Cheesy Artichoke Dip

This is the MOST amazing dip ever! My substitution is of 2 boxesparboiled frozen artichoke hearts for canned. REMARKABLE.

Lancaster, PA help

I just went to the Family Cupboard website and the place looks very much like a place that I used to go called the Amish Barn in Bird-in-Hand. Then, when I looked up "Lititz Family Cupboard" and found the place you mentioned. Are they related? I used to like the Amish Barn.

What's That Coconut Doing in My M&M's?

Skittles rule. Conservative flavor combos or not, I'd be all over that.

Holy guacamole! That looks luscious. I'm diving in. Send a search party if I'm not back in a week.

So good that you make it over and over again (or at least 3 times!)

That looks great. Would I be able to make it in enamel coated cast iron, like Le Crueset?

Great recipe. Pretty much fool proof. Cookies didn't last the afternoon.

Vanilla Malt Frosting

Yum! Great recipe. Not too sweet, fluffy, silky and virtually fool-proof. My new "go to" frosting.

Triple Malt Chocolate Cake

OK, I made this cake last night and was prepared for it to be a total flop. When I was removing the warm cake from the pans a little chunk broke off and I tasted it. . . it tasted more like a foot than a chocolate cake. I thought for sure that twodognite's comments were coming to haunt me as I had used grocery store malted milk powder.

I decided to let the cakes cool and make the frosting/assemble the cake in the am. Cut to this rapturous moment as I bask in the afterglow of what might be the most delectable piece of cake I have ever eaten! The cake is moist and dense and when paired with the fluffy, light as air (and not too sweet) buttercream, it is just like a malted milkball, but better. Buttery, balanced and satisfying. Like something the angels hand delivered on a cloud!

Bottom line is if this cake is this awesome with so-so ingredients, imagine if I had actually had the patience to wait and make it with the quality malted powder. In a word, awesome! Make it!
