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.

Russian Tea Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
this recipe was easy to follow, at best okay for me. My kids loved it. I didn't find it sweet at all. However it was flavorful, add more for a more intense drink experience then author recommends. I remember my dad making something like this but having red hot candy in it. Other wise, I'll make this again.

Christmas Coffee

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
this is one of those hot drinks.....you totally don't want to screw up. I made this with the intention of using the SPLENDA(R) Brown Sugar Blend with the conversions of chart on the back of the package. 1st note, don't follow that conversion for this recipe. Use the full amount directed on this recipe when subbing with the SPLENDA(R) substitute, you will thank me for it. 2nd note, when making your cup of hot Christmas Coffee, please also note, that the hot water amount should also be 6 ounces. As looked up at the note, my eyes skimmed over it and thought it was a solid 1 cup measurement. That's not the case. It's 6 ounces of hot water and I used 4 tsp of mix. Now that I've got those notes aside. This was really comforting. I loved the overall taste right down to the last sip. I will be enjoying this completely during the holidays and after for sure. If you bypass my note advice you will find that your coffee will be weak and not slightly sweet. If you follow my advice, you will enjoy this recipe as I did....thanks again!

Halloween Black Bat Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
While these were okay. I thought the whole theme of the idea grand. I had to add several upon several drops to get the really dark black look because in the marinating...they didn't look all the black to me, dark with a greenish look to them. The sauce was very zippy. I think if my kids want these again, I'd knock down the teriyaki and soy sauce just a bit. Other then that, my kids thought there were just fine.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
This was a really good cornbread. I love making it from scratch. I left this mixing in my mixer like 10plus minutes buy mistake only because someone came to my door....maybe that's why it fluffed up more then I thought it should, however, it was perfect for what I was making it with.....chili! Will totally make again.

Frozen Mocha

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Fantastic recipe! With a dietary need, I was able to use a Splenda based recipe cocoa mix from allrecipes, Sugar-free Vanilla Ice Cream, 1% milk, decaf coffee granules & fat free whip...I know it sounds like I took the fun out of the drink, but the fun was being able to enjoy it like my kids can. It was hmmm mmm mmmmm good! I didn't taste much coffee for myself. I can personally add a tad more for my liking, however, I didn't have any complaints from others in that department. It will totally be on the keeper list for sure! We found it amazing to the hit me right there stop for a chocolaty fix! TY TY
