I was 19 years old, slicing up the first Thanksgiving turkey I had ever made in front of my family and a bag of steaming "guts" fell out.

Mary Anne's Carrot Cake
I made the full recipe and it was enough for a 9 X 13 and a 8 X 8. I followed the recipe exact but added some chocolate chips to the 8 X 8 for the kids. I topped both with a cream cheese frosting. The flavor is good but I found it to be a bit dry which surprised me since so many reviews said it was moist. I guess I possibly cooked it too long but checked it and took it out as soon as a toothpick came out clean from the center. I consider it okay but not fantastic. I'm still going to look for my "go to" recipe for banana cake.
