Ricotta Cake
I was extremely disappointed after making this cake. I followed the recipe exactly and used a Betty Crocker yellow cake mix. Warm out of the oven I thought it was very bland and my husband agreed (and he LOVES yellow cake). Gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it the next day, but only marginally better. Maybe less ricotta and more vanilla might have helped, but next time I'll just stick with plain yellow cake. Will not be making this again.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken
Unfortunately, this meal was not appetizing at all! I was excited about it being so easy, but couldn't get over the horrible smell that came from this meal. While the chicken itself was ok, the "soup" it was in was not. Kept thinking I had done something wrong, but I hadn't. This meal went in the trash.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
This is quickly becoming my go-to frosting recipe. The first several times I made it was just for cupcakes and I had enough to frost an entire batch, but I rarely get 24 cupcakes out of a box mix. I just recently used it for my husband's birthday cake and to be safe I doubled the recipe and also added 1 cup of sifted cocoa powder. It made a large amount - plenty to generously frost a 9x13 cake with about 1 cup left over, so I expect for a layer cake it would be just about right. Amazingly, it doesn't get too thick with the extra dry ingredients...even with a single batch adding in 2/3 cups cocoa powder (as suggested by another reviewer). Flavor is overall very good - not too sweet, but you must use REAL butter.
