Curried Coconut Chicken
This was exactly what I was looking for...so tasty! I did add a touch more salt and sugar to my liking, and added some crushed red pepper flakes to turn up the heat. My husband likes potatoes in his curry, so I added a diced potato which helped to thicken the sauce during simmering. For a little crunch, I toasted some coconut flakes to garnish. This recipe will be a staple in our home! Love it!

Extreme Chocolate Cake
Holy smokes, this cake is perfect! It's rich, moist, and not too sweet. The frosting is better than any store bought that I have tasted...so I will not be buying chocolate frosting ever again! And I don't even like frosting! Since my husband and I just wanted a few bites of a chocolate-y dessert, I halved the recipe and made just a single layer cake with no problems...except we ate half the cake in one sitting! LOL. In an attempt (!!!) to take away some of the guilt, I used a whole grain wheat flour for half of what the recipe called for and an olive oil/flax butter spread (SmartBalance) for the frosting base. I also didn't have any milk, so I used a can of skim evaporated milk where called for and had no issues. I was surprised at the general soupy consistency of the batter, but had faith that all the great reviews couldn't be wrong. I did notice that you definitely have to let the cake cool thoroughly before frosting so that the it firms all the way through. This cake will be a staple in our household. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!
