Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
Made this according to directions and do not like the overpowering mayo flavor in it.....I believe it would be better substituting sour cream and using the seasoned bread crumbs on top with the cheese. I used real cheese and baked it in the oven. Mayo was miracle whip as regular mayo is too strong in dips for my liking. Even my kids who are NOT picky eaters didn't like it. For extra kick, I did layer some sliced jalapenos on top and that turned out well. It's the flavor of the base we don't like.

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This is a delicious gumbo and one which I'm making my new fav! The only change I suggest is to make the roux 1 part oil to 3 parts flour...The recipe doesn't require so much oil. The trick to getting the nutty flavor of the flour into your roux is to stir constantly (I use a large , long-handled, stainless spoon, instead of whisk) until the right color is reached! I cooked roux at med-med high heat also. It was very tasty and had rave reviews from friends/family! Oh, I also added okra...an essential in my book for gumbo!! DEEE-LISH!!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
This is exactly my personal recipe handed down for generations in my family. To really add some flavor, substitute vanilla butter nut for the vanilla extract. Also, to make a lighter colored cake, I cut the temp to 300 degrees and cook for a longer period. To lighten the recipe, I've used lowfat margarine, eggbeaters, and lowfat cream cheese. It only changed the texture to a more spongy feel--but still as tasty and appreciated by the women in my office. The trick to making a great cake is beating in air by alternating 1/2 cup flour to 1 egg--beating after each flour and each egg addition. It has lots of starts and stops; but, it is so worth it!! This is my personal favorite cake recipe as it so versatile!
