Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This buttercream frosting is awesome, with some of my own changes. As is the recipe works fine, but I prefer my buttercream frosting to actually use real butter, so that's what I did. I substituted real, salted butter for the shortening and omitted the extra call for salt, although the adding it wouldn't have hurt. I also used non-fat milk, but that was only because I didn't have any heavy cream in the fridge. The key to making this, or any frosting, is to first cream your butter and then add the confectioners sugar slowly. If you add it all it once, you'll end up with a big clumpy mess. Adding the sugar slowly allows time for everything to come together. Very smooth frosting and very tasty. This is my go-to buttercream frosting recipe from now on!!!!!

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I've bitten into a plain cranberry before. Let's just say it was not pleasant. But these! These were amazing! The sweetness of the sugar helps balance out the bitterness and tart of the cranberry. I love it! I took the suggestion of some other people. I replaced the egg with a tablespoon light corn syrup. Also, instead of using regular granulated sugar I used ultrafine sugar (i.e castor sugar, berry sugar). If you don't have ultrafine sugar, pulsing regular granuated sugar in your food processor would work!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Just like my daddy used to make. I used brown rice instead of white but it the amount of water wasn't enough to soften it up prior to stuffing the peppers. I stuffed the peppers with it anyway hoping the tomato soup would help it soften more, but it didn't. Oh well. Still had wonderful flavor. Next time I will just cook up my rice in a rice cooker first and then mix everything up and then stuff the peppers. :-)

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
OMG! These are definitely to die for! I've made them as stated with blueberries and the streusal topping and I made them again last night with white chocolate chips and fresh raspberries with no topping. Both times they were amazing. Definitely DO NOT overmix the batter. That is key!
