Texas Sheet Cake III

Reviewed: May 27, 2002
I couldn't believe how easy this recipe was! I made it for a family get together, and it was a huge success. This cake was wonderfully moist, and delightfully chocolatey! My nine year old even asked me to save a piece to put in his lunchbox the next day. Not surprisingly, when I asked the crowd if anyone wanted to take home some leftovers, everyone requested cake. The only problem was, there was nothing left of it but a few crumbs in the bottom of the pan! I have a feeling that I am now the official "dessert bringer" for all family get togethers, and that this recipe will be used again and again...

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
I sooo wish I could have given this recipe a full 5 stars, as I made this for a significant family gathering. I will admit that I did not have the Hawaiian sea salt the recipe calls for, and substituted the Mediterranean sea salt on hand that I use regularly. Since the recipe did not specify course or fine salt, I felt safe using the fine salt I had in my cabinet. I got a little gun-shy when I measured out the allotted 1-1/2T of salt, and backed it down to 1-T. The results were disappointing...wayyyy too salty, and not "smoky" enough. I ended up rinsing 2/3 of the meat with water and adding it back to the crockpot to finish cooking. By that time, the salt had become "one" with the pork.Maybe my "salt-meter" is off-base, but my mother (who drives me insane salting food before she has even tasted it) admitted when pressed that it was "a tad too salty." (I DID NOT have Kalua Pork either of the 2 times I visited Hawaii. I would be willing to offer a revised review, should anyone like me to do so after they orchestrate my sampling of "the real thing" in the "Aloha State." :) Sorry KIKUKAT:(
