Beef Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Hmmm....I was surprised to see so many recipes called "Enchilidas" made with FLOUR tortillas. True enchiladas are made with CORN tortillas not flour; however I do make this all the time using flour tortillas; but I dont call them "Enchiladas" I call them "Enchi-ritos" cus they contain a combination of enchilada/burrito ingredients.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
Just made these today and they were awesome! They didnt spread out much so I lightly pressed down each rounded ball of dough before baking. You do have to watch very carefully during the last 3 minutes because they can burn quickly! Thanks for sharing this one! I now have a new fave cookie recipe added to my collection.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I scaled this recipe down to half. I use 7 - 8 cups of popped corn. Here's the trick: spread popcorn onto a large lightly greased baking pan. Place in 250 degree oven to keep warm while you make the caramel syrup. Drizzle caramel syrup holding the ladle or spoon up high to get the thin stream. Carefully toss to coat then stir every 10 to 15 minutes; for me this only takes 30 to 45 minutes..comes out perfect every time! Thanks for posting this recipe!!

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I have a recipe almost identical to this one. For those who had problems or disappointments; This is what you do: Season all sides of chicken pieces(and yes bone in chicken works!!) with salt pepper and garlic powder; or use your fave seasonings. Place in shallow dish or bowl; and use the dressing as a Marinade! and marinate for at least one hour. Then line a baking dish with foil(dull side up)remove chicken from dressing and place in foil lined pan. Then top each piece with cheese after about 45 minutes..parmesan works best for me, and return to oven for 15 minutes until lightly golden brown. Prepared this way makes it a 5 star! PS>>remove skin from bone-in chicken pieces**

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
My aunt gave me some apples (more than I could eat before having them go bad) and found this recipe so I decided to try it. I dont have a canner so I used a big pot like I do when I make jelly. I only had 4 lbs of apples so I used the custom feature to scale this recipe down. I took other suggestions and used part brown sugar and increased the cinnamon and used pumpkin pie spice. *My question is...are the apples supposed to still be "crisp" when you open the jar? When I sampled the next day they were just as crisp and fresh tasting as they were when I filled the jars. I have only made canned jelly and not sure what the texture is supposed to be on this recipe. Nonetheless they do taste great!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
After reading over several recipes, I decided to use this one as a base to come up with my own. However, the Amish White Bread recipe on this site is the best one so far to follow exactly as written. I made changes in this one; I used all natural White/Whole Wheat flour, used 1 cup of regular milk instead of the canned, 1/3 cup oil. I had to let one of the loaves rise alot longer(the first one I did as reciped called for and wasnt happy with the results). However, the flavor and texture was great!!

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
I just made these today and Wow! I am always skipping breakfast and worse yet raiding the vending machine when I get to work. Store bought breakfast/granola bars are expensive(the good kind anyway) and I wanted to find a homemade recipe to have a nutritious "grab n go" breakfast.I wanted more of a health bar so I used 3 cups of Vitamin Enriched Bran Flakes and 2 1/2 c. oats. I put the bran flakes and 2 cups of the oats in a food processor and blended it to form a "cornmeal" type texture. I also added 1/2 cup of peanut butter and reduced the flour to 1/2 cup and mini chocolate chips to 3/4 cup. PERFECT! Try the tips I used and believe me you wont be disappointed..there's tons of room in this recipe for tweaking and adjusting to your own preference. Thanks for sharing this one Nancy!

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
I've been searching for a good brownie recipe that uses cocoa powder instead of the unsweetened baking chocolate squares and I am so glad to find this one! I never have the baker's chocolate squares on hand, but always have cocoa powder. But when I went to try this recipe I quickly discovered I was 1/3 cup short of cocoa powder, so I stirred in 1/4 cup of dark chocolate syrup and it worked great! I can't wait to try it with the full 2/3 cup of cocoa. I also reduced the sugar to 2 cups. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I will be making the jar gifts for this in the future for sure!

