I have been baking your goody butter cakes for the past 2 years. They are a number one with my family and friends. Everyone loves them and so do I. I also make your meatloaf and a few other recipes. Love them all. Your the best..

When I get to the end of my week and need a quick fix dinner I usually go for a nice chicken noodle soup with crackers or corn muffins.....my chicken noodle is different than most because I add cabbage, broccoli and egg noodles.....for the creamiest texture I stir in a heaping serving spoon of Ricotta and 1/4 c evaporated milk. I also use homemade stock so that I can bump up the flavor and finish it all off with a dash of Tony Cacheries cajun seasoning and a sprinkle of shredded parm. Let me know what you think of it.....my entire bunch eats this....

I say SALMON! Mango salsa and a whole grain rice! Make your "salsa" early and let chill(mango instead of tomatoes, sprinkle with lemon juice!). Start your rice. Heat oven to 350, season your salmon filet with seasoned garlic salt, butter, prigs of fress dill. Bake 25 minutes in foil sealed packet.
