Banana Cake VI
This cake turns out moist and so delicious. Everyone I served it to raved about it. It was awesome the day it was made and 2 days later was still great and moist. I didn't have time to do the freezer trick as I wanted to get to bed so I baked it at 300degrees for just over an hour, then inverted it and let it cool overnight on the counter. It was still perfect. I followed the recipe pretty closely except had to use lemon juice in skim milk b/c I didn't have buttermilk, and I used whole wheat flour b/c that's all I had. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Mulligatawny Soup I
This soup is absolutely delicious! My husband raved about it and he sort of likes everything but rarely loves anything and this one did it! Based on other reviews I did increase the amount of curry and tossed in a little bit of cayenne. I had to increase the broth towards the end b/c it had boiled away a fair bit and was a little thicker than we like. I omitted the cream b/c it was great w/o it and I wanted to reduce fat. I also used half butter and half olive oil. I added the raw chicken right after the celery and carrots to cook it slightly before adding the broth. This gave the chicken a nice flavour. I also grated the apple and used almost a whole one (granny smith) rather than putting in chunks on advice of another reviewer. Thanks for a great recipe. We'll make this over and over again.

Pie Crust IV
I tried this recipe yesterday for a pumpkin pie. I followed the directions exactly and even some of the common suggestions in the reviews and it turned out dense and chewy, definitely not light and flaky. It was edible but not enjoyable. Most of us just ate the pie filling out of the shell and left the crust - hey it saved me from consuming several calories and fat grams! I will try one of the other recipes listed instead next time.
