Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Very excellent cake! The first homemade cake I have ever tried making. I used the exta 1/2 cup of milk as others suggested. Very excellent taste, not overly sweet.

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
This recipe is amazing! I have never worked with fondant before...but this was super easy to work with. I did end up having to add about another pound of powered sugar because it was greasy. And when applying it to the cake, it did crack a little. I think I may have rolled it out too thin. But all in all, this was a very good recipe to start out with!

Ham, Potato, and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I made the following changes: used broth instead of water for extra flavor, added a bit of celery, didn't use as much onion, added about half a bag of baby carrots cut up, and a handful of fresh green beans cut up. I think next time I should cook the carrots and green beans a bit before adding the potatoes since they didn't cook quite as fast. But all in all, this came out VERY good. Not too runny, not too thick. Even my picky boyfriend had 2 bowls. Thanks for the amazing recipe!

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Came across these and immediately had to make them for my 5 year old (his nickname is Chunky Monkey). They came out perfect! I used regular sized chocolate chips because I didn't have mini chips. I think those made it better for the kids. I topped them with a scoop of homemade whipped cream and some crushed pecans. Perfect!

Rich Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Since I am not a fan of mushrooms, I was looking for an alternative casserole to make for the holidays. This was a HUGE hit!!! VERY delicious!
