Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2014
I just made this frosting to cover Olaf shaped rice krispie treats. It's white, fluffy and DELICIOUS! I did make it on a cool dry day - that probably helped. I made half of a batch and it was 2x more than I needed. That's ok though - the kids are eating it out of the bowl. Things I did: heat water to boiling First - then make sure it doesn't touch the bottom of the DB bowl. Mix all ingredients before putting the DB bowl over the boiling water. Left out the vanilla and used corn syrup instead of Cream of Tarter. And, beat the out of it with a hand mixer. Things I wish I would have done: turned the boil down to the lowest it would go. Taken the frosting off of the boiling water IMMEDIATELY - I waited about 30 sec after I was done mixing. The stove was off & the water wasn't boiling but the residual heat was still there. Frost IMMEDIATELY - I waited about 2 minutes to start frosting and with the extra 'cook time' it over did the bottom layer of frosting in the bowl and made it clumpy. Otherwise, it's amazing - not too sweet and super glossy and delicious.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
I lightened this up after reading the other review... half of the butter and half'n half instead of heavy cream. Smooth it out with a hand blender and you have a super elegant soup course. The leek is so subtle but absolutely delicious. I would make this ALL the time if I had more leeks. Super Soup!

Carolina Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
This is GREAT! I've never really had fish cakes, just crab cakes but I liked the idea so I thought I'd try it with a little leftover cod. I made it according to the recipe the first time, all seasonings and baking. The second I tweaked it a little and it was AWESOME! Tweaks: Double the seasoning - Old Bay, mustard, and Parmesan. Halve the flour and add an egg. When it seemed a bit sticky I added a bit of bread crumbs, just enough to take care of the 'stick'. I formed the cakes, chilled for 10-15 minutes, then pan fried in olive oil and butter until browned. My 3 year old mixed up some tartar sauce - mayo, sweet relish, lemon juice and onion. Chill this for as long as possible before serving. Serve as warm as possible w/ lemon juice and tartar sauce and you will get compliments, they will all be gone and you will have to make more!

All-in-One Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I've never made this recipe to the letter I've always modified it - and I must say that I LOVE it with the modifications. First, I use only butternut squash, sweet potatoes and mushrooms for vegetables. I peel the squash and potatoes and cut to a uniform bite size. This is key as you're roasting everything. I cook the two chicken breasts and cut to a similar size. Mix these four ingredients together and season; 2t garlic salt, 1/4t each salt and pepper. Second, I take the bread crumb, oil, and parmesan mix and make it half again - so there is 3/4 c of each bread crumbs and parmesan, and 1/4+ oil. I think this takes this casserole to the next level. You need to know that this will be hard to fit into a 9x13 but as it cooks it all cooks down, just be careful while mixing and you'll be so glad in the end! I don't think this needs the zuchinni or red potato. I think that the zuchinni would be mush by the end of the roasting time and red potatoes are bland carbs that you don't need here.
