Born and raised in New England, traveling and cooking are my  passions. When we travel, living and eating like locals are the happiest times!

Ginger Caramel Cupcakes

I don't see the ginger in the ingredients? How much and is it ground or candied? I'd love to try these! 3/23/2012

Amazingly deep and silky. I added some peppered crisped bacon to the topping. This is a favorite. — roadnorth 1/22/2012
Buttermilk Corn Muffins

Buttermilk Corn Muffins

These were good, but I think i cooked them a tad too long. Dry and very firm. We tend to like moister and lighter. Will try again with less bake time. — rgcurrie@wbcable.net 1/13/2012
Hummingbird Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting (Southern Food)

Hummingbird Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting (Southern Food)

A-MAZ-ING!! A favorite for a recent birthday, no one in my family had even heard of this cake, now everyone wants the recipe. I was however more critical of my first attempt. It was a bit dry and I might try under cooking it a minute or two next time. I also left it out overnight to set the crumb before frosting (as I usually do with cakes), but i think not with this one next time. Definitely a keeper. — themeecer 1/13/2012
Cake Balls

Cake Balls

These were good. I would make them a little smaller next time, as golf ball size was too much for one bite. Plus they are VERY rich. I used toasted coconut frosting with the German chocolate cake mix. The coconut gave it a nice texture and complimented the rich chocolate well. I had a little problem with the white chocolate coating. White chocolate does not get as melty and loose as milk chocolate does (lower fat content). I had to add some fat to loosen up. Also when the balls are frozen and dipped, the chocolate tended to clump. The coating was thinner than expected. I might try not freezing next time. These are a keeper, with some tweaking on my part! — rwhanson3 1/13/2012

Yum!!! So spot on for a cold winter night, for a large crowd, with a roaring fire and a movie. This made our family very happy :) — allymhall 1/13/2012
