Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Our family and friends loved them! We had some friends over to watch a football game and we were looking for something to fix for a quick dessert to go with dinner and stumbled across this. While it wasn't quick, it sounded so yummy we decided to go for it. We admittedly tweaked it a bit. First we decided for the sake of speeding things up, to make cupcakes. Perfect use of this recipe! It's light and delicious and moist! A little messy, we make sure the kids aren't over the carpet to enjoy them but a good change we felt. We used the entire LARGE can of pumpkin. Yes that looks like a lot and is well over the two c. the recipe calls for and no it's not going to be a problem. It made the recipe very, very moist. They were great fresh out of the oven all warm and springy, but they were so much better the next morning after all that pumpkin had truly married with the other ingredients. Go with the extra. We also felt that just cinnamon was probably like a poorly spiced pumpkin pie, a bad call. So we added an 1/8th of a teaspoon of ground ginger and nutmeg to the dry mix. And because I live in the middle of a pecan grove, we used those instead of walnuts. The recipe made 30 standard cupcakes when filling the cups 2/3rds full. They rose well and were a fantastic hit with everyone. Least to say 24 hours later they are gone. And everyone is asking when we're making more!

Creamy Lemon Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I had never had this until I met my husband's grandmother 11 years ago. Ever since it's been my favorite desert. So much so that I always ask granny to make one for special occaions and it's my preferred birthday treat. It's amazing just chilled in the fridge but it's best eattin frozen straight from the freezer. Not only do they freeze well for short term, but they freeze well for a couple months as well. Best pie you'll ever eat!!!!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
These were by far the best pancakes I've ever ate in my entire life. I looking for a scratch recipe for pancakes when I found this one. While I enjoy Bisquick as much as the next busy mom, we were out (or most everything). I was hoping that pancakes were as simple as a figured they were and when I lucked across this recipe I discovered I was right. There was nothing in this that the standard cook doesn't have in their cabinets/fridge on a daily basis. I was thrilled with the texture and flavor of these. I might never return to boxed mixes! I did make one addition. I've for years been adding a teaspoon or two of vanilla to my pancake mixes. After mixing the batter per directions and tasting it, I did decide to amp up the sugar (by more than a little) and continue with my vanilla addition. Still they were amazing. My kids had 4 apiece and my very picky husband at 6! Kudos to the good food!
