Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I used cold butter instead of shortening, and only 3/4 cup of milk. I put the self rising flour in my kitchenaid with the diced butter and used the paddle to cut the butter in. Then I kept it on low speed and slowly poured the milk in until it came together. That's how I only used 3/4 cup. I dusted the counter with all purpose flour and patted flat, folded over, patted flat, folded over a couple of times. I think the all purpose flour keeps it from getting tough. I used my medium sized cutter, brushed the tops with melted butter before and after baking. They were baked at 425 convection for about 15 minutes. Both my husband and I thought they were delicious both times I've made them.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
very good. I read reviews ahead of time, and cut the flour to 4 cups since I was planning to pat into a pan and cut into bars. I dropped the temp since I have a convection oven but then baked them again at the recommended temp the next day because they just didn't bake all the way through at the lower temp, maybe because they were bars and thicker than cookies. I did add a 1/2 tsp salt and some vanilla. absolutely addicting and sooooo simple.

Super Simple Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
First I added just a little bit of milk to get the las bit of flour out of the bottom of the bowl. then I sprinkled all-purpose flour on the counter and gently patted the dough into a circle and folded it over a few times to keep them from falling apart too easily. I used a heart shaped cutter to cut them out. These were fantastic and we will be making them again.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
This is AWESOME! I will definitely be making this again. I left out the cinnamon, didn't sugar the fruit, and added sliced almonds to the crisp. For fruit, I used about fresh peaches, cherries, and raspberries. Served with fresh vanilla whipped cream. I baked it a little longer than 40 minutes in a convection oven set at 425.

Spiced Eggnog Poundcake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This recipe as directed is worth 3 stars. I got it to 5 stars by using these ingredients with my basic poundcake technique instead. Cream the butter and sugar, alternate adding the eggs & eggnog with the dry ingredients, ending with liquids. Its very yummy with dried cranberries or dried cherries added. I also used spiced rum, about 1/2 cup.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I followed the directions to a T and it was great. used for a black forest cake- poured liqueur on each layer, then filled with whipped cream and canned black cherries. Finished by icing with whipped cream. All my coworkers loved it! I will be using this recipe often.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This is a good basic recipe. A friend requested chocolate chip cookies without nuts, something I haven't made in about 10 years. This is the third recipe I tried, and the only one good enough to keep. Definitely a keeper.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
I followed this recipe exactly. This is a great recipe. I made the whole batch and put in freezer for 30 minutes. I rolled half of it out with flour, and cut it into small hearts. I eggwashed them and sprinkled with sugars for Valentine's Day. My coworkers loved them! One pan got a little darker than I thought would be good, but they are still soooo yummy. I ate several of the darker ones with my morning coffee. This is going to be in my regular cookie rotation now! Really, really awesome.

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I was in a hurry this morning to get something made that is easy enough for my husband to finish since he gets home before I do. After glancing over the other ratings, I could see this is a very versatile recipe. I omitted the onions, added dried minced onions, garlic salt, oregano, lots of freshly goudn pepper, and substituted cream of chicken for cream of mushroom with roasted garlic. I used the refridgerated pie crusts, the mixed veggies from Costco's freezer section, and extra turkey from Thanksgiving's fried bird. Left it in the fridge all day for my husband to bake when he got home, and I came home to a delicious and tremendously easy dinner. This is definitely going into our winter dinner rotation. THANKS!!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2005
absolutely wonderful! I changed two things. I used 10x sugar in the whipped cream, and just enough to barely sweeten it, and I added about a teaspoon of orange extract to the cake. its perfect! I love getting this cake in restaurants where its served with fresh strawberried and mango, now I can have it at home and its just as good! thanks for this great recipe!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
I followed the instructions exactly and it was really quite delicious and very simple to make. also we didn't think it was too salty. I used some corn starch to thicken the sauce some on the stove top afterwards and served it with mashed potatoes and veggies. Will definitely be making this again.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2003
these were very tasty and easy to make. I followed the suggestion to use a whole cup of peanut butter instead of 2/3 cup, butter instead of shortening, and 1 cup light brown sugar + 1/4 cup regular sugar instead of 1 1/4 c light brown. I used all natural peanut butter- nothing added, just ground peanuts. The cookies are very good, not too sweet. I used silpats and they lifted off perfectly after letting them cool 5 min. Since I use convection bake I lowered the temp to 330 and baked them for 9-10 minutes. will definitely be making these again!

Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
My husband and I love this recipe, although I did adapt it to use fresh broccoli, 8 oz each finely shredded cheddar and mozzarella, and half of a rotisserie roasted chicken. I have made it several times and it is one leftover that is gladly eaten. It really does freeze well. I make several small casseroles at a time.

Basic Bread Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2002
I used challah bread because I forgot to buy the bread for this, plus I added dried cranberries and toasted walnuts to this for Christmas 2001. It was really, really easy and tasted great. I plan on using this same recipe with different variations for next year.

Black Treacle Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2001
These scones are very good. I decreased the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon for my fiance and they are still very flavorful. Easy to make- I used my KitchenAid mixer with excellent results. A quick favorite!
