Banana Cake VI
Phenomenal. I mean, really amazing. I used a little over two cups of banana (four HUGE bananas) and it still came out perfect. This recipe is a keeper. The only thing I wouldn't do is the icing recipe. That is just way too sweet for my taste. I use one package of cream cheese, 1/4 c butter, one teaspoon of vanilla, and one cup of confectioners sugar. Just my taste. There's nothing wrong with this icing recipe if you like very sweet icing. 3 1/2 cups of sugar is insane to me for one cake's worth of icing.

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp
Ahmazing. I sub linguini. Sub red onion only because I didn't have shallots on hand. Also, I cut the parm cheese. It seemed unnecessary. It was sooo good. I will for sure make this again. For. Sure.
