"My mom came up with this when I was little because I couldn't stand the taste of sweet icing on cakes. This is a very rich icing but not sweet."

    I have (somewhere) a recipe very like this, using whipped topping instead of Dream Whip. Reduce the milk and use sugar-free pudding and you have a sugar-free frosting! Thanks!

    Delicious! I too do not like very sweet icing and this was perfect. I used cheesecake pudding, sweetened with splenda. I just poured the milk while blending, probably used 1 cup total, until I got the desired consistancy. This was great on banana nut bread..Thanks for sharing, Leanne!


Well where to begin with this year, so much has happened that I have decided to change it around one more time. I am currently seperated and going through a divorce. I am now the single mother to 2 amazing kids Nicholas who is 6 and Grace who is 3. I have also made the big descion to go back to school, which I started in August, I love it! I have another year and a half to go, but I am loving every minute of it. My cooking has changed instead of time to prepare meals I am doing alot of prep work ahead of time and can soon find myself into the OAMC. My mom has also recently just joined after years of searching for recipes, so I know she will be posting alot of my favorites from when I was a kid. In my spare time which I do not have alot of I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, excersing, watching movies, doing crafts, and cooking which is a passion. My mother and my grandmother taught me how to cook at a very young age and it is something I appreciate them for doing. I love having bonfires in the summer, my house is the one everybody kinda ends up at for a good time, we like to sit around the fire having BBQ's, having a few drinks and playing cards. I know sounds boring but I love it. In the winter months I do alot of dinner parties where everybody comes over for good food, and good times. My friends mean the world to me they have stood beside me through everything the one way I always show appreciation for it is to feed them. I love to bake, I am not a fan of sweets just like doing it and giving it away. My Christmas baking gets a little more out of control each year. I stumbled onto this site a few years ago and I am on at least once a day. I may not be one to be as active as I should on here with keeping up news and forums, but like I said I am always copying recipes down, one day I will get around to posting all of my reviews to all of your amazing recipes. The recipes you find posted by myself are tried and true. There is nothing I haven't made on here or are in the process of trying, if I think it is good I will post it for all to share, if I didn't like it you won't see me post it. Alot of my recipes are handed down from my grandmother so they are all good, these all come from my heart to your table, Enjoy!
