Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2015
It turned out REALLY nice, BUUUUUUT, THERE WAS WAAAAAAY too much confectioners sugar. I ended up cutting the recipe in half. Ok. Fine. Then I added a half cup of confectioners sugar (icing sugar) and slowly started mixing and blending. Oh my goodness! What a workout! It was brutal trying to mix this. I ended up only putting in 2.5 cups of confectioners sugar, instead of 4, because I just couldn't stir it anymore. It was WAY too hard to stir. I also had to add 3 tablespoons of 10% cream (I didn't have "heavy" or whipping cream so I used what was on hand) and that made it the PERFECT consistency. Yeah, to be honest, WAY too much confectioners sugar. And mine turned out to be the perfect sweetness.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
I had to omit the dill as I didn't have any and replaced the leeks with celery but other than that, omg it was perfect! I used vegeta, a croatian seasoning, instead of chicken broth/stock because my boyfriend is vegetarian but it was a huge hit! I love the cream and flour mixture. Made it really creamy. Perfect cream of potatoe soup. 10 stars in my books.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
I have to agree with the Chefsingledad and also Speedycivicgirl. You need to add the cheese SLOWLY. I never use fresh parmesan. It's to expensive. Melt the butter first. Then add the cream and whisk and keep mixing it because if you let it sit, it'll separate. Then add the cheese a little bit at a time waiting about 2-3 min between adding each bit. You need to make sure you have the heat set to medium, NOT medium low and keep whisking briskly. Then last but not least...add whatever spices you want. I like parsley and oregano. then VIOLA! Perfect alfredo sauce. This is one of the BEST alfredo sauces I have made. Love it! Oh and I use 5% cream or half and half cream. Don't forget that. :)

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Amazing! My bf and I LOVE Alfredo sauce and this recipe was perfect. I used light cream (5%) instead of heavy cream and 1/4 cup of dried parsley and 3 cloves of garlic. Only because be both love garlic. It turned out AMAZING! I too would give this 6 stars if I could.

Cupcake Princess' Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
These turned out perfectly! I DO need to add, that I followed naples34102's advice. I switched the recipe up with their tweaks and honestly it was perfect! And soooo easy! My first batch of homemade cupcakes and for the first time, my almost 6 yr old daughter ate the ENTIRE thing WITHOUT icing on them. She loved them. So thanks. This worked out perfectly!
