Good things come to those who wait, and sometimes to those who procrastinate. I finally got around to ordering some McCormick Vanilla Butter & Nut Extract and wish I’d done it sooner. It definitely lived up to my expectations, which had been set pretty high thanks to glowing reviews from people who said it was […]

Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake

This week I stopped at Starbucks and bought a piece of their famous lemon pound cake. The texture was dense, tight crumbed and kind of heavy (a slice weighed 1/4 pound!), but what I liked best was the strong lemon flavor. I think they use lemon oil, so I wanted to see if I could […]

Cream Puff

I thought I’d be making bowls upon bowls of pastry cream since I’m searching for a favorite, but thanks to Katrina’s friend Paige, I may have found “the one”. Like yesterday’s pastry cream, this one starts with 2 cups of whole milk. However, instead of 2 yolks and a whole egg, it uses 4 yolks. […]

Hot Milk Sponge Cake

The recipe I used was close, but the cake wasn’t quite as yellow and didn’t have the same crumb, leading me to try a few more variations. I finally found one similar to the Sunshine Season’s cake and will post it […]

Hostess Cupcake Copycat

Today’s sweet treat is adapted from one of my favorite America’s Test Kitchen books, The Complete Cook’s Country TV Show Cookbook Revised.  I love it because along with plenty of full color photos, tips and background notes, the book features American classics such as Glazed Meatloaf, Salisbury Steak, Creole Fried Chicken, and Slow Cooker Braised […]

Our annual trip to Disney World was one of the best yet. The crowds were fairly light, weather was tolerable (then again, we are from Texas), and some new restaurants were added to our list of favorites. I’ll show you my list if you post yours, but first I want to tell you about one […]

Oreo Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake

I have a great little ice cream maker, but haven’t felt motivated to pull it out lately and instead, have been using the Super Simple Ice Cream recipe from Eagle brand.  It’s the one where you mixed condensed milk with flavorings, then whip the cream separately and fold it in. The theory is that you […]
