Mom's Ginger Snaps
I make a lot of cookies, and these were really easy and turned out great. I doubled the spices per other reviewers and I might add even more ginger & clove next time (I like it spicy). I found that the cookies on the top rack in the oven cracked beautifully, those on the lower rack didn't really. I also rolled some into 2" balls and some into marble-sized, and the marble-sized turned out so cute and bite-sized that I'll do them all that way next time. They do spread out quite a bit so space accordingly! Rolled some in red and some in green sugar and they looked great for Christmas. Baked for exactly 9 minutes and they were perfect (just a tiny bit chewy still). I plan to make these many more times.

Fried Cabbage and Egg Noodles
I made this exactly as written, it was delicious! Next time I will back off the butter a little bit and will use garlic salt. It would probably be fantastic with chopped ham or sausage, although it's already pretty rich so in that case I would cut way back on the butter. Will definitely make this again!

Wedding Cake
I did make some changes: 2 1/4 c cake flour, used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening + 1T water, added 1 t almond extract and 3/4 t salt. I separated the eggs and whipped the whites to soft peaks before putting them in. But with those changes I will use this recipe for all wedding cakes to come! It is very important for all ingredients to be at room temperature for good texture, and also very important to take it out of the oven right when it's done or it will get dry. It is NOT a white cake (butter and egg yolks!) but turned out very pale yellow, has a fine crumb, is soft and delicious. I love it, and I am very picky about cakes.
