David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I have tried a few yellow cake recipes but THIS ONE IS THE BEST!! I usually make cupcakes and this recipe was PERFECT!! I took the advice of some of the others that commented on this recipe and I beat the butter and sugar for approximately 6-8 minutes. I also used 4 whole eggs as opposed to 8 egg yolks and the only difference was the color (much lighter shade of yellow). The cupcakes were VERY moist. I used variation of chocolate, butter cream and cream cheese frostings and they all complimented the cup cakes. I also put a squirt of cream cheese filling In the middle.Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe! "DESERT DESSERTS"

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
I was looking for a GOOD brownie recipe and I FOUND IT!!! Like many of the others, I used butter instead of oil. I also used a mixture of Hershey's Cocoa and Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa. The brownies were so good I ate half the pan when they were done and baked another pan the next day. No complaints here~DELICIOUS!! I wish I could rate this with 10 stars!!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
A few neighbors got together to do a Progressive Dinner. The concept is you start at one house for appetizers and cocktails, proceed to another house for the main meal then finish at another house for dessert. I had the privilege of providing appetizers and cocktails. I wasn't sure what to serve because I have a few neighbors that do not indulge in alcoholic beverages. I also didn't want to spend the evening blending drinks and playing bartender and was concerned about a drink for the men so I decided to try this Sangria. OMG...this was the HIT of the evening!!! Even those who had a preference of not indulging had MORE THAN ONE GLASS! I followed the recipe but used Duplin Black River Red wine (it's a little sweeter) and I used Vernors Ginger Ale instead of carbonated water. I also pre filled the wine glasses with diced strawberries, peaches and maraschino cherries. I agree with everyone the key is to let it sit over night. The neighbors were in no rush to proceed to the next house for dinner and everyone wanted me to write down the recipe. :0)

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
OMG this recipe is the BEST! I have used a few different recipes for cupcakes and hands down this recipe is perfect. Reading a few of the reviews was key to the successful outcome. I creamed the butter and sugar until fluffy (approximately 10-15 minutes). I also increased the milk to (1) cup of milk and the consistency was PERFECT! I used a buttercream frosting and my husband asked when was I going to make them again! I can't wait to use this recipe again. So good...So good....So good!
