Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
Beyond fantastic. I'm pretty new to yeast so I was a bit scared. Also, my oven isn't the greatest so I think next time I'll leave these in for about 25 min. Since I don’t have a bread machine here is what I did: 1.Sift flower into bowl and set aside. 2.Proof the yeast with the water and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes until frothy. 3.Combine the butter, pudding mix, milk, egg, and salt. Mix with a mixer. 4.Mix in the yeast mixture to the mixture in #2. 5.Start to add the flour slowly. I added it about a half a cup at a time sifting it again. (I found that no matter what I make, it always seems to come out better when I double sift the flour.) I used the mixer until the dough got too dense to mix anymore. 6.Knead dough for about 8-10 min until it forms a ball. 7.Place ball in lightly greased bowl and roll to make sure the entire ball is lightly greased. This keeps the top part from becoming dry. Cover lightly and let rise for about an hour. I let my rise on the stove having the oven on a low setting. 8.After the dough rises, roll out into rectangle (mine was a little bigger then 17X10) For the inside part of the rolls, instead of using the given instructions I took the tips of some other reviews and did the following: I mixed together one stick of butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon. (I didn’t use the pecans). I mixed all together with a mixer until it formed a paste-like material. I then just spread it as evenly as I coul

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I LOVED IT. The chips were awesome. The salsa was refreshing. I used rasberry preserves that I heated up a bit in the microwave so that it would be easier to mix it. I didn't add any of the additional sugar and it was sweet enough. I changed the servings to 15 and ended up stilll only using 2 apples. I also added a mango into the mix for color. TIP: mix the preserves in with the kiwis and apples and then gently fold in the raspberries so you don't smash them.

Grapefruit Margaritas

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Graet recipe! You can't taste the booze but it is there! I used a can of frozen lime, lemon, orange mix (no limeade at the store and mama wanted a cocktail NOW!) so I added a splash of lime juice to compensate. I rimmed my glass with a lime and then sugar. Thanks for the dangerous concoction ;) I'll be making these all summer long!

Apple Pie Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
HELLOOOO tipsy!! THis drink is awesome. I made a batch for my Thanksgiving and it was gone! I used one gallon of apple juice and 3 smaller contatiners of apple cider so I had a little more than 2 gallons of apple juice/cider. I also added a healthy splash of orange juice and some nutmeg, allspice, and whole cloves. A great recipe! I plan on bottling this for Christmas and giving it as a gift! Thanks for the recipe. Nice amount of booze for a party for about 30 bucks!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I loved this recipe and wll make it again and again. I halved the butter/feta cheese/CC mixture but ended up using the whole 8oz of CC because it was too salty ( i used salted butter). The pine nuts I toasted in a pan. I chopped the sin dried tomatoes and tried to remove as much of the oil as possible. I used vodka instead of the vermouth. Also - I didn't measure the pesto, nuts or tomatoes. Next time I will try to use a less oily pesto. I served this with assorted crackers. Thanks so much for the recipe. This one is a keeper.

Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Loved this recipe! I sliced the potatoes instead of cubing them. I used the ham that comes in the cans (found next to the SPAM since that's how my boyfriends mom made hers). I fried up the ham cubes to crisp them up a bit. I sauteed the onion in the butter (used an entire onion) and then added the flour to make a roux and then the milk. I added more than a cup of the cheese. I shredded half of a block of cheddar and half of a block of pepper jack....and those would be the 8oz blocks you get next to the already shredded cheese. Added pepper, paprika and some cayenne for kick. Thanks for the great recipe! Brought back some good memories for my boyfriend of his childhood! We'll be making this again soon.

BBQ Bacon Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
LOVE LOVE LOVE this dip. Made it as is. Its perfect. I let the ranch and cream cheese get aquainted for a couple of hours and then i assembled the rest. UPDATE I made this with cheap bbq sauce and ohhhh no. Make sure you use a thick bbq sauce. the thin stuff makes the consistency weird.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I made this for my boyfriend who loved it and said it was like the salad his mom used to make. We added mini marshmellows and added about 1 tablespoon more sugar to the dressing! Thanks for helping me recreate a childhood dish for him!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
I've been using LTH's recipe for some time now and its my staple. I have subbed an egg for the milk without any problems. Also, I never have seasoned bread crumbs so I just up the Italian seasoning (can't tell you by how much cause I don't measure this recipe anymore). If I'm just making this for myself, I add some additional sriacha for more heat (or if I don't have the Frank's at home) I bake these on a slightly greased cookie sheet and flip halfway. These freeze great cooked or raw. Oh and I've used 80/20, 90/10, and 95/5 beef with these and they've all turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Broiled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I used old bay and garlic salt to season the creature. I watched this video to show me how to remove the meat before broiling. I also brushed him with butter a coupld of times while broiling as my broiler is a super broiler and i was scared of burning my expensive piece of seafood. Good luck and thanks for sharing. PS this was my first time ever making lobster and it turned out great. the BF said "the heck with restaurants..i'd rather come here"

Habanero Hellfire Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Great recipe! It's got some good kick to it. The only thing I changed was upping the spices to my personal tastes and adding an entire onion. Thanks for the recipe. We'll be having this one again.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Loved this pie!! Added 2 cans of the 10 oz milk and that was plenty (3 cups would have been too much). I also added about 2 tbsp extra of the lime juice. Baked for 10 min!! I didnt use fresh key limes but key lime juice that was from FL and 'all natural'. I'd spring for the stuff thats a little more expensice and not just 99 cent fake lime juice.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I can't tell you all how good this was!!!! Let's just say that for Thanksgiving I had about 20 different things to eat and this was the only thing that was completely gone. Half the people there said this was their favorite. Here's what I did different: I used 12 noodles instead of 9 and dipped them in boiling water as some of the reviews said the noodles were too hard after baking. I also added more flour since my sauce was not thickening (about 2 tablespoons more). I also added one large sauteed onion to the garlic mix. This dish was beyond good and I'll be making it again and again. I was a little nervous about the heavy cream on top but it was great. I baked the lasagna for about 45 min total and then let it sit for a cpouple of hours (to be timed with dinner) and then warmed it up in the over before serving. BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO!!!!! UPDATE: Made this again. I used a Vidallia onion. It worked wonderfully. For the topping I used half and half and just stired some salt into it (didn't have a mixer where I was baking). You don't lose any bit of flavor with that sub.
