Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Excellent recipe! My family LOVED them. In fact, they all said "no more store bought corn dogs". I read many of the reviews before I made them today. I made up my batter last night but I used 3 tablespoons of honey instead of the 1/4 cup of white sugar. Since we don't eat pork, I used chicken hot dogs & they were delicious. I did cook my hot dogs ahead of time (boiled them for approximately 7-9 minutes - basically before they plumped up/burst -don't boil too long!) I did use corn starch on the hot dogs as recommended so the batter would stick but in my opinion, as long as the hot dogs are dried off adequately, this is unnecessary with cold batter (also recommended) but feel free to use this method if you like. The best & most useful tips I took advantage of were to place the mixed batter in a cup (tall measuring cup for me) to dip the hot dogs in before frying (makes it so much easier, trust me (I tried the bowl method someone mentioned 1st, which is to place the dogs in the bowl holding the batter & let them sink. This does NOT work well w/cold batter. You end up having to push them down with a tool or your hands & it gets messy. Just spoon batter into a tall glass or measuring cup for dipping.) Lastly, the batter MUST BE COLD. It sticks better and it so much easier to handle. Since I made my batter the night before, it was nice & cold the next day already. If desired add a couple of tsp of cayenne pepper to your batter for spice (after you make the ones for the kids!)

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
Excellent recipe & the mayo made a difference. I like to add a little dried parsley tot he eggs after they are on my plate but that's optional.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I love this recipe. I have never made a pie crust before so I was nervous about it but this is so easy to follow & the pie was delicious. I used cold butter instead of shortening & scaled the recipe down for one single pie crust instead of having several crusts at once since I was making only one pie with a single crust. I made a strawberry meringue pie & it was fabulous. Pre-baking the crust by itself is a must. This is absolutely a keeper.
