Christmas Fruitcake
I made several cakes from this recipe for Christmas. I alloed them to age for 7 weeks. I had a tester that I would slice into each week to evaluate the flavor. I soaked the fruit in rum for a few days and brushed the finished cake with rum before wrapping it tightly in saran wrap and aluminum foil. I did not have to continually brush the cake as others stated. I left them in a very cool room inside o aluminum tins and they remained moist for the entire 7 weeks. Although the cake can stand on it's own, I did make an almond glaze to spread on top of it. I pretty much stuck to the original recipe; I did ground up almonds and added a 2 tbl spoons to the floor mixture. I used slightly less than the amount of molasses ( I had grandma molasses and they are very dark and strong); And I used an array of dried fruit as well as nuts. Thank you for posting this recipe. It will be my goto fruit cake recipe from now on. I have a ton of dried fruit left over and plan on making several cakes and store them for a year just to see how that will affect the flavor.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf
This is the first time I have ever given a recipe a 1 star rating. I like a good meatloaf. And was concerned when this one added sage as an ingredient but did not list salt or pepper. I followed the recipe exactly as stated. I did not like the taste.It was without flavor. Bland in the extreme. IMO the sage/beef combination did not taste well. I tried spreading different condiments to the finished meat. Nothing worked. This recipe is very close to most meat loaf recipes sans the sage and the missing salt and pepper. I can only conclude that the sage does not work with beef or the amount stated is too over powering for the size of this recipe.

Awesome Broccoli Casserole
I followed this recipe to the letter. Although it looks really great. I wasn't impressed with the flavor. It tasted too bready.
