Almond Kisses
I've made these several times now thinking I must have done something wrong, and trying to get them to come out right. Don't get me wrong, these taste really good when they come out of the oven. The problem is the texture. They really don't puff up and look the way they do in the picture. They really just end up being piles of chopped nuts help together by a sugary glaze. They totally fall apart when you try to eat them. I have a feeling these would be really great if you ground the almonds down to almost the consistency of flour, but I don't have the patience to try them again to see.

Crazy Mixed Up Cake
This was a pretty good, extremely easy chocolate cake. It did have a bit of a salty taste (I used sea salt, not table salt), but I actually really liked it. I think it cut the sweetness of the cake in a really nice way. As a note, this is definitely a stand alone type of cake, it doesn't come out even so you wouldn't really be able to frost or decorate it. But it really doesn't need frosting or anything to be really good.

Sugar Nut Bars
These bars are basically just flour, brown sugar, and butter so the texture was grainy and heavy. It was super dense and had no depth of flavor, it was just an overly sweet lump.
