Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I've made this recipe 3 times in the past month with increasingly better results each time. Spending the time to cream the butter and sugar and gradually adding the egg is a critical step. The big difference from the first time is that I used my KitchenAid stand mixer instead of a hand mixer. Makes a world of difference. Here are the other changes I made to the recipe: Replaced 1/2 cup of the butter with 1/2 cup canola oil (adds moisture) Cooked for 1hr 30 min. instead of 1 hr 10 min.(makes it less brownie-like) Added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter at the end (adds more chocolate flavor) Everyone enjoyed it at the holiday celebrations.

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Great way to use the leftover turkey. I made a few changes that made it a real winner. I added a cup more turkey and an additional can of black beans to make it heartier. Also, I used 4 cups of chicken stock instead of the bullion and water. I diced fresh tomatoes in the blender instead of using the canned tomato. Two tablespoons more of chili powder and a teaspoon more of cumin really spiced it up. A squeeze of fresh lime and twice the amount of garlic heightened the flavors. I left out the sour cream to keep the calories down.
