Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Best cake I've ever made / had... I cook a lot, but I don't bake much so I was worried about making a good enough cake for my husband's birthday. I used some of the modifications suggested by others -- white cake mix instead of yellow, coconut pudding instead of vanilla, coconut extract instead of vanilla, chopping up the coconut in a food processor before adding it to the cake mix and frosting -- and I omitted the walnuts and toasted the coconut without the butter. I used 2 9-in round pans and I think I baked it a little longer (perhaps because the cake mix already had pudding in the mix). But it was soooo moist and heavenly and delicious. He and I both loved it, as well as my coworkers who I took pieces too. I'll definitely make this again.

Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
This was one of the tastiest new dishes I've tried in a while. My husband and I both LOVED the flavor. And it was so simple to make. I followed the advice of other reviews, replaced the water with chicken broth and added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. I also added a little extra white wine, and 1 T. of cornstarch mixed with 2 T. cold water to thicken the sauce. It was fantastic! I'll definitely make this again.
