Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Another holiday treat to make with your kids. Super fun and super easy. Be careful on the time in the oven as one batch of mine I didn't watch closely enough got super hard. However. I'll be making these every year. This was fun and tasty and the kids really enjoyed having them.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Super easy! Totally kid friendly treat for them to help make. My daughter made the 1st batch with ease and then I made a 2nd batch. Went over so well, and super fast. We used Rolo(R) candies and not the caramel chocolate Kisses. I'd make these again and again. SO yummy!! And addictive.

Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Back home, divinity is one of the key candy treats my momma would make every year. So this year I dabbled in making it for the 1st time by myself and was rather pleased, it worked out. I choose not to use walnuts as the option because pecans was always the "it" nut in divinity for my family. This recipe, made me nervous but once I got started, there was no stopping. The most difficult part for me was making sure that I was pouring at a slow steady thin stream into my kitchen aid mixer. The end result, was the best when my oldest said it was just like my mom's. Mine were very light but held it's shape, fluffy with that nut crunch texture and pretty darn good looking. I had no problem with set up and totally whip to my hearts content until I saw the slight dulling opaque-ness sheen before I stopped mixing. But you do have to work rather quickly to spoon the divinity on to the wax paper. Mine sat up rather quickly. Thank you so much for this splendid recipe. It's now in the Holiday Treat Book.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Nice Nice recipe! I used this to make a few batches of sugar free brittle for my father at his request. I did make the 1st batch as written before making the changes to suit my diabetic father. Both ways were rather good. And I'm sure he will be most satisfied being able to enjoy his batch that was made with Splenda & sugar free honey alternative...note, agave doesn't work well as I have found. However, this recipe should be well received as my children liked it both ways.

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This was excellent! My niece in law and I whipped up this recipe as I was disappointed with a few attempts on other recipes, but one previous attempted turned out well. BUT this one was soo delish. We easily exchanged the sugar for SPLENDA(R) with no problem and it was quite nice, thick and sweet with a little tartness. At our family gathering there happened to be 3 different types of cranberry sauce. 1 store-bought one and 2 that I made from here on AR, this one beat the other 2. As everyone preferred this one over the others. Will totally make again!! TY

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
When I 1st made this, I was tasting the moment it came off the stove. And knowing I used SPLENDA(R) in place of the sugar, I expected to be just a tad tart but it was severely tart. At least when biting into the cranberries it's self(right after making it). However, I cooled and placed in the frig for a few days, and then it seemed the flavors worked their magic and tasted way better after I let sit and the cranberries were not as tart as they previously were.. It's totally worth a few days to wait on the best flavor.

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This was a great recipe. It was soo flavorful and using fresh sage is the key to this recipe. My only dilemma with the recipe was having no gluten-free stock of any kind at last minute on Thanksgiving day in the my house and all my bouillon had some sort of gluten or cornstarch in it...due to an inlaw that can't eat corn...I resulted in, using ham broth. Yes, it was the only source I had to take, so I used a 1 to 1 ratio (1 cup ham broth and 1 cup water) Due to the sodium intake of the broth I just deleted the salt in the recipe. However, it was so yummy and my GF inlaw and others that aren't GF totally enjoyed this recipe to the hilt! It's going to be a repeat happy offender in my house. TY

Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
This recipe was okay as written. But did make them a second time to be more portable for what I was looking for, then added herb spices to the turkey and veggie mixture as it was just blah the 1st time. The 2nd time was way much better. And the 2nd batch...there was no leftovers.

Gluten Free Ginger-Honey Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
This was awesomely fantastic. I was soo skeptical about the ginger but after it baked and cool...I was forever snacking on it. Quite tasty. Do make sure you get a good quality banana chips. However, I didn't and was a chewy puffy weirdness. Made a 2nd batch after getting a different brand of banana chips....perfect. Will make again and I was able to use a sugar free honey alternative and SPLENDA(R) Brown Sugar to also reduce the sugar content...and it was still sweet and fabulous.

Honey Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
My kids went to town on these. I followed as instructed but scaled the recipe down to suit 1-1/2 cups of fresh seeds. Step #3 I put in for the 1st 20 minutes, which was fine, but barely got threw to the next 20 minutes as they were getting brown fast. So I pulled them out and dusted with the sugar, but noticed they were still browning really fast, so I stayed at the oven door and stirred every few minutes or so to keep them from burning. I removed them from the oven at about 5 minutes left from finishing the 2nd part of the 20 minutes stated in step #3. They wouldn't or couldn't bake for 60 minutes. When I removed them, I noticed the sugar melted into the honey glaze. So I dusted again with sugar for that wow factor and glad I did. They had that buttery sweet taste that my kids were saying tasted similar to kettle corn. Which I had to almost agree. Will make again.

