Got this out of Cuisine at Home magazine. When I saw the picture in the magazine I almost licked the page. So I made this for my husbands birthday. I doubled the recipe and made one 2-layered cake and 24 cupcakes so he could take some to work. For the cupcakes I cut the tops off and put some frosting in the center and then on top. So it was kinda like a layered cupcake. I also used my food processor to mix everything. Makes it very quick. Another hint from the book is to use an electric knife to cut the cake. Since the frosting is very sticky. We did that and it worked very good. Looked beautiful. Also came with a recipe for a Sweetened Sour Cream to serve along side this. The cake definately doesn't need it but it tastes really good so why not? My husband said it tastes like spice cake and a pecan pie mixed together.
This saucy salad is a dairy-based fruit compote. Its so good it can also be served as a dessert. You can make it low fat & sugar substitute if you want. I usually put lots more apples than it calls for. I guess you could adds nuts and all kinds of fun stuff to this too. Enjoy.
Found on another site. Its got water chestnuts, green onions, almonds, & curry powder. Very good. You can make in the morning but add almonds when you serve. It tastes good with the frozen peas but taste great once they have thawed.
