Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
Simply put... the best peanutbutter frosting around. I couldn't stop licking the bowl, the spoon, the spreader. Wonderful, not to thick but thick enough for topping my brownies that came out to dry. This is the only thing that saved them. My husband loved it too. Great recipe just "AS IS"

Zucchini Brownies
I was so dissapointed. This looked so good and from the reviews I was excited to make it. While I was making it I thought WOW this is so dry. I even went and checked online again to make sure I didn't miss anything like an egg?? I read others reviews again where they said they too wondered about adding an egg. But it turned out ok so I didn't add an egg either. But when it came to the part of folding in the zucchini, I couldn't fold it? It was crumbly, I had to smash the zucchini to get enough moisture to stir it. I finally added a 1/4 cup sourcream and 2 tablespoons more oil to at least get a real thick batter. At that point it was still like pressing/thick spreading... it into the pan instead of a batter. I cooked it and the flavor is great but it is really dry. like a dry cake not a brownie. I am going to look for ways I can tweek this to make it more brownie like. Maybe my zucchini was to dry? I grated it fresh? Im not sure what happened. Sorry I hate to give it a lower rating but thats how it was for me.

Smooth Poblano Salsa
WOW fantastic flavor! I was looking for the recipe for the green (avacado jalapeno tasting) sauce we always got at the taco truck down the street. This is exactly like it. I love it on tacos, as a dip or on tamales. I didn't know what hass avacados were and I think I used to big of avacados because mine was very thick so I had to thin it with more water. But it was still very spicy and tasty! This will be a staple in our house for sure. My husband took it to work and everyone wants me to make them some. I did add a little lemon juice to keep the avacado from turning brown as it started to do on the top, just a couple table spoons. Great taste!
