Lemon Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse Cake
This one received rave reviews from my family and coworkers! I baked the cake according to the directions on the box, but subbed butter and milk for the oil and water (I always do this with boxed mixes, as it gives them a much richer and more homemade taste). Instead of the mousse, I made a white chocolate buttercream frosting, by mixing 1 cup butter with approximately 2 cups of powdered sugar, then adding 8 ounces of melted white chocolate and beating on high for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. A great springtime treat!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II
So much simpler than I thought fried rice would be! I added shrimp, mushrooms, sliced carrots, and a little crushed garlic when sauteeing the onions. I made fresh rice, spread it on a plate and stuck it in the freezer while preparing the other ingredients. By the time I was ready for it, it was cold, and I had no problems with it being too sticky or uncooperative. This will definitely become a regular part of my rotation!

Key Lime Pie VII
Very good with a few slight modifications: -I made a homemade graham cracker crust, which is really simple and elevates the taste so much. I used "Graham Cracker Crust" from this website. -I used bottled key lime juice, as my local store did not sell key limes (and I'm too impatient to spend that much time juicing limes!). Because of this, I also omitted the zest. I'm not sure if this juice is a little extra potent or not, but next time, I will cut back ever-so-slightly on the amount of lime juice I use, as it was a little overpowering. -I kept my pie in the oven for 11 minutes and it never bubbled. It doesn't seem to have caused too much trouble though, as it has a nice firm texture after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.
