Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2004
WOW! These were awesome. My husband has been craving oatmeal raisin cookies for awhile now. I thought I would try these and boy am I glad I did. I can't believe how chewy they were! Perfect! I did change up a few things. Like others I didn't use the shortening I just used two sticks of butter. I also didn't have the cloves in the pantry, so I tried pumpkin pie spice which has cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. What a great taste it gave the cookies. I also split the batch and made some of the cookies with chocolate chips too. The kids loved that. These cookies were gobbled up by my husband and kids. These are definitely a staple in our home now. Thanks Beth!!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: May 6, 2004
Great recipe. This sounds exactly a recipe I have except the ingredients are tripled. The only difference I make is I add quite a bit more pumpkin pie spice for more flavor. Everyone eats this up everytime. It is hardly completely cooled before it has been devoured.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: May 17, 2004
WOW! What else can I say, I will never buy bread again. I have made this bread atleast 5 times in the past two weeks. It is great. I also like others let the machine do the work and then take it out and make the bread however I want. I have braided it, created a circle loaf,rolls, and just a regular loaf to use for sandwiches. I plan on making french toast with it next. I can't say enough about this bread. The dough is great to work with. I added a little honey to the dough on one loaf and that was great too. My husband and kids love it too! Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Mom's Best Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2004
This is a good recipe for starters. I am 100% italian and my family owns restuarants all over where I live. My homemade recipe is very similar to this, however I deleted the mushrooms, parmesan cheese, and the baking soda. I add a little more garlic then this recipe calls for and NO water. I also add oregano to mine. When cooking it is important to cook the onions and garlic in some olive oil first. This brings out the flavor. I also add the fresh parsley basil and oregano (chopped), and salt and pepper to that first and cook a few minutes. Then I add the whole tomatoes and the juice in the can, very important to take your hands to them and crush them a little. I let that come to a boil first before adding the sauce. After adding the sauce, I simmer and let it cook for 3 or 4 hours, stirring occasionally with the lid partially on. I also add additional seasoning as I taste and go along. What really turns the sauce unbelievably awesome is that I make meatballs seperately in a frying pan and once they are cooked I add them to the sauce during the last hour. WOW! gives the sauce such an awesome flavor.
