Thanks. It was always a big hit at any gathering, especially when I made both the glazed version bundt style, and the powdered version in an angel food cake pan.

I garnish them with sliced decorative oranges, whole big strawberries, mint, or any other berries in season.

With both the orange cake, and the Toll House pies I like to serve fresh whipped cream and/or homemade ice cream served on the side is great.

I like to make my food on site, so the aroma makes folks crazy; and serve them warm. People come running fast!

Irish Creme

This is my second post here, and I am so glad I started in this thread. This is exactly the type of thing I was looking for when I set out to find a good board. All of these recipes sound delicious, I hope to try them all, including the crown roast!

Here is my contribution:


3 Eggs
3/4 cup Irish Whisky
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Coconut Flavoring
1 teaspoon Chocolate Syrup
One 14 oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Heavy Cream

Combine all, blend well and chill. This recipe came from a fantastic Italian restaurant, believe it or not. The best thing is that they would serve it from used wine bottles. Every meal ended with a complimentary cordial. If you were a regular, it was personally poured for you by the chef.

I have made it without the raw eggs. It is still just as tasty, but not as thick.

It's very good with pork chops, lamb chops as well.

Here is a good one for shrimp that everyone I serve it to loves.

1 stick melted butter
1 cup olive oil
1 bottle red wine vinegar salad dressing
1 or 2 bay leaves
minced garlic (you decide how much)

Marinate a bunch of nice fresh shrimp (you decide how many) for at least 30 minutes, then throw in the oven (350 or 400 temp, I forget which) until the shrimp turn pink

Serve with good crusty bread to sop up the juice!

Easy Shrimp Scampi

I made this one time and have been asked again and again to make it, altho' I haven't. This is so easy. I adapted it from a recipe from a restaurant in Bar Harbor, ME (my favorite place on earth). To make this Fra Diavolo, add some chile flakes or some chopped up ripe chile.

S+P to taste
Bread crumbs for topping

1... Trim mushrooms by removing stem and slicing the round part off stem end. Resulting in a wider stuffing surface.

2... Blend the next 5 ingredients together till well combined.

3... Pack each mushroom well with a teaspoon smoothing when full. {rounded not flat}

4... Top each mushroom with bread crumbs. {best to do this on an oven safe plate}
5... Bake @ 350 for 30 mins. till well heated thru.


Ps..... make extras if you bring them to a party they WILL NOT LAST LONG. The stuffing would be great for bagels too. Yummmmmmmy Goooooooood!

Kitchenelf you are so smart for starting this topic. This really is a great one!

I will be trying many of these recipes. Here is my contribution. I usually double the recipe, but now that I have a larger pot I will quadruple it because everyone always wants more and it freezes very well.

Bolognese Sauce

2 tablespoons evoo
1 small onion minced
1 carrot minced
1 celery stalk
¼ cup minced bacon
½ lb sausage
½ lb beef
¾ cup dry white wine
6 large tomatoes (peeled)
1 cup stock
1 cup cream

Sauté onion, celery, and bacon with evoo till tender over med heat.

Add beef and sausage. Cook till no longer red. Add wine and raise heat a little bit. Cook off most of the liquid.

Add tomatoes (I kind of hand crush then as I put them in) and stock. Turn heat to low. After about an hour season with salt and pepper. Cook another hour till much of the liquid is gone.

Add cream and cook another 15 - 30 minutes.
