Hawaiian Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I made this as written except I used the dipping sauce as the marinade and added 3 cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 cup of honey and pineapple chunks, then baked it at 375* for 20 minutes, instead of grilling. I poured everything over white rice before serving. This was pretty good!

Bisquick® Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was very good but I agree with the member named Cookies...its very dry! I think next time I'll add more milk or maybe I'll add apples to give it some moistness. I will definitely make this again...very easy!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
These are so cute! My family loved them! Its a lot of prep and detail work, but its worth it! I highly recommend using a pastry bag because when I used a sandwich bag, the bag got a blow out! I made scarfs out of jarred roasted red peppers cut into very thin strips. I also flavored the cream cheese with dry ranch dressing as suggested by others. These are so cute that you hate to eat them! They do taste good though! Tastes just like penguin!

Roasted Spicy Garbanzo Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This is 5 stars if you let the beans bake til hard and crunchy! This will take over an hour. Check them every 20 minutes and shake the tray to let them dry evenly. I seasoned mine to suit my own taste. I coated the beans with the olive oil then sprinkled them with seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, a pinch of cayenne pepper and about 1/2 tsp. of smoked paprika. With these seasonings and baking them til they were hard and crunchy, made this taste like you were eating crispy fried chicken skin! So good!

Pecan Turtles® Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This was very good! I used 2 cups of flour as suggested by other members but I think it would of been better as written because this made the mixture a little dry. I crushed the pecans because it didn't seem to be enough to cover the entire pan if they were left whole. I would consider this to be a candy because of how sweet and rich the bars are.

Simple Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I can't believe I had to make a change to this one...its only 2 ingredients!!! Lol! But here goes... I made this with 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. I'm using this to make Limoncello Martini's and thats what the martini recipe said to do! Turned out great! Tastes just like sweet water!;)

Calamari

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
I always use the following ingredients to season the batter so that blandness is never a problem...2 cloves crushed garlic, 1 cup flour seasoned with 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. baking powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Add enough water to this mixture to make a slightly thick batter. Mix thoroughly. Dip the calamari rings into this batter then coat with plain (unseasoned) breadcrumbs. Then deep fry (in small batches) for 1-2 minutes at about 375*F. Serve with marinara sauce.

Strufoli III

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
This is basically the same recipe thats been in our family for generations...except we add 2 tbls. shortening, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 tsp. baking powder and 2 tsp. whiskey when making the dough. Instead of forming the dough into balls we roll out the dough and cut it into thin strips. You can fry this or even bake it. Both ways are just as good! We coat it with honey and sprinkle with non pareils. We always make these for Christmas!

Easy Chili II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Instead of chili beans I used kidney beans. I had to add the following ingredients to give the chili more flavor. Salt, cumin, cilantro, chili powder, bay leaf, garlic and some dry red wine. This helped to make it a delicious mild type of chili. I served it over polenta with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

Wine Cookies (Original Italian)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
This is a very good Italian cookie. I thought it wouldn't be sweet enough because there isn't much sugar in the recipe, but it did have a nice sweetness to it. I used a Chianti wine (very dry) and I rolled the cookies in turbinado (raw) sugar instead of granulated sugar. My cookies were slightly purple before cooking. Then they turned a nice golden brown while they were baking. The taste reminds me of a really good sweet bread. This is a very unique cookie and I'm glad I tried it!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was very good! I made some changes to make it lower in fat. I used 1/2 corn oil and 1/2 applesauce instead of butter. I didn't have any molasses so I used lite pancake syrup. I also used dark brown sugar instead of white. I doubled the spices as suggested by another member and I agree that it needed it. I also agree to bake it for 45 minutes instead of 1 hour. It was perfectly moist enough. It sliced up beautifully. I topped it with my own recipe for a spiced drizzle.

Chinese New Year Chocolate Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This was very good! I didn't want to make a large amount of this recipe so I used 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1 cup of crushed chow mein noodles and 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts instead of peanuts. I omitted the butterscotch chips. I used a heaping coffee spoon as a measure and dropped it onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I sprinkled it with grated coconut. This made 15 pieces of candy.

Candy Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
White chocolate and pretzels are always good, especially when you add in cranraisins! Sorry Eagle Brand...I didn't use your sweetened condensed milk, because I didn't have any. The candy was great even without it!

Buffalo Chicken Wings III

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
These were the best Buffalo wings I ever made! My entire family loved them! I took the advice of "Ladybug" and coated the wings in a mixture of 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. This worked great in keeping the wing sauce nicely coated on the wings. I also took the advice of a reviewer named Jen and used half the butter and added honey (3Tbls.) to the sauce mix. I only used 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper and I'm glad I did because it was just spicy enough without being to over-powering. I didn't have any problems with too much grease in the pan after baking the wings. I baked them on parchment paper for easier clean up. The baking temperature and times were perfect. I served the wings with "Ranch Dipping Sauce" a recipe from this site. I'll be making my wings like this from now on!

Ranch Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This was very salty, so I added more mayo and plain yogurt. It was a perfect dip for the "Buffalo Wings III" recipe, that I made from this site!

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
These cookies were perfect!!! I made them exactly as written except I used half the butter. I agree with Marcelle2...this recipe only made 40 cookies. Also, you don't have to dip the dough in milk to get the sesame seeds to stick. I did it with and without. The only difference is that the dough gets more heavily coated when dipped in the milk first, but its so much more of a mess! The photo shown is without dipping them in milk. You can see they have plenty of sesame seeds on them. This is a great recipe that I will pass down to my daughters!

Beef Bourguignon III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
This was very good. I made it as written except I marinated it overnight and I omitted the bacon. I served this over homemade polenta, which went perfectly with this recipe! The recipe didn't say when to add the salt and pepper, so I added it when I sauteed the beef and when I browned the mushrooms with the small onions.

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
These are the lightest and fluffiest rolls I ever had!!! I made it as written except I only used half the sugar. They were perfect! I had to keep adding flour to keep the dough from being too sticky during rolling. I made half the recipe which used 1 packet of yeast. I can't wait to make these for guests!

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I've been making my pork roasts like this for many years except I use parsley instead of rosemary and corn oil instead of olive oil. I also marinate the pork loin in all the ingredients for a least 3 hours or overnight. This is one of my families favorite ways to eat pork!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This is a good recipe with a few adjustments. I used only 3 tsp. baking powder instead of 3 1/2 and I omitted the salt. I'm glad I did because the pancakes would of been too salty! I think I'll also double the sugar next time because it needed a little more sweetness. I also added 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract. I double sifted the dry ingredients as suggested by another member. These pancakes cooked up nice and high! This recipe does not yield 8 servings...it made 11 pancakes...1/4 cup batter for each. I think most people would eat 3 per serving, so your lucky if you get 4 servings! Next time I'll double the amount because this is not enough for a family of 4. I'll definitely use this recipe from now on!
