It doesn’t really matter how many Food TV spots Michelle appears in... she can’t compete with a woman who kills, cleans and cooks her own food.
Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake
Recipe please, then I can say I got it from a FReeper not Paula. ;)
I’ll bet Michelle has never even heard of Filet Powder and thinks a Roux is something you buy in a jar.
LOL, you bet. It IS to die for yummy. And now you can say you got it from good old FReeper pj_627 aka pattyjo:
Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake:
1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
8 tablespoons butter, melted
Gooey Pumpkin Butter Filling:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with fresh whipped cream.
cheers, and remember, just ONCE a year. ;>)
Have you ever made her Not Your Mama’s Banana Pudding? It’s wonderful!
To be honest, I’ve never had much luck with her meal recipes, but her desert recipes never get anything but raves.
You beat me, lol. Had to dig through my files and get more coffee. Slowed up my reaction time. :)
Oh my goodness! 2 sticks of butter and 4 eggs with a whole box of powdered sugar, cholesterol and sugar too die for. Literally. Yep, once a year!
Thanks for the recipe, I’ll try it at Thanksgiving and you get the credit. ;)
Sorry but that comment of asking the McCains and Palin is CYA Bravo Sierra!
Ooooh, I had to look that one up. Now IT’S in my file, sigh. I have always LOVED Banana Pudding. It’s a childhood comfort food memory. Now I gotta make THIS one.
You’re right, I’ve had much better luck with her desserts. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever tried a main course recipe from her. But, for all her lack of judgment, (Jimmy Cater and all that), she DOES have a knack for the decadent, yummy, heart destroying dessert thing.
No doubt, she's never heard of file powder, but you actually can buy roux in a jar. I've never used the stuff, but a lot of people have told me that it's good. Sounds crazy, I know. :)
Mihelle is VERY busy off camera - telling gay groups Barry will do away with “don’t ask, don’t tell...” and telling military families that Barry will up the socialistic processes inherent in military medicine to “solve” all their problems (not!) - she’s out there quietly passing out “gimmes” to groups as a policy maker - again, we’re getting two for one!!!
I quit watching Paula after she had Jimmy Carter on the show. barf
Last Christmas I made her Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake. It was a graham cracker crust, chocolate layer, then the peanut butter cheesecake layer, THEN a chocolate ganache. It was a giant peanut butter cup! So rich that no one could have more then a sliver at a time, but it was wonderful!
It's file', as in Zataran's Gumbo File', (pronounced fee LAY).
Okay, you gotta start posting recipes!
On one of her shows she poured a melted butter sauce over fried chicken.
Okay, dang it!, I had to look THAT one up. My son Jon, that boy would have turned into a Reece’s Peanut Butter cup if I hadn’t kept a firm hand on the boy while growing up. NOW, sigh, I gotta try this one on him the next time he comes home for a bit of his mama’s good cooking.
If I make the goodies for HIM, and the other kids and the grandchildren, lol, that saves ME from being alone with the stuff. It DOES call to me, you know. In the middle of the night I hear, ‘pattyjo, pattyjo, I’m here, and You KNOW you want me.’ LOL, and I almost always answer the call..... if I’m foolish enough to have it there.
You know, I know this stuff is not designed to build good physical health in the body, but it DOES, in limited amounts, promote lovely feelings in the heart. Even better, when evil grandma pattyjo, plies little grandkiddies with goodies their own mama tells them is soooo bad for them. I get such a charge out of that. Yes, I’m bad. ;)
“I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, thats how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person.”
Julianne Malveaux is a bitter, mean angry woman. That quote was an indication of the cancer of bitterness and anger that infests the souls of so many on the left, especially the far left. Really defines just who she, and others like her, are as human beings.
These people REALLY need to be beaten down and DEFEATED. We’ll never, unfortunately, be able to eliminate folks like her. There will always be these angry losers out there, so full of their own sense of personal rectitude that they see nothing wrong in wishing pain, disease and death on those they disagree with. We need to stay alert and on message.
(even though a break to share some really yummy recipes DOES help keep us sane.)
I’ve made that pudding, it’s pretty good. I agree about her deserts being better - some of the regular meals taste sort of bland. I do like her Chicken Georgia.
That's what grandmas are for! :-)
Yeah, I liked her a lot better before the Jimmy Carter episode, and now THIS. When will these entertainment people learn that as soon as they get politcal, they lose a good portion of their fan base?
Here ya go!
I made it at Christmas a few years ago and took it by my mom and dad’s. I had an armload of stuff and my mom said I could leave that dish there since I was coming over the next day (my mom does a big party on Christmas Eve and a relaxed early dinner on Christmas Day). When I went back the next afternoon she said, “I hope you don’t mind, but we had some of the banana pudding for breakfast.” LMAO
My brother is a professional chef and he doesn’t care for baking. We joke that he got the cooking gene and I got the baking one. So, I am never sure if her regular recipes aren’t turning out because of me or the recipe.
There is a lasagna recipe she has that was sort of okay. I don’t remember the name of it, but it had several (seven, I think) different types of cheeses in it. I only made it once, because the cheese didn’t melt very well inside of it. It did use a homemade sauce that I remember being very, very good.
“Michelle Obama took a break recently from the campaign trail “
Uh no ... this IS a campaign stop. Jeez AP, you may be stupid but we sure arent.
Annoy the Obamedia, election McCain/Palin!
I don’t think it’s you. It’s the recipes, lol.
ping for later
Of course, also deep fried cheesecake....it looked gross.
