Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
Yesterday was my husband's birthday and I hadn't been able to prepare in advance for anything because I'd been sick. I wanted to bake him a cake that would be special. Decided to try this recipe and boy was it a hit! This will definitely be on our favorites list from now on! Like other reviewers have said, I used a 9X13 pan because that was all I had. It took a little more than 20 minutes to bake because it was deeper. Also, I wish the recipe said to melt the butter for the icing before you put in the milk and cocoa. I'm not a great cook and didn't think to do that. I just put it all in the saucepan at once and cooked it and the icing curdled a little and separated. But once I put the confectioners sugar in, it all blended ok. I was glad other reviewers had said to spread the icing on the cake quickly as soon as it came out of the oven. My thought was to let the cake cool first. It pays to read the instructions! :)

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
Made this recipe last night and loved it! It was raining outside and I'm sick with a cold so I wasn't about to go out to the grocery store for anything. Did a search by ingredients. All I had to work with was some ground beef and I did have some onions. Found this recipe and I had all the ingredients except the cooking sherry. I used red wine vinegar like another reviewer suggested. This recipe will definitely be on our favorites list! When I first cut into the "steak" with my fork, I thought maybe it wasn't done because it cut so easily. But it was done and it just about melted in my mouth. So good. The gravy had a great flavor and our house smelled awesome! I will say that there's no way you can get eight patties from a pound of ground beef. Those would be meatballs. LOL I did four. There's just two of us so we get to have it for dinner again tonight! :)

Persimmon Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
Just discovered we had some persimmon trees in our yard and was looking for persimmon recipes. Decided to try this one. Wow! They're awesome! I made them a little bigger than it said and they're almost like little muffins but still soooo good. Very simple and easy to make and delicious. And the house smells great!
