Hot and Spicy Pecans
I really loved this recipe, but agreed with a previous reviewer that "something" was missing. I added a heaping tablespoon of brown sugar to the butter & spice mixture & that did it--all the tastebuds are engaged and awake, but without an obviously sweet taste. Also, I used my own blend of chili powder (cinnamon, ginger, cumin, and ground chipotle chili) and it turned out beautifully. Be sure to use good-quality spices because they really do get a chance to shine in this recipe!

Mexican Bean Salad
This salad was delicious, but the recipe makes a LOT of dressing for just three cans of beans. I doubled the beans (but not the dressing amounts) and left out the peppers (personal preference) and it was absolutely perfect.

Carrot Cake XI
I made this cake with a couple of changes (1c applesauce + 1/3 oil, and I only used about half the amount of sugar called for in the recipe) and it was absolutely beautiful. Moist, sweet, and delicious. Just a word of caution for anyone who uses the Metric conversion: I didn't need anywhere NEAR 400g of grated carrots to make up the 4 cups. I used two large carrots and that was more than enough.
