Quinoa Chili
This was a great healthy meal. I love how you can make it vegetarian by omitting the meat which we did. It was so satisfying and filling and made enough for a few more dinners and lunches throughout the week. I made mine pretty spicy but really enjoyed it with a little melted cheddar on top and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt to cool it down. Will be making this again and again, many thanks for the recipe!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday because he is a huge carrot cake fan. I've actually never made a carrot cake before, but this recipe really had everything and I loved the story behind it so I knew it would be special. The only changes I made were to add more cinnamon and a little nutmeg since my boyfriend is a huge cinnamon fan. Since I wanted it to be more like a birthday cake, I baked it in two 8" cake pans instead. There is a lot of batter and part of me knew when I was filling the pans I had filled them a little too much... rookie error. Since the cake is so dense, I found my cakes cooked a little bit unevenly. The outsides were getting crisp but the middle was still gooey. This was my mistake for departing from the original recommendations. If you do bake in cake tins, be sure not to fill them too high. Luckily, this recipe is very forgiving. Although the middle was a little more moist than I would have liked, after spending some time in the fridge overnight it firmed up nicely and now I don't notice a problem. The flavours developed even better overnight too! It is really a fantastic recipe and thank you to the poster for sharing such a family gem. Sam's legacy really lives on by making so many people happy with this wonderful cake.

Kristin's Fudgy Brownies
I was looking for a brownie recipe that was dense and fudgey and thought these might do the trick. These were pretty yummy but they turned out a little more cake-y than I was hoping for. I'll keep searching for my dream brownie recipe but in the mean time I'm sure I'll have no trouble finishing off this pan ;)
