Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was delicious and will now be my go to potato soup recipe. I did change a few things. I only used 6 potatoes , only 1 leek, and 5 strips of bacon. I also cooked the leeks in all of the bacon renderings but then added about 1 1/2 TBSP of flour to the leeks. I cooked it for a minute or two, added my milk and half and half combo (I did a half cup of each) to the leeks, let it thicken up a little, then added it to the soup. I topped it with cheddar cheese and the bacon pieces and it was delicious. My boys LOVED it, too!

Mediterranean Chicken with Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This was excellent. I didn't rate it a 5 because I had followed some of the instructions from others. I marinated my chicken in basalmic vinegar, lemon, and olive oil. Then grilled it for about 4 minutes on each side. I then cubed it up and finished the recipe as is. I did add a small layer of mozzarella between the eggplant and chicken. I was delicious. I served it with a greek salad. Yum! Yum! Will be making this one again!

Cake with Buttercream Decorating Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This is the best buttercream recipe I have found. I tried many recipes without shortening and could never get the right consistancy or flavor I wanted. You can not taste the shortening in this recipe at all. I used almond extract in mine as well and it was great. I made 3/4 of the recipe and still had to freeze some remaining after doing a crumb layer and decorating a heart shaped cake. It works well with detailing and writing. Will used this one from now on!

Holiday Pumpkin Cake with Rum-Cream Cheese Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
If you love pumpkin pie but want a different take on it, you will love this recipe. It was easy to make and every one loved it. Cake needs to be completely cooled before you put on glaze. I was in a hurry when I made this and didn't wait long enough before I made the glaze so it melted but it was still delicious. The glaze is to die for, will use on other items!

Butter Cream Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This recipe was very easy. It frosts wonderfully well. I tinted it and piped it onto cupcakes. I added a 1 1/2 tsp of almond and it was delicious. I may cut back on the sugar amount just a little bit next time because it was a tad sweet for my taste but everyone else loved it. Will definetly use again! Thanks!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
This frosting recipe was great and so quick and easy. My husband and son loved it. It is not too sweet and is very smooth and creamy. It came out the perfect consistancy. Would need to double for a layer cake but was just enough for a 9x13 sheet cake.
