Classic Caramel Corn
Do it exactly as the directions say and you have the most perfect caramel corm around. By far my most favorite recipe on I made it for Christmas gifts and got raves. My first batch - perfect. My second batch I added peanuts- even better. Because I like peanuts. It tastes like Cracker Jack. I even put little prizes inside each jar for a fun surprise. Read the other reviews. Stirring it every 10 minutes is key, and spraying all the pans, utensils and tinfoil works so well. When I spread it out I tap it apart with a wooden spoon so it doesn't end in chunks, but individual pieces, like Cracker Jack. SO IMPRESSED. Thank you so much for this recipe. It will remain a family favorite for years to come. :) Happy holidays.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
This is a well loved, well used recipe at our house. No changes needed to be able to give it five stars. Since I am on a no/low sodium diet I DO use all natural peanut butter which is sodium free and they come out great. I also use Nevia [similar to Splenda, I guess] to cut the calories and still...FANTASTIC! I have also made them with regular peanut butter, regular sugar and crunchy peanut butter - heck I even made them with PEA-nut butter which is a nut free butter that simulates peanut butter and they were fabulous tasting. And a nice gift for the kids in my daughter's marching band that have nut allergies. They couldn't believe they could have "peanut" butter cookies too. Don't be shy- use what you have - but you honestly can make them exactly as written and they come out fabulous. Gotta go! I have a batch coming out of the oven soon. Peanut butter chocolate chip. YUM!

Heavenly White Cake
Great recipe. It makes a lovely cake. Not being a fan of almond extract I still enjoyed it, but the family LOVES it and insists I make it again [and again, and again, and again. . .]. It has a great crumb and I didn't find it dense at all. The trick is to make sure your eggs whites peak and that they are folded in, so be gentle. If you are unsure of how your egg whites should look or how to fold them in the video is a great reference. I made it as written and with an additional 1/2 cup of milk. The batter is a bit thicker without the added milk, but I could barely tell the difference in the end results. Both were wonderful. It's a keeper. I am anxious to replace the almond with other extracts, such as lemon or orange, and add some zest. I am sure it will be a great base recipe to play around with and make your own. Thanks for sharing!
