Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Thank-you Charlotte. This recipe is the perfect balance of flavor and flakiness. If you are having any problems with making it, it's not the recipe. Crusts are often notorious for being touchy. So many variables can affect it, but once you've mastered it- it's all down hill. Everything is written here that you need to know in making this successful. For rolling out: I always use two pieces of wax paper. I doubled the recipe for two crusts and still came out perfect. However, my food processor was very full. My crust search stops here. I liked the ease of using the food processor too.

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Wow an incredible strawberry taste and delicious frosting! I won't ever lose this recipe. I'm thinking maybe some other fruit may work too in the same way...with the cooking down puree principle. Thank-you Candice.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Very tasty. The second time making it we added some paprika - which gave even more dimension to the flavor.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
These give the bakery a run for their money. A real joy to make and delicious. The muffins stick to the top of muffin pan where crumb topping melts down, even after spraying this area with pan coating. I used a bent cake spatula to carefully loosen this and then remove them. I always dust my fruit in flour before adding to muffin batter to prevent them from sinking. Not sure if it's necessary with this recipe, but it has always been a habit of mine. These turned out tall, tasty and something you can take pride in.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
As the first reviewer suggested, I sprinkled with combined seasoning mix. Also soaked corn with husks for awhile before grilling. This is almost heaven food. My husband said this was the best corn he's ever had. I agree. For me, the lime squeezed on takes it over the top.

Icelandic Pepper Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
For a different take: Can sprinkle on a bit of a cinnamon-sugar mixture and bake. But very good as is too.

Simple Fried Morel Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Morels are so packed with flavor, they don't need a bunch of help otherwise. This is the way we always fix them, (except slight difference) I deep fry in 350 oil. Some people I know dips them in beaten egg and fine cracker crumbs. I have fried in butter, but I like the results with oil. Could always drizzle a bit of melted butter over them after frying, if desired. The most I've ever found is enough to fill a grocery sack. If you've found some I'm jealous.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
I've made this countless times. I just use garlic powder for the onion powder and some cayenne for red pepper flakes. Used regular salt for sea salt. This is so easy to measure out because it's such a forgiving recipe. Delicious! We think it's better than store bought packages.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Yes, these are right up there with the best. I followed the recipe exactly using the whole cup of milk. I didn't knead them, but I did pat dough into about 1/2 inch thickness and lightly rolled (a time or two) to get smoother tops. May have to push sides of dough back to get the 1/2 thickness if needed. I cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter and placed close together. Around the 13 minute baking mark, I spooned some melted real butter over tops and broiled until just golden. Caution to new cooks doing this step; they can burn on you fast. Please keep a very close watch. Lastly, buttered inside with a little of the melted butter. Adding the butter like this makes the color improve and more flavorful. I'm going to experiment later on with some flavor combinations with them. These biscuits hold up well to make a good sausage sandwich. Thank-you for the recipe!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Restaurant quality fish. I lightly sprinkled both side with Old bay too. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Didn't have a problem with the topping coming off. Very pretty results too. I'm going to try fresh trout sometime with this recipe. I know they say no cheese with fish...but this works folks. Tip: Spray pan with pan coating.

We really enjoyed this... made it with homemade smoked kielbasa. I added more spice as recipe suggests (to taste.) Thanks Cindy... it's a keeper.

Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I made this recipe the regular way of making bread with two rises instead of the refrigerator method. I needed them quicker. The rolls were soft and well liked. The kiddos said they were perfecto!

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I use this wonderful recipe for both focaccia and pizza crust. For a different take: Roll out 1/2 of the dough as thin as possible on a floured surface and cut with a 3 inch round biscuit cutter. Repeat. Add some of your favorite goodies. The two roll-out method just makes easier handling (for me anyway). By doing this the little crusts really brown beautifully and looks excellent to serve. I alway spray with non-stick pan coating.

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
I've made many loaves of bread in my day. I wanted a recipe for something lighter and softer, this is it. Very very good! I have some tips: (1.) I warm my oven (not hot though - check it in a minute or two) to make a proofing box for rising. Then I turn it off and put in covered dough letting it double as directed each time. (2.) Use an electric knife to get good clean cuts for slicing. You can really cut thinner, even slices this way (if desired) helps when you want to eat healthier or for presentations sake. You will need to apply a little pressure to start cutting because the loaf is so soft. (3.) Lastly when bread is cooked and just slightly warm, I wrap in plastic helps to keep a softer crust. Personal preferences: I'm adding another tb. of sugar next time. Also I'm cutting the salt to 2 tsps as well.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This recipe was thorough in timing if you follow the amounts given. I used fresh trout which was very good. Also used 1 teas fish sauce and a cup of water for clam juice. Can use creole seasoning for old bay if need be in a pinch. This was a favorite dish of my husbands. I left out the mushrooms didn't have any.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This recipe handled very well. I loved how the roll-ups looked in the pan. I cooked some red bell pepper to throw in the sauce and this gave it another flavor boost. However, it would be good just as written. Next time I too will add some chicken chunks browned in butter. Nice company dish.

Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I mistakenly added the whole bag of red hots to the recipe, but happy accident. It was delicious and we also made a pork sauce glaze out of the jelly that was very good.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I've used a similiar recipe like this one for years. Our recipe differs by using evaporated milk and no butter. I use a grooved rolling pin and can cut out noodles in no time. Some pickled Jalapenos goes extremely well with them. Cajun spice is another great flavor to sprinkle on them for a change as well.
