Hubby has a new magazine called Cooks Illustrated. He likes it a lot. Today he made a spice cake, it was wonderful. He told me he had to mix the spices with the melted butter to make the spices "bloom." He made a cream cheese and spice frosting for the cake. It was really good. When hubby makes a cake you don't have to wait until dessert to have any, as soon as it was iced he cut a piece for each of us. He is also making a beef roast for tomorrow that cooks in a low oven for 24 hours. It is supposed to make a cheap cut of beef very tender. I encourage him to try anything he likes and I also make suggestions of things I like. I would like him to try some of the recipes on Mary's website.
