Black Bean Brownies
Not bad for a fake brownie :p After reading some reviews I added extra vanilla, cocoa and instant coffee (about an extra tsp of each). The taste is great but the brownies themselves fall apart. I think next time I'll either use apple sauce instead of/in place of some of the oil, or I'll take them out of the oven a minute or two early.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
This is some of the best cheesecake I've ever had. Great texture and just sweet enough (it doesn't even need fruit)! Just make DARN sure that if you're using a water bath (highly suggested) that it's water tight! It wasn't particularly difficult to make. Also, I wasn't sure if it was dumb luck, but I only waited three hours when the oven was fully cooled instead of the instructed five to six and it turned out fine (we were in a bit of a rush).

Tres Leches 'Three Milks'
I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, but since I can't, I'll round up to 5. :) I'm glad I read the reviews saying it was too sweet. I made a batch and a half in one 9x13 pan. I cut down the sugar from 2 cups to 1 1/4 cup, and added about 3/4 of the syrup mixture to the cake after it got out of the oven. The meringue failed (my hand mixer broke, sad day), but it was still thick enough to use as a "frosting". I topped it with strawberries and blueberries, and let it sit overnight before taking it to work the next day. The reaction? People loved it. One guy I work with thought about spreading nasty rumors that it tasted bad. That way he could have more. It was almost all gone by the end of the day. If over half the dish you brought to "Food Day" is gone, then that's a good sign. All in all, easy recipe to follow and fun to make. The only beef I have with it is the high sugar content. This one is definitely going in the recipe box to make again. :)
