German Chocolate Cake II
I tried making this cake for my husband's b-day and it was a disaster. This was hands down the most frustrating baking experience I've had. I bake, but only do cakes a couple times a year. I should have known NOT to follow the instruction to let the cakes cool in the pans. The cake stuck in the pans so badly. I completely lost one layer. Two other layers had to be pieced together. A trick that worked was to put the pans on the stove to heat the bottom a little until I could slide the cake around in the pan, then I was able to flip the cakes out mostly whole. So, DO NOT LET THESE COOL COMPLETELY IN THE PAN!! Let them cool 10 minutes or so, then run a knife around the edges and try flipping them out of the pans. The cake tasted fine. It's really light and fluffy. I used bittersweet instead of German's chocolate, so it was a little less sweet, but I thought it was great with the rich German Chocolate frosting. I didn't use this recipe (I thought the pics looked weird), I used the "German Chocolate Cake Frosting" recipe instead (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/german-chocolate-cake-frosting/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Thumb&e11=german%20chocolate%20frosting&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Recipe). I would recommend it for flavor, but the instructions aren't accurate and it takes forever to cook until it thickens. So, in the end I was able to save the cake, but I have never ever had so much trouble with a cake in my life. Geez!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
I love these! I add about 50% more breadcrumbs (as another reviewer suggested) to help the burgers stay together. I usually make a double or triple batch and freeze what I won't eat in a few days. They defrost well, and are great to have on hand for last-minute meals. And they are much tastier and cheaper than buying veggie burgers from the store!

Peanut Butter Noodles
Very good. It tasted as good as Thai food from a restaurant. I used rice vermicelli instead of Udon noodles and tossed sliced cooked chicken and green beans and carrots with the noodles. It was a great meal. The mix of spice and sweetness were perfect. My husband (who doesn't particularly like spicy or sweet things) gobbled it up.
