Vinegar Based BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I am so glad to finally have this recipe!! I haved been hooked on this stuff for decades at the mercy of the bbq joints. I cooked a Boston butt in the crock pot all day, but only added salt, ground black pepper, about a tbsp of brown sugar and a cup of vinegar for cooking. I have a spice hater at the table, so I mixed the sauce when I started the roast and served it only as a side sauce.The pork was delish with just the mild vinegar, but goes insane good with the kick! Thank you for sharing this awesome favorite!!

Wow! I'd forgotten how good these were. I used honey bunches of oats and it added interest. Instead of the messing cookie drop system, I dumped it all on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and flattened it down fairly even. I popped it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, then just broke it into pieces. It is rich, but that's exactly how we like it!

Ooey Gooey Breakfast Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I actually messed up and bought the precooked frozen dinner rolls, Sister Schubert's. Otherwise I followed the recipe, only skipping the dough work, and using a 9x9. I would still give it 5 stars even with my errors! About 3 minutes of prep time, and I only cooked it for 20-25 min with these rolls, and gooey deliciousness! Next time I'll try the right way, but I dig the speedy perks of the wrong way.

Rich Butterscotch Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I will be making these often and for everyone! So amazingly delicious! The butterscotch crust is genius and devine. Next time I'm going to try making an extra 1/2 batch of just the crust, so I'm not hunting thru the bars for the best ones with the most crust :-) And I may try the pecans on top, instead of mixed in the cream cheese, just because I didn't like how they softened and swelled. So happy to have found this recipe...thanks for sharing!

Waffles I

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Was ok. My son is used to waffles made from buttermilk pancake mix, but I wanted improvement. I really don't feel these were an improvement. He obviously didn't either, since he didn't want to finish a single waffle. Usually he'll down 2-3. Bland flavor and wished they were crispier on the outside. I will keep looking.

Eagle Brand® Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
I agree with Rochele99. Very so-so. I was hoping the eaglebrand would sweeten it more. I decided not to use them for the party.

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
We loved the recipe as written, but over time it has evolved to perfection for us. Following the advise of others, I use a pinch of baking soda, a few shakes of salt, 1 cup brown sugar and the remaining 1/2 cup in white, only 1 tsp vanilla, and replace the nuts with extra chocolate chips. Last time I used 3/4 c chocolate chips and 3/4 cup butterscotch chips...yum! Haven't tried dipping them yet, because I think they are perfect as is, and I find almond bark to be much too waxy when frozen. I love this recipe!!

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
We loved this, and I would give it five stars if the baking time weren't so far off. I adjusted the recipe and bake time after reading reviews. Used one whipped stiff egg white, 1 cup brown sugar packed, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 & 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp butter extract and 4 cups pecan halves. Spread it out onto non stick foil, baked 10 minutes. As it is extremely gooey at first, I stirred and dumped it all onto a new sheet of non stick foil before returning to oven. Baked 20 more minutes stirring after the first 10. They came out perfect after a full 30 minutes at 275 degrees. Cooled slightly, dumped onto wax paper to finish cooling and broke apart clumps before they hardened. Then I jarred them and fancied up the jars with ribbon and gift tags for delicious Christmas gifts. May be our new holiday gift tradition! Irresistible!!
