Pina Colada Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This was delicious ...with a few modifications. When I read the ingredients of the pina colada mix our store carried, and saw that it consisted mostly of corn syrup and artificial flavorings, I opted to go the route of an authentic pina colada. So, instead of the mix, I used 5 oz cream of coconut (Coco Lopez) and 5 oz of pineapple juice, instead of the mix. I also used pineapple juice for the liquid in the cake mix recipe and added crushed pineapple, as per other reviewers here. For the topping, I used real whipped cream as I personally just don't care for frozen whipped topping. The consensus among my co-workers that I shared it with for a special Aloha-themed going away party was that it was delectable.

White Fruit Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
Just wonderful. I used all dried fruit versus any candied because I don't care for the latter. After cooling the loaves, I wrapped them in cheesecloth, brushed them with rum, and then refrigerated them in an airtight container for a week or so. Everyone loved them, adults and kids, fruitcake lovers and fruitcake haters ;). Great recipe that I will definitely make again and again.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
This was absolutely delicious! Everyone in our family, including kids and serious foodies, raved about it. I fried the bacon and crumbled it and then used a small amount of the grease to saute the onion, red bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic, cumin, ground black pepper, and cayenne, before adding everything to the crock pot. I used boxed chicken broth instead of boullion (4 cups plus 2 cups water), and the resulting thick soup was very flavorful with no additional salt needed. Served with sweet, moist cornbread. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe! I have been asked to make it often...!
