Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This is the best frosting I have ever made, I have finally found a frosting I can make! I never have any luck whenever I try to make my own frosting, but this one really tasted like it came from a high quality bakery. I followed this recipie very closely with some minor changes. Instead of flour, I used corn starch which I prefer over flour. I also sub'd half of the milk with whipping cream - cream always makes a recipie taste better! I also added a full tsp of pure madagascar vanilla extract as well as a full tsp of vanilla bean paste to the milk mixture after I removed it from the heat. I also used confectioner's sugar because I noticed in my first batch that the sugar wasn't dissolving well (I even used super fine baker's suger the first time), with the second batch, the confectioner's sugar was perfect. I did go with other's advice and beat the heck out of this recipie. Wow! This frosting is so light and creamy, it really was amazing. It is so versatile, it is a great base to build off of. If it isn't sweet enough for your taste, just add more sugar, or sub some coconut milk for a tropical flair, or add lemon or any other flavoring you can think of. I can't comment on using this frosting for piping as I don't pipe, but it did set up very firm in the fridge - almost too firm. This recipie made enough to lightly frost a nine inch layer cake so I would probably double it in the future.

Tasty Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
I don't normally like green bean casserole but thought I'd try this one out, hoping my kids would like it. My picky daughter wouldn't touch the gooey beans, but the rest of us loved it! I used a full small can of dried onions, omitted the red pepper and think that the mozzarella was unnoticable so I will omit that next time as well.
