Saltine Toffee Cookies
So let me start off by saying this is not an accurate review, as I have made changes and did not follow the original recipe. Here's what I did. Instead of the 4 oz saltines, I used 9 oz potato chips and smooshed them down so they were relatively flat on the bottom of the pan, but not to the point that they were crumbs. Because I used more than double the amount of saltines/chips that it called for, I made more of the toffee...I only made 1 1/2 times more instead of doubling it like I should have, but honestly I think I should have just left it at the original amount of toffee with the extra chips...I mean, it was GREAT, but for my taste the toffee just overpowered a lil too much and made it too rich. A bit more potato chip flavor and less toffee would have made it EXCELLENT! All that being said, you MUST try it with potato chips instead of saltines! I have had the saltine version before, and don't get me wrong, it's awesome, but the chips are just an unexpected twist that people just never expected...and you still get the sweet/salty combo and a nice crunch...needless to say it was fun seeing people try to figure out what was in them, and was begged for the recipe by the end of the night.

The Best Unbaked Cherry Cheesecake Ever
very light cheesecake taste...creamy consistency, sets well in freezer for ~1 hour. used sugar to taste, and added lemon zest and lemon juice to filling mix to make a lemon cheesecake w/ a raspberry puree topping.

Carrot Cake III
the carrot cake was wonderful...HOWEVER, using my better judgement, i only used 1/2 the sugar called for in the frosting and thought it was still was way too sweet (and i have a big time sweet tooth!) i added more cream cheese to equal out the sweetness until i ran out of cream cheese and had to settle for what i had, which i still thought was too sweet. I shared the finished product with our softball team for my bf's birthday and people were actually throwing away 1/2 eaten pieces stating it was too sweet! my recommendation? only add a little sugar at a time to get it to how YOU like it. you can always add more, but you cant take it out!
