RITZ Country Fried Ribs with Zesty Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, created by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
These ribs are fantastic, I was impressed with the RITZ cracker breading, on how well it held up to frying. I only made enough of this recipe for 1 slab of ribs and followed to a T but felt the Cajun spice should have been incorporated with the cracker breading. However, as I explained to someone...I didn't just foo-foo dust them either when they came out of the oil...I did a shaky shaky on all sides of the ribs. I also couldn't believe how shocked I got at my hubby and son too over this recipe. Both my son and hubby are meat guys but have issues with fat, gristle and bones...well son has the issue with eating anything with bones in it. However, I've tried for years and years to get them to eat ribs and I make ribs every S.B.Sunday for my girls and girls only. But these ribs were my halleluiah to the rib God ;-) because my husband ate more then half the slab of ribs by himself and my son enjoyed it too...and then asked me to make them for S.B.Sunday. I walked away literally shocked. You will be amazed how tender these turned out from the oven to the fryer to our plates. Will make again. TY TY for a great rib recipe....the dipping sauce recipe, was okay at best, way to much vinegar for our taste. And didn't taste of a zesty ranch either. After adding an additional cup of may, another tsbp of Cajun spice and 1 1oz package of Ranch dry mix....we had a keeper dipping sauce in the house!

RITZ "Everything" Bites with Lox and Schmear

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
this by far was one of my personal favorite's! I made this twice and ended up eating this as a late night TV snacks when the kids went to bed and I was watching my recordings. It was so flavorful, the salmon was wonderful, the cucumber added that little crunch and it was just the perfect little morsel. My children loved it....my son, was to be expected, said it was alright because he's not much of a fish person. But at least I give kudos for trying it. Will totally be on my rotation for #gameday and any time I am in the mode ;-)

RITZ Humble Pie with Peanut Butter Mousse, created by Serendipity 3

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
The 1st time I made this, I loved the flavor of the crust...that hands down is really good! Then came the mousse, it was very strong and overpowering with peanut flavor. I felt I followed it to a T but after 2 hours in the frig....it was flopping and wouldn't hold shape very well after I cut into slices. And felt this should be freezer style pie. But if set up over night, it held way better. Having said that, I made it a 2nd time. One, I didn't care for the peanuts in the pie, rather it be sprinkled on top as a garnish...just my feeling on that. 2nd, needs a FULL 8oz package of cream cheese because it needed to be thicker and I did add the additional cream cheese on the 2nd round to accommodate that adjustment. 3rd, at 1st I thought there was too much whip topping in the mouse because it didn't hold up very well the 1st time. But after rethinking on the 2nd round, the whip topping really needed to be very stiff, so if you chose to use a non-dairy prepared whip topping....might not be a good idea. I made sure my whip topping was stiff enough and when I added it to the 2nd batch, it help so well, it was really ready to slice and go. Having made the changes with the additional cream cheese, then making sure my whip topping was very stiff, and leaving out the peanuts....I found I totally loved the recipe. Will make it again with my modifications.

RITZ Pastrami and Corned Beef Mini Sandwich, created by Carnegie Deli

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
While this was a great treat to have for #gameday. I found it had way to much meat. Using the Hillshire Farms deli slices, my stack literally 2 1/2 inches tall. So I cut down to half the meat that was required. Other then that, the sauce was nice, a bit runny but nice. My family enjoyed this.

2-Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This was a fantastic and quick recipe , if I ever crossed one easy enough! I've made this at least 5x in one week for the family and for friends. I also did this with crunchy peanut butter as well. Such a quick and easy recipe. Will be on my holiday goodie table for sure. I just might add this...do NOT skimp out on amount of ounces in this recipe. You thoroughly need the 18 ounces of peanut butter, don't settle for a smaller jar, you won't have the same results.

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.
