Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Pretty good recipe. I cut the high quality sirloin I bought from the butcher to about 1 inch but next time I'll slice it even thinner to achieve a less chewy/dry meat. I cooked mine on high but I think a longer, lower cooking temperature would also help with the texture of the beef.

Spiced Beef Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
What a keeper! Loved the deep, sweet flavor of the broth. Thanks Corwynn. I simmered mine on the stove top and used fresh vegetables. Remember - when adding the flour to the pot, add some of the beef broth to break up the flour rue. I will make this again and again. Even my 3 1/2 and 9 1/2 ate it, and they are very, very picky eaters. :-)

Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
I made this recipe for my daughter's wedding shower. Originally, I let them marinate overnight(about 21 hours). When I ate them during the celebration, I thought they were tasteless and boring. What a big let down. HOWEVER, I had a few left over the next day...about 48 hours later and they were freakin' fantastic!!! This is a quick, easy to prepare dish that can be made 2 days ahead of time so you can concentrate on the other foods being served. The ingredients need time to blend AND permeate the shrimp.

Vanilla Wafer Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Certainly not worth the stick of butter or the calories. Very gooey and wet.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Wonderfully easy recipe! No changes made...only poured onto buttered, foiled cookie sheet and pulled with a fork. Yum! Will make again and again. You will have to work very fast before sugar sets. Stick with regular peanut - I tried with cashews and that batch was not as good.

Rosenmunnar

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Great for a cookie swap as these Swedish creations don't contain the cream cheese of Polish kolaches! I added an extra cup of sifted flour as I didn't like the original consistency (too fluffy and spread out too much when baked). Buttery. fruity, moist and delicious! I dusted powdered sugar atop to aid in separating cookies after being stacked on display platter.

Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
The BEST lemon cookie ever!!! I used 2 3/4 cups flour, zest of 3 large lemons, 1/2 cup canola oil and almost a full cup of fresh squeezed lemon and let it sit in the frig overnight only because I was too tired to bake them the same day. I used two spoons to place dough on cookie sheet by the 1/2 teaspoon only. (Scoop up mixture with one spoon and scrap off with the other). I baked for 8 minutes as I wanted soft cookies. Very delicious, tangy but sweet mixture. So freckin' good if you loooove lemon!!!

Chocolate Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
Goopy, sloppy piece of garbage you can't even cut. I tried it twice and neither time worked. I ended up balling this mess after it baked and coated them with cocoa. It was the only way it could be salvaged.

Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
Can't be a faster or more fresh and delicious tasting salsa! I used 3 cans spicy tomatoes - no fresh. Added 3/4 juice of a lime and some fresh squeezed garlic (1 to 2 cloves) and fresh chopped cilantro too. Since I threw it together the day of the party, I simmered all the ingredience for awhile to help speed up the blending of the flavors (except cilantro - I didn't want it to wilt). This was wonderful to serve with the "scoops" nacho chips.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
THE MOST DELICIOUS RECIPE I made this Christmas! I did use the walnuts. Remember to save a few to throw on top for presentation when your cake is whole. I also added a couple capfuls of rum to the frosting mixture. Yum! Blends well with the walnut and spice flavors. To serve I suggest decorating your serving plates with a little caramel sauce on the bottom then the slice of cake. On top a little sifted powdered sugar, whipped cream and a whole walnut. What presentation!! You'll have your guests wowed!

Farm Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
Maybe it was just me...but these cookies came out almost flat as a board. I found it difficult to deal with the whipped eggs two times after they were whipped. I couldn't tell what consistancy they were suppose to be at each different stage. They probably had the air worked out them.
