Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy
This was my first attempt at toffee. I halfed the recipe in case it was terrible. I did add about 1t vanilla. I used a skillet.. it was all I had. I followed the directions to stir constantly. It turned out GREAT! I don't have a thermometer either, so I dropped a but into a glass of cold water. It set right up, so I knew it was done. It took about 10 minutes of prep and about 20 minutes in the fridge before we dove in. I am thrilled with this recipe! Thank you for a new favorite!

Aunt Mary's Chocolate Cake
I have made this cake twice now. Both times it turned out great. I don't have sour milk, so used regular fat free. I don't think it is too sweet, but I LOVE CHOCOLATE! I serve it with seven minute frosting! YUM! Thanks for a great recipe my whole family enjoys.

Wonderful Waffles
WOW! Yummy! The BEST waffles we have ever had. I must admit that I put all the ingredients in one big bowl and mixed by hand. No fancy hoopla like the recipe says, and I threw out the egg whites. Oops. BUT~ they were still awesome. It took me about 1 minute to prepare the batter. That's right! And we still loved them. We sliced fresh strawberries mixed with sugar and topped with Cool whip. FANTASTICO!
