Lemon Cream Cake
About this Cook
I sell Mary Kay and I just love it!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts and brunch type foods are my favorites, but I love to cook anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love Egg crescent cups for Sunday brunch. That or biscuits and gravy for breakfast.
My cooking triumphs
The Lemon Cream Cake was fantastic. Took a lot of hours to get it all done, but it was well worth it. It was a great Mother's Day Brunch "piece de resistance"
My cooking tragedies
Letting my ex-hubby make rice krispie treats for a New Year's Eve party...he used a rubber spatula when melting the marshmallows, and when we were eating them, we noticed they were really hard. He melted the rubber end of the spatula and didn't even realize it!!!

Baked Salmon I
I'm the submitter. A couple things I've noticed is that when I submitted the recipe, I don't think I submitted 1 lb. I think I submitted it as more than that because when I first made it, it was a very large fillet. Maybe the kitchen folks changed it when reviewing it. ?? Also, make sure you drain the rice really well before you add it to the pan with the fish. There's no way it will be soupy with that small amount of OJ. I know some reviewers have said they just put the dry rice right in the pan and added a little water and the OJ there, so I may try that the next time I make this, too! You don't have to use OJ either. You can use lemon juice, or you can use nothing. We just wanted something a little bit sweet because I was tired of the same lemon flavor on fish. You could even do half OJ and half Lemon juice, if you want. I have recently made the switch to Sea Salt, so I've started using that on this recipe, too. Good luck with the recipe!

Fruity Chicken Salad
This is very good without the mango, too. I often make it with just the raisins as the fruit.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
Me again...the sumbitter. I was in a pinch this year and I wasn't going to have time to prepare this for tomorrow like I wanted, so I used canned sweet potatoes. I can't believe I admitted that. It wasn't as good as fresh, but it worked out just fine, and still tastes pretty good. I used the same ingredients, mixed with a blender, folded in the nuts, now all I have to do is heat it up for tomorrow. I really prefer fresh, but if you're in a hurry and still want this recipe, canned sweet potatoes (good brand) worked out ok!
