Homemade German Chocolate Cake

Helpful Reviews for: German Chocolate Cake This cake is the best! I read a lot of reviews and here is the advice I followed: Do Not Over Mix the batter or it will fall apart! Check cake 20 min. into baking, didn’t take the 30 min. the recipe called for. Make 1 1/2 amount of frosting. Add more cornstarch to thicken up frosting or add instant Vanilla pudding. I didn’t add pudding, because I wasn’t sure WHEN to add it in. Frosting took approx. 30 min. to cook and longer…

Creamed Peas and Potatoes

Today, I’m talking about plain ole’ down home comfort food. That’s right no sugar talk today.  Recently, I’ve been craving some good ole’ Creamed Peas & New Potatoes.  This was one of my favorites when I grew up on the farm.  My mom always raised her own garden fresh peas which made this dish even more spectacular.  I can still remember her making me sit on the front porch and shell out peas and fussing at me, “Now Cindy Ann, make sure you pay attention to what you’re doing and don’t…

Peanut Butter Cookies

Very good cookies. I added peanut butter chips. My only suggestion would be to bake at 375 for 10 minutes (instead of 12-15 as suggested in the recipe) to ensure a chewy cookie — after being in the oven for 10 minutes, my cookies had a slightly crunchy edge with a chewy center. All in all, very good!! I made this recipe twice. The first time I followed the directions as written. The cookies were okay but not delicious. My family members at a couple and then I froze the…
