Beer Bread I
I have never had beer bread before, so when saw this recipe it sounded delicious and easy enough. I was right, it is super fast and couldn't be easier to make. I don't usually have self rising flour on hand so I made my own by combining 1 cup flour and 1 tbsp baking powder. The only beer I had on hand at the time was a case of Samuel Adams after going thru them my son and I decided on the Sam Adams Chocolate Beer -- definitely the perfect choice. Oh yes, I increased the sugar to 1/3 cup as noted by a few other reviewers. The next time I made it I followed some other suggestions and added a cup of Mexican Blend and Cheddar Jack Cheeses. Thats also good. This recipe is definitely a keeper. My husband and son ask for it all the time.

Golden Rum Cake
This cake is really good. I made it when my sisters their husbands and children/grandchildren visited and everyone asked for the recipe. For the most part I followed the recipe exactly as is except for a few minor changes.... 1. I only had Captain Morgan Tatoo (dark rum) on hand, so thats what I used. It is incredibly flavorful. 2. Eliminated the nuts......I don't like nuts but no one missed the nuts. 3. I replaced the run called for in the glaze with Orange Juice since I am allergic to alcohol (unless its cooked off). Again, a fantastic cake. It is definitely a keeper in my house. Will be making it again.

Apple Dumplings I
I dont eat apples, but my husband and son really loves anything with apples. So I made this for them. Well, they truly loved it...they raved about it and have since asked me to make it several times. I did follow the suggestions of others and diced the apples then dipped them in a sugar, cinnamon mixture then wrapped them in dough the with a pat of butter. I also used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar and I heat the sauce over medium heat until bubbly (but do not boil)..Hubby said its the best apple dumpling he has ever had. Thank you for the recipe and suggestions.
