Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I was very pleased with this recipe. I wanted a softer cookie so I went 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening and they turned out just the right mix of crisp/soft. The flavor is really good. I did chill the dough for about 15 minutes. I baked on 325, but I always do for any cookies unless the recipe calls for a lower temp. I baked using four cookie sheets so I always am loading the cookie dough onto cool sheets.

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Tops any other CCC I've made. These are soft cookies and bake up very nicely. The flavors can be easily mixed up. The first batch I made with vanilla pudding mix and a combination of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Will make these again for sure. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Pretty darn good. I took other's advice and used Beef Broth. I sliced my roast into strips before cooking so didn't do any shredding. Hubby took it to work to feed his crew and it was really well received. Highly recommend, tasty and easy to make.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I had such high hopes for this. The marinade smelled and tasted great when I made it. I let the chicken marinate overnight. The taste was just too dark for me. I'm sure it was the molasses. At the same time the flavor needed some kind of kick, it was a bit boring and it did not penetrate the meat of the chicken whatsoever.

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
Visiting my Gram's farm in NW Iowa was always a treat because this is what she made, only we called it Taverns, and it was my favorite. I've been married 25 years and this is something I often made for my family as well. I sometimes alter the recipe depending on my mood. If I want a kick, I add horseradish, if I want it sweeter I add more ketchup and brown sugar (and please don't exchange the ketchup for tomato sauce or you'll just ruin the effect). This is really good, quick, fast and uses ingredients you already have. So what are you waiting for?

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
It took a lot for me to try a chocolate chip cookie recipe other than the one that has been in my family for years. I made this to pack for my hubby on a weekend fishing trip. I was looking for a recipe that would make soft cookies that would stay soft. This was so it! Wow! These were fantastic. Not only the texture but the taste. And the fab thing is you can really change up the flavor of pudding you use as well as the chips. I made one batch of white chocolate pudding with chocolate chips and another batch with butterscotch pudding with both chocolate and butterscotch chips. The guys said I could make them cookies any time. Thanks for this fantastic recipe.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
With all the wonderful reviews I couldn't resist trying this. I only used one chicken but used rub recipe for two and used it all. Time being an issue, I only let the rubbed down bird sit in the fridge for about four hours. I did put some water in the bottom of my roaster and I did baste three time during the 4 hours the bird roasted, I also flipped the bird at one point (bird was on a roasting rack). I was afraid this would be dry as I used a fryer (bird) but this was juicy and delicious. My hubby is not a big chicken fan but he ate this up. Wonderful recipe which I will use again and again but will make 2 next time so we have lots of leftovers. I would double the rub recipe for two birds. It really doesn't get any easier than this!
