Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
I'm a frosting fanatic--could skip the cake and just eat the frosting. I made this twice, once using half butter, the second time using 3/4 butter to 1/4 shortening. Both times, it came out terrific. I think it's a matter of personal taste, but something about the shortening definitely gives it that bakery flavor. I used real vanilla, and it didn't negatively impact the color of the frosting while significantly adding to the taste. Finally, the heavy cream gives it a wonderful texture. Thanks for a great recipe!

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I read the reviews prior to Thanksgiving dinner; took the advice of many and cut down the amounts of butter and brown sugar a little bit. It didn't detract from the recipe at all. I used a round casserole dish because my 9x13 pans were occupied. Still came out great, but next time I'll be sure to use the right pan size to have more surface area to cover with marshmallows! We'll definitely make this one again.

Pecan Squares Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Awesome bars--my husband loved them! I only had enough pecans to make half a recipe, but otherwise followed directions exactly as written. Used a 7-1/2"x11" pan, and they came out great. I had to bring them to work to remove tempation from the home (we're doing Weight Watchers), and everyone agreed this recipe's a keeper.
