    I was desperately searching for a good substitute for sour cream, but I didn't just didn't have the ingredients for it. With some good luck and extensive research, I came up with this variation which I think is, close enough to the 'real deal'.

    I found this recipe in Food and Wine Magazine. It really is wonderful! It's easy too!

    I don't use Wondra® enough to warrant buying. I found this recipe and it worked so well on fried shrimp and made for a lovely, delicate coating. Can be used in any recipe calling for Wondra® brand instant flour.

    I have a recipe in my cookbook for homemade angelica liqueur but you need crystallised angelica which can be hard to find. If you have your own plant, you can make your own.

    This recipe is posted in many places on the internet. I used it with a boxed red velvet cake mix and it worked out great. It added volume to the cake mix but not so much that the pans overflowed.

    To make a boxed cake mix even better add these 3 ingredients....It real does make a superior cake!

    I have often prepared these ahead of time and frozen the unbaked crescent rolls. Take them out of the freezer and let them defrost and rise on cookie sheets for about 2-3 hours before baking.

    A simple way to make a bigger and better cake mix. Makes a 13x9 pan come out very high and moist.
