Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream
Just made this ice cream and loved it! I had to make a few changes- I used 2 cups of 2% milk and 1 cup of whipping cream (as this is what I had available) and it was still very creamy and rich. I used the full 1 cup of sugar as the recipe called for and it turned out a little too sweet for my taste, so I didn't add the caramel at the end for fear that may make it just sickeningly sweet. Still, it was a delicious coffee ice cream, albeit on the sweet side. Next time I make it (since I am definitely making it again), I will cut down on the sugar- first, I will try with 3/4 cup and then maybe even with 2/3 cup and see what I like best. I have never had the caramel macchiato drink, so I cannot comment on how close this ice cream is to it in flavor, but I certainly know it is one excellent recipe that (with little tweaking) I will be going back to again and again. Thanks for sharing!

Seven-Up(TM) Cake II
I just made this cake last night and upon reading some of the reviews, I changed a few things: 1) I decreased the sugar to 2 1/2 cups and it was definitely sweet enough 2) I added 2 tsps vanilla extract 3) I added the zest of one lemon 4) I added 1 tsp of baking soda to the flour 5) I increased the 7UP to 1 cup I did beat the sugar and butter (at room temp) for the recommended 20 minutes- set the timer up and left my stand mixer do the job :) while I was getting all of my other ingredients out and the pan greased and floured. I also alternated adding the flour and the 7UP (I actually used Sprite), beginning and ending with the flour. I made sure not to overbeat, just mix to incorporate. I ended up making 24 cupcakes and one regular size bread loaf pan out of this cake recipe, decreasing the time in the oven. Everything turned out extremely moist and absolutely delicious! My whole family loved this recipe!

Simple Scones
I love this recipe for scones! I have made it over and over again in the last few years and it is a huge hit every time! NOTE: It is definitely a lot easier to make if you have a food processor- they literally come together in a snap! I use this recipe (minus the raisins) as a basis and change up the flavors a zillion ways. My most favorite one is Cranberry-Lemon: to die for combination! But you could also turn these into: lemon-blueberry scones, orange-cranberry, butterscotch chips, coconut and chocolate chips, craisins and white chocolate chips, hazelnuts and toffee chunks, walnuts and chopped dried apricots, coarsely chopped candied ginger and cinnamon, pecans and caramels cut into fourths, Gruyere and herbs, Cheddar and green onions or chives, ham and cheese, etc, etc....... The possibilities are virtually endless! Whichever flavor combination you choose to make, I am sure you will love them!
