Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I made this for Father's Day for my hubby who loves loves loves carrot cake. I have tried many recipes and I finally got the ultimate one! He loved it. For raisins, I put in dried cranberries. This is the most moist carrot cake ever.

Pumpkin Cookies III
These are awesome cookies! They are soft and stay that way the next day. They are like little slices of pumpkin bread. The only things I did different is first I used pumpkin pie spice and then I heated up a can of cream cheese frosting for like 30 seconds and drizzled it over the cookies. Then I put a whole pecan on top. They were pretty and delicious. I made them the first time this last weekend and now my hubby wants me to make them for his shop for their Thanksgiving lunch. I am off to make them again, now!

Angel Hair Pasta Salad
I amke this for all my company functions! I would advise if you make it the night before and you take the salad somewhere. Take a half a bottle of ranch dressing to pour into it just before serving because it does soak up alot of the dressing overnight. But it is such a hit wherever I take it.
