THE Bacardi Rum Cake.....adjusted for today's box cake mixes by Salad Foodie

Several years ago Bacardi’s Rum Cake recipe used an 18 ½ ounce cake mix and box of instant vanilla pudding mix. Not long after that box cake mixes were developed with “pudding in the mix” which now are known as “super moist” or “deliciously moist.”…

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

An absolutely wonderful cake; most traditionally served without icing. If you're including kids, might want to add your favorite, but I love it the "old school" way!

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

Southern Coconut Cake

Southern Coconut Cake by Salad Foodie

Rose Levy Branbaum's "Heavenly Cakes" (2009) was the inspiration for trying something new for our springtime desserts. The cake batter was made from her Southern Coconut Cake recipe, but I used a traditional buttercream frosting. Everyone agreed the cake was just like Rose said - heavenly! I have simplified some of the steps.…

Baked Caramel Corn

Baked Caramel Corn by Jane Evans Bonacci

Original recipe from Jiffy Pop Popcorn. The trick to this recipe is to stir the caramel until the sugar is dissolved and then don’t touch it again until you turn it out of the pan. Stirring brings any undissolved sugar crystals down into the mixture and the whole thing will crystallize again.
