Shrimp and Asparagus
I made this last night and did it exactly like the recipe stated. Usually I monkey around with the ingredients, but for some reason I didn't this time. It was fabulous! OMG...everything about it was so good! My husband and son loved it too. I cooked the asparagus earlier in the day and had that ready. The rest went together while I cooked the noodles. Be really careful not to overcook them or they will be mushy. Eck. I'll definitely be making this again, for company, now that it's passed the home test.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars
This recipe is a keeper! After reading the reviews and suggestions I decided to use Duncan Hines French Vanilla (white) cake mix. I've used the yellow cake mix in other recipes similar to this and didn't care for it at all. It's too sweet and has a flavor that reminds me of those store made sugar cookies. Anyhoo...I added 1 tsp. almond extract, used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup vegetable oil instead of the margarine to cut down on the fat and calories, 1 1/2 Cups of Lingonberry Jam, 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice instead of the water as others suggested to cut down on the sweetness. Everything else I did the same way and baked it for 25 minutes. OMG! It's fabulous! Not too sweet, the crust stayed together nicely when I cut it and I had to arm wrestle my husband and son for the last piece. I'm really looking forward to getting creative with the cake and jam. Next I'm going to try it with Pineapple Cake and Orange Marmalade Jam. I'm going to sprinkle toasted almonds on the top. Can't wait.
