Stained Glass Candy I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Totally loved this recipe. Totally!!! I followed to a T but used a mix of butter & rum extracts because I was using this recipe to simulate exploding bubbly out of a bottle and didn't add any food coloring because the color was just beautiful! I'm making this again!!! Word of advice, have an excellent candy thermometer!

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
I seriously loved this recipe, but ohh so rich with the chips ;-) the orange zest was mild, suttle and soo there, it really shined through lightly. I decided, I'll make again totally and ad more zest a few teaspoons of fresh squeezed orange juice...YUM! Outstanding so far as it is.

Sweet and Salty Toll House® Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Soo sorry Toll House, I seriously wanted to love THIS cookie, while I love a lot of the other recipes with your products in them, this was not one for them. The batter with all the ingredients was rockin' before I baked them, but after I baked the batch...not that great, they were more okay then anything, the peanuts and the potato chips were not great at all. And the potato chips lost their crunch and became rubbery. Really bummed over the recipe.

Becca's Barbequed Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This recipe~~very simple, but to me, it was okay, there is room for adjustments, while the kids totally liked it, hubby said it was fine(which means~~just okay). I was on the fence because even though it was hearty and thick, for I felt the sweetness over-powered the loads of meat. Either reduce the ground beef & let the beans shine OR add savory seasonings to cut the sweetness & let the meat shine. I'd have to play around with the recipe to customize the flavor combination if I make again. Thanks though.

White Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
In making this recipe, I goobered and forgot to chop the cherries, no biggie. All in all, easy recipe, but still to me tasted of more condensed milk with almond cherry flavor(and I'm basing this off of not eating much white style fudge). The batch should be lined in a pan with a sheet of foil that has been buttered, because I buttered my dish very well, but it was still very hard to remove out of a pan that wasn't lined so. I normally line all my pans with foil, if I'm making fudge, but didn't on this instance. While I thought it tasted nice & it's flavor was rich, I could see making again, however the person I made them for, loved it very much.

Kathie's Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I've not been a fan of grits, nearly my entire life. My sister made a recipe just like this one year for Christmas and I loved it, and was shocked it was loaded with grits...to my amazement, I have looked for similar recipes as the one she made and yet to find the exact one. This one was okay, slightly bland, but have more of a feeling it was the sausage and it was a bit soupy, not soupy running but like a soft yet thick pudding. If that makes sense. My sister's was a bit thicker and stood it's shape some. Possibly she used more eggs, but while this was simple, it was really nice, some tweaks are needed on our end with taste preferences. But again has a nice flavor.

Hearty Hot Dog Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
didn't care for this at all. The recipe tasted too acidic, salty and overly seasoning of spices and the cheese didn't bind well with the whole recipe. Won't make again. Sorry.

Addictive Texas Trash

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Totally loved this recipe. Great flavor, not to spicy on our end, with my kids being raised & from Texas...it is rather good. But for the love of Pete, hahahaha one needs to know, look at the size of the recipe, it's as huge as Texas too ;-) I never laughed soo hard because I saw the ingredients, went and bought ths stuff, not even looking at how big, each ingredient was...It was the funniest thing with my family, watching me go from one size bowl to a bigger one, then a bigger one then that and finally trying to find a pot or pan big enough to get all the ingredients in, in order to mix it all together. Glad no one snapped photos of me, standing on top of a dining room chair, over the Turkey Roaster, mixing it all by hand and saying the heck with it(funny way) and using the roaster to bake the whole batch in, all together verses, dividing it out in foil pans and clogging up the use of my oven...if you have a Nesco Roaster, it's perfect size and the recipe came out excellent!!! We will make this again and again. My husband thanks you. One thing I think I'll do next time, which is not a biggy, is leave out the Cheerios, those were a little tender soft, but it's not that big of a deal to give the recipe a 4 star, We sooo likey!

Ostakaka (Swedish Custard)

