Avocado Egg Salad
This is a wonderful way to add avocado to your diet. If you can get past the green color this is a healthy new way to eat an old favorite. The only way I will be making egg salad from now on. I left out the mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles since I did not have any on hand. Mayonnaise is not needed since the avocado adds a lot of creaminess and binds everything together. You can alter this recipe any way you like. I added a squeeze of lemon, a squeeze of spicy ketchup, diced onions and bell peppers.

Soccer Ball Cake
I made this cake for my son on his 10th birthday. I made a field using a 9x13 cake pan and a ovenproof bowl to make the soccer ball. I used the white frosting II/wedding cake icing recipes from this site to frost and decorate the cake. Used a paper pattern to cut out the hexagon and pentagon shape. Traced onto the cake with a toothpick. Used a regular tip to draw the outline on the ball. Used another reviewers suggestion to color dessicated coconut green to make grass for the field. My son's expression when he saw his birthday cake made all the effort worthwhile. NOTE: I ended up decorating the cake with a chocolate icing, since when I tried to make black colored icing it turned out a strange grey/purple mess. I used white frosting II recipe from this site, but my forsting came out very gritty. Maybe I did something wrong, but the kids loved the cake and ate it without any hesitations.

Crazy Cake
This cake is so easy to make and delicious it deserves 5 stars based on just that. I gave it 4 stars because when I baked this cake as stated it had a weird taste. Increase cocoa pwdr to 3/4 cp and this is a 5 star recipe. This is not the best chocolate cake, but considering how simple and quick it is to make .... one has to be CRAZY not to love it. I just dump all the dry ingredients into a 9 X 13 pan ... make sure baking soda does not have any lumps ... mix thoroughly ... add all the wet ingredients in a jug and pour over dry ingredients ... mix thoroughly with a fork until uniform consitency ... It cant get much simpler. If you don't have vingear subsitute equal amount of lemon juice. Tastes better after refrigeration and is great for freezing. I actually bake this as cupcakes and freeze as an easy snack to pack for lunch. My kids look forward to finding this in their lunch box.
