This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
These comments are from their cookbook:
"At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"
I got this recipe from a friend. I make these often and take them to many potlucks, office parties, the cottage, picnics, children's lunch and the list goes on. Recipe from the cookbook "Just The Best."
This is a recipe lent to me by my friend, a Pampered Chef representative. She uses this cake as a demo at her house for her parties. Chocolate cake with a "raspberry pudding." I think it is like eating a giant chocolate truffle!
Guava and cheese (Guyaba con Queso) is a typical combination for Cubans. It is delicious! They have Guava Skins that are made in syrup and then combined with cream cheese and "Cuban" crackers - oh my!!! This is an acquired taste and one that is NOT diet friendly!! This was given to me by a woman who works in the activities dept and is trying to start her own dessert business. Didn't include chilling time of about 3 hours up to overnight.
Well, after looking for this recipe on here and not having any luck, I decided to find it and post it. In my opinion, this is the best pumpkin pie. Make your own graham cracker crust or buy an already prepared one.
Another signature dish. Very tasty, best wneh served cold. This recipe comes from elboricua.com. There are different recipes. I haven't tried this one in specific so if you have a better one, let me know!
This was from our local paper around the 4th of July, for a holiday snack. It was easy and delicious! You could probably sub. homemade granola for the pecan sandies and it would still be great. The prep time is a guess as I don't remember how long it took.
This is so easy and so delicious. I love cream cheese and strawberries, so when I saw this I had to try it. Instead of using store-bought jelly, I had made some sugar-free strawberry freezer jam earlier and that's what I used. Deeelightful! This would be great for a tea party or just a bunch of gals getting together to chat.
Paula Deen is my favorite chef - EVER! If I had to choose another mother, she'd be who I'd pick. This is her son Jamie's favorite birthday cake. I'm posting it here because not only do I want to try it, but I never want to lose it. And if you could see my office, you'd know that if I wrote it down, it would not be found until the day I stopped looking for it. So, here it is, safe and sound for everyone to enjoy.
