Real Strawberry Cupcakes
T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E!!!! My hubby had one and I had a half. I made 6 Texas sized cupcakes [cannot be bothered with little cupcakes] and they did bake up beautifully in 30 minutes. They were light and airy using the pudding mix. But after those positive points, it was all downhill. I even followed "naples" suggestion of the strawberry extract, which I had on hand, and omitting the zest. And, why does every cupcake recipe have cream cheese in it??? Wish I would have followed my own common sense and made just a simple buttercream/or vanilla icing. All we could taste was cheese....NO STRAWBERRY flavor whatsoever. What a waste! Actually, I doubt there is a strawberry cake/cupcake out there that actually tastes like strawberry. It's a very delicate flavor, not easily duplicated. Then to slather it in cheese flavor...YUK!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
Nice, fluffy frosting, however next time I will stay with my own ratios.......1/4 cup butter with 1 cup peanut butter. Mine tastes much more peanutty, which is the main reason to make peanut butter frosting. Mine comes out nice and fluffy as well, just maybe a bit more dense......more homemade like. NICKIE75'S is more like what you get @ the store......a lighter in both taste and density. To me, you just shouldn't need that much butter added to peanut butter.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns
OMG.....never met you Sally, but I love ya! This is a truly outstanding recipe for superb rolls - easy to follow/make, great crumb, taste, and heft. I am a novice @ breads, starting with the 5 minute artisan sourdoughs and progressing to partial mixer/partial kneading, and just recently got a machine. Actually, I prefer hand kneading, and this recipe gave me my first "epiphany"..... I finally got that ultimate "feel" of my hands on the perfect dough and it was heavenly! I opted to make larger rolls so I ended up with 9 baked for 17 minutes.....take a look, they are beauties! Thanks again Sally! And if I can create these, anyone can.
