Fancy Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I have made this for years and everyone loves it! The secret is to buy a roll of sugar cookie dough--cuts down a bunch on time. Use whatever fruits are in season. Strawberries, Kiwi and mandarin oranges are always a must for us. Their contrasting colors bring this alive. I've recently started arranging the fruit for theme parties--like football teams or NASCAR! Just have fun with it!

Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This is a WONDERFUL recipe!! I made this recipe the first week of November for my 82 year old father. He loves fruit cake. I gave it to him at Thanksgiving and by Dec 12 it was almost gone! I'm in the process of making a second batch. I took advice from others, paid extra and included dried cherries and some apricots. Dried cherries have an excellent flavor, and candied cherries are more for the appearance. In my opinion, both are necessary. I also omitted the citrus peal---yuck! (This is why most people hate fruit cake.) I also soaked the fruit for a week in bourbon. I don't think you could do this wrong. I also added peach Schnapps, since I had it. As the week went on, and the fruit become plumper, I added more alcohol. I also added pecan pieces and some walnut pieces. As suggested, I also only used about 1/2 of the "dough" so the fruit & nut concentration was higher. Turned out great! Lastly, I made this into 5 different size loaves. A couple were slightly larger than a cup cake. Make sure to keep some pecan halves and candied cherry pieces to decorate the top of the cake! Just excellent!

Becel® Holiday Butternut Squash with Apple and Cranberries

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
My family does not like squash very much, so through the years I've tried different recipes here or there to try to get them to eat it. I was able to get 3 out of the 4 of them to eat this! I used dried cherries instead of cranberries, and regular butter. The only suggestion from my family was to add more apples! This recipe is a keeper!
