    Hi. I know this is bookings but I need help.

    Can I make the skillet cake at home and bring it to the show,

    Does anyone have a southerwestern type salad dressing or should I substitute the southwestern seasoning on the mix bottle for the italian seasoning.

    Margarita recipe anyone?

    Thanks to my friends here.

    Use ranch dressing with taco mix....super yummy :love:....add jalapeno.....go to recipe search on pamperedchef.com, do a recipe search for southwestern salad.

    Never tried the skillet cake....why not use the micro for the cake?

    Have fun!

    What recipe do you plan on actually demoing that you'd want to bring a skillet cake TO the show? I've made the turtle fudge skillet cake AT a show and it went over well.

    Easy and Magnificent Margaritas

    Here is an easy Margarita Recipe, you can make it with or without alcohol.

    (Single Batch)

    1 can frozen limeade
    2 cans water
    ½ cup fresh orange juice
    2 fresh limes juiced

    1 cup tequila
    (1/2 cup Triple sec optional)


    Mix the limeade and the water in our Quick Stir Pitcher. Use Juicer to juice half an orange. Use the Measure All Cup to add tequila. Finally…use the Citrus Press to juice the limes directly into mixture. Use pitcher to blend everything together. Serve in glasses first rimmed lime juice and then with coarse salt. Serve over lots of ice.

    I personally LOVE making a pineapple upside down cake....it gets a lot of OOOHS and AAAHS....and I almost always get 2-3 of the fluted pans sold. :thumbup:

    Melt 1 stick of butter with 1 cup brown sugar (30 sec in micro cooker). Stir and pour into base of Fluted Pan. Add pineapples and cherries (optional) in an arrangement in the bottom). Mix your YELLOW cake mix as directed on box using pineapple juice for liquid...fill with water to get to desired measurement (i.e. pineapple juice is only 1/3 cup and you need 1 1/3 cup water, then just add water to get to the 1 1/3 cup). Pour cake batter into Fluted Pan over pineapple and brown sugar mix. Microwave for 10 min....depending on your microwave size and wattage....start with 10 min, and add 1 minute increments (if needed) til done. The cake will rise high, but don't be alarmed....it's normal and will not overflow. :D

    The Slap Your Mama Margaritas from this site are awesome!!! All of my friends love them... no more store mixes for us! Might have to make a batch of these tonight! I usually slice up a lime and use that to rim the glasses with salt and then squeeze one into each glass.

    Slap Your Mama Margaritas

    2 cans 7 - up (I use diet 7-up or Sprite, so lower the calories a bit)
    1 12 oz. can frozen limeade
    8 oz tequila
    1 bottle Corona beer (no substitutes)

    Just dump everything into the QUICK STIR PITCHER
    and plunge. To make it even “slushier”, freeze the 7-up, beer and tequila ahead of time. Serve over ice in a salt rimmed glass. Yummo! :love:

    I LOVE making cakes in the microwave. I've sold 2 fluted pans at my last 3 shows because of it too! I've used the recipe Laurie posted and it is soooooooooo good! At one of my shows I made the cake before everyone showed up so it would be out for people to see. I did the whole demonstration & then we cut into the cake while the other recipe was in the oven & the guests were all abuzz because the cake was still WARM! It was a great opportunity to tell them about how the stoneware holds the heat in!

    Oh it is! lol My 1st show was with my mom as the host - got to love moms :sing: - and she wanted to do angel food cake in the micro....so I called my director and she said NO, NO, NO....angelfood cake apparently will explode in the micro! :eek:

    So mom asked about a pineapple upside down cake....my director said, let's experiment and come up with one....so we did, and the rest is history! :D

    Funny thing is I just had a customer send me a pic of the cake HE made for his wife tonight....got it via his fon! With a message saying, thanks for making me look good! lol

    Let me know what you think DessertDiva....with a name like yours, it will definitely let me know if it is worthy of ny praise! :p
