"I have been baking beans for more than 60 years and these are not baked beans. I have cooked real baked beans in my slow cooker using the regular Boston Baked Bean recipe. They came out great. Do not forget - you have to use real salt pork and molasses to make a good baked bean."

"I do not like instant cocoa mix. Is there any way to use unsweetened cocoa to make this? If so, what would I increase or add? Thank you, dearcat"

"Good basic recipe. For flavor, add 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, a pinch of sweet basil and thyme, some celery seeds or three cut-up stalks of celery. You can also substitute celery salt for the celery flavor."

"In any cake mix, I always substitute milk for water and real butter (unsalted) for the oil. Makes a much better cake. I also add 1 Tablespoon merengue powder. Although not a fan of instant pudding, I tried this and it came out perfect. I topped it with real whipped cream with two drops of peppermint flavoring."

No review yet. I have a tart pan but it does not have a removable bottom. Can I still use it? This recipe sounds fabulous.

I was so glad to see this recipe. I used to make this years ago and lost the recipe. I have also made it without the bananas but forget the exact measurements. Maybe someone out there knows. I am definately going to make it with the bananas.

I made this and added shredded cocanut. Great. I also need help. Does anyone know the reciope for Sunset Salad? I have lost mine. It is a molded salad made with lemon Jello, ground carrots, celery, crushed pineapple and pineapple juice. I know what is in it, I just do not remember the measures. You may e-mail me at noconnell@maine.rr.com thank you. dearcat
