Sweet Potato Pie

2 Cups of Sweet Potato
1/4 Cup of Butter
3 Eggs
1 Cup of Milk
1 1/4 Cup of Sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of Vanilla

Bake Pie for 15 minutes on 425 degrees
Then reduce the heat, after 15 minutes, to 350 degrees and continue baking the pie for 45 minutes
3 cups of all purpose (plain) flour
3/4 teaspoon of baking
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 Cup of unsalted
butter, softened ( I use sticks of butter)
1/2 cup of
2 2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of lemon extract ( I prefer to use 2
teaspoons of Vanilla)
1 cup or more of blueberries ( I like to
use one cup of blueberries but you can use how much you

The one thing to remember is to NOT preheat the oven.
Pound cakes MUST go into a COLD oven.

-After you have all
of your ingredients out, grease your tube (bundt) pan
-Then you want to sift
together your flour, baking powder, and salt. SET THIS ASIDE for now
-I use a
stand mixer but a hand mixer would work as well (it may take longer to mix)- mix
together the butter, shortening, and sugar- mix this for about 10
-add the 5 eggs one at a time
-after the
eggs are all well beaten into the mixture
-add the flour mixture
and milk alternately until the flour mixture and milk is
-add the vanilla and lemon extract
sure you stir the bottom of your mixing bowl to be sure that all flour
and the other ingredients are mixed in

Once everything
is mixed together add the mixture to your tube pan
Fold in your
blueberries on the top of the cake mixture when it is in your pan ( To keep
blueberries from sinking to the bottom I use partially frozen blueberries and do
not press blueberries to the bottom of the pan)
Once you have the mixture in
the pan- Turn your oven on to 350 degrees- then place the cake in the
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes- Check cake with a
toothpick and if the toothpick does not come out clean then leave the cake
in the oven for 5-10 more minutes. 
Once the cake
is finished keep the cake in the pan for 1 hour to cool
After the first hour
is up, take the cake out of the pan and place it on a cooling rack to allow the
cake to cool for 2 more hours. Once the cake is completely cooled you can put
the cake on your favorite cake plate or wrap it with plastic wrap.
This recipe only calls for 2 ingredients:
1 can of 15 ounce pumpkin
1 box of plain cake mix or spice cake mix

The can of pumpkin and the cake mix together. The batter will be very thick so be sure to stir the bottom of the bowl very well.

Preheat oven to 350
Put mix into a muffin Pan and bake for 20-25 minutes
Muffins will be very light and fluffy.


Box of Elbow Noodles
A stick of Butter
A block of Sharp Cheddar Cheese- shredded
All Purpose Flour
Salt and Pepper

When Making Macaroni and Cheese I do not go by a specific recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Prepare noodles for the amount of people you are serving
Once noodles are done add a thin layer of noodles in a greased glass pan
Layer noodles and cheese until the pan is full or until you run out of noodles.
Add a few small drops of butter on the top of the dish
Take a cup of milk and 1/4 cup of flour and mix it with one egg and add salt and pepper<--(This is the thickening that makes the macaroni and cheese think and keeps it from drying out)
Pour thickening mix over the macaroni and cheese and stir it all together
Top it with a layer of cheese and pop in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes
All cheese should be melted and the top a little golden brown
