Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

How come you don't have the nutritional info on the recipes anymore?

I made these, and they are sinful! I used half & half in place of the heavy cream and it worked just fine. Next time I would cut the topping recipe in half (it was very thick) and add the chopped pecans to it BEFORE spreading it. They didn't want to stay on top, even after I pressed them down a little.

These were wonderful. The frosting was like a fudge. Don't need to alter the recipe at all. I love Mr. Food recipes!

had these last night after Church.Thanks Shirley,they were delicious,am making them today!

Making today for Super Bowl Party

Yeah, another great recipe that can be converted to gluten free, using Betty Crocker GF Brownie Mix. We who have celiac family members love you Mr. Food Kitchen

Whpping cream buy in milk section, next to half and half.

I am always shocked when there people who do not the very basic information in regard to food prep. Hard for me to believe someone doesn't know "heavy cream" Thank goddnes that Mr. Food does such a great job of writting out easy instructions.

Senate Bean Soup

You don't have to wait for an invitation to enjoy this bean soup! Inspired by the one that's been served at the Senate Dining Room since the early 20th century, our U.S. Senate Bean Soup is a true winner. Between the rich broth, the chunks of smoky ham, and the tender-cooked beans, it's hard to choose what we love best about it!
