Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
I have been making all types of fudge for over 20 years, so I thought this one would be good, since we love pumpkin pie. I have NEVER had a fudge not set up completely, until now. It did NOT set up at all, even though we followed the recipe exactly. We boiled for 18 minutes, and my son even mentioned that it looked like caramel, when it was completely finished. It's gooey, but not fudge. It's a pumpkin caramel, completely stuck to the foil. If the taste were spectacular, we might try it again, but it isn't.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I just finished making these. I am only giving them a four star, because they weren't completely done at 15 minutes, as posted. The inside rolls are completely doughy, which is disappointing. The taste if FANTASTIC, but the recipe needs to be modified to bake for 20 minutes. The tops were nice and brown, but the insides were really doughy. We are going to try to freeze the inside ones and then bake them in the microwave to finish dough. Also, I used all butter and no margarine, and I would also recommend this. Margarine has a very high water content, which isn't conducive to most recipes.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I've made this one several times, as posted, and just made it again, using beef broth, as I was out of chicken. It was FANTASTIC! It's a favorite of ours, when we're having fajitas. It's just like they make at the restaurants. :)

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This is now my 'go to' pound cake recipe. I followed it to the letter, and it was smooth and the consistency was fantastic. It was a bit much for my Pampered Chef bundt stone, so it did bake over the stone a bit, but I will make it again and again. I also make a powered sugar, cream, and lemon extract icing and drizzle it on top of the cake. It really makes it beautiful.

Chocolate Yummies

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
The taste of this dessert is okay, however, the cracker crumbles, at any attempt to cut into squares. So, essentially you have a crumbled mess of graham cracker, instead of a square of dessert. My kiddos weren't even impressed with this one. I'd rather just make crispy treats, as they take less time and are less of a mess to cut and eat.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
PERFECT for making cinnamon rolls, as well. I split the recipe in half, as directed, and made one large loaf of bread, and two nine inch round pans of cinnamon rolls (roll out dough, melt 1/2 stick real butter, spread on rolled dough, sprinkle with 1/2 C. cinnamon/sugar mixture, cut and bake for 20 mins.). My family said it was the best bread I ever made, and the moistest cinnamon rolls ever.

English Toffee

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This toffee tastes exactly how my grandmother used to make, and could not be easier. I did omit the nuts and boil the mixture until about 280'-290', and it set up perfectly. I also melted my chocolate and then spread it over the top. It turned out PERFECT and everyone loves it! I will definitely be making this each and every year, from now on.

Coffee Shop Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I omitted the nuts, and used instant prepared coffee, instead of brewed, and lined the pan with parchment paper, instead of buttering foil. The taste is pretty good, but the 8 x 8 pan makes the fudge entirely too thin. I will use a smaller pan the next time, for a thicker square. It is not a dry fudge, but a moister, gummier type of fudge.

Holly Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I wouldn't make these again using corn flakes. Even with the 10 oz. of marshmallows that another user suggested, these came out gooey and tasteless IMO. I would maybe try Fruity Pebbles instead.

Texas Cowboy Chili Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Although the flavor is pretty good, our beans would not soften in the least, even with extended cooking time. This is not a recipe that I would use uncooked pinto beans in, again.

Broiled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
We made this recipe for the first time tonight, omitting the wine altogether and adding about 1/3 C. lemon juice. After broiling, there was sufficient juice to toss fettucini with it. We then sprinkled it all with parmesan romano and parsley. It was as good as 'Lobster King' (Red Lobster), says the hubby.

Grandpa's Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These popcorn balls taste just like a gourmet popcorn shop from back home. They really taste rich and buttery! We must have popped too much corn, because ours weren't covered as much as the photo. Does anyone know how many cups of unpopped kernels makes 5 quarts popped?

Slow Cooker Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This is a great family recipe. I would definitely NOT cook the pasta, and add more sauce, as my pasta was mushy by the time it was done. I omitted the canned soup and used one large bottle of prepared spaghetti sauce and didn't layer. I also used ground chuck and pepperoni and had no issues with grease. In addition, I added one large tablespoon of chopped garlic and one large tablespoon of dehydrated onions, and could have used even more. It was, as noted before, quite spicy, so cutting down on the pepperoni would be a good tip- wish I would have read it before I made it. I would definitely make this again, as it was really yummy.

Allana's Excellent Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
I loved this recipe. When I made it the second time, I substituted 1 1/2 C. half and half and 1/2 C. milk for the 1 1/2 cups milk it called for. I also used cream of mushroom soup, instead of the celery. I also found I preferred real diced garlic versus the garlic powder, so that's what I used. I might also use sea salt versus the seasoned, as I wasn't crazy about that flavor, combined with the ham. This is a tasty recipe and super easy, and it heats up really well. I would also recommend doubling for a crowd, or taking it to a soup supper potluck!

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
After preparing this recipe today, we found it delicious. I don't think it has the yeasty flavor of Tastefully Simple's or Pampered Chef's beer breads, and it is also much lighter. It is very thick upon mixing, unlike some purchased mixes. I also only baked it for 45 minutes in a stoneware loaf dish, and it was perfect and moist. I served it cubed with a garlic dip mixture of 8 oz. cream cheese, 4 oz. mayo, 1 t. garlic powder, 1 t. dried parsley flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon of seasoned salt and the kids went nuts over it. I will bake some of these for gifts for Christmas, and maybe try freezing a couple to have on hand for company, for sure.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
If you're looking for a pretty nut, these aren't it, but boy are they tasty. I did as suggested and added more egg whites, and vanilla, but I found I had to bake them closer to 1 1/2 hours to get that nutty flavor I expected. I also used Pampered Chef's Cinnamon Plus and it really added an exciting twist. I paired these with the Marvelous Mocha Mix recipe found here and put them in tins for teacher's gifts.

Marvelous Mocha Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
This is super easy to throw together and a yummy treat to warm you up on chilly mornings. I added a little more sugar (about 1/2 cup more), and mixed a little extra mix in my cup. We also mixed up a batch with decaf granules for the kids, and this is a huge hit. You can also stir into warm milk for the kids and it's extra creamy. Of course, add whipped cream on top for an extra special treat. I plan on making several batches and giving it as gifts for teachers.
