On the cover are old school type snack cakes, including little coffee cakes (the ones that come 2 to a pack at the store), Twinkies, Snowballs, and the chocolate ones w/ the white squiggly line.

The recipes for each are inside the magazine...I made the coffee cakes a few days ago and they were amazing. Actually, at first I put a Post-It on the page with some tweaks...more sugar, lower oven temp b/c the crumbs were a tad hard, more cinnamon...
I placed them in a covered bowl and left them on the counter overnight where something great happend...they morphed into the perfect little cakes...they tasted exactly like the store bought...the crumbs softened, the flavors came together...I'm telling you...I don't intend to change a thing anymore.

I want to make them right now, but can't find the stupid magazine...I think it got thrown out accidentally. I plan to buy another tomorrow because I want ALL the recipes, but right now I need someone to assist with the ingredient amounts. I'll post what I recall if anyone has the mag...please let me know.

Oh you're welcome, I'm glad I could help. You actually reminded me that I had wanted to try a couple of these recipes, I had forgotten about them. If you want any of the other recipes, just let me know I'll be happy to pass them along.

Enjoy your weekend!

dkelly...I did want all the recipes, but before I had you type all that up, I would've re-purchased the magazine. Thanks so much for the offer...really.

And linedancer...thanks to you, I don't even have to re-buy...

Well, I'm definitely not a Gators fan, I don't like football at all actually, LOL

The helmet was for my nephew. He's obsessed with football and dreams of being a Gator one day.

I'm in N. FL...transplanted from Brooklyn, NY.
