Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
I don't like frosting. I always scrape off the frosting from any kind of cakes. But, I was assigned to make cupcakes for kids’ birthday. Kids won’t eat cakes without frosting right? I am so glad I found this recipe. OMG. This is so good I can just eat out of bowl. From my anti-frosting standard, this is not a frosting!!! This is a perfect combination of the fluffiness of the heavy cream and creaminess of the cream cheese. Very light tasting. Make sure to whip up the heavy cream over ice. I used 3/4 cups sugar just because I like it less sweet. I whipped up the heavy cream until it gets a soft peak. I was worry that it will turn in a butter. It was still a little soft side. But, once I mixed it up with the cream cheese mixing, it all came together to the very nice consistency. It is the best “stuff “to put over my cake. Totally recommended.

Grilled Mustard Potato Salad
This is a wonderful recipe. I boiled the potato the night before and pour half of the dressing when it's still hot. Next day, I spread on the baking sheet and finished off the cooking. It was well seasoned to he center of the potato. Not many recipes stay in my cook book, but this is truly a keeper. I use garlic power and some salt, just because that's all I had. Krista, Thank you for sharing!!!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs
This dish has a very good flavor. It reminded me a Japanese dish my mom used to make with deep fried pork. Meat ball was a better idea and easier to make. Only the problem was not enough sauce. I double the sauce by using grape fruits juice just because it was only available. I would have used orange juice. I am pretty sure it would have worked fine or even better? So, if you don't have any extra pineapple juice on hand, it is a little tip for you? Since I made extra sauce, I added some onions and cooked with bell peppers and carrots. Overall it' a very good recipe. Thank you for sharing.
