Carrot Cake VIII

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
Delicious! Skipped the nuts and doubled the raisins. I didn't make the frosting but opted for store bought and sprinkled it with sweetened shredded coconut.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
I was really craving caramel popcorn tonight, but I was out of both margarine/butter and didn't have any corn syrup. I read the reviews and decided to use Canola oil and honey as two different reviewers had done. The first mixture turned out a bit oily after cooking for the 3 minutes and the 1 1/2 minutes and adding the baking soda. I decided to drain off about 1/2 of the remaining oil on top and let the popcorn absorb the rest. I poured the caramel over the pre-popped popcorn (with the unpopped kernels removed) that I placed in a large, greased bowl. I stirred it as best as possible and then placed it in the pam-sprayed paper grocery bag. At this point I still wasn't optimistic of the results, but I forged ahead! I microwaved it in the bag for 1 minute, shook, flipped, and microwaved it for 45 seconds the second time. I have a 1200 watt microwave and I think I will reduced the first microwaving to 45 seconds as well. I opened the bag and much to my delight it looked and smelled delicious! I let it cool on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet and my craving it satisfied. This was amazingly easy and I can only imagine how rich it will taste with real butter, corn syrup, and some peanuts the next time a craving hits! I think this recipe is extremely adaptable to other flavor additions as well. Pinning this one to Pinterest!

Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
We just finished making graham cracker "gingerbread-style" houses with the kids. This recipe worked great. I mixed the cream of tartar and powdered sugar in a bowl first and then added the lightly mixed egg whites. After mixing the ingredients with a spoon (so I wouldn't have powdered sugar all over my kitchen), I mixed with an electric hand mixer for about 5-7 minutes. I definitely didn't end up with four cups worth, but the consistency was good without any additions. We didn't have any vanilla extract, so I omitted it. I made one batch as directed and then mixed another 1/3 batch. We had enough for all three houses, one of which was a four-story condo. :) I will definitely use this recipe again next year.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
The flavors were a nice combination, but the filling was dry. Next time I will add some sour cream or cream cheese to the filling. I will also use Monterrey Jack cheese - the flavor of the queso wasn't strong enough to support the other flavors. Overall, it was a good recipe that our veggie family enjoyed.
