Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This is a great recipe & it really isn't difficult (like some people said in other reviews)it just takes a little patience & time & a few tweaks!I did use less cream cheese because I read so many reviews saying it was too moist so I used all of the cream cheese block except about 1/4 cup.I used semi-sweet chips & made my own doubleboiler by filling a large pot halfway with water & keeping it on low heat & placing a small pot inside (Be careful to NOT let water get in your chocolate-it will ruin it!) & melted the chips that way. It was pretty thick so I added about 1 tbsp of crisco to thin it out. Once you roll the balls of the oreo-cream cheese mixture, put them in the FREEZER for at least 20 minutes. Then use a toothpick to pick them up & do a quick dip in the chocolate & then tap the toothpick on the side of the pan about 30 times or until it stops drizzling. Then, to put the truffle on the wax paper carefully shake it off the toothpick (don't use you're fingers or a fork or else it will make it look ugly!) & it will evenutally fall off. You can fill the little toothpick hole by dipping the toothpick in the chocolate and dabbing it on the hole and it gives it a pretty swirly top on the truffle (see my pic)! Do as many as you can until the balls need to be chilled again. If they get too warm they will start to crumble when you are trying to dip them so keep them chilled. When you give them as a gift just tell people to keep them refridgerated. They are absolutely divine!!!

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I read all the most negative and positive reviews for this recipe and I was a little nervous that I was gonna screw this up since it was my first time making caramels and because so many people had problems. I actually had to use whole milk instead of evaporated milk because I realized I forgot it and I already had all the sugar and butter in the pot but the recipe STILL worked! I think the key here is not to over cook it and not to undercook it. Don't turn the heat up too high because that will scorch the caramel. Sugar burns really easy. I am at a very high altitude so I thought to be safe I will stop the cooking at 220 degrees and they turned out perfect. I used raspberry extract instead of vanilla. They are absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing!

Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I haven't ever cooked a curry dish myself before but I've had several at restaurants so this was kind of a experimental recipe. It was very good and had a nice texture and flavor. I, like many other reviewers, changed it up a bit. I didn't have cream on hand so I used whole milk. I used chicken breast cut up into bite-sized pieces and I also added some chopped bell pepper the last few minutes of cooking. I agree with one of the other reviews I read- it needs more curry powder than what the recipe calls for and also some sort of vegetable to add more texture. Overall this is a good recip with a little bit of tweaking. Thanks for sharing!

Venison Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I used Elk instead of deer steak. I also took note of some of the recommendations from the other reviewers. I used Italian Breadcrumbs with the Parmesan cheese and I added a little salt to the mix. For the dipping sauce I also added honey in with the brown sugar and mustard. This was VERY good. I think the dipping sauce is was made it so good for the kiddos. I am not a big fan of Elk or Deer meat so I am always trying new ways to prepare it and this is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing MBC!

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
I didn't have the fresh basil or the provolone so I just used mozzarella on top of the sauce. It still turned out very good. I've tried a few other Chicken Parm recipes and this is my fav. Next time I will be sure to have the basil and provolone and I am sure it will make it even better.

I also used butter instead of shortening. I had no cream of tartar but the biscuits still came out fluffy and flavorful. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Chef John's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I've made many blueberry muffin recipe's and this is my favorite one. When I first made this recipe and did a taste test on the first batch of warm muffins, it was good but not much different than other recipes. It was after putting my muffins in the fridge and having one with my coffee the next morning that I realized these were a better muffin. They were so moist and even more full of flavor the next day. My husband and kids really liked them and said they were my best muffin yet. I think I will stick to this recipe. Thanks Chef John :-)

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
These are a nice soft, dense brownie (not cake-like) and they are rich and delicious. I made mini-brownie bites by using a mini-muffin pan and sprinkled mini-m&m's on them. My husband and kids loved them! If you are looking for a classic brownie recipe, this would be it. :-)

Chocolate Cookie Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I made this recipe with mini-m&m's in the cookie dough for a cookie-pizza for my 5 year old's birthday. I didn't do any of the toppings, just added a few extra mini-m&m's on top to make it look pretty. It turned out just like a large cookie. Very good :) I do have a tip- be careful when baking it- it is very easy to over bake it and have your edges get too brown.
