since I ended up with almost three pounds of beef all to myself. I can't eat thatmuch food, but I'm sure that I can find someone to help me eat it right? Yeah, most definitely.
Thumbs up for this recipe.

supposed to be like?). The middle part was fairly easy: put a bunch of fruit (really wish peaches and plums were in season at the moment, that would have be more delicious probably) and the milk filling. The top was easy: it was just like the topping on the Blueberry Buckle recipe I did awhile ago. The end product I didn't really like. It smelled really good, and I think that others eating liked it. It probably would have been better if I ate some a right when I took it out of the oven.
I'm giving this recipe a Thumbs Down.

Grandma's Tandy Kake
Pretty sure I didn't cook this long enough. The recipe says "until edges are golden" so that's what I did, but I felt like the middle was a little too battery than it should be. However, I don't know if this type of cake is suppose to be different than other types of cake? Either way, it was still delicious especially when served cold. I had the most fun melting the chocolate - this was the first time I've ever melt chocolate that actually worked! I created my owned double boiler by using two pots (thank you Pinterest for this suggestion) and it worked out wonderfully! I

This turned out awesomely. I put an entire bag of mozzarella cheese, green pepper, ground beef, and onions on this pizza. The crust was perfectly baked - crunchy but still a little soft on top. One thing I'll say, I'm not good at "framing" the pizza, it kind of looked like a bowtie, but who cares what it looks like if it tastes so delcious?!
Thumbs up for sure on this recipe.
Chesapeake Crab Dip
This dip has cream cheese in it *insert sad face emoji* but it was fairly easy to make. The recipe says to bake it in the oven, but I decided to just make it in a crock-pot since I was stuck at home due to the icy conditions and thought it would be great to just walk over, have a cracker with dip on it, and go on with whatever else I was doing. My little crock pot was the perfect size for all the ingredients needed. I added some extra cheddar cheese because why not?!
Thumbs up for easiness.

Huevos Rancheros with Tomatillo Sauce
Hands down my favorite thing I've made so far. Reason one: it's Mexican food, therefore it goes well with salsa and queso. Reason two: it was quick and easy. Reason three: you can cook the eggs anyway you like and it still tastes amazing. I cooked these with scrambled eggs - mostly because I have quite mastered any of the other ways to cook eggs (love over easy, but I can never seem to get it right) - but also because it's easy. And boy was this delicious. The entire thing only took about twenty minutes to prepare.
Lime Coconut Cheescake
Some things I learned from making a cheesecake: 1. whipping your own whipped cream is not fun. It wasn't until I was whipping if for like 15 minutes until I decided it may be a good idea to get me electric mixer. Even after that, it still took another 10 minutes. Next time I'll definitely be purchasing cool whip for a cheesecake recipe, sorry folks. 2. Softening cream cheese is not as easy as softening butter and it's not fun to beat. I had a hard time getting a good consistency and hope that the outcome isn't affected by this aspect (it seemed to be
For the people that ate this cheesecake: they give it a thumbs up.
Southwest - Dessert
I couldn't find the recipe on the Taste of Home website, so here it is from the cookbook for any of those that are reading for the recipes themselves. These wafers were easy to mix up, but extremely difficult to get off the cookie sheet. Half of the ones I made did not come up in circles, but instead I'm left with a huge pile of pieces that are still edible but look horrible. I don't know what part of this recipe is the problem for this - could it be that I spooned too much batter onto the sheet, could I not have baked it long enough, could I have not let it sit on the pan to cool long enough? I don't know. Something happened though because some batches came out well while the others did not. The taste wasn't affected by the looks though. I saved the reject wafers because they were still delicious, I mean who really cares what they look like right? They are good with coffee and tea, but ultimately they are good whenever (especially right out of the oven, just like any cookie really).
This recipe gets a thumbs up for taste, but a thumbs down for execution. I will not be making these again because I don't think it's worth all the trouble of scraping off my cookie sheets.
