Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
OMG so good, it's light and easy to bite! I sent this out with our Christmas cards and already received several outstanding complements. My family is requesting more =) This was my first time making brittle. Following several reviewers suggestions and some of my own I'll sum up the helpful tips to improve the recipe which I used. I boiled a separate pot of water to clean with after cooking. Got all ingredients measured out ahead of time. I doubled the recipe (worked fine for me) and added 1 tsp. vanilla with the baking soda and butter. I used roasted peanuts so i added them in after 250 degrees. I warmed the pan ahead of time in the oven, and didn't use forks to manipulate the soft brittle, i just tired to pour over pan evenly using a circle motion (where possible). This was to keep the bubbles from popping which make it light and easy to chew. I sprinkled chocolate chips over it (about 1/2 - 1 bag =) while still warm. Then stuck it in the freezer to cool. It was a little greasy and after making this twice, I'll consider trying a parchment paper lined pan to pour onto. Also, it did seem a little sticky after drying, it would be great to know how to prevent that. Perhaps the chocolate made it greasier? All in all very easy to make, and better than anything from the store. I can't wait to make more!

DELICIOUS!!!! The whole family liked it! I marinated for maybe 40 minutes, and only had smart balance oil instead of peanut oil, everything else I did just like the recipe said! I'm sure I'll be making this at least a few times a month! sooooo goood

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Fabulous!!! This reminds me of home! Based on the recommendations of others, I add a ham hock and cook in the broth for 30 minutes first ( I just used a crock pot on high to heat broth and hock while prepping everything) I also added 1T brown sugar, a few pickled jalapenos. I cook onions, garlic, then greens in pan until greens are nice and wilted and then throw it all in the crock pot on high for around 4 hours. The length of time is up to you, I usually try it to see if it's good. I think the longer it cooks the better!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Great start for a recipe, I did make the changes most others suggest. No water, subbed salsa for tomato sauce, green chiles for green bell peppers, added a little cayenne pepper, and used the red enchilada sauce recipe (from this website) instead of taco sauce. Everyone who's had them loves them! This time I am going to try adding a little cream cheese to the inside.

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I love this stuff! I have made it twice and both times my bananas weren't very ripe but it was still delicious! I used a potato masher to mash the bananas and love how it turns out. I sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top before baking mmm mmm good!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I added more zuicchini, probably around 1 cup. By the way, the dough really gets easier to work with after you add the zucchini

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Delicious cake, my family loves it! I make this every year now. I didn't have vanilla recently so I used the same amount of butterscotch liqueur, it worked like a charm and was wonderful. I also add about a 1/3 cup extra pumpkin puree. I had problems with the cake sticking or cooking a bit crispy in the past, and tried cooking spray, wax paper etc. This time I just greased the pan with vegetable oil on a paper towel it didn't get crispy and i just had to help it out with the spatula a bit.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
This was delicious and everyone loved my enchiladas! I followed some of the advice of others and added a bay leaf, used tomato paste not tomato sauce, and used chicken broth not water.

I love this recipe! I've made it a few times, the last few times, I thought it was a little bland, so I will try some of the others suggestions this time to give it more flavor (worcestershire sauce, garlic, etc)

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Delicious, and I can't wait to make it again. I didn't measure perfectly and had used my own taco seasoning, and also had to make the corn bread from scratch since I didn't have a package. I think it's hard to go wrong with this keeper.
