Vegan-Friendly Caramel Buttercream

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Quite unexpectedly good for a vegan recipe. I made this to top some vegan chocolate cupcakes for some friends of mine that don't consume animal products. My only critique would be that it seemed a little oily/greasy, so perhaps cutting the margarine content to less than 1/2 cup would yield a better consistency. Taste is excellent, however, the texture is the only problem I am having. Also, I am refrigerating the frosting to see if it yields a less greasy result after cooling completely.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
This cake is delicious! Instead of using baking cocoa, I had to use Perugina's Cocoa with Amaro scent. It lent the cake a deep richness and exquisite dark chocolate perfume to this cake! I found that I had to bake the cake about 10 minutes or so longer than the indicated time, but it could be my oven.. toothpick test your cake to see when it's ready. Also, it's practically impossible to get sour cream in Rome, so I used a plain yogurt substitute instead. It's delightful even with the substitute, and the only difference maybe that the yogurt makes it a little more moist, which I rather like! Perfect to pair with coffee.

Vietnamese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
A sandwich with fresh ingredients like this is always good, but this isn't terribly authentic. Missing the pate and fresh jalapeno pepper slices. Also, pickled carrots and onion are usually found in these types of sandwiches.
