Carol's Cinnamon Waffles
I decided to try this recipe on a whim after it was emailed this morning. I must say that these waffles just melt in your mouth. They are soft & most importantly flavorful. I've tried other waffle recipes & NOTHING compares to this. Enjoy!!!

Maria's Pepper Steak
This marinade was awesome. I used this to make a round steak for my boyfriend (1.38lbs-2). I used all of the ingredients in the recipe except red wine vinegar. I used rice vinegar instead. I reduced the amount of soy sauce, honey, and vinegar to start off with (2 tablespoons each) and added as I went along until I achieved the desired taste using freshly grated ginger, crushed red pepper, & water. I used a meat tenderizer on the steaks, slit them diagonally on both sides, and seasoned them as I would any other meat. I let that sit while I sauteed the onions, pepper, & mushrooms in olive oil & then placed them in a bowl to the side. Then, I pan seared the steaks on medium high heat for 10 minutes, 5 on each side. I added the vegetables to the pan first, & then 1/3 of the sauce. Over the course of simmering the steaks covered for 2 hours, I added the remaining sauce, & alternated 1/2 teaspoon of corn starch & water to thicken sauce & reduce the salt flavor. My boyfriend LOVED this. This was my FIRST time cooking steak & thanks to Maria, it was a great success!

Coconut Cream Pound Cake
This was a hit for Thanksgiving. I did make the following changes per my Granny's recipe along with other reviewers' comments: 3 sticks of butter vs 2, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 cups of dessicated coconut, cake flour, 1/8 teaspoon of salt. I also made sure that all ingredients were at room temperature prior to mixing. Also, I baked at a temperature of 300 starting in a cool oven (no preheating). This recipe yields enough batter for a bundt pan & a small loaf pan. It was VERY moist & delicious.
