Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I used DivaJojo's suggestions and it was sooooooo good, brought to a party for the birthday girl and everyone loved it, I was explaining how I made it all night. My only very slight variances: adding just a touch (1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon) of lemon extract to the frosting. The citrus gives it a freshness and it makes it much easier to eat without tasting like a sugar bomb. I think the buttermilk and the sour cream in the cake batter do the same thing while making the cake nice and moist. I also eliminated the raisins, and used pecans for the nuts.

French Onion Soup X

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
I was going for vegetarian instead of low-cal. I made these changes: I browned the onions in 3 tablespoons of butter, added 1 teaspoon of garlic powder to the other herbs, added 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar with the veggie broth, and used a slice of swiss cheese instead of the parmesan. Brought it to New Year's Eve dinner party and it was dang good. Good base recipe.
