Banana Cake VII

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
The absolute best banana cake recipe I've ever tried! This is now The One Cake I make consistently and is the most requested by family and friends. It never fails to get rave reviews, and it's so simple to make. I have adjusted the serving size up to 48 and baked it in two 8" round pans, a 9" pan, and some individual silicone baking cups for the leftovers. I've also baked it into a 9x13 pan as well. No matter what size you do, it'll always come out right. Usually I follow the recipe exactly, but I've also sub'd Greek yogurt for some of the butter, did 1/2 brown & 1/2 white sugar, doubled the allspice, and added nuts. Frosting it with cream cheese frosting spiked with Nutella will make your toes curl and just drizzling it with some Greek yogurt mixed with honey and vanilla (instead of an all-out frosting job) before serving will get you marriage proposals! You just can't screw this one up!

Lemon Grass and Chicken Summer Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
These were a BIG hit! I used some rotisserie chicken I had left over and since I don't care for cucumber I left those out, but I'm sure the small amount wouldn't detract from the deliciousness of this fabulous creation! The flavors were bright, the filling was substantial enough to make a portable meal (especially since the "dipping sauce" is already in the roll), and working with rice wrappers isn't difficult; just a bit time consuming (and worth the effort!). I took them to my brother's 50th b'day party and everyone snarfed them down in record time! I am now printing out the recipe to send to an aunt - she raved the loudest and requested it. These will also be going in my lunches, since they're perfect for my tiffin tin and bentos.
