Thanks Nikki ...... couple of questions from a new frosting cooker ;-) One cup milk ..... I keep only 1% milk.  Is that OK? For chocolate frosting add 8 oz chopped chocolate ...... can I use 1 cup chocolate chips? Thanks again

I only have skim milk in the house..unless I am doing that wonderful pie then I have cream.  so your 1% will work.
The chocolate chips will work as well.  I would add them while the flour mixture is hot.  Add the chips then stir until they are melted.

Thank you.   Thank you so much for all the cooking help you've been for me.

Now ........ one more question.      How on earth do you get used to skim ~shudder~ milk?   I started using 2% many years ago when it was first introduced.   I made the switch to 1% about 5 years ago.  But I can't get used to skim - can't do it.
I drink milk with every meal, every sandwich and I want my fat!!

It is funny.  You get used to the skim milk.  when I was a kid and on Weight Watchers all I could drink was skim milk and I thought it was the worst stuff ever.  Fast forward to 14 years ago when I began my "lifestyle change" and lost weight I started to eat breakfast and I started with skim milk again.  That is pretty much all I have purchased since then and when I try 2% or whole milk I think I am drinking cream. 
I bet if all you purchased for 1 month was skim you would get used to it.  Then if you do not drink or use a lot the calories you save may not be worth it.  I would think if you do not have to worry about weight or cholesterol drink what you like. 
Life is way to short to worry about a glass of milk in the grand scheme of things!

Embarassed  I do have to worry - oh how I worry - about my weight.  But not enough to take any positive steps

I love red velvet cake but the amount of red dye used is a lot and red food coloring is not good for you.It is linked to hyperactivity in children and a host of other problems.I think I'll just leave the red out and call it velvet cake.From what I have read beet juice can be substituted for the red food coloring.I would have to do more research on the subject to find out how much.

I use LorAnn Red Velvet Emulsion when I make red velvet stuff instead of red food coloring.  It works great.  The color is really good (and you use less than with food coloring) and it doesn't have a funny flavor.