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
well...I'm not a fan. Sorry, I was excited about this recipe and since 4% cottage cheese is all I buy, I thought the ingredients would work well. Obviously it didn't. While easy to follow, the raw mix tasted rather nice. Yes, I'm one to taste something with raw eggs in it, I don't apologize for that, I totally need to know, if the flavor seems to be good. And it was. As I followed to a T, placed in the dish and put in the oven, I looked eagerly in the window of the oven, pacing back and forth, the smell seemed suttled and looked like it was right on track, but the baking took longer to get completely brown on top over an hour and a half, so I pulled it out, waited until it cooled. Used a cutting circle for the center(for presentation) and proceeded to scoop out a corner for tasting,but to see all this water like substance pouring out into the spot I scooped out & defungled over my dismay, it was just gushing with fluids. I thought ok?! tasted the portion I scooped, it was a bit odd in flavor & texture. Hubby also tried it and said, tastes like weird cheese. Yes, okay that's the thought as well, just not out loud. Each one of my kids, said, "we don't like it. What is it?" Needless to say, I went back and looked & looked over the recipe a dozen times, thinking what is wrong with this recipe, there is no water in it, other then in the cottage cheese..possibly should have strained the cottage cheese with cheese cloth 1st? Not sure, won't make again. Sorry.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
After making this batch twice, here's my advice...1. don't add 3 1/2 cups of marshmallows~~way to much and doesn't help the overall binding of the recipe, 2 cups is perfect. 2. the butterscotch/peanut butter mix, needs to cool slightly before for adding to the noodles and marshmallows, the marshmallows melted like crazy, making the recipe looks webby, hard to spoon out in small portions and not appealing...Suggestion: combine all ingredients, leaving out the marshmallows until all is combined then add to the mix so it ensures the marshmallows stay intack. My 1st batch was just horrible and followed it to a T, it resulted in not soo good or appealing treats and was disappointed at the marshmallow stringy-ness everywhere. 2nd batch way better as I made completely sure, to reduce the marshmallows, allowed the mix to cool a few minutes before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. With in mind you should have a successful batch.

Reindeer Snack Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
We liked this and it was totally easy to make, I like recipes like this. As not in my favor when getting the simple ingredients for this recipe at this time of year....shelves were empty. SO subbing Cheddar Bugles for the regular and the Duo Cheez-It's for the plain...are the adjustments I had to make...not by choice. But it still worked. I could say this could use some salt or garlic powder added at the end would be really good, not much but just a little. And knowing how well this recipe worked and the family liked it, I think personally using cheddar bugles, I would reserve the cheddar bugles(or put aside) follow through the rest of the recipes as written and add the cheddar bugles after words to get that cheesy flavor. But again, good recipe, good flavor.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
For me, this didn't hit the spot of a macaroon I was tasting in my mind. This was easy to make, super simple, but I found them to be to extremely sticky and wet and when they baked, they spread. While the kids liked them, I found them okay.

One Two Three Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
Normally, I don't look at reviews, but in this case I did after I made one batch. There is 2 things wrong with this recipe during the 1st round. #1, when melting 1/2 cup of butter with the semi-sweet chips it was very oil like(super shiny), so I proceeded to mix the frosting with the chocolate mix and to this I did follow to a T, it looked not gritty but not super lumpy either, like it didn't bind well, I checked it with a finger test and it wasn't either, just looked it but when chilled you could see whiteness over the top of the batch indicating too much butter. #2, by buttering a 9x13 pan and pouring the mixture into it...made the batch spread rather thin, the batch thickness was barely 1/2 inch thick. Wrong size pan for such a small batch, this is best utilizing an 8x8 size pan, nothing any larger. Now having said that, I looked at the recipe again and then the reviews, consulted a friend and we agreed, while it tasted more of chocolate frosting and tasty, this was slightly a miss. I proceeded with a 2nd batch that I decreased the batch to 1/4 cup of butter...used an 8x8 pan and it was a complete and utterly successful. Looking and tasting much more like a rich fudge, then the 1st batch. It was far better then the 1st batch as written. Still quick and easy-peasey, do take the suggestion of others and myself, decrease the butter to half as written and use a smaller pan. And you will come back to this easy recipe again and again.

Cranberry Chicken III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
The recipe was great! The flavor was suttle to me and I'll make again. It will totally be on the grilling rotation. Plan on doing this with plain chicken breast and trying whole cranberry sauce next time to see which way is better...thank you though ;-)

Gluten Free Rice Chicken Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
This was fabulous! The recipe itself was very delicious and savory. Could see making this again. Husband said he's had it before and I giggled because I'd never made this recipe before and it's a really good verison on Rice-a-roni, but totally worth making. And I mean totally. Will be making for Christmas dinner this year for the non glutens in my family ;-) TY

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
While excited about this recipe but still on the fence...I went forth. 2 of my children liked this, my son didn't, my husband said the bacon was good but the green beans were off putting. I had to agree as well. The sweetness added to the beans was totally wrong for us. Sugared green beans just wasn't right. Won't be making this recipe, believe it should be savory....not sweet. Sorry, won't be making these again. NOT with brown sugar.

Savory Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I can't rate this very well. I myself could only take a small bite....In that bite it was not right and was off putting. While 2 of my daughter's tried in and said it was sweet like an apricot, I was like what? the flavors that are combined with the squash, are not up to par with the pairing with the squash. The squash's sweetness is overpowering and you couldn't taste anything else. I didn't like this at all and neither did my husband and son. Sorry followed to a T and won't be made again, my apologies.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Not a bad through together in a pinch and don't want to do a lot of slaving over the stove recipe. My husband and I liked it, while it was just a tad on the powerful spicy side for our children, however I used up some cooked chicken verses the can and just measured out the amount stated in the recipe to match. Can see making it again.
