Marble Cake I
I followed the recipe to a t, with the exception of "substituting" cake flour for all-purpose (take out 2 T less per cup of flour and sift again). It was pretty good, but it definitely needs some modifications. For one, the cake was very dry - if I make it again I'll add half of a pudding mix to it to make it more moist. I also think the vanilla part of the cake could be more vanilla-y. After taking out the 3/4 cup for the chocolate, I might add a little more vanilla, too. I used 2 9" pans to bake so it made a thin layer cake and it took just under 20 min to bake. Other than that, kudos for being a very easy recipe to make and easily modified.

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce
I made this as a parting gift for company, and they were mad I didn't make it sooner so they could have more than one piece! Just a note, I used white chocolate chips, and they worked fine... just remember if you're going to melt the white chocolate that goes in the cake using a microwave, like I did, either (a) heat up the heavy cream with it or (b) reduce the power on your microwave, because after less than 30 seconds I had BURNED chips. I reduced my power to 5 AND heated with the cream to be safe after that, and was fine. I took the advice of others and doubled the amount of white chocolate in the cake, and the flavor still wasn't overwhelming. I also halved the brandy sauce, and it made plenty... I might use slightly less brandy next time, too, because the sauce was a little alcohol-y for me.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins
This was really good. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of two minor changes: Instead of using lemon extract and plain yogurt, I just used yoplait lemon custard yogurt, and I used fresh blueberries instead of raspberries. Lemon juice from the bottle works fine. I also recommend only baking them for 15 min - I checked at 13 minutes, and they still had a little way to go, checked again at 16 minutes and they were slightly overdone. I love that this is something you can mix without an electric mixer, and that in the end you only have two bowls to clean (I used paper linings in the muffin tray, so I only had to rinse that off after it was done).
