Microwave Mississippi Mud Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
I found my self to be craving chocolate late last night so i found this recipe and decided to make it right away. I let my son try it today and in the words of my 8 year old "i give this recipe infinity stars because it was so so yummy!!". I must admit i totally concur. I did omit the nuts and marshmallows because i did not have any. And i put it into a square pyrex dish. It only took 14 minutes to cook. I found it DEVILISHLY rich so i did not add the frosting. This is a very easy brownie cake (because that is what it is). This is going to be a super Keeper. I love the thought of having it cooking while we are eating dinner so it will be all warm and perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Oh My Goodness! This was soooo good. I didn't change not one ingredient. I used my bread machine to do all the kneading and rising. I then did the final punch, turned it out gave it a little dusting with flour kneaded it twice and shaped it to fit my pizza stone that i pre-heated. I let it sit on the hot stone a few minutes to let the heat penetrate through the dough a little. I spread some pizza sauce on it then topped it with bacon, grilled chicken, salami, roasted red onion, red, green and yellow bell peppers and a lot of cheese. It was done in 20 minutes. Thanks Jason for a truly top notch recipe!

Donut Muffins or Mini Donuts

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I made these today and i just I loved this recipe, i did add and extra 2 Tablespoon of milk as i found the batter a little too stiff. I have a mini donut pan and used that. I put the batter into a piping bag with a wide opening and piped the batter into the pan to insure even distribution. They baked in 13 minutes. I did dunk some in the cinnamon sugar but i also melted some chocolate, dipped the tops in to cover and then sprinkled some sprinkles on top of the chocolate. They looked and tasted AMAZING!!! A definite favorite in this house.

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I love this bread, i made it into 8 mini loafs and 12 muffins. I like to add the juice that is in the pineapple can too. I used self raising flower so there was no need for the salt or the baking soda. I was asked to find some kid friendly recipes for the school canteen. Well this one made the kids rave and the teachers too. Next time i make it for my hubby i am going to throw in a 1/4 cup semi sweet choc chips and serve it right out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. mmmmm

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
It was delicious, i made 4 times as much as the recipe calls for, but i did use some suggestions others made. I added 2 cans Rotel diced tomatoes with chilies and 1 can corn drained. It was a big hit, i had sour cream and different kinds of grated cheeses and scoops corn chips to serve with it. I will be making this over and over again.

Classic Stuffed Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I made this last night for a christmas party dinner i hosted and it was all gobbled up. I thought the mushrooms were a little too over powering the flavoe so i will half that next time. But over all a very tasty recipe. Oh and i did add a lot of chicken seasoning as i like my stuffing well spiced not bland.

Eggless Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I love this eggnog, i never add the rum, i just dont like the flavor but i do add some cinnamon. I usualy eye ball it when adding the milk, cause i like it thick but not too thick. I use fat free milk and it still turns out quite creamy. Thanks for the great idea its a winner at my christmas party every year.

White Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
Love this recipe, But i sujest you heat the milk before you add it, that helps break down the flour. I use it with Lasagna, I just mix it with a tomato based veggi or meat sauce, then layer as you would any Lasagna. Add a little pepper and salt. You can use this to make croquets too.

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
If you add siera mist or other lemon lime sodas you dont need to add the sugar. They dont put sugar in it in Spain. And it should only have the wine as the alcohol, gives it a fresher taste. The aussie shiraz/cab is a great wine for Sangria.

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Was so easy to make, my only complaint is that after the night in the fridge it was like a rock. It needed to come to room temp for me to be able to roll it out for use.

Boston Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I only needed the cream (or i like to call it custard) part of this recipe for a 3 layered cake my mama makes. The constant stiring gave my arm a good work out. I was so happy that it didnt stick to the bottom of the pan as it was boiling. I used a soft rubber spatular to stir as another review sugested and it worked like a charm. It is not a sweet recipe which i think is just right, it is best to leave the sweet part to the actual sponge cake is can go along with. You can also put it in individual cups once cooked let cool and serve with caramel sauce. LOVE IT!

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This was so easy to make and a total show stoper at church brunch today. I baked it in a square pyrex pan because i didnt have a round one, sliced it into squares and there you have it. I do call it a cheese cake flan though, as traditional flan doesnt have the cream cheese.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
This is so lovely and great served with fragrant steamed rice. I did add 1 can french onion soup instead of the dry mix and 1 can of golden mushroom soup also, it intensifys the flavor and makes it mouth watering GOOD. My mum who is a very critical cook realy liked this too.

Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
My mum has made caramel this way since before i was born. One thing i seriously suggest is let it cool in cold water 20 minutes before you open the can or it can spurt out at you causeing seriouse burns. My impatient helped me learn the hard way.

Mark's English Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
Yeah BABY! I love sausage rolls, i lived in Australia most of my life and there it is also staple food. To remedy the greasyness of the recipe, all you need to do is add white bread soaked in warm water then squeeze out water thoroughly and add to the sausage, if you get the Jimmy Dean sage sausage its even better. And dont forget to dip it in good old tomato sauce or ketchup for you americans. MMMM Im hungry now!

Aioli

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
Tastes like home. I like to use an electric hand mixer its so much faster and gives the exact same taste and texture. Granted the traditional recipe does not have eggs but it is a lot harder to make and wears your arm out. My family uses this egg recipe all the time. Grill sliced potates and pork chops and use this as a slathering or dipping side and WOW, welome to SPAIN.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
This is sooooo good. I realy dissliked the putting and out and in the oven bit, but it is worth the effort. I love making this for potluck's and lazy sundays. I emailed this to my relitives in Spain and they were happily surprised too. I do add a little garlic powder and use the sage sausage. NOW THATS BRUNCH :)

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
I love this recipe, i have used it for a few years now and still love it. To keep it extra moist and half the cooking time i place the already seasoned turkey in an oven roasting bag and seal it with the twist tie thingy. MMMM
