Beef Brisket My Way

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
We love this one. I usually get a really large brisket and cut it into one large and a smaller one that I turn into a corned beef brisket I use this recipe by Ron Brobst and leave out the cabbage because my family will only eat cabbage in slaw. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/corned-beef-and-cabbage/detail.aspx I make this recipe as is and only change the wine, to a Cabernet because I just don't care for Marlot.

As is this is a wonderfull cookie. Didn't have a spice cake mix in the house but I did have a can of pumpkin. Added 4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice to a reduced sugar yellow cake mix and 1 tsp cardamom, mixed to togeather before adding the pumpkin. Then I added 1/2 cup Craisens, 1/2 cup chopped nuts & 1/2 cups Cinnamon chips. Too good.

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I only gave this four stars because lets face it real sugar trumps any artificial sweetner any day. This is as good as it gets useing splenda and only 1/4 cup real suger. No discernable after taste for me or anyone I have had try this.

Momma Moots' Pork and Pierogies Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
My rating may be just a little off as I changed the recipe to fit my familys likes and dislikes. Chives,not rosemary added some broccoli I had leftover from the stuffed pork dinner the night before to add some color. I used the cooked pork cut into cubes, cream corn because that is what I had on hand. I have never cooked pierogies befor I'm glad I found them. The family loved it and I have a new goto casserole.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
I was making chicken strips and cottage fries for the grandkids. The oldest (7), Austin asked for honey mustard dipping sauce. So we hopped on AR for a quick simple recipe and this was just what we needed. I had almost ½ c. of mayo left in a qt jar so I added what we needed to make it and had Austin add the rest of the ingredients to the jar. Then he shook it for all he was worth for about 2 min. maybe 3. This was his review of your sauce JILLENA. Awesome!! Better then Mc D’s. Keep in mind how important McD’s is to a seven year old. Everyone for the 19 mo old to the 82 yr old liked it also.

Cheddar Cheese Straws

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This was a wonderful recipe as is. The grandkids loved it, so did the mail man. Poor guy he often gets roped into testing things at our house. Bless him he keeps coming back with a smile. It was a bit bland then I saw I had left out the cayenne. So I tweaked the second batch. I added 3 tbs. olive oil 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp ground cumin, and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder. I cut back on the water to about 3 tbs. till dough was just right for the cookie press. I don't like to roll out anything I'm not sure I could find my rolling pin. Also useing extra sharp cheddar helps make the cheese taste come through. Also do let your butter and cheese warm to room temp. or better yet set on stove as you pre heat it make it so much easier to blend. I also up the cooking time to 8 min making a nice crunch in the straws.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Easy Is just the word for these muffins. and the taste well I added more spice I'm a cinnamon fan. also added pecans,and a crumb topping. They are going to Hubby's office. The taste was wonderfull firm and moist. Had some batter leftover so I added oatmeal and made into cookies, light and fluffy real cake like but the grand kids loved them. I did think of adding oil and an egg but held off, glad I did. next time I'm going to use reduced sugar cake mix.

Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I have to give this recipe 4 stars as is, with a few changes it’s a Five. After reading other reviews I mixed the gelatin in a small glass bowl of cool water if you add it slowly it will almost mix itself. Then heat in microwave on half power (about 500 watts) for 10 sec. this worked wonderful for me. Do chill the beaters and bowl. Allow gelatin to cool a bit then follow the recipe as written. I used spenda run through a grinder to make it carb. and sugar free. It was just what I needed to make mother in laws reduced sugar birthday cake look like it was "cheating". Thank you ETHELMERTZ this is as close as I am going to get to the commercial whipped topping used on the low sugar cakes at the mall.

Anise Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This recipe was my first attempt at biscotti. Didn’t have any brandy so I used kahlua. No almonds (we are not big almond fans) but wow was this easy breezy. They plumped more than I expected so next time I will down size the loaf and make three instead of two. Son’s latest GF said oh wow this is so way better then starbucks’. She gave them a 10 son was to into eating them so say. Hubby said good cookies hun what made you make them into planks? I love my man. I just said easy to dip in your coffee that way hun. I will make them again and again. Thank you Laria for a wonderful recipe and grate directions.

Carolyn's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Maybe I did somthing wrong,but my fries did not come out chrisp. I thought they were going to be chrisp like fries. The family loved them just the same and I did also. I did leave out the brown suger MIL is a diabetic I was worried about the sugers in the sweet potatoes without adding more to it. As I said the family loved these twin 21 yr old sons that never agree both said it's a do-again maybe even for holiday dinner. So I gave this 4 stars but not the 5 because I just can't get past the no chrisp factor.