Asian-Style Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
I was looking for a new port recipe and came across this one. It was pretty good. I used two large pork steaks, used soy sauce instead of teriyaki, and chicken broth instead of the sherry. Also, I ommited the all spice. It still came out very tasty! I cooked the sauce with the meat as directed; loved it! thanks for sharing.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I love egg rolls but hate paying the high price of buying them at the grocery store. So I was happy to find this recipe to give me an idea of how to make them myself :) I used a beaten egg for "the glue" instead of the flour/water mixture. Also, after cooking my meat I simply added my cabbage, carrots, and 2 tbs. soy sauce, 2 tbs. water and cooked it all together until the cabbage was tender. I used a package of pre shredded angel hair cabbage; I dunno if it was because the cabbage was sliced so thin or what but I had to use twice as much as this recipe called for. Anyway, they came out great!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
I have made this recipe twice already and it is excellent! I place the dry ingredients and shortening in my food processor and then gradually add the water until the dough is smooth. Like others have posted, I have to add up to an extra 1/4 cup of hot water...I didnt use boiling water either, very hot water works fine too. Also, I place all the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes to an hour. Then I pinch off amounts of dough, roll into a ball, then roll out with a rolling pin. I found this method works best for me.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
I can't believe how hard of a time I had trying to find a homemade sausage recipe! I am so glad you posted this one Lee :) It gave me a good base to create my own and tweak the seasonings. I left out the marjoram and cloves. I doubled up on red pepper flakes and added a grill steak spice blend. I also added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and reduced the brown sugar to 2 tsp(could've left it out all together and be just fine!). Also, I used one pound of ground venison and one pound of ground pork. It came out great! :)

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This is a very good recipe after I made several changes. 1 cup of cocoa seemed like too much; and I am glad I reduced it to 3/4 cup otherwise the cocoa flavor wouldve been too overpowering. I also increased the baking powder, elimated the baking soda, using 1 tsp. of salt. used milk instead of water and added a box of instant ( chocolate fudge flavor) pudding. It came out great! very moist and rich chocolate flavor :)

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
I made this dough tonight and it was perfect! I took the time to dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm cup of water though and let the dough rise for 30 minutes. Then kneaded it lightly and let it rise again for 15 minutes. I feel the dough doesn't need to be flavored like others suggested; pizza sauce and toppings add all the flavor you need :) I made a huge deep dish pizza using all the dough in a 9x13 baking dish; piled high with cheese and toppings..the crust was thick, soft and moist just the way I love it!! Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
Great Recipe! I have a huge deep dish pie pan so I added alot more ingredients. Instead of broccoli I used a 10oz pkg of spinach, added 1 cup of cooked, chopped turkey, used 2 tbs. olive oil instead of butter for the onion and garlic which i increased to 2 tsp.; and only 1/2 of a medium sized onion. I also used 6 eggs and increased my baking time. It came out wonderful!!! thanks for sharing this, I was looking for a base quiche recipe to create my own and this one was perfect.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
I made these last night; they were good but didn't exactly meet my expectations. I followed the recipe as directed and didnt change the ingredients, and somehow they came out kinda greasy. If I don't find a better recipe I will try adding more flour next time.

Coffee Flavored Liqueur III

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
I gave this one 5 stars! It sure beats paying the high price at the liquor store. Instead of straining the coffee grounds, I emptied a family sized tea bag and inserted the coffee grounds and resealed with a stapler...worked GREAT!

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2004
I have several cook books and none of them have a recipe for homemade tortillas! Thank you Thank you for posting this one! I have always used the pre- mixed tortilla flour you find in the grocery store, but I knew how much cheaper it was to make them from ingredients I already have in my kitchen..and this recipe was excellent! I got 14 tortillas from this one: I agree that you have to get the "feel" of the dough in making tortillas..I did not use boiling water only very hot from the faucet..but I had to add a little more water than the recipe called for and I rolled them paper thin and cooked them in a cast iron skillet..they turned out great!!! I am going to pass it down to my kids! Thanks again for sharing it!
