Oh. My. Goodness! These are the most delicious tasting pickles ever. I followed the recipe with two exceptions: (1 I couldn't find the dried Cayenne peppers called for, so used dried chile arboles (red chiles - probably the same thing; (2 besides mincing some of the garlic, I added a bunch more and left them whole. I also could not find the Pi"

Generally, I am not a fan of Cole Slaw...however, this one is exceptional! The flavors are fresh and pair well with anything that you want to put Cole Slaw with. My husband is a fan of the traditional creamy style, but even he liked this....and he is definitely not a fan of vinegar dressing on anything!"

Totally awesome! I have never liked Red Velvet Cake until I made this one. It is my daughter-in-law's favorite cake, so I wanted to make it for her birthday. After looking through lots of R.V.C. recipes I decided to try this one, now I'm hooked. It baked up light and tender. I used a 9x13 pan (35 minutes in a convection over at 350 degrees. ...

P.S. I also adjusted the time and temp: using a convection oven, I set the temp at 375* instead of 400* and, borrowing from another recipe, baked the cookies for only 9 minutes. I think that even 12 minutes would have been too long. Only my opinion, though."

For a chocoholic, this Whoopie Pie recipe will be ideal. For my husband and me, it was over the top in chocolate flavor,,,waaaaay too much. The filling was equally sweet, which I already understood from reading the recipe. Next time, I think I'd try a simple marshmallow creme or cooked frosting. All-in-all, it was not bad, just not our favorit"

Extremely chocolatey! For true chocoholics, this will seem like the ultimate indulgence for a Whoopie Pie. It was much too chocolatey and "cakey" for my husband's and my taste. The filling was richly sweet, which I already knew from reading the recipe. I think I'd prefer these with simple marshmallow creme, but haven't tried that yet. I used "

Ho Hum. The sausages shrivelled and did not convey the flavor of the sauce at all...still tasted like smokey links. I would, however, use the sauce again with chicken wings instead of the sausages. I've used a similar recipe with the wings and they bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. Those have received rave reviews at parties we've given...
