Cream Cheese Frosting II
Wow!!! This is great frosting! Every one who tasted it had to back away from the bowl so they would not be tempted to eat the whole thing! One change that I really enjoyed- I added coconut extract instead of the vanilla. Hello! It was heaven!

Baked Omelet
This was excellent! My boyfriend gave me a high-five! I sauteed the onions with a clove of garlic in butter before adding in. I also added 2 strips of chopped bacon and 2 sauteed sliced zucchini. It was great! Next time, I will try it with bacon, mushroom and parmesan.

Easy Rum Cake
One word: DEVINE. I used what I had on hand: pecans instead of walnuts, butter recipe yellow cake mix, and Captain instead of Meyer's, and it was so easy and so good. I do have a trick when its time to butter and flour the pan: I use real butter and WHITE SUGAR to "flour" the pan instead of flour. This creates a wonderful crispy sweet shiny glaze on the outside of the cake. A neighbor even stopped by to ask what I was baking because it smelled so good! I leveled the bottom of the cake with a knife and poured the glaze onto the exposed part while it was still warm. Leveling off the top makes a more even cake when it's inverted, and the glaze soaks into the cake very well this way.
