Homemade Fresh Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I live in Korea and am not able to get cottage cheese here. This was sooo easy and yummy. I plan to use it in lasagna tomorrow. I do not have a thermometer so I watched for it to just start to boil. Stirred just once during boiling time (which I did on the lowest temp of a gas range). When it started to boil I shut it off and added the vinegar let it sit for 10 min., stirred again and saw the yellow whey. Used two knee highs (new), one inside the other drained and squeezed. Added salt to taste after draining and squeezing(not to milk) and presto!! Wonderful!! Thanks!!

Classic Thanksgiving Dressing With Parsley, Sage and Thyme

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
This was Wonderful!! I did add twice as much liquid (at least maybe more). We live in South Korea but had an American Thanksgiving Day service. Another American that is married to a Korean only ate this Dressing out of everything that was there.

Fast Fruit Cocktail Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
"That stuffs good!" said my husband. I did do a little different. I did 1/2 c brown and 1/2 c white sugar and added 1 t vanilla. I had to cook it for 1 hour. It was very soupy after 30 minutes. Even being cooked for 1 hour it is VERY moist and gooey.

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This is wonderful!! This is only the second time I've tried to make "real" fudge (with out choc. chips) This first time turned into a rock collection. It's been a few years since then. I decided to try again. I read a lot of the reviews and tips on how to make fudge. I don't have a candy thermometer so I used the glass of water method. I ended up cooking it for twenty five minutes total. I checked it ever five because I wasn't sure how long it would take to make it there. I do have a gas range so that helps with the reducing to simmer. I let it sit for 10 minutes after it reached the soft boil stage to cool off some. Then I added the vanilla and butter. I stirred it for 30 minutes until I thought it was losing it's sheen. It set up pretty nice maybe just a tad soft but not to soft to pick up. NO crystalizing and wonderfully smooth!! My 14 month old son keeps begging for more tastes! Imagine that! :) Thanks this is wonderful. I will make for Christmas and New Years!! Tip: use a wet pastry brush around the edges of the sauce pan to make sure no sugar crystals get in. This is much easier than a paper towel.

Fish Egg Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Yummy! Makes a great church potluck salad. I prefer letting the jello/tapioca mixture completely set before adding whipping cream. I liked the consistency better that way.

Cold Corn Salad

This was yummy and easy. I didn't have cucumbers or tomato so left it out. Also I added some dill seasoning to the mayo. Used it for a salad at our church Sunday Lunch! Thanks for for the good idea!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
These were wonderful!! My husand and I made them for our church one Sunday morning. It took a total of 4 hours to get a double batch done. Word to the Wise if you do a double batch do each batch of dough seperately. It's hard to get that much dough mixed up at one time. While the first is raising you can do the second. We used a glass and an apple corer (center) to cut them. made them perfect size. We have been asked to bring them again next week. I think we'll make them on Sat instead of Sunday morning this time! :) We did add a Tsp of Maple to the glaze instead of vanilla. Wonderful. I think we will try adding a couple T of cocoa next week for some Chocolate ones! Thank you so much!

Blueberry Sherbet

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
YUMMY!! I didn't have any lemon juice but had a couple lemon bars leftover from earlier this week. Blended everything together except the lemon bars. I did not press through a sieve. I like the chunkiness. Then chopped the lemon bars in tiny pieces and stirred them in. SOOO Yummy!! (It needed the little bit of lemon).

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
This was great!! I live in South Korea and can not get shortening so I used the substitute of oil. It worked great! I also have a slightly bigger pan than a 9 x 13 so I upped the servings to 36. The cake rose wonderfully and tasted delicious. I added cinnamon plus from pampered chef. It gave it a nice light spiced taste. Next time I will only bake it 30 minutes. It got slightly over done on the bottom and edges. Thanks so much!! Feb 08: I just made this cake again tonight. I have just found out my daughter is allergic to milk and always looking at ways to make things with out milk. Well, I used the basic cake recipe, left out the eggs and milk and added Sprite for the liquid. It turned out wonderful! Again I used oil and not shortening. Wonderful!

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
GREAT!!! I just found out my daughter has a milk allergy and wanted a recipe with out butter or shortening. I used soy milk and these came out great. My husband said he couldn't even tell the difference. I used bread flour with 2 tsp baking soda and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Then added soy milk until just workable. Rolled out and baked at 375 F baked on Pampered Chef stone for 15 min. Lightly browned and wonderful!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Living in Korea we can't get Reese's very easy. These were WONDERFUL!!! I didn't have chocolate chips but had white chocolate chips...mmmmmm sooooo good! Thanks for helping us get our Reese's fix! :) I ended up using 1 1/2 bags of chips and used mini muffin papers. Put a little of the white chocolate on the bottom a flattened ball next then more white chocolate to make it more like an actually Reese. I had a lot of peanut butter mixture left over so then I put it in a 8x8 pan and melted a couple Hershey candy bars for the top (added peanut butter to chocolate like recipe says). I liked the white chocolate better. The actually bars were a little too sweet much more peanut butter mixture than the "Reese" style. Thank you so much!!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
This tasted very good. I added the extra water but still poured off 1/2 cup of liquid before cutting and it was still a little juicy. Maybe the difference in apples. Taste was Wonderful though.
