German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Made this for hubby's birthday. he is a huge german chocolate cake fan, and i usually just use boxed cake mix. NEVER AGAIN. The first time I made this cake it was time consuming, but 100% worth it. I read the previous reviews and followed them. * 20 minutes only bake time * spray Pam and floured the entire non-stick pan, then added parchment to the bottom. Never had any problems with sticking. * Doubled the icing recipe. * Icing recipe took 30 minutes on medium low/low to thicken. Removed pan from heat, let rest for 20-30 minutes then added coconut and pecans which had been toasted. I did not follow the exact amt of recommended coconut and pecans. I added them until I achieved the consistence I desired. I wrapped the cakes in wax paper and refrigerated them overnight, along with the icing. Brought them all to room temp (south florida room temp :) before icing the layers the next day. My kids loved this too. Absolutely worth it.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
This is a great recipe. We are NPC bodybuilder/bikini competitors and rice (brown and white) are staples in our diet. I was looking for a yummy off-season rice that would go great with our chicken, steak, and veggies. (found it works well with fish too). Saute the chopped onions, with the prechopped garlic for a few mins then add the rice. I sprinkle the rice with taco seasoning while I'm sauteing it along with the onions and garlic. Add chicken broth, SALSA, bring to a boil and cover it. The first time I made it I had to keep adding salsa &/or broth because it cooked down very quickly even on low. Really good. We add chipotle shake spice and cayenne to taste. Made with the pollo fajitas recipe from this site.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
I thought my kids would enjoy this, and I was right! Thought it isnt a *pretty* soup, it tastes really really good. I sauteed the veggies in the bacon grease, and added in a spoonful of sour cream in addition to the cheese and it's a total hit! For me, I wouldn't add either cheese or sour cream. Excellent recipe! Try it!

Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
My two youngest (7 & 9) and I whipped this up in no time. They even ate it. Fantastic flavor, super easy to make, and as made, it's kid friendly (meaning NOT spicy). We dug into it right away, but I know the overnight time will make the flavors even more yummy. This is a must make.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
This was by FAR the easiest sugar cookie recipe I've ever used. No chilling the dough (to be fair though, it was 73degrees and low humidity here in FL today). I used butter (would NEVER use margarine). It sat on the counter for 4 hours prior and wasn't complete mush, but was very soft. The only thing I added was a 1/4t of almond extract. Followed the other instructions exactly. They are crispy on the edges, soft in the middle, very yummy. Kids just grabbed the entire first batch and ate all of them.
