Tandy Cake
Awesome. This is so similar to the recipe my mom made when we were kids. So much better than the store bought ones with all the preservatives and chemicals!!! Followed most of the recipe to a T... I used parchment paper under my cake in my jellyroll pan and it made it easier to cut and release in the end. I used a half jar of natural Jiff Peanut Butter, and only one pound of Hershey chocolate bar. I chilled the peanut butter layer before pouring the melted chocolate on. I also scored the entire pan into pieces before the chocolate completely set up. These are delicious right out of the fridge! But then again I LOVE chilled candy bars. I might even invent some "Tandy Cake Ice Cream" if there are any leftovers... which is unlikely.

Spaghetti Carbonara II
Goodness that was good. Just make this. I haven't actually had a lot of Carbonara out at restaurants to compare this to, but this was just heavenly. I could've eaten two portions. I was trying to find a way to use up some extra ham from Easter and wanted to do a pasta dish. I'll have to try this with bacon or pancetta another day. Upon reading suggestions I also, in a separate bowl, whisked the eggs, parm cheese, and a little cream and then threw the hot noodles, ham, and onion mixture in on top of it and mixed until all was creamy. Next time the only change I'll make is a little more garlic. Great recipe!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake
This was so easy - what a great (QUICK) recipe! I made an extra "1/2" recipe (alter the servings to 22 or 23, and use two small eggs or one really large egg for the 1 1/2 egg ingredient. In a two cup liquid measure fill milk to 1 1/2 cups after adding the eggs). The cake rose beautifully - perfect amount for the 9X13 if you add the extra 1/2 recipe. And to avoid the "cutting in" of the butter, I grated it while cold into the dry mixes and used the paddle attachment on my mixer to finish incorporating. Easy easy easy. I did add some extra cinnamon to the batter (1 tsp) along with the dry ingredients. I love that this recipe is all ingredients that I typically keep in my pantry!
