHEN FINISHED , OR USE TO WRAP LEFTOVER CHICKEN IN TO REFRIGERATE . NO CLEAN UP AT ALL .I USE RELEASE FOR EVERYTHING . GREAT WHEN BAKING COOKIES . ONE SHEET WILL LAST THROUGH A FULL RECIPE ( NO NEED TO CHANGE EACH TIME . ) RELEASE , YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING TO ( GREASE UP ) . HOPE THIS HELPS.. IT SHOULD !!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I HAVE BEEN MAKING THIS ( VERY SIMILIAR ) FOR YEARS . I USE A 10 OZ. PACKAGE FROZEN SPIANCH (DEFROSTED ), 4 EGGS , 2 1/2 CUPS MIXTURE OF ANY TYPE OF CHEESES ( I LIKE SWISS WITH PARMESAN OR MOZZAELLA WITH RICOTTA ) , ANYTHING WORKS . I THROW IN CHOPPED SCALLIONS , A TOUCH OF NUTMEG AND GARLIC SALT . I ALSO TOP WITH BOTTLED MUSHROOM SLICES , GREEN OLIVES , TOMATO SLICES OR WHATEVER I HAVE ON HAND . BAKE AT 375 ,IN A 9 " PIE PAN , FOR 30 MINUTES , OR UNTIL THE EDGE STARS TO BROWN AND THE CENTER NO LONGER BUBBLES ( WITH MOISTURE ) . WHEN ENTERTAINING , I DOUBLE THE RECIPE AND BAKE IN A 9" X 13" GLASS BAKING DISH , CUT INTO SMALL SQUARES AND SERVED AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. IT IS ALWAYS IS A HIT .

Orange Marmalade Bars

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
AFTER READING THE OTHER REVIEWS, I DECIDED TO CHANGE THE RECIPE, BY VERY LITTLE. I CHANGED THE SERVING AMOUNT FROM 12 TO 24 . INSTEAD OF 3 CUPS OF FLOUR , I USED 2 CUPS OF FLOUR AND 1 CUP OF OATS. I PRESSED DOWN THE FIRST HALF OF THE FLOUR/OAT MIXTURE INTO THE BOTTOM OF A GREASED 9" X 9" PAN, AND USED A MIXTURE OF HALF ORANGE MARMALADE AND APRICOT PRESERVES. WITH THE REMAINING FLOUR MIXTURE, I DROPPEED TEASPOONS OF THE DOUGH ONTO THE FRUIT LAYER. THIS WAY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ROLLING OUT THE DOUGH, IT FILLS IN AS IT BAKES. I BAKED IT FOR 30 MINUTES AND WHEN IT CAME OUT OF THE OVEN, I DID A VERY LIGHT DUSTING OF CINNAMON SUGAR. WHEN COMPLETELY COOLED, I SIFTED A FINE DUSTING OF CONFECTIONERS SUGER ON TOP. HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL HELP THOSE WHO WERE HAVING A HARD TIME WITH THE TOP LAYER. I BAKE EVERYDAY AND SEND THE "GOODIES" OFF TO WORK WITH MY HUSBAND. IN THE EVENING I ALWAYS ASK HOW THEY WENT OVER AND TO THESE THE ANSWER WAS "GREAT".

Applesauce Cookies II

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
THESE ARE , AS WAS STATED BEFORE , NOT THAT ATTRACTIVE. I WHIPPED UP SOME CONFECTIONER'S SUGAR AND MILK, ADDING SOME CINNAMON, TO MAKE A GLAZE TO TOP THE COOKIES . IT MADE THEM LOOK MORE APPEALING AND GAVE THEM A LITTLE UMPH...THEY REALLY ARE NOT VERY SPICEY, SO I DID ADD SOME ALLSPICE TO THE RECIPE. THEY ARE OK , BUT NOT ONES THAT I BAKE VERY OFTEN.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
THESE ARE GREAT , I HAVE BEEN MAKING THEM FOR YEARS . ONE THING,IN THE RECIPE IT SAYS "UNWRAPPED" REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS. I ALWAYS TAKE THEM OUT OF THE PAPER. IF YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE, I MAKE COOKIES, USING THE BROWNIE MIX (1 EGG, 2 TABLESPOONS WATER AND 1/3 CUP VEGETABLE OIL) AND ADD REESES PEANUT BUTTER CHIPS TO THE BATTER. BAKE @ 375 FOR 7-8 MINUTES.(FOUND THIS RECIPE ON A DUNCAN HINES BROWNIE MIX BOX) QUICK AND EASY AND THE KIDS, BIG KIDS , TOO , LOVE THEM.

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
USING A CINNAMON SWIRL CAKE MIX, I MADE UP 24 CUPCAKES AND NEEDED A FROSTING THAT WOULD HARDEN ( GOOD FOR BOXING ,TRAVEL). THIS WAS PERFECT....FAST AND EASY...I DID HAVE TO ADD A LITTLE MORE MILK (I USED HALF AND HALF)FOR THE LAST FEW CUPCAKES , BUT THEY WERE READY WITHIN MINUTES TO BE BOXED UP. NEXT I AM GOING TO TRY THIS RECIPE WITH GRANULATED SUGAR IN PLACE OF THE BROWN AND USE A DIFFERENT EXTRACT (ORANGE , LEMON, PEPPERMINT,ETC.) AND SEE HOW THAT WORKS.

Whipped Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
THIS IS THE WAY I ALWAYS MAKE MY MASHED POTATOES. I HAVE TO, I HAVE A VERY PICKY HUSBAND, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO "HIS" MASHED POTATOES. JUST ONE THING , USE EITHER YUKON GOLD OR RUSSET POTATOES, IF YOU WANT THEM TO COME OUT GOOD.

Ultimate All in One Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
GREAT RECIPE WITH A A COUPLE OF CHANGES THAT YOU REALLY DO NOT HAVE TO DO. IT IS FINE JUST THE WAY IT IS. I DID USE LESS OF THE CHICKEN BROTH, BUT ADDED WHITE WINE (A GOOD HALF A CUP ). I USED RED POTATOES. I DID WHAT ANOTHER REVIEWER SAID AND RUBBED THE SEASONINGS ONTO THE CHICKEN , BEFORE BROWNING. AFTER PLACING EVERYTHING BACK INTO THE PAN, I ADDED OLD BAY SEASONING. I HAD SOME FROZEN GREEN BEANS , THAT WE HAD THE NIGHT BEFORE, SO I USED THEM IN PLACE OF CANNED (DO NOT USED CANNED VEGEIES). THIS RECIPE WILL ACCEPT OTHER KINDS OF VEGIES,USE YOUR IMAGINATION (CARROTS,ARTICHOKE HEARTS...EVEN OLIVES).WHEN MY HUSBAND COMPLIMENTS A MEAL, YOU KNOW THAT IT IS GOOD...AND HE DID !
