Gluten-Free Moist Chocolate Cake
This recipe is really impressive. You wouldn't think it, but it tastes like regular chocolate cake. Hallelujah!! My non-GF family members loved it, and my Paleo friends were able to eat it as well -- and they enjoyed it. Another reviewer suggested upping the amount of water that the quinoa cooks in to make the quinoa a bit softer, so I'll try that next time (believe me, there will be a next time!!). Also, I baked this in a 9 x 13 for 40 minutes, and it was a tad dry. I'll start checking it at 35 minutes next time. My taste buds and my gut thank you for posting this recipe!

Chef John's Sloppy Joes
These are really good. The beef is flavored while it's browning (I put not only the onions but also the green peppers in with the browning beef), and because it simmers for so long, the flavors have a chance to meld. I really liked that it wasn't so soupy that the buns melted, but you have to let it cook the full time. Next time, I may make the second addition of water a little less. Thanks, Chef John . . . I won't be looking for a Sloppy Joe recipe anymore!

Buffalo Chicken and Roasted Potato Casserole
This is good with heat-control modifications. I roasted the potatoes in garlic powder, olive oil, and pepper. I, like other reviewers, didn't like the idea of putting raw chicken on cooked potatoes, so I cooked the chicken on its own in butter with about 10 drops of hot sauce, garlic powder, and pepper. When the chicken was done, I took the roasted potatoes out of the oven and mixed in about 1/4 cup of cheese. I then topped it with the rest of the cheese, the cooked chicken, the bacon, and the green onions and baked it for another 10 minutes. I served Sweet Baby Ray's Buffalo Chicken Dipping Sauce on the side. Everyone loved it, and my heat sensitive seven year old gobbled up the chicken. I thought the hot sauce gave the chicken a bit of a delicious bit, but he didn't notice. This is a keeper!
