Meatball Nirvana
My family loved these meatballs. I thought they were a little on the spicy side but they made great meatball sandwiches and I have enough left over for spaghetti and meatballs tomorrow night.

No Bake Cookies V
Well... These "No Bake Cookies V" were definitely a notable recipe, granted they were not the best No Bakes' I've ever tried but they were good. The Cocoa powder was a smart addition and gave it a chocolate bite. All together it was great and quite easy so make and consume.

Blueberry Buckle
This is more like a cake. I followed the recipe just as written. I didn't add applesauce instead of shorting or or use half the flour to cut calories. Another reviewer said that these are key components to the recipe and I agree. Adding a dash of cinnamon or vanilla is one thing, but the fat and gluten is something that has to stay. With that said, the cake was good - not great, but good. The blueberries did not fall to the bottom like some reviews had issues with. The cake itself has just the right amount of sweetness. If you take off the topping it would be much better. The topping was paste like and very sweet, not crumbly. I spread it over the cake anyway and when I had my first bite I took the topping off. Way to much sweetness for one cake. Also - the cooking time if off. It took my cake 45 minutes to complete baking, not the 30 as suggested. To sum up - bake the cake for 45 minutes and skip the topping. It will be much better. It's still a keeper. Thank you for a good recipe.
