Red Velvet Cake
I did this recipe twice, baking one cake right after the other. As another reviewer noted, you have to beat the icing well (I used a hand mixer for nearly 15 minutes before adding the flour mixture and for 3-5 minutes after), so that you don't have a gritty icing. The icing isn't too sweet, and worked well with the cake. As for making the flour mixture, keep stirring constantly, and the mix will get nice and thick. Cool it completely before adding it to the sugar mix. The vinegar mix is kind of crazy, because on the first cake I did, I worked quickly, and the cake came out a bit more dense than cake #2 (where I practically threw it in the oven, I worked so fast). One last note: food coloring. I used a gel food color (about a teaspoon), but if I had to do it again, I'd try the liquid. Mainly, because my batter seemed a bit thicker than on the video shown for this recipe. Either way, the cake was a hit. Good luck!

Banana Pudding IV
Made the recipe as is in a glass bowl (used more bananas/cookies to get a few more layers). Delicious! I beat the cream cheese at room temperature as others suggested, and even threw in some Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies to enhance the overall look. Everyone complimented the results and said it was the best banana pudding they ever had.

Sesame Beef
This recipe is so easy, and the flavor was good. I doubled the recipe and served it at a dinner a few hours later. I just didn't think the taste was something that I felt 'wow' about. Great for a quick meal, though. Update: I made this a second time (didn't double it this time) and served it immediately (also tossed in fresh broccoli I had cooked for a few minutes before)--much better!
