Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Made all of the suggested changes but without thinking I used non-fat milk in the icing. Not a good thing, it never thickened and it resulted in a runny mess. Sooo, I made the icing a second time using what I had on hand, a can of evaporated milk. What a difference. This icing is absolutely amazing!

Barley Lime Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
We really loved this but I did make a few changes. I too substituted honey for the corn syrup. And I cut that in half as we prefer less sweet in our main courses. Another change was that I eliminated the oil in the salad but kept it in the dressing. And I substituted olive oil for the canola. Lastly, we squeezed fresh lime over our individual servings, which brightened up the taste. One other note, the small red onion I used was extremely strong so I should have reduced that amount as the onion flavor overwhelmed the left overs. It is also a very beautiful salad, especially striking in a dark colored dish. It was served with poached salmon on the side.
