This one comes from the Food Network. Duff from Ace of Cakes was on a Paula Deen show. Overall a quality cake that tastes just like it came from the bakery. You can tell it's homemade and not from a box. It should be that way since it came from Duff, the cake guru! It does take a little time to make this, but it's worth it if you want the real thing. The addition of the baking soda/vinegar combination adds a nice touch. The cake is extremely moist but does not fall apart. I used two 8-inch cake pans and cooked the cake about 30-35 minutes - just made a 2-layer cake instead of a 3-layer one. I did not use pecans. If you don't have a one pound box of powdered sugar, just use about 3 cups from a bag. This cake tastes even better chilled the next day. Next time I'm going to try to make the frosting without coconut so it's just a basic cream cheese one. The melted marshmallows in the frosting aren't too bad either! You can use less blue food coloring and sub the rest with water if you want.
I tried this chowder after an ice skating party, and when I went back for more it was long gone. It is rich and creamy and absolutely melts in your mouth. It is expected and devoured at every family gathering I have, there is never any left over, and always people asking for more.
A recipe that goes back years and a great way to use up all that zucchini left over from summers crop, you may adjust all seasonings to taste --- if you are a garlic lover then you may increase to 1 teaspoon, I also add in a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little heat --- use only dry breadcrumbs for this --- if your seasoned breadcrumbs already have salt added then omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt --- as one reviewer mentioned that she dipped the sticks into Ranch dressing so you might want to give that a try using a low fat dressing or dip :)
A refreshingly different salad, we can buy Stilton with black pepper here, but you can use any Stilton or even leave it out if you prefer. I make half the amount of dressing as I find that this is enough.

Simple, but wonderful!! This was my favorite cake that Mom would make when I was little... for that matter, since I wasn't really that fond of cake, it's probably the only reason I ever ate any. Whenever I make this for gatherings, everybody asks for the recipe... and then begs me to make it for the next gathering, too. :)
This recipe was one of my Mom's. Easy enough to make, even for a first time baker and the results are a beautiful sweet bread with a nice texture. Enjoy it with your morning coffee or your afternoon tea!!
We really enjoyed this recipe. The Chambord really lends itself well to this dish and creates a nice fruity sweet that contrasts well with the heat of the jalapeno. The original recipe called for 5-6 ounces of olive oil, but we felt that 2 ounce was plenty. The sauce is really good so make sure you have some crusty bread to soak it up with. I served it on a bed of Hawaiian Rice (Recipe #179346) by Chabear01, but it would be equally good on plain white rice.
I am posting this recipe because it is my very favorite cheese ball ever. You are going to love it. Yes, the prep takes a little while but it is so worth it. Please follow directions carefully for success. Please do not do it with a processor as you want distinctive pieces of stuff. It is a very pretty cheese ball. Cook time is refrigeration time.
mmmmmmmmm Comfort food. We love the Blue Moon Burgers at a local diner. But after finding a deep-fried fly in my french fries, I refuse to go back!! We prefer our burger patties with no "fillers," just the beef and the toppings.
Mrs. Peterson, a lady from church, made the best egg salad sandwiches and she'd never really tell you what she put in them. This was my first attempt to duplicate her recipe. Her family thought she added butter when mixing.