Sweet Potato Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Something wrong with this recipe. I had over 3 individual cups over flowing of sweet potato chunks when I made this recipe. So granted should have been over 4 cups worth. After adding everything per instructions. This recipe was extremely wet and un-pliable to form any sort of ball. I had to cook off another 3-4 cups of sweet potato just to get it thick enough to form, using leftover large orange Halloween marshmallows for the regular large ones in this recipe. Mine also didn't stay in the oven 10-12 minutes and they were exploding and almost flat before plating. Taste-wise, they were okay. Would I attempt this recipe again. I'm sorry to say no. This recipe needs a binder to hold shape.

Sweet Potato Bird Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
This is one of those recipes I feel very stupid for making and reviewing before seeing what I was making it other then for a photo. SO laugh all you want because I am. SO, I did not clue in....this was a recipe for a bird. Yes, I didn't pay attention to the bird word in the recipe title. AND yes I did try it, on a personal note, it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either, it was okay. Then I'm sitting here wondering, why, am I doing this...this way?! And that's when I read, what this recipe was why it was....my husband has laughed at me all evening. And it's okay, I'm laughing too. Because I don't have a bird. So as a friend suggested, I'll freeze these and break them in pieces for the birdies that visit my property over the winter. I'm sure they will love it....and I added millet seed to some of them they were easy to hold shape. But great recipe for birds...I tell you ;-)

Potato Soup in Seven Minutes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Surprisingly...it was quite nice! It reminds me of waking up Sunday morning, wondering what to eat....hmm? yeah, this would be it. I actually had to crisp up some bacon since I normally don't keep pre-made bacon on hand. The rest of the family liked it a lot as well. TY will make again.

Hot Spiced Cider with Orange

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
As the previous reviewer stated...bad idea in the coffee maker, so I tried my tea maker instead, not all ingredients would fit. I had to stick the brown sugar and cinnamon stick in the tea jug and let it brew out on to it. However, it would only hold 1 quart of cider at a time, hence doing this twice to fill the jug up. Best if you do it in a pan on the stove and tying the ingredients in a cheesecloth pouch. Having said that, the recipe was...at best okay. There was only hints of flavor over the apple cider. Not sure I'll make again.

Monster Munch Halloween Popcorn Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
what a fun way to use up leftover candy from Halloween. Easy instructions to follow. However, after I mixed every thing, poured onto a my waxed paper lined pans, you couldn't see the candy or nuts. I added an additional cup of candy corn and peanuts to help reflect I had added them to begin with. We will make again following the holidays. Thank you.

No Cook Banana Pudding Base

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
This recipe was quite good. There is two ways you can really do this recipe...one with the whip topping in it or without it in the mix. Either way, it's a nice change from the norm. It was totally thick and fluffy. You really don't need to add extra whip topping when making the traditional layered banana pudding. I only added a little to the very top when I assembled. Other then that...it was something my kids will enjoy again. TY

Baked Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
This was really good. I found using my little trio dumpling set worked great in making cute little turnover pies. They were tasty and easy to make. Will make these again. And what's really nice is that I can easily change out the flour and pie crust for a gluten free alternative for an inlaw that's going to be visiting! Yeah me.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
This was my 1st ever sushi roll making recipe. However in saying that, I found a few things that made it difficult. I followed the rice making to a T and will say after nearly 25 minutes on the stove, it looked like porridge. I'll stick to making rice in my rice cooker. The result in which adding the sugar, salt and rice vinegar made it extremely wet, not dry-ish sticky. It also made the nori tear-able. That also resulted in 3 massacred rolls before I realized...strain off the liquid. I even went and sought out sushi videos, just to be clear at what I was doing wrong and it was the rice. Next time, increase the adjustments to 1:1 cup ratio. And follow through with the said amounts of rice vinegar, sugar and salt. I couldn't find pickled ginger anywhere, so I left it out. And another note to help with rolling, I found if I laid down a sheet of plastic wrap over my mat, it helped keep the mat clean and kept my ingredients together when I was assembling and rolling them up. Made for clean, tight and uniformed sushi rolls. Will make again even though the rice components gave me a problem in the beginning. My daughter was happy with the end result and asked me to help her learn. So she could make her own.

Pearl Baked Cream Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I and my daughters are onions lovers. I can tell you we didn't like this at all. The overall flavor was bland from the cream to the crust topping. If you like onions with milk, then this is for you. I'm sorry, I won't be making this again.
