Summer -- you are absolutely right! NOTHING compares to a homemade Red Velvet Cake. Here is a question for you though. Would leaving out the red food coloring change the taste of the cake at all? I hate altering a really,really good cake recipe!! I guess we could call it a Velvet cake if we leave the red out of it.
Awww, red beets, I forgot all about them. I'm not a huge red beet fan, but I do like to indulge on a few on my salad when I eat at a salad bar. Yep, definitely seeing red with them too.
I don't eat a ton of anything red, well except for gummy bears when I was on a gummy bear kick a while ago. But I didn't notice red with them. I will not avoid red things totally if I like them. I just wish I could remember that I ate them BEFORE I go into panic mode.
Jello -- YUK!! I have to be really sick to eat it now. Like on a clear liquid diet for a partial blockage or something like that.
OMG! Beetroot does it for me, the first time i ate it i nearly passed out on the bathroom floor and yelled for my husband! lol lol.
Well, I made it, but I haven't tasted it yet! It just looks like a big white fluff cloud of that wonderful frosting. Gosh, I can't wait to have a huge piece later on this evening.
ps I did not put the red food coloring in it, so I won't have to panic when I eat it!
Good for you -- See what being informed does for you!!! You can enjoy those "red" items and not panic! Keep up the good work. You are doing just fine. So good to see all of your posts on how you are doing too.
