Key Lime Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
I made this cake for a cookout with the only modification being that I doubled the key lime juice added to the cake batter. I got lots of positive comments from the guests, but In my opinion, the cake mix I used (Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme) was way too lemony. I couldn't get the tartness of the lime to come through. The glaze is really where all the key lime flavor comes from. Therefore, I wonder if this recipe might be better with a white cake mix. As it is, the key lime glaze competes with the lemon flavor of the cake. I'm also going to try a modification--a pina colada cake made with coconut cake mix, vanilla pudding and pineapple juice.

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This is a GREAT and very authentic tasting recipe!! I was skeptical that it could be done, but was anxious to try and recreate my favorite cuban restaurant dish in my crock pot. Amazing!! It tasted EXACTLY like the dish I always order. The only adjustments I made were 1) doubled the garlic; 2) omitted the cilantro; 3) substituted red wine vinegar for the white vinegar. Served with rice and black beans and the whole family was thrilled!!
