Reviewed Quincy's Yeast Rolls

1 day ago in null on Food.com

These were the largest, fluffiest yeast rolls I have ever made. I did not need to adjust the wet or dry ingredients for the bread machine. I used exactly what the recipe called for.I divided the dough into thirteen 2.3 ounce rolls. After the first 10 minutes of baking, I brushed them with melted butter and then continued baking. Great, great re...

Jul 12, 2014 in null on Food.com

This was just ok. I followed the recipe exactly. I agree with others that said 6 tablespoons of oil is way too much. I felt there just wasn';t much flavor to it. I';m thinking of putting the leftover salmon on top of a tossed salad."

Reviewed The Very Best Salisbury Steak

Jul 9, 2014 in null on Food.com

I liked this recipe. My husband loved it. Since he is the family Salisbury Steak expert, I gave the recipe 5 stars. I made it in my 10" cast iron pan. The patties got a nice crisp crust. The meat was very, very tender. I served it with mashed potatoes."

Jul 6, 2014 in null on Food.com

I seem to always have success with recipes from the Hershey company. These cookies were also successful. I had a few ounces of leftover semi sweet chocolate chips so I added those to the batter. These are a very good tasting chocolate cookie."

Jul 4, 2014 in null on Food.com

This dip got mixed reviews at a family get together. I think more people would have liked it if I made the cream cheese and avocado pieces smaller. Next time I';ll try to cut the cream cheese and the avocado to be about the same size as the corn kernels."

Reviewed Apple Crostata With Caramel Sauce

Jul 4, 2014 in null on Food.com

I really liked the crust recipe. I chilled it for 30 minutes, as recommended and then let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes. It rolled out very easily to a 12 inch round. I liked the crostata. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars instead of 4 stars is that I would have liked a little bit of juice in the filling. I expe...

I am a very inexperienced pie maker. I am so pleased with how this pie turned out. I love how the filling thickened enough to hold together when each slice was cut. I knew my cherries were tart so I bumped up the sugar to 1 cup and I also added 1/4 t. of almond extract. Many other cherry pie recipes include almond extract so I thought it would...

I brought this to a party. Some people liked it. Some people said it could use a little stronger taco flavor. I tend to agree with that. Chef pammyowl added a packet of taco seasoning. Good idea. I love the idea of rolling the cheese log in the crushed Fritos."

I would classify this as a special salad. It';s kind of alot of work to prepare just for myself. I could see this as part of bridal or baby shower luncheon. To save time, I bought the butternut squash already cut into cubes. I also used craisins instead of cranberries. For the store bought poppyseed dressing, I used Kraft brand."

I cut the recipe in half. One half recipe made 32 mini cupcakes, a 10" x 15" pan and about 9 regular size cupcakes. I thought the cake by itself was not very flavorful. But once I added a nice cream cheese frosting, the flavors all came together."

I was disappointed in the flavor of this ice cream. My strawberries were sweet but IMHO the ice cream still needed more than the 1/3rd cup sugar listed in the recipe. I checked other ice cream recipes and many called for at least 3/4 c. sugar. If I were to make this again, I would bump up the sugar amount considerably."
