Christmas Fruitcake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
I doubled the recipe to make a 9.5X3 round. I used whetver fruit I had on hand(walnuts,cranberries,raisins,currants and golden raisins). I did not think mango would quite go with cake. I soaked the fruit in Apricot flavoured brandy instead of rum for 3 days and used 4 cups of that (doubled the original recipe). Did not have molasses on hand so substituted honey. Next time I am going to try adding some treacle as well for the color and deep flavor. I made this cake for my mom-in-law's birthday. Topped it with lightly sweetened whipped cream which was a nice contrast to the dense cake and garnished it with orange slices. Everybody LOVED it. The cake turned out to be rich,moist and delicious. This recipe is a keeper.

Beezie's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
This is an amazing soup. Very Filling, and tastes wonderful. I skipped the rice and the legumes, but it still tastes great. Infact, I tried it with the chilli and without chilli, I personally felt it tasted better without.
