Strawberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Two words: Cake flour. It takes a great pound cake recipe, such as this one, and lifts it into the realm of amazing! Substitute cake flour -- for every cup of flour, add one cup plus two tablespoons of cake flour. I too used butter instead of butter flavored shortening. I followed the rest pretty spot on. I did add a bit more strawberry extract. Also, to help in getting the cake out of the bundt pan, I buttered then sugared the pan. Slides right out. My husband doesn't like sauces or glazes, so we just ate as is and enjoyed it as a fast breakfast for the week. YUMMY!

Simple Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
A perfect Sunday fall afternoon dish that makes the whole house smell wonderful. I didn't have stout, so used a lager and it didn't seem to harm the taste. I used boneless beef ribs, and they came out tender and flavorful.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Excellent dinner party dish. The only two things I changed was to use a cabernet instead of port and I had beef tenderloin tails -- it was very nice! One guest couldn't stop himself! I served with a cold green bean Turkish-inspired dish, roasted red potatoes and a simple cucumber and tomato salad with oil and red wine vinegar. It is a fairly easy recipe to follow and turned out beautifully. Would highly recommend, even for beginners.
