Red Velvet Cake with Buttercream Frosting
I made this for my son's birthday cake, he specifically requested a Red Velvet cake with a Mario Bros. theme so that's what we did! I didn't have buttermilk so I made some sour milk (1 Tbsp. vinegar and the remaining amount of 1 cup filled with regular milk, stirred together and let it sour and thicken for a few minutes) and that worked just fine. I also didn't have regular chocolate pudding mix, but I did have the no sugar added instant pudding mix and used it. It worked out great for me. I doubled the vanilla, used HEAPING tablespoons of cocoa powder, used parchment paper on the bottom of the pans in addition to the grease and flour on the sides, used little jar of gel type food coloring instead of the liquid, cooked it for only about 25 minutes at 335 degrees and used my own cream cheese frosting recipe. All together it came out WONDERFULLY! Everyone LOVED it and even one of the people that didn't like red velvet cake commented on how good it was! I tried making 2 different red velvet recipes to have a dense layer for the bottom and lighter top layers, but the other recipe was a flop so I had to make a second batch of this recipe and both times it came out great. This is getting added to my "Tried, Tested and Great" recipe binder!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
YUMMY! Made this with only 2 differences from the original recipe: I ran out of peanut butter and ended up using a few tablespoons of applesause instead to make sure it wasn't too dry, and I added about 1/2 cup more oatmeal. Baked them for 11 minutes and they were perfectly slightly crisp on the outside but tenderly soft inside!

Buttery Soft Pretzels
They seemed to be missing something in flavor, but were pretty good.
