Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
I did not follow the recipe rather I took the advice of several people on here and just used all butter. I used 1 and a half stick butter, 2 cups of confectioner's sugar and vanilla extract. I didn't measure the vanilla I just used my judgment. I put red and blue food colouring to make a dusty rose. I did not need the milk at all. It turned out wonderful! I think 4 cups will be appropriate if you were making a huge amount of frosting otherwise I think 4 cups of sugar is a bit much.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Loved it! Though I made some adjustments. I had one can of diced tomato on hand so I used less liquid. Used a bit of water and one can of chicken broth. Skipped the mango and cilantro. With these moderations I felt there was a bit too much liquid so next time I will use two cans of diced tomato (love tomato) and will drain one of the liquid. skip the water and use half a can of chicken broth. I felt the stew was more soupy than "stewy". It was like a chunky stew. Otherwise I will definitely ABSOLUTELY make this again. Oh and I will use beef next time see how that turns out. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that you can make anyway you choose really.
