Broccoli Cheese Soup
I also followed the advice to double the Velveeta and broccoli. When the broccoli had softened in the chicken broth, I used an immersion blender to puree much (but not all) of the broccoli. At the end (after the soup had thickened), I added 8 oz of sharp, shredded cheddar. Usually I get impatient with folks who change everything about the recipe, but these tips did yield a great result. This soup is fantastic!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken
Maybe I'm just having a bad day, but this chicken turned out awful-- rubbery and chewy and burned on top. Followed the directions exactly. Hmmmm.

Aunt Johnnie's Pound Cake
This is by far the best pound cake I've ever had. I have always made it in a large pound cake pan (tall, straight sides)...NOT a bundt pan. Also, I do not like almond flavoring, so I use a combination of butter flavoring and vanilla extract. By following the rest of the directions exactly, I've never had this cake fail me, and I've made it probably two dozen times, and folks who eat it have asked me if I bake professionally when they try it. The secret is the flavoring and the cake flour.
